Was not impressed.
Ambiance was ok. Black, red, dark. Very modern Vegas, but looked like a place where True Blood vampires would dine at.
Had the 3 course $39 prixe fixe special and came out feeling hungry and unsatisfied.
Ordered a melon appetizer, halibut main entree, and an unmemorable rum dessert.
The entrees came out looking like an entire tv dinner on one plate, similiar to a bento box. Um, what happened to a real dining experience? No drum roll? Just slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am plates?
Staff was friendly though and I liked the wrap around bar.
However, the food lacked the quality and substance of Joel Robuchon.
I enjoyed the company of good friends, but I did not care too much for the culinary experience here.

I've been to L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon about three times. I would say that the food is up to par to the Joel Robuchon Main Restaurant next door if you order off the regular menu (I've heard that the theatre menu is crap).
Service is outstanding, especially if you sit at the bar. You'll have the wonderful experience of watching the chefs work their magic hands with finesse.
Overall, if you want a taste of Robuchon's cuisine and a fairly affordable price tag, L'Atelier is your best bet!

Many fine dining restaurants in Vegas resorts seem to be having recession specials right now, so we decided to take advantage of a $39 prix fixe menu L'Atelier is offering. We found out that they stop serving this particular pre-theater menu at 6:45pm. We were running late, and got in closer to 7pm, but the chef still accommodated us.
The three course meal was served bento box style, with even the dessert on the plate. I can see how this is a convenient wham, bam, thank you ma'am option for people rushing to catch a Vegas show.
I ordered the king crab and cous cous appetizer, osso buco entree and peach panna cotta dessert. While everything was tasty, portions were definitely on the small side, and nothing that blew me away. It wasn't the quality you'd expect from a Joel Robuchon restaurant.
Service was pretty mediocre as well. Just because L'Atelier is the more affordable and trendy alternative to its sister restaurant, it doesn't mean it shouldn't put out excellent food and service too.Recommended for:
