Cool atmosphere, dim blue lights and white seats, no windows and on the main floor and off to the side of the Palms. They are said to have phenomenal steaks, particularly the rib eye and filet, but no one at my table had them; we had the Scottish salmon and lamb, with green beans and mushrooms for sides, and this really cool smores dessert that came with it's own little fire and sticks. Be prepared to pay of course, the rent in Vegas hotels isn't cheap, and the bill for 4 (including 3 drinks) was $369.

I can't even lie...if good food is what you want this is the place to go.. and since they are making the food right in front of you, you know for sure they didn't poison you or something..the wondering of poisoness foods will no longer be a virtue!!!

The best thing about this casino is that you get to do your best Charles Barkley impersonation and say "That's Terribles" all day. If you are looking for a no-frills room to crash for $30 a night, this is really ok because it's divey but not seedy and you can walk to the middle of the Strip in about 15 minutes. Or if you prefer the lower end casinos where the games are cheaper and food is cheaper (and bad) then this is also an ok choice.

This was another place I hadn't been to in years and renewed acquaintance with recently. Buried in the bottom of the Four Queens, it hadn't changed much, from the menu to the ambiance to the food quality. Everything is good, but falls short of great. I had the Duckling Anise Flambe, which was very good, but the salad constructed by the waiter was no more than above average. They seemed to have a little trouble making a dry martini (something of a surprise in Vegas) and needed a couple of cracks to get it right. Service at Hugo's is by a tag team of several waiters so you get the impression of being served by a committee. I don't mind but I noticed it seemed to confuse some of our neighboring diners. The wine list is very good, with a range of choices from both the moderate low end to the very high, and the sommelier knows his stuff.

I don't know that I'd make a special trip to eat there, but if you're staying downtown it's worth a visit.

I just renewed my acquaintance with this place after an absence of over two decades, and I found myself wondering what the hell I'd been staying away for.

It's very old style Vegas and proud of it, with none of the faux hauteur of the Strip joints, and better food than most of them too. Founded in 1958, this was a hangout of the Rat Pack and other members of the famous and infamous society and visitors to the city. Fully embracing it's history, the menu lists Tony "The Ant" Spilotro right beside the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin as regular customers. (Only a true cynic would observe that the difference between the gangsters and the celebrities was sometimes a matter of perspective.)

I took my son there this past weekend and we got treated like we owned the joint, with waiters bantering cheerfully and telling stories, lies and jokes about the place. It was more like going to visit friends you hadn't seen in a long time than going to a restaurant.

The food was great, steaks done to perfection, and side dishes of asparagus and potatoes lyonnaise that were subtle and complimented the meat superbly. Their version of Oysters Rockefeller is good but slightly short of great, and their cocktails and post dinner brandy selection was excellent.

Post dinner we got a brief tour of the place by our sardonically witty waiter, which was almost as entertaining as the meal itself.

Cost? Well it's far from cheap but it is slightly less expensive than the chain steakhouses on the strip or the uber-pretentious ones in the big resort hotels, and it's way more fun.

Pretty legit spot on top of the Palms, on the 58th floor I think. Great view of the strip, service was on par as was the food.
