It looks like the honeymoon phase is far from over for Mr. and Mrs. Clooney!

The actor, 53, and his barrister wife Amal spent their first Valentine’s Day as newlyweds at one of Clooney’s favorite dinner spots Saturday night, Asanebo in Studio City, California.

The couple looked happy and affectionate as they were spotted leaving the sushi restaurant, smiling and holding hands. Amal – whose style choices have already grabbed headlines – donned a tan, fringed cape, booties and an oversized blue clutch. George, who kept it casual in jeans and a short-sleeved grey button, had his arm around his wife’s waist at one point.

George and Amal’s first several months of marriage have been full of celebration. They toasted Amal’s 37th birthday Feb. 1 with a casual dinner with close friends at their home and made their first red carpet appearance at the 2015 Golden Globes on Jan. 11.

The couple also topped their newlywed glow with some sunshine on a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last week, where they were joined by Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, a source tells PEOPLE. They relaxed at the El Dorado Golf & Beach Club and “enjoyed a few days in the sun with friends,” the source says.

Marriage, Clooney told PEOPLE in September after they tied the knot in Venice, Italy, “feels pretty damn great.”

On top of celebrating birthdays and holidays and gracing red carpets, the couple has kept as busy ever.

Clooney, 53, stars in the new Disney/Pixar movie Tomorrowland – which is scheduled for a May release – while Amal has a jam-packed agenda that includes representing Armenia in a trial before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), and more recently, joining the legal team of The Hooded Men, a group of 10 men who were allegedly tortured by the British Army in Northern Ireland in 1971.
