    You might want to use the search function at the top of the page. There are a lot of "best steakhouse" threads.

    PRIME at Bellagio
    I can not even describe what my wife and I were feeling at that first moment. It was crazy!

    Yes your going to get outstanding service, fancy french art on the walls, and the best view of the Bellagio fountains ...and you'll be sure to pay the high price of it too ...but you will also experience an amazing mind blowing steak!

    You will experience everything you described at Prime except for the food part. Its the most overrated steakhouse in Vegas and even though the food is good its not up to par compared to the very best steakhouses in the city.

    My recommendation would be SW, Cut or Carnevino but it really depends on what type of steak you are planning on eating.

    You should first decide if you're looking for a dry or wet aged steak. That will help narrow down the field.

    craftsteak

    I've always been a steak aficionado and a delicious steak dinner is one of the top highlights of every trip I've ever taken to Vegas. There are lot of options, and it's hard to go REALLY wrong.

    That being said, Craftsteak was the BEST meal I've EVER had in my entire life, hands down. Yes, atmosphere, service, wine, sides were all excellent, but that 12oz Wagyu flank steak was absolutely heavenly. I didn't even pick up my knife... it was that tender. I've only eaten there once, so I can't speak specifically about the filet, but I can only imagine it is on par with everything else in that restaurant.

    You said you don't care about price, which is cool. Just FYI, wife and I had salad, entrée, dessert and a couple of glasses of wine for about $270 after tip.

    Oh, and if you're downtown, Vic & Anthony's is the *second* best steak I've ever had :peace:

    If you're going purely for steak flavor, IMHO it would have to be Craftsteak.

    I've had Craftsteak, Prime, SW Steakhouse, Jean Georges....for steak flavor Craftsteak wins.

    if you know the difference between a filet and a rib steak or bone in ribeye, and have decided you like the filet best, then so be it. if you are not sure, go have one at a nice place in your home town where you have had a filet, and then see what you think.

    after deciding on the cut, then you need to look for usda prime, and you need to see that the steak was aged. dry or wet aged, and length of time aged, is probably splitting hairs.

    imo, american wagyu, grass fed, natural, blah blah blah is not relevant to your search for a great steak.

    i am sure you would love the bone in ribeye at delmonico, and also at N9NE, but prime and aged gets you into the top one percent of the steaks out there.

    I am not a fan of Craftsteak. i find very little difference in the steaks at most of the top steakhouses in Vegas. I live here so I go to at least one a month. I suggest you try a couple while in town and judge for yourself. I would try SW, Prime, and Delmonico.

    My 2 cents: Vic & Anthony's (I like my bone-in ribeye medium rare.) Craftsteak, a good steak, but the steak tartare is what I truly enjoyed, there.
