10 Best Las Vegas Restaurants for Fabulous French Food: Bon Appétit!

Many of Las Vegas’ finest restaurants are French, although Francophiles will find plenty of casual eateries as well. From the acclaimed Joël Robuchon, which offers guests a fine dining experience unlike any other, to the hearty bistro food at Mon Ami Gabi, these restaurants serve some of the best food in town.

Las Vegas’ French restaurants often offer dining experiences that provide a feast for all of the senses, including the eyes. Artfully designed interiors, birds-eye views and fine artwork decorate the dining areas, giving an appropriately beautiful background to accompany the award-winning food. At the more casual bistro-style restaurants, you might get a seat on the patio with great views of passersby, or major Strip attractions, like the Fountains of Bellagio.

Although the Strip is home to many French restaurants, Las Vegas’ neighborhoods also have well-known and popular eateries. Prices are usually slightly lower away from the Strip, and the overall atmosphere is quieter. The food and wine at these restaurants is just as good as anything found down on the Strip.

If you’re looking for unique French food in Las Vegas, you won’t have to look far. The number and variety of restaurants guarantees the availability of innovative and new styles of cooking. Traditional French fare is well represented, but variations on the classics can present some interestingly delicious dishes.

Whether you're hungry for classic French bistro food or a lavish 16-course tasting menu, here's a look at 10 of Las Vegas’ best French restaurants. Bon appétit!

Mon Ami Gabi 
While the people-watching at Mon Ami Gabi is unparalleled (there's nothing like a street-side view of the Strip), the food is also worth noting. There is always something new to try on the classic French bistro's ever-evolving menu. Traditional menu favorites include the Onion Soup au Gratin with bubbling baked Gruyere and the trademark Steak Frites. For those looking to indulge in a unique dish, the Wild Escargots de Bourgogne with garlic-herb butter is definitely recommended. To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of more than 80 boutique French wine varietals--handpicked by Gabino Sotelino himself--are served by the glass or bottle from the restaurant's rolling wine cart.
