In case you forgot, let us remind you that today is a very important day for lovers. Yes, my forgetful friends, it’s Valentine’s Day, which means you better hustle out to the store to grab whatever remaining flowers they have, some chocolates, and a card ASAP. But, if you’re really looking to impress your partner, you could always try to get a last-minute reservation at the most romantic restaurant in the country: The Charleston Grill.
This isn’t us picking our favorites either. The Charleston Grill was named the most romantic spot by TripAdvisor, who named it as such based on millions of reviews and opinions from its users. The ranking also took into account the quality and quantity of recent reviews combined with the degree to which the property is considered romantic.
"As Valentine's Day is the biggest date night of the year, we have surfaced a list of TripAdvisor diners' favorite romantic restaurants in America," Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president for TripAdvisor Restaurants, said in a statement.
So, what makes The Charleston Grill so special? According to one diner who posted on TripAdvisor, it’s this: "From the moment you walk through the door, you feel so special. The highly trained staff is amazing and willing to meet your every need. Such a classy place with classy food. This will stay on our list of top restaurants we've been to in the U.S.!"
According to TripAdvisor, if you decide to go you simply must order the crab cake, foie gras, or the rack of lamb.
If you can’t make it to Charleston on such short notice, don’t worry, TripAdvisor’s list includes 24 more romantic restaurants around the country. Those spots include Café Monarch in Scottsdale, Arizona; Bohanan's Prime Steaks and Seafood in San Antonio, Texas; Le Vallauris in Palm Springs, California; Charleston Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland; Chandlers Steakhouse in Boise, Idaho; The Forge in Miami Beach, Florida; August in New Orleans, Louisiana; Summer House Steak & Seafood in Siesta Key, Florida; and Daniel in New York City.

If you’re really, really, looking to take things over the top you could always book a first-class flight for you and your honey to the Southern Italian town of Polignano a Mare, where you’ll find what might just be the most romantic restaurant in the world. Because you’ll do just about anything for love, right?
