I am getting married in the Paris Las Vegas wedding chapel. It will be a small ceremony and there will be 11 adults and 1 child total. I really wanted to have the dinner at the Gordon Ramsay Steak in the Paris casino after the ceremony and pictures. However, to dine in the private rooms, there is a $2,800 minimum and a set menu. As we only have 11 people, we will never spend that much and everyone prefers different food. I was told that there is no problem making a reservation for 12 in the dining room, but after reading some reviews, I have some concerns that it could be cramped and noisy. Does anyone have any experience dining in the main dining room? Would there be enough room to comfortably dine? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

@jlove18: DH and I went not too long ago, and it was noisy. Too noisy for me to suggest you going for a special dinner, especially if you go during the ULTRA HIGH volume times. Sorry I don’t have better news for you. 🙁 Excellent food though!

I’ve eaten there. Very Loud. I couldn’t hear the people at my table for 4 so I can’t imagine a table of 11.
I’m also a vegas bride. I found of reception venue by fusing opentable.com. They have a feature for group/private dining which outlines what restaurants have private spaces and often what the requirements are for that space (minnimim/ sur change).
It is further away but have you thought about CarneVino? Excellent food and much quieter dining room.

I’ve eaten there. Honestly, some of the best food I’ve ever had. Every single item that we had was incredible. Also, the service was absolutely impeccable. If you can manage to get a table in the upstairs seating area you may be better off. It is not as loud and cramped up there. I was there with 6 other people and it was comfortable and we were not bothered by noise. Downstairs is where it gets really loud.
I would talk to them about seating upstairs. It wasn’t a private room so I think if you request that area when talking with them, they should be able to make it work.
I know you stated that you aren’t especially happy with the set menu for the private rooms but I think with 12 people it would be relatively easy to hit $2800. I believe our tab was around $600-$700 and that was with very limited drinking (3 glasses of wine and 3-4 beers total). If your guests plan on having a few drinks each, super easy to hit that minimum!

I have also eaten there and it is too loud for a wedding dinner IMO.
Maybe look for another restaurant. We went the restaurant route for our reception too and it was great!

@jlove18: I’m getting married at Paris as well and we are doing Mon Ami Gabi 2,000 min seats up to 30 but we are prob having 15. Set menu etc… A little cheaper… but they have lunch, brunch and dining room options too. I wanted to keep with Parisian theme. Good luck!

I went in July, and we loved it! I am a personal chef and it was still some of te best food I’ve ever had, also, I went in there planning not to like it because I usually am underwhelmed by “celebrity” chef restaurants. This one lives up to the hype.
I would say be prepared to spend at least $140 a person, for three courses a person and side items, we spend more than that. Also, wine is expensive here so if you are planning on that, I’d say you would get close to $2800. May be worth the extra cash to have a quiet room.
I second Soon2BeBee that the upstairs dining was very quiet. Where we were was a room that could be closed off, but it didn’t seem like they would offer it as “private dining”. By that I mean the room was not worth $2800 even with food. But, I would ask about it, there was plenty of room to seat 12.
The thing about any restaurant that is making arrangements for a large group is that they may not be willing to make many special arrangements when they already offer a private dining room. The upstairs room would be great in theory, but in order to fit a long table of twelve, they would have to remove tables that could seat other guests. I would say they could seat 20-25 in that room, so they would lose 50% of their proift for that room by seating a large table. Of course, they aren’t going to be interested in that because they can fill that room on any day of the week. This may also be the case in the main dining room, but I’m not sure. You did say they were willing to seat you there.
I think it will be a wonderful dinner. If you want a quiet dinner, rent the room.
