Lavo Ratings and Reviews

Food was good. Service was poor! One waiter was working half the Reataurant. We were seated, not given bread (saw others who sat after us get it sooner) got apps and dinner in record setting time under 1 hour. For the prices I would hope for better dinning experience. What we got was a fast food service at a high price point.

As to refrain from wordiness, I will withhold my thesis by using three words (three letters each) to describe my dining experience at Lavo:
Side note: Eric was a sophisticated blast who served the heck out of us.

The food was just okay. We had the eggplant parm as an appetizer. It was tasty but a little dry. I ordered the chicken parm for dinner. The portion was very large. It does not come with sides so I ordered a side of penne. The complimentary garlic bread was probably my favorite.

The server made the difference on this visit to Lavo. We had the Bolognese pasta and Margarita flatbread. The sauce on the pizza was excellent. The doneness of the cheese was spot on. The pasta was not as impressive if not the worst Bolognese dish we have had. The pasta tasted more like gnocchi, (Like a soft dumpling) instead of pasta. The sauce was very plain. Not much taste. It was the friendliness and down to earth server that we enjoyed.

Fantastic atmosphere, fantastic food, fantastic service! We were so full we couldn't have dessert but we weren't quite finished. Our waiter came up with a creamy espresso martini that was so delicious, we all loved it! Thanks so much

The food was divine, we tried several courses and I was impressed by each and every plate. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. We sat on the terrace outside and it was lovely. Great view, fantastic ambiance both inside and out. This place creates a perfect, warm and stunning fine-dining experience.

Excellent food ... Famous Meatball was beyond amazing and we are from NYC !
Everything was so wonderful we are going back again for our last dinner in Vegas !
Having their shrimp lobster salad and meatball again ! Portions were big enough that my husband and I shared everything .

We went to diner at Lavo for a bachelorette party. We heard so many great things about this restaurant and how it was perfect for a bach party. We are from New Orleans and had made a reservation. When we got to the restaurant we informed the hostess again that we were here for a bachelorette party. The hostess was nothing but rude and responded "Yes we are aware already". We were then seated and the waitress started off great. After we ordered we hardly heard or saw of her again. We were hardly attended to from then on. We were never asked if we would like to order another round of drinks and we also asked if she could take a picture which was never done. 4 of us out of the 7 ordered steaks which came out burnt and over cooked. The creamed spinach was not good either. But we still just tried to have a good experience. Nothing was ever acknowledged about it being a bachelorette. Everyone who recommended the restaurant informed us that it was very lively and people danced on tables and spanked the brides. We were looking forward to this dinner more than anything and were sadly dissapointed. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. It turned out to be the least liked restaurant out of all the ones we ate at and we were very dissapointed. Even the bride was dissapointed in the food and the overall experience.

We were seated at a long bench seat with a table crowded next to others on both sides. There was no intimacy or privacy at all and the table was very small. The steak was only okay. The asparagus was very large with no flavor and the spinach had no flavor whatsoever. The wine must have been marked up 8X and was $82 for a $10 bottle of wine. This was about $250 to eat there. Very dissapointed and will never go back. I have already spread the word about the poor experience to friends and family.

FANTASTIC! It was the second time we have been there in the past 6 months (last time in Vegas and this past/recent trip) .... Great choices and everything had its own unique and wonderful flavor!! OUR FAVORITE ITALIAN RESTAURANT , from Chicago to New York to Las Vegad!

This visit was to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday. We have been to Lavo on countless other occasions but this time they went above and beyond with the overall dinner. I worked with an Asst. GM to arrange for a birthday cake and presentation. The food was outstanding as usual.

Service here was awesome. Very attentive and prompt. The overall atmosphere was nice too.
The food was okay. The famed meatball was good, but not as outstanding as the meatball at RPM Italian in Chicago. Chicken and potatoes were dry. Crusted salmon was the best thing we ordered. Keep in mind that portion sizes are huge!
Overall, I would return for cocktails but would save my money and dine somewhere else.

My daughter and I dined at Lavo while at a dance convention in Vegas. We went to celebrate her college admission. The staff were friendly and very efficient. The ambiance was lovely. The calamari was awesome. My pasta was quite a bit under done, but on the whole everything was terrific!

I read the reviews for Lavo before going and they did not disappoint. The food was delicious. We got the fried calamari which was fresh and tasted great. The seafood linguini was really good and so was the tuna . Service was extremely good . Perfect for a special dinner. It was not cheap but, was worth it.

My wife, family, friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The food was amazing as well as the service. My only complaint is that it was recommended we go to Tao afterwards. After arriving there we soon learned the service there was amateur. The people working at the entrance were extremely rude and ghetto.

As usual Lavo does not just meet my expectations but it-exceeds them!
When I'm in Vegas which is twice yearly I always make a point of visiting Lavo, I am on a 7 night stay at the Palazzo and me and my family have eaten there four nights out of the seven .
The service and food is always of a high quality and the staff always make you feel really welcome, a really well managed and slick restuarant , to me it's the only place to dine in Las Vegas.

Ahmed, our server, was amazing! His recommendations were spot on for drinks, appetizers and dinner and he was very good in taking care of us for the evening. I would definitely return as the food, drinks and service were great! Next time in Vegas I will return and ask to be seated with Ahmed!

There are so many great restaurants in Vegas, Lavo is worth checking out. My wife and I dined at Lavo late in the evening after a show. We sat outside on the terrace over looking the strip which was very comfortable. The service was excellent, as was the food. We started off with the meatball appetizer, which turned out to be a pound of beef! Unfortunarley, it tasted so good that we had to eat the whole thing. Our main dishes were both very good and the portions were large.
I would highly recommend Lavo. We had a great meal, great service at a reasonable price.

Love the LAVO brunch while I am in Vegas. They have great bottomless mimosas and a fantastic selection of breakfast and lunch foods. The waitstaff is always funny and on top of things. I would definitely recommend going to LAVO for brunch.

I loved the ambience! It was dimly lit, the DJ was playing good music, and they were able to a comodate my gluten free needs. The food was out of this world and didn't bother me! (I'm even sensitive to some gluten free pastas but the pasta they used was okay on me) I'll definitely come back again if I ever have the chance to visit Vegas again!
