Announcing their engagement at the venue was "a nice surprise for all their guests," according to the restaurant's Facebook page. "Congrats to them both and LOVE the ring!"

Phaneuf "made the reservation about a week ago but never said it was for an engagement party," a source tells Us exclusively. "They invited 40 friends and family to celebrate at the restaurant."

"The female wait staff were gushing about the ring saying it was 'quite impressive' and 'huge.' At one point, Dion and Elisha both got up an gave a speech and thanked everyone for being there and celebrating this exciting time with them."

Phaneuf, who is captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, made his NHL debut in 2005. Cuthbert's other TV and film credits include 24, Old School, The Girl Next Door, Love Actually and House of Wax.

Cuthbert, a native of Alberta, Canada, evidently has a thing for hockey hunks: She dated NHL star Sean Avery, 32, from 2005 to 2007.
