CarneVino Italian Steakhouse - Palazzo Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Ate here tonight and had high hopes upon entry. Beautiful interior and great atmosphere. Had the Pork Osso Bucco and Spaghetti Ai Frutti Di Mare. Plates came out quick and food was correct temperature but just wasn't what we expected out of such a wonderful feeling restaurant. It was "tasty" bland at best which is SOOOO not how authentic Italian food is supposed to taste. Two of the Muscles in the Spaghetti were definitely BAD -spoiled- and appetite was gone after having that taste in the mouth. Nothing was done or said after letting a waiter know about the bad muscles. (Awkward)
It's expected that you order an appetizer, pasta, meat dish and a side but I am a big guy and would not have been able to eat that much food with having eaten a spoiled muscle. Grab an appetizer and either a meat or a pasta with a side. Will be plenty. We won't go back, but it may be worth it for your experience.
Very sad with the experience.
My experience at CarneVino was absolutely awesome. The ambiance is outstanding as well as the service. The food was spectacular. We started with the lamb sausage and chopped salad. Both were delicious and perfectly portioned. Our entrees consisted of the beef cheek ravioli - delicious - and the spaghetti seafood dish - wonderful. We ended the night with the tiramisu and peanut butter dessert. Both desserts were mouth watering delicious. Not only was the food delicious but the staff worked their butts off and looked liked they were having a blast doing it. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Excellent food and service. The gnocchi were amazing. The filet mignon was expertly cooked with a nice "crust". The only surprise was the music playing which is non-traditional for most steak restaurants. It was a single level too loud, but not enough to mar the experience.
The food was EXCELLENT....we had the bone in rib-eye cooked to perfections (medium rare).
Service a bit slow, but acceptable. The cost of wine was extremely high ($20-30 a glass); This was a very expensive meal over $300 for two people; 3 glasses of wine, salad, entree of rib-eye and one pasta dish.... We would return to this restaurant for a special occasion because the steak was tender and seasoned well.,
It's Mario Batali so obviously the food was good. I'm willing to spend money on good food but it just felt like it was way overpriced. A majority of the wine by the bottle selection was over 1k. We had a date at J Alexanders a month ago and had an amazing meal with a whole bottle of wine for $150 including 20% tip... I dropped $400 at CarneVino and was disappointed. I'd only go back for lunch or the pre-theatre menu.
Mario and amazing food are synonymous. 3rd place I have eaten of his. Babbo (NYC), Pizzeria Moza (LA), and here. I want to go to more of his! Staff is always well trained and great service. I know a lot of his places are co-owned, but the concept of great food will never change. I did the tasting menu, which wasn't brought up right away, but was so happy I got it. Pricey, but the flavors when matched with a few wine options are great. Prices for wine are expensive as well, but paired well with the food. Highlights, Carpaccio, Bone Marrow, fresh made pork ravioli, aged NY steak that is cut table side, and the chocolate bacon cake. Add the fresh bread and 2 butters to start. Nice place and gave some suggestions to even get better, as foodie layperson.
Dry Aged Bone-in Ribeye: enough said! Please make sure you eat the meat off the bone, because the meat is absolutely so flavorful that it makes your taste buds dance! The amount is more than enough for two people, and would easily feed 3.....maybe 4 lighter appetites.
Terrible quality experienced by everyone of us at the table. New York strip was sent back in Lou of skirt steak. Gnocchi was overcooked. The sides were average at best. Would never go back. They advertised aged steak and did not deliver. General manager needs to rethink what they serve to the public.
We had the octopus appetizer which was incredible. Meals included short ribs and the pork chop with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was even better. It came highly recommended to my by a friend and I would also recommend it for others. Be prepared to open your wallet though. Their menu is a la carte and pricey.
We ate there a few years ago and loved it and were really looking forward to going there again.
Unfortunately this time was a huge disappointment. We were greeted nicely and shown to our table. While looking over the extensive wine list, we asked our waiter about a particular wine that was on the cheaper end of the price range. He said he didn't think they had it and went to look. In the meantime the sommelier came by and we asked him the same thing and got the same answer. He tried to get us to buy a $500 bottle and when we said we were not interested in one that pricey he left and we never saw him again.
We ordered the aged rib eye, Italian broccoli w/garlic & pork, mushrooms and Tuscan fries. The meat was very fatty (cut off more fat then there was meat to eat) and had very little flavor. It was such a let down. The broccoli was tough and stringy, the mushrooms rubbery and had a strange aftertaste and the potatoes were dry.
