It's a very popular place!! The queues are often long with wait times of up to an hour for dinner so you need to be keen! We had breakfast and dinner here while staying at the Bellagio. Both were okay with a pretty fair amount of choice. The dinner queue was really long and it took us just on an hour to get to the front of the queue and have our feed. At $30 each it's not cheap though not too bad value given the choice and eat until you bust approach. It's a good option if you're staying here and don't want to walk too far - plenty of cheap fast food options on the strip if you have your walking shoes on.
I think Bellagio's buffet is still one of the best in Las Vegas. The wait can be a PIA though. My husband and I like trying their Friday and Saturday dinners b/c they usually have a new variety of choices. I think Wynn's buffet is a close second to Bellagio's. A tip, which I read on http://www.vegasrex.com/buffets/bellagio/ is to go at the end of lunch and stay for dinner. We've done that and it works. The wait is much shorter as well.
Favorite Dish: pre-split crab legs and chocolate covered jumbo strawberries
The Buffet is most known for the dinners, especially on the weekends when they have King Crab, Filet Mignon, etc. But at the price of $50 per person, not including drinks, it made it a bit tricky to talk my dad and aunt into. So I got my way with breakfast, a more economical $20 meal.
However, when I turned 21...so...5 years ago I went for the dinner with my grandma and mom and it was yummy. In fact, I blame Bellagio for giving me my obsession with sushi!
It's very nice. I would highly recommend going at an off-hour before the lines get long. On Fridays and Saturday nights plan to wait (standing) for about an hour. And they don't give you a buzzer thing, either. It's right in front of the casino too so it kinda sucks watching all those people having fun and you're waiting in line for an hour.
But, I digress, back to breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. Anything you could ask for ... in every country. And during breakfast you can continue to bet with the game of Keeno (alike Bingo and/or the lottery.
The only people I wouldn't recommend this for would be....those dieting!
Favorite Dish: My favorite this time would have to be the breakfast pizza, crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. Waffle bars were available too as well as all the fresh fruit you could eat.
I actually really enjoyed the Buffet at the Bellagio. We went for brunch and the selection was endless and all very tasty.
I really enjoyed the french toast as well as the omelet area. We did have some King Crab legs and they we also very good, I thought they tasted very fresh.
My husband had some more adventurous non breakfast items and they were pretty tasty. The exotic dishes were not as good as the American Classics.
The only bad part about the buffet was the tremendous wait- I think we waited over an hour to get in, it was however, Valentines day and everywhere you looked were couples. In fact we were seated next to some cute newlyweds.
Be careful- it is easy to go overboard on the desert here- we needed a nap after, in VEGAS!
This was the worse dining experience I've ever had in my life. I had Friday night dinner here. Firstly, there is a sign that said a 18% gratuity fee would be added for parties of 8 or more, but we only had 2 people, and our cashier included the 18% gratuity fee on our bill without mentioning anything to us. Also to get in, there was a long wait, about thirty minutes to an hour, but when we got inside, we saw that at least 1/2 of the restaurant was empty, the tables were just not cleaned. Our waiter was very nice, but she wasn't very attentive; we had to ask her for refills on our drinks our used dishes were left on the table for a long time before it was cleaned. The empty dirty tables around us were not cleaned and seated with diners until around 15 minutes after we got our food.
We were really excited to eat here because this was supposedly the "Best Buffet in Vegas" and Friday dinner was supposed to include some special dishes such as kobe beef and venison, etc. The kobe beef was extremely well-done and it was so hard to even chew on it, one bite was enough for me. The first time we got the venison, it tasted pretty good, but the second time, there was a new rack, and just like the kobe beef, it was overcooked. The prime rib, usually my favorite dish, was no good either. How can anyone mess up prime rib?? Every dish looked like it was sitting out for a long time. Even the newly replaced ones. The WORSE part of the dinner were the KING CRAB LEGS! We got a large plate of them because they are usually real good. After eating a piece, I completely lost my appetite. The crab meat was dry, rough, hard to chew, and really salty. The diners around us apparently felt the same. We saw that dishes full of uneaten king crab legs were left on the tables to be cleaned all around our vicinity. We tried the chinese food because we thought it might be a safer choice. The greens looked a bit old and dry, but it was still actually one of the better dishes. We got some fried rice, some singapore noodles, and buns. The buns were ROCK solid on the outside. The noodles were really dry and it was like leftover food taken from a cheap chinese food place. The fried rice, was the same, dry and old. But what shocked me about it were the ingredients used in it, one of the cheapest meats one can find at a chinese marketplace, dry salted pork belly. It's extremely fattening, and $1 can buy you a large piece. The sushi looked uneatable. I work part-time at a Japanese restaurant so I know how the fish is supposed to look like when its fresh, or when its not that fresh, but good enough to be eaten. Even some cheaper buffets that I've been to ($15 a person) had better sushi than here. The fish was obviously discolored. And nope, of course I did not try it, I could barely even set my eyes on the sushi station without my stomache churning. We tried the tortellini, they had two kinds, cheese and spinach. Both were good/decent.
