Chef Emeril Lagasse has one of his signature Steakhouses at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. We decided to try this on our most recent trip to Las Vegas.
During this Covid period, they did have several safety protocols in place. All staff work both face masks and face shields. In addition, all diners were seated a few tables apart. If you take a look at the pictures you can appreciate how far we had to dine from the other patrons. As a matter of fact, we had our own part of the restaurant for the majority of our meal.
Emeril's influence was on full display during our entire meal. The Oysters were flavorful and so tender. When they brought the Cesar Salad, it was prepared like a piece of art (see video). Actually both of us felt this was probably the best Cesar Salad we had ever had.
We both decided to have the same entrée' for dinner, the 21 day dry aged Bone-In Ribeye. They were lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. The meat was so tender... too bad it was only 20oz! This was one of the best cooked steaks we have had.
With the Rib Eye we enjoyed some smashed potatoes and grilled asparagus.
The ambience of the restaurant was absolutely intimate and enjoyable. If the establishment had actually been full with other diners, I feel as if the intimacy would have been comparable.
After dinner we discussed our experience. This is a location we would definitely return to. Besides the food being absolutely delicious, the wait staff were Johnny-on-the-spot for any and everything we needed. Please if you are ever in Las Vegas, and around the Venetian you must try this location. It will be simply worth every penny you spend.
