    Our first visit to this Resturant. We were somewhat disappointed. I had the signature spaghetti and meatballs. This dis was extremely salty. However you could tell the pasta and sauce was made from scratch. Overall I had had much better. Bastas in Portland would blow this dish away. My wife had what was described as sea bass. She was not sure what is was but it was not sea bass. Living in the PNW we are spoiled about high quality fish. In hindsight we should gotten the pizza special which looks great and was given high mark by the couple in an table across from us..

    Over-rated. I'd never had meatballs with no texture and no taste until dinner at Lupo. Truly awful. Chicken piccata, 4 big pieces, probably meant to overwhelm with portion size while underwhelming without flavor. Seafood entrees seemed better but no chance on a return visit, in fact, turns me off to idea of any more Puck food anywhere. Watery and underwhelming, his time as a taste leader is done for me.

    Given 2 menus for 4 people. Had to ask 15 mins later for more. Had to ask for water All previous restaurants stated that they would waive a corkage fee if they didn't carry the wine. Not this one. $50 Broke the cork while opening our $150 of wine. After the first pour of wine we had to pour our own. Took one hour to get our food. I would say the food was average. Nothing special about it. Ambience of the restaurant and quality of the food was not the best considering it's price. We had much better at several other places. We were a little disappointed

    Went to Lupo with some friends during a recent trip. I love steak and thought this would be a fun place to enjoy one. I was initially put off when the server would not take our food order in stages (e.g. drinks and appetizers, then come back for the main course). We were told the chef would only allow full orders in his kitchen (pompous chefs are not worth a trip). Our drinks and appetizers came out and were good. The main course - a steak (filet mignon) - might as well have been the sole of my shoe. It was terrible. I could not chew it; my dog may have enjoyed it though (if I weren't out of town). Went to the restaurant across the way the night before (the Red Square) and had an excellent steak. My advice is to skip Lupo.

    The food here was wonderful! The gnocchi were the best I have ever eaten! I would go back there again in a heart beat and order the exact same thing! My husband ate the braised short ribs which was on the specials menu and it was very good as well, most of the meat was very tender and juicy. We look forward to returning and tasting other items on the menu.

    The tables "outside" (indoors, but in the throughway as if al fresco) wasn't bad from a noise perspective. Our reservations were graciously held without a word despite being 15 min late. Table was ready immediately. The service was above expectations. Pasta dishes were well prepared and cooked well (al dente). Highly recommend.

    Not a large menu selection. My husband and I each ordered a dish and split it so that we could sample the menu. Lasagna was fairly bland. Chicken was flavorless. Crispy squash was simply delicious! I'd give it another try. Maybe it was an off night.

  • Absurd corkage fee
    CorkageFee
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    The food was very good, to be expected at any high end restaurant. However, not all high end restaurants on the strip charge a $50 corkage fee (Ten charged us $25). The wine list consisted of wines that were mostly above the $50 price, so obviously only care about selling their own wines. For Wolfgang Puck, who has made a name for himself with his large chain of restaurants, the high corkage fee is unnecessary. We were a group who are use to eating at high end restaurants where price is not an issue for us. However, we will not return.

    Very bad experience. We went due to reviews so either we had a really bad night or the other reviewers had a really good night. Let's start with the wine and drink list. It's a joke on an iPad. Then slow, slow bad service. The appetizers were served with no utensils. The entrees were served and the 2 sides came 10 minutes later with no utensils! Food was not good for price. Would not return!

    Good good prices fair. Our dinner was ruined by our waiter Ricardo. In a nut shell. Waited for menus, Waited 15 minutes for our drink which we had to request. Our dinner order was placed and still no drinks. Had to ask for spoon with soup that took 5 minutes as soup got cold. After dinner he says let me get you a desert menu. That never happened after waiting ten minutes I requested my check. Shame on this decent place not to have competent help.

    Just like so many other Vegas restaurants. Over priced and under staffed. We wanted to order each course after the previous arrived and were "advised" not to do that. So we didn't and received our main dish before our salads which we never received. Our waiter seemed a little flustered so don't know if he was overworked or just not very good. Most liked our food, but wasn't overly amazing.

    The calamari appetizer and the kale salad were the best part of the meal. The noise level ... inside a casino, no surprise ... was taxing. The server, at a very un-busy hour, was not attentive, often MIA. I expressly asked for a recommendation for an un-sugary drink, and was brought a cucumber martini that might as well have been a straight-up packet of Dixie Crystals. Instead of it perking me up for a night of fun with friends, I had the sugar crash of the week ... disappointing. My entree, the pork chop Milanese, was simply "meh" and, for the price, offered no discernible accompaniments (three grape tomatoes and a tiny pile of shredded lettuce). I've dined at many of Puck's establishments. This one was just not up to par.

    Professional yet very friendly service. Specials of the day were top notch with adequate portions and very reasonable prices. The duck sausage risotto was absolutely delicious. They also offered wine by the glass affordably priced. The waiter made sure that the pacing of the meal allowed for us to leave in time for the show we were attending. If it hadn't been for those plans, we would have lingered over dessert and after dinner coffee/drinks. Will return next trip to Vegas.

    Robert was our server, he was top notch. He was knowledgeable and offered great recommendations. We had a mini reunion with my family and the atmosphere, the settings all perfect. The food was over the top-I had the liver, it melted in my mouth. My husband and the pork chops - very tender, moist. Make sure you tell Robert you want your cookies-medium temperature. I will definitely go back.

    Lupo's food was good-not unbeleivable but good. But the restaurant missed on a couple things that put a cloud on the evening. We had looked at the website from the link sent by open table and had picked our meal that we wanted to order... Then when we got there none of the things we were going to order were on the menu. You guys need to get with it on your website. Also service was good but PLEASE don't call a 54 year old successful business women"young lady" not just once but-I counted it-8 times. It is not a compliment and considering I am the one paying the bill not too respectful!

    Wife and I thought we would try something different. Very high quality restaurant. Menu might be great for others. Bread sticks were skinny and hard. Food portions were small for the high price. Service was outstanding. Everything was outstanding for us except the menu. Food was very spicy as well. So problem was probably more ours then theirs. We should have went somewhere more to our taste. If you like this kind of food you will most likely enjoy. The food type was not our cup of tea.
