The food was delicious. They don't even let you know what you are eating until you are finished. (The menu is vegan and the will allow for any dietary restrictions.) It is weird how everything tasted familiar but I couldn't figure out what it was...because I didn't already know what it was. Such a unique experience.More

I'm normally a budget eater, but this was TOTALLY worth the money. The entire experience was so much fun. Going in, you don't know what to expect, but my friends and I had never laughed so hard and had so much fun in a restaurant....All the food was delicious, and it's a 7 course meal, so you will definitely leave here full and fully satisfied!More

We really did not know what to expect - but the experience would be worth repeating! My husband and I had an awesome time and pretty much ate until we could hardly move :)

We ate at Blackout dining last week when we were in Vegas. We were looking for something different to do in Vegas and this was absolutely a highlight! We were lucky enough to have Zee as our waiter. We had to pick up anything that...may make light prior to going into the dining area. They allow you Elton acclimate to the darkness prior to putting your group in a Congo line to get you to your table. Zee was Awesome! He kept us informed on what was going on, and he was super stealthy! It was such an intriguing experience having my party’s voices coming out of nowhere while we laughed and talked about the experience. The food was good. There wasn’t massive amounts of it per course, which I personally liked, as it allowed me to eat all 7!courses. We had some big guys in our party and they all thought portion sizes were just right as well. It was awesome talking about what we each thought we were eating as well, as there were many different guesses. I e got to find out at the very end of the dinner. Overall it was a highly enjoyable experience and I would do it again!!More

We made our reservation after researching BLACKOUT. We had never dined in the dark before. I have food allergies so knowing that the food was plant based and they have a gluten free menu really put me at ease. We arrived and were greeted by...a friendly young lady. She checked us in and gave us our locker for personal belongings. Our server, Kory came out and introduced himself to us. He was an absolute delight all evening. He relieved the nervous feelings we had through humor and by providing an all around positive vibe. He escorted us into the dark. It really is pitch black. He was attentive, humorous, and professional. We savored 7 courses of delicious mystery food. We both enjoyed everything. It was really fun to experience food without being able to see. They knew we were there for a special occasion, so they helped my fiancé surprise me by providing him with a rose to give me. After our incredible dining experience ended, we gradually went back into the light. We got to see our menu (which was creative, diverse, and as we already knew delicious). The hostess took pictures of us and we were on our way. I highly recommend trying BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark and suggest going in hungry because they do not shy away from portion size! We would love to have one of these open in the Seattle area.More

So I always try something new when we come to Vegas. So the first thing everyone needs to know is this is a vegan menu, big surprise to me. But, the chef was incredible. Food was surprisingly good. It was a crazy experience eating in...the dark. A little disorienting to begin with, but you used to it quickly. A big shout out to our waiter "Z", he was awesome and made the experience even better!More

Ok, it was interesting what your mind does when you cant see your hand in front of your face while eating a multi course mystery meal. We did not enjoy the meal itself at all but the experience was fun.

Went solo tonight for dinner while my husband was in meetings. I thought it would be awkward but I had the best server who made it lots of fun! Liam was so nice and made the evening awesome (how often do you give your server...a hug after dinner?). The whole experience begins when you walk in the door. The food was very good and I felt confident that I wouldn’t be eating anything “weird!” I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something a bit different to do! All of the servers were funny and engaging, even in total darkness! I’d definitely go again. If you happen to be in Vegas, include this in your plans and ask for Liam!More

I am not vegan at all, I love meat. We had no idea it was vegan and it was amazing. There are only allergy restrictions, you get no choice in the menu at all. Food is very good, dont get hung up on it being vegan.
