Las Vegas' Fine Dining: 10 Restaurants for the Highest Levels of Cuisine



Las Vegas is filled with an impressive collection of fine restaurants, many along the Strip and several from well-known celebrity chefs. Off the Strip, a thriving community of chefs and culinary pros keep the food scene dynamic. With such a profusion of notable restaurants in Las Vegas, fine dining has become a reason in itself to visit the city.

Many fine dining establishments in Las Vegas are French, not surprising given that cuisine’s influence on gourmet food. For a truly fresh vision of French, plus an amazing view of Las Vegas, try Twist at the Waldorf Astoria (recently rebranded from Mandarin Oriental). Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s food is found nowhere else in the United States.

Fine dining is always expensive, but an evening at Joel Robuchon is an incredible splurge--and an amazing experience. Here, the fine French cuisine is served in an opulent room designed to seat a small number of fortunate diners. The number of awards and accolades heaped upon Joel Robuchon are the result of food that is innovative, creative and sublime.

If you don’t feel like French food, there are certainly other fine dining options in Las Vegas: sushi, New American or Italian, to name a few. Inside the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, for instance, é by Jose Andres takes Spanish food to the next level in an intimate dining experience.
