Six Unique Restaurants in Las Vegas You MUST TRY

There’s two types of people in Las Vegas: those that spend all their money gambling and those that spend all their money on food. I’m the latter and if you’re reading this, I’m guessing you are too!

Las Vegas has one of the best restaurant scenes in the whole world, concentrated on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s the place of beautiful and whimsical restaurants with over-the-top thematic designs and the most romantic and unique luxury dining experiences. And of course, you can’t miss the world famous Las Vegas buffets that take you on a culinary trip around the world. Here are six unique restaurants you must dine at on a one week trip to Las Vegas!

1. Top of the World Restaurant – The Strat

The most unique and worthwhile dining experience for the value, the Top of the World Restaurant is top of MY list in this world for so many reasons. It is a restaurant located in the Strat Hotel, over 800 ft high into the sky and offers a 360 view of Las Vegas via rotation of the entire restaurant every 80 minutes. 

Coincidental matching with the buildings behind us, I swear….

Pro Tip: To get a guaranteed window seat is $25 per person, you can select this during the booking. I decided to go for the window seats to ensure I had unobstructed views of the city from sunset to dark as it was highlight of this restaurant – it was so worth it!

You might think dining here is just for the views but the food is also phenomenal – the food itself is enough reason to dine here for the experience even if you aren’t interested in paying extra for window seats!

Good to know: Each person has to order a minimum of $55. We ordered two cheaper entrees and an appetizer to meet that requirement 😂

What To Order:

  • Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding: *chef’s favorite* with a variety of wild mushrooms, fall herbs, and emmenthal cheese. 10/10 this was so unique, with flavors unlike anything I’ve ever had before, and so delicious.
  • Pappardelle Pasta: ragu of confit duck, crispy brussel sprouts, balsamic mushrooms, and sauce romesco. 10/10 generous portions and al dente pasta, tasty and filling
  • Blackened Salmon: included lobster, bacon, and gnocchi chowder. 10/10 Super tender salmon, creamy chowder with huge gnocchi, huge lobster claw meat!

We purposely chose dishes that we knew would be filling and we actually ended up with some leftovers we had to take to go! Not pictured below is the super fluffy bread that was complimentary – we even got seconds of that because it was so good.

Golden hour snaps:

Pro Tip: Table reservations are from 4pm to 11pm. To get the most holistic experience I recommend checking when sunset is and booking your reservation 30 minutes before sunset so you can snap pictures of the changing sky from golden hour to sunset and then enjoy the nighttime lights. Upscale dress code required.

This dining experience was unforgettable – from the ambiance to the views to the delicious and unique dishes we had. I really recommend a visit here if you want something different and special!

2. Sadelle’s – Bellagio

A must-visit place for brunch, Sadelle’s is a lovely restaurant serving brunch classics with their own unique delicious twist. The ambiance and setting is so pretty.

Check out Sadelle’s menu.

What To Order:

  • Sadelle’s Signature Breakfast (with Salmon Benedict, Sticky Bun, Fresh Fruit, Coffee) $36 The combo is really worth the value! The eggs benedict was perfection. Fruits were super fresh! 10/10
  • Specialty Avocado Toast $21 One of the best avocado toasts I’ve ever had. 10/10 The ingredients were just perfect and it was so tasty.
  • French Toast $24 *just the toast! fruit and sticky bun are from above ^ But the french toast is so unique and fluffy – an absolute delight! 10/10 Highly recommend!

I would return to order the exact same items above but I really want to try everything else on their menu!

Pro tip: Make a reservation on Resy to avoid long lines like you see in the picture above. With a reservation you only really have to wait up to 5 minutes while they find a table for you verses waiting hours in line. That time could be better spent strolling the Bellagio conservatory instead!

3. Mon Ami Gabi – Paris Las Vegas

This French bistro serves authentic French classics for you to enjoy right across from the Bellagio fountains. It’s the perfect place to dine and admire the fountain show.

