I dined at Picasso for the first time in Vegas and it was the worst experience ever. A total downer for a 4.5 star yelp rated restaurant, that is located at one of the best hotels in Vegas.

I am vegetarian so I ordered the five course

I had such a wonderful experience here for my anniversary....or i would have if I hadn't brought my husband lol. He was sooo disappointed by the tiny food portions that he complained the entire time haha. So make sure you bring someone that can appreciate fine dining and doesnt have a huge appetite!

Pros: great food, amazing environment, fantastic service

Cons: ....choose your company wisely!

When I read the negative reviews, I found pretty amazing that anyone can complain about Picasso. From the minute we entered and were greeted to the minute we left with our pretty picasso box, everything went perfect. I have been in many restaurants in Las Vegas, and nothing beats Picasso for the money. Food great, service professional and not pretentious, atmosphere unbeatable, for less money than a Steakhouse! When I read the 2 stars Michelins have the same price in France, it makes me laugh. Just go there and compare, or get more info! The lighting of the restaurant was great, whoever went there and couldn't see should go see an eye doctor. It is THE restaurant in Las Vegas, for those who are looking for an incredible experience. Went there 3 times in the past 2 years, will be back there shortly.

To pay $ 330.00 for a 3 -course prix fixe menu is much to high.
A nearly empty glass of Dutgold Chard wine for a price of $ 16.00 is overpriced.
We think you pay for the Picasso's and the view over the waterfountain.
In Europe You don't pay such a price in a 2** Michelin restaurant.
The first and the last time to dinner in the Picasso.

The hype which preceeded our meal probably did not help. 2 Michelin star restaurant - ala Mr Ramsey et al...BLAH BLAH BLAH

In reality it all went wrong from the moment we passed through the doors of the Bellagio.

the whole place had a dire look of confusion - the walkways were primed with touches of asia and the decor was a poor mans attempt to recreate an italian theme. This is surely nothing like the scenes depicted in Oceans 11. The glizty horse in the foyer area was reminescent of a large disco ball seen in an old bollywood film.

As we made our way to the restaurant through the very average casino -BTW- the Pallazzo was miles ahead in this regard, we saw red laterns above and very odd decor with marble background. Nevertheless i remained positively upbeat.

HOW WRONG I WAS... we entered the Picasso via steps leading down to what one woudl be mistaken to interpret as a wine cellar. We were pleasantly seated by the bar in old sofas which allow you to sink in once seated - a great way to keep you somewhere you may not wanted to be !

The first thing that struck me was the lighting - or lack thereof - I did have to ask my dining friends - Nick and Zala whether we were in Draculas den ? The table was not ready on arrival - but when we were being excorted to our seats, we were lucky to get there without fallin over in the dark!

Never mind - i thought - we are hear for the food - so what if we eat in the dark - as long as the food is good right ? - WRONG -

I was surpised to find Marshmellows (yes, I am not making this up) in our sweet pumpkin soup, the smallest served portion of venision ever - finished off with green apples !?!?! and I think the shock of the food taste has affected my senses as i actually paid for the meal. Weird textures and combinations - poor intellectual creativity with the food - and it was a mediocre experience at best.

PROS: - great venue if your date is ugly
CONS:- the food does not come free

Avoid Picasso restaurant. Their service is abysmal. They overbook their tables and then shove you to any available table . We reserved through Bellagio concierge service and requested window seat. When we arrived we were seated at the table furthest from the window and when we inquired about their promise of a window table they replied with: Well you can see fountains from this table, cannot you?". Despite numerous tables available (it was the last reservation of the day (9:30)) they refused to make any other tables available to us and those tables remained empty for the rest of the evening. Promised conversation with a manger never happened and he never materialized or apologized for them lying to us. As far as food is concerned; it is simply unremarkable. Having 600000 bottles of wine in a cellar does not make a good restaurant nor having a 12 years old sommelier who pours Cabernet right out of the bottle into your glass and immediately asks your opinion of it. Have they ever heard of decanting red wine? All in all mass-exclusivity with very little idea about food or service. Pack-em-in charge em-up go home type of operation. Can you blame them ? They are not in repeat-customer business there at Picasso.
P.S. Try to look at review by houstongirl73, posted as far back as 08/30/2004. We received the same bunch of baloney from their staff, word to word ,including laughable "3-months in advance reservation" quote.
If they ever close down Picasso they should look into opening a car dealership next.

