Wine Bar
Immerse yourself into a modern contemporary yet cozy bar seatings at Mordeo. Our concept consists of Spanish & Latin inspiration with a touch of Japanese flair. Small bites of food complemented by eclectic yet approachable wines, sake and sangrias.

Our journey began when three dreamers: Chef Khai Vu, a restaurateur, Brandon DetVo, designer & corporate finance guy and me, Luis de Santos, master sommelier & sake expert, sat down one summer afternoon in 2017. Why not create a concept from the best memories of our travels while in Barcelona. Our inspiration came from the counter seatings of food bars in the famous La Boqueria. Armed with over 40+ years of combined hospitality and operational experiences, we bring you Mordeo Boutique Wine Bar!

We celebrated our anniversary and best place to do that! We started with the Iberico De Bellota with La Tur aka sexy cheese and it was FANTASTIC! The blend of the 3 milk cheese is a fantastic idea! Oysters phenomenal! Super clean and great tasting! The vieras con Iberico amazing scallops! Then we did the tomahawk! To me better than the Japanese A5 at Gordon Ramsey steak house! Then who would think that ice cream with caviar would taste like salted caramel! Amazing! Good job Mordeo!

This is a great and unique dining experience for Las Vegas. Most of the food dishes are very light and well presented. I thought that the wine and beer prices were very reasonable for a wine bar and had a selection of every budget. The bar seating is very cramped and you are sitting extremely close to the people next to you but it also promotes interaction and meeting new people. If you don't want to talk to your neighbor then it may not be for you but this is our second visit and plan to go back.

The interior design is a little miss matched and kind of dated for my taste. The food was OK. Kind of forgettable. The crab bites had absolutely no flavor. It was odd that they were really into serving Spanish cured meats but wouldn’t serve Spanish cheeses. Really their choices for pairings with meats and cheeses. Some of the dishes are considerably overpriced for what you get. There is one cheese dish we tried that was basically just a glob of mixed soft cheeses that were so sour that the honey on top of it didn’t even balance it out. I could go on. It just wasn’t that great of an experience.. It wasn’t enough to make me go back

Service was top notch. Wine and food prices were equal to the Strip. This is Chinatown on West Spring Mountain, not the Strip. Thought wine selection lacked in the Spanish wine department. Got extremely noisy and made it impossible to converse without shouting. I guess we're too old for that. It's great that this fills a void in the wine world in Las Vegas but I'm afraid the prices will keep us from returning.

A wonderfully out-of-the-way stop for a delicious collection of small bites during happy hour (2nd drink half price). If you want to be part of the kitchen action, ask for seating at the counter behind the shelf of wines. The wine selection appears outstanding. When we were there early on a Tuesday evening the owner was sampling offerings from a couple slick wine reps. He obviously had high standards; I don't think any of the products were up to his standards.

Sangrias are amazing and typically, I don't like sangria! They have a happy hour 5-7 with small plates to try. The small plates were maybe a little too exotic for us but the entrees and desserts are an absolute must! Delish!!! We'll be back :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Great staff. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. We sampled several wines before making our decision. They walked us through the menu and their recommendations were spot on. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. The co-owner spoke with us for 10 minutes, so we got to hear about the history of the restaurant as well as the ownership team. We definitely recommend Mordeo and will go back next time in Las Vegas!

Excellent tapas and Sangria white or red. We tried the sampler dish called Dame Todos which had a bit of everything. My favorites were the goat cheese and fig, polenta spoon, Grilled Nigerian Prawn and this awesome dessert called Affogato. OMG!!!!! If you are a coffee lover then this is for you. The servers were very attentive as well as the owner Brandon who came over and introduced himself. The ambiance has a Upper Manhattan vibe, very upscale. Mostly bar seating and you are limited to conversations on your right and left. Few tables that are always reserved. Extensive wine list. I will definitely become a regular. I highly recommend. Decent parking

Two visits in the past month and I still want MOR(deo). You like food? You like wine?? You'll be all over this unique blend of Spanish/Asian cuisine brought to the masses by District One's Khai Vu and Master Sommelier Louis de Santos. There's nothing else like it in the city right now.

"Grilled Nigerian Prawn U3" with lobster roe butter and lime zest is totally worth the $24 and looks like the spawn of shrimp and lobster after a marathon sex romp. Big, juicy and insanely delicious; you'd be doing a huge disservice to yourself by ignoring the amazing flavor in the prawn head. This was one of several moments where I wondered "Where da rice at?"

My favorite side dish is undoubtedly "Hongos Silvestes". Sometimes simple is best and that mix of wild mushroom, garlic and egg yolk is crazy good. The selection of yakitori is not to be missed either with standouts including the luscious ocean trout skewer and the stunning king trumpet with brown butter and sea salt.

And to top it all off, one of their current specials are the NY Strip, ribeye and tomahawk steaks all originating from a special meat locker from a beloved and recently closed Strip restaurant at pretty much half price of what it was going for. I knew instantly from the very first bite and was in total shock that they had them! Chef Vu is cooking them over binchotan (Japanese charcoal), which offers a nice twist to what I've been used to for years.

My only gripe is the lack of group friendly seating options. The first visit was with a party of 6 at the bar, which made conversation and even ordering a chore as I had to walk to the end of the line to talk to others often and passing dishes became comical as well. There's only one table in the corner that seats 6 with the other two tables able to accommodate 3 people max. Simply put, if I can't reserve that big table for 4 people or more, I'd think twice about going. But the food and service are superb, so I'll deal with it!!
