My husband and I will be in Las Vegas in early October and have decided to go to either Fleur or Aureole. Which would you all recommend for a nice (not stuffy) dinner? We love good food, but we're trying to keep ourselves in check (financially) this time around.

    If you go Aureole go "Swan Court" They have a great tasting menu
    CELEBRATION MENU OF GREAT AMERICAN FOOD

    I did have a great meal at Fleur...when it was Fleur De Lys but Keller was in the kitchen that night so I cannot speak after that.

      Agreed. I'd go Aureole Swan Court too.
      Also one can usually pick up a restaurant.com $50 cert for Aureole for $4.
      Fleur usually has some certs available too.

        We were at the new Fleur in September and really enjoyed it. It is a tapas style menu so you can try a variety of small dishes. We had the croque monsieur, mussels, sliders, wings, chicken croquettes, meatballs and a couple of desserts. We also had a couple of cocktails and the bill was only about $145. I thought the sliders were a bit of a disappointment but everything else was really good. We went to Aureole a few years ago and I didn't love it. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings but we weren't blown away. It was definitely more formal whereas the new Fleur is casual. We actually took our kids (6 and 9) to Fleur and they weren't out of place at all.

          Thanks a million, LisafromCalgary. It sounds like Fleur is what we're looking for; we want good food, but in a casual environment. I saw that you can purchase a $50 gift card for only $8 at restaurant.com, so it sounds like a fantastic way to try it out. Thanks so much for your post!
