Craftsteak - MGM Grand Ratings and Reviews
We ordered steak and several sides to share. It took over 30 min to be served and when $50 ribeye steak arrived it was so full of grizzly fat my husband couldn't even cut through it. Their response was would we like a less fatty steak like a strip ... uh no we want a decent ribeye. Waited another 20 min for new steak which was good but not great No compensation offered for what wound up being 50 min wait for food. There are a lot of better places to eat in Vegas!
Most underwhelming dinner I've ever had. Salads were ok, steak was dry and under seasoned, and sides especially the brussels we're so over cooked I physically could not eat them.
Was so excited for this dinner and was left very disappointed. Definitely won't be going back.
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find a "Top Chef" restaurant in the hotel we were staying in (MGM Grand) and made an early reservation before a show.
We had the Chefs Tasting "double r" menu and it was amazing. The service was outstanding and the food was likely some of the best we've ever had. So happy we splurged.
Perfect dining experience. Tricia was extremely attentive to our needs and offered an excellent choice of wine to compliment our entrees. The entire serving team anticipated our needs prior to having to request. Our steaks were one of the best we've had during our trip and prepared as requested. Expect making Craft Steak one of our "must" dining establishments on future trips. Tables are a little dark to easily read a menu unless you have lighting directly above you or your cell available. We were warned there was a large party behind us but thankfully the sound didn't carry too far so we were not bothered by it. Very enjoyable evening out and looking forward to the next time
We loved the service and food at Craftsteak. The atmosphere was cozy and quiet. The braised short ribs were so tender, you could eat them with a spoon. We shared our sides, because the portions were huge. Our drinks were excellent. We will definitely eat here again on our next trip.
If you are a true steak connoisseur avoid this place. Long horn is better. It seemed very touristy and the staff was lazy. We had two waiters but barely saw them. Our main waiter was having a casual conversation with the manager for 10 minutes....almost hitting on her. We never heard from him between the food delivery and the. Bill. Scallops were cold and steak ok. The water/bread waiter was awesome and saw her 5 times for then our two waiters.
We decided to come here and see if Tom's restaurant lives up to his reputation as top chef head judge. He didn't disappoint! We decided to go for gold and get the A5 Japanese Wagyu meal for two. The Frisee salad was amazing! It tasted like salad carbornara; rich, eggy, with just the right amount of bleu cheese and bacon. The filet mignon and new york strip were an experience like no other. They literally melt in your mouth! The assorted mushrooms were also amazing. We learned about a new mushroom, hen of the woods, that paired perfectly with the steak. Finally, all the desserts were amazing. Even though I'm not a huge fan of bread pudding, I couldn't stop eating the brioche bread pudding with apple pie ice cream. I have to say something about the level of service. They found the perfect balance of servicing us but not being intrusive. Everyone was personable and courteous. It's clear they all love working there and they did their best to make sure we felt right at home. It was fairly quiet in our booth; perfect for a romantic meal. If you're looking for a once in a lifetime steak experience, I highly recommend coming here!
We went here to celebrate my birthday and I could not have had a better experience. The staff is very professional and helped us pick out a great meal. They are very knowledgeable and know how to pair foods and drinks. The chef is amazing and the food is a must try at least once in your life. I can't wait to go back and experience the food here again.
Loved the atmosphere in the restaurant very much. Service was spectacular. Steaks were great as was the vegetarian platter they created for one of our party. Liked the Parker House rolls but they could have been lighter. Pastry crust for bittersweet chocolate tart was poor and verged on unprofessional (too thick, not enough butter, not at all light or flaky and tasted like a hard biscuit) which let down a beautiful chocolate filling (not too sweet) and coffee ice cream.
We came here on advice of a client. This was the 3rd out of 4 comparable find dining restaurants we visited during our week stay in Las Vegas. All the restaurants were great, but Craftsteak stood out among the crowd. Every course, every bite, and every drink was perfect. We also enjoyed the spacious room, comfortable booth, and generally quiet atmosphere. Our service was impeccable. We never wanted for anything but we never felt like we were being interrupted.
Was here for a business meal with six colleagues - so a party of seven. We looked forward to a good meal at the end of a long working day - and while the steak itself was great, the remainder of the experience was surreal, at best.
Start the evening with some of the quirkiest service I have ever encountered - add to that a constant - embarrassingly aggressive 'up-sell' on every part of our order - not to forget the wine-cellar conveniently 'out' of most bottles less than $200... then the unforgettable high volume Black Sabbath play list and cap it off with, yep... them trying to sign us up for an MGM rewards cards before we paid for our meal.
Only in a hotel, where repeat customers are not needed, could you possibly experience this kind of carnival. The entire experience made for humorous fodder during the rest of the trip.
