Took my best customer and his wife here for our annual dinner and had a completely awful experience. The $70 Rib cap had gristle running through the whole thing. It took an HOUR AND A HALF to get our meal. It was obvious the meat had been sitting for an extended period of time once it finally got there. I had to tackle our waiter for every glass of water and every request. The manager came out and my customer minced no words explaining how un-spectacular the whole experience had been and we still got a $400 bill for 3 people. I've had many restaurant jobs - I don't ever complain and it certainly takes a whole lot to get me to come online to do it, but I've had better experiences at Raffles and the Buffet than this place. Unless you are a 8-12 top - expect to get the least of your waiter's attention. Worst dining experience in Las Vegas in 13 years.
This place is awful... You've been warned.. The bill came to ~$250 for two people. Their filet mignon was decent. They overcook their lamb, their idea of medium is to char the meat to the bone, depleting all succulence from the lamb. Their mashed potatoes tasted like Betty Crocker instant mix mashed potatoes, which aren't the worst, but I don't want to pay $12 for a serving of what tastes like instant mashed potatoes. As for the atmosphere, the tables are way too close together for a steakhouse. The table next to us was less than a foot away. The atmosphere is cheap, industrial, cold and sterile; once cool, but now reserved for mall food courts and hospital cafeterias built in the 1990s. Infact, I felt like we were in an overpriced food court at the mall. To top it off, I made a reservation over the phone and told them we were celebrating a birthday. With a bill of ~$250 for two people, you'd think they'd make a small gesture for one's birthday? NOPE. No lil slice of cake, no ice cream. N-a-d-a. They just took our money and ran. Maybe I should have asked the waitress if she was going to bring a dessert out for my birthday, but maybe I thought, I shouldn't have to. There is no excuse for this lack of service, as we were the first or second table seated after they opened for dinner so they weren't super-busy yet. As we walked out I asked the hostess at the front if they do anything for birthday dinners and she said "yes they always decorate a dessert" for the guest. I informed her that we received no such dessert. She tells me that she doesn't know why they didn't do that for us because the birthday was noted on the reservation. Her idea on how to rectify the situation? - She said "I'll speak to the server." So how does that provide quality service to us as we are leaving? How about offering a dessert or drink at the bar? Nope, she'll just "speak to the server." Why, thank you. Don't bother with this place... there are too many other better steakhouses in Vegas in terms of quality, atmosphere, and service.
Lovely last night in Vegas meal...
Very pleased with our meal at Stripsteak. Mom, dad, and I went here for our last night meal and were glad we did.
The waitress was very bubbly and cheerful with a good attitude and eager to please personality. The comp duck fat fries were a nice start, as well as the foccacia.
I was in the mood for pork chops, so I asked for those. Tender, thick and juicy cuts. Also they gladly replaced the sides (greens and grits) with mac and cheese and scallion potatoe cakes with creme fraische. Yum!!!
Mom and dad enjoyed their Prix Fixe menu Prime Rib with a few sides too. They got beignets for dessert too. They gave us caramel corn for the road, nice touch.
We were very pleased and will return again!
Not my top rated. I come to Las Vegas every year for the sole purpose of fine dining so I consider myself an expert on cuisine. I have eaten at almost every good restaurant on the strip and I can say easily that I would pass on Strip Steak. I had a beet salad which was excellent but the steak (8 oz of Kobe beef) was very oridinary. I really didn't taste the flavor because all I tasted was truffle. The mac and cheese was very strong, the trio of potatoes was just ok and the duck fat fries were so so. We did not have bad meal but not a stellar one either. Delmonio's is sill my top pick for a steakhouse in Vegas and I stand by that.
Excellent Steak, Great Atmosphere....PRICEY!.
My girlfriend and I had a great dining experience at StripSteak. Of course, we read the previous 11 reviews before dining and everything that was said in the reviews matched up. Here's a summary:
1. Very nice decor- Contemporary steakhouse motif with hard lines and earth tones. There's glass all around the restaurant, so seating isn't very 'private'.
