Craftsteak - MGM Grand Ratings and Reviews
We've been watching Top Chef for years so, this was a chance to try one of Tom's restaurants. And, we loved it. The wait staff (Bree and Cici) were charming and helpful and just the right amount of attentive!
They recommended sharing ... e.g. split the salad and the sides and the desert. And, they were right. The portion sizes are great for sharing. We had separate steaks but, we could have easily split the steak as well.
They have a very good selection of Single Malt Scotch! And the dram, neat was very nice.
I'm on a personal quest to try every Steakhouse in Las Vegas and I have to say that Craftsteak is now at the top of my list. The meal was simply amazing from start to finish. As I walked up and started chatting with the greeting staff I mentioned to them about my quest and they all looked at each other and said please stop by when you are done, we can't wait to hear your thoughts. Well I did and I have been raving about my meal ever since.
Ever since I started watching Top Chef on Bravo, I've been dying to try one of Tom Colicchio's restaurants, and even though I live in LA, I haven't had a chance to try the one closer to home. So, I was super excited to try Craftsteak with my friend. The service was impeccable. Our server gave us his recommendations on the menu and since it was our first time at the restaurant, he suggested we try the Chef's Beef Selection Tasting Menu. It was such a great value, and it allowed us to try smaller portions of several of their dishes.
We opted to try their Avocado salad, Italian Buffalo Mozzarella salad, Lobster Bisque Soup (it was only mediocre in my opinion), 1/2 dozen raw oysters- we had the kumamoto and miyagi oysters). For the sides, we ordered the mushroom assortment, fingerling potatoes, and potato puree. Everything tasted amazing.
For our main entree, I ordered the grilled Ribeye medium rare, and my friend ordered the roasted New York Strip medium. Here is where everything went downhill unfortunately. The steak was TERRIBLE. I have eaten at a lot of steakhouses, and eaten a lot of steaks in my lifetime. This is by far one of the WORST steaks I've had at a fine dining restaurant. First of all, instead of bringing out a roasted New York Strip, a grilled New York Strip steak came out. My friend opted not to return the dish because she didn't want to waste food. The steak came out on a hot dish, sliced off the bone and covered in I believe a bourguignonne sauce. It looked beautiful, but the steaks were SO TOUGH and tasted so bland. When I looked at a slice of the steak, it had no marbling and no fat whatsoever. The sauce didn't taste particularly good, and the server never mentioned that the steak even came with a sauce drizzled on top of it.
It was so unfortunate that everything BUT the steak was delicious, considering it's a steakhouse. Would not recommend for steak and won't be going again.
The restaurant-very nice. The food-excellent. Ambiance? Crap. The music may be "energetic", but it's no place for either a business or intimate conversation. They played the same loud music in the restaurant that was playing on the casino floor. We were there to celebrate our anniversary, not table dance. WAY TOO LOUD!!! If you're going to charge those prices, the entire experience should be worth it. Sorry, Craftsteak, but we won't be back.
We just ate at Craftsteak last week, and had a very nice evening. We tried the seasonal avocado salad with pickled onions which was amazing. My wife, daughter, and I split the T-bone which was perfectly cooked. We also had the potato puree which was too runny for our liking - this was obviously the restaurant's version of mashed potatoes. We also had the green beans which were good. Overall, though, the food could have been hotter. For dessert we had the bread pudding which really was bland - definitely nothing special. As is typical for all Vegas higher end restaurants, the wine is at least 3X the retail price, if not higher, which really just feels like you're getting taken advantage of.
Yum & Fun! The best meal we've ever eaten. Service was excellent as well; professional yet relatable. Although on the higher end price wise, we knew this when we booked our reservation and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend the Wagyu Tasting. It gives you a great variety and plentiful portions.
