Update: In a surprise announcement, Olives was closed on Jan 14, 2018. It will be replaced by Wolfgang Puck’s Spago with a full renovation, opening in the Summer of 2018.
Olives in Las Vegas is a Mediterranean feast for the senses with world-class food, award-winning drinks, and exceptional service, overlooking Lake Bellagio and the fountains.
The atmosphere at Olives has an old world flair with dimmed lights, perfect for a romantic evening. While you can see the Bellagio fountains from several tables in the restaurant, if you manage to score a table outside on the balcony, the views are breathtaking!
While the Olives terrace, or balcony, is available only on a first come basis, my husband was able to arrange my birthday dinner out on the terrace on the balcony edge, for the best photo opportunities in Vegas!
In fact, during the water show, they took our photo in front of the fountains. It was truly a memorable occasion!
Olives menu has a nice selection of Mediterranean options without feeling pretentious and stuffy. It’s fresh food, simply prepared.
For our last trip in September, 2016, we noticed the menu no longer had the zucchini fries we love so much. We asked out waiter about it, and he asked the chef to prepare it for us specially! Great service, and the zucchini fries were delish!
You can read the drink menu at Olives on an iPad, which is nice to actually see the drink in full color next to its name and description. They have a selection of martinis and mixed drinks along with a selection of the best California wines, and the finest Mediterranean wine from the South of France, Spain and Italy.
Our favorites are the Pear martini and Espresso martini (shown below). In fact, Olives won the best pear martini in Las Vegas!
Olives is the 2015 winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence and Best of Award of Excellence in 2016, and their sommeliers will help you find the perfect paired wine.
The Olives dress code in Las Vegas is casual for lunch with men wearing polo or golf shirts and women in tasteful casual clothes. For dinner, the dress code changes to Business casual with men wearing button down shirts, women in blouses and slacks or skirts. I certainly wouldn’t wear a t-shirt in Olives at the Bellagio, but I don’t think you’d be asked to leave 🙂
