OLiVES - Bellagio Hotel - MGM Resorts
Great find!This was my first visit to Las Vegas and I was looking for a great place for dinner for a special occasion. Olives provided that and more! Great restaurant.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM"AaahhLuuv" Olives!So amazing! Don't even know where to begin! Extremely busy place so call for reservations, and go in early if you want to sit outside on the very small and quaint patio overlooking the Bellagio water show. It's the strip so you will be paying premiums alcohol prices but don't let that stray you. The food was fabulous! Service was terrific! Staff was fun and energetic even though they were crazy busy! Staff was extremely accommodating - they are there to make sure you are happy and quite satisfied. My new favorite Vegas Strip restaurant.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!The food here just have amazing flavors. I will definitely dine here again.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Bad Reservation SystemWe visited Las Vegas last week with a group of four. I made reservations two months in advance requesting a patio table online as well as calling after the reservation was made. With all this effort OLiVES still could not manage to reserve us a table on the patio. Our waiter was very efficient, friendly and the food was delicious, so it was a let down seeing their hostess be very rude and not able to explain to us why we couldn't sit on the patio. What is the point of reservations if you will not reserve some of your tables. It is a shame because we will not be eating there again. There are plenty of other delicious restaurants in Las Vegas that have their reservation system in order that we will be dining at to deal with that mess again.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience / Premier LocationVery nice restauarant with fantastic outdoor dining.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good!We eat at Olives every 6 months and have been doing so for years. It always proves to be a lovely experience!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPatio makes Olive's specialI have eaten here before with an inside seat and liked it very much. The flatbreads are excellent and so are the entree's. But the patio, with its limited seating and excellent views of the Bellagio fountains, puts Olive's over the top as a go to place. I would recommend going at night as the summer heat can be troubling. But good luck getting seated out there as it is in high demand. We went midweek during the summer and before 6pm, and got in no problem. This is not true at other times. I don't want to make Olive's seem like it's just a patio as the food is excellent, but the patio made it especially memorable. The Salmon and Sea Bass were excellent. Would definitely go again, even without the patio.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second visit to OlivesThis is my second time here and it has to be one of the best dining experiences in Las Vegas. The food is incredible (the scallops are my favourite) and the service is fantastic. What really makes the experience for me is the Bellagio fountain show every 15 minutes.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMost authentic experience in LVSecond time we have done this. Make a reservation at this very good Todd English Italian. Arrive and ask for a table out on the veranda. You can go for a walk, play the machines or just sit at the bar. It may be a long wait. Your reward is that you have a front row seat for the Bellagios dancing water show during dinner. Love it!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect nightTodd English's brilliance shines through! Intimate setting with phenomenal food, perfectly prepared! Arrived a few mins before reservation time & request patio seating. Waited about 20 mins in beautiful bar then were seated on the rail outside with spectacular view of lake & fountains. A perfect night!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOlives stole the show on ourOlives stole the show on our Vegas trip. We had a 5pm reservation on the patio by the fountains. I wouldn't recommend it any other way. The food was fabulous, the scenery unbelievable, and the atmosphere was really special.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRequest a table on the terraceRequest a table on the terrace for a magnificent view of the Bellagio fountains at night.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday LunchHaving been to Vines previously all be it a while ago, i am pleased to say that the food, service, wine and setting once again did not disappoint. I would instantly recommend Vines to anyone who asked my thoughts.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!We arrived early for our reservation, hoping to score a seat outside to no avail. Our disappointment was quickly squashed by the foie gras and carpaccio appetizers, followed by the lobster candy wrappers, scallops, and prime filet with crabcakes. This meal was absolutely outstanding, and we're already talking about going back to Vegas just to eat at this restaurant again!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure when in VegasWe dine here at least once whenever in Vegas. Love the outdoor patio with fountain view. Service and food are always impeccable. Would highly recommend.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodradAll round great experience for dinner on May 31, 2013. Ambiance, service and food were all top notch.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!!If you sit on the patio, ask for Michelle to be your waitress. Hands down the best waitress EVER!!
Beautiful view of Bellagio fountains while eating delicious food.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGive it a try - a worthy experienceReally good food & great table service. Disappointed by not honouring request made in advance for patio table. Recommend anything on the menu - its all good. But we had pork tenderloins & a fig/ ham flatbread, on the night. Liked the olives & tapenade, but reservations about the White Chocolate Bread - rustic / plain would have been better. On its own the bread was good, but rendered the tapenade surplus. Great salads to start (but what was that huge crouton on the caesar for?
Portion sizes adequate. Great cocktails. Good coffee - where was the complimentary biscuit though?
Go - spoil yourself, but Bellagio......spoil your customers too & go the extra mile each & every time - its the only thing that sets you apart from the masses5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeWaiter Paul made our dining experience perfect. Very professional. His timing was perfect. Next time we will ask for him to be our waiter!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Nice view.During our trip we saw several people coming here after their wedding and I just don't think this place is that nice compared to other places we have dined. The pulled pork was surprisingly good. Carpaccio could have been better. The octopus app is decent though. Nice place to sit outside and watch the fountains. Service was pretty attentive too.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMbest view of the fountainsbest view of the fountains on the strip. We sat on the patio and loved it. The steak carpaccio was wonderful. My wifes pasta dish was as well. I had the lobster roll, and it was meh, little amount of lobster salad, and very fine small pieces of lobster, lots of bread.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fountain-side diningPrompt, courteous staff, sitting ou by e fountain really makes the experience.

Great spot for a lunch.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal and atmosphereWe really enjoyed our meal, probably one of the best dinner's we had during our six night stay. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient. Bartenders were non-attentive, you had to flag them down while they standing around talking to each other.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food and atmosphereHosted a group of 12 for a business dinner. Food was excellent. They were very accommodating when the first wine we selected was a bit too harsh.
Service was a bit slow, waited quite a while for entrees, then again for coffee and dessert.
But it remains a favorite of mine in Las Vegas, will return.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening at OLIVESWe always dine at Olives when we visit Las Vegas. We took friends this time and all was outstanding. Because this is such a popular spot, there were quite a number of people waiting to be called for seating when we arrived so we thought we might have to wait. Not to worry--all is handled very efficiently and promptly. Reservation was at 8 and we were seated promptly at that time.
Service, ambiance, and of course the food was top notch as always. Highly recommend to all who want a wonderful dining experience while in LV.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to the hype!This is one celebrity chef restaurant that lived up to expectations. I was late arriving on a busy Saturday night and the host staff still got me in without batting an eye. Server was extremely knowledgeable and helped me make up my mind on the several appetizers that I wanted to try, as well as giving me some helpful direction on a main course. I will definitely return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredibly rude hostesses,Incredibly rude hostesses, but the food is delicious, and if you can get a seat outside, lovely view of the water show.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and atmosphere was awesome...!Food and atmosphere was awesome...!
