    Looking for a brunch place knowing early Sunday arrival in Vegas would not yield early room availability. Found this bistro on Open Table & decided to give it a shot. What a pleasant surprise! Don't get there too early before reservation because this bistro is really a "hole" in Caesar's wall, but what a hole. The food was exceptional! Will be back to try other menu selections. As is often the case in Vegas, venues quickly come & go. Based on the "customer traffic" at this bistro, I hope they are one of the stays.

    Myself and two other ladies met for lunch here. It was the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch, quiet enough for visiting but lively enough to be fun. The atmosphere was elegant without being stuffy. The food was lovely and delicious and the service was good. We all thought it was the perfect choice for our get together. The staff did not make us feel rushed and we stayed for 3 hours.

    This was my first breakfast in vegas and it was a last minute decision - I had a little trouble finding Payard's as the map location was after the forum shoppes. I had called to find out where it was and a very kind helpful voice told me it was inside Caesars palace and gave me more specifics. That was a pretty consistent theme (kind, helpful, responsive) for the rest of the meal. I ordered the fruit bowl and the chocolate brioche French toast and juice. Everything was wonderful - it was a great experience with great food! I'd go back again without hesitation.

    Tucked away in the heart of Caesar's Palace is a fantastic little place that has some incredible breakfast food! Being a very small bistro with limited seating, you should definitely call ahead. Limited seating is a welcome change to the often crowded and thunderous restaurants on the strip. My wife and I make a point of stopping here anytime we make our way to Las Vegas. Along with the intimate dining area - you get a front row seat to watch the chef build the sumptuous crepes. They're not on the main menu - you need to ask for the crepe menu. Be sure that you do, because these crepes are to die for!

    Breakfast was amazing. Tiny full service restaurant next to larger counter service. Server was rude and abrupt but got the job done. Croque Madame was to die for as well as continental breakfast with fresh fruit and 2 enormous pastries. If same food is available at counter service, go there instead!

    Booked ahead after reading about Payard's amazing patisserie and we were not disappointed. The cafe is delightfully cute and stylish, we were seated immediately and the service was excellent. Our table had a standard American breakfast, Lobster Eggs Benedict and a Croque Madame.....all beautifully prepared, plated and absolutely delicious.

    I was looking forward to trying this restaurant for breakfast. I had previously tried it when they still serve dinner. I ordered an egg dish and it was way overcooked. The eggs were hard and tasteless. Service wasn't much better. I had to flag down a server every time I needed a coffee refill. Definitely won't be going back.

    While staying at Caesar's, I wanted to meet a friend for breakfast and found Payard to be a great choice. Good coffee and plenty of it while having well prepared omelet, perfect bacon and just a pleasant atmosphere. The staff is friendly and attentive and I only wish I had the time to come back for one of their nice lunch selections. I can comment that they have excellent gelato available as well.

    We had a group of 6 and everyone loved their meals. Lobster eggs Benedict was unreal (so much lobster!), mimosa was tasty and the coffee was good. Aside from the host, the service was excellent. I will definitely be going back anytime I'm in town. While a bit pricey, I found t relatively reasonable for the Strip, and you get a lot of high quality food for your dollar.

    My husband and I went for a late breakfast. I had the brioche French toast (with nutella and bananas and whipped cream and wonderful maple syrup) and he had the eggs/ham/potatoes. I though the food was very good, and the service was impeccable. I was a little surprised that they charge $5 for a cup of coffee (no prices for that item on their menu.. now I know why), but nevertheless, it was very good. I would go back, but probably only for a special occasion because I don't usually spend that much money on breakfast!

    Skip the buffets and steak-and-egg specials just once while in Las Vegas and treat yourself to a breakfast at this upscale bistro in Caesars Palace. Whether you choose the lobster eggs benedict on croissant, a tasty quiche or brioche French toast, you won't regret the indulgence. The service was wonderful, and you can't resist taking home something from the pastry bar.

    for breakfast/brunch. Amazing hollandaise on the eggs benedict. Chocolate French toast, berry French toast are also great. We have a salad: perfect complement. We also recommend omelette; baked tomato (comes with Croques Monsiuer/Madame - also great) or as side. We usually would give a 5 star rating, but this particular time, the berries were a bit more tart than sweet, underripe.

    This is a very small restaurant, so make reservations if you don't want to wait. The food is delicious and the service is very good. I would have rated the food higher were it not for a few minor issues with our meal (french toast was drowned in the overwhelming berry compote) and the croissants were not as good as I remembered from our first time there a few years ago. They also offer an express line for to-go orders - which is a nice option if you don't want a full breakfast.

    This is a hidden gem in that we had a bit of trouble finding it within massive Caesar's Palace, but the search was definitely worth it. Rodney, our server, took excellent care of us with great suggestions. We both chose to have the 3 course meal which allows you to select anything on the menu for each course. We both started with the cheese soufflé on Rodney's suggestion and it was light and full of flavor. My husband had the filet mignon, their specialty, and I had the lamb shank. Both entrees were perfectly cooked and more than enough to eat. Since they are also a bakery there were about 15 amazing desserts to choose from, the perfect end to an excellent meal. The wine was also reasonably priced. We will be back next time we are in Vegas.

    We chose this restaurant because we didn't want to go to a "high end stupidly expensive" restaurant in Caesar's Palace. We had never heard of it, no one recommended it, we just looked at the menu online and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful surprise. It is a small restaurant next to the larger pastry shop of the same name. I immediately liked the decor. The service (by Rodney) was so good I don't even know how to describe it. The assistant server (sorry don't know his name) was also excellent. I am not a red meat lover and usually don't order it in any restaurant, even a steakhouse. But Rodney's description of the Filet Mignon sounded very interesting. It was outstanding! I highly recommended this restaurant!

    Thanks for participating. That was the reason we chose to go there. It was very cool that a cocktail was included in your prix fix menu but they were a bit different being made with wines or champagne. Food was okay, I would like to eat the frisée salad again with poached egg but it is a bit of a hastle to get to the restaurant as a local for just a salad. Desserts were good as well but weren't over the top.

    Our group of 4 chose Payard on-line based on their menu and arrived to find a delightful, very personal experience. Each person was friendly and professional and assured that we were having a great experience. Our group had not seen each other for a long time and we were able to converse and socialize as if we were at home. We felt like we were their only customers. The food was excellent. We had a fish special that was very unique. The kitchen is in the center of the intimate sized room and you can see the chefs at work. The experience was wonderful and we will return.

    Lovely little restaurant tucked beside the bakery. Very convenient since we were staying in the Octavius tower of the hotel. It was my 1st time dinning here but I've visited the bakery many times. I had to try the Lobster Eggs Benedict, and it did not disappoint, it was so good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I will definitely be back.

    The sit-down portion of Payard within Ceasars is a small circular space that seats maybe 40 people, tops. So, first of all - make a reservation! (Thank you Open Table!) As for the service and food, it was all great. It seems like there may have been only one, maybe two servers, along with a bus boy but they were prompt to refill coffees and water. The food was delicious but portions were a bit smaller, compared to most restaurants. Not to say this is a bad thing because I left feeling the perfect level of full but not stuffed. I split the chocolate brioche french toast and the eggs Benedict and both were great. They use a fresh croissant in the Benedict. Overall, I'd definitely recommend a visit here for an affordable and delicious meal.
