Mavens Overview: Sensi
Sensi at Bellagio attempts to solve the problem of dining companions that want different cuisines. Sensi offers Italian, Asian, American and Seafood cuisine. As noted in the internet buzz below, the restaurant suffers from an identity crisis and seems to fall flat. Not too many rave, or Wow reviews. Perhaps Sensi would rate higher if they focused on one cuisine.
The two menu items that stand out in the internet buzz are the tempura asparagus and house-made ginger-ale.
Internet Buzz: Sensi
- I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. It's quiet and private so you can have a meal and hold a conversation.
- I had the prix fixe menu for $60 which comes with an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert. This is a great deal since appetizers are $15-25 and the entrees are $30-50.
- the decor is nice, I've always had a thing for see-thru kitchens. the entire kitchen is housed in glass so the patrons can see the entire cooking process. not like a show, but if you wanted to see how they made the naan, you're able to watch.
- I really expected much more from a 4 star restaurant. You walk in and immediately your senses are overwhelmed. You walk through a maze of kitchens to your table and your struck almost immediately that this place seems to struggle with its identity. It wants to be asian, italian and pacific rim all rolled into one package, but it just falls flat.
- Their homemade ginger ale is AMAZING!
- I decided on the sashimi combo and hubby got the Bento box. My dish consisted of a variety of raw and rare fish. Everything was good, but didn't really knock my socks off. The Bento box was quite interesting. On that day, it had samosas, crab fried rice with lobster claws, tuna tartare and beef teriyaki. Again, everything was tasty, but not excellent. Prices for those two items were reasonable for the quality and quantity.
- The atmosphere is stylish and relaxing (appropriate for Bellagio's Spa Tower) and the restaurant itself is beautiful. When we walked in, we passed a tank of tasty-looking lobsters, and once seated we had a view of the kitchen. Even the place settings add to the sleek, spa like decor. The colors of the dining room: muted and sophisticated.
- Ordered the tempura fried asparagus Fantastic! I wish I had some right now... A fantastic fried lobster dish with mango and micro greens; Duck pot stickers with foie gras on the side; and the Sensi fried rice. All of this was out of this world, truly delicious.
- They have four separate glass enclosed kitchens, all sat in the middle of the restaurant for all to see the Chefs do their thing. Each kitchen prepares a different cuisine: Asian, Italian, American and Seafood.
- A. had the tandoor-baked chicken in a curry butter that was indescribably tender and luscious. I had seared dayboat scallops, skewered with oxtail ravilolis. Both were utterly out of this world. We had martinis, dry and delicious. Our bartender recommended the excellent asparagus tempura as a starter.
- I had a dish of seared ginger scallops with butternut squash, oxtail raviolis and porchini foam. Weird combination of food, right? I thought so too, but Sensi managed to seamlessly meld together three seemingly different cuisines (Japanese, Indian and Italian).
- I made the mistake of ordering the chicken curry. I am a HUGE indian food fan. And while the atmosphere was plesant, service was great, and food was presented nicely, I guess the lesson learned here is, stick with indian food from hole in the wall restaurants and actual indian food. Because you won't get what you are expecting here.
- Kobe Carpaccio $19 Slices of thin meat wrapped around a potato croquette and generous shavings of parmesan. Loved the textures and flavors. Nice change from the traditional version paired with toast.
- After five years of going to many of the other fine restaurants in Las Vegas, We keep coming back to Sensi. The food is creative and exciting-- even artistic. Flavors that just say "WOW!". The service is always excellent. My only disappointment is that, due to the economy, it is no longer open for lunch. I have never, in 20 meals over five years, had a negative experience here.
