A word from Aureole - Las Vegas
Although it's the largest city founded in the 20th Century, Las Vegas retains the energy of a frontier town where the unexpected is still a daily occurrence. The dining scene is equally as adventurous and Charlie Palmer is one of its trail blazers. Sensing that Vegas was about to undergo a renaissance, Palmer made an early investment, opening Aureole in the Mandalay Bay Resort in 1999.

The show stopping menu under the direction of Executive Chef Vincent Pouessel combines the classic cuisine of Aureole with the theatricality of Las Vegas in dishes like Olive Oil Poached Oregon Petrale Sole with Truffled Brussels Sprouts and Ahi Tuna and Veal Shank "surf and turf", while a four-story, temperature controlled glass and steel wine tower—the largest in the world—houses 10,000 of Palmer's award-winning 50,000 bottle list, made accessible by an elaborate pulley system presided over by "flying wine angels" clad in black spandex Calvin Klein. After all, this is Vegas.

    First visit to this place and took the parallel tasting menu. It was stunning. Cannot find fault with anything and now added to our list of favourite restaurants in Vegas. I would definitely recommend this place though make sure you book as it looked busy when we went though this never affected the service which was exemplary. We will definitely be back.

    A friend and I chose Aureole for at wasting menu experience during our girls' weekend in Las Vegas. We both enjoyed the Parallel Tasting Menu, which highlighted a different theme, prepared two ways at each of four courses. The presentation was beautiful, and flavors were excellent. For what we received, I actually thought the tasting menu presented a good value. Would definitely recommend!

    From the moment our party entered and walked the bridge to see the wine angel in the air we knew this was a special place. Eric was our server and his knowledge and professionalism made our experience memorable. The food choices were incredible from foie gras to pork to salmon to wagyu beef. The wine pairings were phenomenal and personalized assistance from staff was exceptional. The chocolate desserts were beyond outstanding and the birthday surprise with handwritten chocolate script wishing Kim Happy Birthday with candle and cupcake was sincerely special!!Also, the white swans in the waterfall outside are real!

    I and my large party (10 people) felt like we stepped back in time with the overall service, presentation, and food... The gimmick of the young women negotiating a beautiful glass wine "cellar" on ropes and harness is cool but the rest of the place doesn't meet the standard (and definitely not the price tag). Several of us had a basic romaine lettuce salad that had absolutely no taste. Main courses ranged from OK to overcooked depending on who in my party was asked. Server was a bit snotty, making several off-hand comments about some mixed-up plates that were certainly not appreciated. Would definitely NOT repeat.

    We thought this place would be great for dinner and that it would be fun to see the wine angels "gracefully ascend" the 4 story wine tower while dining. First of all, the wine angel only went up to retrieve a bottle of wine once while we were dining, and it was anything but graceful. All six of agreed it looked like she was lethargically hoisted up to grab a bottle and came right back down. It truly was nothing special to see. The food was ok. The service was ok and the bottle of wine we ordered was nothing special. Overall, I we would not go back to Aureole. In our opinion, it wasn't worth the price an there are too many other amazing restaurants in Las Vegas.

    The wine cellar is huge in a transparent tower, with a "wine angel" climbing to take your bottle. This is spectacular. The food is really amazing, perfectly cooked and portioned. For sure this one is a must go in Las Vegas. I look forward to come back again.

    We did the chef's tasting with wine pairings and were rewarded with an eclectic and totally pleasing food experience. The service was top notch as we were made to feel like we were dining with friends. The room however is quite large, mostly to accommodate the wine tower, which makes it hard to create a warm intimate atmosphere. But the did a good job with it. The Wine Angel is a side show and should not be what you come here for

    Where else can you watch angels in action while you dine? I am referring to the "wine angels" who use cables to reach wine bottles in a glass enclosed silo. The food was tremendous! From the ricotta cheese and mushrooms (appetizer) to the bone-in filet mignon, the food was cooked to perfection and the flavors were fantastic. My wife enjoyed the rib-eye steak very much as well. When we come back to Las Vegas, we will make certain to come back to Aureole.

