The waitress we had was so amazing and remembered my friends birthday and her age. They gave us champagne and a free dessert. The service was so great. Will be back in the future!

Very very nice setting. Even tho I went with my family for a thanksgiving dinner, The dimmed lighting gives off an intimate vibe so going here on a date would be ideal or maybe just a quiet low key place to enjoy the meal and to enjoy the cityscapes by the window. Our waitress was superb ! she was very attentive, friendly and accommodating. I also want to point out in an era where customer service is almost ceased of existence, essentially your first impression after entering any establishment is the receptionist, hostess etc. Well the hostess was extremely nice, she greeted us upon arrival and apologized for a very minor wait as she was assisting a gentleman just ahead of us. I feel like that was a very important moment because that can make or break the overall vibe of the outing but in this instance, I praise her kindness. Last but not least, Cause I know y'all wanna know about the food am I riiiiiight ? (Duh!) So to begin you get a complimentary basket of rolls when awaiting your meal. Also we ordered as an appetizer the Duck fat fries and the entrees was the lamb pappardelle for 2 and 1 had the Skuna Bay Salmon. I ordered the New York cut steak that came complimented with scalloped mushrooms. I'm usually picky when it comes to seasoning BUT the scalloped mushrooms were seasoned to perfection, very tasty. The steak was also very flavorful as I like mine rare, it was tender enough to cut with a butterknife (I kid you not my friend!). The steak was very juicy and the portions were very good as well, you will be satisfied in the end and perhaps have just enough room for dessert. In conclusion, would I go here again? Absolutely, you dang right I will. This maybe my new go-to spot if I want a quiet and quaint outing. Do I recommend you to go ??? ABSOLUTELY ! don't think twice about it. Special Shoutout to the staff at the Waldorf, from the valet, to the concierge, to the hostess, waitress and chefs. Well done, you are appreciated.

Superior service and food quality. Our steaks were perfect. The restaurant is Great for a couple just getting in town and not wanting to get right out on strip or if you are hungry and want great food right in the hotel. If this is their run of the mill cafe type restaurant I can’t wait to sample their more exclusive restaurants.

My husband and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary. Katherine was an extremely professional and helpful server, with good recommendations. We shared the French onion soup, which was delicious. My beef tenderloin was outstanding, and the scalloped potatoes with mushrooms were a lovely accompaniment. The heritage roasted carrots were a nice earthy side, and the chocolate dessert Katherine suggested was a perfect ending.

Our meal is was very good. If your looking for some place off the strip and away from noisy crowds this is it. Our waitress did an excellent job making sure all our needs were met.

The Thai Curry and Spaghetti and Meatballs were both were good. My one and only complaint is it is very expensive. The jalapeños pineapple margarita was 22 dollars which is absurd even by Vegas prices. Other than that I would recommend this restaurant to others looking for a quite but close date night restaurant.

We had a lovely experience at Zen Kitchen, so much so that we wished the restaurant was open the following day so that we could go return for another dinner.
First, the food... I ordered the Ahi Poke appetizer, which was different from any Poke appetizer I'd ever had and it was amazing. Sometimes with Poke bowls, the sauce is only on the top and you lose some of the magic as you eat from the top down. This was not the case at Zen Kitchen. Every bite was.so.good. My husband had the caprese salad to start and it was delicious, too. The oil and balsamic were plentiful, so much that there was enough for the final bites of tomato and mozzarella. For our main course, we had the wonton soup and butter chicken - both are some of favorite dishes from our international travels and they did not disappoint. We ordered the Rose from Whispering Angel and it was a fantastic accompaniment our food.
Second, the service... our server, Katherine, timed everything perfectly. We did not feel rushed, nor did we feel like breaks between courses or check ins were too long. She was friendly and welcoming, but not overbearing. Absolutely perfect.
Third, the space... the restaurant is beautiful and comfortable. We were there on a particularly quiet evening (one of their first Sundays open since Covid) and it felt like we had the space to ourselves. We enjoyed the window and the view.
All in all, this was one of our best dining experiences in a long time. Next time that we come to Vegas, we'll definitely hope to return to Zen Kitchen.

The experience was strange. We had a very early reservation - 5:30. As of 5:25 there was not one employee setting up. I was told later this is normal. The menu is more limited than I remembered from prior experience, but I might just be remembering it wrong. It took everything a while to get moving. Eventually the meals were served the food was decent but forgettable - I remember it being much better before. Again could be the experience impacting my perception. It seemed that the business wasn’t fully committed to being a fully functional restaurant. No need to follow up - nothing bad happened. I just thought you’d want to know.

This was a great restaurant. The food was good, the service was outstanding and it was a nice place to get away from the loudness and craziness of Vegas. I was there for an anniversary and they gave us a free glass of champagne and desserts that were outstanding. I was very thankful for this kind act and because of it I would definitely be coming back. Our server was also very kind and she made great conversation and got lots of laughs out of us. She made the experience a lot better! Overall very good

Great service with quality food. From the main menu options to dessert, the quality is superb. The different servers we had were amazing and kept my glass full. Usually, you can tell how well trained and caring your server is by how quickly you receive your drink within 2 minutes of sitting down and how well they "keep it full."

The name, Zen Kitchen, isn't simply just a name for the sake of motif and their music selection. It is a description of the experience you will have.

I have had breakfast at other similar style hotels, but I was greatly impressed with my service. I had better service here than at some of the super-premium restaurants at some the major casinos in LAS.

However, a forewarning for first time customers; book reservation for breakfast, lunch, and dinner or you will be at the mercy of fate.

Kudos again to the management, servers, and cooks. They all care very much about your experience and it shows.

What a great break from all the noise of the rest of the strip. The food was so good and we felt like we got a respite there and will be coming back every time we’re in Vegas and need a quiet lovely break from the chaos!
