What's The Best Spot for An Anniversary Dinner on The Strip?

Time for another VegasChatter Question! Do you have a question about Vegas, too? We bet you do. Send it to us and you just might see it here on VegasChatter!

It's February and love is in the air. As lovers descend on Vegas for romantical getaway, we've received a question from a Vegas visitor who needs a top-notch spot for an anniversary dinner. She asks:

My husband and I go to Vegas for our anniversary every year (we got married there so it just kind of makes sense J). Last year we had dinner at Roy’s – which was fabulous – personal touches are the best. This year we were thinking of maybe dining on the strip. I really want some sort of view (either high above the strip or of my beloved Bellagio fountains -- Mix, Top of the World, Alize, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, Olives, Picasso, Prime). Any good suggestions?

As soon as you said anniversary we thought of the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. Sure, it's cheesy (you take the Eiffel Tower Ride to the top) and, yes, it's also expensive (soups start at $17, steaks at $59) but the views are incredible.

While good views can be had from nearly any spot inside the restaurant, you could book a special pre-theater table at 5 or 5:15 p.m. to sit you next to a window. Otherwise, make your reservation well enough in advance so they can accommodate your window request.

This being your anniversary, and since you got married in Vegas, we bet it won't be too hard. Also, The Eiffel Tower Restaurant is rather known as a popular spot to propose (so much so they offer Proposal Packages) so if you have other personal touches you'd like implemented, they surely can handle it. You can even tweet the manager!

BUT... the Eiffel Tower is rather touristy. If you want something more refined, Picasso at Bellagio would be the best choice. Guaranteed views of the fountains, 2-Michelin star fare from France and Spain created by Chef Julian Serrano, nearly 1,500 wine selections from European vineyards and, of course, real Picasso masterpieces hanging on the wall. Once again, call and ask in advance for a window seating. But, try not to look at the bill. Hand 'em your credit card and worry about it in the morning.

Now, we've helped you... how about you help us by telling us your Vegas Wedding Story?

Hiding in Plain Sight

I was actually just talking to a friend about what a little-tallked about gem Prime is at Bellagio. We were both impressed with both the cuisine, the intimacy of the space, the views of the Bellagio Fountains and the service. He even preferred it over Gordon Ramsay Steak.

My first time there was for a Christmas Eve dinner and I have been a big fan ever since.

Great info

Thanks for all that info, I will spread the word around town.

I second PRIME

Eiffel Tower food is so-so with very high prices.

Food is excellent but very limited choices at Picassos.

Prime has it all. Beautiful decor. Outstanding service. Nice wine list. Steakhouse menu with seafood options.

I forgot to mention the view at water level and the roar of the fountains being so close.

Prime is my fav place to eat and I always make an advance reservation weeks ahead so I get the window table.

Thanks everyone!

I appreciate the feedback :)
