About La Cave - Wynn Las Vegas
Don't call it a wine bar. At least proprietor Michael Morton, of the famous Morton restaurant family, prefers not to describe his unique La Cave concept in such limited terms. With its tempting small plates menu, stylish surroundings and well rounded beer and spirits selection, La Cave is about more than simply good wine. This cozy Wynn hideaway is a wonderland of coved ceilings, wrought iron, polished woods and glass panels. Chef Bill DeMarco, a protégé of chef Charlie Palmer, crafts a beguiling menu of flatbreads, tapas-like small plates, grilled meats and platters of charcuterie and gourmet cheese - each meant to be a perfect pairing to one of La Cave's many wines. With its sexy and fun vibe, this cave devoted to vino-pleasures comes replete with an outdoor dining terrace overlooking landscaped gardens and pools. Morton sums it up best, "I want people to leave feeling as though they just went to the best dinner party. Great food, great wine, great music, great friends"

La Cave - Wynn Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
The bacon wrapped dates were very good and so was the filet on crostini but the crab ravioli was very disappointing and the robust red wine flight was disappointing. Only 2 good out of the four. It was freezing in the garden patio area (even though its inside). Would not return. Too many other great places in Vegas.
Beautiful outdoor seating in the Wynn. This is a wine person’s paradise, many wines by the glass. They have a wine bar up front. It was very noisy when we passed through, but the outdoor restaurant is out of the way. Dishes are small and served when the kitchen is ready. This is more like a tapas menu. The food is nicely prepared and very good.
A nice spot for dinner, great vibe at the bar and cool ambience. Big variety of tapas, larger portioned than most traditional tapas. Kind of eclectic so careful not to mix and match too many different flavors. Beer was great, cocktails were a little too sweet, looked like a nice selection of wine as well.
Came in or an evening out and ordered the most expensive wine flight. The glasses came with literally 1.5oz of wine in each and tasted as if they has been uncorked and sitting on a shelf for awhile. Paid about $140 just for the wine and it was barely drinkable. Food was so so as well. Most likely will not return.
I went with my family for brunch on January 1st. We were able to get a table very quick. Personal was very friendly and willing to make you have a good experience. They passed over the different plates to the table. Freshly cooked and in adecuate sizes.
The ambience of the place was calm, no noises, clean.
This is a great place for brunch!
We came here before attending Le Reve, and it worked out great timing-wise. We enjoyed all of our food, but weren't so blown away that it became a must-do every time we head to Vegas. Our server was great and we enjoyed our dinner. The only negative is the big screen TV in the main dining room that doesn't really fit with the ambiance and was a bit distracting.
Gluten free menu disappointing with just a few options. Had warm salted beets w goat cheese & pistachios - so salty could not eat them do not recommend. They made chicken skewers gluten free w lettuce & satziki - not on GF menu they made for me small appetizer size was good. Husband had filet slices on small Crustini slice (2 half palm size each) he said was good. He ordered fries and said good but not GF so I did not try them. He had a coke and I had tap ice water. Menu did say "small plates" and they were. Entire lunch noted above at noon was 95 dollars I left hungry. Too many other better places to eat I do not recommend.
Wooden chairs with uneven legs were most uncomfortable. Moved us to other room where the table was lower than your lap making eating a challenge.
The room was very dark. You could not see the details of your food without a flashlight-let alone order from the menu.
Food was fine. No stand out dishes but no complaints
Was a wonderful Christmas dinner, What a great place to sit at the bar or have an quiet dinner. It is a beautiful restaurant with a menu that would please everyone. The staff is fun and can help you with your menu choices. The food is amazing. The wine list is impressive from just a glass to a nice bottle.
Food has really gone downhill here. Sliders dry, chicken skewers dry, salmon app very fishy in bad way as the smoked salmon was decent. The cervicche was tasteless. This is not the first time food has been this way. Very disappointing as this used to be one of my favorite restaurants.
It was our intent to have an intimate Christmas celebration experience in what is described as a “wine and food hideaway” (Wynn website), so the staff seating a party of four in hands reach next to our table when the entire room was near empty, was unfortunate. The staff also left our used dishes on the table far too long and did not provide extra clean dishes with each tapas dish to share. Also unfortunate, was that Eater Las Vegas listed this restaurant as having a Christmas brunch menu which they did not. However, food was delish nevertheless.
Service was confusing. We had 5 different people come to our table and most of them weren't friendly. Portions were incredibly inconsistent, some dishes were entire meals on their own and some were laughably tiny. I love that they have a vegan menu but the food was just okay.
We were seated outside on Christmas Eve and the view of the gardens was beautiful! The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the delicious editable ornament for dessert. The food was good but very over priced for the portions. It was small plate dining which we have back in Chicago and we so enjoy because we like to try different things. But after ordering 2-3 plates each we still left feeling a little hungry. You need to eat at A Girl and A Goat in Chicago to see how small plates are done and it is not as appetizers. Which is why she was awarded the Best Great Lake chef.
