Las Vegas is the land of blockbuster French cuisine. The four top restaurants in the Michelin Guide are all French, with Sin City’s only three-star restaurant and all three two-star restaurants falling in the category. With Bastille Day on July 14, it’s worth a minute to check out some of the best French restaurants in Las Vegas.

1 Restaurant Guy Savoy

The only place in the United States to find Guy Savoy’s French cuisine sits in the Augustus Tower of Caesars Palace. Bon Appetit named it one of the country's hottest restaurants and Newsweek deemed it the best restaurant in Las Vegas and one of the finest anywhere.

2 Picasso

Dine in the presence of Picasso paintings and ceramic pieces and the French cuisine of Julian Serrano at Picasso at the Bellagio. Serrano, Spanish by birth but with an affinity for French cusine, has received two James Beard Foundation Awards for Best Chef Southwest and Best Chef California, a AAA Five Diamond Award six years in a row and two Michelin Stars.

3 Bouchon

Chef Thomas Keller at Bouchon in the Venetian serves up his French with a traditional brasserie flair. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall looks out on the Venetian's pools.

4 Joël Robuchon

You didn’t think we were going to leave Las Vegas’ only three-star restaurant in the Michelin Guide off the menu? This year, the best French restaurant in Las Vegas added another feather to its flashy cap when Chef Claude Le Tohic won Best Chef Southwest from the James Beard Foundation. Joël Robuchon was named France’s Chef of the Century by the esteemed Gault Millau restaurant guide. He came out of retirement to open his first restaurant in the United States at the MGM Grand.

5 L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

Watch the artistry of executive chef Steve Benjamin and his team when you pull up a seat at the bar overlooking the kitchen of the Joël Robuchon’s more casual approach to dining that is still through the stratosphere. While the food may not ding your credit card as much as the Mansion next door, you’ll still spend a pretty penny dining here.
