We had tickets for the Penn and Teller show so we decided to try a restaurant at Rio. We experimented with Buzio's and considered the experiment a complete success. The swordfish, lobster, grouper and even the chicken were all excellent. Delicious food, presented attractively, served with care and paired with good wines and potent drinks. The prices were reasonable also. A good find.

We enjoyed Buzius for the first time in the Azores, Portugal and loved it! We were estatic when the one in Rio turned out to be as great as the first time overseas! The swordfish is our favorite and is prepared wonderfully everytime. And you couldn't ask for better service.

High noise level
I have eaten here twice and the food is great. The second time the restaurant was extremely noisy!!! I don't remember it being that way the first time around. I don't know if it's worth a return visit.

Brian was a great waiter....everyth
Brian was a great waiter....everything was timely but would have preferred a table not right at the front...we were there earlier than our reservation time so were happy to be seated as we were hungry...so hate to complain that a table not quite at the front would have been preferable but we did not complain at the time. Food was very good.

Excellent seafood dishes
Not much for seafood but I always come back to try something on their seafood menu. Never been disappointed.

Great Seafood and Cocktails!
We frequent Buzzio's each time we visit Las Vegas because we can count on fresh, tasty seafood and good service. A great selections of appetizers, including clams casino ( my favorite), shrimp cocktail, jumob luimp crab cocktial and seafood chowder all are wonderful! The swordfish was cooked perfectly for my wife; I enjoyed the Spaghetti and Lobster special. The bartender makes a great Bloody Mary and Manhattan-try one!

Seven us closed the restaurant with a late-night celebration dinner after a 50th anniversary renewal of wedding vows (with Elvis officiating).
The staff got into our mood and were patient and congratulatory, even though our dinner took us more than half an hour past closing time. We even got a complimentary dessert plate from our server with some to-die-for cake and key lime tart. Food was great, service was friendly, wine was good and reasonably priced.

Some good, some bad
I ordered the cold seafood platter and the huge shrimp, four already-slit thick part of crab legs and four oysters were very good. Unfortunately, the lobster meat was unrecognizable - frozen and tough.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This will now be my "go to" place for seafood in Vegas. The food was great! I recommend the cold seafood appetizer and the king crab legs.

Reliable fresh fish
Bread was very good. For first course my wife had the shrimp cocktail and I had raw oyster both of which were very fresh and tasty. For main course we shared macadamia crusted halibut which was very fresh and well prepared. Nothing fancy. Ordinary presentation buys very good meal. The maitre d was very professional and attentive but there was a hostess who we thought was totally out of place. She had a sour face, did not smile and did not give a good first impression as we entered for dinner.

Had the Clams & Linguini, which is one of my favorites. It was delicious! Lump Crab cocktail for an app was a huge portion/great value for a Vegas restaurant.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We made reservation for dinner
We made reservation for dinner before the Penn & Teller show. My husband had the grouper oscar - loved it! I had the linguini with clams - OMG -- I had more clams than linguini - it was awesome!! I have never seen this dish with so many clams -- that's the way it should be done. If you LOVE clams, I highly recommend this dish!! Restaurant staff were courteous, friendly. Great spur of the moment choice for us.

Outstanding Menu and Service
This was our first time to Buzios and it was absolutely delicious. We shared a 4lb. Live Maine Lobster and it was prepared perfectly. It was succulent. We also had a shrimp cocktail and lump crab meat cocktail. The shrimp while large were not as tasty as I thought they would be but they were good. Though one was not de-veined and so I sent it back. The kind waiter brought us two instead that were freshly cleaned. The sides need a little refining...the garlic mashed potatoes were ok....but nothing to write home about and the glazed carrots needed to be cooked more. However, the main courses were delectable and the menu extensive. We liked the nautical theme and the ambiance. Best parts were the food and the server was fantastic!

Our first time
We had 3 different dinners the nights we were there and this by far was the best dinner we had. The Service was outstanding the food was outstanding. It's too bad this restaurant isn't located on top of Rio to go with the awesome Scenic View.

BRILLIANT FOOD AND SERVICE
The service was just enough, very attentive and not overwhelming ! The host lets us know if we had tickets to the P&T show, we got 25% off our dinner! Yay! The seafood was sweet and distinctive. Our waitress matched our tone and her timing was perfect.
The dessert was a bit too sweet & a little pedestrian. Wish more restaurants would offer litte bit sized deserts.
Over all, great great great!

Fine Dining at its Best
We visited Buzios September 14, 2013 and it was absolutely wonderful. I had the jumbo crab cakes with baked potato and it was so delicious. I loved it. My fiancé had oyster on the half shell appetizer, Very fresh! A 6 oz Filet steak with lobster tail, mashed potatoes and green beans. The food was just delicious. Everything was excellently prepared The ambiance was very nice, open and inviting. Our servers were David and Roger, whom we found to be friendly and polite. Very good servers.
We are planning another trip to Vegas and we definitely are going to come back to visit Buzios. Keep up the good job. You are all great...

Great Food and Excellent Service
Our Server Scott was EXCELLENT!! Very attentive and friendly. He is always on top of everything. The food is always consistent. We miss the Ratatouille but are happy to order the Macaroni and Cheese that they bake fresh. Everything is fresh.

Amazing friendly service... Sit at the bar to get the great feel of the place, Ahi tuna, amazing, popcorn shrimp, and grrrreat Caesar salad. Will be going again... Often!

My friend and I discovered Buzios on our last night in Vegas. It's a great place to eat. We ate early, so the restaurant wasn't crowded when we came, but was certainly filling up when we left. The food was great from my Lobster Bisque to the last morsel of my scallops. Many entrees come with two sides: my green beans were very perfectlyt prepared and tasted fresh. My mac and cheese was creamy and zesty. We were so full that we couldn't attempt dessert.
Our server was most pleasant and offered advice when asked. Our water glasses were kept full and plates were whisked away when we were done.
I feel that we found really good seafood out in the middle of a desert! We will probably come back when we're in Vegas again.

Neither the décor nor the
Neither the décor nor the menu has undergone much change in the seven years since our last visit. My wife ordered the pecan crusted halibut which came with green beans and Yukon gold mashed potatoes. My nourishment came in the form of miso glazed Chilean sea bass, sweet potato fries and green beans. Both pieces of fish were desirably moist and delicious. Service was pretty good.

Seafood in Vegas
Mussels were wonderful.
Tilapia encrusted in parmacian cheese was tasty.
A little noisy, but tolerable.
Service was excellent.

Ambience could do with some updating but the food which is what we were there for was Excellent. Hubby had the Red Snapper Oscar and I had the Scollops and both too full for dessert.

Every time we come in Vegas we have dinner at Buzio's. All seafood is really good, and choppino is perfect in my opinion
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner and server was great. Ambiance was one of a coffee shop though. We were under the impression it was more of an intimate restaurant rather than casual. Our mistake though after reading dress code it was casual. Would of enjoyed a nice view of the beautiful pool lit up at night rather than a dark view. Overall a 10 though for our waiters service. He was very on top of serving.

Great evening out
We were seated upon arrival. Service was excellent, food delivered very fast, and was delicious.

I have had the bouaiibaisse every time i am in LV. It appears pricey but it is worth the money. A fantastic meal if you like seafood, best I have ever had
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is my 4th time @ Buzios & each time I have a wonderful experience. It was superb from beginning to the end. I have ordered, chicken, steak & seafood and all of the selections was made with lots of love. The food is fresh, high quality, especially the seafood, omg! the taste is awesome, and the service is perfect.
