A magnificent experience and everything was perfection! But came with a very steep bill. We’ll probably be back.

The food, wine and service were exceptional. I would like to give it a five star rating but unfortunately the ambiance fell short due to other guests being on their cell phones. Almost every table had guests actively using their phones throughout dinner (including talking, shining the light across the room and scrolling). To sum it up, this was the most beautiful and expensive meal I've ever had and a guest at the table next to us talked and facetimed on their phone through most of their dinner. While the waiter intervened once, the problem was not resolved. We spent most of our dinner unwillingly listening to their phone conversation. This behavior seemed very inappropriate for this level of restaurant and while in retrospect I could've spoke up in the moment, I still think the staff could've intervened more appropriately. Unfortunately this had a very negative impact on our dining experience. I have let the restaurant know of my complaint in hopes that they will be able to better resolve in the future.

Everthing is perfect! We ordered a 4 courses set which is way too much for me and my boyfriend. The restaurant helped my BF to set up a suprise for me and even served cake as gift. Hope to be there next time.

Not our first time, not our last. Fantastic food, very expensive but the man was a genius. Food in plates are a work of art.
Young chef at MGM location is incredible. Had the tasting menu - small bites but you do not walk out hungry, actually very full.

anniversary dinner. 5 course was a lot of food. I’m not sure about the 16 course. Pricy, but you get what you pay for. Best service, fantastic food, nice atmosphere, 3 and a half hour experience. Service may seem slow, but will not be noticed if you’re carrying on a conversation. Will return next year.

Maybe I was expecting too much but it really wasn't worth the price. Service was excellent but really where in Vegas doesn't have exceptional service. Food was cooked well, presentation was great but small servings for the price. I've had better tasting and larger quantities for half the price.

We had the most amazing culinary experience. The food was meticulously presented, the flavors and textures were exquisite, and the service was impeccable. The menu was approachable, and they had a selection of around a dozen different breads to go with the very special butter and oil. The complimentary mini desserts were adorable and delicious.

Great ambiance and service. Choice of breads from the cart with lots of selections. Ordered 4-course menu (amuse bouche, 2 apptizers, 1 main course, dessert) at $198/each. Ordered caviar (+$35), foie gras (+$25), and truffled langoustine ravioli (+$35, signature of Joel Robuchon). The appetizers are real highlights. Had black cod and ribeye for main courses. Black cod is really delicious and the meat is very tender. Had Bubble Sugar Sphere and Souffle (+$10) for desserts. Bubble Sugar Sphere is on the sweet side, but has beautiful presentation. Souffle is also really good and definitely a classic. At the end there's the sweet cart where you can pick anything/everything you want (if you are not full already) - which is an awesome ending to the wonderful dinner.

Overall I did expect more, much more. On the 3 Michelin star world is easier to get disappointed then to be surprised. To put things in the correct perspective if you go to L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon (right next door) you have a better experience, with great dishes in a fantastic environment. Overall is a better value for your money.

Service was friendly and attentive but pace of the dishes was the worst ever on a restaurant rated as this one. Considering the room was not full I believe it is a point to review.
Some of the dishes were visually very appealing but disappointed on the flavor aspect. 2 or 3 were really spot on and memorable. The music was annoying (piano only and louder then I believe it should be) and visually the room was not interesting at all.
The choice was for the top menu of the restaurant that cover all famous dishes by the chef.

The restaurant is located beside L’atelier. It’s a total different ambience between this and L’atelier. Please remember to wear a coat for guys!

The food is amazing! Service is top notch! Quality of food is superb! Special thanks to the team for celebrating my birthday there :)

PS: creme brûlée is a must to try with their very delicious vanilla ice cream!

Each course at Joel Robuchon is an exquisite piece of gastronomic artistry. The bread cart is a bakers delight with over a dozen freshly baked morsel from which to choose. The amuse bouche of a cherry gazpacho was smooth, perfect tartness. Portions are perfectly sized for the number of courses one chooses so you leave sated yet not full. The wine list is biblical in volume. The service impeccable friendly yet unobtrusive. Expensive yes but you get more than what you paid for.

For that once in a lifetime experience, $250-500 per Person will garner you an unbelievable bread cart, pastry/dessert cart, impeccable service by a rotation of experienced and courteous servers, beautifully plated food with interesting flavours and textures. A gorgeous dining room and ambiance complete the experience. Seems a much better investment than the sAme amount you could lose at the casino without getting anything!

This is my third time dining at this restaurant and the second time I have indulged in the chef tasting menu. I must say dinner was on par to my last experience but I was disappointed in the final dessert course. The final desert has been a true work of art. This time I was truly disappointed. Although it tasted fine, it was not the usual level both taste and artistic flare that I have experienced in the past. Our reservation was very late and we were the last ones in the restaurant. Maybe they ran out of the wow!
