Buffet Ratings

We are returning to Vegas after a lonnggg period away and was wondering if there are any websites that list the favorite buffets in town, or give them ratings?

On another note, I have started playing MyVegas which lists several buffets as an option to trade in loyalty points and was wondering if someone knew which was the best of those listed. Thanks.

Top buffets on the Strip generally considered to be:

Wynn

Bellagio

Wicked Spoon (Cosmo)

Bacchanal (sp?) (Caesars)

Off-Strip, M Resort and Red Rock get good reviews.

Downtown, Main Street Station is probably the best.

Sorry, I can't help with the MyVegas question.

We used the Aria breakfast/lunch buffet from My Vegas and it was really good for a freebie. We were a little late getting there for breakfast and ended up catching it as it was changing over to lunch with a few breakfast items still out as well.

We had also picked up the Bellagio dinner buffet reward, but ended up not using it. We went to Wicked Spoon on a Friday night because our adult son particularly wanted to try it. It was quite good, but not sure it was worth $40 per person.

This is a lot simpler than everyone makes it seem. The 4 star hotels have better buffets than the 3 star hotels, which are better than those at the 2 star hotels. OR The $45 buffet is better than the $35 buffet, which is better than the $25 buffet.

There are no real exceptions to this on the Strip. If you leave the Strip, the pricing models will be a little different.

By far the best of the MyVegas buffet rewards is Bellagio followed by Aria, Mandalay Bay/Mirage, then Monte Carlo a big step down to Luxor and then even further to down to Excalibur.

There is a "hidden value" at Aria - the unlimited booze option for about $13 includes La Marca Prosecco, one of the best of its kind with a retail price of about $14. Probably the only restaurant on the planet where you can drink good wine at retail prices.

Thanks for the fast replies and links. I will check them out right away. I am sure I will be shocked as to the changes in Vegas since our last trip but excited to see it again.

We had the Sunday brunch at Mirage yesterday and were surprised how good it is. We had planned to grab something quick but there were lines for everything and we had to leave for the airport. No one was sitting at the bar at all (our preferance) so we walked right in.

Tons of variety and the price of $33 included unlimited wine, beer, champagne and mimosas. I haven't heard much about it in the past but we would go again.They had an excellent pho and yummy dumplings and potstickers and my husband was happy with his omelete, prime rib and shellfish (crab legs/ shrimp and several varities of shrimp cocktails).

Ate at Bellagio and was not impressed. The buffet is smaller than some Indian casinos I have been to and was only above average. I actually like Mandalay Bay better which is cheaper in loyalty coins.

Wynn is the tops if you are paying and so should Aria and Mirage.

A great resource for buffets is top-buffet.com. It has lots of buffet reviews many of which are updated regularly. The website is perhaps a little homemade but all the info is there.

The website is run by an eccentric woman named Jules who has made countless buffet videos on YouTube that are well worth watching. She is entertaining to watch, has an alluring (Italian I think) accent and genuinely seems to be the world's biggest buffet fan. Search for Jules buffet in YouTube.
