2. Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Hotel

Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Hotel
If you’ve been to Paris, France, you might be disappointed over a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas, but then again, you might as well get disappointed to see the Statue of Liberty replicated there, too. But if you get over it, you stand a good chance of eventually becoming a big fan of everything related to the cuisine at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. You can, in fact, transplant what is good in France and improve on it. The Eiffel Tower Restaurant is certainly one of the must-visit establishments in Las Vegas, especially if you don’t plan on visiting France any time soon. "Romantic," "chic" and "panoramic" are all words that fall short of describing the Eiffel Tower experience, if you're a pushover for good French cuisine. And with the fountains of the Bellagio erupting across the street and the delicate aromas of decadent soufflés wafting from the kitchen, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more romantic location to break bread with your belle amour. Oui, c’est magnifique!

Jonathan Gold of Gourmet Magazine once called Lotus of Siam the single best Thai restaurant in North America and he’s not alone in such high praise. Just about every restaurant guide places Lotus of Siam in the top echelon of Las Vegas eateries. With an emphasis on northern Thai cuisine, the chef Saipin Chutima is known for such specialties as Kanom-Jean-Nam-Ngaew (vermicelli in curry sauce), Kang Hung Lay (pork stew), Green chili dip (fire extinguisher hot), and Nam Kao Tod (minced sour sausage to die for). Saipin Chutima has a following that extends worldwide and, for some fans, a trip to Las Vegas isn’t complete without a visit to Lotus of Siam. Don't be put off by the cheesy, strip-mall location; the real treasure is on the plate.

7. Hugo's Cellar

Hugo's Cellar
Hugo’s is one of the “Old Vegas” classics that refuses to compromise its traditional-styled French cuisine for the new designer style chef-du-jour, flash-in-the-pan. And why should they? Their reputation for excellence extends from coast to coast and there are plenty of rave reviews proclaiming this as one of the best “Old Vegas” landmarks. Located below the Four Queen’s Hotel in downtown Las Vegas, Hugo’s Cellar has been voted by the locals as the “Best Gourmet Room” for five years in a row. The cuisine is classic French, but you’ll still find some of the best surf and turf in town. And if you’re in the mood, the Cellars “Champion Chateaubriand and Lobster for Two” is hard to beat.

If you’ve never been to the Palms Hotel, the short jaunt out West Flamingo Road is well worth the trip. The Palms is the playground of the young and the restless or is it the bold and the beautiful? Who knows, but if you run in Hollywood circles, you’ve probably been seen and photographed at the Palms. Now, that’s not to say everything at the Palms is a big façade. Quite the contrary. The Maloof’s have made the Palms one of the true owner-operated hotels in Las Vegas and put their stamp of quality into every detail. Alize at the Palms is unlike any other restaurant in town. Set at the top of the hotel, perfect food combined with a slightly distanced view of Las Vegas makes this restaurant a thoroughly enjoyable experience. And unlike many of the designer-chef restaurants in town, the namesake chef is always on the premises. The cuisine style is primarily French, but you’ll find a great selection of seafood, entrées and desserts sure to satisfy everyone’s taste.

9. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse
A couple of blocks off the Strip on Paradise Road is Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House. This is a great steakhouse born from its roots in Dallas, Texas driven by the desire to serve only the best hand-cut steaks, chops and freshest seafood, including Australian cold-water lobster tails. And the prices won’t break the bank here either. Del Frisco’s uses the freshest ingredients to create mouthwatering appetizers, flavorful side dishes and irresistible desserts. Sommeliers are on hand to guide you through their extensive wine list and their bartenders will lift your spirits with hand-shaken martinis and crafted cocktails. Sometimes you just want a steak or a lobster tail that tastes the way you remember they should, not a cheap imitation. There’s nothing pretentious here to stand between you and a remarkable dining experience.

