Enjoyed it, as most times, very much. Unique courses, excellently prepared. The starting point is obtaining quality food and that they do very well (and they should for the price). The plates which end up in front of the diner always look incredible and taste even better. Awesome food, wish they would take their foot off the gas pedal on the wine prices...........that being said - - no need to spend $350 on that which one can get at the shop for $60 - go wine by the glass; extremely good quality and you won't get soaked!!!!

Most impressed by busboy service. Plates were picked up the instant we finished the last bite and water was refilled throughout the evening without having to request. Waiter did a good job too of providing good service without the arrogance of some high class restaurants. He thanked me for the tip.

I am a Concierge , a foodie and a follower of the Chefs, and like cooking easy , healthy and gourmet. I haven't patronized Picasso yet, but someday soon and would cherish the experience. However, I book my guests on my natural ability to discern the Chefs talents, and food experiences. It 's French, and can't go wrong!

Beautiful presentation of food and restaurant, but lacked the complexity I expect with French influenced cuisine. My selection was "upgraded" to include white truffle and Kobe beef. Despite choosing wisely, I felt short chained by not experiencing a meal that I would be ruminating over.
If I return, it will only be to enjoy the impeccable view of the fountain with my wife. Oh wait, the restaurant can't guarantee the table irrespective of booking well in advance. Why did I come here again? I am not shy about spending money on a well executed experience, but nothing worse than spending it, only to be disappointed. Better options on the strip for that budget. The Wagyu steak I had at SW Steakhouse 2 nights prior was a memorial experience at a lower price. To put in perspective, my steak at SW Steakhouse was about $40 per ounce (6oz steak) well worth the night.

Even thought we sat outside and enjoy the view of the dancing waters of the Bellagio... it was disappointed not to hear the music from the dancing fountains, instead we were listening to the heavy rock loud music from the bar next door...so at the end its was a Romantic Evening with Rock/HeavyMetal Music

The poached oysters and Maine lobster dishes were to die for. The premium wines paired with the prix fix menu were fabulous.
Unfortunately these items do not come cheap. For me the whole experience was incredible. But, hey, not everyone likes Picasso. I do.

While the food was excellent, I cannot recommend Picasso due to the indifferent service and uneven pacing of the courses. I expect more from a 2 star Michelin, 5 Diamond AAA restaurant. At $750 for the two of us it was a poor value. Our evening started inauspiciously when the hostess sat us at a table in the middle of the wait staff/guest traffic pattern. She declined our request to be reseated to a less congested area. My wife and I ordered the “degustation menu” with the premium wine pairing. We felt rushed through the first two courses and then often ignored through the next three. When serving, the wait staff provided perfunctory explanations of the dishes and preparation. The sommalier was sparse in describing the premium wine selection and only became more informative after my wife evidenced her knowledge of viniculture with her questions. It was difficult to enjoy the otherwise excellently prepared food as the wait staff continuously passed hurriedly on each side of our table, generating a small breeze that at times ruffled my wife’s hair. In all it was the text book example how inadequate service and a poor table location will combine to overwhelm good food and spoil a special occasion.

Quality of food is REALLY not in line with the prices. My fish was dry. The pate de fois had a litle more flavor than butter, but was so buttery it was inedible. Real French pate does not make you feel like you are eating a hunk of butter. The chef is cheap and trying to save the fois gras in the pate. The veggies were so imitation elegant they were practically nonexistent. Good French food is not skimpy and does not leave you feeling semi-hungry (I am weight and height apropriate with average appetite). Even an ordinary restaurant in France puts the food in this place to shame for the price. Picasso is like so many other things in Vegas - boastful, lacking subtance to back up its claims, and overpriced.
Service was good, but I had to keep asking for water and waiter kept walking by without looking up. Cocktails were tasty.

