    The best dinner I have ever had. If you visit Vegas you must eat at CraftSteak. We ate here our first night and had to come back before leaving again! 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

    our steaks were really good but not outstanding - our party of 6 ordered a variety of cuts and all were very good. The cook was perfect on all, some were disappointed in the seasoning. All salads and appetizers were outstanding, especially the proccutio and figs. THe creamed corn and mashed potatoes that our waiter recomended for sides were ok. The mixed mushrooms got mixed revuews from our table - some loved all of them, some thought they were wierd. The lobster in the surf and turf was outstanding. The Somellier was helpful with the wine list.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    I came here about a year ago with my buddy, and we both agreed it that we ate the best steak of our lives, and ultimately one of the best meals through the meat tasting. This time we went with a range of recommendations from the waitress, all which were incredible...the lobster bisque, short rib, and wagyu skirt steak. Even the corn side dish (special) was outstanding. However, we also had a $100 NY strip, and I have to admit that I've had better strip steaks from shop rite. It didn't bring the whole mean down, but it was very disappointing.

    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.
