Best in town - Chuck60 (06/07/2015) - 5 out of 5 stars
In sheer terms of cuisine options and quality, this is the best buffet in Las Vegas. It offers more 'pop' from every direction in that regard. Problem is...we have to pay more for the best. Cheers...

too much $ 4 a buffet - lv frecuent visitor (05/16/2015) - 2 out of 5 stars
the buffet is good in quality and variety,but not for that kind of money,get that price down!

Baccanal Buffet - c1ueee (01/09/2015) - 5 out of 5 stars
If you're not a Diamond or above, disregard. That's because the Baccanal Buffet always has a long line at peak times - and I'm sure this would detract from the experience. However, for those for whom the wait isn't an issue for whatever reason, the Baccanal Buffet is by far the best in Las Vegas. Price is high, but they have a large number of offerings which are both tasty and unique: 1) Chinese section is the best anyway by far. I've had amazing stuff including black pepper crab. 2) Lunch and later has things like the Wagyu Pork sliders. These are just incredibly tasty. Combined with curley fries - Yum! 3) They have several varieties of crab legs. Many places only offer 1 or 2. This is bad for inexperienced buffet eaters as they all taste different and some are actively dangerous (I saw one moron try to crack a stone crab claw with his teeth). 4) The meat station - there's always the same guy there (for breakfast/lunch) - he's super friendly and has an amazing assortment of smoked ribs, brisket, and so forth. He'll even fry up the steaks if you ask. So, the other reviews are negative, but from what I read are clearly due to inexperienced, clueless, or simply poor judgment people (you don't go to a buffet right before they close. Duh!)

Bad service - Hap nguyen (12/31/2014) - 1 out of 5 stars
It took me almost 6 hours waiting. We were seating on the table at 10 pm. We ate a couple plate of food and they cleaned up all counter. No more food for us. That is suck. It looks like the restaurant steal our money.

- zatoichi2 (10/19/2014) - 2 out of 5 stars
I am only giving this place 2 stars because of the nice Persian waitress that took care of my table, she was very friendly and polite. As for the rest of this place, I swear I have seen better food in places that charge $10-$12 for their buffets in Los Angeles. Very unhappy, miserable looking servers behind the counter, very unfriendly and rude, but then what you expect when your employer barely pays you anything and ... Anyways, if you don't mind the 5-6 mile drive, you can go to buffets in smaller hotels that the locals frequent and get better food for $30-$40 cheaper. The food at Bacchanal Buffet is nothing special and badly prepared, stay away.

Cleanliness - D Borowitz (07/03/2014) - 1 out of 5 stars
My family of four went there July2nd. As my son and wife were getting their food I noticed that under our table was filthy. Pieces of salmon sticking to my shoe. And the bench was also stained with food and drinks. I lost my appetite. I asked our server and I was approached by the asst. manager Taylor. Bad attitude, I showed her the mess and said they could move us and give us a free drink as complimentary. I asked for a refund. In leaving I told here I will go some place clean like the nearest Denny's. The manager wouldn't even come out to inspect. Cleanliness I rated a 1, attentiveness 3, food, I don't know lost my appetite.

Bacchanal dinner buffet - Lam nguyen (05/11/2014) - 2 out of 5 stars
Way over price. Food is so so comparing to Bellagio buffet. Service is slow but expected big tips. Place is noisy because of a group of loud chinese tourists, i ask to change the table but the waitress ignore my request .. No tip for her.

Dinner - dave8151 (02/22/2014) - 4.5 out of 5 stars
2/13/14. 10 minute wait at 4pm. All the food we had was very good. What set this buffet apart from the others was the freshness and specific tastes of each item. We definitely will eat here again, but only for a special treat due to the high cost.

Brunch - LVGAMBLER (02/12/2014) - 1 out of 5 stars
I had the Sunday brunch on 2-9-14 and the only reason I gave it a "1" is because you can't put in a "0". The sushi was just some cut rolls with very little fish. The crab legs were precut causing them to be dry. Just about everything else was sub par for a high end buffet. The scrimp was the decent thing there. I'm sure glad my brother had a meal comp for us.

Well worth the price - ribbit66 (08/30/2013) - 5 out of 5 stars
Had dinner on Monday night will eat ther every trip from now on it was awsome every food station was great and not like the everyday buffet i ate so much i almost rolled out of ther spend the money and enjoy all the great tasting food

too much $ for a buffet - lv frecuent visitor (06/24/2013) - 3 out of 5 stars
good food and service ,very good desserts,but i think is too much money ($35.00) for a lunch buffet,in my personal opiniĆ³n planet Hollywood buffet is the best in quality and Price.

