I'll second R2R's recommendation. He's the one that recommended it to me and I went back in Decemeber for a couple of pints and an appetizer. I only had the poutine fries and they were damn good. The braised oxtail is what did for me.
I'm not super familiar with that end of the strip. I tend to concentrate on the south strip like around City Center. That being said, Todd English P.U.B. at Aria is good as well with a solid beer selection. Though Public House has a more upscale vibe to me. And don't confuse it with the Public House that's in Luxor, NOT THE SAME THING!
Also, I've been wanting to check out The Henry which is at the Cosmopolitan. It's not exactly fine dining but honestly anything at the Cosmopolitan is nicer than most. If you end up at Cosmopolitan, do yourself a favor and go to the Vesper Bar near the lobby. Some of the best made cocktails I've ever had.
