A word from La Cave - Wynn Las Vegas
Don't call it a wine bar. At least proprietor Michael Morton, of the famous Morton restaurant family, prefers not to describe his unique La Cave concept in such limited terms. With its tempting small plates menu, stylish surroundings and well rounded beer and spirits selection, La Cave is about more than simply good wine. This cozy Wynn hideaway is a wonderland of coved ceilings, wrought iron, polished woods and glass panels. Chef Bill DeMarco, a protégé of chef Charlie Palmer, crafts a beguiling menu of flatbreads, tapas-like small plates, grilled meats and platters of charcuterie and gourmet cheese - each meant to be a perfect pairing to one of La Cave's many wines. With its sexy and fun vibe, this cave devoted to vino-pleasures comes replete with an outdoor dining terrace overlooking landscaped gardens and pools. Morton sums it up best, "I want people to leave feeling as though they just went to the best dinner party. Great food, great wine, great music, great friends"

    We were extremely excited to try La Cave at the Wynn Hotel during our stay in Vegas, however we were brutally disappointed in the food and even more so in the service. We arrived on time for our reservation and were asked to wait for just a few minutes. After 10-15 minutes we were seated at a table close to the bar. The dining area was dimly lit and the noise level with extremely loud and there was a significant draft that made the environment quite cold. We were able to get food fairly quickly but the flavor of the different entrees was somewhat bland. We each ordered drinks and one of our party members never received her drink even after the staff was asked about it two different times. The best part of the evening was the dessert!

    Le Cave has the best French onion soup I have ever had. The portions arent big but neither are the prices in comparison to other Vegas restaurants. The flat breads, especially the filet-blue cheese, will satisfy even the heartiest appetite. Scallops are prepared perfectly, not over cooked but seared just right.

  • Nice Little Place....

    Dined on 10/12/2014
    This is a nice little place for an appetizer and a bottle of wine. The dishes are all in very small portions (3 - 6 bites each) so if you are going for a full meal, you may have to spend quite a lot. We each ordered 2 items from the menu and all of us were still hungry. Nice atmosphere though - and for the most part, the food was delicious.

    I had previously had dinner at La Cave and was looking forward to trying Sunday brunch. It didn't disappoint. The service is butler style with lots of small plates delivered to your table. They did initially come too quickly for us, but slowed down after we asked them to. We enjoyed all of the dishes, with the exception of the mushroom grits (we had never tried grits before and thought they had a very odd texture). I'm not sure how often the items change but I loved the fact that there was no fish or seafood (very unusual for a US brunch) meaning that I was able to try everything. At $48 each plus tax this brunch is a real bargain.

    The atmosphere at La Cave suits its name well - you truly feel as though you may have stepped into a dimly-lit cave the way it is set back from the main area of the Wynn hotel and casino - all this is offset though by the vast selection of wine and sprits that adorn the back wall of the restaurant. Although portions are on the smaller side, they certainly do not lack bold and delicious flavors. A perfect spot for late night tapas and drinks!

    Food was fair but very overpriced. The wine list was interesting but overpriced as well ($35 for four small tastes of wine???). It's hard to find good wine in Vegas so at least this place tried to make an attempt, but the food was so expensive for very little quantity. Pretty disappointing overall. They should have had a wine and food pairing flight available, not sure why they didn't.

    The portions are incredibly small. The food is decent, but you have to order extra portions, which causes the bill to rise fast. And paying $27 for a glass of very average wine was absurd! So beware. Lots of better choices at the Wynn I would suspect.

    Pricing of food at La Cave is fine but if you like to have a few cocktails or wine with your dinner, be prepared to pay! The prices of wine are especially high. The lowest price for a bottle of white wine was $75! A glass of Chardonnay was $21. A little deceiving when dining "casual".

    I have been here before - twice - and was so happy to take my sister there on our recent visit. Imagine how I feel knowing that my recommendation was a bust and she was disappointed too. Our server forgot about us several times and knew nothing about the menu or wines. We were seated at a tiny table (despite there being several large tables open all night) - so there was no room for anything. They brought stuff out and forced it onto us, so that it was really uncomfortable to eat with so much crammed onto us. We asked them to slow the dishes down so that we could eat and clear some room - but they didn't listen. The wines were not good choices and I regret ordering the flights. I won't be back.

    La Cave is an oasis of quiet in a large hotel/casino, Wynn, in Las Vegas. They serve small portions to be shared. Our server explained our options clearly and suggested for the two of us that we order four of the small portions or three, if one of the servings was flatbread. We chose Beef Filet Crostini with blue cheese and truffle cream, which was beyond outstanding. We also chose Moroccan Chicken Skewers with pear chutney, tzatziki and pita. Again this dish was outstanding. Finally, we chose a Fontina flatbread featuring Nueske's bacon and poached quail eggs. The three made a fine dinner and left us well satisfied.

Really great server (Lisa) - competent, quick, alert, recommendations were right on, and she seemed like a genuinely nice person. Service was great; they wouldn't leave a dish or crumb sit. Food was DELICIOUS; and the desserts were all spot on wonderful! Really nicest gem found in Vegas - highly recommend this one.

We sat outside, so maybe that's why we didn't get attention? She was very pleasant and friendly when we did see her though. Overall, it was tasty and I would dine here again.

    Over all experience was good. Service, ambiance and wine list were very good. A little expensive for Tapas. My wife and I ordered 5 plates: lump crab cups, bacon wrapped dates, Moroccan chicken skewers, scallops and duck breast. All portions were very small even for Tapas. The duck was cold and tough. I also have a real issue when a supposedly higher end restaurant give you milk instead of cream for their coffee! All that being said, if you are looking for a light dinner with a good wine selection you might want to give it a try.

    The server did warn us that there was no guarantee what food would come in what order from the kitchen, but it was surprising that all dishes seemed to arrive simultaneously. There was barely room on the table for it all. We felt rushed to eat so we could taste all the dishes warm. The food was fabulous. However, if we go back, we will pace our ordering so that we don't get swamped with all the dishes at once.

    The food was good, the wine flights really fun. My only complaint would have been the way they served us. We were at a small table for two. We each ordered a wine flight & were each given a wooden tray with 4 small wine glasses. The table also had a water glass for each of us, and small square plates for us to use. As suggested, we ordered 3 plates each. The first plate came, then a second. Then every single plate we ordered was delivered to us - BEFORE any plates were ever removed! Nowhere to put anything, we felt rushed. It was ridiculous! Typically a tapas restaurant serves only a couple plates at any time. Very poorly managed service. Yet the food was good & the wine was lovely so I would return but be clear about timing of dishes!

    High end Vegas food experience with a cozy exclusive feel. Love how it's got a bit of tucked in feeling but with great views and great outdoor seating option, of course this will only work when the weather is cooperating. Food was fantastic - every small plate was packed with lots of flavor and we were lucky enough to have the chef recommend a few amazing ones; the sea bass, pork chops and moroccan chicken were great! Could have sat and ate all night long if I had room enough in my stomach!

    The restaurant is very nice and energetic, but it is extremely dark. The food was average and the portions extremely small for the prices charged. My wife and I have been to almost every restaurant at Wynn/Encore and most of them, especially Sinatra's and SW, are outstanding and we don't mind paying the overpriced casino rates for excellent food, but La Cave is average at best and for the prices charged it is a terrible value.
