Las Vegas' 10 Best Restaurants For an Unforgettably Delicious Meal

Many of Las Vegas’ best restaurants are French, but you’ll also find plenty of other cuisines. Las Vegas attracts chefs and food lovers from all over the world, and the constantly expanding food scene in town is a real bonus for anyone who loves eating out. Many of the best restaurants are on the Strip, but traveling off the Strip can turn up a host of great food experiences.

Quite a few renowned chefs have restaurants in Las Vegas. Joel Robuchon, named for its famous chef, is Las Vegas’ only three star Michelin restaurant. A meal here is a very expensive splurge for some of the finest French food in town. The dining area is beautifully designed, and the opulent atmosphere encourages an appreciation of the cuisine. Formal attire, a quiet speaking voice and an understanding that service will take hours are essential to enjoying an experience here and at other fine dining establishments.

Off the Strip, you’ll find great food in much less formal surroundings. Several local gems have developed reputations that draw both visitors and locals. Echo & Rig, in the Summerlin area, serves delicious steaks in a setting that’s both appealing and casual. The steaks here are as good as anything on the Strip, and while it’s not a cheap meal, you’ll spend less here than on the Strip.

If you’re still wondering where to make a reservation, our list of Las Vegas’ 10 best restaurants will give you some ideas.
