The best steakhouses in Las Vegas – They say that what happens in Vegas should stay there, based on the amount of partying you’re expected to do. But amongst the pool parties, club nights and many hours at the casino, there’s another thing that Vegas does better than anywhere else—and that’s a good steakhouse.
Las Vegas has become a hotspot for a ton of different cuisines, from Thai noodles to French food, but its steakhouse offering is as indulgent and extravagant as it always has been (and remains one of the only places to get a certified Japanese A5 Kobe). You can splash out on an unforgettable $200 steak on the Strip, or try a Wagyu sandwich for the very first time. Really, getting a steak in Vegas is just part of the experience. It’s got to be done. Here are the best steakhouses in Vegas right now.
1. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés
Don’t call it a steakhouse. According to superstar chef José Andrés, this Philippe Starck–designed restaurant at SLS is a “meathouse,” dedicated to celebrating the bounty of the earth, be it in the form of A5 Kobe straight from Japan, Finnish caviar, or even leeks with charred chipotle sauce. The ingredients—sourced so carefully the R&D team tried more than 500 cuts of meat before opening—are the stars here, but the chefs still have fun showing them off. That means foie gras is offered wrapped in cotton candy and dishes like the classic steak tartare are mixed tableside with plenty of panache. Don’t skip the suckling pig, imported from Spain and served by the quarter. You’ve never had such succulent swine.

Wolfgang Puck, the man responsible for revolutionizing Las Vegas visitors’ eating expectations (with Spago), opened this classic steakhouse in the Palazzo in 2008. Since then, Cut has demonstrated that it’s a slice above many other steak joints. For one thing, that’s practically all you find here: meat, meat and more glorious meat. Go for the 100 percent pure Japanese Wagyu if you can, but rest assured there are no bad choices here, only splendid steaks grilled over wood and charcoal and finished under a 1,200-degree broiler. Complete your meal with one of the dozen side-dish options, a topper or sauces like wasabi-yuzu kosho butter or brightly herbal chimichurri.
The selection of meats (grass-fed veal, lamb shank, filet mignon, braised short ribs) is impressive, but the sides and the quiet invention shown in the kitchen distinguish Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak from more run-of-the-mill casino steakhouses. Ingredients come from small family farms and other below-the-radar sources, and you can tell, particularly when it comes to the splurgy Japanese A5 Kobe, which will set you back a cool $260 for the eight-ounce filet. It’s all served in an elegant, if slightly noisy, atmosphere.
Prime indeed. In fact, one could go further: first class, superior and pre-eminent pretty much sum up Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s steakhouse, where the elegant setting comes with a perfect view of the Bellagio fountains. There’s magic on the plate, too: steaks are the highlights, but don’t overlook the parmesan-crusted chicken, seared ahi tuna or selection of seven potato-based sides. And start with the bacon-wrapped shrimp. You can thank us later.
5. Delmonico Steakhouse
Looking for a slight twist on the typical steak and seafood eatery? We’ve got just the place for you. Emeril Lagasse’s signature Cajun spin separates Delmonico’s from the rest of the pack. Start with the New Orleans barbecue shrimp, then try the creole-seasoned New York strip steak with a side of the bacon and white cheddar grits or country smashed potatoes. Then pinch yourself just to make sure you’re not down on the bayou.
