Top French restaurants in Las Vegas
These French restaurants in Las Vegas are a feast for even the most spoiled gourmets out there. Therefore I am pretty sure YOU will find a great one for yourself! I just have to warn you - French food is pretty expensive here. Whether it's because French cuisine is rather rare in Vegas, compared to, let's say, Italian, or it's considered very exquisite, but it's impossible to find a cheap French bistro here. But at least in these chic ones they will treat you like royalty. Bon Appetit!
Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas is the most popular French restaurant in the city. It's perfect for romantic occasions - whether you are going to pop the question or just have a nice dinner together.

Reviews: Among all French restaurants in Las Vegas, Mon Ami Gabi is my favorite. And it's not just because I love the taste of the melting Brie or the weirdly shaped delicious steak frites...This restaurant is as close to Paris restaurants as it gets. The closeness of the Eiffel Tower, the Paris Hotel itself and the entire ambiance can make you feel almost as if you are in Paris. Do yourself a favor and try to seat at the outside patio - you will thank me later! They don't accept reservations for the verandah seating though - first come, first served! Among their highly praised dishes are Steak with Creme Fraiche or With Bearnaise Sauce, Eggs Benedict, Fillet Mingnon and Sea Scallops.
Address: 3600 Las Vegas Blvd South, inside Bellagio Hotel; Tel: 877 234 6358
Prices: $25 - $100
Hours of operation: Tuesday - Sunday: 5:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.; Closed on Mondays
Options: Lunch, Dinner
Reviews: So many people confuse the restaurant Le Cirque at the Bellagio Hotel with the show O by Cirque du Soleil. Now you won't make this mistake! Anyway, at Le Cirque, one of the best French restaurants in Las Vegas, the circus theme prevails everywhere. The ceiling looks like a circus rooftop, plates have circus monkeys on them, scenes from circus painted on the walls. And through the window, you can watch the cool show of the dancing fountains. Nice frame for a cool restaurant, serving some great French food! They have a delightful degustation menu, created by Chef Gregory Pugin. If you are still wondering what to order - many reviewers recommend Filet De Loup De Mer, Lobster Polenta, Risotto Du Marché, and La Bouillabaisse De Marseille.
L'Atelier Joel Robuchon
Address: 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, inside MGM Grand Hotel; Tel: 702-891-7358
Hours of operation: 5:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Good for: Special Occasions
Reviews: L'Atelier Joel Robuchon is one of the smallest yet exquisite French restaurants in Las Vegas - it occupies a very tiny space at the MGM Grand hotel. So tiny that majority of customers actually seat at the bar. There are a few tables at this restaurant, but I guess you have to reserve them well in advance. All the more fun, because from the bar you can watch chefs prepare their culinary delights. And this is really a feast for the eyes, as the dishes they create following signature recipes of the famous Chef Joel Robuchon are a feast for the bellies. If you are ready to shell out a couple of hundred dollars for two, you will have an experience of a lifetime! You would probably want to try their tasting menu (It's always my prime choice - this way I can try a little bit of everything!). But if you have to choose, people are raving about their Sea Bass, Foie Gras, Sea Urchin Flan And Langoustines.
Twist by Pierre Gagnaire
Address: 3752 Las Vegas Blvd. South, inside Mandarin Oriental Hotel; Tel: 1 (888) 881 9367
Hours of operation: Tuesday-Saturday 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Options: Lunch, Dinner
Reviews: Twist by Pierre Gagnaire is a modern and very beautiful French restaurant, located on the 23rd floor of the very luxurious hotel Mandarin Oriental. The classy decor includes lots of purple colors and beautiful "teardrops" crystals hanging from the ceiling. And, of course, the incredible views of the Strip from the windows! Like it is customary in French restaurants in Las Vegas, it offers a five course tasting menu, with and without wine pairing. Make sure to come hungry, especially if you are planning on trying the tasting menu - the portions here are huge! Once you do, prepare to be amazed by the signature Pierre Salad, Scallop Capaccio, Tandoori Seared Monkfish, An Of Course Foie Gras!
Address: 3355 Las Vegas Blvd South, inside The Venetian Hotel; Tel: 7024146200
Prices: $21 - $100
Hours of operation: Breakfast: Daily: 7:00AM - 1:00PM; Brunch Saturday-Sunday: 8:00AM - 2:00PM; Dinner: 5:00PM - 10:00PM
Good for: Special Occasions
Reviews: If you are more into a filling "bistro" type of food (i.e. hearty casual dishes), try Bouchon at the Venetian hotel. Bouchon is a glorious version of the traditional French Bistro, where all the dishes are "interpreted" by the celebrity Chef Thomas Keller, based on his travels around France. Unlike other French restaurants in Las Vegas, eating at Bouchon won't break your wallet, but will make you happy:-) The atmosphere here is as casual as it can get at a hotel of this level, and the food is as French as it can be in Vegas. Visitors particularly enjoyed veal appetizer, Steak Frite, Gigot d'Agneau, Roasted Bone Marrow, Eggs Benedict, Onion Soup, Sole Almondine and Croque Madame.
Address: 3770 Las Vegas Blvd, inside Monte Carlo Resort & Casino; Tel: 702 798-715
Prices: $40 - $80
Hours of operation: Tuesday-Sunday starting at 5:30 pm
Good for: Quiet Atmosphere
Reviews: If you are looking for French restaurants in Las Vegas for a quiet romantic evening away from the craziness of the Strip, Andre's at Monte Carlo Resort & Casino might be perfect for you. It's a small, classically beautiful restaurant decorated in elegant tones of blue and grey. Created by André Rochat, the first celebrity chef in Las Vegas, the restaurant offers an impeccable service and delicious French food with wine pairings. For added intimacy, you can ask to sit in a booth, away from the rest of the crowd. Reportedly, they make exquisite meat and seafood dishes - rib eye steak, Lobster Thermidor and scallops are named the best in town!
Address: 3950 Las Vegas Blvd South, inside Mandalay Bay Hotel; Tel: 7026329500
Prices: $40 - $60
Hours of operation: Sunday to Thursday:6:00 pm to 10:00 pm; Friday & Saturday:6:00 to 10:30 pm
Good for: Great View
Reviews: Mix, created by Alain Ducasse, is one of those French restaurants in Las Vegas where you go not just for the food but also for the views. It's located on the 50th floor of THEHotel - a luxury extension of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. As the hotel is located at the very beginning of the Strip, you can see practically the entire Strip from this restaurant - it's breathtaking. White tones and unobtrusive decorations in the shape of clear teardrops at Mix create a great framework for the incredible views and the food. If you are not sure what to choose - opt in for the sampling menu. Among recommended dishes are Filet De Boeuf Rossini, Fillet Mignon, Braized Beef, Crab Salad, Halibut, and Foie Gras.
