I recently had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant and I must say, it was a delightful experience from start to finish. The restaurant had a warm and inviting atmosphere, with tasteful decor and a cozy feel. What I appreciated the most was that the music was not blasting, allowing for a pleasant conversation with my husband without having to shout. The service at this restaurant was truly excellent. Our server, whose name I unfortunately do not have, was absolutely fantastic. She was attentive, friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful dining experience. Her knowledge of the menu and recommendations were spot on, and she made us feel well taken care of throughout the entire meal. The standout dish for me was the corned beef hash. It was hands down one of the best I've ever had. The flavors were rich and perfectly balanced, and the texture was just right. I highly recommend trying this dish if you visit this restaurant. It is a true delight for the taste buds. I would also like to mention that making reservations is highly recommended.

Another great experience! We are so fortunate to have stumbled upon this restaurant. Elegantly decorated, first class service, well presented appetizers, and entrees, as well as desserts! All correctly prepared and full of flavor. Just everything you'd expect from a first class establishment.

Mon Ami Gabi is an absolute gem! The food is not only delicious but also reasonably priced, making it a win-win. The staff exudes both friendliness and professionalism, creating a welcoming atmosphere that enhances the dining experience. What truly impressed me was the extensive menu offerings for all times of the day. I had both breakfast and brunch here, and I can confidently say that nothing fell short of perfection. The flavors, presentation, and variety were all exceptional. Whether you choose to dine on the charming patio with its excellent view or in the inviting interior, you're in for a treat. Mon Ami Gabi manages to strike the perfect balance between ambiance and taste, making it a must-visit spot for any meal of the day. Will dine here more often on my next visit to Vegas!

I had the hanger steak and fries that are in the picture. They were both delicious!! My wife had a surf and turf special of a filet with shrimp. She wanted to lick the plate clean. Diego, our waiter, was superb. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and it did not break the bank!

Delicious food! You can share the baguette and it came with a delicious carrot side dish. I got the avocado and green bean toast, it was amazing! It was fun to people watch while we ate.

Classic plates & seasonally-inspired creations are served in a warm setting with an open kitchen.
I made a reservation here on my solo trip for lunch but I honestly wish I would’ve stayed in the arts district all day. The area around the restaurant was cute with different places to explore and the food! I ended up sitting at the bar and not only was the staff friendly but the other people at the bar as well. I guess good food does that to people. I got the bread with a few different options for spreads and then the black garlic pasta and when I tell you it was to die for I truly mean it. It has last meal potential. The black garlic added such a nice depth and sweetness to the dish. I would visit Vegas again if only for this pasta.

Been wanting to try this place FOREVER and finally had the opportunity to. So glad we stuck with Esther’s bc there are so many other Italian dining options. This establishment is off the strip, which automatically makes it a plus. As much as I love the Vegas strip, restaurants can be overpriced for mediocre food. Esther’s is the total opposite. Quality food, tasty food, and NOT overpriced. I forgot our server’s name, but he was awesome. He was attentive and gave us good recommendations. FYI – entrees here are pretty darn big. I don’t think it’s meant to be had family style, but you certainly can. There is a bread service you must get. It’s basically huge loaves of bread, with a few different spreads. We did the eight-spread option which was so yummy; we got a taste of everything. The food is good, the craft cocktails were good. I would definitely recommend this place. Didn’t take note of the parking but we took an uber and it was a short 10-min/$10 uber from the strip. Looking forward to going back again someday.

We ordered : - Cauliflower alla romana - Meatballs - Prosciutto & Peach Pizza - Lobster Pasta We really enjoyed the pizza and pasta - absolutely delicious. The cauliflower was great but we felt it could have used a dipping sauce (albeit it may be our personal preference). The meatballs were good but not a standout. Overall the service and food were amazing and we would definitely go back.

This is the one of the best pasta,pizza, and bread I’ve ever had. I love how fresh the pasta tasted and cooked perfectly Al dente. I felt like I was in Italy and the food was cooked with love from a nonna. Service was ok our our server could have been more attentive to us but other than that I would recommend this spot.

Nice ambiance located in downtown. Great food with fresh ingredients. Back in parking right in front of restaurant. Sourdough bread with interesting yet super tasting butters: basil ricotta, anchovy butter, and cambozola (I think). You can’t go wrong because they’re all so damn good. My friend got the mushroom pizza and I got Esther’s meatball sub that was deliciously delectable! Service was meh but that’s because it was busy during lunch time. Reservations required.

