An Indulgent Evening for Two: Las Vegas 10 Most Romantic Restaurants



Dinner is a key part of any romantic evening out, and if you’re in Las Vegas, you’ve got a wide selection of restaurants to chose from. While the definition of “romantic” might be subjective, Vegas’ most couple-appropriate restaurants universally include impeccable service, an upscale setting and delicious cuisine. Add a little candlelight, and the picture is complete.

One of the city’s most romantic restaurants is the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which sits on the 11th floor the Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower replica. The cuisine is French and the view is unmatched for romance. The restaurant has one of the most romantic tables in Las Vegas, where the only view diners have is of each other and the Fountains of Bellagio across the street.

The view at Lakeside at the Wynn is also lovely, but instead of a city-wide panorama, guests can see the tranquil Lake of Dreams. Lakeside is known for its seafood, but also for its beautiful decor and elegant ambiance.

While many of Las Vegas’ most romantic restaurants feature French cuisine, couples will easily find other options. Steaks, seafood and American are just a few of the cuisines you’ll see on our list.

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate Valentine’s Day, a birthday or an anniversary, our list will help you find the right spot. Scroll down for our suggestions on Las Vegas’ most romantic restaurants.

Offering prime cuts of beef charred to perfection, signature side dishes, an extensive wine list and its famed 24-layer Chocolate Cake, Strip House just might be the Strip's most sensual steakhouse. The double entendre name refers to the restaurant's signature cut of steak and to the series of early 1900s Studio Manasse black-and-white nudes on the siren-red walls. While the decor is enough to keep your attention for a while, it's Strip House's savory menu that truly leaves a lasting impression. Nothing disappoints, from the succulent Strip House Roasted Beef Jerky to the lobster. In addition to standard cuts of beef, this sexy steakhouse's selections include classic cuts for two, like the Porterhouse for Two and the 24-ounce center cut chateaubriand. Other entrees include sesame crusted ahi tuna, organic chicken or seared diver scallops.

Other mouth-watering dishes include lobster, duck breast, and Colorado lamb. Shareable dishes range from soups, salads, pasta and pizza to specialties like beef carpaccio, marinated sea bass and a charcuterie plate.

This romantic restaurant inside the Wynn is known for its breathtaking patio alongside the Lake of Dreams and its amazing specialty seafood menu by chef David Walzog. The array of tasty seafood selections includes wild-caught seafood, fresh-caught Hawaiian fish, and an extensive selection of raw delicacies and shellfish. The fish is sustainably harvested, using hook and line. Oven roasted Maine or Scottish Blue lobster is offered, prepared simply or with a red chili rub with a choice of butter: drawn, yuzu-basil or spicy harissa. Guests who aren't seafood fans can choose from a selection of beef, like a classic New York, rib eye or filet, or perhaps the organic Jidori chicken breast with white beans, wild mushrooms, arugula and herb chicken jus. A vegetarian menu is also available.

Marché Bacchus French Bistro & Wine Shop


 

Serving up one of Las Vegas' most unforgettable dining experience, Marché Bacchus is only short drive from the Las Vegas Strip but gives you the feeling that you've left the city and perhaps landed in Southern California. Located in the Desert Shores community west of the Strip, at Marché Bacchus guests can enjoy a leisurely meal while watching the ducks swim by on Lake Jacqueline and sipping on some wine from the wine shop. The lovely setting is a perfect backdrop to the delicious French cuisine. In addition to cheese and charcuterie selections, the bistro serves soups, salads, appetizers and an array of specialty sandwiches and entrees. The delectable escargot is not to be missed, and the Steak Frites are habit-forming. Desserts include a perfectly flavored créme brulee as well as tiramisu, bread pudding and a cheese selection.

The Barrymore Restaurant

The Barrymore's style is Old Vegas-meets-Old Hollywood, which suits this hidden gem perfectly. Situated right off the lobby of Royal Resort, everything from the velvety booths to the film reels on the ceiling oozes a vintage ambiance in all the right ways. The real draw, however, is the food, which is reasonably priced and delicious. You'll find classic American cuisine like steaks and seafood, all prepared with a stylish, tasty twist, like the Char Sui Grilled Pork Chop, marinated in a char sui marinade and served with ginger cream sauce and pickled bean sprout salad. The restaurant also boasts an extensive wine list of both domestic and imported wines. The Barrymore's Social Hour is daily from 5-7 p.m. when guests can enjoy small plates like Oysters Rockefeller and Roast Bone Marrow, $2 beers, $20 bottles of Champagne and $5 glasses of wine.

Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro is one of Las Vegas' best restaurants, not only for its steaks but also for the rest of its notable menu. Morels' selection of Iowa corn-fed, bone-in steaks--aged 28 days--all go perfectly with a side of mushrooms, Brussels Sprouts or one of the many types of potatoes. The restaurant is also well-known for its seasonal salads. Of course, no meal would be complete without one of Morels' decadent desserts, like the chocolate souffle or a trio of creme brulees. Have a yen for something chilled? Then try Morels' house-made sorbets or ice cream. A wide selection of cocktails, spirits and beer is also available.

Fine dining in Las Vegas was once all about gourmet rooms, which featured the best beef and seafood, along with a few Italian dishes and the obligatory escargot. Today, the range of fine dining in Las Vegas extends much further, but the city still has a few traditional dining establishments like Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens. Steaks are given their due here, especially the prime rib, which comes in sixteen and twenty-four-ounce sizes. The salad is prepared table-side. Seafood includes lobster, crab, shrimp and fish. Dishes like Veal Marsala, rack of lamb and roasted duck complete a menu that gives diners a wealth of options. To put the finishing touches on this Old Vegas experience, every lady receives a rose when she's seated.
