Certain occasions call for making dinner plans rather than expecting your partner to just make dinner as usual. The big one is Valentine's Day. So, unless you have specific plans to cook a special dinner together, it's probably a good idea to call up one of the following places and book your reservation now.
Keep in mind that Valentine's Day falls on a Monday and many couples will celebrate with a special dinner over the weekend.

It's $79.99 per couple, and reservations are suggested. Other specials are also available. At the Richland Atria's, tavern manager Jeff Heckman said they will be featuring several specialty drinks as well, including a strawberry passion martini.
