Do you normally eat out on Valentine’s Day? This year, many couples will be celebrating at home and we’re here to help make it a romantic and delicious dinner from the first bite to the last.

Enjoy Valentine’s Day at home this year with a gourmet, delicious meal – without spending hours in the kitchen or hiring a chef. Here are our tips for the perfect romantic meal to make it a Valentine’s Day meal to remember.

How to Have a Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner at Home

Set the Mood

There’s something relaxing about being in the comfort of your home. A simple tablecloth, candles, and mood music can transform your everyday dining room table into a romantic dinner for two. Enjoy the distraction-free dining experience with your loved one.

Start with Great Food

Enjoying a gourmet meal starts with high-quality ingredients. Our Valentine’s Day dinners are easy to cook and taste great. In just under 30 minutes, you can cook a delicious steak dinner that sets the mood for romance. Add your favorite steakhouse side dish, a raspberry swirl cheesecake (shaped like a heart), and wine for a gourmet meal that is sure to please.

Cook Together

Sharing the kitchen with your significant other is a great bonding experience and a fun way to spend quality time together. Bonus, you get to eat a delicious meal you made as a team. And, with Omaha Steaks, we are here to help you cook the perfect meal with easy-to-follow steak cooking directions. You can have a gourmet dinner ready in just 30 minutes. Check out our steak doneness guide and make sure to use the Omaha Steaks app timer for a perfectly cooked steak every time.

For a gourmet surf-and-turf meal ready in under an hour, try Chef David Rose’s Southern Surf & Turf with blacked filet mignon with chipotle butter, and a lobster, bacon and corn sauté. It’s a romantic meal with decadent, rich flavors in every bite.

Select the Perfect Wine

Enjoy your favorite wine with dinner (and while cooking together) without having to worry about a designated driver or Uber. Share a bottle of our red or white wine and relax in the comfort of your own home. Bonus – the money you save on an Uber can buy a second bottle of wine!

Leave the Dishes

I know that cleaning dishes is one reason people enjoy eating out. I mean, who actually enjoys doing dishes? When you cook at home for your Valentine’s Day dinner, give yourself permission to leave the dishes in the sink and enjoy each other’s company for the rest of the night. I promise they will be there tomorrow.

This Valentine’s Day give yourself the gift of time with your loved one and stay in for your date night. Cook a romantic, gourmet meal together, set the mood, and enjoy each other’s company with no distractions. Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. Order your complete Valentine’s Day meal for two now.
