    We found this restaurant on line and decided to try it because we had not been there before. We were not disappointed. The service was excellant, and not intrusive. The food was outstanding. All dishes were properly cooked and very tastey. The peach cobbler dessert was a bit dissappinting due to the biscuit-like topping being hard and cool. The decor is somewhat dated, late 60's, but has a feel of "old Vegas". All in all we enjoyed our visit, and would reccomend it as a nice mid-priced establishemnt.

    While the decor is somewhat dated it is still clean, comfortable, and very nice. unfortunately the food was not. Given that the menu was somewhat limited one would expect that they would be cooked perfectly, it was not. The soup was just slightly better than warm. My steak ordered rare was more like medium. The salmon again was barely warm, and the salads were simply a plate of lettuce with a couple of cherry tomato's and very little tasteless dressing. It's hard to complain or send things back when after your served everybody disappears. Maybe they have worked there long enough they know better than to hang around. We won't be rushing back.

    We ate dinner at R before a show as a "treat" to ourselves. We were very impressed- the restaurant was tastefully designed and decorated. Our server was great, timely; our lateness to the show was not at all his fault- we wanted to linger over the food longer than we should have. The bread basket was delicious, the wine was great, the 2 steaks were perfect, the sides were delicious. We paid about $100 for 2 steak dinners and a bottle of wine and we don't feel that we wasted a penny. We can't wait to go back. *this was labeled a "neighborhood find" because it's inside the Riviera and much easier to get to if you're already there.

    This is truly a great find on Vegas's Southern end. The food was great, the service was great and the price was great. I would highly recommend traveling down to the Strip's Southside and enjoy the food, the service and the history of the Riviera.

    Having stayed in the Riviera previously and never having tried their steak house I thought I should visit during this vacation. I did so... twice. The service level is exemplary old-school Vegas and I was greeted by name and made to feel most welcome. The food menu is short... but that enables them to concentrate on perfecting the dishes. Look out for daily specials... the BLT soup sounded entreating and proved to be a real winner for those that couldn't decide between a soup or a salad! All-in-all, a wonderful experience that I will be sure to repeat on my next visit.

    We had looked at the menus for a variety of steak houses in Las Vegas. I am sure there are others that rival The R in quality and service, but I doubt any can do it at this price point. I had a rib eye and it was outstanding. It was cooked perfectly to order. The salad was equally superb. The service was exemplary and very personal. I simply can't say enough about The R. Not only would I go there again, I will make it a point to go there every time I visit Las Vegas.

    We waited well over an hour and a half from the time we ordered our food to the time we received it. We were told later it was because they ran out of what we ordered. In my opinion if that was the case the chef should have explained that to the waiter so he could have come to us and explain what had happened and offered us an alternative. Better yet a good chef would have come out of the kitchen to explain it himself. The waiter was kind enough to comp us some drinks and desserts for our wait, and he was very apologetic, but it seems the chef of this restaurant needs some training in the proper running of a kitchen.The food we waited so long for was average at best when we finally got it.

    We were there for Valentine's Day weekend and everything was super great. The Waiters and all the staff were welcoming and helpful, the food was great and plenty of it. Everything was cooked and served with perfection. They made us feel loved and special. We can't thank you enough for a really great experience. We ate there three times and The R will be on top of our list of must things to do when we go to Vegas. The R is a hidden gem that should be more known about. We have been telling our friends that go to Vegas not to miss eating at the R. Thank you all.

  • CES Trip Meeting for Dinner
    CarJamzCEO
    Dined on 1/9/2014
    I took clients there two night in a row for CES show. It was close and convenient as both our clients were staying the the Riviera. In general, the restaurant was good, the food was good, the price was fair. The only thing I was upset about was that I had an important meeting one night, and we arrived 30 minutes late for our reservation. There was plenty of open tables and no line at the door. The hostess told me she would not be able to seat us for 20 minutes. She went and got the manager, and he told us after 15 minutes late, they kicked us off the list and seated another table. They did eventually seat us within 5 minutes at a nice table, but embarrassed me in front of our customers. Customer Service needs work.

    It took about 10 minutes for the server to greet us. The first bottle of wine I ordered, they were out of. It then took 45 minutes to receive our salads and 1 hour and 45 minutes to receive our entrees. When we checked on our meal at 1 hour and 30 minutes we were told it was late because they ran out of potatoes and had to bake them from scratch. The manager offered up nothing except to say "It is a poor excuse, but all I can do is apologize." When the bill arrived, they offered no discount.

    We enjoyed a different bottle of wine with each course of this lovely meal. I had the caprese salad and the maple-glazed salmon, which I loved, everyone else at the table had the filet mignon, which they also really enjoyed. The atmosphere is modern and classy and the staff all had a great attitude. This steakhouse is a lovely find on the strip.

    I was hoping they would have more "Seafood" options. All they really had was the he salmon and mussels. We did get the mussels which were superb and the New York Strip which was A LOT of meat. We also had a side of mac n cheese which was not really my favorite. Also the side of asparagus was not as steamed as I would have liked. But the entree of Steak, appetizer of mussels and the wine, a Shiraz (Layer Cake) was was amazing!

    We had steaks, they were perfectly prepared. I had the mussels, the broth was excellent. Was disappointed in the shrimp cocktail as the shrimp tasted very bland and were quite small. I think they forgot to bring us a bread basket caused I looked around every table had one. Didn't say anything as I was already on to my entree when I noticed. Atmosphere and staff were pleasant.

    We had reservations at 6:00, and arrived at 5:50, 10 minutes early. Even though we are early diners, and the dining room was fairly empty, we were told by the host to come back at our reservation time. Made no sense, and we had to wander the hall and just "hang out" until we were seated. It was insulting. No intimate seating. Long tables with a very uncomfortable "bench" along one side. We expected a nice steak house with some comfortable booths for more private dining. Not a good atmosphere for special occasions.

    Initially a pleasant experience. Service was mixed however. When appetizers arrived there was no check back for 10+ min. The entree was a Cedar Plank Salmon for 2. No utensiles to divide the salmon were provided, The Salmon itself had clearly been forzen, as the inside was slightly undercooked and mushy. The Dill butter sauce was bland at best. Could have been much better.

    I picked this location because they could accompany larger group (18) and the the reviews in Open Table were good. I arrived an hour early and introduced myself to the manger who said: “I need to talk to Open Table because my group is too big”. He suggested a limited menu, I agreed, and then the manger decided against it. Long dining experience, my customer later told me that they would have left if the poor service and food wasn’t so funny. In 3 ½ hrs we never did receive wine glasses, we were told” they were all dirty”. The busman got a bottle of wine in 4 minutes, when it took the waiter and or manger sometimes 40 minutes. No water pitchers left on the table, told that the restaurant only had one. The discount given to us was large.

    There were six of us, and that created the opportunity for both hits and misses with the food we chose. Briefly, the Caesar salads and French onion soup were enjoyed by those who had ordered them, but the seafood chowder was returned to the kitchen because it was bad (I don't know the details). The rib eyes, prime ribs and scallops seemed to be good, but I had the NY Strip and it was terrible. It was very difficult to cut, and it was dry (even though I had ordered it medium rare and it was reddish inside) and tasteless.
