Spago Las Vegas Exterior

Spago Las Vegas serves California-style cuisine of Chef Wolfgang Puck with a daily-changing menu. It is part of the huge Puck empire with 6 different restaurants in Vegas alone. This location was in the Forum Shops at Caesars. We ate in the less formal cafe section for a quick afternoon meal.
Decor, Vibe РIndoor patio dining in the casual caf̩, and a large more formal interior highly decorated dining room. Big pizza oven and bar. Lots of people watching in the patio with tourists and locals of all ages.

Picks:

Spago Las Vegas Bread Basket

Nice Bread Selection

Spago Las Vegas Blognaise pasta

Garganelli Pasta a la Bolognaise ($24) Braised Beef, Roasted Double Blanched Garlic, Plum Tomatoes, Ricotta Cheese and Italian Parsley was pretty meaty and made for a hearty dish. Lots of ground up steak in a red sauce with fresh pasta.

Spago Las Vegas Pasta

Kids Cheesy Parmesan Pasta ($6.95) was very good. Quality yet simple thin spageti type noodles with lots of cheese.

OK:

Spago Las Vegas Margherita pizza

Margherita Pizza ($14) Mozzarella, Fontina, Parmesan , Goat Cheese with Garden Tomatoes and Basil was almost like a flatbread style pizza. Edge was slightly crispy, but most was soft yet not soggy. Cheese quality was ok but not great. The top pizzas like Gialina’s have nothing to worry about.

Pans:
None

The bread basket had some pretty good selections. Service was pretty average, with our server acting pretty distant. Spago served up some decent food at pretty typical mid range prices. If you are shopping in the Forums shops and looking for decent food, this place is a no brainer. Wines by the glass from $8. Kid’s menu available.

    We went to the main restaurant and had a 5-star experience. Review below if you’re interested…

    Amazing meal! We have dined at many fine restaurants in Vegas, but this one is the best. Outstanding food, friendly atmosphere (our waiter, Aaron, was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, and made our experience even better). We were fortunate enough to get to talk with Chef Eric Klein for a bit, he’s really friendly, and made us a richly-flavored pasta dish with truffles and mushrooms. My wife is allergic to wheat and dairy, and both the chef and our waiter were very respectful of those restrictions, making a gluten-free and dairy-free meal (plus sorbet dessert) that my wife called “heavenly.” For our entree, we had the best steaks we’d ever eaten, and we’ve been to a number of incredible restaurants around the world. Spago might be expensive, but it’s worth it!
