We go to vegas regularly and were just there for New Years. Buffet prices jump at holidays and brunches are always more dinero. Bellagio has always been our favorite but recently was not so great, always love that they have Kobe Beef, roast venison, quail, roast duck, dazzeling desserts this time most dishes were dry and the dinning room itself was in need of redecorating (in my industry we call it "tired")and cleaning. They were have some sort of staff sqabble and the service stunk. Needless to say we were disappointed as it was a holiday and a C note for two. Mandalay was an excellent buffet and Treasure Island has an inexpensive but quite good breakfast buffet. Downtown has the Golden Nugget and as hotels go it was fabulous..love, love, love the pool. Rates are good and service was superb. Have never eaten at the Paris Buffet as the line is usually better than an hour wait for a table, Ballys wait is also long we have had both dinner and brunch, both were very good also both places seem to be a magnet for people with small children.
