- WowFoodie2400VIPDined on 11/24/2014Great food, great service and great ambience, what more can you ask for? The expansive kitchen is impressive. There was just two of us and we wanted to order other items. We whined about how large the steaks were and the server kindly recommended a steak that wasn't on the menu, but small enough for us to share. It was a very memorable meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Everything except the steak was excellentlxm3636VIPDined on 11/23/2014A very inventive menu, with appetizers and starters so good, you wish you could just concentrate on that portion on the menu. Portion sizes are of varying size, so make sure to double-check with the waiter before indulging too much - the foie gras, for example, is a single bite, while the beef tartare is enough to feed a small family. The steak (you can only order porterhouse-style cuts and pay per pound) was a disappointment - there was so much bone and untrimmed fat in the (supposedly) 2+ pound portion, the edible part of it was quite small, and quite a bit chewy. Overall I was not impressed with the quality of the meat or level of preparation (what was supposedly medium-rare lacked juices, so was closer to medium-well than anything), but I wouldn't rule out the restaurant because of it - next time I'd either go for a smaller steak (or lamb, or fish), or just spend my time on appetizer menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/22/2014The food and service were excellent. It is fairly expensive but worth itSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Everything Done Right But. . .Ontheroadagain26VIPDined on 11/20/2014On a check list of what is right about this restaurant, everything appears great. Excellent meats, Wonderful ambience and culinary theatre. Superb service. And, yet, when our party of four assessed our dinner, we all concluded that there was no "value" to our experience--that is, the cost did not match up with the overall experience. Restaurant is just plain overpriced when compared to comparable or better restaurant experiences in New York or Chicago.
- BazaarDined on 11/18/2014The steak was good, but nothing exceptional especially for the price. The smell in the restaurant really makes it smell better than it was. I think it was expensive for what you got. And not sure why it took so long, about an hour, to cook it. Since it takes so long to prepare, I think they should offer more and better appetizers. I was not impressed with the sausage appetizer or the other one, (sorry forgot what it was called). Martini's were some of the worst we ever had and at $18 a pop, you would have thought the waiter or manager would have replaced them with something else for free. I don't see any reason to go back.Special Features:
- Outstanding!ToddVIPDined on 11/17/2014Great cocktails (the Hemingway was outstanding) and delicious rib-eye steak. We had grilled octopus and tomato tartare. I will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Where is the beef?dissapointedeaterDined on 11/16/2014What a amazing setup, as you enter the restaurant you will see the open cooking station with open flame grill,meat displayed,meat in a case being dry aged,suckling pig ready to be roasted. At the back, hams are hanged and displayed. Although, do not understand why have a communal table, we had a good seat for two. A feast of meat on the menu, love it! We were ready to order meat, meat, meat. The waiter said Mishima Reserve, WA , Black Wagyu and Lindsay Ranch, OR Washugyu Angus was not available. Harris Ranch CA Black Angus was the only available beef of rib steak. What? We came to eat wagyu, He said they did not have the permit to sell because they are called mindful meat. It is an older cow than what US is required, huh? But it is in the dry aging case ? We are from California we can get Harris Ranch anywhere, he tols us ore stories why they cannot serve the other meat, sounds fishy, but we settle with Harris Ranch. No choice. :( Meat are charged by the weight, we ordered Butifarra Spiral Simply Sausage it had a very good flavor at least it complimented the disapointment we had with the beef rib steak. We wanted wagyu. We came to eat wagyu. Do not forget to order Pa Amb Tomaquet this was memorable. Regret ordering Anna potato and catalan spinach. Dessert was a small bite size delights. Ordered 4 kinds, waiter did not tell us or did not notice we could of ordered 10 pieces for $25 instead of ordering each for $5-7.Some items are available at Bazaar in Los Angeles. We wanted at first to sit near the grill, good thing. After we left the restaurant we had the smell of charcoal on us. We stayed in the SLS Hotel, had to take a shower after. They need to ventilate better. We enjoyed the experience, waiter was laid back . Will be back when they get the permit to sell the wagyu labelled mindful meat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent service, top notch.nonfussydinerDined on 11/15/2014Food arrived out of sync, but it was ok, waiter looked after us so well. Very tasty.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- eclectic does not equal great foodfrxdustmanDined on 11/14/2014First off....let me say that I LOVE Jose Andres' restaraunts usually. China Poblano in the Cosmopolitan is one of my favorite casual eats in vegas. I love Jose's eclectic style he brings to food. BUT...if you want a great steak, there are so many better places in Vegas. The smaller tapas plates were great! Sloppy Joes, the red chili, the sprouts, sausage....all great. But, if you want a good steak...there are so many other options.Special Features:
- OverratedAMH1VIPDined on 11/14/2014It was an uneven meal. The waitress started strong and finished terribly. Some of the dishes were great and one was inedible. They push the crazily expensive pig really hard. It's Ok at maybe half the price. The cured meats were great. The tomato tartare was really good. The potato pancake was too salty to eat. Overall at $200.00 per person this was an awful value.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/14/2014Overpriced and chef's execution of the preparation was off by just enough to make in not "right". Nowhere near the experience or quality of Jaleo or e which are two of the most spectacular restaurants in Vegas.
