You can count on Las Vegas to bring out your wild child, but these restaurants will take your trip from adventurous to amorous. So, bust out those credit cards (these places arenít cheap!) and put on a collared shirt (how romantic can you be in a tank top?) and get ready to impress your special someone with some candlelight and a bit of bubbly. Here are our five favorite restaurants to visit when we're in the mood for love:
Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris
A restaurant in a fake Eiffel Tower in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip couldíve been ridiculously cheesy, but this place gets everything right. From personal service (ask for Lyle!) and the awesome views of the Bellagio Fountains to the velvety red decor, itís like Valentineís Day every day inside the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.
When Gordon Ramsay Steak opened at Paris Las Vegas last year, it was the toughest table in town but garnered pretty darn good reviews from the fortunate early-goers. Another VegasChatter writer gambled on the menu's higher prices and walked away with one of his top five steaks of the year.
With Ramsay expanding his restaurant empire seemingly into any space with a heartbeat over the past year, we wondered how his Vegas first held up under his ever diversifying attention. When the occasion recently arose to splurge on a unique dining experience, this writer took the plunge for his first visit to GR Steak.
National Humor Month / Caesars Entertainment / Harrah's / Paris Las Vegas / Flamingo / The Quad / Bally's / → All Tags
With April Fool's Day being so anticipated and expected these days, it's hard to play a proper prank -- something that was obvious to anyone who followed along with the mainstream news last week.
Companies made their best attempts at corporate humor. Google pretended they were introducing a few new products, such as Google Nose -- a joke that fell flat on its face. We also saw other phony products and services such as pizza-flavored Tic-Tacs, glass-bottom planes, and promises of good-looking delivery boys. Um? Then we have juvenile stuff like this floating around YouTube which had us scratching our head. Is this really the best we've got?
The saving grace is that Vegas, in particular Caesars Entertainment, is celebrating humor (or the lack thereof) all month long in the form of discounts to comedy shows and performances. Here's a roundup of the deals so you can see which tickle your funny bone most:

Every casino has a concept which may or may not be seen as a theme depending on how obvious it. Wynn, Aria and Cosmopolitan have a concept behind the design, but these casinos are not seen as themed because it's not as
cartoonish†obvious as the Eiffel Tower at†Paris or the castle turrets surrounding Excalibur. There hasn't been an obviously themed casino in Las Vegas since The Venetian and The Palazzo were completed in 1999 and 2007, respectively. That could all be changing with†Resorts World Las Vegas.
Resorts World Las Vegas is set to open in 2016 and will have a heavy Asian influence throughout the $2 billion property. Resorts World Las Vegas will include a series of bronze and gold glass towers flanking Asian-style red pagodas, lagoons and fountains. There is even plans for a replica of the Great Wall of China and discussion on whether or not they will have a panda exhibit. The inclusion of a water park definitely makes Resorts World Las Vegas the first outwardly family friendly casino on The Strip in years.
Technology / Flamingo / Planet Hollywood / Paris Las Vegas / CES / Harrah's / → All Tags
Coinciding with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week, Caesars Entertainment debuted some pretty cool technology for their casinos. Actually, the TecTiles NFC (Near Field Technology) tags are only available at Caesars Palace, Harrah's, Paris and Planet Hollywood, for now. Before diving into what exactly this new tech stuff provides, we should tell you that it's only available to those of you with a Samsung Nexus mobile phone or tablet. (No iPhone, boo!)
NFC tags simply deliver information to a mobile device. By touching a mobile device to one of the tags, Caesars will be able to send details and information for different casino games, shows, shopping, etc. Through these tags, you'll be able to receive gaming tutorials, buy tickets to shows, and more. The NFC sign above is located when you walk into Paris from the valet area. The NFC tags have also been placed on slot machines throughout the casinos so you can just grab the information when playing a game.

He didn't make our list of hunkiest headliners (despite an unsubtle lobbying attempt by yours truly), but Taylor Hicks still has reason to brag. He's being
rescued promoted from Bally's to Paris Las Vegas.

Coming in 2013 -- Gordon Ramsay Pizzeria to Bally's? Gordon Ramsay Italiano to The Linq? We'll just have to wait and see after 2012 brought us a steakhouse, pub and burger bar all by the loud-mouthed chef. The last two opening just within the last week.
Gordon Ramsay Steak was an instant hit; so much that the hungry are still finding it hard to book a table, even though it opened at Paris back in May. Now, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood have expanded the chef's Vegas dominance.

We love steak and are always excited to try a new or different steakhouse. This year brought a few new steakhouses to Las Vegas. Some were winners and some weren't. We visited many of them, but we also visited many existing steakhouses for the first time, too.
Here are our favorites among what we've tried out this year. You can see last year's favorite steakhouses here.
When it comes to the now four-month-old Gordon Ramsay Steak, the raves continue with Yelpers calling it "simply the best," "worth every penny" and "OUT-FREAKING-STANDING." That's if you can get a reservation, though.
A VegasChatter fan dropped us a line yesterday to let us know that getting someone on the line at the popular Paris steakhouse was proving neigh impossible for him:

Starting September 1, ticket prices will be slashed to a starting price of $48 up to $157.32 per ticket. Currently, they are going for a range of $100.30 to $226.80. (Those prices don't include fees.)
We're not sure what the reason is for the half-off price chop. Everyone loves Jersey Boys thanks to its fast-pace, captivating storyline and tons of great hits. And we're not just making a blanket statement here. Check out these reviews on TripAdvisor.

For each, you'll need to "like" each resort (Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Rio, Paris, Harrah's, Bally's and Flamingo, respectfully -- sorry, Bill's) on Foursquare and then check into three separate venues at each hotel over a 48-hour period to unlock each badge. (If you don't know how to "like" a venue on Foursquare, Pulse of Vegas explains how.)
Below you'll find an image of each badge (warning: logos
may will appear smaller on your mobile device) as well as the reward you'll score. Most will land you 'free, front-of-line access' to the venue each hotel wants to get you into the most.
Caesars Palace' Emperor Badge
The real Caesar didnít stay here, but you have and youíve got the badge to prove it! Party like the Las Vegas legend you are with free, front-of-line access to Pure Nightclub for an entire year! Rooftop parties prohibited. Visit TR Center to redeem.

Our recent stay downtown and at various Caesars properties showed a lot of similarities. The people we saw eating, drinking and gambling (both downtown and on The Strip) are cut from the same cloth. They were mostly low rollers who were just out to have a good time, in their own skin. People were drinking and cocktailing and were, of course, rocking their souvenir drinks from 50 ounce Red Bull/vodkas to football mugs filled with cheap beer.
There's nothing fancy about downtown, Bally's, Paris or Flamingo and this writer is cool with that. Everything at each of these places is low key and nobody is bothersome or judgmental. These people are just out for a good time.
