Bistro V

One of the most popular restaurants in town is Versailles in downtown Greenwich, CT. Versailles is known for its casual breakfast, baked goods (baked-on site) and lunch.


But dinnertime is ideal for a romantic meal filled with unforgettable bistro fare. Their Sunday brunch menu is nothing to scoff at, either, with live music.


Nestled among some of the best shopping along Greenwich Avenue, Bistro Versailles specializes in regional French dishes.



Even if you’re not in the mood for French, the waterfront dining area at L’Escale is a fantastic spot for a drink. Afterwards, head elsewhere downtown.


But if you are in the mood for a sophisticated meal, L’Escale is ideal.


200 year-old stone terra cotta tiles adorn the floors of this Greenwich restaurant. And the roaring fireplaces make the space especially romantic in the winter.

Elm Street Oyster House

I frequently get requests for romantic seafood restaurants. And Greenwich hosts one of the best spots on the Gold Coast.


Arguably one of Connecticut’s most romantic restaurants, in our opinion.

Elm Street Oyster House, as the name suggests, is located on Elm Street, which is just off Greenwich Avenue. Another hint the name gives is their raw bar, which is quite popular. But anything on the menu is delicious, and the atmosphere is warm and romantic.


Miku Sushi

The newest entrant on this list, Miku Sushi is ideal for a romantic evening. The kind where you want to put something nice on and show-off.


That said, Miku Sushi is not a casual place to dine, similar to the other dining spots on this list.
