We really enjoyed the food and ambiance at this restaurant. Our only disappointment was the limited menu after 11pm. (We arrived after that time). We were really looking forward to the osso buco which wasn’t available on the limited menu. The menu is still 5 sides, so there were plenty of options. I wish the limited availability would have been known in advance. We look forward to returning at a time when we can experience the full length menu!

Old school Italian Restaurant will not disappoint. Amazing food and atmosphere with an amazing menu which makes it almost difficult to decide what to have. I celebrated my birthday here and could not have picked a better restaurant. I little off the beaten bath but so worth getting a cab or whatever to get your group down to for an amazing meal! Thanks for creating a great time and always an amazing meal!

Made reservations for 11:30 but got stuck in a parking garage on the strip. One member of our party arrived on time. He was seated and ignored. We called him from the parking nightmare to order appetizers. He did. And 45 minutes later we arrived / but not the appetizer he ordered for himself 20 minutes before he ordered ours. He got no refills / no attention whatsoever.

We arrived finally. Seated and ordered drinks. Nothing. Still waited. Finally someone brought them.

We ordered. Appetizers finally showed up. And dinner right behind them. Asked multiple times for bread.

The noise was unbelievable! And it wasn’t from the patrons. It was from the staff that apparently was off work and ready to party. Yelling, swearing and smoking up a storm. You couldn’t hear anything over them.

We’ve been to this restaurant many times and this has never happened. In fact we suggested it to the people from out of town that we met at the Buble concert that they have to go here. The perfect location after a crooner concert. Thank goodness they didn’t come with us - I would’ve been so embarrassed that I suggested it.

The Bootlegger Bistro was my Dad's favorite place while he was alive. Some of my family from Florida comes to Vegas around this time of year so we've been going to this fine establishment at least once a year. I myself like to stop by every now and then when I'm on that side of town.

New to Las Vegas and was told about Bootleggers. Reserved a table and showed up at the reservation time. Taken right to our table. Service was great and very professional. Many selections to select from. Our meals were extremely tasty.
Had an excellent meal and enjoyed the pianist. Very good and entraining. Was a little pricy but food was excellent. Sides and wine was overpriced . Nine dollars for a basic glass of white wine. My wife loved the ravioli with meat sauce.

Always a great choice for Italian food. The wait staff is some of the best in the city. When I say wait staff I mean everything from the warm greeting when you arrive, have your water always being checked by Miguel and removing the plates from the table as soon as you finish. You can pay less at other Italian restaurants, but having live entertainment is worth the extra money.

I have been here many times but this time I was disappointed in the food. I had the lasagne and I've never had a piece that had a piece of cheddar cheese on it. It got cold really fast and was just a hard mess on top. The little breads they serve were good. It's very expensive. I would have had a better meal for less money at Maggiano's.

WE had a wonderful experience. Our waiter Alex was gracious and helpful with suggestions. My filet mignon was able to be cut with a butter knife (and it was medium well!) The Lasagna was fantastic. Then we had great seats for the Fat City Horns at the adjoining Copa Room. Put this on your bucket list!

My sister came into Vegas on a late flight and needed good food. We arrived 20 minutes earlier than our reservation and were seated quickly. Our server was very helpful and attentive and his recommendation of the Lemon Drop martini was a hit. Our food was delicious as always and we were so happy to have made it before the piano player stopped for the evening.
If you haven’t been to the Bootlegger, drop everything and go. You won’t be disappointed.

We had a party of 8 and were celebrating my Father's 86th birthday. We also requested a table near the piano and were pleasantly accommodated. (Online request)
Our waiter (cody) was amazing in every way possible. He was spot on and took care of us all as if we were family. The musician sang a Frank Sinatra birthday song for Dad and he really made our evening extra special. The food, as always was delicious and HUGE appreciation to Cody for going above and beyond.
We will be back soon.
