Las Vegas has some of the best culinary options globally, but we all know that fine dining definitely comes with a heavier price tag. Luckily, many fantastic restaurants in Las Vegas have set menus that allow diners a chance to sample their best dishes at a lower price point—perfect for getting a taste of your dream meal and also an excellent option for date nights. We’ve rounded up some of the best set menus in Las Vegas for every budget!
The Best Set Menus in Las Vegas
If you’re a Las Vegas local and looking to check out one of the best spots at Resorts World Las Vegas, you’re in luck. FUHU has a unique set menu exclusively for locals. We tried out the menu at a hosted media preview. For $65, locals can enjoy a “Singapore Spritz” cocktail with their choice between one of five appetizers (we tried the salmon sashimi and the crispy tuna), one of five main courses (we especially enjoyed the “FUHU Aromatic Crispy Duck”) and a dessert. It’s a perfect way to taste some of the best menu items at FUHU (and decide what you want to eat next time).
One favorite that's had plenty of locals talking for years is the lunch special at Estiatorio Milos located inside Restaurant Row between the Venetian and Palazzo Towers of The Venetian. We visited recently for a hosted media tasting to see what has fans raving and found the lunch menu to be well-rounded, extraordinarily fresh and delicious.
For $38, diners can enjoy a three-course meal that includes some of the Estiatorio Milos classics like the tomato salad (made with tomatoes that are brought in from a farm that grows them just for Estiatorio Milos restaurants), Faroe Islands wild salmon and the Greek yogurt (made in-house). Upgrades are available for the starters and main courses for a fee like the octopus (some of the best we've ever had) and the "Astako Makaronada" (a rich and creamy lobster pasta that's served completely shelled).
If you're in the mood to add to your culinary experience, there's also a wine pairing upgrade for $19 that gives diners a taste of two Greek wines that complement the meal.
Located inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, China Poblano serves up a rich fusion cuisine that blends the best of Latin and Chinese dishes. We visited for a hosted media dinner and found the menu to be quite extensive (we actually found too many things we wanted to order).
Luckily, there's a tasting menu that provides a taste of numerous stand-out menu options from multiple categories. Diners can enjoy the Siu Mai, carnitas tacos and several other items in a perfectly curated tasting. There's also some great news for our vegetarian friends—the tasting menu has a fully plant-based version.

Enjoy upscale Italian cuisine by Celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis at Giada inside The Cromwell.
