The NoMad Restaurant - Las Vegas
I was on the fence after reading reviews and decided to try NoMad. I wouldn’t ignore all the 3 star reviews because they are pretty spot on. The service was subpar. Waited a while to be seated and also a while for the server to arrive. Ordered a Dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and the olives didn’t have blue cheese. They delivered ceviche and we didn’t have silverware until someone came back 5 minutes later. Attention to details was definitely lacking. We thought the food runner was our server until we tried to order champagne and he said that he would bring a menu and send someone over (our server) to take our order. The decor is amazing. The food is good. The service is subpar, which leads to an overall 3 star. Needless to say we won’t be coming back after that experience.
A new restaurant where they are still working out the kinks. When we received our main course they never switched out the bread plate with a dinner plate so we had to wait to get a new plate which took a few minutes. Not a huge problem but you can tell they reacted like they messed up.
Food was decent. She said it was too salty but I didn’t mind it. Overly salty is a common theme with this restaurant after reading the reviews. Great ambiance but we will not be coming back. Get something to eat at Eataly instead.
NoMad is one of the most elegant rooms in Las Vegas. The library environment and 2 story ceilings add a special panache. The service was impeccable! However, due to the high ceilings, the “drunks” at the bar sounded as though they were sitting in our booth. Most annoying, primarily because it was unexpected was the music loop; retro screaming. The piercing singers were turned up to an almost club like decibel. Maybe if you are a millennial that’s appealing so, each to his/her own. The food was very good, particularly the table side steak tartar ( wonderful) and the house specialty chicken pour deux. The final issue, which totally threw me, was that, while they do a caviar service, they do not have any top shelf sipping vodkas ( jewel of Russia, ultimate, beluga,) they only have standard fare
Although the food, service and room are lovely, we would probably not return I could only hope that the owners would consider these comments in the spirit they are given
So my husband and I are locals and for my birthday, we decided on a staycation at the Nomad hotel. We made reservations for 745pm for the Nomad restaurant on Feb 13th and arrived on time, and were seated shortly after. Our seats were the closest to the entrance. Looking back, I wish we had been seated more centrally inside the restaurant. Our server was Andrea and she was pretty good. She did seem to be paying attention to bigger parties a lot more than us we noticed and she was a teeny bit awkward with us but did warm up a bit later on. We were given complimentary gruyere popovers with butter to start.
We ordered two with appetizers, the fruits de mer (for one since my husband isn't a huge seafood person) and the foie gras bocuse with puff pastry. I hadn't noticed that the fruits de mar (seafood platter) is supposed to be served for two but she was nice enough to ask the chef if he would make it for one. She came back and told us yes, as a birthday treat he would, and I really appreciated that. Our appetizers were delicious and the bocuse was so comforting and delicious, I didn't taste the foie gras though. For our entrees we both chose the cavatappi. I think the biggest gripe is that it took almost 20 minutes from us finishing our apps to getting our entrees. It's not fun when you have food settling in your stomach and you're starting to lose your appetite. But the pasta was DELICIOUS but my husband literally had ONE piece of sausage in his entire dish. I had two small pieces. It was kind of disappointing. For dessert, we decided to have two cups of coffee and to share the infamous milk and honey that the food runner brought out with a candle, a nice touch. It was incredible. I had read in other reviews that other guests received complimentary birthday cotton candy and I saw the table next to me get it but I did not. I was a tiny bit disappointed.
I did want to make one shout out to Isaac. He was so on point and probably the kindest person we interacted.
Food was outstanding and the views were perfect.
I tried to be as kind as possible in this review, yet I still found I could only rate this with 3 stars. The issues I had were several. First, when we arrived. with a reservation at 7 pm, more than half of the tables were empty and yet we were seated along the wall at a table that was no larger than 2'x'2'. The bread plates were large; which was tactile irony calling attention to the scale of the table. We ordered 2 mixed cocktails when the waiter arrived. I didn't set a timer, but I'd wager it was more than 15 minutes before our orders arrived. I ordered a martini which had a skewer for the olives. The skewer was so long that it was virtually impossible to take a drink without poking my eye out. They really need to rethink the size of their drink skewers.
