OASIS of Pleasure
My friend had a horrible, awful, not very good day, so she wanted to retreat to Robuchon to be pampered. We've been to the restaurant, the only one she's tried that she longs to return to. But this time we just wanted the same pampering with a smaller meal, so we went to L'Atelier. The food is always great, and so is the service. She had the lobster salad and I had the crab, plus dessert. The service is impeccable, yet friendly, and the quality of ingredients and preparation is superb. I requested low seating, knowing that most of the seats are at the bar (the room is small, an anteroom-bar, really, for the restaurant next door). She sat next to the glassed in panorama of fruits and flowers. Calm restored.

I had the tasting menu with wine pairings. I would say that half off the items were off the charts great, the other half were good.

What a great restaurant
Excellent presentation and ambience, beautiful balance of the dishes. We loved the smaller dishes like the langoustine fritter and the anchovies. The menu provided excellent value with two appetizers.
Service was excellent and attentive. An outstanding restaurant.

Most amazing food in Vegas!
This was my second time going to this restaurant for dinner. The ambience, the friendly staff, the chef, and the food are all exemplary. I highly recommend this establishment.

We were supposed to have a show, but couldn't finish a dinner on the time.. And you know what? We cancelled the show, even we had tickets already... And never will be sorry. Great place, must go!

A once in a lifetime food event
Expensive but worth every penny. The food was sensational. The service impeckable. Do the wine pairings otherwise too many choic
es. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant. If I'm Ever in Las Vegas again I would certainly budget for a return visit. Be advised dinner lasts 2 to 3 hours.

Excellent food & Service.
Contemporary decor. Loved the heavy door that seals out the casino cacophony just outside. Maybe a tad on the loud side if... No hushed conversations here. Plus, the design creates some echo. Otherwise, we were very happy.

Esse restaurante deve ser visitado pelo menos uma vez na vida, pratos bem elaborados, e você acompanha tudo de sua mesa e principalmente se sentar na bancada, vale cada centavo. Recomendo muito pra quem vai a las vegas.

Great warm up for Ka!
Amazing presentation and taste of all items tried. Enjoyed watching creation of dishes and liked the open kitchen concept.

This is a fantastic address; I highly recommend it for those who are seeking a unique modern French gastronomy experience.

Fantastic food experience.
The food and presentation of it was absolutely amazing. It was very special to watch team prepare it (if you sit by the bar you have a great view of the open kitchen). We picked a bigger menu option which in total was a 6 course meal (105$). Even though portions weren't big I had to skip the dessert. Which I absolutely regret. I wish I had picked a smaller menu (the only difference was a second option of entree (78$)). The service was great. The only downfall was the wait and slight indifference from the hostess that couldn't seat is right away. I understand it is a small place but it is still a matter of attitude and how you feel greeted at the door.

L'Atelier Joel Robinson June 2013
I found the food presentation and quality were excdellent, however the quantities were small compared to other similarly priced Las Vegas restaurants. I would not recommend it for the price.

Truly one of the finest meals we have had. Casual but sharp looking restaurant with a very attentive wait staff. Can't wait to get back.

Great Food, Service erratic
The food was great, and getting to watch the kitchen was interesting.
The service was a bit erratic in terms of timing. Staff were very pleasant, but the main was served literally 10 seconds after the starter was served. No time to pause. There was then a much lengthier wait for dessert. Averaging out the two would have been perfect.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We sat at the bar and had the chance to view the wonderful chefs prepare all the plates that would come out. Every plate was so detailed oriented and made on the spot. We were very impressed with the delicate cuisine and excellent service. Try all the items the waiter suggests as those were the best plates in our experience.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Did the Seasonal Tasting Menu. One of the best meals I've ever had.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved nearly all the food, except for beef cheeks which weren't my taste. Great spectacle, watching everything prepared before you. Beautifully presented, perfectly prepared. (Except Companion happened to get side of mashed potatoes with two dishes, which he said were lukewarm both times--on purpose?)
Other than that everything fabulous.
Service a little rushed (early seating) and bar chairs (most of the restaurant) not super-comfortable.

à faire une fois dans sa vie....
Soirée mémorable, de voir travailler toute l'équipe derrière les stations comme de petites abeilles tout au long de la soirée c'est unique comme ambiance et que dire de la qualité de la nourriture qui est servie: extraordinaire....

Must Try Once
For several years, my husband and I skipped the Joel Robuchon restaurants thinking they were too high-brow for us. This vacation we got up the nerve to book L'Atelier and try the Seasonal Discovery Menu. Every course was incredible, great flavors in every bite. Portions look small but the flavors are explosive and nine courses will fill you up. The servers are very knowledgeable about the food and restaurant; they are approachable and encourage questions. Not sure if L'Atelier will fit into our trip budget next year, but it is definitely a highly-recommended indulgence.

