Dinner with a view - Sunday night

We will be in Vegas for business, but have a free Sunday night when we'd like to have dinner at a great restaurant with the best view in the city. It's a special occasion, and price is not a factor for this dinner. We are 40 years old, lean away from stuffy/formal and would love something with a fun/trendy vibe if possible, but great food with a great view is the most important consideration. Thanks in advance!

  1. We had a nice meal at Top of the World at the Stratosphere a few years back. Beautiful view and the food was really good too. Another memorable meal was at Nove Italiano at the Palms. We didn't have a window seat, but still had a nice view of all the Vegas lights. Food and service were both excellent

      The view from the top of the Stratosphere ain't all that great anymore. A resort called the Fountainbleau was built on the east side of the Strip just south of the Sahara. The Fountainbleau went bankrupt and much of the planned resort was never finished. But the tower was completed.

      And it's HUGE. Taller than any hotel on the north Strip. Its mass and height obstruct the view of most of the center strip from the observation floors of the Stratosphere's tower.

    2. MIX at Mandalay Bay perhaps? I've not been but heard good things and it has great views from the pictures I have seen.

      1. Nove at the Palms hotel is just a wonderful experience all around. Ask for a window seat and you will have the best viewing in LV. Chef Geno is also a genius in the kitchen and will make your evening very special. He's a whiz!

        1. The Eiffel Tower in the Paris hotel may hit your "stuffy barrier but it has a great view of the Bellagio fountains. Two caveats: 1) Most, but not all tables have taht view, be sure to ask for it at the point of reservation. 2) If it is windy, they turn off the fountains.

          And a trick...go the Eiffel Tower late for dessert and coffee. They have a chocolate sampler that is a killer with the ladies. Just get the view and set up the timing so that you will be there during when the fountains go off.

          1. I'll agree with the View of Nove as long as you don't get stuck staring at the Palms sign. Food is great there - a tad expensive. If you want a relatively closeup view of the strip, you could go to the steakhouse at Harrahs - food is OK not great but you get to see the Mirage volcano erupting and have a 180 degree view along the strip.
