    I recently lost a bet with a good friend and told him I would put aside $300 for a steak dinner on the strip. What is the absolute best place we can go with this budget? I plan on getting a medium priced bottle of wine. Thanks in advance....:peace::beer:

    I haven't been to half of the steakhouses on the strip but I can say that the two that I've enjoyed the most out of the ones I've been to have been Cut at Palazzo and Gordon Ramsay at Paris.

    I would say that Cut & Ramsay Steak are the best 2 meals I've had too.

    My personal favorite is also CUT, although I've been to a number of others that are nearly as good, including Carnevino and Delmonico.

    Price is trickier. There are two potential budget busters: wine and luxury beef. I've never ordered a bottle of wine in Las Vegas, but I've read repeatedly that markups are very high. You could easily spend over $100 on a "mid-priced" bottle.

    The other item is what I call luxury beef. In the last few years, a number of steakhouses have added specialty beef, such as Japanese beef (wagyu), Japanese-American hybrids, and meat that has been aged an insanely long amount of time. Taking CUT as an example, standard steaks may run around $60/person or so. Japanese wagyu will run around $150! CUT's menu is online at http://www.palazzo.com/uploadedFiles/Common/Dining/Fine_Dining/CUT_20121102.pdf .

    Have fun!

    Prime at Bellagio is the best dining I have ever experienced.

    TBH, $300 for 2 people with a bottle of wine including tip is going to be very tight. the cheapest bottle on the menu will likely be about $70. a medium priced bottle is going to be $150+. and the steaks are going to run $40-50 each plus sides, appetizers, etc. so you may have to lower your expectations.

    Go to tix4tonight and get yourself a same day dinner deal.
    Last year when I was in Vegas, Tix4tonight had 50% of total bill and pre fixe menu's....many different restaurants to choice from and they immediately made the dinner reservations for me at the time I chose. I think it cost me $10.00?
    I used them for The Range SteakHouse in Harrahs, which was fabulous, but sadly now gone.
    I'll be checking Tix4tonight out again this year.

    There at least a dozen outstanding steakhouses on the strip - each one is called "the best" by someone. It all depends on what you want.

    Some might like the very old school and not expensive steakhouse at Circus Circus, some want a trendy spot like Craftsteak, N9NE, or CUT. Some want the celebrity appeal of Gordon Ramsey... and there is even a steakhouse targeted at women: SHe.

    What are you looking for in a steakhouse?

    Just a great steak with a nice atmosphere. No need for the fancy Japanese beef or any frou-frou stuff. Just a good place where an old grade school and high school friend of mine can go and get a great steak with a nice atmosphere, and the ability to carry on a conversation without yelling across the table.....lol.

    Thanks. I appreciate all the help.:peace:

    If you've got a car the steakhouse at M Resort is fantastic. We go there nearly every trip.

    That takes Ramsay Steak out, but I don't recall Cut being too loud from memory and it's a great meal.

    I'd say SW and Prime would be my next choices other than my 2 favourites, but there are plenty of restaurants I haven't eaten at too.


    Or you could go Red Lobster and get a cheap hooker with the change :evillaugh

    I would say Prime or Delmonico for classic service and amazing steak with zero frou-frou stuff. Or Carnevino perhaps if you want Italian menu along with the amazing steaks - little more on the trendy side, but not too frou-frou.

    You will find all three of these on virtually every "best steakhouse on the strip" list.

    Hey Mike,

    I know you've probably been to the one in your home state but how about Ruth's Chris Steakhouse? I know its not a "special to Las Vegas steakhouse" but I have NEVER been disappointed at any of the different locations.

    My wife and I use to live in Houston and frequented the one there. We've been to the ones in Dallas and Fort Worth and now that we have moved back home to Oklahoma like the one in Rogers Arkansas.

    We may try this one (Vegas) in October but the only concern for us(and you also) may be the access because of construction on the old Imperial Palace....don't really know if its that bad...will have to check it out.

    The wine list wasn't listed on the Vegas/RC Steakhouse website, so here is their general all around listing for the entire chain of their steakhouse....just to give you an idea of what they've got.

    Good Luck!!!
