FIRST CLASS ITALIAN RESTAURANT
We made reservations in advance from our home in Florida about 2 weeks in before our Las Vegas visit. Lupo was impressive with text and phone calls to confirm reservations and to see if any food restrictions. I had the Chicken Parmigiana which was delicious and a plate full large portion. It was accompanied by a glass of Lupo Chardonnay. For dessert, enjoyed the tiramisu. Excellent dinner, good service and good atmosphere.
Great service ! Waiter was very polite and suggested a few
Great service ! Waiter was very polite and suggested a few drinks to us. The food was also amazing. I tried the agnolotti short rib pasta. Very rich in flavor , I will definitely be going back !
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service. One of the best meals we experienced this trip. We went to celebrate our 10th anniversary and even got a surprise at the end of the meal. Will definitely return on our next trip.
My daughter and I had an excellent meal here after a show. The pizza was excellent. I got the wagyu ribeye cap and it was phenomenal. Service was also great. Highly recommend this place.
Dine in- went for dinner with friends and had the best
Dine in- went for dinner with friends and had the best service staff. Menu was easy yet still had a nice flare of extra to it.Pasta was perfectly cooked.We has the truffle ravioli, clam linguine, squid ink pasta and prosciutto pizza.All were yum. Noise level highDress code casual
I went to Lupo with a bunch of friends. Without gushing for hundreds of words, I am going to keep it very short. I had the beet salad and ravioli's. Without question I can say that both dishes far exceeded expectations. It is not often that I go into a celebrity chef's establishment and walk out completely satisfied. Along with the outstanding meal, the service too beat all expectations for such a busy place. Highly, highly recommended!
We have been wanting to try one of Wolfgang Pucks
We have been wanting to try one of Wolfgang Pucks restaurants and chose to visit Lupo as our first one based on some pleasant reviews from our friends. We visited on a Saturday at 9pm (we had a reservation for a party of 4). The restaurant was packed and lively. We ordered the Focaccia Della Casa (was not available), Agnolotti del Plin, Crispy New Potatoes and Lobster Fra Diavolo. Service started off really great but fell short after we received bread in replacement of the focaccia. It took an hour for us to receive our dinners and we rarely saw our main waitress until it was time for the bill. The pastas we ordered were good but the time it took for us to receive our food really made this an unpleasant experience. We will likely not return to this restaurant as there are so many places to try in Vegas and the service here didn't hit the mark for us. Our friends had a better experience at this particular restaurant about a year ago so maybe we just happen to visit on an off day.
What an overrated, blowhard bunch of fluff!!! Food very
What an overrated, blowhard bunch of fluff!!! Food very expensive, drinks even more.Spent $106 on 3 drinks and a pizza!Service was the worst, although food and drinks good.Nothing special here.We heard it took months to get into the restaurant, yet 1/3 of the place was empty from beginning to end.Waitstaff prevented from splitting check into more than 3 ways! I was vocal that we were members of a Board, and that the policy would hurt the waitstaff. They finally relented...NEVER AGAIN!
We have been dining at this restaurant since Jason Jones
We have been dining at this restaurant since Jason Jones and Chef Shawn Giordano were at the helm. Over the years we have seen, many managers move up from Lupo to other WGP Las Vegas establishments. With that we got to know the new gm and it always was ok and we still felt welcome and enjoyed our time there. Now though, it has completely lost its, Wow! New management is not welcoming, in fact quite awful. The food is nowhere near where it used to be. Since the current new chef we have noticed quite a downgrade in food taste, appearance and quality. The service is bad, almost a feeling like the servers are uncomfortable or unhappy. The current chicken parm is thick cut and not flavorful. They even got rid of the best drink on the menu, the pear martini. Just sad, and reminiscing about the good old days. If Brad sees this, we love and miss you! And pastry chef Angela, your deserts will live in infamy, you are also loved and missed! If I could picket outside, my sign would read bring back BRAD!
