Sat at the Sushi Bar with wonderful personal attention by sushi chefs! The seafood was very fresh and presented beautifully! No hesitation to recommend this restaurant as an incredible dining experience!

The staff kindly noticed my Wife’s recent birthday and provided a wonderful amenity. The attention to detail—our note to request a seating near a window—could not have been better. And the food is excellent; we tried an odd combination of sushi with pop rocks.

Wir waren als Hotelgäste dort frühstücken und sowohl das Buffett als auch a la carte gab es super Qualität. Der Service war sehr freundlich und alles zu unserer Zufriedenheit. Aber es ist schon teuer. Buffett kostet 33$ pro Person und Pancakes $17. Dafür ist alles sehr sehr hochwertig und es gibt auch viele gesunde Sachen.

No bread for starters, had the caprese salad, so so...I had the rotisserie chicken not a whole lot, if you're really hungry, this is not the place to go, maybe a light dinner, desert was good , red velvet cake, unsweetened tea is the nastiest thing in the world, NOT IN A HURRY TO RETURN

This was one of the more disappointing dining experiences I've had in recent memory. While the staff was very kind, I don't believe they've been set up for success. There need to be additional trainings and support for Frontline staff on both the menu and bar offerings and on service norms. The kitchen and bar need to focus on quality control. We had frozen carpaccio and cocktails that were a bit strange... lots to improve on here and a far cry from the excellent food and service that filled this space when it was the Mandarin Oriental.

The service and staff were accommodating. It was challenging to find the place located on the 3rd floor at the Waldorf Astoria. The carved steak sandwich came with lots of fat and we sent it back. Management was accommodating and comped the sandwich off our bill. The ambiance is nice and quite. The fresh juice was delicious.

I had the Eastern Drop drink - very tasty!
The burrata salad-tomatoes with burrata cheese and basaltic vinegar - loved it!

Scallops were great but you only get 3 with 3 pieces of broccoli. I also had the Honeycomb desert,very sweet with banana and honey flavor. Overall very good! My server was excellent!

Beautiful property and a nice refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of the casino properties. Service was excellent; fast & friendly but wasn't thrilled with the table location. Stuck in a corner, facing the wall at a messy pile of cords and constant slamming of cabinets & drawers from the service station. Wasn't my best dining experience but certainly recommend. Just be mindful of the table location.

Very sterile/strange atmosphere. Hostess was disengaged and not helpful. Our server was excellent however. Overall I wouldn't recommend this restaurant as there are many high end places in Vegas that are worth your time and this isn't one of them.

Just like the hotel it’s in,, this is the place to escape from the Strip without actually leaving. Fine quality food and drink with attentive personal service by Katherine - would happily return!

The scallops, dessert and cocktails we tried were outstanding, as was the service. The steak my husband ordered came out medium, instead of the rare he requested. We hate wasting food so did not want it replaced, in spite of their offer, but our waiter and the manager were very apologetic and handled the situation nicely by comping our dessert and a round of drinks.

Service was fantastic, and restaurant was quiet and had a nice ambiance. Lots of gluten free options listed on the menu, which seems to be rare for Vegas. Went for dinner, food was tasty, had a steak which was perfectly cooked, sides were tasty. Quality of the meat was not quite what you would get for the same price at other restaurants. Overall, food was tasty, but would not return as the meal overall wasn't worth the high price tag.

Portion size was miniscule. Value for the dollar very poor. Service was marginal. Order the rib eye salad as an entrée, it was side salad portion size. Waiter brought out a rib eye steak instead of the salad, had to wait for the rib eye salad I ordered.

Zen kitchen is nice. The ambiance is casual and the food and service are at the best quality and presentation with great service that you would expect at the Waldorf Astoria. It's easy to access the restaurant from the valet entrance so it's a quick in/out especially for work lunches where time is tight.

Their website and Open Table description says they have elegant Thai and Indian food. Instead they have a limited menu of vanilla American food and wnes, exorbitantly overpriced. False advertising , skip the place

Eric was an excellent waiter, very knowledgeable and attentive. But I was incredibly disappointed by the food. We had the fritto misto and it was bland and over cooked. I had the sea bass, also very bland and overlooked. My date had the short rib that was dry and came with some disgusting sauce they called a gravy. We also got an order of whipped potatoes and asparagus- the potatoes had zero flavor and the asparagus tasted they weren’t even washed. The highlight of the entire meal was the orea cheesecake desert. It was frustrating, as select once nice place every year to enjoy in Vegas and this was the worst we have ever had.
