A Valentine’s Day Meal for Two

If you reserved our all-in-one Valentine’s Day Meal, we have a step-by-step guide for preparing the meal, so you can cook with confidence.

Pick up the perfect complement to your Valentine's Day Meal with these pairing recommendations —

Chateaubriand Cut Filet Mignon Wine Pairing: Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon This Sonoma County favorite has a deep, ruby-violet color and inviting aromas of blackberry, raspberry and currant. On the palate, lush fruit is framed by rich tannins and hints of sweet oak, cocoa and spice—characteristics that will pair beautifully with our flavorful Filet Mignon. The finish is long and compelling, making this a wine you won’t soon forget!

North Atlantic Lobster Tail Wine Pairing: Merryvale Carneros Chardonnay Merryvale Vineyards is a family-owned Napa Valley winery dedicated to quality, sustainable winemaking. Their vibrant, golden Chardonnay is fresh and delicate, so it’s the perfect complement to our North Atlantic Lobster Tails . Each sip is rich with aromas of sweet pear, pineapple, golden delicious apple, vanilla bean and toffee. Its fruit-forward nature is well-balanced and leads to a lengthy, sophisticated finish.

Special Appetizers & Entrées


A special day calls for an extra-special meal! Start the evening with exquisite appetizers, like Decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Take & Bake Brie from our deli. This special Brie features crunchy hazelnuts and rich hazelnut spread in a delicate puff pastry.

Searching for the perfect entrée? Impress the meat-lover in your life with an eye-catching favorite that tastes as good as it looks. Our Premium Choice Sweetheart Ribeye is striking on the plate, and the palate. Pair it with a deep, dark red wine, like a Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec or Merlot—perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Our expert butchers hand-cut and butterfly the ribeye into the shape of a heart. Each steak is aged for a minimum of 14 days for maximum tenderness and maintains its unique shape when cooked. It’s also exceptionally tender, juicy and flavorful—only the top 10% of beef in the country qualifies as Premium Choice based on marbling. The Sweetheart Ribeye will be available from Friday, February 9 through Wednesday, February 14.

Stop and Smell the Roses

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a vibrant, fresh bouquet of roses! Ours are long-lasting and available in a variety of colors, lengths and arrangements.

Roses with baby's breath

We have lush arrangements that include delicate baby’s-breath and bright greenery. All of our roses are Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means they’ve been sustainably grown and harvested—so they’re a gorgeous gift you can feel good about!

If you really want to impress your valentine with a classic romantic gesture, we recommend one dozen of our long-stemmed red roses. These bold beauties are sure to make an impression!

We also offer rose bouquets in decorative vases. Choose one of our pre-made red bouquets or ask our florists to create a custom arrangement.

Rose selections vary by store.
