Food was meh. We’ve eaten there before and food was awesome. Not sure what happened. My burger was under seasoned and quite boring. We ordered the pretzel appetizer and several were raw/cold in the center.

Great place to take friends from out of town or even to go with locals. Service was a bit disorganized. Great atmosphere but the food is not spectacular.

Very good food and atmosphere. Ok beer selection. Loud so it’s not for an evening where you plan to have a lot of conversation.

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.

Comfortable atmosphere with lots of entertainment. Loud enough to hear, but not too loud where you can't have a conversation. Loved the fondue pretzel appetizer. A must try! The food was tasty and reasonable. The service was very slow and needs some work.

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.
