B&B Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
I loved the creativity of the menu. We had a late-ish dinner after seeing a show. So I had a light dinner with the Beet Salad and the Grilled Octopus, both from the Antipasti part of the menu. The Beet Salad was tasty but was a little too salty and could have used just a punch more acid/citrus. The grilled octopus was very tender and grilled nicely, but was also too salty. One of my dinner companions ordered three of the vegetable sides - brocollini, kale and potatoes, and they were all nicely done. Those helped offset the saltiness of the octopus. My other dinner companion had the rabbit porchetta, and that was a very nice dish!! Tender, moist and nicely seasoned. We shared the Tiramisu. This is one of those desserts where everyone has a slightly different take on it. This one was ok, but not sure I would order it again. The cake was dense and little dry despite being dipped in espresso. So all in all, a little bit of a mixed bag. But I liked the concept of each item ordered and tasted.
The service was quite good, but that's it. Food was ridiculously expensive and had either very little flavor or was actually rather unpleasant. I had the chicken salad as a main dish and the salad was bitter and chicken without flavor. We had two appetizers - ravioli & ground meet with Penn - and both were barely seasoned while costing $25 each. I would not go here again if someone else paid the bill.
Spectacular restaurant - love that they are “green” with their food sources and choices. The tasting menu was superb - although maybe not for an unadventurous diner. My husband ordered a la carte and I did the tasting menu. Our server, Sharon, was the best waitress we have ever had - knowledgeable, poised, personable... A+! Will surely return!
In the past I've visited this restaurant many time but will not do so again because I am so disappointed that Mario is no longer connected to B & B. Yes I know what he did but it is very extreme that he is out of his restaurants. That is not what happens in this country to someone who has not been charged with a crime which Mario has not.
The dining experience was very nice. The food was very good, the service was great, but I was really bothered by something in the dining area. A couple of tables away was a family. They had their dog with them. The dog was small but it was sitting ON The bench seating. It wasn’t in a carrier, it wasn’t on the persons lap , it was sitting on the same furniture that the next person would sit on. But what made me decide I would never go back to this restaurant was when the owner picked up a glass of ice water and gave the dog a long drink! I’m sorry! I love dogs but I don’t want to get that glass after the dog drank from it!! That is repulsive to me. It really affected my review of this otherwise lovely, expensive dinner! I would not go back!
Everything was very tasty and our server was very knowledgeable & pleasant. In fact, we were impressed by her competence and confidence; the young lady was a pro. We appreciated the creativity and presentation throughout the pre fixe New Year's Eve dinner. My one complaint was with the Lobster Spaghetti. We commented that the spaghetti was under-cooked and she indicated that was intentional, calling it a "firm al dente" or something to that effect. Chewy is chewy and that was a fail. The garlic chives and sweet garlic complimented the tender, perfectly-cooked chunks of lobster quite well, and the flavor was excellent. The spaghetti, however, was a fail. Everything else was very good and I would definitely return on a non-holiday night to try their regular menu.
The food was overpriced. The appetizers were good, the entrees were weak, they mistimed our meal and the entrees came out cold. We tried the short rib which was very tender but a bit dry, the polenta was nondescript, dish could have used a sauce. The pastas were ok, beef cheek raviolis over-sauced and lacking in presentation. Side of Brussel sprouts might have been the best dish. We didn't bother with dessert. We dined rather late so there weren't many diners, no excuse for cold food. Portions were fine. I believe they were training our waitperson, which was fine but he had a hard time describing the menu resorting to words like very good, taste is good, nebulous terms. But he was friendly and fairly attentive. Don't think I would dine there again.
Fantastic food, fantastic service! We typically do 1 splurge dinner while in Vegas and this did not disappoint!! Excellent tasting menu and very knowledgeable server to walk us through. Entire serving staff could not have been better or more attentive. Great cozy atmosphere and loved the fun music. Very impressed.
Not a great experience. The place looked like it was a fine upscale dining experience, music was heavy metal at times which I know was suppose to be a nod to Vegas but seriously it was a fail. You can't try to put on a nice dinner experience with that kind of music then charge an exorbitant amount for pasta Absolutely nothing special about the whole experience. I take that back, the server was great. But seriously save your money eat at Bouchon instead when everything has been thought out and carried out to a T
Both the food and service were spectacular! The pasta dish with rabbit and hen of the woods mushrooms probably was my most favorite of the three courses I had. Would highly recommend the two minute spicy calamari as well. Great choice of wines by the glass since I drank white and my husband drank red wine that evening. I like that they asked if we were planning to see a show or if we had any kind of time constraint. We did not and I was certainly glad we could relax and enjoy!
In Las Vegas it can be hard to find both great food and good service, that's not in an overwhelming noisy environment . This is it! It was a Saturday night and we were able to get last minute reservations, which can be a bad sign, but everything was great! It's located near the Canal Shoppes in the Venetian, and just enough out of the fray that you get the combination of quite, convenient, last-minute availability, and a great dining experience. Highly recommend!
