LV Best Buffets - please don't shoot daggers!

A group of us is planning a week in Vegas/GCNP.
The majority would want to do buffets most nights, but a couple of us have convinced them not to. A minority of us are foodies and good cooks/bakers. goes the buffet question. We are looking to do buffets 2 nights for supper, 1 for Brunch possibly if we have to. All of them get mixed reviews and there is really not any info/rating on them from foodies like on this website. We want more than standart North American ribs, chicken, etc and LOVE fish, seafood and mediterranean food but would also like some meat selections for the carnivores.

We have narrowed our list to:
We are looking for your recs along with what to eat at your fave/best buffet.

  1. I worked in Vegas November through December of last year with a crew of 7 people I was responsible for feeding.
    We did every buffet in town as it was a good way to keep everyone happy. I am a foodie and though at times would pay for thier meals and then sneak away to LOS or some place on my own dime, I did enjoy a few of the Buffets more than the rest.

    The Wynn had the most upscale selection and good quality - when we were there they had Wild game and a good seafood selection. Now this was during the holiday season so I dont know if it was seasonal or not. Bellagio was good as well. Mandalay bay had the best quality crab legs and shrimp IMO.

    I did not like The Mirage or MGM. The Rio was really crowded and though it had a good selection it was not as good as it was when I used to live in Vegas.

    My 2 cents

      Thanks. I read reviews that the Wynn has really gone downhill in months, but am not sure.

        Wynn and Bellagio are likely to make your crowd happy. Both have good selection of cuisines apart from average American fare and yet still have enough average American fare to make a corn fed carnivore happy.

        I personally tend to graze at the buffets. 3-4 hours of tiny bites and lots of people watching make me a very happy camper.

      2. Off Strip, No Crab legs But best for the $ $12.99 Lunch, $18.99 dinner The Red Rock

        Red Rock Casino Resort Spa
        11011 Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV

        1. If you don't mind going off the strip a little bit, the Rio World Buffet has been the best one I've been to.

          1. This is our plan for eight days
            Buffets: Bellagio, Wynn, Spice Market, Le Village (will eliminate one probably)
            Restos for now: La Creperie, Tintoretto, Enoteca San Marco and Bouchon

            1. Finally tried the buffett at Paris and was NOT impressed with one exception....custome made crepe with apples and caramel topping was outstanding. Believe it or not the brunch buffett at Harrah's was OUTSTANDING!!!

                Krugs - They present it as provinvial French food stations. Different stations offer different french types of cuisine. That is the only reason they were interested. Is it not like that?
