Has anybody eaten there? It's in Planet Hollywood. Sounds like a cheaper option than Steak.

Not yet, but now that you've mentioned it, I probably will.

I did try Hubert Keller's place at Mandalay Bay. It was good, but not really good enough for the price. The $100 burger was absolutely not worth it. In general, I give them a 10 for presentation and a 7 for food. Don't get me wrong -- presentation is important -- but for that price I expect the food to be better.

If you're going to spend 3 figures on beef, I'd recommend Craftsteak in MGM Grand. I had the domestic wagyu filet (10 oz filet for $110). Best steak I have ever had, by far. Totally worth it. I was comped at the time but I would totally be willing to pay it myself. I ordered it blue rare -- I'd say that if you like your steak cooked more than rare it might not be worthwhile (once you cook away all the marbling, what's the point? You may as well get the cheaper cut)

For a reasonably priced burger option, I'd recommend Holstein's in the Cosmo. Great burgers, great chicken wings, and I love their spiked milkshakes. Looks like it would be a good place to watch a game too, although I've never done that.

How did I miss this when I was there??? The Drunken Monkey shake sounds like it's right up my alley!

It's been a while, but if I recall correctly it includes some foie gras and/or truffles or something. Still not worth it. The burger without the add-ons is a lot less.

I tried to eat there last nite. 2 hour wait. With platinum, 45 min wait. Walked over to Paris and ate at Gordon Ramsey Steak. Cheapest steak was 49. I was at Gordons steak place so ordered it. Comes with nothing so ordered 13 asparagus and 13 potatoes to round out a good meal. It was ok but not worth 80 bucks. Used my total rewards to pay for it

I agree 100% that it is overpriced even for Vegas. Seems like Caesars has gone almost all celebrity restaurants, but it is working for them. LeArtists steakhouse at a Paris was better and cheaper but was never full like GR's places are.

You only get priority at Burgr with diamond. I've never had to wait more than 15 minutes, usually immediate seating. Gordon Ramsays steak is wonderful if you spend the money. Best steak in my life was their American wagyu rib cap Oscar style.

None of this stuff is cheap, you pay a 25-50% strip tax if not more.

Ate at Burgr in early December. Sunday night at about 10:30 PM. My friends are both diamond so no wait.

Had the farm burger with truffle Parmesan fries. My 2 friends each got a milkshake and shared an order of fries. You could almost do 1 order of fries between 3 people if everyone is having a burger also. They couldn't finish either of their $9 milkshakes, but then again they were just wanting some late night ice cream and those things are huge. I hadn't eaten since arriving in Vegas at 4 PM so it was a good solution for all 3 of us. My Burgr and fries clocking in at $30 will prevent it from becoming a staple eatery on my Vegas visits but I might go back every 3rd or 4th Vegas trip.

We ate at Gordon Ramsay steak 2 days later. I'll say it's better than my local Indian casino steak house but below my local $40 supper club steak house. Bread bowl was awesome and quickly devoured. I had a few beers, $7-$8 isn't bad compared to my buddies $6 Pepsi and the table $7 bottles of water. We shared a potato purée side dish and it really was enough for all 3. Friends got the beef wellington and the waygu filet. I got the bone in ribeye. The steak was simply underwhelming. You're paying 50-100% extra for a name attached to the food. But I guess the beef wellington is very good, so if that's your thing go for it. Will never go back for steak.
