    Horrible service. The "lobster" is a joke. Half a lobster and two bites of meat. The waiter we had was extremely obnoxious. Did not remove our dirty plates. Did not ask or offer anything. The man serving the lamb was extremely rude. Every employee working there other than the hostess looked like it was the worst day of their life. The only thing that was good (not excellent) was the lobster bisque. Bally's - this is not even close to how it use to be. Future diners - you would be better off going to Golden Corral. Shame

    We come from Los Angeles on Sundays and always looked forward to Sterling Buffet as a first stop.We were excited restaurant reopened this summer. WE WILL NOT BE BACK! What did you do??? So here goes .... The restaurant had a coffee shop feel and look. Food selections were so limited and food trays were empty. Less selections with good quality ok but Oysters were poor quality and lobsters and Prime Rib were dry but no worries, they weren't available anyway. Caviar was good but we could never find our server. Dessert station was pathetic. It looked like we were at Circus Circus. Seriously, nothing made to order!?? Bellagio is wayyyyy better for less than half the price and for $12.99, you get unlimited drinks. So sad and disappointed!

    We had an excellent experience with Tony and James being our servers. This was our second visit in the past two months and the food options, food quality and the incredible service remain hallmarks. We tried the lobster bisque, Caesar salad and lobster egg benedict for the first time and were wowed. The champagne flowed and was of excellent quality. Other dishes such as the rock shrimp and chive frittata, lobster tail, grilled filet mignon and the breaded pudding French toast with caramelized bananas were amazing. The dining area is larger and much better laid out than the old Sterling Brunch before BLT Steak took over the area and the food and dessert options increased. We cannot recommend Sterling Brunch and its staff more highly.

    This was our second time at this brunch. Althought the choices were plentiful the quality was not there. $85.00 per person is a little expensive for the choices. The service seemed a little confused. I realize that they just re-opened but it was disappointing compared to the first time we were there. Maybe it will improve, but I'm not eoncinced it will.

    Although the items offered have been reduced since their remodel, quality is better, although it was already great! More items come out of the kitchen meaning they are fresher and not 'sitting' on the buffet line. Service impeccable as usual. Whenever we're in visit, i try to be sure we're here on a Sunday. NEWS ALERT, THEY ARE ALSO OFFERING BRUNCH ON SATURDAY. Not sure if this will last, though since not well known. Try it at least once, and you'll be convinced that this is the best!

    Our server (James) was great. Our glasses were never empty of champagne. We had a late seating (1:30), so some of the food seemed dried out for my tastes. The lobster tails were overbooked. I had a delicious lobster omelet. The cavier and filet seemed to be a hit with the rest of the group. The crab claws were a lot smaller than they used to be before the takeover. They shut everything down before we finished eating, so I wish we would have had an earlier reservation.

    The Sterling Brunch was truly one of the highlights of my recent trip to Vegas. My friends and I do not have a lot of money but we agreed to splurge on this brunch. Although the meal was pricy ($90/each) the endless champagne and quality food items were wonderful. Steak, lobster, crab, three types of eggs benedict and a dessert bar that was pretty enough to be photographed for a food magazine. Sergio took great care of us and we never felt rushed or overlooked. Do not miss this!

    We did the brunch 10 years ago at $50 a person - it was wonderful. Sunday, August 3, 2014 at 1:30 pm went back at $85 a person. My wife and I were seated quickly. Nobody, that's nobody, came to our table for over 10 minutes, check the videos if you have it. Finally, the head waiter came over and said Jim is your waiter and will be with you. He never came over for another 20 minutes. He waited on other tables beside us. Other waiters were servicing tables beside us. We finally got up and went to the buffet. $85 a person to be ignored?

    This is a high quality buffet, with excellent produce and we enjoyed the free flowing champagne. It is not the standard huge Vegas buffet, as it is more refined with some of the items ordered from the server and delivered fresh from the kitchen. Would recommend for those who enjoy fine food and champagne.

    To start, the food quality was a notch down from the previous Sterlings in the past. Disappointed to say the least. Champagne and popovers were amongst the top choices. Sad but true. However our server Javier was on top of our stay as he usually is. A+ Javier. Ambience reminds us of a modern day cafe. Noisy and open. Seems like the idea of changing with the times might have lost the elegance which once graced this brunch? We used to be happy to take our family and friends here whenever in town. But maybe "changing with the times (brunches), isn't such a bad idea? We'll have to see. I wonder what Elarrio would say?????

    The old Sterling Brunch was excellent, the "new" Sterling Brunch doesn't compare! Wait staff was excellent & attentive; that & the free Champagne didn't make up for the lack of food selection & quality. I raved to my companions about my experience 2 years ago & insisted we come. There is now only one lackluster buffet line offering what seemed to be re-heated or overcooked items and our reservations were at 10:00AM. Seafood wasn't up to Sterling standards either. Desserts were arranged on the bar at the front of the restaurant...certainly not many to choose from. What happened to all those buffet tables & selection the old brunch offered? The highlight was the lobster bisque & pop over bread. Disappointing. For the price, skip it.

    We tried the Sterling Brunch a few years ago prior to the remodeling. It was a nice surprise to see the remodeled restaurant which was beautiful. Our reservation was at 1:30pm. What disappointed us this time was the food quality. Everything looked like it had been out for a while and old. The lobster was tough and really dry on the outside from being out for a while. The Filet Mignon looked old and dry. The server was nice but was not attentive as he looked like he was doing end of shift duties. We definitely didn't feel the value was worth it compared to the last time we visited. It shouldn't matter whether we dine at the beginning of brunch or at last seating, the food and service should stay consistent especially when the price is $85.

