First post - Dinner recommendations
Started by fudgewapner on Friday, 19th October 2012 4:08 pm
Long-time lurker, first post. Love the site.
Going to Vegas Feb 10-12th, staying at Wynn. Been about 20 times, but this is the first trip in three years. Going with the wife and want a decent meal, likely steakhouse.
Thinking of - SW Steakhouse, Gordon Ramsey (read glowing VT review), or maybe CraftSteak where I have been before. Thoughts on one of the above or your own recommendation? Looking for ambiance and flavor. Price not too important.
Also, any breakfast spot that stands out? Enjoyed Terrace Point before- any recommended, or stick to Wynn or B buffet?
Thanks for any suggestions!

SW - love it there. Be sure to order the onion rings, they aren't listed on the menu but they have them and they are amazing

I do enjoy the rings of onion. Is a lakeside table key to enjoying SW?

Have breakfast at Bachanal Buffet at Caesar's or Hash House a Go Go at the under construction Imperial Palace

I'd also recommend the Bouchon at the Venetian or the Paris buffet for breakfast.

I would second Paris buffet for breakfast, although it has been a couple years since I've been and I hear it might have gone downhill a bit.

Nothing compares to the Peppermill for breakfast & 'ole school Vegas if you're hungry. Bouchon if you're into a reserved dining experience that you should try at least once.

2 questions about Peppermills - is the breakfast better their dinner? We had dinner there on the recommendation of several people in Vegas but I thought it was just ok.
2nd - we couldn't get a cab out there and had to walk over to Circus Circus to get one (even calling the company and they saidthey wouldnt) Any trick to that or is that just how it is?

Thanks for the recommendation - Bouchon could be the breakast winner - gravlax or sourdough waffles would be good choices.
For Paris buffet - are the crepes worth it or overated?

I'm not a crepes connoisseur so I couldn't say for sure. They do have a crepes station and I like them... But I will say that the line for it is always pretty long.

For breakfast dining Bouchon or Tableau
For breakfast diner Peppermill or downtown at Du'Par's
Steakhouse I actually preferred Country Club Grill to SW for food but it's hard to beat the ambiance at SW.

My first post-dinner recommendation is to wander around and gamble and drink. Hit Casino Royale for some gamblin fun and then slide up to the Mandarin Bar for the complete spectrum of experience. :P

Sitting in Terminal 3 heading back home...
Had a lot of good steaks in Vegas -- one of the best for ambiance, food and service was SW at Wynn. Book early and let them know it's a special evening and you will have a fantastic evening
fudgewapner responded on Sunday, 21st October 2012
Thanks for all the tips - likely going to be SW for nice dinner, traditional B or Wynn buffet for breakfast, saving Bouchon or Tableau for next trip. Maybe Peppermill for evening drinks. As long as I can have some good rum and not hear screaming kids, I'm good.

last feb i went to craft steak, had a truly disappointing meal... We got seated 1.5 hrs after our reservation time. Food didn't come for an hour after we ordered. I was literally walking out when the food came. Being 11ish by the time it came around i was famished and sat back down. Food was of good quality but the service was horrid.
CUT is great both service and food. I also had a really nice meal at the public house @ Venetian this summer. Their rib eye was great.
