There is a very thin line between a perfect first date and a disastrous train wreck. Little things from the choice of perfume to the style of shoes you wear can decide how well the date goes. Similarly, choosing an appropriate restaurant with the right ambiance is essential and can be the deciding factor to whether your special day turns sour. It is also important to choose an appropriately priced restaurant: too expensive and you might come off a bit desperate, whereas too cheap and you?ll be wishing you were somewhere else halfway through the date. The trick is to find the right balance and we?re here to help you with that. Let?s take a look at some of the best restaurants in the city that should help you set the mood for hopefully many potential dates.
Olive Bistro ? DLF Cybercity

Few restaurants in Delhi stand out with such an inviting ambiance as does cosy little Olive Bistro located at DLF Cybercity. The outdoor garden with the sun-kissed potted plants can set a truly romantic tone for any first date. Those looking for a more private setting can opt for an indoor booth. The place has a distinct English café feel to it thanks to the vintage tables, chairs, and cute little bathtub which add some well-balanced quirk to an otherwise perfectly themed décor. Olive Bistro throws up a healthy mix of dishes from different European cuisines: the All Veg on A Thin Crust Pizza is light and filling, whereas meat lovers should try their signature Australian lamb shank, a delectable side of lamb seasoned with some unique home-cooked sauces.
Etc. - Cafe Pan Asian

Café Pan Asian?s signature Bistro, ?Etc.,? has little trouble drawing customers in thanks to their classy and romantic ambiance. The décor is very reminiscent of a classic English café, especially with the wicker-designed tables and seating and indoor plants that add another heavy touch of elegance. This is without a doubt a perfect place to choose for a first date where elegance and class are your main lookouts. The menu features the standard classics in terms of cocktails and liquors, with the stand out drink being their stylish Green Apple Martini. Don?t forget to try out some of their Crispy Fish in Chilli Plum Basil Sauce and Chicken Barbeque Wings, which would be best enjoyed with some Signature Whisky.

Ask any Delhiite where the best pizza in town is and chances are they will say Tonino?s. This quintessentially Italian joint does not ever compromise on the quality of food as is evidenced by their regular stream of customers. Its popularity is further enhanced thanks to its authentic Italian décor, which really helps the place stand out from competitors. Do not choose Tonino as venue if you plan your date on a weekend as it is almost impossible to find any place; of course, making a reservation helps. Of course, you would be foolish not to order one of their signature Wood-fried Oven Pizzas, which also come in a whole-wheat bread variety for those health conscious dates.
