The vegetarian tasting menu was really good. For my spouse not so great as The dressing on the salad was bitter and his scallops were not hot.
Went to celebrate after getting married earlier that same day. Ben the sommelier was outstanding. Lobster in the pot pie was undercooked and not edible. Branzino was exceptional, as was the caviar appetizer. Didn’t acknowledge that it was our wonderful wedding day. A bit disappointing since we have been there before and had an outstanding experience. Each time we have been there we have spent over $1,000 on dinner - the last time it was worth it. This time it was not. Disappointing.
One of the classiest, stylish restaurant in Las Vegas. The staff and I mean all was unbelievably knowledgeable polite and just a regular kind of person, they made u feel really welcome. Service was one of the top, we have been before and this is one of our favorites for special occaasions. Our pocketbook doesn't allow us to dine here every nit but would highly recommend. Food flavors are perfect. Keep doing what yr doing
The room is very nice. The service excellent. The food was pretty good too many rich sauces dropped on top of various tasting menu plates. Ask for the sauce on side.
Crisis avoid...I mistakenly set my reservation for the wrong evening. Oops...Luckily the kind hostess found a table for me and my soon to be unforgiving sister within 10 minutes of our arrival. We were seated promptly in the intimate dining room and after a few minutes of deliberation, we settled on the phyllo crusted sole. My sole was fresh and flaky with a delightfully mild flavor. The wait staff were polite and attentive but not overbearing. No dessert or appetizers were ordered but I will definitely remedy this on my return visit .
Excellent food and service. The best fish and tuna tartare that we've ever tasted.
Have now celebrated 5 anniversaries here - excellent tasting menu
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings ~ both the signature and seasonal menus were perfection! We particularly enjoyed the expertise of lead sommelier, Benjamin Spicer. Ben and his staff were spot on.
Very expensive however you get what you pay for. Recommend the tasting menu.
The tomato app was not very good. The lobster pot pie wasn't the best. The service and wine list were great. The fois tableside was great.
One of the best meals I have ever had. Impeccable service.
Excellent- awesome place for a couple to enjoy great food!!
Awesome! Wait staff was quick and attentive. Had to get to a show and food came out quick but didn't effect the quality. Outstanding food and a great time.
The food was amazing. We had the seafood tower for two.. That plus a share salad would have been plenty. The service was excellent and we both have food allergies so we really appreciated that they asked about this. If you have a chance to go, do. It's a wonderful experience
Management and wait staff are great. Excellent food
Very disappointed. Several guests had the tasting menu---lobster in pot pie, very tough, same for the steak! The phyllo crusted sole was the only item we all thought was great.
Service in getting us seated was poor. Service once seated was much better.
I have eaten at several of Michael Mina's restaurants and was most disappointed dinning at this one. We all enjoy fine dinning as part of our travels and do not mind paying for a good dinning experience. This was not one of them.
Would not recommend this restaurant for any of the above questions.
I have dined here a few times before and was disappointed with this dinner. My companion and I both had a tasting meal. She, the signature, me, the seasonal. First off, we were seated at a table that was in the back at a spot that had a lot of traffic between the wait staff going from the kitchen to tables and diners traveling to their table and also the bathroom. The dining room was far from full. The table we were seated at should be used only when all the other tables are full. The bread- what a disappointment. Only two types of rolls to choose from, whole wheat and sourdough. We only had the sourdough, but they tasted like a roll you would pull from the freezer and heat up. In the past there were a few choices and the bread tasted fresh and delicious. Not so this time. No amuse bouche. Pretty sure we have had one in the past. The food was for the most part good, sometimes great. One exception was the goat cheese tortelloni. It was lovely to look at but had no real taste. Blah. The seared scallop was terrific as was the sea trout with falafel. One thing we would like to see is a tasting menu that included just vegetables/salad. The menus are protein heavy and the sauces tend to be rich so it would be nice to have something a bit lighter in the middle. Just a thought. Lastly, but very disappointing was our waiter. Nice guy but doesn't belong in a high end restaurant. Never really felt cared for and the capper was at the end of the night when we asked to get the cookies on our dessert plate to go. He came by and practically tossed a paper bag on our table. Not cool. It should be noted that all the other staff members were terrific with water and such. One thing they could work on is their timing. Sometimes we felt a bit rushed with our plates. I hope this restaurant gets back to the level we have experienced before. We really enjoyed it in the past.
In writing a review, one struggles to fairly balance all the aspects of the event. In that the food and the service from the team (bus and water team) was good; however from the server to the management was poor.
I would define this restaurant as an 'old boys club'. They fawn over the business men together or the larger group of men with their dates. When it comes to the family or women groups, much less attentive. As our group was well dressed with teenagers and the other group near us was two woman that shared our experience and feelings.
After eating at Michelin to street food places; I was disappointed here. The experience and expectations were not met.
