Great food and beer selection. Service just ok, but I'll definitely return.
Very pricey, but the food and selection were terrific. New standard for Vegas buffet.
We loved Absinthe. Equal parts hilarious, raunchy, and breathtaking. As others have mentioned, though, if you're not into being a part of the show, don't sit in the first 5 rows or so.
Super great time! The steaks were good, side dishes were amazing (spinach was unreal), and the applies were great. Best part though was the service. Polite, knowledgable, but best of all they were really fun. They added to our fantastic anniversary meal and evening.
This was my first show in Vegas and was intrigued by the sensual overtones. The show was entertaining! Funny, somewhat acrobatic, but the eroticism is very low key. I expected sex overdrive with this being Vegas and all, but not that much. An entertaining show. Good drinks.
These reviewers take the fun out of everything. Honestly I found it somewhat challenging and definitely not geared toward kids. It needs some updating but was kinda interesting to check out. Good time waster.
Best buffet in Las Vegas .I tell all my friends to go there!
We have seen lots of shows in Vegas. This one was definitely the best. Great variety. Even though some of the impersonations fall short, the talent of the singers are remarkable. This is a must see.
Positively the worst Vegas show I have seen. The humor is raunchy and would be hilarious to most 14 year old boys. The story line is sappy, and all the characters obnoxious.
If you were raised on 80"s music, that might be a plus, but if not, avoid this show at all cost.
This place often gets a bad rap. Sure, it's not a new and shiny place, but it has a lot a great things about it. Low rates, remodeled rooms and steps from the monorail to name a few. I always enjoy staying at this property!
Excellent. We have eaten there for both breakfast and lunch and had great service and food. Very extensive menu for a cafe and nice size portions. I had the ahi tuna salad and it was Awesome. Good food, good service and per vegas standards decent pricing. Will be back next time in town.
Best part of the experience is we got seated right away. From that point on it was like we were invisible. Servers walking all around us for over well over 5 minutes and the place was not that crowded. We just got up,and walked out and told the hostess to free up our table. She just smiled and said have a good night. Food might be good if you can served. Not sure if will be back as the service is just as important as the food.
Recently my son's and I had a retirement party for my wife Debbie at the Mrkt Sea and Land Restaurant at the Aliante Casino. From the incredible options we were offered on the menu, that was coordinated by Jon Landolfi, the Casino's (Specialty Restaurant Manager), the night was nothing short of fantastic. From the service for the night that was led by (Mo), and the served to perfection food, the night was a great success. Everything was 1st class all the way. A special thanks to Casino host (Roger Sergent) who made it all possible from start to finish. You will not find a better place to hold any function or get together or find better people to get the job done than these folks. All in all, the Aliante Casino will be my go to place for all occasions. Thank you so much for this lifetime memorable event. Tim
This joint literally had me at hello. From the moment I walked in to the final comments when checking out, the staff at Aria put on a clinic for outstanding customer service. The room had cool little extras like the drapes opening automatically when you open the door and the tv turning on while displaying your name. The bedding is extremely inviting and comfortable. The fitness center is the most spacious I have seen with more than enough equipment. The pool area only had one pool open, but the attendant took the time to illustrate what it would look like at peak season. Bellagio used to be my "go to" property when I craved a higher end experience; not anymore. I will be back.
Visited for the first time the week before the Super Bowl. Like it but did not stay as we were booked at a Strip Hotel. Staff was very friendly and so were the dealers. Would consider staying at some time in the future. One thing to note is the shuttle from Fashion Square is NOT free. It is a convenience for registered guests of Redrock. Cab ride was $50 each way from The Strip.
Second review in 5 months. Returned last Friday, Jan 31 & this is still food worthy of the most selective purveyor of Asian cuisine. I tried the Singapore Mei Fun noodles & I wanted to order a second helping. Also dined on delectable shrimp tempura and various appetizers with my friends and family. There is one mushroom appetizer but I can't remember the name of it. Will return again & again. Will always be a given visit on all Vegas trips!!!
Great, great, GREAT!! Visited last Saturday, Feb.1 My friend & I sat at the bar & enjoyed awesome nachos as well as happy hour beer specials. I'd recommend the same because the chat with Reuben aka "Sandwich" the bartender was worth the trip! Great staff & very affordable prices!!!
Very good food and LOTS of it. Service was excellent. Visited the Mirage several times overt the last few years and have always wanted to go in but unable till this visit. Will make a point to return.
