What to choose? You can have it all - vegetarian, fish, fowl, or meat, but get the paella. Sit back and enjoy great conversation while your paella is prepared. We opted for rabbit and others ordered the seafood. Both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. We fought for the crunchy rice slightly burned on the edges. This is in the Aria lobby, but it's set up in a way to see and be seen. Service was good. They need more confidence and knowledge for wine pairings. All in all, a good bet for a fine meal, be it quiet or raucous.

Yoshiro's service was superb! His recommendation for Tapas and our entree choice meant we enjoyed flavors that were new and exciting! Thank you for a wonderful meal.

I’m a little sad rating this low. When I visit VEGAS, I always visit Serrano’s. It’s my favorite restaurant, or was. I’m not sure if I’ve just been too much, but we ordered 6 tapas, all but one were just average, the one was excellent. Still fun to go, but it may have fallen off of my favorite restaurant.

We had an excellent server and the food was also very good. We always go there when we are in Vegas. They serve authentic Spanish food. A great vibe--not for those who don't like an "up" place.

After two days of shows and a previous night 5 course meal at Picasso, we settled here after a late Chriss Angel show since the menu was lighter fare. It was a perfect fit for a post show glass of wine and tapas!

I was disappointed. The food sounded good and for the most part looked good but lacked in flavor. Maybe it was a bad day but the food was surprisingly bland. There were items identified as spicy on the menu that had no spicy profile whatsoever.

Overall, this is an amazing experience. The food is outstanding, and it has a high energy vibe. It is so fun to order different plates and have a wonderful culinary experience with each. The mushroom risotto is a must have, and our favorite was the lobster salad which expertly shows off richness of flavors against acids and the texture differences between toast, lobster, and lettuce. Amazing!

Only a few minor negatives: (1) the chairs we sat in were incredibly large and heavy - you couldn't move them while sitting in them to move them up to the table; that is just poor designer choices for a restaurant chair and (2) there was a really loud table near us; not sure if the openness of the restaurant made it so distracting or this particular set of 4 individuals.

We were disappointed. The paella was more like a New Oleans Jambalaya than a Spanish Paella - no saffron detected, too much sausage, color off, not much seafood - consistency like gravy rather than a fine saffron based paella. The pan was good - but the paella was really off.

Not a budget spot, especially if you are really hungry and order a great many things! Groups seemed to be enjoying snacking and talking, but there were lots of good tables for two also.

We arrived for our 7:30p reservation and were promptly seated. Our waiter was excellent in suggesting menu items. The items suggested were very tasty , flavorful and well presented. Our waiter suggested the mixed seafood paella . He stated that it'll take 45 minutes. All of the small tapas dishes arrived within a short time frame of ordering. The paella , however , never arrived even though the waiter said it was coming. 90 minutes later we had to cancel the paella as it was getting late. The waiter was very apologetic and comped us dessert and tea. That was a very nice gesture indeed ! We left happy and gave the waiter a very large gratuity. We'll be back to try the paella !

My first trip to Julian Serrano in 2011 was so memorable that when I found myself back in Vegas with friends that had never eaten here, I HAD to make a reservation for our first night dinner. The pitcher of Sangria was delicious, as was all the food. They loved it there as well, which made me so happy!

Has potential but menu severely compromised by lack of variety you would expect at tapas bar.

The mushroom soup was exquisite as was the salad..

Disappointing were the meat dishes:

They were out of beef short ribs.

The pork ribs were tough—not as you would expect to be melt in your mouth quality. Even using the knife was challenging.

The chicken croquettes were cool on the inside and rather greasy...

We liked the drinks—clearly the bartender was on their game.

Wait staff was very nice and professional and attentive.. but the kitchen failed the whole experience....

My family thoroughly enjoyed the tapas. We had the chicken croquets, potatoes, Serrano Ham, cheese platter, and all were excellent! The red Sangria was perfect. The Serrano paella was good, but my least favorite of all the different food we ate. The perfect ending was the Churros and melted chocolate! Oh how delicious! This whole meal and a pitcher of Sangria was under $190 for the three of us.
