I finally got around to checking out Bazaar Meat after meaning to go here for over a year, and I'm so glad I did! The first thing that drew me in was the overall atmosphere of the place. It's dark with really bizarre decor and a huge fire pit right in the middle of the dining room. I really love the multiple kitchen concept here and as a true foodie, it was super entertaining to watch the chefs busy at work preparing my meal.The best tip I can give you is that if you come here, BRING MONEY. I mean serious amounts of it. This is NOT a bargain restaurant but I thought the high price tag was worth it. This was not just a meal, it was a very memorable experience.The service was leisurely paced with just the right amount of friendliness. We decided to go all out with this meal so we ordered multiple courses and brought our own wine ($35 corkage fee). I took a pic of the wine menu since it was surprisingly heavy on big California reds. Worth noting since it's a faux pas to bring a bottle of wine that's already on the menu! The menu is heavy on Spanish influenced cuisine, with a focus on cured meats and giant steaks. This is not the place for picky eaters either, I'd classify most of the menu items as not only adventurous, but downright strange. Get out of your comfort zone and try some of the more wacky menu listings!The serving styles are pretty inventive too -- the chicken croquetas are served in a fake glass Converse shoe! My favorite menu item of the evening were the cauliflower steak (roasted cauliflower in a very tasty romesco sauce). Yep, delicious! The asparagus were a huge let down and our plate was comprised of mostly the hard, woody stems. Yuck. Nobody likes that part and most of what we were served should've been thrown out. I was also not a fan of the crab and shrimp cocktail and would not order that again. The Chateaubriand was absolutely perfect. It took a while to cook but we were having a blast relaxing in the intimate atmosphere of the place. Since Bazaar Meat specializes in steaks, it goes without saying that the kitchen knows how to cook meat perfectly. We had both medium and medium-rare meat and both were absolutely perfect.I loved the dessert menu concept (go for the "Chef's Sampler" box of mini desserts). They were almost too pretty to eat and tasted great. My favorite thing? The mini cookies, yum! My $6.00 espresso was more than acceptable and was a great way to round out our dinner.While I'd love to be able to make dining here a habit, the prices will make it only reserved for special occasions. Ask to see the daily tasting menu options too, but be warned: the prices are EVEN HIGHER THAN THE FRENCH LAUNDRY! Yikes!If you only order one thing here, make it the Robuchon potatoes. They were like eating mashed potato butter icing! Smooth texture and tons of creamy butter-ness!

From Business: Five Star Tavern is home to the best video poker in Nevada, but poker isn’t the only feather in our hat. Five Star Tavern, A Las Vegas Style Pub, is also the best…
The rooms are very nice, the check in process is horrendous though! We live here and go there once in awhile to get away from it all; but this last trip will be our last. It seems like the younger crowd has taken over and everyday is Spring Break. Nothing like seeing more plumbers crack as I walked through the casino, down the hallways, in the elevator and the language is inexcusable. I finally went and grabbed Security and told them about a young man who was literally exposing both sides of him, hair and flesh; and the Security said "What do you want me to do about it". Well, maintain your 4 star status and tell the man to pull up his pants and get some decorum/manners. They just don't seem to care anymore. No one should have to stand in line for an hour to check in - everytime we go, no matter what time we check in as we have tried diff. times of the day - it is a nightmare. They should have EVERY station open during the prime hours of check in and check out EVERY DAY of the week! The slot machines took every penny and then another MAC withdrawl, I was SHOCKED. They must be hurting bad and they have them rigged NOT to pay a dime - so play table games, it is your only chance of getting anything back. I have lived here for 5 years, right before the BIG DIVE in the economy and all the way through it and I have never seen machines SO TIGHT. We will find another getaway place after this last visit. Let the place go wild if that is the type of clientele they want; why would I want to wear a beautiful dress and spend good money on an expensive, deliciousl dinner to walk behind a group of guys showing plumbers crack issues on the way back to my room for a romantic night??? No thanks - lost my appetite for everything!
