Where Can You Still Get a Valentine’s Day Table?

>> See our full Valentine's Day Guide

>> See our Most Romantic Restaurants

Thinking about going out to dinner this Valentine’s Day? Yes, you can still get reservations at of-the-moment restaurants such as Masa 14 or Ris—if you want to eat at 4:30. But a scan of OpenTable shows there are plenty of prime-time alternatives—a 6 PM table at Rasika; 7:30 at Corduroy—which will hide any traces of planning procrastination. We’ll keep the list updated frequently.

If you see a reservation you like, lock it down fast. And if you don’t see a restaurant you had in mind, always give it a call. Some places keep a chunk of reservations off OpenTable, or there could be a cancellation, especially if it’s still a snowy mess.
