Caesars Palace has twelve restaurants (plus a superb buffet) to feed hungry guests, including two by Gordon Ramsay and its food court, two Starbucks, and a grab-and-go pastry store from renowned chef Guy Savoy. Caesars Palace Las Vegas has a wide variety of sit-down restaurants for you to choose from.
Mesa Grill (opened in 2004) was replaced with this upmarket Mediterranean-themed restaurant by celebrity chef Bobby Flay.
The 9,000-square-foot space, open in 2021, has bar and lounge seating. Squid Ink Fettuccine (38), Paccheri (rockfish, cherry tomatoes, saffron) (36), and “Market-driven whole fish and shellfish” are some of the Italian seafood dishes on the menu.
You’ll have to fork up $78 for a 24-ounce bone-in ribeye.
Buffet of Bacchanalia
The lavish Bacchanal Buffet, which just underwent a $2.4 million renovation, has established itself as one of Las Vegas’ top two or three buffets.
It’s expensive, but it’s the finest in town, according to USA Today.
More than 500 different meals are served at the Bacchanal Buffet, featuring nine “display kitchens” where chefs prepare the food. There’s a Mexican station, an Italian station, a Chinese station, a Japanese station, an American station, a seafood station, a deli station, a pizza station, and dessert.
Instead of the massive metal trays that we’ve come to associate with buffets, the Bacchanal takes its cues from the Wicked Spoon Buffet at the Cosmopolitan. If you can’t find what you’re looking for at this restaurant, you’re either too fussy or simply don’t know what you’re looking for.
The phone number for the Bacchanal Buffet is 702-731-7778. You may make reservations using the Open Table option on their website here:
Noodle No. 9 in Beijing, China
On your approach inside this Northern Chinese food outlet, you’ll pass some impressive aquariums. The virtually all-white décor will leave you speechless despite being classified as informal.
Braised pig belly and Xiao Long Bao soup dumplings are among the restaurant’s most popular dishes.
Tavern owned by Gordon Ramsey & Grill
It’s an English bar with a capacity of roughly 300 patrons. There are 36 beers on tap, and it’s touted as a “genuine” pub with a wide selection of brews. The offerings are burgers and salads, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and other comfort foods.
Yorkshire Ale Batter Fish & Chips and English Beer Steamed Clams are two of the restaurant’s signature dishes.
Mr Chow, if you’ll pardon the pun,
In addition to New York, London, and Los Angeles, Mr. Chow has outposts in South Beach and Malibu.
You realize it’s a high-end establishment when you enter the restaurant via private elevators from the casino floor.
Views of the Caesar Palace grounds and swimming pools may be enjoyed from the restaurant’s 250 seats. The Beijing Duck is the restaurant’s trademark dish.
Since the champagne trolleys at Mr. Chow’s other sites are legendary, the large drink menu includes a lot of champagne.
The $20 Chow-line “House produced peach foam with Moet & Chandon Champagne”, is listed as the “signature cocktail.”
Hell’s Kitchen, the show hosted by Gordon Ramsay
The second and much-anticipated new restaurant of the celebrity chef at Caesars Palace debuted in January 2018 and is located right in front of the hotel.
Three hundred people may be comfortably accommodated in the 8,000-square-foot building’s two bars and two dining rooms, which have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.
An appetizer of Scampi Prawn Flambé ($24) is one example from the menu; the classic Beef Wellington ($49) is another. The Crispy Skin Salmon ($21), for example, is served with Beluga lentils and shredded fennel salad with a citrus herb beurre blanc.
The NOBU Restaurant
On February 4, 2013, the Caesars Palace hotel’s new “hotel inside a hotel,” the NOBU Hotel, opened its doors to the public. As for the actual NOBU restaurant, it’s supposed to be one of the biggest in the world, covering approximately 12,000 square feet and accommodating 327 people. That’s a good thing to keep in mind.
Steakhouse Old Homestead
This is Caesar’s go-to steakhouse from the old days. This is Caesar’s rendition of a casino game. What are the costs? It wasn’t horrible to see a $27 item. It was, of course, a starter. Scampi with jumbo shrimp and beef tartare costs $94. At $58 a pound, the Colorado rack of lamb is an excellent value.
Samples from the rest of their evening menu, including:
The “Gotham” Ribeye Steak: 24 oz. $82
Shiitake mushrooms and buckwheat noodles accompany Atlantic salmon in this dish. $42
The Guy Savoy restaurant
This is the place to go if you’ve got the money and the inclination to eat some of the best French cuisines in the world.
