    Hello!!
    I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a Restaurant that isn't too expensive, but nice that my husband and I can go to for our Anniversary?
    Thanks,
    Carol

    Where will you be staying and does getting there (travel expense) factor into it?

    What's your budget for the dinner?

    What type of cuisine? Steakhouse? Italian? Asian?

    We're here to help if you give us a bit more info.

    Need more info to give specific recommendations, but for an anniversary I would want something nice. I would consider one of the many restaurants at Mandalay Bay that are on Restaurant.com. Getting a deal on a $50 certificate for something Aureole might give you the chance for a fine dining experience without breaking the bank.

    Hubby half here. Off the top of my head, The Range at Harrah's, Hugo's at The Four Queens and the Steak House at Circus Circus are all adequate for the occasion.

    My husband is a big steak guy. My fav is Italian. Budget??? Hmmm...I dunno. I know things in Vegas can be so freakin expensive. Lets go with like $125 for dinner. We are staying at NYNY.

    Mon Ami Gabi, Circus Circus Steakhouse, Binion's Steakhouse are usually the names tossed out when looking for a cheaper celebration meal.

    I suggest taking advantage of prix-fixe or pre-theatre menus. For example, you can dine at Sage $49pp 5-7pm. Circo $49 until 6:00pm, Sensi $50 until 6:30pm, Michael Mina $65 5:30-6:00pm, Le Cirque $72 5:30-6:15pm. Picasso $75, and Jasmine has one too.

    Is $125 including tip? And I assume that is with wine?

    With that being said, Gallaghers without a doubt. There's a lot to be said for dining at your property, having a glass of vino, and heading back to your room.... No cabs, no lines, no problems. Their steaks are very good, and priced reasonably. You should be able to each have a nice dinner with drink for $150..

    Do it. :thumbsup:

    This is an underrated point on this message board. Eating somewhere close to your hotel can save you a long walk or an expensive cab ride.

    Maybe Envy with a Restaurant.com certificate.

    If you're going to make a trip downtown, how about Hugo's Cellar at Four Queens?

    Gallagher's is a great option. My buddy and I ate there in February and the total came to $170 before tip. We had around $45 entrees and added a side along with a couple drinks apiece (whiskey for him and Macallan for me so I know that wasn't cheap).

    I figure without drinks $125.00 should be no problem.
