Review: Top of the World Restaurant at the Stratosphere (Las Vegas)

On our last night in Las Vegas,迈克和我去了Top of the Worldrestaurant at the Stratosphere hotel.世界之巅高出拉斯维加斯大道800多英尺。The restaurant revolves 360 degrees every hour and 20 minutes.It's fancy,更精致的饭菜,and has a price point that Mike and I would generally avoid.但自从我们度假后,餐馆所以unique,we put the $$$$ price point behind us (or below us,ha ha) and took the elevator up!!

The elevator goes up at 20 miles an hour (clears three floors per second) and there's an attendant in each elevator.(Their shift is literally eight hours in an elevator,greeting people coming in and out!)

景色美极了。这真的是一次终生难忘的经历(好吧,except for people who work there I suppose!;)) We purposely made our reservation at night so that we could see all of the twinkly Las Vegas lights.

The average cost of a dish is around $45 and that doesn't include a side dish.Side dishes are $10 each.We started with a complimentary bread basket that came with three different butters (plain,pesto and orange).

All the breads were very good as was the plain and pesto butter.The orange butter was a bit too sweet for our liking.There was also some kind of cracker/chip piece that was delicious!Of course I am partial to chip-like foods because I looooove chips,lol.

Mike ordered the"Midwestern Free Range Chicken Breast filled with Three Cheese Fondue"with balsamic essence,fingerling potatoes,oven-roasted tomatoes and natural jus.($44).他说他的鸡肉很多汁,但有些地方奶酪太多了。He liked it,但肯定有更好的(当然不到44美元)。I tried it and it was tasty but I'm not a fan of the balsamic essence.

He also ordered the"两次烤土豆加培根,帕尔马干酪和洋葱”as his side.(10美元)。He loved the twice-baked potato but didn't like that you had to pay extra for a side.

我点了“Roasted Iowa Pork Tenderloin with Apple and Cranberry Chutney"(bacon-wrapped tenderloin,山药泥,demi-glace with palm vinegar,$44).The"bacon-wrapped"part really caught my eye in the menu.I thought the pork itself wasn't anything special and actually at some parts was kind of dry but the bacon and puree really helped boost the yum factor.

My chosen side dish was the"Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes"($10) and really,who has any complaints 优德体育about mashed potatoes?Good as taters can be (but like Mike,I thought it should have been included with the $44 main entree).

Mike is afraid of heights so he was very aware throughout the night that we were that high in the air.我一点也不认为这是个问题,但是餐厅的旋转速度肯定更快,more noticeable pace than I could handle.我整晚头晕得很厉害,所以没什么意思。Still you put that stuff aside when you think 优德体育about where you are,how great the view is,and how neat it is that there are skydivers falling past our window throughout the evening!!

There was a professional photographer who went around the tables taking pictures and then at the end of the night offering up printed copies for us to purchase.你觉得有义务去买它,因为它们真的把所有的照片打印出来,并且已经把一些照片放进了相框里。We bought two photos that comes in a frame for $44.当然很陡峭,通常我们不会买那样的东西,因为我们很节俭,但我们又一次度假了。

It was a really nice keepsake to be able to take home with us!!

Overall I would say the food is nothing special.It looks great but tastes average and is definitely pricey,但我绝对推荐你去世界顶级餐厅独自体验一下。Great service,amazing view,and something we've been talking up to our friends and family ever since we got back.我们去维加斯的其他朋友都没有尝试过,这是不同的。Dining at the ‘top of the world' made for a great night out.It was very romantic and I think everyone should give it a try when they're in Vegas!:)

I will also say despite the food not being spectacular,I wasverypleased that the portions were big!I love big portions and one of my biggest pet peeves 优德体育about going to a restaurant (especially if it's an expensive restaurant) is if the portions are TEENY and I'm still hungry afterwards!Pleased to announce that Top of the World's portions left my tummy fully satisfied.

    The food look pretty good and I trust your judgement on what it taste like.The only thing I might disagree on is the potatoes.从照片上看,他们看起来可能只是有点太乳脂了。An I right?While I don't like a lumpy potato,by any means,this one almost looked a little too fluffy.没有足够的一致性。Am I wrong or did the picture just give the wrong impression??

      Hmmm… perhaps just a tad too creamy but not too creamy enough for it to be noticable!I enjoyed it!And I think there were some lumps hidden underneath.误导的画面。:)

  • Making my way through Spruce Grove restaurants slowly but surely (slowly because I'm still making my way through Edmonton restaurants too.😂) I really enjoyed my first visit to @broadwayandgrand,a cute little spot specializing in sandwiches,鸡尾酒,手工啤酒和咖啡。They do handcrafted sodas like this pomegranate one too ♥️ and their truffle fries and mac n cheese were also excellent.Can't wait for a return visit (and a fuller blog post,soon!).....#yeg #yegfood #yegblog #yegblogger #edmonton #edmontonfood #exploreedmonton #sprucegrove #sprucegrovefood #edmontonalberta #explorealberta #pomegranatesoda #handcraftedsodas #broadwayandgrand #fbcigers #canadianblogger

  • I'm quite a fan of this Northern Chinese style egg and chive dumpling from @huis_wontons99!🙌🏻🤤 The restaurant owners invited my family to come try a few of their specialties at their new-ish south Edmonton location (they also have a #SherwoodPark restaurant) and we really enjoyed our meal—so much so that my parents even went back on their own after our first visit!♥️ This small family business makes all of their dumplings and wontons in-house.They're real good.I also am partial to hot and sour soup (theirs is great) and I thought their Harbin Noodle Salad (only listed on their take-out or Chinese menu,so just ask for it!) was also amazing—light,flavourful and refreshing vermicelli,tofu,pork,cucumber,with a sesame vinegar dressing.我可以每天吃。Same with the dumplings!🤤 Thanks for inviting me to try your food,惠的馄饨!Happy Saturday everyone!.....#yeg #yegfood #exploreedmonton #edmonton #dumplings #northernstyle #yegchinesefood #chinesefood #yegblog #yegblogger #yegfoodie #explorealberta #dumplinglife #asianfood #southedmonton
