Picasso - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews
Great food for foodies. Very accommodating- were able to modify and simplify pre- fixed menu for kids. We came at 9:15 ( reservation was for 9) and were a little rushed to order since we were told the kitchen will close.
We did primeum wine pairing - expected more from both - wine selection and amount.
Overall great experience though
This was an experience, an elegant dining experience. If you're looking for a large menu to choose between meats, veggies and starches...not the restaurant for you. This is a pre fix menu that leaves your taste buds full of life! The staff was elite quality, very professional! If you have the opportunity to sit outside, TAKE IT! Stunning views of the dancing waters and most of the strip. Carve out at least a couple hours for this experience and soak up all your surroundings.
Picassos is a special French restaurant but pricey. You have two options-both are prix fixe. They have expensive and reasonably priced wines. If the weather allows, it can be special to sit out side and enjoy the bellagio water show close up. Be sure it's not too hot nor too cool.
Great food, nice wine pairings. The wine steward (Robert Smith has left the restaurant) was in a rush at every pairing. Not what we are used to at this restaurant. The wait staff was courteous, although a bit chatty amongst themselves to the point of leaving us wondering if our waiter was paying attention at times.
The parting gift has moved from palmiers to mini muffins. Not a great move in my opinion.
Overall, we love this restaurant, hopefully the service will improve.
The food was really good and the service was exceptional. It is not particularly cheap, but worth it. The ambiance is good, except I wish they would enforce a stricter dress code for a fine dining restaurant, but they don't, so if you area baseball cap, sweat pants wearing type of person who likes to frequent fine dining restaurants, apparently you are still welcome at Picasso. But, seriously, if you want to go to a restaurant like this, take off your damn hat and put on a jacket. Otherwise, there are fast food restaurants on every corner in Vegas.
Was hoping for a better experience. The amount of time that it took to be served dinner was disappointing. I understand that it's a 4 course dining experience but 2 hours in we still hadn't been served the main course. Sad as we had hoped for a better experience based on past reviews.
Dinner was great, I'd say it was on par with other high end tasting menus like Navio at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay. We added the wine pairings, husband paid extra for lobster so the price tag was rather hefty. In the end, my less expensive main entree of deer was better than his lobster! Service was fantastic, I wish the Picasso paintings were a bit more accessible and while the fountains were neat, unless you had a window seat, I'd say the "view" was a bit meh.
We've eaten at Navio many times and two other restaurants in California that offer amazing tasting menus. I wouldn't say Picasso was better. It was great, but one of the best on the world (per the Forbes plaque hung on the wall)? Not so sure.
I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday, as we both love food but the Michelin guide doesn't even come to our state. We were very nervous that we'd stick out like sore thumbs, and that was not the case at all! If you've never had a prior fine dining experience, the staff at Picasso will take care of you and make you feel incredibly comfortable. Of course the food is amazing, but the wine pairings were extraordinary. Blake made us feel like we were at home, and settled our nerves about making any mistakes. He was such a bright personality, we practically wanted him to join the table.
I highly recommend the pigeon, and my boyfriend loved the salmon.
Let me start by saying we really wanted to like this restaurant. My wife and I chose to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary here. We were seated at a wonderful table overlooking the fountains. That is where the good things ended. Even though you can see the fountains you cannot hear the wonderful music that accompanies the show. Instead the noise level inside the restaurant is ridiculously loud. It is almost as if you are dining in a cafeteria. There is zero ambiance. Now let me begin with the meal. The food is good not great. The wines are outrageously overpriced. We chose the sommelier selection to accompany our dinner. I checked the price of each glass as it was served. They all fell between 12-15 dollars per bottle retail. Are you kidding me? You are charging me $63 for four small tastings of below average wines. A bottle of Veuve Cliquot yellow label champagne which retails for $49.99 is a whopping $199. Now I don't mind a 2.5 or 3 times markup, but 4 times retail. Come on. Now let me get to the service. The best word I can use to describe it is uneven. We ordered the five course tasting menu. The time between courses varied from five to thirty-five minutes. Really??? Also at the table next to us a diner was presented with the wrong dinner. The server started to place it in front of her when another server rushed over and said "no, that is for table 37." This is absolutely inexcusable in a restaurant of this supposed quality. Finally when our desserts came they mixed them up. Again not acceptable in a restaurant of this caliber. In summary $578 for an unevenly paced 2.5 hour dinner with zero ambiance is ludicrous. There are far too many better restaurants in Las Vegas.
One of the best meals I have ever had, comes with the option for the sommelier to match wines with the course being served. Outstanding service and attention to detail. A view of the famous Bellagio fountains perform outside the window while you dine. But it is VERY expensive.
This was my birthday meal while in Las Vegas. I have tried lots of fine dining and celebrity chef restaurants around the world and this was on par with the best of them. Everything was like clockwork, the food was well prepared and tasted great. Service was a bit entertaining (because they were out of sync since they added a table that night) but pleasant, no complaints on the quality of the service.
Outstanding restaurant! I was very impressed by the food, level of service and knowledge of the waitstaff. This is not a place for a quick meal or cheap eats, but rather a more relaxed, elegant dining experience, enhanced by the abundant original Picasso paintings hanging about the restaurant.
Overall, a very good experience. The food was extremely good and I really enjoyed the ability to only order three items. My only suggestion was that the food came out a little too quickly for my liking between courses. We weren't done with our wine pairing before the next course came out. It's a little thing, but something you would expect from a 2 star Michelin restaurant.
