The Eiffel Tower Restaurant, located at Paris, Las Vegas is one of those places that is truly one of a kind. Not only does it offer a wonderful view of the Bellagio fountains and of the strip, but it is also one of those restaurants that is a true experience from beginning to end.
Starting with a ride up the restaurant’s exclusive elevator, the doors open up to reveal the open kitchen. I may have gasped! Such a wonderful surprise!
Having an open kitchen like this, merely a few feet away has to be one of my top foodie experiences. I had to take some photos to share with all of you. Just look at these strawberries!
My party and I were seated at the bar, and soon after, we had the pleasure of meeting Lyle Tolhurst, who really makes sure that this restaurant runs as smoothly as it does. I must thank Lyle for having us as guests and making sure we had a wonderful experience. While we waited, he let us browse through the Eiffel Tower Restaurant Cookbook.
The photographs within the cookbook were great and we were amused to see that we were seated in the exact spot featured on these pages! Right away, the bartender came over and took our drink order. You may recall from my Drago Centro post, that I don’t drink, so I am always weary of sitting at bars, thinking I will be delegated to drink water or soda. Well, I am pleased to say that the Eiffel Tower Restaurant bar really came through for us tonight! As soon as we told the bartender we wanted something non alcoholic he didn’t even bat an eyelash and came back with not 1, but 3 different non alcoholic drinks.
The drinks were fantastic. Fruity, yet each had a distinct taste. Very refreshing.
We were here to try the souffles and as we waited we could not stop admiring the view. It really does not matter where you sit because every table offers a different view. While we were there we were able to see the Bellagio Fountains from a totally new perspective. Everyone was in awe.
While we were there, we were witness to a wedding proposal! Honestly? This place is perfect for a proposal! So romantic and with a full view of the city. According to Lyle, he has seen up to 5-6 wedding proposals in a single night! Guys! Take note!
We ended up trying three different souffles including pistacho and Grand Marnier. They had a special pumpkin souffle on the menu because of the Thanksgiving holiday, and we were able to try it as well.
The souffles each had their own fantastic flavor and were perfect. So fluffy! I was able to eat from all three and although they were all great, the pistachio had to be my favorite.
After finishing the souffles and our drinks we said our goodbyes to Lyle and made our way over to the elevator. I could not resist taking just one more photo of the open kitchen.
As we made our way to the casino floor, I remembered how often we used to stay at Paris, Las Vegas. Before the Wynn came around, this was my favorite hotel to stay at and we used to stay here every Christmas before we started going to Canada instead.
So, to conclude this post, I would like to once again thank Lyle for treating us to such a great experience at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. From the drinks, to the service, and the desserts (and the view of course) this was great from start to finish. If you are looking for a true experience that you can only have in Las Vegas, definitely consider the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.
