Located right on the Tampa Riverwalk with gorgeous views, a fun outside area, a stellar wine list and outstanding menu, you can’t go wrong having a night out at Ulele.  Be sure to try the charbroiled oysters! The Caymus Cabernet is reasonably priced here as well, so be sure to grab a bottle.

Columbia Restaurant Ybor

The Columbia Restaurant in Ybor is a piece of Tampa history. I’m sure it will always be on my list of best date night Tampa restaurants for that reason alone! Go for the incredible sangria, the homemade bread and the 1905 salad, but be sure to take in a piece of the history while you are there too.

Sacred Pepper

This one is not too far from our house, so we end up at Sacred Pepper frequently. The food is delicious. I definitely recommend the blackened steak bites for an appetizer, and the short rib pasta is a family favorite. For dessert, the bread pudding is remarkable. If your wine tastes are a bit higher end, just ask for the Reserve Wine List.


Datz has a fun atmosphere, eclectic eats and out of the this world desserts.  Be sure to come hungry because the portions are HUGE.


A cute little Italian restaurant actually in North Tampa. Well, more like Land O’ Lakes. It’s been there for over 15 years and is family run. They also believe in farm to table eats, so everything is fresh and delicious. The do have a gluten-free menu for those with sensitivities as well.

Sparkman’s Wharf

I know, I promised 5 best date night Tampa restaurants, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to add this one because it’s such a fun place to go on a date. Not sure what kind of food you want but you know you want a fun atmosphere? Head to Sparkman’s Wharf! There are a lot of options, but no assigned seating, so keep a look out for an open table. They also have entertainment at night, and it’s on the water! We really like the empanadas at Montados, and the pizza at The Corners was also a favorite.
