The Las Vegas Strip's 10 Best Restaurants for an Unforgettable Meal

Las Vegas has attracted several culinary super-stars and a selection of restaurants that rival cities several times larger. On the Strip, meals at these superb restaurants aren't just a stop for a meal; they're total experiences in beautifully designed spaces and carefully prepared food. Dress up and make reservations well in advance for a meal at one of the Strip’s best restaurants–you’re in for an evening you won’t soon forget.

Since the French virtually created the concept of gourmet dining, the prevalence of French cuisine on the Strip is understandable. Joel Robuchon and Guy Savoy have their only American restaurants in Las Vegas. The Bellagio has attracted a impressive array of world-class restaurants, including several with French cuisine, but they've also given the Mediterranean a nod at Olives. For American-style fare, acclaimed steakhouses Craftsteak and Charlie Palmer Steak offer menus featuring seasonally available produce and carefully sourced meats.

For some of the Strip's most memorable restaurants, their location is as much a part of their appeal as their food. Whether it’s a view of the Bellagio’s Fountains or an up-close chance to enjoy people watching on the Strip, the best Las Vegas restaurants give their guests great food plus a view and ambiance to match.

Find an reason to splurge on a meal at one of these great restaurants on the Strip and you’ll be rewarded with an incredible meal and a lasting memory.
