    My first time in Vegas and I'm a huge Top Chef fan, so I had to try Craft. So amazing. I love food and everything we ate was delicious. The lobster bisque soup was so light and full of flavor. The mushrooms, potatoes and cauliflower were all so hot and perfectly cooked and the steak was cooked perfectly and had amazing flavor. I look forward to eating here again the next time I come to Vegas!

    We had the Wagyu surf and turf tasting menu and it was incredible. Service by Kevin and Olga was warm and professional. This was an over the top dining experience and expensive but we would do it again once we came out of our food coma. We went back to the bar a second night just for the Wagyu tartare.

    It started out great, but when I received my steak it was med. instead of well done. We couldn't find either waiter so stopped someone and she brought over the manager. He took the steak and brought it back about 5 mins. later still looking the same. Again he offered to take it back and I said forget it ( at this point my husband was done with his meal) so they took it off my bill. We still had not seen either of our waiters until it was time to ask if we wanted desert. If it wasn't for the manager we would not have received any help at all. Again the service was not good and the food was not of the quality one would expect for the price. I recommend going to NYNY to Gallaghers Steakhouse much better service and food!

    Very disappointed with quality, service and cost. While we knew going in this was an expensive restaurant we thought we'd try it again (had bad experience once before) and we were celebrating a birthday which they acknowledged when we checked in. Steaks were over cooked, lobster had no flavor even the salad was a mess. Not one person acknowledged the birthday at our table even when I prompted them. Very disappointing and won't go back. $300 for 2 people is way over the top.

    Our dinner was amazing. We got the domestic waygu tasting menu it came with 4 apps, two cuts of meat, 4 sides and 4 desserts. My only complaint is that I wish someone told us how much food we would receive .. It was soo much that we could have split it with our two friends dining with us

    Had the domestic Waygu tasting. They list the tasting as three courses, but it's a little misleading. The salad course consisted of four dishes; the main course consisted of three different steaks and three sides; the dessert course had five separate dishes. The chance to taste three different steaks (flat iron, rib, and filet) perfectly prepared side by side was very special.

    Craft Steak was recommended to us and touted as the best steak ever, by our son. He did not steer us wrong. Starting with the friendly service from the hostess desk to the most attentive wait staff, our dinner was perfect. I can't say enough about the food. We knew we wanted to try the Wagyu steaks and we let our waiter suggest our selections for a four course meal. It couldn't have been put together any better! We had one rib eye and one tenderloin served in hot casserole dishes and sliced to share, sides of mashed potatoes, asparagus and the best mushrooms I've ever had. But the steaks were truly the stars and I can't say enough about their perfection. Try Craft Steak, you won't be disappointed.

    Food was delicious. Service was great. Only thing I'd say is we felt as if we couldn't order items except what the server suggested which was the "Chef's Choice", a more expensive option. Added to this with dinner being expensive like this, we were approached by a lady to take photos in the restaurant. She came back with an album or two with about 6-8 photos in them and said they'd cost us $195. What would be nice here is if the restaurant took 1 photo as a souvenir and gave it to the customers as dinner is costing so much anyway that 1 photo wouldn't break the bank. Even if it was $50 for the photos I'd have said ya, but nearly $200 for 6-8 photos? Felt they were just looking for as much money as possible.

    First let me say the food was delicious. The service was impeccable up until our food was brought out. Then no one came over to check on us again until the check came. Not sure if they we understaffed or what, but for the price of the food we purchased, they should have catered to our every need, which is how it is at certain other high end restaurants (Gordon Ramsay Steak). And they serve family style, which is fine, but I removed my Waygu steak from the pan which had the sauce/juices and before I knew what happened the busser swiped t away with all that goodness and didn't even ask. I also didn't get a chance to ask for it back because we got ignored....not cool Tom Colicchio....not cool.

    Craft Steak provides truly elegant service in a relaxed atmosphere for a memorable evening. Our party of 4 chose the Domestic Wagyu Surf & Turf sharing everything through out the evening. The Sommelier helped narrow our wine choices down from an overwhelming 1700 possibilities to a perfect pair of bottles within our budget that accented our dinner selections. The flavors, chemistry, and portions delivered over 3 hours continued to unveil the art of master craftsman with each progressive course. Taking the time to thoughtfully review the menu and extensive wine list before arriving to dine will serve you well. Dress is casual elegant.

