Michael Symon introduces his newest Las Vegas dining concept with the launch of Sara’s, inside Mabel’s BBQ within the iconic Palms Casino and Resort. Inspired by nostalgic restaurants of Old Las Vegas, Sara’s will be a tribute to the heyday of hospitality. A curated dining experience set in a luxurious secret room, guests can enjoy tableside preparations and elevated Classic American cuisine. Groove to music in a uniquely designed indoor and outdoor space that offers a exclusive intimate atmosphere just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Each element of the space – from the leather wrapped bar with brass accents to the natural stone tables, and intricate mosaic floor – will converge to create the ultimate sophisticated experience in dining. Sara’s will channel a nineteenth century American speakeasy.

Service and Food were absolutely amazing! I made reservations months ago and I was not disappointed. We come to Vegas twice a year and have not been to the Palms since 2008. I came to the Palms because I wanted to go here. We will be back to Sara’s on our next visit to Vegas.

I really loved your intimate restaurant. I loved the quaint idea of a restaurant inside a restaurant. Ambiance wonderful. Beautiful inside. I thought the restaurant was a little crowded. Tables too close to each other. No one could have a conversation without everyone on each side overhearing. Tables very small. The food was very good. No complaints there. Service very good. Just a pet peeve of mine. I have been going to fine Steakhouses for many years. Recently I have noticed the waiter or hostess never places the napkin across the customers knees anymore. That is just a small thing that seems to have been lost, but it always set fine establishments apart from other restaurants. Professional waiters always took care of the small things, that spread to the large things. Will it keep me from going back. NO.

The service was great! The prime rib and fried chicken were awesome, but the appetizers, side dishes and desserts were just average. Our side dishes didn’t come out until we were almost done with our entrees, which was a kitchen issue.

This was such a special experience. So rare to find quality intimate dining in Vegas. Loved the sense of arrival and the quiet tableside preparation of the Dover sole. Enjoyed watching the carving cart and flambé station. Convivial professional staff. What a pleasure and a treat.

We enjoyed our dinner for 6, (2 women and 4 men) but I have to say that the cost was rather ridiculous. We each had dinner, a few apps and a drink or two and the bill was close to $1100. The majority of the group was still hungry after the dinner. I had a delicious piece of fish, but I would say the entire piece was 4-6 ounces. The only thing with a healthy portion was the prime rib. Service was excellent and the food was good, but at a extremely high price for very small portions.

Intrigue begins in being escorted from Mabel’s BBQ to an obscure door and small dim reception area before entering this intimate restaurant. Reserving “date night” my wife and I were seated at a table where we sat beside each other (our preference), so we could watch the team provide excellent service and skilled efforts for various food preparations. The crispy bones were tasty, the escargot OK, my wife’s steak oscar, and my Dover sole (beautifully deboned table side) were fabulous. Crepe Suzette visible preparation another nice touch. Attentive team service was spot on, and effective. We had a very enjoyable evening. We live in Las Vegas and frequently dine out. Sara’s was a delight and we will definitely return. Thanks go out to the team.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. The service was great and our server Andrew did an amazing job helping us select wine and entrees. The Truffle Fried Chicken was the best chicken I have ever put into my mouth! Oh, how I wish this was closer to home in Virginia! An amazing gem hidden inside Mabel's BBQ!

This wasn't just an outstanding restaurant, it was an outstanding experience! From the time we entered the Palms, through the private passageway into the restaurant, through the appetizers, main courses, desserts and unbelievable cocktails and wines, we were mesmerized by the impeccable service and delectable food. I will recommend Sara's to all of my friends and colleagues. I'm planning a leisure trip to Vegas with my wife, just so she can experience this masterpiece!

As a long time Michael Symon fan, my expectations were pretty high. They were surpassed. The staff was personable and at the top of their game. The food was superb. The prime rib was the best I've ever had; the English peas blew me away; the Caesar salad was definitive. I would have loved to have dessert but simply could not eat another bite. I haven't even touched on the cocktails or the spirits and wine collection. Amazing experience and not to be missed!

While definitely pricey, this is an EVENT meal. Tucked into the side of Mabel's BBQ and behind a couple of discreet doors, the dining room is stunning in velvets, and metals -- think mid-century modern meets 2019. Staff was personable, friendly and professional. Drinks were inventive and lovingly dressed in gorgeous barware. Staff did a great job describing menu items in detail. Truffle Fried Chicken, Dover Sole, Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Potato Leek Gratin were all wonderful. The Beef Carpaccio was an amazing start to the meal. Such a treat to have table side service (Dover Sole and Bananas Foster). Bananas Foster was a perfect end to the meal, beautifully prepared, and not cloyingly sweet. Will definitely return when in Vegas again.

My wife loves Michael since watching him on the Chew. He is a down to earth nice guy. Willing to take time and make you feel comfortable when talking with him.
The service from Andrew and Rich was attentive without being obtrusive. They made for a great evening.
We have eaten at Mabel’s as well, a different menu and ambiance. But also a wonderful experience. As I mentioned to Michael, we are working our way out to the patio. LOL
Sara’s is currently our new number one.
