When we arrived at 5:30 the restaurant was pretty much empty, yet 5 minutes later, they seat another couple right on top of us. Luckily, they felt uncomfortable too and asked to be moved a few minutes later. We had the $65 per person pre-theatre menu. The lobster tortellini were bland and mainly pasta, so you didn't taste the filling at all, but they were cooked perfectly al dente. The squash soup was much better and a larger portion. The phyllo crusted Dover Sole was very good and worth trying to replicate at home. It was very simple, but flavorful. It was served with a wonderful dijon sauce, mashed potatoes and a watercress garnish, so it lacked a vegetable. It was also a nice portion. The wines by the glass were excessively expensive, as everything else in Vegas seems to be. The dessert was boring...root beer float with two cookies. It was tasty, but not worthy of a AAA Four Diamond restaurant. Most disappointing was our server. He got us what we needed, but wasn't welcoming or hospitable and made the meal feel a bit awkward. When I had made the reservation online, I had said we were celebrating my husband's birthday and it wasn't even acknowledged.

The table-side prep and presentation of the food was very nice and the food was good, but overall, just an okay experience.

$210.+ plus tip

Maine Lobster Tortellini -- delectable

Truffle Rissotto (PERFECT)

Porterhouse for 2 - great - but it took us 20 minutes to receive it after the appetizers. They actually gave us "on the house- beef cheek and fingerling potato sides with it) We did not complain or anything.. but I guess they KNOW when these things happen. I love that.

Brussel Sprouts (It was chopped up in small pieces - it was too watery)

Overall experience was good. The servers were on point.

A lovely restaurant in the Bellagio. Service was 10+. It's a small restaurant that concentrates on fine food and they are very successful. The phyllo crusted sole was the best I've ever had. I noticed so many people were eating the lobster pot pie -- it looked grand. Their menu is well beyond the norm. It was a lovely dining experience.

Food was good but a bit pricey. Service was very slow and wait staff seemed unengaged. Having eaten at Michael Mina's restaurant in San Francisco, this didn't come close. On the other hand, the food quality is definitely a notch above most restaurants in Las Vegas.

If you go to Mina's, go for the Pre-theatre Menu. Great choices and anything at Michael Mina's would be incredible. Another must try is Mina's wine pairing gives you excellent choices (even for a snob like myself).
