The next time you’re planning a special night out, make sure to put one of the best date night restaurants in Disney Springs on your must-visit list.

Whether you’re a Central Florida local or headed to Walt Disney World for a couples’ vacation (or even a honeymoon!), there are plenty of places across the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs that make for a magical date night. In fact, we think Disney Springs is the perfect place to spend an evening. Home to shopping, dining and entertainment, it’s a great destination to spend some time with a significant other or date.

If you’re looking for date night restaurants to get your romantic evening started with some delicious food, look no further. We’re sharing our picks for the best date night restaurants in Disney Springs that offer romance and bites for every palate for your next evening out. 

Wine Bar George – A Restaurant & Bar 

Location: The Landing 

Wine Bar George – A Restaurant & Bar, was created by Master Sommelier George Miliotes with one thing in mind: Wine. But, that’s not all that’s offered at this Disney Springs date night restaurant. From small plates to sharing options, the atmosphere and the quality of food make it the perfect place to spend the evening and just relax with your significant other.

We recommend ordering a few different small plates and asking your server to pair some wines with your dishes to really savor the experience. It’s a unique date night option in the heart of Disney Springs, and there’s plenty more nearby to do, see, and experience if you want to extend your evening afterwards.

If you’re looking for an upscale meal with picturesque waterfront views for your date night at Disney Springs, The Boathouse is a great option. Located right on the water, The Boathouse is known for its extensive seafood-focused menu. With options like Cedar Planked Salmon and Gulf of Mexico Red Grouper, this restaurant experience is an elevated one that will be sure to impress. But, if you or your date aren’t seafood lovers, fear not. There are other options to enjoy, like The Boathouse’s famous Filet Mignon Sliders that are worth a try.

Plus, there are other date-friendly perks here, like live music nightly. However, the romance doesn’t have to end there. Want to make your date night really special? Consider a 20-minute tour of Lake Buena Vista in an Amphicar. The experience is breathtaking and a fun way to end your date night!

Enzo’s Hideaway 

Location: The Landing

While some people like to suggest Maria & Enzo’s for date nights at Disney Springs (which is a great Italian option!), why not try Enzo’s Hideaway? Tucked away in a small corner, this hideaway gives all the speakeasy vibes, creating an intimate and cozy environment, perfect for date night. Despite this smaller location compared to the full-size table service restaurant, your menu options aren’t limited here. You can try small bites like calamari and prosciutto or dine on a full meal like eggplant parmigiana or a ribeye steak. Enzo’s Hideaway’s location and theme make this the perfect spot for a romantic, cozy evening over some delicious food. 

Summer House on the Lake

Location: West Side

Summer House on the Lake is the newest restaurant to open in Disney Springs, and we think it’s easily one of the best options for a date night thanks to the romantic atmosphere and views overlooking the lake. While this is a family-friendly restaurant, the California vibes in the decor make it a great higher-end option for your next date. Whether you’re in the mood for a salad, a sandwich, pasta, or some comfort food, Summer House on the Lake is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the view with your loved one.

Oh, and don’t forget to share a giant cookie! Summer House is known for these, and it’s a great way to end your dinner. Nothing screams romance like a cookie, right?

If you’re looking for a cool vibe with delicious food and drinks, then one of the best date night restaurants is STK Steakhouse in Disney Springs. The restaurant offers upscale and modern decor with many places to enjoy and dine on your meal. Speaking of meals, STK is known for its steaks and fish options.

Additionally, if you’re celebrating something important on your date, STK Steakhouse is a great location for a special night out like a birthday or anniversary, given the expensive price point. But, if you’re looking for a date night spot that’s simply lively and exciting, this is the place to be. 

Paddlefish 

Location: The Landing

On a clear night, the rooftop at Paddlefish makes for the perfect romantic evening. Located on the old Fulton’s steamboat, Paddlefish offers delicious fish and steak options. While the whole restaurant offers waterfront views and delicious food, the rooftop seating that’s available on Friday and Saturday evenings also pairs diners’ meals with live entertainment, making for one incredible date night spot that’s sure to stun. Boasting items like Salmon, Mahi, Filet Mignon and Pork Chops, the menu is also elevated and classic for couples.
