Joel Robuchon - MGM Grand Ratings and Reviews
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.
Excellent service, food was amazing - had the 16 course tasting - great experience. I was surprised to see a three to four-year old child in the dining room when we arrived, which really isn't appropriate for the other diners and their experience, but other than that, it was great.
Everything you heard about Joel Robuchon lives up to expectations when dining at this wonderful restaurant. Service was spectacular -- spot on without missing a beat. The food was delicious. It's really simple -- great atmosphere, service and food. One of the best restaurants at which I've eaten.
The food was phenominal, among the best I've tasted which includes Picaso, Le cirque, Providence, Bouchon, babbo, Studio, Melisse, Patina, and Addison etc. However, the service was off. Bread was brought out without butter and oil until 5 minutes later. Our printed menus were not accurate. One of us ate the grand tasting menu and the other had the vegetarian tasting menu. Two printed menus were included as we departed but both were the same. Small items like these are what makes the difference between a Michelein 3 star restaurant and a 1 or 2 star. Having said this, the sommelier was outstanding, and the food was among the best I have ever tasted from Yountville, to La and San diego, to NYC.
The service was stupendous...maybe the best we have ever experienced; the waitstaff is the perfect mix of sophisticated, knowledgeable, unobtrusive yet engaging. The food was very good, but not incredible. The high end wine flights were exquisite. The setting is regal...but for the money I would rather eat at E Jose Andres.
Three stars is special any time and Robuchon does not disappoint. The dining room is probably the nicest I have ever been in and the contrast to the Vegas vibe just outside is mind bending - it takes a few minutes to adjust. The professional service and attention we recieved matched the ambiance perfectly. This type of dining experience is about more than just the food but the food is why you go and ours was truly exceptional - caviar, prawns, duck, lobster. the famous (and indescribable) bread and dessert carts all made for a special meal. You can spend a "Honda Civic" (literally) on wine at Robuchon and reading the wine list was a treat in and of itself - amazingly there were also many fine reasonably priced selections - our Som brought a smile to my face as he passionately guided our selection to a perfect match. The only thing that could have made our evening nicer would have been to stroll home through the streets of Paris and not the throngs of Las Vegas. Recommended to those who enjoy collecting stars.
We have dined at world-famous restaurants including The French Laundry and George V at the Four Seasons in Paris, so have experience with haute cuisine. We were very disappointed with our experience at Joel Robuchon. Several of the dishes were delightful and beautifully presented. However, the response to my garlic allergy was a rigid inability to make appropriate adjustments. Two dishes that I selected out of the five courses (cost $250) could not be made without garlic. If everything is made fresh, why couldn't the adjustment be made? They finally agreed to create the saffron risotto dish without garlic (why would you disguise the saffron taste with garlic??), but when the dish arrived, it contained lots of tomato so the saffron was still overpowered. One member of the wait staff spoke so softly that even in a quiet environment, it was difficult to understand her. This definitely was not the experience we expected and anticipated for my birthday celebration. We will not return and would not recommend this restaurant. At these prices, I expect better service and willingness to adjust to customer needs.
The food was very good but the overall ambiance of the place was lacking in pretty much every other way. Waiters seemed tired or bored, and frankly we became bored as well despite the food being good. We skipped dessert and left, and it was super overpriced for what we ate. Will not return here ever again.
Food was absolutely fantastic, best lobster I have ever taste in my life, the lobster soup with the lobster was absolutely divine. The bread cart and dessert cart were amazing, this has to be the biggest bread cart I have ever seen so far. Service was good we had no complaints, only that the food cost an arm and a leg but that is to be expected because you get what you pay for.
Absolutely amazing! We celebrated our 10th anniversary with dinner here. We did the Menu Degustation, which allows you to taste 17 different food items from appetizers to desserts. Our dinner took about 4 hours and was so memorable. We were also given a tour of the kitchen. The staff was very attentive and were so friendly. I have a new respect for the creative man that Joel Robuchon is.
Bread was a wow with huge range . Dessert was quite sophisticated. Rest of the food was definately not 3 star Michelin standard. Lacked high quality presentation and any clever culinary design which I would expect from a true 3 star Michelin. Taste was ok. Portion size small but that's OK if it packs a real taste which it didn't. Staff were curteous and attentive but without any real sense of loving what they do or commitment to loving the food they were serving. Had been trained to say the right things in a bit if an android style. Have been to way better 2 star Michelin restaurants and ordinary ones too. To be honest there is better quality food in downtown vegas in fremont east old vegas and way cheaper with real people serving you in a non android style. Restaurant had no atmosphere....sterile quiet with lots of botox. Sorry but just don't waste your money until they can get it right.
Celebrated a very special birthday. The entire staff (from entering the restaurant to leaving) went out of their way to make it special. Service was excellent and unpretentious for the caliber of restaurant. Food was definitely 3-star Michelin! Kudos to the sommelier who made the evening even more special with perfect wine pairings.
We waited a long time for this night to come. Over a year ago, we visited the JR at the Metropol Monaco...it was fantastic! And this visit to the JR Las Vegas was almost as great....the food and services was what we expected and more. The atmosphere of about 15 tables really provided the experience that we had waited so long to have. We really wanted to try the 18-course sampler but at $495 each, wow...just a bit much. It'd would have been perfect to offer the 18-course, as-is, for a couple. 18-courses, that's a lot of food...maybe even $595. But we really enjoyed our steak and Sea Bass dishes. The extras were really a classy touch for no additional charge; appetizer, bread and sweets cart. Now for the "almost"....we spent almost $700 and we were hungry 2 hours later and went to Ramsay's for a 2nd dinner. The food was incredible but the portions were so small. If you are looking for a "foodie bucket list restaurant", JR is a must.
I'm no professional food critic but I can say that this is the finest dining experience you will ever have!! Simply the finest food and service that is available at expensive but not unreasonable prices. My wife and I were blown away for days! Save your pennies and go for sure
Overpriced for food quantity. Spent $1000 and only drank 135 dollar bottle of wine. If you are not familiar w the menu the staff is slightly non tolerant of your stupidity and isn't extremely helpful. Quality of food is good and unique. Really important to know what kind of money you are getting into before entering this restaurant. Extremely quiet so be prepared to whisper. Waiters whisper to u as well.
For my birthday, my boyfriend took me to JOEL ROBUCHON. What a delightful experience! We opted to have a 4 course tasting menu with the Chef choosing the dishes for us. My boyfriend likes seafood but I do not. We told this to our waiter. We decided to have wine pairings with each course. Dinner took about two and a half hours. We were expected to be dressed "formally". We walked into this gorgeous restaurant with high hopes and we were not disappointed in the least! We felt like royalty. Each of our waiters were amazing. The food was delectable and the wines were beyond our wildest expectations. Not only were we offered an unreal dessert cart to choose from, we were even brought a birthday cake that was fantastic! There is nothing remotely bad about this restaurant. While it is a bit pricey (our total bill was just over $1,000), it was worth every single penny... so much so that we plan to make this our annual "birthday celebratory dinner" for me! For any special occasion, this is the best choice for dinner in Las Vegas Make sure to bring a camera as you will want to commemorate the evening in pictures!
Should you have any difficulty understanding the concept of purgatory as a penitential state prior to entering heaven, just walk through the rowdy, crude, loud lobby of the MGM Grand prior to entering the culinary bliss of Joel Robuchon, one of America's finest and most elegant restaurants. The food is nothing less than superb; the service is professional and precise; the room is stunning (as is your check). But,at the end of this sublime dining experience, you must again return to the abyss called the MGM 'Grand.'