So much expense for a terrible meal. I will not spend my hard earned money on them again.
I hope it was just an off night for them since last time a few years ago was an amazing dining experience.
Thought $152 was quite exorbitant for an aged bone-in ribeye intended for two that could easily have been consumed by one. The additional $5 for requested horseradish was a bit petty given the cost of the steak. The service was excellent, as our waiter carved the steak chair side and explained each part of it in detail. But I think I will stick with grilling my own steaks from now on.
I recently hosted a business dinner at Carnevino. For the positives, the food was excellent and we could not have asked for better waitstaff. The atmosphere was cozy and unpretentious. As for cons, the prices were very high for what you received, even for Vegas. In addition, the menu was really geared towards family style dining, which made it an awkward choice for a business dinner and slightly odd for a restaurant at this price point. Overall, I'd eat here again, but probably as a romantic dinner.
The meal was fantastic. One of the most memorable we have experienced. The highlight was the aged bone-in ribeye. While pricey, it was the best cut of beef we have ever had. And the chocolate and peanut butter torte was off the charts, despite the rather mundane name. Highly recommended.
Overall great service. Food was good. Steaks had an amazing flavor - their temperature is lower than I am used to - medium rare was more like rare+ in most restaurants. We did a family style thing and all were very happy. Two areas for improvement from my perspective: bread and gelato. Bread is extremely important and I felt their bread was lacking. The gelato was mediocre except the milk chocolate. The vanilla was more like the ice milk we used to get when we were kids. Regardless of the areas for improvement, I would certainly go again. 5 stars if they fix those two things.
The service at Carnevino's was absolutely outstanding and very high class. They were very attentive and respectful of our needs and held presentation in high regard. They were also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic; they really cared about diners and they're experience.
The food was also some of the best I've ever had. The famous aged rib-eye's reputation was also well earned as it was the best I've ever had, to the point where I will likely be a little disappointed in any others I eat elsewhere
First time I came here was for my surprise bday party for my father. When we received our steaks four of them were cold. When I spoke to the anther about it he was very apologetic and even went as far to refund the steaks. I did not write a review about it since I understand things happen and they did take care of us because of their mistake. However, my father and I went back this weekend and once again our steak was not prepared correctly. I asked for medium, which by their standards is not like medium rate. The steak cane and was literally RAW on the inside. When I showed the waiter he apologized and took it back to the kitchen. They reheated it and brought it back to me almost ten minutes later. Carnevino is a nice restaurant. But it does not compete with some of the other steak houses in Vegas and is most certainly not worth the cost. Great steakhouses don't repeatedly make these types of mistakes. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else.
Stupidly expensive and very loud.
We had a waiter who paid us minimal attention and when he did would interrupt our conversations. His support staff was very good.
The food ranged from mediocre to excellent. The portions of the appetizers and pasta dishes were small. The steak was very good and cooked perfectly.
I rate this restaurant like the story of the "emperors new clothes." You can buy into the hype, but there are a lot better restaurant values and experiences in Vegas.
Had such high hopes for this place. A steak for two that cost $150 was unseasoned and tough. Brussel sprouts were undercooked--"But we serve them al dente". Yea, um, I know the difference between al dente and undercooked. I shouldn't have to fight to chew a Brussel sprout. Potato wedges had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp for what I can only assume were hours--dry as sand on the inside and a taste like chalk. Add to that the restaurant's unending filling of water glasses with un-iced, tepid tap water--"It's kind of a thing we do", I was told. Literally, could not take a sip without someone filling the damn glass. Not only annoying, but no one ever bothered to offer us more wine with four empty wine glasses sitting on the table! Now add to that an unwillingness to put together a table of four in a quieter section of the restaurant, the converted table of three was overcrowded and pushed up against a table of eight, which means I had that table's waiter pushing up against the back of my chair the entire, miserable meal. Utter, complete failure on all ends. Don't waste your money.
Me and my wife were visiting Las Vegas and I honestly anticipated a very good experience however my expectations were greatly exceeded. The level of service and expertise at this restaurant was spectacular!!! Just the service and the atmosphere alone is amazing. Now the food, I love Italian food and Mario Batali is one of my favorite chefs, the beef cheek ravioli and beef tortelloni were the best thing I've ever eaten at a restaurant!! It was exquisite!! The next time we come to Vegas we will be stopping here again!!