If nothing else, the Mandalay Bay Hotel has one of the best selections of restaurants on the Strip, and that is not to sell the hotel short. Mandalay Bay excels in every thing they do and Fleur is one of the premier and most sophisticated restaurants on the Strip. From its show-stopping appearance to its San Francisco roots, chef Hubert Keller will create a five-course masterpiece you’ll savor with every bite. But not everything on the menu is the items you can’t pronounce. They’ve got good old-fashioned surf and turf too, but rest assured that when they bring oysters on the half shell, or the Fleur Burger with wagyu beef, fois gras, and truffle, you’ll look twice at the presentation. Fleur is a great dining experience and is sure to put you in a great mood for the rest of your evening. And don’t forget to order the fresh fruit minestrone dessert. Yum!

11. Joe's

Joe's
Located in the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab is one of the most popular restaurants on the strip. Great food and service makes this a perfect and affordable spot for either lunch or dinner. Their signature dish is Stone Crabs. Discovered by the founders in the early 1920s in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, these delicacies are hand-harvested and then flown in where they’re grilled to perfection. Complementing a superior menu of seafood entries, chowders and bisques, Joe’s is no slouch when it comes to Prime Steak, and their Bone-in Signature Steaks are prized for their rich, on-the-bone flavor and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. And what restaurant with roots in the Gulf Coast doesn’t make a Key Lime pie? Whether you opt for the homemade Boston Cream or the Havana Dream pie, your taste buds will thank you.

12. Lawry's The Prime Rib

Lawry's The Prime Rib

The Lawry’s name has been a staple in Los Angeles since 1938 and is as synonymous with the word Prime Rib as "Tiffany" with diamonds, and it would be difficult to pick who’s the best. Lawry’s opened in Las Vegas in 1997 and was a hit the moment the doors opened. You’d think that with $5.99 Prime Rib specials at every gin-joint in town, why pay the high price at Lawry’s? If you drink wine out of a box, this restaurant isn’t for you. Eating at Lawry’s is actually a very simple and straightforward experience. Pick which cut of meat you want and what size; the thin English cut, the regular Lawry’s cut, or the extra-large Diamond Jim Brady and when it arrives at your table - devour. And for total decadence, you can even request the end cut, which is extra crispy and gristly with plenty of fat still on the bone. Yes, they have chicken, pork and fish, and a fabulous selection of salads, but prime rib is the name of the game at Lawry’s.

13. Morton's - The Steakhouse

Morton's - The Steakhouse
Admit it! You're a carnivore! If you pick a charred and crusty rib eye steak dripping with fat before you’ll ever choose a sung-bean salad with lemon juice and a spritz of olive oil, then certainly you are, a passionate one! They say you might be headed for an early heart attack, but if you're at Morton’s Steakhouse devouring one of their signature steaks, you’ll die a happy man. This stand-alone restaurant dedicated to the art of “The Steak” has been a perennial “Best of Las Vegas” award winner year after year. How do they do it? Remains a mystery, but certainly there might be some sort of a secret network that sends the best cuts of beef to a select group of restaurateurs and Morton’s is one of them. Morton’s is also known for their seafood dishes, but the steaks are their main attraction. You can’t go wrong or broke at Morton’s. Go give it a shot.

When you're voted the Chef of the Century, you get carte blanche when it comes to who, what, and where you want to park your truffles, and chef Joel Robuchon has so much to offer, the MGM Grand built him 2 restaurants. The main restaurant is called Joel Rubouchon and if the prices don’t transport you to a new world, the food certainly will. It’s been proclaimed the best French food in America and he’s received so many rating stars, he’s got his own galaxy. Perfect food, perfect combinations, and perfect presentation. For a dining experience you’ll never forget, make your reservation now. In some circles, his second restaurant L’Atelier is considered even better that the main establishment. What a dilemma. Do you go for perfection or more perfection. The choice is yours. A little less expensive and a little more casual, the cuisine at L’Atelier is equally as delicious and equally as attractive, but everything is scaled down a notch.
