Any decent food in Harrah's family of casino restaurants?

  • 3

Need help w/ an odd question/request: Going to Vegas for 3 days starting on Monday, staying on the strip, and my family has a bunch of dining credit at the Harrah's family of casinos (Caesar's, Bally's Paris, Harrah's, Imperial Palace, etc.) that we want to spend before they expire soon. I know a lot of the good eats on the strip are not at these hotels, but looking for the best that they have to offer.

What I know:
Probably going to Payard (Caesar's) and Hash House A Go Go (Imperial Palace) for brunch. Been to Bradley Ogden for sit down dinner and was not that impressed even though we like his Parcel 104 restaurant in the SF Bay Area (but we may try the $29 prix fixe menu in the lounge). I'd be interested in Mesa Grill but my wife isn't a fan of the menu. Guy Savoy sounds great but we don't have that much restaurant credit. =)

What I need help with:
We're looking more for casual than fine dining, and don't really care about atmosphere, just good food. Anywhere else in Caesar's for a decent meal? (Beijing Noodle #9?) Anything in Paris? Or Planet Hollywood? I know I'm stretching to find some good meals at these places, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Make sure the dining credit is good at restaurants not owned by Harrahs. Most hotels limit dining credit and comps to their own restaurants and not restaurants that are leased out. Hash House A Go Go, a Imperial Palace, has received poor reviews. If you can use the credit at leased locations, Mon Ami Gabi, at Paris, is a good choice.

    1. I just ate at Hash House A Go Go. They serve big portions, sometimes ridiculously big. I tried the corned beef has which considering the name seemed like a good choice. It was very tasty, but I wouldn't call it hash. It is a good size portion of shredded corned beef on top of a portion of diced fried potatoes. It is in no way "melded" together like a real hash. I was expecting cooked meat and cooked potatoes grilled together into, well, a hash.

      1. Well, first off you're best off at Caesars. It's the only Harrah's casino with such a HUGE lineup of top quality restaurants. Mon Ami Gabi at Paris is fabulous, but IMHO the rest of Paris' lineup is pretty weak (Eiffel Tower included!).

        Secondly, I hope you reconsider Bradley Ogden. IMHO it really is one of Vegas' best "hidden treasures". The $59 (restaurant) prix fixe menu is also one of the best bang-for-your-buck bargains in town! Oh, and the food is far superior IMHO to Mesa Grill. I have yet to be impressed by a meal there.

        Rao's at Caesars may be great if you're really into great Italian. Serendipity 3 is the ideal spot for great comfort food, especially the HUGE desserts! Oh yes, and Beijing Noodle #9 is always a good spot for great Chinese.
