Made a reservation 3 weeks ahead for Valentines Dinner, when we got to the restaurant we had to wait 30 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. When the food came out, one of our orders was not correct so we had to wait another 10 minutes for the correct order, by that time the food got cold and it was not enjoyable. Not the best valentines dinner. Very disappointed

I learned about LAVO from a row mate on my flight to Las Vegas for a girls trip. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere was intimate. The servings were very generous, delicious and very reasonably priced. The cocktails were good but cost about half the price of an entree. Our waiter was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable of the menu and had great recommendations. Our hostess was a little snooty and aloof. She began to seat us until she realized that we had not been given our tickets for our cocktails and told us we would need to wait to and pay for those before she could seat us. The bar server ended up coming over to seat us and brought our tickets to us at the table. I highly recommend LAVO for a delicious Italian meal that does not break the bank!

This restaurant is beautiful. I was hooked when I read the menu with a picture of the unbelievable looking meatball. It did not disappoint. The service was incredible. A bit noisy. But was so pleased.

Tables are a little close to each other which makes the ambiance a little less attractive.

The food was delicious and one of the more reasonably priced high end restaurants on the strip. We loved everything we ordered - garlic bread, charcuterie, pizza and pasta dish.

Alexandra the bartender was phenomenal. Best Nigroni I ever had. And to wait 20 minutes for a waiter to come over, but once he did the service was great.

Great place.
The lounge area was really cool then the dining room was real traditional Italian feel. I like loud and this was even a bit much for me but we didn't care. Server was really great, food was really great.......only issue was reso was 20ish minutes late getting seated and we had a show to go to.
Didn't seem like a priority for the lead hostess but the great server made up for her. Would recommend.

Always a great experience at Lavo in Las Vegas. A nightclub atmosphere; tasty foods; great wine selection; fantastic service. Highly commend server Fender (Justin), who has been our server for years and is a very friendly and accommodating.

We booked this a long time in advance and were very disappointed. It was like a lunchroom, extremely loud, tables on top of each other. The food was underwhelming, service was disappointing. We just wanted to get out of there. We weren’t even able to talk to each other. It was my husband’s birthday and he wanted to leave before we enjoyed his dessert. We will never eat here again, nor would we ever recommend it.

Worst experience I’ve had there. Had a 6 pm reservation took almost an hour to finally get our food ordered, I found a hair in my pasta, my drink had flat tonic and the waitress disappeared for looong periods of time. Dessert was the only highlight of our night. We finally got our check at 8:30. Probably won’t go back.

Front of house host was fairly rude & dismissive. Arrived on time for our reservation and was told to wait with no where to sit for 20 minutes. We said to leave our number at the front desk while we walked around the Palazzo and was told not to go too far. Another 15 min went by so we returned to the restaurant once again greeted like we were somehow bothering the front of house host. Eventually we were seated with no explanation as to the delay or apologies for the wait. Pretty disappointed as we were to attend Lavo for an evening out and this really set the done for the rest of the night. Food pricing was expensive the portions were very large but told we would be charged extra bread...just not a great experience overall...how about we charge for our time next time?

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!!
