Something most restaurants and hotels boast is outstanding service—but as a luxury sites and services writer who dines out for almost every meal and around the globe, I was especially struck by our waitress, Joy. Knowledgeable about the menu, culinary team, history of the restaurant (she had previously been at Todd English’s OLiVES in the same space), and process, our long lunch turned into an experience I won’t soon forget in Vegas as it was so positive and tranquil, almost like being invited to a friend’s house to enjoy some wonderful ambiance and cuisine. She also was the one to suggest the Spiked Lemon against my protests, so extra points there, Joy.
Modern art adorns the walls and soaring ceilings add to the airy experience. Outside, the patio overlooks the Bellagio Lake and music piped in through the restaurant speakers corresponds with the fountain shows. Sophisticated and appropriate, the décor matches the elevated dining experience.
Open for both lunch and dinner, the dress code is business casual. Whether enjoying a booth inside or the patio outdoors, Spago is a terrific new addition to the Las Vegas culinary scene and does its flagship location in Beverly Hills proud. For more information, visit www.bellagio.com