Had the dry aged bone-in ribeye. I was expecting it to melt in my mouth at first bite, but it did not. Maybe I should have gone with one of the Wagu options, but when I saw the dry aged ribeye, I thought I didn't need to go the Wagu route for a really tender steak. Don't get me wrong, the steak was ok, but I was expecting fantastic and it did not deliver. I was very surprised how much resistance there was eating the steak. I was expecting the steak to be as good as Peter Lugers, but it wasn't even close. Would have given it 2 1/2 stars, but couldn't. So, I rounded up to give the benefit of the doubt. If I ever do go again, I am definitely going for a Wagu option.
The steaks weren't as good as first time here. I really wanted a T-bone but was rather forcefully talked out of it by the waiter. I should have insisted! The food nor the wait staff were as good this time. And for 3 people and a six hundred dollar meal, i better be wowed. I wasn't!
Can't visit Vegas without a stop at Craftsteak for some steak tartare, among other things. Melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu filet mignon, pureed potatoes, even the asparagus and frissee salad were fantastic. No hit-or-miss here, it's all good with great, attentive, knowledgable service.
Beautiful atmosphere, delectable food, and phenomenal service. Craftsteak did not disappoint. My husband and I settled on the Chef's Selection - Double R Surf and Turf, which was 3 courses comprised of 4-6 plates. Every plate was amazing, we wanted to eat everything, but I don't think it was humanly possible! We thoroughly enjoyed everything, and the monkey bread dessert ended the evening perfectly!!
The service is always impeccable - the sommeliers know their business and spend the time to pair the right wine for the meal - not just the most expensive one. The menu is excellent, and they go out of their way to make you feel like the most important table at the restaurant.
We're Las Vegas locals, so we have a lot more options and more time to choose where we want to eat. Generally, we stay away from the Strip because we can get great food for less money/hassle closer to home.
However, we were visiting the MGM Grand for a show, and I wanted to have a meal nearby. Craftsteak was fabulous. I expected the food to be great, but having great servers made it even better. They helped us decide how to order our meal to get the best experience, and it was more than enough food.
After the meal, the server said he could hold our leftovers while we went to the show, which was a pleasant surprise. The took all the food away and boxed it up, and it was ready to go when we returned.
It's a steakhouse on the Las Vegas Strip, so you can't be too money conscious and still be able to enjoy the meal. Be realistic and be prepared to spend quite a bit of money. You won't be disappointed if you go in knowing that.
They seated us in the bar area without asking if it was ok. Extremely noisy, drunk guests watching sports on tv. I was looking for a quiet dinner with my spouse. When you spend $250 in dinner for two people, you expect something nicer. We've been there before in the main dining room. Food and service is always top notch but the bar isn't a place for a date night.
We showed up exactly when our reservation was to be and were seated immediately, while being expedited past the line at the front end of the restaurant. Service was good throughout the entire night as we spent almost 2 hours in the restaurant and the food was great, with the exception of 1 dish who a member of our party didn't like the taste of the Wagyu he ordered. ordered 3 bottles of wine and starter cocktails and spent around $700 on 6 w/o tip.
Im very dissapointed with the manager.
My husband had a medical emergancy and had to leave by ambulance.
We did not get to enjoy our dinner. I would have thought for a restaurant of this high status the manager would have invited us back to enjoy another dinner since ours was ruined.
Service was great. The server was knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations. We ordered family style, which was our only mistake. The appetizers and salads were wonderful. The problem with family style steaks is that within minutes all the food was cold and some of the steak had a lot of gristle. The restaurant definitely offers quality steak, I would just recommend not doing family style. The desserts were amazing. I would recommend this restaurant.
Our food was very good and the wait staff was fantastic but we were a little put off by the photographer. After spending $250 on dinner we didn't need to be guilt tripped into spending $25 or $45 on printed photos that we didn't love and she did not take being told no well! She made us feel very awkward and made us leave one of the most expensive meals we've ever splurged on, on a sour note. It's an awkward outdated service that is really unnecessary....
We were very excited to eat at this restaurant, but became quickly disappointed when my husband's steak was cooked well done instead of medium. We received a quick apology from the wait staff and I ate alone as he waited for his steak to be redone. We had reservations and they seated us in the bar. It was so loud towards the end of our meal that we couldn't hear eachother. We will not return.
