Food & Dining in Las Vegas
 
 
 

Once a vast wasteland of buffets, Las Vegas has come of age in dining and drinking. Added to the list of celebrities are some of the top names in the culinary world. Visitors now have their choice of fine dining experiences, both on and off the strip.

Large casinos will invariably offer a variety of dining options, ranging from the omni-present buffet to simple cafes to gourmet restaurants. Las Vegas restaurants are all smoke-free.

General dining times are 7am-10:30am for breakfast, 11:30am-2:30pm for lunch and 5:30pm-11pm for dinner, with many restaurants extending their hours on weekends. Also, most casinos have a 24-hour grill/coffee shop.

Places to Dine

The Strip

Las Vegas and especially the Strip has quickly become a hotbed of upscale, fine dining establishments, attracting world-class celebrity chefs from all corners of the globe. Famous for his California-style food and original restaurants, Wolfgang Puck has graced the city with several ventures. One of his establishments, Postrio, located inside the Venetian Hotel provides the romantic atmosphere of a genuine bistro, along with private rooms. If you like a fine dining experience with a spectacular view, ascend to the top of the Stratosphere Tower for an evening at the Top of the World Restaurant. There is not a bad seat in the house since the room slowly rotates one complete turn each hour. Bouchon, is world renowned chef Thomas Keller's Vegas venture, offering the very best French bistro cuisine inside the Venetian Resort & Casino. Another celebrity chef who has made himself a home in Las Vegas is Bobby Flay, whose Mesa Grill inside Caesars Palace Hotel Casino brings real southwestern flavour to Sin City. If you're in the mood for something a little more exotic, try Pearl at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino to sample the flavours of the far east. Visiting the Mohave Desert does not preclude enjoying fine seafood. Chef Emeril Lagasse produces award winning lobster, fish and crab delights at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House inside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

If you rather have quantity and quality, there are some great buffets on the Strip. In fact, buffets are less expensive than fine dinning and you can have all-you-can-eat lobster, steak and dessert for one price. Some of the best, though rather expensive, buffets are on the Strip. Le Village Buffet can be found at Paris Las Vegas, where you can sample as much as you can stomach, all from various regions of France. For a more upscale all-you-can-eat experience, it doesn't get much classier than The Buffet at the Bellagio, complete with a champagne brunch on weekends. The Buffet at Wynn also boasts numerous cooking stations, including sushi, risotto and of course, dessert. Cravings, located in the Mirage Hotel is a colourful, contemporary restaurant featuring such international delicacies as gelato and dim sum. The Treasure Island Buffet is a tried and true classic, which also boasts an impressive Sunday brunch buffet. Another brunch hotspot is Sterling Brunch at Bally's Casino Resort. While it is only open for Sunday brunch, and is one of the more pricey buffets, it is well worth the effort and money.

Being one of the entertainment capitals of the world, Las Vegas has no shortage of theme restaurants. Drop in at Planet Hollywood where you'll see authentic movie props and maybe a real star or two. You don't need to travel to the jungles of South America to get a taste of exotic plants and animals, instead you can just pop into the Rainforest Cafe. Le Provencal inside Paris Las Vegas will transport you to a small European village. For something a little more casual, Burger Bar serves up everything burger, right down to the dessert.

Just like the action never stops in Vegas, there's also a lot of restaurants that go round the clock with you, so no matter what the time, you can always find something to satisfy your appetite. Raffles Cafe at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino is a casual, tropical restaurant with a diverse menu to satisfy any craving at any time. At Caesars Palace Hotel Casino the Augustus Caf・also has diverse offerings on the menu, with breakfast being the specialty any time of day or night. Le Cafe Ile St. Louis has all the atmosphere of a Parisian sidewalk cafe, offering French and American specialties, and the Grand Lux Cafe offers over 20 desserts to satiate any late night sweet tooth yearnings. Caf・Bellagio is an upscale coffee shop with gorgeous views any time of day.
