    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 can only speak for the pre fix menu that my party received as part of a package. The choices were slim, the food was just very average. So Many other places to choose from. SW steak house at the Wynn for example!! I would not return, nor would I recommend.

    We had guests in from out of town. Because of the special pre fixe lunch, we were able to eat 3 dishes for a very low price. Everything was cooked perfectly, seasoned exceptionally well, and the pacing of the meal was just right. This is a great place for couples to enjoy a romantic meal.

    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 $.

    In our experience, generally over-rated for a weeknight ay 7:00PM. Roasted chicken and Beef Duo were our entrée choices. Both were good with solid presentation. Sauce with the Roasted chicken was a bit overwhelming with a heavy, almost caramel consistency. We were sat close to the front entrance near the casino floor which is a shame--the noise overflow is grating and I wish they had "windows" to the casino floor that would at least allow for some overflow noise reduction. Service was disappointing at this price point. Simple things like refilling water, lack of menu knowledge, back servers that don't clear a table, lack of dessert offerings, and a simple lack of attention were evident throughout the dinner.

I had the classic coq au vin and it was fork tender, in a lovely sauce with carrots and mushrooms. Breads nothing special and cold. Butter from Vermont lovely.

    food does not compare to other DB restaurants, shocked by the difference in quality. the worst part of the experience is the service and location. since it is open to the casino, all you hear and see is casino activity and unfortunately smell cigar and cigarette smoke. we asked to be moved towards the back of the resturant and they said no, that all tables are reserved but by the end of our dinner the entire section was still vacant. service very non engaging and spotty, had to refill our wine glasses ourselves, had to ask for more bread and they brought 2 small pieces, etc.

    We ate at DB Brasserie, having just had a fabulous meal at Maison Boulud in Montreal a few weeks ago. We had high hopes. While most of the dishes were okay, I ordered the French Onion Soup. It was inedible! There must have been an entire carton of salt in my bowl. I complained and the response was something like "somebody else said it was too salty, too." Then fix it! They did remove the soup from the bill, but that left me with a slice of "just okay" pate for dinner. I hope the menu can be fixed. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was very good. Location is fun -- you can look out at the casino, but it is not too loud.

    Hit this restaurant up for dinner after a big lunch, so I wasn't expecting to eat much. Wow. Big mistake! Everything I had was incredible. I wish I would have had room for more! Great list of appetizers, and the wine list looked incredible. I was just going to have one glass of wine, so I went with the waiters rec. very solid. He recommended a merlot that is probably the best wine I've tasted in years! I went with the duck, and it was perfect. Great restaurant, and I will definitely be back.

    I had just recently made a trip to NYC and went to Bar Boulud, which was a sore disappointment. So when I found out that Daniel Boulud was opening a new restaurant in Vegas, I wasn't too excited to try it out. But one of my friends had just gone to DB Brasserie the week before and said it was a redeeming experience. I couldn't agree more! The service was pretty flawless, all of the food was excellent. We tried the pate, the foie gras, burrata salad, and a seafood pasta topped with bottarga that was so fragrant and decadent I had to take a moment. It was all reseaonably priced, but we are sad that we missed their special prix fix menu that is available from 5-7pm and they also have a happy hour menu that I would want to try next time.

    After reading the Las Vegas press reviews, you'd think this restaurant was the best thing to happen to Vegas in a long time. Sadly, it's not nearly as good as the reviews say. The Tarte Flambee was decent, but lacked punch. The Roast Chicken was not as good as you can find elsewhere on the Strip, and the Pommes Lyonnaise were a fail - they tasted like sugar had been dumped into them. And does "parsley salad" mean a bunch of parsley leaves dumped on the plate? Sitting in the room the place feels like you are sitting in a garage looking out of four large garage doors. Still, the caesar salad was excellent, and the staff were friendly. The food needs work to match up to Bouchon, Comme Ca, etc.
