“Top Notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Beautiful restaurant where you can take clients or celebrate birthdays or holidays. We were just celebrating that we were on vacation and enjoyed every minute of it. I had read in Wine Enthusiast that the restaurant had no corkage fee, so we brought a great bottle of wine with us. Sometimes that doesn't sit well with restaurants, even though it is their policy, but August was very gracious about it. Food was outstanding, dessert was delicious. Service was first class. Very very good. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

“This is a MUST visit restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Across the street from the W and close to Harrahs. This restaurant was a taste sensation. It ranks as one of my top 5 meals. It's pricey and it's worth it.

“Phenomenal and great vegetarian choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

One word: phenomenal. The setting was ambient, service impeccable and food heavenly. Our waitress did come around a little too often, being the one aspect there that gets 4/5 in my book, but even employees met in the hallways told us good evening and asked how we were.
All of the food there was amazing. I got the vegetarian tasting menu and it was truly phenomenal, an experience to remember, although it is made with seasonal vegetables and so will change with the seasons. I was very happy that there was a vegetarian option. Portions are very small, but you get a lot. Everything was approachable but different.

I would definitely come here again for a special occasion!

“Josh Besh hits the trifecta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Ambiance, service and food; all perfection. Definitely bring your Amex or other card with a high limit as it doesn't come cheap but everything here is top notch. The room was lovely and elegant and quiet, the service was amazing and over the top. The wines, french inclined are well represented and serviced. And then the food. The veggie tasting menu, which my daughter had, would make any meat eater happy. The fish and meat dishes that me and my wife had were amazing. And the desserts heavenly. No misses here, highly recommended for a special occasion where you dont mind opening up the pocketbook a little.
