    My family and I have been dining at the Cortez Room for over 50 years. We go back to the days of the El Cortez. We usually celebrate birthdays there, its a family tradition. I celebrated many times in my 20's and this time it was for my 70th. Always good service and superb food. Of course the bone-in prime rib has always been my first choice and I've never been disappointed. This time was no different.... the best in Las Vegas by far. The Cortez Room is a hidden gem and I will be back for my 80th birthday (If not before) Keep up the good work!!!!

    This was our second time dining in the Cortez Room and the Filet Mignon was once again cooked as ordered and had a very good flavor. The three of us enjoyed our large salads with homemade blue cheese dressing. One of us had the garlic mashed potatoes and loved the flavor, one had french fries and I had the hefty baked potato with butter, sour cream, chives and real bacon bits. The bread basket was full of excellent pretzel rolls, fresh baked bread and homemade cheese crackers. Our waiter provided excellent service! We will definitely eat there every time we are back in Las Vegas! One of us had the Creme Brulee and said it was wonderful!

    Terrible experience Although the menu said potato was included with the filet, I was charged for it, $6and the salad that was supposed to be included was $8 The filet, at $32 was away over priced for the quality of the meat...very fatty inside, Been brining folks here for years, but was my LAST visit!!! Never again!!!

    The Cortez room is a hidden Las Vegas Gem. A great steak and seafood house, at incredibly reasonable prices, but the quality is top shelf all the way. Service is incredible and ambiance is very nice. Don't let this one slip away from you.

    I had won a free dinner for 2 at the Cortez room at the Gold Coast casino, while playing in a slot tournament. They gave me a voucher for up to $100 to spend for dinner for 2. The prices were so reasonable that we were only able to use $73 of it. My dinner for 2 turned into a dinner for 3, with the 3rd person paying only $32 for a great meal. From the ribeyes to the short ribs to the bacon wrapped shrimp....everything was cooked to perfection. All 3 of us left full and satisfied, with no room left for dessert. We also all agreed that we would return to this nice, reasonably priced restaurant.

    Eating at this restaurant in Las Vegas is like going back to the 60's or earlier. The menu doesn't veer into anything modern. The salads are your basic iceberg lettuce with tomatoes, with no fancy dressings offered. That's fine. It is cold and crisp. We always get the prime rib, because, where else in this end of Las Vegas can you get a nice, albeit somewhat fatty, chunk of beef, as rare (or not) as you requested for under $20. It is always too much food, so it's hard to finish the accompanying potato side.

    Menu not very imaginative. But, food very good. Filet was cooked exactly as ordered and all deserts were excellent. Overall.....food and atmosphere was very comfortable at a reasonable cost. Service was "efficient"....however, our waitress had the personality of a lump of clay. Maybe she was just having a bad night.

    Dinner on Sunday the 17th was good. We were seated in just a few minutes. Our party of four all decided on the house specialty of Prime Rib. I ordered the "Cortez Cut" and it was big to say the least. All things considered, I should have stayed with the smaller cut like my friends had. There's were all much more tender than mine. I had a lot of scraps on my plate after the meal was done. Fat etc. The baked potato was good as was the salad. The breads were just so-so. Not hot or fresh, just dinner rolls.. Drinks were good and a bit pricy but such is life. The tab for the night with tip came to $103.00 for all of us. That's really good. I would go back but I'd rethink the cut..

    We were on our 50th Anniversary Memory Trip to Nevada and California and were eating out nightly. We have eaten here for years and always found it amazing. We love it so much that we ate here once at the beginning of the trip and another time at the end of our trip. I have to say the last night was the best ever. My husband's prime rib was done to perfection and my chicken dish was awesome. I ordered a Caesar salad that was probably the biggest in memory. Service was impeccable but not overdone. And when the bill arrives, my jaw always drops. It is the most reasonably priced fine dining place I can recall. The restaurant is located in the Gold Coast Hotel which is off the Strip a it but worth the travel.

    The staff was friendly and efficient. The 22 oz prime rib juicy and favorable. My wife had the chicken breast stuffed with cab and it was dome very well by the cooking staff. Order the mushrooms you won't regret it.I wish the mixed green salad pieces had been served with smaller pieces, but that's minor. The room its self is clean, quiet and understated, but comfortable. I wish it were open for lunch. It would be the kind of place one could go for a one on one business meeting. When we were there, there were no children probably due the prices. I consider that a plus. There is a lighter outer dining area which might be improved with a piano.

    The food was average. Cooked very well and was tasty. I ordered the special for that night which was steak (sirloin) and two very small lobsters. My complaint was with our waiter who was slower than molasses. Have no idea where he would disappear to but he would be gone for a very long time then come back and apologize and then disappear again. Everyone else seemed very efficient and attentive to their customers including the OTHER waiters and waitresses and there assistants. We have gone there many times and this was our first bad experience. We will go back again but will request a different waiter.
