CarneVino Italian Steakhouse - Palazzo Hotel Ratings and Reviews
CarneVino was an amazing experience! The food was soooo good! We ordered the rib-eye and it was melting in our mouths! We also had the mashed potatoes and chop salad and everything was unique and tasty! And the service!!?? They really know how to treat a customer! We essentially had 3-4 servers tending to us! The best dining experience I've ever had!
We were there for our 28 year anniversary. It started with our table missing a foot. Drinks almost landed in my wife's lap, we had to stand by our table while he fixed it, no changing of the tablecloth..Salad was excellent along with the lemon pasta dish. Then came the steaks... We each ordered a NY strip because we like our meat cooked differently. The steaks were so tough we couldn't even eat half each. We told the staff and they didn't seam to care. I asked for salt and was brought corse sea salt ??? Basically rock salt for my steak. We paid over 300.00 for a anniversary meal and we were truly dissapointed. We will not refer your business to anyone and will tell others of our meal at your "fine dining establishment "
Waiter promoted the most expensive items on the menu. Our bill included a charge for a side we did not order.
Winelist overpriced even by Vegas standards. Few affordable bottles of new world wines. The one we selected was sold out and somm returned with an alternative that could be easily found on other winelists or retail. That was disappointing since we were hoping to try something not found on many winelists.
There are too many special restaurants in the strip hotels to spend what did for a simply ok experience. This was a business dinner and not one at the table commented about enjoying the restaurant. Overall we were disappointed since this was a return visit from last year that we enjoyed so much more.
After hearing rave reviews about CarneVino from our son-in-law, we decided to try it on Wednesday, May 17, before a show. The friendly and knowledgeable service from the hostess desk, to our server, Lance, to the sommelier, to the manager, was top-notch, as was the food. The choices for wine by the bottle, while very pricey, are extensive. It was a wonderful beginning to a special evening.
Disappointing. We started with oysters, they were ok, they did not serve us an oyster fork so they were a little difficult to eat. Bread was hard as a rock and not very tasty. The pasta course was good, but I honestly expected it to be life changing since it is Mario's restaurant. We ordered the house specialty dry aged rib eye, it was very unimpressive and lacked flavor. If you are looking for an amazing steak, make a reservation at Bazaar Meat instead, it blows Carnevino away!
Quite simply, it was one of the 4 or 5 best meals I've had ever in my life. We started with the grilled octopus, which was fantastic. The pickled radishes were a great pairing with the perfectly cooked octopus. Then I had the beef cheek ravioli (unbelievable) while my fiance had the agnolini (excellent). We finished with the ribeye for 2 and a side of mixed mushrooms. The quality of the steak was only topped by what I've had at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. The decor of the restaurant is classy yet inviting and the service was super knowledgeable about all the items on the menu. The only two downsides were that we were too full for dessert and our waiter kind of disappeared for a bit when we wanted to get our check.
The menu is pricey, but it's worth every penny. Skip one night at the tables or bottle service and treat yourself to a legendary meal instead. You won't regret it.
Service began great, but once the waiter saw that our party would not be generating a giant ticket, the service level dropped to ultra sub-par status. One member of our party order an item from the menu, as you normally would. What came out was completely different. The waiter told him what he ordered was actually not on the menu anymore, and that the meal being served was "almost" the same thing. Too bad they were from different animals all together... expected more.
My husband and I travel to Vegas for a Food-cation at least once a year. Every trip involves trying new restaurants, and we always dine at one 'higher-end' restaurant. Carnevino was the choice for this trip.
The POSITIVES: Upon being seated, our server was very helpful. The wine suggestion was great, we splurged and ordered a bottle. The Pasta was super yummy - To start, we ordered Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare - which was amazing and I was grateful that the kitchen split the dish for us to share.
The NEGATIVES: Our MAIN DISH - we ordered the Dry Aged Bone-In Ribeye (Their Signature dish) for one - to share - it was 95 $USD - it was SO SALTY AND SO DISAPPOINTING! It was so salty that my tongue and lips were numb, and no amount of water or wine would take that saltiness away.
And during our dinner, there were no servers in-sight. At the end of our dinner, the manager walked around and asked 2 of the 3 tables that were seated at roughly the same time if everything was okay - he did not come to our table. It was only when our dishes were being cleared that we were able to provide feedback on our meal. To appease us, our server said the manager would like to offer us dessert. This was not satisfactory. In the end, he gave us 1/2 off the steak.
