Default Romantic Places in Dallas for a couples ones year anniversary

One of my good friends is looking for a place to celebrate her one year anniversary. She is absolutely convinced there is nothing romantic to do in the Dallas area. I figured I could get some good suggestions here and pass them on to her. She just had a baby in March so she is looking for someplace quiet, peaceful, and with some privacy.

My wife and I really enjoy Il Sole. Their Osso Bucco (spelling?) is amazing, along with their pan seared calamari (not the little tentacle type calamari, more like several pieces the size of a large french fry). We love the restaurant so much, we had our wedding reception there - rented out the whole restaurant.

Bodega Wine bar is downstairs - neat place to have some wine and relax. Haven't been there on a weekend, so I don't know what the crowds are like.

1. Old Warsaw restaurant is VERY classy and old-style elegant. Tell them it's your anniversary!

2. Get a room at the Gaylord Texan and have dinner in The Old Hickory Steakhouse.

3. My own personal favorite, is Angelo's Spagehtti House in lakewood. Reserve the farthest back booth. Good wine list and wonderful Italian food!

My favorite place is Lola's, in the Uptown area. Good food, neat atmosphere, great wine list.

There's always St. Martin's Wine Bistro, on Greenville Avenue. Though, it's a little too "old lady" for my liking. But many people consider it one of the most romantic spots for dinner. There's a pianist, it's dark, etc.

Get reservations at the French Room. Book a room in the Adolphus (French Room is in this hotel). Have a bottle of champaign in the room and rose petals strewn around the room...

You all have some great ideas - we're celebrating our 20th in August.

I've heard that Lola's on Fairmount is really romantic.

I also wanted to add: Nero's on Greenville used to be quite romantic and I assume it still is.

Beat me to it. I vote the French Room and a room at the Adolphus. Pick up a copy of D Magazine and see what is going on that day, night, the next day that is close by. Gallery showings, musical performances, etc. Order room service for breakfast or find a place to go eat breakfast/brunch that they have always wanted to try. Go walk around Victory Plaza, down McKinney Ave and ride the trolley, walk the Katy Trail w/ a picnic lunch or the Arboretum the next day. Of course this all assuming that they have a babysitter for their little bundle for the entire night....... that does not need mommy. If they can not spend the night and just have the evenning then dinner at The French Room w/ no hurry to be any where else. Then go stroll around Victory Plaza or McKinney Ave and find a place to stop in for an after dinner drink before heading back home to baby.

Nero's closed months ago.
It's Lola, not Lola's.
York Street is also wonderful, and in the same style as Lola. Also Suze (sooz) is a great place, too.
Have fun!
