10th Wedding Anniversary--Vegas

My DH and I will be there for 3 nights in late June and wanted ideas for the best dinners to be had. We like all cuisines and the more exotic, the better. We also want high end places. Anything special. We are staying at the Bellagio. Thanks.

  1. The Bellagio has a treasure trove of good restaurants. But the most mind-blowing meal we had at that hotel was dinner at Picasso. First off, the restaurant is surrounded by original Picasso paintings and sculptures. The tasting menu with wine pairing was an out-of-this-world experience. My wife had a lobster which tasted so freshly caught that you could taste the ocean in every tender bite. In between courses, you're treated to the fountain show outside the window in the lake facing Las Vegas Boulevard.

      I would have to agree... my now hubby took me there on our first trip to vegas and it was a wow factor sitting among the picasso's, the fountain, the service... but the food was also memorable... the fois gras was spectacular with the peaches (scary, but that meal was 3 years ago and I can still remember it)...

        Well, I have booked Picasso! Looks amazing! I also booked B&B Ristorante (Batali's at the Venetian) and now I need one more! Thanks so much!

      2. Couldn't agree more with Picasso but I would add that if it is cool enough outside you should try sitting out on the patio. Sure the artwork is something to behold but I would arrive 15min early for your reservation, have drinks and admire the art then sit outside. It is wonderful out there! The food quality is always very good and consistant although the menu never seems to change.

        For THE best dinner there are 2 options that are, far and away, the 2 best restaurants in Las Vegas but both will set you back the better part of $1,000 for 2, and easily exceeding if you get carried away with wine or any extras. Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon. Both are astoundingly good.
