The Buffet at Bellagio Review – Take a Look Inside

Key Points:

  • While Bellagio’s buffet is a top-tier option, it ranks behind Bacchanal at Caesars, Wicked Spoon at Cosmopolitan, and The Buffet at Wynn.
  • That being said, the food was great and I particularly enjoyed the Bacon Mac & Cheese, Mini Gyro, Prime Rib, and Rotisserie Chicken.
  • At the $49.99 I paid, I think there’s value here for big eaters although I slightly prefer the similarly priced buffets at Caesars, Wynn, and Cosmopolitan to this one.

As a fan of high-end buffets in Las Vegas, The Buffet at Bellagio has been on my to-do list for some time. Although I prefer buffet dining at dinner, I was in the neighborhood while Bellagio’s brunch service was up and running. Needing desperately to refuel after walking over 20,000 steps the previous day, I hopped in line.

As one of the more popular buffets in Vegas, the line to get in was somewhat substantial, extending all the way to the casino floor. While I was initially intimidated, things moved quickly and I was seated in 15-20 minutes.

Below, I’ll share my dining experience with plenty of pictures of what there is to eat!

I’d recommend checking Bellagio’s website for the most up-to-date pricing and hours before making the trip.

The Buffet at Bellagio Brunch Menu

As a brunch buffet, Bellagio offered both breakfast and lunch options.

On the breakfast side of the menu, pancakes, waffles, and french toast were all available. Uniquely, the buffet also cooks up an enormous pancake the size of a large pizza and cuts it into square pieces.

Watching the employee flip the oversized flapjack instantly reminded me of the movie “Uncle Buck” when Buck was making pancakes so large he needed a snow shovel to flip them. If you don’t understand the reference, you need to stop reading and watch the classic movie ASAP.

Other notable breakfast items included apple crepes, bagels, biscuits and gravy, fruit, yogurt, and chorizo & eggs.

The most popular breakfast food, however, was the live-action omelet station which offered an impressive selection of meat, veggies, and cheeses to be included in your creation.

On the lunch side of things, available menu items included shrimp, white mussels in garlic white wine sauce, clams, rotisserie chicken, pizza, Asian cuisine, and an impressive salad station.

While prime rib was both available and amazing, crab legs were not offered.

My three favorite items at Bellagio’s buffet were the prime rib, bacon mac & cheese, and the mini gyros (all of which are pictured below). Sitting just outside of my “top 3 items” was the rotisserie chicken.

As you’d expect from a high-end buffet, the dessert selection was also on point and deserving of the abundance of pictures we took, below.

Soda, juice, and milk are all offered at self-serve stations located around the buffet seating area.

Is The Buffet at Bellagio Worth the Money?

It’s tough to say. Was the brunch buffet good? Absolutely. Was the buffet extremely good? Man, I sure thought so. Is the buffet $49.99 good? It’s a close call.

Bellagio’s buffet is in the same price/quality league as other upper-echelon buffets like Wicked Spoon at Cosmopolitan, The Buffet at Wynn, and Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, although I would rank it 4th behind those three. Bellagio is good, but not the best option at that price in my opinion.

Another comparison that needs to be made considering the buffet’s price point is vs. traditional restaurants. You can easily score a high-quality and filling breakfast/lunch in Vegas for $50 or less.

Ultimately, I think there’s value here if you:

  • Plan to eat a LOT.
  • Plan to load up on higher-end options like the Prime Rib, Rotisserie Chicken, Shrimp, or custom created Omelets.
  • Are willing to pay for the ability to eat a diverse collection of high-quality food.

Like any buffet, you’re not going to get your money’s worth if you plan to nibble on bagels, cereal, and yogurt.

Personally, I went big and consumed an embarrassing amount of Prime Rib, Rotisserie Chicken, Gyros, and Bacon Mac & Cheese in addition to desserts and feel good about the value I received. While I may prefer other high-end buffet options, I’ll certainly make a return trip down the road.
