One time or another, most of us have waited till the last minute to make Valentine's Day plans - and found ourselves shunted to a makeshift table in the corner, or eating at a fourth choice because everywhere else was booked. But it doesn't have to be that way! Here are nine can't-miss (and likely to fill up) tables to make it the romantic evening you really want.
Bistro Niko: A ticket to Paris could be a budget-buster, but a trip to Bistro Niko? The food's just as authentic and there's nowhere near as many pigeons. The French favorite (pictured above) offers a romantic four-course dinner, available both Friday, February 14, and Saturday, February 15 ($68 per person).
3344 Peachtree Rd.; 404-261-6456
Davio's: Inspired by the hearty cuisine of Northern Italy, this restaurant gives classic steakhouse dishes a refined interpretation. Though the regular menu will also be available, why not opt for the three-course prix fixe? ($75 per person.)
3500 Peachtree Rd.; 404-844-4810
King + Duke: Perhaps the flames of passion will be ignited by the open hearth at this Buckhead hot spot, where all the items on its four-course menu will be prepared over the fire ($70 per person, wine pairings and menu supplements available at extra cost).
3060 Peachtree Rd.; 404-477-3500
Kyma: Celebrate love island-style with Kyma's Greek-inspired cuisine, served as a four-course prix fixe. It's available both Friday, February 14, and Saturday, February 15 ($75 per person).
3085 Piedmont Rd.; 404-262-0702
Murphy's: This Highlands mainstay serves up a three-course menu with options including lobster ravioli, lamb skewers, red snapper with lobster risotto, soy-glazed short ribs, port-marinated monkfish, a flourless chocolate cake and more ($50 per person).
997 Virginia Ave. NE; 404-872-0904
ONE Midtown Kitchen: Every Valentine's Day, ONE puts together a special à la carte menu packed with romance, luxury and delicious modern American cuisine. Expect eight appetizers to choose from, an equal number of entrees and five desserts. Available February 14-15.

Seed Kitchen & Bar: This buzzed-about East Cobb newcomer will offer a four-course prix fixe showcasing chef Doug Turbush's elegant use of Southern ingredients ($69 per person, $25 extra for wine pairings).
1311 Johnson Ferry Rd., #504, Marietta; 678-214-6888
Sun Dial Restaurant: Sitting high atop the Westin Peachtree is one of Atlanta's venerable spots for lovebirds. (The claim is that, on average, there's one marriage proposal a day in the rotating dining room.) Chef Jason Stames will present a prix fixe three-course menu, with choices for each course ($95 per person).
210 Peachtree St.; 404-589-7506
