I visited Carne Vino on my spring trip to Las Vegas and had a fantastic steak dinner. I loved it and spoke so highly of it that my friends wanted a return visit. I shared this video with people all year around. Excitement was HIGH.
Our table was in a little room off the main entrance. The table was a huge square. The privacy was fantastic, especially when one member of the party gets the giggles. There was a beautiful chandelier high above the table.
The waiter was fantastic. He knew the menu very well and was able to answer every question and help guide us on a tour of flavors which was a great tour.
Generally, Carne Vino is an expensive restaurant but I found a way around that this trip. The table shared an appetizer and salad. This worked nicely as we treated the appetizer like the tease it is supposed to be. The Prosciutto Di Parma and Insalata Romana went very well together.
I was with 5 others and sharing a bottle of wine and appetizers was a great way to start the meal. The vino may have been the star of the night…but it was time for the main course…
While the wine may have been the star of the meal, but steak should have been the co-star. Unlike my last time at Carne Vino the steak was not the highlight of the meal.
The steak you see in the video above is the steak that I shared both times I’ve been to Carne Vino – the Dry Aged Bone In Rib Eye. The steak was cooked a perfect medium and drizzled with sea salt, pepper and olive oil.
Sounds pretty good. The steak was good. It just wasn’t great like it was the last time. The steak was a little dry this time. When I sit down for a $100/person meal I want perfection. The rest of the table experimented with non-steak main courses and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The sides were also very good.
Everyone at the table had enough food and didn’t need or want dessert. The waiter treated us to some kind of nougat like dessert and an after dinner liquor. I’m not sure what I was drank, but it was a nice sipping drink and a nice way to cap off a good meal.
Overall, this time a Carne Vino was good – not great. The service was fantastic and most of dinner was very good, but the main course left a little to be desired. Having experienced a fantastic meal at Carne Vino before I think I might hold off on a return trip. There are so many great steakhouses in Las Vegas that there’s no reason to limit myself. I’d still recommend Carne Vino because the service, atmosphere and most of the food are all fantastic.
