Eat at the Miami Restaurants Ranked Among Yelp's Most Romantic. Just in time for Valentine's Day, Yelp released its annual list of the nation's most romantic restaurants, and two Miami eateries made the cut: Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar in West Kendall and Pane & Vino in South Beach. To compile the list, Yelp identified restaurants on its platform with the greatest number of reviews mentioning the words “romantic,” “Valentine’s Day,” and “date night.” Those spots were ranked using various factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning the relevant keywords. If you're looking to dine at either spot on Valentine's Day, make sure to call ahead and make a reservation.
