Jean-philippe Patisserie @ Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas Reviews
Apparently Vegas's first truly European-style pastry shopp! Sep 15, 2008
As I was walking through the Bellagio with Erin, Mel and Louise we stopped upon this magical store which made me feel like we weren't in Vegas anymore!
This store had a HUGE island in the center with any type of sweet and pastry you could imagine! And these aren't your corner pastry shop pastries...these are decadent, light and airy snacks that are rich with flavor that look like works of art! The out side of the shop has a cascading, larger than life chocolate fountain with white and dark chocolate!
Mel and Erin made their way over to the pastries where as I looked at what I like the best... Ice Cream! I decided since I just ate and I wasn't too hungry I was just going to get the sherbert! I got a raspberry/strawberry one and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS! This sherbert had HUGE chunks of fruit in it that made it taste even better!
Apparently Jean-Philippe has sandwiches and salads too... I was just in such a sugar fix I seemed to miss that portion! But it's definitely a pastry lovers dream shop and can't be missed!

Can I get Yum Yum?! May 18, 2008
The chocolate fountain lures you in. The array of desserts entice your sweet tooth. The taste of it all will keep ya coming back for more!
There are wedding cakes displayed all over that almost look too good to eat. In the middle of the place there is a sculpture of a woman using 120 pounds of chocolate! We walked around the glass cases to see what was available before we made our decision.
We ordered gelato in a dish and I got a combination of mint chocolate chip and strawberry. It was reasonable at around $5.00 per dish for 2 scoops.
There were a few tables set up in the actual shop which were full so we took our dessert to a table right outside it that overlooked the pool.
Besides the chocolate, cookies, cakes and other sweet things that are other simple foods like salads and sandwiches to choose from.

Seven years ago when Jean-Philippe Maury came to Las Vegas for a job as pastry chef at the Bellagio, he was unable to speak English and had never worked in a hotel environment before.
Today, Maury, who led the U.S. pastry team to a world championship, is the force behind Jean-Philippe Patisserie at the Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. South. And he's fluent in English, too.
Besides serving 26 different creative pastries, plus gelato and sorbets, the Patisserie also offers hot and cold sandwiches, salads and a variety of beverages.
Currently, the shop, located near the Bellagio Conservatory and new spa tower, sports a large Easter bunny made, over a period of three weeks, with 190 pounds of chocolate. It also features what's billed as the world's largest chocolate fountain.
It's all an attempt to "bring some fresh blood to the town, something exciting for the pastry world," says Maury, who frequently is treated like a celebrity by customers, posing for pictures and giving autographs.
Maury says the Patisserie uses top-quality ingredients and everything is made from scratch.
"It doesn't matter what you do, but you have to be consistent," he says.
The Patisserie, open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., does a lot of walk-up, take-out business, but it also has seating inside for those who want to dine in.
