Way too loud…the entertainment drowned out any possibility of conversation…worst experience while in 10 day visit to Vegas.

Nice restaurant with good food—spaghetti carbonara was outstanding. The tiramisu not so much. We went on a Sunday which I guess is dedicated to the Supper Club vibe—singing lounge singers and scripted skits. The acts made it hard to hear conversation at the table. If I had known that was the theme, I would’ve picked another night. This place would be better without the lounge act gimmick and just the DJ playing upbeat music at a reasonable sound level.

My family and I have been going to LAVO for several years. Last night was hands down the worst experience I’ve ever had. It seems as though they are either understaffed or my server had serious attitude. Maybe both. It took nearly 30 min to even get out first drink, 45 for them to put bread on the table. I had ordered a vodka soda lime, got a lemon, no biggie…asked for a lime. Didn’t get it. Found a black hair in my drink…server brought me a new drink, again with a lemon…
The people next to us had a broken table so we offered our other one since it wasn’t in use…they took the table and didn’t replace it leaving an awkward chair at our table. The manager/someone brought us a toast, that was nice and then I was a bowl of limes which seemed very condescending because I asked for a lime. Rude. It was a terrible experience l.

The Sunday brunch at Lavo is one of my favorite meals. The staff is friendly and the food is good. This trip the only issue I had was whoever cooked the steak did not know what they were doing. I ordered a rib eye cooked medium (shared with my sister, who like steak well done), this was rare as rare could be. Ioved it, sister hated it.

I would first like to say that the restaurant was absolutely beautiful however our group's experience was not!

Reservations for the bride to be and party of 5 were made 2 months in advance and looking forward to dining here based on the fabulous reviews.

Once seated our waiter came to the table to welcome us and take drink orders. It took about 20 minutes to get our drinks. 15 minutes later the waiter returned for our food orders. We were not asked to refill our drinks. 45 mins later we received our salad, however the soup did not come. We had to flag our server down about the soup. 10 minutes after that the soup comes out and was no longer desired so they soup was removed. Our dinner came out an hour later, however not all the food came out at one time. We were at the resturant over 2 hours. We noticed other guests; some parties with similar amounts get served and leave before our group.

The food itself, once received was good; however the service was not good at all!

Do not order the steak stick to the pasta.
Desert came out cold
Wait staff slammed with large tables makes a couples night hard to enjoy.

Came here for the Saturday brunch. Due to the new Covid restrictions in Nevada someone brings you the food.

Our server gave us our drinks and refilled my wife's coffee once. That was literally it. He (or anyone working their) never asked us how anything was or if we wanted more food.

After a very long time of nothing I went to the hostess stand. I asked the hostess if she could have a manager bring me our check. Instead the same hostess brought me the check.

Food was just average. Nothing was bad, good or hot.

Overall a very big disappointment.

Not much on the menu that looked appetizing to us.
Had great reviews so we gave it a chance. The singers were obnoxious. We prefer more of a band feel, jazz…
Much better restaurants all over Vegas.

Had a great time here! There was live music which was a great added touch and so much fun. The food was great! Our server suggested the seafood penne Alfredo and we went with it and it was great. The only thing we weren’t happy with was that the busser brought out our main course while we still had appetizers on our plates. We realize this was just a busser mistake but for a restaurant of this quality and price tag those mistakes shouldn’t be happening. Would definitely still come back!

When making the reservation I did not know that the Sunday Soirée would be happening. I have been here three times before. I was expecting a quiet, intimate dinner and felt like I was at a tacky rainforest cafe type restaurant. I was apologizing the whole night that I had recommended this place. I would recommend including notice about the event for those making online reservations

Food and service were excellent. Sunday evenings they have live singers interacting with dinners as well as up close magicians doing up close magic at your table. Excellent experience, will be coming back next time in Vegas

The food and service was so bad the highlight of my night was the friendly bus boy clearing my plates and taking the horrible food away.

I will say the drinks were good. Server must of been super busy or lost. I would have liked to have ordered multiple rounds of drinks but she was never around.

DO NOT GET THE OYSTERS unless you want to be personally offended.

Make sure you bring your own seasonings it was the Panera bread of Italian food.

They have a cigar girl going up to tables while people are eating which is distasteful and completely classless.

When your done listening to 1-2 step by Ciara the restaurant turns into a bizarre karaoke show.....

I personally was sweating because I wanted to get the bill and get out of there but regardless as always we tip 20% and move on with our lives.

Very nice restaurant. Our reservation was for outside due to weather condition they accommodated us by giving us table inside. I just don't know why I was asked for occasion when nothing was different in restaurant for my reservation. !
