We started off with a Goodbye Blue Sky drink made with blueberry vodka and fresh berries, which we selected from the iPad drinks menu (the iPad is just given for you to peruse, you still have to order through your server the old-fashioned way.)
Then we pored over the menu which features the pub selections on the left and the fancier grill options on the right. We went back and forth between both sides stumped on what to order. But when it came down to it, we wanted to keep our meal at a reasonable cost so the pricier grill entrees were nixed in favor of a simple beet salad with goat cheese and an order of the traditional British chips (known here in America as french fries.)
The salad was surprisingly good--full of flavor and totally fresh, something that's often hard to accomplish in a Vegas casino. The fries were, duh, delicious. Our dinner companion ordered the trio of mini-burgers and a Magic Hat ale. We split the bill down the middle and it came out to be $70 per person. Again, not very pub-like. And we didn't even order from the grill side of the menu!
The real downer, after the Vegasification of the pub, was the service. Our server was friendly but after he handed us the iPad, he didn't come back for about ten to 15 minutes, even though we were clearly ready to
get buzzin' order. Also, the pretzel bread plate was scrumptious but it was delivered at the end of our meal. We could have eaten that while we were waiting for our orders to be taken.
Despite Gordon's best attempt at bringing the British to Vegas, this joint is much like any other joint in Vegas--glitzy and pricey with hot women at the door and unpredictable service--but at least the food is good.
Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill is open from 11am to 12am during the week and until 2am on the weekends. We strongly suggest making a reservation on OpenTable before you go.