Among the items on the prix fixe menu are:
One hundred and twenty-five dollars for lobster with heirloom carrots and chanterelles, with jus au vin jaune, and one hundred and twenty dollars for “Wild squab, pheasant, duck, foie gras and cabbage marmite, light game jus.
A separate caviar chamber is also available.
Brioche by Guy Savoy, which isn’t mentioned here since it’s not a sit-down restaurant, is located at Caesars Palace. This is a more affordable alternative. You may get “..delectable samples of this flaky French pastry filled with mushrooms, Parmesan and almonds, or sweet candied fruit and pralines” at the grab-and-go shop near the main valet area.
Coffee from the United States
This is the standard casino coffee shop, right in the middle of the main lobby. It’s directly to your left when you enter from the Strip.
It’s open around the clock. However, unlike the typical casino coffee shops of the past, you won’t be able to get a cheap steak and eggs deal here. You’ll have to fork up $23 for a basic meal of three eggs, bacon, potatoes, and bread.
The menu includes everything from burgers and fried chicken to tacos and pan-seared fish and shrimp n’ grits, and it’s all reasonably priced. Breakfast is provided all day long at this establishment.
Caffe Americano’s Cafe Americano’s Terraza
There are around 20 tables and a few TVs in this outside patio version, open 24 hours.
Korean fried chicken steamed buns, mini-calzones, steak sandwiches, and quinoa bowls are all on the regular menu.
As a counter-service eatery, the Food Network’s newest Strip location is located in the middle of the restaurant district, just across from Roa’s and Bacchanal Buffet. This is Giada’s second restaurant venture in Las Vegas, a fast-casual eatery. Since opening, her “Giada’s” show at the Cromwell across the Strip has been a big success.
Pronto, a new Italian-inspired restaurant, opened its doors in 2018. Forty different California and Italian wines are available by the glass at the Pronto Wine Bar.
Fresh-pressed paninis, salads, De Laurentiis’ spin on sandwiches with her lobster roll, gooey grilled cheese and antipasti, formaggi, and salumi platters are all on the menu for lunch and supper at Pronto.
The Counter Culture serves coffee and gelato right next to the order stand.
In the Forum’s food court
Even though there are no restaurants in this region, the newly renovated food court area provides many fast-casual eating establishments.
There are a total of eight eateries inside the Forum Food Hall. A Starbucks, Earl of Sandwich, Crepes & More, Tiger Wok and Ramen, Difara Pizza, Smoke and Sizzle (“All-American Barbecue”), and The Halal Guys are just a few of the restaurants in the area.
As of this update in December 2021, Searsucker is still shuttered, and word has it that it will reopen. When new information becomes available, we’ll update this post.
Described as a “modern take on American traditional comfort dishes,” Brian Malarkey’s restaurant has a laid-back, nostalgic American-style environment.
Located near the Omnia nightclub, it offers a wide variety of appetizers, desserts, and beverages to attract a late-night clientele in addition to the usual dinner population.
There’s a 38-ounce bone-in ribeye on the menu and “beer-braised short rib + horseradish + fried onions with pan sauce and butter potato,” which sounds delectable to us.
Other options on the menu include the grilled, crispy potatoes, beer-marinated skirt steak, and the pork butt whiskey apples, brussels sprouts, and prosciutto.
We’re On Our Way
The bakery of Dominique Ansel (Coming Summer 2022)
James Beard Award winner and Cronut creator Thomas Keller will launch a Vegas restaurant here in the summer of 2022.
Since-Closed Caesars Palace Restaurants
Original reviews of Caesars Palace restaurants that have closed down are shown here.
It’s Rao’s (opened in December 2006). In late November 2021, it will be closed
- Rao’s is another New York-based import. It’s a well-known Italian eatery in the area. This New York landmark, established in 1896 and featured on the Travel Channel, is the other Rao’s.
Some examples from the evening menu: Red or White sauces are available for Linguine and Clams: Manila Clams, Garlic White Wine Red Pepper Flakes Parsley $30 as well as CHICKEN SCARPARIELLO: Sauteed Bone-In Chicken, Italian Sausage, Hot & Sweet Cherry Peppers, Yellow & Red Bell Peppers, Oregano, White Wine Sauce. $36
- Mesa Grill: This restaurant first opened its doors in 2004. The facility will be shut down in November of 2020.
