We had to get the buffet instead of ordering off the menu. I was visiting with a friend I hadn't seen in a while so we were having a leisurely breakfast. They didn't tell us they were taking the buffet away so by chance we caught a little of it before it was all taken away. They put tip on the bill at the full 18% even though it's a buffet and we were only 2 people. I left a message on their voicemail for the manager to call me to provide feedback on my experience and no one called back. I love the Todd English restaurant in Las Vegas but I don't recommend this one.

I went because I'm from Boston, and had been to Olives back in the day (80's?) when Todd English was the new hot chef. I thought this would be phenomenal, and I was really underwhelmed. The space is huge, and was not very busy and that took away from the ambiance. The server was inattentive and bordering on rude.

My granddaughter is both gluten and dairy free and our waiter, Elez, went out of his way to make certain that each of her courses met this requirement, even insisting on replacing an onion soup because he thought some cheese might have gotten into it. I had the salmon and it was delicious. We were all very pleased.

The fritter was just a glob of fried breading. Next had the pork loin which itself was good, but had a horrible overly cheesy cream sauce, and undercooked roasted fennel, I think it was. Dessesrt was ok. We were comped any dessert we wanted off the menu, because our food took so long to arrive. We ended up being served 2 desserts each -the rest wk one and the regular menu one, which was unecessary. A drink on the house would have been more appreciated. Decor & ambiance ver y nice. Service poor and foor edible but not memorable.
