Flamingo -Voga (CLOSED)

 

Just opened up at the end of December at Flamingo. We were gonna go to the Italian restaurant that used to be here, before Voga. We didn't know they closed and opened up Voga.
Hard to believe it's at the Flamingo casino. Inside the restaurant is very cool. Would be nice place to hang out with friends around my age.

Let's talk about food. I did like the fact they have "shared plates". Because you can try different things. But the prices are too high for what you get. All the food below totaled $100. Sure, we used our Total Rewards money, but if I'm paying cash from my wallet, I'd be pissed. When we ordered water, I asked for regular water, and the waitress brought Fiji bottled water, which we had to pay $5.50 for instead of free. She said "This water is delicious". Well, you know what, I can't tell the difference of water and I don't care if it's good or not. I didn't ask for it.

Our calamari, shrimp, crab cakes were all just OK. It's not a bad taste, but it's not delicious. OK, I should just say so-so. Yeah, I can eat it, but I wouldn't order it again.
But I do wanna come back for their desserts, especially for "fried twinkles". Are they gonna fry twinkles? Or is it Twinkies?















Bread













Fried lime calamari & baby scallops $14













Colossal scampi with pear, tomato, basil $15


















Crab cake and caviar $17


























Sea bass with rock shrimp risotto $34
This was my husband's entree. I tasted the risotto and it was undercooked. Too hard! He liked the fish, but rice was not cooked, and it needed more sauce, he said.













Zen Garden Souvenirs of Indonesia with red berries, pot de creme $8













Very rich chocolate cake


























I think our waitress said that the cream is creme brulee custard.
This custard was actually very good.
