James Bond-like restaurant in Las Vegas?

caraely Jan 27, 2010 03:15 PM

Looking for a James Bond style restaurant in Vegas (thinking of the books more than the movies, if that makes a difference to anyone :) ). Great martinis, great steaks. Not fussy, or too hush-hush quiet. I'd like high quality, interesting clientele, more old school than new/hip/sterile.

Off the strip is okay. This is for a group of seven people, from age 33 to 66. We are not loud partiers but don't want to feel like we can't talk, laugh, get a bit in our cups. Looking for a memorable meal.

I can't say that money is no object, but I realize food is pricier in Vegas so I'm ready for that. I'm estimating $100 pp for food, plus another $200-300 total for drinks (one person does not drink, one only drinks beer, the rest will have cocktails and wine).

Thanks in advance.

    I'm leaning towards Golden Steer, because the vibe seems so perfect. Del Frisco's is a chain, which turns me off for some reason.
    I'll be in Vegas this weekend for a quick trip so I'm going to do some reconnaissance and see if Golden Steer fits the bill. Thanks!

      The James Bond motif you are looking for is at Del Frisco's. Their steaks are good as far as wet aged although I prefer dry aged. You can probably make your budget although not with a lot of extra room.

        I second Del Frisco's for Bond fans. When I went to Del Frisco's a few years ago, if you asked to see the "James Bond" table after your meal, you would get quite the treat. Wonder if the "Bond" table is still there. Very cool. And I was quite impressed with the meat too.

        A few places come to mind for great steaks and atmosphere:
        Carnevino at Palazzo - http://www.palazzolasvegas.com/carnevino.aspx
        Strip House at Planet Hollywood - http://www.striphouse.com/
        StripSteak at Mandalay Bay - http://www.mandalaybay.com/dining/StripSteak.aspx
        Hank's at Green Valley Ranch - http://www.greenvalleyranchresort.com/dining/hanks.php

        Here's a few Italian restaurants that are really kind of a mafia-feel:
        Piero's - http://www.pieroscuisine.com/
        Rao's at Caesars Palace - http://www.caesarspalace.com/casinos/caesars-palace/restaurants-dining/raos-detail.html
        Hugo's Cellar at Four Queens - http://www.fourqueens.com/
        Carluccio's - http://www.carlucciosvegas.com/

        Hope that helps!
