It was my first time dining and I must say this place is amazing. My friend and I chose to dine on the patio. We were right in view of the water show! The weather was nice and the food was absolutely amazing. If you love sushi and sushami this is a great spot to go !

Besides being lucky to be seated on the terrace overlooking the spectacular fountain- the food was truly wonderful. The variety, flavors and presentation were first rate.
Great food, great view, okay service
I've eaten here before so I knew that I couldn't have the business meeting inside because it is too loud. I got a table on the patio, which is better anyway because the view over the fountain and the strip is amazing. The food was all very good but the service was exceptionally slow and I know that our waiter forgot about us a few times. At the end, we actually had to go and track him down to get our check. We were enjoying our conversation but after 15 minutes of waiting for the check we knew he wasn't coming back. It was the same way throughout dinner. We really enjoyed the food but the service could be improved.
mediocre at best
We eat a lot of sushi. Good quality sushi. This restaurant was just ok. One order of yellowtail literally had 3 very small and wafer thin slices of fish...in a very lovely glowing bowl of ice. but really? 3 slices?? For the price? Crazy. The sushi pizza, for almost $30.00? Crazy. The value is simply NOT THERE. Try Sugar Fish! It's triple the food for less price! Better quality as well.

It was our anniversary and they give us one of the best tables, the service and the food were excellent . Thank you for everything!!!! If you go to Vegas this is the place to eat
Outstanding meal; go elsewhere to avoid parking $$
Everything about the restaurant (meal, service and ambiance) experience at Yellowtail was outstanding. We had an outside table overlooking the lake and spent over $300 on a great meal. But, given how much I paid for my stay at the Bellagio, why did management decide they needed to "soak" me for another $15 dollars for valet parking. Given the abundance of fabulous restaurants on and off the Strip that don't charge for parking, it is difficult to recommend a "parking-plus" establishment unless it is a one-of-a-kind location. Yellowtail-Bellagio is good -- but but not that good.

If you sit on the patio right next to the fountain be ready to get wet! Other than that... What an awesome view!

Not being a sushi enthusiast, dining at Yellowtail was a treat for my wife. She had a bunch of sushi and she loved it. I had the braised short ribs, and they were amazing. The main dining area has nice views of the Bellagio fountain, and even a balcony to get a direct view. It was a little loud, but pleasantly so as everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Huge selection of wines, and enough options for Scotch to keep me happy (went great with the short ribs)
Too little, too expensive
This is a place you send friends to when they need a place to burn money

Our Bellagio Experience
The food was excellent but at these prices which are pretty substantial, if you put on your menu that the steak sits over mashed potatoes....said mashed potatoes should be more than a thimble's worth. While I get the whole "make a picture, starve a customer" credo, surely another tsp of said mashed potatoes would still give you 150% profit margin.
Wanted a special location for a birthday ...
Wanted a special location for a birthday dinner and Yellowtail did not disappoint. If you can get an outside table as the sun sets over Vegas, a better dinner experience you will not find. The entire experience was simply magical.
I go to Vegas every year for a trade show, and YellowTail is a must at least one night. It never disappoints. Highly recommend to anyone who love sushi! Not to mention the view of the Bellagio fountains is fabulous!

We had the best 2 seats in the restaurant. Front and center on the patio with an amazing view of the Bellagio fountain show. It took an hour for our food to arrive, but we had drinks and the view so we were good.

With as much as this meal cost, it's terrible to be nickel and dimed over one extra wonton. We left insulted after the appetizers. I will not go back despite how delicious the food was.

Truly exceptional meal and service. The menu is very unique and they deliver on it! Our waiter was one of the best we ever had. You do pay for it, but you certainly get what you pay for in this case!

Pop rocks in sushi - yes! The short rib sushi was a surprise but totally delicious. The yellowtail/jalapeño starter melted in your mouth. Amazing meal!

Food was good, but overpriced. I think for the value there are better places in the area.
I enjoyed it overall
My only complaint is that the portion sizes were a bit small. When you pay 120 dollars for two people (on just food) you shouldn't leave hungry. Otherwise, I liked it.

Great view of Bellagio fountains and wait staff is outstanding
Love Japanese food? Then you will love Yellowtail. The food is amazing. We had a party of 6 and received excellent service from Guy (our server). He was extremely knowledgable of the food and made excellent selections. Just our out window was a view of the Bellagio Fountains. A great experience.

Be sure to request patio table looking out over Bellagio fountains. Don't miss big eye tuna pizza, spicy crab tempura & Pop rocks roll. Our favorite Vegas restaurant.

I'd have given this place higher marks if, 1) the first of our 2 waiters had been patient and interested in guiding us through our experience (we never saw him again after the first 20 mins so I'm guessing his shift was over), and 2) we hadn't just dined at Nobu the night before, which stole the show in all categories: food quality, service, pacing of the experience. That being said, this place SHOULD BE CALLED "short rib heaven!" Go there, order those and expect the best short ribs you've ever had, hands down!!!

Amazing....The serving team was amazing...And Bijan was absolutely the best....We will be back many times in the future...
Average food, awesome location, expected better
I understand what Yellowtail restaurant is trying to execute but they are just average results. Consider their pricing, I was expecting much better presentation and taste. They just don't deliver. The waitstaff was attentive, know their menu and recommended their best dishes. Not at a level I've eaten in other top Japanese or Sushi restaurants. Yellowtail's location was great and attracted a beautiful crowd.
Very Good, bigger portion pleas
The service was EXCELLENT. The waiter, Seth I think, coached us on the best things to try, I was educated in my delicious saki flight. We ordered bluefin sashimi and mackeral. Delictable, but for the price, the portions could have been slightly bigger, and we are not pigs :)
The sushi was excellent
If they seat you outside on the patio, the view of the founatins are stunning
There's Better Sushi Elsewhere
The sushi here has small portions and a small selection. There are much better places elsewhere on the strip.
Amazing! Such great food, service and ambiance.
I will return next time I am at Vegas! Thanks for a great meal.

The service was outstanding. Our waters were never empty, plates were always pre bussed immediately and the table was always clean. Seriously some of the best sushi I have ever had! The protein roll is out of this world. Must try!
