We sat on the outdoor patio and had a private dinner for two. The food was prepared quickly and was hot, fresh and delicious. The service was spot on too. We both had the short ribs with pickled tomatoes and collard greens and shared a side of mashed potatoes and leeks. We look forward to dining here again.

First time here for dinner. The food was very good. We split the filet mignon which cooked to perfection. Also ordered the shrimp and grits and Belgium fries. Both were very good. My only thing was the noise level. Most restaurants in the casinos are very noisy and this was no exception. If you are looking for quiet conversation, not the place to go.

As a local in Las Vegas, Libertine Social is one of my favorites. We have many options, and generally speaking, all are great. But LS is different, inventive, unique, and never disappoints. The cocktail menu is always fun to try, food is impressive and you must always try at least one “fried egg”.

Don't let Gastro Pub fool you, this place is also for foodies. Scotch olives are not to be missed as was the rabbit pot pie. Excellent server, interesting decor- this place was excellent for dinner before the 7pm show.

This was a birthday dinner for my husband. It was such a fun menu we decided to order a bunch of dishes and split them four ways. Everything we tried was excellent. We have the green goddess salad, a rabbit pot pie, the ribs, the hamburgers and the pizza.

Hamburger prefect and delish
Beet salad yum, halibut was outstanding , yellowtail cones were okay as in too much guacamole in the bottom of the cone would have preferred it throughout the yellowtail.steak !!!! Broccoli side dish amazing

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.
