Olives at the Bellagio

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Ishtar on July 20, 2001

We were there for lunch rather than dinner. We had gone with another couple to look at the opulent gardens, and decided to try this place because the decor was so upbeat and unusual.

Olives in Las Vegas is modeled after the original Olives of Boston. The cuisine is definitely mediterranean, and my salad was exquisite. The dessert menu is nothing short of decadent, and both Chuck and I skipped, but our friends did not. You'll see what I mean.

We were seated very promptly; there was also outdoor seating, but considering how hot it was, we opted to stay inside. Our table was facing the "street" so to speak, so one could also do some people watching. We did wait quite a long time to be served although it was not particularly crowded at the time. Lunch for 4 was about $150. Now I know how they can afford that million dollar lighting extravangaza at the entrance!

Lunch was enhanced by a visit to the gardens, but there wasn't sufficient time to see the art gallery. We also missed the water show which can be viewed during the day as well as night; we did catch a glimpse of it as we were walking on the strip one evening. It's a symphony of water jets rendered even more beautiful by lights at nighttime.

One needs to see this place one more time to be able to "take it all in". It takes its name from a small Italian village.
