Here are our favorites for February 14th. The Little Door This Third Street eatery dishes up a French-Mediterranean menu with excellent proteins, including grilled prime rib, filet mignon, pan-seared venison and the very popular mustard and pinenut-encrusted rack of lamb. Couples can dine by candlelight in on of four beautifully decorated dining areas: Winter Garden, Piano Room, Blue Room and the patio. This is also a favorite romantic restaurant for Hollywood A-listers, including Halle Berry, Kate Beckinsale, David Arquette and Christina Aguilera. Il Cielo Pairs can enjoy delectable pasta, wine and a dreamy ambiance in the Beverly Hills spot's gorgeously lit vintage courtyard. In addition to the pasta menu, Il Cielo has romantic packages, which include rose petals, a heart-shaped dessert, champagne and special tasting menus for two.

The buzz-worthy menu includes pizza, pastas, sandwiches, and even a hamburger, along with a selection of small plates. Parking is available in a lot next to the restaurant for $5. Bottega Louie does not take reservations, so expect a wait during peak hours—perfect for a pre-dinner conversation. Pace Tucked away in the Hollywood Hills off Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Pace has an earthy ambiance and down-to-earth Italian menu that includes pizzas and pastas and supports local farms. All produce is organic and meat served is nitrate and hormone free. Reservations are recommended. Yamashiro Perched on a hill with one of the best views of Hollywood, couples can take in the view during a stroll in the restaurant's soothing Japanese garden at sunset before indulging a special Valentine's Day menu, priced at $99 plus gratuity. The Valentine's menu has romantic Asian-fushion fare such as two oysters on the half shell served with grapefruit and wasabi granite, Kurobuta pork carnitas, a comprehensive selection of sushi and red velvet corazon for dessert.
