    Such a treat going to Olives for dinner. I requested the patio and with a very brief wait time they were able to accommodate our group. It was well worth the wait and we appreciate the flexibility of the staff. We will definitely be coming back again soon.

    The main selling point to this place is the patio seating next to the Bellagio fountain show. This would be great if you could get a seat on the patio, but they say they don't take reservations. We arrived 90 minutes early, asked to sit on the patio, and told that it would be an additional 90 minutes from our reservation time. Instead they sat us at a window inside, where we had a clear view of 5 outside tables that remained empty for our entire dinner. Clearly there is some secret vip list for the patio. The food was mediocre, too heavy, and the service was overly casual. Considering you're paying twice as much to eat in Vegas, I'd say the whole experience was really underwhelming.

    food and service were just ok, nothing better. Ordered the special that night, a grilled rib eye, rare. Came medium- medium rare. Flavor was good, but over-looked in my taste which made it dry. Server was too busy to pay any attention. Ordering and getting the check took an inordinate amount of time.

    Food was great. We had a wonderful bottle of chianti. Views were amazing. Service was not good. Took a long time for our server to get to us, then we ordered our wine and sat about 15 minuets before the server returned. Food came out and we never saw our server again until we asked for the check. It was very busy - Friday night at 8- none the less the service was unacceptable.

    We were intent on trying something new...like the steak tartare. But there's something about reading the description of the Beef Carpaccio that makes you forget anything else exists on the menu. I've been to Olives several times and it's always consistent and delicious.

    Beautiful restaurant with great view of the Bellagio fountains if you're lucky enough to get an outside table. The beef carpaccio appetizer was tender served over polenta and greens was enough to feed 4. The scallops were tender and seared to maintain its delicate flavor. Watermelon salad was refreshing. Service was amenable considering a packed restaurant. Todd English has definitely procured an enviable dining establishment with incredible food and ambience.

    Dining at an outdoor table and watching the Fountains of Bellagio was the highlight of a dinner that included very good food, wine, and service. Upon learning that we were celebrating my wife's birthday, the hostess went out of her way to assign us a table that was close enough to the explosive fountains that we felt mist from time to time. The chicken & sausage flatbread, salmon entree, and swordfish special were all very good and the waiter was most attentive. There were a number of outstanding wines to select from and we were happy with our selection of the Kistler Chardonay. Profiteroles and ice cream with a candle were an excellent way to end the dinner, as the waiter surprised my wife in a subtle way with the restaurant's treat. Prices are high but reasonable for this location on the Strip. I would definite consider dining at Olives during my next visit to Las Vegas.

They even brought out desert with happy birthday and happy anniversary written in chocolate. Overall, an absolutely wonderful experience.

    Our Nov. 14 reservation worked, and we were given an outdoor dining table as requested by my wife. We had one of the specials of the day and a luncheon item off the regular menu. Our waiter was the same one we had last year so that was nice to have a familiar face. The food was great and the atmosphere was good. We got to watch staff working in the fountains below and the ducks swimming around. We had perfect weather for getting outdoors. I had no complaints.

    I've been wanting to try out Olives for some time now and glad we finally did. Every time I've walked passed the restaurant in the past it's always been bust and now I can see why. The food was exceptional, the service was amicable and attentive and it was extremely affordable for fine dining on the strip. Nothing was overly fancy or avant-garde on a culinary level, but everything was very good. I will dine there in the future and this time make a point to dine on the patio which has spectacular seating with an up close and personal view of the Bellagio fountains.

    This was my first time in Vegas and I was disappointed with Olives at the Bellagio. Food was maybe a 2 out of 5. Staff had no energy, its like they have been there too long. No excitement. The view of the fountain was nice but that was it. Not a positive experience. DO NOT waste your money here. The Aria has much better restaurants and the staff is exquisite. The Bellagio needs to get rid of this restaurant and come up with something better!

    Made a reservation for 2 so I can propose to my girlfriend. I held off from telling OLiVES until we got there, but our server Paul A. was so amazing, so enthusiastic, and with other staff, made it the ultimate proposal I could only dream of doing. Enjoyed our wine and entrees inside, but we were then moved to an available table out on the veranda for the Bellagio Fountain show and some dessert. The dessert plate was where the surprise was... THANK YOU OLiVES! We will be back!

    My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed Olives while in Vegas last week. We arrived about 45 minutes prior to our reservation to have a drink at the bar. We had requested outside seating on Olives patio and this worked out since we were there early enough. It overlooks the Bellagio fountain and the view was AWESOME. We both ordered pasta dishes and were very satisfied. Great amount of food. The only criticism we had was with the bread and tapenade before our meal. Not our preference. Service was excellent from the hostess, to the bar, to our server. We would recommend to friends traveling into Vegas and will be going back.

    The food and drinks were exceptional. The restaurant was a lot louder than we were expected; the bar area is right "on top of" restaurant seating, and the sound of the crowd seems to carry throughout the restaurant. An awesome place to eat so long as you can handle the noise.

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    We made reservations days ahead, yet when we arrived, the hostess said, "You'll have to take this table by the door or wait." We looked inside and the restaurant was only half full! We nicely pointed that out and she said to the other woman at the hostess stand..."Fine, take them to table (table number)". She never made eye contact, she never smiled and her tone was rude. What a terrible way to start what was supposed to be a fun night out. After that, the food was fine and our waiter Chris was both professional and amiable.

    The location is perfect. It was too cold to sit outside at night but the temperature during the day is ideal. I picked this place because of the variety of items on the menu and also the variances in price range. We came as a group to celebrate a 21st birthday, so finding an eatery to suit a huge spectrum of tastes was a challenge. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and no one felt that the choices from the bar did not suit their tastes and interests. In short, everyone had something they liked and enjoyed both in food and beverage. Our waiter was funny, laid-back and accommodating to our needs. We all left happy and satisfied with our dinner.

    Noice level unbearable. Requested to dine outdoors (made reservations well in advance), saw 2 tables available, our request was denied. We were seated along the wall in a row of sardine single tables. Complained to the snooty Maitre de pointing out the empty tables outside. He made the excuse that a patron having reservations arriving before us would be seated there shortly. Shortly was 40 minutes later. Clearly the policy of first come first served for outdoor dining is a farce! The restaurant was cramped & we were rushed. We are returning patrons of the Bellagio but will be taking this restaurant off our list. Lunch experience was not much better. My flat bread dish was thrown together. I counted 3 cherrie tomatoes. Olives has declined.

The restaurant serves olives, pesto and sun dried tomato as garnish with the bread ... Yum! I had a Slingback martini which was my favorite cocktail of the weekend. All of our lunch entrees were awesome, but the beef carpaccio was the dish everyone was raving about. Will be back again!!

We each had something different so we were able to sample each other's meals. Every bite melted in your mouth. Cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Each and every person we encountered was very attentive and kind. Go early and you can hopefully sit outside and enjoy the water show at Bellagio. We will definitely be back!!

    One of my new favs in Vegas, Olives did not disappoint. We had wonderful champagne and cocktails followed by huge delicious salads. The menu had so many wonderful options, I had a very hard time picking because it all sounded so great! We ended up with the lamb lollipops and the scallops - both were so delicious that we wanted to lick the plate! I absolutely will be sure to book a table at Olives during all future trips to vegas. Next time I'd like to try to sit out on the patio for a better view of the Bellagio fountains. i LOVED it!!

    I didn't expect this but if I could describe this in two words it would be "comfort food." The dishes are flavorful with Mediterranean spices and high quality olive oil. Everything tasted amazing with a unique flare not found in the common cafe around Vegas casinos. I ordered the chicken with olive oil mashed potatoes (lactose free!), the watermelon salad (amazing!), and sorbet (some of the best I've tasted not too sugary). The key is to dine for lunch to get a **** meal at ** prices.
