    How much money are you looking to spend? How many people are their going to be in your party? Any types of food off limits or any in particular that you are looking for?

      14 guests..as for budget we are used to some great places in NYC area so figured we will have to spend to have a great meal/night..but doesn't need to be priciest place in Vegas. Love all kinds of food, particularly italian, american, asian...not a huge fan of steakhouses. thanks!!

        If you are willing to go off-strip, consider contacting Parma by Chef Marc about doing a party. The 5-course tasting is $55 and every plate I had there (and at his pizzeria, Novecento) was excellent. The vibe is definitely fun/funky and the service is gracious and dedicated.

            I've only done brunch there, and I liked it a lot.

            If you're willing to spend mid-range money as you state, and are going to be here before May, I'd STRONGLY consider Circo at Belaggio. They share a kitchen with oft-raved Le Cirque and the room is great, with a view of the fountains as a bonus.

              I like Lavo. It's pretty loud, but lots of fun and good food.

        I think Jaleo would be worth considering. I would also think about rx boiler room. Also consider having a drink at Hyde in Bellagio before dinner....fun atmosphere but a bit more grown up than some places and in the early evening it's got a great view of the fountains.

          I assume that they can "package" a menu for you...but a great option would be miX at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay.
          Food (Alain Ducasse) and vibe (view, people) can be really, really good...as far as $$$, you have to judge that for yourself...and, as I suggested, talk to them about a "group package"....especially if you can do it during the week instead of weekend.

            This is a good suggestion. The Baba Au Rhum and the view alone are worth the trip to the top.

              Thx Mike...and I happen to know (from "insiders") that the view from the ladies' bathroom is a killer!!! :-)

                The men's room ain't bad either - a see-through wall looking out on the strip surrounds the urinals. :-)
