Great food if you’re looking for quality streaks. I’m sad they changed some items on their menu since I was in love with the crab fried rice but the pork belly rice was also very good. Overall we had a wonderful dinner as always and look forward to coming back next time we are in Vegas!

International Smoke is a high-end option and the food was good. The prices were very high but perhaps that is to be expected since it is located in the MGM Grand. The noise level was high but energy was good. I would recommend.

We used to really enjoy the cornbread but they changed the recipe and dumped some kind of butter sauce on top that completely ruined it. There is a such thing as too attentive, the servers just kept hounding us over and over. The lettuce on the wedge salads we ordered were limp and just all together not good. The one highlight was the Korean ribs. I don’t think we’ll be returning, with so many options they just fell offf of our list.

Steak was charred well, but no seasoning. It needed pepper and Garlic badly. THe soup was really just elevated Cream of Tomato.

Excellent, food, service, attentive, entertaining, really like all the tv’s, we watched SNF. It was live and inviting. Will come back over& over. Did I mention, the cornbread was delicious. Salmon off the hook. Didn’t particularly care for the spicy broccoli, but they prepared roasted broccoli no spices for us ON THE HOUSE.

Best filet and ribs I have ever had and I frequent a lot of great steakhouses around the country. Can’t wait to go back for the food. Not the typical stuffy/formal steakhouse. More of a casual sports bar vibe so it was great for our business dinner.

Our server was great! Hands down some of the best food and service I’ve ever received. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful. I was so grateful to have a place to go that everyone in my family could enjoy both vegan and not. To put it in perspective how good it was, my mom in law ate the fried rice that had peas in it (she hates peas) and said “it’s so good I’m even eating the peas!” I can’t wait to try out our other local locations. Thank you!

The chicken and Mac and cheese were really good. The steak was a 2/10 so I do not recommend it at all, the most disappointing steak I’ve ever had especially since I paid what a nice steakhouse would charge for it.

Ordered the short ribs which were extremely tough and still very fatty. Low quality meat and poor preparation. Waiter was in a huge rush to turnover table and very disappointed that we were not drinking enough alcohol. Typical tourist spot from our experience.

Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was good but cold, even after we mentioned it and specifically asked for a second order of the crab friend rice to be hot. The bowl was hot, but the rice still wasn’t. Was really looking forward to trying the restaurant as a fan of Ayesha’s, so that was a bit disappointing. The cornbread and Tokyo chicken were great! Pork ribs and crab fried rice were cold. We got the vanilla wafer dessert and glad we did, it was delicious. The mai tai in the spam can was actually really good and made us laugh.

Service was lacking. Our server was nice and apologetic but overworked and forgetful. Took several tries to get a water refill. The place was overly noisy. The food way too spicy. The chicken breast was bland and covered up with too much hot sauce. In fact all the food was bland and in desperate need of salt if only our server ever came by. The ribs were not fall off the bone and lacked that smoke house flavor. Definitely a one and done. Much better eating places at the MGM.

Food was excellent,the hostess was very accommodating when it came to seating unfortunately that's where the service ended,the gentleman server had come to the table saw that we had water and dropped the silverware on the table no greeting hello or anything,came back 10 mins later to take our order,someone else bought our food out to us,again food was excellent but our waiter was no where in sight for 20 mins, (another table who sat in front of us got up and left because he never even went to their table)towards the middle of the meal he finally bought water to refill our glasses,again for the rest of the meal he was no where to be found,when he bought the check is when he did the most talking of course now he's looking for a tip,this was the most interaction we had with him the entire time,we charged the meal and left the tip in cash,he paced back and forth to see if we left a tip(which I feel is rude) in the end he was given a tip that reflected his service.

We loved this place! Very unexpected gem and the food was incredible! We went as a party of 6 with a diverse age range (kids included) and everyone found their food to be delicious and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was fantastic and the drinks were to die for! Definitely one to try if you haven’t.

The rib trio was good as was the Mac/cheese with brisket. The Brussels sprouts were not hot by the time they were served. I don’t recall the waitress checking on us regularly either compared to the server at the next table. We have eaten at International Smoke in San Francisco, Del Mar and now Las Vegas. Del Mar is winning for overall satisfaction.
