    We're are a group of friends who teach in Texas. We are having a girls weekend! We went to bootlegger for a nice relaxing dinner and it did not disappoint. Our waiter Richard made excellent recommendations and treated us like we were the most important people in the room, as I noticed he did with all his customers!! The food was excellent, atmosphere was charming and elegant. Loved our experience!!!

    First time here. We were sat at in the bar area, so a little noisy with people walking around looking for open chairs at the bar. Portions were well sized for the price, food was tasty. We will be back as there were other food options we want to try.

    Very poor service! Had to keep asking for refills and when the waitress said she was going to bring fresh Parmesan she only gave it to the table 2 down from me when they got their food. I had to ask for it again. Also when I had checked in, they kept taking people that came in after me and sat them right away. I will not go back and don’t recommend this over priced Italian restaurant. Left me with a bad taste. Also the waiter was rude when I asked for the Parmesan again. Go at your own risk. Lasagna did not have a lot of meat either.

    Bootlegger is a must on a trip to Vegas. The food is AMAZING. I have been coming here for years and have tried many different entrees on the menu. All delicious. The atmosphere is welcoming and feels like old Las Vegas. I enjoy the piano entertainment during dinner crooning out oldies like Frank Sinatra. You feel like the Rat Pack could enter at any moment. But the service is definitely one of the best things about Bootlegger. They make you feel so at home. Very attentive without being intrusive. A hidden gem off-strip. Try it!!
