Tired Food; Excellent Service. Wanted to try this place out, it looked pretty good. I was impressed with the soufle, but the french sauces on all our dishes was not up to snuff (think weak flavor and corn starch). I was very impressed with the service. The bill was on the high side because we ordered expensive wine. Overall, if you have lots of time in Vegas to kill, go here. If your short on time and cash, then pick a new up and coming spot like (as of 2012) "Sage". Avoid Yelp, allegedly they rig ratings (thru unexplained "filter" algorythms that favor advertisers).
The best jewel from the good old Vegas time Baby!. Very nice romantic atmosphere, The menu is a toast to fine French fare, exceptional service ,the food ummm so delicious, the perfect place to take your special one. A very original place.
Excellent French Food. Pamplemousse is tucked away in a fringe area of East Sahara near Paradise Road.The room is a flashback to 1950's Las Vegas. The fettucine a la Georges was a winner as were the duck breast and confit. Service is good but less formal than in many fine restaurants. Worth a visit
what in the world.... wow what a huge dissapointment at what could be a really great restaurant! my husband and i had 8:30 reservations and looking in a half full dining room they made us wait 20 min before we got seated!(i really hate this, all they were trying to do was push us on the bar and press us to buy over priced drinks!!, ) when we where finally seated we still had to wait a good 5 min before anybody even noticed we were there! the food was very good dont get me wrong and prepaired perfectly, but a 45 min wait between apps and dinner? nobody ever filled a water glasses? they even forgot one of our side dishes!! and i had to waive the waiter down to get it!! this was worse service then what you expect at a dennys!! and this is a fine dining $150-200 a head wolfgang puck restaurant!! like i said food was great, but everything else was awful
Terrible neighborhood. We were hassled IN THE PARKING LOT by a homeless man. After a really pushy conversation while my wife was standing right next to me, I was so agitated I had a hard time enjoying the food. Service was average, nothing exemplary. We mentioned to one of the waiters about the situation outside, and he said he would take care of it. After dinner was over, we came back out, and he was still there.
(Examples: Best pizza anywhere, Avoid on Friday nights, Great customer service).

Las Vegas? favorite French Restaurant ? Pamplemousse le restaurant - now open for lunch Mondays through Fridays
and dinner seven days a week
Founder George LaForge hand picked Jean-David Daudet and his wife Lee Ann to join him in the operation and ownership of the 85 seat restaurant. Daudet hails from the Burgundy region of France, where he owned and operated his own acclaimed restaurant, Le Trou Poinchy, for twelve years before moving to Las Vegas as the Executive Chef for Drai?s at the Barbary Coast.
?What Georges LaForge created in Pamplemousse is a very special place where friends gather and enjoy great food. My goal is to keep all that is wonderful about the restaurant ? the charming candlelit rooms, the waiters reciting the menu, the classic dishes like Duck, the Lamb, and the Veal, the crudite basket, olives and French bread that we deliver to each table.?
Daudet has added a few of his own specialties including a Chilean Sea Bass cooked with soy and ginger, Salmon with Spinach in a Puff Pastry, a Tomato and Goat Cheese Tarte and some new deserts including a Chocolate ?Volcano? Fondant and a Grand Marnier Souffle. ?We?re using a greater amount of organic ingredients, and have expanded the wine list ? particularly the wines from France and California.?
The restaurant is now open for lunch Monday through Friday with a special ?bistro? menu that includes classics like the Croque Monsieur, Moules Frites and Coq au Vin, as well as a variety of salads and soups.
The neighborhood is old being at the beginning of downtown,( buildings from the 60's)...so we were wondering at first but like the website said, what a charm once we entered ..
The waiters were wonderful, attentive without being intrusive, and everything was explained to us in great detail.
I enjoyed the Escargot for my first time and my husband who does not usually eat seafood, greatly enjoyed the combination appetizer of shrimp & scallops., The restaurant is lovely., cozy and intimate
The wines we had were very nice. All in all, it was a wonderful experience to celebrate the wedding of our friends.
Stuffy, crowded, rude.
No Menus - Me and my boyfriend don't speak french. We ordered with "uhm and ahh". We took suggestions from the waiter
Bad Parking - We parked parralel to Sahara. It was a very busy night. Not in the best part of Las Vegas
Stuffy Restaurant - Very small. Wasn't "romantic" like I had originally thought. Not enough room to do anything. Waiters constantly were leaning into our table to let others pass.
Waiters - Perhaps it was a long day for them. Very huffy and impatient. Felt a little ackward like we had done something wrong.
I would never reccomend someone to here.
Country French fare that remains a secret from night to night..
Pamplemousse has been serving French country fare in a rustic setting to Las Vegans, celebrities and tourists alike for almost 20 years. In true Vegas style, it's a favorite haunt with Strip performers. No printed menu ensures an extended colloquy between waiter and patron as your memory and patience is put to the test. A crudite platter is a mountain of fresh vegetables, pickles, eggs and dipping sauces. Duck, veal and seafood are the specialties.
