4. Canyon Southwest Café

This Fort Lauderdale restaurant might be best known for its Southwest-inspired food and unparalleled prickly pear margaritas, but it's also the ultimate place for a passionate date. Tequila aside, the spicy menu is sure to titillate with items such as masala-dusted venison medallions, blue-corn-crusted oysters -- you know what they say about those little buggers -- and filet mignon with poblano pesto goat cheese. Grab a seat in one of the hidden booths, and let the orgasmic food get the passion flowing.

3. Bistro Mezzaluna

After a recent move from its original home in a shopping center on Fort Lauderdale's 17 Street Causeway, this long-running Italian restaurant has amped up its amore factor. With two dining rooms boasting elegantly set tables, an inviting patio with a cascading fountain, and a spacious piano bar, the splendorous, 14,000-square-foot space does love on a grand scale. But even with all the room, dining here is an intimate experience. Secluded booths are perfect for indulging in Italian-American classics such as pear salad with mixed greens, Maryland crabcakes, and surf 'n' turf while sipping on one of the 300 bottles of wine.
