I ate at the Flame Steakhouse on September 11, 2013. I did not have a reservation, and I was dressed in golf shorts, a clean t-shirt, and black sandals. I was worried that I was under-dressed, but they seated me immediately. I had a coupon for half-off my meal, so I was excited. I eat at the Flame Steakhouse every time I am in Las Vegas and this visit did not disappoint.
First of all, the Flame Steakhouse is VERY dark. If you have any problems with your vision, I recommend asking for an extra candle on your table. There was piano music playing, but not too loud to intrude or interfere with dinner conversation. It is in all-respects an old-Las Vegas-style steakhouse. They are a dying breed as the Strip hotels turn over their restaurants every few years with each culinary trend.
I had the shrimp cocktail (5 large prawns served on lettuce and ice with lemon wedges and homemade cocktail sauce). It was excellent, although the sauce needed more horseradish sauce so it does not taste so "ketchup-like." The shrimps were firm and delicious.
My entree was the NY Strip Steak, cooked medium. It was perfectly grilled and delicious. Honestly, it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. My side dish was the grilled asparagus -- also delicious. I passed on the Hollandaise sauce that normally is served with the asparagus.
Finally, I had the NY-style cheesecake which knocked my socks off. It was so dense, so perfect. I was so full and happy that I actually walked past the blackjack tables to sleep in my room -- a very high compliment. It was really a perfect meal.
Any review would be incomplete without a nod to the restaurant staff, from the hostess to the chef, wait-staff and the buss-woman. They were all friendly, efficient, and professional. In fact, when I was seated, the waitress asked if I was a guest. When I replied "yes," she told me to go to my room and get the coupon book I received upon check-in as it had a coupon for a free bottle of wine with two dinner entrees. When I returned with the coupon, my shrimp cocktail was served and I received half a bottle of cabernet since I dined alone. The half bottle was very generous and was closer to 75% of a bottle.
When the bill came, the wine was not on it. The rest of the bill was cut in half by the second coupon and my entire bill was about $21. If you visit Las Vegas, do yourself a favor and eat in the Flame Steakhouse. You will not be disappointed. It is well worth the price and you will not get a better dinner in Las Vegas. With a coupon, it is a steal!
