Fine Dining in Victoria?

Pablo's is very pricey, but is vitually unknown among locals, and appears to be a place designed to separate tourists from their $$$. I would second either Matisse (superb service) or Camilles. These would be very good places to dine at any city. At Matisse, you can have the four-course prix fixe dinner for $52. But forget the "fixe" part -- you can basically choose any two starters, any entree, and any dessert off the al a carte menu. However, for some items, there may be a modest supplemental charge added to the $52, such for the foie gras starter. They also have a decent wine list with 3oz and 5oz pours, in addition to full bottles. The service is both friendly and professional.

Recommendations Please


Thanks for they reply. What I was looking for was a brief list of reccomnedations from a local or someone who knows the city well. The question I have is what would be your top 3 choices in the area, given the criteria I have stated.

Recommendations Please

I will be visiting Las Vegas in August. I was hoping that I could get some dinner recommendations. The essential criteria I have are: (a) places with bar seating that a single person can walk up to without needing reservations, (b) places on the strip within walking distance of the Flamingo Road intersection, (c) places where I can get a decent 2-3 course meal (not including liquor) for about $100 or less; and (d) places where I don't require formal wear, though I certainly will have business-causal attire (e.g., a decent coat, collared shirt). The type of cuisine is unimportant.
