Las Vegas has become a fine-dining capital. Celebrity chefs continue to open cornerstone establishments and unique dining experiences, leading to restaurants consistently receiving distinctions from revered institutions like the James Beard Foundation. Furthermore, Las Vegas was chosen to host The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards this June, bringing the most talented and renowned culinary minds from around the globe to cook and collaborate.

It’s Vegas, though, so there’s more than spectacular food on the menu. Restaurants here have created culinary adventures that are as much about what’s happening around you as they are about the art on your plate. Check out these unique dining experiences complete with skyline views, live entertainment, ambient sound and light, and truly exceptional service. With this top-notch mix of elements, dining in the destination is always a memorable experience.

Showtime at Your Table

The Mayfair Supper Club combines the glamourous flair of old Vegas with an international vibe you’d find at supper clubs around the world. And because it’s at Bellagio, it has smashing views of the resort’s famous fountains. This spot takes dinner and a show to elegant new heights – there’s singing and dancing, and a wagyu prime rib that’s roasted for seven hours before it arrives at your table. Dinner at The Mayfair Supper Club is a complete night out, bookended with cocktails in the piano bar, the signature chocolate “Cigar” dessert, and a party scene that goes well past midnight. This stylish destination offers a refined mix of Las Vegas’ best cuisine, cocktails and entertainment, all in an unforgettable setting. Dress in your most stylish Roaring Twenties attire to feel like you’re part of the show.

 

Sometimes, the preparation is the show you get with your meal – and that’s exactly the case at The X Pot. Located at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, its hand-pulled noodles are stretched table-side and dropped into your soup with dramatic flair. Other selections at the popular spot arrive via robot server for an even more interesting experience. Its signature wagyu feast, served on a golden calf, features six cuts including A5 wagyu beef flown in daily from Japan. Want to go beyond taste and aroma? The X Pot offers exclusive 5D spectrum dining. 5D means you’ll use all five senses throughout your meal and dine surrounded by ever-changing projections and holograms and an accompanying soundtrack.

Undersea or Above It All

You’ll join a group of 16 people max and travel by simulated submarine to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This exclusive setting at AREA15 has only two seatings a night, Thursday through Saturday. Chef Taylor Persh is your captain for a four-stage journey through 16 courses and a selection of rum-based cocktails. The expansive menu includes plenty of fresh seafood; no matter what’s on your plate, there’s a story to tie it to the Jules Verne classic. Persh’s attention to detail is both immaculate and whimsical, from the caviar plated inside a replica Fabergé egg to the Jungle Bird cocktail served in a parrot-shaped ceramic glass with pineapple greens as plumage.

On the 106th floor of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & Tower, Top of the World offers unmatched views of the Strip. This is a stylish and romantic venue, where even special proposal packages are available. The classic steak and seafood menu features American Prime, Australian Wagyu and Japanese A5 Wagyu, or fresh catches like Alaskan cod or Maine lobster. This is an elegant destination, where old-school Vegas vibes have been updated for new-school culinary excellence.

The Decadence Is in the Details

Carversteak at Resorts World Las Vegas is more than a carnivore’s paradise, it also has custom whiskey and a knife shop on site. This luxury steakhouse has a full menu of prime cuts, including a 42-ounce wagyu tomahawk rib chop – and you even get to select your own cutlery to carve it apart. There’s lobster, too, wrapped in golden pastry, and a raw bar with the freshest oysters. Carversteak bartenders will mix your martini tableside or help you select from the rare or limited spirits in their thoughtfully curated collection. While the specialty here are the prime cuts, the restaurant also has a vegan menu to accommodate everyone in your party.

Dom Pérignon by the glass, served off a champagne trolley. Beijing duck that’s meticulously carved, precision filleted Dover sole and, to end your meal, a decadent dessert cart. Service is performance at MR CHOW. The Caesars Palace restaurant is a see-and-be-seen splurge – keep your eyes open for celebrities, or just watch the changing moon sculpture, a kinetic overhead art installation. The Beijing-style menu is perfect for sharing, but if you’re overwhelmed by the options, consider the semi prix fixe menu to introduce you to all the options.

Fixed Menu, Endless Imagination

Place yourself in the chef’s hands at Partage and reserve a five-, seven- or nine-course modern French tasting menu. Everything is perfectly planned, from the wine pairings to the bespoke cocktails to each seasonally inspired plate. Past menus have included Nigerian shrimp wrapped in wagyu and 3D-printed edible honeycomb filled with goat cheese. About 10 minutes from the Strip in the Chinatown neighborhood, the restaurant features an open kitchen – sit at the counter to watch the artistic chefs at work – and the style is casual elegance. You won’t find a menu until you sit down; offerings change frequently to accommodate what’s fresh. This spot is for foodies who don’t need to know what’s for dinner before they sit down!
