Good restaurants in Las Vegas

Hi all
Thanks to all who helped me out concerning upgrading at hotels in Vagas. Just a couple of other questions. Looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate 25th wedding anniversary while in Vegas, was thinking of the one at the top of the stratosphere, not to sure of the name. Also, how far in advance do you suggest making a booking for the chosen restaurant.

Thanks in advance for all advise received.

Regards

Trevor

Depends on your price preference. For a romamtic anniversary there are plenty of choices -- among them Valentino at The Venetian -- it is very Hollywood 1930s blonde-wood retro with excellent cuisine -- you can reserve it on opentable.com and say it is your anniversary and that you'd like to be in the back room.

a friend just told me she had a fantastic meal at Emeril's in the MGM, one of "the best meals of her life!"

We had dinner at the Eiffel Tower restaurant- with a great view of the fountains of Bellagio. The food and service were excellent. Also ate at Emeril's that trip- and was disappointed. It felt like a chain and the food wasn't anything exciting.

We changed our reservation for dinner at MGM from Emeril's to Nobhill, mainly b/c Emeril's decor did look chain-y, and it reeked, just reeked, of Old Bay! Maybe the food is good, I'll never know, but it didn't have anniversary dinner atmosphere. (Rumor has it Emeril's is due to be closed for renovation.)Nobhill, on the other hand, does, and the food and service are excellent--I highly recommend it. Good luck!

Emeril's was closed for renovation when I was there in May this year. And, judging from my observations when I was there in July 2003, it's got a lot that needs fixing. Maybe frankie's friend ate at the new improved version.

Wow--if the Emeril's I saw last month has already been renovated, they didn't do a great job.

Well, I repeat, I didn't actually eat there, so perhaps I shouldn't be so critical--I'm glad your friend enjoyed it!

Last week one night we were wandering the restaurants in MGM. We were sort of tempted by Pearl, the new Japanese place whose name I forget, and Craftsteak in particular, but the smells from Emeril's got to us. Also we were pleased when we looked at the menu which indicated about half the price of the meals at the other two. We actually ate at the bar with the best service imaginable by two really pleasant server/bartenders.
The food was absolutely wonderful. Had a gumbo of the day which couldn't have been more perfectly seasoned and flavorable. In fact I had just taken a bite when the waiter offered a grinding of pepper, and I said I wouldn't change a single thing and declined. I had a seared tuna on a "compote" of white beans, tasso, and other great things that was simply extraordinary in the combination of flavors. It really was a great meal. Although my partner wasn't so thrilled with his peanut butter/chocolate bread pudding with carmel sauce -- simply too rich to enjoy, he thought. On the other hand, the server had suggested the regular bread pudding might be better, but he was determined to have that peanut butter-chocolate combination.