- Great idea, soft executionDansDined on 11/13/2014Great space but somewhat overwrought and that leads to servers and preparation that leaves something to be desired at the prices they are getting. The steak was excellent, the sides were excellent, but one appetizer was forgotten, another was delivered half way through the entree. More so, there speciality of the house is Suckling Pig, and there were out of it. Oh well. But the waiter did feel bad, changed some things in the check and they borough there "Seder box" for free. I do suggest the tomatoe salad, the caukiflower steak and the pork sandwhich. Not so much Theives buttery mashed potatoes, but they warn you that it's all butterSpecial Features:
- Would not return.JJSYDined on 11/13/2014The prices at this place are higher end, not quite as high as the best places in Vegas but one tier below. The prices are not justified. The service was flawless. The staff were all very friendly. Overall the food was aweful. We shared about 6 appetizers and let the service choose them. The appetizer courses i would rate, half were great the other half average. The main courses were where this places completely fails. We ordered 1/4 suckling pig, bone in ribeye and tuna belly. They were out of the pig. The tuna wasnt in edible. All 4 of us tried one bit and that was it. The ribeye was medium despite being ordered rare. The quality of the beef was questionable. I have bought ribeyes at my local supermarket that were far superior. Save yourself the money and experience and go ANYWHERE else!
- LacklusterOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/10/2014I was really excited to try bazaar meat. It boasts to have a wide variety of meat for the adventurous appetite. While this would normally evoke images of bison, rabbit or maybe alligator. Something fat more exotic than the suckling pig which is the highlight on the menu. This is at odds with a decor that resembles a hunting lodge, yet there is no wild game on the menu. The menu itself is a huge conglomerate of land, sea and chef boyardee. You can get blue fin tins belly, a nice steak or a suckling pig. I went with the suckling pig as it seemed to be the more adventurous option. It was disappointing, being bland with tough skin. The other options we ordered were just as bland (such as the "gourmet" sloppy Joe and hot dog). Overall mehSpecial Features:
- No service !FrEDBXLDined on 11/9/2014Cold place in temperature & in service. They have chance that food is more than correct ! Meat is sale by weight and the waiter do not hesitate to make you order of peace of meat sold in Lbs noted 1 becomes 3 ! He give no information about the way the meet by weight is charged. Everything arrive late on the table : wine , salad (never arrive) ; Service is disorganised ; waiter run always but never on the good way. A good manager is clearly missing ! Service tip was sanctioned by only 1$ on a bill of 360$
- Great Food & Presentation*****LVyesDined on 11/9/2014A great place to enjoy your friends while eating . I'm not a meat eater..but I enjoyed everything I had to eat. My husband loved the Meat & Pork. Our friends enjoyed the whole experience & the meat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Jamon Iberico de Belota: a tasty insult...JoseMiguelDined on 11/9/2014Food is made from high quality ingredients and prepared very well however, in MY opinion: 1. Undoubtedly, the Iberico de Belota is the best Jamon in the world. I did not feel ripped off that the "racion" goes for $70, but when it arrived at the table. This Jamon is usually served in small portions but I felt INSULTED by the size ot seemed to be a sample. I felt like the owner sent me a message telling me "...this is what I decided you will get for $70, if you are not happy - don't order it again..." 2. The prices for most wines are way over the top. However, since I was already insulted by the small size of the Jamon that I was served, I took a Malbec (also for a ridiculous price) to help it go down. We ended up with a $500 check for 2 persons. It was a good dinner, could have been a great one one should the owners (NOT the restaurant team) treat their customers with a bit more of respect when it comes to the Iberico they serve. Since this is a very special place in the Las Vegas food landscape, I will go back (beats flying all the way to Madrid and eat at Museo del Jamon...).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SuperbBradVIPDined on 11/8/2014Extremely fresh and Outstanding! Service was excellent.Special Features:
- Has potential but needs improvingFMcFoodieDined on 11/7/2014Brought 2 friends from out of town. We wanted to try something new. This place has outstanding food quality for sure. The wine list is pretty good as well. We were served out of sequence, some stuff came to the table cold, we got the side dishes before the meat came to the table ... by the time we got our steak it was cold ... and so were the side dishes ... they replaced everything and got it right the second time around. A bit disorganized for the price we paid. Too bad ! The food was very good ... we ll have to try back again to see if the service gets better ...Special Features:
- AmazingOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/7/2014Service was great and food simple incredible!! Totally recommended!!Special Features:
