From the folks who brought you the Cheesecake Factory, this café offers lots of food, moderate prices, and a lively setting making it a solid alternative - especially for 24 hour diners and cheesecake lovers.
Very extensive from Breakfast (omelettes, waffles, cereals), lunch & dinner appetizers (potstickers, calamari, crabcakes), salads, flat-bread pizzas, burgers and sandwiches (pot roast, pork tenderloin, grilled chicken), pastas, oven and broiler specialties (Yankee pot roast, Mongolian steak fajitas, grilled pork chops), steaks and seafood, a full bar and wine list, and of course CHEESECAKE! - from Oreo to Banana Crème to (my favorite) white chocolate raspberry... and beyond. Everything was very good and the portions were huge. Get a room with a mini-fridge for leftovers.
The Venetian's Italian theme continues here with elaborate murals, bas-relief sculptures and molding, and marble table tops at the soft-leather booths. It is lively - meaning kind of loud - so intimate conversations are probably not an option. An open "café" fronts the casino and the foot traffic by this part is legion.
Very friendly but a bit on the slow side. Our server had too many large tables to deal with. Casual observations of other areas lead me to believe this might have been an aberration.
It isn't cheap - prices range from around $15 all the way up to the $30's but the majority of the food is in the $15-$25 range. Considering the size of the portions, that isn't too bad.
Did I mention the cheesecake?
I don't usually recommend chain restaurants but if you need something "safe" and known, this is one of your better bets in Vegas.
