    Hi

    Great evening at Charlie Palmer on Saturday evening. The Cut of the Week was a roasted striploin and the whole dinner was quite amazing. Our group of 6 guys arrived at Mandalay Bay and while we had some issues with finding the restaurant, we did manage by asking for directions.

    The Maitre d' accompanied us to a section of the restaurant with larger tables, away from where the other guests were. Good move on his part as we became a bit unruly in the last 30 minutes of our evening there.:eek:

    We all took the Cut of the Week which comes with "bottomless glass of wine". The wine is paired and with the appetizer, we had an Italian Pinot Grioggio, about 3 glasses each.

    With the main (sides were green beans and smashed potatos), some had 3 glasses and others 4 of a red Spanish wine. They left the last bottle on the table for us to serve ourselves.

    The dessert was some peanut-chocolate mousse cake. It tasted just like a big giant Reese. Very good.

    We left the restaurant after about 3 hours.

    We all really liked our evening and service was very good. One issue is that the "bottomless" part is not really bottomless. At some point, you don't get more wine. I think they assess about 1 bottle for 2 patrons and they did us a favour by bringing a fourth one.

    So, is it a place to get drunk on the cheap? No. But for $48 for 3 courses with paired wine at a four star restaurant, it is an amazing deal.

    We eneded the evening at Mix Lounge at TheHotel, where we admired the view and drank happily.

    Thanks for posting your review. :nworthy:

    It sounds like everyone in your party enjoyed the meal. Charlie Palmer is our current favorite steakhouse.

    Next time, if you arrive by cab/limo, have driver let you out at the Four Seasons entrance to avoid the confusion and wandering around MB. Unfortunately to walk to Charlie Palmer from either Mandalay Place Shoppes, the tram lobby, or the main MB Hotel entrance, it is a bit of a hike past the MB registration desk and down the back hall to the stairs/elevator for the Four Seasons public areas.
