Went here after everyone raving about it and was expecting to eat the best pasta dish I've ever had..I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli and it was the opposite. I don't think the pasta was cooked all the way or they cooked it with air bubbles which made it not turn out right. Not sure if I just ordered... More

Without a doubt RAO is the best resturant in Las Vegas. The food is excellent and the service is well worth a giant tip. We eat there on very special occasions

Although everything in Vegas is overpriced, I don't mind paying if the food and service are excellent. I have nothing overly negative to say about Rao's, but the food was very average. The service was fine, but nothing special. If you're going to spend some $$$, there are many better places.

Not sure what all the hype is about... the salads were good and large, but the rest of the meal was lacking and for almost $400 for a couple.. I would have expected better. The restaurant was far from full. The service was okay... but not great. It took us a while to get the bottle of wine we ordered.... More

We had a great dinner at Rao's celebrating our anniversary. Staff was courteous. Food was delicious. Great photos on walls of all celebrities associated with Rao's. It was a great experience.

We all ate different entrees. My grilled salmon on a bed of melt in your mouth rice was amazing. The pastas were good. Several ate the shrimp special of the night and raved about it.

We ate here and at another family style restaurant in the forum shops. Similar food. Loved the restaurant in the forum shops. Rao's was just okay. I would not go out of my way to go here. I can get better food down the street in Pittsburgh. Would not go again. Service was fine.

A great meal is always in store and last night did not disappoint. Having had the pleasure of going to the East Harlem Rao's a few times, this Vegas local is a wonderful eatery. Not quite the ambiance of the NY spot, but the meal itself was outstanding. The service was also excellent and attentive. At no time did we... More

Was seated promptly with no reservation on a Thursday evening in July. Bland waitress but delicious clam linguine! Legit prices with a nice dark atmosphere. Be sure to sit inside not on the no atmosphere patio.
