We normally share places to dine outside in Las Vegas during the spring and summer. However, this isn’t a normal year. With coronavirus spiking around the country there are plenty of people who would rather eat al fresco even as we head into the winter. There are plenty of places to eat outside in Las Vegas. However, few of those restaurants are fine dining experiences.
A slice of pizza or a sandwich outdoors is fine for the daytime. That’s not quite the experience everyone wants when visiting Las Vegas after the sun goes down. The good news is that even paired back casinos still offer some of the best restaurants in the world. These great dining experiences are one of the many reasons people visit Las Vegas.
Wynn Las Vegas has some of the best fine dining restaurants in town. Many of those fine dining restaurants offer outdoor seating. Since this is Las Vegas, you’ll find plenty of heat lamps to keep you toasty while you eat. Some people can ditch the coats while others might still prefer having a sweater handy.
These are all fine dining restaurants that recommend dressing for the occasion. Business casual attire is required at all of these restaurants. For men, this means wear pants and collared shirts or polos. Wynn says “the attire is dressy and elegant” for women. Sorry folks, no shorts or t-shirts at these restaurants.
Fine Dining Outside At Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn Las Vegas has outdoor fine dining options for just about every cuisine you might be in the mood for. La Cave, which is great, isn’t fine dining has outdoor seating available. Tableau has a fantastic breakfast with outdoor seating as well.
Both are fine options but we’re focused on fine dining today. Here’s a rundown of the options available. (Note, check hours before making reservations. Restaurant hours fluctuate by day.)
Costa Di Mare: Italian coastal cuisine that focuses on seasonal seafood flown in daily from Italy. This is more of a Mediterranean restaurant than a pasta restaurant. There’s a different option at Wynn if you prefer the latter.
Lakeside: Another restaurant that features fresh fish. Lakeside serves Hawaiian seafood, line-caught by family fishermen in Hana, and flown to Wynn Las Vegas.
Mizumi: This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award-winning restaurant looks out over private Japanese gardens surrounding a koi pond with a 90-foot waterfall. Mizumi features ocean-fresh sushi, sashimi, and modern Japanese specialties.
Sinatra: This restaurant pays tribute to Frank (Sinatra) with sophisticated takes on classic Italian cooking. The pasta is good but the Osso Bucco is fantastic!
SW Steakhouse: One of the best steakhouses on the Vegas Strip. Make sure to try the bread (seriously). The steaks are always perfectly prepared as requested. This restaurant has a perfect view of the new nightly shows on the Lake of Dreams.