- Extraordinary restaurantgirl507Dined on 11/7/2014This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever visited. The meats are displayed in refrigerated cases as you walk in,you can see the cooks working on them.They have an oyster bar in one of the rooms, also very beautiful. The food was amazing, and well presented, very creative such as the croquetas de pollo served inside a "tennis shoe", the washugyu beef carpaccio,thin slices of raw beef perfectly marbled rolled into Grissini, served with an onion-parmesan crema. We ordered the chicharron a giant piece of pork skin, light and crunchy which the server broke into pieces with a meat pounder.The beef by the pound is quite pricey but worth it, the sides are very good. All in this was by far our favorite restaurant in Vegas.Special Features:
- Great food, questionable conceptOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 11/7/2014Without a doubt, great food. Our group had a variety of starters and main corses and all loved the food. The only negative is the restaurant concept of food being delivered to the table as it is ready in the kitchen which doesn't work well for a group that orders a variety of dishes. Although our server did a good job to try and manage, we had people nearly done while others were just starting.Special Features:
- It's ComplicatedGngrgVIPDined on 11/7/2014Overall we had a great dining experience in that everything that we ordered was very good. The issue is the layout of the menus and how you decipher what to order. The six in our party reviewed the menus for a while and then decided to let someone, me, take charge of figuring it out. There are several bite-sized items to order by the piece. Then there are tartars, carpaccios, cured meats, and shellfish selections to choose from. The main course selections are again sized and price to share as well. Overall it becomes a bit overwhelming to try to figure this out as a group. However, you want to go as a group so that you can sample various things. Our waiter was helpful in the navigation of it all.Special Features:
- WOW - great place top eatGlobaliconVIPDined on 11/4/2014one comment was the beef was cool when served instead of hot - but so amazing anyway!Special Features:
- Meat Lover's SpotMBFoodieVIPDined on 11/2/2014Dined Sunday night at Bazaar Meats in the SLS. I'm a big fan of Chef Andres, and his meat centric Bazaar Meats shows a new side to his abilities. This is Chef Andres ultimate design of a Spanish steakhouse, and the food more than meats his goal. The appetizer portions (steak tartare and carpaccio and parmesan) were very generous, and the main entrees (suckling pig and Harris Ranch ribeye) even more so. All cooked to perfection. Service is impeccable when the food is delivered. Drink and wine service was a bit slower. Location in the SLS is really funky, and doesn't do service to this great restaurant. Bring a full wallet though, because prices are also large.Special Features:
- Best Steak in Vegas?OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/1/2014For the time being, a hearty yes. Don't be put off by the Spanish influences and you'll be rewarded with a memorable meal that few "steakhouses" can provide. It's got the bar, it's got the service (and just a few weeks open) and its got the kitchen to knock it out of the park. I would suggest doing as many of the apps that you think wise, then choose either the suckling pig or hybrid wagyu angus, a bottle of wine and ditch the potatoes or other sides, the meats don't need it. If you must have a veg, Delmonico potatoes will fit the bill. A few dishes seem to be just for show, cotton candy foie or s'mores, but the rest of the menu is great.Special Features:
- A MUST TRY...OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/1/2014Fantastic atmosphere, amazing staff, and unique food that doesn't compare to typical restaurant menus! The menu is designed for sharing which is perfect for groups or just a fun evening. Again, you must try it and you'll definitely want to go again and again, I know we are already planning another visit.Special Features:
- Highly recommended!GazelleDined on 10/29/2014I made a last minute booking and did not regret it. The suckling pig was to die for, and all the rest was pretty good too.Special Features:
- A perfect eveningemw0ngVIPDined on 10/26/2014We had the chicken croquetas, Harris Ranch rib steak, catalan spinach, and Robuchon potato. Everything was tasty! In particular, the rib steak was cooked to perfection and very tender and the Robuchon potato was so smooth and buttery! Delicious!! For dessert, they have lots of mini dessert options, so I got the chocolate cake and the raspberry yuzu tart. The chocolate cake was more like a light layer of cake with chocolate mousse and a layer of dark chocolate ganache...not too sweet, just the way I like it. The tart was amazing; the yuzu flavor was distinct and strong...perfect for anyone who likes tart things. The service was perfect and the ambience was great for a romantic dinner with my husband.Special Features:
- Never disappointedichimichiDined on 10/25/2014We went there for my birthday with my girlfriends...we loved it! we have gone to the one in Beverly Hills and the experience in Vegas was different but great! Sloppy Joes are a must!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- food was just good.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/24/2014This is a place you have to "try" because of the rare and different meats. However, if you are sensitive to texture it might be difficult to eat some of them.... Our waiter was great and so it made our experience "good"I would recommend this to a friend.
