  • Returning to Aureole Restaurant at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, my husband and I decided we would just take in the scene in the restaurant’s intimate suede-walled lounge beside the towering conversation-piece wine tower. We failed miserably in not being spotted by a few of the staff we know there, and were instantly treated to appetizers and cocktails compliments of the management department.

    Tantalizing flavors of such delights as the Seafood Sausage, Tune Poke, the Oyster of the Day, a cube of Lemon Watermelon, and Smoked Salmon Mousse embraced a multitude of exotic and unparalleled sapidity. I certainly remembered the Tuna Poke from our former visit to the restaurant when we dined in the intimate Swan Court. I reminisced upon the larger version of this divine combination of sea salt-marinated cubed yellowfin tuna sashimi with its appropriate summation of piquant enhancements. The lemon-marinated watermelon cube was an intriguing eye-catcher, while its essence of sweet and acerbic tastes combined graciously. The Oyster of the Day was chilled to perfection and topped with a sprinkling of savory caviar, while the Seafood Sausage ranked high on our list of flavorful delights. We finished with the Smoked Salmon Mousse... its airy cloud of flavorsome happiness set upon a house made crostini. The crunch of the crisp bread beneath the mousse contrasted nicely against the smooth and creamy texture of the tasty topping.

    Before we knew it, and another round of drinks magically appearing before us, we found ourselves arriving at a dining table in the restaurant on the other side of the lounge. Suddenly, those we were acquainted with at this eatery took charge, and insisted we stay for dinner. A table was set especially for the two of us, and two more vessels of beverages were delivered to us before we even ordered, compliments of the house.

    The Organic Green Salad was prepared with ample creamy goat cheese packaged in a prepared phyllo dough casing. One bite of this magnificent salad creation, and I was smiling from ear to ear. A mild cider vinaigrette was added as a dressing choice, and sliced poached pears finished the dish off nicely with a sweet delicate conclusion.

    The side of Garlic Mashed Potatoes that arrived was served in a rounded elongated dish and topped with olive oil marinated roasted garlic cloves. My husband and I took one bite and agreed that these were the best mashed potatoes (and certainly the most sinful) that we ever had the pleasure of consuming. The garlic essence throughout was spot on, while the texture was more like a thick hot creamy icing that would top most anything imaginable successfully. In a word, they were superb. I remember my husband and I fighting over the very last bite it was so addictive.

    The Grilled Lemon Fish entrée was ordered by my husband. The sizeable filet of tender fish was placed atop a mountain of eggplant caponata, raisins, a chorizo cornbread cake, and puttanesca sauce. The visual appeal of this preparation was vibrant and colorful, while the flavor of the mild fish compared to the bold taste of its accompaniments produced a satisfying entrée from start to finish.

    My Diver Scallops selection arrived with a beautiful display of large diver scallops, pickled turnips, sea beans, whole oversized cashews, and a cashew soy butter dripping from every component of this offering. Three gorgeous smooth-textured scallops were placed center stage amongst the accompanying components, while the aroma of the butter joined by the other ingredients was pleasantly overwhelming.

    Aureole is known for their signature sweet finales to any meal enjoyed at the establishment. This complimentary refreshing Trio of Sorbets is placed into a custom-made serving vessel, which is almost as intriguing as the flavors and vibrant hues of the sorbets. Wild Strawberry, Southern Peach, and South Asian Mango flavors graced the shiny triangular shaped serving dish beneath the six large orbs of ic

  • Tried the tasting menu and I was extremely pleased with it. Each of the 7 courses was a great dish on its own and with the wine pairings, it was excellent!
