“Great tapas and wine”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We visited Serrano on a Friday night and the place was very busy. In spite of that, our service was extremely efficient. The tapas came quickly, even when we ordered more during the meal. The sommelier helped us choose an excellent wine and the sangria was quite tasty as well. Our waitress helped us select some tapas that she said people don't often select, all of it delicious. Ours included a refreshing romaine salad, ceviche, piquillo peppers, bomba, chicken croquetas, oxtail, sliders, and black rice. The black rice was a bit disappointing, but only because I'm not a big squid fan. The food isn't cheap, but is well made. A fun experience was had by all!

“Everything was delicious!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We went for an early supper and were quickly seated and received very attentive service from all the servers around. We let our server guide us in our choice of tapas - a great recommendation. The sommelier guided the choice of wine. We enjoyed every single bite. Loved the colours and decor - attention to details.

“Food brilliant but service was awful”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ate here on the 26th. We got this as part of a theatre package as we were going to see Zarkana (the cirque du soleil show) at the Aria.

The package included a $39 tasting menu, with an additional $19 per person wine pairing option.

First the positives. The food was absolutely amazing. The starters the main and desert were some of the best food I had eaten in Vegas. You have to remember that this is a tapas restaurant so portions
are small but I thought the food was excellent.

Now the negative. The service we received was awful. From our waiter to our sommelier. First of all it took an eternity for our drinks to arrive. I had also asked for the wine pairing option from the sommelier, however the waiter decided that he would take our wine glasses away anyway. So when the starters came out and I asked where our wine was the waiter explained that no one had told him! The sommelier then rushed over and gave us the quickest overview of the wine imaginable. After this it was all downhill and both my wife and I felt that our waiter was extremely rude and was in a rush to get us out.

The service ruined what should have been a wonderful experience especially with the food. I hope chef Serrano addresses the service issues in his restaurant as until he does I would not eat in any of his restaurants again. Such a shame as the food was wonderful.

“Some excellent tapas dishes with great service”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch, but the menu is the same for dinner. We ordered 7-8 dishes for four people. The octopus was tender and flavorful. The chorizo and mashed potatoes was close to a perfect bite. The steak and cheese was heavenly. The tuna was tasty. The biggest disappointment was the expensive Spanish ham. It was good, and the accompanying tomato relish was delightful, but overall, it was underwhelming. The rabbit lollipop had a fabulous crust, but the leg itself was a tad dry. Service was terrific. We would back again and focus on the dishes which were awesome.

“High end Tapas restaurant”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This is a tapas style restaurant within the Aria Casino facility. We had a meal here the evening we arrived. The menu is varied and we had 3 dishes between 2 which we found plenty. The service was efficient and friendly. Be warned that prices for champagne and cocktails are quite healthy!
