2. Red Fish Grill
We live in one of the most gorgeous areas of the world, yet there are so few romantic spots directly on the beach. Red Fish Grill is so close to the water you might feel compelled to roll up your pants legs to avoid the tide. Housed in a keystone structure, part of the Matheson Hammock beach pavilion built in the 1940s, the restaurant is perfect for watching the moon's reflection play on the waters of Biscayne Bay as you dine on pan-seared red snapper ($32) and Caribbean jerk mahi-mahi ($26).

1. Casa Tua
There are no signs outside Casa Tua, and if you haven't been there before, you might think you're about to trespass in someone's fabulous Mediterranean-style home. You're half right. This is a home -- your home for the evening (which is what Casa Tua literally translates to). The romance, however, lies in the courtyard, lit by lanterns everywhere -- in the trees, on the floor, on your table. They cast a soft glow on the evening much the same way a romance film makes everything all soft and fuzzy. The cuisine is reminiscent of a restaurant on the Amalfi Coast. Plates are small, but you have other things on your mind after dinner than lapsing into a food coma, don't you?

I have eaten at most of them but my all time favorite is Barton G. I have been there for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed.

 Ed:  I agree the Chart House has beautiful views, but I like to veer from chain restaurants. As for The Rusty Pelican and The Forge -  romance is a subjective thing and it's a top ten list, so we eventually have to choose our ten best.