Never having been to this iconic restaurant I was looking forward to the experience. We were celebrating the life of my husband who had passed away. As we were seated, we were greeted, drink orders taken, all was going along great. As we ordered our meal, we requested separate checks, and that's when things went down hill. Clearly annoyed, the wait staff began to ignore us, we only received one additional round of drinks after that, never checked on if our meals were good, no manager stopped by the table. The food was very good, but the service was incredibly disappointing. With all the 5 star restaurant choices in Vegas, not sure I would be back to this one. :-(
This restaurant remains my favorite in Las Vegas. The service is exemplary, the wine list is extensive and brilliantly curated (their sommelier, Troy, has obviously spent his time and the restaurant's money very wisely), and their menu is excellent (though the steak tartare remains my very favorite dish). Highest possible recommendation!
The service and attention to detail is above and beyond at Craftsteak. Two of us ordered the rib-eye. They came perfectly cooked but did not have the marbling and flavor you would expect with the cost of the meat. Part of this may be due to the dry-aging The Lobster Bisque soup is the best and the sides were delicious.
Be Prepared to Spend!! One of the most expensive steakhouses I have been to. However, the service was amazing, the steak one of the best and the sides were large enough to feed four hungry guests. Great wine list but again, priced on the high end. However, this is LV and a casino eatery. With two of us, two glasses of wine and dinner $300.00. We did NOT get the $260 10 oz steak!!
I was so excited to visit Craftsteak because I am a fan of Tom Colicchio, but I left feeling disappointed. First, our bread was cold and reminded us of King's Hawaiian rolls. We were expecting a little more from a restaurant like this. My husband had a great grilled strip steak, but my roasted t-bone had little to no flavor. It was almost as if they forgot to season it. The manager came over and was very nice in removing it from our bill, but I hated feeling disappointed. The arugula salad was great, as well as our sides. The restaurant is worth a shot.
Amazing steaks and outstanding service. The waiter was super helpful and friendly. The entire staff was incredibly attentive. It's a 5-star price but with 5-star taste and service. Not something you do regularly, but I try to make a visit any time I travel to Vegas.
The food and service were wonderful at Craftsteak. My husband and I enjoyed every bite of our food and left way too full. Our main complaint was the music - classic rock music was playing much louder than I have ever experienced in a high end steakhouse (even for Vegas).
Tried Craftsteak for my sister's birthday (7:30 p.m. on a Monday night) since she's a big Tom Colicchio fan. After reading the reviews, I thought the food and service would be amazing, but we did not have the same experience as others. Service started off good, but then became terrible, steaks were sub-par. At around $600 for 2 people, this was not the experience we were hoping for. I would not recommend taking clients here, unless you want that awkward situation when you're hosting a meal with terrible service and everyone looks to you to see how you're going to handle it.
We had two servers assigned to us, both were attentive and helpful initially, but then we barely saw them the rest of the meal. First course we had the spinach salad, warm frisee, proscuitto, and shrimp. This was the highlight of the meal. That's when things started to take a turn for the worst. At one point our wine had been empty for so long the Italian folks at the table next to us started asking if we would like to share their wine. I had to go to the bar to get us more drinks. When the ribeye, filet mignon and lobster came for the next course, the lobster was fine, but both steaks were sub-par. The cut of the filet was especially underwhelming (and keep in mind we had everything cooked according to the chef's recommendation as well). We were done with our meal for about 20-30 minutes before anyone offered to take our plates. And after that, another 10-15 minutes to be offered dessert. Chocolate tort, sorbet, and bread pudding for dessert, with the sorbet being the best.
I'm from Minneapolis, so by way of comparison, the high-end steak places there (Manny's, Burch Steak, etc.) are all much better quality and service, and half the price.
It's a shame, because we really wanted to like this place.
I have watched Tom Collichio on TV for years and always wanted to try this restaurant. I finally got the chance and it was incredible. Extremely attentive staff, great atmosphere, and a lot of food choices. The food was absolutely amazing. The portions were huge. There is no way a person can eat all of the food that is served. I found this great because all too often celebrity chefs serve small and expensive portions. Although this was by far the most expensive meal I have ever had, the was no end to the food. We could not finish everything and were completely stuffed.
I can't wait to go back and experience it again.
We had wonderful service but our table was in bar area and too noisy. We asked to move our table being many table empty and they could only offer a little table in corner. For the price of the meal they should b more aware of seating people in bar area if not requested.
The restaurant and staff were amazing from the beginning. We have filet, ribeye, mushrooms, potato purée and absolutely wonderful scallops!! The sommelier was wonderful and recommended an excellent and surprisingly affordable petit Syrah. I would recommend for business or romance.
