Wasn’t impressed. Service was very strange. Waitress would literally leave in the middle of a conversation. We didn’t get to order everything we wanted because she would just walk away. What we ate was good, not fantastic. But it’s a cool sexy atmosphere so get a drink there but eat elsewhere.

Excellent octopus and burrata starters. Lobster and Chilean sea bass entrees were delicious. With the exception of the hostess at checkin, all staff members were friendly and attentive, right down to the ladies room attendant. We would definitely go again.

We have been to Lavo several times. It never disappoints. It always has outstanding food and a great atmosphere. The large meatball is a must. Lavo should be on everyone’s dinner list when they are in Las Vegas.

We enjoyed our food. Table next to us was a little loud with the waiter and about the food quality. We shared the same waiter and made it a point to tell him that our food was great and that we thought the service was great. We would return to lavo.

Service was terrible. Main waiter was very aloof and didn’t check on us at all. Our food was cold upon delivery. She never came back. It was after most of our dinner plates were cleared that she came back and asked about our meal. Not good timing on anything. Not sure if we will be back. Waitress was not good at all. Good thing she had support wait staff to pull her wait.

Lukewarm and over cooked, not much tomato flavor.

Made a reservation for 9pm and didn’t get seated until 10pm, which is totally unacceptable. No apparent concern or apology expressed by the management.
Food was great as well as our server. But highly disappointed in having to wait an entire hour to be seated for my wife’s birthday dinner.

this was a very special occasion for us - our 30th anniversary. We made the reservation on-line then called and asked if we could have a table to ourselves because of our anniversary. My husband planned a special moment for me. The hostess was rude when we arrived and put us at the worst possible place and stuck between two other groups of people on the long bench, all so close together. We couldn't hear each other but got a lot of info from the people around us with their conversations! Our server was excellent. Bus staff kept trying to take our plates before were done and explained they weren't trying to make us hurry but.... We had a reservation and should have felt welcome to stay and be comfortable. So disappointed. Once in a lifetime trip and this was our big splurge for a special moment. Terrible.

Girls night in Vegas was started out fabulous with Lavo. The service was attentive, and food came out fast. Everyone on the table enjoyed their food. I feel the prices are higher than I normally want to spend but for a special meal its well worth the bill. Plus when comparing it to nearby Italian restaurant the prices are almost identical, and you get a classier atmosphere here.

This was a very disappointing g experience. We made a reservation for 8:30, arrived 5 minutes early, and had to wait 25 minutes while our table was prepared. Why make the reservation then? Then, after being escorted to the middle of the restaurant by the hostess, we were left standing there while she returned to the front check-in to confirm our table number. The food was a 2 at best. The margarita pizza was extremely dry, without flavor and burnt. During dinner we kept needing to move our chairs to let other guests and wait staff maneuver around us as the tables were crammed in next to each other. The party atmosphere we were promised was definitely not delivered. Again, very disappointed. We would not recommend this venue.

It was a Friday during Lent and I had the lobster bisque and Chilean Sea Bass, both of which were wonderful and the sea bass was out of this world delicious! Finally tried the fried oreos and they were definitely worth the wait, served with the malted shake! So good!
