Vegas Dining Fails and a Decision

Vegas Dining Fails and a Decision

Heads up, this post may contain affiliate links and any sales made through such links will reward me a small commission.

We were seated at Sadelle’s Cafe fairly quickly. It is right off of the conservatory. Then we were pretty much ignored. 

A waiter came by and poured us water and said he would come back to get drink orders. He never came back. We sat there for about 15 minutes and no one comes to take our order. 

I always say if you are busy just get the table drinks. I am much more forgiving if I have something to drink. And I don’t mean water. 

I finally go and ask the hostess if she can find a waiter to take our order. She tells me that she’ll take our order, but she has to go find a paper to write it on. We wait. Then a waitress comes over and takes our order. Then yet another waitress takes over.

Can you say disorganized and poorly managed?

We finally got drinks.

Fortunately, the food was very good. The portions were large. I had a fried chicken sandwich. It was really yummy. 

If you’ve read my blog for a while then you know that I am a french fry connoisseur. These fries were worthy.

Zung had a club sandwich. 

We were all stuffed and I started to worry about our early dinner reservations.

With our tummies full we were ready for some more shopping. 

We walked through the Bellagio casino. Tessa and I played some slots. Then we walked next door to Ceasar’s. 

We walk through the casino to the Forum shops. There is another Louboutin store and Tessa tries on shoes there. She is not ready to pull the trigger and says she wants to think about it some more.

We walk around the Forum for a bit. It is a feast for the eyes.

We decide to get an Uber back to our hotel to rest before dinner. There is a CVS next door to the Waldorf Astoria. Dave, Tessa and I go in to get some provisions. I get a bottle of red wine and some almond milk so I can have tea in our room in the morning. Dave and Tessa get some rosé sparkling wine.

Zung is already asleep when I get to the room. I take a nap too. 

It’s always nice to have a full day in Vegas when we arrive but by late afternoon I am always regretting such an early flight.

We meet Dave and Tessa at 6:15 in the lobby. 

Tessa standing next to the Moet vending machine in the Waldorf Astoria lobby. To use it you have to pay ($25) the front desk and they give you a special token for the machine and a little thing to attach to the bottle to drink it once it’s opened. 

We walk to our restaurant, Scarpetta. It is next door at the Cosmopolitan. I chose it because it has views of the Bellagio fountains.

It was very dark and we did not have a table that provided a very good view of the fountains. We were not very hungry either. 

Food is “okay.” Service is “okay.”


When I made the reservation I said we were celebrating a birthday so they brought Dave a dessert.

We go back to the Waldorf. Tessa says she has decided not to get the Louboutins. I am disappointed. (I am wearing my very first pair of Louboutins I ever bought in this pic).

A friend of mine once told me that she thought they looked like they had come from Payless. Since then I often refer to them as my Payless shoes.

Zung and I go up to the room. I take a bath. The Waldorf has the most divine bathtubs. We finish the bottle of wine we got at dinner. 

Dave and Tessa go to the Sky Bar for drinks and the view. If you are ever in Vegas you should definitely stop by the Waldorf Astoria for Afternoon Tea or drinks in the evening. 

Tomorrow we were meeting friends who live in Las Vegas for brunch. It would be a memorable get together.