Pros: Nice decorum.

Cons: Lying Metr D, Attitude of an overnight operation. Unremarkable food.

This was fantastic! Great amount of amazing food for a great price. The service was only second to one other restaurant that I love in Boston, very professional, but not stuffy. The tasting menu was phenominal, and my boyfriend did the four-course and it was amazing, too. I know because I had at least a bite of everything. It's been two months, and I can still tell you EVERYTHING, including reductions, etc. that we had. If only I knew as much about wine, but he could tell you everything about the wine, I'm sure. By the way, whatever it was that was paired with the foie gras, was the best pairing I think I've ever had. Talk about an amazing taste bud experience. The water show outside the window was a perfect. I'm still dreaming of the lobster salad and the caulliflower moussaline and the black sea bass.... Oh, I could go on forever. Everyone I've told about my first trip to Vegas finds it hilarious that this is what I talk about first and spend 99% of the time discussing.

I have to admit I was a little daunted at the thought of Picasso. All of my doubts and cares dissapeared the minute I walked into the place. The interior at Picasso is absolutely breathtaking! The artwork is incredible and my eyes did not know where to look first. The abundance of fresh flowers was incredible..truly stunning. We were a little early for our booking (on purpose hoping to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the fountains for a while). The staff was very accomodating and friendly, I experienced no pretense or "snobbishness" like others have complained about here. The bartender was extremely helpful and nice, even turning on the outisde heat lamps for us. When our table was ready, we were escorted inside and presented with menus, which the waiter explained with care and detail. I ordered the four-course prix fixe menu with wine pairing. From the amuse bouche to the petit fours and coffee, the meal was perfection! Easily the best meal and service I have ever experienced. The wine pairings were innovative and unexpected, yet obviously selected with care and skill. The food was rich and grand and beautifully presented in perfect harmony with the incredible surroundings. I wanted to stay forever. Luckily, the rest of our five-person party felt the same. We asked if we linger out on the patio with a bottle of wine for a while. Once again the staff was amazingly friendly and accomodating. I can not wait to go back to Picasso. I've been planning our next visit since the moment we left.

Cons: Now nothing else compares.

I live in L.A.
I eat out all the time at the newest and the with most fabulous.
But, come on people.
Stuffy?!?!
You people need to get out more often.
Tell me how many of your friends ate in front of Picasso art work?
The food is the most elegant and flavorful.
Wait staff is the best of the best.
Attention to detail and let me tell you they don't even frown on the question "what's that?"
Julian Serano or however you spell it is a true master. A very friendly chef as well ( well at least to me he was).
I also highly recommend walking out on to the patio and watch the fountain show.
The water explodes in front of your face.
Go to Picasso!!!!!

I also cannot relate to the negative reviews of Picasso. I dined here recently with a friend while on business in town. The whole experience was nothing less than perfect leaving my wife very jealous indeed. We opted for different selections from the the four course tasting menu with wine pairing. What impressed me about Picasso (in addition to the food) was how the kitchen and floor staff co-ordinated the whole meal meticulously. Not only did me and my friend order different selections, but they both arrived together AND warm. No mean feat to achieve given my experiences elsewhere. Each course came with suitably precise descriptions by the waiter. All the time not feeling forced or pretentious. Again as we had opted for different items our wine pairing invariably differed. This was also handled remarkably well. We did not share one sommelier in turn, but had two sommeliers expertly describe the wine flavours and complexity to us individually. The meal was several hours of dining pleasure and fun! Yes fun! With each course came a new chance to try something different and unique. Quail, black bass, saffron, venison, foie gras, truffle, the list of decadence went on and on. There was much envious glances at each others plate as each course arrived quickly followed by the smug look on arrival of your own plate. At the end of the meal we had dessert and discovered that although the courses individually are quite small, as a whole they comprise a very satisfying meal. Be warned that you do need to book in advance. We ourselves booked around 5 weeks in advance for a 6PM Thursday sitting. It quickly became obvious we should have requested seating closer to the windows to better watch the Bellagio fouuntains that rage otside the window while you dine. I would certainly recommend booking well in advance for a decent seating at Picasso. All in all a quite enjoyable evening, one which I cannot wait to try again!

