Top of the World Restaurant at the Stratosphere Hotel Tower Casino
I don't have to impress my wife, but if I did I would take her to Top of The World for lunch, get a glass of something with bubbles and share the Tuna Tataki and Asian Salad, a Bahn Mi sandwich and possibly try to fit in the steak with the peppercorn sauce. We would end the meal with the cheesecake lollipops. If I did that I would be a star and then I most likely would leap off the tower. So do you need to impress someone or just impress yourself?

What it's like at Top of the World Restaurant Las Vegas?
It is simple to discuss the view when you talk about Top of the World restaurant but considering that Chef Claude Gaty has really taken a close look at what works well with the view and the clientele of the Stratosphere, I must say you might forget that you can see all of Las Vegas during your meal. The dining room is casual and fun during lunch and only slightly more subdued during dinner. You will be amazed by the lights of Las Vegas regardless of what you order.

How's the food at Top of the World Restaurant Las Vegas?
My notes for Top of The World Restaurant are peculiar because I kept mentioning the word “fresh” or “summer” or “outdoors.” The flavors are light, they dance around your mouth and they make you feel as if the sky is blue and the temperature is perfect and you have just finished a glass and a half of Prosecco.

What you should try at Top of the World Restaurant Las Vegas:

  • Grilled Portabello and Buffalo Mozzarella – Yes, I have had this plenty of times before, but the ingredients are superb and the way the roasted bell pepper cradles the Portabello is beautiful.
  • Ahi Tuna Tataki and Asian Salad – This will soon be my new “go to” summer dish.
  • Steak – How do you like it? Mâitre d’ butter, Brandy peppercorn sauce, Mushroom red wine sauce, Horseradish crust and demi-glace, Blue cheese crust and demi-glace, Roasted garlic Dijon crust and demi-glace
  • Ricotta Gnocchi Bolognese – Comfort food in a red sauce with tiny pillows full of flavor.
