The restaurant that brings you breathtaking views from the 64th floor of Mandalay Bay and a dramatic private two-top up a stunning staircase (perfect for proposals), is a popular spot for whipping up romance. Chef Alain Ducasse has created a spectacular menu that serves delectable dishes such as slow-baked halibut and glazed spareribs with mango and avocado. If impressing a new lady friend, you might want to spring for the lobster salad, duck fois gras with black mission fig, or Caspian golden osetra caviar. To extend the date, head for the attached lounge for a post-dinner nightcap. 3950 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 632-7200 delanolasvegas.com

Eiffel Tower

Oh là là: The Paris hotel’s Eiffel Tower Restaurant takes romance as seriously as you might expect, from the champagne to the tables for two with views of the famous Las Vegas Strip. The chefs there even do a special menu that’s to die for on Valentine’s Day, which draws 400 couples in one night. If you scored a reservation, take the private elevator near the front of the main lobby to the top of the tower. Rich burgundy-colored carpet leads you to your table, where it’s best to kick off with a glass of bubbly. The menu at this haven for marriage proposals is heavy on fois gras, soufflés, and caviar, and his lamb and beef Wellington are revered by chefs up and down the Strip. 3655 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 948-6937 eiffeltowerrestaurant.com

Guy Savoy
Melt her heart with an elegant dinner at Guy Savoy, the Vegas outpost of the three Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris. Savoy is known the world over for his truffle soup, which is served with a truffle brioche slathered with truffle butter. On the higher end of the price spectrum, the Caesars Palace hot spot offers a series of tasting menus, from its signature to a black truffle version and a Valentine’s Day special. Entrees such as grilled turbot fish and beef tenderloin melt in your mouth and are served with the restaurant’s impeccable service. All meals end with a fanciful platter of sweets, including homemade marshmallows and petit fours in all kinds of flavors. 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 731-7286 caesars.com/caesars-palace

Sinatra

Italian food that Ol’ Blue Eyes himself would have loved to feast on, Sinatra sets the stage for an old-school date night. After choosing a red wine, dig into the menu. Drool-worthy pastas include agnolotti pockets with butternut squash and brown butter, gnocchi with wild mushrooms and pesto – and Frankie’s favorite spaghetti and clams, of course. The high-end Encore restaurant makes a gorgeous fish, and meat favorites include veal parmigiana, veal Milanese, ossobuco, and chicken parmigiana. 3131 South Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-5320 wynnlasvegas.com

Scarpetta
Fall in love over spectacular pasta at Cosmopolitan’s Scarpetta – home to Chef Scott Connant’s famous spaghetti. Other signature items include seared sea scallops with porcini mushrooms and spiced duck breast with root vegetables, with Italian specialties including fettuccine with lamb ragu and bone marrow agnolotti with brown butter. Cozy up to your date with red wine, and dig in. Save room for dessert – it’ll be hard to choose between the coconut panna cotta, hazelnut brown butter cake, and Nutella and vanilla bamboloni with chocolate shortbread. 3708 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 698-7960 cosmopolitanlasvegas.com

Prime Steakhouse

Prime seating at Prime looks out over the stunning Bellagio lake, home of the famous dancing fountains. Chef Jean Georges Vongerichten’s French steakhouse is big on ambiance: Think cozy overstuffed chairs in lush fabrics, dimmed lighting, and excellent service. If that doesn’t initiate a spark, dig into the mouthwatering dishes, including the famous Wagyu platter, short ribs, and bone-in rib-eye. Order a nice bottle of wine (the list is as thick as a bible) and relax into the romantic evening. 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 693-8484 bellagio.com

Marche Bacchus
Located off-Strip on the shores of Lake Las Vegas, Marche Bacchus is unlike any other restaurant in Vegas. An impressive wine list is displayed via bins and bins of bottles at the entrance – choose one or two before being led outside to the patio dining on the lake. Open year-round, the culinary getaway uses a fireplace and heating lamps in winter, so guests may still dine on the water, home to ducks and water turtles. Start off with a cheese or charcuterie platter and crack open one of your bottles of wine. For $25, your server will shave white truffle onto any entrée (available seasonally); options include lobster and rock shrimp risotto with crème fraiche and tarragon oil, and Prince Edward Island mussels in white wine sauce. Then linger over a dessert of beignets, chocolate mousse, or bread pudding. 2620 Regatta Drive, (702) 804-8008 marchebacchus.com

Mizumi
The grandiose red and gold design, plus tables overlooking Wynn’s fanciful homemade lake and waterfall, make Mizumi a sophisticated choice for date night. Featuring robatayaki, teppanyaki, and sushi menus, Mizumi is the kind of Japanese restaurant where you can have fun ordering a bunch of new dishes to share. We’ll get you started – don’t skip the wagyu beef tartare tacos, Iberico pork with Fuji apples, the Mizumi roll with lobster and yuzu mustard aioli, and the Kami Nabe seafood hot pot with maya prawns and king crab. 3131 South Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3320 wynnlasvegas.com

Hakkasan
Hakkasan’s dark, cavernous dining room sets the scene for a romantic meal from Michelin-starred Chef Ho Chee Boon. Get in the mood with an intoxicating signature cocktail (the list is long), like the Iron Rose (Absolut Elyx, Grand Marnier, and white tea) or Green Destiny (Zubrowka Bison Grass vodka, cucumber, kiwi, and apple juice). Tables are cozy and private, thanks to a stunning interior design using partitions. And you’ll love the mouth-watering dishes like crispy duck salad, roasted silver cod with champagne and Chinese honey, stir-fry black pepper beef ribeye with merlot, and the beautiful exotic fruit platter for dessert. 3799 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 891-7888 hakkasan.com

SW Steakhouse

Famous couples such as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Posh and David Beckham have dined at Wynn’s SW, and it’s easy to see why. The wine list and delicious menu are just the beginning – in good weather, couples dining a deux often sit outside on the patio overlooking Wynn’s Lake of Dreams. It’s a fun, romantic setting, and the whimsical little vignettes that are performed throughout the night make sure there is always something to talk about. Stand-out dishes include the steaks (swing for the Chile-rubbed double rib-eye), crab cakes, lamb chops, plus the sinful sides like creamed corn and mashed potatoes. 3131 South Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3325 wynnlasvegas.com
