My friend was just looking into this and here are some options she came up with:

Canaletto in the Venetian: http://www.ilfornaio.com/?page=138&type=banquets&restaurant_id=3164.  It fits 80 people and is $55 per person. There are lunch options that are cheaper, so I’m sure you can negotiate it within your budget (asking for one less course or something).

Maggiano’s: http://www.maggianos.com/EN/Las-Vegas_Las-Vegas_NV/pages/locationevents.aspx. Again slightly above your budget, but might be workable.

Nine Fine Irishman in NYNY: http://www.ninefineirishmen.com/sales.aspx

Buca di peppo:http://www.bucadibeppo.com/restaurants/nv/las-vegas-paradise/banquets/

Just a disclaimer: I haven’t been to any of these places in Las Vegas. I’m just passing on my friend’s list. 🙂

Hey there! 

 

We’re in the same boat as you… trying to figure out an affordable reception for our wedding in spring of 2014. I know the Platinum Hotel has an all inclusive package that seems somewhat affordable if you do appetizers/cocktail reception. Firefly Tapas is also another option, but I htink the receptions there are only 2 hours long and it’s a bit off the strip. 

I’ll share more as I find it and please keep me posted too! we’re going to have around 60 people and are thinking of Caeser’s for the ceremony but still trying to figure out a reception. 

Just an FYI- I went to a wedding that had a reception at Maggiano’s in Vegas and it was great. 

 

hope to stay in touch!!

I know you’re having a lot more people then my FI and I are planning on having at our reception, but anyone expecting about 25ish people may be interested…

We are getting married Dec 2014 at the Bellagio and were planning on booking some sort of steak bar restaurant for our reception, one of my FI’s co-workers is getting married in Vegas July 2013 and is paying $140 per person at a steak bar, and they have an open bar for 2 hours. 

After hearing this, I started to think that I don’t want my guests to feel rushed in any way, for anything. I read somewhere (I think trip advisor) that someone had a Vegas wedding and rather then booking a restaurant they booked one of the pent house suites at their hotel, and all their guests went there for the reception after the wedding, and the hotel catered the meal..

This is now what we are planning on doing. I spoke to our coordinator at the Bellagio and she said the catering staff sets up everything and cleans up everything at the end of the meal. I think this just gives guests a more intimate feeling; they can come and go as they please and there is no “time constraints”  

Ahh! Just taking about this is making me so excited!

Maggiano’s has a great room and they could work around your budget.

I’m sure plenty of hotels can host a catered private event in their convention space, the walls move so the room can be practically any size. That might be easier than a restaurant and pricing is online.

Another suggestion on restaurants hosting is that a lot of times with a group that big they may request (or approviate) you cutting down the menu. You can choose certain items you like that are amazing, appeal to your specific guests, and are in your budget. I took off certain food items I knew most people didn’t eat, and the most expensive items on the menu. The chef appreciated knowing there would be fewer items people would be ordering and I like being able to keep my cost a little lower. Your guests will never know there was say a 24 oz filet they missed out on
