Fleur , not so nice

This was easily below par for Vegas restaurants. The staff was pretentious, the kitchen out of sync. Smoked to order ribs? Isn't that an oxymoron?Ribs are usually slow cooked and these were basted and steamed with some smoke flavoring.(ok steamed to order) Ceviche arrived tasting of nothing.... had to ask for lime and lemon to give it something. (Could have used some salt too).Tart flambe on the menu came as a flatbread pizza with no asparagus, no truffle and if there was bacon I did not find it. That's 3 of 5 ingredients that were listed in the description missing. Cocktails were spilled on the table (by staff) but no effort to clean it up. $15 for a basket of bread.... pecking duck with soggy skin.... Come on..... Chef likes to roll on his name, time to visit your restaurant Chef Heubert.

  1. Our experience was not nearly this bad, but it certainly wasn't special- and for the price, it should have felt a little special.

    The service was on par with our favorite local brewpub, and we rarely spend more than $50 there for the two of us.

    We had the seared foie gras, which was incredible, but I wouldn't swear that I can't recreate it at home. Same with the tuna tacos (only I am completely sure I can make those at home). I didn't like the braised hamachi, but I do hate teriyaki flavors. DH did like it. The chicken croquettes were only ok, as was the fig flambe.

    1. We haven't been back since it became Fleur, but our FdL experience was a $600 "meh", at best.

      It just seemed like the entire FOH staff was confused. Some tables got bread, some didn't, we were almost finished with our first course before our champagne arrived (an honest 20 minutes after we ordered it), no somm to chat with, menu confusion, etc. The food was pretty solid, but the FOH staff lacks any sort of polish or finesse.

      1. Does anyone have an email contact for this place?manager?

            thanks; I was actually looking for an email, but couldn't find one.
            You think it wouldn't be that difficult to find one.

              yeah, i know you wanted the e-mail but at least that link provides the GM's name. i'd call and ask for his e-mail. i also noticed a Facebook link - you could check their page to see if there's an option for messages.
