Aureole - Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
So, this place has been on my list to try for a while and I will say it was just kind of "meh". We went for a business dinner, 8 in the party. The place is beautiful, the service was great, but the food, while it sounded great it was just ok. The rest of our group had mixed reviews, the steaks people had they said were great. Desserts looked great but just ok. I had beef cheeks ravioli for an app, it was good but not great. My entree was seafood risotto which was recommended by the waiter. I found it to be heavy and gummy with overcooked shellfish. It was disappointing that for the price it wasn't a WOW experience.
AMAZING service & hospitality by wait staff - and by Tim, especially! What a treat! HIGHLY recommend! The Chilean sea bass was the best I ever had - as well as the beef cheek ravioli! Fabulous wine list & the pairings as recommended in the menu are delightful!
All in all my experience here was okay. I requested a table away from the door and closer to the beautiful wine display, but unfortunately we were sat directly in front of a door in the corner but I decided to ignore it. Our waiter was ok, it took awhile to get my glass of wine which didn't bother me too much. I didn't like the entree because it tasted bland, but our waiter was nowhere to be found for me to alert him. When he finally did come back, he did not ask how the food was or maybe he didn't realize that I hardly touched my food so I just asked for the check so we could leave.
Very sad, because I was SO excited to eat here again..... I grew up waitressing and service was BAD!! We had a team, but only saw the one gal in the beginning, then never again, The gentleman that took over was so slow and barely checked on us. It was embarrassing when my customer found a big hair in the food and we never even got to tell the waiter, since he NEVER came back during the entrees. ALso, one meal was completely wrong, but by the time he came back...we were too tired to order the correct replacement meal. Again VERY disappointed...
They were not busy on a Friday night, which was surprising, considering what we've heard about it. So maybe they could have splurged a nicer table for two rather than sticking us under the stairs. Food and service were wonderful though - all that really matters!
The appetizers were a good size. Roasted beat salad was delicious. I would go back and have it again. Baby greens salad was fresh and crisp with several layers of flavor. Main dishes were large. Should have split. Risotto was perfectly cooked. Lamb medallion dish was nice but sausage a little overpowering.
Good, friendly service by Oscar and his co-server.
Enjoyed a special dinner with friends and really wanted to try their tasting menu, but one of our friends was unable to eat all the course offerings due to her diet restrictions and they were able to accommodate us by not requiring the entire table to get the tasting menu. Food was fabulous! The menu was the most eclectic and creative paring of fresh and seasonable ingredients, we left extremely satisfied and full! Great wine selection, and super cool vertical wine cellar which spans from floor to ceiling and "wine fairies" glide gracefully up on bungee cord-like apparatuses to get your selection, no matter the level. It was an all around superb experience from service, decor, ambiance, and definitely food. Would certainly come back the next time I'm in Vegas!
We tried the lasting menu with wine pairing and safe to say it truly matched our expectations the food and service was fantastic and I really felt it represented great value for money compared to a lot of the other high end restaurants on the strip. I would wholeheartedly recommend Aureole
I was excited to dine at Aureole based upon the reviews I had read. Our entire party was highly disappointed in the meal. Caesar salad was bland with romaine that was less than fresh. Salmon was not fresh, the portion was small, and the flavor was poor. Beet salad was minuscule (perhaps a quarter of a beet and a dollop of goat cheese). Tortellini was served in a small bowl and was fair at best. After spending $220 on a sub-par meal, we decided to pass on dessert and coffee. We give this restaurant a F for FAIL. We will not return. We were very disappointed.
The food at this restaurant was extremely good; however, be prepared to pay for quality over quantity. It was also difficult to find a lower priced wine, but the list was extensive and we found a great French wine to enjoy. The tower high wine cellar was really neat to look at, although they don't tell you when the "wine angel" is going in to get your wine. I think that would add a lot to the experience.
The food was not as impressive as the decor and actually was very disappointing. Lots of frying vegetables, and mayo sauces, a salad that was overdressed and had no flavor. I expected solid food but even their Lion dish was odd. A deep fried leaf? Go elsewhere unless you want to just watch the waitresses go up on the harnesses for the wine bottles. That was interesting but food stunk. Wine selection was excellent.
Restaurant has gone downhill since my last visit. Me u changed over and about 1/2 of the 9 dishes we ordered were good. The others were mediocre. Including their drinks. Chilean sea ads was not prepared well and not very flavorful. Risotto was overcooked and seafood was gummy. Octopus and beef carpaccio was great. Beef cheek raviolo was the best dish.
Fairly disappointing NYE experience:
- poor food quality including the Vegetarian tasting menu
- poor service, our tasting menu dishes were placed in front of us without explanations
- were sat in the back of the restaurant next to a table with children playing cards
- they had external photographers come to tables taking pictures and asking for money afterwards
Maybe we were spoiled by the 9 course tasting menu at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon the night before, but this was easily the worst meal of our trip. I'd say skip this one.
Food was great. Service was slow. Very slow. Slow to the point the chef added shaved truffle to my steak as an apology.
One of the most unique features of the restaurant is the vertical wine cellar that requires a wine angel to fly up and retrieve bottles. We were never given a wine list, only a list of suggested pairings by the glass. When wine is the central focal point of the restaurant a wine list should be given immediately. I know this is Las Vegas and all types are attracted, but not all of us are wine illiterate.
Food was decent although not what you'd expect for the price, we had much better dinners while in Vegas. Wine list is excellent and they have great selections by the glass. The host and most of the staff were great but the waiter was not attentive. My wife is gluten free and we kept asking him what could be served for her and he kept saying he would have to ask the chef but never to return. Had to ask other staff to track him down. The restaurant is a nice venue and the wine tower is cool.
None of the staff, from Front Desk Reception to waiter made guests feel welcome. Very cold, detached from guests and all missed the opportunity to inform guests of the experience they were about to Embark on. Sommelier was better than other staff, and the runners were friendlier than those with higher positions. Our waiter was not focused on what was being communicated, nor was response time adequate - had to repeat requests a few times. He brought the couple to one side of us the wrong bill. He was unable to swiftly resolve an issue with a menu item ordered, with the couple on the other side seated next to us. He was clearly disengaged and probably shouldn't have worked this shift.
For the high prices charged and the unique wine tower, this should have been a better dining experience.
Food was excellent. Wine was excellent. Will think twice before dining again at another restaurant by Charlie Palmer, as other dining experiences in his restaurants in other cities have been similar.
