    I see that the prices are pretty close to the top steak houses
    How does it compare to them? (CUT , SW , STK , Prime, Craftsteak... ? )
    (Never been to another Smith & Wollensky at all )

    Food is comparable. Best aspect is location I really enjoyed the time that I sat outside there and ate while we people watched the strip

    Depending on what you're looking for sitting inside can be really nice too. You'd never guess you're so close the chaos of the strip. Nice and quiet and laid back inside.

    I've only eaten at a couple steakhouses so I don't have a lot to compare it too but I did grow up on our own beef that we raised. T-bones that you could cut with a fork, it was quite rare for anyone in my family to use a steak knife. Didn't know at the time how spoiled I was.
    That said, the Filet and Lobster plate I had at S&W was hands down the best meal I've ever had.

    So was it as good as the steaks you knew from home?

    I really like smith and wollensky... My friends and I used to hit that place every trip... we have been trying different places the last couple years though. I have to say I have never had a bad meal there. I know some of the places can be hit or miss at times (which really sucks when you are paying $50+ for a steak). The location is nice and as others have mentioned you can sit outside... but personally I wasn't a fan of being outside right on the sidewalk. The other plus they have is they are open later than most typical steakhouses in casinos.
    All of their steaks are dry aged in house except the fillet which I believe is wet aged. Again, out of 6+ visits, not one complaint about the cut, taste or done-ness.
    Sides are all good, but I think the sides at N9ne and Flemmings are better.
    The seafood tower is awesome and I think very reasonably priced for what they give you.

    I was wondering about S&W for a group dinner. Is it conducive to 10-20 guys on a weekend? Or would the atmosphere be too quiet? I feel like being in one big hardwood room would carry sound so much we may be disruptive to other diners.

    In my experience at S&W the weekends are pretty crowded and I would say louder than other fine dining restaurants I've been to. If you have a large enough group, I believe they have a couple private dining areas as well (but I don't know if you have to pre-order the food for the private event and not order off the menu). Either way I would suggest you make a reservation.
