Dining With an Outdoor Seating Option and a View of the Bellagio Fountains
PRIME Steakhouse, Picasso, and Spago all provide guests with not only a fine dining experience, but also a front row view of the famous Bellagio Fountains. Grabbing a seat outside on each restaurant’s patio can be difficult, so you’ll want to make sure to call ahead and make reservations directly with a staff member. The Bellagio Concierge Services can also be very helpful with this. Keep in mind that the patio is open most the year, but there will be some periods where it will be closed.
Picasso Restaurant in the Bellagio is a one of a kind dining experience to say the least. There’s not many restaurants you can visit where the walls are decorated with 20th century masterpieces worth millions of dollars. Couple that with renowned Executive Chef Julian Serrano, and you have the perfect combination of elegance and flavor.
The dining experience is elevated by the incredible views of the famous Bellagio Fountains, as well as a cellar stocked with over 1,500 wine selections from some of the best vineyards throughout Europe. For a signature experience, Picasso offers guests an outdoor dining option on their patio overlooking the Bellagio Fountains. The dishes are inspired by the regional cuisine of Spain and France and Picasso rotates their menu to ensure they are using fresh and seasonal ingredients to prepare each dish.
The menu degustation (tasting) offers guests a 5 course meal that includes the Maine Lobster Salad, Pan Seared U-10 Day Boat Scallop, Foie Gras, a choice of steaks or fish (Japanese Wagyu Filet Mignon | Chilean Sea Bass | Prime Petit Filet Mignon), and of course a featured dessert.
Guests may also choose the 4 course prix fixe menu offering a wider variety of dishes including highlights such as Poached Oysters, Sauteed Crispy Gnocchi, and Sauteed Fillet of Branzino. Be sure to ask a helpful and friendly sommelier at Picasso about wine pairings for whichever dishes you decide on for dinner.
PRIME Steakhouse is hands down one of the best steakhouses on the Las Vegas Strip. This is another one of Bellagio’s restaurants that offers an amazing view of the fountain show, as well as an outdoor patio seating option for a more intimate and front row view. With four-star celebrity chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten at the helm, you won’t be disappointed.
Located just past the casino floor and between the Shops at Bellagio, turn right and head down the short escalator to PRIME Steakhouse. You’ll enter into a dining room decorated in chocolate brown, Tiffany blue, water-themed canvas walls, and baccarat chandeliers. This classy steakhouse is perfect for celebrating a special occasion, entertaining clients, or treating yourself to an outstanding meal and fine dining experience.
The menu has a variety of freshly sourced seafood, shareable appetizers, and refreshing salads to accompany your meal. But let’s not distract from the main attraction, the steaks. Featuring only the finest cuts of meat, PRIME’s menu offers guests options that include Dry Aged Bone In Ribeye, Mishima Wagyu Ribcap, Soy-Garlic Glazed New York Strip, and of course A5 Japanese Wagyu. With plenty of sides to enhance your meal and desserts to finish it off, be sure to try PRIME Steakhouse on your next visit to Bellagio.
When it comes to famous and long standing household names in the Las Vegas culinary scene, Wolfgang Puck is among those at the top. Spago is Wolfgang Puck’s flagship fine dining restaurant in Las Vegas. Located on prime real estate at the Bellagio overlooking the fountains, Spago offers guests a new chic and contemporary dining experience. Floor to ceiling floating glass windows surround the room allowing diners to enjoy the water works with their meal. Outdoor patio seating adds a next level experience if you’re lucky enough to get a table.
Puck brings new flavors to the menu at Spago influenced by California cuisine and inspired by weekly trips to the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Serving both lunch and dinner, the menus boasts a variety of wood-oven pizzas, fresh seafood, all-natural meats and prime steaks, and handmade pastas.
Menu highlights include the East and West Coast Oysters, Smoked Salmon Pizza, Lobster Linguine, Papardelle Bolognese, Miso Marinated Salmon, and the Bone-In Rib Steak. The dessert menu rotates seasonally and with a fully stocked bar, be sure to try one of their signature handcrafted cocktails.
