  • Overrated and Understaffed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/28/2014
    The place was packed and it is clear that it is the place to be. We were a party of 3 and everyone's dish was not hot and the fish dishes were overcooked. The waiter was engaging and worked very hard but the place was grossly understaffed with no one around to even fill water glasses. This on a Saturday night in Vegas! The prices for the kind of food and service were frankly obscene. Place operated like this would last 2 weeks in NYC.

    Very loud and place. We had the mushroom flatbread which was very good. My wife had the "tortellini" which was excellent. I had the the ravioli with sausage tomato sauce. The ravioli was excellent but I did not enjoy the sauce. Too much going on when a simple sauce would have worked best. Food was served quickly. Almost felt rushed to leave

    Linguine with clams was very over-priced and disappointing. Noodles were wide and flat, more like fettuccine. Sauce was a creamy texture rather than wine. A few nights later I had a far superior version at Wolfgang Puck's Pizzeria and Cucina at a fraction of the price. Service at Olive's was good and I was able to see water show from table in dining room.

    The best part of Olive's is the patio overlooking the fountain at Bellagio. Arrive early as we had a reservation and found other patrons already waiting ahead of us in order to ensure patio seating. We had 2 disappointments to our evening: An overcooked steak that we had to send back resulting in one person in our group eating after we had finished (not acceptable by my standards for a restaurant of this calibre) and the lack of a "meal" with the scallop entree. One would assume an entree comes with a vegetable and a starch. Not in this case.

    Reservations are encouraged with notes of seating preference. We checked in with Alex (hostess) on the way to a show and confirmed our patio request and reservation time. After the show and arrival at Olives, we were greeted by name and seated on the patio immediately while others still waited to be seated. (No reservations). The service, food, and ambiance were all fantastic. Highly Recommended With Reservations!

    We started at the bar with a bottle of wine which turned out to be wonderful - it went down nicely on its own as well as with our food. We had a few different dishes - flatbread, tempura green beans and a fig salad - and they were all outstanding. The pre-meal bread and olive tapenade were also terrific and flavourful. Perhaps the best part of the experience was our server, Chris. He was efficient, happy to oblige small requests and kept his eye on us. He was great. I have been here several times but this was easily the best visit yet. I love it here and can't wait to go back.

    While we enjoyed Olives, they do not open until 5 for dinner, making it difficult to have a leisurely meal before an early show. Wait to eat after the show or be ready to rush through the good food.

    Olives is one of my favorite places to dine. Their wine list is always top notch. I had the steak sandwich with thinly sliced onion rings. The steak was prepared perfect. My wife had scallops with risotto. The scallops were tender and full of flavor. I would recommend the food to anyone, and the service was adequate and timely.

    The food was ok, nothing special but what stood out and is the deciding factor in me never returning was the poor service. I noticed that a lot in Las Vegas where we would wait and wait either to be greeting at asked for our drink orders or what happened at olives, we asked for our check and we watched our waiter go from table to table to table either going to get food and delivering , schmoozing with a large table, pouring water and everything else imaginable but, bringing our check. We waited over 15 min for him to finally bring our check.

    I feel the restaurant would be more appealing for a bigger audience if there was a broader food list. There is your current list but I would also add some classics like spegetti and meatballs, chicken parm, etc. not everyone likes the higher end food choices. Sure we can go to the buffet for something like that but sometimes you want to sit down in an elegant setting and me Serbs that too

    This was the 2nd visit for my wife and I, given that our first visit was a memorable and enjoyable evening. Unfortunately, our table pre-booked for 6:30pm many weeks in advance and confirmed, didn't materialise until 8:15pm!! Not a good start. We sat in a nice location on the patio overlooking the fountains. Our waiter then introduced himself (cannot recall his name) and came across as pushy and irritating. The sommelier then introduced herself, far more diplomatic, courteous and unobtrusive. Our chosen red wine was fine, but the main course was a bit too salty for our liking. Overall, not as good as our last visit several years ago, and a not so caring approach noted of the waiters. Too keen to have you vacate your long-awaited table!

    When I made the reservation on open table, I put in the note that we were celebrating a birthday. When we walked up to the hostess stand, the first thing they did was tell my husband Happy Birthday. Gave us a great table by the window (it was too hot to sit outside this day.) Every employee there took the extra effort to be friendlier than necessary, and I had the feeling that had nothing to do with the birthday. It was a fun lunch experience! The food was phenomenal as well (roasted half chicken and a butternut squash pasta thing) then they brought a special bday dessert of cream puffs with a lit candle before the dessert we actually ordered arrived (donut/beignet balls with strawberry jam - silly good). I would return here over & over!

    I'm a bit torn only giving this three stars, but I'll admit it was probably the least favorite restaurant we visited in our week in Vegas. The food was really very good, but the noise level was way beyond energetic. I literally had to raise my voice to talk across the table to my wife. If you are fortunate enough to be seated outside, the view of the fountains at night is spectacular. I assume the noise level is lower there too. Service was OK, but again nothing spectacular. Not on my list of the top five places to return to on our next trip.

    Everyone goes to this restaurant for the view of the Bellagio fountains which are amazing. The food is not amazing. It's very average. I paid $49 for the thinnest fillet mignon I've ever gotten in a restaurant which was overcooked. My mother's salmon was fishy and tough. I believe this restaurant doesn't care about the quality of food because it's catering to tourist. I've been to Prime and their chef takes care of their customers. The view from Cosmopolitans restaurant is equally if not more amazing. ;)

    Food was excellant as was the service. The server was incredibly friendly and as we were ordering was suggesting other things that were great recommendations. My only complaint is A. the restaurant is very dark. I think it is so people can see the fountains outside and B. it is very noisey. there were several loud tables around us and i couldn't here across the table. But food and service was excellent

    You'd think when making a reservation 2 weeks in advance that they would try to accommodate us. Especially considering that it was my wife's birthday and our anniversary. I requested a view seat but did not get one. I wasn't even placed next to a window. I had the view of the window 1 table away. Just terrible. The hostess was a bit too blunt for my liking. That being said our waiter, John, did provide us exceptional service. After doing some careful research I learned that the OLiVES lease has not been renewed by Bellagio. I worried about this prior to our dinner and certainly my experience echoed my concern.

    It was loud and chaotic, hard to carry on a conversation. The bar appeared to be hopping, but we couldn't get a seat there. They couldn't accommodate our party on the patio, so we were very disappointed as we were celebrating two birthdays in our party of eight. The food is good, but slightly overpriced. I don't think we'll go back for dinner, but we'll have lunch there again. We enjoyed that much more.

    Dined on a Saturday night, got a table with a window view of the fountains. Service was fast and professional, the food was superb. LOVED the beef carpaccio. The servers were friendly and gave very good advice on dishes. We originally wanted a few more items but the server told us that we were ordering way too much food and we'd have a hard time eating it all. he was exactly correct and we left satiated and happy. He didn't just take the order and collect the money. Would recommend to anyone and we will be going back.
