When you come to Vegas for a special occasion, you have to dine at the Eiffel Tower restaurant. Set 11 stories above the Las Vegas Strip, the Eiffel Tower restaurant is romantic, inspiring and a perfect place to celebrate a birthday, a wedding or life.
For breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip ask to sit at a table beside the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. However, there isn't a bad seat in the house. The restaurant features luxurious red booths, wood accents and exposed metal beams from the Eiffel Tower construction.
From renowned Chef Jean Joho, the cuisine is eclectic French and American fare.
The lunch menu is simple and elegant. A few highlights include half a creamy avocado stuffed with a cool crab salad and served on a bed of greens. A fun dish for lunch is the checkerboard sandwich platter. Delicious cold salads like egg, chicken and crab are served on toasted squares of brioche and served with crispy house made potato chips.
The dinner menu includes appetizers worth sinking your teeth into, like the blue cheese soufflé. Served with a small salad, walnuts and pecans, this soufflé is light and fluffy.
It's a Frenchman's kitchen, so it's only fitting that other appetizers gracing the menu include escargot with mushrooms, garlic and spinach and two foie gras dishes.
Entrées include fish dishes like olive oil poached halibut with couscous and duck two ways, breast and leg confit. Rack of lamb, beef Wellington and a char broiled filet mignon are also available.
One of the nicer parts about the Eiffel Tower restaurant is between the excellent service, good food and spectacular view, you feel like you're on a vacation from your vacation.
