    A window table a bit before sunset and watch the lights come on. Food is OK, but the view is worth the price.

    Do you get a view from anywhere in the restaurant? We are probably going to do this on our upcoming trip. I see that you can get a coupon from one of those Tix4Tonight booths.

    Not so much. You really need to be seated next to a window. The way the place is laid out - you can see out, just not have a 'view' per se. We've eaten there, that I recall, three times. Enjoyed every time. The ideal thing would be to time your dinner to coincide with sunset and the lights coming on. Also, we never made reservations; just showed up and asked for a table. If I recall, we arrived there in the six-to-seven time frame.

    That being said, we probably won't be seeing Binion's again. Not that there's the slightest thing wrong with the place, it's just that having done the Fremont Street thing and dined at Binion's, we're pretty much over it. We can be entertained on the strip sufficiently, but Binion's was indeed worth the trip to that end of town. Even it's just a one off.

    We celebrated our anniversary there and they gave us what they called the occasion table. It was a table for two in the SE corner with windows on two sides. If you are seated in the center of the restaurant, the view isn't that special.

    Besides the nightclubs, I don't really know if a dress code applies much in Vegas, especially downtown. We have already seen guys with shorts, cut-off Ts and baseball caps at Redwood, which I consider a fine dining restaurant.

    Thanks!

    There was a show on TV a few years ago, I believe it was called Vegas Confidential? On that show I remember the manager wouldn't let people in who weren't wearing ties and/or jackets. Although I remember they were trying to change but I couldn't remember the outcome.

    As long as you're decked out in matching US currency, you'll be fine.

    There was a group of guys, last time we were there, wearing polos and shorts. I've always been in jeans and polo.
    I'm not entirely certain...just my thinking here...but Binion's might not be the sort of place that warrants a 'dress code'.
    Being honest, it may have been the place to dine, some years back...but I think there's a lot of places farther up the
    totem pole these days.
