Amazing Dinner to celebrate getting married

We are flying in on Nov 22nd, staying 4 nights at the MGM. I am trying to narrow down where to have our wedding night dinner on Nov 23rd. Sadly, my two top choices, Picasso and Alex are both closed on Tuesdays. I thought maybe we would go "old school" and dine at Top of the World, I have not seem many reviews recently about the food, obviously, the view is spectacular. I am also considering Alize at the Palms or Aureole at Mandalay Bay. I would appreciate any thoughts/opinions/reviews. There are so many choices it has become overwhelming trying to choose.

  1. If there are no budgetary constraints, Guy Savoy.

    1. We just got back from Vegas, with dinners at Alex and Joel Robuchon ... since your two top choices are not available I'd recommend Robuchon (the only Michelin 3 star in Vegas) or Guy Savoy for high-end French food. I was told Robuchon himself will be there that week, fwiw.

      A place we didn't dine at but that looked pretty romantic and intriguing when we walked by (and supposedly has very good food) was Bartolotta at Wynn. They have these little cabanas by the pool that looked very chic.

        Robuchon will already be gone on the day the OP arrives.

          SDGourmand, you are right ... we dined there Tuesday night and on the walk back to the limo after the meal I menioned we would be returning in November for a birthday celebration so the hostess mentioned to us that M. Robuchon would be there part of the month.

          I misremembered it as Nov 21-28, but I just checked with my wife and she said it was definitely Nov 14-21 ... I'm blaming it on the Burgundy and the glass of port but it was probably just a senior moment.

          Robuchon would indeed be amazing, however, we are picking up the tab for 4 people, so unless we hit the big one Monday night in the casino, pretty much not an option.

            Thank you for the replies. Bartolotta looks like a good choice. Still would like to know if anyone has dined at Alize or Top of the World recently. The other days we are planning on dinner and breakfast at Bouchon, lunch at Border Grill and Bradley Ogden. And since it's Vegas, we have to do go to at least one really good buffet.

              As a Las Vegas local, the Wynn buffet is considered the best in the Valley. Even at $35.99 per person it is still a deal. They change over to dinner at 3:30 pm and do not close. This means get there around 3:00 pm and pay the lunch price of $22.95 per person and stay for dinner. Dinner includes prime rib, peeled jumbo shrimp. already cracked king crab legs and a killer desert area.
