I like Terra Verde (italian) at Green Valley ranch, Delmonico's(Steak) at venetian is good for meat eaters, olives(italian) at bellagio if you get outside seating you see the fountains. the thai place at the wynn is ok, it used to be a lot better, its called red 8.

Green Valley Ranch Resort, Las Vegas : Dining : Terra Verde
Red 8 Asian Bistro in the Wynn Las Vegas - Red 8 Las Vegas - Chinese food in Las Vegas

emerils.com | Restaurants : Delmonico Steakhouse

magianos Maggiano's Little Italy | Italian-American Dining at fashion island is also good italian, and there is a steak place above that that is also excellent i can't remember what its called, Jack goes there.

lotus of siam, thai is probably the best thai food between LA and NY.
Lotus of Siam - Las Vegas

new york new york has some good places to eat as well that are cheap and cheerful, i like the chain italian in there, and they have a chin chins as well.

The restaurant in the eiffel tower at the paris is really good, but expensive and its hard to get seating, unless you eat at the bar.

It seems that I like most of the places I have eaten in Vegas- the competition is great for us!

I am a steak kind of guy so keep that in mind. I travel to Las Vegas for work often and I would say my favorite spots in Vegas are:

N9NE Steakhouse in The Palms:
N9NE GROUP

The Ballagio Buffet- it covers everything and the food is great!

If you're near New York, New York, I've had really good experiences at Gallaghers- again steak.

For a Saturday brunch- Planet Hollywood is great but get there early because the line gets long.

I posted this on another thread, but it may have some value for you.

See the mall at Caesars (talking statue shows for free), Pirate show for free at Treasure Island, Volcano Show for free at Mirage. The mall at Planet Hollywood is worth seeing. Water show at Bellagio and an Art Museum. Free Circus acts at Circus, Circus. Marine exhibit at Mandalay. Free show in the sky at night downtown. Cheap shrimp coctails and drinks down there. Best expensive buffets, Bellagio, Paris, Seafood at the RIO plus free Mardi Gras show at night. Best CHeap buffet, any coast casino except the Barbary Coast. Margaritaville in the Flamingo, go to the second or third level on an off hour and get a table overlooking the strip, reasonable prices great view, and something for the kids. If you like seafood, if you want something unique, different and reasonable, the seafood bar at the Palace Station. Pan Roasts, Ciopino's, Bolubaise (you go find the spelling) they make the stuff right in front of you. HOW GOOD? 5 other casinos copied them. Long wait at times, no reservations, counter seating only, waitress service inside $2 more per meal and you don't get the Chef show. DOn't want to wait, want a table, same thing at South Point, or Sun Coast. 5 miles south of the strip is the Silverton hotel (blue diamond road) with a Bass Outdoors outlet. If you've never been in one go, it's an outdoor store on major big league steroids. In the Queens hotel downtown is Hugo's Cellar, old school red chairs steak and seafood house, it was the Rat Pack hangout, the most famous restaurant in Las Vegas in the 50's and 60's. Haven't been there in years but it's really nostalgic. Also Batista's Hole in the wall behind the Barbary Coast same deal Nostalga to the hilt. Check Chowhound.com and yelp.com for current revues of restaurants. Oh also west on Charleston the Red Rock Hotel and Casino, I think it's the hottest looking place inside. NYNY is neat inside also plus the roller coaster, and dueling piano's IF YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE, CHECK OUT THE DUELING PIANOS, GET THERE AT 8PM FOR A SEAT OR STAND WITH EVERYONE ELSE AT 9. DO NOT MISS THIS, DO NOT MISS THIS, DO NOT MISS THIS. You get the idea?

If you want hokey to the max go all the way west on Charleston to Bonnie SPrings, really hokey dumb cowboy show, cheesey Zoo, horse back rides into the canyons and a weird place to have a cocktail or beer. Also Red Rock Canyon is out there, small fee, state park, neat rock formations, very interesting if your into that stuff. Take the Dam tour, and if you do that you can go to Laughlin (8 or so more casinos on the river )another hour further you can rent boats and waverunners if you are inclined and beach at the Avi hotel down south 5 miles further. Also Valley of Fire State Park about a 63 minute ride away. And of course a couple hrs to Death Valley, (I'm dying to go there myself).

