Back of the fine dining line. – I took my boyfriend here for his birthday last month, and was pretty let down. We were both excited to eat here, especially my boyfriend, who is an asst. executive chef for a major strip hotel.
The initial room you walk into, their 'lounge' reminded me of my veterinarians office. Slate floors, steel, and glass. Very cold and sterile.
We chose not to do a tasting menu of any sort, and we proceeded to order two courses of apps and two entrees with a bunch of side dishes.
We started with a watered down sake crab salad and smoked salmon that was decent. Then we proceeded to have dumpling soup that came out room temperature and a Lobster tart that had very little lobster, but decent flavor.
Our entrees were Big eye tuna over wilted greens (and they came out wilted, believe me) and the Rib Eye that the server raved about. The presentations were good, but that is about it.
The milk chocolate cheesecake was the best part of the meal by far.
The wine list was decent, but for a Trotter restaurant, pretty small. We paid $120 for a decent bottle of Pinot, but nothing special in that price range.
Service was good, but a little stiff and over-bearing.
The dining room was very boring, and the location of the restaurant is hideous. The furnishings are slightly uncomfortable as well.
We have eaten in almost every restaurant in Vegas, and this was a definite no-return for us. We could have gone to Alex or Guy Savoy for almost the same amount (we paid over $500 with tip), and those experiences were truly amazing. French laundry cost us under $700, and that is probably the best restaurant in the country!
Absolutely not value, slight level of innovation, and no atmosphere. you can do so much better now in Vegas.
$100.00 for a appitizer!!!! – Charlie Trotter has a huge name in the restaurant world and getting a chance to try his food in las vegas i was excited, but let me tell you the food was good but there is no value at this restaurant my friends ,i ordered the rackoflamb with braised lamb shoulder (sounds wonderful) what i got was two baby lollipop lamb chops and a teaspoon of braised shoulder meat!! this would have been a very small appitizer and this was $70.00 on the menue as a main course!!! i was eating at the bar and even the bartender said (is that going to be enough?) i said what do you think! so after my one drink and two lamb chops and $100.00 bill i left and got myself a burger at a fast food joint!! for my actual dinner!! do get fooled by the hype it would cost you $400.00 a person to get a meal that would actually be a full meal!!!
