We go to Las Vegas 2-3 times a year and usually stay at the MGM. The food at Pearl is wonderful! We can recommend for an appetizer the Dungeness Crab Spring Rolls. The are light and delicious! The best ever is the Almond Chicken for an Entree'. Ohhhh, we dream of it when we come back home and can't wait to go back and eat it again! Also, we love the Shrimp and Pork Rice. It is so good. It is on the expensive side, but expect it for a wonderful meal! Amy

This place has the best atmosphere out of all the restaurants I have been to in Vegas. The food was good...HOWEVER, my boyfriend and I did the hibachi thinking because we were in Vegas, it would be the best hibachi show we had ever seen. Instead it was by far the worst performance, and I was very let down. The guy didn't speak to us, nor did he light a single thing on fire - he just simply cooked the food in front of us. The food was so good though, that I would recommend this place...just don't expect to be amazed by the hibachi.

I am not sure I have ever done this in my life but after I finished my main course I walked up to the chef and told him this was the best meal I had ever had..
Food is spectacular... Huge wine list... Try the bacon wrapped chilean sea bass...
I ate at RM Seafood the night before in the Mandalay Bay and this blew it away...
MGM is a dump...

This may only be slightly better than a Taco Bell because of the good drinks and bartenders. The food was bland, portions were too small and there was a serious lack of ingredients going into our dishes. Needless to say, it was disappointing and overpriced.

We'd read some wonderful reviews on this restaurant on a different site, which was why we chose to come here. We love Sushi, being fans of Takashi's in Salt Lake City, Fuki Sushi in Palo Alto, CA (most of the time), and Yoshi's in San Francisco, so we've got some decent Sushi experience under our belts. When it came to Shibuya, I have had better sushi at Whole Foods. Their Kampachi and Hamachi were flavorless, their Salmon tasted soapy, and their Rock and Roll hand roll had barbs. We ordered the vegetable tempura which was fair at best. Another appetizer my husband had was actually decent once he decided to eat half of them instead of the whole piece (they added a RIDICULOUS amount of rice to it). I agree with other posters that the portions were small on the whole. As for the ambiance: Interesting design and color scheme made it fun to look around and appreciate the design. However, it was also FREEZING in the restaurant, and it was so loud our ears were ringing when we left. With 5 industrial cooking fans in the main dining area, it is no wonder. There is little opportunity to talk because the tables for 2 are quite long and there are no walls or partitions between any of the tables. Service was decent, but we paid $180 for our meal (which was ridiculous and so surreal we were just flabbergasted that we were charged so much for such sub par food) and we felt genuinely robbed. I would completely avoid this location if you want sushi while in Vegas. Try ""Yellow tail"" in the Bellagio instead - at the very least you'll be able to hear each other while you talk. We will NEVER eat here again. 2 stars.

My husband really wanted to go to this restaurant. So when I called to make reservations, I was informed that there was a dress code. We really dressed up and looked nice. When we got there, we were told we'd have to wait a few minutes (it wasnt quite 530 and they dont start serving dinner until 530) so we waited nearby. Right after we checked in, this family who were dressed sloppily walks up and says they have reservations for 530. They were seated immediately and we were STILL waiting! Why were they seated before 530 and we had to wait?! Then we were seated next to a family with a screaming baby-oh great! I love ear piercing noises when I want to enjoy a nice meal.
The food was mediocre, not great. It certainly wasn't worth $45 per person!

I had to follow a reader's suggestion and decided to check out their Latin night.
SInce we were hungry though we figured we'd have dinner prior to partying. The dinner was great all together. I had the chile rellenos/ Chile rellenos tell you whether a Mexican restaurant is good or not. They passed the test since the chiles were like the ones made in Mexico City, full of cheese, a bit spicy and a nice coating of egg whites. Most places dip their rellenos in a mixture of scrambled eggs, so when they are placed in the sauce, the egg mixture just falls off. That is my personal test and Diego passed with flying colors. There were a couple of small glitches with their ""ceviche"" but they were prompt to fix them. The service was great, very friendly staff. They were busy but it did not affect the service.
Now for the best part. Vida their Latin club was awesome. After dinner the server offered us complimentary stay for the club (more money for drinks).
The place was packed but if you park yourslef close to the bar, that is where the action is. Lots of dancing and partying with strangers. Amazingly we lasted til the end. The DJ played a great set including Vicente Fernandez as a partying rally.
We're going back>

I'd taken a vacation to Las Vegas last weekend with my girlfriend and I decided to stay at the MGM Grand. My girlfriend and I had decided to eat over at shibuya since we've heard from other friends that it was one of the greatest places to eat. I must say, the food such as the sushi, the soup, and desserts tasted so good that I can honestly say its the best eating I've ever had in the past few months. The prices were reasonable, but to be honest, the service that I got from the servers that night, made it all worth it. My girlfriend and I agreed that it's a place that we'd recommend to anyone.
During our meal our servers were making us warm and welcome. I decided to ask our server to get us refills on our waters. We decided to order something else but we remembered that we asked our server for the refill, so we asked this mexican lady if we could place another order. She was so rude to us, she looked at us and said no, your server is the one who will take care of that. I politely asked for her name, and she it was Celene and that she was the manager. I told her, there is no reason to be rude to us, she just turned around and walked away without apologizing. She just gave us that look.
The reason why I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars, was because of that single incident with that manager. She was just horrible.

