Are you planning a first date with a cute girl or a hot hunk from college? Are you just trying to go out with your significant other to celebrate something special? Whatever the occasion, one essential element is the venue. You need to consider the options before picking a restaurant as the venue.
It is easy to find a list of the nearby date restaurant online. Do not forget to narrow your search by the cuisine you prefer. Next, you need to check the restaurant review of each of this. This would give you a good idea about how other diners, and perhaps critics, think about the place.
Essentials to consider when choosing a restaurant for a date are as follows
Is it easy to reach? If you are flying your date on a helicopter to the best restaurant, you sure do not need to worry about this. However, not all plans are so elaborate. If it is a first date, make sure the place is easy to reach, and your date is not lost on his/her way!
Is it the right category? If, after all this planning, you end up at a family restaurant, it would sure be a mess! You sure do not want to spend your special time sitting surrounded with messy, noisy children.
Is the ambience inviting? Always remember, first impressions are very important. If your date sees a nice restaurant with an impressive decor (traditional, modern, Oriental, or any other would do), he/she is sure to be impressed.
Is the lighting adequate? The restaurant needs just the right amount of lighting – too much and it is too much in your face and too little and it is too difficult to even see your date properly.
Is the music non-intrusive? Light music filling the background is a good thing to set the romantic atmosphere. However, if it is too loud, you run the risk of ruining your date by continuously asking him/her to repeat.
Is the service prompt? Waiting for ages for your food to arrive or servers who come over and chat – both are going to turn your date into a disaster! Good, prompt service is what you need – neither neglect nor overfriendliness would do.
Is the food good? It is better to check the menu, the specials, and the restaurant reviews, beforehand. It is even better if you could go there and have a dinner before the particular day if you consider this date extra special.
Most important of all – is the experience worth the expense? Consider all the aforementioned points and ask yourself – does it justify the amount you are spending on the dinner. If you think it does, you have an almost perfect venue for the date. When you have this in place, your date has a high chance of success.
Planning a special date is always an interesting task – make sure your choose a restaurant the other would like; however, it is also necessary to choose a place that you like too – after all, it is a special time for both.
