Diner Reviews
  • "We had lunch and the place was very empty which allowed us to have good and quick service. The food was well prepared, fresh and well presented. Some of the plates had very small portions but in general it met our expectations. We have been eating tapas all our lives and the place met our expectations."

  • "Great food. Great service. But expensive. Scallops and oxtail are the best"

  • "Wonderful lunch experience. Excellent service - just perfect. Had the Lobster Gazpacho, Gambas and the Beef and Cheese. Wow, they were all extraordinary. I had to have bread so that none of the sauce for the Gambas went to waste. Highly recommend."

  • "Pre-fixe/pre-theater meal was an awesome deal with great food! We had a party of five, went with this deal, then added extra tapas. Delish sorbets - what a treat."

  • "The risotto was epic and the star of the show. All of the tapas are solid. We had a little disappointment with the seafood paella maybe because the risotto was so good!"

  • "We chose 10 tapas to share between 4 people. This was more than enough food for dinner. Each dish was perfectly paired and balanced. The chicken skewers were my favorite. I rarely opt for chicken in a restaurant, but these were perfectly and beautifully prepared. The sirloin tapas and the grilled scallops were also outstandingly good. The only disappointment was the creamy mushroom risotto. The texture and taste just didn't fit with what I was looking for. I mentioned to our waiter that everything was perfect, but we just didn't care for the risotto as much. I would have given this restaurant 4 stars, but the waiter chose not to charge us for the risotto because he had wanted us to have a perfect experience. It was. Thank you!"

  • "Brought some out-of-town friends, and they were just as thrilled as we always are! Squid ink black rice is so good ... I wish they'd add it as a paella. Octopus and meats were phenomenal, and even the almonds were fragrant and tasty!"

  • "We made reservation within less than 2 hours from arriving time. The table was waiting for us, we got seated right the way, our service started immediatly, professional & friendly staff. Perhaps some of the reviews i saw before going there it is right and food is a bit overrated versus taste and quality, but this is Vegas and you will always pay above avarage for anything you do or eat. So, i have to say that we had fun, could hear each other in the table, but yes, noise level is high.. if you are above your 60's looking for a quite dinner experience this is defenetely not your place. Sorry."

  • "As a Belgian, I really appreciate good food. Though, this is hard to find in Las Vegas. However, this tapas restaurant is an exception. The tapas are all teasting great and it's always fun that you can eat bit of many different plates. The food is also affordable!"

  • "We struck up a conversation with a random person at the Cosmopolitan who raved about this place so we decided to give it a try after a show in the hotel. My thanks to this good Samaritan! Walking into the restaurant we were struck with the very cool decor within the very cool Aria. The service was very attentive and the food was outstanding and very original. Since it's mostly tapas, it is easy to sample a number of dishes all of which were unique and excellent. Since Julian Serrano is well known, we had high expectations which were exceeded by our experience. While not cheap, compared to other high end Vegas dining, this had and outstanding price to value ratio. We will be back next trip to Vegas!"

  • "This is one of the best restaurants we have been to in Las Vegas. We went during happy hour (M-R 4-5:30) because of our early show. The waitstaff was inviting, friendly and knowledgeable. I had the white sangria to start, refreshing, light and fruity. My wife had the sparkling sangria, also delicious and refreshing. In all we had the ahi tuna with deconstructed raspberry, bacon wrapped figs stuffed with goat cheese, the Spanish chorizo and mash potatoes and the sliders. The best plate we ate was the bacon wrapped figs, the creaminess of the cheese, the sweetness of the figs and the smoky, meaty goodness of bacon all mixing together into a great mouthful of wonderful food. Service was fantastic."

  • "Impressed with the Menu, I've been wanting to try some good Spanish cured meats, they have Pata Negra on their menu! WOW, got some cheese platter and chiles, from Spain, they were Delicious. Sangria was very tasty, fresh, and the Paella was Amazing too. I would go back over and over and over again. Excellent service and food and ambiance were all part of an amazing night. Highly Recommended!!"

  • "First time dining at a Julian Serrano restaurant, and would go back in a heartbeat! Food service and ambience was top-notch. Incredibly kind staff (we had a toddler with us and they were extremely sweet about it), and the flavors were just so spot-on. We were extremely impressed!"

