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.”

Specials

Was disappointed in the portion sizes. I know its a small plates restaurant but, the Korean short ribs were small and wasn’t anything spectacular. We had the goat cheese balls, which were good, though. I asked for a bread basket and they said they didnt have any bread, only toast-what! Really!?!we wouldn’t recommend this place.

I always recommend SugarCane to anyone staying at the Venetian/Palazzo or LV.
I go there at least once on trips to Vegas. Food is excellent, good wine selection, and the service is always great. The Tapas are unique and delicious. Try them all to find your favorites! Brusselsprouts (like candy) and the Pad Thai and dates are my favs.

Always fresh and always interesting...great menu, something for everyone and anyone. We're in Vegas 2-3 times a year and we always eat here at least once. The prunes wrapped in bacon, lamb chops, scallops and skillet filet are our favorites. Chef/Owner, Manager, and staff are all "top shelf!"

Food: Excellent taste and solid presentation; lamb chops were perfectly prepared.
Service: Attentive and friendly; courses arrive a bit too fast - bombarded with small plates but that is preferable to a long wait between small plates which too often occurs at small plate restaurants.
Ambience: A bit spartan and echo loud for my taste.
Drinks: Needs a better wine selection. Beer selection was OK.

We had an early dinner at SugarCane before a concert at The Venetian in late March, 2019. It is on Restauraunt Row, so could have seemed a bit open and loud, but it really was not. Our server was excellent (a woman with red hair, wish i could remember her name). Very friendly and knew her menu inside and out. She checked back just often enough. We had the Goat Cheese Croquettes (heaven in one bite), the bacon wrapped figs stuffed with sausage (excellent mix of sweet and salty), and the smaller raw bar tower (at $100, it was a bargain, as there was a ton!!). All of our food was excellent, well-times, very fresh. The only thing I had that i did not love was the balsamic strawberry cocktail. But I think that was just me, as others seemed to love it.

The food was very good, service was attentive but nothing that was exceptional. There were a few other little things like wobbly tables made it an inconvenience for entertaining clients that made for a bad customer experience. Whole staff was very friendly when service was requested, and at times were attentive, but wasn't consistent. Overall ok, but this type of experience is the same as my previous visit, may not return again when entertaining clients but would still possibly return w/ friends.

Honestly, it just wasn’t what we were expecting. We shared a few items but it was the Japanese meatball that pretty much ruined the night. It was nothing like a meatball. It was more like an almost raw sausage without the casing pushed on a stick. It was neither warm nor cold, it didn’t smell appetizing, the texture was off...like it had been sitting out all day, and there was no flavor profile other than salty and blah.
I was very excited about the bacon wrapped dates until I bit into one and immediately tasted that awful Japanese Meatball. I was expecting a bacon wrapped date with Portuguese cheese. I was not expecting there to be sausage as well. The name really ought to be changed to “Sausage dates wrapped in bacon.” Regardless, that was my mistake as Somehow I missed the mention of sausage in the description of the bacon wrapped dates. We had looked at a menu online which apparently was outdated since many of the options we were hoping to try were not listed on the menu we were presented with at the restaurant.

Rum bar + global tapas. The food was great overall, we ordered a few small plates. Pig ear pad thai was tasty, duck and waffles was great too. The cocktail menu looked good, didn't feel the need to indulge with dinner when there's free drinks in the casino. The venue is nice, but loud DJ for an early-ish dinner made conversation difficult.

Avoid Sugarcane!!! I made the reservation 2 months ahead of time clearly because of their website stated that they had a $45 per ounce rum that I've been wanting to try. When I arrived at the restaurant it was clearly on the menu I ordered it from the server and they said they had it. A few minutes later the server comes back explains that rum is discontinued which I know it's not and suggest something close to it. After a few minutes of thinking I decide to order the suggestion which who knows what in the world I got. probably a $10 rum for $40. Next we discussed the oysters which I want six West Coast kumoto's oyster that he said they had while listing specials. The food runner brings over Blue Points oysters and explains that those are blue points. The server comes over immediately notices that those are Not the correct oysters , he takes back in to the kitchen takes them back to the someone else and then comes back to me in about 5 minutes and says that's the closest that they have. Granted this is the exact same place they brought to me 5 minutes before and was totally wrong. No real apologies of why they're out of those or really of why they're out of the rum and at this point I know I'm just getting lied to because they made the wrong choice turn brought them back to me and then served him to me! So needless to say I pay $100 for some crappy rum and six oysters that have could have gotten from the East Coast for a dollar a piece. Thanks a lot sugarcane for lying to my face and for false advertising your complete menu! It would have been at least a little bit better if I'm a manager or somebody would have came and talked to me but nothing absolutely nothing from no one except the poor server who look like a deer in headlights because he had no clue that his kitchen and the management staff sucked that bad. Take an UBER to Other Mama restaurant if you enjoy a local, cool raw bar type food that will be totally honest with you.

After eating at the Miami location several times I had high Hope's. That was short lived once we sat down. The service nor the food is anywhere close to on par with the Miami location. Let's start with the food. We ordered the sushi scallops, rock shrimp, sliders, duck and waffles, empanadas, wagu beef and short ribs. The " wagu beef was so tuff it was unbeatable. The short ribs were burnt and came out 15 minutes after we had finished evthing else. The sliders were ok but over cooked. Which was the theme of the night I guess. The scallops were good and the rock shrimp were very good. The duck and waffles just taste better in Miami. A person in our group had maybe the worst margarita I have ever tasted. He sent it back and they replaced it with no issue. The place was very empty but our server was no where to be seen most of the dinner. Considering the quality and service we have always received in Miami I was shocked and very disappointed. We come to vegas way more then Miami but wont be back to this location. We chose not to complain while their because our server took so long we were going to be late if we stayed any longer.

The welcome & service we received both at the dining room & bar were friendly & excellent! Thanks a lot for my free slices of your “melt-in-your-mouth” Chocolate Mousse Cake!!! The 2 small pieces of Lobster Rolls & 2 Empanadas we ordered at the restaurant were too expensive for the size of servings given and their tastes were just ordinary! However, the Mojito, Sliders, Pig Ears Pad Thai, Fresh Oysters, & Bacon-Wrapped Dates at the Bar were delicious & priced reasonably! We’ll definitely come back for Happy Hour!!!
