Best Restaurant for Upscale Dining

We think it’s the popovers that clinched the No. 1 spot for Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse (4751 Owen Ayres Court, Eau Claire) this year. Or maybe it’s the lobster mac and cheese. At any rate, Johnny’s praiseworthy menu and romantic ambience is enough to pull even the most diehard sports fan away from ESPN and into the eyes of his (or her) lover. Mona Lisa’s (428 Water St., Eau Claire) claims the second spot this time around and remains one of our favorite places for date night pasta and decadent desserts. We will always love Houligans Steak & Seafood Pub (415 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire). Their steak medallions – we’re pretty sure – are even served in heaven. – Marie Anthony
