Most Romantic Restaurants in Corpus Christi
When you’re looking for an intimate dinner for two at one of the most romantic restaurants in Corpus Christi, there are plenty of options. The best restaurants in town generally specialize in seafood, of course, but this is still Texas – so quality beef is not hard to find. Here are some of the most romantic restaurants in Corpus Christi.
Johnny D’s by the Sea
Despite the name, Johnny D’s by the Sea is actually a few blocks from the waterfront on Padre Island. This seafood joint is a little hard to find, tucked away near Padre Bali Park, but is regarded by many locals as having the freshest catch of the day – no small praise in a coastal town rife with fish joints. The landlubber fare is not neglected here, with the parmesan-crusted chicken breast drawing much praise. With no website and a low profile, Johnny D’s packs them in purely on reputation.
Black Sheep Bistro
A quaint little place specializing in Island food, Black Sheep Bistro has a comfortable feel and an eclectic menu for diners who like a little experimentation in their culinary relationship. The Black Sheep is a trendy spot that just opened in 2009. The dining room is fairly bare bones in decoration because they believe in letting the food set the atmosphere here. Patio dining is available.
Some lovers only dare to nibble in front of their mate. But others know that a hearty serving of seared meat can serve to create heat between a couple, and for them there is Niko’s. This Greek-style steakhouse has a reputation for intimacy, with cozy seating and jazz music tinkling through the dining room. There’s also a selection of seafood and wild game, but more than a dozen steak entrée options are the real star here.
The best word to describe this French and American eatery is “classy.” The menu is a protein-heavy mix of Gallic and Yank favorites like rack of lamb, steak, braised short ribs, roasted chicken and seared salmon. If you’re looking for a downscale option, the $9 500-brie cheeseburger is a popular choice. Décor is heavy on dark woods and candlelight. A great wine selection tops of this little slice of Paris with a south Texas twang.
Known to many as the best sushi joint in town, Midori also features an array of Japanese and Korean dishes, and even a hibachi grill. The mood is low-key, modern and cozy, less old-world Asian than hip and sophisticated. Whether you like your seafood in the raw or carefully cooked, dishes here arrive artfully arranged.