What To Order:

  • Chicken Liver Mousse Pate: with burgundy red wine mustard and cornichons. 10/10 Very tasty spread on the crispy baguette slices, the perfect appetizer.
  • Roast Salmon: butternut squash oil, creamed spinach, calabrian chili. 9/10 Tender as expected but nothing special flavorwise. Presentation was meh.
  • Trout Almondine: with french green beans, brown butter, lemon. 9/10 The fish was tender as expected, the presentation was meh.

Good To Know: Reservations recommended, but it is possible to dine without – we initially didn’t plan on dining here but had a change of plans so we just walked in and were lucky enough to get seated outdoors. You can make a reservation via Opentable here.

4. Bacchanal Buffet – Caesar’s Palace

Probably the most massive and expensive buffet experience – we dined here for brunch on Thanksgiving Day for $69.99 (7:30 – 11am) . Dinner would be $79.99 (11am – 11pm). You get 90 minutes to dine.

  • Regular Brunch (Thurs – Mon 9am – 1pm) $64.99 per adult not including tax
  • Regular Dinner (Thurs – Mon 1pm – $79.99 per adult not including tax

The Bacchanal Buffet was completely renovated as of 2021 (it got a $2.4 million glow up during the pandemic closure) with spacious dining areas lined with glass and stone textures and a more natural ambiance.

This enormous buffet features 10 kitchens cooking different cuisines, 9 live action stations, more than 250 menu items – there’s something for everyone.

Good To Know: Reservations are strongly recommended at this most famous buffet in Las Vegas. There is a virtual wait list on Opentable.com but there’s no guarantee of entry for individuals on the wait list or walk ins. Dress code is resort casual! Check out their website here for more information and to make a reservation.

5. Buffet – The Wynn

The prettiest and most charming buffet – from the carnival like window awnings over the food selections to the illuminated columns and ceiling and the soft lantern lights. The bright and airy ambiance of the atrium with live palm trees makes for a comfortable and relaxed dining experience.

Brunch and dinner classics are served daily: The buffet features 16 live-action kitchens serving more than 120 savory dishes and desserts. Each buffet experience is limited to two hours of unlimited dining.

  • Daily Gourmet Brunch (8am – 1pm) $52.99 per person plus tax
  • Daily Seafood Goumet Dinner (1pm – 9pm) $74.99 per person plus tax
  • *prices subject to change during holidays, holiday weekends, and peak periods. Children 3 – 9 are half price.

My Dining Experience: I decided to splurge for a dinner experience here since I opted for the cheaper lunch option at the Bacchanal Buffet. We tried almost a little bit of everything. The crab legs were smaller than I’ve had in other places but it was still pretty good.

The diverse selection of food from various cuisines and the desserts were a feast for both the eyes and stomach.

Good To Know: Walk-ins are accepted but the line can be insanely long and take hours before you can dine. Making a reservation for priority seating with a pre-payment is the best way to visit. Dress code is resort casual! Check out their website here for more information/priority seating & pre-payment.

6. Blackout – Dining in the Dark

This was a unique dining experience that is exactly what the name of the restaurant implies. The dining area is pitch dark – you cannot see a single thing. Your server will guide you to your seat, and instruct you how to locate your drink and utensils.

There are seven courses and each course is placed in front of you with specific instructions on how to eat it without giving away what it is – the fun part is guessing what the ingredients are in each dish. It makes for a fun discussion topic during the entire dining experience. At the very end you get to see the menu and compare your guesses.

Obviously, phones are not allowed, anything that has a light beam or flicker needs to be put away. So I don’t have any photos of the food or menu- it’s to ensure the element of surprise for future diners. This may be the one time in a very long time that I didn’t take any photos of what I ate!

Price: $89.95 per guest for a 7-course dinner

Good to Know: Open Thursday – Monday, Closed Tuesday – Wednesday. Reservations recommended on OpenTable.
