Bellagio’s The Garden Table
Bellagio is one of the most iconic properties in Vegas, and the country. The property is stunning and the common areas are world class (even if I am not a huge fan of it). One of the top 3, must see attractions in Vegas is the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. It is out of this world beautiful and constantly changing. I enjoy it every time I visit. What if you could take in the sights, sounds and smells over a few hour period while having a specially catered meal? That is what the Bellagio’s The Garden Table looks to offer. Talk about a Gram worthy dining experience right there (even if I hate the Gram as well).
The Garden Table Details
The Garden Table at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens will be available for brunch and dinner reservations. Here is the press release:
The Garden Table invites guests to enjoy an epicurean adventure at a table set within the spectacular beauty of Bellagio’s stunning floral masterpiece. Specialty pre-fixe menus crafted by the award-winning teams at MICHAEL MINA Bellagio and Sadelle’s Café feature fare that will delight all the senses.
The inaugural Garden Table sits within the Conservatory’s summer display, “Jungle of Dreams,” and pays homage to the animal kingdom with 28 animal sculptures and close to 10,000 plants and flowers. The stunning work of art takes guests on a journey through a magical place with moments of discovery and whimsy around every corner, as majestic animals gather to celebrate the coronation of the king of the jungle. Highlights include fanciful pink flamingos, ornate blue parrots, monkeys, blue herons, giraffes, and a 20-foot-tall lion, along with a theatrical soundtrack of bird, cricket and wind sounds that add a riveting layer of surprise and delight to the entire experience. “Jungle of Dreams” is on display through September 10, 2022.

The Garden Table Dining Experience: Final Thoughts
This sounds like a really cool dining experience. One where you get to immerse yourself into the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens for longer then the normal 20 minutes etc. you get when walking through. It comes with a hefty price tag for sure though. If you want to go bougie on a budget I guess the “brunch” is the way to go. Although it seems like it is mostly bagels and fruit, or a DoubleTree breakfast, so not what you want to see for $75. I think the value is better with the dinner even if it comes with a large $250 price tag.
Will this be on the list of options for your next visit to Sin City? Or do you think it will be an overpriced view? Let me know in the comments.
Next we need a dining table over the water next to the fountains Bellagio. One you need to take a boat to. Make it happen!