Dining With a View of the Bellagio Fountains
Although these restaurants don’t offer an outdoor seating option, you still get to see the majestic fountain show while enjoying your meal. With a wide selection of different cuisines from all around the world, LAGO, Le Cirque, Yellowtail, Jasmine, and The Mayfair is never a disappointment. For the best view of the fountains, either LAGO or Jasmine will be your best choice out of the 5 restaurants. Be sure to call ahead and make reservations. Many of these restaurants are booked out months in advance and trust me, everyone is asking for the best fountain view table!
LAGO by Julian Serrano
LAGO is one of the most beautiful fine dining restaurants in the Bellagio. With floor to ceiling panoramic views that overlook the Bellagio fountains and an interior decor of sparkling white and a hint of ombre blue, it almost feels as though you’ve stepped into a crystal palace deep beneath the ocean.
Italian cuisine is at the forefront of Chef Julian Serrano’s focus. LAGO is all about small plates that are shared at the table. The menu features fresh seafood, soups and salads, pizzas, and pastas and risottos. Some of the menu highlights include the Seared Scallops, LAGO Salad, LAGO Pizzetta, Seafood Risotto, Branzino, and Chicken Parmigiana.
If you’re looking for an aqua cool atmosphere along with a restaurant that encourages the table to share, socialize, and experience each bite together, LAGO is the perfect place on the Las Vegas Strip.
Vivid and vibrant are the two words that come to mind when describing not only the atmosphere but each dish at Le Cirque Restaurant in the Bellagio. With its bright and bold colors, this lakeside restaurant brings French cuisine to a whole new level.
Choose from three different menus offering 5-8 course options. Highlights of the menus include Roasted Rohan Duck, Japanese Wagyu Loin, Winter Truffle Risotto, Main Diver Scallop, and the Ora King Salmon.
World class sommeliers meet the world class wine selection that is made available to patrons at Le Cirque. With over 900 selections of wine from some of France’s best wine regions, indulge in everything this classy French restaurant has to offer.
The Mayfair Supper Club
The Mayfair Supper Club is glamor, artistry, and cuisine all put together in a fine dining restaurant in the Bellagio. Set against the backdrop of the Bellagio Fountains, this supper club reminds me of a modern speakeasy. With live jazz music at dinner and a “Mayfair After Dark” performance on Friday and Saturday nights, this restaurant sets itself apart from the rest.
The Mayfair focuses on high quality seafood and steaks with a contemporary twist. Shellfish, sushi, and caviar dominate the seafood section, as supper club classics such as Prime Filet Mignon, Garlic Crusted Prime Rib, and Dry-Aged Prime Tomahawk fills in the rest.
Menu highlights include the Seafood Tower, Wagyu and Caviar Hand Roll, Caviar Service, The Wedge Salad, A5 Wagyu New York Strip Steak, Whole Dover Sole, Grilled Shrimp, Truffle Pasta, and Beef Fried Rice.
Be sure you make a reservation as The Mayfair is often booked 2-3 months in advance, especially if you’re trying to grab a weekend evening.
Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge
Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge is the perfect spot to dine if you’re looking for Asian fusion food. Drawing inspiration from Japanese, Korean, and American cuisines, Yellowtail offers the perfect blend of classic and modern dishes to satisfy any palette.
When coming through the entrance you notice a long narrow bar with plenty of bar top high chairs and TVs. Go all the way down and then around the corner and the room opens up into an expansive space that overlooks the Fountains at the Bellagio. Decorated in a warm and elegant wood and stone theme, Executive Chef Akira Back has a perfect canvas to deliver his innovative culinary dishes.
Enjoy cool or warm shared plates consisting of some of the finest and freshest seafood flown in daily from all over the world. Entrees like Yuja Salmon, Jidori Chicken, or Braised Wagyu Beef Short Ribs will leave you wanting more. Yellowtail also has a wide selection of classic sashimi, sushi, and rolls, as well as contemporary specialty rolls.
Menu highlights include Akira Back Tuna Pizza, Angry Yellowtail, Tempura Lobster, Rock Shrimp with Korean Chili Aioli, Kagoshima A5 Wagyu, Boiled Atlantic Black Cod, Omakase (Chef’s Choice), Tataki Salad, “AB” Crispy Kalbi Roll, Mile High Roll, and Black & White Sesame Matcha Cake.
Don’t forget to check out the cocktail menu and the extensive collection of sake, beer, and whiskey from all across Japan.
