somewhat off topic. Taxis vs Monorail?

We decided to rent a car. Problem solved. Thank you everyone that replied.

Cabanas at Bartolotta, too cold in Nov?

And the Verdict is....
I called to ask if it's possible to guarantee a Cabana for a Tuesday night wedding dinner for 5 people. The polite lady informed me that it was at the "discretion" of the Maitre'd as to which parties were seated at the Cabanas, and all she could do is write down our request. She also said that the weather would be a factor. So it is a roll of the dice, as to whether the Maitre'd thinks your party is worthy of a Cabana.

What is the best way to get to all these amazing restaurants on the strip? I have looked at the Monorail system, it seems efficient, however, you do have to walk to the nearest station, and as any lady would agree, even a small amount of walking dressed up in high heels is not fun, are the taxis much more expensive than the monorail?

Well it might be worth a try. I will let everyone know what the outcome is. Thank you Scott for the suggestion.

I have narrowed down my wedding night to be held either at Sage or Alize at the Palms. I know there is a huge fan base for Sage, however, I was also hoping for the wow view of the strip, which Alize would have. If we choose Sage, the tasting menu looks great. I have not been able to find much on food quality for Alize. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thank you for the heads up. Since this will be our wedding night dinner, I want it to be special in every way. If they cannot or will not guarantee a cabana, it just might take them out of the running for that night anyways. Maybe another night, because the food does sound amazing. :)

Anyone recently dined at Alize or Top of the World?

Thank you for your thoughts on Top of the World, I think you are right, take in the view while enjoying a cocktail. I am still hoping for a review on Alize at the Palms, again the view looks amazing, however, I do not think any of us would want to drop $200 pp for just "ok" food regardless of the view.

thank you for the reply, I am from FL, so needless to say my blood has thinned a bit. I think if dressed the right way, the cabana would be very nice.

Would it be too cold to dine in one of the Cabanas at Bartolotta in November?

Getting married in Vegas in November. Starting to put together the list of restaurants to dine at. There are a ton of reviews for the more popular places, however, I have not seen much on Alize at the Palms or Top of the World in the Stratosphere. We have already decided on Bouchon for breakfast & dinner, Bradley Ogden & Border Grill for lunch and the buffet at the Wynn. Need one more really good dinner for a Tuesday night. Robuchon is not in our budget since we are picking up the tab for 4 people. Thank you in advance for your reviews.

Amazing Dinner to celebrate getting married

Thank you for the replies. Bartolotta looks like a good choice. Still would like to know if anyone has dined at Alize or Top of the World recently. The other days we are planning on dinner and breakfast at Bouchon, lunch at Border Grill and Bradley Ogden. And since it's Vegas, we have to do go to at least one really good buffet.

Robuchon would indeed be amazing, however, we are picking up the tab for 4 people, so unless we hit the big one Monday night in the casino, pretty much not an option.

Amazing Dinner to celebrate getting married

We are flying in on Nov 22nd, staying 4 nights at the MGM. I am trying to narrow down where to have our wedding night dinner on Nov 23rd. Sadly, my two top choices, Picasso and Alex are both closed on Tuesdays. I thought maybe we would go "old school" and dine at Top of the World, I have not seem many reviews recently about the food, obviously, the view is spectacular. I am also considering Alize at the Palms or Aureole at Mandalay Bay. I would appreciate any thoughts/opinions/reviews. There are so many choices it has become overwhelming trying to choose.
