Make Valentine's Day
special with dinner at Montalvo by Le Papillon

Dinner with Le Papillon

This Valentine's Day, enjoy a romantic dinner in Montalvo's historic Villa! Executive Chef Scott Cooper of Le Papillon will present a special menu for the occasion on both Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15.

The five-course prix fixe menu ($135 per person) includes hors d'oeuvres, Dungeness crab souffle, duck soup with wild rice & vegetables, beef tenderloin topped with butter-poached lobster, and a passionfruit-white chocolate semifreddo for dessert. Vegetarian options are available by request. 
See the link above for the full detailed menu.

The evening isn't just for couples, either: it's also great for groups of friends, families, even double-dates!

To reserve your table at this luxurious dinner, call Le Papillon at 408-296-3730. Reservations must be made in advance; make yours early, because these dinners sell out every year!