I laugh when I see some of the comments people who want to eat for less than $40pp in Hotels on the strip should go to the Buffet not in fine dinings.
Friends recomended Shibuya to us last year, we've been 2 times since, our experience was amazing every time. We must say both time Shibuya was better than well known highly rated Nobu and other praised sushi places.
Great flavors, textures, amazing presentations of innovative food did it for us ( if some classic like Miso black cod, spicy rock shrimp tempura, california roll are there "" I imagine it is a must have to please the tipical demanding spoiled American customers"")
Even so it seems a bit pushy at times service was good ""nowadays waiters are vendors more than servers, but thay had great sake and food knowledge, it seems like there is something for everyone with differents taste and wallet's budget, we have eaten great a la carte for aroud $80 each before. They had a $58 menu that seemed to be of great value but decided to go for the $130 Omakase tasting ""worse every pennies"", well balance with very fresh sashimi dressed with special sauces, signature hot dishes top notch (hard to find in any Japanese restaurant) well executed dishes ""we understood when the server told us they have a French executive chef that teamed up with Japanese master sushi chef"". This place must do over 600 covers but still pulled of such a great performance with timing, presentation and quality of about 14 dishes in 7-8 courses, we ate in 1 hours and 20 minutes, well delivered as we mentioned we where going to a Show. I guess a Chef that can pull this off in those conditions is a true master of his trade, the restaurant was packed. Michelin guide must have forgotten to visit there as it is was far better than a lot for Japanese one michelin star we've been to a New-York and Los Angeles.

I'm not an expert on mexican food. I don't love it. But this place made everything right. We had a certificate or two, so we weren't particularly mindful of our budget. We were able to sample a variety of things and were pleasantly pleased with it all. The waitstaff was wonderful. We got there late and most of the crowds had left, so perhaps they could spend more time with us. Whatever. Maybe that's a tip. Anyway, it was a memorable meal and evening out for us.

After reading some of the previous reviews about Seablue, I was a little worried when I learned it would be a stop on my recent trip to vegas. I was absolutely blown away with my experience! We arrived and were sat promptly in an over-sized booth with a view of the open kitchen. Our server was fantastic and seemed to have an answer for every question asked. She recommended the Octupus app., Seafood Paella, and the Loup de Mer. All were great, but the Octupus was nothing short of perfection! Tenderized in yogurt, you could cut it with your fork! I wasnt impressed with decor, a little cartoonish with big, HUGE red drum-looking light fixtures hanging above our table. However, I was there to enjoy the food, not the decorations.

No, no, no. Spend your money ( a lot of it ) elsewhere. We are from Houston, and we know Mexican (& Tex-Mex) food. We also know good food. This place does not have it. The ambiance and service were OK, otherwise the rating would be one star. Everyone was disappointed with their entrees. I opted for the chef's 'Taster' (sample platter) of four dishes: sea bass (decent, though slightly overcooked), beef tenderloin (uninspired and bland lying atop some sort of odd bland paste), ceviche (this was the worst - almost nothing but cabbage/lettuce that tasted fishy - I'm not kidding), and fingerling potatoes (good, but are boiled potatoes really something a great chef puts on display?). Our complaints were all similar. The food was bland or ordinary. I can get a better meal from a chain restaurant in Houston. I rarely write restaurant reviews, but the degree of disappointment was so high, I just had to vent a bit. Choose a different restaurant in Vegas.

This was the first restaurant we ate at upon arriving at MGM. It's not your ""typical"" mexican food but it was awesome. They come out with chips and 2 different types of salsa and a serving of pico de gallo. They also have 3 seasoning dishes that you can season your meals with. My boyfriend ordered ate the pork and I had chicken tacos al carbon. I don't think the portions were small as the last review said. We went through alot of chips so by the time the food came we couldn't even finish our food - the chips were awesome! Our food was great and the waiter was great as well. He explained everything they had and answered all of our questions. It was a little pricey - about $80 for our 2 entrees. But I'd eat there again because I LOVE mexican food and they have great food and service.

My wife and I celebrated our aniversary at Shibuya Restauratnt at MGM and then went to see Robin Williams perform on 5/25/08. After the show my wife came down with serious lower intestinal problems. The next morning I came down with the same malady. We spent 200.00 at Shibuya and I wanted the restaurant to know they had served some tainted food to prevent it from happening again. I called MGM customer service who took the information and promised the restaurant manager would call. Nothing........ Will not go back to this overpriced dirty restaurant.

The food was okay and the setting truly Las Vegas. But they really push the saki. No problem there, but being a novice when it comes to saki, I asked the waiter for assistance. By his reaction you would have thought I was asking him to solve a complex math problem. He got very flustered and abrupt. From there, it was a downhill experience.

I can?t believe I?m the first person to leave a review for this place!
I traveled to Las Vegas on business recently and since the company I work for is working with MGM Mirage we were treated to quite a few of the clubs/shows/restaurants etc. The fact that dinner at a restaurant with only one menu item I could eat (I don?t eat Seafood) was the highlight of my trip has to say something about the place, right?! I had the best Teriyaki Chicken I?ve ever had ? and as someone who doesn?t eat seafood and lives in LA where everyone is always ?going for Sushi? I have eaten more than my fair share of Teriyaki Chicken!
The Sake selection is mind-blowing. I never knew there were so many choices when it came to Sake ?our sommelier even gave us little info cards for each Sake ? very cool. If you feel like splurging do the Sake Tasting - it was fun and we learned a lot.
The girls that I went with both had the tasting ? I can?t find what it was called exactly on their menu online but it was basically a sampling of 7 dishes. Both were very happy with the food and we all agreed it was the best we?d ever eaten in Las Vegas.
Great place to treat yourself!
