Top 10 Seafood Restaurants in Las Vegas
In the Mood for Delicious Seafood? Here's Our Guide to The Catch of The Day!
Las Vegas may be in the middle of the desert, but it stops at nothing to get the freshest seafood flown in daily from all over the world. Here are the best.
For New Orleans food with a kick, head straight to MGM Grand, to Emeril Lagasse’s eponymous seafood emporium. Start with barbecue shrimp, or clam chowder with applewood smoked bacon. For an entrée, choose from fish dishes like barbecued Atlantic salmon with Andouille pork sausage, pecan-crusted Texas Redfish, or his famous shrimp, chicken and Andouille pork gumbo. 3799 Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 891-7374 emerilsrestaurants.com
An All-American outpost at Mandalay Bay, RM Seafood has garnered much attention for its groundbreaking sustainable seafood program. Specialties range from charred octopus and steamed Holland mussels, to Rhode Island-style calamari and an impressive raw bar. 3950 Las Vegas Blvd South, (702) 632-9300 rmseafood.com
Cosmopolitan’s stunning seafood spot offers patio dining and a lunch special whose prices can’t be beat. At dinner, shell out for a custom piece of fish, hand-picked treats from the raw bar, or one of their Greek specialties. Milos classics include Mediterranean grilled octopus, jumbo shrimp, crab cakes, and grilled Portuguese sardines. 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 698-7930 milos.ca
Bartolotta serves the kind of Italian fare that makes Mediterranean seafood so famous. Diners arrive at this Wynn hot spot via a spectacular staircase and may choose to eat inside the newly-renovated dining room or outside on the lagoon-front patio. The day’s catch (flown in every morning from Europe) is brought to each table for their perusal, then oven roasted or charcoal grilled – or choose from the extensive a la carte menu of Italian favorites. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3298 wynnlasvegas.com
Nestled inside the high fashion Crystals shopping center, the dramatic dining room at Mastro’s is the perfect place to dig into a plate of delicious seafood. A classic menu features shrimp cocktail, snow crab legs, and oysters Rockefeller to start. Finish up with one of more than a dozen seafood options, from Pacific swordfish to Gulf Red Snapper or vanilla-battered twin lobster tails. 3720 Las Vegas Strip, (702) 798-7115 mastrosrestaurants.com
Joe’s Stone Crab
This import from South Beach serves up the freshest seafood in the “new” arm of Forum Shops. Power lunchers spring for the steakhouse or seafood chopped salad with lobster, shrimp and Alaskan King Crab. Yummy dinner options range from salmon au poivvre to fish and chips. Then, of course, there are those famous stone crabs that don’t need any explanation at all. 3500 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 792-9222 joes.net
After entering through Bellagio’s world-famous lobby, head straight through the conservatory to Michael Mina. Indulge in the shellfish tasting or a parfait of osetra caviars. For an entrée, the phyllo-crusted sole is a thrill, as is the Maine lobster pot pie, or go for something more traditional, like the tasty king salmon with chanterelle and bacon. 3400 Las Vegas Fwy, (702) 693-8199 michaelmina.net
Under the watchful eye of a chef from the Hawaiian islands, Bellagio’s Sensi loves its seafood. Fun appetizers include “salmon crackers” (nori crisps with kaffir smoked salmon and wasabi avocado), and yellow sashimi with apple and fennel. Or share an impressive shellfish platter, fresh oysters, or wok charred squid. Finish your seafood feast with wok fired live lobster, Alaskan halibut, cedar plank tuna, or diver scallops in a dry Thai curry. 3600 Las Vegas Blvd Overpass, (702) 693-8800 bellagio.com
Wynn’s ultra-special Mizumi is Japanese food at its finest. The gold and red décor point to an over-the-top fine dining experience, overlooking a private man-made lake. To kick off your night out, order a bunch of dishes to share. We recommend the Wagyu short ribs, spicy King crab and taro tacos, the Japanese pancake entrée, and anything from the sushi and robatakai menus. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3320 wynnlasvegas.com
