    Looking for BEST steaks on Las Vegas strip

    Specifically at Wynn/Encore and Venetian/Palazzo. We've been to SW at The Wynn, and it was good. I mean, it was a good steakhouse, but I wasn't blown away like I have been at some others. Has anyone had experience at Botero (The Wynn), or at Carnevino, CUT, or Delmonico (The Venetian)?

    Last year I went to this place and the tomahawk I ordered was excellent.

        Thanks, BH. We've been there, and liked it very much. There's so much buzz about Carnevino and CUT, though!

          Go to the casino and win $1000 and go to both of those places.👍

          My wife and I have been to many great steak restaurants and we have both noticed that the steaks keep getting smaller and more expensive. $45.00 - $55.00 for a bone in rib-eye in most high end places such as: Mastro's, Donovan's Steak & chops, Fleming's steakhouse and we can't forget Ruth's Chris Steak House back in the day. We have realized that we would rather go buy a nice thick prime grade rib-eye from a butcher and cook it on the BBQ at home. We still go out to great Steak places but we usually order the prime rib or fish such as Salmon or Halibut.

          Yeah, but this is vacation. We like the restaurant experience. A good dinner out has value. We usually come home with more $$ than we arrive with, so a couple shows, a couple nice meals... the only limit is the number of days we're there!

        It's been 10 years, but I had a great bone-in ribeye at Delmonico. But cooking style and beef has changed in the last 10 years. Now they have dry aged beef, Japanese Waygu, and cooked with different seasonings. Also had their oysters too, very tasty!

          I made the reservation for CUT, because I saw on the menu a tasting of New York sirloin: 4oz Nebraska 35 day dry aged prime, 4oz SRF American Wagyu, and 2oz 100% Japanese Wagyu from Satsuma Prefecture. I might not get that, but anyone who offers it probably has a pretty good handle on what's happening in the kitchen.

            Like DJ DeSpain the wife and I really enjoyed Delmonico at the Venetian back in the day, but it was probably 10 years ago. Was a bit loud if I remember correctly but the food was excellent.

              Last time I was in Vegas, pehaps 10 years ago, I had AWESOME steaks at Stripsteak in the mandalay. Owned by chef Michael Mina they sous-vided the meat in butter and then seared it over wood. Some of the best beef of my life.

                Oh man, that must have been spectacular.

                We chose CUT. I had a dry-aged prime strip steak, I couldn’t justify the sampler. It was fantastic, one of those meals that I still remember years later: where you shut your eyes while you are savoring the beef, thinking to yourself, “Remember this.”

              Las Vegas, Oh be careful, I was there 46 years ago and came home with my wife.

              Bob Taylors Ranch House puts out a great steak, it is a ways off the strip, but you can hit the Santa Fe on the way back to the big party. Not as fancy as the more famous spots, but sometimes simple is better

                Not that I'm a frequent visitor, but the best steaks in town (as well as accommodations for that matter) were always in direct proportion to the amount of money you're winning from the casinos. Just sayin......

                  My belief is that casino steakhouses are the epitome of the American dream. Win big, buy yourself a bacchanalia!

                Since we’re reviving an old post...
                CUT is worth a look...and José Andrés’ Bazaar is excellent.
                Also, Echo & Rig and Raku...though I’m not certain that they’re still around.

                Bazaar is cool because it’s...well, different. And while some of the pricing might seem “reasonable,” get that notion outta ya head. LOL It’s way too easy to order more & more & more.

                FWIW though, I’d generally much rather get a nice cut and cook it myself. More often than not, I’ve often felt a little let down at some of the “great” steakhouses.
                (Especially as I’ve upped my grilling game.)

                To be sure, they’re very tasty...but quite often they’re less than “amazing.”

                For the 2-3 hundred bucks (or more) that dinner for two might go for...one could do the same at home. For a WHOLE lot less.
                Even going so far as purchasing aged beef if that’s the goal.
                And that hundred+ dollar bottle of wine (or two) will probably be a third of that.

                Certainly a dinner out like that can be an experience...and perhaps worth the expense in that regard.
                BUT...doing it yourself offers something that none of those restaurants can: bragging rights that you did it yourself. That’s what I love about AR...I can ask a question and get bunches of ideas on how to pull it off. Heck even Meathead provided and idea when talking about a restaurant he went to...I might just need to SV a steak in butter and then blast that thing over a hot wood fire. I got this. ;-)

                  Echo and Rig is awesome. It is a bit of a drive off the strip but it is less than half of what you would pay for a steak on the strip and better than most of them.

                For us it was Charlie Palmers in Mandalay Bay (the one where the pretty lady is on a rope thingy fetchin’ wine). To Troutman point, a one-armed bandit paid for that meal.

                  That’s the point of Vegas! If you do it right, you don’t pay for the room, or the flight, and sometimes you also get breakfast. So the gaming budget is also the vacation budget. Get the steakhouse meal on one of the nights that you hit a nice win! You were eating out that night anyhow, so make it memorable!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
