Good Resto, not great "Steakhouse"
All in all very good experience at the Botero. Beautiful place and decor. Chairs are very comfortable. Service was outstanding, as our waiter and his staff were hovering around all night to see how they could serve us.
My only complaint would be the bone in Ribeye I ordered. Taste was fantastic and very tender, however too much of the fatty part not meat (dont know the name)
All in all, I enjoyed the experience, and would likely comeback when in vegas.

The food was excellent but
The food was excellent but the service made this an outstanding evening. We were there on the Thursday of the Easter long weekend, and it was a great start to our stay at the Wynn/Encore. Maura, our server, was fantastic.

Third visit to Botero..... Every
Third visit to Botero.....
Every visit my wife and I try to incorporate 3 or 4 new restaurants in our dinner plans. But we always keep coming back to Botero...
Still the best steaks in Vegas in our humble opinion.

Open beautiful ambiance. Multiple menus including a complete vegetarian option. The service was amazing (Athena and team). Blair was fantastic in assisting us with a great wine. The food was fresh and delicious. Will be back.

I think Botero is the best Steakhouse in Vegas. Great food, service, and location. We ate on the patio and it was very peaceful. The only downside was that someone delivering food spilled a glass of wine and it was replaced with house wine which was a bit of a downgrade.
The Mac & Cheese is so good that we debated having it again for desert.

This was our favorite meal
This was our favorite meal in Las Vegas! Definitely worth it and we will be back on our next visit to Vegas!

Favorite restaurant in Vegas! Oysters, split Caesar salad, porterhouse, truffled Mac n cheese, creamed spinach, and dessert doughnuts.... Outstanding.

Solid Bet in Vegas
Thoroughly enjoyed this meal and the experience as a whole. Service was on point and the food was very good. I wouldn't hesitate to come back on my next visit to Sin City.

Don't miss this one!
Fabulous food and service. First rate wine list. Beautiful atmosphere and views of the pools and courtyards. Excellent Kobe steaks and short ribs. Lovely dining experience.

Delicious dinner, spotty service
All around a very good restaurant. Wagyu beef and Maine lobster was a delicious combination and very good, but sadly the lobster was over cooked. Seating layout is well planned and creates a good flow for guests. Our server team seemed to have too many tables and the waitress and busboy often left gaps in the service - at a restaurant with $115 entrees it's disappointing that twice we had to "flag down" a hostess because we needed something and there was not waitstaff available to assist us.

Sat outside for dinner - was a bit windy. Wish we would have chosen to sit inside.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had meat and it was perfect. Mid expensive but reasonalble for the quality.

Did the regular and vegetarian
Did the regular and vegetarian tasting menus and all the courses were amazing. Great sangria too.

I have loved this restaurant for a long time. Quiet, elegant yet not pompous, And probably the very best filet in Vegas. I tried the halibut this time and it was a dash underseasoned, still flaky and fragrant, I would give it an 8. Always sweet and thoughtful with celebrations. I truly enjoyed. Thank you!

Nice place for a lovely dinner
My girlfriend and I came here at 9:30pm on a Friday night. I thought it would be more packed, but it was halfway filled. No worries though, it did not deter me from loving the decor, furniture, etc. The service was great from the hosts to the servers. Very attentive and not annoying! The food was delicious and well priced for being in Vegas. I hope it was just an off night as far as patrons are concerned, because it really was a lovely leisurely dinner of which we were able to talk to each other without yelling! yay! hehe Would visit again and recommend for smaller parties and business dinners with clients because it is conducive for conversation.

Good food, average ambience.
Both food and servicewere high quality and well presented. One piece of advice: we were overwhelmed by the size of the appetizers (beef tartare and tuna tartare); either would be enough for two to share. The ambience left a lot to be desired, however. We had requested to be seated inside but when the hostess seated us the other diners were so close that we changed to an outdoor table. Unfortunately, those tables adjoin the pool deck with pool furniture as the vista on one side and a view into the walkway between the Wynn and Encore on the other. It is comfortable on the open terrace though despite ambient temperatures outside the area that reached 110 degrees the evening we ate. The combination of aircon and misting was really effective.

