Picasso - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews

The menu is a fixed price choice of 4 or 5 courses. The price was reasonable ($120 to $130) without the wine paring (which added another $75 to $125). The food was excellent. The ambience is quite pleasant and you can easily see the Bellagio water show from most tables. It was not a rushed experience; expect to spend 2 to 2 1/2 hours for dinner. The wine menu was also excellent with many very reasonably priced choices (under $150). With many overpriced and disappointing restaurants in Las Vegas, this is an excellent choice.

Very elegant restaurant. 2 fixed menus with options. Service very professional and attentive. Great restaurant for special occasions. Quiet, almost a formal atmosphere but not stuffy at all. Our waiter enquired to see if we had a time constraint due to a show, which we did. He said he would shorten the time between courses - which he did perfectly. Wish we could have had more time just to enjoy the fantastic food in such a wonderful setting.

One of the top two dining experiences of my life. First, the restaurant is beautiful. If it's good weather, you can sit outside and watch the Bellagio fountain show. We were inside, but could still see the show. Second, there are a few menus to choose from and they all sounded fabulous. We went with the truffle menu which did not disappoint. Each course was just perfect: right amount of seasoning, creative elements, cooked exactly the way it should be done. It's hard to select a favorite course, so it's a tie between the risotto and filet mignon. The risotto was wonderfully creamy and neither over nor under cooked. The filet was so tender and served with tasty vegetables and mashed potatoes. Who doesn't love a mashed potato?! Definitely go with the paired wines because they complement the dishes way better than I could have selected. I highly recommend Picasso.

Wonderful dinner experience at Picasso...Both my husband and I enjoyed 4-course prix menu and wine from the Loire Valley. The soup, warm squab salad, duck, and veal were all excellent. We look forward to dine here again the next time we are in Las Vegas.

Picasso is by far the finest restaurant in Las Vegas (and many other places). Ambiance, food and service were impeccable. All eight of us were supremely happy and satisfied. The wine list is full of excellent vintages of Burgundy and the Champagne covered every style with the best quality.

How often can one dine on wonderful food, in an oasis of calm, with discreet and obliging service, overlooking one of the best spectacles in Las Vegas, surrounded by priceless art? The Picasso is a jewel in the Bellagio's crown and was a welcome break from the madness of Las Vegas. Well worth the expense.

We had to push our reservation back using the app and experienced no trouble. Every single member of the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable, and sitting out on the patio and watching the fountains with dinner was amazing. Excellent experience!

The restaurant and windows overlooking the fountain show made for a great atmosphere. The food was great but the entree lacked a little flare as well as the dessert. Everything up to that point was exceptional but a nice dinner like that should finish strong. Also, desserts seemed a little lacking for creativity in that 3 out of 5 options were chocolate based. It's not great when one person in the couple isn't a fan of chocolate.

The 5 course menu was awesome. They offer a 4 course ($118) or 5 course ($128) menu, exclusive of tax and tip or wine. I was able to switch out an item on the 4 course to the 5 course. Service was fabulous. Food was inventive, delicious, presentation was amazing. It exceeded my expectations and we have eaten at many 5 star places. I am still enjoying the memory of the flavors.

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.
