    Any reviews on ordering steaks, fish, or pasta here? I am really intrigued by the place.

    Both fish and pasta were decent. Neither blew my mind though

    The key with something like this would be the right mood/ people to do it with, as you are going to stations and doing orders.

    Under the right circumstances I would return but it has not made my list as a must do.

    I walked through there a couple of trips ago but didn't eat. Not really impressed. Sit-down prices with food court service and ambience.

    Still haven't seen it yet. Did the one in NYC right after it opened. That was a kick. It's on the list. I don't expect a life-altering experience but then again eating the same buffet for the 203rd time isn't exactly edgy.

    I've never tried the cooked meals there, but would like to. I love it for a simple breakfast though. LaVazza coffee and the associated pastry stall is, imho, a simple delicious breakfast. Ate there every day my last two trips.

    If you try the steak etc, do report back!
     
    First Comp, I couldn't NOT book it, could I?

    It would be a great place in your hometown. But, it seems a little out of place on the Vegas Strip to me. I've been to the one in Manhattan and it is really a good fit there with all of the locals who can shop there for their daily needs. In Vegas, the dining options are a little odd in that environment since it really isn't a food court or "restaurant row". Plus how many tourists would be buying bakery items such as cakes, etc. that are not exactly conducive for eating on the go or carrying with you until you get back home. Beautiful displays and some souvenir style goodies , but I doubt if many locals are coming here to do their shopping otherwise.

    This is a tough one. We stopped in for gelato ('cause it's friggin' hawt-as-hell out thar) and meandered around. IF we were there for lunch - maybe a pizza or sandwich. However, our opinion was that it does not warrant a trip. It's not a destination, given the availability of sandwiches & pizzas available closer to our base of operations. But we had to see it. Might buy something if we're up there again, but we won't travel for the sake of Eately. Feel me, dawg? :cool:

    I also remember that someone here was complaining that they didn't have anything in the way of a simple spaghetti and red sauce dish.

    I looked at some of the menus and did find a few but they were not obvious to those not familiar with the names of various pastas and sauces.

    Stopped in a couple times and was underwhelmed with the crowded food court atmosphere.
    Maybe I’m missing something but why anybody who lives in Las Vegas drive to the Strip to buy meats from the butcher shop in Park MGM?
    Definitely not worth a special trip.

    Have not tried the newest restaurant in there yet ,Manzo ,but read several good reviews.
