Good food is the key to everyone’s heart. That is why you should pay special attention to where you take your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day.

2016 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704 | $$

No other pizza place in Berkeley has an vibe like Lucia’s. Everything in the restaurant is candlelit and bathed in the pink neon of the exterior sign. Not to mention, this is one of the best slices you can get in Berkeley (we recommend the prosciutto and arugula pizza).


2109 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA 94709 | $$

Located in a quaint little cabin on Northside, this French restaurant is about as romantic as a place can get. On the benches outside, you can sample the restaurant’s signature potato puffs and gaze at the stars as you eat.

Comal has amazing Mexican food and even better margaritas to win the hearts of everyone. The lighting is dim and the setup is intimate, making it perfect for a Valentine’s Day date. Order the house crisps and guacamole for a real treat.


2327 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704 | $$


Nothing else says romance as much as brick walls and fairy lights. Venus has all the ingredients of a restaurant that will make your loved one turn green. It’s also a great place for brunch if you want to start your V-Day early.

Angeline’s Louisiana kitchen

2261 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704 | $$


Shake things up by bringing your honey to this delicious Cajun restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Filling the belly of your date with comfort food (especially jambalaya) is a great way to say “I love you.”

Belgian Waffles Little Gem

2468 Telegraph Ave A, Berkeley, CA 94704 | $


Who needs a real Valentine’s Day dinner when you can just have waffles? Sometimes it’s good to stay casual on V-Day, especially if you’re short on cash or not exactly ‘official’ with your date yet. Plus, we bet you waffles topped with Nutella and whipped cream will impress your boo more than any fancy meal.

No matter where you decide to take your beloved this Valentine’s Day, we at The Clog hope you have a wonderful meal and an even better night!
