Brand - Monte Carlo
What a wonderful meal!What made this steakhouse special, besides the food, was our outstanding, yet non-pretentious server, Bryan.
There were some unusually named items on the menu, but Bryan was eager to describe each one according to our questions.
Highly recommend the baseball cut Filet (on the bone). It was outstanding, and prepared exactly right.
The sides were delicious, especially the wild mushrooms and the mac 'n cheese, and just the right amount for our party of 4.
Don't forget dessert, the Nutella filled donut holes were out-of-this-world!
There are so many great steakhouses in Las Vegas, but Brand gave us not only the great food, but the wonderful experience to go along with it.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd visit & can't wait for the nextOur 2nd dining experience was just as awesome as the first! The Tomahawk Chop is to die for, best steak ever! Those lollipop chicken wings start you off right, so yummy~ you will be pleased if you order those and finish with the cake dessert. outstanding6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenceThe dining experience was most noteable and the food most exquisite.

Sides were amazing also. Price is not so bad for a Vegas strip steak house.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGemThis was a wonderful meal
The service was excellent as was the presentation
We will defiantly go back5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Excellent Upscale SteakhouseI decided to take my girlfriend here for dinner on our last night in town as we were staying at the Monte Carlo. The meal did not disappoint and we left very satisfied. The noise level wasn't too high despite being seated in a open area next to the casino, which provided us with some nice opportunities to people-watch during our meal.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Lying HostessI went to the place at 4:30pm, check it out and ask for 6:30pm table to be farther away from the casino. I dropped off my companies at the hotel front entrance and went to self park. By the time I walked back I saw the my friends has been placed at a table on the edge of the casino. I asked the hostess and she said my friends asked for a table closed to the casino so they can watch the Blue Man Group parade. Of course my friends didn't ask for it. AJ, the waiter has later explain they are one staff short and the manager didn't want to open the back area. If the hostess wouldn't explain that to me, I would be glad to accept it. She didn't have to lie.
Food were good, the service by AJ made up for the poor performance of the hostess.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprise taste in casino atmosphereIt was louder than I would have preferred, but I soon forgot about that after the appetizers arrived. The good taste parade continued all the way through the wine, main course, side dishes and desert. This made for a surprise neighborhood gem for me.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winnerWe make it a point to have dinner here each time we visit Las Vegas. The food is always good, and we have never been disappointed.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMa great night, food was excellent,a great night, food was excellent, server, alix was outstanding5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedWent there with some friends and everyone was thoroughly impressed by the food. It was a good choice for staying the hotel and I would tell anyone to go. It doesn't have the "stuffy" steakhouse atmosphere. There is music playing in the background. Also it is right on the casino floor, but we were seated in the back so I am not sure how loud It was near the floor. Not the best steak I have had in my life, but it was very good and worth the price. Would return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a customer there forTook a customer there for dinner and we had a great time, good cocktails, good service4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Dining ExperienceThis restaurant has it all. Great music, ambiance, amazing food and exceptional service. Prices are a bit high but expected in a casino. A must visit!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest vegas steak house!!!!!The food was fantastic! We enjoyed every bite from our great filets to our wonderful sides of Mac n cheese, baked potatoes and green beans!! The caprese salad was to die for......just wonderful.....can't wait to eat there again and again when we're back in town!!!!
One issue is not having some type of divider between the casino and the restaurant. Too many people on a Saturday night passing through and gawking in..... Maybe during less busy days its okay but it was a take away from the great food experience we were having.....the only plus to it being open was getting to enjoy the Blue Man percussion parade!!!!!! That was great!!!!
This place needs to advertise more as it is a real find!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMakes you fullFast service and quality food for the price. I would go back for sure, one the better deals for steak on the strip; great for parties of 3 or more since they offer larger cuts to share. Since the restuarant opens to the casino, great scenary walking by.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBoyfriend and I went for dinner.Boyfriend and I went for dinner. Had the ultimate steak for 2 with green beans and mashed potatoes. Food was great along with fast service. Thank you4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic! TheThe food was fantastic! The filet was very flavorful and tender. the lounge and overall ambiance was beautiful. It felt very private even though almost every area was occupied. Our server was wonderful; friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable. My ONLY complaint is the attitude of the hostess; it was as if we bothered her when we approached her post when checking in for our reservation. But after that, the overall experience was great! I highly recommend this restaurant!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, strong drinksGreat service, strong drinks and delicious food make Brand one of the better steakhouses on the strip. However the bar and dining room are marred by loud tvs and aggressive dance music that's far to loud. Otherwise a must.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and wines.Excellent food and wines. A bit noisy since it's open to the casino.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. A little priceyGreat food. A little pricey but not too bad. Brian, our server, exceeded our expectations for quality service.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was veryThe food and service was very good but the prices are expensive. You probably can get the same Meal at half the price at a ma and Pa restaurant. you always pay more at a tourist destination.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the hotrocks, filet mignon,Had the hotrocks, filet mignon, mac and cheese, and green beans. Th "hot rocks" tasted good, was definitely a little over priced for what you get, but it was more of an "experience" thing, so I was not dissapointed, My steak was served at exactly the temperature I ordered it and was absolutely delicious. Service was prompt and friendly, would definitely recommend a reservation.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a wonderfulMy husband and I had a wonderful time while dining in your restaurant. The service was spot on, the server(s) were so polite and made up feel special and the food! WOW - the flavors still ring on my tongue. Thank you so much for the grand time. We will brag to whomever listens.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific steaksWe shared a Tomahawk cut steak. Very flavorful. Two house-made sauces, we couldn't decide which was best. French-onion soup was terrific. I like a good cup of joe with my meals - if you do too you should know that they don't have cream for the coffee, only milk.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