I've been there twice and sat outside both times. the inside seemed a little stuffy but a good place to spot celebraties, but sit outside! the veiw of the fountains and a front row seat for the show is well worth it . there arent that many tables outside so it is quite intimate too.

Pros: water show, intimate outdoor dining, food

My wife and I are self proclaimed foodies. I have been in the restaurant industry in New York for seven years and we have eaten in just about every fine dining establishment in New York. Sorry to say New York but my favorite restaurant is now 2500 miles away. We ate in Picasso during our honeymoon in Vegas and every single expectation we had we're far exceeded.

The Service: FLAWLESS, For the first time ever a restaurant went out of there way to make sure my wife who is allergic to shellfish could order the tasting menu. Basically the Waiter said.. Choose whatever you want to be fed and you shall have it. We had two personalized 6 course tasting menus. No restaurant in New York ever would do this for us. The whole crew was on the ball from start to finish.

The Food: AMAZING. Yes some of the portions are small but others we're more than average. We did the tasting nenu and by dessert we could barely take one more taste but off course we finsihed every last drop because it was so decadent. The venison was cooked to perfection. The seared fois gras addictive. Each dish somehow outdid the previous one. Presentation was perfect and the timing between courses was right on the money. By the ned of the meal we were asking if we could personally thank the chef.

The Ambiance: Fountains, Picasso Originals, and Romance. What more could you ask for?

I really don't understand where the gripes about this restaurant are coming from. Yes $500 is a lot to spend on a meal for 2 but to celebrate a special occasion there is no place I would rather spend 3 hours.

I can't relate to the negative reviews. This was a great experience. We got to sit by the window and enjoyed an unobstructed view of over ten fountain shows.

We dined 2 weeks ago for my wifes 30th birthday with a party of 12. I was a little concerned with a prior post from a party of 10. We had high expectations and they exceeded our expectations. From the moment we were greeted until we left the service was top notch. We did the Chef's 5-course tasting with wine pairing. The food was wonderful and pairings spot on. We brought in a '76 Lafite & '76 d'Yquem that they corked for us. Master Sommelier Robert Smith and Assistant Sommelier Desi Echavarrie handled the wine service beautifully. It is not cheap but worth every penny for what you get. We dined at many fine restaurants during our 8 day stay & Picasso was our favorite.

Just ate there with a party of 10 and to the person we were underwhelmed. The portions miniscule, the service snobby and overbearing, and we were all hungry when we left. I think this is the most overated restaurant in Las Vegas bar none.

Pros: Picasso Paintings, Nice view

I have to say that I heartily agree with many of the negative comments here. Our experience, to put it bluntly, was a mess. Substandard food (and I really mean that) combined with inattentive service with an attitude. Atmosphere is nice but that certainly doesn't mean much in the midst of anything else. I heartily recommend that you go elsewhere.

I agree with the others here who described this restaurant as a major disappointment. Small portions, totally uninspired (OK, boring) food. Like another reviewer, I had a filet mignon that was quite poor (my local steakhouse could have done better). And, yes, the portions were miniscule (this is a $100-per-person fixed price menu). The wait staff were self-absorbed and relatively inattentive (and amazingly unresonsive to my party's concerns about our food). The setting is beautiful, but that didn't come close to making up for the food and (lack of) service. There are so many great restaurants now in Las Vegas; you can do much, much better than this.

My husband and I were staying at the Bellagio, and made reservations in the morning for a 9pm table with relative ease. From the moment we arrived, however, the hostess was extremely rude and arrogant, reminding us that we had only made reservations that day while many people have to wait 3 months. There were at least half a dozen empty tables at 9pm, and when we asked to be re-seated closer to the window, the hostess rudely answered that it was not possible. (No one ever filled most of those tables) Turned off by her attitude, we were unable to enjoy most of the delicious meal (except for the over-salted potatoes). Bottom line is that if you are going to shell out the $250 for a meal, you would hope to be treated nicely, whether you made the reservation 3 months or 3 hours before.

