Best Dinner Date Restaurants in Irving

Our experience at the Irving Symphony started off with dinner at one of the best restaurants in Irving Texas.

The Ranch in Las Colinas is a perfect spot for country-style old fashions and a hearty dinner. It’s just a few minutes away from the Irving Arts Center where the symphony is hosted.

The Ranch is one of those dimly lit, themed dinner restaurants that always provides the environment for a romantic evening. One thing that Irving lacks is a true upscale dining experience, but the Ranch is one of those spots that can feel relaxed and upscale at the same time.

Review of the Irving Symphony

Date Night Idea: The Irving Symphony

When we arrived, at the wrong side of the building of course, we had to walk through art displays to get to the event side. It was such a special experience. If you love art, then you’ll love the environment that the Irving Arts Center provides. There is always multiple events happening at the same time, so you’ll likely happen upon another exhibition.

Our seats were fantastic, close to the stage, stage left. We could see almost every person in the orchestra which made the experience of feeling the music so much better. Throughout the symphony we could watch different instruments and appreciate each one independently.

There were a couple of special guest musicians and singers as well that made the whole of it feel like a good mix of sounds and events. All in all, it was a beautiful musical performance. The quality and the sophistication of the orchestra was as amazing as any major city symphony. But, what we loved most is the community feeling. It’s a much smaller venue, a familiar faced crowd, and a wonderful representation of local talent that really is amazing to think about.

What to Wear to the Irving Symphony

When you think about going out for date night you wonder what in the world should you wear? Clearly, I had this moment. But, what I love about the Irving Symphony is that it’s a perfect hometown feeling combined with elegant evening!

Part of the whole experience is getting all dolled up for date night, so you don’t need to feel like you’re ever too dressed up. In fact, we saw people wearing everything from nice slacks and a button up to an evening dress. So, definitely dress to impress to the Irving Symphony!
