Mavens Overview: Postrio

The restaurant serves Wolfgang Puck's famous gourmet pizzas along with a menu that changes regularly. The Internet Buzz is mostly favorable, with the patio seating often mentioned as a reason to dine at Postrio.
Stylish, contemporary décor by design firm EDG engages a minimalist aesthetic. The sleek, modern room features a rich color palate of chocolate brown, white plaster, rosewood and olive-green leather. A chef's table area serves as the centerpiece for the main dining room set within an arching wall, custom-designed lighting and a sphere-shaped chandelier. Wall-mounted fire places add a soft glow and warmth to the room. from Postrio's Web Site

- I was a bit torn on whether or not to say that this place has outdoor seating due to the fact that it's inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian, which is spectacularly themed to look like St. Mark's Square in Venice. We sat on the "patio" and even saw some pigeons walking about!
- I had the house lasagna, which was pretty good. Nothing ground shaking, but indeed a solid course. Every dish my family ordered was indeed great. However what stuck out to me, and would make me come back for more was the superb service.
- The hostess was cold almost to the point of being rude, and our waitress was also quite cold and inattentive.
- I got the steak with lobster mashed potatoes. The steak was just okay; I've had better, but the mashed potatoes were AMAZING!! There were actually huge chunks of lobster in it. The service was really good.
- This is a simple, American bistro. Great salads and simple wood oven baked pizzas and entrées that are simple and approachable (meatloaf with potato puree mushroom gravy and buttermilk onion rings). Its the kind of place that you can feel just as comfortable having a beer as a good glass of wine.
- The best part of the meal was their chocolate beignets. They're not traditional beignets. The shape reminds me of a doughnut hole but the texture and taste reminds me of a molten lava cake. Creamy hot chocolate oozing inside covered by a crispy chocolate cake outside. We had two orders of that.
- One of my pet peeves is restaurants that only serve flavoured iced teas
- The mussels were plump, fresh, and cooked perfectly. The white wine, garlic broth was good. It would have been perfect to sop the sourdough into the broth, but unfortunately they smothered the bread with béarnaise sauce, which I didn't care much for.
- shrimp pesto pizza with broccolini, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, and something a wee bit spicey that was perfection. The pizzas are some of the most reasonable things on the menu, and they're huge
