Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina - MGM Grand Detroit Ratings and Reviews
The service was excellent! Told our waitress we were catching a show and she made sure to speed up our meals. The singer on Saturday night was excellent! Drinks were excellent! Food tasted amazing; however was extremely disappointed in the small serving size compared to the price per dish.
The service was horrible! The waitress took are order and never came back. Until I asked for the bill from a different staff member. Food was ok at best for the pricing. I wouldn't go back, very disappointed in the MGM restaurants to date. Hope fully they get it together soon.
Our experience for a New Year's Eve experience was very poor. Usually we get much better service. They rushed out us out as they brought bill while we were on our entrees. Plus our favorite appetizer steamed mussels was not available because some manager did not order enough. Plus they reported to open table that we were no show
Still I gave generous 30% tip
I think they owe us a better service next time and complimentary appetizer at least
Upon arriving at the front desk the young man at the desk spent at least 2 minutes texting on his watch. He only looked up when someone else walked up and asked if there were any tables available. After answering the gentleman's query. He then addressed us and the other couple waiting. We both actually HAD reservations. It took about 10 minutes to be seated. 10 more minutes to be acknowledged by our waitress. Several more minutes to actually place our order and receive my wine. My husband was halfway through his drink by the time my wine came.
We were seated as soon as we arrived and the wait staff was excellent - very attentive, friendly, and professional. All four of our meals - from the soup and salad to the entrees - were cooked to perfection and the presentation was very appealing. Our dinners ranged from pizza to spaghetti to salmon and were flavorful and delicious. We were all very pleased with our dining experience.
They were running behind on our reservation, we were able to be seated about 10 minutes after our reserved time. We were seated in the front area that borders the casino, nice for people watching. Waitress was nice, received our drinks and food quickly, and then she brought us our bill without even asking if we needed dessert or anything else. I felt like I was being rushed out of there, but I then ordered dessert and another drink, both of which took longer than the original meal to receive. So that part was a little disappointing.
Open table shouldn't take reservations here - because you have to walk through a casino and you have anyone under 21, you can't get into restaurant without a security escort that takes at least 20 mins to get. If you reserve without OpenTable they tell you this - but if open table you wouldn't know. Then the SMOKE from the casino is TERRIBLE. All our clothes need dry cleaning. SERIOUS smoke. I picked it cause it was WP but disappointed.
It was my husbands birthday and I have eaten there several times before, I thought the food was very good. I don't know what happened Thursday my husband ordered steak and there was so much fat on it you couldn't even cut it with the knife. I had scallops, and they tasted like they were a little over done, although I didn't say anything about them.
First impression walking in was of an amazing, beautifully decorated restaurant. The booth that my date and I were seated at was secluded with walls on three sides, giving us a sense of comfort and privacy. Our service was friendly and not rushed in the slightest, and we were able to chat while browsing the menus at length. Side note, if you are having drinks with dinner, be prepared to spend some time on the wine and cocktail menu as it is quite thick, though popular dinner drinks (specialty drinks and wines) are at the front of the menu. Every dish brought to our table was exquisite. Flavors were balanced, portions were just enough that the entire meal (2 courses and shared appetizer and dessert) was filling with nothing left on the plates. The atmosphere was generally relaxed and we barely noticed the other patrons around us. This may be different on the weekend when the restaurant is busier.
One major drawback is that this restaurant is inside the MGM Grand, and you do have to walk a significant part of the casino floor to get to it. This could pose a problem to anyone with smoke allergies. Also a warning, you pay for what you get. While there are more reasonably priced items on the menu, a simple two entree dinner with tip can actually run over $100. The food is worth the price, just be prepared.
I recommend the mussels and dessert, don't bother with the between. Steak was tough, and I mean chewy tough - it was a ribeye, my husband couldn't finish it- he NEVER doesn't finish a steak! I ordered the chicken piccata. Just too much chicken and quite boring, actually just gave up eating the food was so dull. We were given a free dessert for the TOUGH steak... Mascarpone cheesecake was delicious I have to say. Service was blah, it was like the waitress just couldn't be bothered. I won't be going back, and don't recommend it if you're even slightly interested in eating good food, or can cook yourself.
Loved the staff. They were very accommodating, but the food is subpar. Among other things, we chose the soup of the day...a mushroom bisque. They were out. Saw what looked like a lobster bisque go by us. They were out of that. Ended up with a gray looking corn something soup that was certainly too old to serve. It tasted like they had found it and heated it just to serve something. Then went to salad. I can't complain here. But then, main course: chicken. Wow! I cannot speak volumes of its poor taste. Not what I expect from this restaurant. Other meals were similarly less than stunning.
We went for New Year's eve dinner around 1700 hrs. We had a reservation but were obliged to wait in line with the "mod" for almost 15 minutes. The hostesses were quite slow. Our dinner was excellent, yet our server was very slow to return to our table to check our progress. As a result we were often "drinkless". I expect better service when dining at a fine establishment like Wolfgang Puck's. Will I return? Probably, but I may have some on site requests re: timely service when I do.
This restaurant never disappoints! Everything is always top notch here from the food to the service to the ambiance. Julie is such a friendly server and when we asked if they had a different type of bread she went out of her way to go get it for us from the other restaurant next door. It was another amazing night at one of our favorite restaurants!
You can never go wrong with a WolfgGang Puck Restaurant. The service, the menu and most important the food delicious. Last night, one of our guest a Cordon Bleu Culinary school graduate with 40 years of experience under his belt said "the meal and the wine select was perfect".
when I go to this place, they know me by name and food of choice. They know which servers section I prefer to be seated in, and the server knows my favorite bread and dipping condiments. it is like showing up at a friends house as a dinner guest. They always make my visit the best it can be. It is a great experience to be able to enjoy a meal out and feel like your at home. I truly love going here.
We were disappointed with our recent dining experience at Wolfgang Pucks Pizzeria and Cucina. We were seated for almost ten minutes before our server greeted us and asked for our beverage order. The restaurant did not seem overly busy but our observation was that the staff seemed to be running around in chaos. The food was okay, but nothing to rave about. We have dined at several other Wolfgang Puck establishments and didn't find this experience to be on the same level. Wouldn't recommend or return.
We have dined here twice for an evening meal after being in the casino. It is quiet and the food is excellent. Service is great , no need to worry about getting a refill or another drink. The waitress was friendly and welcoming as well as the hostess. Great place for food and a relaxing dinner!
We stayed at MGM Grand in a beautiful suite to celebrate Hubby's Birthday, and our Anniversary. So I made reservations through OPENTABLE for Wolfgang Puck's Pizzeria & Cucina, for 6 of us. Cocktails were delicious, bruschetta was yummy, and the chicken piccata was just as our server described...the best!
Wow. ....... this place was really amazing from the time we entered tool we left, we felt as though we were the only people there. The customer service was great. The waiter knew everything about every dish on the menu and was beyond helpful in helping us make our decision. The drinks were perfect abs refreshing. The food was to die for. It had so much flavor, abs was so mouth watering. This place was all around perfect so cute and romantic. I can't wait to return
