    Our waitress Bri made our experience less than enjoyable. She never smiled and was not attentive at all. She definitely did not want to be at work. We also said we had to birthdays to celebrate and they were not acknowledged.

    First time at The Bootlegger. My wife and I were celebrating both of our birthdays. The service was great. Our server, Brianna, and the other wait staff did a fantastic job. The food was excellent. My wife had the Carbonara which she very much enjoyed enjoyed. I went with the 16oz Ribeye, cooked exactly how I ordered it. After this dining experience we will definetely be going back to try other entree items.

    We come to Vegas 5 or 6 times a year and stay near the restaurant, but I've never been.. Wait decided to go for Valentine's Day dinner and it was the best decision We have made. The staff is all incredible, the food is very good. They had a man playing the harp was amazing. Next time I come back to vegas I will definitely visit the restaurant again.

    What a hidden gem! The “seafood fra diabolo” a house specialty, was delicious! My husband had the Salsiccia Al Alberto and really liked it. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. We’re definitely returning and recommending the restaurant to friends. It’s best to make reservations because they’re quite busy.

    Wonderful restaurant with a lot of history. We were seated in bar area which was a little noisier but we still were able to have conversation. The food was excellent! We order stuffed mushrooms to start, they were absolutely the best I’ve had anywhere. For the main meal we order Osso Bucco and the Chicken filled with cheese and salami. Both were delicious, we did family style which. They had no issue with doing this. Will definitely be back.

    We love The Bootlegger and show up for the food, the ambiance, and the Harpist, Mariano. The waiter, Cody is outstanding and the food yummy. We ask to be seated near to the Harpist Mariano and our request has always been fulfilled. We have introduced Bootlegger to many friends and family members over the years, beginning with the location on Tropicana . Thank you.

    I arrived a few mins before my reservations time, I told the hostess of the reservation and she looked it up and confirmed then sat me in the bar area instead of the dinning room area. The whole point of booking a reservation is to sit in the dinning room where the music is not at the gaming bar area. My friend and I asked our sever if it was possible to move to the dinning room to enjoy the music and he said that area is for people with reservations which I stated that I had made a reservation but didn’t want to make a big deal about it since we had already ordered. My only other complaint was that when the food came out, it was luke warm like it had been sitting out for a while. Both mine and my friends meal was like this. My friend even said her’s felt a little cold to the touch. Maybe they were very busy at 5pm but with the price of the meals, you should be severed a hot fresh plate. We ate our food and ordered desert which the food overall tasted pretty good despite not being hot and the desert was great.
