    When making plans to visit Las Vegas, Yellowtail is always at the top of our list of restaurants at which to dine. We admit we are food snobs. Yellowtail never disappoints us. The staff is accommodating & attentive, and very helpful in making suggestions. While many restaurants in Las Vegas are all about the number$, Yellowtail is an all around pleasurable experience. While trying to decide which wonderful dishes to order, request the edamame. I am not sure if we are merely lucky, but our seating requests have always been granted. Yellowtail, we will return soon!

  • Overlooking the Fountains
    5yearsandstrong
    Dined on 11/6/2014
    Yellowtail was a delight. Once you overlook the price for portion ratio (tapas to the max.), you will have a wonderful time at this restaurant. Request a table outside overlooking the Bellagio fountains and you won't regret it. The wine list goes on for days. The Japanese beer is limited but full on quality. The appetizers, or shared plates, were decent enough portioned to allow for one app per couple. Others were larger. This is a wonderful spot to take your date as long as you sit outside. Inside isn't bad either, just know that the focus would be towards the food only rather than the additional scenery. This is a great restaurant with a culinary artist running the kitchen. You won't regret the food, but you may exit with a large check.

    The biggest perk of this restaurant in my opinion is the patio dining right next to the Bellagio fountains at night. My wife and I had spectacular front row seats to the performances as we enjoyed cleanly prepared sushi and other items. This is not to say eating elsewhere in the restaurant would not be enjoyable but this was our take on our first visit. The miso soup was the best we have ever had. We also took the gyoza such were steamed and tasted average.3 different rolls which were prepared very nicely. Clean and good good quality. Cocktails were nice but pricy $20 per. Service was attentive. Value is probably not the best and if we were not also eating the scenery we would definitely have looked elsewhere for good sushi.

  • Best Food Experience of Our Trip

    We reserved a patio table in the evening. Arrived early and had drink in bar. Within 5 minutes we were seated and from that moment on we enjoyed the best service, the best ambience, the best wine and food of our 6-day stay. We enjoyed four varied small plates and a dessert. Waiter was perfectly informative, attentive and congenial.

    This was not an inexpensive dinner, but it was well worth it. We sat out on the patio and watched the fountains. We kept ordering courses and more wine just to justify staying out an enjoying the evening - though they never pressured us to leave. The only thing I didn't like were the Thai Chili Edamame. Ick! But they quickly removed it and gave us two bowls of the regular. Run don't walk to the wonderful spot!

    After researching a lot of reviews and recommendations for the best sushi on the strip we settled on this for my birthday dinner celebration. It's a beautiful location and ambience is great (except for inappropriate up tempo music). Our waiter was friendly, but came across a little aloof. Wasn't particularly attentive. We come to Vegas for top notch service (like we get at Wolfgang Puck's CUT). The portions were pitifully small here and the menu offering was too eclectic and difficult to put together a reasonable meal that was completely satisfying. Yes the flavors were there, but overall the experience just didn't live up to our expectations.

    Our group ordered the big eye tuna pizza and it is one of the best things I have eaten in my life. The texture of the tuna and the crunch of the tortilla were superb with big truffle flavor. All the rolls were top notch and the spicy miso was A+. This is a great restaurant with a great staff. I can't wait to come back!!!

  • Excellent - despite loud patrons
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/20/2014
    Everything about this restaurant was superb. The Salmon entrée that I had was amazing and the Ginger creme brûlée was "par excellence." The service was wonderful and the view of the fountains was surely better than any other place on the Bellagio property. There was, however, a group of four people at an adjacent table who were very loud in their conversations such that everyone at any adjacent table was bothered by their rudeness. Despite the rudeness of the people at that table, our dinner at the Yellowtail - Bellagio Hotel was an outstanding dining experience. The reservation process was seamless as well. Thank you so much!

    A friend & I booked an early dinner here before hitting the town. The much lauded Big Eye Tuna pizza did not disappoint. In a word - perfect. The tortilla base was thin and light as air, the tuna perfectly (thinly) sliced, & the touch of truffle oil is amazing. We also enjoyed a salad with sashimi ( fresh & flavorful) and the crab tempura bites in a delicious, light sauce. Our waiter was pretty attentive at first & our food very promptly delivered, but as the restaurant began to fill up we were pretty much ignored. Luckily by then we were happy as clams & just needed our check. Anytime I am in town I will be back for that pizza..
