The City of Light meets the city of sin at Paris Las Vegas. It is as cheesy as it gets. As long as you have the cash, you can have anything you want. Everything here is faux. Faux Paris if you want. The centrally-located Parisian-themed hotel boasts a replica Eiffel Tower, a mock Arc de Triomphe and French restaurants mixed with a Las Vegas-style nightclub and shows. And Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen franchise.
Gordon Ramsay Steak has carved out its place in the heart of Las Vegas Steak as a fresh, high-energy dining environment set within the Paris casino. Combining Gordon Ramsay’s famous hit dishes with an exceptional fine dining experience, the restaurant brings a taste of London to Las Vegas’ Paris Hotel.
The ceiling of the chic steakhouse is splashed with the Union Jack Flag and towers over an alluring bar, lounge, and two-story dining area for guests to sit back and unwind in. For the discerning jetsetters, there’s also private dining rooms available or you could even dine at the chef’s table and witness the creation of all the delicious dishes.
After devouring the appetising menu with your eyes, you’ll be ready to feast upon the tantalising dishes on offer. Relish the jam-packed sensations of the caviar, fried Blue Point oysters, Gordon Ramsay’s iconic Beef Wellington, or choose another authentic British dish – such as Shepherd’s Pie. Ramsay’s cuts of prime beef, which are aged to perfection by the culinary team are also available. Not to mention the host of French-influenced sides and desserts available.
Cuts of Prime Beef
Ramsay’s cuts of prime beef are aged to perfection under a program directed by Chef Ramsay and his culinary team. Everything from steaks to fish to chops are tender slices of heaven, especially when accompanied with Alaskan king crab legs and Béarnaise sauce. Dig into his iconic beef Wellington, or opt for a 32-ounce royal long-bone chop or the duet of lamb accompanied with shepherd’s pie and a plethora of French-influenced sides and desserts.
At this posh Las Vegas steakhouse, no detail is left untouched. Even the bread basket is to die for.
I loved seafood platters. I used to be able to eat one of these on my own. Besides the usual Alaskan crab legs and chilled deshelled prawns, there were the rare clams and lobster claws. Here, the Iced shellfish platter was not cooked until tasteless. Everything retained the freshness and sweetness of shellfish. Yum yum.
I opted for the 32-ounce royal long-bone chop, medium rare, with fresh mustard au jus. It was a really tasty piece of meat. The fat was rendered properly with enough burn but not enough to cause cancer.
Sides were all a la carte (like all good steakhouse). But they were all quite unappetising to look at and rather blah.
Andrew went for the signature Roasted Beef Wellington, served medium rare, garnished with glazed root vegetables, potato purée, red wine demi-glace. It was cooked to perfection. Flaky crust, red core for the fillet. Gordon Ramsay’s technique to do this British dish was executed to perfection.
For dessert, I shared the Ramsay’s legendary sticky toffee pudding, sweet pudding cake, brown sugar toffee, brown butter ice cream, with the guests. It was too sweet for my preference but everyone else was full of praise for this signature dessert.
Precision, meticulous, discrete. They knew their crafts in this top-notch restaurant. Sometimes, you do not need a Michelin star to have top quality service. Kudos to the service staff for a really nice evening with my important guests.
If I were to pick a problem, I would say the speed of serving was not exactly fast. Given that, we ordered almost different doneness for our steaks, different dishes, and it was a party of 8. But it was a busy evening, so everything was slow. Hack, I would not argue as they had a really long steak carving knife for the tomahawk.
Good, reasonably priced wine list. But the cocktails were fantastics and you could drink too much of it in a very short period. Just ask my guests.
Reservation recommended, especially during convention season. Be prepared to spend $150++ pax.
