What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?  Fortunately, that is not the case or we would never know that Vegas has gained quite the reputation as a food lover’s paradise.  If you are planning a trip to Las Vegas in the near future, here are some of the top Vegas restaurants you should check  out.

Top of the World Restaurant

If you want to experience one of the more unique dining experiences in all of Las Vegas, then you need to go to the Top of the World Restaurant located at the top of the Stratosphere.  The restaurant rotates 360 degrees allowing guests to see an ever-changing Las Vegas landscape.  The food is honestly about average in comparison to other restaurants, but this is one of those places you go more for the experience than the food.

Michael’s

If you are a lover of the Victorian Era or of Victorian-style, then a trip to Michael’s should be on your itinerary when you go to Vegas.  The restaurant is famous for both its black-tie service and its Victorian layout.  In addition, you get the added benefit of having your meals prepared at table side and interacting with your chefs.  Michael’s is located inside the South Point Hotel and Casino and is a quite a drive from the Vegas Strip, but the experience is worth the trip.

Andre’s

Andre’s is one of the smaller high-end restaurants in Las Vegas, but it has a charm and elegance all its own.  With Renaissance-style decor and setup similar to a French chateau, this small restaurant has a fantastic menu with dishes such as Muscovy duck breast, foie gras, and much more.

Chef Andre Rochat is a Las Vegas legend and became famous at his Chef Roch at in downtown Vegas.  Eventually, the operators of the Monte Carlo persuaded him to head up to the strip and open a second property.  The result is one of the most intimate dining experiences in Las Vegas.

Aqua

The Bellagio in Las Vegas is known for having the best of the best in terms of gambling, entertainment, and especially food.  Aqua is one of the crown jewels of the property and is run by Chef Michael Mina.

Chef Mina has the seafood at Aqua flown in fresh each day and as a result Aqua has been compared with some of the best seafood restaurants in the world.  Just about any type of seafood imaginable is available on the menu and guest absolutely love the stunning decor that consists of honey-colored woods, expensive tile floors, and canvas lighting.

I go to vegas every year for a work convention but I have never been to any of these.
Usually I just stick with whatever is convenient unless I have a meeting or something but vegas has amazing buffet in just about every hotel.

I usually stay at the wynn or encore and the food is decent.
