    The service was SLOW, the food was just OK, and the ambiance was nothing special. Vegas restaurants just dont seem to be as good as they were a couple of years ago. There are still a few gems, but this is not one of them. The manager coming over after we received our check, and paid to say "I took a few items off your check, becuase we were so slow" didn't make it any better. Where was she while the dinner was being ruined? Take note management, The price wasn't what mattered the experience is.

    When we entered the restaurant we were greeted and seated immediately. After that though, it was downhill. The food was mediocre and the service was very poor. It took us 20 minutes to get drinks and bread. When we talked to the manager, he did not even apologize. I would not go back again.

    1. Music terrible. Loud boom-boom music. Staff explained it was designed to give the restaurant an edgy feel. It did - I nearly went over the edge with annoyance 2. After asking waiter to allow for a break between appetiser and main course (which he arranged) our main meal arrived within a couple of seconds of appetiser plate clearance. Great apology and offer to take the meals back. Explanation was that the chef made a mistake - he got carried away.

    Excellent wine list and service. Apart from a thin-crust onion/bacon/cheese tart in which the cheese overwhelmed the other flavors (the opposite of what was expected), the food was superb: the pate with large mushrooms was wonderful, a slight liverwurst taste though mild and multi-flavored; the crisped duck confit retained moistness and tenderness while the vegetables absorbed the fact; the desert, a chocolate echelle, was delicious with hazelnut ice cream on the side, lots of cholocaty frosting, and light cake. Absolutely will return.

    The entire dinner was an experience. The food was outstanding and of the best quality possible. The fried calamari was so soft, i could swear they massaged the squid for hours, barely chewy, air-light fried and delicious sauce. The duck confit was salty, but moist and tasty, soft, what a healthy ducky. The halibut was so soft and fresh, it flaked slices of butter flesh. The cocktails (Melon Mule) were a little weak but very good nonetheless. This place is guaranteed to surprise even the most experienced foodies. I know I was.

    Prix Fixe menu with premium wine paring was excellent. I was leary about the skirt steak but it was excellent, very tender with an intense sauce that was absolutely delicious. The wait help was overly ambitious in clearing the tables that made us feel rushed. A must try for foodies.

    Quite average in all respects. Way too much price to value. The squid salad was priced for a lot more than it delivered. Was really a bit of chopped cuttlefish on top of a bed of frizzee.

    We ate here for lunch. We had the prix-fix lunch which was a good value at $32. I had the salmon rillete, which had a creamy, slightly smoked flavor and was quite good. I then got the trout, which was well cooked, but a bit salty. I would choose a different option next time. For Dessert, I ordered the frangipane tart. Best dessert I've had in Vegas. I highly recommend it for its fruity, creamy goodness.

    I was excited to finally try a Daniel Boules restaurant. Had come in to visit my best friend and his wife with my brother, moderately high expectations. We ordered an order of oyster and the foie gras terrine which were delicious. I order the short rib dish which was just okay. Cooked perfectly but seemed pretty season less. My brother and friend ordered the duck confit, which was very tasty but also very salty. His wife ordered the scallops which was prepared well. For dessert we got Madelines and coffee to finish the meal. Overall outside of the outstanding service, I was a little let down by the meal but would definitely come back.

    We had lunch here, service was good, food quality was high, food taste was not there, nor thought in useful plating. I was looking forward to eating at DB, we ordered the three course which is a great value when reading. However, the taste of the dishes were bland, and it wasn't something that salt or pepper could fix. The salmon rilettes - while visually appealing, did not have a large enough crouton or cracker for the amount of salmon, either reduced the salmon size or give a larger piece of bread. That seemed to be the theme of the restaurant, more style over substance. What happen to just plain great food?

    Came for dinner to celebrate birthday. Menu has changed quite a bit in the few months since opening So the duo of beef I wanted was no longer available although the Tunisian lamb was great alternative. Appetisers were all good as was the steak frites Cooked perfectly. Desserts were a Let down. Profiteroles overly hard Although nice gelato filling and chocolate sauce. The sundae was tasteless. Overall the food Was good but nothing blew us away (especially for the amount charged) and they need to sort out the music. Soft rock and pop blaring seems out of place for a French brasserie.

    We went during restaurant week so the value was excellent. The setting is made to resemble a french bistro/brasserie and the spacing between tables enabled us to have an opportunity to converse easily. The food was the treat! Perfectly prepared and presented. We'll be back.

    Everything you expect in a Daniel Boulud restaurant, except that this one gave us service at a 100 mph. We came to this restaurant during Three Squares week for lunch. The noise level is noticeable because the reception area opens up to the casino floor. The food was very good, with the portions being generous. Our service, however, was very rushed. Felt like they were trying to close early because they had to be somewhere else. In fact, when the waiter served the main course, he began describing the dish about 5 feet from the table while attempting to utilized John Moschitta's speed talking technique (Fed Ex fast talker). He literally tossed my plate on the table as he walked by. Otherwise, would recommend.

    was excited to try a Daniel Boulud rest. but left disappointed; we went to celebrate my mom's bday and despite noting when I made the reservation and the waiter verifying, they did nothing to assist with the celebration (no cake or dessert and put us at a table at the entrance where we were basically looking at slots all meal when the rest of the restaurant was empty). food was mediocre at best. we started with 2 orders of the cold seafood tower and at $75/each, it was nothing more than a dozen oysters with 2 shrimps, 1 king crab leg and 1/2 lobster tail (will never recommend anyone to go there for this on the strip as Joe's or Mastro's does a much better job and you get your monies worth). $90 rib-eye was OK but nothing to go back for.

    I was appalled with this restaurant! We had reservations here for a late dinner and both selected sea bass. Turns out they only had 1 left. No big deal. We looked at the menu again and chose the short ribs, and we could share. The waiter said they were out of short ribs, as well. We settled on filet. Then, the manager came over and said they had to remake the sea bass for another table, and we needed to select yet another item from the menu. At this point, I would have expected an entree on the house. That suggestion was never made. Our food then took over 1 1/2 hrs. Only when the waiter overheard me saying there was no way I was going to give him a good tip, did he offer us a comp glass of wine. But, he asked us not to tell his boss.

    i made a reservation using Open Table which was quick and easy as always. Then the next morning i received a voice mail from the restaurant, DB Brasserie, informing me that I had to call them to confirm my reservation. Not only was this an unnecessary annoyance, but what is the point of booking a table using Open Table if I have to call the restaurant anyway to confirm. For this reason, as well as the poor service, I will not be returning to DB Brasserie

    I expected more from this brasserie, the main issue was the slow service;20 minutes before order being taken, 45 minutes before appetisers were delivered and it wasn't a busy evening. Food was ok but a two course meal took 2 hours, far too long. It wasn't worth the $.
