Dining room at Spago, Las Vegas, NV

Spago Restaurant Review

: Among the first wave of nationwide fine-dining imports to come to Las Vegas, Wolfgang Puck's Spago is still one of the best. Executive chef Eric Klein, a native of Alsace, replicates the sophisticated and daily changing fare in the Puck tradition and conjures innovative tastes using all natural, fresh and organic ingredients. Klein formerly worked at Spago Beverly Hills, among other Puck establishments, as well as Wynn Las Vegas’ SW and FIX in Bellagio. When in season, we recommend the blue crab cakes with orange-fennel marmalade, and the Hong Kong-style steamed Loch Duart salmon with bok choy, snap peas and ponzu sauce. Slow-braised beef short ribs are paired with handmade ricotta gnocchi, roasted tomato and olive sauce. In Spago’s café, fronting the fine dining room and good for no-reservations eating and people-watching, the signature smoked salmon pizza with dill cream, black caviar and chives is a winner. We also like the meatloaf with various preparations, such as a pancetta wrapping and accompaniments including mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy and onion rings. Among desserts are Key lime pie baked Alaska with lime gelato, graham cracker ice cream and huckleberry compote. The wine list nicely complements the creative cuisine.

Good food poor service
by Maquak on Fri Aug 08, 2008 11:09 am
 
Went to Spago as I always do on my trips to Vegas August 4, 20008. The food was great, service getting worse and worse each year. Last year had to get my own drink, short staff, this year table behind me with 3 women pre-occupied my waiter. He saw me only once after a wait, to get my order and once to bring the first and only drink. Food runner brought salad, no pepper, she did not understand, bus person served lots of water but could not bring me wine. She asked waiter twice to come to table. As app came, the Smoke Salmon Pizza, I thought I would get up and get my own drink again, but decided, I have had enough. Waked out on what would have been a truly good meal. The service here at this Spago in Ceasars Palace is lacking. The times I did get a decent waiter, the food delivery time seemed excessive for the time of day I dine. I expect and pay for better. There are too many great restaurants in this town to put up with less. I quit eating dinner here two years ago because of the chaos at night. The night wait staff does try, but there are too few it seems. After 8 years, 3 times each year, this was my last meal at spago. This particular waiter was the end for me. :cry:
