Found the noise level higher than it needs to be. Food was very tasty, but cost was quite high for a lunch meal....

Food was great but it was so cold in there the food chilled too fast. Service was slow despite only 3 other tables. Has to ask for a glass of water 3 times! Would have stayed Nd are more but too cold and bad service made us leave early.

We have been going to Julian Serrano Tapas for a few years now and it seems to be getting better over time. The Tuna Cone and Garlic Shrimp were excellent and the Paella reliable as always. The Chicken Croquetas were a little cold and could have been served warmer right out of the frying pan.

Ambience is lively / enjoyable and service is always professional and consistent.

This time we also went to Julian Serrano’s Italian Tapas restaurante “Lago” at the Bellagio and that one was even better this time.

El menu estaba reducido y nunca avisaron antes que sacaban platos del mismo para los dias de CES! No hubiese ido de haberlo sabido con anticipacion! Deben avisar a los comensales!!!
No volveria en dias de CES si reducen menu!
Gaste casi usd 700 y no comi lo que esperaba!!!
Muy flojo.

The food was amazing. We had the risotto, anchovies, artichokes, and paella. While the paella was good it was the risotto and the anchovy dishes that knocked my socks off. I am an excellent cook and it is rare when I find restaurants that make it better than I can. I will be modifying my risotto recipe to try to mimic.

We always dine here on trips to LV. We like to sit at one of their peninsula high tops in front of kitchen. Everything made for each individual order. Big tapas menu and mature wine list. Bravo to food runner JUANCHO who is just great

The New Years Eve menu was fantastic and flavorful. Add in the Spanish dancers and they provided a perfect late night tapas experience before the countdown!

Wanted to enjoys several tastes and the tapas were the way to go. Started with almonds and olives to get the taste buds going. Followed that with octopus, chicken skewers, Serrano ham and tenderloin with crab. All courses were well prepared and had wonderful flavor. We finished with what I would consider one of the best desserts we’ve ever had and that was the coconut flan. This was our second time there and was as enjoyable as the first.

This restaurant is a tapas place and we proceeded to order various tapas. The food is good but not extraordinary. The biggest issue we noticed was that every single dish we ordered its base was bread, too much bread in our view. Maybe we ordered all the dishes that were bread based but there was no input from the staff to let us know about the abundance of bread on all of our choices.

The food was ok - we had some dishes that were excellent (gazpacho soup and tuna ceviche were amazing) and a few that were average at best. Cool place, but service was slow We had a good time but probably wouldn’t go back with so many other places out there to try.

Reserved this place for my birthday on a Thursday evening. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. There was plenty of staff around. Our server was extremely rude and not attentive at all. The bread was hard. The food was sub par. Since it was my birthday my party informed the server. We saw the server take the birthday dessert to one table, watch them blow out a candle and then he picked it and brought it to our table to be served. At that point, we had enough and had to get management involved. The manager was just as Rude. What really got to me is that no one ever apologized. We will not be returning to this establishment.

We went it Vegas for our anniversary and wanted a light lunch before dinner. All the tapas were amazing but the shrimp ceviche was creative and wonderful. We had the meatballs, cheese and charcuterie platter also. More than enough for a light lunch.
