    Looking to go out for a romantic birthday dinner, maybe in the 10pm timeframe on a Friday, so a little later.

    Want a good steak( probably filet mignon ), not terribly overpriced though, and a very nice view or very quiet romantic setting. I don't care about wine selection or kobe beef selections. Might go for some cold-water lobster tail too though.

    I loved Alize' for the view and ambiance, best I've ever encountered, but want something a tad less pricey and more of a steakhouse menu instead of french. I usually opt for cafe's so I don't have a great deal of "high-end" LV experience. Thought TOW was way overpriced and overrated the one time I tried it. Mon Ami Gabi was great but again french and we are eating there another night.

    Was thinking about trying Binion's Steakhouse downtown, used to eat at the downstairs cafe ($3 steak special decades ago) a lot; never tried the Steakhouse - but I've read some less than sterling reports about it. Don't want to risk a clunker on a bigtime birthday.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure about the romance of it but the view from Oscar's @ The Plaza isn't terrible if your thinking Downtown.

    You can't beat the view from Top of the World at the Strat. My wife and I ate a dinner there while on our Honeymoon. Best views of the Las Vegas Valley....the food wasn't too bad either. Steaks are around $50 each...

    Of course, YMMV

    Prime at Bellagio has a great view and ambiance, but it's pricey. About $75/person without wine. Hope this helps

    Eiffel Tower? I love it there so romantic. Really, can't be beat in my opinion. I think they may have a prix fix menu if you go early. I know they entice you to come in earlier by guaranteeing a window seat.

    mIX? I know they are up on Restaurant.com.

    Binion's Steakhouse (Downtown) has great views (either of the Strip in the distance and mountain views. It's Old School with great service.

    Thanks, any others?

    TOW at Strat actually didn't impress me much and was overpriced. Prime is overpriced too as a filet alone is $68 w/o sides. No way you can keep it to $75/pp there. Eiffel is french, similar to Alize'.

    My husband and I always eat at Binion's Steakhouse. It has wonderful food, great service and the view is very nice. It is really old school and nice. We have never had either bad food or service. Hope you enjoy your trip.

    Another vote for the top of Binions, ate there last trip and it was the best filet mignon I've had. The view is nice and service is great and the prices are really not to bad.

    Binions is good. Very dark (in a good way) which creates a nice romantic environment. Last time I went I had the deep fried lobster tail. Only in Vegas . . .

    Hugo's Cellar (across from Binions) in the 4 queens is also a good option. Your lady gets a free red rose too. The place is more lit & slightly louder than Binions, but the food is great, the salad cart is like no other, and the steaks are good.

    I like Binion's also. However, I keep thinking that somebody on VMB said that it was closed for a short time for renovation.

    Perhaps I am confusing it with another restaurant.

    However, it would not hurt to call in advance.

    forgot to mention, there is no view at Hugo's Cellar. It's in a basement.

    I've only been to Vegas once, and I kept hearing about this restaurant. I played a fair amount over at 4 Queens but yet never could find the restaurant, and maybe because its in the basement is why. Is it not very advertised in the casino, or did I just miss it?

    Tender Steakhouse at Luxor is surprisingly good and should be near your stated pricepoint for filet (not Wagyu/Kobe) without wine. Decor is typical steakhouse - dark leather and white tablecloths.


    Charlie Palmer Steak at Four Seasons offers a tasting menu for about $50 which is excellent, but the featured entree isn't always beef - so that may not work for you. Decor is upscale steakhouse.

    Neither of these restaurants offer a view.


    Enjoy!

    After all of the good reports on Binions, I might be headed there next time I'm in vegas.

    Binons is good with a great view, however I really like Second Street Grill at Fremont and Emblers at the Quad.

    Range had a great view of the strip. Close enough to people watch.
