Maybe this was just a bad night. We have in the past had better food and better service. The chicken parmesan was bland and the chicken was hard. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meal. Our waiter was not attentive and forgot our order of garlic bread which did not arrive until we got our meal, which was ok, but he never checked to make sure our meal was ok.

We had 3 nites in Vegas and spent everyone at LAVO! Fabulous oysters!! Great Steaks and sides of asparagus, mushrooms, mashed and roasted potatoes. Got the fried Oreos to put the perfect end to an incredible trip. LAVO never disappoints!! Steaks have the perfect Char on the outside. Sea Bass is tender and flaky. Top dining experience!!

Nice restaurant, but extremely slow service and food not worth waiting for. The chicken parm was good, but the grilled yellow fin was fishy and bathed in a vinegar that made it inedible. It’s easy to find much better food at a fraction of the cost. We will not be back.

Reviews varied about noise and busy-ness which was something I noted since I brought our 3yr old but I think it’s all about timing. Just like ebb/flow of crowds by the Chinese New Year displays, so is the level of noise. We went at 6pm on a Friday and we had a great experience. NOT too loud, service was VERY attentive and food was fantastic! Toddler enjoyed the margherita pizza, bone in rib-eye cooked PERFECTLY medium rare and was sliced for easier sharing (great suggestion by server) and I’m a sucker for charred octopus and theirs was delicious! Saw a lot of meatballs ordered but there was only a certain amount of space in my stomach! Will come back to try carbonara pasta!! Oh and Lavolini was refreshing and I had a great glass of J Pinot with my steak! Not cheap but what Vegas joint is? Well worth every dollar!

Best Steak n the country!! LAVO never disappoints! Filet rare had amazing crisp texture while maintaining the inside temp. Sides are large enough to share. Mushrooms and mash potatoes incredible.

I dined at LAVO with Brasilian friends who were visiting Vegas. 2 people were vegan and both found delicious choices on the menu. The salmon I ordered was wonderful, very tender & flavored nicely. Others orderd fish dishes and were also very pleased. Our waitress was friendly & attentive. I would definitely return to LAVO when in Vegas.

SUPER LOUD. Ate outside. Dining room packed like sardines and no place to walk through the dining room without brushing up against a person seated or their table, what a cluster design. Great waiter and a pleasant experience outside with the heat lamps. Was so hoping to be wowed but just wasn’t.

LAVO is an annual business event for me. I have yet to have a bad meal there and the service is spectacular. I had a dinner the night before at a steakhouse in the same hotel and the bill was twice as high for the same number of people. Premium food and drink at an appropriate price point.

We were seated 90 minutes after our open table time. We talked to some other parties and their time was after us and the got seated earlier. I seen other parties go in before us that came after us. When we checked 45 minutes after our time, they said we are second in line. It was strange since we saw 6 parties go in after that. It was very frustrating since we were doing a business dinner. I guess since we didn’t grumble loud enough, we didn’t get seated accordingly.

Food was cold. Our table was situated right at the bar so it was noisy, crowded and with constant traffic all around. We made the waiter aware of the food being cold and the manager took the meals off the bill. We weren’t looking for that but to make the kitchen aware. Food was very tasty just cold.

Excellent food: the Meatball is the perfect appetizer, but everything else on the menu is excellently prepared and presented. Although it was a little noisy, we were dining during SHOT show, which is always noisy and crowded. All in all, you can't beat a meal at LAVO.

We had the best brunch here. I forgot the name of our waiter but he was super awesome and nice and funny. Definitely made our morning to a great start. The food was actually good too. Tastes fresh. I can never find any spaghetti that is as good as the ones I had in bora bora but I'd say theirs here, is the closest thing to it. I really liked it. Definitely a good brunch place to go to while in vegas. It's literally right across from the Treasure island casino and hotel. But with the vegas strip street, you have to go to the venetian bridge to cross over than down the venetian hotel out to the strip then make a right and head to palazzo hotel. It's a nice setting restaurant. I look forward to coming back to this restaurant whenever I visit vegas again.

Pizza was more of a flatbread, not pizza.
Hostess was rude, didnt want us to enter since they were closing (my dinner reservation was at 10:45 pm.
We arrived at 10:51 pm, she told us “you have exactly 9 mins to sit and order from the menu”. We did just that.

Best Italian food I have ever eaten. If you go out for one nice meal when in Vegas, go to Lavo. Great service, amazing food & great value. If there was one drawback, I would say it is a little loud at times. The great food and bang for your buck more than makes up for it though.

I went with my friend to LAVO for his birthday and overall it was great - the pasta especially was very good! The service however was pretty horrible :( Our cocktail order got lost, and wasn't delivered until we had our mains for about 10 minutes (30-40 minutes after ordering), an appetizer we didn't order was delivered to our table and we were almost charged for it after being told when it was dropped off that it was "compliments of the house", our waitress gave our take-home portions to the table next to us, and frankly we were rushed through our dinner instead of being able to relax and enjoy the event. There was no mention of the occasion (birthday) at all even though it was listed on the reservation. I don't need free stuff but even a cookie with a candle seems appropriate when you're spending hundreds of dollars on a birthday meal. Again - the MOST important part, the FOOD, was SPECTACULAR!

The Sunday Italian Brunch Buffet was multi bene. The atmosphere is quiet and soft which makes for a nice brunch. The only down side is drinks are not included in the price and there are no refills for soft drinks.

It was really beautiful inside and I loved the bathrooms they were so well decorated
It just was a little expensive for what they were offering and to have a server when you also have a buffet is just odd. I felt like I could’ve walked to the bar and ordered a glass of wine and gone to the buffet. I tipped 20% but I wasn’t sure really what for? The food was good but it was amazing

The server was excellent and she was concerned that we had a nice relaxing dinner and enjoyed the experience. Our dinner was a birthday celebration and a complimentary slice of cake with a candle and a chocolate birthday sign was brought to the table. The portions are large and the food preparation and presentation are excellent. The signature cocktails are very good and you should try the cucumber vodka spin on a mojito that they serve it is a very refreshing drink, and they also serve a great old fashioned with a big rock that is excellent. A must try is their signature meatball appetizer, all I can say is wow...

we were seated at a table in the corner where there is a door behind he curtains. People keeps opening the door even though it was locked. I asked the waitress to help but she said will not happen but it kept on happening! Getting notice from the waitress was so difficult. I keep on asking for salt, wine, this and that but was not attentive at all .... This is my second visit but wasn't like this in my first.