Zagat's was right...if you could only have one more meal..this is where you would want to be. Whether you choose the Prix Fixe or Degustation menu..make certain that you add the wine pairing to your dinner...then sit back, relax, and enjoy the "show." I cannot visually describe the presentation of each course adequately...the poached oysters in vermouth sauce topped with a dollop of ossetra caviar nestled in their shells and sitting in tiny napkins that, themselves, were artwork started the meal. My wife had green pea soup..YES..GREEN PEA SOUP..she wanted 3 more servings...amazing!! And it kept getting better...building to a wonderful finish...if you want to feel like a "high roller" in Vegas...eat nowhere else...this is truly the best.

Pros: Food, Service, Quality

Absolutely the best. Granted I have only eaten there 1 time but that 1 time was the finest, most enjoyable meal I have ever eaten in my life. Being from NY I have dined at many a fine restaurant but nothing compared. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous with all of the fresh flowers and of course, the artwork. But the meal itself was art, both in taste and preparation. The service was perfect and we had a window seat facing the fountain show. It was the most perfect meal imaginable. The wine was perfectly chosen and every morsel of food was to die for. There is no better restaurant in all of Las Vegas, hence the hard to come by reservations. If you are looking for a meal that will leave your stomach stuffed and your wallet full, try the Stardust buffet................

Being from NY I have dined at many a fine restaurant but nothing compared. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous with all of the fresh flowers and of course, the artwork. But the meal itself was art, both in taste and preparation. The service was perfect and we had a window seat facing the fountain show. It was the most perfect meal imaginable. The wine was perfectly chosen and every morsel of food was to die for. There is no better restaurant in all of Las Vegas, hence the hard to come by reservations. If you are looking for a meal that will leave your stomach stuffed and your wallet full, try the Stardust buffet................

Pros: Food, Atmosphere/Decor, Service

.

The wine selection, service and ambiance were superb, but I expected better from the kitchen. The tasting menu was good, but none of the courses prompted superlatives from my wife and I. My main entree, a Filet Mignon, was overdone and average. Servings were small. Fortunately for me, my wife shares her portions with me. We chose the optional wine and cheese pairings. The sommelier definitely knew his wine and cheese, and we thoroughly enjoyed the selections. We chose to dine al fresco despite the sweltering June heat. The front row Dancing Fountain show was wonderful, but, after the 13th show, we were ready for the casino floor and the comfort of A/C. We toured the Picasso's before departing. We'll be back.

Since Picasso has been classified as a Moblie 5 star restaurant- I expected a lot more but was very disappointed. Especially since I had enjoyed Chef Serrano offerings several years back at Masa's in San Francisco. The food was good but not spectacular and the service was a bit unpolished. The one great thing was the wine selection and the wine pairings they offered as a compliment to the menu. Also the sommelier was very friendly and extremely knowlegeable about every wine he brought out.

Pros: food taste, environment, service

Cons: the bill

the most overrated, underserved restaurant I have ever encountered. They need to loose at least a few stars from whatever rating that they last received!

I ate here for my anniversary because I heard it was the best. We had reservations but had to wait 30 to 45 min for a table. The food was delicious but the portions were miniscule. My husband ordered the tasting menu and one of the courses was ONE SCALLOP. The fountains on the lake were beautiful as was the ambiance but I don't think that I would eat here again.

From the moment we walked in we were impressed. Stunning surroundings with a wonderful view of the fountains. The staff were attentive and knowledgable without being obtrusive. The food was the best I've had in the USA. Beautifully presented and a perfection of complimentary flavours. I can't praise this restaurant highly enough.

When we made reservations for Picasso, we were a little concerned about the 2 negative reviews on this web site. All we can conclude after having eaten there is that those people have no idea what a very fine dining experience is. Nothing could be improved upon. The food was delicious, the room beautiful, and the servers were helpful, friendly, and informative. At the end of the meal, we were all quite full--but not uncomfortably so. We can't wait to go there again!
