    Hi restaurant at Aria is also bright but great food.
    I have a reservation for 4/15 with an outside table requested.
    I'm not sure what they changed as I do not think Circo had a patio.

    MGM needs to fire their whole design team. Looks like something that should be inside CC if you ask me...

    It is supposed to be the new small plate concept- that everybody shares---so I wonder if the tacky design is suppose to appeal to the younger club crowd. They can take pictures of the food, send them to each other and then share the various plates.

    Sure is a big change from the Picasso decor-----

    I have not been to the restaurant but by looking at the pictures it looks pretty bad. I doubt it was gathered towards club crowd since the look of it is hardly hip or modern. I heard they were doing a tapas restaurant since Julian Serrano is doing so well over at Aria.

    I walked by Friday night. I wanted to cry. Circo was my favorite. What were they thinking!?! I hope the food is better than the aesthetics of the place. It looks like someone ate Candy Land and it didn't settle well in their stomach.

    Kinda like how I felt when they closed the Fontana bar. I'll try it out for sure because it is Bellagio (and I seem to play craps so well there :) but that exterior is a little loud.

    Dang we walked right by there on 4/2 and the walls were still up.

    Looks like we just missed it.

    Have reservations there for 5/9 but after looking at those pictures, I'm not sure I want to go. Hopefully the food is better than the decor as my g/f is insisting on us trying it out.

    We were there Thursday. Night.
    Host was able to secure a lakeside table on patio.
    In my opinion,the decor is not as tacky as the picture represents.
    It is bright and multi colored similar to his restaurant at Aria.Julian Serrano was there and stopped at a couple tables.
    The restaurant was almost full when we were there at 8:45 on Thursday night.

    The patio view is different and much more panoramic than the side view from Prime,Olives or Yellowtail.

    Service was outstanding but the best part was the food.Wife and I split several plates each.
    All were enjoyable but one was incredible.
    I believe it was called seven and seven.
    It is a lobster and gnocchi combination with a great sauce.
    This place will definitely be on the list for next trip.

    Hi.

    I agree about the decor...I think it looks better in person. I ate there at the bar last night while the fight was going on and the food was amazing. My favorite was the red wine risotto. Also had a "rose and rye" drink that was very good. I will definitely be adding this to my restaurant rotation!