Disappointed - Transam (06/17/2013) - 1 out of 5 stars
Wife and I went there June 5 for dinner to celebrate 30th anniversary. Read other reviewers comments on how good it is. Food was disappointing. Crab was tasteless, prime rib was over-cooked, dry and cut very thin even after asking for thick cut. Lamb chops were hit and miss, some cooked right some over-cooked. One of the clams in my bucket was filled with a black muck - chef said it was sand. Many hot foods were cold. Lasagna was cold on the inside and the shell was hard. The presentation was impressive but the food was disappointing. Corn dogs and fried pig skins at a high end buffet? For being the most expensive dinner buffet in Las Vegas I expected much more. In my opinion, the food at the regular buffet at their Rio property is equal to or better than this buffet and I don't eat at Rio anymore. In my opinion, other high end hotels on the strip have better buffets at lower prices. If you do go here, don't forget you can save one whole dollar off the buffet price by using your players card.

Not worth the price - burkjw (04/21/2013) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
I went to this buffet for breakfast when it first opened and thought it was an outstanding value. I just went on April 11, 2013 and don't think it is worth the value for dinner. The food is still good, but not remarkedly better than other high end buffets. The service wasn't very good and it was very crowded, and I went at about 9:00 p.m. on a Thursday. At almost $50 with tax, that's just too much for a buffet.

Awesome! - richardwilliams (03/24/2013) - 4.5 out of 5 stars
We enjoyed this fabulous buffet on on Tuesday night. After purchasing the Buffet of Buffets one day prior, we chose to use our last opportunity at this new buffet. Pros: 1. No line whatsoever at 4:00 pm. We paid and were seated immediately. 2. Endless choices in every food category. 3. Best desserts I have ever eaten. 4. Great specialty items that don't appear on other buffets in town. 5. Great service from our attendant. 6. Best meat carving station I've ever seen. Cons: 1. After paying the Buffet of Buffets 24-hour price, we still had to pay an additional $25 for dinner. This was not the widely advertised $15 dinner up-charge, and wasn't even posted at the entrance to the buffet. 2. The dining room was crowded and a bit trying when negotiating the trip from your table to the food. Summary: the price is very steep and this buffet is certainly not for the person who isn't hungry, but the quality is unmatched. This is the best buffet I have ever eaten. I cannot imagine what it would take to make a better one. Not a five rating because of the steep price.

Good food, Poor service - Pjflyid (03/19/2013) - 4 out of 5 stars
Ate here yesterday at about 4:30. 2 hour wait the night before so we decided to go early. Food was above average. Asian food was a little dissappointing. Deserts were great. What was really upsetting was the poor service once we got seated. Waited five minutes to place are drink order but no one helped us so we decided just to get up and get some food. When we got back still no one around, not even water on the table. Our waiter finally showed up and conveniately had a tray of sodas with him. Luckily enough that worked for us. Still had a hard time just getting a refill. The place was only half empty so I can imagine what it would have been like if busy. If you can get good service then I would recommend you try it but I probably won't go back because something this expensive should have a lot better service. One last note make sure you don't tip at the register. Bring cash to tip so if you get poor service you can adjust accordingly.

Amazing - Timing must be everything - mlfeatherbee (02/06/2013) - 4.5 out of 5 stars
I ate here Thurs before BigGame. Got in line at 4:30pm, paid and seated by 4:35 pm. Even when I left at 6:30pm the line was not more than 15-20 people deep. I wouldn't consider this a buffet - it is more a culinary experience. I recommend casing the whole joint by starting at the back with the Asian section and working your way past the desserts and then begin at the Seafood section since you have now seen all the delights and can focus on what you really want to try. The problem is I wanted to try it all, but no avail. I did manage 4 plates of deliciousness and finally succumbed to the cheesecake lollipops. Expensive? Yes, but definitely worth the experience. You just cant go in thinking it's a "buffet". Kick back, grab a glass of wine and enjoy yourself!

buffet - phammie (12/23/2012) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
Ate at the buffett for dinner.We arrived and took our place in line at 5:30 and at 8:00 we paid for our tickets to eat,at this point we waited another 45 minutes for a table.The food was good and our server was excellent but it is definately not worth the long wait.

bacchanal buffet - kathleen (11/20/2012) - 1 out of 5 stars
I just got back from having dinner for a party of 4. I was so disappointed of the quality of your food. After reading Las Vegas Advisor Review I expected much more. I am a local and frequent all the buffets and I would not rate this buffet in the top 10 buffets.

Excellent Buffet! - candydave (11/18/2012) - 5 out of 5 stars
This buffet was excellent! It was better than we expected and superior to the Bellagio buffet we had on our last trip in August. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is wonderful. The highlights for us were the shrimp cocktail (big shrimp with nice spicy cocktail sauce), the sliders (better than the burger we had at Burger Brasserie), sweet potato tater tots, chicken fried steak (one of the best I ever had), the sushi (tuna, salmon, and California rolls), the pizza, fresh berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries) with yogurt and delicious granola, and the wonderful desserts. Yes it's a little pricey, but worth it considering the food quality. We'll be hitting this one every visit.

