    1. there are so many good places to eat but my favourites are mon ami gabi in the paris hotel - good french bistro - not too fancy not too expensive
      mesa - more expensive but delish and my husband loves it too
      i also love nobu in the hard rock - i found it very reasonably priced and more fun than nobu in new york

      we are planning a trip in a couple of months and so far we planning to try b&b in the venetian and bouchon - also in the venetian
      then maybe stripsteak or craftsteak

      1. Gotta love people that tell you things are discussed already, but have the time to disgruntingly tell you about it... anyway:

        Mesa Grill (Caesars) is among my favorites - this is surely a "star" resto but it really is great food that is unique
        Burger Bar (Mandalay Bay) - laid back and one of the places that you really cant miss out on. Burgers are off the hook and tremendous selection on tap- great to catch games
        Sensi (Bellagio Spa Tower)- Probably my favorite restaurant west of Chicago. Never anything but tremendous experience there and the food is the best you will ever find. Eclectic
        In N Out Burger- Can come from East coast and not hit the classic stand by.
        If you have the urge for a buffet, forget the name but the one in Planet Hollywood (used to be Aladdin) is my personal choice.

        Have a great time and if there are specific types of places you may look for, ask away.

          1. Bouchon--where I think I of my top 5 meals of my life.
            ditto Nobu--Which was better than my Nobu experiences here in NYC.

            and i agree with yankeefan--IN N OUT!!!!

            and because you can't do vegas without hitting a buffet--try the wynn for the decor and selection.
