What it’s like at Morels Steakhouse at Palazzo Las Vegas?
The dining room is open and spacious at Morels so you won’t actually feel as if you could have a romantic meal but it does retain the casual upscale feel that is prominent around the Palazzo. It is very much like having a meal at your wealthy friends home who just so happened to be your college roommate. Everything is nice, but nice in a non-pretentious way.
Have a drink beforehand in the lounge or out on the patio with a view of the Las Vegas strip. The vantage point from Morels is such that you can see the Sirens of TI across the street or look up and down Las Vegas Blvd. as the city moves by before your eyes. This is one of the best before dinner drink places in town.
How’s the food at Morels Steakhouse at Palazzo Las Vegas?
If you love steak you will clearly be in bovine heaven as Morels features quality cuts from the dry aged to the Japanese Wagyu. You’ll also be treated to an array of cheese selections that will have you drinking wine and sampling some of the tastiest fromage you have ever set on your tongue. But, you will soon be treated to the iced seafood bar where the delectable candy of the sea will take you over the top.
You’ll get a steak that is grilled in their 1200 degree broiler and don’t forget the sauces. The French love their sauces and at Morels you’ll do the happy dance with their Bordelaise.
I would warn that this much good food will entice you to have a lot of wine. Take your time and speak to the Sommelier, make sure to point out that we are in a recession and that you need good advice on good wine for a great price. Be honest with the guy picking the bottle for you and you will be surprised by the quality and the cost.
What you should try at Morels Steakhouse at Palazzo Las Vegas:
- Grand Plateau De Mer – a selection of seafood that will have you booking a vacation to coast. 1 lobster, 8 shrimp, 12 oysters, Octopus ceviche. ½ Dungeness crab. This is good but see if you can make a deal with your server to bring out just the Octopus ceviche and you’ll save yourself a little cash and still enjoy a taste of just how good the seafood bar is at Morels.
- Petite Romaine Heart Salad –Sure it is a glorified Caesars Salad but it is made tableside and the dressing is decadent enough to make you eat all of your greens.
- Pan Sauteed Sole – Yeah, it’s simple but incredibly delicious. Not sure if it was the flaky fish or the White Win Pan Jus or the vegetables but this meal was a good light alternative to so much you find in Las Vegas.
- Steak Frites – Yeah, once again simple French Bistro fare that does the trick. Meat and potatoes, I know I’m simple, but good food does not have to be complicated.
- 32 oz Cote De Boeuf – Yes, this is the beef that makes us carnivores, this is the dish that questions the sanity of vegetarians. It is precisely how beef should be served, cut tableside, a few vegetables and a glass of red wine. $58 per person seems a little unreasonable before you slice into the dish and it falls apart in your mouth. As you savor the flavor, the cost seems insignificant.
