You can't put a price on love, but romantic restaurants can be pretty steep. If you'd like to take that special someone out to a romantic or sexy place without breaking the bank, look no further. We heartily recommend the following ten restaurants where you can sit at the bar or in the lounge and share a cocktail and a kiss in just the right atmosphere without having to buy complete meals. They all provide a romantic vibe as well as adult beverages. Some feature finger food you can feed each other, others romantic views, while some even are inside hotels where romance can be taken to a whole new level. Presented in alphabetical order are our top ten places to kiss in the U.S.
