    We enjoyed our meal at Lavo very much, having a meatball and pasta. Wine list is not as extensive as other restaurants in Palazzo, but we were certainly able to find one we enjoyed. Will return

    We were celebrating a birthday and sadly the meal didnt go well. Our waitress seemed bothered to take our orders and it just got worse from there. They provided one small loaf of complimentary bread to our table of 5, which happens to be the same size the provide for a table of 2. We asked for another loaf and we didn't get it until we asked for the 4th time and were told it's $6 for them to butter and garlic it, but they could bring a plain loaf instead. They brought the bread after our meal concluded and we no longer had any dishes or utensils on our table. Such rude staff- no smiles, barely contained eyerolls. At that point we were done and just wanted to leave. So many strip restaurants to choose from we won't be back.

    We arrived at Lavo after watching a Cirque show in celebration of my husband's birthday. The show ran later than I expected but we called and the hostess assured us we'd be served if we got there by 11:50pm (they close for dinner at 12am on a Monday). We were seated on the patio overlooking the Vegas Strip and our waiter, Brendan, as well as the other staff, were extremely attentive and we never felt rushed. Since it was late we ordered cocktails, appetizers and 2 desserts. As for the appetizers, two of the highlights were the Kobe Stuffed Rice Balls and the ginormous Kobe Meatball with Whipped Ricotta. They were amazing! For dessert, we got the Bread Pudding and Oreo Zeppoles. Again, both were delicious! Can't wait to come back!

    All dishes were not tasty. Tuna was dry, lasagna was too spicy. Even the pasta was below average. Beets salad was felt like it came from a can... we returned the Tuna and got desert as a compensation. Small problem, the cake tasted like margarine that we ended us not touching it.

    The food and service were good. The music was too loud and woud have preferred a different type of background music instead of electronica. The restaurant was so incredibly cold that my party did not even enjoy our meals. We asked of they coud turn down the air but they said unfortunately the hotel controlled the temperature. We didn't even stay for dessert, we just wanted toget out of the cold and I barely enjoyedy meal because it was so cold.

    Been to Lavo three times always very good. Great food, wine and service. Went on a Friday night and it wasn't quiet but that's fine with us but if you want something romantic and quiet you may need to go earlier or not on a weekend evening. The bar picks up around 9 and is a great place to relax and have an after dinner drink. Always be sure to get the MEATBALL!!! My FAV!!!!

    My husband and I come to Las Vegas about twice a year. We've eaten at a ton of restaurants. Lavo was both of our favorite place to eat. The place is beautiful, the service is impeccable and the food was amazing. You MUST get a meatball appetizer, best thing we ate. My husband had the veal Parmesan and I had the chicken and mushroom ravioli. We typically like to try new restaurants each time we visit Vegas, but will def go back next time we are in town.

    So I decided to try Lavo again, because my first visit I wasn't in the best of moods. This time around.. EXCELLENT!! I started with the Zuchinni fries as an appetizer, the Caesar Salad was Crisp.. Dressing Perfect. I had the Pasta Carbonara for my main dish. (Amazing) I finished with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. I cannot wait to come back!! :)

    Brought our customers here for a business dinner. All well dressed. We were put in a corner table by the kitchen. Waiter serving us was in attentive . We had to wait extra long for everything. All understandable IF the restaurant was jam packed. It was only 25% occupied. Sorry if we are not models or celebrities. Didn't know that was a requirement to get good service

    The hostess brings us to our table and it looks like someone threw the table wear in a pile and left it there. They make us wait while they fixed it. Server seemed uninterested all togeher in being there. The food was truly delicious, so cheers to the chef. We get our pasta and every other bite is cold. I politely asked to have it warmed up, server took it the the manager, who did NOT come up and apologize for it, server brings it up asking "why don't you test it to see if it's warm enough to your standards." Bus boys kept moving and trying to take away our food mid bite, one ran into my chair so hard that it turned sideways and kept going. Took 40 min to get check and pay, our waiter disappeared. We had to stop a manager who could care les

    Great all around place for both style and substance. Lavoisier may draw you in due to his image and abundance of beautiful people and great location, but it will get you to come back based on his delicious food, selections and service. We come to Vegas often and make sure we dine at the best places while here as part of our experience. Lavoisier has joined the "must visit" rotation based on always having a positive experience regardless of our mood. This last time we had a late dinner with friends and split entrees to not over do it. No problem here. Our Spaghetti Carbonara was super with the basis being perfect pasta. Service is always exceptional. Atmosphere is great. Lots of groups celebrating and gorgeous people everywhere.

    The food has always been great at Lavo, but the crowd and the management of setting is terrible. They stuff you all together and loud obnoxious parties are piled on top of you. There were times none of us could hear or think!. We had a party of 7 and everyone of us could not believe how loud it was. It's too bad because it really is a great place. They need to spread out the tables and put sound suspension in the place. Our waitress was great and even she said it is too crazy in there to even think...

    Dined at Lavo on Sunday, 8/31, although a late night reservation, was disappointed with the quality of food that was delivered. I ordered the broiled lobster and spouse ordered the cheese ravioli. Both were delivered in a descent time, but both items were cold. I sent the lobster back, while my spouse ate his. After 15 minutes the same lobster was delivered back just after being placed back under the broiler. It was apparent that it was the same lobster, since I had removed one of the tiny tentacles. There was nothing special about the service or quality of food received, not even did a member from management to offer their apologies or anything. Not sure I'll be dining back at Lavo even though an invited casino guest at the hotel.

    Great table/nice server. Good food. One of the steaks came out well done instead of medium rare. Sent it back and were assured that a new steak would arrive quickly. It took an hour. Eventually her steak arrived and she said it was good but at that point we were all done eating and her fries were completely cold. They didn't charge us for the steak and gave us free dessert which was nice but we were there for almost 3 hours (and the bill was still $300). To make matters worse, I was wearing a white skirt and the chair I sat in had chocolate on it from a previous guest so my skirt was ruined. Overall Lavo has good food but I'm not sure I would eat here again.
