Celebrate Valentine’s Day Weekend With A Slew Of Romantic Events And Dinner Options In Saratoga

No need to fret over Valentine’s Day plans this year. Saratoga Springs has got you covered. Couples won’t even have to leave the area to enjoy a plethora of romantic dining experiences on Friday, February 14. Those crazy for crêpes will want to head over to Ravenous on Phila Street to enjoy a Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe Dinner, with a three-course meal of savory and sweet crêpes, an alcoholic beverage of your choice and live music by The Kaitlyn Fay Trio. Other Saratoga dining staples featuring catered specials on Valentine’s Day include Salt & Char, with a steak-heavy, three-course dinner; the Saratoga Winery, with lots of food, wine, desserts and live music by Sidetracked; and Fish at 30 Lake, which will have a menu featuring a “duet” of lobster tail and fish filet, or scallops and shrimp.

Of course, there’ll be plenty to do in town other than a traditional candlelit dinner. Get in the mood at Caffé Lena with the jazzy/ragtime-y Lovestruck Balladeers; or head over to Pint Sized for a Valentine’s Day Show with Luvallaby (Toga), an evening of delicious food followed by some fun music. The local brewpub scene will also have some heart-themed offerings this Friday with a Valentine’s Day Winter Prom at Artisanal Brew Works 8-11pm and a Valentine’s Day ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ Cupcake and Beer Pairing at SingleCut Beersmith‘s taproom in Clifton Park. And for anyone on the lookout for chocolates or roses (why not both?) head over to Walt & Whitman for a Valentine’s Day Pop-Up from Wednesday, February 12 through Friday, February 14 to pick up something thoughtful for your significant other.

And that’s not even all the Valentine’s Day events this weekend. Check out the rest of what’s going on in the Capital Region (and beyond) below.
