Picasso - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews

Absolutely outstanding! Everything was perfect: the service (our waiter was Blake), the view of the bellagio fountains, the food, and the wine pairings. My girlfriend and I wanted to have a romantic dinner to cap off her first Vegas trip. So glad I chose this place. We picked the degustation menu with the wine parings. I've never had wines complement a meal so perfectly. I would highly recommend doing this. Can't wait to come back

Wonderful oasis of civility amid the "bustle" of Vegas. By far the best dining room staff in the city. They make it a five star experience. The food, while very good, falls short of being top tier. It is almost as if the cooks are too timid. This shows up throughout the meal. For example, the foie gras, while delicious, lacks an edge. It is cooked over far too low a flame and has none of the glaze that would give give justice to such a wonderful ingredient. The poached pear dessert was wonderful. While eating it I wished it had been served with the foie gras. That combination would have been perfect. My biggest gripe is the wine list. It is a great list priced to ruin the evening. Don't take my comments as anything other than suggestions on ways to improve a very good restaurant. In Vegas, you can't do better.

Picasso was a very elegant dining experience. The wine list was outstanding. The wait staff was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The dinner was a tad pricey, but was made up for by the fantastic experience and being able to see the Bellagio fountain show.

I took my wife here for a romantic birthday dinner. The staff as great and the food was wonderful as well... The only downfall was that the A/C WAS NOT WORKING! My wife and I were not able to finish our food because it just became very uncomfortable. That was a real bummer. On the upside our server as able to reduce our bill since we were unable to finish our 5 course meal.

Picasso is outstanding! We have been to many fine dining restaurants in Vegas and this is our favorite. The service is wonderful. The food is incredible. And the cocktails are great. There are amazing views no matter if you sit inside or outside as we have done both. Every trip to Vegas for us will include a visit to Picasso.

Picasso is exquisite. Might have the best wine list and most helpful sommelier in Las Vegas. The food is incredible and quite creative. The view of the fountains is terrific. We have been 4 times now and will look forward to our next visit. The décor is beautiful with amazing original artwork on display.

Incredible! Few places live up to expectations but Picasso definitely did. Amazing wine list, exceptional food and amazing service. I only wish they would enforce a stronger dress code to further enhance the dining experience.

One of the best restaurant experiences I've had in years. We have gone to a lot of top rated restaurants in the past year but this is by far the best at everything, food, wine, service. The short ribs were divine, the foie gras was so creamy and smooth it melted in my mouth. The wine pairing is usually something I shy away after years of disappointing pairing but this wine pairing was perfect, he hit every note, I am a convert again.

Picasso the was a complex artist with many layers and styles. The same is true for Las Vegas' eponymous restaurant. The service and attention to detail is excellent, wine selection and pairings are one of the best we've seen and the wonderfully prepared food tops off a perfect dining experience.

Great restaurant. Easily one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in terms of service. The restaurant has a balcony located by the Bellagio Fountains which adds to the amazing atmosphere. Inside, as the name indicates, has Picasso paintings on the walls.
Although dinning inside was a great experience, I would highly recommend requesting a table on the balcony whenever making a reservation here.
My husband treated me to dinner here on our one year anniversary. It is definitely overpriced, pretty, cutesy food, but that's to be expected. We had an outdoor front row seat to the lake at Bellagio, and we enjoyed the fountains numerous times throughout the evening. That alone was priceless, as the Bellagio has always been my favorite hotel. The food was delicious. Although they did not give us a ton of food for each course, we actually left feeling very full. The staff was pleasant and tended to our needs. My water glass was never empty. It was an extremely expensive dinner, but for a special occasion, it was worth it.
Simply put, the single best dining experience ever
The food, the service, the ambiance, the scenery...unsurpassed. It went beyond a great meal to a great experience. It's the single best dining out experience my wife and I have ever had. And that's saying a lot.

