    So I'll being staying at CP in April, any good recommendations on restaurants there? Things to do, or check out there? It's my first time staying there and I keep hearing good/bad things about CP. Some say it's ceilings are too low and it gets pretty smoky in the gaming area, and others just love the place.

    I really like Joe's Stone Crabs ... just a fun, excellent venue. Also had a great meal at Guy Savoy. Have had a very good happy hour at Gordon Ramsay Pub, too.

    I'm not a big Caesar's guy, so this is fairly limited experience. But those are ones I like!

    Welcome Jaydog! Yes I am an unabashed fan of Caesars. Although not the newest and fanciest of properties, i think it has a wide range suited for just about every level of traveler.

    They current house the hottest nightclub, Omnia, if you are into the that scene. The Pussycat party pit resides right in front of the entrance of the club. The pools are quite nice if you are NOT into the day club scene. The Qua spa is also one of the top spas on the Strip.

    As for rooms, you have a wide range ranging from the basic room in the older towers to 9,000 sq ft villas going for $40,000 per night.

    Caesars also has the highest table limits for those who look for higher level gaming. As I am not a slot player, I have absolutely no idea about the slot situation.

    For restaurants, in my opinion, the top buffet in Vegas, the Baccanal buffet is there. The pricey Nobu restaurant is good but wouldn't want to paying out of pocket for that meal. Old Homestead is decent. I think better than STK for food quality. Obviously the ambiance is not quite as nice as many of the other steakhouses. However, you do also have access to the many restaurants located in the Forum shops attached to Caesars. Few of the restaurants there allow bill backs to your room. Joes Seafood and Steak is one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas.

    Biggest drawback, I think is the sprawling footprint of the property. Everywhere will be a hike. Although I cheat and visit and stay at other properties, I always end back at Caesars, also referred to as Geezers by many others here and there. BTW, I'm in my thirties and like it there....

    Mesa Grill. When they opened way back when we had our doubts, but they figured it out. Then again, it's not exactly complex. Hell, Spago. So many folks snivel about Puck but Bev Hills or Forum Shops, I love Spago. And, indeed, if you're not from Miami, Joe's.

    You know what I miss at Caesars? Empress Court. And 8-0-8.

    I used to be one of the folks who was negative towards Mr. Puck. I've eaten in his restaurants 3-4 times now and never had a bad meal.

    For Caesar's I also like cocktails on the "deck" at Trevi and, for Italian, Carmines. The wife and I had an anniversary dinner there a couple of years back mainly because they had a gluten free pasta option for her, but their regular pasta was pretty damn good.

    As ken said, Mesa is churning out pretty solid food now, and I liked GR Pub a lot. I thought the service at GR Pub was better than the fairly mediocre service I got at GR Steak.

    I like Border Grill in the Forum Shops for brunch on the weekends.
    Inside of Caesars, I'm a fan of Nobu. It can be pricey. They always have a ton of specials that are not on the menu. The bill is always a surprise as we tend not to ask the price of the specials being offered. We've been surprised both ways...sometimes it's been higher than we thought, but also pleasantly surprised the other way. I like Old Homestead for bone on filet too.

    Just commented on Caesar's on another post. SPAGO for sure. Go there every year. Apart from the wait (under reservations), I've never had a bad experience on the food. You just have to go to Absinthe...worth it. Just make sure you can take a ribbing if your'e near the front stage area - it's very British kind of humour. Totally dry and absolutely cutting !! Caesar's still cuts it in my book. A real icon for Vegas. Always will be, Love it or Hate it.

    I agree with glen on the quality of their high limit area. It is a staple of most of my visits. They can handle everything good or bad and there are never surprises. One thing I love about their high limit is there is baccarat action always. Go anytime any day and you won't be their only player. Dealers are great too.
