Culinary Dropout Ratings and Reviews
As a vegetarian, I was very pleased with the menu options. I also liked the tapas-style portion of the menu, which offered an array of tasty options. The atmosphere was great, and the cocktails were delicious. It was a great experience, and we will definitely be back!
Great dinner at CD, as always. Was very busy and our food took longer than usual, but our waitress was great and food delicious. We were sat right inside the front door, which was not as fun as being inside. Sit on the patio if weather permits. Good live music.
We enjoyed our meal at Culinary Dropout - it was a quiet evening, and we had a very attentive waitress. She gave us some good recommendations for drinks (the Manhattan) and for food. My mom loved the ribs, and I thought the cannelloni was great, the roasted vegetables gave it a great flavor. The music was a little loud, and I was glad it was a quiet night so we could hear each other. We also really liked the pretzels with cheese fondue, although we could have done with a 1/2 order - wish that existed! Overall it was a nice venue, great service and great food.
Absolutely bland! Thought this would be a neat place given that it is inside the Hard Rock Hotel and that the food at an associated restaurant would have pizzazz and flavor. What a disappointment. No pizzazz and absolutely no flavor; a grandparent with acid reflux would even be bored senseless at the lack of flavor. My spouse had the Cap'n Crunch Crusted French Toast (hardly crusted and didn't taste like the cereal in the least) and I had the BBQ Pork Belly Nachos (the BBQ pork was sweet, the chips on the nachos bland, the cheese sauce more like an alfredo sauce, and absolutely no spice, no jalapenos, nothing). To top it all off we were seated where our server was actually assigned to an area all the way across the restaurant (mismanagement of the servers and the workload by the management team), and it took us about 10-15 minutes for just a side order of jalapenos and Tabasco (trying to make the nachos more palatable). We will not be back and will not be recommending this place to anyone.
Being from the south you never know what you are going to get but hands down some of the best food I have eaten in Vegas. Have been here for 11 years and I have to put this up in the tipy-top. I stay away from fried foods but heard so much about their fried chicken I had to try it. GREAT!! Can't wait to go back.
We enjoyed Culinary Dropout very much. The room is dark and hip, the live violinists were a nice surprise, but the service was the best part. Our server Gina was just the sweetest, walking us through the menu, offering her favorites choices, and laughing at our nonsense. The charcuterie board was seriously on point. Cheese, great meats, and bread baked in house that is literally the best carb I’ve ever tasted. The muscles were good, but again, it was served with the platinum bread to dip in the sauce. All in all, was a great experience and would definitely go back.
Culinary Dropout is located inside the Hard Rock Casino. The food is really yummy, and the portions are nice. It is a casino, so it's not cheap, but it is reasonable. The only issue is the noise...inside the actual place can be deafening (and I am a rocker, so loud doesn't bother me, but this is "Can barely have a conversation" loud). The outside area is still loud, but it is much better, and the couches are super comfy to chill on with friends. I have been here three times now, and it is always good service, good drinks, and good food...give it a try!
I was a little dissapointed with the options for gluten free people. Then when I ordered something the waiter let me know that the were out of it. It was a bit dissapointing not to be able to have anything other that a plate of goat cheese with fries. The waiter was kind. Our group came in seperate groups just to get to gether and put all of our bills together which was a pain to slipt when around 300$ next time ask up front if we want to split checks automatic tip was still fine but with haveing other friends join us in the middle of meal and and not be split checks was a nightmare
We had an excellent experience!! Our server, Ben?, was super attentive and made sure that my food accommodated my food allergies. We all enjoyed our meal and drinks very much!! We would come back and recommend!! The only thing was the music was a little too loud, hard to talk over. Otherwise, everything else was fantastic!!
The restaurant was pretty good, it's part of a chain that always seems to be consistent. The server was excellent, very personable and engaging to us and others at tables around us. The only issue was although we had a reservation for 6:30, when we showed up at 6:20 we were told were early and it would be a few minutes . . . 10 min early? Too soon? So we waited 10 min and got in at that time - only to find there was plenty of room in both the inside part and the outdoor deck. They were also telling people there would be a 20 to 30 min wait. Most just left . . . not necessary at all. Management might want to review the front staff to see what's going on. Losing customers needlessly.
My daughter and I were in Las Vegas for a mother/daughter weekend. We made a reservation at the Culinary Dropout. The food was amazing!!! We created an antipasti board that was so delicious. The prosciutto deviled eggs were the BEST I have ever tasted. You have to order the soft pretzels & provolone fondue...this is a must have. Just a hint, the restaurant will let you order 1/2 an order of the soft pretzels if you are a party of two. I would highly recommend that you take the time to eat at the Culinary Dropout. The staff are friendly, attentive and fun.
Was our first time here and it was wonderful! We really enjoy going out to brunch and we wanted someplace new. Their food and drink options did not disappoint. Their charcuterie options were amazing and so were their pierogies! We all loved the indoor/outdoor seating arrangements; plenty of space between tables. Gary took great care of us and we are looking forward to coming back!
Had a great time as a solo diner. My server was professional, relaxed, anticipated my needs, explained the menu with out trying to get me to order the most expensive items.
The live music was fantastic.
My only dislike, and was my own fault, I asked if there was seating outside. There was loud music from near the Joint. Lots of bass.
Great Value. Amazing food! Will be back!
