Consolidated Caesars 7*/Diamond Celebration Dinner Discussion Thread

Pretty short question: Is it possible to redeem the celebration dinner at a property neither in LV nor in AC, like the Harrah's New Orleans or the Harrah's Philly?

Yes -- the TR website mentions Laughlin and Tahoe, and I'm nearly certain I remember using it in Baltimore and Council Bluffs.

At most of the Las Vegas properties, all you need to do is present your card and they will automatically take it out of your account (and you know it is in $100 increments). At other properties, you need to go to the Total Rewards desk and ask for vouchers to present to your server so they can deduct them from your bill.

My host at Harrah's Joliet said that I could use mine there.

Maybe it varies by property? I remember now also that I was going to use some of my 7* celebration dinner at Harrah's KC and went by the desk to get vouchers and this was when I discovered I had lost my ID (it was subsequently found again). But that was also a few years ago so maybe it's all "just give your card to the server" now (my recollection is of just handing my card to the server at the 360 steakhouse Council Bluffs)

Yes. I've redeemed at Jack Binion's Steakhouse at Horseshoe SHV as well as restaurants in Vegas.

Best "Celebration Dinner" Restaurant?

So, now that we're coming to the end of the year, and with Diamond Status likely expiring in January, I'm thinking about a quick jaunt to Vegas to take advantage of my "celebration dinner" before it expires. In early 2020, we at at the Bachhanal Buffet, but my wife does not want to go there again. Any other recommendations for the best restaurant to use it? I had looked at Bally's Sterling Buffet, but they don't accept it there. We're not particularly looking for a buffet. In fact, my guess is that wifey will probably reject most buffets. Just looking for ideas and recommendations. . .

Not sure if I've seen a recent DPs but FWIW you used to be able to go to the TR desk and have them exchange Celebration Dinner credits for an equivalent amount comp slip to use at some of the restaurants that did not directly participate.

[pause to Google]

The Caesars help page for the Celebration Dinners has a PDF link to the participating restaurants: https://caesarsrewards.custhelp.com/...ation%20dinner

although that brings up a PDF with a QR code to scan for the list of restaurants (C'mon, Caesars, you couldn't just link it directly?)

The QR code link is: https://qrco.de/bbpKvq

which has a list of restaurants, a small handful of which are highlighted in yellow with a footnote that says "*Please speak to your Casino Host or visit Caesars Rewards Center for 3rd party voucher redemption." so it sounds like they are still doing the conversion I mentioned above.

My LV play/stay is heavily skewed towards mLife these days, so it's been a while, but from past experiences Mon Ami Gabi, Eiffel Tower, Strip House would all be solid choices.

Most popular are probably Hells Kitchen, GR Steak, Giada, Nobu, and Old Homestead. If you're into fine dining then Guy Savoy works too but the $100 won't help much there. If you just want cocktails then Vanderpumps is popular too.

I missed earlier that OP said Diamond, not 7*. There is a different link/QR code for Diamond, that does not have the "contact your host/TR desk to exchange" language so maybe they'll only do that for 7*?

Here's the Diamond link: https://qrco.de/bbpILf

those are all good choices too (I haven't managed to make it to HK yet but have been to the others)

Also Martorano's, or if you want Asian, Beijing Noodle is good, and I haven't been but have heard good things about Mr. Chow. Sadly Rao's is closing.

Sadly, Martorano's at Paris closed a few months ago. Rao's I think is closing next Sunday. Haven't been to Mr. Chow but Beijing Noodle is just "fine" imo. I also like Oyster Bar at Harrahs but the quality went down since COVID.

Thanks all. I had looked at the participating restaurants that were linked with the QR code, but I had not dined at most of them before. I was just looking for opinions on which you thought were the best. Thank you for your responses. I remember that Mon Ami Gabi had a decent Sunday Brunch.

I used my $100 at Nobu last week. It's ok for the price. Not amazing. Guy Savoy was my first choice but couldn't get a spot. Reserve well in advance and enjoy.

To add a couple more data points: I've heard very mixed things about Mr. Chow. Loved Rao's, but as noted they're closing for good this week. One perhaps overlooked option is Voodoo Steakhouse at Rio. I haven't been in several years but the couple times I went the food was decent to good but the strip views from the restaurant and lounge are great. The down side is you have to go to Rio. Not sure if the new owners are improving things, but last time I was there the place was getting really run down, and it's not very convenient to get to being off-strip.

I don't think you can use the $100 dinner at Mon Ami Gabi.