Lackluster feel, decent food
We made reservations months in advance because we were attending the Michel Jackson One show at Mandalay. My husband and I were escorted to a weird back/ side room that was drab and boring. No art on the walls, didn’t feel fancy or special. We were very disappointed in the atmosphere as we were excited to dress up for a nice dinner and show. The ravioli and squid ink pasta were good, but the bread we ordered was just hard and had very little oil on top and none was brought to accompany. Service was decent but we just left feeling disappointed in our experience for what we paid and what we felt we’d get by looking at the photos. My husband told them it was my birthday and there was no specific acknowledgment as well like most restaurants. We would have selected a “nicer” place for my special birthday dinner and a show. My husband just kept saying “I feel like I’m eating in my grandma’s basement “
First time trying a Wolfgang Puck restaurant and definitely
First time trying a Wolfgang Puck restaurant and definitely met our expectations! Made a reservation for 14 people for 8pm on a Saturday night for President's Day weekend. A couple of folks were lagging to make it on time but they eventually sat us after 15 minutes with half our group there. Luckily this spot is located right next to self parking so no delays in finding this spot. Its pretty nice inside and the bar looks fully stocked with the best brands. Our waiter and food runner were very good and waters were always filled.Food: - Grand Platter of Italian Meats & Cheeses (Charcuterie Board) $37 - great appetizer with your wine. Everything was really good but one of the salamis was spicy af. I almost didn't order this bc of the price but then again, this is the same price as found in Eataly at Park MGM so it's all good xD just go for it if you haven't had charcuterie in a while- Grille Colorado Lamb Chops - holy sheep this is the best lamb I've had in a while. Medium Rare is the best for this and it turned out perfect. Super soft and easy to cut. Did not have the gamey musty taste that I've experience else well- Agnolotti del Plin with Braised Short Rib - first time having this pasta and to me it was basically ravioli. The short rib was amazing and I plan to come back just for this with some red wine on my next visit. Ciao for now!
We ordered linguine alle vongole which was delicious and the bread is amazing. The pasta bolognese was actually quite bad. Lemon tart really good. Service is good but VERY, VERY slow. You need at least two hours to have supper.
I had the most extraordinary experience in fine dining,
I had the most extraordinary experience in fine dining, than I've had in Many years to date.The waiter, Eric, was attentive, animated and on his game. From his solid recommendations of specialty drinks, coc.espresso martinis, to Caesar salad and a meatball hors d'oeuvres, to the main dish, bolognese, perfection.Treat yourself. You will feel like a Queen and King!
My wife and I dined at Lupo on Valentine's Day 2023.
I was disappointed overall by the experience. The food was okay, nothing bad, but nothing special either. The service was spotty, (long wait between courses). I think my disappointment comes from high expectations, given the high prices and the name associated with the restaurant. Sadly, the food failed to impress, the service failed to be special, and the prices left me feeling taken advantage of. Honestly, I think you could have a better experience at your neighborhood Italian restaurant in most people's hometown at a fraction of the cost.
Mood: Valentines Date with MyselfLocation: Mandalay
Mood: Valentines Date with MyselfLocation: Mandalay BayOrder: Caesar Salad, Wagyu steak, polenta, tiramisu, Grand Marnier Price: $160.40 + GratuityReservation: No, seated at barThis is a nice, sit down restaurant with plenty of service personnel and lots of fine dining touches. All tables were reserved, so I sat at the bar. My waitress seemed too busy to be beneficial except when I placed my order. Thankfully, the male bartender was nice and helpful.I was "discouraged" from ordering the steak with a warning "it takes 45 minutes to prep steaks." Not a problem to me. Just meant I had to order an appetizer. Salad came out quickly with fresh shaved Parmesan cheese. I appreciate the heavy utensils used and replaced with each course.The steak was tender and delicious with salt flakes on top. The grilled onions and peppers and green sauce was not needed and seemed only added for aesthetics. The polenta good, but would have preferred a baked potato option.The tiramisu was also good, not spectacular though. It was a little deconstructed and the ladyfingers barely tasted of espresso. Overall, the meal was good but overpriced (in my opinion) for what you get.
