A hidden gem and your new favorite Vegas steakhouse, ENVY, offers an unforgettable experience.

This gorgeous, hip monument to beef features dishes prepared by decorated Executive Chef Christopher Mihy. ENVY serves incredible dishes such as a 15oz Bone-in Rib-Eye, 12oz Bone-in Filet, 40oz Tomahawk, Veal Chop Milanese, and a Signature Sea Bass with famous sides such as Truffle Fries and Bourbon Creamed Corn. Premium Angus Steaks are aged for 28 days and seafood is meticulously prepared to perfection.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    This was an absolute horrible dinner. I ordered the apple pork chop that cost $29.00, It comes out on the bone and all! It was not tender at all. That is all that was on the plate! My boyfriend ordered a chicken breast meal, it was a whole half of a chicken cut in half! It was absolutley ridiculous looking! How are you supposed to eat that? Not easily! His cost $1.00 more than mine. We knew that this was an upscale restauraunt and that it would be kind of costly, so you would think that they could at least prepare it so we could eat it easily!

    We had read so many reviews about this restaurant that we could not wait for our next visit to Las Vegas to try it. The people were friendly, the setting was really nice but the food did not keep up. We were ready for an experience that unfortunately did not deliver as expected. The shrimp appetizer was good with three jumbo shrimp and a good sauce. The BLT salad was also good, but from that point it all fell down. The spinach salad was very oily and the cook forgot the balsamic vinegar in the vinaigrette. The meat was tender but a bit dry and the outer portion of it had a bit of a brine burnt taste. It is hard to tell if this was a unique occurrence or that is the way it is all the time. We felt sad since we wanted to like it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    ENVY for Brunch is pretty great. We thought they had breakfast, but when they said they had brunch, wet went for it. There are all kinds of meats, cheese, and many types of bread. Envy also has eggs benedict for the buffet, which is pretty good. They also have a menu where you can choose an item from. Overall it was pretty good, but it is kind of expensive for brunch. For the 2 of us, it cost about $80.

    Dined on 10/13/2008
    Thankfuly I had a coupon to cover almost 50% of the cost of our meal expenses. The food was mediocre at best. Tthe steaks we ordered were over-cooked, and even when the steaks were done again, they were still just so-so for medium-rare steaks. I normally see more than some degree of blood but these were dry and just pink inside...(bloodless!). The wine was not worth the $85 dollars we paid for at this restaurant...had to look deep for any charcter in the wine..it just wasn't there...boring bottle [Matnanza(sp?) Cabernet 2004]. the coffee at the end of the meal was just so-so also. I had better tasting coffee at the Ballagio Buffet than here. the service was wonderful though and the surroundings--nice...but I will not come here again.

    After spending four days in Vegas and eating at some of its finest restaurants, ENVY - The Steakhouse was our No. 1 choice, not only for the excellent quality of the food, but also the exceptional service and attention we received. Highlight: the different finishing salts presented to complement our menu selections. For me, the Hawaiian Lava salt was supreme on the Tuscan Veal. Would you ever have anticipated that?

    My husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at ENVY. We were totally impressed with the restaurant. When making the reservation, I requested a quiet table and mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. As the hostess showed us to a lovely booth, she wished us a Happy Anniversary, a very nice personal touch. Our waitress was excellent - a perfect mix of professionalism and personality. My husband ordered a petite filet and I had the seared scallops and lobster mac and cheese, all cooked to perfection. After dinner our waitress surprised us with a piece of chocolate cake topped with ice cream on a plate that was decorated with dessert gel reading Happy Anniversary. We highly recommend ENVY.

    Very good food at pretty reasonable prices. Service was good once they got going. Not over the top but very friendly and reasonably prompt. Atmosphere was not quite what we considered "romantic", the description was why we chose that particular restaurant. More like a re-modeled coffee shop. Still an enjoyable experience with out the Saturday night "strip" crowds

    Restaurant was visually pleasing but that was about it. Service was extremely slow and the waitstaff appeared to be somewhat confused. When food was finally served, it was barely warm and tasteless. Trying to pay for check ended up being a 30 minute adventure, involving the manager and several other staff members, making us late for our next appointment.

    Extremely courteous, yet unpretentious, staff. There was no sommelier, but teh wine tasting notes were accurate and helpful. Typical high-end steak house menu, but it had some unique side dishes as well. The flavored salts were a clever touch and added to teh culinary experience. Highly recommend the chef's trio for dessert. You get to try three desserts, and they are just teh right amount.

    The Envy steakhouse was thoroughly an enjoyable dining experience. Great ambiance and friendly wait staff made this for a very enjoyable evening. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were to die for. I highly reccomend the mashers and asparagus. It was my mothers 50th birthday I mentioned this in the note area of opentable.com when making the reservation. Without asking or mentioning anything the waiter brought her a melting choclate cake with ice cream that had happy birthday written on the plate at the end of our meal. She was extremely surprised and flattered. I highly recommend Envy Steakhouse at the Rennaisance Hotel in Las Vegas.

    The dining experience was incredible. Deonte (I'm not sure of his name) was an incredible waiter. He helped us through the menu and the list of wines suggesting excellent food. He took a lot of time with us and we appreciated his extensive knowledge of the food and wines that you have to offer. We will definitely plan on coming back. I received a gift certificate from the school that I teach at for dinner at the restaurant, which is why we went. What an incredible gift! It was by far one of the best dinners I have ever had! Thank you and please make sure that our waiter is thanked as well. He definitely added to the dining experience.

    The menu needs a little more work. The salad w/the figs was too pricey for the amount received. I also had the Lamb Bisco?...and it leaves something to be imagined as I am used to Lamb w/a mint sauce and this was not seasoned as lamb needs to be and served on a bed of mashed potato like beans. If I was to return I belive I will go when they have the Jazz Brunch on Sundays as I heard per the radio station here in Las Vegas(Oasis 105.7) it is excellent!..I hope I am not let down.

    The food and service was very good. I would highly recommend it. The one dissapointing fact was the wine. Don't get me wrong, the wine the waiter picked was excellent, 2005 Qupe Syrah, at the time I didn't even mind paying $65 for the bottle, my dissapointment came the following night while dining at Flemings (very comparable in quality, ambiance, etc). They had the same wine, with the same vintage listed for $45, a whopping $20 difference for the same bottle, so I felt a little gouged. Overall had a nice dinner on my Dad's 65th Birthday.

    Beautiful restaurant with modern decor right down to the knives that lay on the table blade down. Very nice overall, timing was a little on the slow side. Highlights were the ahi tuna dynamite tower and the bone in filet. They also make a very nice sea bass if you've not in the mood for steak. Also, they are accommodate vegetarians with off menu recommendations. I dined there 3 times while at a conference and service was consistently very good.
