Picasso Vs. Bartolotta? Please Help

I just moved to Vegas from DC and have two friends visiting in September. Both are finishing up at CIA in Hyde Park so I would like to make the most of the four nights. So far we are eating at L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Rosemary's. I need two more dinners and am struggling--I don't think we want to spend the money for Alex or Guy Savoy and since we are going off the strip for Rosemary's I think we will pass on LOS. What do you all think of Picasso Vs. Bartolotta? In addition any other suggestions would be great. Thanks.

  1. Both choices are excellent. I have a slight preference for Picasso over Bartolotta, but since you're already eating French one night, Bartolotta would offer the greatest variety.

    1. in terms of food quality/dining experience, both are great. picasso is price fixe, with some good choices, and great wine pairings. bartolotta is whole grilled fish flown in daily from italy. alex is in this league, too. i love l'atelier.

      1. May I suggest the line-up to be L'Atelier first, LOS second, and grand finale at Picasso. Food is good at Rosemary's but atmosphere is drab, esp. for out of town visitors. Having said that, I suggested LOS in the middle to break up the continental/french cuisines and the atmosphere really fits the authentic food. Picasso is a definite winner over Bartolotta in terms of service, quality of food, and atmosphere for visitors. Who can beat being surrounded by Picasso, Andre Bocelli and dancing waters? They can find good Italian anywhere but could not replicate this experience outside of LV! Another restaurant to try with a different type of cuisine would be Okada at the Wynn. Bouchon is great for breakfast or sunday brunch. Alize is great for the Panoramic view, but alas, they are all French! I would avoid Bartolotta since we had terrible and slow service while we were there. Overpriced for what you get.
