    I've taken numerous clients here for business dinners and I have never had a complaint. It's run well, great wine selection, and is lit beautifully. It ticks every box for a great dinner in Las Vegas. But, the food is the most outstanding part of the experience. The menu, published daily, is always great. You won't be let down.

    We have dinned at Craftsteak multiple of times, usually due to attending a concert or event at the MGM Garden Arena. The food is quite good, the service was even better. If you are in the MGM then I would recommend dinning here. However, I would not go out of my way to dine at Craftsteak as there are many other Amazing Steakhouse on the strip such as CUT in the Palazzo, Gordon Ramsay Steak in the Paris Casino, or SW Steakhouse in the Wynn are all better options in my opinion.

    One of the best restaurants we've been to. Food was absolutely fantastic and service was top notch. I think our server's name was Alisha's and he took great care of us. Money bread was perfect way to end the night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    Craftsteak has always been one of my most favorite restaurants to come visit in Vegas. I have to say the food is still decent but not as fantastic as it used to be. I had the lobster bisque which was good and the porterhouse which had very good flavor but not no real WOW factor. The two sides we ordered were ok but not memorable. Now for the service level, things have changed here. There is suppose to be 2 to 3 people waiting on each table but almost all of them were non existent. In fact they did not start paying attention to us until I mentioned I was going to rip them on open table for such bad service. I am sad to say I won't be back, this was my favorite place but it's time to move on.....

    Plenty of food for a group of 6 hungry guys, and every single thing was excellent. Our waiters were attentive, had great suggestions, and were exactly what we needed to have a truly memorable time. Maybe a little pricey for just a dinner, but if I'm ever celebrating in Vegas again, I'll be back in a heartbeat.

    On our last night at MGM, 4 of us went back to Craftsteak. We ordered 1) surf and turf with lobster 2) surf and turf with scallops 3) roasted chicken 4) Steak - side dishes were - Scalloped potatoes, risotto and mixed mushrooms. Wine and before dinner drinks. I would have to say, all the food was very good. Did not understand the cherry tomatoes in the risotto, but still good. What makes a meal great is not the food, but the whole client experience which includes the waiters. It's this attitude about them, that doesn't sit right with me. Our waiter took our order, not in a friendly way. Don't get me wrong, he was not rude, sent the wine server to bring us our bills and never said thank you when we left. Not ompressed.

    Would like to commend our server, Marvin, and his team. Service was great and food truly delicious. Scallops were the best, being flavorful and very tender. Same with their filet mignon steak --- cooked to perfection. Everything we ordered, from the charcuterie plate, tomato soup with goat cheese, to main entrees were just the best! Hostesses outside can be more friendly and accommodating, though (hence the 4 stars).

    The wait staff was very helpful and attentive. The Waiter gave good advice regarding what to order. We were worried about the size of the steaks and he suggested sharing a steak he particularly enjoyed. We followed his advice and the Kobe steak was fantastic. Even the side dishes were a treat.

    Wanted to try this place since we wanted a good steak and the owner Tom. Service, app and desert were all great. The steak miss the spot badly. We ordered the American Wagyu. The steak was cooked correctly but lacked flavor and did not have the correct texture with Wagyu we had in the past. The steak was more of a $15 dinner dish. I left disappointed for the price we paid and we did not satisfied our steak craving.

From appetizers to entrees to the desserts their menu you is flawless and will be the best dinner you've ever had as well. Ask for Marvin and you additionally will have second to none service

    Very loud. We had to ask to move tables to try get somewhere quieter. Due to cost was expecting quiet and relaxed not loud and having to shout to be heard. The waiter, Dave was brilliant. Excellent food recommendations and polite and friendly. The sommelier obviously felt he was better than us even though he was serving! Felt it was extremely expensive for what it was but saying that I'd recommend it. The food was fantastic and plentiful and the service except the sommelier was outstanding.

    We went to Craftsteak last week while visiting Vegas, what a great time. Not only was the food excellent but the service was above and beyond. Our servers had great personalities and we could not have asked for better service. The food was not only great but a also an extremely good value. When the server put our leftovers in a bag for us he gave us some sets of plastic silverware. They thought of everything.

    All of the side dishes were made with local vegetables and herbs so everything tasted fresh. The surf and turf with lobster and filet was the perfect size. The side dishes were huge portions - definately split 1 side between 2 people! The service was friendly (even to the two kids in our group). This is a fantastic restaurant if you are looking for something special and upscale in Vegas.ve