- ridiculously expensive, unorganizedbizarroDined on 10/19/2014They have multiple kitchens so food comes out in crazy order. I got my appetizer about 15 minutes before my drink and everybody got their appetizers at different times.Special Features:
- AmazingOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/18/2014A Las Vegas must! Exciting, new entertaining and amazing!Special Features:
- Amazing, but60BuffetDined on 10/17/2014We had the most amazing dinner. All of the dishes were amazing and so over the top yummy! The only issue we had was we left what we ordered in our waiters hands (and he made excellent choices ) we didn't know how many courses were coming and didn't pace ourselves. We were so full by the last 3 dishes we could barely take one bite of each. Would suggest you ask what's coming so you can pace yourself. We would do this again but with the different info in a heart beat!Special Features:
- Not up to expectationsvegasbillDined on 10/16/2014We were warmly greeted and promptly seated at a comfortable table. Cocktails were very expensive, not very large, took a long time to get and were brought one at a time instead of all at once. The last, a glass of chardonnay, took 15 minutes to fetch. Appetizers were pretentious and not memorable. The large bone-in rib steak for two, the house specialty, takes 50 minutes to prepare to medium rare so we passed. The 22 oz bone-in strip steak was well prepared at medium rare and tasty, but not enough for two. The whole chicken was excellent. Our sides arrived after we were finished with the meat so we weren't really interested in them. Dessert was ordinary for restaurant of that supposed quality. Lots of flash without much substance.Special Features:
- Great foodSWBChampDined on 10/16/2014The food was fantastic, especially liked the quirky appetizers like their take on Fish tacos we had. The steak was beautifully cooked and all of it was eddible. I have been to many restaurants where the fat is not properly rendered and is either chewy or unappetizing but this was not the case. The dessert was wonderful and having the chef pick out a 10 options provided a nice mix of flavors with them happy to accommodate a slight request of no coffee in the desert. No complaints from me here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- the pig had no chanceSmileyVIPDined on 10/14/2014Wow. Just wow. The suckling pig was amazing. The skin was crispy and inside tender and juicy. My cocktails were fantastic as well. The foie gras cotton candy made me laugh out loud. Too bad the sls isn't doing well, if this place can keep up this kind of quality this is an anchor property. Jose anders knows his stuff and not just an absentee celebrity chef. He comes in often. Kudus to the staff for an excellent well orchestrated 5 star experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- excellentlittleorphannieDined on 10/12/2014the service here was spot on and the food was great. everything we ordered was light, but filling enough to walk (roll) out content. i was very appreciative to the pastry chef for taking our special request. one of our side dishes we ordered was the baby corn dusted with popcorn powder. i asked if they could serve us vanilla ice cream, dusted with that popcorn powder. to my joy, and delight, that dessert completed out meal! hope this treat makes it on the menu!!Special Features:
- Stellar, a must in Las VegasJoeJDined on 10/12/2014We have been to Bazaar in Los Angeles and the other Jose Andres restaurant at the Cosmopolitan, but Bazaar meats really stands out. Service was excellent, and the food was creative and truly delicious. We started with the Fois gras lollipops, the Asian taco (one of our favorites), and the Super Giant Chicharron. The Rib Eye was great along with the bruschetta. The only thing we did not like we're the leeks with the chipotle sauce. The menu was extensive so we will have to go back to try more. The drink menu had a few stand outs including the mojito, which someone at the table should just order for the spectacle of it.Special Features:
