Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak Restaurant Review

: Executive chef/owner Tom Colicchio created a menu with a wide range of choices served family-style, well prepared by executive chef Robert Kirchhoff. For starters, we like the Maine lobster bisque, and the elegant charcuterie platter. The shellfish sampler --- chilled lobster, red king crab, littleneck clams, oysters, shrimp cocktail and seaweed salad --- is always popular. Among seafood entrées are braised Maine lobster, roasted diver scallops and salmon. Carnivores like the braised 24-hour short rib with cipollini onion, as well as the array of savory steaks, including domestic and Japanese A5 Wagyu. The extensive selection of sides includes butternut squash risotto, shishito peppers, roasted asparagus and an assortment of mushrooms. Chocolate soufflé with caramel chip ice cream is among dessert favorites. Complementing the fare is a notable wine list, evidenced by the wall of wine bottles behind the massive 22-seat bar that spans the width of the lounge. A first-rate selection of single malt scotches is also highlighted.

Craftsteak - pack up your knives

The tasting menu at Craftsteak was an embarrassing disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I like steakhouses and have been to several in Las Vegas, but Craftsteak was a major disappointment.
The tasting menu: the Kobe beef was decent and the rib eye tasted great, but it was tough and chewy. The Caesar salad was pathetic. The brussel sprouts were undercooked, though, covered in so much bacon and onions you couldn't taste the sprouts. The mushrooms were drenched in an unappealing sauce so much you couldn't taste them either.
None of the hot dishes were served hot; most were barely warm. Dessert was served with hard fruit.
