Sinatra Wynn pays culinary homage to Ol Blue Eyes (AKA Frank Sinatra), who was not only one of the most famous singers, actors, and producers but also a Las Vegas icon in his own right. Sinatra at Wynn Las Vegas is a fine Italian restaurant with swinging music from years gone by and a welcoming, elegant atmosphere.
Enjoy a fine dining experience like no other in Las Vegas at the Forbes Four-Star Sinatra. This review will tease your appetite and help you prepare for a wonderful and delicious evening out at a Las Vegas fine dining tradition.
Before you even get to the menu, the upscale atmosphere at Sinatra stands out as memorable. Walking through the doors feels like stepping back in time to an era when glitz and glamor ruled in Las Vegas.
The dining room is elegant, inviting, and reminiscent of what you’d envision a fine dining Las Vegas restaurant to be in an era gone by.
If you prefer a more modern atmosphere with clean lines and neutral colors, then you might feel a little out of place at Sinatra. If you enjoy a classic ambiance with red tablecloths and subtle gilded (two words you don’t often see together) accents, then you’re going to love the warm, almost sexy atmosphere.
Sinatra also offers an outside terrace for alfresco dining. Enjoy the pleasant backdrop of the outdoor gardens and cozy fireplaces that lend to an even more intimate ambiance on a slightly chilly Las Vegas evening.
Of course, the main reason Sinatra at Wynn Las Vegas is on your list of restaurants for a nice meal is the delicious food. Sinatra is known for elevated classic Italian cooking and signature flavors. Each portion of the menu offers something special for guests to devour with the signature flavors Sinatra is known for.
The Antipasti portion of the menu features options that are beyond what you find at many Italian restaurants and features a nice selection of seafood options. The Panzanella di Granchio, with jumbo lump crab, brioche croutons, and tomato fonduta is divine. Another seafood selection on the Antipasti menu is the Mediterranean octopus with red onions, fried capers, and a red pepper emulsion.
If you would prefer your meal to start with something other than seafood, the Antipasti menu offers no shortage of options. The foie gras with a huckleberry reduction is popular among guests who want to start with something a little on the rich and decadent side (although we haven’t tried this dish ourselves). You might crave something on the polar opposite spectrum, such as a lighter, more refreshing Caprese with mozzarella di bufala.
A few of the other options include homemade meatballs with polenta fries or the Carpaccio di Manzo, which is the thinnest sliced beef tenderloin with salsa verde and baby arugula, accompanied by a bright lemon vinaigrette. It’s flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth tender.
Sinatra is a fine dining restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas, so of course, there’s going to be caviar service available. Osetra caviar with traditional accompaniments is available in either 28g or 50g serving sizes.
Classic Italian cooking is the essence of Sinatra, and you can’t really have that without a selection of pasta on the menu. Sinatra offers a selection of pasta dishes that satisfy your cravings for elegant comfort food.
Some favorites on the menu include the Lasagna Bolognese, which tastes like it’s crafted from a recipe that’s been handed down for generations. The hand-cut squid ink pasta with a tomato emulsion and Maine lobster is visually stunning, and the braised Wagyu filled cappellacci with brussels sprouts petals and a red wine sauce is one of the most decadent dishes we’ve tasted in a while.
Among the fresh pasta is a house favorite – Frank’s Spaghetti & Clams. This is a classic dish with a silky tomato garlic broth. It’s simple and delicious, which helps explain why it’s so popular.
Another dish on the Pasta menu that’s difficult to resist is the risotto with forest mushrooms, micro-herbs, and half-butter-poached Maine lobster.
Seafood is such an important feature of true Italian cuisine, and Sinatra offers several seafood dishes that are nothing short of exquisite.
The grilled Mediterranean sea bass with seasonal vegetables, salsa verde, and yellow pepper coulis start off this portion of the menu. The flavors are bright and bold while still honoring the more subtle flavors of the sea bass.
Of course, there’s a cioppino on the menu, and it really is one of the best we’ve tasted. Lobster, shrimp, clams, and scallops are simmered in a silky lobster saffron broth. Another favorite on this portion of the menu that never disappoints is the seared diver scallops with parsnip puree.
While Sinatra isn’t a steakhouse in the traditional sense, there are some really nice options on the menu for the carnivores that walk through the doors.
The Capriolo is pan-seared venison loin with soft polenta and brussels sprouts petals, while the Milanese is a dish that offers a thinly pounded veal chop with a tri-color salad and tomato marmalade. The veal parmigiana is a classic dish that is always reliable, with melted mozzarella and pomodoro sauce.
Jidori chicken is a dish that has made its way onto many menus at finer dining restaurants in Las Vegas. Sinatra’s take on it involves mashed potatoes, forest mushrooms, and marsala sauce. This creation is among the favorites that we’ve tried.
However, if you’re in the mood to try one of the signature dishes at Sinatra, the Osso Buco “My Way” is a must. The Osso Buco is served with saffron risotto Milanese, and gremolata. If you’re only going to dine at Sinatra once in your life, this is the dish to try.
Contori is a selection of sides at Sinatra at Wynn Las Vegas. These aren’t dishes that stand alone as the main dish, but they make wonderful accompaniments to a meal.
Polenta fries, forest mushrooms, glazed asparagus, and mashed potatoes are additional side dishes offered. You could argue that there’s not a lot of creativity or culinary innovation here, but they’re all tasty and won’t overpower the main component of your meal.
Sinatra offers a vegan menu, but the selection of actual vegan dishes is rather sparse. There is a small selection of salads that stretch beyond the usual dinner salad, with flavors that are bright and seasonal.
For mains, the Agnolotti, which are these delicate little pockets filled with mushrooms and herbs, is perfect. There’s also a faux chicken parmesan with vegan parmesan cheese. The sweet course offers fruit-based dishes, including a trio of sorbetto.
You’re enjoying a nice dinner conversation with Frank’s music playing in the background, and maybe you just finished a delicious meal of prime bone-in ribeye with red wine sauce, Ossobuco My Way, or tender butternut squash filled pastry, and the attentive server distracts your attention with the dessert menu. What should you do?
Our answer to this is always to indulge yourself, especially at a restaurant like Sinatra.
Chef Theo Shoenegger knocks it out of the park with the dessert selection. One favorite that’s rich enough that you may want to share is the Millefoglie di Pera – a delicate caramelized puff pastry with pear compote, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate gelato.
Chocolate lovers will enjoy the Valrhona dark chocolate mousse with Jack Daniels pana cotta. Classics like Tiramisu and Creme Brulee fill out the dessert menu, along with several other tasty, decadent dishes.
