Et Voilà! French Bistro
Et Voilà! has a 4.7 star rating and was voted as the best French Restaurant in San Diego in 2022. One reviewer said that this was the “Best French restaurant in town! Food is impeccable and creative, yet authentic. Service couldn't be better.”
This restaurant is great for people who have a lower budget for date night, but still want to go to an authentic French Restaurant that feels fancy because it is very affordable.
Et Voilà’s exquisite menu offers a wide variety of authentic French food, from French Onion soup, to Escargot! The fromages were exquisite and the wine was amazing! Every time I go here I am blown away with how good everything tastes!
Plus, the chef at this place is French, so you know that it has to be good french food!
Et Voilà is perfect for dates because it’s not too expensive, but reservations are highly recommended so you don’t have to spend all of your time waiting to get in. If you want it to seem really fancy without spending your life savings, then this is the perfect restaurant to take that special someone to.

The WineSellar and Brasserie
In 2019, the WineSellar and Brasserie was put onto a list of the 100 best restaurants in the U.S. If you want to take your date somewhere really fancy, then this is the place.
The food here is simply amazing. It is by far the best French food I have ever had. If you love french food then I highly suggest you come here at least once in your life. It is almost as good as going to France but without having to get a passport or spend a lot of money.
This place easily has the best wine selection in all of San Diego, and it permits wine tastings if you are in the mood for sampling some really great wine.
If you are looking to really impress your date, then you need to take them here. They will get to have the greatest French food and wine. They will also have the time of their lives being at one of the best 100 restaurants in the country! This place is a must if you want to secure the relationship, or want to continue the relationship.

Wolfie’s Carousel Bar
Wolfie's Carousel Bar is insane. It functions as a bar and a bistro. The reason why this place is insane is because the whole place is built around a functioning carousel.
You can be in the bistro section and eat your food from the menu while having the carousel moving around in the middle. The food here is phenomenal, and it is really fun to see the carousel slowly spin around as you eat your food
Or, if you're in the mood, you can go to the bar section, which is the carousel. You can sit down on a seat at the carousel and then it will spin around while you are drinking at the bar. The carousel makes one full rotation every 14 minutes so you shouldn’t have to worry about getting dizzy or spilling your drinks.
This place is great for going on a date because the idea of being at a restaurant with a carousel indoors seems out of this world and can strike up some very interesting conversations so you and your date will never be bored.
Plus, if you and your date are feeling up to it, you could go to the bar section afterwards and spin around the carousel with each other while enjoying your favorite drinks. Just make sure to drink responsibly.

The Smoking Goat Restaurant
The Smoking Goat Restaurant is amazing. Not only does it have steak, but it also has duck, snail, and swordfish. The food here looks beautiful. The wine selection is very wide.
This place looks like it can be a very good place to go on a date. The seats are chairs that are soft on every surface of the chair. This sets a very romantic atmosphere and makes the place seem fancy, but not too fancy, so it would be good for a date that doesn’t look like you are trying too hard.

The French Gourmet
The French Gourmet is very good. You can get all kinds of things here, but the reason to go here instead of anywhere else on this list is the bakery.
The bakery at this place is amazing. There are so many different bread products and they are all fantastic.
The restaurant at this place is really good too. You can get sandwiches or steaks, or you can select from many other things. The whole restaurant is built so you get to sit on an outdoor patio and enjoy your meal.
One reviewer said “High quality dining, great value, made from scratch, excellent service, lovely patio, incredible bakery, local favorite for decades.”
This place is the best place to bring your date for a lunch date because of its more casual setting. If your date goes really well and you both fall in love with this place, then, if you get married, you should definitely buy your wedding cake from the bakery at this place because their cakes taste really good and look amazing.

Le Parfait Paris
Le Parfait Paris is a very good French Restaurant for a first date. It’s not really fancy like most of the other ones, but it’s more laid back and aesthetically pleasing for a first date kind of place.
They sell stuff like coffee macarons, croissants, and crepes here. The macarons are amazing. They come in many different flavors and many different colors as well.
They also have french toast here. The french toast I got was one of the best pieces of french toast I have ever eaten in my entire life. If you and your date both love french toast, then this place could also work as a breakfast date where you can enjoy some of the best french toast in all of San Diego.
