Pinot Brasserie, Las Vegas: food is uneven

Debra Bjoeralt | Jan 7, 2002 10:50 PM

My husband thought the tasting menu was worth the price, as he enjoyed every course and was able to sample six items from the menu, some with a special twist, such as the lobster bisque (not on the regular menu) and the creme brulee (flavored).

I had the fish: cooked exactly right, through but moist on the inside and a little crispy on the outside. It was on a bed of green beans (my favorite veg) with a wonderful reduction flavored with truffle.

The service was attentive but never disruptive; that was the best part, IMO.

We returned the next evening with my parents, who wanted to try the place we were raving about. I had another fish dish, and the fish was good, but it rested on pasta in a cream sauce that was very gloppy and ruined the fish. Anything that was light on butter, cheese or oil was fresh and lively tasting. My husband and father shared an iced platter of shellfish and my husband was very ill all night, but this is the second time and now we think it may be an allergy, not food poisoning. My father was fine and thought the shellfish, except for the shrimp, had good flavor.

Unfortunately, because of the illness, we were unable to make it to LOS. Next time?
