What are some good restaurants in Las Vegas?

I am heading there on business soon and I need some good places to eat at.

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Memorable food cooked in an open kitchen. It's at the MGM Grand. Chef Robuchon's Mansion is there as well...but I had neither the dress nor the resources to eat there. As it stands my wife and I walked out of L'Atelier tip, tax and bill $350 later. I wanted to explore other venues, but I was there for a friends wedding so most of my times was spent with that....so I had to pick just one place to hit and I picked a winner.

Check out http://www.yelp.com/lasvegas for some very detailed reviews. Are you looking for a fine dining experience where money is no problem or just a good dinner after a show?
If you are on a budget, Rosemary's Restaurant is consistently wonderful and much more reasonable than anything you will find in a casino. Or check out Firefly, which is just behind the strip and serves great tapas and sangria.
For a high-end meal: Robuchon, Guy Savoy, Alex and Restaurant Charlie (Charlie Trotter's new place).
Beware the high volume, very expensive places like Carnevino and Michael Mina.

Thanks! Those looks like some good choices. I like to do 2 or 3 higher end meals and then stay on a budget for the rest.

Don't discount the buffets in Lost Bagels. Many are very good values, some offer excellent food. We always hit a buffet or two when in town ... there are plenty of reviews on line.

Last time I was there we tried a fun place called Hash House a Go Go. Their slogan was "Twisted farm food." They do breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We did dinner. They had stuff like Fried Chicken and Waffles and Hammered Pork Tenderloin. I remember big piles of Horseradish Mashed Potatoes and the Fried Green Tomato Stack for an app was good too. Here's there web site.

viva las vegas hotels

not come off as a hotel shill but the Pho restaurant @ TI was very good. Just a few nights ago, I had the beef stew bowl with rice noodles and it was great. Braised Beef brisket chunks with a rich flavorful ginger broth, almost like my grandmother's. Their Vietnamese spring rolls weren't bad though small.

I'm googling Pho restaurant now, TI is treasure island right?
post #11 of 17
Yes it is and Pho wasn't really expensive either. Each bowl would be equal to say 54oz almost filled to the top for under $10/bowl, almost as cheap as eating at 1 of my favorite Vietnamese noodle places at my home Chinatown. I think its relatively new and crowds aren't very and Asians like myself are the primary customers. The space is shared with their coffee shop.

I'm currently at McCarran not wanting to go back home yet.

Excellent Seafood

McCormick & Schmick's Seafood is a great place to go if you love FRESH seafood. The food and drinks are naturally prepared...The atmosphere is great as well. If you are ever in Las Vegas and you want a GREAT place to eat and your taste buds are calling for seafood...this is YOUR place!!!

Any food facility under The Steve Wynn Banner is very good. Some of the Chef themed places just capitalize on their names food is so so and eratic.

I love steak houses, and my favorite is Gallagher's Steakhouse at New York,New York. Try it out it is one of the best steakhouses on this planet!

I worked at Rosemary's Restaurant for a year and can vouch for its integrity. Other upscale favorites of mine were Picassos and Aqua though haven't been there in a while.
