Some people are loving this new location (part of Marriott Hotels, opened on December 15, 2010 – located south of the unique Bellagio) in terms of how modern and fabulous it all is. There are some fantastic aspects to it (in which it stands out, read below), but, summarizing what we will say below, we cannot say that it replaced Bellagio, Palazzo or Encore, especially in terms of food and accommodation.
Wicked Spoon: Everyone seems to agree that the atmosphere and decor, so new and modern, are great. It is comfortable and the presentation of food is also very good.
If you expect to stack mountains of food on your plate, you will be disappointed, because here all items are served on a very small plate that, in turn, will have to be placed on your own plate; it means that you will make many trips to the stations to feel full! It is not a bad aspect in our opinion, it can be annoying if you like a dish, but it avoids the gluttony (and waste) that you notice in some places. For now, the formations are very small or non-existent, but if that changes, the ‘tiny plate’ aspect will become uncomfortable.
A very positive aspect of this new place is that it offers a wide variety of dishes qq online, some trying to be different from the norm. Another may be that, if you like alcohol, the weekend brunch ($ 35 if you include alcohol) offers unlimited bloody mimosas in the bar section (like many others) offer unlimited alcohol at Sunday brunch, a one way or another).
The service seems to be excellent in all aspects, without having to wait for a refuel and most servers working as a team and not as individuals.
The sushi section is surprisingly better than any average buffet, freshly prepared in front of you, although, in our opinion, it is still not as good as Todai’s.
You will have to pay an extra (15 dollars) for the legs of the king crab, in order to opt for the common food. There is a lot of meat for meat lovers and an adequate variety of alternatives for those who don’t like meat and enough variety in the cooked vegetables department; variety and choice will not disappoint you. However, there are mixed feelings and thoughts about the quality and taste of each dish. Most visitors seem to agree that it won’t be a culinary experience if you expect chef-quality cooked food. Bellagio is still, in our opinion, the only option if you like high quality food and excellently cooked dishes.
A highly negative aspect of this buffet (especially if you are a tourist and not a local) is the fact that they impose a two-hour break between lunch and dinner, unlike the rollover offered in high quality buffets like Bellagio and even buffets good quality, as wishes.
Finally, many people complained that food labeling is scarce.
