Blown Away – If you enjoy French Food, you can not pass on DB. The food was to die for, the dining room is gorgeous but not stuffy. The bar is a different feel, more relaxed and warm and comfortable. We've eaten there twice - once on the patio and once inside and both have different feels. During one of our dining experiences, the Chef came to the table and chatted us up and explained his food techniques when we asked him - a great guy. You don't find great touches like this anymore. The wine list is out of this world... you could go to DB for the wine list alone. I'll be bringing all my out of town guests to DB!
Delicious, friendly, beautiful – I thought the $32 burger was just a gimmick, but I walked away feeling like I had gotten a bargain. It was more delicious than I could have imagined. The charcuterie plate had some of the best quality meat, and the cheese plate had delicious cheeses (although not as many as you may find elsewhere). But after being blown away by the burger, we ordered several amazing desserts. I've never had anything like the tropical fruit pudding and the profiteroles were heavenly. The pastry chefs are genuises. In addition, the hostesses and staff were more than friendly, even down to the guy cleaning the bathroom. The Wynn and the restaurant and beautiful; pay attention to the remarkable decor in the restaurant before you get distracted by the watershow in the lagoon outside. I found this restaurant experience better than Nobu and Mix.
Completely Disappointing – We have eaten in some of the world's best restaurants and were hopeful that the reviews here weren't accurate. We can only confirm that this restaurant is highly, highly overrated. A restaurant of this caliber should have flawless service and food that exceeds expectations. Instead, we were seated 20 minutes after our actual reservation, which had been made one month previously, and only after I complained. No adequate apologies were made. Our meals were served while we were still eating our appetizers and my husband wasn't even seated at the table! We had to send his food back....with another server because we couldn't find our server. Again, no adequate apologies, no complimentary dessert to offset our obvious frustration, nothing. Food was okay, but not worth the $$$. Overall, a disappointing experience.
The greatest burger in the world – The Original DB Burger was absolutely amazing. Worth every penny. The service was excellent. I don't have one single complaint about this restuarant.
the best braised short ribs ever! – I had braised short ribs everywhere and i make my own as well. This place can make mean braised short ribs like no one's business. Halibut was excellent and fresh. Service was great. I and my boyfriend had a great evening.
I expected much more – The thing that drew me was the extensive foi gras items. I ordered seared foi gras appetizer that was decent. Slightly underflavored and overcooked. Then I ordered the DB burger (sirloin stuffed with foi gras and truffles. The foi gras and truffle were simply lost and the burger was cold. The service was average for most but well below average for a restaurant of this caliber. We had to flag down staff for water refills and the check. We were never offered another bottle of wine so we didn't bother getting one. And this was late in the evening when there were hardly any tables to wait on! A good lunch place at best- though I hear they're closed for lunch now because business was slow.
Very disappointing experience – Trying out Daniel Boulud Brasserie combined with a LaReve show package sounded like a great deal for just an extra $150 for two three-course-dinners. They explained they used special menus designed to get through the meal quickly and to the show on time. However, these "special menus" turned out to be a cover phrase for the least expensive items on their regular menu such as spring greens, onion soup or beet salad. The soup was overly salty and way too hot (even after cooling down for 15 minutes). For desert I asked them to leave out the part that I am allergic to but the kitchen refused because we were ordering off the "special menu". Service was slow and innatentive, our wait staff was off in the corners chatting most of the time, water glasses were hardly ever refilled, and it took over 20 minutes to get the check.
An offal experience – Entering the Brasserie I was pleasantly surprised to find our reservation request for an outdoor table honored without the often awkward LV expectation of a greased palm, although I did the right thing when presented our table . Our server was gracious and made us feel more than welcome and comfortable. The wine steward was very helpful in recommending an excellent selection, with a sense of humor and ease. We ordered bottled water as well but it was placed in an ice bucket away from our table making its service difficult for the server assistant. Our meal was wonderful, the veal cheeks and sweetbread schnitzel was cooked and sauced to perfection. The desserts were a perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience.
Daniel Boulud-Could be better – We had a good experience at Daniel Boulud but not great. We started with mussels which were tasty but we've had better. The broth was flavorful but not extraordinary. The bread served was great but I wish it was warm. We ordered 2 recommended entrees from the slow cooked section of the menu. The braised short ribs were good but slightly salty. The slow cooked duck with crispy skin was again tasty but very salty. The mashed potatoes and mushrooms were pretty good but the salt really overwhelmed the dish. For dessert we got the raspberry tart for two which was the best part of the meal. The raspberries were on top of a pistachio cream and crust and served with whipped cream. While it was a good dining experience I'm not sure we would go back or recommend it to out of towners. It was just slightly underwhelming.
