Heading to the IHEARTRADIO concert in September.. Le Atelier is booked, so only choice left is the main Robuchon... and I will not be able to fit in the 16 course dinner before the concert, so I booked at Le Cirque for the time being..

What are my options / pricing ? at Robuchon? Like I said, I do not have 3-4 Hours..

Thanks.

    You could do a short dinner at Robuchon, but I wouldn't recommend it. When I dined there a few months ago, there was a couple who ordered only 2 courses, as they were going to a show. However, they were unable to get the full Robuchon experience. Unless you are able to eat there regularly, I think you should save that restaurant for a night when you have nothing else on your plate and can devote your full time and attention to the dining experience. For me, I went in knowing this would be a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience, and I took full advantage of it.

    Prices for the Prix Fixe menu start at $120 for 2 courses and go up to $240 for 6 courses. Their 16-course menu is $395. I ordered from the 4-course prix fixe menu and added a cheese course. With drinks, supplements, tax, and tip, the bill for two people was a little over $1,000. If I remember correctly, our dinner took about 3 hours.

      I've been a long-time fan of Le Cirque in LV, and a new fan of Joel Robuchon. Both are excellent! I had the six course dinner at Robuchon in April, and it took close to 4 hours. If the lenght of dinner is a concern, I'd recommend Le Cirque. You'll still have a wonderful dinner!

        4 hours???? for the six course??.. I spoke with the MGM rest resv staff, and they said I should be able to fit in the 6 course pre-fixe.. obviously she was wrong.. hmm seating at 530, and show at 730, i dont mind missing the first band, but still doesnt seem like enough time... if i remember correctly the MGM theatre is quite a hike as well ... a good 30mins thru the casino/hotel...

          Please do not go to Robuchon if you don't even have 2 hours. It is one of the most luxurious (and expensive) meals, and it would be a shame to rush the experience. Yes, my 6 course dinner did take almost 4 hours (6:30 reservation, finished about 10:15), and I was dining alone. Service is definitely not rushed. I've had dinner at Le Cirque 3 or 4 times, and as long as you don't order a tasting menu, you should be able to have an enjoyable dinner in 2 hours.
