From the air, Las Vegas emerges like a carpet of twinkling lights unfurled across the dark Mojave Desert. Las Vegas’s culinary landscape is as diverse and far-reaching as the city itself. From celebrity chef-driven concepts on the Strip to flashes of local talent on Fremont Street, experiencing the definitive restaurants of Las Vegas means venturing to its many neighborhoods, seeking out cuisine from both legendary and emerging chefs, and discovering the food that speaks to the history and the future of the city. These are the 21 restaurants to do just that.

About the restaurant
With a mission of applying a global approach to traditional American dishes, Sparrow + Wolf embodies the playful, unexpected ethos of Las Vegas. The Chinatown restaurant is notably helmed by chef Brian Howard, a longtime fixture on the Las Vegas restaurant scene who cut his teeth working at restaurants on the Strip before bringing his talent to a less touristy neighborhood. Here, his creativity comes alive in the form of everything from udon noodle bolognese to a miso peanut butter banana split topped with black sesame chocolate sauce.

About the restaurant
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s massive restaurant outside of Caesars Palace brings the excitement and energy of its namesake show to the Las Vegas Strip. Prior to opening Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay already operated four restaurants in Las Vegas, but this one is by far the most opulent. The menu features plenty of Ramsay luxuries, such as beef Wellington, truffle lobster risotto, and sticky toffee pudding.

About the restaurant
Situated in Las Vegas’s affluent Summerlin neighborhood near the soaring peaks of nearby Red Rock Canyon, La Strega is an airy, glamorous Italian restaurant from chef Gina Marinelli that was awarded restaurant of the year by Eater Vegas in 2019. From artichokes served with preserved lemon and dill yogurt to kale pesto bucatini with Yukon potatoes, diners can expect fresh, vegetable-forward fare. Fun fact: La Strega translates to “the witch,” and nods to this show up in the form of menu item names, such as the witch’s garden salad with vegetables and whipped chickpeas.

The food and service were great. The Truffle pasta was outstanding. The pizza and salad were great as well. Wine selection was OK and it could be better. Overall, the experience was outstanding.

About the restaurant
It’s all about the art of the tasting menu at Partage, a sleek, compact space that just might be the only French restaurant in Las Vegas’s Chinatown neighborhood. Choose from a three-, five-, or seven-course menu with optional wine pairings, or savor individual entrees such as a seasonally rotating pithivier that has in the past included oxtail with seared foie gras. A private dining room and chef’s table experience are also available. The former features unique, customized animations on the table.

Summerlin

About the restaurant
With its rustic brick walls and olive green tufted bench seating, Honey Salt’s atmosphere evokes a farm-to-table spirit that feels miles away from the Las Vegas Strip — because it is. The Summerlin area restaurant from James Beard Awards-nominated restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla serves lunch and dinner (plus a popular weekend brunch) with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. One standout menu item is the Biloxi buttermilk fried chicken sandwich topped with creamy slaw and served with a fresh Caesar salad.

About the restaurant
Savor every day brunch and lively Latin dinner fare at acclaimed chef Lorena Garcia’s Chica, a Best of Las Vegas award-winning restaurant inside the Venetian. Garcia’s menu brings together flavors from Peru, Brazil, Mexico, and other Latin American countries in a dimly lit space with pops of jewel-toned decor. Popular dishes include warm bunuelo donuts with berries and white chocolate dulce de leche for brunch and Peruvian ceviche with market fish, chile, onion, and sweet potato in the evening. But the must-order is the colorful arepas basket, in black bean, beet, and cilantro flavors, a distinctive riff on the Latin cuisine staple that has become Garcia’s signature dish.

Very pretty restaurant with delicious options for brunch. Make reservations ahead of time as this restaurant is very popular. We shared one order of benedict and an order of bunuelos, enjoyed some pressed juice, and coffee. That was the perfect amount for two people and the restaurant made it easy to share the dishes. Would definitely return to try more on the menu as everything around us looked so good!

About the restaurant
Named after the Michelin star decorated chef, Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace is the sibling location to the original in Paris. The restaurant has earned a slew of awards, including a Top 40 Restaurant in the U.S. award from Gayot.com and a Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Award for four years in a row. Diners can expect French cuisine at this elegant space, which offers sweeping views of Las Vegas’s replica Eiffel Tower across the street. Where better to enjoy seared foie gras and black truffle on brioche and Muscovy duck with gnocchi and cabbage?

About the restaurant
This expansive restaurant in the shadows of the Las Vegas Strip, which was selected as an OpenTable Diner’s Choice in 2015 and 2016, shares a parking lot with the world’s largest gentlemen’s club, making its late-night service an understandable offering. Whether you’re dining before or after midnight, the massive Mexican menu satisfies with everything from tableside guacamole to filet mignon tacos to a wide selection of vegan options.

About the restaurant
If you’re longing for the glamor of vintage Las Vegas — red tufted seating, waiters in tuxedos flambeing bananas foster tableside, a booth once frequented by Frank Sinatra — you’ll find it at The Golden Steer Steakhouse on Sahara Avenue, the oldest steakhouse in the city. Founded in 1958, this just off-Strip fine dining restaurant has a long tradition of serving wet-aged steak and classic Las Vegas accompaniments such as shrimp cocktail and oysters Rockefeller. For a special occasion, split the chateaubriand.

We had an amazing dinner last night. They were very friendly and accommodating with a last minute change. Money well spent and enjoyed every bite. Just sad we didn’t have room for dessert! Next time.

About the restaurant
The Black Sheep opened in 2017 to much acclaim, thanks to a modern Vietnamese menu from chef Jamie Tran, an Eater Vegas and OpenTable award-winning chef who is set to appear on season 18 of Bravo’s Top Chef in April 2021. Since its inception, the southwest Las Vegas restaurant has drawn crowds to its minimalist space outfitted with large grayscale desert imagery. The menu is creative and approachable. One must-try dish is hot chicken — Tran’s take on the Nashville trend — served on honey toast with pickled cucumber.

Dine beside lush gardens and a tumbling waterfall at Mizumi, a Forbes Travel Guide four star Japanese restaurant at the Wynn. This scenic space sets the stage for fresh seafood from chef Min Kim. Sip sake and share bluefin tuna tataki, miso-glazed toothfish, and goldeneye snapper with black truffle. Like many restaurants at the Wynn, Mizumi also offers an extensive vegetarian menu.

This is not only one of the best restaurants in Vegas. This is one of the best restaurants in the country. Everything was exactly as it should be. Special mention to our server Eric, he was fantastic.
