Diner Reviews
  • "This was the second Craft I've eaten at, after the Craft in LA. Craft LA was sublime, while Craftsteak Las Vegas was merely excellent. I know it sounds weird to call something "merely excellent," but that's how I felt about the meal. Everything was VERY good, but there was not a magical spark. I absolutely felt like I got my money's worth, however, and I especially recommend the braised short ribs, which were as good as advertised."

  • "Nothing in particular I can fault, just didn't think the meal lived up to the prices. The food certainly wasn't poor or even mediocre, just didn't leave me wanting a return visit. A bit stuffy for my taste."

  • "Every time I go to Vegas I eat at Craftsteak. The food is always perfectly cooked and the service is top notch."

  • "This is our second time to Craftsteak and it was just as good as the first time, two years ago!! The steak was perfect. My wife's scallops were also perfectly done. The service was attentive and friendly; great waiter. I would recommend this as one of the best steak restaurants I have ever been to."

  • "Visited and stayed at the hotel. Brought three kids with me and had no problem ordering off the menu. no kids menu of course. Staff was very friendly and accommodating."

  • "Our experience at CraftSteak was awesome. The service was top notch. Everyone, from the hostess at the front to the sommelier to the servers, were so nice and helpful. The side dishes were very good, and the steaks were perfecty cooked. It was a great experience for our first visit!"

  • "We go to Craftsteak almost every time we are in Vegas, it never disappoints. The best dish on the menu is the shortribs--my son loves them. The Wagyu tartare is also a gem. I have never eaten anything there that was less than fabulous."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Simply outstanding in every way. We,started out with a selection of oysters. We then had an off the menu roasted bone marrow appitiser. Then, my wife nad I could not decide, we shared the ribeys, the wagyu shirt steak and the 24 hour short rib. all were outstanding. the best short rib I have ever had, and the best steaks other than in Tokyo's NY Grill. finished with chocolate soufle. We have already made our next reservation."

  • "Food and atmosphere was very good, though the service left something to be desired. Definitely not what I expected from such an upscale restaurant. My lobster bisque appetizer arrived just minutes before the entrees arrived. This left me rushing to finish my soup before my steak cooled too much. At most any other nice restaurant I've been to, with a mishap like that, they would have taken the bisque off the bill, or at least offered a complimentary dessert in apology. But the waiter didn't even offer an apology. It was rather disappointing. The steak was good, though not great. For the price paid, I expected a little more. Did not compare to the Top of The World at the Stratosphere."

  • "The food and service were incredible! Our steaks and sides (assorted mushrooms and risotto) were cooked to perfection. We're just sorry we were too full to order the highly recommended monkey bread for dessert."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Having grown up in Chicago and living the majority of my life in the Midwest, I believe I know a good steak. Craftsteak was highly recommended, but I took it with a grain of salt. What a pleasant surprise when your meal exceeds expectations. Everything was top flight (salads, sides, drinks, etc..) and the steak was absolutely amazing. And we didn't even go for the high end Wagyu beef. Can easily say it is in the top 5 steaks I've ever had and has an argument for the top spot. If you want a steak when you're in Vegas, this is it, period. Excellent service to boot."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The food was superb! We wanted to do the tasting menu, but it would have been so much food, so we opted to order a la carte. We got the tartare, lobster bisque to start and then surf and turf and flat iron for mains with a side of assorted mushrooms. We were stuffed, but couldn't pass up the monkey bread dessert. All the reviews said it was to die for, and it was!! Definitely worth the cost! Would go back and try the tasting menu at so e point."

  • "Not what I assumed at a Steakhouse in Vegas. Steak was improperly cooked, and the waiter questioned me. This was after the entire MGM apparently lost gas and we waited for around 45 minutes to eat. No apologies offered. For a Steak at that price, I expect to be elated."

  • "Was a little expensive but so worth it! Will for sure dine there again when we are in town!"

  • "I was looking for somewhere nice to take my wife for our anniversary and Craftsteak did not disappoint... We had a party of four and two of us took the waiter's recommendation for the Chef's selection. It was a much better deal than the a la carte offerings and gave us a better variety for sampling. The ambience was modern and classy. Staff was professional and friendly. Steaks were excellent though I would recommend against getting a roasted steak done well. It was a bit on the dry side. Dinner for two was $300 so not within my budget for a regular spot."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The wait staff was outstanding and the food was excellent. Our drinks never got lower than half full. She ordered a NY strip and I the 2 1/2 lb lobster. We loved everything. Highly recommended although be aware it is pricey."

