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"

    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.

    This was by far the best restaurant I've been to in years - and we dine out 3-4 nights a week! 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.

    Delicious and inventive menu. All small plates, which is fun for sharing. We didn't leave full and would have ordered more, but our server kept disappearing. 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.

    It was so dark we couldn't read our menus. Service was good, but the highly-touted sliders were a real disappointment - very dry, overcooked and no flavor. Beet salad was most memorable dish. Wine list good but very pricey. We were a large group seated at a long table which made for little conversation except for people next to and across from. We were overwhelmed by another very noisy party above us and could hardly hear ourselves talk.

    I've been to La Cave twice now, over 2 different Vegas trips. The food is outstanding and is all tapas-style, so you can customize the meal to be as heavy or as light as you want. Try the sliders and fries--amazing! The shrimp dish and the bacon wrapped dates are also my favorites. I always choose to sit outdoors as they have a great view of the manicured gardens and pool. Service was exceptional this past time as well; very friendly and accommodating staff. Will be on my list to recommend to others!

    We ordered the Ahi Tuna, Shrimp Ceviche, Gorgonzola Salad, Diver Sea Scallops, Certified Black Angus Sirloin Steak, and the Beef Filet all were good the Shrimp Ceviche and the Beef Filet were the best in my opinion. The service was lacking as it seemed she had better things to do then check on us and the seating was terrible. We were so close to people on both sides of us it was an uncomfortable dinning experience. Overall I would rate my experience as a B- I'm not sure I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

    Wanted an upscale lunch served between 3-5 and the menu here (same for lunch & dinner) fit the bill. Small plate to share from lighter fare to full on beef and lamb...all delicious. Have dined here 4 times before, for lunch, pre-show dinners and Sunday brunch and thoroughly enjoyed food every time. Service had been fair at best on first three visits but the food kept us coming back. I must admit however service at brunch recently and that provided by Bryson and the food runners on this day was absolutely great. You can eat light and quickly or enjoy a lengthier time, food comes relatively quicky so enjoy a few plates, then a few more(savor the flavors) and a few more...try to save room for dessert.

    La Cave is an excellent place to go with a group for tapas and drinks. The atmosphere is comfortable and very cozy. Food is delicious and sharing many small plates made for a unique and highly varied meal. The wine list is extensive though the fantastic selection leans more towards bottles then per glass. The service was impeccable. I will definitely be going back.
