This is my 3rd time eating here over the past 3 years. It is always a very interesting meal. The food is quite good but the new setup with Covid (diners on the same side of the table) was not as enjoyable (Although I have to admit with some couples it might be more pleasurable). I'm sure the waiters see some very interesting behavior! Also, it seemed as if our waiter was listening to our conversation since we could not see her, and right before she spoke to us she commented on the last thing I said (probably just walked up, but that would be a good training point [don't reference anything the dinners say until you let them know you're there, LOL]). Overall good but pricy.

The experience was so much fun! The service was amazing, and the food taste great! It was fun to try new foods, and not be afraid to try them. Since we didn't know what we were about to eat. We had a group of 5 with lots of laughs! I highly recommend this to anyone!

I absolutely had the best time ever. Not sure why I was eating with my eyes closed cause you can’t see anything any way. I enjoyed each meal course which was seven. I definitely will be back in six months once they change the menu so I can try different food’s.

The experience was unique and super cool. When they say Blackout, they mean Blackout. The food was good but not great. Our third course was delicious but there were a couple bland courses and a few good courses. The waitress was awesome. She was very friendly, fun, and came around often. It was an awesome one time experience but not something you would want to do regularly.

Without a doubt totally NOT worth the money, overpriced for mediocre food. portions are incredibly small food was either overly seasoned or not seasoned at all, no in between. If you're looking for places to dine in the Vegas area please save your time and money.

It was an unique experience. Each food item was delicious. What stood out to me was our server. She was amazing! She answered all questions. Kept us entertained. Everything was prompt. She even brought my daughter a rose for her 16th birthday. For the service alone, I will be back!

This was a highlight of our trip!! I am SO not a vegan or vegetarian, but when I absolutely loved every dish!! Our waiter, Josh was phenomenal! I do suffer from anxiety and became a bit nervous before going in. Josh assured me all would be fine and they do have a button you can push to page your waiter if needed (I didn’t end up needing that). When thinking about the price, just consider that you’re paying for the food AND the experience. I found it to be an amazing value! Highlight of our girls trip🤪🙌🏾

One thing everyone should know it that the menu is plant based. If you’re not a veggie lover, go elsewhere. The service was amazing and the experience was very cool. It’s pricey, but an experience you will always remember.

It was the most unique experience I've ever had. The mystery menu was fun, and it was fun guessing what you're eating. However I do think that it is a bit pricey for what you get, but when you're just visiting you're usually willing to pay whatever for the experience.

Blackout dinning was a great experiences, it allow for an opportunity to try foods that you may not typically try from reading a menu. All dishes were amazing and I will definitely be more opt to try new foods

I should have read further before
Agreeing. To come here. I nibbled each item and was starving when i left. The concept is great. Food was probably the worst things I’ve ever consumed in my life. Was the most disappointed I’ve ever been spending $176

This is a very unique dining experience. The room is pitch black. It was a little more unsettling then I thought it would be but they have a panic button in case you need it. Once the food came out and I was focused on something else, the darkness didn’t bother me. The room was very loud, with a lot of people talking. I’m not sure if people talk more in the dark or if it’s the room itself. The food was amazing! Waiter was very kind and helped guide us through the process. Trying to guess what we were eating was fun and we had a lot of laughs. It was a 7 course meal, something I am not used to so I found myself getting way too full. By the time the main course came out I could hardly eat. I’d recommend pacing yourself. At the end the waiter lead us out and we were able to see the menu. I went with my partner but would like to do it again with a bigger group. Overall this was a fun experience and one I would do again.

My wife is a vegetarian so the menu was perfect, and I didn’t have to peruse it before our meal to make sure she had more than just a few options. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the novelty of it. We felt rushed between courses at times, which is my only mild complaint.

Our server Luke made for an excellent experience and was very caring. The food was excellent, and they didn't serve anything "weird". High quality plant based dishes. Awesome experience, but pretty pricey, so definitely best for an occasion.

It would be nice if you would accommodate allergies like your site states. My husband did not eat waiting on this experience for our anniversary and he sat through me experiencing dining in the dark while hungry. That’s why I love him so much. The staff did however comp us since he did not dine. The waiter was excellent and helped us both enjoy the experience. We also informed of his mushroom allergy upon booking and paying our deposit. It was our first visit to Vegas. The experience was great.

Also, it would be nice if you had photos or small clips included for diners visualize their experience (ex. facial expressions, searching for dinnerware, etc).

My grandson loved it and tried everything on his plate. My grown daughter, who wanted to go to Blackout, hated it and would try out any of the food except for the salad and one of the desserts.
This is my second time going to Blackout and if my sour daughter hadn’t complained so much I would have enjoyed myself. Chris our waiter was great and funny.