Since I had eaten at Samba the evening before I was not in the mood for steak so I had the salmon instead. Excellent!!! Service was great and the entire feel of the place was modern fused with traditional. Enjoyed, highly recommend, and will return.
Love the food and great atmosphere. Didn't have to wait to long for food either. Reasonable prices as well.
Amazing hotel rooms!!! Very clean and elegant. Loved the accommodations in the room with the fridge and views. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to everyone as well. Very nice pool too.
Rooms were very nice. Asking for extra towels was like pulling teeth though. Very long lines for checking in and out as well.
Great show with something for everyone to enjoy. Not a bad seat in the arena either. Would recommend this show to everyone.
Great burgers at a great price
Sorry!! I meant to give level 107 a 5!! Love it.
It is worth the trip to that part of the strip.
This is one of the best happy hour bargains in town (4pm-7pm) Two for one fabulous martini's (the two have to be the same flavor) and half price appetizers. Since this is one of my regular stops every visit, I've been able to try about every appetizer on their menu - chicken lollipops and roasted tomato fondue are amazing. The portions are large and you won't need dinner. As for the martini's - plenty strong and oh so good. (Lemon drop is my favorite)
I believe there is a fee to go to the observation tower, but no charge if you are going to the lounge/restaurant or are a guest at the Stratosphere.
You just can't beat this place for the atmosphere and the beautiful evening Las Vegas skyline.
Awesome steakhouse. Their bone in filet was prob one of the best I've ever ate. And I'm a steak connoisseur. Ask for Robert to be your waiter. We've had him twice and he is awesome. Will make your experience that much better
F*ckin incredible. Had the best experience at Tao. From appetizer to dinner to dessert holy sh*t it was amazing. Definitely get the donut dessert. One of a kind. But do it fast cause they are changing the menu soon we heard
This is a fun family friendly show in an intimate theatre. Mike is a talented entertainer who will keep you laughing, smiling and engaged the entire show. The audience participation is clever, persistent and in good taste. This show is a great value for the ticket price. My adult son and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Tasty sandwiches but service wasn't greet and lines usually annoyingly long. Took us a really, really long time to get our food.
Good location right next to the sports book and nearly inside the casino. Good place to sit and people watch. Pizza and service just ok though.
As burger places go on the strip, this one is less than stellar. Price point a tad high for the product, in my opinion.
Just like your local Hooters except with video poker at the bar. Actually really enjoyed playing VP with my wings.
The Nugget is comparable to strip properties in a number of ways. Buffet is not one of them. Breakfast is fine, but this place feels like a remodel has to be on the horizon.
Service has been an issue for me the two times I have been here. That said, the food is solid and the beer is actually really good. Small place, but lines not really a problem. Worth a try for a quick bite and beer.
My favorite restaurant in Las Vegas. Not only is the food and service terrific, but the value is hard to beat. Great place to have a date, but just as good with a group.
Good queso, not great service and food took forever on a night that wasn't all that busy.
Really like these rooms. We stayed in the 1BR suite, which had a pull out sofa. Slept two guys and the kitchen with full fridge for beer plus awesome projector tv was great for March Madness.
We stopped by for a quick bite and have to say, everything about it was average. Nothing really stood out about the place, which is too bad because the D seems to stand out in just about every other way.
Tasty tapas and good service. We were a little disappointed with our drinks, but the food and presentation were both outstanding.
The cocktails are good, but if you're just a beer drinker, they have a very good selection of some craft brews. GREAT deal to sit and play video poker and get some legit beer.
Outstanding pizza, especially after a few cocktails. Worth the walk if you're anywhere near the Cosmo and hungry late at night. -Kevin in KC
Amazing hotel downtown! The lobby is striking and we found the service to be spot on throughout. Will definitely recommend and return!
I recently visited Vegas for the ninth time since 2010. I've stayed at numerous resorts on the Strip and downtown. The rooms in some lower end ones didn't quite cut it, while the atmosphere in the higher end ones seemed a bit snooty and over my head. The Mirage seems like a good fit for me. The casino is spacious and the servers, while a bit slow (but isn't that the case everywhere in town now?), were friendly and willing to go the extra mile. They all seemed to be veterans to the game.
