“trick you!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2008

Was very excited to try this steakhouse! Food was very good but pricey! Had a party of four! and waitress failed to tell us they could not give us 2 seperate checks!!!!! we only had credit card so got stuck paying for everyone! Then to give a tip on friends card had to charge extra!! Everyone had their hand out for money! If wasn't for staff and tricky rules it would have been a great dinner!

“Our favorite restaurant in Vegas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2008

Let me begin by stating that this restaurant is our only "must" when in Vegas. In a city full of great restaurants, this is the only one that we continuously return to during each visit. We recently ate there (Thursday, June 12th) and were not the least bit disappointed. While on a trip with friends, we suggested N9NE and hoped that they would share our feelings about the great atmosphere, service, and of course...the food. Again, it did not disappoint. In the past, we have ordered appetizers, however, we wanted to enjoy our cocktails and save room for the s'mores dessert, therefore, we did not sample the mouth watering shrimp as we have done in the past. Our meal began with lobster bisque (my husband) and french onion soup (me). I believe that this french onion soup is my favorite of any restaurant. The use of sweet onions is simply fantastic. N9NE is a steakhouse, therefore, we ordered filet mignon and a surf and turf combo. My filet was perfect - mouth watering, juicy pink center without being "too" bloody. Because our table held four people with various tastes, we ordered entirely too many sides. The wait staff was wonderful and did tell us that this might be "too much" food, however, we wanted to sample all of it. We had the gnocchi (the only item we weren't fond of), mushrooms (a must with your meal), lobster mashed potatoes, asparagus, and more. My husband believes that the lobster mashed potatoes are a must when in this restaurant. Finally, the meal ended with s'mores. This was a fun dessert to share among friends - fire, chocolate, marshmellow...need I say more. The meal was made complete with several bottles of wine from the extensive wine list. After reading the reviews of other visitors, I agree with most of the opinions re: this hotspot. It is loud when compared to some of the other Vegas venues. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner, then this might not be the best choice. However, if you are looking for incredible service, a fun atmosphere, and delicious food - this restaurant meets all criteria. This is NOT simply a restaurant behind a name. The night after we ate here, we went to Delmonico's. All four of us were extremely disappointed in our meals. It seemed as if the waitstaff wasn't as friendly, the food was just mediocre, and the overall atmosphere was bland. This could be summed up by stating that we feel N9Ne is just "that much better...." To top off a great meal, the service inside and out of the restaurant is magnificent. After dinner, we were whisked into the VIP line and escorted up to Ghost Bar (no cover charge necessary - probably a good thing after the $600+ in N9NE). The Ghost Bar view is incredible. The gentleman who escorted us up the top was kind enough to offer info on hotel development and even told us to find him if we needed anything else or wanted to go to a different club. Again, way beyond the "call of duty". I guess what sums up our experiences here is this:
Last Thursday, our waiter had our table as well as the manager for a popular band playing in the resort. Both tables were treated very well. Not once did we feel neglected for someone attached to a famous name.

During a different trip, Leonardo DiCaprio was hosting a birthday dinner while we dined. Again, we noticed no difference in treatment.
This restaurant has been described as "trendy" or "the Hollywood scene". That may be true, however, the food is great and the service is magnificent. This is A MUST when in Sin City.

Excellent steaks and sides but what make this place so much fun is the people you bump into. We were seated next to the Red Sox and that was awesome. Laid back vibe puts everyone at ease - great fun and good food.

“Bad service, great menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2008

We visited on May 15th, and were very excited about the menu. Great steaks and side options, all priced like any a la carte steakhouse. The atmosphere was a little weird, just be prepared for how cold and club like it feels, its cool, just weird to eat so much with such loud music and club lighting.

Our waiter was borderline rude to us, seemed very judgemental when we didn't order bottled water and wine (we were drinking, just not the same kind of drinks, but he seemed worried his bill wouldn't be high enough the whole time). When he came to the table (way too long after we got our steaks) to check on things, he said to us that he assumed everything was wonderful. I showed him how overdone my $45 steak was and he was very embarrassed. They re-cooked it, but again, he was much too late the rest of the table was done before I ever got mine. No big deal at outback, but unacceptable at N9NE. To make up for the $45 error, they brought a free $9 dessert. We didn't argue because we weren't trying to get anything for free, but it was a little tacky on their part.

The highlight of the menu is the side dishes, all much more creative than a Ruth Chris or a Morton's for example.

Overall I didn't enjoy the experience like we had planned to or hoped to for $300 (2 people). My advice would be to order bottled water and hope you don't get our waiter or chef!