Self-described as the “exquisite garden”, Jasmine Chinese Restaurant in the Bellagio brings the traditional flavors of Nouvelle Hong Kong cuisine to their guests at this beautiful lakeside restaurant. A blend of Cantonese, Szechwan, and Hunan cuisines offers a wide range of selection and variety when it comes to the Jasmine menu.
The atmosphere can only be described as breathtakingly beautiful. There is an element of formalness but only in presentation and service. Add an open concept feel to the room while overlooking the Bellagio Fountains and there’s not much more you can do to improve Jasmine.
Having dined many times at Jasmine, I can confidently say that you won’t be disappointed with either the food or the ambience. The menu features many traditional Chinese dishes, as well as recreated ones that add a touch of innovation.
Any selection from the live tank is prepared immaculately and I highly recommend the ginger and scallion preparation option. The Soft Shell Crab and Potstickers are a great choice to start with while waiting for your live tank selection to be prepared. Wor Wonton Soup and the Corn Chowder are perfect for a rare cold and windy Las Vegas evening. The absolute must have item? The Peking Duck. Be sure you’re extra hungry or you are dining with another as it’ll be a lot of food. It’s prepared tableside and in two courses. The first course comes with crepes and a plum sauce accompaniment. The second course is served as a lettuce cup. Simple divine.
Specialty Dining in a More Secluded Location
Look, I get it. Sometimes you don’t really want to be where the action is. Vegas can be a lot and it can be nice to find a restaurant where you can get away and peacefully enjoy your meal. Maybe you’ve seen the Bellagio Fountains enough times and it’s not as interesting anymore. Well, you’re in luck because Michael Mina and Harvest restaurants in the Bellagio offer you just that without any compromise to quality and flavor.
For all you seafood lovers out there, Michael Mina at the Bellagio is the restaurant for you. Chef Michael Mina curates the menu and he’s a stickler for only the freshest seafood the seas have to offer. That’s why this restaurant actually flies in their seafood selections daily by private plane! Add attention to detail in flavors and presentation to each dish and you have yourself an extraordinary dining experience.
Located right at the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the restaurant adds a touch of calm with its decor in comparison to their neighbor outside. You’ll notice warm earthy tones and lots of wood surrounding the restaurant with plenty of bar, table, and booth seating for guests. Don’t be surprised to see fresh seafood on display as you walk through the restaurant.
The menu features some of the finest selections of caviar and shellfish to start. Michael Mina provides guests the option of having their shellfish served on ice or prepared and served hot over a charcoal grill. Appetizers include Hokkaido Scallop Crudo, Lobster Gnocchi, and Ahi Tuna Tartare. The signature dishes like Michael Mina’s Applewood-Smoked Branzino and Lobster Pot Pie are a must.
Harvest Restaurant in the Bellagio is probably one of my most favorite casual restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. They focus on seasonal and fresh ingredients that provide diners with healthier food options without sacrificing any of the wonderful flavors. Harvest only uses the best cuts of beef, organic poultry, and fresh sustainable seafood.
Decorated in granite with glass walls showcasing the performance of the chefs in the kitchen, Harvest has a clean, open, and casual atmosphere. It’s tucked away past the Bellagio Conservatory and near the Spa Tower. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main casino floor where most of Bellagio’s restaurants are located, Harvest is perfect.
The menu features a big selection of small and large plates that are great for individuals and for sharing. Each dish regardless of the featured item comes with fresh vegetables or has vegetables creatively used in its construction.
Menu highlights include the Harvest Naan Bread, Yellowtail Crudo, Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps, Baby Kale Salad, Pork Chop, Wild Isles Salmon, Roasted Honeynut Squash, Crushed Potatoes, and Brussel Sprouts.
Casual Sit Down Restaurants in the Bellagio
Fancy and fine dining isn’t for everyone and every situation. I’ve often preferred the hotel and casino cafe over many of the other options. If you’re traveling with young children or have busy plans throughout the day, it’s often easier to choose something casual than to add more to the plate… pun intended! You can’t go wrong with Sadelle’s Cafe, Noodles, or The Buffet at the Bellagio.
