Top 10 Steakhouses in Las Vegas
From prime cuts aged to perfection to melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu goodness, Las Vegas is a steak lovers paradise.
Vegas remains the “guys’ trip” capital of the world, so it’s no wonder that steakhouses dominate the Sin City dining scene. Here are our picks for the best red meat emporiums in town!
At this swanky new Italian-meets-steakhouse, in downtown’s D Las Vegas, the menu is loaded with meat for carnivores of all kinds. The steaks hail from top purveyors nationwide, but mamma mia, they aren’t the only option. An order of Andiamo’s enormous meatballs are a must for the table, and the rack of lamb, veal rib chop, and osso bucco also excel. Plus, this is a steakhouse where a homemade pasta or fish entrée is an acceptable substitute on nights when you’re not in the mood for red meat. Check out our review for more. 301 Fremont St, (702) 388-2220 thed.com
Another Italian/steakhouse hybrid, Mario Batali’s Carnevino (in Palazzo) is a haven for true steak connoisseurs, thanks to its famous riserva steaks that are aged up to eight months. If the rich (and hard-to-find, so call ahead) riserva isn’t for you, all of the steaks are dry-aged in their own meat locker, the only private locker in Vegas. Adding to Carnevino’s uniqueness: a young, female butcher. And since this is a Batali/Joe Bastianich outpost, both the antipasti menu and wine list are both five-star. 3325 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 789-4141 carnevino.com
Step back in time at the oldest steakhouse in Vegas, located on Sahara near the World’s Largest Gift Shop. A favorite among members of the Rat Pack (you can sit in Frank or Sammy’s booth – as well as the one once favored by Marilyn Monroe), Golden Steer has waitstaff who have been there for decades and love telling stories. Order old-school favorites like the steak (please, steak only at the Steer), baked potatoes the size of footballs, and its famous fried ravioli. 308 W Sahara Ave, (702) 384-4470 goldensteersteakhouselasvegas.com
Gordon Ramsay Steak
When Gordon Ramsay descended on Vegas, his steakhouse at Paris proved that even this irascible Brit could create a knockout all-American beef emporium. His steak cart makes ordering a breeze, and all of his sides, including fire-roasted corn and mac ‘n’ cheese, are delicious. For a finale that’s all-Brit, order the to-die-for sticky pudding that is served with a stick of butter (ice-cream). 3655 S Las Vegas Blvd, (877) 346-4642 parislasvegas.com
The newly-renovated N9NE is a longtime magnet for in-the-know locals and celebrities, who flock to Palms to taste the handiwork of chef Barry Dakake, himself now a local celeb. While people come for the people-watching and steaks, they fall in love with N9NE’s “garbage” salad, truffled gnocchi, and S’mores dessert you construct yourself over a small flame. 4321 W Flamingo Rd, (702) 933-9900 palms.com
One of two Jean Georges Vongerichten steakhouses (the other is at Aria), Prime’s gorgeous dining room overlooking Bellagio’s famous fountains provides the perfect ambiance for a delicious meal from the world-famous French chef. This is the kind of upscale restaurant where one serving of Wagyu isn’t enough; order the decadent sampler platter. Other standouts include Prime’s famous short ribs and one of the very best bone-in rib-eyes in town. 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 693-8484 bellagio.com
This Mandalay Bay favorite famously starts off every meal with a trio of duckfat fries, but save room for the steaks, which are poached with butter and charred on a wood fire grill. The available Wagyu cuts are impressive, but the signature steak is the Kobe rip cap. If the duckfat fries aren’t convincing enough, order an additional side of decadence, such as the fois gras sliders. 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 632-7200 mandalaybay.com
Steve Wynn’s eponymous steakhouse offers rare outdoor seating, on a wide patio overlooking his famous “Lake of Dreams,” which puts on min-shows, such as a country music-singing frog, throughout the night. Known for having one of the thickest wine lists in town, SW also now has a vegan menu, since its namesake no longer eats meat (his loss). Like with many of these red meat tributes, reservations are recommended. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 770-3325 wynnlasvegas.com
