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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We went to this restaurant for a pre-birthday dinner. I marked on my Open Table reservation that we were coming to celebrate a birthday. I never said a word to anyone once we got there - but dessert was brought to the table for my date at the end of dinner. He was so surprised and we truly enjoyed the entire evening!"

  • "We went for anniversary dinner. We early and initially seated in middle of restaurant whilst more romantic views were available. 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."

  • "After multiple reported food and service issues to our waiter, we were continuly ignored and did not receive even an acknowledgment of the issues. Steaks ordered rare and being delivered medium, wine with so much sediment it needed to be decanted (but they didn't), a wine server with a very cold and snippy attitude and service standard. We were truly disappointed, especially for this price point."

  • "This is NOW my "go to" when in Vegas. My first experience blew me away; my second a culinary scream of appreciation and delight!!! I could write a great many things about Aureole - but less is best as it is "a must go to experience" for yourself and senses!! ENJOY! Thank you to the Aureole TEAM - our guests said is was the best restaurant they have been to!"

  • "My husband and I tried the Parallel tasting menu for our anniversary. The service was prompt, engaging and knowledgeable. The food was divine, inspired and plated beautifully. It is expensive, but you're paying for the fine dining experience and the chef's creativity and skill. It is worth every penny."

  • " Had high expectations having visited other restaurants in the group. Had the pork chop, nothing outstanding, no wow factor in the dish, shouldn't call it a pig ear salad if there was only two slivers of dehydrated pig air. Nothing special about the chicken entree. Octopus salad needed some form of additional citrus to make it pop. Lava cake was quite frankly blasé blasé. Chocolate was presented nicely but the dark chocolate sauce overpowered the delicate churros. Peanut butter pops were ok, popcorn component again didn't pop. Great texture on the churros, they were tasty. Although money wasn't a factor, for what we paid we left unsatisfied. First time we left a restaurant and no one wanted to discuss the food. The hostesses were great"

  • "Went to Aureole just before a show and ordered the seasonal tasting menu (4 courses). Every course was fantastic and the main course (rack of lamb) was out of this world! My waiter, Jalil, knows the menu inside and out and explains everything with a wonderful level of detail. In addition to the phenomenal food, you can watch the wine angels as they are lifted and lowered by wire to retrieve bottles from a transparent tower three stories tall. I would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!"

  • "Lotta show, not a lot of menu substance, great wine list, high price. The trapeze artist retrieving your wine from the wine tower is, indeed, a sight. But the food is only ok and the menu is surprisingly uninteresting. My risotto dish was undercooked and flavorless. The "private room" is not walled off, and so we were all treated to a very loud microphone. For the price, no thanks. Wouldn't return, even on third-party-payor status. Too many other better choices."

  • "Read about this nice spot in Wine Spectator Mag. Had to sample and savor next time in Sin City. A sinful experience with a WV Oregon Pinot Noir & Perfectly cooked NY melt N' mouth strip steak with a nice medley of Artisan baby vegetables on top of a bed of asparagus. Simple perfection."

  • "My husband and I had never heard of Aureole. We were acknowledged and assisted immediately. We sat at a very intimate table for two next to a very large window with a view. Service was good and we would refer anybody looking for intimate and diverse dining experience."

  • "If read any negative reports, they have no idea what they are talking about. I'm a foodie and live for my wine and quite possibly one of the hardest people to please when it comes to those and service. They excelled in all catagories. Their bone in ribeye is one of the best in the entire country."

  • "Food was incredible and the waiters were attentive and pleasant. The Hamachi appetizer melted in my mouth and the melon added juicy sweetness. The duck breast was the best we had ever eaten, so tender and the orange topping was a perfect accompaniment. BUT the sommelier was extremely unfriendly - she never smiled even when we tried to joke around with her. She didn't really listen to us, but instead listed all red wine varietals that they had, which was not helpful at all. I was wishing we had not asked to see the sommelier. Her attitude was surprising to us and ruined an otherwise lovely evening."

  • "I made reservations in Jan for June 9th at 5:30 for the Michael Jackson (The One) show and dinner. I asked to have flowers (I ordered) waiting on our table then bring her gifts once desert was served. I arrived, The gifts were on the table. I explained that was not what I wanted. The young lady at the desk took charge! She got a lady to sneak the gifts off of the table. Our waiter Eric took amazing care of us both, he explained every detail to my mother also commented on the menu. We did not wait long for any appetizers, the main course, and desert also a birthday cup cake! I am born and raised in Las Vegas, a hard critic on service only due to knowing this town is all about service. Truly a birthday my mother will always remember! Jasmine"

  • "Aureole Las Vegas was a wonderful venue! I was there on a Monday with a group of about 40 or so and the food, service and ambience was excellent. They easily handled our many guests and kept the evening fun, lively, and well served. The private room area was discrete, but not completely isolated - so you didn't feel like you were not part of the restaurant. Later in the week after a show, I returned with my wife on a Friday night dinner and it didn't disappoint - not that I expected it to. I have been here several times and Aureole - LV is great. The onion soup, by the way, will draw me back every time."

  • "Aureole was fantastic on all accounts. The food was absolutely outstanding, and the service was excellent. The wine tower with the "wine angel" getting the bottles made for an extra wow factor that really made my evening with a key client and our wives special. Really nice fine dining at a very reasonable price compared to other Vegas fine dining spots. Great wine list with some good values to be had if you dig into it a little bit. "

  • "A very good experience, found via recommendations. Good food, good service, well appointed dining room. Excellent variety with eclectic menu representing many styles. Good options on prix fixe or a la carte. Fair pricing for the experience however, beware the Chef's Specials. The "unannounced" price was significantly our of line with standard menu items. The ones ordered were indeed good, comparable to other items; just seemed a bit high. Good presentation and delivery, attentive and non-intrusive service with good input as requested. The desserts were the highlight, the triple chocolate item was exceptional. A special raspberry sorbet was equally outstanding. A nice touch with live music; appropriate for the environment."

  • "I took my girlfriend here while in Vegas for a romantic night. The filet I got was cooked very well but the salmon my girlfriend ordered was bland. I understand it was a la carte but $16 for a side ceasar salad was ridiculous. Overall I would give it a 5 out of 10."

We had one seasonal menu and one a la carte order. Excellent dishes with beautiful presentation. Plus, a 3-piece combo playing jazz, which added to the ambience. "
