wedding restaurant (Las Vegas)

OK, OK, I know you've heard it 100 times, but I need to find a good wedding reception restaurant. I'm thinking 35 people, preferably less than $75 a head. I have done my research. For off strip restaurants it seems like Rosemary's and Tillerman's get brought up, and Mon Ami Gabi gets brought up for inexpensive but classy strip food. Anything I'm missing? I really hate chains, so please don't mention those. Not that you would on chowhounds! That's why I like you. :)

FYI, most of my guests have never visited Vegas and would probably love a restaurant on the strip. I'm a foodie though, so I'll override this for great food at a good price. Also, I'm not a huge French food fan, but I can do it if I have to. Everything else is great.

Thanks!

    Odd question (and late thread resurrection), but is there a place that does a dessert buffet? Instead of a meal? That might be fun...

      I had my wedding reception dinner at Onda at the Mirage and it was wonderful....good Italian food, pleanty of variety, we had our own private corne of the restaurant. They cut our cake and gave us glasses as keepsakes and a $100 Gift Card to use on our anniversary.

        We had my sister's wedding dinner at DB last Saturday and it was excellent. The service was impeccable, the food was great, and the manager there, Gisele, did an amazing job. The Oval Room was gorgeous. I think one of the menu options, as I helped my sister plan was about $75/head, but I also think there was a minimum. So, I don't know how helpful this is, but if it's an option I was say do it!

          I see this is a late thread, but I hope JF peeks in. I'm looking at DB for my wedding dinner and was quoted $90 per person minimum menu, and a $8,000 food and drink minimum total for the Oval Room (seats 50). Just wondering if JF could confirm the prices with her sister, I'd be very interested to know, thanks!

          If you are not a huge French food fan and don't like chains - then steer clear of Mon Ami Gabi. It's a French Bistro brought to you by the Lettuce Entertain You group. It's not a chain but it's heavily corporate. It's a knockoff of Bouchon and DB and the food is just not very good, IMO.

          I'd stick with Rosemary's. Yes it's off the Strip and a bit of a hike but it's so worth it.

          Your guests can see the Bellagio fountains, the Mirage volcano, and the TI show any other day of the year.

            I just loooked up Rosemary's....a little expensive for my budget since they have a food and beverage minimum. Is there anywhere on the strip in that price range that's worthy? Is Tillerman's good?
