Loved the Mesa Grill and Raos was the best.

I absolutely LOVED Daniel Boulud. Fantatic food. We were there for a conference and brought some people with me. Others went back the next night (I didn't because I like to try new restaurants). I too like Olives - make a point to have lunch/dinner there each time I'm in Vegas.

Have fun!

Our filet mignon at Eiffel Tower Restaurant was fantastic, like silk! It was a fantastic dinner (chocolate souffle or creme brulee a must to share) with a beautiful view.

Our lunch at Mesa Grill was a disappointment. Daniel Boulud's is on our list for next trip.

Jeez Poison,

please, please please go to Picassos at Bellagio instead Joel Rubichons at MGM. I feel awful, because I know there is no way my words will convince you, but I went to both during the same weekend. Not only was Picassos half the price $200. vs $400. (for one person!!! With ONE glass of wine!!!), it was WAY better in Every respect. Each of the nine courses tasted better; the restaurant was much prettier and the service was better.And where else can you dine with original Picasso paintings all around you? Joel Rubichons is just a square non-descript room where a dozen purple chiffon-clad waiters take turns rapidly serving you up to 16 small dishes in a row. The serving style is a gimmick - but i found it nerve racking and didnt like it at all. (Over $400. wasted!) I understand if you cant take my word for it, but please research it further. Picassos is the same type of menu but much more enjoyable. I also travel alone and just don't want you to make the same mistake I did. One more thing about Rubichons, when you eat alone, you kind of want some attention from your server (depending on your mood), and you don't get ANY at Rubichons, because of their serving-gimmick.

Thank you for all the suggestions.

After looking at the online menu and the good things written here, we opted for Daniel Boulud's Brasserie. It has BEEF so DH should be happy and just enough other yummy sounding stuff to keep me quite happy.

Of course, I will do breakfast at Bouchon again. I have fond memories of breakfast from my last trip.

POlson, ask for terrace seating so you can see the show during dinner too. You'll love dinner there!
