    Just wanting to get a little feedback. I've been to the buffet at Caesars Palace but how does it compare to the Cosmo or Bellagio? I'm also considering the Aria based on what I see on the board.

    Caesars slightly better than Cosmo and MUCH better than Bellagio..

    Haven't been to Cosmo yet either, but agree that Caesar's blows away Bellagio.

    IMO, Cosmo blows the CP buffet away. Actually, I think Wicked Spoon is the best buffet in Vegas. Wynn is second best. After that, CP, Bellagio, Aria are on the next tier

    I do not eat at it often because there are so many better dining options at Aria. But I do place their buffet at the bottom of the second tier

    Very underwhelmed by the buffet at Aria.

    Good to know. Thanks everyone. Looks like I might just go back to Caesars again unless I decide to try Wicked Spoon.

    Bellagio is definitely the swankyest buffet on the strip. Aria is also good. You get the small feel of fine dining at Aria.

    I have not had a Buffet in Vegas in a very long time I did do the Caesar's Bacchanal Buffet when it first open but have not been back. I have not tried Bellagio, Wynn or Wicked Spoon. I did have the Country Club Brunch at Wynn. That was good. I was going to do either Sterling Brunch or Wynn Country Club.

    So, Question is Should I try one of the Buffets? If so which one? I did go look at the Wynn and Caesar's Bacchanal buffet when I was in Vegas this year and I didn't see anything that would make me want to eat there. Guess I'm too picky. LOL this coming from a guy eating chick fil a and Whataburger.

    aria has a bottomless beverage for $12 I believe... Last time I was there all I had was sangria and I took the waitress awhile to bring the drinks because she has to go walk to the nearest bar to get the drinks... But the sangria was worth the wait

    I like CP for Breakfast/lunch and Wicked spoon for dinner. I rank Wynn third, hoping the remodel brings some new options.
    I still like Bellagio for the King Crab at dinner which easily makes it worth it. Their $12 unlimited margaritas with fresh sour mix is a great deal as well.

    You will be happy with the Wicked Spoon. Everything is on individual plates, I like that. Been there several times. Breakfast buffet has the best deal re: $, with enough "lunch/dinner" foods to keep you happy as well

    Bacchanal the best

    We have been to all of these buffets several times each and would rate them:
    1. Bacchanal
    2. Wicked spoon
    3. Bellagio
    4. Aria

    Of the high dollar buffets, I think Wicked Spoon and Bacchanal are in a class of their own. I've done the Aria buffet twice, and have been underwhelmed both times.

    Understandablly each person gives very different opinion about which buffet is better than the others.
    It would be interesting to hear what the real hard-core buffeters have to say.
    I only eat at buffets, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    I can count I have eaten close to (if not more) 80 buffets in Vegas last year, and almost every year for the past XX years!
    I am sure many people even have more buffets than I have.

    1. Sterling Brunch
    2. Jazz Brunch
    3. Varanda
    4. BuddyV's

    All of these are on Sunday. Anymore they are the only ones I like. I have never been to Cosmo but Bacchanal was gross the last few visits and Bellagio is nothing special.
