You'll Dream About the Lobster P-t Pie!.
During a previous visit to Las Vegas, I'd gone by Michael Mina at the Bellagio and noticed the lobster p-t pie on the menu. (For some reason, Citysearch, doesn't allow the middle word of the dish.) I'd noticed it on the Nobhill menu as well, which was preferable, as the Nobhill menu overall was a bit more to my liking and price range.
We were provided an amuse bouche of cucumber gelee with dungenous crab that was refreshing. I started with the trio of soups -- the tomato soup with crab grilled cheese sandwich was to die for! Then I had the lobster p-t pie that I'd been yearning to try. It was well worth the wait and the price (MP on the menu, $95 that night)!!! It is a whole production, as they wheel a cart to the table with a p-t on it, covered with the crust. They remove the crust and take out the lobster and vegetables to place beautifully on the crust. They use a whole lobster -- which was sweet and meaty. It was truly the best dish I've had in my life! I was stuffed beyond belief, but I made myself eat the whole thing because it was sooo delicious!
The people beside us wanted to get the lobster p-t pie, but opted not to when they found out the price. I have to say that it is absolutely worth the price -- don't let it deter you.
We were too stuffed for dessert, and were given an espresso s'more taster. Not that it mattered after the lobster p-t pie! (As an aside, the short ribs were also good.) Give it a try!
Tasting Menu. I chose to write this review as we have been home for 2 weeks and am craving their Lobster PotPie. If there was a way to live out a Visa commercial, hop on a plane and head for dinner tonight- I would! We could not decide between the wonderful options on their menu so we chose to go for the 'tastings' menu and was so glad we did. It is a bit expensive at $125 per person (and all at the table have to order it) however compared to many other tasting menus- it's a great deal--- epecially considering one of the courses was a Kobe beef and Foie Gras which was avail on their menu for $35 and ounce. The Lobster PotPie was superb! We also loved the chicken dish which was perfectly cooked and served with a delicious truffle mac and cheese! The sample menu provided generous portions and they were even willing to make a substitution. The service was wonderul -start to finish. The chef even sent out a cup of a special hot chocolate at the end of out menu which was wonderful- although we were stuffed! The worst part was that the bread they sent out was wonderful but we couldn't fill up before the other courses arrived. Truely a special place, wonderful food and the best service (from all staff) we had our whole trip.
Beautiful evening. We went here to celebrate our anniversary last month. All I can say is bravo! From the wine selection to the dessert offerings it was just an incredible experience. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. We will return!
Sick to my stomach!. Do not go to Nob Hill if you now what is good for you. I had their "signature" dish the lobster pie, and I was up all night in the bathroom vo miting, as well as severe diahrrea for the next 2 days. For a whole day I was in bed, because I was dizzy, could not move, and sick to my stomach. I missed out on a whole day in Las Vegas because of their disgusting food. When I called the manager, he did not help at all and kept denying the fact that it was his dish that caused me to be sick. If you want to waste 2 days in bed in Las Vegas than go to this restaurant, if you are sensible at all stay clear.
Class redefined. Not recommended for kids. Just say Lobster Pie over and over again - this was glorious. The homemade bread, kept warm on the table with the beautiful selection of homemade butters. Extremely passionate staff regarding wines and the compilation of all the foods. The bar staff on arrival can make cocktails you haven't dreamt of and what tastes. Would suggest the quiet, curtained off side booths, your own heaven of glorious tastes and sublime wines to match.. You cannot help but enjoy...enjoy...enjoy
Chef Michael Mina's upscale take on American cuisine in a tavern-type setting..
Despite a new name and menu, Nobhill Tavern remains a contemporary, upscale restaurant. The "tavern" in the name only reflects the laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant. The menu is four-star quality and Chef Michael Mina incorporates fun items such as whole fried chicken chicken for two with truffle mac & cheese and onion jus among dishes that include lobster Carpaccio, quail ravioli, foie gras, Kobe beef and caviar.
