By Top10BestDatingSites Staff

Trying to plan a date night in Seattle but feeling a bit overwhelmed by the options? It's no wonder. With Seattle, the problem isn't really finding a place to go - it's selecting one of the hundred available venues, and avoiding the crowds.

But there are many awesome places out there to take a date, as long as you're willing to go a little off the beaten track.

Italian with a modern twist, the Bizarro can turn a traditional dinner date into something exciting and unique. There's undoubtedly no shortage of traditional Italian restaurants throughout Seattle, but Bizzarro's whimsical and unusual designs are sure to delight. And one of the great benefits of online dating Seattle residents can take advantage of is the ability to check their date's food preferences on their profile. Just load up Zoosk and CTRL+F for "Italian"!

4. Emerald City Trapeze

Bonus tip: look for your date's favorite songs on their match.com profile. Yeah, it's cheating... but how else are you going to pass the test?
