We read a mention of the Golden Steer in Saveur magazine and thought to give it a try when we visited last week. On the outside, it doesn't look like much, a bit off the strip. It claims to be the oldest steakhouse in Vegas, founded in 1958. However, when you step inside, it is 60's, old school luxe. Deep leather banquettes, Sinatra and Dean Martin on the stereo, low lighting and waiters in tuxedos. The menu is also old school steakhouse. I had the petite filet and my husband has a New York strip and lobster. The martinis were perfect as was the wine. The steak was the best I've had in years and I finished it all (a rarity). The waiters and staff were wonderful, even calling us a limo when we left and we paid the same price as a cab. There is a booth in the corner for the "rat pack" who regularly visited here along with many other celebrities. There is also a back room where the mob would meet, complete with a back door for a hasty exit if necessary. According to the waitstaff, it is still a favorite among celebrities. Once inside, I understood why. The only drawback is that it is pricey. I would recommend that two people share the sides (which were very large and came in their own dishes) and concentrate on the main entrees and drinks. All in all, this was a great visit. It is a great taste of old Vegas.
