French cuisine is well-represented in Las Vegas, from elegant restaurants on the Strip to casual eateries in Vegas’ neighborhoods. An indulgent evening at a French restaurant on the Strip can be seriously expensive, but you don’t have to break the bank for wonderful French food--although if you are going to splurge on anything away from the casino, why not make it a great meal?
Most French restaurants on the Strip are full of artfully designed interiors and Parisian-inspired decor. The eye-catching BARDOT Brasserie offers diners an Instagram-worthy interior and a selection of dishes that they’ve put their own twist on, like the escargot in puff pastry with Chartreuse-garlic butter.
The Strip is home to a host of fine French restaurants, but a short drive off the Strip will turn up great restaurants with a more casual atmosphere and less expensive prices. The quality you’ll find at many local neighborhood restaurants is as good as you’ll find on the Strip. At La Maison de Maggie, for instance, the flour and several other ingredients are imported from France for the crepes and galettes.
Whether you're hungry for classic French bistro food or a lavish degustation, here's a look at some of Las Vegas’ best French restaurants. Bon appétit!
