When visiting Las Vegas, you can dine at some of the best restaurants in the world but be prepared to make reservations well ahead of your trip. Less expensive options are easy to find, such as in food courts in casinos and hotels, and a wide range of chain and fast food restaurants can be found scattered along the strip and elsewhere.
In this post, I’ll highlight some of the restaurants I visited in Las Vegas. Other restaurants can be found on my main page for Las Vegas. FYI: None of the restaurants on this post required reservations.
At the Aria, Bardot Brasserie serves up a nice selection of classic French favorites. We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had lobster bisque, escargot, and a goat cheese salad. Everything was delicious and we left satisfied.
Hard Rock Café
I know, I know. Hard Rock Café? Well, we wanted comfort food and decided to pop in for breakfast. We were surprised by the quality of the food and loved the service. I wasn’t expecting such a good breakfast from the Hard Rock.
In the Piazza San Marco section of the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, we stumbled upon Canaletto. They serve good Venetian cuisine with friendly service. We had seafood linguine and capellini pomodoro.
barMASA is a sushi restaurant at the Aria. I was looking forward to eating there but was unimpressed with the quality of the sushi. None of the rolls we ordered stood out, and everything seemed quite ordinary.
The Shoppes at Mandalay Place is where you can find Hussong’s Cantina. The original Hussong’s in Ensenada, Mexico, invented the margarita.
We went for lunch on a Friday afternoon and started off with roasted corn and tortilla soup. The corn wasn’t cooked all the way (parts of it were still frozen) but the soup was nice.
For the main course, I had fajitas while Marisol ate flautas. We both enjoyed our meals but have had better. For the record, we didn’t try the margaritas.
