Paris is the City of Love and definitely one of the most, if not the most, romantic city in the world! There is a large choice of perfect places to pop the question in Paris.
First of all, decide whether you want a public or private proposal? If you want to keep it private, I would suggest hiring a wedding planner specialised in events organisation, who can make it flawless, stress-free for you. I can recommend you experienced professionals. Hiring a proposal planner will also give you access to their collection of the most beautiful hotels and restaurants. You can also be sure that they will prepare beautiful decoration for the room or terrace.
You can also book a nice dinner in a luxury hotel yourself - for example at the Shangri-La Paris.

Option 1 - surprise her yourself.
Leave her alone for a moment and come back with some flowers and the ring. You can book the delivery from the florist around the corner, for example.
Option 1 - surprise her with a waiter's help.
You can have a deal with the waiter to replace your normal order with 2 glasses of champagne and bring it on a platter with the ring
