LAVO Restaurant Review

: This attractive space is inspired by the bathhouses of ancient Mediterranean culture. The kitchen prepares classic Italian cuisine such as baked clams oreganata, brick-oven pizzas, penne seafood, crab and artichoke agnolotti with preserved lemon, and house specialties like chicken Marsala. USDA Prime steaks are also available. On Saturdays, a party brunch from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. features an expansive selection of Champagne and European house music. On Saturdays, a more traditional brunch is served beforehand, from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with unlimited mimosas.

Too Loud and Too close
by jrl on Thu Aug 22, 2013 12:40 pm
 
We wanted a nice dinner before attending the 9:30 PM performance of Beatles Love at the Mirage. Lavo was recommended to us as having great food and being across the street from the Mirage. We were seated promptly at 6:15 at a table for two set up on the "long bench" seating along the far wall. The music was so loud, I felt that I was in the night club and on the dance floor, rather than in the restaurant (night club not even open yet). I could not talk to my wife without using a very loud voice. The waitress had to keep repeating things and leaning over the table - and even then my wife could not understand much of what she said. We considered leaving to find someplace more quiet, but decided to stick it out. To summarize: Positives (1) Waitress Tashia was excellent. (2) Lobster and accompanying pasta dish was very good. Negatives: (1) LOUD Music (2) Small tables - when our food came, not enough space for all the dishes - had to combine food items - there goes the "presentation". (3) No "personal space" - tables so close that we felt like we were seated with a group on a bench in a pizza parlor. (4) Garlic bread was baked all the way through - crunched and tasted like croutons. Tashia said it was not supposed to be like this and offered to get us a replacement, but the main course had arrived and no room for the bread basket anyway.(5) Prices - I would have no problem with the prices if the atmosphere/setting were consistent with the price level (diet coke - $4.50 each, no free refills, small sides of green beans and asparagus $ 11.00 each). But when I feel like we are sitting at a fast food place or food court and I just want to finish my meal and leave as soon as possible, it's very annoying to pay that kind of price. I wished that I would have checked the reviews before booking, as there were a number of reviews that also complained about the noise: "loud"; "deafening house music"; "couldn't carry on a conversation"; etc. I don't expect a night club, dance club, lounge or bar to be quiet or have a romantic atmosphere. But I had hoped for a better experience at a supposedly top class RESTAURANT. If you decide to go here for the food, which was very good, get an end booth or table in the middle of the restaurant or dine outside (thunderstorm happening when were there, so that option not available) and don't expect a romantic or conversational atmosphere - unless they turn the volume down!
