Vegas restaurant suggestions (MGM, Wynn, Palms)

Greetings all,

I've been a lurker on this board for quite some time and have gotten great insight into many restaurants!! However, I'm a little undecided on the restaurants to eat at during my upcoming trip to Vegas the first week of October. I'm going with the girlfriend for 3 nights (1st night at MGM Signature, the other 2 nights at Encore) and am planning on the following:

Day 1:
Lunch - Sushi Roku
Dinner - L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

Day 2:
Lunch - Country Club
Dinner - Alex (Taste of Wynn)

Day 3:
Brunch - Tableau
Dinner - Sinatra

Any suggestions/thoughts on these? I'm going back and forth on dinner the 1st and 3rd nights (100% sure I want to do the TOW at Alex). I REALLY want to try L'Atelier, but hear mixed reviews on service. Since I am with the girlfriend, and paying Michelin star prices, service is one thing I do not want to compromise on. In fact, this is one reason I chose not to eat at Daniel Boulud Brasserie, as I hear service there is lacking.

Do you think I would be better off going to Mix, Alize or Michael Mina (not French, I know) over L'Atelier? If I went to L'Atelier, I'd do the $75 tasting menu which seems to be a terrific value for that price point, and I'd be looking for the same in another restaurant.

Finally, would anyone here recommend Nove Italiano over Sinatra? There aren't a lot of posts on Nove, and I'm wondering if you're paying more simply for the view and the fact that you can go to Moon/Playboy right afterwards. It definitely appears to be more chic than Sinatra, which is a plus, but I don't want to sacrifice food quality and service.

ANY suggestions/comments are welcome! Many thanks in advance!!