LUNCH PRICE TOO HIGH - lasvegas (11/01/2012) - 3 out of 5 stars
I went to lunch on October 1, 2012 and they had raised the prices since opening day. Some of the food was very good. Prices are too high.

exellent breakfast - frecuent lv visitor (03/03/2011) - 4.5 out of 5 stars
my wife and i had breakfast for 2 days in january and everything was first class,service,food quality and nice pool views.

scared, but tried it - teach8 (08/01/2010) - 4 out of 5 stars
After reading all the negative comments about this buffet, we decided to try it as part of the Buffet of Buffet deals. What a pleasant surprise it was! It is true that they don't offer the vast selection of the other "premium" buffets, but I thought the food was fresher, hot, and good. The prime rib was excellent, Although the shrim were you peel 'em, they were laeger than PH or Paris. There was a nice assortment of side dishes as well. The dessert selection was small and they did not offer ice cream. The room was open and airy, and I truly think that this could be on the list for our next trip. Very glad we went.

Horrible - tjgwm0719 (07/02/2010) - 1 out of 5 stars
WOW- this buffet is an embarassment to "the Roman Empire". I had a coupon for two FREE buffets and it was still too much! Very sad, limited selection of food. What food they did have was very bland. Asian section consisted of white rice and one chicken dish. the "salad station" was a bowl of lettuce with a few veggie options. Hot food was awful. I hope that first timers to Vegas don't think this is a standard buffet in Vegas...what a shame.

buffet - oysterriver1 (04/22/2010) - 1 out of 5 stars
In the spring of '09, I was sent a $10 coupon from Caesars Palace to use in their buffet. The cashier claimed it was not for the buffet. I was polite at first, then when things were not resolved, asked to speak to the manager. I was told "I'm not bothering the manager for something this trivial". I took her name. The food selection is tiny and nothing special. The desserts were excellent and well presented. To Caesars Palace credit, I was called regarding the very poor service there and was told they had "several complaints about her before". What the??? Our two previous visits had no service issues, but the food selection was pitiful. For a place of that size,what is going on? Back in 1998, I went to the buffet there (in a different location then), and it was excellent. I am not picky by any means, but this is not a buffet befitting the "flagship" property of Harrahs Entertainment.

Waste of time - Mikern (03/03/2010) - 1 out of 5 stars
I can't believe they keep this place open. CP is an amazing casino/hotel and one of my favorites on the strip. However, this buffet is a joke and we walked out after being seated. The selection is terrible, tiny and a huge ripoff for the price. What is the point of this place?

- JASONT (11/17/2009) - 2 out of 5 stars
Ate here end of Oct'09- wish i didn't! There was a long queue at the Bellagio so we thought we'd try Caesars as starving. Got there an hour before kick out time and there was no queue ( should have taken the hint). Paid over $55 for 2 and OMG was it pretty shocking. The buffet itself is a small and wierd affair as all the food are in tiny coffin like pots thats are extremely difficult to open. The service was dire and everyone who was eating looked glum. We had an entree of crab legs and prawns with a stupid sign if you want more. The desserts were in teeny plastic shot glasses and all tasted sickly sweet and bland at the same time. Not a buffett that either your tastebuds or wallet will enjoy. Stick to the Bellagio for the best meat selection etc or the Mirage is nearly as good and cheaper...

Cafe Lago w/discount - VegasOutsider (03/27/2009) - 3 out of 5 stars
Joined casino players club and got $20 sign-up certificate to Cafe Lago. Since we were at Caesars and hungry, ate there. Not a lot of selection but food was well prepared. Dessert bar was decent. Crab legs were a bit slim but sushi was good. Good for the $7 we paid, a rip-off at $27. Get the coupon or go elsewhere.

Cafe Lago Buffet - Diamonddog (02/09/2009) - 1 out of 5 stars
Quite simply, the worst meal I've ever had in Vegas. Yep, worse than those other buffets we all hear about - this place was the pits. We ate there because we had a $25 food credit - this pulled the price down (for two adults & 2 children) to about the same as Harrah's across the road. Take my advice - forget the food credit, or spend it elsewhere in Caesars, because (even with the credit) Harrah's buffet knocks seven shades of s**t out of this one!! Awgful - incredibly long queue to get in, appalling 'service', and a selection that ran the gamut from A to B. Just. Avoid at all costs.

Worst Buffet Ever at Ceasars Cafe Lago - liljeneral (12/16/2008) - 1 out of 5 stars
Price is outrageous for barely any variety at all. The food they did have wasn't very good. We were hungry an hour later. Never again will we eat at Ceasars Cafe Lago.

Buffet - Blittle (10/10/2008) - 1 out of 5 stars
Not very impressed. Very limited selection, service was marginal at best. Save a few bucks and go across the street to the Flamingo. Much better selection.

5 Stars (Not!) - wbixby (10/06/2008) - 1 out of 5 stars
My spouse and I tried the Ceasar's buffet in July 08. Having tried most of the other popular buffets we thought we would give it a try. A real disappointment. Limited selection and marginal quality. Avoid this one. Cross the street to Bellagio. It's much better.

Pathetic - jfharmon (04/05/2008) - 1 out of 5 stars
We had early lunch at Cafe Lago in March of '08. What a mistake. I should have asked to walk through and look first. I wouldn't eat there again if they comped it. The selection was almost non-existent. The service was polite but it has to be the saddest buffet I've seen in any Hotel.
