    is difficult. There are lots of places that serve really good meat. I suggest that anyone trying to choose between these places look at the desserts, side dishes and extras to help them make the choice. IMO, its the fit between those side items and your personal preferences that should determine your choice of steakhouse. Our family of four adults finds that Craftsteak fits that bill for us. We had three proteins served family style so we could all share. We also had 5 side dishes because the waitress was kind enough to recommend 1/2 orders so we got some variety. My son and I found some relatively rare Japanese whiskeys available and these were exceptional. And trust me, don't miss the Monkey Bread. So remember, good meat isn't cheap and cheap meat isn't good. For good service and a solid steakhouse experience, we will return to Craftsteak.

    Food was excellent and service was decent. My husband and I did a chef's special to get try as much food as possible. The only issues was the quantity served - there was way too much food! I was stuffed and there was still a ton of food left. It could have easily served four people. It felt a bit wasteful to have so much!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Reservations made through Open Table - we were seated upon arriving We were a party of 4 that sat at a booth. Ambience was great - not too much lighting, not too little. Able to hear each other speaking at normal noise volume. Hot warm bread with butter to start. A little heavy on the sea salt sprinkled on top of the bread but just dust it off and no problems. Bread served warm and soft. Lobster bisque is a must try - creamy, well seasoned, served at the perfect temperature. Wagyu skirt steak melted in our mouths. It was also perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked. Potato puree was the best mashed potato ever - smooth, buttery and with just the right amount of salt. We also ordered a side of the Frisee salad. I enjoyed the level of acidity but my friend didn't. Request for light dressing and "easy on the cheese" if preferred. Monkey bread was a heavenly dessert and the ice cream paired well with it. Service was excellent - water glass always full, table constantly cleared and new utensils set down, drinks took less than 5 minutes from ordering to receiving, waitress checked in with us every 5-10 minutes and we didn't have to ask for something more than once. It was a formal, relaxing meal. Worth every penny!

    My friend and I chose Craftsteak for our special occasion dinner while in Vegas and it did not disappoint! We chose the tasting menu and the steaks were very tender and perfectly cooked. Our meal also came with coffee and dessert, both of which were dynamite. The lobster bisque was the best I've had. This restaurant is pricey, but worth the cost. Every member of the service team treated us well, giving us a full description of each menu item they delivered to us. They also made sure to remove any items we had finished with promptly and without interrupting our conversation. The chef and our waiter made recommendations for my friend who has a food allergy, and even made sure that the brines used did not contain anything that might cause a reaction.

    Disappointed with the steak, not seasoned lacking flavor, expected more from this steakhouse. The waiter seemed to push the wagu beef a bit too much at the expense of saying the USDA beef was low grade. Brussel side was over cooked almost mushy

    We had a group of 4 on a Sunday night. Wine selection was great and the bottle we selected exceeded expectations. 3 people got the lobster bisque soup and it was great. Between the group, we had 2 filets, 1 rib-eye and a porterhouse. The Filets were superior, the porterhouse was great, but the rib-eye was standard. We also shared 4 sides. The risotto was awesome, the brussel sprouts were ok, the potato au gratin were not very good and the kale (which I did not prefer to even order, but still sampled a bit) was not good (agreed by all four diners). Over all we had a good time. The service was good, but we had so many servers we really didn't feel a personal connection with the staff. Also suggest they offer some petite cuts.

    I ordered the kobe beef ribeye and for the price they charged, was a massive disappointment. My girlfriend ordered the regular ribeye and the steak was extremely chewy and tough. The service was slow and does not meet the standards expected for a "fancy" steakhouse. Don't waste your money at this place.

    I was really looking forward to visiting a Tom Collicchio restaurant. Service was decent, ambiance was fine, but my ribeye was really tough. For a steakhouse, I was pretty stunned. My colleague also ordered a steak and had the same experience. On a positive note, the au gratin potatoes were excellent and the fresh-baked bread delicious. But if the steak was served to Tom on Top Chef, it would have been a candidate for elimination.

    We were visiting Vegas and wanted to enjoy a great steakhouse. We picked this place based on location, of all the choices this is the only one that did nosy post an entree menu, so we were taking a chance. It did not disappoint, every morsel was a taste sensation and our waiter was fabulous. Very personable and on spot. Unfortunately we were too stuffed to indulge in dessert. It is definitely a do-over. Oh, and the Sommelier was impressively knowledgable!

    Red crab in saffron butter, need I say more? Terrific staff that have great knowledge of the menu and pay attention to the littlest detail. This is the second year in a row we've been for our anniversary and we will be back again in the Spring. I so love the dinner rolls, it's hard to not fill up on those. Heirloom tomato salad was fresh and light. Topped of the perfect filet and crab with a refreshingly tangy pomegranate lime sorbet.

    We have enjoyed Craft in NYC and dined at Craftsteak in Las Vegas for a special birthday. The room is elegant without being over the top. The service was truly excellent - attentive, helpful, and relaxed. Our heirloom tomatoes for starters were incredible - many different varieties - all perfectly ripe and served beautifully. My steak was wonderful - and, because I recently had shoulder surgery, the server cut it into cubes for me. The flavor was a delight and it was grilled exactly as I requested. My wife had the salmon, which she enjoyed and raved about. All in all, this was a wonderful dinner - and a wonderful evening - making us very pleased that we tried an old favorite in a new location.

    I was actually quit disappointed in our experience. The hostesses were not friendly when we arrived. There was a bit of a line at the hostess stand and no area to sit. We were informed that our table was not ready, so we went to the bar. The bartenders were attentive and very fast to service us. We had a few drinks at the bar before the hostess returned to lead us to our table which was.... at the bar! So we literally turned around and sat the table next to the bar, in the midst the loud bar scene with all kinds of crazies that were attending the PHISH concert. It was a terrible location for having a conversation and not romantic at all. Per my reservation notes, this was a birthday dinner for my partner which was never acknowledged onsite.

    The food is perfect. From the smallest bite to the biggest bite the food is perfection. The staff is always available and striving to give the diner a world class experience that will never be forgotten. The wine extensive but is not overwhelming and has a perfect bottle to enhance the meal and the evening. This a restaurant to put on your bucket list because it is always excellent. We have eaten there three times over the past couple years and the place is always spot-on. They leave nothing unattended when giving you your dining experience. Seriously, even the smallest nibble of greens is at its peak of freshness. Don't miss this restaurant because it is truly a gem. This not a boring chain restaurant.

    My wife had a shrimp cocktail and a Caesar salad. She reported that both were good. I had a filet with cubed squash. The filet was the last thing put on the table. It was cooked the way ordered (medium) and it was barely warm. When the server, David, returned and asked about the food, i, who rarely sends things back, told him about the meat. He took it back and I nibbled on the squash which was getting cold. Ten minutes later (I timed it), the meat came back (it was the same piece which was fine). The squash was now room temperature. The metal serving dish nor the plate I ate from were not hot like at Ruth's Chris which keeps the meat hot for much longer.

    Craftsteak has awesome steaks! I ordered my ribeye medium and it seemed to rare for me, and the server willingly took it back for and had the chef sear it just a bit more and it was perfect! I have to rememeber and a "steakhouse" most ribeyes are much thicker than I'm used too... So I need to order them medium well. The deserts were very good! The plain mango serbet was delish!
