I had a phenomenal time with BLACKOUT!!! Got some much needed mindfulness with my meal and I got to see the perspective of a blind person at a restaurant. I know this was a rare attraction that isn't offered everywhere so I'm really happy that I got to experience it on my trip. I would recommend everyone to try out dining in the dark.

However, the one thing I wasn't happy about was when I got my bill there was a $40 entry fee. I was only aware that dinner costs $39.99. I would appreciate if the business advertised all pricing prior to dining. I felt $100 for a single person's meal was a little on the high end.

Such an amazing dinner and experience! We would definitely go back on our next visit to Vegas. Our waiter, Christopher, was fantastic and helped calm our initial nerves. Once you allow yourself to relax and surrender to the darkness you really enjoy yourself. So much fun!

This could of been a better experience for me and my 3 guess if meat was on the menu. Not everyone's a vegan or vegetarian.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Blackout. Christopher our waiter was fantastic, and the food was outstanding. I only have a few thing that detracted from it. It was very noisy, maybe the restaurant can put some sound muffling on the walls to decrease the noise. The check in counter and payment counter are the same place in the same lobby, it would be better it these could be seperated, so that the people leaving can look at menu without giving anything away to those people coming in. Checking in was also very chaotic. It would be nice when they show you the menu at the end if it had pictures, so that you can see what you were eating.

As vegans coming all the way from Germany, it was an unforgetable delicious experience. Its not that easy to find good vegan food in a city where eating fast food is that common. Big shout out to Anthony our waiter on that day, he was funny and just a nice guy. Pro-tipp: say that you are there for a date.. you will be glad ;)

Experience was great, fun & entertaining. Our server Roscoe was funny & relatable, he made the time there so rewarding. The food was okay, not a huge fan of the main dish or the dessert. Meal lacked meat, even though it was supposedly in an items it was not easily identifiable was overly masked. Would be willing to go once more during a difference season, if the menu items change.

I was really nervous about Blackout, but I'm really glad that I went. We made our reservation before finding out that the menu was vegan, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the food, and how full I felt afterward. Our server, Rebecca, was amazing. She did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable (I told her I was anxious about being in the dark), and of guiding us through all the courses. My husband and I are both fairly picky eaters, and my husband also has a soy allergy. They were able to accommodate his allergy, and he and I received a few different items as a result. We both enjoyed most of the items we received, despite how picky we both are. It is definitely not an inexpensive experience, but in my opinion it is definitely worth it to do it once.

This was such an amazing experience! My date and I were both a little nervous at first, but Willy did an amazing job at making us feel comfortable at our more vulnerable state. To anyone curious about the quality of food, I’m telling you, this is NOT a gimmick. Each course of our meal was absolutely fantastic!

The room was pitch black, so that was perfect...except when you really have to go to the bathroom and no one comes to help you! The pre-fixe menu was creative, however, our whole group was hoping for meat. If you eat and have 1 drink it's $100, so plan accordingly. Arrive hungry. Even if you don't like a course or two, you'll have plenty to eat. Our group's final word, was that it was fun to have the experience, but next time we'll order room service, pull the blinds, and turn out the lights. :)

If you are looking for a unique dining experience this is the place for you. My wife and I had a great time! I was worried that the darkness thing would be a gimmick and allow the restaurant to skip on quality, cleanliness, service, etc. - this was not the case at all.

This is certainly an interesting dining experience and definitely a cool gimmick. The food was just average and our table found it a bit salt heavy. The main course was incredibly underwhelming and did not taste anything like the menu stated it was supposed to be and we only ate 1/2 of it. It was fun to try but wouldn’t ever do it again and very pricey for the quality of food that was served.

I was charged $230.96 instead of the 200.00 I authorized on the receipt including tip. So I’ll never return and I’ll never refer anyone to this establishment. I may need to post on social media about the fraudulent activities that take place in order to warn other unsuspecting tourists and locals

The true meaning of dinner "theater". This was a truly fabulous experience. The food was phenomenal. I was a bit nervous because of some of the bad reviews, but after reading them again after we ate at Blackout, I think I know where people are coming from. Blackout does not advertise itself as a plant-based restaurant. You would need to be a savvy consumer and read the FAQs on their website to figure out that they are a vegan restaurant and what it costs to eat there. It was pricey, however, we were absolutely stuffed at the end of the experience, I would say that it was worth it. It was so much fun to turn off our sense of sight, and explore the dishes. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive.
I think the problem with these bad reviews were that these were meat eaters who did not know what they were getting into and did not finish what was on their plates. No way could they have left hungry. Their expectations and taste buds are so used to eating meat, that their brains can not be open to the wonderful flavors and textures of plant based foods. We did have an omnivore in our party and he enjoyed the experience as well as we 3 vegans did. If you are in Vegas and a vegan, you absolutely need to check this establishment out. And if you are not vegan, loosen up and try eating a damn vegetable. You may like it....your body certainly will.

I was so nervous to eat at Blackout. I arrived and started feeling extremely anxious. JP and Ken were wonderful. They were so comforting and knew exactly what to say. I was still anxious inside but Ken kept coming to check on us and I could see a little light on his goggles and that was really comforting. It was such a fun experience , I’m glad I did it.

The restaurant did smell like feet, and I don’t know why . I wasn’t the only one who thought so.

I enjoyed 3 out of 7 dishes. And I’m NOT usually a picky eater. They were either a hit or miss. No in between. There were tooooooo many different flavors I just was not use to. So much I could not enjoy most of it. I never knew how many different tastes I did not like.

They give lots of food, which was good. I was so full. But it was so expensive for a restuarant where you had no idea what you were eating, lots of stuff you probably never had so you were not sure if you will like it. And then on top of it you can’t take anything home to see if you would like it in the light lol

I Would recommend it to everyone for the experience but I would not do again :)

If you had a menu I can pick from so I can really enjoy the taste and smell without thinking too much about it and then being able to take it home because it is pretty expensive, I would do it again. Also I did find a little Spot on the wall (maybe smoke detector) with a small dot of light and when ever I got too anxious I would look there and felt comfortable. Maybe you can point that out to customers who are just too anxious like I was.