Refined, Bay Area–style destination for steak, seafood & cocktails with a cozy, old-school vibe.
If you have not had the pleasure of visiting this hidden gem, make plans. It is a block off of Fremont street, situated next to a biker bar, and it is my new favorite steakhouse in Vegas. We ordered the charcuterie board, which was fantastic. Then the flat iron steak with a side of cream spinach. The steak was perfect. The temperature was spot on, it was flavorful and juicy. One of the best steaks I’ve eaten that I did not cook myself. The cream spinach was absolutely incredible. Creamy and buttery with bread crumbs. To top off the amazing food, the staff was phenomenal. We were greeted at the door where the host informed my wife there were no bathrooms. HE WAS JOKING! She almost panicked before he broke a smile. We sat at the bar where Marty and Todd treated us like family. This has replaced another steakhouse in a cellar as my favorite in Vegas. Do yourself a favor and eat here!!

First time here and it was great! There is street parking out front for pay, but not much. There is a parking garage pretty close by, that's where we decided to park. When you walk in it definitely has an old school vibe. We came at 4pm on a Monday holiday and had a reservation, it wasn't too busy. I love the booths because they are sort of tucked away into their own sections, so it feels very intimate! Our server was Mohammed, and words can't express how great he was! He recommended a drink for me, the black cherry lemon drop, and it was so good! I don't like strong alcohol but this tasted very good, had a sugar rim and a black cherry garnish. My husband got the white wine. Bread with a butter/balsamic combo was put on the table and that was super yummy. I rarely see white balsamic used, but it was very good. We started with the artichoke appetizer which was lightly fried and placed over a light sauce. My main was the spicy shrimp and scallop linguini, which Mohammed said was his family's favorite as well. OMG! SO. DANG. GOOD! I loved it, there was a lot of sauce which made it perfect for dipping the bread and the portion was very large. My husband got the salmon with a side of asparagus. He really liked the salmon and I think the asparagus was cooked perfectly. We were celebrating my bday and they gave me a little card and a creme brule which was such a nice touch. In total for both of our drinks, an appetizer, 2 seafood mains, and a side we spent about $150. Nice atmosphere, really good food, and outstanding service from Mohammed. We will absolutely be coming here again!

Went to TGG on for my birthday dinner on 6/15, and it was absolutely amazing!! From the moment we were greeted at the door, to our awesome server (believe her name was Rebecca). The drinks, food, ambiance , customer service, and the overall experience was more than i expected. They really made us feel welcome and grateful for patronage. And surprisingly - they even presented me with a birthday card and yummy tiramisu for my bday dessert!! I also really appreciated the manager coming over and checking on us, and wishing me a hbday. I'll definitely will be dining again next time in Vegas and will for sure recommend!!! Thank you again for a wonderful birthday experience! :)

We stayed at the Golden Nugget. This is right down Fremont a couple of blocks and around the corner. Gets you away from the madness for a minute. We wanted a really nice meal without spending a fortune and Triple George Grill was perfect!

Buzzy Thai spot offering noodles & curries with an outdoor patio that hosts DJ performances.
My favorite dishes are Garlic Honey Wings and Fry Eggplant. The 3 color curry and Pad Thai are fine but unfortunately the Tom Yum Soup was not right at all. I didn't taste the flavor of lemongrass and it was way too acid. It is a reasonable Thai food restaurant but not authentic.

I found this restaurant via a Reddit thread and I am so happy I did a little research to find it because we had an amazing experience! The flavors were incredible! Service was amazing! Our server, Jordan did a fantastic job explaining the details and flavor profiles of each dish. My husband and I have agreed that this is a must any time we’re in Vegas!

Le Thai was amazing! On Fremont St and gluten free options! Their menu is very well labeled with dietary options and good prices as well. They offer seating outside and inside. If you want to-go orders, there is a window you can order from outside on the patio. This is a go to place for us!

Fantastic Thai food and friendly service downtown Las Vegas. Arguably the best Thai in the area. No reservations so we went early on a Saturday and got a table immediately. I hear there can often be a wait. It's worth waiting for. We got the Waterfall Beef with sticky rice. The beef was marinated and came with a delicious vinegary sauce. Everything about this dish worked. We will order again next time we go Chicken satay had a good char on it and was tender and was great without a drip of sauce on it. But you want that peanut sauce. Best I've had in a very long time. Finally, we shared the "Awesome Noodles" with shrimp with spiciness level 2 out of 5. It was very similar to a Pad See Ew but somehow different. Less soy, more spice. 2 was enough to feel it but not enough to sweat. The combinations were perfect. Service was prompt, professional, and friendly. The bar was fully stocked and had an assortment of local beers on tap. If you like Thai food, get here ASAP.

It is amazing that there is a nice bar / restaurant at downtown, especially it is just right next to the entrance of Fremont Street! The atmosphere was really nice. The bar area looked well maintained and clean, and the dining area looked elegant! I love being surrounded by so many beautiful plants. The food was delicious. The sauce of grilled chicken tasted exotic. I loved the refreshing salad as well. It was a nice place to eat and enjoy some drinks. I will recommend this place to my friends and family!

Laid-back eatery for an eclectic New American menu, from smoked pork belly to tuna tartare.
Great food, service was quick and very clean! I think the ambiance lacked a little bit in terms of creating the best mood for brunch (maybe some music might have worked?) Also, frequent check backs from the server might have helped! Recommended for brunch and specially for Southern chicken sandwich.

