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.
-- 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.
