Everything was absolutely fantastic. From the ambiance of the restaurant to the creative marriage of flavors in all of the dishes, our experience here was beyond magnificent. Great choice for a special night out or even a place to stop in for a drink and one of a kind appetizer! We WILL be back next time we are in town!

Food was incredible, but prices were a lot for the amount of food. Nevertheless, we had an enjoyable experience and they were quick to get us through knowing we had a show to be to. My husband had the spare ribs and said they were the best he's had (since he grew up on a cattle farm that's saying something). I had the roasted petaluma chicken, which was decadent as well. Ambiance was delightful. It could be casual to formal. Indoor and outdoor seating was available. My only complaint is that the two $ should have been $$ when reviewing based on the $40 chicken.

Average food. I had the short rib. Not tasty and dry. Others had the skirt steak and said it was fine, but this place just doesn’t quite perform. Nice environment, but it’s Vegas...many better places to spend your money. Go elsewhere.

Group of 4. We ate outside this visit. Very nice weather. Food was great as ever. Wait staff attentive. However the tables outside are not stable due to their construction. We had to move due to the rocking table to another that was almost as bad. They leveled it with split corks. the table top was too small for 4 people....cramped for dish plate space... Staff repeated they battle with the tables..... Hello main office ....listen to your staff.

Small plate options were varied and great for a pre-theater dinner. Wine was oddly over priced relative to food and there is not a kid menu.
Staff was very friendly and outdoor seating is a refreshing change in LV.

We had dinner here our first night in Vegas and really enjoyed it. We had a bunch of small plates and one main dish for our table of 6 and it was just right. Loved the octopus, spare ribs, Choucroute board, and skirt steak which we would highly recommend. Great casual spot for conversation and enjoyable dinner.

Libertine was a great find. Shawn McClain's creations are inventive, tasty and fun. We had a beef tartare and pot of foie gras, both served in a jar. Absolutely fabulous. Wanted to lick the jars. Market oysters were icy cold and already dressed. Our only dislike was the octopus which was smoky (good) but chewy (bad), however the bed it sat on was wonderful. Also tried the Ricotta Gnudi, a little pasta packet of heaven. Now onto the drink menu. Tony, the mixologist from Michigan, is a wonder. The Mac & Bennie & Martie and Bob is a 12 year Macallan with some pecan bitters and applewood smoke. While they serve the same cocktail at the Bellagio, it is more expensive and Tony isn't there to thank for its smoky flavor and perfect presentation. Can't wait to return to try some of the large plates.

Pace of the meal was perfect. Food was cooked to perfection and the hand crafted cocktails will not disappoint... especially if you like bourbon. It was a busy Friday night but nothing felt rushed and the steak was cooled to perfection.

The food was great, as was our server. We had the added benefit of windows to the outside world. Sunlight is hard to find in the convention center, which made this restaurant a real winner.

I had high hopes after reading the other reviews but was disappointed. Appetizers were nice but both our steak orders were awful. Tough meat to the point it was barely possible to cut it with a steak knife. They tried to make up with free deserts which was a nice touch, but at $50 a head, those steaks should never have left the kitchen. Overall, disappointing.

I had business lunches at Libertine twice during my conference. Food is excellent and overall healthy. Service is just ok. Every restaurant in Vegas is overpriced but the price here is consistent with quality. Safe choice for business luncheons.

I sat at the bar for a weekday lunch. The bartenders were friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food was very good, I just would have preferred a few different options on the lunch menu. The fried chicken sandwich was great. Overall a very good experience and I would go there again.

We went here with high hopes after reading reviews. The good: the chopped kale salad (which was not chopped lol) was great--a wonderful surprise; the flat bread was unique and tasty; the service was good. The bad: I ordered a specialty drink that sounded delicious and was recommended by our server--she came back to tell me they didn't have the ingredients; my friend ordered a napa valley cab and was brought a pass robles cab--huge difference; ordered the warm crab dip as an appetizer--they served it after the salad with our dinner; ambience in dining room--there is none. It wasn't awful, but we wouldn't return.

My waiter was Jose. He was excellent and provided outstanding service. It is a superior service establishment, and inherently there is no value. Its not Perkins. This establishment is outstanding in food, presentation and service. If you are willing to spend over $150 for a dinner for two, then do it. As a person that has spent over $300 for a dinner for two, this place is worth every penny. You can hit the bar area and go the cheap, but it’s Vegas. You want cheap go downtown. You want amazing go here and play some games in Mandalay!

Came in to entertain a friend in from NYC. Ambiance is open and inviting. Our server Kawin Towe was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. Anticipated all of our needs. The manager Jordan stopped by and was very sweet as well. The chef is putting out amazing food, try the Octopus!! Bar staff makes well crafted, balanced cocktails, the Negroni was one of the best I’ve had in Vegas. Great experience, even our picky friend from NYC was very impressed. Great job to the entire team at Libertine Social!!

I just finished a great meal, with fair service. You must get the Carrot cupcake dessert, it is the best carrot cake I've had in my life. The Cobia and chicken were both fantastic. Our favorite app was the hamachi cones - spicy with great flavor throughout.
