1. Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
An elegant and luxuriously decorated restaurant, Wicked Spoon is my ultimate favorite buffet in Vegas. Items are served in reasonable portion sizes with many options served within individual metal saucepans or mini plates. Try food from across the world at the best quality you will find on the strip.
An impressive array of seafood is available at Wicked Spoon, the buffet at The Cosmopolitan and the varied selection is fantastic.
A highlight for me has to be the dessert section with an ice cream bar, a mini bakery area, and some incredible cakes and chocolate delights. There is definitely a dessert for everyone in this Las Vegas buffet.
Price – Weekday dinners cost $42 whilst weekend dinner costs $49 and weekend brunch costs $36 per person. Daily brunch will only cost you $28. Bottomless drinks packages cost $17 but come with a 2-hour limit from the time of purchase.

The elaborately decorated and edible dessert cases are a showcase of this buffet whilst the food itself offers similar dishes to other buffets as well as the unusual dish you may have never tried or heard of.

Creative Travel Rating: 8/10 (A great value buffet with a good variety of dishes).
3. Cravings at The Mirage
With 11 food stations with some amazing food, Cravings is another one of the best buffets of Las Vegas. The Asian food dishes taste authentic and all food is made with top-quality ingredients. Unlike most other buffets, the Italian section offers more than just pizza; with some near-perfect ravioli and pasta choices.
With unlimited drinks included in your package and prices being lower than most, personally, I think this is one of the best value buffets in Las Vegas.

Creative Travel Rating: 6/10 (Amazing food but a bit pricey compared to other buffets of a similar standard).
5. The Buffet at Bellagio
In keeping with the Italian-themed hotel, the decor reflects an Italian village town complete with detailed artwork. As another one of the best buffets in Las Vegas, the buffet is known for its unusual salads and variety of seafood as well as some unique desserts.
The food options aren’t as expansive as other buffets nor is the seating area; meaning the buffet can get busy in the evenings. However, the salad bar is a great choice for those healthy eaters out there.
Prices – Breakfast costs $24.99, lunch costs $27.99 and dinner costs $38.99. Weekend Brunch costs $33.99 whilst the Unlimited Champagne Brunch costs just $48.99!

Creative Travel Rating: 7/10 (Dishes aren’t as varied but the quality of food is great and prices are lower than many of its competitors).
6. Studio B Buffet at The Mirage
Softly lit, the Studio B Buffet offers a relaxed experience with an expansive collection of food offered, often prepared in front of you. The Japanese and Thai sections are particularly delicious, made even better by the all-you-can-drink wines and beers.
Calum particularly enjoyed the build-your-own nachos and taco stand whilst I am all about their amazing calzones; the diversity of the buffet options makes this one of the best buffets in Las Vegas.
Prices – Breakfast costs $24.99 (including complimentary Bloody Mary bar, champagne, mimosas, beer and wine) whilst lunch starts at $17.99 and dinner costs $24.99. The popular Prime Rib Brunch costs $24.99 and the amazing Seafood Buffet costs $41.99.

7. The Buffet at Aria
The buffet itself isn’t that new but it is a new buffet featured in this post! We pride ourselves on keeping you up to date with the best options available and this excessive and delicious buffet had to be mentioned.
This buffet prides itself on its authentic Tandoor Oven offering the best naan bread in town, alongside its fresh seafood selection. The gourmet carvery station is a favorite of mine with an incredible variety of high-quality meat. This buffet really does include food from around the world, more so than any other. Sample the Latin dishes for something new and feast on Indian cuisine.

Creative Travel Rating: 10/10 (This is a modern and affordable buffet with so many fantastic options! You will find something you LOVE here, guaranteed!)
8. Paris Le Village Buffet at Paris Las Vegas
Of course, this buffet is decorated like a French Village with various food stations themed around different provinces of France. Here you will eat your traditional buffet food with a French twist, my favorite being the made-to-order crepe station.
The restaurant area is a little smaller than others meaning it can get chaotic during dinner periods and personally I find that the food is hit or miss, some dishes can be delicious whilst others are a bit bland.
- Truffle macaroni and cheese
- Prime rib
- Snow crab legs

9. Sterling Brunch at Bally’s

Tips for visiting the Las Vegas buffets
- Use Groupon or Living Social to find some discount deals on the buffets before you arrive.
- Check the hotel’s loyalty program – sometimes they offer free or discounted buffets if you sign up.
- Ask the hotel you are staying at if they have any discounts for guests.
- Get a 24-hour access pass to enjoy breakfast, lunch dinner, and breakfast the next day! Or time it so you can have a late dinner, breakfast, lunch, and early dinner the next day! The Caesars Entertainment 24-hour pass can be used at the buffets in Harrah’s Paris, Rio, Caesars, Planet Hollywood, and Flamingo; we highly recommend it!
- Go early for Brunch and late for dinner – Queues at buffets can be long. Many visitors will head to brunch later on, so arrive early to beat the queues. When heading to dinner, you can also get a line pass from the hotel reception, especially if you are staying in the hotel.
- Cheap dinner – This tip only works for buffets that stay open all day. But if you head to the restaurant at the end of lunchtime, you can stick around for the dinner items to come out. These are often more varied and sometimes of better quality, meaning you have paid for the cheaper lunch option but enjoyed the dinner meal.
- Etiquette – A few things to remember whilst heading to a buffet in Vegas – don’t eat in line, don’t touch food with your hands while in the buffet line, always take a fresh plate, and always leave a tip!
- Comp buffets – Getting a free buffet at a hotel is easier than you may think. Whether it is singing up to a player’s card, reward card, or listening to a timeshare presentation; ask your hotel to see if there are any options for comped buffets.
- Boarding Pass Players Club – This is a club that you can sign up for for free and save money on the breakfast income of the Stations Casinos. This includes Green Valley, Aliante Station, Red Rock, Texas Station, Palace Station, Santa Fe, Boulder Station, and Sunset Station.
- Take small samples – These buffets offer a massive variety of food and you will want to try a bit of everything. Don’t fill up on large portions of anything and avoid things like bread, pizza, or pasta. Also, make sure to save room for dessert!
- Wear comfortable pants – Do not underestimate how full you will feel after. Wear comfortable clothes (think stretchy pants or flown dresses) and do not plan a busy night after your dinner.
- Holiday prices – If you plan on visiting on the 4th of July, Mother’s Day, or the Super Bowl, expect to pay more.
- Reserve – If you are visiting as a group, make sure to reserve your table at least the day before.

Heading to Vegas? These apps and posts can help you make the most out of your trip:
- Vegaster – This app is super useful for booking reservations and getting good deals whilst visiting Las Vegas.
- Vegas.com – A thorough guide to all things Vegas. Always check the deals section to save money on shows, tours, and even hotel bookings.
- Las Vegas Pass – If you are in Vegas for a while and want to do more than visit casinos and hotels, this pass is a great option; particularly if you are visiting as a couple or family. You can save money on attractions but it is also a great motivation for you to move away from that relaxing pool or air-conditioned hotel room and see beyond the strip.
