Although it specified "to share" on the menu, I did not want to share my DB crispy flatbread! Great combination of caramelized onions, pancetta and goat cheese. My entree was the mussels. Decent, but not the greatest mussels I've ever had.

We went to this restaurant for thanksgiving dinner. Our service was extremely poor, the waiter was a klutz. He dropped my friend's drink, made us repeat our order and was constantly interrupting our conversation. I dont think that the food was extraordinary either. We spent close to 1000 USD and felt extremely disappointed. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. In a place like Vegas, I would recommend to spend your money elsewhere.

Everyplace at the Wynn seems to be more beautiful than the last. This one is light and airy. Fantastic without being quite as intimidating as some of the others. There is a price fixe menu if you come early. The cheese is off the charts, with a number of plates available. They feature a strange burger, with foi gras and other meats stuffed in it. I didn't have the nerve to try that. Pricey but not crazy for the place and type of food.

I am a NYC foodie who enjoys high end dining. We had a dinner reservation to celebrate a birthday, which was noted on the reservation. First, the ambience: The sound system, which was playing Top 40 music (strange for the level of dining) randomly got loud and then got quiet. In addition, there is a waterfall light show that goes on right outside the restaurant on the patio for the Wynn's steak house next door, and during each show, we heard the blasting, thumping techno soundtrack that went along with the show as if we at Daniel Boulud had a front row seat. We were not even near the window! (It was so loud that I actually thought the restaurant was blasting the music as part of its soundtrack until I realized there was a show outside.) Besides the fact that this spectacle is cheesy, it is completely ridiculous that you're eating at Daniel Boulud listening to that during dinner. We ordered their prix fixe dinner (3 courses). We were not told of any specials even though we heard other waiters read them to other diners near us. The food was shockingly subpar. This is Vegas, land of luxury and competition! My first course was a Caesar salad, which in addition to being uncreative as an appetizer (why would Boulud serve such an uncreative dish with absolutely NO twist/surprise?) was just blah. There was no presentation or wow factor. My next course was a dry salmon. The MOMENT we were finished with a course the plates were grabbed away. Bread crumbs were never scraped off the table. Lastly, this was supposed to be a special bday celebration which was noted on the reservation. EVERY restaurant brings a bday celebrant something "token" at dessert. (Every other Wynn restaurant did.) When I went to the restroom, my companion was asked, "Is it your birthday or hers?" It was a surprise! Since our prix fixe came with a dessert course, all the restaurant did was scrawl HAPPY BDAY on the dessert SHE ORDERED. Our bill came to $148 dollars.

I love food and I love Vegas. I've been to Vegas three times in the last year, and have eaten at Joel Robuchon at the Mansion, Picasso, Guy Savoy, Huber Keller's burger bar, and Bouchon. While each of those restaurants clearly has its strengths, Daniel Boulud is by far my overall favorite for ambiance and food, food, food. I only spent three nights in Vegas this time around, but I made a point of eating at Boulud twice, even foregoing a chance to eat at L'atelier to do so. My suggestion: sit at the bar, which is really more of a lounge. There was no waiting on either night (thurs and sat), and the wonderful server (I regret that I do not remember her name, but she had blonde hair and was a total foodie) expertly guided us through the full menu (which was available at the "luxe but you would be comfortable in jeans" bar). If this server is there, eat whatever she tells you to and drink whatever she tells you to. If she's not, then have the lobster salad, the french onion soup, the coq au vin, **the shortribs for sure** and a few glasses of wine. I love the bar because you can enjoy the finest food in the most relaxed atmosphere. To me, that winning combination pushes Boulud above and beyond the other great fine dining options in Vegas.

Pros: Expert advice from the servers in the bar

Cons: The burger is good, but other things are better

After making reservations more than 2 weeks in advance to celebrate our anniversary, my boyfriend and I arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes early. We were told that our table would be ready in a few minutes. Half an hour later and after many scowls, we were finally led to our table. Granted, they gave us a fantastic view of the waterfall, but even an apology or acknowledgment that they were running a little behind would have been appreciated. The waiter was polite but a little aloof. I pointed out a piece of food floating in my untouched water to be exchanged for a fresh glass. It was done quickly but again, no apology. The food, however, was good Not magnificent or to-die-for or even worth the price, but it was certainly above caliber. My opinion is to take your money elsewhere. In a city like Ls Vegas, there are definitely more than enough options to choose from!

3/2007 -- This is the first time I've ever been compelled to write an online review of any kind. After being seated, we waited fifteen minutes just to get water. It was downhill from there, including a bland, tough steak; a thin, watery shrimp cocktail; and witnessing a waiter spill a drink down the back of a lady sitting at the next table. The manager seemed aloof and callous upon our exit. If you're interested in this type of restaurant, I STRONGLY URGE you to go to Bouchon in the Venetian -- a thousand times better.

We were too late for a reservation here so we ate in the bar.
Very cool place great food and great service.
Reminded me of a nice cozy New York hotel bar like The St Regis.
Loved it

Dined here on 11/09/06. Average food but flat out lousy service. We were ignored from the moment we were seated. Know one approached us for 10-15 minutes to take a drink order. Ended up asking a busyboy to send someone to us. The wine servie was a joke. The wine served presented the bottle but did not poor any to taste saying he would return once we finished our cocktails. Of course he never did so we ended up helping ourself. Our server, when she was around, was so rushed it took all the joy of dining away. The lemon lobster risotto was average but the crispy duck confit was above average. The bartender prepared the best Manhattan I've ever had. All in all, stop in for a drink at the bar but dine elsewhere. Try Sensi at the Bellagio. The food is much better and the service wonderful.

