"Service was slow. Our waiter only came by twice. Once to take the order and second to bring the check. Someone else brought our food. We had to flag down service to have water refilled. The cucumber parfait as an amuse bouche was nice and refreshing. The french onion soup was too salty. The eggs benedict was good with the chorizo. The shirred eggs and lobster topped with caviar was a great entree for brunch."

Featuring the dynamic pairing of master sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck, Katsuya by Starck in Las Vegas is truly a feast for the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls, and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors for the American palate. The superb talent and exacting precision of Katsuya by Starck is changing the face of Japanese cuisine. The Japanese kanji symbol “Katsu” means “victory,” and it is fitting considering the loyal following of Hollywood A-listers and critics the restaurant has won over.

"The service from the hostess to the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. The tasting menu had a good assortment of sushi, cold and hot dishes. We also ordered a couple of items off the menu. The lobster dynamite was very good. You get half a lobster and the creamy mushroom sauce was good. The A4 wagyu fried rice was like butter. Very delicious and big portion to share with another. The creamy shrimp had a little kick that was good. The spicy tuna with the crispy rice was a nice blend of crispiness and fresh sushi. The miso black cod was another dish that melted like butter, no need to use a knife, nice, soft, full of flavor."

Acclaimed Chef Michael Mina breaks new ground with the debut of STRIPSTEAK at Mandalay Bay, his first steakhouse. With its classic menu, inviting bar scene and sophisticated atmosphere, STRIPSTEAK plays host to guests looking for the perfect filet in a modern alternative to the traditional steakhouse setting. As with Mina's other restaurants, STRIPSTEAK uses only the highest quality ingredients - corn-fed, all-natural meat; line-caught seafood and fresh, seasonal produce.<br /><p><br />STRIPSTEAK features a menu rife with imaginative interpretations of classic steakhouse favorites using state-of-the-art kitchen equipment. STRIPSTEAK offers a variety of beef options, including Certified Angus Beef and American Wagyu beef and is home to two wood-burning grills and six circulating, slow-poaching chambers. The signature slow-poaching method enhances flavor and tenderness by heating the meat at a low temperature, while the mesquite-smoked grills infuse cuts with a subtle smokiness.

"The heirloom tomatoes with crispy guanciale and basil puree was a very good appetizer. The main lobster fritters and the instant bacon (pork belly) was delicious. The stripsteak and lobster claw was a good surf & turf combo. The stripsteak had lots of flavor and is on the fattier side, which I like. The strawberry shortcake had a unique twist with pop rocks candy. The mascarpone cheesecake was not too dense and refreshing."

Hussong's Cantina & Taqueria opened in 1892 in Ensenada Mexico. Hussong's invented the Margarita in 1941 by bartender Don Carlos Orozco. The name Hussong's has attached itself to chili cook-offs, tee-shirts, bumper stickers, beer, wine and tequila. Laugh and sing along with the rock 'n' roll mariachi bands or enjoy an Original Margarita. Whenever you visit Hussong's you perpetuate the legend.

"Our waiter was very pleasant, friendly, helpful and attentive. The crab bisque was very rich and flavorful. The lump blue crab salad with avocado was delicious and had a huge mound of lump crab on top."

"Service was poor. The waiter was hard to get a hold of. Another waiter had to help us. We were there for the 3 course restaurant week. The food between each course took long to come out. The seabass with risotto was average. The cookie butter creme brulee was a bit too sweet."

"Service is always excellent at Lawry's. The spinning salad is always a refreshing start to the meal. The ends of the prime rib crust was a bit too salty. The lobster tail was flavorful. The creme brulee was big enough for 2 to share."

"The mini lobster tacos were very delicious with the avocado puree. The beef stroganoff was a nice twist to the classic dish. The braised short ribs for the beef stroganoff was very tender and flavorful. The chicken Kiev was crusted with Lay's potato chips, a very interesting dish. The chicken was a little dry, but the flavor was good. The bacon brussels sprouts with the chicken kiev was excellent. The toffee bread pudding with captain crunch cereal and salted caramel was a good way to end the meal."

"Service was a bit slow during Sunday brunch hours. The fried chicken sandwich was not as good as their Sunday fried chicken dinner. The crab cake benedict was good but had too much hollandaise sauce."

Home of the Wet Woody ® and storybook sunsets, Riva Grill is Tahoe South’s premier lake front restaurant located in the Ski Run Marina. The 3,000 square foot deck overlooking Lake Tahoe comfortably seats 200 guests and is a dining experience that is second to none. Floor to ceiling windows in the two-story restaurant provide an equally epic view of the Sierras and Lake. Since 1998, visitors and locals alike have flocked to Riva for the best food and service in town. Try the bacon-wrapped filet and scampi with Point Reyes Bleu Cheese butter, the renown grilled or blackened fish tacos with apple-jicama slaw and micro cilantro or any of their home made wood fired pizzas, to name just a few. Additionally, a visit to Riva Grill would not be complete without trying their world famous Wet Woody ® signature cocktail. With over two million sold, the rum and fruit juice blended drink will leave you with cold hands and a warm heart and certainly wanting one more. <br /><br />

"Nice view of the lake. Service was slow in the beginning. The dungeness crab salad had too much dressing and the bread was too greasy. The fries were good. The prime rib sandwich was cooked perfectly and delicious."
