If you’re looking for a Michelin-level dinner experience, there are 28 restaurants to choose from. For the most romantic spots to eat, you can check out Abrazo for its Spanish cuisine, Bouche, or Chapeau if you want something French. For the best view (feels like you can reach out and touch the Bay Bridge), check out Epic Steak. 

Coit Tower and Telegraph Hill

Embark on a romantic adventure to Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill. The panoramic views of the city provide a backdrop for shared moments and whispered conversations. You will meet a flock of pretty feral parrots or witness colorful murals. The journey up the hill itself is a romantic escapade. 

Ghirardelli Square and a Bay Cruise

Head to Ghirardelli Square for a sweet treat at the famous chocolate shop. Afterwards, embark on a romantic bay cruise. There are several sunset cruises to choose from. Feel the wind in your hair as you sail past Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge. The views of the city from the water are incomparable.

City Lights at Twin Peaks

For a grand finale, drive up to Twin Peaks at night. Twin Peaks is a set of hills in central San Francisco. These two peaks, East Twin Peak and West Twin Peak, provide breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the expansive Bay Area.
