Enjoy every exquisite AAA Five Diamond Award-winning enhancement. Peer out your window and view the exhilarating Las Vegas Strip, the pristine waters of Lake Bellagio or the picture-perfect surrounding mountains. Just beyond Bellagio's spacious lobby lies the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a kaleidoscope for your senses. You can also experience the most ambitious, commanding water feature ever conceived. You'll be swept away by this breathtaking union of water, music and light.
Whether you're staying at the Bellagio or not, you must take a few minutes to stop and watch the famous fountains--they dance to music every 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the day/time. But if you really need to impress someone, reserve a Strip-facing king corner suite at this artpiece of a hotel. Put a bottle of champagne on ice, take a bubble bath for two in the enormous tub looking out over all of Las Vegas, and watch the famous Bellagio fountains erupt against the backdrop of Paris' Eiffel Tower together. You'll find it hard to leave the room, but at least venture down to the pool for a piña colada and a dip, and maybe to Olives restaurant for the spring pea mezzaluna.
AVOID! – do not eat here. everything was completely inedible. i developed a stomach ache about 20 minutes after eating some of the seafood there. Nothing was fresh. some of the meat served, such as the lamb chops, was still raw. if a place can screw up on potatoes, what else is there left to say? completely over priced for the quality of food. yes, there was a big selection, but i would rather eat 1 good thing than 25 nauseating things.
When in Vegas- its a must! – If you're visiting Vegas eating at a buffet is a must, esp. this place! yes the line is long, but so is everywhere else, the food is totally worth it tho. Instead of their steak, I always go for their beef cubes, it melts in your mouth! the shrimp is really plump and fresh, I love their polenta so much that I tried making it at home... bad outcome. Their sushi bar is pretty simple, but you can ask them to make you something special . They have a very delish salad station, one side you have the typical salad bar and next to it a station of variety of selection which is served pre-mixed. Their deserts speaks for themselves and getting a cup of coffee is a must!
Sometimes service is slow if you are seated in the back or side corners, it depends where you are seated so if you dont like it, ask them to move you center front.
Tons of selection, each made to perfection – This buffet features grouped varieties of foods from around the world as well as a sliced meats station, traditional breakfast station, and outstanding self-serve icecreams and pastries from their extremely talented pastry chef. Best bargain in town.
Be Forwarned and read the reviews! – We went for lunch and the waitress was good, but that was all.
The food was les than mediocre. It is the worst arranged buffet I have ever eaten at! Period! I use a cane, but can't when getting my food. I had to wait 15 minutes in the salad line to get to the carving tables. What a waste of time for what I got. The only beef was flank steak like and was so tough it was like eating a car tire and I could not eat it. The turkey was tasteless. I went back for some ribs and salmon, this time cutting in line, and the carver was obnoxious. He told a Vietnamese gentleman, that also cut in next to me, to go the front of the line, and when he did not, the server walked away. We waited and waited for another carver to come back, and several minutes later he did, but making rude remarks. The ribs were not even OK and the smoked salmon was like shoe leather. Again a waste of time for the pain, but no gain!
I was expecting wonders when we went to the Bellagio Buffet from all of the hoop-la, but left wondering if we had gone to the right place. Extremely over rated, poor selection, far too costly for what you get and the layout is phenomenally poor.
Salad bars are usually on their own island, but not here! It is as if they want you to get your salad and hot food all at the same time, cutting down on how much you can take.
Be forewarned! If you have the same experience, you were told!
I would never go back even if the price was a normal buffet price. I did eat a worse buffet once, the Imperial palace 20 years ago.
Don't waste your money. But then again maybe dinner is better?
Worst Service and Frozen Food – Had to wait 20 minutes to get an ice tea. I told the manager , he replies, sorry. The crab legs were frozen hard. I had to chew the ice through crab meat. For $39. go have a nice meal or goo to the buffet at Rio, T.I., Wynn or even Circus Circus.
Save your money and your stomach, skip the this buffet line
Worst experience of my food life – I have been waiting several years to try the Bellagio?s buffet brunch and was excited to during this trip. I was in Las Vegas with 4 other friends and we had a wonderful time and great meals. The food at the Bellagio was great, but I believe it made us very, very ill. Within hours of eating there (and we had eaten nowhere else that day) three of us had severe symptoms of bad food. We could not even keep water down for over 24 hours. The three of us had shared a desert, the bread pudding, that the other two had not tried. We were so sick that I am quite worried for anyone who might have been elderly and who ate at the Bellagio on that day.
