Nob Hill

Jacqueline Add to a List
The charming oyster bar and restaurant will offer a Valentine's Day tasting menu full of fresh seafood and bright, tangy flavors, including Hama Hama oysters, coho salmon tartare, diver scallop ceviche, endive salad, black truffle pierogies, fried hen of the woods mushrooms, Oregon albacore tuna belly, and red wine cherry swirl cheesecake. An optional $50 wine pairing is also available.

Alberta Arts District

Ox Add to a List
Woo your sweetheart over the Argentinian-inspired restaurant's creatively carnivorous prix-fixe menu, which contains options like coal-roasted pork loin carpaccio, clam chowder, chateaubriand au poivre, a lamb duo (grilled lamb loin chops and cocoa-braised pork shoulder), pineapple sorbet, and très leches tiramisu.

Pix Patisserie Add to a List
Pix Patisserie may be closed, but its 24-hour contactless Pix-O-Matic vending machine still has you covered for Valentine's Day with chocolate boxes, champagne, heart-shaped macarons, strawberry mousse, and even a single pair of real diamond stud earrings with 14K gold (hidden in one of the boxes of chocolates for one very lucky recipient on Valentine's Day). Plus, the old-school animatronic fortune-telling machine Zoltar (on loan from Magic Box Vending) will offer up special "naughty" Valentine's Day readings for $1 a pop. While you're there, don't forget to strike a pose and create your own GIF inside the free photo booth.

Providore Fine Foods Add to a List
If you prefer to stay in, the gourmet specialty store's takeout ravioli dinner might be just the ticket. The package comes complete with "snacking cheese," handmade Dungeness crab ravioli, cream sauce, a Pastaworks cheese blend, a slab of foccacia, Arrosto salad, an artisan chocolate bar, two chocolate moelleux cakes, and fresh flowers from Hilary Horvath.
