    I just remembered I did not go into the full detail here in my trip report. I love this buffet. I have not had it since my 2004 trip before I had it on Monday night. I mentioned the buffet had a lot of seafood items and if you are allergic to shellfish the choices are limited. I also need to pass on that I had a slight allergic reaction to some spice in the Mongolian Beef. Back in 2012 at the Borgata buffet I almost had an ambulance called due to a reaction to something in the Asian section. I was better in a few hours. I was not sure what it was though. However this past Monday at the Bellagio Buffet I had the same reaction to Mongolian Beef. There is some pepper in it that caused me some distress. I drank an entire glass of iced tea and just sat and waited. Luckily I just took one bite. I have some allergies not too many food related. I want to give out this information to help anyone else.

    This is a $52 buffet-we had a buy one get one. I do not want to see anyone else spend money here they wish they spent elsewhere.

    Andy, There are many THOUSANDS of people who eat at the Bellagio buffet each week, and safe to say, there is no rush of people getting sick at the buffet. There are DOZENS of trip reports here on this very board with trips to the Bellagio buffet, and NONE of them have written about the food sickness experience that you have experienced. You seem to admit that you have some food allergies "not too many", and possibly an allergy to an Asian pepper. I don't think your "warning" to people, about a possible issue here is going to help anyone, unless they have your same allergy. Sorry to hear that you had this reaction. My suggestion would be to avoid Asian food at all buffets.

    I am sure people appreciate you are trying to help. But, this post really does not help anyone. Heck, not sure if it even helps you since the issues appear to be unknown.

    Glad you are okay though.

    OP glad you are ok, but my advice, if you have any food allergy, even a question of one, I would avoid ANY buffet, maybe change the title, so it is not misleading to the Bellagio specifically.

    I can appreciate your concern and willingness to help the rest of us...and to that you should not be chided as above. But as a healthcare practitioner, I would tell any of my patients with food allergy to not eat at any buffet.

    You should see your healthcare professional and consider allergen testing so you don't get into more trouble somewhere else down the line.

    The only warning of value that can be mentioned about the B buffet is the massive lines. We were there for 9 days 4/1-4/9 and the breakfast lines at 9 am were very long--- well beyond the doors that the casino help use and the dinner lines around 7;30pm stretched to the corner near the elevators. In all the years I have been there, I have not seen them that long.

    To the OP. It sounds like you have some form of a food allergy, get Dr. tested. You might want to ask your doctor to prescribe an EPI pen. I have a slight allergy to shrimp/shell fish. As a precaution I carry an EPI pen.

    It's actually not helpful to warn people about an allergy if it sounds like you yourself are not fully aware of your allergies. You ought to see an allergist and in the future ask ahead of time what dishes are prepared with them.
