Aureole was a mistake in itself. Most horrific experience at a fine dining restaurant. Besides the prices be outrageous...The spinach dip was very sour, so I asked if I could order something else, they agreed that it was indeed sour. I ordered the sirloin sliders and when they came out the bread was burnt to a crisp, black in some areas. The meat in the middle was RAW and bloody. I brought it to someone's attention and they sat back and talked about it in a different language in front of us. At this point I was done.I asked for our ticket. They asked if I wanted something else, NO. I just wanted to go. Everyone was looking over at us and talking but I couldn't understand what they were saying, I felt very uncomfortable. After 10 minutes of waiting for the bill the waiter came over and presented a dessert menu! What part of we want our check did you not understand? Then the manager came over and tried to smooth things over, he was very nice. We paid the bill, after they comped my meal and left. As we were leaving the manager stopped us and offered us little desserts and champagne. It was okay, champagne makes me sick, but I drank some of it. I think at this point we had such a BAD taste in our mouths that nothing was going to remedy the situation. We ate a couple of the tiny desserts and left. Will NEVER go back.
Service was terrible, food mediocre, meal took forever, and bill was huge. The fixed price menu and automatic gratuity (large group) meant they could neglect us and we'd still have to give them a good tip.
May not matter to everyone, but there were no vegetarian or chicken entrees on the menu (they did make a chicken dish on request though) and the worst part--they served us bread with bacon and did not tell us! Half of us do not eat pork for ethical and religious reasons, but we did that night, much to our horror!
There are so many better restaurants in Vegas. Don't waste your time or money at Aureole.
Aureole is probably more famous for the dazzling wine tower than its food-- as someone who has sampled their menu, I would agree. Certainly the food was delicious, but of the dishes I ordered on the menu, I had expected something special from a special restaurant with a special centerpiece. Instead, the chilled seafood sampler was lackluster, even down to the dipping sauces. The only part of that dish that actually tingled my senses was when I gulped down the raw oysters and lemon sorbet. The metallic taste of the oysters and the refreshing burst of lemony flavor was drool-inducing. Unfortunately, this was not an ingenious presentation of oysters and I had to disentangle my tongue from bits of oyster shells.
My entrée was delicious, but unmemorable. I remember it was some sort of fish… I visited the restaurant in the middle of December and I am reviewing this restaurant on December 26.
Since I sat in the lounge, where guests were able to order food a la carte, the atmosphere was intimate and the service was fantastic. The servers were courteous and paid attention to detail. Also, they were very knowledgeable about the food—from explaining how some of the seafood dishes were prepared to the uniqueness of certain baked breads (if you ever visit the place, order the bacon bread, it makes me foam at the mouth imagining how scrumptious it is). I would recommend this restaurant if you are interested in a unique restaurant (its very photo friendly) or enjoying a time to relax and unwind. As for food aficionados, this place is not the best for fine seafood dining.
(I would recommend Mastro’s Ocean Club in Newport Beach, CA for some seriously delicious seafood eats!)
This place is the worst! Don't do it! There are so many good places to go. It is a shame this place still gets good ratings. I have eaten here a few times, but the last time was the worst. The service was horrible. We waited hours for everything. This is supposed to be a wine oriented restaurant. I had to request the wine menu. I ordered from it and they brought me the wrong wine. I drank it anyway so I would not have to confront the server. You can order two ways: 1) one set menu; or 2) choose each of three courses. I took the latter. I did not get my third course (although I paid for it) because after sitting in this vacant space with no ambiance for 3 hours I just wanted to leave. There are so many good place to eat in Vegas. Do not waste your time and money here.
My favorites: Olives at Bellagio. Delmonico at The Venitian. Little Buddah at The Palms.
Went to Aureole in LV expecting out of this world food and wine. The atmosphere is very tense and uptight. Food was average. For 3 people, we wound up paying over $100 each (a 3 course dinner and one glass of wine each). My two dinner companions ordered the veal special, and the meat was RAW. The dinners were sent back and cooked some more. Scored some free risotto and dessert out of it. I must say, the service was pretty good. Other than that, nothing too impressive about the place. Also, ask for regular old tap water, otherwise will wind up spending $9 a bottle on water (I feel we were tricked into getting the bottled water). FYI, there is a VERY SMALL wine list if you get by the glass. Cheap red wine starts at about $200 a bottle. I wouldn't go back again. I would recommend Rosemary's instead (excellent food, better prices, 1/2 price wine on Sundays).
I was on a business trip and happened to stroll into Aureole for a quick night of food and wine and glad I stayed till almost closing. The bar staff,Sal, Norris, John, and David were very professional and made me feel welcomed and made sure that my glass of wine was always full. I felt as though I have known them forever. A must see when your in Las Vegas.
My husband and I had our twosome wedding dinner at Aureole. The food was great and the wine list outstanding - but more than anything the else the service really made the night for us! When a gentlemen found it appropriate to put his phone on loadspeaker the staff was quick to note our dissatisfaction and deal with it! I give Aureole my highest recommendation and props to the staff!!
Someone told me about this place about a year ago; fortunately, fate put me in Vegas over Thanksgiving. I was intriqued with the possibility of reviewing and selecting wines from a wireless menu!
I was able to quickly get acclimated with the electronic wine menu and was definately impressed. The staff could use some humility though, but at the end of the day, I didn't have to deal with them much because I selected a nicely priced bottle of wine on the wireless tablet and that was that.
The food was simply awesome. The seabass was delicious and tender - cooked to perfection. Similarly, the foie gras was wonderful.
Yes, everyone raves about the wine tower. It is cool, but it's what's inside that gets me excited. The wine list was extensive (and my experience was before the tablet PCs) and I spent a long time before deciding on a rare Chateauneuf du Pape. It was absolutely yummy.
