A word from BOTERO – Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
Botero, the contemporary steakhouse at Encore, has quickly emerged as the prime dining spot in a resort – and moreover a town – famous for its profusion of first-rate options. Chef Mark LoRusso lends his modern touch to all the steakhouse classics, updating familiar and comforting dishes. This stunning rotunda-like space leaves behind the staid, heavy aesthetic associated with chophouses for something sexy, surreal and altogether different.

    I was very excited to dine at Botero because of the great reviews and beautiful decor inside. Unfortunately my expereince was not great. It could have been an off night because the restaurant was very busy... We arrive just before 8 pm for an 8 pm reservation. At 8:15 we were seated at an outside table without having been given a choice. The night was chilly, but we were told we would have to wait even longer for an inside table. There was a heater next to the table that was not on, and although we asked several times and were promised that someone would come out and take care of it, no one did. I finally had to leave the restaurant to go upstairs to my room to get a sweater. I had the vegan tasting menu which was good, but none of the five courses were exceptional. There was a exceedingly long wait between each course; the very nice waitress did appologize. Finally, this was a special birthday dinner, and the restaurant provided a piece of cake with a candle. Unfortunately it came out with the check as an afterthought rather than with our dessert course. I believe that this restaurant is better than what we experienced, but I would be reluctant to return because of the expense.

    Our waiter was so incredibly friendly, fun, outgoing, and helpful. He made our experience absolutely wonderful. Also, we chose to sit outside in the patio gardens. This was absolutely my favorite part. It was incredibly romantic, and oddly enough, quiet. You are on the strip, but you don't have to hear it constantly while eating. Absolutely would recommend to others! Thanks Botero!

    We had to wait more than 30 minutes beyond our scheduled reservation time to be seated, though we were told multiple times that it would just be 5 minutes. This not acceptable for this caliber of restaurant. Overbooking tables, then flat out lying to your customers does not make a for a nice start to the evening. Given this, you would think the manager would have at least apologized and offered a free appetizer but he/she could not even be bothered to speak to us even after we asked the hostess. It's a shame because the food was quite good.

    What a great find. The ambiance was amazing with very cool artwork and sculptures by Botero. Sat in the outside area which was absolutely lovely - overlooking the pool and all of the gorgeous landscaping. We had the tuna tartar, ribeye steak, lobster mac & cheese, sauteed mushrooms and squash brulee. ALL were absolutely amazing. Finished with the tres leche pumpkin dessert which was also delicious. The service was excellent. Would highly recommend.

    A friend recommended Botero's after they stayed in Vegas and we were not disappointed. From the start the service was wonderful, the staff were very polite and ensured that we always had a drink and made menu recommendations. The restaurant itself was beautiful with Botero's art on the walls, this was definitely a place fit for a romantic meal. The food was also amazing! It would be hard to find a nicer steak and we didn't in Vegas. Whilst we ate in many wonderful places in Vegas Botero's came out on top for us.

    There was absolutely nothing to complain about at this restaurant. Everything was so fantastic, and my son and I were just having an ordinary dinner...no special occasion. We sprang for the expensive, but absolutely delicious appetizer special of ravioli with a truffle sauce and truffles. Our coffee rubbed seasoned steak was plenty to split and outstanding to boot. Perfectly cooked. Caesar salad was excellent. And waiter, Daniel, was outstanding. Only ordered one side, but like most places, easily shared, and difficult to finish it was so plentiful. We have been to 20 high end restaurants in Las Vegas over the last 8 years as part of our annual father/son gambling and dining weekend. This one clearly broke all our previous highs".

    We were three guys out for a steak during a convention and had an outstanding meal. They were running a little behind on our reservation but not a problem due to comfortable bar and available sates in the entrance area. Very comfortable. Once seated the Tablet wine list and menu were perfect. All Steaks, Sides and appetizers were first class! The service and décor also impressed. All in all an A+ evening.

    Nice ambience, excellent personable service. Food was ok but nothing really memorable. Decent food quality, preparation lacked flavor and creativity. Vegetarian options were somewhat bland. For the price would generally expect a little more food wise. However service was impeccable and perhaps it was an off night for the kitchen. Would try again and order differently next time.

    We had the best dining experience of the 7 days I was in Las Vegas this past week. Of course all the restaurants in the Wynn are a wonderful experience but this was our absolute favorite. The service was excellent due to our server, Ramon. We were seated in the main dining room close to the main entrance. We had a great view of the passers by as well as the beautiful dining room. The appetizers were awesome, and the main course was so good. It was the best meal of the week and we ate at a number of other well known restaurants such as II Mulino,STK Steakhouse,Javiers, just to name a few of them. In addition, the bill was not ridiculously priced. In talking to the waiter he was also knowledgable about the art hanging in the restaurant

    Dined on 10/24/2014
    Our gold standard for steak in Vegas is CUT. So, Botero had lots to live up to. First, Let's start with the restaurant. It was a little "provencial" for our tastes as we tend to like more modern decor, but overall it wasn't overdone. Second, the service was pretty good, not stellar. Certainly not the orchestrated dance that CUT has mastered. Our waitress was pleasant and for the most part attentive, although we did have to pour our own wine while we watched her refill a table full of guys multiple times. The food was priced reasonable and flavors were good for the most part. Both of our steaks were under seasoned (ie salt...don't really understand that but it was). Sides were ok. Honored our birthday and anniversary note in the reservation.

