Best Restaurants in Las Vegas

Not only is Jean Georges one of the best steakhouses, but it’s also one of the best overall Las Vegas restaurants. The culinary genius behind this steakhouse, Chef Jean-Georges, has earned multiple Michelin stars, so you know the food has to be good.

The menu offers high-quality meats like Wagyu and Kobe A5. But if you prefer some less expensive cuts of meat, the restaurant offers USDA Prime as well, along with a great selection of seafood dishes. If you want to try this restaurant for yourself, you can find Jean Georges Steakhouse inside the Aria.

It’s also a great spot to eat if you’re looking for all-day breakfast on the Strip. Their steak & eggs are a must-try whether it’s late night or early morning. I like to grab some fresh fruit here to balance out my diet. You can find Peppermill on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip across the street from Resorts World.

If you get a chance to have a meal here, I recommend you try the restaurant’s signature entree, the beef wellington. The braised short rib and crispy skin salmon are excellent as well. You can find Hell’s Kitchen right outside of Caesars Palace. Reservations are encouraged for both lunch and dinner.

Hash House A Go Go is one of my favorite places to eat breakfast in Las Vegas. You’ll find the Hash House inside the LINQ in the center of the Strip, but they also have another location downtown. This restaurant has received a ton of press over the years for being one of the best breakfast spots on the Strip, but they also serve lunch and dinner.

Everything comes in giant portion sizes at Hash House A Go Go, so you’ll never leave the diner hungry.

12. Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas

Among Las Vegas restaurants, a reservation at the Eiffel Tower is probably the most prestigious. This place gets busy, so you’re going to want to make a reservation a few weeks out. Even with a reservation, expect a bit of a wait.

One of the reasons why the restaurant is so popular is because it has one of the best views in Las Vegas overlooking the Bellagio Fountains. On top of that, the French cuisine served here is out of this world and the service is second to none.

If you enjoy Chinese food, you’ll love Wing Lei. The restaurant’s chef, Ming Yu, has a knack for putting together perfectly crafted dishes, which helped Wing Lei become the first Chinese restaurant in the United States to earn a Michelin star.

When taking a peek at the menu, you’ll see signature dishes like imperial perking duck, garlic shrimp spring rolls, Alaskan king crab salad, General Tao’s chicken, and braised pork belly. This restaurant doesn’t get as much praise as it should because it’s surrounded by a ton of other great restaurants at the Wynn. I recommend you give Wing Lei a try the next time you’re at the Wynn.

When I ate at Momofuku, the waiter recommended trying the bigeye tuna and pork belly buns.
