Romantic New Year’s Eve Dinner Suggestions in Kitsilano

Flower and table setting for romantic new years eve dinnerNot everyone likes the big party on New Year’s Eve. Sometimes it’s better to do something smaller and more romantic after days of brunches and dinners with family and friends. Happily, the Kitsilano neighbourhood has plenty of romantic spots where you can reserve a table for this special night. Here are some of our suggestions.

La Quercia is an organic Italian restaurant that’s perfect for a romantic evening. With a focus on northern Italian food and a truly great wine list (complimented by the restaurant’s own wine bar), it is a great spot to celebrate the arrival of the New Year in style. 4th at Alma. Reservations recommended.

If seafood and Pacific Northwest cuisine is more your thing, try Bishop’s, a truly unique restaurant with a farm-to-table menu inspired by local offerings. The menu is meat-focused, so it might not be the best choice for vegetarians, but for a romantic New Year’s Eve celebration featuring BC’s best ingredients, it should be your first choice. 2183 West 4th.

For a unique experience to bring in the New Year, try Dark Table, where your meal is served completely in the dark. This enhances the taste and smell of your food and provides a new perspective on dining. Dark Table is gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Reservations are recommended. 2611 West 4th.

Our last suggestion is another Italian restaurant, the Q4 Ristorante. With exceptional service, high-quality food and a nicely curated wine list, this is the place to go to celebrate the New Year in style. Reservations are of course recommended. 2563 W Broadway.
