The Oaks Grille, located at TPC Valencia, is also offering a romantic dining option. In addition to a four-course dinner with champagne, diners will be offered picturesque views of the club’s immaculate course.

For a romantic night out with your special someone, the Vines Restaurant & Bar, located in the Hyatt Regency Valencia, is the perfect nightlife destination. Order a craft beer or martini and toast one another while lounging by the restaurant’s patio fireplace. In addition to their delicious Valentine menu, The Vines has small plates, like seared scallops and calamari, to truly compliment the evening.

If you can’t decide between dinner and adventure, Le Chene French Cuisine is offering the best of both worlds. In addition to a special Valentine’s Day menu, the restaurant also has a Valentine’s Day Murder Mystery Dinner Theater slated. The evening begins with a mingling reception at 7 p.m. in which diners meet “the suspects” and start gathering clues. As guests are dining on sumptuous entrees, they are also digging into a mystery. As an added incentive for keeping careful notes, prizes will be given to the guest with the best solution to the mystery. Reservations are required. The dinner special without the show is served between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Finally, what better way to celebrate romance and love than with the immortal words of The Bard, William Shakespeare? On Feb. 11, join members of the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival for “Shakespeare & Love,” an unforgettable night of food, wine, music and scenes about love from classic plays through the ages. This progressive dinner moves the audience from room to room for intimate theatrical scenes of love and is the perfect event for a unique night out.
