We never go out on Valentines. It's one of the two busiest days in the restaurant world, and bucking the mobs can destroy the mood of the day.

So it will be a quite dinner at home.

We rarely have dessert, but I probably will make heart-shaped chocolate Pavlovas, topped with whipped cream and fresh berries. It's become something of a tradition for me to serve that to m'lady.

not sure yet. we may go back to the restaurant we went to today if their specials are different for v-day, or we may go out for korean bbq, or possibly a steakhouse.

OR, i offered to make a lobster boil at home, with clams, mussels, corn, potatoes, and of course lobsters.

My husbands birthday was this weekend and we celebrated that at a nice restaurant. Valentine's Day has never been a really big deal for us, so we'll stay at home.

Dinner at home for us. I don't care for restaurants on holidays. Limited menu, too many crowds. Did it twice - never again.

It's a work night and also as many have already said, over crowded restaurants don't really make for the best atmosphere and I'd prefer to take out my beloved wife when she does not expect it and when it's peaceful and quiet:) Ok, enough of that soppyness hehe!

I'll be cooking a nice meal at home and my wife will make the desert:)

I'm making an onion tart in a heart shaped pan, Sharon's Tomato and Pancetta soup with the mascarpone cream in a heart shape on top. Shrek should enjoy this for Valentine's.
