Only a hour flight away from Las Vegas we visit frequently, sometimes once a month. I'll be sharing our trip reports, tips on making the most of your stay in Vegas, reviews of restaurants and shows we have seen, along with my thoughts related to our favorite place to get away from it all.

Mastro's Ocean Club Restaurant at Crystals City Center

Boots suggested we give Mastro's Ocean Club restaurant a try on our February trip to Vegas and I was all for it as reviews were good and I've never eaten at any restaurant at Crystals City Center up to now.
Photo of the restaurant above, some call it a tree house, others call it other things, what do you think it looks like?
Boot's gin base cocktail which she describes in the video below. I forgot to take a photo of my Cosmopolitan I ordered but it is in the video and bubbling away as it was served with dry ice on the bottom of the glass.
 I have the bread basket in the video but again forgot to take a photo of it. I was having some camera issues that evening, couldn't be me, has to be the camera. ;)
 Boots had the appetizer portion of their scallops and it was great, but with the heavy butter sauce very rich!
 I loved my crab appetizer served on dry ice, the portion was very generous and well worth the price, I would order this again!
 Boots had a filet mignon which she liked but was having trouble eating as the rich buttery sauce on the scallop appetizer had filled her up.
 I ordered the dinner entree of scallops which was a mistake because I could only eat three of the five on my plate due to the heavy sauce so in hindsight should have ordered the appetizer portion for my entree.
 Sides of sugar snap peas and mushrooms. They were fresh and tasty but a bit heavy on the oil/butter.
We were too full to order a dessert which made me sad! If I return since portions are so generous I would likely order the crab again which was really a good deal in my opinion and then perhaps a second appetizer as my entree and only one side dish per two persons so that I would have room to try one of their desserts!

Photo Slide Show and Video of the food and drinks. My Cosmopolitan cocktails not pictured above is in the video, it was smoking with lots of dry ice!

    1. Hi Roseann,

      It was your typical Cosmopolitan drink with the exception of all that bubbling from the dry ice. If you like Cosmopolitan's the best one on the strip is at The Cosmopolitan hotel and casino, they are great there, including the ones for free on the casino floor. :)
