    Shouldn’t take a reservation for 9:45 pm and close the kitchen at 10:20pm. Pushing us to order without receiving any food. Ripping away plates. Trashy crowd. Too much competition in Vegas - don’t need to settle. Food interesting but experience was garbage. Pass.

    I took my girlfriend there for her birthday because Of all the good things I heard about beauty and Essex. From the minute, we walked in into the minute we left. It was a fantastic experience. Food was amazing. I love the Shareables. Our service was excellent. It felt like we had a server and busser lstrictly for our table. I wanted it to be a special night for my girlfriend and it truly was she was ecstatic.

    Style over substance. A very cool spot, with delicious cocktails, and so-so food. Our group of six tried 7-8 dishes (they encourage family-style dining and sharing dishes, not my favorite), and nothing really blew us away. Some were better than others. The yellowtail sashimi and grilled cheese dumplings were delicious. The crab corn dogs were a major miss, and a couple of them were still frozen in the middle. The rest were somewhere in between. Service was good-not-great, but they took the frozen crab dogs off the bill without having to be asked, which I appreciate. There are too many other options in Las Vegas to be this hit-or-miss. Will probably not try again.

    Honestly didn't love it. Very loud, very dim. Service was quick, but food was room temperature in most cases and since things like the grilled cheese bites and birria raviolis simply weren't very good. Just a general lack of execution. Won't return.

    Like walking into vintage jewelry store… greeted pleasantly and seated right away. Accommodated our request to seat facing outwards from table because the people watching and good presentations were fascinating. Delicious drinks, sumptuous appetizers and timely, professional and personalized service. Would definitely recommend.

    The drinks were great and a good size. We loved the grilled cheese and tomato soup dumplings. The seafood was underwhelming, but I’m from New England and am spoiled with good lobster. The pork belly sliders had too many flavors going on. Loved our dessert- butterscotch pot de crème. Very crowded, obviously a popular place.

    Overall the food was good except the waiter didn’t explain the sauce correctly for the ravioli. It was way too spicy & had to be sent back. The service was terrible. Also, I had put on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday & the hostess acknowledged it, the waiter didn’t mention it at all. I was very disappointed.
