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 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 six most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas, newly updated for 2021.
Mon Ami Gabi
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!
Valentine’s Day Dinner To Go: Having a socially distant holiday this year? Be sure to take some Parisian magic home with you with their two-person Valentine’s Day dinner pickup option. You’ll get a French baguette with carrot amuse and sweet cream butter, Maine Lobster Bisque with crème fraîche, a Little Gem salad, choice of filet of beef tenderloin with truffle butter, au jus, and hand-cut frites or skate swing, confited marble potatoes, and lemon-caper brown butter. For dessert, you can choose between chocolate caramel tart or maldon salt and citron bars with chantilly cream.
COVID-19 Restrictions: Mon Ami Gabi is currently operating at 25% capacity, so reserve a table now before they’re all gone!
Top of the World
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. This year’s Valentine’s Day menu includes a three-course prix fixe menu featuring oyster amuse with caviar, roasted beet salad or smoked beef cheeks with golden potato gnocchi, beef wellington and beef tenderloin prepared with brandy and parmesan spinach, shallot and herb confit peewee potatoes, and brown butter apple blondies for dessert.
Beauty and Essex
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 Steakhouse and Bar
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.
COVID-19 Restrictions: Nevada requires all dining to be limited to a maximum of 4 people per table and reservations are required. Masks are also required to be worn in all restaurant venues unless actively eating or drinking with food or beverages present on your dining table.
Restaurant Guy Savoy
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.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant
How could we forget the Eiffel Tower Restaurant? If gazing up at the Paris Hotel’s Eiffel Tower replica isn’t romantic enough, you can always dine on its eleventh floor. This restaurant serves updated classic French cuisine in a classy environment with some of the most spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Whether you’re planning a Valentine’s weekend brunch or dinner, this is the place to be. This year’s prix fixe menus are priced affordably at just $59 per person for brunch or $195 per person for dinner. The Eiffel Tower Restaurant is also an excellent setting to pop the question—they even offer proposal packages to make it all the more special.
COVID-19 Restrictions: Dine in service will remain at 25% capacity, with social distancing guidelines in place.
