Twist by Pierre Gagnaire - Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
Wow!Service, food, drinks, view.........it's got it all. Definitely recommend to anyone staying in Vegas. Can't say enough about it. If nothing else, go up for some drinks and just enjoy the view.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentWe thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Twist, we were given a fantastic table with a superb view! It was great to get away from the crowds of Vegas and you felt that you were somewhere special. The food combinations were superb and the presentation was everything you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Will definitely be going back5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for Foodie's...I was expecting an awesome dining experience and received it. If you are a foodie; then, try Twist. It's not the top of my list in terms of Vegas (Joel Robuchon is tops); but, it was on par with most and had something different to offer.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA Culinary MasterpieceIf you are considering a splurge LV meal @ Joel R. or Guy S., do not overlook Twist. This is an amazing culinary experience from the table-full of amuse bouche selections to kick off your adventure (popcorn foam!!) right through to the 6-plate (yes 6!) dessert course. Service is impeccable and helpful--they will do anything to please you. View is stunning. If you are dollar conscious, this is not the place for you. But if you appreciate culinary mastery, go to Twist.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely loved this place.Absolutely loved this place. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Service, view, and food top notch.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRefined palette requiredTwist was fantastic with one important caveat: The chef composes dishes that have a wide array of disparate elements which can make it a challenge to put together a tasting menu if one is "picky."
Fantastic restaurant otherwise.
Make sure to try the Firestarter at the Mandarin Bar before or after.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable experienceI chose the 4 course printemps menu. It was perfect.
Familiar flavors were enhanced in original ways: creamy popcorn, melting bacon, and new ones kept surprising me. The dinner was a pleasant journey in the realm of senses.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalA special occasion choice that exceeded all of our expectations!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe combinations of flavors was superb as was the food quality.

The wine list is impressive from boutique's to all the names you would expect. Great som!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in VegasThe finest restaurant in Las Vegas and one of the best in the USA, Twist continues to present the quintessential Gagnaire experience.

Highly recommended for a quiet romantic senic setting in busy Las Vegas.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant ! QuietBeautiful restaurant ! Quiet but still on the strip. Great food and atmosphere. Will definitely go again4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTwist remains my favoriteTwist remains my favorite foodie restaurant in Las Vegas. Chef Pierre comes in a few times a year to train the kitchen in a new menu and the spring offerings are, as usual, creative and exciting to the palate. Top-notch service and a beautiful room round out the experience, which is not cheap but well below what Joel Robuchon will set you back. Highly recommended.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second time goingThis is my second time going to Twist. The food was again unbelievable. The service for ordering was a little slow but after that, was outstanding as well. Met the Chef, Pierre Gagnaire. This is a must go to restaurant when in Las Vegas.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOMG the best experience iOMG the best experience i ve ever have. We were treated like royalty, service was incredible.

It is the most expensive meal i ve had but i will never regreat it.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the top restaurantsThis is one of the top restaurants in Las Vegas, without a doubt. The service is world class, the atmosphere and view is spectacular. Of course, the real star of the show is the food. Pierre Gagnaire is a top chef, who is always amazing us with new creations. On my recent visit, he had just introduced his spring menu. I loved the Loup De Mer and Dungeness Crab appetizer and the Dorado Royal and Langoustine main course. It is a must visit, whether you are visiting Las Vegas or live here.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat tasting menu for springgreat tasting menu for spring 2013 , never know vegetable ice cream could be that good. an eyeopening experience. and the egg white (soft melt in your mouth ) with morels was so mind blowing.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of VegasBest inventive cuisine in Las Vegas with professionnal and friendly staff.

The menu is innovative and provides a foodie with many things to satisfy their appetite. A magnificent wine list with wines to satisfy any pallet or budget.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne complaint Corkage feeOne complaint
Corkage fee of $95 is an intimidation factor and should be noted on all information about this restaurant.
I brought a high end Pinot Noir for a special occasion and was told at the front desk of their corkage fee.
I chose to open my wine and the waiter did a wonderful job serving it and looking after us.
However the sommelier later admited after looking at and tasting my wine that is was equal to and in my case better than many Pinot Noirs on his list.He said they would look into adding the wine in the future.He knew the level of wine that I brought in.
The corkage fee is pure intimidation and is shameful for a restaurant that is among a group of excellent restaurants in Las Vegas, not THE best in Las Vegas.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, attentive service.Excellent, attentive service. Food excellent, but not great - there are many better restaurants in North America at far better prices. Worth a visit but wouldnt return.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM4seerSuperb !
Everything you would want to Celebrate an Anniversary !!!
The welcoming service....the fine cuisine...!
We would like to go back in a "heartbeat' !2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent quality at high pricesTwist was wonderful. On the website review we saw it was a $$$ restaurant so normally would have expected to spend $50-75 or so per person. You will not get out of Twist without spending about $300. If that is fine with you then we would recommend it. The quality of the food is very good, although some of the dishes are difficult to even figure out what the flavor is as you will find some very strange pairings. The two course prix fixe menu (one app or dessert, and an entree pairing) is $95. As with some restaurants of this quality, in addition to your menu selections you get several small chef tastings along the way. The service was very good and the location at the upper floors of the Mandarin is a bonus.2/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe quality of the food wasThe quality of the food was outstanding and our server was very knowledgeable, his presence timely without being intrusive. The cuisine was imaginative - popcorn soup was on the menu for our visit - flavourful and well-presented. It is expensive, but we felt that compared to our expectations for a restaurant at this price point, Twist delivered good value.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great experienceIt was a great experience - we loved the food and we we go back for sure1/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a little disappointedWe were a little disappointed in our second visit to Twist. For our first visit in 2010 the $400-$500 price for two seemed fair for the set menu only. The revamped menu was still daring and interesting, but the price is now $400-$500 for a fairly standard 4 course ala carte for two. Definitely overpriced; although still interesting food, and fine service.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat special evening outGreat special evening out meal. Great for a couple dining out as well as a table of 6. Very flexible with diners who don't all want to order prix fixe or a la carte.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant in theAmazing restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental in Vegas and absolutely worth the $$$$. The food is over the top Iron Chef level and combined with the truly outstanding service made for a special meal experience. Can't wait to go back again.1/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dinner as always.Outstanding dinner as always. Beautiful views of strip. Excellent service.11/23/2012 12:00:00 AMThis place made me feel special.Everything was outstanding. This place is amazing. The best part is that they referred to me by my last name throughout the entire evening. Not just the person who sat me, but every single employee that talked to me. The food was amazing. The service top notch. I'll be in Vegas again and will go back for sure.10/4/2012 12:00:00 AM