The menu is what is served. There are no specials which is fine, hoping they frequently change the menu. Since the menu is fixed, the selections are likewise limited. My husband had a filet which he said was good, but nothing exceptional and he preferred steaks elsewhere compared to this filet. I had the duck breast which was very good. The chef cooked the duck consistent with what was described on the menu. But like my husband, there was nothing particularly exceptional or noteworthy. The dessert menu was also limited and based on the selections allotted and the quality of the entrees we had, we decided to skip the dessert and went to Eataly for some gelato. I would recommend this restaurant if they made some tweaks with the service, seating, and food. I added a picture of the Oxford English Dictionary (on the shelf behind our table) in hopes NoMad will use it to find "striking a distinct balance between accessibility, theatricality, and luxury."
Amazing food and great ambiance! Would recommend for anyone looking for an intimate dinner
While looking for dinner reservations, we came across
NoMad and thought it’d be a good place to eat at. We were more than impressed from the hostesses, wait staff (Zack), to the food itself. Leather couches, a fully stocked library setting, great bar, and perfect cocktails.
Yes, their signature chicken dish is well worth it, as is the pata negra.
I have eaten at the NYC Nomad more than a dozen times and the L.A. location twice. The attention to detail, service and food quality just did not match up in Vegas to the other locations.
We ordered a nice bottle of wine and our glasses after our first pour our glasses at empty for 15 mins before I had to ask a bus boy to locate someone to pour our wine. I would have done it myself but they did not leave the bottle at the table to chill.
The chicken dish is always a favorite of mine. I was excited to show my friends and told them how they bring the chicken by your table after it is cooked and before they carve. They did not bring it by our table to see. The taste of the chicken and presentation was inferior to the other locations. Was much less flavorful and the dark pieces were just swimming in a skillet of juice rather than neatly prepared and plated at the other locations.
Overall the superb level of service, attention to detail and food quality I have loved so much about the other locations was not met at the Vegas location. Disappointing to say the least.
Amazing service and food!
The food and cocktails are excellent! I’m disappointed with the service of our server( his name is Jerry I think, Asian guy). It took him a long time to get our drink order, by then , I just order our meal. After that, we didn’t see him till the end. He never came back to see how s everything or if we need anything else. I ordered a champagne glass , never came. He blamed it on the bar staff . Even if it’s the bars fault, it’s his responsibility to make sure it came out. I mentioned to him, he said you want one now, by then, I’m not in the mood anymore. I’ve eaten at The Nomad in NYC twice , and I think the service there is more superior and sophisticated.
Great food, loved the Branzino, ambiance is nice relaxed after the all the Vegas noises.
We had a very pleasant evening. The service was very friendly and helpful. Would definiately recommend this one to anyone I know coming to Vegas!
Waitstaff is wonderful and the interior design is one hundred percent worth the visit on it’s own. The food was decent- honestly not our favorite but the drinks were exceptional and overall a good experience!
Was a little surprised the food was avg. really nothing special
Amazing food! And even better drinks!
We went before the Gaga concert and it was amazing. Great staff, excellent food and service. Highly recommend and we will definitely return.
My husband and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary there last night. We were given free glasses of their NoMad champagne to toast with, which we thought was a nice gesture. We eventually ordered another glass of wine for myself and a beer for my husband.
My husband and I had the steak tartare for two to start with. It was prepared table side. The different flavors and texture of the dish was amazing. For our main course, we chose the NoMad chicken for two. My husband and I are steak and seafood fans, very rarely do we order chicken because, most of the time, it’s very underwhelming. We tried out this dish mainly because of the great reviews we read about it. It did not disappoint! The chicken is first brought out whole, which we assume was for presentation, and then brought back to the kitchen for carving and a second presentation. It was stuffed with foie gras right under the crispy layer of skin. The sauce was light but flavorful enough to just compliment the chicken. The flavor was just phenomenal! For the side, we ordered sautéed mushrooms and the creamed kale. Both side dishes were excellent and a must! For dessert we opted for the mango cobbler with the mango sorbet. It was just as incredible and a great way to end our anniversary dinner!!!
The staff was friendly and professional at the same time. They gave up parking validation as well before we left the restaurant.
Overall, the experience was amazing! From the design of the whole restaurant (NYC library), to the staff, and the food.. we couldn’t ask for a better way to spend our anniversary dinner! Thank you!
We went to Nomad on a recommendation, impressed with its accolades as one of the “Best Bars” in the US. I’m not sure of criteria but we have MANY local spots in NorCal far better. Among other issues: while waiting for our Restaurant table reservation, we were directed to the crowded Nomad Bar, without even being told of the Quieter Bar area within the Restaurant; in the Bar, there was no table service and the BarTender gave me a bottle of Ginger Ale, rather than one of their “featured” soft drinks “Gingered Ale”; the dinner menu choices were limited and pretentiously fussy, with unnecessary ingredients that complicated the choices; the food arrived poorly prepared and cold (the duck breast was pathetic) but my crab pasta was good; the ala carte additions were limited and didn’t fit with the entre main courses; and the food was expensive, given portions and preparation. Overall poor in the restaurant . . Perhaps we should have just eaten in the bar itself . .
