Out 2nd visit to this restaurant was just as great as the first. Vegetarian-friendly menu kept our picky visitor happy, and everything was delicious. I'll always bring our out-of-town guests here.

What an amazing experience! Not being able to see anything really makes you use your other senses when trying all the different courses. It was fun trying to figure out what everything was. The staff was amazing and the food was delicious. Such a unique fun night! I would definitely recommend this to friends and family and will definitely be going back in the future.

The experience was stellar. The staff was attentive from the time we arrived and explained the process and concept thoroughly. One of our party was gluten-free and all accommodations were made to include similar foods. The food was exceptional and the service was impeccable. All of our group elected the wine pairing and all agreed that was the way to go. By the fourth course we were all getting full but the food was so good we all attempted to finish. We cannot say enough about this meal and will encourage and attend others to eat at any Blackout.

I have so many issues with our experience last night. I felt it would have been a romantic, gourmet dining experience. Instead, the noise and behavior of others was next level! I love a good time but these people were insane! They were all so loud and obnoxious we couldn’t hear each other speak and when it’s so dark, good luck communicating with someone sitting directly next to you. Now the food. The first four courses were pretty good all though it felt like they were reusing the same foods for each course including the entree which was gross. The dessert and salad were my favorite part. Come to find out when the menu was uncovered to us, it was all vegan foods. Made lots of sense because it was all mushy and hard to explain. I’m not a fan and for almost $100 a person, without drinks, I expected better food..NOT BEYOND MEAT
and tofu. Would not recommend to anyone.

The experience of dining in the dark is wonderful. You feel a sense is removed, comfortable eating in the dark, and heightens your other senses. However for the price, I feel the experience wasn’t at that tier. The servers were funny and cracking jokes, the silverware was dirty, and the carts they deliver the food were noisier than other guests. Although your senses are supposed to be heightened, the food wasn’t up to par, it was bland and didn’t taste like the menu at the end of the experience.

It was spectacular! I didn’t let my friends know what was in store, so it was a complete surprise for them, when we got there.
Such an innovative and interesting evening. The food was outstanding, although some of the dishes were not as warm as I would’ve liked. The service was exceptional…(thank you Shaun)
Can’t say enough good things, and will absolutely do it again , the next time I’m in Las Vegas.

The whole experience was amazing! It was so fun to try and guess what we were eating and what kind of wine I was drinking. Our server Rosco was so fun, and gave fun clues about our meal before each course. Wish we lived here, I definitely want to go back!

Very loud, I could barely hear my friend. My friend and I kept getting bumped into by other guests and servers, our waitress did not come when we pressed the button to call her several times. The food was fine but nothing special. Our waitress took several of my courses away WHILE I WAS OBVIOUSLY STILL EATING THEM. Overall I just wanted it to be over.

The food was a little bland for my taste. There were times when I wanted to reach for salt and pepper. Lol. But I definitely enjoyed the experience. Fun, entertaining and gives you great appreciation for your sense of sight. The Long Island Ice tea was AMAZING. I could have used one of those with each course. And the dessert was spectacular!

BLACKOUT should open more franchises, especially on the east coast.

I’m am very disappointed with the food. For the amount of money spent for a seven course meal the flavors and food selection should have been better. I paid for the meal to have to go somewhere else to get food afterwards.

It's a cool experience but I'm not sure I would do it again. The food was good but not outstanding. I would have liked some sort of meat but I understand why because of the finger food/utensil thing. It was loud in there and I really liked our server but the other servers were more engaging with their tables and I kind of wish we had one of them. The wine pairing was cool to guess whether it was white or red and then finding out we were wrong!

Service was excellent. However the entree was very underwhelming compared to the other food that was served. We ended up paying $280 for 2 people including drinks and tip. I do not think the food is worth what was paid. I do not think we will be back.

It was good and for the experience it was fun. A little pricy but okay. The food is all plant-based and I personally don't like the taste of fake meat products (or the smell for that matter)

Plenty of food to eat included in the 7 course meal. I thought all of the food was great! You definitely have to love all types of food. Don't be afraid to use all your other senses either. Overall, staff was fantastic, food was excellent, music had a good vibe to it, and it definitely was a worthwhile experience. I would highly recommend anyone to do it... (as long as you can afford it as it is pretty expensive but well worth it).