We visit Vegas regularly and if we are in town on a Sunday this is the place for Brunch, 2 people or 20, always great food, great atmosphere and the service is always Number ONE. This is up there with one of my Vegas favourites and that is a tough school to be at or near the top.
excellent ambiance - sat outside on patio with heat lamps - all by ourselves!
food was good, some plates better than others - cocktails were good.
server was friendly, but then she got busy and we were left unattended longer than we would have liked. priced reasonable.
We have Eaten here perhaps 6 to 8 times over the last couple of years. And actually is my favorite place to eat at the Wynn. This visit, we had lunch there for the first time, as well as dinner — and lunch was a much more pleasant surprise experience than dinner because the light is so natural and pretty in the outer room. At night, it has gone from romantic to ridiculous , and literally no one can read the menu, It is so dark. “A little unclear on the concept,” no? Lighting by iPhone and some feeble candles. People don’t like to feel awkward and silly when they are at a beautiful restaurant.
The menu seems to have shrunk over the last couple of years, but there are still nice things to order. Their flatbread pizzas, basically, are still delicious. I had a chicken skewer –: a little too dry, but the dipping sauce was nice. My husband’s salmon was wonderful, he said, as was the roasted asparagus.
The only weak dish we ordered: the three bean salad, usually a favorite of ours. The green beans were great, the other beans were undercooked, which could just be a matter of taste – legitimate difference of opinion. But a good portion of the so-called grilled artichoke hearts were not artichoke hearts, they were thistle or some small, tough, unchewable leaf . I was afraid of choking, and started to put them to one side of my plate. I (uncharacteristicly) mentioned this to the waiter when he asked how things were; he insisted they were artichoke hearts (emphasis on the “choke,” I guess). I stopped eating everything but the green beans. Dangerous? A little too hearty, chef.
I wish they would switch up the desserts a little, too.
But having said that, I really love La Cave and wish there were one or two other quiet, pretty, small plate places like it at the Wynn or Encore.
What a great hidden gem. We rarely get over to the Wynn and this was a great surprise! Food was tasty, service from Amber was wonderful. Out only complaint was all the old people who had their cell phones out, lights on, trying to read the menu. The what was supposed to be dark patio was lit up like a Christmas tree. But you will love the food, the wine and the view.
Food was excellent, but service was regrettably horrible. It was the first visit for me and my mom. I bring to her to Vegas once a year, and this was our first time at Wynn. We enjoyed all the dishes (crab in lettuce cups, kale salad, shrimp, salmon, fettuccine). The server was unfortunately very slow and not very attentive at all. Our food came before she even came with water. And we wanted to add another dish, but she never came by again to check on us until we had finished our dishes. Then it took another half hour to wait for the additional dish to arrive. And another long time for her to come back with our check. The service pretty much ruined an otherwise good meal for me and my mom. Pretty upset.
This dining spot is very deceptive from the outside. It;s exterior/reception is too modern for its interior. Also, when you stroll by, you get a feeling that it's nothing more than a quite small wine salon. In truth, there is significant dining space, indoors, covered patio, and outdoor patio overlooking the lovely pool.
Service has always been efficient and friendly.
Food is unique small plates. We had the raw salmon tostada, beef carpacchio, and grilled shrimp with toasted garlic slivers. Each was very good.
My only suggestion to the restaurant would be to size the shared plates for the number of people. Serving 3 pieces for 2 people is a bit awkward. I would suggest pricing a single piece and allow diner to choose the serving size.
This was our third visit and would return.
Another great night with the usual great mix of good dishes. The staff did seem a little overworked and out of focus. The dishes were served counter intuitive - meat first, the salat, then flatbread- even though we ordered in a different order. Also there was some substantial waiting as well.
Visited with family for Thanksgiving dinner. We each ordered wine flights which we excellent and two entrees plus sides. I ordered the short ribs and the truffle grits which where delicious. My sister ordered the turkey special and mashed potatoes. The turkey was cold and she sent it back. It came back a second time cold. They graciously took it off her bill, but she was a bit disappointed,
We have dined here before and had great experience in the past. This time our disappointment resulted from where we were seated. I do not know why when a restaurant is practically empty that the service staff has to sit you at a table right next to someone else. The tables are small in the covered patio area; a table for two is so small you have to be sure to tell the server to only bring one item at a time because there is no room on the table for more than that. Our waitress was also part of the cause for the low score on this review. She did not listen to our order and the one item that my husband truly wanted she did not order; we received a different dish that was still excellent but the crab in lettuce wraps one one item my husband was looking forward to and by the time we asked her if it was coming we were basically done with our meal. We will probably go back again but we will be sure to not accept a table next to another couple when the restaurant is basically empty; It is like having to dine with a complete stranger; if I wanted to join them for dinner I would have requested a table for a party of 4.
