    Food was amazing! Experience was really cool and servers were hilarious and fantastic. Only complaint was it was the music was just a tad too loud. I imagine they do this so other tables don’t hear you discussing the food, but it made it a little tough to converse.

    Personally love this place and it’s experience. I have visited three times in the last year purely because we just enjoy it. I can honestly say if i saw 75% of the items on a menu I would never in a million years order them, but getting to step outside of my comfort zone and enjoy the experience for what it is and let my tastebuds do all the work, I love it all. The staff are friendly, funny, and encouraging. My only grievance would have to be that it is an intimate environment and the chatter of other tables can be easily heard and potentially distracting.

    We wanted to have an unique experience while in Vegas and we came across BLACKOUT Dining in the dark. Ok, no matter how dark of a room that you think you have been in, times in by 100. You can't see anything! I am not a person that gets anxiety from situations, but this really rattled me. I felt very claustrophobic. Our server was great and really tried to help us through it all. There are 7 courses to the meal and we were able to get through course #5. My biggest disappointment was that since my anxiety was overwhelming and I needed to leave, I asked if we could take course 6 and 7 to go. They told me no. Basically, you eat it here or not at all. Kicker was, I was still responsible for $89.99 per plate regardless if we finished it or not and I couldn't take it with me. If we couldn't make it through it - either discount us for the main course and dessert or allow us to take it home. You are worried about your secret getting out, then you need to switch up your menu. Also, we were never told what we ate. Being able to have your sight is a blessing and we all need to cherish it.

    After you get past the fact that your eyes will not adjust and you are in fact eating in the dark, it is a great experience. The food is outstanding. The servers attentive and entertaining. The place is loud and the only topic of conversation is the environment. The courses come out quickly and without much time in-between so you quickly get full before the largest course arrives. Next time I'll slow down intake, even when there are only two small items on the plate. It's expensive, but it's an experience. Highly recommend.

    Little disappointed. This was my third time and I felt they were rushing us through the dinner. And the noise level was high The 6 course was over cooked. The pastry was hard. Tasted like cardboard

    This was SO much fun! I was not prepared for just how dark it was and I was convinced that I would be spilling food all over myself or knock over my wine glass, and yet, none of that happened. After my eyes adjusted to not being able to see, I started to relax and really concentrate on the flavors of the food. 7 courses, I was full after the 5th course but I had to force myself to try the next courses because it was so much fun. I think our bill (with a bottle of wine) was $250. It was a bit of sticker shock at first but actually I think it is totally worth it. It is an experience like no other and I would definitely recommend this to.

    It was such a fun experience! My husband were in town and wanted to try something different. We got Russell as our server and he was great. Funny, friendly and courteous. The experience of dining in a pitch black room was a lot more fun that could have imagined but the food was not as great as I thought it would be. Especially for the price. Overall experience 4 stars!

    This experience was probably the best thing we did on our trip to Vegas. We went in very concerned that the food was going to be awful but after every course we kept saying it got better and better. Getting used to the dark can be hard for some people but once you relax it was great to not have any distractions and be able to talk to your friends and really connect. Anna our server was so great and was able to describe all the food and how to eat it very well. I would recommend this to anyone!

    We wanted try this for the experience. The food, ambiance & service were sub-par. For this price, I was expecting a nicer location if not at least the waiting area should look a bit classy. The food was average if that, tomato soup and salad but the worst was the main entree...the puff pastry. It was so salty and tasted disgusting. Out of the 7 items maybe just 2-3 of the food items were good. For the price you are charging and the quality of food served you will have to do better to have return customers. Will not be recommending to friends.

    What an amazing experience. Q was our server and she took excellent care of us. I wasn’t super excited about plant based food at first but everything was soooooo good. I also should mention I hate tomatoes (raw) but apparently I ate them and didn’t even notice. This is a must try for sure. So happy we did this. I actually came out with less food spilled on me then when I normally eat!
