Once again finalizing my Vegas trip....lunches

I have our dinners finalized for our trip in September.

-Lotus of Siam
-Mesa Grill

We are also having brunch at Tableau.

Need two weekday lunches....Dh will be at a conference so the lunches will need to be fairly quick and the closer to the Bellagio the better.

Thanks again for all of your all have been priceless in helping with our food itinerary!

  1. You might want to try Sensi in the Bellagio. I've heard good things about it.

    1. Olives(at Bellagio) is one of my favorite lunch spots, usually pretty quick and consistently tasty.

      1. second olives. try the flatbread pizza

        1. I'd recommend Mon Ami Gabi at Paris which is a 5 minute walk from the Bellagio. Maybe by September the weather will be nice enough for you to eat on the patio, which is across the street from the Bellagio fountains. However if you need it to be quick then you should probably get a reservation, and I don't think you can reserve the patio, but you can reserve the front room which is practically as nice as being on the patio.

          I've also enjoyed lunches at Olives, and the patio there is very nice. Again, if time is an issue, consider a reservation, since Olives is extremely popular.

          We ate dinner at Sensi last year and were awfully underwhelmed.

          If you want something more casual, pick up a bite at Jean-Philippe Patisserie inside the Bellagio. We've also enjoyed lunches at the fusiony noodle place there, although it is extremely overpriced (or at least it seems overpriced compared to the Chinese food we get in the San Gabriel Valley and what's available in Las Vegas's Chinatown). The food in the Bellagio coffee shop, just off the conservatory, isn't terrible either.

          1. I'm planning my trip as well and am strongly looking at Enoteca San Marco, Table 10, Olives, Burger Bar, Carnevino, and Valentino as lunch options.

            IMO, skip Mesa for dinner and do it for lunch.

              I'm not a fan of Olives. SIte of the single overall worst dining experience in a half century on this planet. You can do much better both in the Bellagio (Sensi) and elsewhere (pick 'em)

                Scary comment (LOL). I'm going to LV next week, and my friends want to go to Olives (not my pick). What should I avoid--don't want to repeat your experience. I had also recommended Sensi.
