If you're into great steaks and ice-cold martinis, have I got a place for you! The Steak House has been a top-rated place for years. I just never wanted to believe it since it is housed in the horrifying Circus Circus. I'm a believer now! Once inside, you are in a dark, quiet, calm world. We had reservations, which are an absolute necessity, since this is a small, popular room. We showed up on time and were seated within 2 minutes. We had a booth that was classic tuck-and-roll leather. It was comfortable and classy all the way. The whole room is like that.
The grill area is a prominent feature of the room. The chefs working in there are truly masters, and I think it's fitting that their performance art is always on display. Grilled items are cooked over live charcoal, not the briquettes you buy at the store. It’s the real deal.
Both my boyfriend and I had the surf and turf. The filet mignon was 7 ounces, and the lobster tail was a good size. You get a salad and get to pick from fresh vegetables or garlic mashed potatoes. I chose the mashed potatoes, and my boyfriend chose the fresh steamed vegetables. You also are served fresh rolls. I must say that the steak was probably the second to best steak I've had, and the lobster was the best lobster I ever had. The dinner was reasonably priced. (Steaks entrées are in the $30 range and include a potato and salad.)
It was also great to see the chef manage like 30 steaks on the grill without breaking a sweat. The atmosphere in the restaurant is old-world charm, very dark and quiet. Call in advance and make reservations. We were there on a Wednesday night around 6pm, and because we had reservations, were seated at once. I heard other guests without reservations being told the wait was about 2 hours. While dinning, you honestly don't realize you're about 100 feet away from utter chaos (the casino in Circus Circus). You must go to this restaurant and give yourself a treat. After dinner, run like heck outta of there.