Located in the Bellagio Conservatory right next to Michael Mina is Sadelle’s Cafe. This gem of a spot is the perfect place to grab any meal of the day. Serving breakfast all day long, enjoy a variety of egg dishes, breakfast meats, and items from the griddle like blueberry pancakes or French toast.
If you’re there for lunch or dinner, choose from a number of sandwich and burger options. There’s salads and other nutritious sides if you’re looking for something a bit healthier. A variety of entrees and specialty dishes round out this extensive menu at Sadelle’s Cafe. Needless to say, there’s something for everyone.
Noodles is a Pan-Asian restaurant that brings a wide variety of authentic regional dishes from Thailand, Japan, China, and Vietnam. Tucked away and near the Baccarat Bar and Room, Noodles can be easy to miss. But don’t let that stop you because the food here is worth coming for.
Beyond the large selection of Asian noodle and rice dishes, you’ll also find congee (rice porridge), seafood options, as well as barbecue and roasts.
Menu highlights include Hot and Spicy Cucumber, Tempura Shrimp, Oxtail Soup, Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles, Cantonese Dumpling Noodles, Kung Pao Shrimp, Mongolian Beef, Mapo Tofu, Crabmeat Fried Rice, Congee, Pad Thai, Yaki Udon, Szechuan Spicy Fish, and Cantonese Roast Duck.
The Buffet at The Bellagio
Everyone loves a good buffet and The Buffet at The Bellagio is one of the best. The Buffet brings the world of food all under one roof through the culinary expertise and collaboration of the team of chefs. From Italian, Japanese, Chinese, to American cuisines, The Buffet at The Bellagio has it all.
Try a little of everything and try as much as you want. That’s the best part about a buffet, right? There are even cooking stations where the chefs will prepare your dish right in front of you. Finish off your meal with a trip (or two) to the personalized gelato stand.
Quick Eats – Drinks – Coffee – Desserts
This section is all about quick and easy. Whether you’re looking for breakfast items, something to drink, or maybe a sweet treat to satisfy your cravings, there’s an option at the Bellagio to meet your every need.
If you’re in the mood for some gelato, a specialty drink, or just a quick bite, head on over to Cafe Gelato. They have salads and hot sandwiches if you’re hungry, pastries and some amazing gelato if you’re wanting something sweet, and you can grab a smoothie or a coffee drink if you just need a little pick me up.
Every casino needs an eatery that’s open 24/7 and Snacks is that spot at the Bellagio. Whether you’re looking to grab something quick and easy in between rolls at the craps table or it’s four in the morning and you’re finishing up a hot run at the blackjack table and you’re hungry, head over to Snacks. They have salads, burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, breakfast items, fries and other sides, coffees, and much more.
Palio is a cafe located by the Bellagio pool entrance. It’s a cute little cafe that overlooks the pool area and offers guests at the Bellagio a quick and easy option for breakfast or a light snack. They have coffees, specialty drinks, sandwiches, salads, and assorted breakfast and pastry items.
Whether you’re looking for a coffee and pastry for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, or perhaps a sweet crepe or creamy gelato for an after dinner treat, Bellagio Patisserie is a great choice. They also have boxed chocolates and sweets that are perfect if you’re looking for a gift or souvenir on your way home.
Pool Cafe & Bar
If you’re spending a day at the Bellagio pool, know that you won’t have to go far if you get hungry or thirsty. Bellagio pool staff regularly roam the ground making sure guests are well taken care of. The Pool Cafe & Bar menu has Fruit Plates, Wraps, Sandwiches, Salads, a Burger, and alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) beverages. Remember that The Pool Cafe & Bar is only open during pool season.
No need to go into too much detail about Starbucks but I wanted to make sure the list was complete of all the places you can get something to eat or drink at the Bellagio! Enjoy everything Starbucks has to offer.
Juice Press is an all organic grab and go style food and drink spot. Juice Press is fantastic if you’re looking to grab something healthy to drink. Proteins, antioxidants, and superfood greens smoothies are the ideal drink in Vegas to help detox your body and keep you feeling sharp. Try one of their blended bowls if you’re looking for a healthy food option.
The Bellagio Hotel and Casino is an amazing resort filled with incredible restaurants. There’s something for everyone and for every occasion. Whichever restaurants or eateries you choose, you can’t go wrong. I hope this guide was helpful and thanks for checking us out here at The Las Vegas Report!
