Anniversary Dinner in Vegas
Okay, the anniversary is coming up and I am getting the room comped (no I am not a big spender, it is at the Orleans).
Any recommendations for solid dinner places. My wife can be picky (I can be a little bit too, but I am more open to new things than she is). Any help would be appreciated.

How much you looking to spend?
My wife and I like Craftsteak (MGM) a lot, where it's possible to get a good hanger steak at a reasonable price. They also have an extensive wine list. (FF, here we come!)
We go every year.
A couple of FFs ago, we went to Shibuya (also MGM) for a teppanyaki dinner so good it made Kobe seem like Jack in the Box. They use Prime beef and have a number of Japanese beers, sakes and some great desserts as well.
We'd love to go every year, but at $260.00 for the two of us, we'll have to save the next visit for a special occasion.
Congrats & have a great time.

Depends on what you desire. Truly, Las Vegas has become a go-to for some of the worlds most renowned chefs. CraftSTEAK is amazing. You really can't go wrong there. Just know that everything on the menu is meant to be shared, so dont be afraid of the $16 side dish, there is plenty to share. Shibuya is fantastic and definitely worth the wait if you're too busy *celebrating* (winkwinknudgenudge) to schedule a reservation... but you should really schedule a reservation anywhere you go that's high end. And don't forget to ask about the dress codes. Even if you make a reservation, they WILL shoo you away if you don't have a tie, closed toed shoes, or whatever they're expecting.
Rum Jungle has fantastic Brazilian food. They're so known as a club, sometimes people forget they are a fantastic high end restaurant before the DJs start spinning. If French is your pleasure, Fleur de Lys at the Bellagio is worth the drive. You can get out for under $100 a person and it's a Hubert Keller establishment. That man is such an arrogant dick that it has to be good. If I recall correctly, Aureole is right there in Bellagio, also. I know they have a three or four diamond rating and that's where the Wine Angels are. Fix is pretty awesome if you're looking for some straight bourgeois grilled meat. We spent $15 on a caesar side salad when we went. Three years later, my husband maintains it's the aboslute best plate of rabbit food he's ever consumed. Also, he thought Kobe beef was overrated until we had the sliders there. That made him a believer and he's never questioned my preference for paying that much for a hamburger since.
That's all I got for now. Maybe one of the foodies will step up.

Gracias for the thoughts. Fench stuff can be scary for my wife since she is picky. Personally, I would love to go to Fleur De Lys at Mandalay, Le Cirque, or Joel Robuchon.
Rumjungle is solid, and I like it. We have been there numerous times. Craftsteak is one I was looking at, along with Stripsteak, and the fine dining restaurant at the Orleans (we have a $50 dining credit there with our reservation). She already has the spa time set up at Bellagio, so I dunno.

Craftsteak is delicious. Do it.
There's a restaurant across the street from Bellagio that has outside seating that was decent. I believe it's in Paris. You can do the romantic route that way. I'd rather go to Craftsteak, but if you want brownie points, look into it.

Mon Ami Gabi- Paris Hotel....I like this place alot. Secondly, Sunday nights bill at Craftsteak with $800 minus the tip. EXPENSIVE!!!

Morton's Steakhouse at Paradise and Flamingo. Tell them its your anniversary when making the reservation. Best $100 you'll spend, trust me.

between Fleur de Lys and L'Atelier... go to L'Atelier. i've been to both and trust me when i say that there's a very VERY good reason why i keep going with Robuchon.
aside from the other places mentioned, check out...
Picasso @ the Bellagio
B&B @ the Venetian
Kat's parents just got back and they really enjoyed Sinatra at Encore... they are Nob Hill freaks so that may give you an idea of where their personal tastes lay. they also came back wanting to go to Botero at Encore, which looks really kick ass.... oh, since they stay at the Wynn and hardly ever leave that whole complex, they've also been to Switch, which seems pretty cool and something you may want to check out... basically, check out all Encore has to offer. everything is new and stuff, so be among the first of us.
