    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!

    We had the great pleasure of dining at Yellowtail as part of our anniversary trip to Las Vegas. We were seated on the terrace overlooking the amazing Bellagio fountains; I'm not sure which was most impressive -- the fountains, the food, or the service! I'd have to declare it a three-way tie for first!

    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..

    I planned a 3 day getaway for my daughter's 28th birthday and wanted her bday dinner to be special in every way. When they seated us on the terrace as the fountains were putting on a show, we knew that nothing could top that ever again. Our server was extremely charming but reserved, very helpful as he let us enjoy each course at our leisure. Food was superb. The only downside was that we will never be able to duplicate that night again.

    This was my first visit to Yellowtail and I was so impressed. When we're feeling like sushi, we usually go to Koi but I'm so glad we tried Yellowtail. The spicy tuna, toro, red dragon, shrimp tempura rolls were all delicious and we could taste how fresh the fish was. Very impressive! The rolls are pricey but worth it for a nice dinner out. I'm also new to sake, so I samples two and wasn't a fan so I opted to stick with water. Our waiter was determined (in a good way) to help me find a drink, so he brought another sample. This time it was a sparkling blueberry sake and delicious! I don't even like blue drinks but this was so unique and pleasant, I had to have a glass.

    We always request dining on the patio overlooking the Bellagio fountains. The food is wonderful and especially the popping spicy crab rolls are to die for. Everything we ordered was fabulous, tasty, and expertly prepared. The food ordered, however, always comes out very quickly. If you don't want to be rushed, I would suggest telling your server to slow it down a bit so that you can enjoy it more. They graciously accommodated us in this regard and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Yellowtail.

    Can't wait to visit Las Vegas to come back here again! the big-eye tuna pizza lived up to the hype and the salmon skin roll was fabulous, as delicious as it was beautiful. the seaweed salad was prepared in a flash and combined my favorite "ocean salad" with wakame seaweed. The hamachi with jalapeno was so beautiful, a dish found in many Japanese restaurants, but I loved the crispy kalbi sushi roll topped with slaw and the special live scallop sashimi recommended by our server was a nice end to the sushi we enjoyed. (fresh, top grade uni here). Nice desserts and the view of the Bellagio fountains. I love this place!
