The dress code is casual elegant. While jackets and ties are not required, the hotel suggests casual evening attire. T-shirts, tank tops, shorts and athletic shoes are not appropriate.
Complimentary valet parking is available at the hotel, as are multiple cabs. However, if you're ending your meal at the same time as one of the shows that's playing at the Wynn, such as Le Reve or Spamalot, you might want to allow extra time to get your car or a taxi.
