When it comes finding the perfect place to propose, Las Vegas has no shortage of romantic locations to pop the question. The Bellagio Fountains is a popular choice as is Red Rock Canyon (especially at sunset). And, of course, there’s always a gondola ride through the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Resort. But if you’re looking to get down on one knee over a dreamy, candlelit dinner, then the following list can help. Below are the six best restaurants for a marriage proposal in Las Vegas.
1. Top of the World
The Top of the World restaurant at the Strat Hotel and Casino ranks high in all three of the categories needed for the perfect marriage proposal: Beautiful views, gourmet food and a romantic atmosphere.
The rotating restaurant and lounge is located on the 106th floor of the casino—844 feet above the ground—offering diners a unique 360-degree view of the entire Las Vegas Valley through its floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Enjoy an American menu of steaks and seafood and then toast your newly engaged status with a glass of wine or champagne. Top of the World was awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for nearly 18 years in a row.
2. Eiffel Tower Restaurant
The Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino is an obvious choice for an evening of love, as you can’t get much more romantic than a Paris-themed restaurant inside a 541-foot-tall replicate of the Eiffel Tower.
The restaurant offers a view of the spectacular Bellagio Fountains and the surrounding Las Vegas Strip as well as opulent red carpeting, plush red seating and dainty white-linen tablecloths for an added touch of romance and luxury.
Dine on a classic French cuisine, such as beef wellington and roasted rack of lamb and then pop the question over a glass wine from the restaurant’s extensive wine list, which features over 1,400 labels from both the US and France.
Like the name suggests, Lakeside at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort is situated directly in front of a lake; Wynn’s whimsical “Lake of Dreams.” Lake of Dreams is a picturesque tree-lined lake that showcases a majestic, 90-foot waterfall. It’s an ideal location for a proposal because not only does it offer scenic sunset views, but it also offers a front-row seat to the nightly light, water and music show.
Try the charred steak (prepared in five different ways) or the wide range of Hawaiian seafood options: From the crab and coconut soup appetizer to the blackened Hawaiian swordfish to the King Crab fettuccine. All of the seafood is caught by family fishermen in Hawaii and flown in to the Wynn to ensure the most fresh and authentic seafood meal possible.
The 400-label wine list includes wines from around the world (including California and France) as well as a number of specialty cocktails, such as the popular “Lakeside Smash” (Maker’s Mark 46 Bourbon, Chareau Aloe Liqueur, hibiscus grenadine, watermelon and lemon juices with mint).
4. Guy Savoy Restaurant
Serving elegant French cuisine from celebrity chef Guy Savoy, this fine-dining restaurant at Caesar’s Palace is considered one of the best restaurants in all of Las Vegas.
Sit outside on the patio to enjoy a romantic view of the Eiffel Tower or for an added unique experience, opt for the Krug’s Chef Table, which features a 10-course tasting menu paired with glasses of Krug Champagne.
Every meal starts with a bread cart. The artichoke and black truffle soup (paired with mushroom brioche and truffle butter) is one of the most popular items on the menu. For dessert, try the chocolate mousse—it’s made using Savoy’s grandmother’s special recipe
5. Legacy Club
The Legacy Club at the Circa Resort and Casino may not be a restaurant, but as one of the newest and hippest lounges in Las Vegas (it just opened in December 2020), it certainly has enough wow-factor for a memorable proposal.
Legacy Club sits at the top of the 458-foot tower of the trendy downtown casino Circa. The 8,4000-foot lounge has couches in the main area, but the best place to propose is on the outdoor terrace. With fire-pits and a stunning view of downtown Las Vegas, it’s an intimate and unique setting for a one-of-a-kind proposal.
The drink list includes a wide variety of classic drinks with a Vegas twist. The lounge also offers a sunset package that includes two specialty cocktails, a champagne toast at sunset and terrace seating to accommodate up to 12 people. This is ideal if you’d like friends or family members to be present for the big moment.
6. Marche Braccus
Marche Braccus is the perfect choice if you’re looking to get away from the bustle and chaos of the Strip. Ranked among the Top 10 Vegas Restaurants, Marche Braccus is an award-winning French bistro located on a lake about 10 miles away from the Las Vegas tourist corridor.
Whether you opt to sit on the patio or dine outside, you’ll be treated to picturesque lakeside views. Las Vegas Weekly ranks Marche Braccus as one of the 20 most important restaurants in Las Vegas.
Enjoy filet mignon with whipped potatoes, trumpet mushrooms and roasted asparagus or the New Zealand rack of lamb with sweet potato, apple hash and candied walnuts as well as contemporary French and Mediterranean cuisine, such as steak frites, duck breast, escargot or seared foie gras. The menu also includes a notable wine list, with over 950 labels to choose from.
