Joes Stone Crab and Prime Steak at Cesars forum shops. They also have the best seafood in town as well.

Most of the top-tier ones, like Prime and SW, get their meat from the same distributor.....the main difference is not the quality of the meat, it's the preparation.

N9NE is getting more fans everyday, Prime is always solid, and SW has, to me, the best Executive Chef for a steakhouse in Vegas. Can't go wrong with any of them.

For a fun meal, at a fraction of the cost, try Mon Ami Gabi at The Paris....Hanger Steak with pomme frittes....great wine by the glass....super "bistro feel"....great service....casual....and a great show (across the street from the Belaggio fountains).

It's the only nice steakhouse I've had in Vegas, but have been to many other high end ones throughout the country.  Definitely the best dining experience I've had.  Porterhouse for 2 was excellent!.

Vegas Gourmet you crack me up  

The steakhouse at circus circus has been voted number 1 many many times. Fix at Bellagio offers a delicious surf and turf with a 1lb maine lobster and a petite filet mignon for only 60 dollars. Gallaghers at NYNY is also good. BOL

Covas.....

Seriously.....the "quality" was the question, not the "value".....

Trust me on this, I'm in the industry and know the distributors...in most cases, I can tell you which state the beef came from.....

The lesser hotels (and you named 2, Circus and NY), cannot match the major hotels and the quality ....Fix serves a level of beef much less than Prime (opened by Jean-Georges)....Gallaghers is decent for the tourist; but overpriced for the quality (just because they hang those steaks in the window, they charge more)...

I have a good friend here that was the Executive Meat Director for Steve Wynn ...opened The Mirage, The Bellagio and The Wynn.....you would be amazed at what you were eating and how much you were paying for that cut of steak if you knew the inside scoop....

Best Steak in town, is the Double Eagle Bone in Prime Strip at Del Frisco's.  It definitely does not have the best atmosphere, but it is the best steak.

If you are choosing between Prime at the Bellagio, and SW at the Wynn, definitely chhose SW, it has the  better atmosphere, and go early to watch the water if you are on a date.  Prime puts me to sleep.

N9ne is always good, and so is Smith and Wolensky.

I also absolutely love Craftsteak at the MGM Grand.  It is tough to beat.  It is owned by Tom Colicchio.  Just get the cucumber slad, the yukon gold potatoes, and the dry aged NY Strip.  Enjoy.

I will agree that Joe's is becoming one of my new favorites also.

I almost forgot about CUT, it is at the Palazzo, and it is very pricey, but it is money.  It is owned by Wolfgang Puck.  We got the American Wagyu "Kobe Style"  Filet, and it was incredible. 

If you are with a fun group, and you want to go to a restaurant with a great atmosphere to get the party started before a night on the town, go to FIX at the Bellagio.

 

Good LUCK!!!

FrontRow...

Props to you........totally forgot Del Frisco....would go there any night for a great steak....

To counter: The reason that I like Prime (in addition to the meat and great sides) is that it is opposite of a steakhouse in atmosphere....Some steakhouses are about "eating" and I find that Prime is about "dining"....And if I'm going to spend $500 for dinner and a nice bottle of Amarone, I'll take dining over eating.

I personally like the Steakhouse at Circus Circus.  Great atmosphere, great steak.  Seems like it would be a dump being in Circus Circus but I would call it one of the hidden gems in Vegas.

Vegasgourmet, why don't you let us in on these secrets you are talking about?

Had dinner tonite at Prime...again....

Dry-aged, bone-in Ribeye.....

The steak, sides, sauces were as good as anywhere in Vegas...still....

BUT>>>>The big difference, IMHO, is that at Prime..you dine; and at most steakhouses...you eat.

Bone in ribeyes are the best.  Find a meat distributor in your area that offers it, and buy those puppies up.  The marrow actually drips into the meat and gives it a devilishly good flavor.  The caveman gene gets excited and a protein rush is experienced.

It's usually easier to buy a case of them from a distributor than to buy from a supermarket.

If you are looking for a true Vegas steak experience you have 2 options : 1. hit up Ellis Island for the 6.95 steak special or 2. (for locals) pick up a ribeye at Larry's Great Western Meats.  The price and quality at LGWM is unmatched anywhere.

Coming this Feb/March and would also like help with a surf and turf sit down for 1.  To give you and idea of what I like, I eat at Ruth's Chris whenever in a city with one. Gibson's in Chicago is outstanding.

I like a 8oz or bigger filet mignon that is like butter, along with a "Maine" (north Atlantic at least) whole lobster or tail or two. Some nice sauteed mushrooms with my steak and well as tender asparagus with hollandaise. I don't care if I have to pay 2-3 bills if it is that good. Help a brother out.  Thanks in advance.

I gotta say that Mon Ami has gone down hill over the last few months. I heard that they changed chef's or management. Seems like the menu and pricing structure. I really like that place too.. French onion soup was one of a kind.

 For cheap meal on the strip I usually hit up first food in Palazzo..
