Great Birthday Restaurant for Mom in Vegas

Flatowleach | Nov 13, 2011 06:29 PM

I am taking my mother out to dinner for her birthday in December while we are in Vegas. I want to take her to a good restaurant that has great food.

Would like:

-- Good ambiance/ nice view would be great

-- Food that is not tiny and expensive (expensive is fine, I just hate restaurants that serve expensive and small portions and when you leave you are still hungry)

--Business casual preferred, don't want to go in jeans, but also don't want to have to dress to the nines either.

-- Food that is worth the price. I am good with expensive, but I don't want to eat some place where the restaurant has a famous name/chef but the food is just "ok" and overpriced.

-- Types of food she likes: Seafood, Italian, Spanish, Mexican and Sushi/Japanese

-- Alcoholic drinks that go beyond wine and beer.

Things not to worry about/don't want:

-- my mom does not drink, so having a great wine list does not matter.

-- French food is not her favorite. Unfortunately when I look online many of the top restaurants are French.

-- She is not elderly by any means, but I don't want to take her to a place that is pretentious and/or mainly serving the need to be seen 20 something crowd and is overly modern/sterile. But on that same note, I don’t want to feel like everyone is so old we should be eating at 5pm. I would like a place that is nice and for “adults” but not the elderly.

I know I am probably making this difficult, I am sorry, I just want to take her some place nice she will enjoy and leave feeling like she had a good meal and a great time.

Thanks!