This is a cute little place. Came here early Sunday for the brunch, stayed for the bottomless Mimosas. We sat outside and had the chicken and waffles, and poached egg with salmon and wings. All the food was delicious, and our server was extremely attentive and great. Even the owner was around and stopped by our table to exchange a few words. The food was really great, but really what stole the show was the mimosas. I think there's over a dozen different flavors, and each round you can get a different flavor. You have 90 minutes to try all the flavors. Go ahead and try out this place, you won't regret it.

Really nice Diner with fantastic food! Great atmosphere and great service. The food is really creative and delicious. We had the chicken & waffle as well as the perfect burger. Both very delicious. Service was quick and friendly. All around a great experience.

Good place for a brunch. I tried the Belgian waffle and it was decent. Attended as a group of 8 and the service was still good enough and we didn’t have to wait for long. They have free parking across the street so don’t spend your money for the parking use it to tip them instead ;) Recommendation : - breakfast pizza - Belgian waffle

I've been here quite a few times mainly for brunch. 2 of the 3 times the customer service was just ok. Bad customer service will ruin my experience anywhere. They have great drinks bottomless mimosas and good margaritas try the blood orange margarita delicious! I have a English friend who loves their irish breakfast. I would still recommend trying this place out. its also in a walkable area. Enjoy!

Local fixture for jumbo omelets & other breakfast & lunch diner fare in a family-friendly setting.
Our first time to eat here and this restaurant will be a staple for us going forward. This is the best breakfast we’ve had in Vegas (it tops Peppermill, Egg and I, Blueberry Hill which are all good, but not this good!). We both ordered the Grandpa Bill’s and shared a waffle on the side and everything was perfection! Our waitress, Jenny, was excellent and so sweet. We highly recommend this place!

One of the best breakfast joints I’ve gone to. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was nice and comfortable. The food was really great and each of the omelets had distinct flavors and were well made. Really enjoyed the pumpkin spice bread as well. Even without any nostalgia attached to this eatery, I still loved eating here.
5 / 5
Good, freshly made food at reasonable prices. The menu is much larger than you would expect. They have lunch, sandwiches, and steaks too. We tried the chicken and waffles, the pork chop, the scrambled eggs, and the house potatoes. All were very good. Don't forget to check out the specials board for interesting items with extra special prices. We will definitely go again and try more of their menu.

Casual, compact joint lures locals with a focused menu of regional Japanese noodle dishes.
I was pleasantly surprised by the food here! I loved the unique asthetic of the black garlic ramen. It was delicious and had wonderful flavour and the noodles were chewy! We sat at the counter. The interior was fine, I found it quite hot inside as it was an open kitchen with the Vegas heat. The service was great as well!

Amazing ramen and Gyoza!! This is the best and cheapest ramen I’ve ever had in the US. Very fast and attentive service as well! Highly recommend if you’re in Vegas and craving ramen 🍜😋

Love this place! Simple, inexpensive, delicious! Monta is my favorite ramen place. There’s a few places in Vegas that make it hard to not stop at instead of trying something new, and this is one of them. Their tonkotsu ramen broth is so rich, almost creamy, and fills your mouth with savory umami flavor. We’ve tried all of the different broths for ramen here and they’re all good, but the tonkotsu is best! The fresh noodles are perfect for slurping and have a nice soft chew to them. The pork belly is flavorful, fall apart tender, with a melt in your mouth fatty deliciousness. If you like spice, get a side of chili paste to add some good heat to your ramen. I also love the kimchi fried rice here. I think it’s also the best I’ve had. The house made gyoza are also very good. Some of my favorite items are: Tonkotsu Ramen ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kimchi Fried Rice ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ House made gyoza ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My guide on how I use the 5 star system: ⭐️ = Not good ⭐️⭐️ = Not terrible, but would not get again ⭐️⭐️⭐️ = Solid, but I’d try something else before this again ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ = Really liked it! You should try this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ = Loved it! Must try I’ll make adjustments to my ratings after subsequent visits. If you see a .3 or .7 it means: .3 = Wasn’t as good the 2nd or last time I tried it .7 = This was better the 2nd or last time I tried it.

Monta! Still my favorite ramen shop in the entire USA. Yes, not just in Vegas. The whole country! Noodles are super authentic thin Tonkotsu ramen noodle. Order it “Barikata” so that it’ll be cooked firm which is the way most people in Japan prefer Tonkotsu ramen noodles! Broth is also on point. A truly Japanese quality ramen bowl. On a plus note it is not overpriced! How great is that! Good service as well. 12 out of 10!
5 / 5
If I am in the mood for ramen this is my favorite place to go to. I stumbled upon this place a while back based on reviews from Yelp. The restaurant is busy so you should check in on Yelp and put yourself on the wait-list. Other than that, I always make a point to come back.
