For every Valentine’s Day procrastinator out there, the time has come to bite the bullet and pick up the phone for a last-minute reservation. While many restaurants are already fully booked for the holiday, it’s worth trying your luck for last-minute cancellations due to the weather (or a breakup, perhaps?).

According to Uber traffic data, these restaurants were the most visited last year on Valentine’s Day for users of the ride-hailing app. Looking for something a bit less traveled? A local dating pro says these are the best first-date spots.
