Las Vegas is all about hooking up and having fun, so it's important to plan the perfect date for Valentine's Day. Of course, there are a few top restaurants ready to offer something special for the romantic evening.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant
With a spectacular view that overlooks the Bellagio fountains, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the Paris resort is one of the most romantic dining spots on the Strip. Two seatings are available for special prix fixe dinners. The Sunset Seating is 4 to 4:45 p.m. ($125 per person) while the Gala Dinner is 5 to 10:45 p.m. ($195 per person).
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
This Miami import inside the Forum Shops at Caesars has more than a few hearty steak and seafood options for sharing. That helps set the tone for a romantic evening, whether enjoying the Florida stone crab claws or the 16 oz. bone-in filet mignon. The restaurant is also promising a special surprise treat at the end of the meal for Valentine's Day.
D.vino Italian Food & Wine Bar
The Park MGM's Italian restaurant is serving up a four course prix fixe menu for Valentine's Day. It includes arugula with braised pork belly, spinach and ricotta heart-shaped ravioli, grilled flatiron steak with potatoes and a chocolate covered raspberry mousse for dessert.
The stylish steakhouse at the Cosmopolitan has a couple's prix fixe menu featuring a prime dry-aged tomahawk ribeye and fried oysters with spinach for $152. A special dessert of strawberry shortcake is being offered as well, made with a fresh buttermilk biscuit, strawberry compote, ice cream and white chocolate.
The Palm Restaurant
Head to the Forum Shops at Caesars, where the Palm Restaurant is serving a Surf n' Turf for two. The three-course dinner (at $195 per couple) is headlined by a four-pound Nova Scotia lobster alongside a prime 18 oz. New York strip or 14 oz. filet mignon.
This longtime Las Vegas favorite is offering its special heart-shaped pizza in honor of Valentine's Day (although it's available throughout the month of February). Have it delivered if you want to spend a romantic night alone in your hotel room… or stop by for the dine-in special. It includes the pizza, a heart-shaped red velvet whoopie pie for dessert from Lulu's Bread & Breakfast and a 750ml bottle of Hug L'Originale sparkling wine. A portion of the $29.99 price benefits the American heart Association.
Smith & Wollensky
The steakhouse on the Strip has plenty of items for two to share, including a shellfish tower (featuring lobster, Alaskan King crab, jumbo shrimp, oysters and clams) and twin petite filets wrapped in bacon. The restaurant also has a famous coconut cake for dessert and a strong wine list with a rotating selection of favorites from the sommelier.
For a romantic option just off the Strip, the Tuscany's Italian restaurant is serving up a four-course Valentine's Day dinner. It begins with a choice of sweet potato lobster bisque or frisee salad, followed by lobster carbonara. The main course is a choice between flank steak and prosciutto or sea bass with grilled asparagus. Options for dessert are vanilla panna cotta with pistachio or molten chocolate cake.
