While I would recommend this restaurant there was an incident that shouldn't happen at this level. I decided to order the Sea Bass. The server went on to tell me how it was her favorite thing on the menu. She raved about it. Only to return 10 minutes later and tell me that they were out of it for the evening. This was at an 8 PM seating? Kind of a rookie mistake. In addition we sat for quite a while at the table before the server greeted us in the first place.

Just horrible service and sub-par food. We arrived on time, were told to wait. When we sat down by finace order a glass of wine, I ordered an old fashioned. Her wine came quickly. My drink was nowhere to be found. We decided to order anyways, starting with a shrimp cocktail. Then we both did the Valentine's day set menu and a half lobster, which we were offered cold or grilled. We chose grilled. The shrimp cocktail came out, still no actual cocktail so I had to cheers her wine with a shrimp. We finished the shrimp cocktail and my drink finally showed up. 25 minutes later. The waitress apologized, said there was ONE bartender for the whole room. I said in that case, please put in my next drink so it will be ready in 25 minutes. She came back with attitude and a second drink in about 1 minutes, so know I'm double fisting. Classy. Our food came out, but that was a mess. My steak, ordered medium rare was cold and tough. My fiance's fish was overcooked. The lobster was nowhere to be found. When we finally waived our server down, she disappered for a while and finally came back with it. Cold. We told her we wanted in grilled and she goes "Oh, it only comes cold." What???? At this point we were over it, told her to send the lobster back and to just bring our check and take everything away. Totally disfucntional service and staff and sub bar food.

The food and service here are superb. The pop tarte flambé is not to be missed as a starter. The rack of lamb and filet were outstanding in both flavor and presentation.

What is disappointment!! The food was barely OK—nothing special. The duck was so tough that we had trouble cutting it with a steak knife. The service was chaotic and inattentive—we ordered a bottle of wine and after the initial pours the bottle disappeared until mid-meal when I had to find the wine steward and request that our glasses be refilled. Michael Mina should be ashamed to have his name associated with this place.

This was the only dinner of three in Las Vegas where the experience was truly about the food and dining (as opposed to lackadaisical servers rushing you out). It was also a bit quieter than most. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our waitress, Andrea, was above and beyond. The octopus was very good (a few bites with too much char). The lobster bisque one of the best I’ve had (and I’ve lived in New England!). My partner’s steak cooked to perfection. You’re guaranteed to find a wine that suits you and they have a most impressive cognac slelction.

I love this place. They have selections so I can eat the way I like to eat. I love French and this is an excellent take on classic French. The atmosphere is wonderful. It is like a large Vegas brasserie. Beautiful bar area as well. Staff is efficient and knowledgeable. They are also extremely friendly. Great drinks. I ordered a perfect Manhattan and it was spot on. Terrific baguette with excellent butter with some salt to start. The west coast oysters were delicious and briny. The endive Caesar salad is an interesting take on a classic with lump king crab and a lemon dressing. I had the charcuterie plate which I love. Wonderful salami, prosciutto and duck rilletes with a nice pate. Excellent grilled bread and other accompaniments. Ask for the fries extra crispy. They are wonderful served with mayo. All in all a wonderful experience. Someplace I can go to and even sit alone and watch the other people come and go.

I loved the look of this restaurant and have enjoyed other Michael Mina restaurants, but was concerned about all the puff pasty - I’m usually not a fan. WOW! We had the beef Wellington for two with truffles potatoes. It was PHENOMENAL. It could easily feed 4. The pasty was amazing. The beef perfection. Those truffles potatoes were the best I’ve ever had. I also had the endive crab Caesar - amazing. The wine sommelier was so helpful and knowledge. She picked a perfect bottle within our price range. I really cannot say enough good things about this place - just go!

Excellent food and service as always. Even though the restaurant was packed due to conference-goers on expense accounts, the service and pacing of the meal was still executed well. Every dish we tried was worthy of a repeat order.

Came with a group of 9 for dinner and no one was exactly happy. The service was slow and our waiter did not seem interested in our table. We had the bread and butter and the butter was salty. We ordered soups with dinner and the lobster bisque and onion soups were incredibly salty. A few people had steaks and some had the sea bass and it was all salty. The only person satisfied with their food ordered the chicken. If you are a fan of salt or just ordering chicken then this is the place for you.

