A word from Rick Moonen's RM Seafood
In January 2005, the aquatic-chic restaurant, rm seafood joined the newest wave of world class restaurants at Mandalay Place. Award-winning seafood maestro, Rick Moonen, one of the hottest chefs at the helm, was lured from NYC to create rm seafood. A mecca for seafood lovers and hipsters alike, rm seafood is a relaxed rocking bistro atmosphere that also features a world-class sushi bar & coast-coast oysters at the raw bar. Sleek and fresh with a contemporary look, the restaurant is built from mahogany with lots of glass and reminiscent of yachts and wooden boats. Whether creating a new dish with fresh finds from America's best Fish Markets or praising the provenance and quality of eco-friendly seafood, Rick Moonen's passion for seafood is contagious.

Reservations always recommended.

    I ate there twice in the same week and both times I was very pleased with the freshness of the fish and the outstanding prime cuts of beef. All good to go but not cheap.

    Went here on one of those post-convention business dinners. The service was great and my colleagues most said that their meals were good. I, however, wasn't very impressed with the SURF AND SURF main course that I got. Reputed to be their "award-winning" dish for the past several years, this lobster, shrimp, and risotto dish was basically overcooked and rubbery. At $60 for a main dish, that's not the best result. Normally, i'd have sent it back but, with some business contacts at the meal, I didn't want to be "that" guy.

    Had an excellent meal at RM, which I orignially selected because of Rick Moonen's notariety. It was a great choice. The "Surf, Surf & Surf" was incredible as was every other course. This is a restaurant I highly recommend.

    I had the sustainable catch of the day - Grilled Cobia with asparagus 2 ways. It was decadent. The food (entre) made up for awkward service - my servers comments were borderline offensive. I don't know if he realized how his tableside manners were - it would have been better if he didn't bother with small talk at all. I would have given more stars had the service been better.

    The prices were unbelievably high and the service didn't match. Yet more than anything, the food was so-so as I had high expectations going in. Some dishes were too rich, some were lacking flavor, the Calamari was the worst I've ever had. I tasted like cheap onion rings from Habit burger or Carl's Jr. Not impressive at all given how much they charged and that it was RM's Calamari. I won't be back and will tell others not to go.

    I've been here several times and im over it. The best part about the meal was the sushi, the Hawaiian Sunrise roll and the Futo-Fireball roll are delicious. The dessert sampler was just ok. The service was just ok, just didn't seem to have a good flow, we were seated at a table past the end of the bar which was brighter and just seemed like the "kids table." I've always been seated at what I would call the "main dining area" which is dimmer and more intimate. I felt more like I was at a sports bar than having a fine dining experience. I've typically had great experience in the past but this time around was just ok. I spent a ton of money for 6 people and we were all still hungry after we left. Not worth the money.

    Having had a fabulous experience at Rick Moonen's other LV establishment The Boiler Room, we had high expectations for RM Seafood. Sadly, the décor was bland, the table small, and the food was sometimes fabulous and other times just ok. Our waiter (and all the wait/bus staff), however, was great and helped make the evening overall positive. I wouldn't highly recommend this restaurant but I wouldn't say to avoid it either. The Thai Papaya salad was beyond delicious, as was the key-lime tart.

    Seeing the Chef Rick Moonen on Top Chef Masters I was curious about his menu... I love seafood and this restaurant did not disappoint! Also note that the filet was INCREDIBLE as well. My friend and I split the surf and turf and the crab duo. The crab cake was soooooo delicious and the sauce... out of this world. As a forward we had the lobster bisque made with coconut milk! Wow. Our server George was great, very knowledgeable and Amanda was super nice! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

    Oysters as appetizers were sweet and tasty. I had Cobia and my business partner had the barramundi. Both were melt in your mouth fish with great flavor. Dessert was the key lime pie and the 16 flavor ice cream and sorbet sampler. We were even lucky enough to have Rick stop by our table!! Amazing food with impeccable service!!

We had two very well behaved children with us and although they do not have a children's menu, they were able to accommodate them. Would be a perfect place for a special occasion meal.

    I had not visited Rick Moonen's since the change in format. I was expecting the fine dining restaurant that was formerly upstairs. Evidently, upstairs is now very casual fare; downstairs is upscale. But this was NOT fine dining. Linen napkins, but no table cloths. That was okay. But honestly, I could have been at McCormick & Schmick's. Ordered oysters, which were good. BUT the red wine vinegar they use is very overpowering. Destroyed the delicate flavor of the oysters. Surprising. The entree I ordered was the special catch of the day. Fine. Not outstanding. Service was attentive, but nothing special. Had to flag down the Manager to get a second glass of wine (previously ordered) after my entree had arrived. Disappointing.

    Was in Vegas for 5 days and this was, hands down, the best meal of the trip. Service was phenomenal and each dish was brilliant in it's own right. Oyster shooters where a fave and uniquely presented and lobster bisque had actual chunks of lobster tail, not something you come across every day. Was so good went back for happy hour on the last day of the trip and tried the sushi bar which was also great.

    The food (White Clam Chowder and Surf, Surf & Surf) were great. The chowder was light with a nice little kick to it. The three surfs were a poached lobster tail, jumbo shrimp and diver scallops on a bed of risotto. This is fresh seafood prepared in a very inspiring way. And it is simply delicious. The service was very good - attentive without being overbearing. My only knock on the place is the number of tables and chairs that they have set up. During a busy time, you feel somewhat sardined and relegated to listen to other tables' conversations. Getting in and out from the tables is not easy when the tables around you are occupied. But the seafood will (hopefully) keep you coming back!

For dessert we tried the ice cream game which was fun and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We never had to ask for anything. Chef Rock Moonen was there and gracious enough to come wet us and take a picture. Really great experience.

    As environmentally conscious pescetarians, it's important for us to find restaurants that offer sustainable fish options. RM Seafood offers a wonderful selection of starters and main dishes (we didn't try the sushi; next time!) and serves decent portions. Our side dishes were superb as were the cocktails. But best of all was the service! Our waiter was attentive and personable. He offered a quick and satisfying solution to our original drink order. In addition, the chef who served our meals hot from the kitchen was enthusiastic and informative about the food she was setting down in front of us (and she's got a smooth radio-friendly voice, which was very appealing)! Forget the Rio Seafood Buffet! We'll be back here next time we're in Vegas!

    We had lunch here before leaving Las Vegas. There is a lunch menu, but watch out for the recommendation of dinner items that are not on the lunch menu. The server did not mention the price and it was a shock. My companion had the cioppino, which was a pasta base instead of a stew. He was not told by the server that it is very spicy. It did have a good amount of fish in it. I had the recommended lobster Mac and cheese from the dinner menu. When we realized that we had been charged $49 for just the Mac and cheese with no bread or salad, it was disappointing. I'm not sure if we will eat here again.
