Zuma Restaurant - Las Vegas
The food was just ok. Not impressed...at all.
Everything was perfect
very overpriced but the rent at the crystal shops must be terribly high!
To begin, I should give credit to the manager of the restaurant for being extremely apologetic and doing all the right things a manager should do in the event of a massive fail.
I am a vegetarian and specifically asked about the sauce prior to ordering and when my meal was delivered to me. (I had ordered the Arancini). My colleague had ordered a salad without the goat cheese.
Sure enough, my colleague found goat cheese in the salad. And I found meat in my sauce.
As I said, the manager and server were both extremely apologetic. They comped dessert and added a discount to the overall check. Had I not asked multiple times about the sauce, I could understand the issues happening. The fact that I did was simply unacceptable.
My bigger issue, frankly, is that I find all the Wolfgang Puck restaurants to be a pale shadow of what they used to be. From the lack of the signature tropical ice tea to a very limited menu that lacked the creativity of what I've come to expect of the Wolfgang Puck brand. This is not just directed to this menu, but to other Puck restaurants, especially the airport outlets, which of course, won't be as high-end as the restaurants but just don't seem to reflect the high-quality ingredients that they did in previous years.
Again, kudos to the staff to doing all the right things to try to recuperate from the incident during my visit, but I won't be returning.
New Years Eve
The day before Christmas Eve, and we made a resize, but it wasn't necessary at 6:30. Try the amazing starter soup: butternut squash. Caesar salads relish. Chicken Parmigiana enough for two to share; it was divine. The fishes, salmon and sea bass, also lovely. You're sitting in the Crystals Shops, attached to the Aria, and you'll overlook the mall. It was easy to chat, as the ambient noise is low. Our server was great, and present. She poured wine and checked on us lots. Not intrusively. I would definitely return.
Not as good as before
Food was wonderful and it was a great experience. Waiter was knowledgeable and came to the table multiple times throughout the dinner.
We stopped to eat before a Vegas Golden Knights game. My wife requires gluten free and with reviews we read it sounded like there were numerous options. But once we went through the menu with the server there were very few . She decided to have the Cioppino which she usually loves. The dish came with clams, mussels, shrimp, calamari, and branzino fish. In general it was tasteless and not filling at all. I had the Osso Bucco and it was pretty good.
We have eaten at other Wolfgany Puck restaurants in Las Vegas and they have been very good (Spago, Lupo and Wolfgang Puck in MGM Grand). Not so much for Cucina. We will not go back.
This is a hidden gem located in the Crystal shopping mall. We were at the Aria and wanted a nice lunch on a Saturday, but most restaurants were serving brunch (which we didn't want). So I quickly checked open table and saw this was close by and available. I figured it would at least be "decent" if it was a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. We were blown away but the quality and the service. We started with a perfectly cooked pizza and then a whole branzino for the table. The fish was equal to any in Italy. It came with broccolini and roasted potatoes, all family-style, and enough for the 5 of us. Lucky us, the Executive Chef came out to filet and serve the fish. We were celebrating our son's 25th birthday and before we could even think about ordering a dessert they brought out FOUR desserts (mini cannolli, ricotta cheesecake, tiramisu, and "to-die -for" donuts) plus limoncello for all. Everything was delicous and so good that we came back the next day and ordered all new items, equally as wonderful. The wine list was decently priced, especially for Vegas.
I've been eating at Cucina for a long time, and while it seemed to be having difficulties with food, service and generally getting it together over the past several months, there was improvement this visit. Our server seemed stretched thin - we experienced long absences between his visits - but he was attentive when he was able to stop by. The food was improved. Glad to see this upswing.
Great meal and friendly service.
While we do not like having to pay for the standard bread and olive oil, the upgrade including olive tapenade is delicious.
Food was great, service was, however, ‘lackluster’.
Wolfgang Puck never disappoints!! Everything was delicious! I could have licked the bowl clean that the Butternut Squash soup was in!
Food was quite good, but the service (or complete lack thereof) took away from the experience.
Service was spotty, paying extra for bread was not usual in any other restaurant I’ve ever been too. Food was average and overpriced for quality.
Everything was lovely except paying $8 for a plain tea.
From the pictures you cannot tell this restaurant is in a mall. That was disappointing. The food was good. Not mind blowing but solid Italian food.
I didn’t like the food at all. Chicken Parmigiana, which waiter raved about, was tough, chewy, and hard to eat, along with some weird inedible fatty pieces. I had to purchase a small side of spaghetti to go with it. The food price, given very poor quality, was absurd! I paid nearly $100 for awful chicken parmigiana, salad, one glass of wine. Go elsewhere in Vegas—it’s shocking that Wolfgang Puck would lend his name to this place. Allegro in the Wynn for Italian & chicken parmigiana is far superior!!! Sixth & Mill in Venetian is also much better!!
Took 25 minutes to get our drinks.
Great presentation and lovely flavors.
Excellent dinner with exceptional service!
The Caesar salad was too salty. The pesto pasta had no flavor. This restaurant was terrible.
Appetizer: fritto misto was very tasty
Branzino was amazing. Delicious and filleted table side. It was served with broccolini and fingerling potatoes, both were cooked perfectly.
Paired it with a Colosi which was very good.
Cheesecake for dessert was also very good.
Ambiance and service (ask for Rob) were the best I’ve seen in a long time.
Appetizer, dinner, dessert and two glasses of wine ~$100/pp
Wanted to order the bar menu, but was told it was not available! So ordered off the regular menu! My wife had spaghetti pomodoro and it was very good! I had the margarita pizza! Crust was thin and good, but sauce and cheese were somewhat bland! I was disappointed!
Most restaurants were packed when we were looking for somewhere to eat, but there were many tables available when we booked at Cucina. Now I think I know why.
The food was good but came out lukewarm when it came out. This was fixed but was kind of disappointing. The overall experience was fine, but not exceptional like you would hope/expect. There are better options in Vegas.
Place was okay. Service was adequate. Food was good but overpriced. I have had much better food, service and ambiance for less
Our appies came before our drinks. The charcuterie board was not explained as it was presented. We had to ask what cheese and meats we were eating. Finally received our drinks after asking for them for the 2nd time. The vodka soda was so strong that I had to send it back.
Food and service were excellent. Ambiance was OK , you are eating in an enormous mall.
Great food, attentive staff. Excellent dining experience.
Food was good. Pricey for a mall spot. Had a kids menu. Not a lot of meat/protein options. Pizzas are very Smokey.
I was a bit disappointed with my chicken parmigiana. The chicken was thin and dry. But I loved the spaghetti—it tasted freshly made. And I loved the tiramisu.The staff were friendly.
Service and food were excellent.
Food was fabulous and so was the service! Not my first time at this restaurant and it certainly won’t be my last. The pasta is to die for!
We tried the mushroom pizza and it was excellent. The pizza had a very pleasant earthiness. The cheese, egg and crust were nice compliments
