Restaurants in The Strip

A 10,000-gallon, double archway aquarium serves as the entrance to this jungle-themed MGM restaurant, where snakes hang from branches and animatronic elephants peek through the trees beside waterfalls.

Though it serves 4,000 patrons a day, the Bellagio buffet manages to balance quantity and quality. The dining room's high traffic requires constant turnover at the 12 food stations, which range from seafood to pasta.

The P.U.B. menu is a cheesebomb of drunkfood for guys who tuck in their polos and dudes who don't tuck in their dress shirts: BLT sliders; swordfish enchiladas.

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.

Led by renowned chef Michael Mina, this marine-inspired MGM Grand restaurant is adorned with an illuminated water wall, vibrant aquarium, and bold red and blue accents. In two open kitchens, Mina’s team prepares fresh fish from around the world as well as a selection of wood-fired steaks.

Stratta's haute Mediterranean cuisine has all the robust earnestness you'd expect, given his Midwestern roots: roast squab, rabbit fricassée, foie gras ravioli in truffle bouillon. And the space, as majestic as a vintage ocean liner, is the perfect setting for his culinary heft.

Situated in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, this sleek steakhouse is designed with brown leather booths, dark wood tables, and stark, twisted tree branches, all illuminated by red box lights.

The first stateside restaurant from chef Pierre Gagnaire. Gagnaire’s cooking is quirky and cerebral, which doesn’t mean it can’t be fun.

A fanciful departure from the usual Vegas buffet (generally characterized by harsh décor and overcooked, institutional food), the Buffet at Wynn, lit overhead by natural light, evokes a garden party.
