Although L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon isn’t a huge restaurant — there are five tables that seat up to 23 and 33 seats at the counter — groups can still dine at this Las Vegas hot spot with a reservation made in advance.
Larger groups will be more comfortable sitting at the restaurant’s tables than the counter seats, but at both you’ll have a great view of the chefs in the kitchen preparing your meal and plating your courses. Groups of six or more should call MGM Grand Hotel & Casino’s group dining reservations line. Parties of eight or more are required to put down a $500 deposit that can be applied toward the meal and a non-refundable large party fee (it starts at $125 for eight people). Be sure to give more than two-weeks notice if you need to cancel a large group reservation at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, or you’ll have to pay a portion of the dining costs — and at $155 a head, that can be a pretty penny. If you cancel with less than a week’s notice, you’ll get saddled with the full bill, so be sure to call well in advance if your group can’t make it.
