Start Off with a Pre-Fixe Dinner at Woodbines

Our soft, candlelit décor provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. Call today at 718.361.8488 to make your Valentine’s Day reservation and take advantage of our optional three-course pre-fixe menu for just $30. Choose between Skirt Steak, Lemon Rosemary Chicken, or Truffled Mushroom Risotto for your main dish and a soup or salad as an appetizer. Dessert will be our luscious Chocolate Lava Cake served with whipped cream and fresh berries and your meal even comes complete with a glass of wine or draft beer. Of course, our regular menu with all your favorites is still available.

And, we’ve got a great selection of signature cocktails (Salted Caramel Martini, anyone?) if you’re looking for a little after-dinner treat.


Want to plan something special for your loved one, like having their favorite flowers waiting for them? Give us a call or shoot us an e-mail at info@woodbineslic.com and we’ll help you pull it off!

What To Do Beforehand

Long Island City has no shortage of great spots to check out. Stop by Gantry Plaza State Park for truly unbeatable views of the city and the famous Pepsi Cola sign (so gramable). For the art lover, head to MoMa PS1 for some world-class modern art right here in Queens. Or, swing by the Chocolate Factory Theatre, an artist-led space where you can see many forms of performance and art.

Beer enthusiasts can craft the perfect date by touring our local LIC breweries. Visit Big Alice, Rockaway Brewing, and LIC Beer Project. Just make sure to check their hours online. Woodbines always has something local to offer, right now we’ve got Rockaway’s delicious ESB in cans!

For those looking for an adventurous date, book a climbing session at one of Long Island City’s premier facilities: The Cliffs and Brooklyn Boulders. Or, if playing laser tag while being chased by zombies is more your thing, check out Indoor Extreme Sports.

Where to Stay

Luckily, there’ll be no long journey home after your date. LIC has many hotels, both trendy and romantic. Check out the Z Hotel, a gorgeous boutique where each room has a view of the skyline. Or, Ravel Hotel offers luxurious, spa-like comfort in sepia toned rooms and the Wyndham Garden can’t be beat for modern relaxation.