Great Food, not so much as far as customer satisfaction
It was our son's 18th birthday, and he wanted to visit Vegas and eat at celebrity restaurants. As we were staying at Delano, this restaurant seemed perfect before the Mad Apple show. It also happened to be on the day of the big Chief's playoff game and we are from Kansas City. We arrived at 3rd quarter and asked for a table where we could watch the game from. That should not have been a problem as the center circle bar had large screen TVs mounted all around. They seated us at a great table with views of two televisions. We then asked if they could put the game on instead of a hockey game and tennis match. We were told no as not everyone wanted to watch the game. We could barely see a third television and told to feel free to walk over to the bar if we wanted a better view while we ate, yet the sound was on throughout the restaurant. At least 20 other patrons came in and asked for the same thing. There were some tables on the other side where people could sit, and the bar refused to break up a reserved table for 20 (8 small tables pushed together) right in front of the game so people who wanted to watch the game could. Several couples left without dining, others placed to go orders instead of being able to enjoy dinner at the restaurant they reserved simply due to a bartender not wanting to change a television station upon request of 20 paying customers. We opted to skip apps and dessert, in order to get back to see the end of the game in an area that wanted our business. It certainly put a damper on what could have been a sensational meal. Our server was good, the asian salad was great, seafood linguine was outstanding and the pasta was delightful. With so many great options, we won't dine here again.
I ate here for dinner while on a work trip in Las Vegas. The service was excellent. I had a glass of wine with my appetizer salad. It was a perfect portion of salad. The greens were fresh and well-dressed. I got the ravioli. The filing was soft and flavorful without overpowering the sauce. The serving was sized appropriately that I was able to eat it all without feeling overstuffed. I did not have dessert, but did have a second glass of wine with my entree. I was very happy with this meal and highly recommend it. I ate at another highly-regarded italian restaurant at another hotel, and would choose Lupo over the other if I had to eat at one of them again.
Delicious food with excellent service
Located in the middle of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, this is an interesting restaurant with an open air concept inside . I recommend reservations as it gets busy. The service was excellent - very attentive and knowledgeable . The focaccia bread was homemade and so tasty. The limoncello mule was unique and tasty. All of the dishes we tasted were delicious with homemade pasta. We celebrate a family birthday and they brought a birthday dessert to the table . The prices were expensive but not outrageous for Las Vegas. This was the perfect dinner choice for the Michael Jackson One.
Slow service and average food
The restaurant has nice atmosphere, but the service was quite slow. And the food was just average, especially for the price. Was excited to try the meatball appetizer, and it was underwhelming. Overall, would not recommend.
I wish I would have taken pictures. 10-15 minutes to get waited on. Waiter seemed knowledgeable. My wife had the cheese ravioli. These were thin and barely any cheese. I had the tagliatelle in basil pesto. Noodles weren’t cooked thoroughly, pesto sauce ok. I enjoy lemon flavored desserts. The lemon dessert here extremely tart , not enjoyable. Portions ok. The waiter would disappear through out the meal. They never refilled my drink. They took my glass before dessert came. We had our card ready to pay . We asked for the check and immediately put in our card and waiter disappeared. 15 minutes later we had to flag him down to pay. He actually told us he asked is busser to get our check. I guess we weren’t welcomed. We definitely will never visit any wolf gang puck establishment again. Regards Michael
The restaurant looked fun and cool, but right away, it was
The restaurant looked fun and cool, but right away, it was very uncomfortable. It was a very loud atmosphere. In addition, The tables are so close together that my elbow could bump the chair at the table next to us. When people passed the table, they would brush against us. It was very intrusive with how close they were together. The server was very nice, but there were so many runners and not enough servers which caused a delay in service. The water and beverage refills were quick, and I enjoyed that. We got a bread appetizer, and it was good. My mother had the shrimp linguine and she thought it was really good and was surprised by how much shrimp was in the dish. I got the cheese ravioli and was not impressed. And to add, sadly, I ended up getting food poisoning and was sick the entire evening. Needless to say, I'm not going to be returning.
