    The food here was pretty good, although it took a while to get. The restaurant is decorated very nicely, but I would not recommend it if you're trying to have a quiet conversation. Like many places in Vegas, it is quite loud in there. We were a were a work party of five people enjoyed the wine enjoy the martinis but did had a hard time hearing each other

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    A group of women celebrated my sister's 60th birthday at Olives recently. The hostess, Erica, was very helpful and accommodating getting us a table on the patio. The evening view of the fountains was breathtaking. What a fabulous backdrop for our celebration! Our server, Paul Anthony, was exceptional in every way. He anticipated our every need and provided unexpected special touches that made our celebration all the more memorable. Most of our party had the tasting menu with wine pairings and every dish was delicious. Everyone in our party, ranging in age from 30 to 84, felt that we'd had a most magical and memorable evening.

    I met with some friends on the spur of the moment, and was pleased to get a table on the outside patio, which faces the fountains and therefore has a spectacular view of the periodic dancing waters show. I really enjoyed the blueberry infused vodka martinis. The raw oysters were excellent and the scallop entre was superb. Solid service and good experience overall.

    Olives was such a treat!! I inadvertently secured a table on the following night and the manager still was able to accommodate our party of four. The food was delicious and the service great, attentive and friendly without being in our face. I will definitely come to this spot again though next time will try to sit out on that gorgeous patio!

    Food is very good here. I had a filet over some Yukon mash and Carmelized onions. Tempura asparagus accompanied as well. I added on grilled shrimp which wS only $12 and you got 5 jumbo grilled shrimp on sone kind of garlic wine/butter sauce. No room for dessert but a must would be there fruit infused vodka martinis. We had the blueberry and pineapple ones. They were great! If you get a chance to sit close enough to tge windows then you get a great view of the Bellagio "dancing waters" fountains.

    We lucked out with our timing for a late lunch, and were seated on the patio as the famous Bellagio Fountains started their shows. I can highly recommend the food..oysters, steak sandwich, and scallops on risotto were crafted to delight our tastebuds. In addition, this restaurant has hard to find Gruner Veltliner from the Wachau Valley...another bonus. The trifecta was the excellent and professional service. If you throw in amazing weather, the experience was perfection!

    OLIVES was recommended to us as a place to go in Vegas. Because we had a reservation we were seated upon our arrival. The food was well prepared and served expertly. I can't say this was a spectacular culinary event for me, but it was good. The olive tapenade served with bread was tasty. There was nothing about this place that stood out except that if you were seated by the windows or on the patio you would have a great view of the Bellagio fountain.

    Found Olives to meet my expectations for a Todd English restaurant but never exceeded. Food was well seasoned and timely, wide variety and reasonably priced. Some of the tables post dinner drinks were forgotten and took WAY too long, 20 minutes for a cappuc is absurd. Have to wonder if Olives over seats their servers for this to happen since the rest of the mail service was prompt and correct.

    It was fantastic. I booked early and requested a patio seat at 6:45 through open table - mom & I had a wonderful dinner & time. The service was fantastic - food great and the fountains just added to our evening. My only suggestion to anyone reading this....don't order wine, they are way over priced I got a bottle of Rodney Strong wine for us as I don't usually order in a restaurant, I thought $50 a bottle wasn't a bad price. Find out it sells for about $15 - Every business is due a mark up but over 300% is a bit much.

    I highly recommend Olives to all that visit Las Vegas. Advance reservations are a must. We have eaten at the Bar when we did not make reservations. The blue cheese dirty martinis were so good. The breads & olive spread tray...so good. Full menu with great salads/appetizers. We added a lobster tail to our Filet for an incredible meal to remember. Everything cooked to perfection with great service... You can eat outside to watch the Bellagio water shows every 30-60mins...

    Have eaten here 4 or 5 times and this visit just wasn't that great. Had a bad table on the mall side instead of fountain side. Tired waiter. All of this wouldn't matter except the normally incredible food was just average this time. The beef carpaccio has been a flavor sensation and this night was just "eh". The fois was strangely oily and the gnocchi was just OK. I usually always get an amazing souffle for dessert but skipped it this time - just didn't want to eat anymore. Hope this was an "off" night and not a trend.

    Greenock60
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    From the fabulous location to the excellent menu, Olives never disappoints and whenever we are in Las Vegas we make a point to dine there. The Sommelier helps us decide the perfect choice of wine to compliment our meal. And of course the most romantic part of the evening is the water show on the balcony. That completes the unforgettable evening. No trip is complete without a visit to Olives.

For the amount of money charged to our dinner, the food was not as goog as it as it was expected to be: salad was old and slimy, main course risotto was overcooked and way too much salt. The service was good. All in all, we would look for other restaurants next time.

    Bellagios is an absolute must if you are visiting Vegas. Located on the strip, with a massive pool of water and a great view of surrounding impressive hotels, it's one of those gems that all should experience. My friend and I stood in line for our five o'clock reservation and lucked out on a patio table overlooking the spray fountains, which were choreographed to produce a dramatic show to music every 15 or so minutes.

    The food and service at Olive's was outstanding. Wine choices were prefaced by small tastes, and a visit from one of the Sommeliers led to more fun wine discussion. We shared the exceptional beet salad appetizer, and then had the lamb chops and butternut pasta. Both entrees were delicious, full servings, and would choose them again. Profiterols were dessert, and they were perfect. We had asked to sit by the window overlooking the Bellagio fountain, and got our wish. In a very busy setting, they went the extra step. Overall a wonderful experience.

    We really wanted to sit outside on the patio & didn't mind waiting for an open table. We actually showed up 30 minutes early to our reservation & were told it would be two to three hours to get a table on the patio. I didn't mind waiting, but, they would not take my cell phone number to call me when ready. So, we were tied to the restaurant waiting out front v. at least walking around the hotel enjoying it, while waiting. They did make it difficult & we did not get a patio table. We ended up sitting inside which was much less exciting.

    Out of all the dining options at The Bellagio, OLiVES is the best choice for a reasonably priced, but top of the line dinner experience. We had made reservations for a busy Saturday night and were seated immediately, waited on promptly by professionals who knew what they were doing and made it look easy. It's easy to make a meal of shared starters and we enjoyed the famous beef carpaccio and one of the flatbreads (portobello mushrooms). Our entire experience was of a wonderful restaurant that maintains very high standards for both food and service (often no the case in even the most expensive or well-rated restaurants). Would highly recommend it for lunch or dinner.

    It's a great location, but also excellent food. It is very relaxing to watch the fountains as you are enjoying your meal. We shared four appetizers. It was plenty for three people. We were celebrating my niece's 21st birthday. They carded her when we ordered wine, wished her a happy birthday and brought out a complimentary dessert. Definitely a must do when in Vegas.
