The Fresh King Crab legs are the best I have ever had! Well worth the price. The sweetness factor was off the charts.
There is a certainly a Wharf vibe. Decor feels 1975ish. Torrey was an outstanding server. really knows the menu and was spot on with her recommendations.

Our server was great and unfortunately that’s where the praise ends... our appetizers were mediocre at best. The lobster has some kind of disgusting sauce and had a Smokey taste to it.. Smokey on lobster?? I got Fish and chips thinking it would be hard to mess up. The batter on the fish was hard to even cut, the fish was ok and the chips were sweet potato fries!! My wife’s “castaway” cocktail was extremely strong and un drinkable. Not at all worthy the money!!!! Sooo disappointed...

A wonderful meal for lunch in Las Vegas! This chain has come to the desert with a bang!
Our luncheon started with a dozen freshly shucked Kumamoto Oysters.
Our second course was a delicious Ahi Tuna Poke with Wonton skins and a light, creamy Clam Chowder,
Our mains included a sautéed Sea Bass and Steamed PEI Mussels, both perfectly cooked and presented.
We enjoyed several wines from their list with our lunch.
Our server, Michael, was professional and charming.
The restaurant manager ( we didn’t get his name ), was hands on, making sure everything in his restaurant was perfect.
We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to another visit!!

I rarely give a poor review, but here it is: Service was very slow. Some dishes were spiced too hot to eat, and a horrible alarm went off which is apparently a frequent occurrence. It goes on far too long. Sauces are strange yogurt sauces. Bread was outstanding!

The seafood selections are excellent & the preparation top notch. We were attending another event so just grabbed drinks (well prepared) & apps while splitting an entree. The server handled everything perfectly. We'll go back for the full experience.

Came here to celebrate a big birthday! Our server was attentive, if a little over-optimistic about how much food we could eat. Nonetheless the birthday was made very special by the service, with the freshest fish and very tasty cocktails to boot. None of the flavors surprised me, but everything was of indisputable quality.

Other than waiting 20 minutes even though we had reservations, everything was great. William was awesome, he answered all our questions. Food was delicious. We would definitely be back here again.

Arrived 20 minutes early to our reservation and still had to wait 10 minutes past our reservation before we were seated.

Bread was good clam chowder required a lot of extra doctoring before it had good flavor. My wife enjoyed the Louis shrimp salad. The shining star of their food was the caramel bread pudding.

The only way I would ever come back would be to get the bread pudding to go.

Horrible experience. Waited almost 2 hours for an appetizer, spent over $1000 on dinner For four people on Valentine’s Day that was absolutely terrible. We love the Water Grill In Costa Mesa and this place in Vegas just fails miserable. Will never go back or recommend this restaurant ever! And to top it off, general manager was extremely un-accommodating and rude. Epic failure Water Grill!

We came for the valentine's day 4 course menu before we saw our show. I had the half dozen oyster sampler and my gf had the king crab sushi roll. Both were fresh and amazing. second course for me was New England clam chowder and my gf had the beet salad. Again both dishes were good. The real surprise came when we both got our orders of Chilean Sea Bass. I as well as my gf have both had many good sea bass dishes prior but this was just stupid good. My only guess is the sea bass was fresh not frozen as it was wonderfully light , flaky, and delicious! Definitely on my short list for a return visit.

Food was actually very tasty but also very overpriced.
This was a prefixed menu for Valentine’s Day so we didn’t get to enjoy the full menu options. They offered a wine pairing option for $40 more per person but the pour was only 3 ounces so we canceled the wine pairing and the waiter took away the 3 ounce pours from our table.
They delivered our champagne in wine glasses which was improper and I don’t know if it was to disguise the 3 ounce pour but we had champagne when we first got there and poured the wine glass into the champagne glass and it was 1/3 full.

I don’t think we will go back there again, which is too bad because the steak was really good,, but not worth the price!

We are regulars at the Costa Mesa location and while visiting vegas, we decided to dine at the Forum location.

As usual, food was great. We ( me and the wifey) had the Oysters, Pulpo, Crab Cake and Manila Clams. We had Chianti and Chardonnay for beverages and if course, bread pudding for desserts. Chloe was our server, and she was very cordial and accommodating .

Definitely be back here when we’re in town.

Food was fabulous. The menu is reasonable and the ambience is casual but nice. Service was excellent. Only complaint we had at the end was the Bread Pudding. It wasn’t our favorite. Either way we would definitely go back. Great for date night and special occasions!

Great atmosphere! The service was fine, not very fast. We got the octopus appetizer and it was a bit overcooked & chewy which was disappointing. We both got the cioppino which was good but not amazing. For the price I expected more...some of the seafood was outrageously priced but I suppose on par for Vegas. Not sure if we would go back.

Not a place for romance but a great dinner atmosphere for friends. AMAZING bread!!!!!! Octopus was really chewy instead on tender not my favorite but the spiny lobster made up for it. We also got a lobster roll which pretty tasty and the seafood tower which was decent. Overall for me One and done. Value was great especially for strip pricing.
