Distinctive and Delicious: Las Vegas' 10 Best Restaurants for Fine Dining

Las Vegas is filled with an incredible collection of fine restaurants, many from well-known celebrity chefs. Food enthusiasts may have a hard time deciding where to eat, considering the wealth of acclaimed restaurants and chefs in town. Fine dining in Las Vegas has become a reason in itself to visit the city.

French cuisine is well represented among the best Las Vegas restaurants, which is unsurprising given its influence on gourmet food. For a truly fresh vision of French, plus an amazing view of Las Vegas, try Twist at the Mandarin Oriental. Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s food is found nowhere else in the United States, and the ethereally designed dining room seems the perfect setting for such rare dishes.

Fine dining is expensive, but when price is no object at all, make a reservation at Joel Robuchon. Here, the fine French cuisine is served in an opulent room designed to seat a small number of very lucky 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 having French food, there are certainly plenty of other fine dining restaurants. Steakhouses like CUT serve choice cuts of meat and delectable side dishes in beautifully designed spaces, usually with an amazing wine list.
