Ten Great Places for Filet Mignon in Las Vegas

August 13 is National Filet Mignon Day, so we figured it’s time to crank out our gratuitous list of the best places to get our favorite Las Vegas steak. “Filet mignon,” for the record, means “dainty fillet” in French. We like it anyway.

1. Old Homestead at Caesars Palace

Old Homestead is our pick as the best steakhouse on the Las Vegas Strip, in a city plump and juicy with great places for steak. Beyond the impeccably prepared steaks, the sides are so good, they’ll turn you Mormon. Or something.

The filet mignon at Old Homestead even comes with a little pedistal.

2. STK at Cosmopolitan

There’s nothing that’s not spectacular here, so it follows the filet mignon would follow suit. Oh, and it’s in the Cosmopolitan, so what more do you need to know?

We're 61% sure this is the filet mignon. If not, you'll get over it.

3. Koi at Planet Hollywood

Koi isn’t a steakhouse, but that doesn’t preclude it from having a spectacular filet mignon. It’s Kobe-style beef with a unique presentation, and once you try it, you may never have the sushi again.

Koi's meat melts in your mouth, if you know what we're saying.

4. Prime at Bellagio

We’ve never actually visited Prime, but everyone raves about it, so we’re including it here. As it’s at Bellagio, it’s pricey, but we hear it’s worth it, and can’t wait to try the filet mignon ourselves soon.

In lieu of meat, have this photo of the world's largest bidet.

Looks like one of the Bellagio’s sprinler heads broke.

5. The Steakhouse at Circus Circus

The Steakhouse at Circus Circus has been wooing palates for more than 30 years. The meat is aged for 21 days in a glass-enclosed aging room, then prepared in a demonstration kitchen complete with an open-hearth mesquite charcoal broiler. To die for.

"To die for" is a figure of speech. You can just order it.

6. Palm Restaurant at The Forum Shops

Why don’t you hear more about this wonderful restaurant? We have no idea. The food is delicious, the service top-notch, and the values are pretty great. Ask about the prix fixe lunch menu, which happens to include a filet mignon, with the option of it being immersed in seafood.

Several kinds of OMG.

7. Lakeside Restaurant and SW Steakhouse at Wynn

The Lakeside Restaurant and SW Steakhouse at Wynn share an executive chef, David Walzog, so you can get a wildly delicious filet mignon at either establishment. It’ll cost you, but it’s Vegas, and you only live once.

Filet mignon is taken from the "psoas major" of the beef carcass. Sexy, huh?

8. Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris

Whatever you might think of world-class-ranter and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, there’s no denying his steakhouse at Paris has won over legions of fans. Reservations are tough to come by, so plan ahead.

Make sure to stop by the kitchen to say "hi" to "Hell's Kitchen" season 10 winner, Christina Wilson.

9. Cut at Palazzo

Chef Wolfgang Puck is behind this offering, named the best steakhouse in Las Vegas by numerous publications and critics. The steaks are dry-aged for 35 days, and the swanky surroundings add to experience.

It gets a little boring just looking at photos of meat, don't you think?

10. Andiamo Steakhouse at The D

Well, look who joined the party! This new offering at The D, downtown, is holding its own against the big boys on The Strip. Andiamo has the benefit of having a cozy atmosphere, a stand-out waitstaff and more value-oriented priced, especially compared to steak joints on The Strip.

Filet mignon first, Longbar second, craps third. It doesn't get any better than this!

So, did we leave out your favorite? Partial to Craftsteak at MGM Grand, Stripsteak at Mandalay Bay or a local’s spot like T-Bones at Red Rock Station? Let us know. That’s why we put that “Leave a Reply” link thingy down there.

    No love for the Golden Steer? Kinda hoping you’d list some places outside the tourist corridor.
