    Probably the best filet mignon we've ever had...just amazing. Perfectly cooked (med-rare) on the inside and charred on the outside, lean, lightly seasoned, and amazingly flavorful. The grilled asparagus and diver scallops were also great, but nothing to write home about. The buffalo mozzarella had a very tasty topping (not sure what it was. Possibly finely chopped sotto aceto bell peppers) and hazelnut pieces, but the overall flavor of the dish was not amazing (at least for a foodie). Not sure what was missing. The ambiance was nice, and the wait staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. There was a very drunk woman who had lost it at the table next to us, and they handled it very well (which included an apology to surrounding tables).

    After eating my way around the the US I can honestly say crafsteak exceeded my already high expectations for Tom C. Service was outstanding, timing impeccable, all food was served piping hot and seasoned perfectly. Steak temperatures were correct and drinks were delicious. My one ridiculous negative thought was I couldn't help but think the battery operated candles on the table were a little too 'dollar general' for such an outstanding restaurant. Well worth every dollar spent.

    My cousin and I wanted to splurge hoping that the food will be worth the price. Instead of individually choosing what we want, we decided to go for the wagyu special three course meal. The steak was phenomenal and worth every penny. The only complaints I have are the mushrooms. I like to eat them individually and not in a clump of one stalk.

    Didn't knock my socks off but good. I had the roasted Tbone. Medium rare and was perfect. The juice I'm the pan was the best part. Great cut of meat. Corn side dish was excellent, potatoes au gratin pretty good, asparagus just OK. Had a Crown Royal Manhattan the was really good. Bottle of Malbec was really good as well but could have been colder ( room temp is 68) . l'd go back again and try the filet.

  • Belated anniversary treat
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We absloutely loved the restaurant. It was our first visit there. I am a HUGE fan of chef Colicchio's and wanted to visit one of restaurants when we were planning a trip back to Las Vegas. The service was nothing short of superb and our head waiter was so very knowledgeable about the restaurant and it's history. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal although we felt the side dishes were a bit bland and could have used a bit more seasoning. Our steak was cooked perfectly and was absloutely delicious. I will definitely visit again and recommend the restaurant to others. The only thing they could have made it better would have been to meet chef Colicchio in person. I still hope to meet him one day.

    The best salads, we usually order 2 or 3 to start and one instead of cooked vegetable to accompany the steak. Cucumber salad, tomato salad and arugula are outstanding!!! The whole menu pretty much is great! Steaks are hormone free and delish! Don't pass up Dessert. Go! Go! Run!!

  • Disappointing Visit
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Although I've had great meals in the past, this last visit was disappointing. The steak was okay, but not as fantastic as I remembered it. Wine and sides were all good, but I come to Craftsteak for the steak (obviously), and I thought it was "okay." For what I paid, "okay" isn't going to cut it. I may come back next year but, if the result is the same, I'm going to have to reconsider my Craftsteak in Vegas tradition.

    Steak was normal grocery store quality (USDA Choice). Nothing special. Lacked seasoning very bland (salt, pepper.) Tables for two include one chair and a bench seat. Not romantic. Wait staff is pushy. Overall the experience is blah and forgettable if not disappointing. You leave wanting your wasted time back.

    My wife and I ordered the Chef's pre-fixe menu with the Waygu beef, and as if that wasn't enough, we had the pleasure of enjoying quite possibly the best flavors of every course either of us have ever tasted. This is the best menu we have ever had the pleasure of trying. Absolutely amazing!

    I was a bit skeptical of the whole celebrity chef restaurant experience, as I have eaten in some fine steakhouses all across the US. However, after visiting CraftSteak in Las Vegas, I begin to see why these chef's become celebrities. Our experience from walking up to the hostess stand and being seating within 2 mins of our reservations being verified, to the prompt attention of our head waiter and the introduction of the other two waiters helping him out at our table, the explanation of the menu and wine list all the way to the end of the meal was just fantastic. This is how dining was meant to be. There is no rush on the dining experience, our 2 hour meal was exactly the way it should be in a restaurant of this quality. Thank you!

    I usually order ribeye steak every steakhouse I go to. Has to be the saltiest and toughest ribeye I ever had. I understand it wasn't the priciest ribeye on the menu, but it wasn't the cheapest steak on the menu. Will probably will never comeback.

    I took business clients to dinner. 6 of us total. Large guys and we were jammed into a booth. With the various courses we had NO WHERE to put everything. We ordered a bottle of wine for the salads and another for the entrees. They were poured after we finished each course. Could not find anyone to help us. If the waiter came to the table he did not stay long enough for us to actually talk to him. Food was good, but the rest was lacking. Tip was automatically added to the bill. Since I did not want to make a scene in front of clients I paid the bill. BUT would not have left such a large tip.

    Took my wife for our anniversary dinner. The food was fantastic. My wife had the filet and I had the 18oz rib eye. You know the wine list is extensive when the table of contents is multiple pages. To finish off the night, we had the souffle. The restaurant made this a special night for us and the service was great. We will be going back again and again.

    We were 15 minutes early and had an additional guest join us at the last minute. Hostess was friendly and accommodating. Our server, Edgar was excellent as he was friendly, detailed, and timely. Food was deliciously prepared. Tender, juicy rib eyes. Excellent scallops. Lobster bisque was lukewarm though. All the tables were occupied but the restaurant and the staff did not appear rushed or hectic. The restaurant ambiance was relaxed and perfect for a group dinner. Definitely worth numerous recommendations.

    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.
