This stunning rotunda-like space leaves behind the staid, heavy aesthetic associated with chophouses for something sexy, surreal and altogether different.

“Lovely ambiance and food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Lovely ambiance. We sat on the patio bit and was nice and romantic. Food was lovely. Had a nice bread basket and partner said it was one of the best steaks he'd had. Only complaint was that food was a bit salty and it wasn't cheap but would go back again.

“Very good but there is better”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting for dinner one night, they take real pride in the presentation and quality of the food.

However i do feel that sometimes the food is over complicated and mismatched with flavours, its a bit of a shame.

Its certainly not cheap and i would question if its value for money, there its certainly better options around, that said it was overall a pleasant experience.

“Great ambiance and steak -- get the bone-in filet.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Botero is my fav steak restaurant over many other high end places (cut, carnedivino, boa etc). It's not cheap but I think its well worth the money especially if you are in visiting Vegas. I had dinner there recently and the first thing you notice about the place is the amazing ambiance! Dark and nice decor all around. The restaurant's decor want to make you stay there longer and hang out after you finish your meal. We had the shell fish combo (decent), rib eye (good!) and bone-in filet (amazing!). The bone-in filet was cooked perfectly. Right thickness and perfect in flavors.
