2. Le Cirque at Bellagio
Le Cirque at the Bellagio Hotel is next on our list, with New French cuisine and a decadent, playful, and celebratory atmosphere. The perfect setting for a romantic anniversary dinner, Le Cirque is well known for its exhaustive wine list, superb cocktails, and one-of-a-kind dessert offerings.

The menu is served in multiple courses and makes for an unforgettable dining experience on the Las Vegas Strip.
3. Sinatra Las Vegas
Sinatra at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas takes you back to the golden days of Las Vegas, where elegance and fine dining ruled the scene. The intimate dining room pays tribute to old blue eyes himself, with portraits of the classic icon being hung about. The menu features sophisticated Italian food that customers rave about. Among the favorites are pasta dishes, like Frank’s Spaghetti and Clams which are served in a brothy garlic tomato sauce, and the Cappellacci, which features braised Wagyu short rib in a red wine reduction. Sinatra is considered by many to be one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. Entrees range in price from about $35 to $85.
4. Wing Lei
Wing Lei, located at the Wynn, is one of the most prestigious restaurants in Las Vegas. It has earned the honor of being the first Chinese restaurant in North America to earn a Michelin Star and is also a Forbes Five Star Award winner. The cuisine is designed by culinary mastermind Chef Ming Yu and is showcased in both a traditional dinner menu and a Chef’s Tasting Menu.
Guests can’t stop talking about the delectable, upscale Chinese cuisine that features Cantonese, Szechuan, and Shanghai influences. The Fried Prawns with Candied Walnuts is a favorite, along with the Garlic Beef Tenderloin with Black Pepper Sauce. There is a wide range of price points on the menu. Dishes like fried rice cost a little over $20, but entrees that feature seafood and beef can cost well over $70.

SW Steakhouse at Wynn Las Vegas is one of the best restaurants for steak lovers in Sin City. At the hands of Chef Mark Russo, a menu has emerged that will leave your mouth watering. The premium steaks are the star of the show, with rave reviews highlighting the finest cuts, like the Japanese Wagyu Ribeye and the Dry Aged New York Strip. Add accompaniments to your steak, like Burgundy Black Truffle Butter, a Rogue Creamery Smoked Blue Cheese Crust, or Maine Lobster with Citrus Herb Butter for an extra dose of decadence.
Other fantastic dishes are on the menu to make this one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. We’re especially fond of the Pan Roasted Sea Scallops, Rosemary Roasted Jidori Chicken, and Faroe Island Salmon with a Dijon Walnut Crust. Plan on spending upwards of $75 for a steak at SW Steakhouse, with other entrees averaging about $60.
6. Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab
Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab make it on our list, offering private dining rooms and a casual, upscale atmosphere. While Joe’s Seafood is considered one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas and a local favorite, it started with humble beginnings long ago. In 1913, legendary chef Jeffrey Weiss and his wife first opened the restaurant in their own home, with their patio serving as the main dining room. We can just imagine what impeccable service that would have been!
Joe’s has the best fresh seafood selection around. The world-famous Stone Crab Claws are flown in from Florida each day, and the hand-carved Bone-In Rib Eye, or Filet Mignon, is sure to make any steak lover’s mouth water. Other dishes loved by reviewers the Crab Bisque Soup, King Crab, Grilled Octopus, Chilean Sea Bass, and Filet with Lobster Tail. The scrumptious desserts are also not to be missed. Plan on spending at least $70 per person for dinner at Joe’s.

This is one of only a handful of Michelin Star award-winning restaurants in Las Vegas, and the restaurant has received other prestigious accolades, including the Forbes Five Star Award and AAA Five Diamond Award.
Exquisite dining just doesn’t get any better than what you’ll find at this MGM Resorts restaurant. The menu changes seasonally, but in the past, guests who left reviews have raved about the Le Caviar Imperial, Truffled Langoustine Ravioli, and John Dory Fish Fillet. Desserts like the Coconut Mousse with Lemon Cream and the Mango and Passion Fruit Sorbet are also big hits with reviewers. Joel Robuchon’s is an upscale dining experience, and reservations and proper dress are required.
8. Esther’s Kitchen
So far, the best restaurants in Las Vegas on our list have been upscale dining on the Las Vegas Strip, or at least close to it. Here, we take a bit of a detour to Downtown Las Vegas, where we find Esther’s Kitchen nestled in the Arts District. Esther’s Kitchen specializes in great Italian food, but its menu is nicely diverse.
They serve lunch and dinner, plus weekend brunch. Favorites on the menu include handmade pasta dishes, like simple and classic old-school spaghetti, and new-school pasta variations, including Butternut Squash Tortellini. Make sure you save room for dessert. Guests can’t stop talking about the Chocolate Crepe Cake and the Lemon Thyme Panna Cotta. Most entrees are in the $20-$30.
9. Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres
Bazaar Meat, by James Beard Award Winner, Jose Andres, is one of the most memorable Las Vegas restaurants. The dining room is inviting and warm, which perfectly suits the shared plates philosophy behind Bazaar Meat (you don’t have to share if you don’t want to!). The menu is divided into sections, such as the Raw Bar, which doubles as a sushi bar, and the Meat Bar, where hungry guests enjoy small plates, including tartare and carpaccio.
You can order steak from the firepit, which is priced by the pound. One of the most highly reviewed dishes from this restaurant is the Wagyu Beef Wellington (are they giving Gordon Ramsay’s beef wellington a run for its money?) This Las Vegas location is the perfect place for an intimate dinner with friends. Don’t forget to enjoy a couple of perfectly prepared classic cocktails along with your meal. Prices vary by market value on some items, but you should plan on spending upwards of $60 per person. Find this favorite restaurant in the Sahara Las Vegas.