The buffet was a decent size and included an unlimited select bar when we were there. We also dined at Heritage Steak. My partner is a butcher, so we know our meat. I had the tobasco pepper Kobe skirt and he had the filet. Mine was quite tender for skirt and I liked the flavour, but didn't get much heat off of it. His filet was a poor, chewy cut. Our food came to us very quickly. My favourite filet in town remains that from Michael Mina at Bellagio. Note: if you have Platinum M Life status you can go to the front of the line at any of the casual dining joints here. Helpful to know when you see the Carnegie Deli line! Rhumbar continues to be a favourite of mine for cocktails and the rum punch happy hour.
I went to the Yoga Among the Dolphins class. The cost seems a bit more realistic once you find out that it includes all day access to the spa facility and a smoothie following the class. The dolphins were very happy and friendly and the class was good for me at my intermediate stage. There were others in the class who were beginners and they did okay, too. While the spa did not have the variety of amenities I have seen elsewhere, it was quite nice and relaxing. I will return.
We were comped a Strip view king room. The room was comfortable and modern with a great view up and down the strip. Due to the "V" shape of the hotel, this meant a looong walk to the room from the elevator bank. We're not talking West Wing at MGM long, but still plenty at the end of the night in heels. The bathroom was tiny, but water pressure was stellar. I guess if you get a resort tower king room you get more bathroom space, but I'm not sure what this would mean for a view. The room door blocked zero sound from the hall, but it didn't bug me that much since we were basically at the end. The first day our room never got made up, so I had to call housekeeping at 9 p.m., but they had someone up within ten minutes to do the job. These are the reasons I didn't give 5 chips as a rating, but they were small negatives against the important positives.
The location cannot be beat here. We have stayed at other resorts nearby, but didn't feel as centrally located to anywhere you could possibly want to go as we did here. At the end of the trip we both remarked at how we felt like we barely walked at all to get most places. If you are a first timer, need to pack a lot into only a few days, or don't like sore tootsies, I definitely recommend the Mirage.
All of the staff I encountered were extremely accommodating and I truly felt that they all cared that I had a great experience during my stay. Our casino host is very honest, helpful, and down-to-earth. We will be back more than once.
Great food. Beer and wine were super expensive.
Excellent meal. Great ambiance. Delicious drinks and food. We wished we had room for deserts. Those looked amazing.
Waste of money. Most of the food looked like it had been sitting out. And was questionable looking as well. You had to get bread out of store plastic bags on a table several people had mistaken for a plate return. Hardly anything vegetarian. Labels are hard to read.
remarkable, exceptional, extraordinary, amazing, astonishing, astounding, sensational, stunning, incredible, unbelievable.
OMG! Best steak I have ever eaten. It's pricey but well worth it for a special evening. The service was incredible!
Must see! The best what we saw! Great artistic!
Just the place to relax and people watch. Try the Para-sol cocktail- a pear martini to die for. Home-made chips come with, along with a nice selection of nuts( both to eat and to watch walk by!). ;)
Quite easily the best show in Vegas. Consummate performances from the whole cast. Forget acrobats singing in unknown languages. This is definitely worth a look. If we were staying longer we would go and see it again.
I stayed for a week. This is the second time I stay here and I love it. The bed is exquisite and I love the bathroom too. I did not like the guy at check-in but everybody else was very polite with us. The housekeeping people were very nice people and greeted me very morning. I also loved the buffette. However I did not like the fact that they started charging a little more at the buffette for the holidays and it was nothing different than before the holidays. Except the price.
This place has become a final stop for me before the flight home. Have a drink at the bar, order take out burger and fries, head back to room at Aria or MO, and devour that delicious burger as I take in the view of this amazing city. Burgers never disappoint and bartender is always attractive and attentive.
Another terrific dining experience here. Spaghetti was just as good as last time. Would highly recommend a dinner here. Or even a seat at the bar for a few cocktails and a light meal.
Three stars only. Best to go for the early games (10am) when many football games are on tv. Boring if only one game is on at night (Sunday or Monday). Food is decent as are drinks. Only worth going one time. Plenty of other options.
This Spa gives Encore's and Mandarin Oriental's a run for its money. Service and Treatment were great and consistent with others. Facilities, including gym and lounge area are very nice and modern feeling. As with most spas, avoid weekends if you enjoy solitude. Bottom line, if staying at Aria, I'd highly recommend the spa here.
My husband's regular haunt. He loves the beer, the food and the ambience of this small casino. The Players Club especially being over 50 with great deals is also worth signing up for.
