Lavo Ratings and Reviews
Made a reservation because I thought Sunday brunch might be busy; nope. It was dead, and I realized quickly that it might because the service is slow and the food is just okay. Even though we had a reservation at 11 and the place was practically empty, we were told to sit and wait. Ten minutes later the hostess (whose dress was ill fitting, too short, and had a large hole in it), indifferently seated is. Wait service was incredibly slow and inattentive. The server actually seemed irritated to serve us, and had it not been for the manager coming by to ask about our meal, we would’ve been completely ignored. Water glasses were dirty and were hardly refilled. I just didn’t get a good vibe there and would never go back. The food was just okay. Not bad, not great. The best part of the whole thing was the complimentary piece of coffee cake they bring before the meal; that was good.
I have dinned at Lavo many times and have always been very happy with both the service and the food. Unfortunately this time we were seated in the corner booth close to the kitchen. Our servers were so lazy to walk around that they kept serving us over the booth wall and over the heads of our party. Food was great but service was just bad. This is a nice restaurant with higher prices so my expectations of service were much higher. Reminded me of Dennie’s server. Disappointed.
Lavo’s meatballs did not disappoint ! The restaurant is beautifully designed, great atmosphere and you can people watch! Service was excellent and the food was tasty. It is on the noisy side so may not be the best choice for a quiet, romantic dinner, more recommended for birthdays, group get together, etc. overall highly recommend.
We ordered a pizza and pasta to share. The pasta was almost cold. We told the waiter who brought us back another plate, with apologies. The second one was perfect. The portions were very generous. The restaurant is beautiful. Our table for 2 had one chair and one sofa, which was not very comfortable because too low. The ambience was great with great DJ music.
I booked ahead so we would have a table for Valentine's Day/night. The restaurant was very accommodating as I changed our time (about three times), as we were able to dine earlier than expected. A lovely atmosphere, but tight seating which actually lead to conversations with a tablemates from Louisiana who were next to us. After being seated we were promptly taken care of, ordering the special Valentine cocktail -- a refreshing blend of Vodka, Champagne, Elderberry & Strawberries served in a Tom Collins glass. Garlic bread, and a triad of olives, cheese, and spread were being enjoyed, but we felt rushed when our soup and entree abruptly followed. The waiter apologized, had the dishes removed, and later they returned to the table, served up hot. In the meantime, as an apology, the chef complimented us with a large order of callamari -- lightly breaded presented with a zesty marinara. Delicately delicious, but filling. The lobster bisque (three nice pieces of lobster) made with sherry was velvety, delicious, and so rich that we did not eat it all! The Chicken Dolcezza(?) was one half a bird (juicy, and light) served in a browned, flavor-packed Madiera sauce and accompanied by fingerling potatoes. My sister and I split the dishes, and found we couldn't complete the bird entree, either. Absolutely no room for dessert, which I'm sure would have been a sweet way to end our last meal in Vegas. As tables filled closer to a peak dining hour, the noise level increased, of course. Our small table was on a long bank of tables near the back wall. It must have had a wait service station behind us, as we could hear clattering of silverware, etc. Overall, it was a good experience, a good meal with cocktails, and Lavo's congenial staff made sure we felt welcomed, and taken care of. They also serve lunch, and weather permitting there is some outdoor seating options, too.
This is a vibrant, beautiful restaurant with excellent service however the food was very aversge. I had a beet salad which was a large portion but very forgettable. My entree was the seafood alfredo. I found it very bland only eating a quarter of the dish. My friends had chicken parmigiana which was cold and a penne ala vodka that was good but not up there against other pennes. If you plan on splurging on a great Italian meal, try Fiammas at the mgm
Well we were seated at 7:50-55 for a 7:30 resv. Very loud atmosphere, but fun place. Loved the raw & baked clams. The complimentary garlic bread with marinara sauce was a nice touch. However our food arrived before we finished our appetizers, felt very rushed. The spaghetti was very over salted and not hot. The veal chop parmigiana was not hot, I sent it back and it arrived back at table not hot again. Our wine arrived when we were finished with our meal.
I think there is very high potential, but low achievement in this restaurant.
By far one of the best restaurants for dinner we have been to. We were extremely happy with the ambience of the place. We made reservations, got there about 45 minutes early. Had a great cocktail and waited in the cozy sitting area. Our server Adam was amazing. I was torn between a pasta dish, chicken parm and salmon. Adam suggested the salmon and it didn’t disappoint. Everything was amazing and was surprised at the price of the bill. Surprised in a good way. This will be a staple in our Vegas trips
We got seated fairly quickly however it took a while for our server to actually get out drinks, probably a good 10 minutes. We had to get someone else's attention to come get our order. He was not very attentive and courteous. For such a high end place I expected better service.
Table was too close to others and was very small and a bit uncomfortable. Was there for my birthday but left a lot to be desired.
The wait staff was great, treated us so well and was extremely sweet helping celebrate a birthday on a busy evening. There was a situation with an drunk and disruptive customer that was dealt with very professionally, several people came over to the surrounding tables to apologize and ensure that it didn't ruin our experience. Great wait staff!
I think this is the best gluten free pasta I have ever had! I opted to do a gf substitution for the penne ala vodka. I also really enjoyed their eggplant appetizer. It is soooo delicious and huge, a must try! For the dessert I decided to have my favorite tiramisu, but in all honesty it wasn’t anything special. It was overall a good experience and the food was very good!
I had good expectations for this restaurant considering it was in the palazzo and we were staying in the Venetian. We were seated in a timely manner, which was good. The staff was friendly and courteous. We ordered drinks, wine and beer, and then the tuna tartarre. The tuna was an excellent appetizer. Our waiter then informed us our bread was not brought out and went to get it. We ordered our main dishes, vodla penne and parmesan crusted veal with wild sauteed mushrooms. The vodka penne was okay, but the veal was tough and over cooked. I've never had tough veal. The mushrooms were tasteless. Maybe it was just a bad night, but I was a little disappointed.
As far as service, for a restaurant of this caliber at these prices, the staff should add some basic touches like placing the napkin on your lap, offering cracked pepper, fresh parmesan, having recommendations/ food and drink pairings, etc. We had to wait until fresh parmesan could be located, which took too long, so we just started eating. I've been to a few fine restaurants in Vegas, and this one is found lacking. The breakfast room service at the Venetian was better.
#1 Vegas Restaurant. LAVO is my husbands favorite Las Vegas restaurant. He 💕the NY strip. I went the previous Wednesday with work colleagues and ordered the Sea Bass. It was melt in your mouth goodness but then my coworker shared a piece of the filet and LAVO has perfected the tenderness inside with a perfect crisp on the outside so when I joined the hubs for our date night I got the filet and it was amazing. We also started with the oysters which were incredible. (We had just had oysters at Joes the night before and were pretty disappointed) we we so thrilled with the freshness of the LAVO oysters we had to go back Saturday night and get some more. For sides we had the garlic mashed and the mushrooms. Both great compliments. Service was top notch. Barbara was outstanding. GM Jason made us feel like celebrities. The meatball appetizer is awesome if you have a large group and the fried Oreos taste cannot be missed- they are somewhere between a Krispy Kreme and a hot creamy Oreo. So goo!