The dessert was the only really good part of our dining experience here at the Bellagio Buffet. I had the creme brulee which was surprisingly delicious, the dark chocolate hazelnut tart, and chocolate covered strawberries. I really wanted to try the bread pudding, but only there were only tiny leftover pieces in the two places where it was served. I waited around five minutes for them to bring out new ones, but they didn't. My boyfriend, who refused to trust anything prepared by chefs after the king crab legs, refused to eat the desserts even when I told him they were good. He ended up eating a plate of fruit and bananas (which you have to ask for) for dessert.
We stayed a total of less than 45 minutes. The guys sitting next to us came after us, and left before us with plates full of food still on their table. I've never eaten dishes that tasted so bad at a restaurant. It's not even that we expected it to be such a high standard and they didn't reach it, they were just way below standard. And to be hailed as one of the best buffets in Vegas is laughable. If I knew the quality of the food (not even counting their service and cleaning issues) beforehand, I would never have came, even if it cost $10 per person. It's simply not worth it.
The Bellagio may not have invented the action buffet, but they certainly have perfected it. An action buffet is one at which the food is cooked in small batches, usually in front of your eyes, so that it is always fresh. At the Bellagio over half the dishes are prepared this way, including the sushi, specialty salads, and of course, sliced to order meats.
Dinner (and to a lesser extent lunch) is special at the Bellagio buffet. Breakfast is good but pretty standard. So this review is mainly about dinner.
The selection is so extensive that you probably won't be able to even sample everything, but here a few things not to miss. There are several stations at which meats are sliced, and they vary day to day. Beef Wellington is always available at dinner and is better than decent. Look for the more exotic offerings, such as goose (usually only around Christmas), buffalo, venison, and duck. Some of the vegetable dishes are very fine indeed -- have a look at the Chinese station in particular. Of course, the old reliables are here too, such as crab legs and shrimp, both very good. Desserts are extensive and more than adequate but the rest of the buffet is so good that I rarely have much room left.
One drawback -- crowds, especially during holiday periods. Try off hours (4:00 is good) or non-weekends. If you are a big gambler, you can get a line pass form the slot host located in the middle of the casino floor. Good luck!
Favorite Dish: The Bellagio buffet does goose and duck very well. This is probably because they are freshly roasted, so the skin is crisp and the meat tender and juicy. They also have show a good touch with the spicing.
Went to the Bellagio buffet during the christmas weekend thinking that it should be one of the best buffets in vegas since its one of the more higher class casinos. But to my surprise, it wasn't as great as I thought it was. It was horrible, but for a prestigious casino like the Bellagio, you would think it'd be pretty especially when they were charging us 30/person (since it was a holiday). I tried the prime rib, baked hen, turkey, lamb, bacon, and french toast. I thought I'd for sure be stuffing myself with prime rib but it was pretty bland. The best part was probably the french toast. Definitely a let down for me but ohh well, not like I was in vegas for the food.
Favorite Dish: The french toast I must say was the best. It wasn't the greatest but it sure beats the rest of the stuff they were serving.
We only ate breakfast at the Bellagio Buffet, this was great plenty of choice and great value. I have read reviews were alot of people complained about long queues but we never experienced this, we was down for Breakfast before 9am most mornings but if you leave it any later expect to queue.
I was not very impressed with the Buffet at the Bellagio. There was not one thing that I tasted that was really great. There was a pretty wide assortment of food that was mediocre at best. There was a lot of seafood but in my opinion it didnt taste very fresh. No chicken options were avilable and while there was quail and turkey, there wasnt much red meat.
If we had to do it over again, we would save the $35 and the hour we spent in line and go have a better, higher quality meal at a nice restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I know this doesnt make any sense with all of the exotic food offered but we really enjoyed the pizza.
Wow, what a buffet. Has every type of food you could imagine.
We paid $26.95 + tax for a buffet dinner and $13.95 + tax for a buffet breakfast.
I know that you can get cheaper buffets in other hotels but seeing as we were staying here it seemed such good value to head down for something to eat.
All non alcoholic drinks are included and if you want to gamble you can play Keno from your table.
Be prepared for to queue for each buffet, but it doesn't take too long to get to the till to pay and then be taken to your table.
Favorite Dish: The desserts are lovely, loads to try and enjoy.
For breakfast you can even eat Pizza should you fancy it.
We found that we didn't need to eat lunch after we had breakfast, it just about kept us going till dinner time.
