“Tasty Food In A Lovely Atmosphere With Just Average/So-So Service”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We have wanted to dine here for some time.

We did not make a reservation and came by at about 5:45pm on a Friday night. Hostess said they had NO open tables till at least 7:30pm. So, we opted to eat in the lovely bar area. Sadly, some big mouth lunatic and his gf sat down at the next table over. He had such a LOUD mouth. Yelling, not talking. You know...your freakin dinner companion is just across the table...say, a foot away. Tone it down. I finally said something to the effect that we were not dining in a Sports Bar. He got the message.

The restaurant is lovely...almost a tropical feeling to it. There is a back wall with stone that changes color...with "hot red lava" showing thru the backdrop of the stones. Really nice. Your choice of tables or booths. Many tables for larger parties. Nice background music.

Anyway, our waitress kind of rushed us. We needed a few minutes, or longer to look over the wine list. Then, she disappeared for quite awhile. Luckily, they work in teams and another lady came over to take our order.

Wine was very nice for the price. Thank you. But, the salads and bread came out pronto. TOOOO quick. Let's have a drink before the food comes out, shall we?

House salads had a tad too much of balsamic vinegar in the mix. Not much beside lettuce though. Still good and very ample portion. Bread basket and butter was de-lious!

So, we noticed...MANY tables in the "actual" restaurant STILL open for us to sit at...even though we were forced to sit in the bar area.

We spilt a NY strip steak. We would have thought they would have split it for us(we told the waitress) and most upscale places do that. But, no, we did the cutting. We also had to wait for another plate to come out for us. The mashed potatoes were so good. Nice & creamy. Steak needed a couple minutes more on the grill. Still good.

No one ever came back to our table to pour us more wine from the bottle we purchased. I guess they could not be bothered. Water glasses were filled though. They asked if we wanted dessert and we did not have room for much. Also, dessert prices kinda high for what was offered($9.00).

Also, for such a nice place, they need to have the COURAGE to enforce a DRESS CODE. No sneakers, shorts, etc. Open after 5:00pm, so no one needs to come from sightseeing right in. Go put on some decent clothes.

It took a while for our waitress to pick up the bill. We were ready to leave about 15 minutes ago. Also, PLEASE do NOT call us "guys". We're not freakin 20 years old. But, either was the waitress :)

When we were about to leave, two couples came up to the hostess stand. Neither had reservations...BUT...they were taken back to the actual restaurant area where we really wanted to sit. I guess ALOT...and I mean ALOT, of NO SHOWS.

All in all, we will go back and make a dinner reservation for the dining room next time. Hopefully, the service will be as good as the food and drink there. It really wasn't so good in the bar area.

We still give it a 4.

“Amazing happy hour and bartendresses !!! You Rock lady's and chefs”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Absolutely awesome wonderful place.. We eat there frequently and always have such a fun time... Not very often do u go out and have such a relaxing time.. Doesn't matter if your with a group or by yourself Michelle and Ingrid well keep u company and make u feel right at home.. Those girls are the best and always remember how like my steaks and my drinks.. There have even rock out drinks for 18 of us with a full bar in like 5 mins. I've been coming here for a while and there been a chAnge in staff in the bar over the year and these girls rock and are bar the best . Even when they are always worked way to hard... The food consistancy is top notch and always awesome specials and weve even meet both chefs before and hooked us up with specials not planned for that night and dAm I don't know how the bartenders ramble them off every night and that is the most exciting part 10 specials explsined detailed and perfect .now plan on maybe waiting for a table for happy hour any night because there AlwYs busy and if u want the dinning room I would recommend reservation.. This place is my secret hide away and I hope food and staff stick around ... Cause I send dozens of people there... My only change would be make the happy hour back to earlier during the week 8 is just to let for business men and women and older people like me... 5 to 8 pleaseeeeee

“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were looking for a good steak/ seafood restaurant for a party of 8. I read tons of reviews and stumbled upon this restaurant. What a perfect choice for our special evening! We were seated in a private room. The service was excellent and the manager checked on us twice. The food was delicious. My prime rib was flavorful and tender. The bread basket was exceptional! Everyone else's food was just as good i cannot say enough good things about this place and highly recommend it.

“Inconsistent tapas”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Due to a plane delay, we arrived in Las Vegas later than planned and decided on having a light snack before turning in. In the bar/lounge area of this restaurant, tapas are served that are currently being discounted by 50% beginning at 8PM. We shared orders of bacon wrapped dates (4.5 Forks out of a possible 5), a trio of BBQ prime rib sliders (3 Forks) and piquillo peppers stuffed with garlic cream cheese w/marinara (2.5 Forks).

The only problem with these tapas has been consistency. We have had the dates served with little balsamic reduction sauce, but this evening’s were among the best. Conversely, the piquillo peppers were smaller and less tangy than in the past. Win some; lose some, but this remains a great deal in any case. ($15.97)

We returned later in the trip for the ½ priced tapas starting off toasted almond martinis which have an in-house made cream base with vanilla beans. (4.5 Sips) We also ordered meatballs (3 Forks) and bacon wrapped dates (2.5) The tapas were good, but the kitchen’s problems with consistency were once more in evidence. There was almost no balsamic reduction sauce with the dates. I think we will have to keep going back until they get it right. LOL

“good prime rib and tapas”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Twin Creeks serves a mean prime rib, perfectly salted and reasonably priced. That alone is worth a visit.

They also started serving a variety of eclectic and delicious tapas, including beef stroganoff, steak house sliders and more traditional plates.

TC has one of the best whiskey selections you’ll find in Vegas, with three varieties of Pappy van Winkle and all of the famous small batch bourbons, as well as the enough single malt scotches to please the most discriminating palates.

Service is always friendly and the prices are more than reasonable.

If you are looking for an unpretentious, affordable steakhouse with good quality food and drink Twin Creeks definitely rates a visit.
