    My wife and I are heading to Vegas 14-19 May and she's always wanted to go to Hugo's Cellar. I plan on taking her there for Mother's Day dinner, assuming I can get a reservation, but I also want to surprise her a another romantic dinner or two. Any recommendations? I'm returning from a 6-plus month deployment less than a week before our LV trip so I want to make this trip extra special. Also, any other suggestions besides dinner spots would are welcome. Thanks in advance.

    What's your budget? You are likely to get recommendations that run the gamut from $100+ to $25- per person unless you give us an idea.

    And are you looking for another downtown restaurant? Or anywhere in/around Vegas?

    We enjoyed top of the world at the Stratosphere .

    The STRAT gets a bad press on here but for views I doubt you can beat it.

    Revolving restaurant with views of the whole valley. Food was great.

    My wife didn't enjoy it much as she hates heights and every time she dared to glimpse out someone was doing a bungee jump.

    We enjoyed it too. The food wasn't the best we've had in Vegas, but it wasn't bad. However, we made our reservation for shortly before sunset and enjoyed the view of the sun going down and the lights coming up. One of my favorite sights in Vegas. I think it was on the more expensive side, with it being around $200, including wine with dinner and a dessert.

    Both are about $200-$250 for a couple.

    Yes, budget? Food type?

    Where are you staying? I am always big on finding someplace close to avoid the cab/uber time/distraction.

    For atmosphere, great food and wonderful service, I always recommend Alize at Palms.

    +1 on breanna's suggestion.

    In addition to price and type of food, what is "romantic"? I'm not trying to be a dullard here, but my wife and I, for instance, love a cozy bistro or a buzzy brasserie. We're not so taken by the old school dark-and-burgundy.

    So true. What is wonderful for one person is a drag for another. What is middle price for one person is obscene for another. What is tasty for one is "no thanks" for another. All are fine, but different tastes, likes and mood for different folks.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback. Will be looking into all of the recommended restaurants. My apologies for a lack of details, I should have provided those upfront. Here are some details if anyone has additional ideas: view of the strip, relatively quiet atmosphere, secluded seating not required, great service, cuisine type doesn't matter, and total price under $400.

    Lago at Bellagio has outdoor seating next to fountain show, v pretty spot for dinner! Menu is like tapas, small plates for sharing, but Italian food. Hoping to bring my wife to Hugos in July when we come out! Never been there! Have fun!!!
     
    Can't wait!

    With that said, Bellagio has a number of options. I would probably pick Prime. I am assuming average drinks - as wine could blow that number in a hurry. Still, a $100 bottle of wine and two $40-$100 dinners still put you way under that number. Partial view of the strip.

    If view is more important, the rest at top of Delano would be great. Have not eaten in Eiffel tower, but hear that is pretty decent.

    I would recommend Lago, Prime, and Eiffel Tower as well. Eiffel Tower at 8 pm or so will get the most wow effect. Arrive 30 minutes early and try to get a seat at the bar prior to the meal.
    Golden Steer, Gene Georges at Aria, SW Steak at Wynn are solid choices too

    I have never eaten at this restaurant, but I hear Michael's Gourmet Room at South Point is one of the nicest and most romantic restaurants in Las Vegas.
    The Top of the World at the Stratosphere would be a nice choice for a romantic and fun dinner too. They have good food in a nice atmosphere with one of the best views in Las Vegas. Try to reserve your table here so that half of you meal will be during the daylight and half of your meal is when it's dark. The daylight will help you to see all over the valley and the night dining will allow you to see the neon.
