I find the hype of going out to eat on Valentine’s Day a little overrated. The restaurants try to maximize the number of people served which causes the dining rooms to be over crowded, the service to be extremely rushed, and the food a little mediocre.
My husband and I have tried going out to dinner around Valentine’s Day in the past, even tried our most favorite restaurants, and have always left feeling disappointed. Mostly it is just a waste of money on eating out for the less-than-spectacular experience. We finally decided it is a better use of our money to go out to eat another weekend and to stay in on Valentine’s Day.
