Sax Ratings and Reviews

The food, ambience and waitress were great! The flaw was that there was a $75/ person min and no one said anything until after I was finished. I had appetizer, entree, and dessert drink for 2. The waitress asked if it was my first time here when I sat down. In addition, there's a second line on bill for additional tip.

Food was overpriced and equivalent to what they serve for a first-class airplane seat. Performances were ok for kids and not what was expected for a "high-end" burlesque performance. Something you would see in a lobby of a Vegas hotel. Drinks were too sugary even though they were not supposed to be. Servers were "nice" but did not appear well-groomed - meaning like - did they take a shower? Have been here several times before and the service, entertainment and food have gone WAYYY downnnnn

My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays and had a great time. The only downside is the hostess seated us on the first floor RIGHT next to another dining party (the men kept hitting on us) when we specifically requested second floor seating. It was hard to see the first few performances; however (thankfully) our server was AWESOME and seated us on the second floor mid-meal. We were pleasantly surprised when she brought us mini birthday cakes. We made sure to leave her a hefty tip. ;-)

While the bar area was still dead at 11:30pm on a Friday, we absolutely loved our dining experience. Great seats and loved the entertainment!! The food was good, but we'd totally come and do this again just because its way more fun than just a regular dinner date. Oh and fun to dance in my seat while I ate...great music.

Sax was a great night out for adults in celebration of my husbands birthday. They gave us a round of free shots and a free single serving birthday cake on the house. The food is very tasty and generous portions but on the pricier side for both food and drinks. However they have an amazing selection at the bar and can make any obscure drink you want!
On a Friday there is a $75/person minimum and don't forget the 20% service charge added to make sure your servers are tipped. The service was amazing and we had a fun flirty time! Definitely worth the cost.
Not a great experience mainly because of the food.
Our shrimp appetizer was severely undercooked. My steak was burnt on the outside and contained way too much fat. My veggies were of salted and the potatoes re uneventful. For the amount of money charged it's just not worth it. The service was good but you just can't overcome subpar food. We most likely will not return.

Rushed Service + Bad Treatment = No Return
I met a date there for a dual birthday celebration. She had never been and was excited to be there. Unfortunately they found a way to make us both uncomfortable both during and after our meal. During the course of our meal, they were extremely quick in getting our food out and onto the table. They were as quick removing it. There was one gentleman who stood very close to our table and basically glared at us all night. He never smiled. He never introduced himself nor did he seem to be helping our service person with anything. There was another very large table of nice young women behind us who seemed to be mostly African American. There was also a table closest to the stage where there seemed to be a table of other people having their own dinner. At some point, my date and I noticed that the ladies abruptly just got up and left the building. A very short time after it became clear to me why. Sometime very shortly after our dinner we sat talking while my date enjoyed the shows. At that point the service person came over and asked us to leave because the needed our table. I was quite shocked to hear this but did not want to cause a scene so I walked my date to her car and made sure she was OK.
I brushed this off and returned to their bar area thinking maybe the service was just a bit weird in that area. I returned to the very edge of the bar and ordered a drink. I sipped as the bar area got very crowded. At some point some guy walks up and says I have to leave the corner of the bar because I was blocking the "paying customers". By that time I had spent about $350 dollars in food and drinks I was drinking at his bar. I told him this and he dismissed it so I did the same to him. By then that weird "you don't belong here" feeling was way worse. The person left then returned very soon with the front door staff who asked me to talk to him. I thought he wanted to help me. Boy did he! Right out the now locked gate! Yes, I am African American.
The service is very good however the seating arrangement or placement is crucial. This spot caters to large parties because of the revenue, for just the regular dinner for two they will sit you anywhere and rush you thru dinner. Let's understand that you have to spend $75 dollars pp, therefore you are paying for an experience which I did not get. I only hope others have a better time then I did because I will never go back. Try Delfriscos!
My partner and I visited this establishment for our anniversary. It was a surprise for him that I was extremely excited to plan. The decor, which in our opinion, is remesemblant of french opulence consists of a lot of bright golds and dark reds- which was right up our alley. The hostess was very polite and the service from everyone was far from disappointing. The food was wonderfully comforting and satisfying, TRY THE TRUFFLE FRIES, and the drinks were refreshing. Their signature drink of the night, Scandalous, was something neither of us expected but we had to order more than one! The lighting in the establishment is low but it compliments the purpose and design perfectly. The performers and shows were exciting to watch and we could not have been more pleased with our time there. We both agreed that this is not the last time we will frequent SAX.
Good but over priced
Food was okay, a little disappointed that my steak was over cooked, ordered medium-raw and came out medium to medium-well. Asparagus was very salty and potato side was burnt on top. A single Jameson was a little less than twice as much in comparison to over dinning experiences. Fondue was very good.
From the phone call at initial booking throughout the night of my girlfriends birthday everything was amazing. All staff members were so professional and courteous. Lindsay was amazing! I highly recommend her. The entire experience brought night life clubbing to an entire new level. I had more fun here then I did in Las Vegas...! Thank you SAX.
Ambiance magnificent, service spectacular, but....
This was a perfect romantic spot for my husband and I and the service was amazing. I was very disappointed that with the price of the food there were only 5 minute shows every 20 minutes. My expectations were much higher so I was overall disappointed with the value. I do appreciate the beauty of the restaurant and the service that was provided.
Was Still Hungry
The ambiance and the restaurant staff was great. The meal began with Popcorn, which was tasty. We ordered appetizers the truffle fries were really good and an order of shrimp which was just OK. The entrees were not filling at all. All of the entrees that we tried were really good, The sea Bass, scallops, and the ravioli, but the portion sizes of the sides were very disappointing, we were all still hungry afterwards. For the price of the entrees, that was very disappointing and we will not be back.
There were mixed reviews for Sax when I was researching a place to celebrate my birthday but I am glad I picked Sax. Food was not out of this world but it hit the spot. Drinks were great and the atmosphere was fantastic. It was super luxurious and the entertainment was a 10! We stayed after dinner and had drinks at the bar. Overall, if your looking for good entertainment and a fancy spot, Sax will do the trick.
