Valentine's Day Reservations: Austin Restaurants That Will Still Take Your Procrastinating Heart

For the last-minute planners

Eater isn't a fan of Valentine's Day, what with the special menus and love-filled crowds, and the general madness of Black Tuesday. For those who still want to brave the smushy hordes and celebrate love and all of that nonsense, thankfully, there are still some Austin restaurants with available reservations.

Eater scoured through OpenTable, Resy, and Tock for good dining bets for two still available starting at 4 p.m. Most of the available seatings are really early, or really late. Be sure to call ahead and find out if there are any special menus for the day. Book ‘em fast: these will disappear quickly.

If you’re looking for more Valentine’s Day options, Eater put together a comprehensive guide to the various prix fixe dinners and the such available throughout the city, as well as alternate suggestions, like burlesque shows and tarot card readings. Otherwise, seek out a more casual approach to the holiday or hole up in a dive bar.

This will be updated as Valentine’s Day approaches.
