PHOENIX — For those in Arizona looking for a new place to go out for date night, OpenTable has you covered.

Teaming up with the dating app Bumble, OpenTable came up with the best 100 spots for a date night, with six restaurants in the state making the list.

The options include three Valley steakhouses, two restaurants in Sedona and one near Tucson.

The steakhouses that made the list are Steak 44 in Phoenix, Dominick’s Steakhouse in Scottsdale Quarter and Arrowhead Grill in Glendale.

Steak 44 is an upscale steakhouse that offers customers a fine dining experience featuring USDA Prime Grade Beef, its website says.

They also offer the highest grade of domestic Wagyu and have fresh seafood, appetizers and side dishes available on their menu.

Dominick’s Steakhouse and Steak 44 are under the same ownership, so they have similar menus but Dominick’s pairs an elegant feel with a modern design.

And the last date night option in the Valley, Arrowhead Grill, boasting a 4.8 rating on OpenTable.

The two best date night options in Sedona, according to OpenTable, are Dahl and DiLuca Ristorante Italiano and Mariposa.

Dahl and DiLuca specializes in the best of Italian cuisine and wine.

If you’re not feeling Italian while in Sedona, Mariposa is a Latin and Spanish inspired restaurant that uses Arizona-grown organic products, according to OpenTable.

The final top date night spot in Arizona is down in Tucson, being Vivace Restaurant in the Foothills.

Another Italian offering, Vivace is a casual elegant dining option with an extended food menu and wine list.

Vivace also gives customers scenic views, perfect for any date night.
