Food Court Fiasco.
If you feel the need to spend a bundle of cash on bland Chef Boyardee in the middle of a loud mall food court... then this is your place. I'm not saying this because I'm cheap. I'm saying it because I hate paying a fortune for food that has the consistency and flavor of elementary school paste.
Touted as a place to people-watch or catch glimpses of celebrities... it's packed with pretty much only tourists attempting to do just that. If you're lucky, perhaps a C list celeb like Tito Jackson will walk by. Also, if you are stuck near the rail in the "outdoor" patio, it is you who will be watched by every person in the passing throng as they stare at your food. If you enjoy hundreds of people stare at you while you eat... then this will be a plus.
Oh, and if you feel the need to be talked down to by some untalented hostess/waitress at the pinnacle of their deadend career, this is heaven. This staff is better than you... period... and if you don't believe me, just ask them. Enjoy the Guidos in bad suits that put new butcher paper down on the tables as if they're preparing for Tony Saprano to hack-up a body.
My entire table was insulted that Spago didn't pay us to eat there. And to the person who dragged us there under the false promise of something good... I still don't forgive you.
disappointing. Went to Spago's for special occassion. Service was marginal. System designed for productivity, not customer service. Long wait for dinners. Lamb meal came out cold. Second try lamb was overcooked. Second dinner became cold while waiting. We paid our bill left and ate elsewhere. Overpriced, overrated. Would not recommend
Worst Food in Vegas!. Worst food experience of my life. I got sick for three days after. Wolfgang Puck is over rated. Do not waste your money or time. Wolfgang used to be a good name , but he was over expanded. He is the Applebees of Celebrity Chefs
great food and superb service. my boyfriend and I started off with crab cakes which were tasty but a bit salty. I had the Seafood Paella with super tender shellfish while my boyfriend really loved his Kobe beef which was quite generously proportioned. The wine that our server reccommended (and unfortunately, have since forgotten) went with our meal very nicely. For dessert, I went with my default of cream brulee. It was very yummy but I wouold have preferred it without the pastry crust on the bottom. My bf had the peaches and cream with an almond nougat and he said it was very good. We finished off our meal with some white peach tea (moi) and chocolate monkey tea (bf). Though we tried eachother's tea, we both agreed our own was the best flavor. Though the food was quite good overall, the 5 stars truly is to achknowledge the outstanding and attentitive service from the managers to the hostess to the server to the bussers. My boyfriend and I would return just to receive more of that TLC from the service team.
Great on every aspects, but needs a bit a tweaking.
Well, after watching Cirque du Soleil's Mystere (that show was awesome!!!), my family and I decided to find something good to eat. Well my parents decided to eat at Spago. My parents have been to the Spago at Beverly Hills, so I decided to trust them. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great (we didn't go to the cafe because it was too crowded and we want to be secluded). The waiters were especially nice, although they felt like robots, one thing that I hate, waiters that act like robots and with no expression whatsoever. I forgot what my family chose, but I decided to go with their Crabcakes as an appetizer, and the Seafood Paella as the main course,
When the Crabcakes came out, the plating of the dish was very elegant. The crabcakes were of good proportions and the size was small enough to give me a start. I like my crabcakes with a crisp, but these crabcakes felt breaded, although I do not remember exactly what the covering was made of. However, to comtemplate for the non-crispness, the crabcakes were especially rich with flavor. It wasn't too rich so that I wouldn't be able to taste my main course, that I like.
However, when the Seafood Paella came out, I was very much disappointed. The taste of the paella was great, once again rich and juicy. There was seafood in the paella, but the paella came with a huge chunk of chicken. There was actually more chicken than seafood in the Seafood Paella. Now, if a Seafood Paella has more chicken than seafood that doesn't really seem good to eat. Why they just call the Seafood Paella the Chicken Paella. Nevertheless, the taste was exceptional.
Finally, my parents, having been to the Beverly Hills Spago, wanted a melted cheese dish that was Beverly Hills exclusive. What was impressive was the the head chef gladly decided to make this dish, even though did not have the right cheese to make the dish. The dish was stringy and and went well with the flatbread. At the end, I had some tea. I would come back here again.
Away from the crowds, masterpiece of flavours in superb food, staff were top notch.
If I had to think of heaven, Spago's would be it.
This is food to be experienced with your eyes closed, to enjoy the symphony of tastes.
The staff appear when needed and are so discreet as well.
For a quiet environment , eat at the inside area and treat yourselves to a taste sensation.
Best Food, Great Service. My boyfriend and I went to Spago on our recent vacation, and it was amazing. The food was exquisite! And our waitress was the best! We were in Vegas for a week and ate at amazing restaurants every night, but this one was the best by far! The tuna tartare was the best we've ever had! And the unexpected combinations of foods and sauces are amazing! At the end of our meal the head chef came out and asked us how everything was, something we always appreciate! I definitely recommend Spago!
Exquisite dining and service. My husband and I dined here before going to see Celine Dion in concert Thursday night. It was the perfect opening to an amazing night at Caesar's Palace. Our dinner at Spago's was perfection from beginning to end. To start our waiter was very friendly and quite knowledgeable. He was able to answer all of our questions about each dish and was able to recommend a wine for our dinner choices. My husband started with a personal pizza with fig. Amazing! I had the heirloom tomato salad. Absolutely mouth watering. We each chose to have the kobe dish which was cooked to perfection. For dessert I had the creme brulee and he had a raspberry and creme dish...each was made to order and a wonderful experience. The chef greeted us as he did many other guest. But his warm manner made the experience that much more meaningful. The decor is elegant and makes for a very romantic experience. Be it a large group or dinner for two you will not be disappointed. Spago's is now my new favorite place to dine in Vegas. I can't wait to go back.
Overpriced medicore fare.
We had the misfortune of eating here recently. It has really slipped in quality over time, but that tends to happen when a chef begins the chain/franchise business and only cares about self-promotion rather than quality. I would not call the sausage pizza and pasta bolognese we had "gourment." They were incredibly bland and unseasoned- moreover, the sausage pizza had a bizaree aftertaste and the crust was undercooked. The server was nice, but it's not worth going to a place for service that should be friendly at a minimum.
They contacted me after I complained, which is a sign of decent management. But I didn't want a refund. I wanted them to know that their standards are declining. Z
I?d rather lose my money on the slots than spend it again at Spago..
I was so surprised to read the positive reviews for Spago on here. I went here last Saturday while in Vegas for my Mom?s birthday. She had been to the cafe for lunch a few years ago and loved it, so she wanted to try it again for her birthday dinner. We made the mistake by not realizing there were two different menus?one for the cafe and another for the attached restaurant (there is no wall dividing them so it?s a very easy misconception). By the time we sat down and looked at the menu (we couldn?t order from the cafe menu) it was too late to get up and leave without being rude so we decided to stick it out. I?m from New York City and I have no problems paying for a good meal, but this was ridiculous. The menu was very faux gourmet. I had the tuna and it was so bland. My sister said it best when she described her food as very ?lean cuisine?. The wine list is ridiculously overpriced?at least $20 more per bottle for the same wine you?d see in another restaurant. There were only a couple bottles under $50 and they would have been about $7.99 at the wine mart.
I read a press release today from a Spago PR rep boasting that Britney Spears dined here with her new boy toy on Monday. Sure hope they enjoyed their pathetic meal they could have gotten in the frozen food section at their local grocery store! Hey, I guess I?d eat anywhere for free, too.
However, we made up for our disappointing meal the next night by going to CraftSteak at MGM and had the prix fixe Kobe steak dinner. It was probably twice the price, but worth every penny.
