    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.

    Have eaten at Olives a number of times and it has never disappointed. Ralph the waiter is great! The ricotta ravioli is my favorite entree. The desserts and appetizers are always awesome. We love this place and the view of the fountain show is just the frosting on the cake! GREAT restaurant!

    Dry and cold chiken that tasted like boiled chiken for 29$, overcooked gnocchi, watery lobster mac and cheese( not creamy at all) This was our dinner at olives.... We dined at Giada the day before, for the same price and it was much more tastefull and quality food!!!! I felt robbed by olives!!!! Never again

    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

    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!

    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.

    Olives was a perfect place to celebrate our daughter's 25th birthday. We were seated at a beautiful table by the window within 5 minutes of our reservation. The food was delicious and the presentations beautiful. The view of the Bellagio water show was amazing! Lovely birthday dessert presented to our daughter. Thrilled with this choice.

    A dependable spot, nothing exciting in the room and nothing exciting on the menu either...nothing to complain about, a solid experience, but the only wow factor is watching Bellagio's fountains. Before an event a good spot for dinner but I wouldn't go there for a special evening.

    70' decor on the inside. We decide to eat on the window to stay out of the heat but you really couldn't see the whole show. If you're going for the fountains you really need to get a table on the balcony. Our waiters was really good. The charcuterie (cheese & meat board) was spectacular!!! They had a beet salad on the online menu but not on the daily menu. Our waiter had the kitchen make it for us any way & it was good. The wine list is pretty extensive & the Somalia helped us pick out a nice Barolo. Up to this point everything was perfect. We ordered the sirloin & the sea bass and there was nothing special about these two. It went from being an incredible meal to being a good meal.

    I used to LOVE this restaurant and was really looking forward to dining there again during my last visit to Vegas. The ambiance and service were still good but the food sadly was absolutely horrible this time around. Had the octopus to start which used to be my favorite. While it was still ok, it was definitely not as good as before. Then had the special which was orzo pasta with seafood. The seafood did not taste fresh, plus the pasta was swimming in the sauce - presentation was not appetizing to say the least.

    Gone downhill since we last dined here 5 years ago and it was noteworthy for the food served back then. NOW - Two guest had pasta dishes, both complaind of soggy pasta and some of it was stuck together. Another guest had risotto which was soggy and watery. I had beans which were hard and undercooked. Four guest all underwhelmed by their food experience. It was a special experience for our anniversary so we didn't complain and just wanted to leave without add more angst to the evening. Olives relies on its location by the Bellagio fountains and its past reputation. It was very very poor as far as the food experience. I would expect more from a Todd English restaurant.

    We were seated in the middle of a busy intersection within the restaurant. The waiter and staff seemed a bit off on their timing on meal service and our waiter was just ok. I will note the sommelier was outstanding and very personable. This made up for the lack of decorum that was demonstrated by some of the wait staff. This was our second time to visit and I doubt if we will return in the future.

Still again our favorite place in Vegas. This time we had the surf and turf, steak, shrimp and lobster all cooked to perfection. Desserts were amazing as well, the banana tiramisu and passion fruit crème brulee were a perfect end to a perfect meal
