Mavens Overview

Red Square at Mandalay Bay is more a Russian themed restaurant rather than a Russian restaurant. The menu has plenty or Vodkas and Caviar choices, but the bulk of the menu would feel right at home in most Steakhouses on the Strip.

The internet buzz on the food is mixed, not too many rave reviews, more than a few so-so reviews. The main reason to come here is for the high priced Vodka cocktails, and if you really want to splurge, buy a bottle and drink it in their special cold room, complete with solid ice bar.


Internet Buzz

We got the five course menu tasting starting with the caviar it was good a nice burst of flavor. second course was steak tartar, absolutely loved i will definitely order again the presentation was beautiful .. yum Then came the salad with a light dressing perfect. The intermezzo was a tiny shot glass with balls of sorbet and champagne poured over it. Next came my beef stroganoff, this is heaven in a bowl, filet mignon slices and fresh pasta sooooo good. Then came desert, huge creme brulees amazing.

Very cool and trendy spot. Tons of overpriced vodkas to taste as samplers or cocktails. The lemoncello was fabulous.

Going along with the themed decor, the food selection includes several types of caviar, along with blini, Chicken Kiev, and Stroganoff. Atmosphere is laid back and casual. Everyone is dressed from jeans to dresses depending on where they're coming from or planning to go to after. I wouldn't call this a destination to go out of ones way for, but as a definite worthwhile go-between on the way to somewhere else.

Red Square was the perfect example of the facade that is Las Vegas. Beautiful themed ambiance, with little substance to back it up. The menu has pages upon pages of cocktails, and on the surface it appears impressive. But read the descriptions, and it reveals cheap ingredients. Moskovskaya vodka is listed in several drinks. Sounds impressive? It's that $8 bottle from Trader Joe's. You can have a shot of it in a cocktail here for $13. Worth it?

If you are a martini lover, you need to experience this place. Fantastic atmosphere, great selection of vodka and a heavy pour to be sure, so be careful. Obviously pricey, being Vegas, but worth the experience. If you are in a large group, splurge and buy a bottle of vodka and enjoy it in the freezer while wearing fur coats, hats and gloves provided by the bar.

Then after the drink selection the waiter said "We're not really a russian restaurant we don't serve Russian food. Just it's themed that way."...The kicker on this place and being a LAS Vegasan I can attest to this. THey have the best Creme Brulee on the strip. Hands down. They serve it with two chocolate sticks which threw me off. But in all It was great. Pricey yes. Worth it. Yes

The bar is, indeed, made of ice. You can put your drink down on the ice, which is supposed to keep it cold. This would be cool if all the drinks were served in rocks glasses or tumblers, but we were ordering the vodka martinis, which were served in martini glasses. Our drinks didn't get close enough to the ice bar to benefit from the coldness. The drinks were great though, and I Ioved the blue cheese stuffed olive in mine.

It's really a steak house (more American) than anything else. The food is well as the desserts. If you want to hit up a place that has a wide variety of vodka....this is your place. Not necessarily a place to go for some good food

I ordered hazelnut crusted australian back of lamb sweet potato flan, sauteed asparagus, sour cherry vishnyovka sauce and my boyfriend got osco busco which I don't know if they still have on the menu but both where very good! And the service was nice as well at the atmosphere!

The vodkatinis here are fantastic. Their goat cheese salad is the most incredible thing I've ever had. My steak was amazing. The vodka flights were quite interesting. And the service was incredible. I really wish I could have gone into their vodka freezer though. Too bad it's so expensive.
