On one hand, the place you decide on going to can dissolve any tension that may have previously been there by creating a more blissful ambiance. On the other hand, choosing the wrong place with bad food and service can affect how you and your significant other’s mood and could be detrimental to the relationship. In Columbia, there are many great place to eat, but here are 5 that are my absolute favorite in ensuring that my date nights are pleasant.
Kobe sets the standard for what a date night should consist of. Walking into Kobe, the first thought I had was that it was the perfect blend of quality, quantity and entertainment. The chefs prepare all of the food in front of the customers. They often start by creating a large fire on the grill to grab the customers attention. If there was any ice that need breaking, this is sure to melt all the tension away. From the chicken to the steak, the whole menu is full of delicious food
2. Room 38
Room 38 is a place that atmosphere will set the mood for a romantic evening. When you walk through the door, you see dimmed lights and candles on every table. This ambiance coupled with the great food makes Room 38 a go-to date night.
