Going to Hell's Kitchen has always been on my bucket list. I am obsessed with the TV show and love Gordon Ramsay, so when I knew I was going to Vegas, ticking off Hell's Kitchen was going to happen one way or another.
The restaurant is just outside of Caesar's Palace, right on the strip. We decided to go for lunch rather than dinner because of the decision to try and keep our costs down a little bit as Vegas was the middle stop on our big trip.
The outside has the unmistakable "HK" with the fork. I believe at night there is fire involved with the sign, but during the day there obviously isn't.
The inside is pretty awesome. There's a wall with the iconic photos of all the winners from the show on. I took great pleasure in pointing out my favourite winner, Michelle. We checked in with the desk and waited only a few minutes before our table was called and we were led through to the main dining room.
The restaurant itself was packed, which didn't surprise me in the slightest. I love the decor and especially like the lights which have the fork additions to them.
The most iconic of everything is the open red and blue kitchen. This is not the kitchen or restaurant used in the show, but is modelled from the same setup. It was pretty impressive to see, and I do love an open kitchen.
We were seated towards the back of the restaurant which had views towards Caesar's Palace. It was a bit less of the hustle and bustle from the main dining room, but still had a really great atmosphere.
Again, the decor was themed to Hell's Kitchen and had the fork accents throughout everything.
I wasn't going to go to Hell's Kitchen and not have a cocktail. Their cocktail menu was quite good for a restaurant, but I already knew which one I was going to go for having already looked at the menu before I got there!
I went for the notes from Gordon, mostly because it had gin in and came with a funny quote from Gordon. Mine had something funny about a grandma and gave me a good chuckle!
I was not going to go to Hell's Kitchen and not have a steak! I had made my mind up a long time ago that I was going to spend the $49 for a steak, and the additional $12 for the fries. I am most likely never going to go back there, or if I do I will just spend the money again, so I had to do it! I have my steak cooked medium rare and it was cooked to perfection! It was beautifully pink inside and melted in the mouth. It was 100% worth the price tag, I couldn't find a single fault.
The server then came and asked if we wanted dessert. We were all so full and said that we didn't. After a while, he came back and laid forks on the table. We were all a little confused, but said nothing. He then bought out a very large sticky toffee pudding! I had previously put a note on the booking that it was my parents anniversary and the server had picked up on this. He told us the dessert was on Gordon and wished my parents happy anniversary. I was dead chuffed! It was such a small gesture, but was so lovely. It even had a candle in! The dessert was gorgeous. I don't like toffee or caramel, but I actually really enjoyed the dessert. The photo also doesn't do it justice, it was about the size of my hand and very easily fed the four of us!
My meal on its own came to around $100. I have no regrets whatsoever! I was so happy to tick off a bucket list item in Las Vegas. The restaurant was awesome and the food hit every note. I will definitely be trying to get back here in the future. It is worth the long flight!
