    Great sirloin steak. Was exactly what I had in mind; and cooked perfectly. Great pinot noir from Oregon. Priced...in line with the Strip, so its as much a convenience play (if you are staying at the Bellagio) as anything else. Half the tables have a decent to great view of the bellagio lake and fountains. Made a reservation but still had to wait about 10 minutes.

    I booked this restaurant for a large party (6-people) and the food, ambiance was GREAT! Service at the table was also great. This only thing I was not impressed reservations. I asked to be seated in the patio. I had made reservation over a month in advance I stopped by 1.5-hrs before our reserved dinner time to make this request and they told me I need to come back 1/2 hr before our reservation. We were staying at the hotel and did arrive a few minutes early...REALLY I have to jump through this many hoops for a preplanned dinner. Although my eavening starred off on a sticking point the food was good and the company great so I will let it be.

    My colleagues and I hosted 6 clients for a dinner and sadly this was a disappointing choice. The restaurant was busy and very noisy and they seated our table of 10ppl in the center of the room, which didn't help. The service was fine, attentive and polite although very slow and our clients were too tired to sit thru a 2 1/2 hour dinner after a long week of business. As for dinner, the appetizers were good, the salad just average and my colleague found cardboard in her pasta. My pasta was just average, overcooked and lacking in presentation. Who serves pasta and doesn't offer parmesan cheese? Overall very disappointing and I will likely never go back to this restaurant. I had to apologize to my clients!

    We just returned from Vegas and I made it a point to make a reservation at Olives before we went. The food was amazing and the view is so beautiful and peaceful - as we went when the fountains were not running. I would love to go next time when the fountains are in motion. The martini's were the best we have had! Highly recommend Olives for an awesome dining experience!!

    We made a reservation for our parents anniversary because we wanted them to have a very special evening. After a long wait (seated at 7:30 even though we had a 6:00 reservation) we were seated at a nice table on the patio. There was one waitress for the entire patio & she was running around like crazy doing her best to keep up. An hour after ordering, our food arrived & I have to say that 4 of the 6 of us were disappointed. The pasta dishes were mushy & overcooked & had just been slopped on our plates. No attempt even made to present them in a way that you would expect from a restaurant like this. Thank goodness for the baskets of bread! The views of the fountains were amazing, but the experience was not at all what we expected :(

    Having read the reviews about Olives and the high price menu, I was expecting a great dining experience. I went with my three friends, it was a friends birthday. I had the salmon with beetroot risotto which was very bland, my friends were also disappointed with their food, could have had a better meal elsewhere. The waiter brought out three small profiteroles with a candle for my friends birthday which was nice at first, but then apparently they were stale so she didn't wat them.

    We had an amazing salad course, a watermelon salad and the salad special for the night were both amazing. For our main course I got the butternut squash tortelli and he got the prosciutto and fig flatbread. The flatbread was downright horrible. The prosciutto had no flavor and the fig was overpowering. The tortelli was okay if you made sure you got a nice amount of butternut squash in your bite, otherwise the sauce was so salty it made me cringe. I probably wouldn't eat here again. especially after spending $100 with tip on only 2 courses.

    Get 5pm reservations and show up at4:30 to get a table outside before a show. View is superb, food and service were average. If your looking for fine dining - go elsewhere. If you will only be in Vegas 1 night and want to see the fountains - I suggest drinks and appetizers.

    My husband and I ate dinner here on a Saturday night. When we were first seated it was a table right in front of the door. We didn't like this table as there was a store right across the way (restaurant is in the Caesar's mall) with a very bright light. Even though the restaurant was nearly full, the manager accomodated us and moved us to a table by the window. We shared a flatbread with proscuitto, gorgonzola and figs that was delicious. I had the scallops and my husband had the sea bass. Both were fantastic. The service was impeccable. This was our best dining experience in Las Vegas. Higly recommend a visit to OLiVES.

    The food is great, and the service was doting. Prices are high, but the quality of the service and the food fit the bill. We were not seated outside, but were near a window where we could see when the fountains started, but didn't have a great view. After dinner we went outside on the sidewalk and had a great view of the dancing fountains. I had the trout special, and told the waitress I couldn't have cream or milk, which was in the risotto which accompanied my fish. She told me the chef would make it for me without milk or cream. They served me a delicious risotto with huge chucks of tomato! The fish was a nice large portion, and it also came with broccolini. My husband had steak which he also enjoyed. Both our salads were great. Go here!

    Anything at the Bellagio always seems to be great - Olives is no exception. Compared to many other great choices to eat in Las Vegas Olives is actually reasonably priced - and for what you get ... the food is fantastic and the ambience with the world famous Bellagio fountains and music in the background can't be beat. Try and get a table on the patio and enjoy the fountains directly in front of you - and then combined with the lights of Vegas is an experience you can't replicate anywhere. The Sea Scallops with mushroom risotto (dinner special for the night) was amazing. Olives is an experience I always make time for when in Las Vegas.

    The wait for the patio is very long and the food is mediocre. We had a party of 6 and all 6 plates came out warm at best (some cold!). If I'm paying $50, I expect my food to be hot. Everything took extremely long, including splitting the check, which is fine if you're sitting outside with an awesome view, but we were not. Overall, this was a very mediocre dining experience.

    This is an outstanding fine dining experience. Food was excellent and the service very good. It can get quite busy and trying to get a table for outside on the patio to view the fountains is very hard but with some luck may be arranged because they do not take reservations for outside, only inside the restaurant. I made 8:15 pm reservations with a note on Open Table for patio dining and asked if there was availability for a table on the patio and they said one wasn't available until 10:15 pm. 2 hours wait! I chose to dine inside. They start seating patrons outside at 5:00 pm on and early arrival is better they said.
