The coordinator was rude although it was a slow night said they had given our table away when they were clearly not busy & had plenty of tables open. The drinks were good but the 18 one item “taste of the menu” was just awful almost inedible! The price was ridiculous, 100% not worth while. Would never recommend. To top things, when asked by the waiter what our thoughts were he insulted us by making a false statement that spanish food is high in sodium. Given that we are from Spain and have had over a hundred meals/cuisines from & in Spain; speechless!

We loved everything about our visit. The service was impeccable, the desserts were so so delicious. Literally everything exceeded our expectations.

One thing that I would've requested differently is a table a little more away from the gift shop.

Thank you for offering an interesting and tasty vegan tasting menu. Unfortunately they only had 1 vegan dessert (4 small pieces of chocolate). Hopefully they will offer more vegan deserts in the near future.

Services was great at the beginning. Later on we couldn’t even find our waiter. Nice environment and very comfortable chairs. Very disappointed with the tomahawk. We ordered medium rare but it turns out to be medium well also it was cold so pretty sure it was sitting in the kitchen for awhile.

Went for ThanksGiving....overall it was good & Fun.
Didn't appreciate the pre-fix didn't include kids dessert. Obviously trying to increase the tab...insisting entire group leave our table to go to their dessert section with their displays of lots of other desserts to buy.

If we go again...we'll make sure to ask them to use less salt!

Went for the prix-fixe Thanksgiving meal, and it was delicious! All compliments to the chef. The service was excellent and very helpful. The only thing we didn't like was the overly energetic Euro-pop/techno music that was playing insistently throughout the meal, and which was piped in to every part of the restaurant/bar areas. There was no escape from it. Some people must like the kind of music they were playing but it just wasn't our cup of tea, and it takes the ambience down a notch to have to hear it.

I love Bazaar Meats in Vegas and thought this would be similar. We opted for the tasting menu because there were 4 people who had never been to either spot. The tasting menu was brought out on several occasions as 1 dish, where we had to split it up ourselves. That was annoying, but the fact that they rarely changed out our plates and we put each new item on a plate with several sauces from the other dishes on it was confusing at best. We sat with empty water glasses for most of the dinner and I was drinking only water. When you are dropping that kind of money on a meal, you expect a certain level service. This location came up way short.

my wife and i have been to the bazaar many times, and have always thoroughly enjoyed everything about the restaurant. we took our friends on november 17 to celebrate the husband's return to the states from a three year work posting in singapore. there was no welcome, acknowledgement, or congratulations to our friends and our celebration dinner. we brought two bottles of our own wine, and were fine when told that there was a $50 per bottle corkage fee.

we all ordered "jose's favorites tasting menu," consisting of sixteen courses, and three desserts. as food began to be served at our table, our wine had not yet been poured. i asked our server about this, and she replied the wine steward was very busy, but would be with us shortly. unfortunately, two of our courses were already served before the wine steward arrived to pour our wine.

the quality of the dishes was up to our expected standards, and we enjoyed our meal. however, when i got home, i looked over the copy of jose's favorites tasting menu that we were given at our table, and discovered that one of the courses, the "king crab can" had not been served to our party!

i wrote an email to ricardo gomez, the general manager of the bazaar, sharing the concerns listed above. it has been more than a week, and i am disappointed at the lack of acknowledgement of my concerns by ricardo, or anyone else at the restaurant. while the food at the bazaar remains top notch, the service on this occasion was not. i expect more from the bazaar.

We decided to celebrate our 10 year anniversary at Bazaar and they did NOT disappoint!
EVERYTHING was Ahhhhmazing and I'm not exaggerating!
I've never been to Bazaar and made reservations on Open Table and you're able to add a note. I let them know it was our 10 yr annv and requested a booth table. My bf was surprised we got a booth until u told him I requested it and he was like this is dope. They even had a sweet note for us.
The manager came out and served us a special champagne. I can't remember what it was but omg did it go down smooth. All I know is it was Cava something.
Our server Precious picked out a great selection of cheeses and meats. All were paired perfectly.
We ordered the tomahawk steak, potato croquettes, cotton candy foie gras. All delicious. I was super sad that the last order of squash blossoms sold out and I couldn't try it but I'll be back!
To top it off we then moved to the dessert room. They had another booth table ready for us. We were gifted with a cute plate of different chocolates.

Simply put best way to celebrate 10! Thank you Bazaar for making it that much bet

Mixed But Positive: my recent visit to Bazaar was interesting. This upbeat, creative Spanish tapas restaurant has much to recommend it. The service was engaging and very good, and there were some wonderful surprises. The "caprese" salad was spectacular -- and that is saying something given how much this simple dish has been done and overdone over the years. Another surprise was the bruschetta, which was wonderful. But sadly, some of the dishes were lacking. The typical shrimp dish served throughout Spain in simple olive oil with tons of garlic got transmuted here to something like shrimp in an ordinary red sauce, without the garlic which makes the dish so recognizable. Other dishes were good but not great and the (mostly Spanish) wine list is ridiculously overpriced. All that said, the experience was a fun one, the stand outs really stood out, and I would go back.
