    The filet mignon and shrimp tacos were fabulous and a generous serving at a reasonable price. The calamari was some of the best I have tasted, crispy with little grease. And the surprise of cotton candy at the end of the meal for a birthday celebration was adorable and imaginative. Thanks!

    We arrived at 5:50 for a 6:00 pm reservation. Hostess wasn't there and was short with us when we said something about having to wait. Waiter was very friendly but our food was much slower than those around us. Bartender and another customer were having a nearby discussion about rudeness due to wheeling a stroller thru the bar. Shame the customer seems secondary. About the food, Arancini was extremely bland and we sent it back. Short Ribs and Red Curry were excellent as was the bread. I'm recommending this place for the food, but it could be way better.

    I've been to Simon 5 times in the last 2 years. This time, as with every time, the food is great and the service is inefficient and indifferent at best. I keep coming back because I love the tempura Brussels sprouts and the sushi. So, if you can be relaxed about the service, then I do recommend the food.

  • Not unless it's Sunday Brunch
    Carsan1974
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I usually love Simon at Palms Place. Have been several times, however, it was for Sunday Brunch, not just a normal daily breakfast. Sunday Brunch is what Simon is know for so I figured another day would be just as good, with a little less fanfare possibly. We went on a Saturday morning around 9:30 (soon after they open), and the service was terrible. It was clear they were completely understaffed. It took forever just to get coffee. After about 35 minutes of minimal interaction with any wait staff, and still no food, I sought out the manager to discuss our situation. He offered no solution and barely apologized. I was excited to take friends who hadn't been to this restaurant before, but highly disappointed in this experience.

    My chicken dinner and that of my quests from Australia was embarrassingly bad on every level. The hamburger was "off" and the fries were taseless and hard like the chicken. Even the strawberry salad was wilted. The breads were just ok but the steak was good.

    We love the sushi and the tempura Brussels sprouts. But they have great steaks and other things if someone in your group doesn't like sushi. It's a bit out of the way in Palms Place, but you can usually find a table.

  • Simon- My Great Escape
    VegasDiner
    Dined on 9/30/2014
    Simon is the restaurant I go to escape to another place. I always request a window table to sit by the ever rippling pool waters, yet have a view of the fireplace inside. The bar and the main restaurant have a blend of relaxing yet alive atmosphere. The wine selection is extensive. I have tried almost everything on the select menu of Simon's creative and delicious fish and poultry dishes, steaks and chops, Mom's meatloaf, and the sushi chef's wonderful creations. It is all excellent, but my best escape is a martini and the crispy tuna sushi.

    This seemed to be a smaller quaint restaurant and has a nice romantic atmosphere. Disappointed though with limited food on the menu.....lots of sushi for those who love this. Otherwise, the menu is somewhat limited. If you ask for different selections of fish, they will provide filet cooked way you like. Margharita pizza and fresh steamed vegetables good choice here. Good wine list as well and service was really excellent (Steve L.) It has limited outdoor dining located around pool area (it seemed) as too much wind to eat outdoors during this visit. They can accomodate smaller groups such as wedding party in isolated area as we saw a group there celebrating.....Nice!

    We went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We we promptly greeted and seated upon arrival. The hostess recommended a few dishes and we took her advice. I had the crispy sesame rice roll (aka Simon roll) and my husband tried the short ribs. We also tried the spicy shrimp appetizer. Everything was delicious. The timing of our courses was very good. The appetizer was a very large portion and came with green apple slaw. The Simon roll was perfect, as always. The short ribs were fall-apart tender and accompanied with parmesan grits and tempura corn. Nice-sized portions- we took boxes home. And then dessert....the staff made us a dessert plate especially celebrating our Anniversary. Great experience.

    The food and service at Simon have been consistently high quality for the past 5 years that I have been eating there. This last visit was great as I entertained some key customers and the staff was perfect for the business dinner. Great selection of wines also helped make it a fun evening. I would highly recommend Simon for anybody looking to enjoy both great food and a unique off strip experience when in Las Vegas. Save room for desert but don't miss out on the Tuna Dynamite.

    Simon was a pleasant surprise. While the service was just average, the food made up for it tenfold. Interesting offerings not seen around on most menu offerings. I especially loved the Lobster Risotto Cakes..a great side to go along with my perfectly cooked boneless Ribeye. A strange setting overlooking an empty swimming pool, but the interior of the restaurant was warm and pleasant.

    We had heard a lot about it so we had to try it. The staff was friendly and somewhat attentive. The food was okay, but nothing to get terribly excited about. Its just above a buffet and a little pricy for the selections. The only way to get your money's worth would be to graze for hours. It was very loud so a little tough to carry on a conversation. Best part...all you can drink champagne.

At the end of the meal, they brought us complimentary champagne and a nice dessert. Greta touch! My only complaint was that our meals were served like warm.

    I've been here for a business dinner and thoguht it was great, however when I came in for a business lunch, the service was absoluetly terrible. It took 30 min for our watiter to come to our table to ask for drinks then we kept having to track him down for him to take our food order. The sushi was sub-par, very plain and boring. The description of the speciality rolls sounded great but when they came out they weren't good at all. My 5 year old could have made better sushi rolls than that. Overall it was rather embarassing business meal where most of the conversation focused on how terrible the service was and how the food was under average. Never again will I take any clients back here.

    Simon's is still a very good place to go for brunch, but I found the food portions a little less generous, and the bar price is too high. If it is supposed to be a brunch and the only two offerings are Bloody Marys and Mimosa, then I believe they should be included in the over all price. I had one Bloody Mary and the bar tab was $20.50, a bit excessive for my mind. Over all still a great place to take a friend .

    The food was amazing, and love the quirky titles for each group of menu items. Best Chicken and Gravy! The French toast and waffles were fun!! And of course, the cotton candy at the end. the price for bottomless mimosa is a great deal as well, since one costs you $12.00. We are locals and will definitely be back !!

    We first had a drink at the bar. The servers were friendly, responsive and great to talk to and all drinks were mixed perfectly. Dinner was amazing. The menu has so many choices we will have to return in order to try more of them. The wedge salad was an interesting and better take on a classic. The trout and the pork chop were outstanding. We will definitely return.

    We do not understand why service was so slow because the place was almost empty. One of the first things the waiter asked us was if we had someplace to be. We told him yes, and then he completely ignored our time limitations. We gave ourselves an hour and a half to eat, and we were there two hours and had to beg for the check. Food was outstanding as usual though.

    It's a shame that Simons has evolved to just a place to eat. Mothers Day brunch was disorganized, the person acting as the manager didn't manage and we even had to clear our own table since they stuck us in a side room with a view of the AC unit and forgot about all four tables back there. This was our 5th Mothers Day in row there but was now our last.
