Joel Robuchon - MGM Grand Ratings and Reviews
Loved the bread cart- French butter was carved with spoon. Got the four course dinner with wine- nice wine list- ravioli was worth the entire cost of dinner. Pretentious waitstaff- felt rushed and was trying to remove plates before I had even finished my dinner. Dessert cart had multiple choices- some even off cart but if other waiter had not told couple next to us... we would never have known. I really wanted to love this place but just couldn't and while full... left disappointed.
I have dined around the world & have dined at this specific restaurant 4 times. For the $ ($1500+) this was not what we expected.
When I called a few minutes before arriving, the hostess apparently gave my requested table to another couple. BUT, instead of admitting that she gave away my table, she rudely lectured me that they can't guarantee tables. That sounded fishy so I started asking more questions & that's when she said I already checked in! That was when she admitted that someone came in & she thought it was me. Later she told our server it because the woman's name was similar to my name. Her FIRST name vaguely sounded like my LAST name. THAT's a big screw up!
Once we arrived, & I got a look at the couple, it was plain that they were MUCH older (late 80's) & clearly not celebrating a 50th birthday like my reservation notes said. So that's ANOTHER clue she should have noticed. I had several phone conversations in weeks & days prior to this night confirming the table & confirming their notes about the 50th birthday.
SO ... when we actually arrived, there was absolutely no one else in the restaurant, other than that couple... sitting at the table we wanted. We came all the way to Vegas for this - we had celebrated our 20th anniversary at that table.
To add insult to injury, at the table we ended up, I had a gnat in my face throughout the meal. The other couple only had a brief meal then left. Considering we ordered the full tasting menu plus pairing, they could have then MOVED us to that table.
The food was very good but not as mind-blowing as prior visits. The staff was not as diligent pushing in chairs, clearing plates, replacing bread as in past. Some of the servers mumbled & the sommelier sounded like he had marbles in his mouth. He apparently substitued a Syrah (no Syrah was listed on our printout). Table LED lamps seem cheap, & they should discontinue the olive oil for bread.
As we left, the hostess did not open the door for us either.
We loved the food, wine and overall dining experience. Truly unforgettable - except for the names of the fancy vino picked out by our sommelier. I asked for a list of the wine pairing and was promised a copy. In the end we only received the food list. For $1000 per person, I expected all my requests be honored.
Rich, luscious, butter. I thoroughly enjoyed the Robuchon experience. I had the tasting course designed by the restaurant and a wine flight. I was not disappointed by a single element of the service. Hands down, no questions, much preferred this experience to Gary Danko (SF) and it also became a rival in my heart with the original chef's presentations at Coi (SF). Robuchon sets the bar very high.
Very well done
Really wonderful people on the floor representing the Robuchon enterprise
Delightfully anticipating visiting again
I would recommend an earlier seating for a large tasting menu. The restaurant is quiet at first but begins to liven up as the night carries on.
I'm just going to get straight to the point as to why I'm only giving this place 3 stars. I love fine dining. And to be frank with you, I'm willing to pay the extra bens if the dining experience is actually worth it. But here? Nah. What I didn't like about this place is there wasn't any speciality dishes. For the price I paid, I wasn't expecting to be a served a hard boiled egg or raw salmon as my appetizers. Come on Joel, whip me up something that I can't eat anywhere else. Give me a reason to come back. I was here for your signature dishes but you definitely failed me.
The main entrees here were a bit underwhelming. The chateaubriand was good but unfortunately I had better steak elsewhere. Prime Steakhouse or the A5 Japanese Wagyu at Picasso in the Bellagio is much more deserving of a 5 star rating in my books.
1 star for the beautiful food presentation.
2 star for the service.
Great Memories are created by the use of all our senses. Our experience was outstanding. The visual experience was first as you take in the detail of the restaurant itself and then the beauty of the plating. Taste makes you both satisfied and yet wanting to experience the next service. Each service was in of itself an outstanding experience in which the food shined and was front and center surrounded by impeccable attention to all the other elements that make a great experience.
As expected this restaurant is very expensive. The food is beautiful and tastes amazing. We ordered the tasting menu which was very expensive and way too much food. I would return but only order the five course menu in the future. The dress code meant absolutely nothing. I was actually angry that I made my husband wear a suit and I felt badly for not wearing what I deemed to be proper "business formal" shoes until I saw people in jeans and sweatshirts inside. If you are going to have a dress code it must be enforced no matter how much money people flash at you. What a disappointment.
This is such a wonderful food experience. Mr Robuchon carefully crafts the dining experience. The breads are prepared fresh every day. The butter comes from a farm in Britney and is made for his restaurants. The butter is creamy and delicious. The caviar appetizer is a favorite. Each dish is made to order so it will be perfect. The sweets cart is loaded with fresh made goodies. Always save a little room for dessert. Kit is our favorite waiter. He knows the menu well and can help you select the perfect meal combinations. This is worth your time.
I have traveled far and wide around the world and usually go to the finest restaurants at various locations. Robuchon may be the very best I have experienced anywhere. There are so many fine touches, there are too many to name. Yes, it is expensive, but I will promise you, it will be worth it, and will be an exceptionally memorable gastronomic experience. This is my first time in Vegas, and I came for the shows and food. This restaurant is one reason I may return.
There is a reason this spot gets a 3 star Michelin rating. I was a little concerned about what to expect but the food, service and experience combined to provide one of the best meals and evenings in memory. You can choose an ala carte tasting menu or go full slate. I can't imagine finishing a full gestation and being able to walk comfortably afterwards. A special place and while not inexpensive you get what you pay for.
