    My wife and I will be staying at TI and have tickets to Absinthe at 10:00. I would like to go to a good restaurant somewhere in that area. Probably a steakhouse or Itilian. It's for our anniversary so not really worried about the price. Also what time should I make reservations for to make it to the show on time? Thanks in advance.

    Phil's Italian Steakhouse at TI would be convenient and meets several of your asks/wants.

    Head across the street to Palazzo and have dinner at Delmonico.

    Any of the Venetian steakhouses would be a good choice (CUT, Delmonico, Carnevino).

    Maybe Carnevino since it also has very good italian.

    As for timing, I'd say set the reservation for 7. You can probably cut it closer (as late as 8 depending on your speed with courses and how fast you eat), but its a special dinner and you don't want to feel rushed. A 7 o'clock meal lets you take your time, enjoy the food, and still have plenty of time for a fairly leisurely walk over.

    A place that is not Las Vegas, but I wish it was.

    I'll add the usual SW Steakhouse at the Wynn. I would recommend reserving a 7:00 or 7:30 lakeside table, so you can catch the lakeside "show" at night. You have to eat their Chili-Rubbed Double Ribeye, because it is absolutely delicious.

    On the night of a show do yourself a favor and have dinner at your hotel. When you have to visit 3 properties for make ready/ dinner/ show it can complicate the evening. Your wife will also appreciate the ability to freshen up upstairs following dinner. SW and Cut across LVB are better restaurants, so try them another night of your stay. Being pressured for time on a dinner and show night ruins the experience.

    For Italian near Absinthe, I might suggest Trevi at Caesars. Get a table up front, great place to people-watch! :)
