We wanted to sit and eat without waiting in line, we were late to our reservation but the staff still sat us right away.

We were here for our Anniversary and it was exceptional! The food was incredible. I had the butter chicken and my wife had the Rib eye. The service is excellent and they brought us an amazing desert floor our anniversary!

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.

I enjoyed the dinner I had for my birthday celebration last weekend! The food tasted really good and hot (made fresh). I even got a free desert for my birthday! Highly recommended!

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!

It was our last night in Vegas. We chose Zen Kitchen because it looked beautiful online. It did not disappoint. It was a quiet atmosphere. Our server was delightful and most helpful. At the end of our meal they brought us an anniversary dessert since we were celebrating 10 years. They also brought us expresso. Great experience!

Selected Zen for Mother's Day and it was a great choice! Small, intimate dining area with a really diverse ala carte menu. Everything from juices to egg dishes to chicken and waffles plus a continental breakfast! Service was very attentive, the pace was leisurely and the food was wonderful. Glad we found the Zen and I would definitely go back.

The restaurant is located inside the Waldorf Astoria. We were passing through town and staying for one night and decided to try this place. First the hotel told us there were no reservations. Then we found an open time on Open Table.

The restaurant was never even half full for the 1.5 hours that we were there so I’m unsure why we couldn’t get a table through the hotel in the first place.

The ambiance was okay. Felt more like a high end cafeteria than a high restaurant.

The food was good! This was a high mark for the restaurant. Delicious meals and our sever was also attentive.

There were several noisy patrons seated next to us. I had to say something to get to them to quiet down. That should have been handled by the staff.

Good but not great. I would recommend only out of convenience or if you had no other choice.

Not what I expected. Food was very mid-level. The food didn't taste good for either me or my wife. Service took longer than expected but they were kind. Could for sure improve on music. The music is supposed to be zen but if more than 1 person is in the restaurant than all you can hear is the person because it's on very low volume

Ate breakfast with my husband. It was wonderful! The service was great and attentive without being intrusive. I had the Keto omelet with roasted tomatoes and bacon. Yummy! My husband had the regular eggs, also good. Everyone at Waldorf is so friendly and helpful.

No Sushi, Order rib eye med-rare and we got it med so sent it back again and then this time got it well done. Bar only basic well drinks, no good rums, scotch vodkas. This place was more of a 1 star place not what I would expect from a Waldorf Astoria. It takes 2 minutes to update web site but I guess customer service is not what they are after. As a local I will never return, I hope visitors read this before they go so they know what to expect.

I visited Zen Kitchen on a Saturday night with two friends. I made the reservation mostly based on the desire to get out of the hyper-produced mega-casino restaurant scene and on the brand reputation of the Waldorf Astoria. Overall, the experience was disappointing. I should have probably read between the lines that this is the "one restaurant for everything" common to a lot of hotels doing breakfast lunch and dinner, but one would expect some better ambiance from a high-end hotel. There's no restaurant branding or character to the dining area, and even on a Saturday night at 8:30 there were only about 4 other tables seated. Unlike some other reviewers, we were seated promptly.

The service as solid, however there were a few minor items (leaving clearly finished plates on the table even if individual diners indicated they were done, until everyone was through with their meals) which stuck out at me. Again, my expectations here are based on the price point and brand.

In addition, the server indicated that there was no full bar service available, so the only drinks on offer were those in the cocktail or wine menu. Again, this is the Waldorf Astoria!

The food was all "passable" though for almost $200 for a table of 3, I would expect better presentation and variety.

In my opinion this is a major missed opportunity for this property. It's very easy walking distance from the other CityCenter hotels (Aria, Vdara, Park MGM, the Cosmo) but I could get the exact same experience at any Hilton anywhere in the world. Capitalize on the opportunity to do something different in Vegas.

Although the food was fresh, food was not as tasty and the value is not there. The sitting area is nothing special, felt like a simple atmosphere. The server was attentive. Even with the reservation we had to wait 10 mins after on time arrival and there was no lounging area for the wait which we ended up awkwardly standing in the hallway of a conference area.