Awesome drinks and amazing entrees. The steak made my night. Will for sure be back.

This was our second time dining
This was our second time dining at Botero. The food is excellent. The wine is overpriced. The service this visit was slow; perhaps our waiter had too many tables. We would have ordered dessert if he had been more attentive.

Very interesting food fare.
Very interesting food fare. My Sicilian wife really liked the octopus appetizer. I thought the sea bass was deeelicious! Our 4 other friends were likewise delighted.

This is on our short-list of favorite restaurants in Vegas. The tables are situated such that you feel you have intimate dining. The food is excellent and the waitstaff is very nice.

Great Find in Encore
This is the first time i had visited Botero and i have to say that i am impress with the taste and quality of the food. The Foei Gras I had at Botero is one of the biggest and juiciest on the strip. I also loved the Wagyu short Rib that was on the menu. The food were simply delicious. I would definitely come back here for more!!!!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, good service.
Had the porterhouse and it was cooked to perfection.
Must try the seafood tower!!!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved Botero, the food and the service were wonderful. We had the soft-shell Crab BLT starter and one of the tomato mozzarella salads. For dinner, one Rib-eye(so succulent!), one filet(cooked to perfection!) one Dover sole special($75, but very worth it!) and one Short Ribs(yum,yum, yum). We also had Mac n cheese with truffle and one twice baked potato with Lobster. Huge portions enough for the four of us. The somm. helped us pick wine, one bottle of Au Bon Climat Chardonney and one bottle of a Zinfindel that was $102 and I can't remeber the name but it was big and jammy, just the way a good Zin should be. Our waiter was funny, attentive and he really knew the menu. Our bill was $515 before tip, but worth every penny! Thanks Botero!

I've been to Botero twice and actually look forward to going to Botero when I visit Vegas. The bread, Mac N Cheese and desserts are awesome.

Excellent Food As Always
The food was outstanding. We had a dry-aged NY Steak cooked to a perfect medium rare. We also enjoyed their small salad a delicious tuna tartare (just the right amount of spice to it), and two sides (a decadent creamed spinach being the most memorable). The wine list was slightly overpriced (even for Vegas) and my cocktail (a Manhattan) was undrinkable, but these faults were made up by the excellent, not too intrusive, service and the bread basket (the later made me see how people could happily live on bread on water).

Not to be missed
The service was impeccable. They were patient, accommodating and great with suggestions. As for the food,be prepared to roll your eyes in the back of your head it's so good. The creamed spinach was spinach with a hint of cream not drowned in it.
Even the broccoli had a hint of garlic and oil, not swimming in it. The drinks were fantastic, would advise to have the Sinatra special or even the sangria.
My only regret was I never had room for dessert. But would go back and try and leave room

Great Potential Unfulfilled
After a long day at PackExpo, sitting by the lake outside Botero on the patio was relaxing! The service was excellent, attentive, and friendly! I enjoyed the Scallops as an appetizer; they were tender, almost fragile, but not seasoned as much as they needed to be to carry a flavor. For the main course, Brioche Crusted Rack of Colorado Lamb, was an excellent prime piece of young and tender lamb, but again not seasoned or marinated as much as necessary to carry a flavor. The Lamb lasagna, cavallo nero was overly seasoned, far too much basil, and far too spicy. So, the Chefs order great seafood and meat but are inconsistent in their seasoning. If you don't taste what you cook, you're destined to repeat every mis-step and mistake.

We keep trying others in vegas but keep coming back - its consistently great food - great ambiance and handy if you are staying.
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a beautiful place! Went here to celebrate my 32nd birthday, plus we were staying at the Encore hotel. They had their extensive wine menu on a easy to browse Ipad. There was even a feature where you can look at the wine bottle labels. I chose a French Cabernet Sauvignon. We started off with our server's favorite: the Kobe short rib ravioli. Then I got the dry aged bone in New York strip. Perfect. I wanted to eat it all, but it was too big. It was really nice to sip on delicious wine and take bites of a succulent steak. It was a great end to a crazy Vegas weekend.

This was my second time dining at Botero. The food, service and ambience were absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough about this Restaurant and intend on dining there each time I return to Las Vegas.