Great food - the sea bass was devine!!Terrific staff , very
Great food - the sea bass was devine!!Terrific staff , very attentive Lovely ambiance Will definitely be back!!!"
Hands down one of the best restaurants I went to while in
Hands down one of the best restaurants I went to while in Vegas. Great atmosphere, amazing food and staff was friendly! Amazing cocktail menu as-well. Surprisingly, Lupo was one of the cheaper restaurants we dined at! Would definitely recommend.
Lupo's is a high-end Italian restaurant inside Mandalay Bay.
It may be high-end, but it's not uptight or stuffy. The staff is very friendly and personable without being intrusive.My husband and I went to Lupo's recently for our wedding anniversary and the evening could not have been better. The hostess was very welcoming. I'd put a note that we were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary and she wished us a happy anniversary when we checked in.Another hostess sat us and she wished us a happy anniversary, too. Our server Nick was excellent throughout our dining experience. He was very engaging and answered all our questions without hesitation.We started our evening with the grand meat & cheese platter, plus a couple of cocktails. Hubby ordered the barrel aged negroni and I ordered the barrel aged old fashioned. They were the smoothest, best tasting drinks we've had from just about ANY restaurant. They were well balanced and superbly made. The meat & cheese platter was very elegantly displayed. There were 3 types of cheese, 4 types of meat, olives with garlic slices, pickled peppers, candied pistachios, and honeycomb. It was beautiful to look at. The meats and cheeses complimented each other perfectly and were very flavorful.Hubby ordered a main entree of Mediterranean Seabass in a zesty marinara sauce with mussels and shrimp. I ordered a 19oz double cut pork chop that was so tender it could nearly be cut with a fork. It was thick, juicy and had the perfect amount of charring. We ordered a "Caprese Torta" for dessert. It was basically a flourless chocolate cake with whipped cream, pistachio gelato, and strawberries and raspberries. The chef even sent out a lovely Pana Cota dessert with strawberries and wrote "Happy 7th Anniversary." FYI, this is considered an Italian restaurant, but there is something to please every pallet from chicken to fish to steaks, pork, lamb and of course pizza and pastas. Overall, this dining experience was definitely in our top 5 experiences. We've dined at establishments that were more costly, especially in California, but none have been better than Lupo's. We had a very enjoyable dining experience and look forward to adding Lupo's to our dining rotation.
I planned a 40th Birthday trip in Las Vegas and one of it
I planned a 40th Birthday trip in Las Vegas and one of it is a Dinner in Lupo. I Reserved 11 people for my birthday dinner, we got there and they told us they cant serve us because their system is down, ok its down but can you atleast give the courtesy call those people that reserved?? 11 people in las vegas is hard to accomodate without reservation. We tried a lot of resto around and we couldve find a resto for 11 person w/o reservation so we ended up not having dinner and just eating wherever since all of us is hungry. Thank You Lupo for ruining my 40th Birthday Dinner.
The service was great with friendly staff.
The food came out super fast, which was great because we stopped there for dinner before a concert and we left on time. The food was delicious.
Excellent food! Outstanding service! They honored our
Excellent food! Outstanding service! They honored our reservation time & seated us right away. They even brought out a bday dessert! Every dish was amazing, not a drop left on any plate. 10/10 would recommend & revisit!
We had a great time and the staff worked together so well.
The vibe was amazing. Our server was very attentive and explained everything to us...
The food was excellent.
