When Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Spago opened 25 years ago in Las Vegas, the level of influence he and the restaurant would have on the city was memorable. The innovative and revolutionary restaurant is better known for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter.
Wolfgang’s relentless drive to transform continues today as the chef debuts the new Spago Las Vegas at Bellagio Resort & Casino, bringing two internationally renowned brands together.
“For us, it’s the perfect synergy between Spago and Bellagio,” said Wolfgang Puck. “The resort’s clientele and my longtime guests align perfectly with Spago’s exceptional offerings and elegant atmosphere. It is truly a match made in heaven.”
Bellagio President & COO Randy Morton said, “Wolfgang holds himself and his team to unrivaled high standards in order to create extraordinary culinary experiences around the world. We are thrilled to welcome Spago to Bellagio at its new home within our award-winning culinary portfolio.”
Spago is inspired by California living with its casual elegance and farm-to-table ethos. Wolfgang hand chooses seasonal ingredients to put together the restaurant’s market-driven menu, featuring the chef’s signature fare paired with modern technique and creative elements.
From popular Spago dishes to new dishes offered only at Bellagio, guests have a wealth of options to choose from for lunch or dinner.
Innovation and familiarity may seem like contradictory notions, but that juxtaposition is what defines Spago’s cocktail menu. Crafted with house-made infusions, artisanal spirits and fresh herbs, these libations are inspired by Wolfgang’s culinary philosophy of embracing creativity using the world’s finest ingredients.
The integrity of delivering a memorable experience is as rooted in the architectural design as much as the menu and service. Designer Gelila Puck collaborated with architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti to create a space that allows every seat in the house to capture its own unique perspective of the restaurant’s remarkable location.
Gelila Puck said, “The fountains were everything for us. We used the water as a key element in the design of the restaurant, bringing the beautiful feature to the forefront of the dining experience from the moment our guests enter the restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows highlight the grandeur of the space while distinct dining spaces meld classic architecture with modern art, all creating an atmosphere as memorable as the food.”
Highlights of the exquisitely designed restaurant include:
Spago is located in Via Bellagio and is open for lunch daily from 11:30 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. Dinner is from 5 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., Sunday – Thursday and 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday.

Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio Resort & Casino overlooks a Mediterranean-blue, 8 ½-acre lake in which fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet. Award-winning dining, a world-class art gallery, the exquisite Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the stunning performance of “O” by Cirque du Soleil, a sumptuous spa and salon and exclusive luxury shopping all work together to compose the symphony that is Bellagio.
