    Our wait person...Liz.....started with a cold and distance persona....she didn't introduce herself until asked what her name was, plus she failed to go over the menu. Only after we asked specific questions about menu items did she bother to orally review items on the menu.After our orders were brought to the table we had to flagg down other wait personnel clearing tables for pepper, from the beginning she started out wrong by getting the drink order incorrect.The restaurant was sparsley filled, she could have been much more attentive, rather then her drive- by style of service she provided us.

    We enjoyed the ambiance and service in the restaurant. We had a reservation for 9pm and were seated promptly. Our waiter took our drink order and pizza appetizer right away. I ordered the chicken piccata entree. Unfortunately by 1030pm my entree did not arrive. We decided to cancel the entree and went to Tap bar for dinner.

    Food was prepared and presented well. Waitress was very attentive and quick to note each food and extra wants to serve our meal perfectly. My husband's first time here and was quite pleased with the portions plus tastiness. Only downside was the fishy smell upon entering the restaurant. May have been the raw seafood bar upfront but that's no excuse for an establishment such as Wolfgang Puck; especially inside MGM Casino.

    Are we in a casino restaurant? It is world's away from the casino floor! Ambiance is sophisticated and sedate. Seasonal menu offers unique dishes, halibut was tender inside, slightly crisp on exterior. Chicken parmesan was exceptional. Butternut squash soup was smooth, slightly spicy and memorable. Will definitely return!

    Service at this restaurant is always excellent (and tolerant of the diner-gambler). We enjoyed an excellent bottle of white wine recommended by the Sommelier, who stopped to chat about some wine history. We both started with a tasty and hearty squash puree soup, perfect for the season. My rib-eye was perfectly prepared. The flavors of my husbands chicken parmesan were outstanding (his dish was plenty large to feed 2).

    The chicken parmasian tasted like the frozen type you buy at the grocery store. The sauce tasted from a jar. This was also the findings of my boyfriend. The staff were tired and didn't seem to care. Which concerns me of how the staff a treated.. I will not spend my money there again. Very disappointed.

    This was our first visit to Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina and we were impressed and very satisfied. Albeit was a Restaurant Week special that brought us here, this is the reason for events such as this, to get the folks in to see what these eateries are all about. We were very impressed from the moment they opened the door until we walked out the same door after a delicious meal. The staff from the greeters to the waiters and waitresses were attentive and engaging. We will be paying a return visit.

  • Sneaky upselling

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    The food was great, and we enjoyed the service until we receiving (and being surprised by) the bill. Every one of our five member party had an unanticipated charge - without exception. This was due to the server asking "do you want the broccolini or potatoes with that?" or "did you want the side of spaghetti or the spinach?" She framed the question as if they were included sides, but we were charged for every single one, which came out to an extra 35 dollars. Not the end of the world, but not exactly appreciated either. The dinner was better than expected, but underhanded upselling left a bad taste in our mouths.

    Attended during Detroit Restaurant week with a 3 course menu. I had the salmon which was dry and overcooked and my husband had the flat iron steak, which was dry and overcooked. He ordered the steak to be cooked medium. The server was great! Disappointed, expected more from the Wolfgang Puck brand. Afterwards the MGM Grand had a performance from a Motown band which was awesome. The night was not a total disappointment.

The service was exceptional; friendly staff and very attentive. The food was exceptional, I enjoyed my entre and the cheesecake with fresh blueberries to finish was divine. I will definitely return and tell others about my experience.

    Food was excellent but services was not. People that were seated way after me order was taken first. We even had to ask for our bread basket that everyone else around us was getting. Very disappointed in the service. Just because I do not drink alcohol does not mean I deserve bad service or that I am a bad tipper.

    A group of 6 went to Wolfgang Pucks for Restaurant Week. Overall it was a nice experience, but seems to have fallen down a bit from our last visit. The restaurant looked a bit "tired". One of our guests felt the table was "sticky" and the carpet needed a good cleaning. Several of our group ordered the gnocchi for the first course and felt it was over cooked. For the entree the Flat Iron Steak (skirt steak) was served as a whole piece of meat and not sliced and although flavorful, it was difficult to cut. The chicken parm was excellent; tender and well seasoned. The fettuccini dish was very flavorful, but almost too rich. Diners felt all the entrees were a bit skimpy. Mascarpone cheesecake excellent.Maybe Wolfgang needs to make a visit.

    I had never been to Wolfgang Puck's prior to Saturday evening, one of the main reasons I made reservations here was because it was participating in Detroit Restaurant Week. It was a amazing experience, Our server was fantastic, our food was awesome. I would recommend the Chicken Parmesan with the Marscapone Polenta. It was to die for.

    I went during Detroit Restaurant Week. It was my first time trying this place. I had the gnocci for my appetizer. It was an average dish. I was expecting a bit more. I had a Mushroom Fetuccine dish for my entree which was good. For dessert, I had a Marscopone cheescake which was tasty. The overall mean was good. My cocktail was excellent! You have to try the Peaches and Herb Martini. It had a great peach flavor with tiny bits of mint...really good!!

    The restaurant did not honor my Open Table reward certificate at all. The chicken alfredo dish was good but quite oily. The $10 tomato soup was very good but not worth $10...It was tomato soup for goodness sake! The service was very good...it certainly is a team effort...everyone hustled...dishes were coming out the kitchen expeditiously.

    I truly enjoyed my dining experience. The quiet dining room added ambience to the experience. I was alone and was seated in a both and felt very comfortable except the table was a little high. The Grilled Salmon was wonderful and the soup of the day(Tomato) excited my mouth. All the staff was wonderful and stopped by to ask if I needed anything or just how are you this evening? I will return again probably next month for my birthday and recommend the restaurant to my friends.

    Went to dinner with my grandmother for my birthday. It took them close to 3 hours for the meal. We had gotten an appetizer, salad, and entrees. The appetizer (calamari) was fantastic, and out within 10 minutes, the salads followed about 5 minutes after the completion of the appetizer. Then the wait started. An hour and 20 minutes wait on the entrees. The server kept saying the kitchen was backed up. However, we we certain that the order was lost. There was no visit from the kitchen manager or an apology given. The food arrived hot, and cooked to specifications (I had a rib eye steak med. rare, she had the chicken). Taste was good, but again, the wait was atrocious. Would probably visit again, as long as time permitted.
