Available at: Payard Patisserie & Bistro at Caesars Palace.
Price: $52 per person.

If you like it, you’d better put a ring on it:

Available at: The Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, Feb. 10 – Feb. 14.
Price: $145 per person. (Expert tip: There is also a Sunset seating at 4 p.m. for $95 per person.)
Description:  The Eiffel Tower Restaurant has a long-standing history of being one of the most romantic places in Las Vegas—and not only on Valentine’s Day. However, on the most romantic day of the year, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant goes all out with their “Diner de la St. Valentin,” a five-course menu. Sumptuous dishes like foie gras with duck prosciutto, prime beef tenderloin and lobster bisque are served with attention to detail and the customer always in mind.

“I think the most important thing, when you come to a fine dining restaurant, is you want to feel special. I think the entire staff will make you feel special…they want to spoil you a little bit,” says Jean Joho, chef and proprietor of the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.

And, when it’s time to pop the question, the staff will help you arrange the perfect presentation. They even have a special dessert that can house an engagement ring — just make sure you propose before your loved one takes the first bite. On Valentine’s Day alone, dozens of couples will be getting engaged at the magical restaurant overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.

“I think we help to give romance. We provide the atmosphere to be romantic,” says Joho.
