James Bond-like restaurant in Las Vegas?

caraely Jan 30, 2010 03:00 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 horribly unqualified to answer this as I haven't read the books, but what comes to mind for me is Charlie Palmer Steaks @ the Four Seasons. Old School. http://www.charliepalmersteaklv.com/i...

    If you are at all interested in Japanese food, I think that Hamada of Japan on Flamingo (the stand-alone location) might suit your desired vibe. Its dark, reserved, elegant, and you just get a feeling that some high power deals are going on in the dining room. They have a sushi bar, teppanyaki tables, and a tatami (low table) room, but the dining room is where I think you would want to go. http://www.hamadaofjapan.com/

    A bit kitchy, stuck-in-time place for cocktails......The Peppermill. Their website is terrible, just google it and look at pictures and reviews elsewhere.

      The Golden Steer just off the Strip on West Sahara. About as old-school as it gets. Red leather, tableside Caesar, etc. So old-school that they don't seem to have a website right now.

        They also have a piano player in the lounge and bartenders who know how to mix classic cocktails perfectly.

        Try Aureole at Mandalay Bay:


        IMHO, it's simply the best for a classy dinner with top-notch drinks. The wine list is among the best in town... After all, they had a 4 story glass tower built just to store all their bottles! :-)