review for Tropicana's Mob Experience Attractionoh man do i have a huuuuge obsession/fixation with the mob and the mafia-like it's so not okay...so when I heard about this attraction at the Tropicana, I knew that I had to experience it on my next trip to Vegas. It's interactive and pretty educational. You walk through the attraction and essentially run with the mob. At the end, it's your response that determines your fate. The actors were really good and held character very well, even with my friend and I cracking up the whole time trying to be serious with them. Try to go with a local (they get discounts) or find a deal if you don't want to pay the full entrance fee. The very end of the attraction has rooms upon rooms of information and history about all of the key mobsters, hotels, and endeavors that led to Vegas being what it is today.
Excellent service. Turned up on time and my pre-packed gluten free breakfast and lunch were both good. comfortable journey in a comfortable vehicle. The day was a wonderful learning experience where I learned the history, geology and ecology of the places we visited - and in an academic depth and detail that I would never have expected from a simple day tour. This was due to the expertise of the guide, Ralph, who is punching way below his weight as a mere tour guide. His guidance and knowledge made the day a tour which I would highly recommend to anyone interested in more than surface detail. Also this guy's personality and patience deserves acknowledgement - well done Ralph and Casino Tours and Travel - I take pleasure in recommending both .
Great Hotel, very bad and unprofessional service. I was there on february 11th and 12th, we got there at 2:30pm we went to customer service to check in the rooms were not available the customer service representative too our phone number to call us when room are available. He says it should take too long, we waited until 5:35pm no one called us, so we went to customer service desk and the room still not ready, no simpty from the customer service guys, and no one was opologetic. Even when we called the suppervisor she was worst than the rest of them kept going in circle with her, and she kept repeating the same thing, diffending her guys.
I was really impressed by CUT. It really is an experience and an education. Before you order, they explain the different types of steak that they offer by actually bringing the meat on a cart out to the table. Everything that I ate was delicious and I am not a huge red meat eater. The quality of the meat was wonderful. We each ordered the plates that included a cut of several of the steaks. It was cool to be able to taste each steak without having to actually order several different steaks. It is very expensive, but in my opinion, it was totally worth it.
My group has stayed at the Golden Nugget several times over the years. This time, October 2013, was the worst. Things just seemed to go wrong everywhere! Rooms all seemed dirty and worn down (even with "recent renovations"), broken locks and safes in the room, casino seemed understaffed on the floor because over 4 days on constant gambling at the slots some were NEVER approached about a beverage, and the little grill next to the sports bar took 30-40 mins to order and another 30-40 mins to get a pizza and 2 sandwiches!!!
On my annual trip to Las Vegas, I searched every casino on the Strip and Freemont Street for the video poker machine with the female dealers. All of the casinos replaced this game and I was upset. Slots-a-Fun was the only casino that still had this video machine. Needless to say, although I was staying at another popular casino/hotel, I have spent most of my vacation time in Slots-a-Fun. They still had many of the old slot machines I was use to playing and loved to gamble with.
Every part of our trip with Palace Station has been Great. Make sure to check in to a Tower room and not a Courtyard room. They are newer, bigger and better. Its worth the couple of dollars and the comfort level is worth it. The Buffet is the Best price in all of Las Vegas. Lots of Good food at a affordable price. The Strip is the same food at 3 times the price. The game odds seem to be much better than the strip. Over all it's been a really Great stay
JACKPOT JOANIE'S ON PECOS AND RUSSELL IS A VERY CONFORTABLE CASINO, THEY ARE VERY NICE IN THERE AND THERE IS NO PRESURE LIKE THE ONE ON TROPICANA AND BOULDER HWY. THE ONE ON TROP/BOULDER IS EXTREMELY CRAZY IN THERE. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE IN THERE AT ALL IT IS A BAD ENVIROMENT IN THERE. THE STAFF ARE VERY UNFRIENDLY, AND THE CUSTOMERS ARE LOW LIFES. ALL THEY DO IS GET DRUNK. NOT A SAFE PLACE TO BE. THANKS JEFF
