Dinner in/near Bellagio pre-"O"

Will be in Vegas in early May and would appreciate dinner suggestions for places either in the Bellagio or nearby as we will be catching the late show of "O" at the Bellagio. The other nights we are going to N9NE and Tao. Budget is not a huge concern, but we aren't likely to pick a $200/pp place either. We like good food, good cocktails/wine and good people-watching, so I'd prefer something that is not too stuffy/quiet. Thanks!

  1. I had dinner at Olives before "O" -- it fits your description of being lively with good people watching (also, you can see the fountains if you get a table outside or near the windows). Moderately priced. Portions are are on the large side, so you might want to consider sharing at least one course. I thought "O" was wonderful and worth every penny!

    1. Look into caesars dining as well. They are connected by a short walk over the bridge. There is a lot better options there for what you are looking for.

      1. comparable to tao in the food/people-watching category and located at bellagio is FIX ( yellowtail also but it's similar to tao ) - the menu tends to favor steak so you might find it too similar to n9ne but there are other options on the menu - it ain't quiet !

          Thanks! I will check these out (and any others people come up with!). I have seen "O" but my friends have not so I volunteered to go back to it because I can't wait for them to see it!
