    Staying at the Aria in December. Last year we ate at a few Buffets, The Heart Attack Grill and the sports bar in the Monte Carlo. Nothing overly fancy.

    This time around she wants to have a nice sit down meal somewhere. Care to offer a few suggestions? We probably won't go too far off of the strip in all likelihood.

    Where are you staying? And is the only requirement that you sit down or does she want a certain cuisine or atmosphere.

    Yes. A bit more info would be helpful - cuisine (or at least some "likes" and "don't-likes") and a ballpark budget will help us steer you in the right direction.

    That said, since you'll be at Aria, I think you could do a helluva lot worse than Sage. Great food, good service, good-looking setting and the $89 tasting menu is as close to "a steal" as fine dining on the strip gets, in my option.

    There have also been two very recent threads on Aria restaurants in the past week or two - do a quick scan of this forum if you want some other Aria options.

    I should given a little more information. She likes pasta dishes, chicken dishes, steak sometimes. She's a pretty plain eater.

    The Sage menu doesn't look too bad but salted beets and garlic soup is no drawing card.

    A friend said he had the best steak dinner he has ever had but couldn't remember if it was at the Venetian or not.

    Venetian/Palazzo has a few steakhouses. Does Cut, Carnevino or Delmonico ring a bell?

    Can't go wrong with Jean-Georges. A tad pricey but nice steakhouse.

    If you cab it to Wynn, SW Steakhouse has great steaks along with the atmosphere. Have a nice sit-down restaurant on the second night also at Julian Serrano (Spanish tapas at Aria), Mastro's Ocean Club (Shops at Crystals next to Aria), Matorano's (Italian at Paris), or Scarpetta (Italian at Cosmopolitan).

    You should go for brunch at Mon Ami Gabi at Paris for al fresco dining. Good food, view, and price.

    I was thinking MAG, not too fussy and even though the french theme may intimidate, steak frittes (steak with fries) will please very easily.

    Mon Ami Gabi in front of the Paris Hotel is very nice, reasonably priced and not too fancy. Go mid afternoon and ask for a table on the patio. There will probably be a short wait. It is very nice to dine on the patio and watch the Bellagio Fountain across the street. Get the Steak Frites, can't go wrong.

    My favorite is downtown, if you find yourselves there. Triple George, right across from the Downtown Grand. Very classy, awesome food, great wine, and a piano bar.

    It doesn't sound to me like you guys are really interested in the over the top, best restaurant in the place.....just a nice sit down dinner that isn't pretentious. I'm partial to the Wynncore compound and we really like Allegro and Sinatra. Both are not huge restaurants and have a nice feel to them. Allegro lets you look out on the casino floor at Wynn while you eat and Sinatra is tucked back into a quiet corner at Encore. Allegro is mostly Italian/pasta dishes including pizza and Sinatra is more of a steak place w/ a few other dishes including some pasta. Closer to home, you might find Samba at the Mirage a fun place to eat but it's a lot of food and I'm not that big of an eater at one sitting these days but if you two are, it might be a good choice.