  • "My Friend and I split the filet mignon which was delicious. The duck however was too chewy and not very enjoyable, not what I'm used to. The service was wonderful, and everyone was very helpful."

  • "My wife and I wanted a romantic and tasty dinner for our 10yr anniversary and we got it. The surf & turf and flat iron was delicious. Great presentation, cooked as ordered, savory, a foodies expectation."

  • "We had been to Craftsteak about 4 years ago, and had such a great experience that I wanted to go back. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. We had a reservation, but were seated in the area by the bar with a view of people walking through the shops. Not romantic. We were quickly reseated. So no big deal- but just a note, save the crappy seats for walk-ins. Our waiter came to take our order (Joe H?, Team #4). He was apathetic about his job. Took our order and never saw him again until he brought the bill. However, the assistant servers were very attentive. My filet was wonderful, the fresh bread divine, but my asparagus was plain and overcooked…and at $15 that is just not ok. Chocolate soufflé was good. Won't be back though."

  • "What a terrific meal - Being more of a seafood fan, from Oysters to Calamari to a main course of diver Scallops - outstanding. Exceptional wine list as well"

  • "We had eaten at Craftsteak once several years ago and remembered it as being outstanding. This time, not so much. First, there was so much confusion as to how to order. Due to our waiters' recommendation we went with the option to choose our steak and allow the chef to choose the first and third courses. Although the food was plentiful, it was just ok. The waiters assured us that we would have their very best dishes. For appetizers we had a shrimp cocktail, prosciutto with figs, Caesar salad, and a plate of tomatoes with olive oil. The steaks we chose were just ok and more rare than medium - sides were not memorable. Desserts were good, but nothing memorable. With a bottle of wine, our bill came to almost $600. Way overpriced!"

  • "Food and service were stellar. We will definitely be back again."

  • "Very expensive and mediocre like everything else in town. A nice experience, to be sure, but nothing special for the money. And what's this wagyu (not Kobe, now, for goodness sake) beef at $200+, pleeeeease..........."

  • "Craftsteak was absolutely amazing! Our servers were outstanding - attentive, helpful and efficient. The food was cooked to perfection. Eating gluten free was easy as most items were already gluten free (once you get past the heavenly smell of the bread served before the meal that was of course, gluten full). We liked the family style sides so we could share and try a variety of dishes. We had a lot of good meals in Vegas, but this was our favorite."

  • "The filet and ribeye were amazing - cooked perfectly: seared the right amount on the outside the right amount of pink on the inside. I will definitely go back!!"

  • "From the moment you are seated until you walk out, memories are made of the experience. Selecting Chef's Choice brings surprise after surprise. Steaks and sides were fantastic. They are sandwiched between appetizers that tease what is to come and the decadent desserts that complete the memory. What is especially enduring is watching expressions of our first time guests. They did not have a clue."

  • "Booked our reservation via internet from England for 20:45 arrived on time, informed table was not ready offered either to sit at bar or wait outside as an older person I do not like sitting at bars so chose to wait outside although this was our choice I did not feel welcomed to the restaurant, however once seat the experience changed we were introduced to Marvin and the other staff who were all very attentive and helpful. Service could not be faulted, food excellent my steak done to perfection, wine list extensive but very affordable in comparison to the same level of restaurant in th UK. This is our second visit to Craftsteak the first two years ago and the experience remains excellent."

  • "If you're looking for a steakhouse that breaks the mold, but retains some of the traditions, you'll love Craftsteak. The dining experience is fantastic, minus one thing - I found the tables a bit too close to each other. In every other respect, the waiter service, visual elements, food plating, etc. were all top shelf. Salads and appetizers were outstanding, in particular the seafood sampler. The cerviche-like lobster salad included in the sampler was amazing! For a main dish I had the scallops, which were the most buttery, perfectly cooked morsels I've ever eaten. Others in our party had steak and duck. Everyone raved and couldn't wait to share their plates. For side dishes, the stand-out was the white corn grits."
