This list could be entirely populated by locations inside the Wynn and Bellagio, and hell, maybe it should be. We can’t claim “best restaurant patios in Vegas” without paying homage to the Wynn, which has succeeded in creating its own breathtaking outdoor spaces tucked away within the property. The Lake of Dreams is one of these spaces, which includes a three-acre lake, 90-foot waterfall, 1,500 pine trees, and a multimedia entertainment experience featuring state-of-the-art lighting and sound and larger-than-life colorful puppetry. And one of the best places to view it all is on the patio at Lakeside, Wynn’s fine dining seafood restaurant and steakhouse, where the freshest of fish is flown in daily from around the world.

Lakeside has a seafood menu that not only matches, but surpasses the beauty of its environment, which includes an open-air dining room and large patio overlooking the Wynn's Lake of Dreams—a spectacle that deserves to be on any bucket list of Las Vegas dining experiences. Chef David Middleton takes his sourcing seriously, whether it's mahi-mahi and snapper from Hawaii or wild tiger shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico. The salmon, farmed from remote, pristine New Zealand waters, is as good as it gets. Middleton knows when to keep things simple, but also has a few creative dishes on the menu. The wild U-10 diver scallops are given an Asian touch with Okinawan sweet potatoes, porcini mushrooms, and snow peas, accompanied by a coconut broth poured tableside. Maine lobsters—steamed, split, and roasted—are especially good with basil yuzu butter. As great as things are, Lakeside is only getting better. In recent months, the restaurant added a few tanks and picked up the live seafood and langoustine program that once thrived at the now-closed Costa di Mare.