2. We ordered the rib-eye- Nice and juicy steak. Duck fat fries are tasty, but over-rated.
3. Excellent service- Our server was fun, outgoing, engaging, and efficient.
4. Very expensive- Our bill was $200 and we felt like it should have been worth around $125.
If you have some extra cash to drop and are looking to impress, this might be the right place for you. But, if you are looking for great steak at a great value (like Morton's or Ruth's Chris), skip the StripSteak!
One of the best steaks I've ever had.
I came to Las Vegas wanting to eat one great meal during my stay. Stripsteak did not dissappoint. Everything from the greeters, waitstaff, decor, food- it was all spot on. Our meal started with complimentry trio of duck fat fries with dipping sauces. My boyfriend ordered their 3 course fall tasting menu for $59 which began with a seafood chowder with crab butter. He really enjoyed it. I started with the foie gras sliders. The foie gras was perfectly cooked and insanely delicous. For main courses, he had chicken with truffled mac and cheese and I had the 8oz American Kobe ribeye cap. His chicken was great, but we both felt the truffle was just too overpowering in the mac and cheese. My ribeye cap was the best steak I've ever had- rich, incrediably marbled, flavorful and tender. At $70, it's not a cheap cut, but wow, it was an experience. I love steak, but 8oz of wagyu ribeye cap was plenty! For desert I had mini donuts with a trio of sauces- salted carmel, bitter chocolate and carmel ice cream. The salted carmel sauce was really tasty.
I would eat at Stripsteak again in a heartbeat!
Stripsteak, at Mandalay Bay, is a home run..
For years, way before the tough times, I have been saying that Las Vegas restaurants are the best group in the world for food and decor. Often, though, even if we have good professional service, restaurants seem to be understaffed, which negatively impacts the overall experience.
This definitely was not the case with Michael Mina's Stripsteak. Our waiter, "Hammer," was superb, but so was the hostess, the bussers, the sommelier, and two managers. We had an elderly gentleman with us who had a bit of a noise problem. Without being asked, the staff immediately turned down the music. Furthermore, the manager even personally walked him to the restroom.
Now, let's talk food. I was with a party of four, who were all going to see the musical "Mama Mia" at Mandalay Bay. Our challenge was to have a deluxe yet "simple" meal, in 1.5 hours: a great steak for the host, vegetarian for the granddaughter, and fish or foul for the ladies. (As you already know, I will eat anything if it is delicious).
I don't know if "gourmet steak house" is an oxymoron, but that is exactly what Stripsteak is. Everybody knows that great steakhouses have great meat. But, surprisingly, vegetarians also do well at great steakhouses as they always tend to have great sides.
And the sides here are very special. We had delicious carrots that had a special orange flavor. The mac and cheese had a truffle sauce that worked perfectly, and the cauliflower with curry was fabulous. The whole fried chicken is great, but way too big for even a hungry person. If you have it, split it.
Do not confuse the Bibb lettuce wedge with a classic iceberg lettuce wedge. This is more like a chunky, fancy salad, with a delightful dressing that was a tangy avocado tarragon flavor: very good, but not the norm.
Overall, a great place I can honestly recommend.
Trendy, Eye Catching Decor, Average Steak, Excellent Service.... Well, out of my group of friends I'm the only one that wasnt impressed with my filet mignon... Then again I consume a lof of steak. The sides were great, mac & cheese sooo good! The fries LOVE! It is deff very trendy, pretty people, not stuffy, service was on point! By I'm sorry Strip Steak I will stick to my regular at N9NE!
Best Steak and side dishes. Best Steak and Side Dishes. First off when you are seated you are promptly brought these delicious duck fat french fries ( i know it sounds weird but trust me there great) with 3 different yummy sauces. Their steaks melts in your mouth. The side dishes are to die for especially the truffle mac and cheese.. This steakhouse is a must. If your going by cab they usually drop you off at the front enterance of the Mandalay Bay. Give yourself ten minutes to get to the restaraunt. You have to go via through the casino, unless there is a secret entrance I've never had the privilage of being dropped off at. Bon Appetit!!!
If you like food that melts in your mouth and gives you a post-orgasmic smile - go here. We were met by a pleasant hostess and were taken care of by a cheerful and very accommodating waitress.
The American Kobe Steak is amazing. It was my first time having it and it blew me away.
What more can I say, spend the $ and give it a shot. You won't regret it.
