Tapas / Small Plates
At SUGARCANE raw bar grill, globally inspired small plates come from three kitchens – an open fire grill, raw bar and traditional kitchen – overseen by award-winning Chef Partner Timon Balloo. Inviting guests to “kick back, eat well and stay awhile,” we are on a quest to celebrate the simple pleasures in life – eating well and celebrating with friends – with a focus on the “shared experience.”

In 2016, SUGARCANE raw bar grill opened on Restaurant Row at the Venetian® Las Vegas, an AAA Five Diamond luxury resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The restaurant was quickly recognized by top culinary outlets: Eater called it “the most anticipated arrival of the year” and named it one of the “15 hottest restaurants in Las Vegas,” Thrillist and The Daily Meal dubbed it “Best New Restaurant,” and Lara Spencer of Good Morning America called it “Las Vegas’s newest hotspot.”

This was our third experience here, all were equally poor. This occasion we had a 1:00pm reservation for lunch, we checked in at hostess, waited 10 minutes, the inquired about status only to find out the had mistakenly given our table away. A few minutes later they got us a table. Service was incredibly slow(it was after 2:00pm before we recvd our food), the food is actually pretty good but very small portions. Basically every experience has been the same....polite but very slow service, unorganized & unprepared staff, descent food but not good enough to offset all the shortcomings. Never going back.

The food was amazing! We had the goat cheese croquettes, smoked salmon pizza, and beignets and all were so well executed. The service was great and timeline - highly recommended as an option for a relaxed outing in Vegas!

There were so many yummy things to try, I had a hard time choosing. The Tuna Tartar was to die. The ambiance was modern and inviting and I would go back again in a minute!

We enjoyed a great experience. We had a reservation but arrived early and asked if we could sit at the bar, where Shay took excellent care of us. We started with the happy hour oysters, which were fresh, ice cold and deliciously briny. We followed with the caviar, American waygu and a decadent desert. A lovely and memorable evening.

We went late after the Knights game. The wine list was ok, but nothing with any age and limited selection. The bacon wrapped dates were excellent, the beef empanadas were good, but I have had better. Service was excellent.

Bring your wallet, the menu is pricy and it’s tapa style plates. That said, everything was delicious! They forgot our empanadas but made up for the inconvenience. Good service, I would have liked to have another cocktail and had to ask. The water person was on his game! Overall experience wry good. The DJ music had us dancing in our seats.

When we arrived, we were promptly greeted by the hostess and taken to our seats. Our waiter soon greeted us and brought water and a drink menu. Though happy hour was only at the bar, our kind waiter asked his manager if we could have it at the table. The manager kindly agreed and stopped by our table to greet us.

My son ordered a small steak with wild mushrooms while my husband and I ordered 2 dozen raw oysters, the Pork Ear Pad Thai Papaya Salad, and the Chicken with Wild Mushrooms and Potatoes. They bring things out as they're ready so we didn't get everything at once, but that was fine. We took turns eating what was available and had a great time.

My son enjoyed his steak - it was cooked medium rare, which was what he requested. It was very tender, juicy, and flavorful. He even ate the mushrooms, which is unusual because he hates them.

All three of us ate the raw oysters easily and wanted more, but decided to wait until all our dishes were eaten before ordering more. The oysters were fresh and came with a side of horse radish, lemons, and Tabasco sauce.

The Pork Ear dish was heavenly. I am afraid of eating unusual body parts, but our waiter assured me I wouldn't even notice they were pork ears, and he was right. The fried ears were crispy, crunchy, and warm (freshly made). They were tossed in strings of papaya and carrot, and then dressed with a light and sweet dressing, and sprinkled with cilantro, slices of jalapeno, and other herbs. The dish was so tasty, we ate it with the quickness.

Our chicken, wild mushrooms, and potatoes dish came out last. It was a whole chicken! It was nice and tender, and the presentation was beautiful. My husband and I couldn't finish it, so we got the rest packed up to go. I did wish the chicken was a little saltier - it tasted a little bland because of that, but everything was cooked perfectly well. The mushrooms and potatoes were tender.

We had a wonderful time here and will for sure come back again when we are in Vegas!

This was one of the highest rated restaurants on Zagat and Open Table. We were not disappointed. Extremely friendly and gracious staff. The three of us had numerous sharing plates - all were delicious and just the right portions. It's off from the gaming area of the Venetian casino. Would definitely go back.

We were going to see Jackson Browne, and wanted to eat at the Venetian. Checked out the menu and it looked good. It's a tapas type bar, so they had a lot of selection. The waiter was nice and knowledgeable, and everything was great. We had the stuffed dates with bacon, which were delicious, as was the smoked salmon pizza, and the short ribs...also amazing. It was pricy, no question, but we'd eat there again.

Went during happy hour and ordered one of everything! Pig ear pad Thai was one of the best things I've ever eaten. The bone marrow and spicy pork shoulder off the main menu was also pretty phenomenal.

Not what I was expecting. Felt taken advantage of given all the positive reviews. Small place, fairly loud, pricey for not much food and food nothing particularly special, lackluster service. Waiter spoke very fast. Food that had fallen on the floor outside the table was just left there. Cocktails were good but again on the small side.

Fabulous happy hour food with delicious oysters, lobster rolls, and pig ear pad thai (my favorite). Actually, everything on the happy hour menu is tasty--we tried it all. We went with children, and they were happy to accommodate us at a table because of the minors. The food comes out very fast and service is friendly and efficient. We all enjoyed it (even our foodie kids) so much so that we went back a second time during our stay. I can see that this would be a fun place to go to a a couple without kids or in a group.

It’s pretty loud and right off the casino floor. Food is good but not great and we had dishes that were pretty inconsistent. Bonus points for having a great happy hour menu and drink though!
