No, you’re not experiencing déjà vu—the reason the service staff at Old Homestead looks familiar is because they’ve likely served you before, just in other upscale restaurants in Caesars Palace, such as Nero’s (the classic steak house that occupied the space before Old Homestead) and the recently shuttered Bradley Ogden. It was a shrewd decision by owners Greg and Marc Sherry to cherry-pick the brightest servers from those establishments when it came time to staff the Vegas outpost of their New York institution. Not only are these veterans attentive and friendly, but they understand how to read a table and pace appropriately (two underrated components of the fine-dining experience). You may come to Old Homestead for the food, but you’ll come back for the service.
