Reservation met on time, waiter was excellent and just the right amount of friendly, food was excellent (we both had the lobster pot pie - I have had it every time I've been; its that good and I know of no other restaurant that has anything like it).

Everything was beautifully presented and the wine pairings were superb. Loved our waiter. Only complaints were too little salt on the tuna tartare and too much salt on two other dishes and pine nuts that seemed a bit off. The caviar appetizer, cod and dessert were perfect. I would definitely return.

I expected so much more from the food! Entree of sea bass was sadly overly and strangely seasoned and the side of sautéed greens was bathed in soy sauce. The cauliflower soup was also not tasty, but harsh. I would not recommend although the service was exceptional

They have changed this restaurant and not for the better. Used to be one of the best in Vegas. They now have fresh fish on display. The smell of it overwhelms the entire restaurant and takes away from the experience. Just not as good as it used to be.

The food was very good although I thought the seasoning on the grilled prawns could have been more flavorful. The dessert (rice pudding) was great. I thought there could have been a more robust selection of salads and side dishes.

Had great hopes because of the hoopla surrounding this restaurant. Ordered vegetarian tasting menu with wine pairings. $400 for two. Other than the amuse Bouche of savory cheese and beet under a sweet merengue cracked table side, and a lemony cauliflower soup, the rest was forgettable. Nice , nothing terrible, but just meh. Gnudi was fine but sauce was like sticky like a cornflour slurry. Pot pie was the same bland flavor profile as the whole meal. Service wasn’t on par with other restaurants in this range.

Valentine’s Day menu. They don’t make the tuna tartare table side it’s made in one big batch and they serve you a scoop. Mini lobster pot pie overcooked and dried out with no juice. Steak under cooked had to sent back.
Will only dine there during regular menu hours. I have ate there many times and didn’t experience this.

We had a tight schedule due to a 7 p.m. show. The dinner literally lasted around an hour.
The service is without a doubt one of the top notch. The waiter was professional and knowledgable.
We were recommended the dinner that is designed for people who has a tight timeline. It is a $70 3-course menu, with some selections for each of the course.
That is to say, we had 2 starters, 2 entrees and 2 desserts.

Then the food kind of disappointed us maybe due to our high expectation.
Overall the food in Michael Mina is more of sour taste. You would be able to spot lots of sour elements from starters to desserts, especially the lemon tart.

The filet mignon was definitely overcooked. We ordered medium rare, and the dish was served solid as a stone. That is definitely at least medium well. The waiter kindly apologized and replaced our dish. However, that squeezed our time even more. It took another 15min for them to prepare the dish.

I would give praise to the 2 courses out of the 6: The starter sea urchin toast, and the entree black cod.

I would still say yes in terms of whether suggesting people to try it out. I think the sour taste may cater to other customers, and the mistake we encountered is rare.

Made a reservation and the place was virtually empty when we arrived and stated that way. Never a good sign! Our server was fair - he seemed out of place and could not properly pronounce ‘amuse buche’ which was pretty bad. Daughter had the tasting menu and liked most of it. My husband had Kons kampachi done asian style and it was decent but over salted. I got black cod which was also too salty and bitter. Took forever to get bill prepared for us. Not worth the $ and we don’t recommend!

Thank you to the chefs, the servers, the remarkable waiters and the outstanding sommelier. One of our party had never experienced a tasting menu but certainly now is a convert. Thank you all for your kindness, skill and good humor.

My fiancé and I had a few nights together in Vegas and decided to explore Michael Mina as it was recommended to us by a friend. Our experience was fantastic.

Food: We did the tasting menu and every single course was delicious and exciting. We were stuffed by the end of it but we preservered. The highlight, for me, was the crusted sole and ahi tartar. I’ve just had three tasting menus on back-to-back nights and Michael Mina’s was the best by a long shot.

Ambiance: The ambiance is good. It’s not exactly candlelight dinner... and the bar does have tv screens but if you sit further back in the restaurant, it’s not as bad. Due to the convention in town, it was really busy and hectic BUT that was really all of vegas.

Service: The waiters were amazing and so attentive. They felt so guilty because the restaurant was crazy busy and were so nice and welcoming to us. They topped off our night with complimentary champagne which was much appreciated.

If you’re looking for a tasting menu in Vegas, look no further.

Jorge and Marcio truly made our dining experience one of a kind! Marcio explained every dish we ordered with such great detail! Marcio even went out of his way to discuss how many of the fish are flown in on private jets from as far as New Zealand. The fish is either grilled, broiled, or fried and it changes daily. One dish to watch is the hot shellfish platter, which is glazed with miso butter. This is really the star of the menu. That said, I loved the 45-day dry aged steak! Jorge, the manager, checked on our table several times throughout the night and genuinely made sure we were satisfied. In a packed restaurant, we were treated like we were the only patrons dining in the restaurant! Michael Mina should be very proud of this restaurant and the experience it offers! We will certainly be returning!

Our first experience at Michael Mina's was absolutely great. We chose the tasting menu for our Christmas Eve dinner and were not disappointed. Taking the wine pairing option also saved us from wading through an awesome - but lengthy - wine list.

The only (slight) flaw in the meal was the overcooked meat in the lobster pot pie. Compared to all the pluses, it was a minor inconvenience.
