A La Carte Menu
The main portion of the menu at Michael Mina is filled with amazing food. While there is a wonderful variety on the menu, the focus really stays centered on seafood.
For example, there’s a wonderful selection of shellfish, both chilled and charcoal-grilled, that can be ordered for the table or in individual portions. A few favorites from this portion of the menu include the Lemongrass Poached Prawns, and the Maine Lobster brushed with confit garlic.
A little further down the menu, you’ll find the Ahi Tuna Tartare. This is sushi-grade Ahi Tuna that’s garnished with toasted pine nuts, mint, Asian pear, and habanero-infused sesame oil. This Tuna Tartare is exquisite and a true treat that can only be enjoyed at Michael Mina Las Vegas. The Grilled Octopus with cardamom zhug is equally delicious and wonderful when paired with the Fall Chicory Salad.
If you crave something a little richer, the Lobster Gnocchi is tender and almost melts in your mouth with each bite. This is served with black truffle butter for an extra decadent touch.
For guests with more of a carnivore spirit, Michael Mina Las Vegas offers delicious food for them too! There’s the Venison Saddle with juniper-scented jus, the NY Strip Steak with smoked bearnaise, and the A5 Japanese Wagyu with black truffle potato and shallot marmalade. A side of roasted mushrooms with toasted pine nuts to go along with this is hard to resist.
One of the highlights of the dining experience at Michael Mina is the caviar service. This service perfectly embodies the decadence of Las Vegas.
Guests can choose from a Traditional Royal Caviar Service of Michael Mina’s famous Caviar Parfait. The latter is exquisite caviar layered with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, and egg.

Michael Mina’s Lobster Pot Pie
The signature Lobster pot pie is one of the specialty dishes that is utterly delightful. It’s a Maine lobster pot pie with the most delicate brandied lobster cream and tender baby vegetables. If you love Maine lobster and want to splurge, this is definitely a dish that shouldn’t be missed.
Currently, Michael Mina’s Maine Lobster Pot Pie goes for about $145, and it’s worth every penny.
Applewood Smoked Branzino
The Applewood Smoked Branzino is one of the finest creations of chef Michael Mina. In our opinion, this dish surpasses much of the other seafood on the menu. It’s served with Castelvetrano olives, coco bean, artichoke, and preserved lemon.
A half fish is $75, while the whole fish is $145
Hudson Valley Foie Gras
The Hudson Valley Foie Gras is pure decadence, and if foie gras is something you enjoy, this is a truly great restaurant to experience it.