What a shame........beautiful restaurant but the noise was so bad we couldn't hear the person across the table. By the time we left I was exhausted from yelling instead of talking in a normal voice. We pulled up an app that measure noise level and found it to be above what OSHA would consider safe for employees to be in for an entire shift.
I know that they have lots of business as all the nice restaurants in vegas do, but I will not go back to them.

Food is fantastic. But eating anywhere great in Vegas is a pricey affair. 1 app 3 dinners and a bottle of wine $450. The good will it bought was priceless. Do try the steak tartare. It’s Superb

Oscar the server is the worst server ever. He did not add to the experience. In fact, he took away from the experience. Party of 3 on 1/18 for 1pm brunch.

Example
Oscar: you ready to order?
Me: yes. I’ll have the French toast.
Oscar: you want to add bacon?
Me: yes if it is the double cut bacon ($13) *while pointing to it on the menu*
Oscar: that’s what I said.... in a very annoyed tone.

Ok. My bad? Just wanted to confirm.

Then my friend was torn between two drinks and so which one is better. He kept telling us to get the endless mimosa. My friend didn’t want a mimosa. In CA, one person can’t have two drinks. Since this is Vegas he asked Oscar if he can have multiple drinks since he was torn and wanted to try both. Oscar went on this huge rant about how security is watching us and if we have more than one drink security will come to our table and his job is on the line.

Ok bro. Chill. We will just order one Bloody Mary.

Then he disappeared. He was talking to all the other tables but not coming to us. My friend wanted to order a second drink so I flagged him down. We saw the drink come up on the service well at the bar. It sat there (we timed it) for 14 minutes. No one else ran it out. The bartender didn’t tell someone to run it out. Oscar was too busy talking to his other tables.

Ok. We are done. Check please. I gave him 15% for the terrible service. The little machine printed out a slip and he threw it on the table because he saw the low tip I gave him. And walked away. Didn’t say anything.

Come to Bardot but avoid Oscar.

I’ve never felt so ignored at a restaurant. I understand that it was busy, but coming for a celebratory brunch after getting engaged, my partner and I hoped to have a nice meal and bottomless rosé. We were sat in the corner right beside the server station where there was constant banging of drawers and cutlery. We waited 10 minutes just to get menus. After ordering appetizers and champagne our food came before we received the champagne from the cart that was right behind us at the server station. The server didn’t ask if we wanted anything else (we hadn’t ordered mains yet) but took our menus. We had to tell him we were ready to order more. After receiving our mains from a food runner I had to ask for missing cutlery, and the server never came back to ask if everything was ok, or if we wanted more champagne. We had to wave over a food runner to take our empty plates, and didn’t see our server until he wordlessly dropped off our check without asking if we wanted anything else or if we enjoyed anything. It was the most disappointing experience in our trip to Las Vegas.

What otherwise would have been 5 star because the food was excellent, was marred by an upsell on the wine. Choosing a certain wine we were told that they were out and they would find us a comparable. It was 25.00 more and wouldn’t price match. Take it off of the wine list then! Not the price but the principle. They ended up finding the original requested wine after all. On a positive note the onion soup was excellent as was the beef carpaccio. I would return!

The food was great but Oscar cut us off on unlimited Rose🤷‍♀️we were not loud or belligerent. We were staying at the ARia. And he cut us off before an hour..... it’s brunch. The manager made things right but jeez. Went again today. Different waiter better experience so today I would give it 5 stars.

Most of the food was actually quite good. My wife had the pork chop and a few hours later, got quite ill and spent the night getting sick. Clearly wasn't a good night for us. Was quite an expensive meal, so that didn't help the situation either.

The quality of food has decreased compared to my previous visits. The lobster was over cooked. The cream brulee was definitely not the quality that I expected, it was too watery. The service was great however.

This has been my 5th or 6th time at Bardot over the past couple of years and it was my worst experience. Bardot used to be solid in every aspect of the dining experience, but it just didn’t feel the same this past weekend. The waiter seemed to be always in a rush, with not a lot of tables to wait on. He splashed a mimosa on my girlfriend’s face and did not offer any other help, other than a quick sorry. The food seemed to not have the same care as it once did. Hopefully it was just this one time, BUT I do see that Mina’s restaurant’s do seem to lower the bar after they’ve been open for a couple of years.
