When you visit the Planet Hollywood Restaurant, inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, it is more than just dining. Their delicious food and great atmosphere combine to make this restaurant The Place to Go in Las Vegas.     

 

One of the reasons for the Planet Hollywood Restaurant's success is that their culinary creations are so tempting and so appealing, just taking a bite makes every dish an event. 

 

How do you want your Kobe beef let's count the ways.

 

They serve three huge three-ounce Kobe beef Sliders topped with cheddar cheese, Roma tomatoes, cucumber and caramelized onions on sweet buns. That could be a very tasty meal or snack depending on your hunger level.

 

Their Kobe Beef  is such a high quality, low fat beef, guests will be surprised to see Kobe Beef Chile on the menu! Usually the meat in Chile is good but if you want Chile and you want the best quality Chile, the Planet Hollywood Restaurant's Kobe Beef Chile is the one to choose! 

 

And there is also the incredible ten-ounce hand-formed Kobe Beef Burger to really be able to taste the Kobe flavor. You can also have Kobe Beef Chile on your Kobe Beef Burger or signature USDA choice Burger.     

 

Executive Chef Christin Butler explained, "This is a big menu and guests can order their food any way they prefer. I strive to make anything possible for our guests. Just let us know if you want your meal gluten-free, celiac-free, if you have a nut allergy, or anything else. I visit the tables to make sure everything is prepared the way the guests want it. Any guests who have special dietary restrictions will feel as comfortable as everyone else."  

 

There is an art to presenting food and they do it so well!

 

The Avocado stack looks great piled high with layers of avocado, sour cream, a splash of lime juice, and the special Pico de Gallo (Mexican Salsa) along with corn tortilla chips on the side.

 

The Calamari is dipped in their own home-made seasoned flour, then lightly fried and accompanied by the two tantalizing flavors of Remoulade and Marinara dipping sauces for a sweet and crunchy meal.

 

Or you can try the signature VIP platter with a sampling of their Chicken Crunch, Buffalo Wings, Texas Tostadas and Spinach Dip.

 

Just eating appetizers could become a fun meal if each person ordered something different to share. 

 

My salmon was perfectly prepared grilled or for a Japanese touch order Teriyaki-style.   

 

Just look at the photo of the Cool Planet Double Chocolate Brownie and try to resist ordering it! Imagine an enormous double chocolate brownie cut in half with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream and a cherry on the top.

 

When you walk up to the Planet Hollywood Restaurant, their sidewalk cafe's striking red motif immediately attracts your attention.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a great spot for people watching or you can try one of several rooms filled with displays of celebrity memorabilia.
