The food was delicious and would eat there again, however dining out is a whole experience and the wait staff made the experience less. Lack of attentiveness and engagement to make it a nice experience. Thankfully the food was delicious, truffle pizza is a must.

Dorian rules and so do the ribs. The noise level was perfect as I was still able to talk and be heard but there were no weird silences in the restaurant. The staff knew their wine/beer. Appetizers and entrees came out at prefect times and our server was very sweet.

The burger is fantastic! Also, I highly recommend the cauliflower. Unfortunately our waiter was not attentive and it was very difficult to get anything else after he placed our initial order.
I like this place so much that I won’t let one bad experience keep me from coming back.

We enjoyed our meal at the Libertine Social. The atmosphere was relaxed and we enjoyed a view of Las Vegas' first snow flakes in a while. The other patrons were snapping photos and commenting about the site.
Our server was attentive but not overbearing and rushing us. We shared a side of mashed potatoes per his suggestion as it was a large portion. Overall wonderful meal and atmosphere.

Fantastic flavors in menu in a lively, hip environment. Started with two signature drinks which were delicious and creative. Dined on sausage & fennel wood-fired pizza and shrimp & grits. Finished with creme de pot for dessert. Flavors of all were fabulous with perfectly sized portions for two. Love that we took a chance on this tucked away gem and will definitely make this a return spot when we come back to Vegas!

Elevated pub comfort food at its best. Fun casual affair, I had no idea that the 'back' room was there, and how fun. Sitting along the wall on the couch was like eating at home. The decor is wild fun and lends to the light atmosphere and encourages cross table conversations. The food is great, high end comfort food led by the 14oz Porterhouse and the Wagyu Flat Iron steaks, but tonight we had the Short Rib, tasty but a tad dry, the Branzino, tasty but too many bones for me, and the Fennel and Sausage pizza, yummy! They have an inhouse Sommelier to help with wine selection, we just chose a rose to blend with everything. But she kept the glasses at the right level. Good attention to serving details. A fun spot for grown-ups who miss those old Hard Rock Cafe days.

Too loud to enjoy a dining experience.
More like a loud bar with good food.
So....the food is quite enjoyable, but the atmosphere is terrible for the price point. Happy hour is a better option, than going there for an expensive memorable dining experience.

Wonderful waiter, Quinn? But the food was very disappointing. The tuna cones were quite good but downhill from there. The sort ribs were overdone and dry. We shared a tortellini special and the duck confit was so over cooked and dry it was difficult to chew. Son had a pretzel that he said was really bad, how do you screw up a pretzel?

So many great restaurants in Vegas, we sure wasted a meal here.

We were excited to check out Libertine before seeing MJ One. We made reservations for 5 PM and they were not busy. Unfortunately, our server just didn't seemed interested in our table. Drinks were allowed to set empty and we had to flag her down to order. We didn't let it ruin our night, but it was very disappointing.

This was our second visit to Libertine Social (LS), and we enjoyed it even more than last year! From start to finish, the experience was everything you would hope for in a genuine chef-inspired, fine dining establishment.

Our server, Christopher, took exceptional care of us and represented LS impeccably.

As we did last year, my wife and I stopped by to share small plates before going to see Michael Jackson "One". We shared the hummus with balloon bread, smoked ricotta gnudi with braised rabbit, and the yellowtail sashimi cones.

The hummus was rich and creamy and included bits of roasted broccoli and cauliflower; the bread "balloons" out and is hollow - with a crispy, seasoned crust once it deflates - perfect for dipping!

The ricotta gnudi were...like nothing we've had before...light and creamy...a perfect bite with a bit of the perfectly braised rabbit. This was a dish to remember (and attempt to emulate.)

The yellowtail was fresh and well seasoned along with a nice cooling avocado puree, all of which fills a small cone.

Christopher honored us with a dessert: the honey bread pudding. This is NOT your ordinary bread pudding!! It was a brilliant dish: the bits of bread will fool you. They appear to be large croutons - but they are perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside - and carry a perfect hint of vanilla and honey - all of which is paired with a vanilla ice cream, fresh honey (and honeycomb!) and whipped cream. This was paired with a beautiful and delicious Spanish Jerez.

All in all: a truly memorable experience!

Overall fun atmosphere and good food. By far, the drinks will be what we come back for - barrel-aged, on tap and unique cocktails that taste delicious. The service was average - our water glasses were not refilled in s timely manner. The food was good though a little over priced in our opinion. The potato leek purée side dish was fantastic and the beet salad was very good too. The scallops were so-so - seemed to have been cooked in bacon fat, which really took away from the delicate scallop flavor.

They have a gastropub type limited menu offering. They're very good at what they do. I had the fennil and sausage pizza which was excellent and worth the price. They also offer very good craft beers on draft.
