  • Not my best visit

    I used to go to the original Olives back in Charlestown, MA. I have always made a point of visiting Olives in Las Vegas when I am in town. This visit was my first disappointment. Food was not served hot and the flavors didn't seem to be there. It was standard high end hotel food. Looked good on the plate but not wonderful to eat.

    A group of 7 women enjoyed our meal at Olives last weekend. Food was fabulous and fun atmosphere but took quite a while for our food to come out. Butternut squash tortellini was great! I made reservations. I would return here again.

    Olives is a good strip restaurant with tasty food. The menu has a bit of unique tastes, not necessarily for those that are picky, but there is something for everyone. Our party of 3 each had something different and all dishes were delicious! If you want to sit outside, get there early!!! It is first come first serve for the patio. We didn't realize the restaurant didn't open until 5, which was our reservation time, and we got there a little early. We were the last to be seated on the patio. I think they put out an extra table and chairs just for us which made the dinner experience special. We got to watch the fountains go off many times during our dinner. Thank you for a great dinner! Oh and the wait staff was very attentive and nice!

    I went for Restaurant Week. I got the burratta salad as I love burratta cheese - the salad was fine but nothing to rave about as the burratta was very minimal. I then had the Chicken. The chicken wasn't seasoned at all and the glaze wasn't enough to mask that fact. The drinks were good and so was the sorbet. I probably won't ever go back.

    Sat on the patio for dinner, and both the food and ambiance were divine! It was absolutely perfect. The ONLY downside was that you cannot reserve a table on the patio, but it turned out that there was a table available when we arrived so it didn't effect us at all. Breathtaking!

    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

    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 came here for my boyfriend's birthday thinking it would be a great experience. We unfortunately were seated inside...I know they can't guarantee a window seat or outside seating but just the fact that they didn't try despite my request was frustrating. The tables are so close to each other and it is very noisy. So not romantic! There were 3 different people who had wine glasses fall off their tables and break, in fact the tables are so close to each other that I got elbowed in the head by the waitress serving the table next to us! Don't let the dim lighting, candles at every table and the 'view' of the fountains fool you, it is not a place for a romantic dinner!

    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.

    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.

    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.
