Background:

I recently just got back from Las Vegas, and was able to use my Caesars Diamond Celebration Dinner Credit, at Nobu Caesars Palace. Both my dad and I have Caesars Diamond, and were able to use the credits to cover about 2/3rds of our meal. Last year, my dad and I used our credits at Hell’s Kitchen and Mr. Chow.

I obtained Caesars Diamond when I linked my Wyndham Diamond to Caesars over two years ago. This year, Caesars clawed back status for those who matched from Wyndham, but then reinstated status for this year and stated the new terms and conditions won’t apply until the next program year which starts February 1st, 2023. So, this may very well be my last Diamond Celebration Dinner! You can check here for the current lists of which restaurants are eligible for the celebration dinner.

Nobu Caesars Palace Las Vegas:

I’ve walked passed the Nobu Caesars Palace a lot during my past visits to Caesars Palace. It’s located in the middle of the casino, next to the Nobu Hotel entrance and across from the Old Homestead Steakhouse.

Upon walking to the table, I noticed that the decor was just average to me. I didn’t feel it quite exuded luxury.

My mom started with a Lychee and Elderflower Martini, and my dad got a Lychee Passion Fruit Mocktail. Both were quite good.

The shishito peppers were average, as well as the miso soup.

The rolls were pretty good. I have no complaints here, but I did prefer the Spicy Tuna Roll from Zuma in Boston.

For hot plates, we got the Black Cod Miso, Beef Tobanyaki and Tempura. They were all pretty good, but nothing unique.

And for dessert, we got the Bento Box (Chocolate Flourless Cake + a Scoop of Matcha (Green Tea) Ice Cream), a Green Tea Lime Cheesecake and one extra scoop of Matcha Ice Cream. It was interesting they put it all on one plate. I guess it looked nice though all on one plate! The cake and cheesecake were okay, but we did enjoy how rich the Matcha Ice Cream was.

Service was fine, but not as polished as I expected for a restaurant of this caliber. My meal at Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas the night after had a much better ambiance and service.

The food overall was quite good, I just don’t know if it was amazing enough to justify the rave reviews it gets, or the price tag. I tried a Zuma in Boston, and felt that experience was more memorable.

The Verdict:

Overall, I found the Nobu Caesars Palace to be a bit under expectations. Perhaps I expected more since the Nobu name is so well regarded. I’ll have to try a different location one day and see how it compares. That being said, I love the Caesars Celebration Dinner that comes with Caesars Diamond as it allows me to try famous restaurants at a discount.
