Picasso - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews

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.

If you are looking for one of those most memorable moments in life, Picasso is an excellent venue choice. Not only is this stylish and elegant restaurant located directly beside the world famous Bellagio fountains and their spectacular show, but the food is absolutely divine!
Surprisingly, and even more impressively, as we told our incredible server Blake, was that the positively extraordinary service bested this amazing dinner! Honestly, we dine out in fine restaurants all over the world and Blake is perhaps the most professional server we have encountered. His knowledge, temperament and grace was top rate.
This is truly a fantastic choice for any special occasion, or to treat yourself to one of the finest dining experiences you'll have.

The restaurant itself was certainly gorgeous. The waiter however was pretentious and not very engaging. My date and I selected the Prix Fixe menu. I asked about caviar as an add on and he told me they only had one option for $750 per once, offered no description of what it was until I asked. I mentioned that 1 of the 4 oysters I got was not good and his comment to me was "at least you got 3 good ones". Food was good but certainly not Michelin 2 star worthy. Outside of the waiter the service was good. The pea soup was excellent, as were the "good" oysters. The tuna tare tare was very ordinary as was the Foie Gras au Torchon. The short rib dish was very good however nothing special. The wine I selected was $62 a glass, changed my mind and went to a $32 glass instead. I certainly expected the prices but it was extreme in some cases. The bill was $344 which is actually less then I expected and gave the waiter $500 in cash. He asked if I needed change I said I did (No way I was giving him a 50% tip). He just turned and walked away. He should have just said I'll bring you your change when I handed him the money. My overall rating would have been 3 and 1/2 stars if not for him.

Nice place but Waaay overpriced and the food was good but not great. Bought a wine flight and the Somelier was beside himself that I requested a red after having had three sickening (to me) sweet whites. Was over the top after I told him what I wanted....then the red he recommended was no good. Went back after having a great experience before but won't go back again.

Food was outstanding. With wine pairing and the sommelier had great choices. Presentation was beautiful and service was impeccable. View of the Bellagio fountains topped it off as altogether one of the top restaurants we've dined in the world.

Good French cuisine but didn't hit on all dishes. Party of 3. Chef's complimentary's were very good chocolates at the end bordered on great. Fish (Tai) was overcooked. Venison was excellent. Short ribs OK. Not the depth of flavor I expected. 3 Desserts were all excellent. Pea soup average. Red shrimp was excellent both in freshness and not overcooked. Pate of Foi Gras was OK. Service was abundant and above excellent . Prices were typical of Vegas french but not out of line much.

Nothing to say. Food was superb, place was beautiful, extraordinary service. Only thing that bothered us was the fact that other peope were being rude, by using their phones on speaker, listening to youtube videos... that is probably the reason they lost their michelin rating.

Upscale restaurant with prix fixe menu. Service was very good but I expected better for the price. Sat outside with a view of the fountain, since it was relatively cool out, and there were people (not restaurant patrons) coming through the dining area to take photos of the fountain, which was annoying.
