After a two-year absence, Smith & Wollensky returns to the Las Vegas Strip with a new two-story location inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. The restaurant features a tavern-like lounge on the promenade level, an upper-level wine wall, and a view into the butcher room. Diners can head to the Art Deco-inspired bar or request the all glass private room that overlooks the bar and promenade.
USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, shellfish towers, twin stuffed lobster tails, a coffee and cocoa rubbed filet, châteaubriand for two, and a roster of sides such as creamed spinach, buttermilk onion rings, and cremini mushrooms make the menu.
The chain steakhouse takes over the former Zeffirino Ristorante space at the mall after closing in May 2017. The 14,000-square-foot restaurant seats nearly 400 people.