We will not go back, and would not recommend spending your hard earned money here.
IF you decide to go to this restaurant - ask about the salt content of the meat... so that you don't feel like your mouth is a salt-lick, and you can actually enjoy that last glass of wine at the end of your meal.
The food and wine were outstanding. The prime rib for two was by far the best I've ever experienced. My only complaints would be the loud 80's rock music. I personally enjoy this genre, however it was not fitting with rest of the atmosphere. The service was also slower than it should have been. All things considered, I would happily return.
The food was terrible. I had seafood pasta and the lobster was as hard as a rock. The sauce was chunky with no flavor. My boyfriend had the short rib Ragu pasta which I thought was okay..better then my dish. I'm extremely disappointed because I've been to Mario's Eatly in New York several times and the food was amazing. My mother is a chef and we have a restaurant and catering company so I am a major foodie. I don't recommend Carnevino. For what we spent and the food we got was not worth it.
We had one of the most beautiful meals I've ever eaten. Our server, I believe his name was Lance, was top notch. Every one of his recommendations were phenomenal - he could do no wrong. Better yet, he was consistently excellent in his duties.
Our group of 7 enjoyed the Octopus, Tagliata di Manzo, and Insalata Romana to start - each dish featured beautiful flavour and meticulous attention to detail. We were overjoyed with the Beef Cheek Ravioli and the Stacchino, both were superb. The side dishes, Mashed Potatoes (heavenly), Spinach (great), and Asparagus (perfectly cooked) were all a hit.
But the really exceptional part of the meal were the Ribeye and Porterhouse steaks. Perfectly cooked, lightly dressed with English sea salt, and carved table side to our delight. These steaks were to die for - any steak lover would have the time of their life at CarneVino. We ordered 2 Ribeye and 1 Porterhouse for 7 people - and everyone ate their fill with plenty food to spare.
Add in 2 bottles of the house Scarbolo wine, and we couldn't have been happier with our meal. For anyone reading this, I'm sure you're thinking we spent a fortune, but the prices were more than reasonable and everyone left knowing we'll be back again in the future. Thank you Lance and staff at CarneVino for the most savoury and memorable meal we've ever experienced. Cheers.
Overall, an extremely disappointing experience. If you are considering this place you've probably read reviews suggesting it's the best streak house in Vegas. It's not.
The ambiance is nothing special, underwhelming even. Service was fine, but it definitely did not seem up to par given the price. And then we had the steak. We went with the house suggestion, which was disappointing in terms of size and quality. Very fatty pieces, no distinctive flavor. Wow. I will never return here and that's something I cannot say for any other Vegas steakhouse and I've been to most of them. Forget worst steakhouse in Vegas, this might be the worst restaurant on the strip.
Save yourself some money and have a better meal by going to either Delmonicos or Cut, just a stone's throw away.
We had a great meal. The waiter was excellent and a lot of fun. The filet mignons were cooked perfectly and delicious. The grilled octopus was tender and delicious. The fried calamari was excellent. The mixed mushroom side was tasteless and disappointing. The artisanal cheeses desert was wonderful with six different varieties. The wine list is extensive with a huge selection of Italian wines. There were 20 different Brunellos alone. The sommelier helped us pick a wonderful Brunello. Definitely will go back.
When I looked at price on the Ribeye (my favorite cut) set at $76, I thought, "Wow, that's pretty over the top". Top quality Prime Ribeye at the best steakhouses in NYC or Houston or even at other top houses in Vegas are routinely $45-$55 a la carte. But it was our last night in Vegas and I wanted a Ribeye so my wife and I went for the Ribeye despite the offensive price. Well....mea culpa to Mario Batali for doubting his ability to make a $76 Ribeye worth it. This one was outstanding - a Top 3 steak on a list that includes a dozen + of the best steakhouses in the US. Additionally, the steak (a huge, bone-in slab for 2 people -$76 per person) is expertly carved tableside (a nice touch) and beautifully served-out to each of us. The sides are also great. The cons were - nutso pricing on the excellent wine list and while the waitstaff was excellent - they needed 1-2 more of them in the room as our main man was hard to find at times - especially when we needed the check to head-out to catch our show. But overall - an excellent experience and a world class steak. Put it on your list.
