Probably the best Italian food in Las Vegas not on the main strip. This is not around the corner from where I live, but the drive is worth it. It is also not cheap. But the taste is everything, and as a born in New Yorker, the spiciness of the food, the creaminess of the Fettucini Alfredo, and the wine and mushrooms in my Chicken marsala were on point! I will return many times.

We celebrated my sons birthday last night. It was our first visit. The food was fantastic. With all in our party convinced it was the best they’d ever had. Our server was so friendly and gracious. We loved the piano player and singing happy bday was a treat. We’ll be back.

A lot to do about nothing. Not worth the money. Nothing unique, just a nother italien restaurant. Needs refreshing really badly. First and last time visit.

We went to Bootlegger Bistro for our 2nd Anniversary. Aside from a slight delay before we got to order, the service matched the delicious food. This is a fun place with a lot of history. My massage therapist at Canyon Ranch at the Venetian provided a really great recommendation!

Not my first visit to Bootlegger Bistro, but first visit as a solo diner, and the impeccable service I’ve had on previous visits. The restaurant was busy, so I was seated at small table in the bar near the server beverage pick up area. No sooner get seated and over hear a server complain to another server how busy he was with his tables and the hostess had added “her” meaning me to his section. This server did not introduce himself, but the name Aaron was on my check. From the start he made it clear through his lack of attention and abrupt behavior that I was an inconvenience to him. He addressed me as either “Love” of “Sunshine”. He took my drink order and quickly asked if I was ready to order. The other male server in the same area was the one who refilled my water glass, asked if I wanted another glass of wine, and how my meal was. Never once did Aaron ask how my meal was. At the end of my meal he came by and asked if I wanted dessert or my check.
The food was spectacular as it usually is! Very disappointed in the service I received, but like I said, I was a solo diner and maybe be solo diners aren’t valued as much as other guests?It’s a different experience when I’ve been here with my husband.

Our waitress LaRae was awesome! As first time diners, she was patient and very helpful in our dining order. I was wondering about a wine and she volunteered to let me sample a red and white wine. She was also very informative and helpful in our meal. With her help we ordered calamari as an appetizer. It was tasty, crunchy and not heavy with oil, just as she said it would be…excellent! My wife ordered a white sauce chicken dish with noodles and capers, while I ordered lasagne. Both were were great! Finished off with a lemon cheesecake for desert. I finally found an Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas that I’ll look forward to dining at in the future.

Dinner date with my husband had a 8:15 appointment through open table which we have used two times and works very well. Our service was very nice and given a complimentary appetizer that was like a plate of bread pillows with sauce to dip in which were really chewy and kind of hard. We did not complain seeing they were complimentary as we did not want to se ungrateful.
My husband ordered Meat filled Raviolis which were very delicious. I ordered the Spaghetti with meatballs which was good but did not care for the extra hamburger in the sauce which was not as tender as the meatballs. As we ended our meal we asked about their late night menu which had included pancakes which we had on a regular basis before and were so very Amazing abs delicious before Covid and were very disappointed to find out it may not be coming back, therefore don’t know if we will be going back.

Food was great. Fried ravioli appetizer was great with great sauce. Had veal marsella. It was very good. Even chicken breast that I had was moist and vegetables were done perfectly. Old fashion was not so good. Should have tried one of their specialty drinks. We ate early. When we left around 6:30, there were people waiting.

Ordered a pasta dish with vegetables, they forgot the vegetables, then brought them after we asked, then charged up $3 for them!! Sea bass way to fishy taste and way too much lemon
Been a favorite of ours for years, have definitely declined over the last year
Disappointed and can’t recommend like I used to

This was a wonderful way to end our Las Vegas trip. The food was outstanding and the service was good. We were inspired to have a late night dinner due to the comic show starting at 10pm. Everyone in my party enjoyed themselves and will be sure to return the next time we are in Vegas.

We went for our anniversary on a Friday at 6:30PM and they welcomed us and wished us a happy anniversary. We were seated in a booth across from the piano and and had the piano player sing and play throughout dinner with a few breaks.
We had Caesar salad, grilled vegetables and eggplant parm. The food and service was good and the ambience and overall experience was very good.
