    Our absolutely best was Prime at Bellagio.

    We have used the travelzoo voucher at BLT steakhouse three times and it was a great comparative value. Each time they have allowed us to use the $208 value anyway we choose. We have also found that almost as soon as the offer expires a new one is posted.

    Oops! Forgot that one. We had our big extended family too-doo there last December. We were planning on doing this at Billy Bob's, but Boyd, in their infinite wisdom (see Stardust, implosion) closed it! We talked about the Angry Butcher, the replacement, but wanted more of a "known" for that evening.

    First of all, it's NOTHING like the original. If you're looking for the ambiance of an old-school NYC steakhouse, you will be disappointed. (OTOH, I kinda remember hearing that the original may have moved, so all bets are off.)

    It's excellent. Steaks and sides are perfectly prepared and presented. Service is first rate. No pressure at all to quit lingering over coffee and drinks and vacate. I don't remember a single complaint about the food or service!

    It's more upscale than Ruth's Cris, and lacks the pretentiousness of the absentee celebrity chef places.

    That's the good news.

    To call it spendy is an understatement! For 6 of us, the bill was well over a kilobuck, including wine and other drinks, of course.

    It's well worth it, assuming it's within budget.

    ate a few times at homestead at CP, very good but also pricey...BLT at ballys was good and they give diamond and 7* complimentary deserts and such. Alder and Birch at orleans is my pick currently for price, taste, service, everything...Gallaghers at NYNY was so bad, my uncle picked it out and wouldnt let us pay when we were done...

    You should be able to, but if not, if you're staying at a CET hotel, just charge the balance to your room.

    We've eaten at Old Homestead twice and enjoyed it but it was just super pricey. If we hadn't had our diamond voucher, a dinner for 2 with one glass of wine and 1 after dinner drink would have been the most expensive meal I've ever had.

    I second Gallaghers at NYNY, when that end of the strip was our home base, Gallaghers was hour go to steakhouse.

    Didn't see it mentioned here but Carnevino at V/P has been pretty consistently excellent for us.

    I don't like to charge things to my room unless I have no RC's left. You have to pay tax on the meal where you don't have to if you pay for it all with RC's at the restaurant (in most cases).

    On my last trip to Harrahs LV, (which was last week) I charged meals to my room and taxes were deducted at checkout when I paid with RCs.

    I second Top of the World, had an amazing steak there in May. The views are also great, and if you have dinner you don't pay to get to the top. $200 is about the same for wife and I.

    I believe I have eaten in every steakhouse in each major casino. For some reason, the one that has left a lasting impact on my taste buds is Brand Steakhouse at Monte Carlo. I know they are currently closed/rebranding however I do hope that they come back with the Brand. Something about their Tomahawk Steak and their Prime Rib has me salivating.

    I believe Brand is gone for good. A new steakhouse is opening at the property this fall. https://vegas.eater.com/2017/5/24/15683916/bavettes-steakhouse-monte-carlo-park-mgm-opening-october-2017

    What about Hugo's Cellar (downtown)?

    Like you - we try to do a nice steak every visit, and have just booked the Cellar for late August.

    Haven't eaten there (so can't recommend it yet), but we did find a lot of good reviews for it and wanted to include a possible Downtown option for the OP.

    I classify Hugo's Cellar as more of a "date place". The atmosphere is romantic, and all of the women are given a rose. I have $350 in comp at QQQQ but have resisted going to Hugo's Cellar until I have a non-relative of the opposite gender to accompany me . . . (May be a long time for that ;)) The food is good, but for pure steakhouse joy, I'd have to recommend Andiamo's at the D next door IMHO, the 28 oz. bone-in rib-eye ($48) is a winner. I'm gonna start bringing one home every time I can . . . .

    If I had to choose one place on the Strip and one place downtown, I'd go with Carnevino at Palazzo and Andiamo's at the D. They're the two places where I had the best cooked and most flavorful steaks.
     
    Finally making back to Vegas (fingers crossed)!!

    Yeah I was looking at burgers and the term "Kobe" came up and looks like the SW Steakhouse has authentic Japanese Kobe.....at $220/4oz!!! I'm not able to swing that much for steak but maybe in the future I'll try a Kobe beef ....

    I ate at Craftsteak about 7 or 8 years ago and thought it was very good.

    This seems to be a YMMV kinda topic. Both Gallagher's and BLT Steak were underwhelming for me (I didn't even care for the popovers I kept hearing about). Joe's Steak and Stone Crab in the Forum Shops had amazing seafood, but the steaks had a burnt grill taste to it and mine was well past the medium rare I wanted.

    One of the best meals I had on the Strip was the Osso Buco at Tender and the filet my wife ordered was spot on as well.

    Been to quite a few (not SW or Prime yet) but Del Frisco's would be best for me

    You should probably first determine if you like dry aged steaks or not as that may shift the answer.
    I personally love dry aged steaks, so I do not like Ruth Chris, but I'm a big fan of Carnevino. Since you like Ruth Chris , you may prefer a wet aged steak.
    Joe's may be a good option for you. Thought their bone in rib eye was fantastic. And they may dry age (not sure) but if so it's not significant so may be a good fit for your tastes.
