Red Square at Mandalay Bay - Permanently Closed

Russian
Located in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Red Square has been serving up classic dishes and innovative cocktails since 1999. When you first walk through the large, ornate doors at the front of the restaurant, it’s as if you’ve traveled back in time: Propaganda posters line the walls, interspersed with exposed brick and golden highlights. Dark, rich reds and browns drape the venue in a sort of quiet mystery, with ornate lamps placed among the booths and a Kremlin-style chandelier hanging above the main dining room.

To the right of the Frozen Ice bar, you’ll find our famous Vodka Vault, stocked with around 350 different types of vodka from all over the globe and maintained at temperatures of between 0 and -5 degrees Fahrenheit. Inside, you can take shots of vodka atop a 3-foot-tall statue of Lenin’s head.

    The atmosphere was great! Red velvet, crystal chandeliers, cozy corner booth for 6! Our waiter, Johnny, made several suggestions that we followed and he was spot on...cheese bread, salmon, stroganoff, and white fish were excellent...and don’t forget to order the cocktail, nostrovia! The best!

    We enjoyed a nice dinner here. The server was very friendly and our food was very good. My husband had the" Gorba" chop and I had the sea scallops which were both very good (although I didn't care for the buckwheat side that came with the scallops ). Loved the atmosphere and the martinis too. A fun enjoyable dinner.

    A few of our dishes arrived cold, while the meatball appetizer and pierogy's were very good, the scallops were below par. A huge event was occurring at the same time so it was extremely noisy with the large table milling about - not that the restaurant could help this, but it didn't make for a very pleasurable dining experience.

    We had a wonderful experience. Our waitress was friendly and made some great suggestions. The cheese bread appetizer was unique and amazing! We enjoyed a flight of vodka in the vodka vault- a VERY unique experience. Haven’t spent much time in rooms that are 5 below before- glad they provided coats and hats (and made for fun pictures to share). I enjoyed the Beef Stroganoff and my husband had the “Gorba Chop”. Both were delicious. Overall it was a great dining experience and we would highly recommend it..

    We were in Vegas for one night on a flight home from vacation and Red Square was 1 of 2 restaurants recommended by a friend who goes to Vegas frequently. We initially picked it because we've actually had Russian food and wanted something other than variations on Southwest/Mexican fare. We ate early and the restaurant was not crowded. We don't drink and didn't order caviar. Service was friendly but a bit slow toward the end of the meal as the waiter covered larger tables. We ordered 3 appetizers (meatballs, pierogi and octopus salad) and 2 (scallops over kasha; brisket stroganoff) entrees. Appetizers were good (octopus was very good, not chewy), but meatballs were a bit cold by the time they were served. Scallops were good but had a bit of a fishy smell to them; stroganoff was excellent (sauce wasn't too thick, nor too runny and brisket was very tender and not overly seasoned). We didn't order dessert because they seemed pretty ordinary (especially for the price). We realize that Vegas restaurants are expensive, so we weren't too put off by the prices, which seemed to be high but not too high. The restaurant is dark (but that is intentional and part of the ambiance), but the eating experience for us was very negatively affected by the overwhelming smell of cigar/cigarette smoke (covered by some coconut essence) that filled the restaurant. We realize that this a by-product of the casino nearby, but it seriously detracted from the eating experience in the restaurant to the point of influencing our rating. We would recommend for the variation from the more usual Vegas fare, but only if you eat early (to avoid crowds and slow service) and can handle the secondhand smoke smell.

    Decided to try this restaurant while waiting for a show to start. The cheese bread was delicious and worth the wait! The grilled octopus is a must try, also very tasty. Our party of six ordered the filet mignon, chicken paprikash, scallops, and Branzino fish, all dishes were great. Check out the vodka vault too :)

    Great atmosphere. Beautiful interior. Strong cocktails. Add Russian music and it would be better. Pelmeni needs more meat and more prices for cost. Chicken paprikash is excellent but the name has. I thing to do with paprikash. Overall great place. Best in the hotel in my opinion.

    A very sad experience. If they didnt have to cook the food it was passable. So stick to caviar tasting and steak tartare. The beef stroganoff was inedible and the meatballs were revolting. The service was very shabby. Extremely disappointing!

    I want to give this place five stars but can't in good concience. Had the bone in rib eye with brussel sprouts. Rib eye $55 was pretty good but not great, brussel sprouts $9 were cold. Caviar sampler $24 was good, but came without explanation of what was what. Dirty russian martini $35 was really good, second one was not so much. Have been there in the past 4/5 years ago and remember a great experience. Like the decor but needs updating. Service was prompt and friendly.

    The waiter, Brent, made feel right at home, answering our questions and describing our selected food. The drinks were on the mark and delicious. My wife ordered the Bone in Ribeye Steak with a side of Julienne mushrooms while I had the Beef Stroganoff with a side of Fingerling potatoes. The meats were tender and prepared exactly as ordered and the seasoning was great. Neither of us had room for dessert and the prices were reasonable for Las Vegas.

    If you want Russian food or ambiance this is not the place for you. Sure they have pelmini and caviar but thats about the end of the Russian experience. They were playing American pop music which really works well with the USSR menus. Overall there isnt enough genuine Russian dishes on the menu and the price for any of them is outrageous. Went here hoping to find an upscale Russian restaurant but ended up with an American resturaunt with a few Russian words thrown onto the menu. The food was delicious dont get me wrong but you dont go to a themed resturaunt for the best food, you go for the theme which is where this location fails horribly.

    Having read some reviews from previous customers I was a bit hesitant. I wasn't looking for authentic russian food so I can't say if what's on the menu is or isn't authentic. All I know is the service for us was very good. The food we ordered upon recommendation of the server was delicious. The ambience is funky old, workers paradise chic. And it is quite dark inside. The only issue we had was that it was so dark we had to read the menu by cell phone flash lite. We will go back to this place.

    First of all, our event was a 47-year reunion of colleagues that really hadn’t seen each for some time. The service staff went out of their way to accommodate all my requests. The special little alcove was the perfect setting and the meals were superb! The whole night was made special because of Red Square’s atmosphere and service. Thanks so much!!!!

    Cocktails and appetizer cheese bread were the only good food items. I had chicken papikash that was chicken over cooked with bones in. Tossed in salad. No dressing or sauce. Maybe Russians have a very different twist on this dish. Salad was so sweet w dressing i couldn’t eat it. Would never go back for food. Martinis were excellent

    The food was good and portions were very filling. We had the veal pelmeni as our appetizer which were gnocchi sized not full sized dumplings like we were expecting, mushroom stroganoff which came with short rib on the bone and plenty of noodles as well as the scallops which came with 3 scallops. The waitress was a little pushy so we got the bacon Brussel sprouts which were good. I wish they had an appetizer sampler so I could have tried more things.

    When we arrived for our reservation we noticed there were only 3 tables with patrons eating at them. Red flag #1. We were seated at a booth next to a table of people who were extremely loud and arguing with their server about something. I will say the server did an excellent job of controlling his temper and stayed professional with these obnoxious and rude customers. Red flag # 2. The table in which we were seated did not have a complete place setting at it, which to me is unacceptable in a supposedly high quality restaurant. Red flag #3. It also took several minutes for us to be acknowledged and have someone bring us menus. Red flag #4. The worst though was when we noticed that the wooden ledge surrounding our booth was very dusty and there was stuffing coming out of the back of the cushions. At this point we decided to take our business elsewhere.