Phenomenal meal! From beginning to end the service and food were 5 star. Can’t wait to come back on my next trip
La calidad del filete mignon dejó mucho q desear
Me parece q el perejil es su fuerte coincidió en 2 de 4 platos
El lugar está espectacular !!!
Fell in love with Nomad. Fabulous food and service. Beautiful restaurant with a sweet vibe. Will be back!
We came to this restaurant before a Vegas Golden Knights game and our server and the kitchen did a fabulous job getting our food our quickly and recommending food that wouldn't take too long to prepare. The ceviche was delicious, as was the butternut squash soup, oysters and the light and airy hot popover! The library setting is cool and cozy! Enjoy!
Food was excellent some of the entree's were small. Otherwise highly recommended.
An absolutely stunning library-themed space. The service was a little slow at first and there seemed to be some mis-coordination among the front and back waiters. But it improved throughout the evening. The roast chicken is amazing, do not miss it. The lamb was delicious but a very tiny, appetizer-sized portion for $58. The shrimp cocktail and lobster thermidor were underwhelming. We loved the complimentary popovers and the tableside martini!
Everything were food except my steak was over cooked. I’m not complaining because they comps for the steak. If you can’t cook a steak medium rare then I’m questioning the skills
Every dish was heavily acidic, down to the amount of mignonette granita on their oysters. The chef is extremely heavy handed with acid and salt. We had a similar meal (twice as good) for half the price at Carbone.
Great ambience in 4000 book library from David Rockefeller estate. Extensive wine menu at all price points. Great service and presentation. Pace can be a little slow. Suggest that you do not schedule your evening back to back so that slow pace with gracious service in a wonderful setting is a treat rather than an irritation. Food was good, but did not seem as special as NY or LA locations.
Absolutely perfect place!!
Legitimately one of the best meals I’ve ever had.
Opentable messed up my reservation - made reservation for 6:30, got confirmation, but on the day of the reservation the time got changed to 5:30 for some reason. The restaurant considered me as a no-show but luckily they were able to find a table for us when we arrived there at 6:30.
Great place, though I don’t feel it matches up to the level of the NY location, especially since it’s directly modeled after it. Pretty solid for Vegas, though the food feels a bit overpriced.
This was the best meal I have ever had in my life!!! If I could survive without eating ever again, I would because nothing will ever compare ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
La comida estaba bien sin embargo no era nada espectacular y era muy caro
New Years Eve
Was really looking forward to dining at this restaurant with my wife. Food was excellent as expected however the prices definitely do not match the portion size. $64 for a less than 1lb lobster thermidor is a complete ripoff compared to other fine dining restaurants we have tried. My wife had the duck entree and at $43 I would’ve at least expected a duck breast not 1/4 of one. Forget the duck confit that was a part of the dish- 2 pieces the size of your thumb. We have diner at many 5* restaurants in the world and the value is definitely not here. Service was even worse. Only saw our waitress 2X the whole night - taking our order and asking how was our entree was. We had more attn from the busboy. And so we gave him a great tip and not so much to our waitress. If it wasn’t for him I would’ve given this restaurant 1*. If it wasn’t the fact that Nomad had a hotel, this restaurant will probably be gone within a year. Plus lots of empty tables. I wonder why? Save your money and go elsewhere.
We were asked the moment we sat down if we were going to be attending a show that night by our waiter that would create time constructions, we said yes and that we had a show across the street at 8 pm. This gave us a little over an hour and a half to eat which he said would be fine. We put in our food orders immediately just to be safe. After an hour, we still had no food and were promised repeatedly 5 more minutes until our waiter stopped making eye contact with our table. Eventually the GM came out to apologize and said our food would be rushed out... we explained that at this point we had 10 minutes until we needed to leave so we’d just like the check for the salad that we were served. He said we wouldn’t be charged for anything and rushed out a few appetizers just so we’d have food. We never received our entrees and had to leave after sharing 4 shrimp and their carrot tartare. While there indeed was no bill to pay, this was extremely disappointing as we were late to the show and had to eat a hot dog and pizza served at the MGM garden arena.
