    I think I asked this same question a few years back, but all I can remember is the Mon Ami Gabi. We are looking for a restaurant where we can wear our blue jeans.

    You can definitely wear blue jeans in Mon Ami Gabi.

    You betcha. Great views of the Strip in general from ETR, as well as the fountains.

    If you are willing to wear better attire, the rail patio tables at Prime@ Bellagio would be the Best Fountain experience

    The view from places like MAG does not begin to compare with the view from one of the restaurant patios at Bellagio. Olives would be the nomination for something reasonably casual.

    The Fontana bar is of special importance to me. I was in Vegas for the NAB convention and I was not getting Vegas at all. We were sitting there having drinks and I watched the fountains and the music was either Sinatra or Copland, maybe both that evening because I know I hear Copland at the fountain. But I just felt like, I love this place. I'll never forget that feeling.

    Outdoor patio at Olives is our special place to take people and see the fountains. Many awesome memories there.

    Great memories of Jimmy Hopper at the Fontana.....really miss it also.

    As for the dining view, Prime can't be beat; and yes, I've worn blue jeans before and no one said a word. I've also worn a coat and tie, and definitely will opt for jeans from now on.

    Any tips on getting a table at Olives out on the Patio? Going for a 10 day trip, so flexible what day, but I'd really like a table right on the railing. (As per my name, I am kind of in love with the fountains).

    I am platinum with mlife so was considering calling their concierge line, but last time at the Bellagio (was only gold then), the concierge said they couldn't help me. Flexible time and dates.

    So Olives, Prime, Jasmine, Sugar Factory, Mon Ami Gabi and EFT.

    I thought Paris was putting another place next to SF with seating outside?
