Food great, service needs work.. We had reservations, we were seated quickly at the V.I.P. table. We were taken care of by the server's assistants and everything was great. The Rabbit and the Quail were to die for. Dessert was so so. The fish was horrible, it was almost like a fish stick on the plate. The wine list was ok but over priced. We were happy about the food except the fish. Everything else with the food was great. Only one major problem that made the night bad...we had a table of three and as you can imagine at a place like that servers do NOT make mistakes like this; our server tried to charge our table for 4 people, which is a minor $200 more than than 3 people, we were very offended and did not tip the waiter due to his dishonest mistake, so be careful people check the numbers. I would recommend the food, maybe sit at the bar to avoid the servers.
Elegance and Ambience. The Las Vegas Chapter of the Commanderie de Bordeaux enjoyed a group dinner at Alex in December. What an amazing restaurant. They catered to our special group needs, served all courses at the proper temperature, on time, and with flair. The somm, and wait staff were perfect. Chef Alex created and prepared a special multicourse menu specifically to pair to our preferred wines, and each dish was an artistic and culinary triumph. We are coming back! Often! On a scale of 1 to 10, Alex is a 12
Unbelievable Service & Elegant Atmosphere; Food Could Use More Spice.
Alex was a truly unique dining experience. While I rate the food "just" 8.5, the overall experience was well worth the $600 price tag.
Service was impeccable; perhaps the best I've ever experienced. The servers were genuine and unobtrusive, catering to your every desire. Even the Maitre'D went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied.
The ambiance was very enjoyable, and some of the decor was so unique it actually became a topic of conversation for us.
Food was, as I previously mentioned, just "8.5". Don't get me wrong - the presentation was out of this world. I have never seen food prepared and served this way before. Unfortunately, I tend to prefer the bolder flavors of ethnic food and BBQ. Being a French restaurant, the focus was on butter and delicate ingredients. I believe if you enjoy this sort of traditional french fare you will likely think the food is closer to a 9.5 or even 10.
It's pricey, as there is no way to spend less than $150 per person for the smallest meal, bottled water, tax and tip. Adding in a few cocktails and wine will immediately double that price tag.
Overall: Try it; Alex is a once in a lifetime experience (unless you're the likes of Donald Trump, of course).
Really great experience.... A wonderful restaurant...Everything was outstanding. A great choice for an elegant evening in Vegas.
Once in a lifetime. Two things you should do at the Wynn: 1. Win money, and 2. spend it at Alex. That's what I did! and, What a memorable meal. Of course the food was fantastic, but so were all the things surrounding the meal, like the little purse stools, and the silverware and the plates. The service was top-notch too. What a shame a group of young people dressed in jeans came in to spoil the atmosphere. What happened to, "I'm sorry, we have a dress code"? Anyway, the wine pairings were perfection, and the dishes we enjoyed were out of this world. We will never forget our experience at Alex.
THE Best in Vegas' Fine Dining. "Steve Wynn built this Belle Époque dining room just for French-trained American chef Alessandro Stratta, and even equipped it with a replica of the staircase from the film Hello Dolly." Right when you walk in you're on top of this staircase that overlooks an opulent and warm restaurant with ornately draped curtains and Christiofle silver on the tables. Talk about making a grand entrance! It's all impeccably presented with beautiful dishware and glassware by a professional staff. It's all down to the details at Alex's. I would absolutely recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing. Stratta's cuisine is an amalgam of France, Italy, and the Mediterranean where scents and ingredients are perfectly balanced with the fine wines and worth every cent. Overall, it's a diamond among the fine dining experiences -- food, wine, ambience, service. It has it all.
Flawless!!!. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary 1/27 at Alex. The service was flawless, food was unforgettable, wine pairing with all six courses was second to none. The atmosphere was comfortable and elegant. Each course had an outstanding presentation, I could hardly wait to see what was next. This should be at the top of the list for anyone dining in Las Vegas.
FIVE STARS PLUS. Visited9/29. Unfortunated to be limited to a 5 star rating.Food excellent,presentations outstanding,service excellent,surroundings superb. Even though portions are small you will not leave hungry.The staff was most cordial and went out of there way to pronounce my name correctly.Notwithstanding the above if women can dress appropriately (quite fashionable for the most part)JACKETS FOR MEN SHOULD BE REQUIRED!!!!(AND KEPT ON!!!)
Chef Alessandro Stratta serves his luxurious prix-fixe French fare in an elegant and romantic room..
Make a grand entrance with your date as you descend the hourglass-shaped staircase and arrive in a sparkling, 162-seat dining room splashed in white with crystal chandeliers and mahogany wood accents. Stratta's four-course prix fixe menu ($120) and seasonal tasting option ($145) includes specialty dishes like the foie gras ravioli in truffle bouillon with duck confit salad and spring lamb with chopped parsley and garlic and boulangere potatoes.
A+ Alex. Alex at the Wynn is a beautiful restaurant. The 3-course menu is $110 per person. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. No attitude here. We had great conversations with our waiters and sommelier who were very warm and friendly. The Roasted Langoustines appetizer!! One issue, I tried to make a reservation a week before and was told they were fully committed. I tried again the day of and was able to get a 9:30, not the 10pm I had requested. Yet when we got there, there were plenty of tables. I hope that is fixed quickly because this fine restaurant should not be turning down reservation requests when there is room to accept. All in all, a fantastic dining experience complete with the little padded stool that is set beside the lady to rest her purse upon, much like Louis XV Restaurant at the Hotel De Paris, Monaco.
