Mavens Overview: Top of World
The Top of the World restaurant at the Stratosphere is known for its dramatic views of Las Vegas. The restaurant is located near the top of the Stratosphere Tower, 844 feet above ground level. The restaurant rotates 360 degrees every 75 minutes.
Most of the Internet Buzz is devoted to the spectacular views of Las Vegas from the restaurant, the food seems secondary. The food gets decent, but not rave, reviews. The service is attentive.
Internet Buzz: Top of World
- Amazing view.... and the food was decent.
- The view is spectacular. And the floor revolves. You don't feel it, but if you look closely enough, you can see it. Nothing like the "mood" lighting and the white tablecloth on the table. It was well-worth it.
- The kobe beef carpaccio was excellent. The truffle oil and capers were perfect with the thinly sliced meat. I had the New York Strip, which was perfectly cooked to medium-rare and extremely tasty. The Cabernet that I had with my steak was definitely too expensive and very average. All in all, ToW is slightly overpriced but definitely a spot to hit up for the experience alone.
- While living in Vegas for 6 years, I always recommend this place to visitors. Yes-it's not at the best hotel (the hole in the wall Stratosphere) and furthest away from the strip (North end), but for the price and atmosphere, it's great for any occasion or celebration.
- Try the Top of the World Martini. For $100, Hennessy, Paradis, Grand Mariner, and Ultima CV Vodka.
- The food was okay, a little over priced but the view made it worth it. The lobster mashed potatoes were delish!
- Vegans, save your money and just go have a drink in the lounge. There is really nothing vegan on the menu here, except for a (no butter, no toppings) baked potato and salad (oil and vinegar)...but the wine was great and the view is of course spectacular!! The service was very good as well.
- We started with the lobster bisque, which was okay. The presentation was nice. It was a bit spicy for lobster bisque and not at all sweet, like lobster bisque should be. It was good, but not classic bisque.
- The only real detractor in the evening was a manifestation of the "compelled photography" experience that is becoming increasingly prevalent in Vegas. Any time you do something even remotely touristy in Vegas, they want to force you to stand or sit somewhere and get your picture taken, so that later on someone in your group will see the picture up on a screen, have a very emotional reaction to it and insist that you buy it, usually for no less than 15 dollars. Well, this has found its way unfortunately even into this restaurant.
- Having been to the Space Needle in Seattle and having dinner, and the CN tower in Toronto and having dinner, my next natural stop while in Vegas was the Stratosphere for dinner. Dinner atop a tower is not a thing for those with vertigo or motion sickness. Yes this restaurant REVOLVES so you get a full view of Vegas. I love this but it may not be good for others.
- My husband the not so interested in food guy really wanted to come here. I figured ok it will be cheesy and expensive but he wants to go so ... I was so pleasantly surprised! I could almost pass on gambling in Vegas to just go to restaurants so you could understand how this wasn't at the top[ excuse the pun} of my list. The view was amazing, the food was perfectly cooked and really good and the service was excellent!
- At first I was a bit skeptical since the Northern end of the strip is outdated compared to the rest, but I was surprised when I saw the restaurant on the top of the stratosphere. I'm from San Francisco, so I loved the idea of the rotating dining area, the one at the SF Hyatt closed down a couple years back, so I was nostalgic. :) The view was amazing, the food was great,
- the lobster bisque. IT WAS TO DIE FOR! They give you a beautiful large bowl with pieces of lobster and butter in the middle, they then serve you the bisque separately. I really enjoyed this