  • "I am trying to not be overly negative, but we ordered about 8 Tapas for the table, and only one was what I would call good. The others were poor to fair. Strange flavors, and overall quality was lacking. We have dined in many tapas restaurants across the country, and this was at the bottom of the list. We went to Nobu and Carnevino as well on the trip, all booked thru Open Table. We were celebrating a 40th birthday, and this was the only restaurant that did not take my request for a more private table not in the middle into consideration, and they also did not acknowledge the birthday. Overall the service and quality of the food was not what I was expecting. Very dissapointed, and we will not go back."

  • "The hardest part, when going over the menu was that we couldn't try everything. Luckily, with 5 of us, we were able to try a lot of items, since we were sharing them. The flavors were phenomenal and presentation was great too. Additionally, the waitstaff was great, offering excellent advice when we needed it, without being overbearing. At times, our waiter, Pedro, offered some great hints that really enhanced our experience. Complementing the great menu is an impressive wine list that is, as one would expect (and hope) very heavy on Spanish wines that complement the menu wonderfully."

  • "We were celebrating my Mom's 61st birthday - we had a group of 7 and we all agreed, this place was awesome. Such an array of options to choose from. Everything we tried was delicious - from the dates, to the peppers, to the chicken, the shrimp fideo...we could go on and on. The restaurant is gorgeous and the perfect place for any celebration or just a fabulous dining experience."

  • "Good food, decently priced for vegas. it's in an open area in a foyer though so it's LOUD and not private at all."

  • "I love food from Spain and it was a marvelous experience to find a place with excellent spanish food in Las Vegas. Rich flavor in a very energetic environment. Highly recommendable."

  • "This place seemed promising. Great Chef. Tapas. I mean sounds good right? It was terrible. Service was terrible, it was so loud you could not talk to the person sitting directly in front of you. Food was good at best but for 20$/tapa I want a good overall experience and this was not it. Not worth the $$ and not worth the time. Go to Firefly, right off the strip and WAY Better."

  • "enjoyed the tapas/small plate service and food at Serrano. Only issue was the plates came out a bit to fast. We would not have finished one plate and the next was coming. Not so much time to enjoy/discuss and the next plate or two came out. Also, a small table for two and there isn't much space to make room for the fast arriving plates."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "There was lots to choose from for both meat eaters and vegetarians at this vibrant, packed tapas restaurant. Our favorites were the goat cheese salad (the romesco dressing was OOC), the prosciutto wrapped dates, and the mixed paella. We found a great bottle of white wine for 40 dollars a bottle as well. So, while we ate a ton and drank a decent amount, we didn't break the bank. It wasn't cheap either."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The service was slow. As for seating, we got stuck in a back corner 2-top table while other couples were seated at some 4- tops. The only good thing was the Ox tail tapa. We would not go back even if it was free."

  • "We have been to Julian Serrano more than a dozen times. The recent additions to the tapas menu and some new presentations were remarkable. The lobster gazpacho is outstanding and the serrano ham with the thinner cut and additional amounts of the garlic sauce was a great improvement on near perfection. The lobster salad is generous in portion and delicious. Wine list, while not extensive, is favorably priced for such a fine restaurant. We stay in Aria in Las Vegas and always dine at Julian at least once per trip. This traditional shall continue."

  • "I booked Julian serrano's hoping my party of 11 peers would like it due to its ratings and varied menu. Everyone loved what they ordered and was a fun way to dine to see and talk about what everyone ordered. Our waiter Donovan was amazing!"

  • "My only complaint is that the octopus was like chewing on the sole of my sneakers and needed a nice garlicky aioli to finish the flavor. I have had much more tender. Everything els, including paella was excellent. Service was great. I will go back, just not for the octopus. B&B has the best."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Wild mushroom soup, chicken croquetas, and lobster salad were tasty. Shrimp and octopus were just OK. Service was impersonal, disengaged and hurried. You are seated on top of each other in a loud, brightly lit environment. We won't go back."

  • "Nice attractive space. Waiter was nice but not very polished. Some fo the dishes were good but not spectacular. Raspberry tuna and the anchovie/pepper crostini were the best out of the 10 or so we ordered. Some were underseasoned or lacked flavor (roasted peppers, bomba meatball). Valencia paella was a bit greasy and salty. Decent meal but with so many options in Las Vegas, there's better out there."

Service was fantastic. Never needed to ask for anything. We were well taken care of by Will and Jonathon. We had such a great time! Can't wait to come back!"
