    My wife & I were thinking dinner would be about a quick 1 hour.... 7:15pm reservations & left Lupo at 9:15pm Due slow & confusing service dinner took 2 hrs. Kept asking over & over for the same & still got the wrong everything Monday 8-11 was not (15%) crowded --- plenty of servers but they all seemed confused Hard to hear out on the patio area due to the spill over from a extremely loud lounge band at a distance of 150 ft. My wife & I always enjoyed Lupo... however we'll not be returning to this restaurant

    Lupo at Mandalay Bay is one of our favorites and again we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, service outstanding and we had the best Veal Marsala ever. I highly recommend Lupo. We've been going there since they opened and have never had a bad experience!

    Hostess staff ruined the experience. We had a 6pm reservation for 2 people. We checked in at 552pm and was told we could not check in until 6. We came back at 5:58 and they still wouldn't check us in. At 6pm we were seated. Lots of open tables. Hostess sat us in the first table right at the entrance where everyone coming in would pass. Empty restaurant, we made a reservation and we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant. We love Wolfgang Puck restaurants but will never go back to Lupo.

    The food and service at Lupo was nothing short of fabulous. We were there for my daughter's 21st birthday. I had the, hands down, best gnochhi I have ever eaten and the lasagna was so smooth and delicious that the tiny eaters at our table couldn't get enough. Our waiter Brandon was a doll and helped to make it a special dinner.

    Attending a convention as an exhibitor is a grueling task. So when the show is over for the day you'd like something conveniently located. Lupo was just the ticket. We were a small group of three with two food allergies. Lupo was very accommodating and made special versions of their signature dishes. The food was delicious and the wait staff could not be more friendly, understanding and accommodating. I would recommend Lupo to anyone in the Mandalay Bay or anywhere else in Vegas.

    Four of us dined at lupo's and we all found the food disappointing. The pasta dishes were nothing special and the lobster risotto was fairly flavorless. One of our party had dessert which was good. But with all the great restaurants in Vegas, I would not recommend Lupo's

    I was expecting at least some bread before the meal. but, the waitress said they would bring it after we ordered. We each ordered a Caesar salad, She didn't tell us it was big enough to share, so 2 big salads came out. I wanted to save room for my entrée. The salad was good, with each leaf of the romaine lettuce dressed and laid out on the plate uncut. Looked like a head of lettuce. The bread, by the way, was 2 long breadsticks, not crunchy, a little fatter and bread-like consistency. there was a tapenade bowl to dip in, but there was a layer olive oil that was on top, and the breadstick wasn't wide enough to pick up any. the pasta was okay, meatballs tasty but not what I expected at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant. we wont return.

    We arrived right on time for our reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes for them to set the table. The food was outstanding! They had a tablet reader to pick your drinks. We had the squash blossoms as an appetizer and they were outstanding. We also had the baby kale and caprese salads both excellent. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was very fresh, the red sauce - outstanding and the meatballs - fantastic. My husband ordered the bass and liked that. It's located at Mandalay Bay Hotel and is made to look like you are at an outdoor cafe but really inside the building. That is Vegas for you. Wolfgang Puck is an amazing chef with fresh ingredients.

    Excellently prepared gnocchi and fish. "Outdoor" dining is actually inside hotel along the major walkway from parking, so be prepared to watch guests parade by...which could be quite entertaining as well. Support staff (hostess, bus boy, etc.) were more helpful and pleasant than waiter, who often disappeared and who arrived using plural pronouns (how are WE doing in tonight? what are WE having for dinner?).

    The food king needs to spend a little time at this outpost. The quality service of some old school waiters in overshadowed by food preparations that just don't quite succeed. As in, about half the mussels in the steamed appetizer were a day past prime. The elegant presentation of two-foot long breadsticks is striking and creative until one discovers the bread is mealy and tasteless. The petrale sole was nicely prepared but the lobster risotto was more sauce than rice or fish. Pretty much hit or miss in general...

    Nice restaurant tucked into the Mandalay Bay hotel. Dress ran the gamut from pre-show dress to bathing suits and cover ups. The service was good, hostess and wait staff were very attentive. Signature drinks and wines were tasty. The shrimp appetizer and dessert were by far the best things we ordered. My fiancée ordered the minestrone soup and also ordered the shrimp appetizer. Both were great! I had the Kale salad which was good but nothing to wow over. My bucatini was tasty a bit on the spicy side, but the sea bass was the driest my fiancée has ever tasted. For dessert we shared a chocolate gelato and grenache dessert that was delicious.

    Great food and wine. Courteous service. Good value. My wife and I each had the kale salad. Fantastic and large size portion. I had the hand cut pasta with veal. Better than mom used to make (and she was a great cook). My wife is vegan. Enjoyed the kale, but also had sides of roasted potatoes and spinach. Satisfying. Waiter obviously loves his job and does it extremely well.

    During our recent trip to Las Vegas, we stayed at the Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay Resort. We ate dinner at Lupo's on three consecutive nights. There are no misses on the menu - all items are hits. The service is excellent, especially if you get Kellan or J.D. and their teams. We could not have been more pleased and will continue to visit Lupo's whenever we are in town. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself at Lupo's!

    When visiting Vegas, I was excited to dine at a Wolfgang restaurant. I had been to a couple of other Wolfgang locations before so expected a great experience. The food was average in flavor. I was with a group of 8 and the main courses came out inconsistent which caused the temperature to change before we were all able to start eating. The service was sub-par with the waiter frequently forgetting our requests and being unfriendly. I was really disappointed, also considering the expense.

    Nine of us were there for our daughter's graduation dinner. It was fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive, we were able to sit on the patio as requested, no one had anything bad to say about the food. Daughter was a little disappointed not seeing Wolfgang. Maybe next time. :) Only downfall? Drinks are way too pricey.

    One has so very many choices of Italian restaurants in Las Vegas; every hotel has at least one! This was one of the better meals I've had in Vegas over the years (and I'm there several times in a year). Wonderful Caprese salad and a very tasty, homemade pasta. Deseert, tiramisu, was mundane at best. Though there was quite a bit of serving staff, it was confused at times. I'd go back.

    Made a reservation for dinner before a show we were seeing in the casino. We waited when we got there because server was just coming on duty and then waited for drinks from the bar. We landed up having appetizers so tht we wouldn't miss the show. No excuse for a restaurant with a famous name reputation.
