    This is hands down my favorite place to eat at! The food is always amazing. The staff is the absolute best, especially Eddie! Even if we don’t get him as our server he always goes out of his way to come over to us and say hello and ask how we are. I recommend requesting him to be server! The ambiance is wonderful whether they have live music or just music over the stereo. You definitely won’t be disappointed dining here!

    Return visit. Great food. Service as good as when we celebrated mother-in-laws 97 birthday. In on a Monday and had the piano and bass playing. Very nice. It's worth the visit, plus there is always the fun of reading all the pictures on the wall.

    The restaurant and the staff are excellent the food was commensurate with them. Wait and support staff were superb, portions were excellent flavors were spot on with no overpowering flavors. In short it was wonderful and to top it all off was a gentleman playing a harp, to perfection. It was incredible. Bravo to the staff and owners of this fine establishment

    So, we went The Bootlegger last night for a Father's Day dinner, based on reviews we've seen here in the group. It was very disappointing. My grandmother ordered the lasagna and the cheese on top was hard and crusted, not like what you'd expect from melted cheese on top of lasagna. More like it was sitting under a heat lamp since lunch. I had the veal saltimbocca. It was burned on top and dry on the inside. Similar to sitting under a heat lamp for hours. The fettuccine on the side was good but nothing crazy. The wife had the carbonara, which was really good but nothing to crave about. We ordered the hot appetizer combo which had calamari, fried ravioli and shrimp. It was the best part of the meal. Took forever for bread to arrive. The table that arrived 30 minutes after us received their bread before we did.

    Definitely not as good as it used to be. One of the specials for the evening was the lobster bisque. It was inedible . It was like sucking on a salt stick. Had to send it back. Eggplant Parm was OK but it was just warm as was the side pasta. Portions have definitely gotten smaller. Very noisy restaurant.

    This is a great option for dining when you are in Las Vegas. It is full of history, a really nice beautiful restaurant and the food was outstanding. The reviews that we read gave it 2 $$. I thought the prices were definitely higher than $$, but it was worth the extra$. We enjoyed it.

    A wonderful local spot that has been a popular local restaurant since 1949. This is way off the strip but it was nice to get away from it all for a few hours. Live music was wonderful and the food was very good.

    For my first visit, I was pleasantly surprised. The front check-In desk was so helpful in getting me seated quickly. My server, Claudia was awesome. Sher explained the history and unique recipes. After a wonderful dinner, I went to the Copa and throughly enjoyed Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns. A great evening of delicious food and outstanding entertainment. A must experience for locals and friends visiting Las Vegas. A hidden gem. I will return and become a regular!

    We have lived in LV for almost 20 yrs. This was a GEM of a find!! The food and service was fantastic!! After I misunderstood the process of making dinner reservations AND Copa Room reservations, the manager-Mark went out of his way to help me get it all straightened out so we could fit both in for the evening! NOW THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE!! He also came out to meet us at cocktails, dinner and at the show!! The food was some of the best Italian we've ever had! Its now our special place to go and to take friends!!

    Everything was great with one exception. One more person joined us so our waiter moved us to a larger table. Once he moved us he NEVER came back. We sat for over a 1/2 hour before someone else came to the table and asked if we had ordered. The original waiter came over later and apologized stating that he had FORGOTTEN us,.
