Overall our dining experience was good but I was rather disappointed in my meal. My salmon was horribly over cooked....dry and crispy. I was dining with friends that we had not seen in a while and I did not wish to upset the mood by sending my food back or complaining. The spaghetti w/ marinara that was served with the Salmon was bland and uninspired. I did enjoy the bed of sauted spinach the salmon was perched on. I did not ask the other diners how their meals were since I had very little positive to say about mine. On a positive note....the garlic bread rolls and sauce served before the meal were tasty. Sadly, I cannot recommend this restaurant.
Delicious. Never been disappointed with the food or service.
Had a great dinner Monday night, then went to the Copa room adjacent and saw a concert. After concert went into see the Open Mic singing. Lots of fun. Love the ambiance too. Waiters and bus guys are very nice.
Had a great experience. The food was delicious and and our server Eddie was great.
Incredible Italian atmosphere. Definitely a place to go for great dinner!
We loved it, great food and service
Good food and a great show with Jimmy Hopper in The Copa Room
Very busy; so, service was slow. Piano player does great job
The live entertainment on Monday night open mic was really phenomenal. Staff, energy and food were great. Im glad we saw this gem on Anthony Bourdain's show...getting off the strip was totally worth it to come to this place!
The Bootlegger always delivers with atmosphere, service and the food. Especially the food. The same family has been in the restaurant business in Las Vegas for a very long time and always top notch. Manicotti made with crepes, not noodles, layered lasagna, garlic knots with Marina sauce are our favorites.
Fabulous as always. We love coming to Bootlegger for any occasion.
Fantastic experience, we had friends over who were here for the MWC basketball tournament. The food was just awesome, lasagna, spaghetti and manicotti were all just fabulous! The waiter was terrific, a no nonsense older gentleman who knew how to take care of his customers - great red suspenders! We’ll be back again - soon!
Excellent quick and efficient service by Sean. Food was excellent. Only tried vegetarian options since it was lent. Looking forward to trying other menu options. We have passed this restaurant on our 30 plus visits to Vegas and glad we finally stopped in.
This restaurant was recommended by a friend and found it to be just what stated it would be. Waiter was very friendly and food was excellent. I found it to be a bit noisy to where couldn't hear the harp player but I know Italian places are noisy. Overall a great experience. Would recommend and go again.
The scallopini di Lorraine was absolutely delicious. Fantastic service, live music, generous portions, good wine. Loved it!
Just delicious, excellent house wine, loved the bread puffs with marinara served immediately, pasta dishes excellent and large portions we had take home. Vegetable side just perfect.
I love bootleggers! Every time I’m in Vegas I go there at least once
You may want to inform the entertainer to tone it down a little. We found it was difficult to enjoy table conversation because of the pianist. When he first started it was dining music and we enjoyed hearing how beautiful he played. But, it seemed as the evening progressed, he kept trying to over play the conversation level of the restaurant patrons, and by mid evening, it got very loud. Otherwise, everything was great!
This is the place for good Italian food in Las Vegas and has been for a long time. Our favorite place to eat and drink.
Great waiter and even better food.
James was an excellent waiter throughout the night. He knew it was our first time there and made sure that we had a memorable time. The food was delicious along with the ambience and entertainment. We will definitely go back!
We really enjoyed Bootlegger. The wines were reasonably priced as wS the food—especially compared to the high-roller casino/hotels. Our meal was flawless and I. Spite of how busy they were on a Sunday evening, our service was excellent and friendly. It is just a short drive from the strip and it is refreshing g to be away from the casinos.
Wonderful!!! Great food at reasonable prices.Excellent service !!
To close to the music to talk
We are so happy we tried this place! It has the old Las Vegas feel and the Italian was authentic with a wide selection of entrees. The ambiance was absolutely amazing and our server was the best! He made our meal even more special! We had a surprise as a harpist was playing near our table, very good! We celebrated a birthday with family and some friends who were all very impressed with Bootleggers. We dined during the week and it was busy, so book your reservation in advance!
We love going to open mike night with Kelly Clinton but we have never tried their Pizza before, we did and it was great. You have to make your reservations early on Monday or you don't get a table.
Everything was great! The food was great! The service was great! The harpist was outstanding!
Our server was fantastic. Great personality and very attentive to our table without being pushy or overbearing. The food was excellent as always. The Bootlegger is a nice spot for great food at a good price point.
The restaurant indeed makes you feel go a little bit back in time, from the servers to the food, everything was great! Plus the live music is such a great assest to the already romantic ambience! We'll definitely comeback!
Love this place, it is a must every visit to Vegas!
Off the strip and a great place.This was our 3rd and 4th times visiting.Went valentines night and when leaving we were given a coupon for 50 percent off our food bill next visit,went right back next evening.Food was outstanding and service excellent.pasta cooked perfect,the minestrone soup the best ive ever had and the spumoni was homemade.wowowowowo is all i can say
The atmosphere once you walk in, was one of nostalgia! Then once you are seated the service is phenomenal! The wait staff at night are great (James is The Man)! Then the highlight of the night... the food! Best lasagna n fettuccine Alfredo! So creamy n buttery, n you can't forgery the garlic knots! (Order a side of Alfredo sauce...it's a must). Overall, wonderful experience!
Great food, service and atmosphere! Loved the harpist, he was amazing!
My husband and I have been to The Bootlegger several times over the years and, as usual, the food did not disappoint at all. It was our server this time that was very frustrating. He was certainly nice enough and he started out on the right foot. He was attentive and willing to answer questions about their menu we were first arrived but as soon as the restaurant started to fill up the slightest bit, we lost most of his assistance. Couples that came in AFTER us, ordering basically the same things, were getting their food long before we did.
When he DID wander by, he kept suggesting the wine list and alcoholic drinks but since I suffer from a liver disease I NEVER drink alcohol. Tho I did not explain my condition to him, I felt like one polite and clear 'no thank you' should be enough. It was not. He either forgot or offered it repeatedly to placate us.
This will not stop us from returning but the night we were there, the evening before Valentine's Day, was important to us and the parts of our dinner that were lacking was very unsatisfying.
Was good 😀
Simply put, one of the best italian meals i have had in quite sometime. My bro agreed 100%! Service was superior. Can’t wait to go back!!
Great food and service, ambiance and entertainment superb!
Great place to celebrate birthdays! Great Atmosphere!
Excellent Tasting Food!!!
This was my first time there, took my Girlfriend there for her birthday. The total experience was outstanding, excellent customer service, staff, the food was amazing, great prices and we will look forward to going again!!!