A Lovely Buffet with Delicious, Fresh and Immaginitive Choices – We went there yesterday for lunch. What struck me was the non-buffet feel to the rooms once you were seated. It felt like a restaurant. They even have a bar where you can sit and have your meal if you wish. Like everything in the Bellagio, there is great attention to detail and an overall feeling of luxury. The food was remarkably fresh. There was an excellent selection. I did think the service was a little on the slow side, but very helpful and friendly once it arrived. They had a good international variety of selections but also all of the American favorites and some entrees that were quite unusual (venison, giant artichoke hearts, two kinds of duck, pesto mashed potatoes) and the wonderful desserts that we always look forward to at the Las Vegas buffets (three varieties of mousse, all sorts of cakes, delicious chocolate brownies and cookies). Frankly, all of the buffets are about equally priced, so I think it makes sense to go to the better ones.
Amazing range of choices and freshly-made everything! Not so great service. – On a recent visit with my boyfriend and another couple to Vegas we thought we'd try the buffet here. It was slightly more money than the regular dinner buffet because it was the Holiday season. However, I think it was around forty per person. We had to wait in line for about 20 minute, which we were told would be an hour wait. This was at about 9:30 on the Friday night btw. Christmas and New Years, 2007. I had never been to a buffet before and some of the others in our group had been to several including the buffet at the Bellagio. We all thought it was delicious! The assortment of different foods and cuisines was really outstanding. We had a picky eater with us and she was able to find plenty of good stuff to eat. For the person commenting that it caters to Asians with all the Asian food, you must be joking! It was one of the smallest cuisines. I guarantee there was as much Italian cuisine choices as Asian. So "whatever" to that guy. Desserts were good as well. The best was the gold chocolate tart thing! D-lish! I don't think for the price that it was expensive at all. You can easily spend that on a so-so meal in NYC (where we dine often) and still not feel full. Our waiter was awful however. He was clueless half the time and rarely came to fill our drinks or take plates away. Both of the people who had been to the Bellagio thought this buffet was far better. I'm glad we went during an "off" time. We came back to another restaurant and passed by the buffet on that following Sunday evening....the wait time was over 2 hours!! It's good, but not that good. Skip the buffet if the wait is more than an hour. There are plenty of other good choices in the hotel, such as the cafe right down the hall from it called Terrace Point Cafe.
Is this really AAA 5 diamond?? – I am writing this review from the hotel room. First let me just say how unimpressed I was at the hotel and the service.
Checkin took more than 30 mins. After a long 9 hour drive from San Francisco the last thing we wanted to do was wait another 30 mins to checkin to the hotel room. The lines were terribly long and there weren't enough staff to check people in.
Once we were finally checked in, we had to walk through the casino in order to get to the hotel room. With such a crowded lobby and casino you can just imagine what a hassle this was!
The room is very dated. The television set is a 27 inch Philips flat screen (notice not flat panel). One door panel of the TV cabinet was missing and they just left the screw and bolt dangling. Again is this really 5 diamond? I've stayed in many hotels all over the world and this is the first time I've ever seen this! There were markings on the walls - just wear and tear I guess over the years. There were two chairs in the room which looked very dingy and worn. And to top it off one corner of the room smelled like trash!
The bathroom is very spacious and nicely decorated. There is both a bath tub and a shower stall (the drain in the shower stall was clogged!). There is only one sink however.
Overall, I had such high expectations for this hotel and had a very disappointing experience here. In all honesty for $100 less the New York, New York hotel was not much of step down from this room at the Bellagio. If you're looking for a hotel on the strip, I would recommend the Venetian. All rooms are suites, you get more for your money, and there is easier access to the hotel room without having to lug your luggage through the casino.
Beautiful Hotel - Terrible Buffet – There is a big difference on what they describe as gourmet on the east coast and in the desert. If you are coming from the east coast and have had the buffet at Harrah's in Atlantic City, DO NOT EXPECT the same thing.
First of all I dont consider crab legs and quail as gourmet. And serving 4-6 different types of pizza doesnt really cut it either. They obvious cater to asian clients with a large sushi section. The decor was like I was dining in Circus Circus and not a upscale hotel.
For $36 I expected alot more than what I got. The only bright spot was the BBQ Brisket and Prime rib. I have to agree with others when they say that the service was a bit slow.
So my advice to others is if you have other options, take them first. If you feel like steak, try Alan Alberts on the strip, its located off the road a little right before MGM Grand.