The Venetian is in a class of its own in many respects. The staff were always helpful. The Venezia tower was outstanding and very peaceful overall. Wife raved about the gym. The casino floor is as lively as you'd want one to be, even during off peak. The poker room is immaculate. My only complaint is the view from my suite. I know I didn't pay extra for a strip view, but seriously all I've seen for 5 nights is a wall outside with a little cheap gardening. "C'mon man!"
This show is a gem, and honestly I was shocked how refined a production it is. It was upbeat, humorous, and clever. And just for me, the ladies in the show were all really attractive, classy, and talented. The interlude acts were also a riot. It is easily the best value show I've seen in Vegas.
KA is one of the most inspiring, artistic, and technically impressive shows on the planet. The performers are simply brilliant in their talents. If it weren't for KA having to turn the vertical fight scene into a bad projector movie, it would be a flawless masterpiece.
Overall Crazy Girls is entertaining and very worth the price of admission if you're in or around the Riviera. The girls do work hard in the show and it's easy to appreciate them. They even wish you well after the show and near the casino floor which was a nice personal gesture. My only qualm is the booth seating. It seats 4, not 5 as stated.
This is the first casino I have literally walked in only to walk right on out without wanting to sit down anywhere. And walking to this casino at night...don't do it.
The Blue Man Group is the most bipolar show I've seen. Parts of the show were hilarious and brilliant. Other parts left me checking the time of day. With a few executive decisions it would be much improved.
If I could give this show 3.5 stars I would have. First and foremost this show is more PG-13 than an X show so keep that expectation in mind. Second, Claire makes many appearances but it's hard to say she was the star performer. On the positive side, the show is very continuous and upbeat. And the reason I rated it as high as I did was the Jazz band. Those dudes had skills.
Overall the food is very authentic, fresh, and served relatively fast. The curry vermicelli dish was truly outstanding. Their chili paste was also a great condiment. Their menu has a wide variety of items. The only minor negative were the prices which add up fast.
Nice atmosphere, good service, and great food! I recommend the Nom Nom burger as well as the shakes.
It's a really cool spot great location on the strip. Have an inside and outside area that is large. Plays a lot of top 40, hip-hop and some EDM music. Drinks are good as well.
Best Pool Parties ever!!! I've been here multiple times and from the friendly staff, the delicious drinks, the banging music this place is off the charts!!! Definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to have a really good. If you don't like really loud music though I don't suggest going otherwise this is the place for you!
Best club ever! The club is extremely large and there are different areas your can go to. They have the Ling Ling Lounge, the Ling ling Clun which plays hip-hop, then on the 4th and 5th floor they normal have a famous guest DJ spinning EDM music. I will warn you there are a lot of stairs to get past first but once you do get ready to dance the night away!
Just got back from a stay in a Tower One Bedroom Suite. At check in I was told that they where going to put a $200 deposit on my credit card in case I "thrashed the room" and it "had a mini-bar." No where did it say that when I reserved the room or in the emails I received from them. I spoke with the manager and showed him what I had. He then just took an imprint of the card for $100.00. If you use a debit card they will charge you $300. The mini-bar consisted of a small refrigerator that was already stocked with expensive items. If I wanted to put anything in it I would have to take out items and then be charged a $50 restocking fee. Or I could rent one for $25 a day. The rooms do not have enough light in them. There is no light at all over the dining table. The lights in the bedroom are the same. And the light on the desk is just as dim. For the $25 a day resort fee you get only 512k speed in the wireless internet. If you want 1.5megs you have to pay $14.95 for 38 hours. I can get way faster speeds at home from a Days Inn and not be charged for it. Never did get the wired internet to work. My room was on the 8th floor (they where only 60% booked supposedly and where not cleaning higher floors according to check in) and I could hear the trash trucks, deliveries, etc at all hours of the night. There was even a light switch near the door that worked nothing at all. And sockets covered up all over the room. And to raise and lower the shade and black out shade (it is called a curtain in the room description on the website) you have to walk across a dark room to find it. No switch by the door to the bedroom from the main room. Just at the door to the hallway. The bed was comfortable tho. But it seems that they want you out of the room and spending money then relaxing. Just be prepared for all the fees, etc that they will charge you.
Great fresh food. Ate here 3 times during a recent conference. It became a favorite spot.
Outstanding staff, great atmosphere..
Good to go, great java!
Good sandwiches and burgers, worth a trip
Great food, a bit spendy, but overall great staff and tasty food!
