Whether it’s your first date together or you are escaping for a night out on the town with your significant other sans kids, you’ll want to plan a memorable evening. Here’s a look at five of the best summer date night spots in Boston where you can canoodle by candlelight.

1 Table #77 at Tresca

If you have been to the North End, but never dined at Table #77, you haven't experienced the true flavor of the North End. This is one of Boston's most coveted table and one of a kind for good reason. It is the only table of its kind located on a balcony built for two overlooking Hanover Street. The ultra romantic dining destination offers the best views of the North End from the comfort of your own private balcony. Try an order of nachos Bolognese or share an order of farm raised mussels with a glass of Italian wine and you may never want to leave. Seatings at this special table are nightly at 5, 7 and 9 p.m.

2 Frenchie

Who doesn't love to linger over a nice bottle of French vino in a cozy neighborhood wine bar? Whether you opt for a Parisian style patio seat to enjoy al fresco dining or prefer to enjoy dinner inside with your significant other in the comfortable dining room at the latest newcomer to the South End, it's all about enjoying some fine wine here. Shared plates are at the forefront of this menu with small dishes like salt cod croquettes, foie gras with brioche and escargot toast. We recommend pairing it all up with a glass of champagne, frosty frosé or a spicy cabernet from France's Loire Valley.

3 North Square Oyster

North Square Oyster
If you are looking to provide the perfect spark to your night of romance, head to North Square Oyster for a dozen briny aphrodisiacs to set the mood. Whether you prefer earthy, crisp, meaty, savory or sweet bivalves, they have got you covered paired up with a side of chardonnay mignonette or rhubarb red wine mignonette. We like the "composed" version that comes complete with hibiscus ponzu, lemon verbena and cherry cured quail yolk. Keep the raw bar sampling going with a half lobster, some king crab and jumbo shrimp cocktail with spiced up cocktail sauce with fresh horseradish.

4 Table #25 at Strega Waterfront

Strega Waterfront
We all love dining with a view, but when you snag the hautest table in the restaurant in the hautest section of town, well, it doesn't really get much better than that. Case in point - Table #25 at Strega Waterfront, the most stylish table in the house set under an arch that, when you look at it in the right angle, resembles the shape of an engagement ring (if you are feeling like popping the question). The Seaport District's Italian favorite churns out dishes designed for romance like shrimp and pineapple; scallops Grand Marnier and cured beef tenderloin carpaccio served up in an unbeatable setting.
271 Dartmouth Street Boston, MA 02116

5 Table #40 at Parker's Restaurant

Omni Parker House
Parker's exudes historic old world charm the moment you set foot inside Parker's tucked inside the Omni Parker House. Located just steps from Downtown Crossing, this haute spot holds a special place in every Bostonian's heart as the place where John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie (at Table #40 to be exact). Reserve the romantic table in advance as its popularity still remains some 64 years later. Be sure to finish off your dinner here with a taste of Boston cream pie, which was invented here and remains our state's official dessert.