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay has had a long successful run with this iconic southern eatery.
It includes some interesting variations on typical southwestern dishes and a huge choice of tequilas. Signature delicacies include the lobster tacos and the tiger shrimp roasted corn tamale.
Mesa Grill is located near the sportsbook and the entrance to the Colosseum. In terms of attire, what should I wear? You’re told to “Dress Smart” on the webpage.
Some of the supper options:
Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon-Ancho Chile Sauce and Sweet Potato Tamales with Crushed Pecan Butter from New Mexico Spice Rub. $37
Caramelized Shallots, Sage, and Hot and Sweet Pecans accompany the CASCABEL CHILE CRUSTED RABBIT. $39.
- The Third Case of Serendipity
In what is now known as Hell’s Kitchen, a small structure formerly housed this upscale café.
Fancy and distinctive desserts like their frozen hot chocolate and a huge cake/ice cream/Oreo combination (named Treasure Chest) for $88. It was an import from New York City. A dozen scoops of ice cream were included and “edible gold” if you’d want your dessert to be adorned with precious metals.
- Michael Richard’s After a long wait and considerable anticipation, Michael Richard’s Central finally closed its doors in December last year.
There were several negative reviews about Central’s location in the lobby, particularly given their high costs. They featured traditional American comfort cuisine with a few modern twists, and they were open all hours of the day and night.
- Aristocratic Residency
The price of a cup of soup may reach $100, while a meal of seafood can reach hundreds of dollars. Soup with shark fins. From the bustling Caesars level, an elevator leads you to the restaurant on the top floor. A $5 Wheel of Fortune slot machine at 5 credits per spin at Empress Court’s meal pricing can quickly deplete your wallet’s financial reserves. Empress Court is known for its Cantonese-inspired seafood dishes. Market Price means that if you have to inquire, many things are “MP” or “Market Price.” The Birds Nest with Egg White in Coconut Milk costs $100. Every casino wants to get high-rolling Asian players to part with their hard-earned cash. I’m guessing these whales get a free meal here.
- In Japanese, Hyakumi is referred to (Closed May 2013)
What a sight: a tree. In the dining room! In addition, there are cooking stations in the Teppanyaki style. If you’re anything like me and have no idea what “Teppanyaki” style cooking is, consider Benihana your answer.
Besides sushi and fresh seafood, Hyakumi also offers a good selection of other Japanese dishes at a reasonable price.
- There is a bar called Munchbar (Which closed in August 2014).
More to my liking, since it offers the most affordable food in Caesars. I’m drooling over the “small grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato dipping sauce,” the “little snow crab hoagies,” and the “tiny grilled cheese sandwiches.” Plus, it’s hard not to like an establishment that serves its sandwiches with Cheese Whiz.
Located near the Forum Shops, Cypress Street Marketplace is a laid-back, food court-like environment. It has an Italian park vibe to it. Tex-Mex, burgers, Asian fare, barbecue, basic seafood meals, and more are all on the menu when you sit down at one of the nine stations. According to the chain’s website, a typical dinner at Caesars will set you back $15.
- Attractions on the Strip (Closed in the fall of 2017)
There is a beautiful view from the terrace of Caesars Palace’s new restaurant for families. Strip-side offers a wide variety of food, including wings, nachos, pizza, sandwiches, and more, and their all-day breakfast options.
- Strip-side Cafe and Bar Six milkshake glasses and six sundae types are available on the dessert menu. Each drink costs $15 at this establishment.
Aside from that, it’s not going to last long on this planet. In the “winter” of 2017-2018, Caesars revealed in April that a Gordon Ramsay-designed restaurant would be opening on the Strip.
- Patisserie & Bistro Payard (Closed in November 2017)
If you’re like my wife, you can eat a full meal just by nibbling on a variety of sweets and pastries, then this restaurant/bakery is just the location for you.
You may have a meal or take-out chocolates or coffee beverages at this location. They also have a traditional sit-down restaurant where you can eat your normal fare. Dinner options include braised short ribs for $30 and roasted chicken for $16.
- Romulus and Heracles (Closed in Spring 2018)
The Forum Food Court has a salad bar where you may build your salad.
- Wreck-It Ralph (Closed in 2020)
Bobby Flay’s “Bobby’s Burgers” has taken the place of this wonderful fast-food burger business, which serves exquisite salty, rosemary-and-olive-oil fries.
