Since opening with the Bellagio, on its opening day in October 1998, Olives by Todd English has been a restaurant staple in Las Vegas. Todd English truly set the tone for all of the other Vegas restaurants with his high class and unique cuisine establishments. English’s original Olives restaurant opened in Charlestown, Massachusetts in April 1989. Having great success in Massachusetts, Olives soon expanded to other locations such as the W Hotel at Union Square in New York City, Washington D.C., the St. Regis in Aspen, CO, and, of course, the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Todd English has had great success with his Olives locations and his other restaurants as well. Today, English owns and operates 17 restaurants throughout the country, has his own line of cookware products, and has even been recognized in People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.” The recognition of Todd English as one of the most beautiful people in People Magazine comes as no surprise! His beautiful cooking, charismatic personality, and classy taste shine through at his Olives Las Vegas restaurant.
Overlooking Lake Bellagio, Olives presents a casual romantic setting for both lunch and dinner. Olives recently underwent renovation and is now back, and better than ever. Using romantic reds and blacks set to a candlelight-like glow, you will immediately be relaxed. Olive branches with adorning candles set the mood of the room, and the view doesn’t hurt either. You can choose to dine inside or out on their acclaimed 50 seat patio, overlooking the Bellagio Fountain show.
Olives presents interpretive modern Mediterranean cuisine. They have a great selection of house-made pastas, steaks, flatbreads, and more.