    As a very special treat, took my niece, a Marine, to this fabulous buffet. She got to dress up like a girl and it was the perfect spot to be girly and waited upon. While the buffet is serve yourself, they had items that could be specially prepared, such as the lobster eggs Benedict. The whole buffet is a seafood lovers paradise and the filet mignon wasn't too shabby either. You are going to pay a dear price for the experience and food. The staff is upscale and at your service. Never was my champagne flute or coffee cup empty, nor my niece's glass of OJ. Completely worth it!! Will definitely partake of this experience again!

    Actually was planning to dine at a nearby restaurant. Originally, this brunch came to an end months back when the steakhouse that hosted the brunch was to be remodeled. Staff was unaware if the brunch would be back. This was very disappointing news for us as we all loved this brunch. So, we were elated that it was back. Food variety appears to be about the same (maybe less) than before. It is pricey but when you compare the quality of the food and free flowing Perrier Jouet against the average price at equivalent restaurants, it is a steal. $85 for Harrah's rewards member ($90 otherwise). Now for the food, they have lobster, King crab, filet mignon, prime rib, salmon, etc.

    If anyone has been to the previous Sterling Brunch, they will find this disappointing. The ambience is not what one would expect or desire for the cost. Though the food was excellence, there was little variety. Very noisy. There should also be some kind of dress code. I am sorry to say that it appears that Ballys has made a serious mistake in changing what they had, which was an excellent venue for upscale dining.

    Free-flowing Perrier-Jouet, caviar with blini and condiments, a tower of sashimi-grade tuna, filet mignon, smoked salmon and a dessert station that would make Willy Wonka kick Mike TeeVee in the holster: This is the place to be for an elegant, chill-paced brunch experience, the very antithesis of the stereotypical Las Vegas brunch wherein every new steam tray is greeted by a Pamplona-style rush to chow down. Not here; a truly civilized experience---special thanks to our keeper, Sergio, and his assistant Edwin (hope I got that right, sir).

    This was a fantastic experience. The buffet items were flawless, crab three ways, fillet mignon, oysters, lobster, rack of lamb, prime rib etc. they even serve Yorkshire Pudding as the bread hot and covered with cheese, my goodness! Then there are the custom choices, caviar, lobster bisque, benedict every which way, it is overwhelming with the delectable offerings. The service from Sergio and Hugo was amazing nothing was too much trouble - they take your plates at the buffet and place them on your table so you have the freedom to add other choices if you need more in one walk through. The excellent Pierre Jouet champs. was refilled constantly. The desserts were a work of art. Our 10th anniversary in heaven! Dim the lights and eat!

    Food was wonderful! Service was terrible. We needed utinsels to crack the crab legs and the two waiters we asked to bring them never did. We finally got one of the cooks to give us the tools we needed. We had to ask for drinks and usually the waiter(s) forgot to bring it. We would have to ask at least three times before the champage and juice was delivered. They were slow to take away the dirty plates. We wound up putting our dirty dishes on an empty table next to us.

    We arrived 35 minutes early for our reservation and were still seated right away. With only two weeks left before the Sterling Brunch closes, we were happy to find that the food and service qualities were still up at their usual high standards. The Brunch closes on February 2, 2014 so the restaurant can change, and will hopefully return when the steak house reopens in mid-May.

    Took my daughter there on her 21st birthday.she said that of all the things we did on our trip to Vegas, this was the highlight and sh usually does not like buffets. The Sea bass was the best I ever had. The lobster bisque and the lobster ravioli were also fantastic. My daughter said she would come back just for the lobster bisque. It is very exspensive but worth it for a special occasion.

    My husband and I have been to this brunch several times before and enjoyed it HOWEVER WE WILL NEVER return again. The service was just abusive we had to ask for coffee several times as our server was too busy waiting hand and foot on just ONE of his 10 tables. The lobster was tuff even when made freash and the only way to get bread was for the waiter. Who was absent to bring it. Needless to say NEVER got any bread. The fruit that was normally fresh and sweet was bruised and bitter. When my husband had to go to the front desk to ask for our check they did NOTHING to resolve the problem. I realize this is a BRUNCH. But. For 200.00 dollars I expect CUSTOMER SERVICE. At least some warm coffee. We will never return.

    The Sterling Brunch was recommended by a family member several times and since we were in Vegas celebrating the Holidays and a simpler life (semi-retirement), we thought it would be a good way to start 2014. My family member and Sterling did not disappoint! Everything was over the top! From the décor, appearance and attentiveness of staff, to the wonderful presentation of the exquisite palate pleasing food and drink. It was like going on a fine food vacation!

    I love seafood, so this is a great place for me to get as much as seafood as I can. I started with 3 lobster tails. They are large but very very salty. My goal was eating 8 but I just cannot go on after 6... Champaign is good but I had asked them to refill a few times It's bunch but you have to ask for coffee. It's not ready available for you or offer to you, so you have to ask for it. Oysters were not too great, very small and hard to get the meat off. Sushimi is also ok. You really have to be a lobster lover and don't mind salty food to enjoy this place I had prime rib too and it is not too bad. I think once is enough for me I will not go back.
