February 14 right is around the corner, which means it’s time to start solidifying those Valentine’s Day plans for you and your significant other. With so many unique ways to spend Valentine’s Day in Vegas, you may find yourself overwhelmed with options. After all, can anything really top a sunset helicopter wedding in the Grand Canyon or a night in a $5,000 luxury hotel suite?
Then again, sometimes, the best Valentine’s Day gift is just a great meal with the person you love the most. Get back to basics this year with a classy dinner date at one of the many five-star restaurants on and off the Strip. Luckily for you, we’ve taken all the guesswork out of planning the perfect date by compiling this list of the 10 most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas.
Few locations are as romantic as Paris, the City of Love. If you can’t make it all the way to Paris this Valentine’s Day, don’t fret—Mon Ami Gabi has created a little Paris of their own. This French-inspired bistro inside the aptly-named Paris Hotel is known as one of the most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas for its quaint ambiance mixed with stunning views of Las Vegas Boulevard.
Dine on elegant charcuterie and cheese platters, trout almondine, prime steak frites, and choose from over 100 premium wine pairings. With large open windows and patio seating, you’ll have a front row view of the Bellagio Fountains and the shimmering Las Vegas Strip. Ooh la la!
Situated over 800 feet above the Las Vegas Strip near the top of the The STRAT, this restaurant is famed for being the site of many grand romantic gestures, including marriage proposals (wink wink, nudge nudge).
But what makes the Top of the World truly unique is the fact that it spins. Every 80 minutes, the entire restaurant makes a full 360 degree revolution, providing guests with an ever-changing view of the glittering city lights. An “adventurous yet comforting” menu of lobster bisque, filet mignon, crème brûlée, and a selection of award-winning wines make for a truly magical night on top of the world.
Located inside the MGM Grand, Joel Robuchon is a three Michelin star restaurant offering only the finest French cuisine. If you’re looking for someplace quiet and intimate, Joel Robuchon is it. Art Deco furnishing, marble floors, and a lush garden terrace lend themselves to the opulence of this restaurant.
With 30 Michelin stars and counting, Joel Robuchon is the highest-ranked chef in the world. Enjoy a four-course meal including Scottish salmon, truffled ravioli, seared scallops, and more. For the true connoisseur, a 16-course degustation menu is also available. Joel Robuchon is just steps away from the iconic KÀ Cirque du Soleil theatre, which means you can enjoy world-class cuisine and spectacular action-packed acrobatics all in the same night.
The glamorous Beauty and Essex is the hidden gem of the Cosmopolitan, hidden behind an unassuming pawn shop. The brainchild of Chopped judge and celebrity chef Chris Santos, Beauty and Essex achieved massive success on Manhattan’s Lower East Side before making its way to Las Vegas.
The menu is inspired by Santos’ extensive travels throughout Europe, with dishes designed for sharing against an intimate candle lit backdrop. Don’t miss the roasted bone marrow with rioja-braised shallot marmalade or the chili dusted scallops with charred jalapeño butter.
Bavette’s at Park MGM is easily one of the most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas, with dim, sepia-toned lighting, deep red velour seating, and mahogany tables and accents. The ambiance here hearkens back to an intimate 1920s speakeasy, with a distinctly French flair.
Indulge in succulent USDA Prime steaks, honey-glazed salmon, king crab, and fresh East Coast oysters before heading over to the parlor bar for a Champagne Smash cocktail, infused with lemon-lime Bombay dry gin. Afterwards, take a romantic stroll through The Park. We can’t think of a better way to end the night than by sharing a kiss beneath the gorgeous 40-foot Bliss Dance sculpture.
Chef Alain Ducasse brings the Riviera to Las Vegas at Rivea inside Delano. French and Italian influences combine to create simple, fresh plates sourced from the West Coast. The upscale casual vibe makes Rivea the perfect destination for a breezy and romantic Valentine’s Day dinner and is one of the most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas.
Begin your evening at the nearby Skyfall Lounge at sundown for signature sunset cocktails and unparalleled 180 degree views as the desert sun disappears beneath the horizon.
This French steakhouse in the lobby of the Palazzo has a uniquely American touch. You can dine on grilled Maine lobster, California wild prawns, and an amazing selection of oysters. Morels also serves up an impressive charcuterie of more than 60 artisanal and farmhouse cheeses, mouthwatering steaks, and over 400 varieties of French and California wines by the bottle.
With the Venetian right next door, you can experience a fusion of French, American, and Italian culture all in one night. Book a ride in one of the Venetian gondolas to round out the perfect romantic evening.
Le Cirque, located inside the Bellagio, offers quintessential French cuisine in a palatial dining room—the ceiling is adorned with colorful, sweeping fabrics that evoke the restaurant’s namesake.
We suggest opting for the two-course pre-theater menu, which includes dishes such as sauteed foie gras, le poulet rôti, and a dessert of decadent praline mousse with white chocolate ice cream. After dinner, you can see O, one of the longest-running Cirque du Soleil shows on the Strip, at the stately O Theatre.
Twist is located on the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria (formerly the Mandarin Oriental). At this restaurant, you’ll have gorgeous views of the Las Vegas Strip thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the dining area, which is decorated in shades of purple and crimson, with modern globe pendant lights hanging from the ceiling.
Additionally, Twist is the only restaurant in the United States where you can enjoy a meal crafted by Pierre Gagnaire, world-renowned French chef. You and your date can choose from Chef Pierre’s 10-year anniversary tasting menu with option wine pairings, a four or six-course menu, or a seasonal a la carte menu. A vegetarian tasting menu is also available.
If you’re looking for an intimate dining experience with your lover, Restaurant Guy Savoy inside Caesars Palace is definitely among the most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas. This upscale joint is also quiet and cozy, with stunning views of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Hotel for an authentic Parisian experience. Modern art adorns the walls, and the presentation of each plate is exquisite.
The five-star Forbes tasting menu includes kusshi oyster concassée, artichoke and black truffle soup, Japanese wagyu beef, and ocoa pur noir with salted caramel. The restaurant also offers a notable wine pairing list and a fine cheese selection. Enjoy a nightcap at the regal and sophisticated Vista Cocktail Lounge located in the center of the casino’s nightlife.
