Hello beautiful bees,
Our vow renewal plans in vegas are all coming together wonderfully. We are renewing our vows at the pop up chapel at the Cosmopolitan a few days before our 3rd wedding anniversary (they are shut on our acrtaul anniversary – boo!) and we are looking for a recommendation for where we should go to dinner afterwards.
It will just be us and this will be the “fanciest” dinner of our vacation. We aren’t set on a type of cuisine, we just want an amazing dining experience!
Any suggestions? (and any other noteable mentions that we should visit while we are there?)

You can look at Tripadvisor.com, so that you can see honest reviews on restos.
TripAdvisor has never steered me wrong.

I never went for dinner, but I would give my right leg to go back to Mon Ami Gabi at Paris. Sometimes you ahve to wait for a good table but it looks straight out onto the Bellagio fountain. It was stunning during the day… I can imagine it’s even more magical at night. The food was amazing and the location was one of my favourite memories of Vegas.

@dannielle89: I second the Mon Ami Gabi at Paris!! It is the perfect setting for a romantic, two person, memorable experience. Be sure to share a picture of the beautiful fountains sprays behind you and your beloved if you do choose that one. Best wishes on your vow renewal and 3 yr. anniversary.

@Tyme4AWedNN2014: I third this recomendation. The food is amazing and ask to sit outside on the patio you look right at the bellagio fountains. Such a great place!

I am on a 4 days vacation in Vegas with FI right now and planning to try out different restaurants. I will update you with the places I go during this trip… So far I am very excited to try out Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant… I heard it’s wonderful despite all the TV hype. 🙂

Craftsteak in MGM-Grand is one of the best steakhouses in Vegas. Outstanding service and fantastic food, great atmosphere, but you may want to check the Las Vegas Convention schedule online to make sure there’s no conference/convention at MGM before planning your visit; it can be difficult to get a reservation when conventions are staying there, and can be quite noisy if you do manage to get a table.
Gallaher’s in NYNY is also a top-notch steakhouse, not quite as pricey as Craftsteak, and equally wonderful service. Some may prefer the atmosphere her a bit more, as it’s still upscale and elegant like Craftsteak but not quite as formal.
Samba in The Mirage if you want Churrasceria (Brazilian steakhouse). This is a bit more casual, although not truly casual, and a bit less expensive. Great cocktails too, and I love the style of service, with waiters stopping by tables with skewers of roasted meat for you to take as much as you please.
More casual, the Oyster Bar at Harrah’s is one of those hidden gems!

I fourth the Mon Ami Gabi suggestion! Also, if you’re an adrenaline junkie like I am, you’ve got to hit the Stratosphere, New York New York and Circus Circus for the rollercoasters and rides!

I really liked Mesa Grill tho it didnt have the ambiance youd probably want. You really cant go wrong with a Bellagio Restaurant right on the fountains (Picasso, Le Cirque).

Joel Robuchon at MGM is insaaaaaaaane. And they pick you up in a limo to take you there! It’s only 12 tables (and probably 20 servers) and it’s just rediculous French food.
I also hear great things about Picasso, especially if you like original Picassos and the view of the Bellagio fountains, though I’ve heard that it’s even more expensive than Joel Robuchon (in the $400 per person range, whereas JR is more like $250 per person).