Outstand pizza, excellent for a late night snack
Incredile experience all around. Made my wifes 50th one to remember!
Meal was absolutley delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitley go back next time i am in vegas.
Meal wasn't anything special, pasta was undercooked, and its way over priced. We arrived with high expectations, and left disappointed.
Saw Marc Savard first and was able to get $10 tickets to Nathan's show, second row. Thought the magic show was the best I've ever seen.
Great show. A lot of laughs.
Best pizza I have ever had by far. Service was equally awesome.
I highly recommend the Monte Carlo for your next trip. Is it a five star property? No. But this is a clean comfortable room. The service was great; I called for a special request and it was taken care of within the hour. I'll be back.
We spent four comp nights here and enjoyed it quite a bit. I was skeptical before going since it has the reputaion of catering to the 20 something set. But everyone from the desk clerk to restaraunt employees were exceptionally friendly to us. Of course around 10 pm, there is an influx of the club crowd, lot of young women dressed in hooker attire, and dudes in hip hop outfits. But few of them seemed to be staying in the hotel, and were no real annoyance. I assume the Palms makes a lot of money on bottle service since this club doesnt seem to gamble. As far as the casino, they have pretty good video poker games, you can find full pay if you look carefully. The slots seem to be much looser than those on the strip, and we enjoyed gambling here. The room was pleasant and clean. It was a Little large than most vegas rooms. Most notable thing was the view out of the floor to ceiling windows, great view of the strip, especially since we had a corner room facing the Rio. We will definitely stAy here again.
Wow, what a pleasant surprise. The food is great; the atmosphere is great; the service...meh. What a large variety. The Stromboli was very good. If you like pizza this is your place.
Trendy, loud, overpriced. Not my style at all.
I couldn't disagree more with last reviewer. Our meal was delicious, service impeccable and atmosphere perfect in every way. I think we got a lot for our money.
If you have a free or discounted coupon go, but it's a bit pricy for the quality and/or variety. I went for breakfast and they have the standard fare, waffles, omelette station, etc. I like that I can get my own coffee without having to wait for a server. Quite a bit crowded with tour group, but that was bad timing on my part rather than a knock on place.
If the service was not so bad...but you can say that just about every place in Vegas. The beer selection? Good, but not great, if you are a craft guy. If you are a macro brew guy the selection is great. My burger (Pub Burger) was very good (as good as those fancier burger trendy joints) and the onion rings were above average (as opposed to KGB). Fun atmosphere.
Had a wonderful time this past week staying at Planet Hollywood while attending a conference. We actually booked two rooms, one for ourselves and one for students attending the conference.
Check-in was smooth and easy and Harry was the gentleman that checked us in and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful and polite experience. When we checked out 5 days later he immediately remembered us as we approached the desk. He had helped us when we requested a specific view from our room and when we were checking out he asked if we enjoyed the views.
We could lay in our bed and watch the Bellagio Fountains.
Planet Hollywood is a great location and has the added benefit of having the Miracle Mall attached. It was especially great when we had students with us who could run down to the various stores to get things. It's also easy to get to the monorail by walking next door to Paris and walking through Bally's to catch it to the convention center.
There are a lot of great restaurants available in Planet Hollywood and the mall. You always feel safe while in the casino and mall.
Even though it does seem to focus on attracting a younger crowd, it was still pleasant for us (and we are in our 50's).
I've stayed in several hotels along the strip and this was my second stay in Planet Hollywood and this is where I plan to stay when I come back.
The only negative I can think of is the carpet in the hallways is beginning to show wear and needs updating and the chairs in the rooms need to be replaced. However everything else was great and clean. We had a large room (about 550 sq. ft.) with two vanities in the bathroom and separate large bath tub and large shower. As I said earlier the room was wonderful with a strip view and we enjoyed being able to lay in bed and watch the fountains.
Everyone we encountered that worked there was polite and helpful. And Harry was absolutely wonderful at check-in which just started our Las Vegas experience off on a great note!!!
I have to admit I not a fan of the "burger craze". That said, my hamburger did not disappoint. I dined on the "spicy" burger and it lives up to its name. Whew. I 'upgraded' to the onion rings; big mistake. Terrible. The service was friendly, though slow. If I want a hamburger, this is a great option. Just avoid the rings.
In an area of sub-par Mexican food, GyG stands out. The tortilla soup was the highlight; almost worth it right there. The rest of the meal was good, not great, but good. The service was very friendly, though slow. I'd go back.
