Nice but not too pricey dinner with prospective in-laws

My boyfriend's son is in Las Vegas for a couple of days to ask his girlfriend's parents for the hand of their daughter - the old fashioned way. He is asking for a recommendation for a nice but not too expensive restaurant in which to ask for the parents' blessing, and the only places we can think of are the ritzy ones in the hotels, which I imagine he would want to avoid. Any suggestions?

    What is not too expensive? Also, what types of cuisine is he looking for? Will he have a car? What hotel are they staying at?

      Hard to beat Charlie Palmer's "Cut of the Week" menu at the Four Seasons. Great atmosphere, $48 3 course prix fixe with unlimited wine. Best bargain in Vegas at a 4* restaurnat, and no better way to get a parents' blessing than unlimited wine!!

        That sounds like something I will definitely want to check out next time I'm in town, but probably too expensive for him. Thanks1

        Her folks live in Las Vegas, so he's staying with them. He drove his car down there, and is probably limited to a price point of $25 - $30 per person. Cuisine is less important than the ambiance and budget.

          The Flame at the El Cortez might work.

          Also, Triple George Grill

          Mon Ami Gabi for lunch. If they sit on the patio they can watch the fountains at the Bellagio.

        How about Milos in the Cosmo on the strip for their 3 course prix fixe $20.12 lunch.
        I think this would be wonderful..
        I love that he is asking for the parents blessing...good boy and old school.

              Via Brasil is $44.99 which is out of the requested price range.
