Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge

Where Japan and Las Vegas meet

Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge showcases innovative dishes from traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine that includes a flare of Korean essence, culminating in an eclectic and uniquely modern dining experience. The menu pairs exquisitely with an abundant selection of specialty sakes and panoramic views of Bellagio's iconic Fountains. Michelin Star award-winning Chef Akira Back is the centerpiece of this multi-sensory dining experience. His menu, traversing authentic traditional and modern Japanese, includes seasonal fish and ingredients flown in daily from the finest markets and purveyors around the world. These products are brought to your plate in an array of preparation ranging from raw, off the knife seafood to 48 hour braised Wagyu beef. Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge's expansive space and elegant wood and stone décor foster a vibrant atmosphere for a memorable Las Vegas evening. A 25-by-13-foot bronze wall-mounted installation of the dorsal side of the yellowtail fish greets you at the entrance, as a hint of what’s to come. In addition to traditional raw fish preparations, Chef Back creates a selection of innovative dishes inspired by his global travels. The restaurant’s hand-selected sake, beer and whisky collection is extensive, encompassing the classic to the avant-garde and representing many prefectures from across Japan.
