Las Vegas is one of the most romantic cities in the world, especially when it comes to its fine dining restaurants. And on Valentine’s Day, the stakes are even higher, with chefs preparing special menus to make the night memorable. The hardest part? Choosing a place for you and your beloved, because, while it’s impossible to go wrong, you want to make it just right. Here, we’ve rounded up three restaurants for that magical evening. All you have to do is call and make a reservation.
Top of the World at the Strat
One of the most iconic restaurants in the Valley, Top of the World, situated 800 feet above the Strip, lives up to its name. The rotating dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows offers sweeping, 365-degree views of the Strip and surrounding mountains. The menu includes surf-and-turf classics such as dry-aged Prime steaks and a variety of fish, along with a shellfish tower brimming with shrimp, lobster tail, king crab legs and snow crab claw. Dive into the cocktail program as the evening progresses, and one of you might find yourselves proposing before the night ends. 702-380-7711.
Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar at Park MGM
On the other end of the Strip, Bavette’s offers a different kind of atmosphere. You won’t find any windows here; instead, dark wood panels, dimly lit Tiffany lamps and leather banquettes encourage intimate conversations as you sip Old Fashioneds and martinis. The East Coast oysters are fresh and briny, and the steaks are USDA Prime, prepared simply with béarnaise and steak salt. Finish the evening by sharing a hot fudge sundae royale, or opt for a final drink at the secret lounge. 702-730-6700.
Tucked in the heart of Chinatown, Partage offers a modern interpretation of French classics, specializing in tasting menus of three, five, seven and eight courses. It boasts an airy yet intimate dining room of tables and booths, as well as a gallery kitchen. For Valentine’s Day, Partage will offer a unique menu for $125 per person, with an optional wine pairing. Start with a hibiscus-glazed foie gras macaron and end with raspberry sorbet and a Champagne rose emulsion, with so much more in between. 3839 Spring Mountain Road, 702-582-5852.