Third time and many more to come
This restaurant provides a culinary education for its diners. The resounding sentiment is "oh, this is what it's supposed to taste like." The food is superb and the wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and courteous - truly a phenomenal dining experience! ...And the gazpacho is thrilling!

The Best Meal of my life
Ok I will start from the Beginning. We made reservations for 6:30 but ended up with too much time to kill until then so we asked the lovely hostess if she could by chance squeeze us in at 5:00. She didn't bat an eyelash and instantly changed our reservations. We stood outside waiting and ended up talking to Ben, the sommonlier, for a few minutes. Once he found out that we had gotten married a few days before and that we both worked in restaurants he changed out seat assignment so that we were sitting at the bar with a few of how they made all the food. It was amazing. I ordered the wine pairing with my meal and honestly it was amazing. The food was amazing the service was amazing. Best meal of my life so far. Plus the scallops, oh my......

Great food and different
I Will go again, It was a very interesting gourmet experience
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sit at the counter to see the food being prepared. The service was perfect, our server was knowledgeable and gladly answered all our questions. It's expensive, yes, but the food is just extraordinary so for a special event, it's so worth it! We each ordered one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert (they're all small plates/tapas style), all different, to get a nice variety. We both ranked it as the best meal we've ever had!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
Great food, had seasonal tasting menu, exceptionally pleased with variety of flavors and ingredients. Service was also exceptional and server was very knowledgeable about every dish and ingredient, as well as being personable. Recommend to those who don't mind paying for great food, those with a good palate, or one who enjoys the preparation of such through this exhibition kitchen. I'll be back.

I lived in Paris for a year, and I didn't even experience French food this exquisite there. I had the 9-course seasonal discovery menu and a 1/2 bottle of wine, and I loved every bite and sip! Each dish was only a few bites, so you really have to savour each flavour. The combinations are inventive and delicious, and I can't wait to go again. A bit on the pricy side, and you probably won't leave stuffed to the brim; this is most definitely fine dining. The atmosphere, however is a bit dressy-casual, so it wasn't intimidating. Parties of 2 sit at the bar where you can see the kitchen doing their stuff, and the servers are right there to explain things every step of the way. Best meal I've had this year!

For what has now become a "haute"restaurant chain, the food at the food at Atelier LV remains extremely well executed.
One exception was a new dish described as spaghetti with oursin (sea urchin), soft boiled egg and ginger. The dish arrived minus
the egg which we were told was a misprint on the menu. There was no detectable ginger either. The urchin was nearly tasteless
coming from a plastic tray typically seen in sushi bars. The dish was disappointingly bland with no accents to enliven essentially a
highly priced spaghetti with jet lagged oursin. The langoustine fritter while appealing was misnamed being wrapped in bric dough
and fried. Still a great be it pricey dining experience.

Great dining experience. Wonderful menu options. Definitely will return to try the discovery menu. Extra dessert with candle for the birthday boy was a classy touch.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Subtle flavors shaded into blandness. Overuse of foie gras to my taste but I could have chosen other than the chef's tasting. Wine pairing odd -- reused some wines for the next course. Not always giving a second pour or making it clear the wine was supposed to stretch. The salad was delicious, but inadequately tossed. Only one bite carried all the flavors. Steak was excellent. I understand this is something of a rest kitchen which may explain the unevenness.

Great food. Excellent service.
Great food. Excellent service. Expensive but nice experience.
Difficult to find a wine priced below $100.

WOWEEE WOW WOW!!!!!!!
We LOVED every moment of our dinner. Our server Eddie explained each plate and how to eat it. We had a 9 courses fixed along with 3 apps and dessert. Do not miss these 1) the amuse bouche with parm foam, a red wine reduction and foie gras 2) the seared foie gras (don't forget to eat the cranberries...yum) 3) hamachi ravioli with uni filling....amazing! Oh and mashed potatoes...TO DIE FOR! This meal was all about the details, from freshly made bread, to fresh silverware for each round. And dessert was perfect, from the Chantilly cake to the best blueberries we've EVER had, alongside the most delicious cherry sorbet and the chocolate temptation was just wonderful! We BOTH left saying it was the "best meal I've ever had in my life!" See yelp!

Incredible dining experience
This was our second time dining at L'Atelier and it did not disappoint. The service is amazing- staff really went out of their way to make us feel special and make our dining experience something to remember. The servers were very knowledgable and the service very prompt. We chose a pre fixe option with an appetiser and main course. The food was divine and presented with immaculate attention to detail and while potion sizes are small, the richness of the food ensures that you are not left feeling unsatisfied. The cheque at the end of the meal was the real surprise- even with cocktails and dessert, the final total was extremely reasonable for the quality of the food and the impeccable service.

Special occasion dinner for my wife's birthday. Expensive but a very enjoyable time and food was excellent. Joe was our server. Very good at explaining the dishes and was not pretentious. Best French food I have had outside France.
