Aureole - Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews

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.

We went to this restaurant because they had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner special. The food was delicious; however, my plate had one small nibble of turkey on it. When I looked at the woman sitting at the next table, she had two large slices of turkey on her plate. So, the inequity of portions was very disappointing. I don't plan on going back.

We had a wonderful dinner at Aureole! The service was fantastic and the food was very tasty. We had the three course tastings dinner and we were not disappointed. Our waiter was very knowledgable and attentive. Great Place! I highly recommend it.

I booked an early dinner reservation for 10. Our crew was a little late getting there, but the restaurant was patient and sent us to the bar to wait. Bar Service was painfully slow, even though we were the only ones at the bar and there were 3 servers behind it (and it's a small bar). Not sure what the deal was there... Dinner service was much better and more attentive. Very professional without being pushy. Had a great meal and time. Wish the Seafood Tower was a little more meaty. The clams and oysters were of the miniature variety. Meals were all cooked to satisfaction. They're not huge, which is OK by me, as Vegas portions tend to be exorbitant, like the cost!! I just love Aureole - be it for a professional business for many or a romantic dinner for 2 in the cozy booths. A great experience~!

Where to start? 15 minute wait for the server to come to my table just to take a drink order. Another wait for them to take my order. I felt like I was ignored the entire time I was there because I was a table of 8, 12, or 15.
When my meal arrive it was not correct and the server didn't even stay whilst I cut into the meat to make sure that my meal was cooked correctly. In fact, he didn't return for almost an hour. It was the toughest piece of meat I've ever eaten.
The best thing was dessert and my drink. The worst thing, other than my entree, was the TWENTY-FIVE MINUTE wait for my check.

I was excited to "Go Back" for a wonderful meal. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. We specifically told the server that we had 7pm tickets and needed to time the dinner appropriately. Let's just say we were late to the event. I ordered the Filet medium, it came out completely well done and very dry. We didn't have time to reorder so we just dealt with it.
I won't be back.

My sister and her husband came to visit me in Las Vegas. She perused all the restaurants' tasting menus before deciding on Aureole. We all went with the tasting menu. Her husband and I went with the wine pairing and the duck breast. My sister chose the lamb. Every course was amazing, the wine pairing was truly varied and introduced me to different flavors than I'd had in the past. Aureole's visual centerpiece is the wine tower, so we were entertained watching the wine angel ascend and descend.
The experience was outstanding and was truly a highlight of their trip.

We were very excited to see the wine tower with the wine angles. With the way the room is set up you cannot see anything. We were also very disappointed in the size of the appetizers, very small portions that are very pricey. The wait staff didn't seem to be very happy that we did not order dinner. The table was quickly cleaned off before we were even finished with our appetizers and wine.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon albeit short and sweet. Aureole was the perfect setting for us. We love the menu, and quietness to the setting. We were also lucky enough to watch one of the best lightening storms right from our table which only added to the great evening we had already been experiencing.

Was here years ago for date night and Aureole was the perfect restaurant with impeccable service. Came back as a family for an early dinner. Now dated, service was conscientious but lacking, food was just ok. Liked the special prix fixe menu which even allowed some substitutions and variations which was a nice surprise.

Every trip to Aureole, be it NYC or Las Vegas is always a memorable time. We always have fun with the staff, and the service is spot on. The food is all about balance and detail. The wine pairings were excellent!
A big thank you to everyone involved in our last visit. You all are the very best.

Don't waste your time or money folks. Food is ok...ambience is a bit dated, but not for the prices. This is a 2 star restaurant with 5 star pricing. Yeah, the wine delivery gizmo is kinda cool, but so what. There are better choices out there.

I found the food to be excellent, the service was very good and friendly but a little bit relaxed
The Decour was large and impressive however in looking at details the overhead lights were dirty taking away from the overall impression

Marring what otherwise would have been a very positive visit, one of our four entrees was undercooked. The chicken breast was fine around the edges, but by the time they reached the thick center of the breast, it was pink, inedible and unsafe for consumption.
The waitstaff couldn't have been more accommodating. If this happened at Chili's, I would say "Well, what did you expect?" However, at these prices, with this reputation and with this level of competition for gourmet dining, you are certainly entitled to expect a little more attention to detail from the kitchen staff.

We ordered from the prix fixe menu - Caesar salad, filet and creme brûlée. The steak was cooked perfectly, the potatoes were like cream, and the creme brûlée was one of the best I've ever had. And the wine selection was spectacular. A very enjoyable meal for a great price in a lovely restaurant. I will definitely go back.

I felt the menu was limited. Only one steak, one fish dish, one chicken entree and one duck entree to choose from. I wanted lobster, but there was none. I also thought some items were overpriced. I order seared foie gras everywhere. It's usually in the $25 range. Aureole charges $34.

This used to be a great restaurant... the ambiance and the look is still great but the horrible service is only second to the terrible food... I have no idea what happened to what used to be a Five Star experience. We had a nightmare server who got six of seven orders wrong and even tried to get one of my guests at a business dinner to eat a steak she did not order when he got her salmon order wrong... then he tried to please us by bringing extra desserts after we finished the desserts we ordered!... what? I will give the manager a pat on the back for trying to make it all Ok but he also fell far short. This used to be a favorite of mine but I would not go back or recommend it at all now... I hope they get it all back together... what a disappointment they are right now.

This restaurant is a shadow of its former self and should be avoided as there are much better places to spend your dining dollar in Las Vegas. Our first issue was the screaming crying infants in the place when we were seated. Really? At Aureole? Fortunately they left shortly after we were seated, but I soon could appreciate the unhappiness. The waiter spilled my water all over the table. While that happens, at least make more than a half hearted attempt to clean it up. The menu is very different than what is presented on the Open Table site. How much effort does it take to update that? The menu is pedestrian at best now. One of my companions asked for ginger ale. Eventually it came, but he was never asked if he wanted a refill. No one could say they were too busy as the place was 90% empty at 7:30 on a Thursday night. We had the summer seasonal special. It was a boring Caesar salad, with a mediocre filet mignon, and what tasted like frozen potatoes and vegetables. Really? At Aureiole? The dessert was decent, but overall a very, very disappointing experience.

There were three of us. Two meals were great but my wife's filet mignon was well done. The waiter was apologetic and offered to replace it but that would have meant waiting another 13 to 15 minutes. My wife decided to try getting through it but did not finish. Extremely disappointing from such a high end restaurant. It also did not help that we saw what looked like the chef or sous chef leaving with a young woman and laughing. It seemed like he did not care. There way of making it up to us was to put an extra dessert on the table which we could not eat.
