Sometimes it’s hard to get away and enjoy a nice dinner out with your significant other. Driving to downtown Austin seems like such an ordeal, especially if you have to add coordinating a babysitter too. Well, the good news is you really don’t have to go far to enjoy a fun and relaxing night out. And you don’t have to pay the babysitter an extra hour and a half for your drive time!
Whether you are looking for an upscale option or you just want to get out for a good meal without wrestling a toddler into a highchair or cutting someone else’s food, there are some nice options right here in Cedar Park.
Here are some of our favorite Restaurants in Cedar Park, perfect for date night.
11066 Pecan Park Blvd, Cedar Park, TX 78613
Soto is more of an anniversary or birthday kind of place. They have affordable lunch specials, but dinner can be on the pricey side. However, if you are looking for upscale dining, a romantic atmosphere and artistically presented sushi dishes, then Soto is the place for you. You’d never expect such amazing food from the unassuming exterior, but you won’t be disappointed. Take a look at these other less expensive, but also very good Sushi Restaurants in Cedar Park.
