Our dinner was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. The crispy bones were recommended by our server. They were amazing. The fried chicken was by far the best I have ever had anywhere. The duck...wonderful. The Dover sole..exceptional! Cherries Jubilee and Bananas Foster were the perfect ending! Service was the best. We highly recommend Sara's! We will be back!

The place was great a little hard to find which I think is the appeal. When we asked employees of the casino where it was they did not know. Food was great and service was great.

I cannot begin to say how wonderful our entire evening at Sara’s was!! It got off to a great start with the young lady who met us at the main check in desk at Mabel’s BBQ. She had a great look and vibe. She took us through the private door into a beautifully decorated intimate dining room. Attention to detail was everywhere. We started with cocktails, appetizers and entrees followed. All were fabulous!! Since it was my and my daughter’s birthday dinner we were treated to Bananas Foster cooked table side by a young man who looked very much like Danny Glover’s son, Donald!! Go, experience, enjoy this gem!! We definitely will return!

Outstanding food and service in reasonably quiet and sophisticated atmosphere. We had the prime rib and the surf & turf....both were wonderful. The caesar and the endive salads were excellent, as was the mushroom side. And bananas foster for dessert was a fantastic conclusion to a great meal.

My 53 birthday dinner with my parents who are very picky about their food. Mom and Dad have been here since 1966 just months before I was born and seen and eaten at almost every “it” spot in Vegas since the 60’s. As he finished his Dover Sole, Dad said, “best meal ever in Vegas!” And not very often would I say go to a gourmet place for fried chicken, but Dang if that’s not the best fried chicken ever!!! Cannot recommend this place highly enough!!! Well played Mr. Symon!!! We will definitely be back and cannot wait to use my “coin”! 😉

So this is coming from someone who was already a Michael Symon fan. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Here is my breakdown of food: baked oysters were outstanding, the hamachi tartare was fishy, the fried chicken with the extra $20 truffles was good but definitely not worth the $65 and the $50 duck wasn’t great either—they only gave you 3 tiny slices of it and the majority of it was tough!! To top it off, we ordered the bananas foster, which I can make a much better one at home and crepes with “Nutella.” The desserts were not great for the $20 per piece price tag!!! The most disappointing thing though was the fact that everyone knew it was our anniversary and they still didn’t send us a dessert or write happy anniversary on the $40 worth of desserts that we ordered. Overall, I was disappointed in his restaurant. And, the restaurant was about 1/4 full so you would expect the service to be top notch, but it wasn’t.

Atmosphere is awesome along with the concept of the restaurant. Our service from the main waiter was just ok. They did bring some sample appetizers out and that was a nice touch. The prime rib was too rare and had a smoked flavor. For the price Wasn’t worth it and we are ok if we don’t go back. These high end steakhouses are all the same. Our favorite is still SW inside Wynn

We enjoyed Sara‘s on Thanksgiving. The staff was very attentive and everything we expected based on past reviews. The cocktails were quality and definitely go for the bananas fosters. Made our own surf and turf platter with prime rib split and the seared scallops. Wow!

Sara‘s is not as much of a speakeasy as we thought though in terms of being unknown location. It’s clearly marked throughout The Palms. Regardless, highly recommend. Sara‘s is the highlight of this trip to Vegas for us.

Room and ambiance was nice. Nice selection of cocktails and wine. Wide range of affordable wines. The service was beginner level, not on par for what is supposed to be a more upscale establishment. Prime rib was just okay. The truffle chicken was decent, but I expected something great after seeing many rave reviews of it.

From the minute we checked in we were treated wonderfully! A lovely fine dining experience in a smaller space made it a wonderful get away from the noise and flash of Vegas for a few hours. We were greeted with a cocktail taster, promptly ordered a specialty cocktail and spent time with the waiter going over the menu. I was pleased to know the seafood tower items could be ordered ala carte, as the entire tower was too much for two if we wanted a meal. We has escargot casino, a half dozen oysters, split a Cesar salad and then had prime rib and surf and turf for our main course. Each item was delicious.

We had a late reservation and the restaurant was only about half full. Due to that, my only complaint was we were seated at a tiny table for two and wish they had put us at one of the empty four tops instead as it would have allowed both of us to have a full view of the lovely restaurant (poor hubby had his back to the place all evening). Other than that, it was a memorable meal in a lovely spot with impeccable service. I will definitely recommend to others.

Sara's was bit of a disappointment. It was the resto that couldn't. First let me say the flavors were all really good but the execution was lacking. The appetizer qas excellent (fried bones) but a tad cold. The crab meat served with the halibut was akso too cold, like just out of fridge cold. Hard to eat hot and cold food together. The prime rib was supposed to cut in front of us but it came out from the kitchen, it was also much larger then we ordered. It was obvious it was a cancelled or miss-cut order. It was probably just an off night but when you charge as much as they at Sara's your expectations are that much higher

The food is not worth the price of admission. The chef seems a little heavy handed on his dishes. The fried chicken was prepared beautifully and good for about 3-4 bites, but then just started tasting overly sweet. The Escargot Casino was quite bland, and tasted more like soggy bread crumbs than anything else. The beef carpaccio was ok - the meat was delicious but it was overpowered by the sauce toppings. The $65 Prime rib was not tender and buttery, it didn’t melt in your mouth as we expected. It was the right color and seemed to be cooked to medium rare, but not great quality of meat I guess? Finally, even our dinner roll was lacking, I can get better ones at the grocery store. The cocktails were ok, nothing to write home about. Overall, pretty disappointed with our meal. In my opinion, spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

Amazing! The mixologist Dennis was the absolute best and made the entire experience. We would go back for him alone - oh ya and the food was soooo delicious. If you haven’t been you should.

Great experience. Food was great. Really liked the size of the place and the ability to speak to our table without having to yell and not hearing a bunch of other people.

Wait staff did a great job and were super friendly and knew their menu. Good recommendations and a great time.

The service was terrific, but the food was just ok. As a Michael Symon restaurant, I expected dishes that would be a lot more exciting and tantalizing. There was nothing distinguishing. The dishes were bland and something that we could get just about anywhere. Also, the portions were huge — who can eat that much — such unnecessary waste.