The chicken parm was a bit burnt but Janet said it tasted great. Ravioli spot on. Calamari and meatballs. Delicious.
Went there with a Party of 9.
We was quite loud and drinking lots nonetheless customer service was on point. Food was fantastic and experience was great. Would recommend to anyone looking for a high quality meal.
Another great meal in Vegas from Chef Puck
Had wonderful wine by the glass, a spectacular (but pricey) steak dinner (Eye of Ribeye) and to-die-for dessert (Italian donuts). Would highly recommend if you are at the Mandalay Bay Resort.
Great food, service and you should get the cheesecake
Great dinner saturday night. Reserved table at 5 and got right in. Waiter was great: attentive and never too far away. Group of 3 all got pasta meals: everyone loved theirs. We also got the brownie, cheesecake and the donut holes for desserts. All good but the cheesecake was incredible, like light cream turned into a solid form . . . with strawberries. Mmmmm.
Great food. Great service
I went here as a party of 8. Service was prompt and courteous. The food was tasty and very well presented. We tried almost every appetizer on the menu and also tried several of the main courses. Everyone said the food was really good. I thought the wine was also good as well. If you are at the Mandalay Bay hotel suggest trying this place.
Best Experience!!!! Fantastic Food!!! We loved Everything!!!!
Really great food. Great service. Service was really attentive to details. Ensuring great experience and well attended
I came here with my friends for my birthday. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the service was good. I wasn’t a huge fan of the food. It was okay but I think it’s overpriced.
Excellent food, drinks and service
Everything was tasty, limoncello mule and house made limoncello were delicious. We hopped to 3 other bars in Mandalay Bay including Skyfall where the limoncello was terrible or they didn’t have it. We ended up circling back because my friend really we wanted more and he also got the meatballs for a snack and raved about them
I’m a complete foodie and so is my family. I know my way around the kitchen. I would say I have intermediate skills when it comes to cooking. I was totally let down when it came to the food at a famous “celebrity chief’s” restaurant. I’m not a culinary trained cook in the kitchen but I could yield literally just everything my family and I ate at this restaurant. I’m not against paying no for something that’s worth it while on vacation. But this was extremely disappointing. Maybe my sights were set too high but this was way under my expectations for the money. Maybe we just ordered the wrong food????
Wife and I just had a great dinner at Lupo in Las Vegas. The food, all homemade including pasta and bread was outstanding. We sat at the bar and had a few cocktails, apps and dinner. The meat and cheese board was delicious and a nice portion for two. Everything was truly delicious and this restaurant is worth going out of the way for at the Mandalay Bay. We were also greeted by Gianni the GM who is absolutely outstanding, warm and welcoming. Their desserts are super good as well. You will not be disappointed here.
Great Good but Bad Service
The food and flavors were fantastic. But the service was pretty bad. We sat for 11 minutes before my server even asked if we wanted drinks or appetizers. Then we had to flag him down to make our meal orders. It seemed like we were inconveniencing him. The helper staff was friendly, but kept passing us by and not stopping to refill waters, etc. - which was very annoying. This restaurant has the potential to be great, but needs a manager (or two) circulating to make sure the patrons are being served and treated well.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. The Osso Buco was excellent as was the Pappardelle Bolognese. Cocktails were made to perfection. The wine list offered excellent bottles. We selected a Malbec which paired perfectly with dinner. Dessert options were also fantastic. We enjoyed everything about our experience here and would definitely recommend it to others.
We got the ciabatta bread for our appetizer.
We ordered the Shrimp Linguine and the Chicken Parmesan. They were both good but I thought the Shrimp Linguine was better. Overall really good Italian restaurant.
My friends and I decided to step out last Saturday and
My friends and I decided to step out last Saturday and treat ourselves with a nice dinner at Lupo and we had such a good time! Shoutout to our server Tyler Simmerman for delivering a unforgettable experience and recommending the best dishes! Beautiful venue with better tasting food!
