China Poblano - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
We started with ordering cocktails off the special menu, the hair of the dog was tasty and savory as described. I ordered the “lucky” lamb off the special menu. It was described as an entree and when it arrived (it took a really long time, I understand there are two kitchens but we both ordered from the Asian menu and my friend had already eaten his by the time mine arrived). The dish I ordered was lamb skewers with oat noodles. There were three small bites of lamb and about 12 gemelli pasta sized noodles in broth. I rarely complain about portions (and if I do, it’s because they’re ridiculously huge!) but this was not an entree portion. My friend ordered the Dan Dan Mian noodles that came in a huge bowl that was 1/4 full. I think the flavors at the restaurant were ok, but not stellar enough to warrant the minuscule portions. When the server asked how it was - I stated that it wasn’t what I expected - I received a shrug and the check. Hate to be negative but this is why locals don’t venture to the strip...the food is underwhelming and not worth the drive and paying to park.
It was our 20th wedding anniversary my husband and I chose to spend it in Vegas. As we were staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and seeing a show there that night, we chose to stay close. The decor was nice, my Mexican gin and tonic was great...and the service was prompt, attentive and very friendly.
We received excellent service from the hostess to our wait staff. We ordered the table side Guacamole, it was delicious. The ceviche was more like a poke dish, still tasty, just not the typical ceviche expected . We shared the assorted Sui Mei (came with 6 pieces) dish with a dipping sauce Over all we enjoyed the food, presentation..
Ugh! Worst meal of our trip. Indifferent waiter. Really, really lousy food: chips greasy, salsa passable, hand rolled dim sum utterly forgettable, ceviche looked like raw chicken...with none of the flavor. Avoid the flat gin cocktail! The second of two Vegas restaurants that made us feel like tourists stuck in a tourist trap. While the salt foam margaritas were excellent, after all that, who cares?
This was our second time choosing China Poblano for our date night. Considering all of the options in Vegas, we rarely go to the same place twice! The salt foam margarita is literally craveable. The first time we did the chef’s tasting menu and everything was perfect. This time we decided to be a little more adventurous. Unfortunately, not everything on the menu is equal. It was 50/50. Half of our choices were 10/10 for taste, presentation and creativity. The other half was disappointing, and not what we’ve come to expect from Jose Andres. Favorite items of the night were the nopales taco and the golden pigs. Most disappointing was the Mongolian beef. The jury is still out on the XO noodles. My husband described them as interesting and ended up finishing them. I took two bites and did not want to go back for more.
My wife and I had our favorite shared meal again here--When Pigs Fly dumplings, 20 vegetable fried rice with chicken and shrimp added, and classic margaritas. Everything was superb, as it has been in the past. We get extra soy sauce and hot sauce to spice things up. China Poblano is on our must-visit list for our annual week visit to Las Vegas.
The hostess was very rude and unfriendly! However, once we spoke to the manager, all got straightened out and the remainder of the experience was great! The food and waitress service were great. Tip: when making a reservation, specifically state you want a table “inside” the restaurant, not outside in the walkway. You’ll have a totally different and better experience inside. The ceviche without the tostada was amazing! The rest of the food played a very close second.
Service was really beyond neglectful. Food was just ok. We didn't receive plates to eat from for one course. On the next one we received the plates but no silverware. Finally gave up after asking for our waitress for 10 minutes as then the steak was cold. Asked for the bill at that point and didn't take the final course or dessert. No offer to reduce the bill for the food we never received or apologize for not actually providing utensils to eat. What we did eat was just average Mexican and Chinese food. With so many good restaurants at this hotel and surrounding hotels you should try someplace else.
Food was very good, fusion cuisine works in this place, unlike some others that try but don't meld the flavors as nicely. Portions decent sized, was able to share the dumplings and not feel like I shouldn't have! Service was efficient and friendly. Ambiance fun, would have preferred real chairs instead of the backless cubes we sat on but that's because I'm an old guy...
Once again, this place never disappoints. I love this place for some many reasons. The only thing I would change is to have more comfortable chairs/seating. I had the pleasure of meeting Edgar the manager this trip and he was a delight. He is so customer attentive, professional and easy to talk to. What a great menu this place has with fresh ingredients and innovative and vibrant cocktails. Don't miss this place in the beautiful Cosmopolitan. The staff here is some of the best I have experienced. Can't wait to go back!
We had our New Year’s Eve dinner here. I’m glad we made reservations, because the hostess was turning away those without reservations. We are from Texas, so we are accustomed to Tex-Mex cuisine. The restaurant’s salsa did not disappoint! It was smoky and delicious! We also enjoyed the Dim Sum. Friendly waitstaff and good value considering good prices in Vegas.
I wanted to like this place more than I did because the fusion of Asian and Latin food sounds great. But the items aren’t at all creative. They are standard Mexican or Chinese and not particularly well executed, at that.
I had chips and salsa, which were fine (its hard to mess that up). My dinner companion and I both ordered the ala carte tacos. They were tiny (seriously, the size of the palm of your hand) and not spectacular given the $6-$8 *per taco* pricetag.
It was crowded and loud and the vast majority of the seating is on ottoman-like stools that give you no place to hang a purse or lean back and relax.
For the money, there are plenty of other places that are better. Skip this place.
We chose Chinese dishes rather than Mexican. They were smaller tasting plates and they were delivered in the sequence we requested and at a sensible pace. The food was good if less well seasoned than in a traditional Chinese restaurant. The server was helpful and we enjoyed our meal. Its a noisy place and not suitable for all occasions but overall good value and I a happy to recommend it.