We chose Picasso to celebrate my fiancé’s 30th birthday and our wedding as we were getting married the next day in Vegas. I am a foodie and researched Picasso and other restaurants for months. I ended up choosing Picasso and sorely regretting my decision. When we arrived at 7:40 p.m. we received waters. However, it then took our server 20-25 mins to take drink orders and 30 mins to deliver the drinks, which were delivered with an amuse-bouche. The wine was delicious as was the amuse-bouche. But we then waited another 30 mins or so to have our orders taken. After ordering, my wine went empty and we waited and waited for our server to come back around. The server came back approximately 1.5 hours into our dining experience with my first wine pairing and our first course—the lobster salad. The lobster salad was wonderful, but with how hungry we were by that time we were longing for much more. My fiancé began to complain to me and I kept telling him to give it a chance because I had been so excited to try Picasso’s food. I hoped that things would get better, but they did not. We continued to wait. The server came back around about 2.5 hours into our dining experience and I finally expressed our concerns re: the fact that we literally had two bites to eat in 2.5 hrs. We ordered the five course tasting menu and seriously wondered how long we would be there and we had 6 other guests in town who we planned to meet after dinner. After I expressed concerns re: the painfully slow service, the server came out with our second course…a scallop, but by this time, my fiancé was too frustrated to eat. He did not want me to spend the amount of money this place charges for this type of service. The server brought over a manager who was not accommodating at all, did not try to persuade us to stay and instead just charged us for our drinks and let us walk away. We left the restaurant hungry and frustrated around 10:20pm and ended up eating fast food. :( What a disappointing evening!
Outstanding but with two caveats
This is likely my 8th time dining here over the years, and although overall outstanding, there were for the first time two concerns. 1) I called a week in advance and informed the restaurant reservations manager (who answered the restaurant's phone) that it was a special occasion dinner for my gf and if they could just write happy birthday (her name) on the desert plate or do something else for her it would be appreciated. She said they don't do that! I have dined all over the world at the top places and this is the first time I encountered this type of response, especially from a top place. I also informed her that on Trip Advisor there was a photo of a small desert with a happy birthday and a candle and she said that she will talk to the restaurant. Well, long story short, we did not get anything and even after spending over $600 with tip for two for dinner, this is the one thing that left the greatest impression on my gf and what my gf keeps reminding me of-- how the restaurant did not write happy birthday on her desert plate. 2) The lamb loin was ordered medium rare, and came medium at best. The waiter offered to replace it, but I said, you know what, I can eat it. It was not as tender as it should have been. This is a great restaurant and it should remember the details make the difference.
A masterpiece of a meal
From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left, we felt that we were treated as honored guests. Every bite of food was a flavorful experience, and the wine pairings were perfect. Nothing other than Picasso originals could hold their own with the chef and the staff!

I dined myself at Picasso on May. My server was very friendly and nice but every staff was also attentative and kindly treated me. Food was great as well. I had quail, foie gras, veal chop, and chocolate dessert. Especially, I love foie gras here. It was beautifully presented and so delicious. Also, for dessert, I highly recommend chocolate dessert. If you visit Las Vegas, you should visit here. I could say it was the best of day in my life although I visited here alone.

Our seating was very close to another couple, so it made it difficult to not be a part of their conversation-and I would rather have not been. Service was okay-a bit plastic and forced. Food was good, but was somewhat disappointed given the hype. Wine pairings were nice. Likely would not go back.

This of course is one my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas. This is chef Julian Serrano's fine dining restaurant in LV. This may be the best deal in town when it comes to upscale dining. Both pre-fixed meals are very reasonable. As are the wine pairings. One of the most extensive wine lists in the city, if you truly want to upgrade your wine. For out of town quests this is one of my go to spots.
Exceptional ambiance and service
Stunning ambiance, exceptional service, very good food. The wine pairing alongside the Degustation menu was superb, with thoughtful and informative explanations by our Sommelier.
Although the first 3 courses of the Degustation menu were superb, the main course and dessert were slightly underwhelming. Still very good, but I expected a little bit more finesse.
Overall still highly recommended.
