Stopped in 6:30 pm, fairly talented musician playing. Seated in dark (burned out light) and moved closer to music. Way TOO LOUD for dinner hour, and she was really impressed with herself. Came for Mediterranean thinking something to the middle eastern flair. This was more to the Italian/Greek side. OK-our mistake. Ordered "fall off the bone" lamb shank. It fell... More

Fresco II serves great food, well prepared and seasoned. We have visited a number of times and enjoyed a variety of dishes. For appetizers recommend calamari, mussels marinara, and the Greek grape leaves. For dinner, the 20 oz ribeye steak is highly recommended. In addition, there are two great salmon dishes that are very tasty. Prices are a tad high,... More

Good atmosphere. Average food at high prices with very slow service. Good place to go if you are not in a hurry and want a nice table setting where you can have a leisurely conversation or a business meeting.

We had the lamb gyros. The lamb was exceptionally good and the fries were crispy. However, I was disappointed that the other additions that are traditionally served with gyros were missing. Like the fresh Tomato, Red Onion, Our Signature Tzatziki Sauce - the sauce didn't make it to the gyro and the sliver of one tomato was sad. I could... More

The food was wonderful,Ciopinno had lots of seafood to include a whole lobster tail. I really enjoyed lobster ravioli served in a nice creamy sauce. The service was very good. Our friends had made reservation for around sunset. The sun through the window at sunset was very uncomfortable and the air conditioning was on. the ocean breeze and view were... More

We should have left when they brought the dry crumbly bread and nasty dipping sauce. Instead we stayed for our entrees which were under seasoned, tasting exclusively of fat and garlic. The server was slow to respond but eventually brought salt, pepper and cheese. I still couldn't choke mine down and I'm now going to have to stop somewhere else... More

My husband read great reviews for this place so we tried it. The ambiance was interesting. It didn't feel romantic or comfy. More like a place that would be hopping with singles at the bar all night long. Anyway, I ordered the lasagna and my husband ordered the ribeye with mashed potatoes and grilled veggies. Oh SO good!!! The lasagna... More

Looking for something different we happened on to a small restaurant in a strip mall adjacent to Mandalay Bay Harbor that turned out very nice. The food, the service and even the jazz guitarist turned out to make an exquisite atmosphere. We ate dinner in the bar area and took advantage of the Happy Hour Specials. The souvlaki and the...

I've been to this restaurant 3 times now and each time we have had to wait about an hour before our food is delivered even though the restaurant was not full, even by half. The pizza's are over baked and burnt on top. The calamari was over cooked and dry/tough. We will probably not be back for a 4th time.
