We had to wait a long time even though we had a reservation, and it was particularly busy the night we were there, so service was slow. The manager did a great job of rectifying the situation and even gave us free dessert. Food was amazing as always.

Our server was very pleasant and other than that we can't really say anything positive about our experience. Our group of 7 was there celebrating a special occasion and the noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation. More importantly the food was average at best. I had the butternut squash tortelli and they were overly sweet. For the price paid we expected better.

The staff gave us a free dessert for our special occasion. It's a nice surprise and sweet gesture. The outdoor seating with the view of the Bellagio Fountain and the vegas strips, eiffel tower in particular, were a hugeee plus. Very special moment. :)

Ordered the scallops and was disappointed. Too much competition on the plate. Very sad, as I come her every time I am in Vegas (about once a year) for the past decade. This is the he first disappointment, and I hope the last!

Beautiful restaurant with some tables having a view of the famed Bellagio fountains. The carpaccio was divine. Pastas were especially good. The steak special was very tasty, but lacked inspiration. Great service; it was a memorable Vegas dinner.

My husband and I were very excited to try Todd English's Olives but were extremely dissapointed with the service and food quality. We had requested a seat outside looking at the fountains and were told it wouldn't be possible due to a wedding party (understandable). However, when we went outside to take in the scenery i was surrounded by at least 10 open 2 top tables.
Next, our server took over 15 minutes to greet us. It was a manager walking by that noticed we still did not have drinks and stopped by to take our order.
Another 20 minutes or so we were finally able to place our dinner order. I will say the beef carpaccio was incredible. However, that was the only enjoyable dish. The octopus dish had no flavor and was in desperate need of salt and pepper. Our pizza was completely burnt around the edges and also lacked seasoning.
Overall, for the overpriced dishes and lacking quality from both the meal and service, i would NOT reccomend Olives.

Made a reservation, still had to wait 20 min. Service is poor due to waitress waiting too many tables. Very loud, having a conversation with people at the same table is difficult. There are many better options in Vegas.

My girlfriends and I were visiting Las Vegas and chose Olives for pre show Cirque de Soleil O. I made an online reservation and requested and received a lovely fountain view table. Our server Paul was excellent. Highly recommended.

The service was great - allowed us to move tables, and willing to mix custom cocktails per our request. Food was outstanding - the veal dish reminded us of our last visit to Venice! The chef came out to meet us after the meal - couldn't have asked for a better experience at the place where we had our very first date fourteen years ago! Our waiter(s) are brothers and both gave us great service and offered to personally help us plan our next visit.

We booked our table weeks in advance with Open Table requesting a outside table. Upon arrival for our reservation we were told no tables were available outside for at another hour and a half. That was ok, until, after being seated, we noticed that the outside tables were practically empty. I do realize outside dining at Olives is on a first basis, but since we had requested in advance, I think they could have tried harder to accommodate our request.
That being said, we did enjoy our evening at Olives as usual.

Went to Olives Bellagio to celebrate Aunt's 86th birthday and had a wonderful lunch on a Monday afternoon of Hanger Steak and White Truffle Pomme Frites. The chef visited our table and asked if we liked the food and why. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We also ordered the Beet and Pear Salad which was presented beautifully and was very tasty. The portions of food are more than adequate. Needless to say we were not hungry when we were finished eating. The Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lava Cake was over-the-top and delicious! Eating at Olives Bellagio is a special treat we look forward to when visiting Las Vegas!

Visited Olives with a combination of vendors, customers, etc. for a business get-together; there were 12 of us total. The two hostesses at the front desk were quite friendly, which given how jamming they were was refreshing. I've encounted many a host/hostess at far less busy spots who were cranky under pressure. The bar area is not large, so we started by standing around the bar as well as outside the restaurant. We were seated pretty close to our reservation time, but given that I added 2 to our original number I give Olives a lot of credit for making this happen on a busy night. We were seated at a private table by a wall of windows overlooking the fountains: a very nice touch and worthy of impressing our customers. Thank you to Olives for this as I hadn't even made this request. The service was excellent, the noise was moderate but reasonable, and the food, which was very good, was served quickly. I did spring for the group photo for everyone at the table. The picture is presented in a very nice plush bifold with a pic of the Bellagio fountains on the left, and our group on the right. It was well worth the price, but don't be shy about asking how much the package costs. In retrospect I should have asked for a bit of a discount given it was 12 pictures total. All in all, I would say Olives did very well.

Looking for a change in the menu and selected Olives. Wonderful Mediterrean cuisine that is dramatically different from the steak scene. The pastas are delicious, the gnocchi is pillowy and not heavy. The seafood risotto was full of seafood. The tables tend to small and crowed when the food arrives. It is dark and loud but overall a good change of menu.

We we were seated on the balcony anticipating a wedding proposal. We ordered 4 meals all of which were cold and sent back.
My Carbonara was flavorless even after I asked for parma cheese.
We were bombarded by people rushing from the inside dining area to the outside area everytime the fountains started a show only to block our view after waiting an extra one and a half hour's to get seated on the balcony to view the show ourselves.
Very disappointed and we will never come back to Olives.

Meal was very good. Waited half hour before being seated even though many open tables were visible from the reception area. And this was finally a table where we were seated.Wait staff was excellent. Taste was great. Waited almost 40 minutes for our meal after the salad . Though wait staff was apologetic no management staff came by to explain the delay. We eat there every visit to Vegas but we may have to explore other options on our next visit.

Stopped here for our last night at the Bellagio and it was an amazing way to say goodbye to Las Vegas. The food was very tastefully done (both flavor and presentation) and the best aspect is that the meal was not ever rushed. We took our time and felt that we could dictate how long we wanted to linger over our food and to just take in the ambiance of this wonderful restaurant.

Sitting on the patio, we were able to not only enjoy some delicious food, but to see the Bellagio fountain shows. We had fabulous service, and the wait staff were very attentive. We will come back again the next time we are in Las Vegas.

We wanted to find somewhere over looking the fountains at the Bellagio and this was perfect, though we didn't sit outside. We had booked but it did seem to be a fairly long wait for those that hadn't, we were seated quickly. Service was very good, all the waiters were very friendly and helpful with any questions about the menu, the table next to us were gluten free which they seemed to be very accommodating to. Food was delicious, most of the menu seemed reasonably priced though there were a few more expensive dishes. Over all I think the price did reflect the great food, good service and a lovely setting.

This is our second visit to Olives. This time we had a great table with view of the Bellagio fountains as it one of our party's birthday. Great food and our Waitress Sylvia was attentive and knowledgable. Even brought us some birthday cookies for us to share!
Will visit again and recommend to others for a special occasion or just somewhere to impress!
