It is no secret that we are spoiled with good food options living here in Portland. Regardless of what part of the city you are in, you will probably be able to find a restaurant or two that you could see yourself eating at. But what about restaurants for couples? Now I don’t mean specifically designed for couples! I mean for couples in different stages of their relationships. Every restaurant has a different setting and promotes a different type of date. Some have a more relaxed environment and are much more casual but others are fancier and have a little pricier bill attached to them. I took it upon myself to in a way rate some of my favorite restaurants for how “couple compatible” they are.
Couples that are just getting going, will likely prefer to go to the less ”spendy” and more casual and friendly options while couples that have been together for a little while often choose to venture out into the fancier and more formal restaurants around the city. Now obviously this won’t hold true for everyone in relationships and just because some locations are more expensive and more formal, doesn’t mean the couples in the earlier stages of their relationship should avoid those locations. (When you and your significant other are sitting down at the table, no one is going to know how long you have been together!) Plus it is always nice to throw in a fancier date every once in a while.
These restaurants are all amongst my favorites in the area and I regularly visit more than I probably should. No need to take my word for it though, this is simply what I have taken from these restaurants. I would encourage all of you guys to get out and try these places if you haven’t already! Some are very close to UP!
