A belated Valentine's day celebration, outside of the city

Laura D. | Feb 15, 2012 10:11 AM

Since Valentine's Day was on a Tuesday, and since we didn't wish to celebrate before the actual day, we're trying to find a table for 2 for this coming Saturday, February 18 to celebrate a belated Valentine's Day. We live in Ardmore and are interested in avoiding the city, as I deal with it every day for work. We're looking for somewhere that we can realistically get a reservation for with this little notice, even if it is a late reservation. I don't eat meat, but I think that every restaurant I'm considering should be able to accommodate my vegetarian diet. A decent by-the-glass selection would also be nice, as I also don't drink (I know, I know...I'm absolutely no fun), though almost every restaurant (unless a BYOB) has at least a few reasonably priced glasses. Most importantly, a fairly quiet atmosphere is preferred and very good food is key. I think we're veering towards either Italian or Continental/New American cuisine, as opposed to something with a stronger ethnic flair.

Here are some restaurants I'm considering. I'd love to hear of others that I've neglected to research!

Majolica (Phoenixville). Note, I've probably been here at least 5 times but I haven't been here for 5+ years. I know that the menu and concept of the restaurant has changed considerably in that time so I'm interested in knowing what people think.

Stone Rose (Conshohocken). I've never been here but it looks like a nice menu

Stella Blu (Conshohocken). Again, I've never been here but think it looks like a nice menu and nice atmosphere

La Collina (Bala Cynwyd). Never been, but have read good reviews online about the atmosphere. The reviews of the food are spotty

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