The chef, Philippe Rispoli, showed his talents to The Commanderie de Bordeaux Las Vegas Chapter on October 27, 2006. All our members felt that this was one of the best dinners ever prepared for our group. The service was impeccable, thanx to Theresa Valiante and the chef's attention to detail, timing and presentation of a multi-course meal, prepared to match each of the wines, places this among our top favorites. No mean feat for the close scrutiny given by our demanding membership. This event was grand, elegant, and everything we expected and more.

Daniel Boulud was a pleasant place for dinner with a small group. The sommelier was very helpful, and helped us order just the right wine. Our server was very friendly, and came by often to check on us (but was never intrusive). The food was good, though I wasn't as blown away by the $32 burger as I had expected to be. The fries were fantastic though! Our table had a nice view of the waterfall outside, but I found the light show to be a bit creepy. Overall, it was a good dining experience.

If you enjoy French Food, you can not pass on DB. The food was to die for, the dining room is gorgeous but not stuffy. The bar is a different feel, more relaxed and warm and comfortable. We've eaten there twice - once on the patio and once inside and both have different feels. During one of our dining experiences, the Chef came to the table and chatted us up and explained his food techniques when we asked him - a great guy. You don't find great touches like this anymore. The wine list is out of this world... you could go to DB for the wine list alone. I'll be bringing all my out of town guests to DB!

I thought the $32 burger was just a gimmick, but I walked away feeling like I had gotten a bargain. It was more delicious than I could have imagined. The charcuterie plate had some of the best quality meat, and the cheese plate had delicious cheeses (although not as many as you may find elsewhere). But after being blown away by the burger, we ordered several amazing desserts. I've never had anything like the tropical fruit pudding and the profiteroles were heavenly. The pastry chefs are genuises. In addition, the hostesses and staff were more than friendly, even down to the guy cleaning the bathroom. The Wynn and the restaurant and beautiful; pay attention to the remarkable decor in the restaurant before you get distracted by the watershow in the lagoon outside. I found this restaurant experience better than Nobu and Mix.

We have eaten in some of the world's best restaurants and were hopeful that the reviews here weren't accurate. We can only confirm that this restaurant is highly, highly overrated. A restaurant of this caliber should have flawless service and food that exceeds expectations. Instead, we were seated 20 minutes after our actual reservation, which had been made one month previously, and only after I complained. No adequate apologies were made. Our meals were served while we were still eating our appetizers and my husband wasn't even seated at the table! We had to send his food back....with another server because we couldn't find our server. Again, no adequate apologies, no complimentary dessert to offset our obvious frustration, nothing. Food was okay, but not worth the $$$. Overall, a disappointing experience.

The Original DB Burger was absolutely amazing. Worth every penny. The service was excellent. I don't have one single complaint about this restuarant.

I had braised short ribs everywhere and i make my own as well. This place can make mean braised short ribs like no one's business. Halibut was excellent and fresh. Service was great. I and my boyfriend had a great evening.

The thing that drew me was the extensive foi gras items. I ordered seared foi gras appetizer that was decent. Slightly underflavored and overcooked. Then I ordered the DB burger (sirloin stuffed with foi gras and truffles. The foi gras and truffle were simply lost and the burger was cold. The service was average for most but well below average for a restaurant of this caliber. We had to flag down staff for water refills and the check. We were never offered another bottle of wine so we didn't bother getting one. And this was late in the evening when there were hardly any tables to wait on! A good lunch place at best- though I hear they're closed for lunch now because business was slow.

Trying out Daniel Boulud Brasserie combined with a LaReve show package sounded like a great deal for just an extra $150 for two three-course-dinners. They explained they used special menus designed to get through the meal quickly and to the show on time. However, these "special menus" turned out to be a cover phrase for the least expensive items on their regular menu such as spring greens, onion soup or beet salad. The soup was overly salty and way too hot (even after cooling down for 15 minutes). For desert I asked them to leave out the part that I am allergic to but the kitchen refused because we were ordering off the "special menu". Service was slow and innatentive, our wait staff was off in the corners chatting most of the time, water glasses were hardly ever refilled, and it took over 20 minutes to get the check.

Entering the Brasserie I was pleasantly surprised to find our reservation request for an outdoor table honored without the often awkward LV expectation of a greased palm, although I did the right thing when presented our table . Our server was gracious and made us feel more than welcome and comfortable. The wine steward was very helpful in recommending an excellent selection, with a sense of humor and ease. We ordered bottled water as well but it was placed in an ice bucket away from our table making its service difficult for the server assistant. Our meal was wonderful, the veal cheeks and sweetbread schnitzel was cooked and sauced to perfection. The desserts were a perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience.

We had a good experience at Daniel Boulud but not great. We started with mussels which were tasty but we've had better. The broth was flavorful but not extraordinary. The bread served was great but I wish it was warm. We ordered 2 recommended entrees from the slow cooked section of the menu. The braised short ribs were good but slightly salty. The slow cooked duck with crispy skin was again tasty but very salty. The mashed potatoes and mushrooms were pretty good but the salt really overwhelmed the dish. For dessert we got the raspberry tart for two which was the best part of the meal. The raspberries were on top of a pistachio cream and crust and served with whipped cream. While it was a good dining experience I'm not sure we would go back or recommend it to out of towners. It was just slightly underwhelming.