Shows, pay the money see the Blue Man Group, I've seen it twice and going back for a third time, if someone recommends "Love" see the Blue man group instead. The Comedy show at the RIviera is cheap and you usually get two great comics and one fair one. The Show at the Trop is the oldest on the Strip and is old style Las Vegas T&A tastefully done( well as tasteful as one can be, my friend was a stage manager there and says they rub eachothers nipples with ice right before they go on and talk about how well their kid is doing in school).

Take a ride to the Ritz Carlton in Lake Las Vegas, they made a little Italian town with shops and theres one Italian restaurant down near the lake that is great and reasonable.

Okay that should take care of the first day.

Bellagio has a great buffet, if that's convenient for you. To me, a buffet never seems to be as good as a la carte dining.

Waaaay off the strip and from the noise is a bitchin' Thai restaurant; Kung Fu. look it up. very good and not a ripoff.

Like Indian? want a great meal at a good price? go to Ghandi at paradise and flamingo

in the Mirage, Japoniais. a fru-fru asian fusion restaurant that's quite good; It's typical Vegas pricey casino restaurant, good food, interesting menu, good service (better be!). the Mirage buffet sucks compared to Bellagio's.

go see Beatles Love at the Mirage; you get to take a trip without droppin' acid! highly recommended.

SW Steakhouse in the Wynn is one of the best steak places I've gone to....and I've gone to quite a few across the country.

Nobu, great sushi.

Olives was good. Thought Prime was just OK.

Mesa Grille was better in NY. Il Mulino, while I haven't gone to the one in the Forums shops, the one in NY was amazing!

Pink Taco is a casual mexican place. not great, but always fun to eat the pink taco!

Theres a ton of great places, many I'm forgetting. Try something new, don't fall for the PF Chang/Cheesecake Factories of the strip

hardcore korean

Depends. I really tend to avoid food at casinos and buffets. If by chance you like really good Korean, go to Kimchi Korean BBQ (3049 Las Vegas Blvd) in a strip center across from where the Stardust was. The first time I went there they did not speak English and I do not speak Korean, but the variety of choices and preparation was great. Not too much ambiance though. Been back numerous times, never disappointed.

If you're in the mood for a different dining experience you should try Dick's at the Excalibur. The food is good but the service is horrible, on purpose! The whole idea is that the waiters all act like... dicks. They're rude, they will make a paper hat with some sort of insult on it and then put it on your head. The waiter will come by your table to ask if everything is okay, if you say "yes" their response will be "Thank God!!!", if you say "No" their response will be to the affect of "Well what the hell do you want then!?!?. The attitude sort of caught us off guard but we still had fun, the employees actually encourage you to "return fire".

I recommend it if you are in the mood for such a thing and as mentioned, the food is good.

Can't go wrong with any of these places.

MIX roof top of the HOTEL in Mandalay Bay get an outside patio seat for the best view!!! Expensive

The Eiffel Tower in the Paris Hotel is wonderful and romantic. This one is expensive.

Rum Jungle in Mandalay is great if you like it loud and casual. Moderate

Red Square in Mandalay is also very good and the best Vodka in Vegas! Moderate

The Cat House in the Luxor is worth paying a visit. Hot, erotic, and very cool place to check out the menu and the servers. Moderate

Sunami in the Venitian if you want good sushi.

If at all possible skip all buffets EXCEPT the Bellagio!

While your at it, hop on over to rent-a-vette and rent an Elise or their Lambo to complete the evening. Check out Mystere, O, Ka, and if with a woman see Zumanity. You won't be disappointed with any of the Cirq shows.

If you really want to have a great time. Do the serenity tour --> Limo picks you up at your hotel and takes you to heli-pad where you and your private chopper fly to Lake Las Vegas to take a gondola across the lake to a romantic italian dinner. On the return trip you fly over the strip back to an awaiting limo.

Vegas is fun, BUT NOT CHEAP!

Cheers!

Top of the World is also very good!

Anything in the Bellagio or Caesars you can't go wrong!