1 The server had a dismissive attitude about our table and did not smile. There was not
2 We came for a special night, our twins 13th birthday, there was no "happy birthday" response but an ask for what we would like to drink. I did not
3 Server failed to say good bye, just dropped the bill and went in the back to talk (we could see him)
4 Server assumed that we wanted basic and cheap, we had to request for wine options
5 Service was on par with average casino restaurant.
6 Server looked at our table and did not clear, we had been done, forks turned over. Empty wine glasses sat on the table.
7 I witnessed the management and sommelier visit other tables, that were not having bottles. They did not come to us even when I asked for a paring suggestion.
1 Food was cooked spot on.
2 Tuna Tartar was exceptional
3 Overall the chef team cooked spot on. Really Management is poor, as they dictate the culture and treatment.
In looking for a better experience, within the same area, visit the Bartalotta restaurant. The service their alone sets it far apart from here. I am sad to say, this restaurant should close as it not doing any service for the Bellagio. As Michelin does not rate Las Vegas, the chef is rated but the restaurant in most definitely not a Michelin star place. At best 2-3 AAA diamond.
Every thing was fine except the filet mignon I received was tough, had a piece of gristle and seemed to lack any distinctive seasoning. I left half of it on the plate and no one seemed to notice and if they did, they didn't seem to care.
What an most impressive menu! The tuna tartare was to die for!!! The Lobster pot dinner was spectacular especially how they recreate the lobster before your eyes. The service was impeccable, the wait staff were all so attentive and observant to our every need. The flavor combinations are pure proof of a chef genius behind these dishes. We were in aw form appetizer to dessert. You do not want the experience to end and wish you wouldn't satiate - it is literally that good! Wow. what a hidden gem in the Bellagio lobby garden. Thank you to the restaurant staff for all you did.
I had not been to Michael Mina's since it first opened but was delighted to know that the tuna tartare was just as good as I remembered. 2 of their signature dishes --- the lobster pot pie and the root beer float dessert are must-haves, so that is exactly what I did! We were there to see "O" at the Bellagio so did the pre-theater menu. Love that the quality remains so high after all these years!
We have dined at Michael Mina several times and every meal has been superb. It is by far our favorite in Las Vegas.
Completely overpriced for what you get. The food was fine but not worth the $50+ for entrees.
Excellant restaurant, especially if you are a vegetarian. The tuna was incredible.
We will definitely be back. Very nice wine list as well. Its is an expensive restaurant but worth it.
This restaurant has really lost its way. From being a Michelin starred restaurant in 2009, now I'd rather dine at Applebee's than go back to Michael Mina's. the service was mediocre. We ordered the tasting menu and got the first two courses in 15 minutes than waited 20 minutes for for the 3rd course.
The dishes made no sense either. The flavors and elements and felt out of place and did not pair with each other well. Very disappointed.
Special experience & will return,
Thank you Michael
Favorite Las Vegas restaurant. Service was spotty for the first time ever.
Michael Mina is our favorite restaurant in Vegas and one of our favorites anywhere. The food and service are perfection. Their pre-theater menu can't be beat. The root beer float is not to be missed!
dining experience, great service, big wine list, great for dinner conversation,
Chef's tasting was delicious. Wonderful sommelier. Perfect for a pre-dinner show!
Our server Greg was exceptional. His menu suggestions were excellent. We went with the tasting menu which was incredible. When in Vegas we will definitely be back
Enjoyed the tasting menu. Everything from the caviar to the sole to the lobster pot pie were excellent. Only disappointment was the final waguy beef course. Three of the four of us got very grissley pieces. Unacceptable for a one star Michelin restaurant.
The tasting menu with the wine flights was extraordinary. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable about both the food and the wine, and the sommelier's wine selections and descriptions enhanced the overall experience. You tend to savor every bite so as to experience the unique combination of flavors.
Had the Chef's Tasting with wine paring, the only word to describe the experience is AMAZING! Service was spot on! Pricey, but this Michael Mina, not Funster McBurger!
Food and service was excellent. Enjoyed our dinner. No one rush you out. Whole staff was excellent.
The restaurant is overpriced and our server was not very friendly. Did not seem to care about us.
I remember the Lobster Pot Pie from Knob Hill, and it was fantastic. Several times in Vegas made sure to have a dinner there. Michael Mina's did not have the same depth of flavour in the Lobster Pot Pie from previous visits. Additionally, the wine list is way overpriced and the wine is average.
The signature tasting menu and wine pairings blew me away. I have had some really good meals in Las Vegas over the years, but this was by far the best. Often I find the Vegas restaurants to be a little bit below a restaurant in New York, Paris or San Francisco. Michael Mina shattered my expectations and my views on what dining in Vegas can be like.
My only minor complaint: the plates are too large for a tasting menu. I felt like I was getting entree size portions, and unfortunately I couldn't fully enjoy the amazing dessert. (Again, this is a minor complaint.)
The Signature Tasting and Seasonal Tasting Menus were really exceptional. Every single dish was quite complex and perfectly prepared. Virtually everything we had was delicious and unique. Given how much work went into each dish, and how many different dishes we were able to enjoy, I ended up feeling that these tasting menus were really an exceptional value, and an amazing opportunity for experiencing Michael Mina's food for the first time.
