Vegas - Nobhill or Fiamma?
A dozen of us are meeting in Vegas for a class reunion. We are staying in MGM and are looking to dine at a mid-range fine dining restaurant in the hotel before the show. We checked out the fall dining menus and came down to a tie between Nobhill and Fiamma. Which one do you think is a better restaurant, in terms of food, ambiance, and service? Thank you.
If it's a 10th reunion, go to Fiamma. If it's a 25th, go to Nob Hill. :-)
Seriously, they're both very good, & calling it a tie is a pretty fair assessment. So, comes down to a question of what kind of experience you're looking for.
I find Fiamma to be a bit more of a "scene" (but not obnoxiously so), & has a younger vibe. It's more of a high-energy place. More conducive to a more "rowdy" group. Should I assume that the show you're going to is Ka? If so, I think Fiamma might be a bit more ... compatible.
Nob Hill is somewhat more subdued, relaxing, & even romantic. I've been there when there have been larger groups, & the vibe stays basically at mellow conversation. If you have serious foodies & winos who want a lot of focus on those aspects, Nob Hill is your choice.
Service is very good to excellent at both. Generally the staffers at Fiamma are younger & more casual. At Fiamma, the staff generally starts off fairly formal, & then will relax & be more convivial & chatty if that's what you want.
Is that any help?
We ate at both on our last trip. We enjoyed both but would probably put Nobhill ahead a bit.
I agree with the above assessment though regarding scene. So depending on what you're looking for Fiamma might be better.
Either way you should be pleased...
