this place is cool, very convenient when were were staying at the paris, but the price was a little high for what was offered. the crepes are really what make it worth it. no other buffet can make the crepes like they do. i'll give them that.
Duped by Christmas Day Menu – We have been to Le Village Buffet during several trips to Vegas in recent years, and it used to be very good but has definitely gone downhill. We just had their Christmas Day buffet and it was such a horrible experience we will never go back. We expected that there would be a long line, and thought it would be worth the wait for all the tantalizing items listed on their special Christmas Day menu (in addition to the usual fare, there was supposed to be ham, sweet potatoes, pate, duck l'orange, grilled lamb medallions) but after waiting over 2 1/2 hours in line, none of those items was anywhere to be found. There was turkey, but no cranberry sauce, and there was nothing else that was different from their every day buffet except they had gingerbread men, frosted Christmas cookies, and pumpkin pie at the dessert station. So where was this special "Christmas Day" menu?? Did we arrive too late and they ran out? We got there at 4:00 p.m. and waited in line until 6:30. We ate our meal in disgust and left. We didn't bother trying to complain because while we were waiting in line there was a woman who complained about the ridiculous wait time, and she was pretty much ignored. When we got to the front of the line, we had to wait another twenty minutes because they seat the "Diamond" members ahead of everyone else. So take our advice and do not waste your time waiting in line for this very disappointing buffet.
Good Food but Watch Out for the Seafood – My son came down with severe food abominations after having eaten a small bread bowl filled with seafood items. He was incapacitated for about 5 hours in the early morning hours after having eaten the above mentioned item. It resulted in considerable expense to us since we had to cancel our flight, go to a doctor, rebook our flight at three times the original cost and my son went through severe agony as the abominations worked its way through his system.
I called several days later to simply give the Paris people a heads up about the problem. I couldn't get through to them so decided to call. I explained the situation to the person who answered and they said in a rather cold tone that they would pass my comments along. Frankly, she sounded cold and insincere so I decided to write this.
If Paris would like to reimburse us for our inconvenience and severe food abomination that would be nice but improbable, I know. I can be reached at 209 852 2253. Anyway, if you go to the Paris buffet, I suggest you avoid the seafood. The doctor who attended my son said it is the most common cause of food abolmination in Las Vegas, in general. So, there you have it.
By the way, I had to change the word xxxxxx to abomination because the program picked up on the xxxxxx word and would not permit it. So, let's see if this works.
Not What It Used To Be – We have eaten here probably a dozen times since it opened, but not in the last year or two; we were there at about 5:00 PM on Sunday, December 28, 2008. The first thing I noticed was in the menu; the formerly peeled shrimp had been replaced by the "peel and eat" variety. This has long been my own personal dividing line between a "good" and "not so good" buffet. However, as I have pretty much removed shrimp from my diet, this is not a deal-breaker in itself. But more disappointments awaited. Missing were the ceviche dishes from the seafood section; they were replaced by what appeared to be lunch meat. Also gone was the prosciutto near the grilled meat station. The other items available at that station (formerly beef, chicken, and fish prepared on skewers) now consist of three types of sausage, and steak pieces.
As for the quality of the items served, we noted some problems there as well. From the carving station, the prime rib was still good, but the roast beef and turkey were both somewhat dry. The coq au vin, long a favorite, seemed to consist of wings, necks and bones.
On the plus side, the desserts were still as good as we remember them, and our server (a young man named Roilan, if memory serves) was friendly and attentive, despite an apparent shortage of staff. This shortage was evidenced by the slowness of empty tables being cleared, which is inexcusable with a waiting line nearly an hour long.
To sum up, this buffet, which we once considered on a par with the Bellagio in quality (although not in variety) of the menu, has dropped off of our list of places to recommend. This is a sad example of what happens when cost-cutting decisions are made by an MBA armed with an Excel spreadsheet. There is no cell on the spreadsheet which factors "loss of good will" into the bottom line. If you have $25.00 per person to spend, you can do much better by going a bit East on Flamingo Rd. to, for example, Cozymels. And you probably won't have to wait for an hour.
Wonderful Desserts – Request a dining room rather than the central "street" dining and get there early to avoid long lines. It can be very noisy in the general "street" dining area. Food in general was excellent. Desserts to die for...Creme Brule and Chocolate Mousse Tart...all worth the $25 dinner buffet. My husband got his fill of crab legs and I loved the bowtie pasta and roasted chicken...melts in your mouth. But dont leave without trying the blueberry crepes with stawberry sauce...excellent.
The worst ever buffett - Don't Bother – I took my wife there for her birthday and after waiting 20 minutes in a short line that never moved we were seated. After reviewing the food available my wife wanted to walk out. The dishes looked horrible and tasted ever worse. I tried a lot of different things and nothing was good. A big waste of money. The pepsi's was good; that was about it. Also the service was ok. Don't go to this buffet, it's the worst in town. The Planet Hollywood buffet beats this thing away hand down for for same price of $25. Also my wife had a little crappy snow crab leg that tasted and smelled like animal waste! Also the fruit bowl as a highlight. All the meat dishes was horrible. We're both still a little sick after eating there 12 hours later! On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a negative 1. Avoid like the Paris Plague!
Poor quality poor service – We were treated to dinner here for a wedding reception and we ALL were extremely disappointed in both the food for the money and the service Host paid 50.00 a person since it was a wedding reception normally 25.00 a person and service was horrible. there were 25 of us there. The bride asked for another coke and was never brought one. Several of us requested more drink and also were not served. It was required that the host pay a huge gratuity as well and it was NOT deserved. we were all expecting yummy french desserts and were really really disapointed in that catagory. As far as food being prepared for you we did not see that anywhere. Fish dishes were very dry and vegetables very soggy. A place that we definetly would not recommend to anyone . The place was WAY OVER priced for what you get. The Main Street Casino was 100 times better and food delicious and at half the 25.00 a head price.
Nice Sunday brunch – We had a lovely brunch here. I was a bit concerned about the crowds (from the exterior it looked packed due to a long wait line). However, once inside it was cosy and charming. We went with dear friends and had a lovely time.
Worst customer service ever! – Good food...the worse customer service I've ever experienced. I went to Le Village with a large group of family (9ppl) to celebrate the completion of my doctorate. The majority of us wanted to try a buffet in Vegas. Unfortuantely, my mother had recently came down with a terrible infection in her mouth (for which she was on antibiotics). Her jaw was VISABLY swollen and she could barely open her mouth. All she wanted was a bowl of soup broth. However, when my father asked if he could buy a bowl a la carte he was told "no." We were clearly not going to pay $26 for some broth and figured it wouldn't be a big deal to just get her a bowl of broth (and therefore did not pay for her). Within minutes of her sipping the broth, the manager had came over to her, and rudely stated that "she did not pay and could not eat." He then further went on to state that "he would not get the law involved!" When she tried to explain he told her "he didn't want to hear it!" To make matter's worse, the waiter never brought my drink and stopped clearing all of our plates. When confronted, she responded by saying "she wasn't going to help us since one person didn't pay!" Needless to say, we did not leave a tip (for the 1st time in my life)...by no surprise, she sarcastically thanked us for not leaving a tip as we left! I have never been so upset leaving a restaurant...and my mother so humiliated!
Don't eat at Paris buffet!!! – On our recent weekend get away, my wife and I went to Paris buffet for dinner. Contrary to what everyone else wrote on Citysearch, we found the quality of food to be very poor. We would actually recommend Hometown Buffet over this place. We sampled everything at the buffet and nothing tasted very good.
