Picasso - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews

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.

great food - loved the lobster salad, which had really tender lobster meat
waiter was a bit chatty for a formerly Michelin-starred restaurant, but rest of staff, including sommelier, had perfect level of service and engagement

We came in to enjoy a palate fit to justify your five star rating. But i am sorry to say that your service and food were far below standards. The Som was rushing as if he had othere pressing things to do. The server was rude and when we asked him if the chef could do something else as one of our dish was very was not enjoyable- the chinese eegplant dish being saturated in oils told us sorry but thats all we have for vegetarians. At best he said we could do a green salad with cherry tomatoes . I dont think i paid for basic food to be put out for us.
You certainly are no 11 Madison even though you might want to be them. We are absolutely never coming back and never suggesting anyone to go there to have their evening ruined.

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.

Disappointed that such an expensive restaurant had only a choice of 2 fixed menus and had similar food on both. Also a up charge of $150 for a fillet on a $130 menu is plain crazy. Really would say buyer beware.

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.
