February 06, 2014 | by Lane Nieset | Food & Drink News

It feels like New Year's was just yesterday, but Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching. Start planning your special night out with these recommendations for Miami's most romantic multi-course meals. 

Villa Azur
Villa Azur sets the scene for love year-round, but especially so on Valentine's Day. 

Villa Azur
At the South Beach translation of the French Riviera, a special cocktail has been created for Valentine's Day, The Greedy Kiss, a vodka-strawberry syrup libation with a touch of spice and cream. For the main attraction, begin with an assortment of appetizers (think truffled foie gras and caviar blinis) before digging into the main course, truffle salt-crusted branzino for two. 309 23rd St., Miami Beach, 305-763-8688

La Côte
The full moon falls on Valentine’s Day, and the Fontainebleau’s La Côte is giving you the best seat in the house—under the stars. The candlelit, toes-in-the-sand Valentine’s Day Moonlight Beach Dinner ($499 per couple) includes a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and four courses, including options like oysters on the half shell, crispy duck croquettes, seared grouper, and fennel-crusted chicken. Seating times are at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 877-326-7412

The Restaurant at Mondrian South Beach
Toast your Valentine in a candle-lit cabana on the bay at The Restaurant at Mondrian. Dinner ($500) includes a bottle of Champagne and dishes like an arugula and date salad, calamari à la plancha, brick chicken, grouper puttanesca, and coconut crème brûlée with banana cookies. 1100 West Ave., South Beach, 305-514-1940

Cozy up in one of Hakkasan’s intimate alcoves and share a family-style feast for two with Chinese favorites. Dishes on the prix-fixe menu ($350 per couple) include a dim sum sampler, traditional Peking duck, stir-fried spicy tiger prawns, and grilled honey Chilean sea bass. Dinner ends in true indulgence with a dark chocolate ganache with rose and red fruits. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 877-326-7412

BLT Steak
The Betsy’s BLT steak is adding a poetic touch to a Valentine’s Day dinner with a three-course prix-fixe ($70), complete with a book of love poems to take home. Choose from plates off the Valentine’s Day Blackboard, such as poached halibut, lobster mac and cheese, and a sweet chocolate tart with honey, vanilla, marshmallow, and salted vanilla ice cream or citrus beignets with Grand Marnier ice cream. 1440 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach, 305-531-6100
