Once again, Lago did not disappoint! This is my go to place in Vegas for special occasions. The cocktails at the bar before dinner were excellent. The host staff were friendly and accommodating. Our wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly. They offer just the right amount of service, letting us enjoy the view - which is absolutely second to none. Food was great and the sommelier made good pairing suggestions throughout the meal. I cannot recommend Lago highly enough.

Best restaurant we went to on our trip. The best clam sauce and rib eye steak we ever had. The views of the fountain were incredible as well. This is the spot to check out and fairly priced.

This was our first time dining at Lago and although sitting overlooking the Bellagio Fountain can be a fun experience, the restaurant is too much hype for the price. Once we were seated we waited more than 15 minutes for someone to approach our table. I finally had to ask the hostess to send someone over so we could order a drink. The food was good but very overpriced and the service is very slow and inconsistent.

My wife and I weren’t happy about our anniversary dinner at Lagos. We arrived at our designated time (9pm), just to be told it was a 10 minute wait. Which is completely agreeable giving it was Friday night. After the 10 minutes had passed we asked again and they said it would be another 30 minutes. Meanwhile we were seeing people getting seated after we showed up. Then after 30 more minutes they said it would be another 10 minutes. At this point it was almost 10pm and we were starving. They eventually seat us, and when we got to our table we noticed open tables and people just sitting at their table not ordering food or drinks. It’s like they just needed a place to chill with their friends and order only a minimal amount to be considered a paying customer. We ate super fast and left with a nasty taste in our mouth of how horrible it was. I don’t plan on going back or recommending that place ever as being a “nice restaurant” in Las Vegas to anyone.

Had the fixed price menu - pizza, lasagna and limoncello dessert. Food was outstanding. Also had a seat near the window and was able to see the fountains as a bonus. Waiter never refilled my water lol but overall would return for the food for sure.

We came for my husband’s 40th birthday dinner, so I had requested a table with a fountain view. We got the perfect table! So beautiful! The menu is a bit limited and more basic, so it’s more worth it to come here for the atmosphere than anything else. The portions were smaller, which is great when you’re on a trip and don’t want to have leftovers. It would have been better if the birthday dessert was complimentary, especially since it was a tiny tiramisu that we shared. But they did put a candle in it, which was a nice touch, of course.

With a reservation I had to wait 45 mins while people after me with no reservation were seated & yes with fountain views. The hostess was rude & dismissive - then seated us in a back room. I will NEVER recommend this place to anyone

We had told them and even called in advance about trying to get better seating and they had told us just walk in first come first serve even after I tried to offer more.
The server who had approached us did not do his job until he was scolded by a manager or another employee for disregarding us as customers tryin to order food. Which we waited 20 min and had to have someone else on the dining room floor take our orders instead

Our experience was very nice due to having an incredible view which is the water fountains. The food was ok. There is not a lot of variety and the taste is not the best. Coming out from there we felt like we’re paying for were we are sitting than for what we are eating. Understandable. I would recommend for a special occasion. Make sure you reserve but do keep in mind if you want patio sitting with first view to water fountains you will have to wait even with reservation. Plan ahead .

The check-in experience was quite lousy and the hostess was inattentive and many people behind us were let in first while we waited an extra 15min. Sort of defeats the purpose of reservations.

Nonetheless we got check in and brought to our table.

Would have to say that the food overall was average and not worth the value compared to the closed Jullian Serranos. They don’t really know how to make proper bruschetta.

This was my first time dining at Lago. I took my college age daughter and her friend out for dinner. We had a reservation through Open Table and I requested an outside table to watch the water fountains. We arrived a few minutes before the reservation, but had to wait 30 minutes to get the outside table. The outside table was worth the wait, but I don’t expect to wait that long when I have a reservation. The menu is set up to order multiple individual items and then share them among your table, but I was unaware of that when we ordered, so we didn’t order enough food at first. Our waiter was very professional and placed a second order for us, but I was worried because I had been told when seated that we would only get the table for 90 minutes. The prices for each individual item were also what I expected to pay for an entire meal with sides included. After considering the amazing water display and the perfection of the food, I realize the price is reflective of the quality of the dining experience, not just the food on the plate. The atmosphere is relaxing and exciting at the same time. My daughter mentioned that it would be a perfect place for a wedding proposal if you were someone who didn’t mind public proposals. I would definitely return to Lago, and with a better idea of what to expect.

I chose the lasagna which was the worst I've ever eaten. The salmon that my husband ate was bad also. The price did not match food quality. Their tipping system is also rigged to NOT ALLOW you to tip less than 20%. Service was good but the whole experience was marred by bad food and bad pay experience. Sad.

The fountains are beautiful however this is an overpriced and underwhelming experience. It is bit touristy. The lobster ravioli was frozen but the mushroom was risotto was ok. Our server seemed disengaged and unwelcoming. I expected more from the Bellagio considering the price point. There are far better options in Vegas!

Overall I gave 4 stars. It was good. Not oh my God to die for. I requested outdoor seating. I knew that it may be unlikely because its first come first serve. Our reservations were for 8:15pm. We ended up getting to the restaurant for 8:25pm. I didnt call ahead because on the confirmation I recieved it said there was a 15 minute window grace period for reservations.
When we got there they said not only were there no seats outside, there were no seats in the dining area either. We had to be sat in the lounge/bar area along the casino walk way, making a $200+ meal as little romantic as it can get. I was disappointed by that but overall food was good and our waitress was great.

This incredible Vegas restaurant has outdoor seating that looks over the Bellagio Fountain! The are having a super "Welcome Back" to Vegas 3 course dinner menu right now that was just spectacular and all for $55 per person. Everything we tried, from the margarita pizza, burrata salad, filet with lobster and decadent masccapone cheesecake was delicious and perfectly prepared. The manger, Gerti, took incredible care of us and our waiter, Fabio, made everything extra perfect. The is our new favorite place to dine in Vegas!

From the time we arrived the hostess was very nice. Wished me a happy birthday. Was pleasant and conversational. Took us to our seat on the patio and let us know we had 1.5 hour time limit. The table was wonderful. We were a row back from the fountain view and the shows were amazing. The music and the sounds the water makes, get me every time. We have dined here before and several others to enjoy the fountain. Our waiter was slow to ask us for drinks and so by time he did we just placed our entire meal. They had a welcome back three course meal we took advantage of. That was the last time we spoke to him. He didn’t come around to ask us for another drink, how dinner was, appetizers, nothing. He seemed to be more attentive to some of the tables around us though. I guess he didn’t like us. But given the restaurant, high class, birthday dinner we expected more from a server at this type of establishment. We finally waved him down for our check and that was that. No happy birthday dessert or asked if I wanted another champagne. Just horrible. The worst thing was having to still tip him. I wish I could have tipped the hostess and those who actually brought us out our food. They were more pleasant than he was. The food was outstanding, the ambiance was wonderful but fell really short on the service.
