CarneVino Italian Steakhouse - Palazzo Hotel Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I shared the grilled octopus, squash blossoms, a 14 oz ribeye, along with sides of mushrooms and beets. Everything was delicious. The octopus and ribeye were cooked perfectly. They cut the steak for us at the table; a neat presentation.
We enjoyed our meal, but it came at a hefty price tag. Their were no affordable wine options on the menu.
It was an experience, but I suspect we could have enjoyed a romantic steak dinner elsewhere in Vegas just as much for half the price.

This steakhouse was recommended by our Uber driver and I can't rave enough about the steak. Our driver insisted we split the rib eye steak and we are SO happy we followed his advice. It is carved tableside, with each cut described and carefully laid out for you. Juiciest, most amazing steak I have ever had! (And I am a foodie!) Pricey, but worth every penny! Do not skip this place on your Vegas visit!

What a disappointment! I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant, but the take away was less than memorable. We started out by being greeted by a lovely hostess. The decor is fun, casual and interesting. The acoustics were not great. The acid rock music was playing really loud and I could barely hear my husband speak. The waiter did not make a good impression. He was on auto pilot, running through a prepared diatribe of his favorite dishes and not answering my specific questions regarding the preparation of a few dishes. I speak Italian fluently and lived there for five years. I travel back to Italy often. The waiter was condescending when I asked questions, which really upset me. The waiter began "schooling" me on the pasta dishes, explaining what a primo piatto is (first plate). He told us that the pasta came in a portion the size of a bread dish and that this is the size of a first plate in Italy - NOT TRUE! He said it was a very small portion, but really flavorful. I have eaten at the finest restaurants in the world and have never seen a waiter try to upsell patrons in this manner. I have never paid $31 for an appetizer portion of pasta. I ordered the seafood pasta, but was not impressed. The pasta was undercooked (not al dente) and quasi crunchy. We had the filet mignon and the meat was delicious! They offer sauces at an extra cost. I ordered the porcini bernaise, which arrived cold and void of any porcini. We also ordered the caponata, which is one of my favorite sides. We received something with chopped eggplant and a ton of vinegar. This dish did not resemble caponata in any way. Whatever it was, it should have been sold as an appetizer, not a side dish. We overheard another patron ask if Mario Batali ever comes to the restaurant and the waiter responded that Mario shows up once a year for a charity golf tournament. Mario sold out and has no oversight on the place. The highlight was a friendly busboy named Steve.

A full dining experience was created for us! The service and food, beyond amazing! The wine list was very pricey, nothing less than $110 a bottle which makes it terribly expensive for a larger group. We would definitely return for the food and service!

The quality of the dishes was beyond reproach, but the wine prices are exorbitant, even for Vegas. Got sat right next to the high-traffic kitchen entrance _again_. This kind of peculiarity sticks with me when I'm spending this kind of money on a special occasion, even years apart. If this happens the next time, it'll sadly be the last time.
This is the best restaurant I have ever ...
This is the best restaurant I have ever been to in Las Vegas. Truly, a step above many other high-level restaurants I have experienced in Las Vegas. I recommend getting one of the sharable steaks (if you like your meat at the same temp) as it was amazing from first to last bite. The table side cutting of the steak was a treat for me as I like to know about the different part of the steak I am about to eat, especially since I am paying top dollar.
The side were great to share and accompanied the main dish perfectly.
The wine list was impressive. From moderate to expensive, you can easily find the right glass (or bottle for groups) of wine to pair with your food.
From the Bread and apps, to the final bite, CarneVino is the first dinner place I have been to in Las Vegas that I will 100% come back to.

Overpriced, I guess that's Vegas. I read the reviews about the aged beef, but it really wasn't anything special.
We had drinks at the bar then ate dinner(4) of us, each having one more drink, nothing extravagant , the total of the meal for 4 was..... $ 700.00
So.. Overall not a great value or special, disappointed :(
Also the speakers next to the table were so loud, had to ask them to turn them down to hear each other.

This was our second trip to Carnevino. We absolutely love this place. We make it a must on our Vegas trips. Their steak is bar none the best we have ever had. If you get lucky, and happen on a time when they have the Reserve in, get it. It is worth every penny and then some. Our favorite appetizer is off menu, the beef cheek ravioli, what made Chef Mario Batali famous, served with 10 year aged balsamic vinaigrette. YUM! The atmosphere is quiet and upscale and the decor is Italian Renaissance. The wine list covers everything from $50 a bottle up to $10k+, they have an on hand Sommelier to help find that perfect pairing for you! Absolutely recommend stopping by if you want a great experience coupled with an unforgettable meal.

It was horrible! The steak was cold and chewy. Any random cheap place will have a better steak. The beef cheeck ravioli had the meat liquidfied so when you cut into it the "beef cheeck" ran out of it and you were left eating the pasta. The vinaigrette was delicious but that's about it. The restaurant looks amazing. We wasted a ton of money on mediocre food you can eat at any spot. Only thing impressive was their wine list.

Amazing all the way around. The food and the drinks were out of this world and the service was without a flaw. We enjoyed the quiet ambiance and the knowledge of the staff. This was undoubtedly the bright spot and highlight of our trip!

I'm not afraid of cost, but although the food was above average, the cost was WAY overpriced for the quality and portions. They did their best to advertise (via the waitstaff 's presentation) but the cost of each item was not at all worth what was brought to the table. That being said, the service was outstanding and the food was good (though not quite outstanding).
Ridiculously overpriced. Steak priced p ...
Ridiculously overpriced. Steak priced per person instead of the normal way. Be careful although the waiter was quite good at pointing this out. We had the $158.00 (not a typo) ribeye which was enough for the 4 of us to share (not big eaters), but the steak was really quite average and certainly not worth the premium prices asked.
We started with pasta first course. Orecchiette was a split decision: I liked it and my wife didn't. We had the home made ravioli special which was average at best.
We won't be going back.

The food was fantastic. Please spend your money on the grilled octopus appetizer. OMG! Caprese salad, veal scallopini with lemon capers fantastic. Short rib was OK. I would love to see a braiesd lamb shank over polenta. Broccolini a little under done. Eggplant & fingerling potato delish. Coconut tart excellent. Tiramisu good but be open minded as it may be different from what you're used to. I could eat hear every time I visit Vegas.

Lee was an amazing waiter. He was extremely knowledgable, humorous, and entertaining. We had the braised short ribs and veal saltimbocca. Both amazing. And I highly, HIGHLY recommend the beef cheek ravioli; it melts in your mouth. Great experience overall!

Food was outstanding. However, I'd like to point out that it is my pet peeve that restaurants should have a reasonable wine list. While acknowledging that this is indeed vegas, the fact that the wine list has rarely a wine under $100 is silly. In fact, I think the prices generally start at $130 with a median price in the $200. I have a 3000+wine cellar at home with barolos and brunellos, and some californian reds. So not entirely a novice. I would suggest restaurants adopt a less snobbish approach to wine service. Having said that, the food was excellent.

From the Hostess to the Dessert we declined because there was simply no more room, everything was five stars. JZ and his team provided us an excellent dining experience from start to finish, attention to detail and listening carefully and answering with easy to understand for a non chef answers, it was memorable to say the least.
