The venue is more cafe than fine dining but the food and service is excellent. We were a party of seven and we greeted and seated shortly after arrival. Our server introduced herself and gave us the drink and dinner menus. She took our drink and dinner orders and returned shortly with our cocktails. When she served our dinners she knew who ordered each plate and made sure all orders were complete. The food was wonderful. Two of us had the liver and onions and it was cooked perfectly. Three had the prime rib special and each was cooked exactly as ordered. One had fish & chips which arrived hot and crispy. Dessert menu was presented and two couples ordered the bread pudding, served warm with vanilla bean ice cream, and was very good. One couple shared the chocolate ganache cake and enjoyed that. Our single had the apple crisp served a la mode and devoured every bite. Overall we had a wonderful 71st Anniversary celebration enjoying great food and will return to Siegel’s in the future

I ordered the fried chicken which had very small pieces but was tasty. My husband had the prime rib special and he was pleased. The restaurant was not busy, therefore not noisy either. Our server, I can’t remember his name, did a fine job of the bare minimum that was expected of him. He did not offer advice on best sellers or cocktails. He simply took our order and hurried away. He did check in on us once while we dined and again to drop off the check. I would say for the price it was good. I would not consider it “fine dining” IMO.

We had the Florida Stone crab. It was so good! Since we went there for that specifically, we really enjoyed it. The sides were just so-so. The server was very good. We enjoyed our dinner a lot.
The only down-side is that you get a whiff of the casino smoke now and then. Other than that I would recommend it.
The only other place in town that has this is about twice the price.

Wow the price is so reasonable! We had a great dinner and the service was so friendly. Prime rib special is 14.99 and it's hard to beat that. Only TINY gripe was that they played the same song over and over the entire time we were there.

Their prime rib special is a great value! Wedge salad & shrimp cocktail was excellent. Reservations were a must. People tried to walk in & were told 2 hour wait due to low staff. The service was excellent. Incredibly nice & competent staff. Safe & clean parking garage & casino. I’m born & raised here & this is one of our favorite places to eat. Very reasonably priced & great value.

The spaghetti and meatballs were dry and look left overcooked.
The waitress did not even query why the meal was left basically untouched.
She never asked “ how’s you’re meal”

The prawn cocktail and steak was average.

First time here based on a recommendation. This was our Christmas dinner and the experience was awful! Our server, Nancy, had no personality and was not friendly, did not wish us Merry Christmas and did not thank us for dining there. The food was barely warm and mediocre. You could tell they were short staffed, as their managers were serving tables. Our bill was wrong as well. We will never go here again!

Food was excellent as well as the ambiance, but the staff was less than enthusiastic. Probably not happy they had to work on Christmas Eve. Our waiter looked miserable, and acted like it was a big deal when my boyfriend requested a piece of bread with his meal since he is a diabetic.

Service was fine, but the food was not at all. Prime rib was dry and not flavorful, mashed potatoes were instant and the gravy was out of a jar. Salmon was dry too. And the casino/hotel it’s in is gross.

Prime Rib Specials seem to be a tradition in Las Vegas and we’ve tried them all and the is the only one we go to now. Not as big as they used to be, but the flavor and availability is great (it’s available 24/7 and we’ve had it for breakfast!). Not to biggest restaurant, nor the fanciest casino, but worth the trip!

Went for the Chanukah special. Didn't have one of the appetizers (of course, the one we wanted to order). Entree arrived less than hot. Dessert (kugel) was awful (very dry and not tasty).

This was not my first time at this restaurant, but it was the first time I went for the holiday dinner.

Very disappointing.

Was very happy that we made the reservation. Our table was waiting for us. Our server was great. The food was better than I expected. The portions were more than plentiful. Had enough to eat and had some to take home. I was surprised to see that our server was also our busboy. Only shows that there was more help needed but she kept up with everything. Would definitely go back again.

I liked Siegels for it's location as I enjoy walking after a nice meal with my guests. The container park is directly across the street. The specials for those over 50 felt uninviting so I choose our meals from the normal menu. The service was good without being over bearing. The only part I had a difficulty with is I use a cane and I wandered throughout the small casino trying to find the restaurant.

We really appreciated and enjoyed the Chanukah Menu dinner. While not kosher, it was rather authentic Jewish style cooking. The chopped liver was great, but the matzah ball soup was way too salty. That's a common error in many places, for some reason, thinking matzah soup has to be salty. The brisket and apricot chicken were very tasty and properly prepared. The sides of kasha with bowtie pasta, broccoli, and a potato latke with sour cream made for an overstuffed plate. The main issue, IMHO, was the 1 very large, fat, soggy potato latke per person. It would have been much more traditional if they used the same amount of potato and made three, smaller, crispier ones. They could have also served or offered more challah. One slice was served with the soup. Crackers came with the chopped liver and salad. Desert was either ice cream or an oversized serving of raison noodle kugel. We shared one of each. Both were good but, as a dessert, the kugel could have been a bit sweeter; either add a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a drizzle of chocolate syrup. With a $5 p/p players card discount on this holiday menu (only), it was well worth the trip and the price.

The food was very good but the staff was less than friendly. They mentioned they felt they were understaffed and while I do feel bad for them, if that is the case it’s not the customers fault and is unprofessional to act poorly towards us.

We had called in to see if we could get an earlier reservation then what we had booked. The exasperated hostess did not think that she could get us in any earlier than 6:30 PM. When we were arrived, there were multiple open tables. Our waiter was nice, but would forget about us for quite some time while he spent time chatting with other guests. Probably not the best dining experience.

Great food, great service, super clean and consistently fabulous. Nice to eat on real plates with real silverware in a very comfortable setting. Shows old movies on the television like Maltese Falcon and original Oceans 11. We make a special trip to come here several times a year even though we stay at south end of the strip. Thank you to all the folks at Siegels.

We have been going here (El Cortez), since the 1960's. We celebrated our Dad's upcoming 102nd birthday on Monday, 11/22/2021. The food and staff were EXCELLENT! This is an "OLD SCHOOL" restaurant; meaning we are staying at Bellagio's and the restaurants are 5 times more expensive, Siegal 41 if 5 times better in every way. Please do not change a thing.

Thank you! Chad

Hidden gem. The food was great. The service very good and the atmosphere is perfect. The prime rib special is the best deal we found. We ate there in 2019 and our last 2 nights this trip. An added bonus is it is a 1 block walk to the Fremont St Experience and the El Cortez hotel has free parking.