    The restaurant is round with tables along the windows and in the center. Outside is the illuminated pool. At 8pm the restaurant was already packed, but since the tables are spaced apart, it doesn't seem crowded. The steaks were cooked to perfection.

Every dish we had was excellent. We had the Tuna tartar for appraiser along with the beef tartar both were very good would recommend both dishes. The steak was like butter cooked to perfection this is what the restaurant was know for and they did not disappoint. Would definitely go back next time, great find!

    Beautiful restaurant in Encore. I have been here several times and Botero's never disappoints. The NY strip was amazing. For a unique side dish try the Fall squash gratin, it was like crème brulee but with veggies! The décor is quite elegant and outdoor dining is also available. Nice vibe too. Best steakhouse in Las Vegas!

    Botero is fast becoming our "go to" restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip. The rich, soothing interior design and well-planned table placements make this gem equally perfect for large groups or intimate dinners for two. The menu is exciting and varied, appealing to all palettes. If you like rack of lamb, this is by far the best preparation I have ever found- and woth every penny!!

    We booked the Botero as are only fine dining experience while staying in Vegas and can only say that it was the best experience in a restaurant I have ever had. The service was exceptional, friendly but at the same time professional and the options for the food and drink was incredible. We all ordered one of the steaks and the looks on everyone's faces as soon as they had started eating was one of astonishment as we have never tasted steak that great before. We have all ready promised each other that when we come back to Vegas we will be dining at the Botero again and it will be the first thing I get booked up to everyone at the Botero for making the experience one we will never forget a massive thank you from all the boys from England

    After reading the reviews I picked Botero, bad idea. The hostess wasn't very friendly and gave us the "what are you doing here look". After waiting for about 10 mins with reservations we were seated and that's when the horror began. Our waitress took our drink order then disappeared for 15 mins, after she returned I expressed the extent of my hunger and she brought out bread 10 mins later. It took 35 mins for the food to come and the waitress never followed up to check in on us or provide an update on the delay of food. Once we got our food no one checked on us. I had to ask another waiter for my check because mine never came back. The manager said he comped a portion of my check, however I was still charged for the full meal.

    What a tremendous way to end our trip to Vegas where we celebrated our father's 90th birthday. The menu selection was fantastic, the food even better (every steak was cooked to perfection and we loved the stuffed potatoes and Botero fries) and the service superb. And, I sincerely appreciate that the staff remembered all of my special requests. My father lives in Colombia and especially enjoyed the Colombian connection through Botero's art. Thank you for making this trip so memorable.

    Dined at Botero while in Vegas last week and could not be more pleased - so much so that I will be heading back next week. The vegan tasting menu was a deal at only $65 and was PHENOMENAL. Every course was thoughtful, balanced, delicious. We sat on the patio by one of the pools and had a wonderful evening start to finish.

    Went there for my birthday after hearing a friend he had his best steak tartare ever on this place. And effectively it's really really good!!! A must order if you go.. Australian Waggyu beef taratare... Ufff to die for! The octupus is also good .. I enjoyed more the appetizers than my main course... I had tried much better ones in other places maybe I ordered the wrong cut for this place (the bone-in rib eye). Wine list is awesome, decoration amazing with original Botero sculptures and also great outdoor tables.

    Friendly, attentive service and great Vegas ambiance. Food was disappointing, which ruined the experience. Oysters we were served were clearly bad, so sent them back and were given a new platter which were great. Ordered a strip steak, which is their specialty. Was brought out way overcooked, which was immediately visible to the server when I cut into it. She took it back, but the next one was raw and cold throughout the middle. By this point the rest of our party had long since finished their dinner, so rather than have them "go throw it back on the grill for a minute" we decided to cancel the steak order and leave. Manager came out and apologized and did right by us, but still spent 2hrs there and left without dinner.

    Dining in the presence of the art of Botero was a privilege. His art added energy and comfort to the atmosphere. The service was THE best; friendly, professional, knowledgeable, quick and competent. Kudos to whoever does the hiring. The view, the colors, the draperies, the spacing of the tables, the linens and dinnerware all combined to create an elegant setting. The iPad menu - GENIUS! The menu was inspired. The food was outstanding; delicious and flavorful. I had a cocktail that made me wish I could drink forever. When I return to Vegas, Botero will be a must.

    My GF and I were in Vegas, and we had dinner at Botero prior to seeing Le Reve, and it was excellent. The service, the attention to detail, the food and the wine list were all a "10". We did not have time for desert, but the appetizers, the salads the main courses of steak were wow all the way around. It was a little pricey but well worth it for a last night in town. I highly recommend Alex as a server, and the ambience is also very good.

    In a city noted for many fantastic restaurants by famous chefs, Botero is worth a visit. Although the menu is not extensive, there are numerous choices that catch your eye and you would like to try -- and the ones we selected did not disappoint (except the cake pop dessert). The steaks were excellent -- crisp sear on the outside, tender and juicy and just the exacting level of 'doneness' we each ordered. The roasted mushroom side was excellent. We ordered the chick pea fries, but initially received the regular steak fries -- which was quickly corrected. The service is attentive, but not annoying. The atmosphere is sophisticated, but not stuffy. There is enough energy that you can enjoy yourself, but also have a relaxed conversation.
