I went for my birthday, and while the food was amazing it was very noisy and raucous. The music was fun but didn’t fit the atmosphere, which was more upscale then a burger joint where you would normally hear loud pop music. So don’t plan on a quiet dinner if you eat here.

The waiter was amazing but unfortunately the food was terrible sea bass was over cooked, the sides were luke warm, penne al a vodka had chunky tomato sauce not creamy like a traditional vodka sauce and the fried Oreos were room temperature?! But I will say the drinks delish! Wouldn’t go back not worth the hype go somewhere else

Our waitress Skylar was so amazing!! Thank you! We started off with oysters which were delicious. I had the sea bass which probably the most moist piece of fish I’ve ever had and so flavorful.

This seemed very overpriced for what we ordered. The bathrooms were hard to find. However our waiter was phenomenal! His recommendations were spot on, and he was very prompt and professional without rushing the meal.

Disappointing!!! It was my wive’s birthday & they acknowledged it when we checked at the host stand but absolutely NOTHING was done to celebrate it. That’s why we came, to CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY! The waiter gave a birthday cake with a candle in it to the table behind us, but handed us the check & RUSHED us out!
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!

Having made a reservation, we were seated right away. Even when I didn’t have one, they did their best to seat as as quickly as they could. Service was very good. Servers were polite. Managers made sure to rush order after realizing a mistake was made. The food and drinks were of the best quality.

Loved the brunch buffet. Not a fan of truffle oil and the Mac and cheese and hollandaise were made with truffle oil. Service was fantastic and ordering buffet items at the table was great.

For all the hype and advertising of this place, it's a complete waste of time and money. The so-called buffet is really just $50 per person all you can eat off the limited menu. The service was the worst and slowest of any place I've eaten Vegas and that was for a Sunday morning brunch. The waiters could have cared less about providing any kind of service. I would not recommend anyone attend this place.

LAVO Sunday Brunch provided a variety of breakfast and lunch items -- everything was delicious. The servers were very attentive (since the "buffet" was brought to your table) - they made sure that there was always something to savor. Go early so you can miss the crowds and get served want you want from their brunch menu quickly.

One of our favorites to dine at in Vegas. Excellent food, always consistent. The Chicken Parmigiano, The Brick oven salmon and fried oreos with vanilla milkshake dessert are unreal. Definitely highly recommend

I definitely recommend Lavo. Simple Italian dining with elegance. The nonalcoholic cocktails were a hit with my children. The tiramisu is the best I have ever experienced and we have been to Italy. Would dine here again. The service was exceptional and well above most restaurants in Vegas.

If you like complex sauces, this restaurant nails them. We loved this for a nice night out in Vegas. The restaurant is beautiful! They removed a drink called the 58th Street from the menu, but the bartender made it for us anyway upon request. We heard about it from friends, and it did not disappoint!! They should put it back on the menu!! The meatball appetizer is delicious, as was the Chilean sea bass with the delicious sauce. We also had the seafood pasta which was yummy as it only had scallops and shrimp and a wonderful sauce.

I must say the restaurant was beautiful. Very windy with the draft coming in from outside. The service was slow. We had to ask several times for bread. The chicken Marsala was horrible. Very dry and gritty. Did not taste like chicken. The manager came offer and offered more sauce, but still not good. The chicken Parmesan was ok. The pasta was good.