    This was my 2nd time dining at Aureole in Vegas. I've dined at the NYC restaurant numerous times. Our dinner this week was outstanding. We each had one of the nightly specials and it couldn't of been better. The service was very attentive and the Sommelier, Kyran O'Dwyer made great recommendations on the wines. He went beyond the call of duty to discuss the individual wines and just the overall wine grading system. It was truly a memorable evening.

    I went with 5 friends on a bachelorette party. Everyone else got the blue cheese crusted steak. They all loved it! I got the ahi seared tuna and scallops duo. I wasn't overly impressed. Ditto on the sides. We chose the garlic pomme puree, creamy spinach, and parmesan fries. All were just so-so. The cocktail menu was small although they did have a full bar menu. I don't regret going but wouldn't go back.

    We had an incredible time at Aureole, the food was fantastic, and the service provided to us by Eddie was far above and beyond what was required. We skipped the show we were going to attend that night, and chose to sit on the patio by the swans. An incredible dining experience that we will never forget!

    My husband and I had really enjoyed our dinner there 5 years ago, and we were looking forward to dinning there again. This time it was a little disappointing. The food was ok and the server was not able to divide our group bill of 12 ppl. It was taking so long we had to put a large bill through on one persons credit card just so we could leave a half hour after we were done eating.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    We asked the restaurant for a romantic table to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated in a very quiet area, with a view of the water feature out back. Our server, Eric, was amazing! We started the evening with a free sample of appetizers. We both chose the parallel tasting menu and oh what a choice! The lobster pairing was by far my favorite, lobster ravioli on one side, 'surf and turf' on the other. The surf was a Wagyu filet topped with a lobster tail and cooked to perfection. Every one of the four courses was beautiful and scrumptious. The chef even made us a special dessert, a platter of eight different sweets with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. With so many places to choose from, it's nice to know locals are appreciated!

    I was extremely disappointed last Thursday to discover that the $39 Unusual Suspects Wine was limited to Nevada residents. Yes, it turns out there was an asterisk at the bottom of the webpage that mentioned this, but it was the reason we chose this restaurant and the rude response from the waiter that this was "only for locals" significantly detracted from what otherwise would have been a fantastic evening with wonderful food.

    My wife and I were nervous about eating at a restaurant this nice, but everyone on staff, from the maitre d to the man doing bread and water service to our server (Alfredo) made us feel very comfortable and welcome. Alfredo walked us through the menu well, answering our questions as they came up and being very patient with us. We ended up going with the tasting menu, which was the right choice; there were several items on there I wouldn't normally order, and while I didn't care for every dish, I enjoyed trying them out. There was only one hitch through the entire meal: our main course came out cold. When I talked to Alfredo about it, though, he immediately apologized and had them fire another for us, which came out quickly and hot.

    I guess I expected more from the ambience. One, they had a live jazz trio playing which I normally wouldn't complain about but the drums were way too loud in the cavernous space, if they (and the piano and bass) were muted it would've been fine but the occasional boom and crash of the cymbals were distracting. Also there was a huge window that exposed some sort of service area so I saw uniformed guys coming off work and riding on carts going by. The space is also open to a crowded walkway where the occasional kids and loud frat guys could be heard. Other than that the french onion soup was a must order and the duck was very good.

I asked to be moved to a window table overlooking a waterfall which they did graciously. Food was super, I picked a set 4 course dinner of lamb (1 chop, yes one) but good. My wife had salmon which was very good. Wine list is overwhelming.

    We waited 20 minutes for our table receiving not the slightest sense of an apology. Indeed,my inquiry after waiting 15 minutes was greeted with an impatient sigh. When we were finally seated (at a table evidently between stations)it then took just under another 20 minutes for a waiter to appear and only after we flagged one down.The attitude from the moment we entered was that we were privileged to be there and that they had little obligation to make us feel welcome or offer normal service courtesies. The meal was quite good so this review is a classic case of folks in a service business shooting themselves in the foot.