    My husband and I travel from Chicago to visit Craftsteak every year since 2006, and there is a very good reason. It's the best dining experience we've ever had, time and time again. The food is executed impeccably, creatively, and deliciously. Sometimes, if we can manage to stay a day or two longer in Vegas, we will go to Craftsteak again. We highly recommend the Chef Specials. There is so much food and such a variety, we always come away happily full with such a wonderful culinary experience.

    Great Vegas location, right in the middle of all the restaurant and people watch at the MGM. The food was excellent, best steak I have ever, and the service was very good. Only drawback was we were seated in the bar, instead of the dining room - strange for two ladies in their 60's and 70's - and it was so noisy it did distract from our meal. But otherwise, excellent food and a good experience.

    This was our 3rd visit to Craftsteak and like the other visits it was outstanding. My wife & I both had the bone-in ribeye and it was cooked to perfection and was so favorable. The portion was overwhelming and we both had a doggie bag to take back to our hotel. Our sommelier assured our wine was free of any cork and sentiment and made sure the taste was proper. Our service was very good from the moment we walked in. There are many excellent steak houses in Las Vegas, some you pay more some you pay less, but for my money Craftsteak is the best in Las Vegas.

    Before ordering I told my waiter that I am allergic to nuts and fruits. He assured me that he had it written down and he will notify ALL chefs! With that in mind my boyfriend and I ordered the Domestic Wagyu chef's selection. The first two courses were not bad, everything went downhill when dessert hit the table. EVERY SINGLE DESSERT HAD NUTS AND FRUITS! They apologized and told me they will make me something else. 45 MINUTES LATER they come back saying the chef cannot help. Instead I was offered a lousy scoop of ice cream which I REFUSED. He said "You Paid for it" might as well eat something. Unacceptable, my dinner was $400, I expected better service! If I would have known I wouldn't have chosen the Chef's Selection!

    I am usually skeptical about restaurants in Vegas. Food is mediocre, full of salt, tries to hard to be trendy, and the service is horrible due to the fact that most servers know they'll never see you again. Craftsteak is the exception. Kevin, our AMAZING server, was friendly, funny, was honest on his recommendations, and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. The Wagyu beef...WOW. Get the Skirt Steak. Trust me. Probably one of the best steaks I've ever had! In a land of a million restaurants, this is the one and only you need to try!

    I've taken numerous clients here for business dinners and I have never had a complaint. It's run well, great wine selection, and is lit beautifully. It ticks every box for a great dinner in Las Vegas. But, the food is the most outstanding part of the experience. The menu, published daily, is always great. You won't be let down.

    While on a recent trip to Vegas, a friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner one evening and Craftsteak did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, the atmosphere was classy and romantic, and the food outstanding! I'd have to say, the lobster bisque was the highlight of my meal - certainly one of the best I've ever had. I will definitely be recommending Craftsteak to friends and family!

    We have dinned at Craftsteak multiple of times, usually due to attending a concert or event at the MGM Garden Arena. The food is quite good, the service was even better. If you are in the MGM then I would recommend dinning here. However, I would not go out of my way to dine at Craftsteak as there are many other Amazing Steakhouse on the strip such as CUT in the Palazzo, Gordon Ramsay Steak in the Paris Casino, or SW Steakhouse in the Wynn are all better options in my opinion.

    Craftsteak has always been one of my most favorite restaurants to come visit in Vegas. I have to say the food is still decent but not as fantastic as it used to be. I had the lobster bisque which was good and the porterhouse which had very good flavor but not no real WOW factor. The two sides we ordered were ok but not memorable. Now for the service level, things have changed here. There is suppose to be 2 to 3 people waiting on each table but almost all of them were non existent. In fact they did not start paying attention to us until I mentioned I was going to rip them on open table for such bad service. I am sad to say I won't be back, this was my favorite place but it's time to move on.....

    On our last night at MGM, 4 of us went back to Craftsteak. We ordered 1) surf and turf with lobster 2) surf and turf with scallops 3) roasted chicken 4) Steak - side dishes were - Scalloped potatoes, risotto and mixed mushrooms. Wine and before dinner drinks. I would have to say, all the food was very good. Did not understand the cherry tomatoes in the risotto, but still good. What makes a meal great is not the food, but the whole client experience which includes the waiters. It's this attitude about them, that doesn't sit right with me. Our waiter took our order, not in a friendly way. Don't get me wrong, he was not rude, sent the wine server to bring us our bills and never said thank you when we left. Not ompressed.
