Date Night Sweet Spots in Gainesville

Date Night Sweet Spots in Gainesville


Everyone needs a date night every now and then, even if it’s just with yourself! Our Florida Realtor B 🐝 has the buzz on the locally-owned, sweet spots for your next date night with your honey!

1. Embers

Embers boasts mouthwatering, wood-fired steaks, an amazing wine selection, and perfect date-night ambiance! You’re sure to enjoy their Gulf of Mexico Blue Crab Bisque, and of course, their hand cut 100% USDA prime beef steaks.

2. Northwest Grille

Can’t deal with Archer or Newberry Road traffic? Northwest Grille is a gem tucked away with a ton of fresh, local seafood options and more. Their service is top-notch and you can’t go wrong with their Ahi-Tuna appetizer and Stuffed Grouper Entree!

3. Emiliano’s Cafe

This latin fusion spot is a downtown institution! Pick a Paella, any Paella! They’re all amazing, including their vegetarian one, and their Ropa Vieja is sheer perfection. If you Uber there, definitely grab a few of their authentic mojitos!

4. Blue Gill Quality Foods

The name say it all! The food is quality! Brought to you by the same minds as Mildred’s and New Deal, Blue Gill does not disappoint with their fresh, local options. Even your grandma would approve of their Pimento Cheese and Pork Rind Fried Chicken.

5. Dragonfly

You’re sure to impress your date with this choice. Dragonfly is one of Gainesville’s finest sushi restaurants, but the deliciousness doesn’t stop there! Try the Miso Black Cod or the Braised Short Ribs, both are incredible!
