    The wife and I have been before and plan to do it again in October. In my opinion it is definitely worth the $85. They do serve a higher quality champagne so you may like it, if not, dilute it down to mimosas.

    Read about the steakhouse closing on this message board. We've never been there so plan to try it our upcoming Labor day trip. Looking forward to the dinner but was wondering what is the Sterling Brunch mentioned? Besides champaigne, is it a buffet?

    Yes it is.

    I've always said if I have a good night of gambling I'd like to set some money aside to do this once. The last few trips for me have been during the week so I haven't even had an opportunity to try it.

    I and my youngest son really enjoyed the Sterling Brunch in July. I am all about frugal but this was worth it. Large Lobster tails and filet mignon, cavier, rack of lamb that was superior to the Bellagio's.
    The tails lose something because they are roasted. I can't eat as much as I used to. If I was younger it would be a every other trip feast.

    The Sterling Brunch is definitely worth the money.

    Its worth it IMO if you enjoy champagne...they serve rather expensive bubbly. For the food alone, although quite wonderful, is a bit harder to justify the price tag. We did really enjoy our time there, liked the small and cozy restaurant and more personalized service.

    My wife and I have been to the Sterling Brunch on two of our visits and it's been a highlight of our trip (except for the few hours post-buffet induced coma that my wife falls into because of her champagne hydration program). We're returning in November and I contacted Bally's and was told that the Sterling Brunch will still be operating while we're there. Sounds like your October visit should be fine...have a great time!!!

    Sorry to hear Bally's Steakhouse in closing. It is a shame that instead of dumping a bunch of capital into the old Barbary Coast that they could not spruce up Bally's. I guess I'm an old codger, but when I first started coming to Vegas in the mid-1980s, Ballys and CP were the cream of the crop. It is a shame that some traditions such as Bally's Steakhouse have to be killed off. It would be better I think if they made an effort to market the steakhouse (however Bally's patrons are more down market than they once were).

    I'm going to Vegas October 26th and really want to try the Sterling Brunch on the 27th. The reviews are glowing and it sounds fantastic. Now I just need to convince my friends it's worth it. The champagne alone is worth it!

    Maybe you haven't noticed but they are sprucing up Bally's. New rooms, the mall is refreshed and a plan to rework the current garden space is on the table. The only thing I haven't seen is a plan to update the casino. When we went to the Sterling Brunch, the servers basically told us that the customers that used to patronize the steakhouse and Bally's as a whole is aging and and not really coming to Vegas like they used to and they feel pressure to chase the youngsters even though they don't always enjoy serving them. Unfortunately, Old Vegas and Rat Pack charm is lost on the younger set. I guess they don't understand how much fun Frank, Dean, Sammy and the rest used to have. What I've seen so far of the new concept is okay although I am disappointed to see yet another spinoff of a NYC restaurant coming to town. My point is that this is what the Vegas hotels feel what they need to do to survive. But what they are doing at Bally's so far doesn't make me feel excluded the way some other hotel revamps have.

    Absolutely convince your friends to go. I realize that this is a brunch, but if you think of it in the context of what you get for the money it's well worth going. Try going out to dinner in a nice restaurant and having unlimited real champagne (not sparkling wine), lobster, lamb, cavier and many more selections and a very nice desert assortment and I have to imagine it would cost three times as much.

    This buffet is worth every penny. If you dream of food like I do (everyone does, right) you will linger on this meal for a while. The lobster bisque is the best I have ever had IN MY LIFE. I remember that champagne coma.
