Restaurants in Las Vegas
Like everything else in Las Vegas, restaurants here embrace extremes - you'll find everything from retro coffee shops to celebrity-chef eateries to those only-in-Vegas buffets. If you're less adventurous, or just on a budget, you can always find reliable chains and food courts. Here are some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas:
L'Atelier du Joel Robuchon: For a classic celebrity chef outlet, check out this Las Vegas restaurant in the MGM Grand, and which sits next to Robuchon's original namesake restaurant. L'Atelier lets you take the slightly more budget track, though, by way of small plates of foie gras-stuffed quail or langoustine fritters.
The Wicked Spoon: For a modern take on the classic buffet, visit this acclaimed buffet at The Cosmopolitan, where you can enjoy good tomato-and-asparagus risotto, Korean barbecue or the popular (and spicy) Angry Mac 'n' Cheese.
The Peppermill: If this 24-hour coffee shop and lounge near the Wynn exudes a serious Rat Park vibe, it came by it honestly - Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis actually ate here. This Las vegas eatery is great for late-night steak and eggs.
Helmed by France’s “Chef of the Century” Joël Robuchon, L’Atelier is the more relaxed and slightly less expensive sister of neighboring namesake restaurant Joël Robuchon.
Of the six whacked-out burgers on offer, the highlight is an homage to the Vietnamese banh mi, blending beef, pork, shrimp, and pork pâté with pickled carrots and daikon. Fresh lemongrass, mint, and basil add brightness, while fish sauce supplies depth. It is intensely satisfying.
An offshoot of the LA original, this well-loved eatery, located inside Planet Hollywood, serves up all-beef hot dogs with loads of fresh toppings.
Gigantic aquariums holding hundreds of goldfish mark the entrance to Caesars Palace's casual outpost of Northern Chinese-style cuisine. Soup dumplings, dim sum, and noodle dishes featuring house-made, hand-pulled, noodles are served surprisingly quickly.
Original paintings and ceramics by the restaurant’s eponym brighten this Bellagio dining room, which is also adorned with vibrant flowers, colorful upholstered chairs, and large windows overlooking the hotel's famous fountain show.

Sure, Tom Colicchio was running restaurants before anyone heard of reality TV, but he has taken to the medium and become everyone’s favorite judge.
During the evening, glowing columns and huge suspended lamps provide light for the square wooden tables with black chairs and booths in Sushi Roku’s dining room. Daytime, however, brings shining rays through the huge wall of glass windows that also display great views of the strip.
Descend a grand, winding escalator to this classic American steakhouse, where velvet ropes and burly security guards keep gawkers at bay and make those with reservations feel even more special.
Located in Treasure Island Las Vegas, Isla is known for its affordable gourmet Mexican cuisine and extensive bar featuring more than 100 varieties of tequila.
