Upon entering the dining room its pitch dark, you can't see your hand in front of your face. Our server was great and made this 7 course mystery meal fun and the food was amazing I might add. I would definitely recommend this if you're...looking to try something differentMore

Had seen video’s on YouTube and wanted a non traditional experience while visiting Las Vegas. I booked our reservation a few days in advance, which I highly suggest. Our reservation was at 4:30 pm on a Thursday evening. All indications say they don’t open until...5 pm but that was not the case. You walk in and are greeted, sign a few legal waivers, and are given a lock for a locker located near the restrooms. I suggest you use the restroom at this time. Just before entering they show you an alcohol menu and at this time you meet your server. Our server was fantastic. Added the right about of verbal humor to go along with the experience. The first 30 seconds that they lead you into the darkened dining room might get you at first. They safely lead you to your table/seat and drinks follow soon after. Once you are seated the real fun begins. You can’t see a thing, but the music playing relaxes you as you wait for your seven course meal to arrive. Everything served is plant based and at the very beginning they ask about potential food allergies. The whole experience lasts 60-90 minutes depending on your number of guests involved. For two of us to dine it was right at $200 before gratuity. It’s not cheap but it was well worth the laughs we shared. I can highly suggest trying it if you are looking for a unique experience in Las Vegas.More

Fun and different way to have dinner. It is as they say, dark, very dark, pitch black! We were given small clues as to what our meal was....ie: You have a bowl of this when it's cold. Never told what we were eating and it...was more challenging than I thought to figure out what we had. You are shown the menu at the end, but pictures of the dishes would have been appreciated. Make sure you wash your hands - you will eat some dishes without utensils. (you don't have to, but it's suggested for one or two of the courses. I ordered the wine flight, 7 glasses to pair with the 7 courses. Glad I tried it. Have fun if you go, that's what it's there for!More

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant! A quick uber from our hotel landed us at the coolest adventure dining experience!! My first time was 2 years ago and I could not wait to go back!. We ate at Blackout on Friday, March 18th. Out server was...the best, she was happy and fun and called us by our names and gave my daughter "a special birthday treat". YES, it is pitch black ! NO, you can not see anything. Staring at blackness is definitely an experience, Eyes open or Eyes closed???? The menu is Vegan and low allergy (& they do accommodate). We had a 7 course meal and there was SOOOO much food, you better come hungry!. We tried everything, it was all good, some I wanted seconds on! There is no menu, so it is fun to try to guess what you are eating. 5 stars to the Chef for such a creative menu. (you will get to see the menu when you leave). They offer free lockers to put your belongings in and they do offer a bar menu. So go and have a great time !!!More

We tried this restaurant out for a different experience, and that it was. It was so fun. So dark you couldn't see anything. Our server Adam made us feel comfortable and used his humor to make it that much better. Before going, we were skeptical...of eating in the dark and not knowing what we were going to be eating. It all worked out great. Food and drinks were great. Cons: Quite pricey. The $89/person advertised price is only a fraction of the total after a few bar drinks. As expected of course, but I did not expect each drink to cost SO much. After dinner, we were expecting to actually see the dishes that were prepared for us. At the end we were shown the menu, but seeing the actual food (or a photo) of the actual plates would have allowed us to put the real image with our imagined image.More

Lets first start off with stating how VERY nervous I was to do this dinner! I am very picky about food textures and was extremely nervous about not knowing what I was going to eat. When we walked into the dining room, I was shocked...at just how truly dark it was! I've never experienced a dark like that before and spent a lot of time just sitting there with my eyes closed. Why? Because it didn't make a difference! It's really that dark! The only light you see is the little red light from the waiter's night vision goggles. I'm stressing the darkness because there were several women that were seated with what sounded like a large group that freaked out within a few minutes of being there and begged to leave. So, if you're afraid of the dark, it's not to be taken lightly! It was easy enough to navigate the table as long as you just slid your hand to find your glass or utensils. Definitely don't just waive your hands about looking for things. We heard several glasses break during our meal. The food was pretty good but I felt like some of the courses were over-seasoned. I know that when you take one of your senses away, the others are heightened, so it was either our taste buds were extremely heightened or the food was overly seasoned. The dessert however was PERFECT and yummy! If you're also weird about textures, have whomever is with you try the course first to let you know what it's like. My husband booked the dinner and promised he'd do that for me and it worked! Overall, it's an amazing experience. I told so many people about it and will keep recommending it! Oh and, our waiter Chris was TOP NOTCH!! He really was the best!More

When they say blackout, they mean it. You are lead in hand on shoulder guided by your server. We had George and he made the experience one of a kind. Precise directions to find silverware, water glass, and a cocktail. As the first plates of...the seven course meal start to arrive, your nose and ears and fingers are the only tell you have as to what you are about to taste. Flavor, texture, temperature is all you have to go by. You can guess all you want and pick out components like we did but we're still surprised in the end. Definitely would recommend and if you have an extra seat I would gladly accompany you on your adventure. Book your reservation before you go. Enjoy a one of a kind experience.More

This was so much fun! I was a bit skeptical going in because I can be a picky eater, but the food was amazing. There were a couple of items in one or two of the courses that I normally wouldn't like, but with the...way they were prepared, I had no idea what I was eating and was pleasantly surprised when I found out at the end of the meal. Trying to figure out what we were eating during the meal was amusing. Staff was friendly and fun and guided us through the meal perfectly.More

We have gone to Blackout Dining In the Dark 3 times now and we are ALWAYS amazed at the fun and quality of this experience. We have had our server Rosco each time we’ve been and he is a hoot! The food is delicious and...all vegan, but even being a non vegan, it is crazy delicious! Hands down the one thing we always try and do when we come to Vegas! Highly highly recommend!More

Great fun experience of eating totally in the dark. The staff were excellent and guided you both to your table and the food courses. The food itself was ok but not great. I can understand that they are catering to the masses and therefore cant...take any chances with flavors or spice etc. Definitely go for the experience but don't expect gourmet food.More

This is definitely the most crazy experience and I did not realize how much anxiety a dark room would give me much less eating food I coukd not see and know what they were. It took several hours and the food was very expensive. As...ming as you know what you are getting into it should be enjoyable for most wanting a different type of dining experience.More

Our time at Blackout Dining was terrible. The food was so underwhelming when it is supposed to be the main focus of this experience. There was very little flavor - just multiple courses of vegetables. I was already upset with the value of the meal...but it was even worse when a surprise $45 PER PERSON admission fee was added to the bill.More
