Aureole in Mandalay Bay             
      
Month Visited: 01/04 - Undecided - Dinner

Meal was fine, if pricey for the quality. Our dinner was interupted when a fellow diner suffered a seizure. Also to cougars at the bar kept coming on to us when we were trying to leave.    11284

Aureole in Mandalay Bay             
                  
Month Visited: 11/03 - Undecided - Dinner

Nice, but I've had much nicer. The most impressive thing is the wine tower and the wine fairy, but kind of gimmicky. From the outside of the restaurant it seems really elegant, but inside is a let down. Seating is unimaginative, cheap looking, and uncomfortable. The decor is bland and the seating is not intimate at all, but rather seemed designed for large business meetings. The ambiance reminds me of a cafeteria, albiet with really high ceilings. The lighting seemed too bright for dinner. I almost expected to see a powerpoint presentation on one of the large blank white walls! (hint, not ideal for romantic/special occasions)
The menu is creative and appealling. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed almost all aspects of our meal. The bread was not impressive or even freah tasting, and I love bread so I was disapointed, but it wasn't terrible. The portions are nice because I don't like to get overstuffed which I easily do if there are delicious foods presented to me. The only part I disliked was the dessert. It came out and looked glorious and lovely, but it was frozen! I double checked the menu and there was no mention of it being a frozen treat. It was late into the evening so I suspect they ran out of "ready" desserts and had to reach into the freezer and present me with a backup dessert and garnish it with fresh berries and whatnot to make it look decievingly lovely. I wish they had given me the option of choosing another dessert in lieu of this icy one because it left the meal ending on a bad note.

Overall, very pricey ($200+ for tasting menu plus wine for two), but a nice splurge on occasion.

Aureole in Mandalay Bay             
      
Month Visited: 04/03 - Bad Meal - Dinner

For the money Aureole is horrible. The food is worth $20 bucks a plate and they get you for $100 a plate. When I eat in a place like that, the service should be the best. Our service was better than you would get at an OutBack but not as good as fine dining should be. Disappointing is how I would rate Aureole. Finally, if you eat there be prepared to shell out at least $100 per person and leave hungry.    7331

Month Visited: 01/03 - Good Meal - Dinner

I'm rather surprised by the some of the negative reviews of this restaurant.

I am a very picky eater and have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world and this place ranks up there with best.

We chose this place to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday.

My wife and I experienced the best service of any place that we've been to and it was neither snobby or pretentious.

We didn't like the original table we got, so we asked for one with a view of the wine tower and immediately got seated at the table we wanted without question.

My wife fell in love with the olive bread and the assistant waiter had a loaf gift wrapped for her in a bag, (without even asking).

All my wife said was that she loved the bread.

We ordered the lobster and were pleased to find that we didn't have to wrestle with the shell.

Mind you I was surprised by the small bathroom considering the size of the place.

I wasn't made to feel cheap because I didn't order a bottle of wine off the PAD,(wine causes me migraine headaches).

We ordered wine by the glass for my wife and were still treated like royalty.

I gave the staff a 30 percent tip which which was the highest percent tip that I have ever given in a restaurant.

They were that exceptional.

I gave the assistant that helped us out an extra $20.00!

He was that good.

We enjoyed consistently excellent food (presentation, service and quality) although Aureole was disappointing in that the wine list had lots of variety but relatively little depth in terms of great (Californian) vintages. This may have been a function of the laughably snotty attitude of the "sommelier du jour" from whom we were forced to beg for additional information.

Aureole in Mandalay Bay             

Month Visited: 04/02 - Good Meal - Dinner

We ate at the more expensive and intimate Swan Court area - the main dining room seemed a bit noisy. Ask for the wine list, and they bring a touchscreen laptop (like an oversized PDA) to your table, where you can peruse the extensive wine list. And I mean extensive - if you want a German Reisling Spatlese, for example, they'll have 20 different kinds!

Food is well presented, though frankly, tastewise it was excellent, but not exceptional.

This is my second review of Aureole. It's been 3 years since my last review. I'm happy to say that there are many improvements. The wine list remains the best in Vegas. The menu selections are now more interesting and the portions larger. The food was also served hot, unlike my previous 2 experiences there. Desserts should not be missed. The price of admission is a bargain as fine dining in Vegas goes.    3432

One of the best meals of my life. Top the bottom, this place delivers. It's pricey, but worth every penny if you enjoy quality, imaginitive cuisine. Some of the items are aggressive (no steak and potatoes), but chose the tasting menu and have an experience. Of course, the wine selection and presentation are extraodinary.    1951
