It seems par for the course that a restaurant atop the tallest building west of the Mississippi would offer fabulous views. But Top of the World at the Stratosphere hotel goes over the top, rotating 360 degrees throughout your meal to offer sprawling views of the entire Las Vegas valley.The meal begins with an elevator ride more than 800 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. From there, guests are led to an elegant dining room with angled floor-to-ceiling windows.As you sit at your table enjoying first-class service and delicious lunch or dinner dishes from Executive Chef Rick Giffen and Chef Claude Gaty, the restaurant rotates at a relaxing and rhythmic pace. The 80-minute rotation is quick enough for you to take in the entire Strip, downtown and beyond (as well as the Top of the World kitchen) during the course of your meal, but slow enough so you can savor every moment.Lunchtime offers a quaint atmosphere for business meetings, conventions and family reunions while dinner transforms the dining room into one of the city's most romantic getaways. Many of the marriage capital of the world's proposals happen right here.For a real treat, reserve your spot for just before sunset to enjoy the gorgeous splash of color across the mountains and sky as the world famous Las Vegas Strip becomes fully illuminated. Top of the World's menu is also impressive with a variety of gourmet steak, meat, fowl and seafood dishes as well as vegan and gluten-free selections, like grilled vegetable Napoleon & portobello with a quinoa tabbouleh drizzled in a balsamic essence. Just about any meal on the menu can easily be made gluten-free with a simple tweak from the chef.To enhance your overall experience, try the four-course tasting menu with suggested wine pairings. Each dish is masterfully served in just the right amount of time leaving you feeling satisfied but not overstuffed. Your meal begins with choice of soup or fresh Caesar salad, accompanied by a Pinot Gris. As a seafood lover, you will enjoy every bite of the silky and creamy lobster bisque.For your second course you'll choose from a jumbo lump crab cake with green papaya kimchi or seared branzino. Topped with citrus brown butter emulsion and a single asparagus spear, the branzino's natural flavor is enhanced by an earthy mushroom fricassee with huitlacoche and corn. Either selection pairs perfectly with a slightly sweet and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.Third course is a grilled center cut filet with red wine sauce and royal trumpet. This scrumptious filet is cooked to perfection and served with a North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon.For the final course, a mini dessert duo and fruity red port satisfies even the sweetest tooth. Top of the World isn't just a restaurant. It's a fine dining experience -- one you won't soon forget. Your server will arrive at just the right moment to snap your photo and capture a lasting memory with the Strip as the backdrop. Professional photography is also available for an added cost.

I have to admit when our cab was pulling up to the stratosphere i was a little concerned. We were driving by boarded up apartments and what looked like not such a nice area but once we got to the restaurant it was breathtaking. We went at night and it was such an amazing view of the entire city. We had the smores tart for dessert and it was delicious! Would most definitely go back!

We usually take a cab from the airport but decided on a limo this time. Best decision ever! The limo driver was waiting for us at the baggage carousel with a sign with our name on it when we arrived. He was dressed to the nines and immediately introduced himself. He was extremely friendly and personable! He got all our bags. Once we were in the limo he opened a bottle of champagne for us and asked us what kind of music we liked and if the air temperature was ok. We will never go back to using cabs again!!

When Carrot Top comes out on stage there's no telling what crazy contraption he's going to pull out next, but classifying him as just a prop comic is an understatement. His wacky inventions are merely an extension of his outrageous and hilariously funny personality. While some jokes are based on items that he pulls from his prop trunks, others rely on his talent as a stand-up comedian and comical commentary on everything from tourists to NASCAR, celebrities and current events.He begins with talking about how when people come to Vegas they suddenly have urge to gamble on everything in sight."One time I lost $20 on a Coke machine," jokes Carrot Top.Then he introduces a few of his "inventions." "Here's an Amish hair dryer," says Carrot Top as he pulls out a long bendable tube that he has to blow out of and aim at his hair. Next he demonstrates a redneck baby carrier, which is actually a box of beer that has holes cut out of it to fit a baby's head and limbs.The red-haired comedian barely stops to take a breath as he transitions between frantically searching for a new prop and telling jokes. Before you know it the topic has changed from walking to the Excalibur to his last visit to the porn convention in Las Vegas."It takes an extra hour to walk around because your feet get stuck to the floor," jokes Carrot Top while people in the audience can't help but keel over laughing.Next he transitions to talking about athletes and pulls out a football helmet with a phallic attachment to demonstrate what one of his least favorite players should wear.His show is just as wild and crazy as his big hair and brightly colored tie-dyed T-shirt that he wears during his performance. What seems like a loud fashion statement for most people is mild in comparison to the comedian's uninhibited personality.Mid-way through the show, a bucket is lowered from the ceiling with what the comedian claims to be his "medicine." He pulls it out and reveals that his medicine is actually Crown Royal. Carrot Top pours a shot for himself and then a few more that he hands to people in the front rows while AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" plays in the background.You just never know what this crazy comedian is going to say or do next. At times it looks like not even he knows what's going to come out of his mouth, but he admits later on in the show that "A lot of this isn't for you. I'm just entertaining myself."However, the continuing laughter and buzz from audience members as they exit the theater and re-tell some of his jokes proves that he is doing much more than just that.-- By Caroline Fontein

It’s David freakin’ Copperfield. Need we say more? We really don’t but since we love talking about this world-famous magician who just so happens to be our neighbor, we’ll go on and brag about him and his show anyway. The perfect combo of nostalgia, magic and showmanship, master illusionist David Copperfield continues to wow us time and again. Trust us, we’ve been about 17 times and still can’t figure out how he teleports. Seriously, how does he do that?!Anyway, moving on. This show is just mystifying enough to make you believe in the supernatural, while also making you feel like a crazy person for considering whether or not someone could actually separate their torso from their legs and live to tell the tale. We just aren’t sure how he pulls off his magic but we are more than O.K. with it.In fact, we hope the mystery continues to endure the test of time so that we can keep attending the show and increasing our chances of being picked for the audience participation. Let’s be real here. We are talking about the man who made Statue of Liberty disappear and who walked through the Great Wall of China. Clearly, anything is possible. Don’t believe us? See Copperfield perform for yourself and let us know just how many of his illusions and tricks you manage to figure out. And if you get pulled onstage, we’ll be insanely jealous.

Not only did I love the show itself but I never knew David Copperfield was so funny! I also loved the personal touch he added by speaking of his childhood. Highly recommend!
