Mediterranean-inspired dishes are prepared with jet-fresh seafood and expert simplicity at this elegant MGM Grand restaurant..
Past a cylindrical 1,600-gallon fish tank, painted underwater scenes accent one of the two dining rooms. In the adjacent high-ceilinged area, purple light glows from behind glass wall panels, streaked with streaming water. Chef Michael Mina's menu includes raw yellowtail in a bright orange-and-carrot lime juice, and pillowy, fried lobster corndogs. High-end takes on American desserts include a scrumptious, warm pineapple upside-down cake
Very Good. I went there with 13 other guys for a bachelor party dinner after not being able to get a table at Craftsteak. Aside from the bread taking forever to get to the table, the food and service were pretty much perfect. I had oysters, a raw tuna appetizer, and a 14oz. bone-in New York steak. After a day of drinking by the pool, a piece of fish wasn't going to cut it. The tuna was superb. The oyster was fresh and delicious and the steak was cooked perfectly and had great beef flavour. It was equal or better than I've had at some L.A. steakhouses. For a couple drinks, food and tip, the bill came to about $100/person, which is cheaper than sitting at a blackjack table for 15 minutes.
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!!. This was a "must do" for our visit by a "Food TV chef personality". Boy, were they off the mark! Visual ambiance of the restaurant was kool, the music was too loud and the droning beat drove me crazy by entree time. The waite staff was professional/properly attentive. The biggest disappointment was the food. The raw clams smelled fishy and were tough, additionally they were overpriced. "Create your own salad" was fun, but at $14/pp, overpriced. Our lobster entree smelled fishy, was both overcooked/rubbery and undercooked. Asparagus was not the young/tender vegetable, but an overgrown/ stringy disappointment. Being from the food industry we would have had to offer some discounts or something to hope to get return business. It's like they know their serving tourists and don't care if they get bad reviews. For our $200+ dollars we'll stick with our superb Dallas restaurants.
Wow was that pricey. Ok, I don't like seafood that much as it is but if you go anywhere, I guess Seablue was a good choice for the variety. Appetizers were WONDERFUL. You can do a small "tasting" menu of the cold and hot appetizers. I chose the soup trio and also the fried appetizer plate- Yummmy. And the oysters were also good but very very pricey. My main entree, some fish poached in a broth with foi gras, was NOT very good. The combination definitely did not mix for me. My dinner companions liked their entrees but I don't think they were overwhelmed by it. Dessert was decent but nothing outstanding. Wine selection was good though overpriced.
Expensive disappointment. Seablue fell below our expectations. The staff was wonderful, and some of the dishes were excellent (appetizers, especially the lobster corndogs were a delight.) However, the ambiance and main dishes disappointed. Both our fish entrees, while good but not great, were noticeably undercooked. There's an odd ambiance with design elements that, nice individually, didn't seem to work together. The table for two was tiny and cramped. They cheerfully moved us to a comfortable large booth. for the price, I expected more than paper placemats! However, it was the background music that really ruined our experience. It was too loud, with a driving beat that never changed. The songs changed, but the beat never did, and after an hour, we were anxious to leave to get away from the music. In the end, neither the food nor the ambiance created a relaxing, enjoyable experience.
BEAUTIFUL. ONCE AGAIN THE MGM AND MICHAEL MINA DO IT AGAIN. THE WONDERFUL FRESH INGREDIENTS WITH A FRIENDLY KNOWLEDGABLE WAIT STAFF MAKE THIS THE PLACE TO DINE. THE DECOR IS UNIQUE WITH A FISH TANK AT THE DOOR. AN OPEN KITCHEN GIVES OFF THE AROMAS THAT MAKE YOUR MOUTH WATER. DINE HERE FOR AN INTIMATE DINNER OR WITH A GROUP. YOUR ODERS WILL BE DELIEVED PRMPTLY AND PROFESSIONALY
A fantastic birthday meal!.
My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday and had one of the best meals of our lives. The fish was amazing...fresh, so beautifully prepared, and absolutely delicious. Our dessert (a chocolate bombe) was a superb finish. Even their drinks were top notch (I had a dirty martini to DIE for!)
This was the best meal of our trip, hands down. I'd go back to Vegas just for this restaurant!
