So, I went to Vegas to get married. And the entire experience was AWESOME, except for dinner on my wedding night. I chose to go to the Mix with the bridal party and well, it managed to be the most disappointing dining experience EVER.
It started with our party being seated underneath the stairwell. The "ceiling" was low and it was incredibly warm because it felt like spotlights were on you. My husband went to speak with the staff and manager and relayed to me that they were aloof and the manager LIED to him with respect to other seating options and availability. We were truly about to leave the restaurant not once, but twice. Furthermore, the waitstaff was less than impressive.
Truly, our money would have been better spent elsewhere. I highly recommend that you skip the desire to dine at this establishment. Yes, the view and ambience are spectacular. But that is about all this restaurant has going for it.
Dinner with the BEST VIEW IN VEGAS!! Plus direct access to a great lounge bar WITHOUT THE LINE HASSLE. A group of us now have a tradition when we go to Vegas and that is that Saturday night we have dinner at The Mix! Definetly the way to top the weekend in Vegas. We went back for the second time last week and we were seated at the same table as 5 months ago! But that was not just the same coincidence, the service was just as good, the food was just as tasty and the view is what we remembered. There is a limited menu but if you want selection stick to a buffet and do not come here! After dinner we step into the lounge right next door (make sure to go the bathroom, the best view ever and its there!!) The staff is very friendly and not uptight. They do not rush you out and the service is excellent. At the end of dinner if you do not order desert, its OK you will still get a treat with hazelnut chocolate!
We were disappointed. We were disappointed in the limited menu. The menu is very basic and does not have too much substance. I do not mind paying top $$$ for my meal but when you pay $125 per person for a drink, starter and entree, (we did not get any dessert) I think it is a rip-off. I would not recommend this restaurant in a city which has many other places you can try.
Great Food and Space but Questionable Service.
We own a resort in St.Lucia and as a result I visit travel and adventure trade shows all over the country and usually entertain some of our regular suppliers during such visits. I took a party of 10 to Mix last week.
What a great space. Definitely impressive, and amazingly good acoustics, given the disco drum in the bar not too far away from the restaurant. I thought that the menu was excellent and all at our table very much enjoyed the dining experience. Being the host of the table, my only beef would be with the service which left me totally unimpressed and even annoyed. Since we have our own restaurants I tend to look at service very analytically. Could there be a reason we would have been ignored for 10 minutes after being seated ? Were they extremely busy at that time ? No, they were not. When I finally attracted a server, he started out by saying that he was not our server but would assist. We placed our drinks order, which eventually arrived. After that time, we never saw that server again. At some point, another server arrived who neither introduced himself nor at any time tried to establish who was hosting the table. There was no maitre d' or anyone else taking any interest in us. The restaurant was not full that evening so I cannot concede that this happened because they were extremely busy. The check was placed in the middle of the table without anyone actually having asked for it and still at that time the server was clearly completely disinterested in establishing any rapport - and why would he as the service charge had been added already . I paid the bill, there were no thank you's and good bye's. Not from the server nor from the restaurant management nor receptionists. So perhaps this was a one off and clearly these things can happen. However, I entertained same size groups on three other evenings, and Mix was the only restaurant that did not provide the level of service I had anticipated given the ranking ( and prices !!) of these restaurants.
Perfection. I am a proud Owner/General manager of a restaurant is San Antonio,Texas. I would like to thank the entire staff to know how great of an expierence I had at MIX! I can not comment for other customers but I was more that impressed by the service and culinary greatness that I had the opportunity to enjoy! Being in the restaurant buisness I would positively consider myself a "foodie." I could spend hours talking about what I ate but all I say just go and try it for yourself!
Food not memorable. I would not recommend this for fine dining with all other choices in Las Vegas.. Food not memorable. I would not recommend this for fine dining with all other choices in Las Vegas.
Worst and most expensive meal ever!. I went to Mix two weeks ago, March 8, 2008 with three of my friends. Everyone's meal was terrible. The gnocci was tasteless. I got the snapper, which was bland. I could have made a better meal in my own kitchen. The total bill came to $110 per person. I felt like I was robbed. Please avoid this place at all costs. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there!
Despite Reviews...we went and LOVED IT!. Late dinner. 12/28, Arrived a bit early and were asked to wait in the bar, drinks are expensive, but so is everyplace by the casino's in Vegas. The only trouble we had is the hostess did not come get us, so I had to check back in, the front desk staff could use a lesson on service. After we came back we were asked if we would like to be seated on deck, we decided to try it regardless of the cold weather. Pleanty of heaters and were offered blankets, so no worries. Wonderful view of the strip. We were promptly greated by our waiter who was very well versed on the chef and the menu. Had the gnocchi app which was perfect! main course was the lamb which was the best I have had to date. My significant other had the tenderloin with fois gras, I must admint I am not a fan of fois gras but this combo was fantastic. Reccomend the side of Mac and Cheese done with ham and guyre. Finished with a wonderful chocolate dome with a mango sorbet. Now this was a quiet night so we had the waiters full attention, service was prompt not overbearing. Price was not bad for a Vegas higher end place. $225 plus tip. I would say try it for a nice night out....bon appetit!
Not a fan. Really cool atmosphere but, that's about it. Had a reservation for 10 people--even called to confirm--but when we got there the table was only set for 8 people. Took FOREVER to get our drink orders in and even longer to get our food orders in. Food was average but the prices were ridiculous for the service and portions that we received. Chef sent out a little dessert tasting which was nice but by no means made up for the slow service and high prices. Will not be going back.
Horrible service, don't waste your time or $!. The service was extremely slow, our waiter rarely came by our table because he was too busy ?trying? to be attentive to the table in front of ours. He must have thought that since that table was a larger group he would get a bigger tip but we overheard them griping about how horrible he was when they received the bill. Best of all, he had a snobbish attitude to go along with his slow service. I think he must have forgotten that he was a waiter and not a movie star. Sometimes you can ignore the service and still enjoy the food and atmosphere. In this case not so much. The food was mediocre in the presentation as well as the flavor. We read reviews about the food and that is why we chose to go but it?s just hype. There are tons of better restaurants in Las Vegas, don't waste your night out at this place?not to mention your money. I have not written a review yet but this place deserves the bad comment I am leaving!
