Went here for dinner on my own a couple of nights before a work conference. It was a saturday so I booked a table on opentable a few days before without any problem.
Started with canapés, a very light foie gras and opted for the a la carte menu.
Amuse buche of chestnut cappuccino with Lardon foam and spicy bread was a good hint of things to come. Opted from the choice of breads for bacon bread and the butter is worthy of a mention too, very good.
Had the soft poached egg and caviar with smoked salmon, potato and Creme fraiche for starter which was excellent, well balanced with the breadcrumbs on the egg were nice and crisp.
Main was Paupiette of sea bass in thin potato slices on leeks with Pinot noir reduction, very good. Fish was well cooked and the potato on the outside was nice and crisp.
Took a little while to decide on the dessert but had a good chat with the waiter (who correctly guessed and wrote down my choice before I said it!) opted for Crème brûlée which was a little too sweet and too gelatinous but generally of a good standard.
Petit fours (4 of them) pastry excellent, caramel crunch a bit thick on profiterole (being very picky here and the other 3 were faultless!).
Chablis at $15 a glass was very drinkable. I was done in little over an hour. Some excellent looking soufflés being served for dessert. Service overall was excellent. Like the decor like a big top and could see bits of the fountain regularly too even though I was sat at the opposite side of the small dining room to the windows. Tables by the window would be excellent for a special occasion.
Will definitely be going back next time I'm in Vegas to try the chocolate ball or one of the soufflés.
Total was around $130 before tip and worth every penny.
