    Venetian is a great resort- so much to do and so many food options. The rooms are all kind of mini "suites," so unless you upgrade to an actual suite, most of the rooms at V and P are pretty much the same. Never been disappointed.
    Whenever I stay there, I always:
    Buy a Fat Tuesday (190 Octane)
    Buy a few beers at Sin City Brewing
    Eat at Public House, Grande Lux, Lobster Me, Johnny Rockets, Pizzeria Da Enzo and sometimes Delmonico

    Our next trip in a few weeks we'll be celebrating two family member's birthdays at TAO; heard good things about it but only been once a while ago and can't remember much about it.

    V&P are fantastic resorts. So much to see. Can't say I've consistently (or hardly ever for that matter) won there, but my family has always had a great time. My next trip we (sadly) won't be staying there but I'm sure we'll be back in March or April.

    Best of luck!

    Grand Luxe is one of our favorites, great food and service with reasonable prices . Bob

    If I didn't live in democracy - and could dictate lodging solely on my wants - I'd be at V&P.
    I love the mini-suite rooms and the casino plus the dining options.
    Others in the manse are joined-at-the-hip to Paris.
    So there.

    What I like about the Venetian is the food court. It allows you the option of having a semi-cheap bite without spending $50 a person.

    Just going to chime in here, our first stay at the Venetian is coming up in a couple weeks, but we typically like to hit a couple of the restaurants there. Grande Lux as mentioned before is a great stop. I can 100% recommend their Jambalaya as well as their asian wonton nacho plate. For a great dinner experience, I definitely recommend Tao if you haven't been. We enjoy the ambiance as well as the cuisine. Look for the Sea Bass appetizer or the lobster wontons. Amazing stuff!

    Delmonico, Morels, Bouchon, Grimaldis. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Delmonico has not only the best food on the property, they also have the best whiskey list in the country. Morels wins best all-around for breakfast, lunch and dinner excellence, followed very closely by Bouchon. Some will swear by Cut or Caravino, but Delmonico has the best steaks.

    I don't have a ton to add, but my trip is so close I can't resist! :)

    Grand Lux is one of our go-to's, the menu is huge and they have something to appeal to everyone. They also have a great "express breakfast" (think mini-buffet) with hot and cold items, omelet bar, pastries, etc. For the property its also reasonable price all around.

    Food court is reasonably priced (for V/P) and generally a step above other food court fare.

    Of course, there are also the great restauarants mentioned above. We tend to skip those ourselves, since we drink all day and I rarely feel presentable enough to go to an expensive meal come evening. :)

    There are a ton of great restaurants in the Grand Canal shoppes. A lot of people seem to like Grimaldi's, we found it very disappointing, but maybe it was just our isolated experience. Our pizza was soggy and blech.

    Absolutely love the resort, just got back last Sunday. If you want food porn from V/P, I have some pics from Bouchon and Grimaldi's on my TR. Here's the bar at Delmonico's, you can google the whisky list...it's over 40 pgs.

    Their prices on the Pappy are outrageous. If they lop the 1 off in front of the 15 and 20 year, then they are on par with most everywhere else. $300 for the 23 year is beyond ridiculous. It's no where near twice as good as the 20.
