Super awesome! Worth it to spend a little extra to get my entire family of 10 to skip the crazy long-weekend-holiday line for 1pm lunch! And the bonus was we got an amazing VIP seafood tower! Freshest seafood I've had at the buffet! Needless to say my family is happy so I am happy too! Recommended!!
The food at the Bacchanal is seriously delicious, and the variety is incredible. Making the reservation through Open Table locks you in for the $98 VIP Experience, which might sound like a lot but is definitely worth it to avoid the 2-3 hour wait time otherwise required for walk-in dining. In addition to the reserved spot, you also have a (gigantic) seafood tower (all of the buffet seafood such as crab legs, shrimp, oysters, etc. PLUS lobster tails) and all-you-can-drink (wine, beer, sangria, champagne). It was a great experience. :)
It wasn’t completely clear which line up was for Open Table’s VIP reservations. Fortunately we got there a bit earlier than our 12:45pm reservation time but the line up was long and we had a relatively shorter wait than everyone else.... 45mins.
Loved the seafood tower and bottomless mimosas. Selection and food quality was one of the best I’ve ever had. Service was great. It deserves the title of #1 buffet in the USA.
Made my 50th birthday celebration truly memorable.
I was so happy to have this VIP package for my birthday celebration.
There was only one thing I don't like. When I tried to talk to the staff at front desk to get my reservation, the lady was so impatient and had almost showed her upset face to me. I understand that there are a lot of people waiting, and she was serving so many people at that time, but it was not professional and nearly unacceptable in a high-end-on-the-strip hotel in Las Vegas.
However, the second lady who helped me was super nice and friendly. I had a great time and great food there.
I went on time to my reservation and had to stand in line for an hour and a half to check in. Then they told me it would be another hour to be seated. Why make reservations if you can’t make the time?! It was very frustrating and disappointing.
The shellfish platter smelled so strongly we asked the wait staff to remove it. We actually were afraid it might make us sick. The rest of the buffet was ok, but not phenomenal.
Booking the VIP reservation package on OpenTable is the way to go to avoid the wait, and the complimentary seafood tower is spectacular. Easily worth over $100 on its own! The rest of the buffet is also good. Some things are great, and you can eat unlimited good meats and seafood, so I think you definitely get value for the money. But I did find some of the foods a little lackluster in flavor and texture, a little inconsistent. I mostly gravitated toward the dim sum and sushi.
Nice variety of food offered and warm comfortable atmosphere. Dessert bar was quite extensive.
Service was terrible especially since we purchased the VIP experience. It did not feel close to VIP at all. We waited over an hour for our seafood tower which I find that unacceptable since the point of paying for VIP was to get VIP service . We barely ate the seafood tower since it took forever to get it. What a waste of $300 we paid for our friends and basically felt it wasn't worth it not even close. Why pay for VIP cost which is already super expensive but didn't get the VIP experie nice. Regret paying that much for food that didn't come close to it. Very disappointed.
We enjoyed the great verity of foods. The seafood was Absolutely the best quality, a wonderful selection of shellfish. The chef is very creative.