I didn't have patience for the course set of meal... wait little long for every plate! I expected The waiter explain on the main courses and give recommendation, but he fail to do so for this type of fine-dining restaurant. Everything is small and wait too long for every plate and of course over-priced maybe because it's Art. The waiter wasn't attentive when we needed them, besides clearing off the plates and bringing the foods to us...

We went to Picasso's about 10 years ago and it was quite good. This time around, we decided to try them again and was very disappointed. Perhaps the chef wasn't there that evening, not sure what happened. Service and ambiance were very good, which made up for the lack luster food. Hoping it was just a fluke!

More than a bit of a disappointment. We do not spending a lot for an exceptional meal. But this was a LOT of money for a good meal. Moreover, although the menu had only a degustation and tasting menu, a key team listed on both was unavailable -- and we were dining early in the evening. Service was excellent and solicitous. The wine selection was expansive and impressive, but everything was priced between 25 percent to 100 percent more than it would be in a similar caliber restaurant in New York or Los Angeles. Four people dined. Three of us had a single glass of wine each. No cocktails, no extra charge items. The bill came to more than $650 before the tip. And you are expected to drop a couple of hundred more as you wend your way through the casino en route to the restaurant. We did not gamble at the tables. Out only bet in LV was that this would be an extraordinary meal. As usual. The customer lost and the house won.

Awesome place for a special dinner ! The atmosphere and food were wonderful . The service was fabulous . Most delicious food we have ever eaten ! Very relaxing , about two and half hours for the meal . Is expensive but worth it for a special occasion !

Food is excellent, but my lamb entree was extremely small and 1/3 of it was fat. The appetizer was actually bigger than the entree. We also went with the wine pairing per course, but it was more like a taste of wine, so I would recommend getting a bottle instead. But over all it the experience was very nice

Wrote earlier. Party's photographer on the terrace blinded us repeatedly for over half an hour. Loudmouth Englishman on his cell phone was distracting from the ambience but he only spoke in one or two syllable words so it was barely tolerated

Picasso is a special occasion restaurant. We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. We chose the prix fixe menu with the wine pairing. The pairing was done by individual, so we had different wines when we selected different items for the course. Décor and service were excellent - décor includes original Picasso art works. Food and wine pairing were also excellent, but honestly not as good as some other special places we've been to.
Since it was our anniversary, they were sure to give us a window table with a great view of the Bellagio fountains.
I would highly recommend restaurant for a special occasion, but be prepared to spend a lot of money.

We were hoping Picasso would be on par with Lago (also run by Julian Serrano) but we were a bit disappointed. We were seated outside on the patio and had a spectacular view of the fountains of Bellagio. Although our seats were great, Picasso apparently allows smoking on the patio which was bothersome. We each had the tasting menu which consisted of four courses: Lobster Salad, Seared Scallop, Foie Gras, Colorado Lamb, and two desserts (chocolate cake w/ice cream & pineapple tart). The Lobster Salad was good; chilled and fresh, but not as flavorful as we had hoped. The Seared scallop was by far the best course of the meal; perfectly cooked and served atop potato puree. The Foie Gras was a generous portion and served with sous vide cherries. The cherries were great, however, we thought the foie gras's consistency was too gelatinous. We expected the lamb to be the highlight of the meal, but we were both disappointed; almost completely flavorless meat. Neither of us finished the lamb. The chocolate and pineapple desserts were both good, but not memorable.

Picasso is an experience. The paintings are spectacular. It was like eating in a museum. THe wire was great, the service was impeccable, the food was good but not great. So depending on what you are looking for this may or may not be a good choice.

WOW! We had the best time. We did not allow ourselves enough time. The presentations are all works of art. This is a first class, top shelf restaurant and be prepared to pay for this luxury. The courses are brought out SLOWLY which we enjoyed. We were given plenty of time to enjoy each course and they were all amazing. It is by far the nicest meal we have ever enjoyed. Next time we are in Vegas, this will be on out list of things to do and it will replace a show.