The Peppermill Restaurant & Fireside lounge isn’t just one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. It’s also one of the most famous. This restaurant has been open since the 1970s and has served as a backdrop in numerous movies. The Peppermill Restaurant is open for breakfast and stays open late for dinner. The lounge is open 24 hours.
Those who have reviewed this restaurant love the classic dishes, like mountains of pancakes and French Toast. There are so many delicious omelets on the menu, and a good chance a few you’ve never heard of. The menu is huge, with bar food-style appetizers, sandwiches, salads, entrees, and steaks. If you’re looking for a cure for too much Vegas the night before, try one of their enormous cocktails, like the 64-ounce Scorpion!
11. Honey Salt
Honey Salt is one of the most loved and best restaurants in Las Vegas for families or anyone wanting to enjoy great-tasting, classic dishes without the crazy buzz of the Las Vegas Strip in the background. Located a few miles outside of Sumerlin, the reviews let us know that this restaurant won’t let you down.
You really don’t have to move too far past the appetizer menu to understand why everyone loves this Las Vegas restaurant.

Located at the MGM Resorts property of the Bellagio, the Mayfair Supper Club is a dining experience like none other in Las Vegas. The atmosphere is such a blend of classic Las Vegas and modern flair that it’s almost surreal. Performances are as much a part of the experience as the delicious food.

When it’s time to step off the casino floor at the Wynn Las Vegas and indulge your desire for upscale Japanese cuisine, Mizumi is as well known for the atmosphere as they are for its exquisitely prepared dishes. The setting at Mizumi is serene, offering a backdrop of beautiful Japanese gardens.
The Teppan Menu is a favorite, with delicacies like Kobe Beef and live Maine Lobster. For the more adventurous, the Ginkgo Nuts with key lime and spice are amazing, as is the Yellowtail Carpaccio. Mizumi is a fine dining restaurant with an average plate price to match.
20. Edo Gastro Tapas & Wine
Chef Oscar Amador Edo brings a taste of Spanish Tapas to Las Vegas. We give this place one of our votes for best restaurants in Las Vegas because we absolutely drool over the pictures that guests have included in their reviews. This is a place where you can gather with friends, share a few cocktails, and indulge yourself with intensely flavored small plates that will leave you satisfied on every level.
The Tapas Menu is great and includes an amazing variety of both hot and cold appetizers. We really like that the options on the menu range from sophisticated (an Iberico Charcuterie Board, anyone?) to tasty nibbles you might find at an amazing food truck. The small plates are all very reasonably priced, but be prepared to want to try many of them. Between having so many choices and great cocktails, your bill can add up quickly.
21. Sparrow + Wolf
Sparrow + Wolf is a revolutionary dining experience that you can find on Spring Mountain Road, just on the outskirts of Chinatown Las Vegas. There’s more than one Chinatown restaurant that we love, but Sparrow + Wolf is more American cuisine with an international flair.
Based on reviews, we suggest starting with the Japanese Sweet Potato with Chinese Sausage and Scallion or the Oxtail Hummus. The way to go here is with the chef’s tasting menu that highlights the very best parts of the menu. The tasting menu is $135 per person.
22. Amalfi by Bobby Flay
Las Vegas is a culinary playground for celebrity chefs that want to experiment with bold cuisine. Amalfi by celebrity chef Bobby Flay is located right off the casino floor at Caesar’s Palace and highlights Bobby Flay’s take on Mediterranean cuisine.
The menu is simplified elegance, with highly reviewed dishes like Squid Ink Fettuccini, Gnocchi Al Forno, and Roasted Prawns making this a contender among the best restaurants in Las Vegas. Most entrees cost $30-$40.
Best Japanese Fried Chicken
Ok, so this one might be a bit unexpected, but this is one of our personal favorites that also gets great reviews, so we had to mention it. Other Mama, which is a seafood restaurant/raw bar in Las Vegas, serves some of the most tender, juiciest, and tastiest Japanese fried chicken that we’ve ever had. We also really love the Kimchi Fried Rice, which also seems to be a fan favorite. Find Other Mama located on Durango Dr in Las Vegas.
Most Loved Dessert
A Las Vegas restaurant in the Wynn called Delilah has received wonderful reviews, but there’s one menu item that their guests seem to rave about the most, and it’s not one of their tender steaks or delicious entrees. Instead, it’s something from their dessert menu called Strawberry Shortcake Baked Alaska.
The presentation is amazing, and although you want to dig your fork in, it’s almost too pretty to eat. You’ll get past this, and each bite will have your eyes fluttering. This dessert isn’t currently on the dessert menu at Delilah, but we haven’t heard that they’ve discontinued it. Even if this one isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other delicious desserts to indulge your sweet tooth. Think along the lines of Banana Pudding Creme Brulee, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and Kendall’s Slutty Brownie with all sorts of ooey, gooey layers.
Based on tens of thousands of reviews, these are the most popular restaurants in Las Vegas. As you can see, Las Vegas has a lot to offer when it comes to unforgettable dining experiences. Now that you’re armed with a list of the best restaurants in the city, the only question is, which one will you choose?
