Enjoy Valentine’s Day at Home With Help From These Atlanta Restaurants

From romantic takeout meals paired with Champagne to packages of sweet treats, and more

View as Map

Valentine’s Day will be a much more subdued affair this year. With indoor gatherings still ill-advised by health officials during the pandemic, restaurants and bakeries across Atlanta stepped up to put together special takeout menus and romantic packages filled with sweet treats to help people celebrate love and special friendships at home. For those planning to dine out on Valentine’s Day, please wear a mask when speaking with restaurant staff and when not eating or drinking. Remember to tip your server generously.

Looking for wine or Champagne to pair with dinner? Check out these 13 wine shops around Atlanta.

Disclaimer: A number of restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the Georgia Department of Health. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
