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.

    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.

    Food was great, service was average at best. The atmosphere is really great. We were double charged for our dinner, which even for Vegas was a little overkill. Nobody could help resolve the extra billing and the manager failed to call me back or email as he said he would. #overrated

    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.

    We celebrated my wife's birthday & experienced wonderful food & service. My steak was the best I've ever had, along with the brueled butternut squash. My wife had scallops which were perfectly prepared. Our server was pleasant, efficient and very accommodating. Lovely atmosphere. We would definitely return.

    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.

    We initially booked Lunch at Botero because we heard about their incredible Vegan Tasting Menu. We called the restaurant to confirm we were able to order it for lunch and they told us it was available anytime of day...cut to arriving for lunch, and bring told it's not available. :-( The meal we did have was very good and it was not the server's fault.

    There are many fine dinning restaurants in Las Vegas. We have eaten at many over the years. Some were great others were a disappointment considering the caliber of the top name Chefs whose names appear. This is a fine dinning restaurant worthy of the quality that the Wynn expects. Good variety, willingness to prepare to your requests, and a great place for a special ocassion such as an anniversary.

    We live in Las Vegas, and dined at Botero for the first time. The overall experience was very nice, absolutely no complaints, but nothing to rave about either. My husband had Halibut, I had Snapper. Both were well prepared, presented nicely, but again, nothing special. Between the two, the Snapper was better. Service was pleasant, the atmosphere was low key. The 'by the glass' winelist was very short. We had a pleasant evening, but we probably won't be back.

    Everything seemed to be timed out perfectly. The servers were very accommodating as they took pictures for us and switched wines by the glass as we tasted a couple before settling in on the right one. Best tip, sample the wines by the glass before ordering. The cheaper wines on the list are not very good. We ended up going with one of my favs and bought a bottle of Stags Leap @ $165.

    The steak was VERY good and worth the trip. However, the sides were not very noteworthy. The music was loud, so it is not a place for a romantic occasion. The service was fine, but we had better on our stay at various hotels. They seemed to have several tables that could accommodate large parties, which was a plus.

    My husband loves steak, I love fish and Botero was the perfect option for both of us. We were in Las Vegas for the weekend, staying at the Wynn and attending La Reve after dinner. The atmosphere was quiet, despite being quite open and the service was excellent. I started with the crudo appetizer (the salmon and hamachi were the best) and then had an exquisite crispy Branzino. My husband had a tasty and generous Ceasar salad and a 16oz New York Strip, cooked perfectly medium rare (a little excessive portion...). Overall it was great food with great service. Would recommend it.

    Unique preparation of wedge salad - very good. Highly recommend beef short rib served over whipped potatoes, truffle Mac & cheese wonderful, and nothing special about the baked potato. Con - bone-in NY Strip full of fat and grizzle. Should have sent it back, but it was late in evening. Wine service was slow. Would give botero another try.

    Celebrating a 30th birthday we were greeted by friendly staff who acknowledged the event straight away. We were shown to our table by a waiter who also acknowledged the birthday! The wine list was fantastic, the food Devine! Ambience was great and service sensational. This is certainly not the cheapest place to eat BUT for a special occasion it is well worth the price and the food was simply superb. We would not hesitate to recommend Botero for anyone whether in a group or romantic occasion.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Botero this week and we'll definitely go back again. We found the food to be creative and delicious and our server was excellent. The sommelier was also incredibly helpful and friendly and made selecting a wine seem so easy. The one downside was the hostess. We had a 6:30 reservation which was rather early for this restaurant (which opens at 6pm) so there were a ton of open tables throughout the restaurant. She tried to seat us directly next to another couple which would be fine when the restaurant is crowded and noisy. We asked if we could be seated a few tables away, which she accommodated but clearly VERY reluctantly. It made us feel unwelcome. Happily the rest of the service was exceptional.

    We dined here on our trip to Las Vegas, and decided to splurge on the tasting menu. I loved the first two courses, and the dessert was heavenly, but the main courses felt slightly tasteless. The foie gras with the blueberry waffle was a baffling combination and, sorry to say, not very delicious. Dinner in Vegas was supposed to be one of the highlights of our trip, so obviously expectations were very high. For a special occasion, I would try somewhere else, but this is obviously still a very good restaurant, with a classic Vegas atmosphere to it.
