Romantic dinner for DW late October.

Have read up on other questions, but need to know of a romantic restaurant for a DW birthday that ends in a zero. Late October with a view some type of view.

Would that be a good time to be patio dining??

I am sure she would love a comp. desert or something also.

Thanks for the advice in advance.

Late October is perfect, and if it gets too cold, most restaurants have outdoor heaters.

My suggestions would be:

Sassi- North Scottsdale, with great views of the valley and Pinnacle Peak, from the patio. Also, its a nice little drive up to the Troon Area. Should be a very nice sunset if you time it right.

La Petite Maison- Old Town Scottsdale, is a small, charming French Restaurant. The pation is very much a garden of greens and flowers and makes for a romantic setting. Doesn't have the view you asked for, but certainly should be on the list.

Quiessence at The Farm at South Mountain- Located on a working farm, this little restaurant has a great wine list and is situated among the trees. Has a romantic feel and is certainly unique.

Elements at Sanctuary Resort has both great food and views. It's Beau MacMillan's place, and is Asian inspired American food.

We just celebrated a birthday at El Chorro. Very nice patio, great service, enjoyed the food. Not necessarily a cozy romantic place but a good time was had by all.

El Chorro is an impressive place, though would not say food is top tier.

Would also looking into J&G Steakhouse on 6th floor of Phoenician. Has a view and some outdoor seating weather permitting.

You could also try Lon's at the Hermosa, and ask for a table on their patio. Beautiful area and very romantic; we've had many anniversary dinners there. The view will be of the surrounding patio area with trees, lights, fountain, flowers, etc., and mountains in the distance - not city lights. But it's a still quite pretty, and is an excellent place for dinner. If you tell them it's her birthday and ask them to do something special, they will.

Another option would be Talavera at the Four Seasons in North Scottsdale - again, sit on the patio, ask for a table with a good view, and tell them it's her birthday. You'll see some city lights, with Pinnacle Peak nearby and beautiful desert landscaping. Pricey, but excellent, and worth it!

Excellent suggestions Humm, and I absolutely agree on both Lon's and Talavera. Wish I had remembered them. The food at Lon's is top notch and you can't beat the setting of Talavera.
