Service, food, ambience all combined to make a memorable evening. The waiters ability to assist us with a US wine to match our food was outstanding-and perfectly matched our needs.
We would cheerfully go back.

Located at the Bellagio, the Picasso offers a fine dining experience with the bonus of seeing the fountain show plus being surrounded by original Picasso paintings.

I had the $115/person prix fixe menu and the food quality was very good. For my main course, I ordered the roasted pigeon and my wife had the milk fed veal chop. Both dishes were very well prepared and tasty.

The wine list is extensive. The corkage fee is $50/bottle with a 2 bottle maximum (1 bottle for magnums) as long as the wine is not on their wine list.

Service was attentive and at par with the caliber of the restaurant. They gave each guest a parting gift placed in an elegant Picasso gift box. It was a mini-cupcake which did not taste as good as the packaging it came in.

Overall, the dining experience was good. Would I go back?...Maybe.

We felt as if we were the only ones in the dining room although it was full. We could see the Bellagio fountain show from our table. And words fail me about the cuisine.

The food was excellent, the service really wonderful. For instance, we appreciated that two servers were on hand so that all four people at our table were served at precisely the same time. The ambience could not be better - eleven works by Picasso on the walls in the midst of a beautiful dining room. And outside the windows, the beautiful Bellagio fountains. It was lovely to be able to read about the paintings in a nicely constructed album made available to us. But be aware that dinner choices, though no doubt all excellent, are not broad, and there is no a la carte menu. When we asked for one, it was explained that the one on the right hand side of the menu was more "a la carte" than the one on the left, as it had more choices for each course (two). The offerings did not appeal at first glance - e.g. oysters, foie gras, roast pigeon and fallow deer - so we decided on the prix fixe (at $125 each) of lobster salad, scallop (yes, singular - this is definitely about quality and not quantity, although the meal in total was quite satisfying), and the choice of turbot or lamb. The wine that we chose, though pricey by our usual standards, was memorable, and research showed it was only $6 higher in price than in the shops. This was a special birthday occasion, and it will always be remembered as a magical evening. Well, it has to be - we couldn't afford to repeat it very often!

Fantastic food and experience. We had the tasting menu and wine parings and were not disappointed. Extremely knowledgeable sommelier. However, the service was overly attentive - there was not enough time between each course (in fact a few minutes at most) and the staff hovered over you while you were eating and even cleared my husband's plate away while I was still eating and had half my food left on the plate. This isn't what you expect when you're paying those prices and we would have liked to have been able to savour the experience at a slightly more relaxed pace. Just felt slightly rushed.
