We loved it! The food was beyond delicious, we ordered the lobster bisque, seafood Alfredo penne and seafood linguine in red spicy sauce, plus they give you bread with a pomodoro dipping sauce sooooo gooooooood. Every single dish was amazing, flavourful and filling. We tried a cocktail sort of a meloney-lemonade w vodka, yummy.
The service was quick and the staff super kind and helpful. Would recommend it to everyone who's visiting Vegas.

Put outside seating, and put it in the notes and text the manager to request outside seating and we get there and they say there is no outside seating because of the weather. Someone should’ve called us. We walked an hour from the other end of the strip to sit outside. There’s no apology no nothing. For a $300 meal, that sucked

I loved the atmosphere but we felt rushed and the presentation of the food looked more like a chain... Your food slapped on a plate than fine dining. The girl that served us was friendly.

This was the best place that we indulged in on our Vegas vacation. The salmon and the steak were amazing. The dessert was delectable and the servers were all wonderfully friendly and helpful.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for delicious food and wonderful service.

Pretty from outside. Very crammed and noisy inside.

We waited over 10 min for water. 15 min for bread.

The food was delicious, and that was the only good part of this experience. I had previously arranged for a Cheesecake slice with special message for our 21st anniversary to be brought to table after completion of meal and it never happened. Then we waited over 10 min for our server to ever return to table so we could ask for check.

Not impressed at all.

We loved the experience at Lavo. It's inside our favorite hotel on the Las Vegas strip! The only thing I would recommend to them is to play some different music, which is more fitting an upscale restaurant instead of rock music, as we were enjoying our first glass or wine before dinner.

Service was excellent and food was great. It's a great value for your money, with great views of the strip in a great setting. We love it. They could have made a better choice of music selections!

My expectations were a little high before coming to the restaurant. I made reservations and waited for another 25 min to be seated. The ambiance was nice, but the noise was way too loud. The music was good, but sounded a little loud that everyone had to speak louder. The seating was so close to the next table that I can hear their conversation. For the price of the restaurant I was expecting a little more classy and the noise a tad lower. The waitress was nice and offered suggestions on the food. The food tasted good, but not great. After the waitress took our leftovers to box it we were given the check. I was expecting to order something from the dessert menu (fried Oreo) before getting the check. We didn’t want to wait so we paid and left.

It started off rough because even though we made reservations, and I checked every 10 minutes as to the status it still took 40 minutes to get seated. I never received a text message from the gentleman host who was just getting ready to seat another table of two who had just walked in when I checked in again. Being caught, he handed the menus to the person seating guests and told her to take me instead.
Our server was great. The food is lovely. I had an appetizer of pork belly over watermelon that was fantastic. I should have made another choice for my entree but that was my fault on pairing my food.
Fried Oreos were divine and was a nice ending to the meal and experience. Almost made me forget how long we were overlooked.

We went to LAVO to celebrate my birthday. We arrived at 7:30 for our reservation and the line was out the door just to get to the host. We finally checked in for our res and we’re instructed to wait in the lounge area for our table. We weren’t seated for our table till 7:55 and that was after I returned to the host to make sure they hadn’t forgotten us. Our server was attentive for the most part but he seemed slightly weeded(busy with other tables) Our chicken parmigiana was literally cold. But because it took so long to get seated and get our dinners my fiancé wanted to power through it. I was thoroughly unimpressed with the food and my pasta was luke warm at best. I do think had it been served hot and fresh I would not be writing this bad a review. Then it comes time for the check. I specified on the reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion, yet there was no mention or attempt to celebrate my birthday. We weren’t looking for a freebie but after working in high end hospitality for 12 years I blown away by how they simply wanted to just cash us out and flip the table. I was suggesting after dinner drinks and dessert to my fiancé but it was clear LAVO would not be the place to enjoy our evening. It sucks because the whole trip we had been looking forward to this night, our last night in town to enjoy my birthday. And our experience was sub par at best. Our server was kind and doing his best to keep on top of all of his tables, I can’t fault him.

This was my second experience at Lavo at the Venetian in Las Vegas. Dined there on a Saturday evening with my adult son with whom I was attending a conference. Hospitality is handled well with little delay in being seated. The table service is equally good, with an appropriate but not obtrusive level of attention provided.

The appetizers are very good, including the meatballs and the eggplant parmagiana both of which I have had previously. The main course was center cut filet with truffled french fries for me and spaghetti with wagyu beef meatballs for my son. Everything was well prepared and served at comfortable pace.

The atmosphere in Lavo is quite pleasant and suitable for couples, as on my previous visit, famillies or business. The noise level is comfortable to allow for conversation and the tables are far enough apart as ot not feel as if you are in someone else's party.

Pricing is what you owuld expect ot pay in a large Las Vegas strip resort, but the value is there. After 2 visits Lavo is now part of my rotation for Las Vegas.

was there for a weekend brunch buffett all i can say is “I AM HAPPY” with my experience foods are great but the food that really standout on my taste is the alfredo simple but beyond perfection. The french macaron ahh is uncomparable. $49.99 is absolutely worth it. i will try the endless mimosa one day. X gh💋

Their service leaves a bit to be desired.

Asking wait staff 2-3 times for bread only to have to ask again is not ideal.

Pretty disappointed in this one. It had lots of good reviews but it needs some work. Food.. Meatball, was on point. The Charred Octopus was both grilled and boiled for too long. It was tough and burnt. I had a side of pasta with basil pesto that was good, not great.
The service was slower, dirty plates sat on the table to long but that is me just being to particular.
Great Ambiance!
Consensus from the table was just ok.
Best way to summarize this is commercial Italian that would be good for a quick business lunch.

Amazing service with a very helpful waiter that was able to give you suggestions depending on your preference of foods. Beautiful interior of the restaurant with moderate noise level. The timing of appetizers to the main course was perfect. Enjoyed the yummy bread and olives they offer when you first sit down. Phenomenal food and desserts, definitely will be coming back when in Vegas.

Honestly i was very unimpressed with the food. The service was great the restaurant had a very nice feel but Our lobster wasn’t cooked all the way. The best part of the meal was the ceased salad in at the beginning. I had such high hopes for this place but turns out it was just a big let down it was the worst food we had on our entire trip

The waiter was absolutely fantastic and attentive and gave us excellent advice to split a pasta dish instead of each of us ordering our own because their pastas are quite heavy. We also tried the infamous meatball appetizer which was great but my favourite was the grilled octopus appetizer.

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant!! Beautiful, clean excellent ambiance! Restrooms are stunning as well! Service was fantastic - we were greated by several staff members upon arrival and seated promptly. The food was fantastic - I recommend the seabass! After finding out that 2 of our party were quietly celebrating big birthdays, we were treated to some wonderful desserts, on the house:) We will be back, for sure:)
