Not high valued! Once is definitely enough. Reservation was for 1:00. Sat down at 1:20. Ran out of king crab and lamb chops at 1:30! So basically had one king crab leg and no lamb chops!

Everything was excellent. The cost was a little excessive $125 p/p. In my opinion as a consumer $90-$95 p/p is more realistic. Will go back for a special occasion.

Decadent only begins to describe this meal. The signature omelette is not to be missed. Lobster, Cognac, and Boursin cheese. Put some of the INCLUDED unlimited caviar on top and you have the best omelette I've ever tasted. Reserve early, and DO NOT MISS THIS!

The lobster was old and had started to decay cats smell of ammonia. We handed one to our server who returned it to the chef, who after taking it to the chef came back and told us that the chef would be checking the other Lobster. Out of the four lobsters we took, 3 smell like ammonia.
The king crab was overcooked dried out and old.

At $125 per plate oh, I would expect that the food would outshine the desert, not the other way around.

I will never attend your brunch again.

The food was outstanding. We had red on TripAdvisor that the deserts weren't very good but they've got a new dessert chef and they were excellent it was well worth the money even though it was on the pricier side me more than got our money's worth and the service was excellent. Cannot recommend this enough we had been looking forward to it after hearing about it and it did not disappoint

Food selection was subpar. The food can be prepared better. Good size lobster but it is chewy. Seasoning is not evenly coating the lobsters. Meat was just fine too. Limited selections for a buffet.

From our arrival at Ballys the experience was nothing short of exciting. Being a Sunday, there was lots of activity in the casino and hotel with tourists galore. People shopping, sightseeing and of course the table games and slots. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and went directly to check out the fare. Everything we expected and more. The food was delicious and spectacular presentation. The star of course was the Lobster which was superb. As was the King Crab and Prime Rib. Side note....this was a birthday gift from me to my daughter and my good buddy, who celebrated their birthdays that week. We flew in from L.A. in the AM, enjoyed our Sterling Buffet, and flew back home in the afternoon. They were both surprised and delighted which made my day. A marvelous time....Thanks Open Table for helping to make this happen.

I have dined here often. Took my sister for her first time. I was very disappointed. The quality has gone down and the price increased by $25 per person without notice I would not have objected to the increase if the food was still the same and the champagne has also changed.

Anniversary treat. Service was excellent. Bloody Mary delicious, with a generous pour noted; servers regularly filled the champagne. Ambience—loud conversations by other guests. Food was unremarkable: lobster tails varied in quality/taste/texture. Most food was cold in the chilly restaurant; drawn butter even congealed in the stainless dipping cups, and fat on lamb and prime rib of beef did so also. We’re locals, and wanted to come here at least once. It will be the only time, unless there are significant improvements reported by other patrons. I wonder whether management reads these reviews; it seems the same shortcomings have been reported by most customers in recent months or even years, with no apparent changes or remedies.

Love this place. Come here once a year. I love the fact that I get to eat four lobster tails, prime rib and lamb chops. The champagne is a very good brand not a cheap one. The waiters keep the champagne flowing. You are not rushed when dining here. Well worth the 125.00 price.

The service was exceptional, Our waiter Javier was the best server I’ve encountered.
Now as far as the food, almost everything was cold. There are only a few things at Bally’s and it’s just sad the food couldn’t have been warm. I feel with the price people deserve at least warm food. I wanted to have a better experience since I’ve had a reservation set since march, but honestly it’s just over hyped and not that great.

Surprised to see a significant price hike on top of a down grade from the Perrier Champagne. Almost getting to noisy to chat with your tablemate without yelling. We have been going to the Sterling at least once a year for many years. Just did not live up to expectations this year. Future visits will require some considerations.

Sterling buffet has changed. Food quality is down. Service is down. However, the bread service remains the best in Las Vegas. Been going for years , hope they get their mojo back!

Their signature items (lobster, filet mignon, lamb) were all ridiculously overcooked. Tough and chewy to the point that I couldn't even make it through my first serving. Service was less than mediocre. I waited 25 min for a refill of water. To me that us unacceptable in a buffet setting as the primary job of the server is to refill drinks and clear tables.

After hearing all the hype about the Sterling buffet, I was super disappointed with our meal. Sure there was all you can eat lobster but the food quality was just not good and definitely not worth the big brunch tab. Their famous lobster tails were not served hot, just a dull room temp bordering on cold. Selection was very limited. My advice...save you money and head over to the Bacchanal buffet at Cesar’s where their buffet never disappoints.

This was the buffet that I really wanted to try. As you'd expect for the price, the food was good but I would not say exceptional. There was also a far more limited choice of food than other buffets. In terms of overall value for money I left feeling disappointed.

The atmosphere was nice & we had great service. The food was also very good... but, with that being said, we did not feel that the price tag that came with it was worth it. Without leaving a tip, the $270 bill was steep considering all the options that Vegas has to offer for far less. None the less, we’re happy we tried it & Although we likely won’t be back, it was an overall good experience!

Our first time here and although we went for the all u can eat crab legs, it was the lobsters tails that stole the show! The service was fantastic and the food just kept coming and coming ( as well as the champagne) While it’s spendy, it’s well worth the experience.

Lobster was great. Lamb was good. Shrimp was good. Prime rib was overcooked and king crab legs could have been better. Didn't even try the desert. Was too full by then.

Probably the best service ive ever had in my life. The first lobster tail i had was perfect, after that one all the rest were mushy and not as good. The sushi though, worste sushi ive had in life! Had a really weird taste and too much rice, fish didnt taste fresh. The steaks were good. The oysters didnt seem very fresh. Everything els was good. Overall i was satisfied with the food after waiting 4 months but i would not come back here. Only good for the experience. Prices seemed to just keep going up and up. Not worth 125 a person! But something fun to try.

I've been maybe once a year the past 4 years. The. Price went up an no longer offer member discounts or Perrier Juet. I just can't justify going anymore at the $125pp cost when their are other lobster buffets for ~$50 plus aycd packages for not too much more.

This brunch has gone down hill over the years...

We booked 6 months in advance and we told them it was our anniversary. When we arrived, we were shown to the worst table (in what used to be the waiting area) - literally a table as far from the buffet/service area as possible. We were essentially shown to a table back at the hostess desk. I complained and we were then escorted to a nicer table after a 25 min wait...

The dress code has gone - people wearing basketball uniforms and flip flops is fine apparently now.

The caviar is no longer silver service but is served on the buffet, in mis matched sizes of portion and containers - just sat on the side. The fillet is no longer to order, but over done and sat under a heat lamp. The oysters are left on the side and have a dry film over them.

Service was poor. We were not informed about the Bloody Mary bar, that’s the Eggs Benedict was made to order or that anything other than champagne or orange juice was even available.

Everything was a bit mediocre and honestly, something that used to be a big part of our Vegas tradition will no longer be of interest until we hear they’ve turned things around...

OMG! If you only do one brunch while in Vegas this is the one. First of all it was not crowded—we went at 11:30 and didn’t have to fight any lines. The service was exemplary and fun. The food was over the top—lobster tails, king crab legs, stone crab claws, shrimp, filet, prime rib, caviar and that’s just some of what they offered. It was decadence at the max and included bottomless champagne (not the cheap stuff) and a Bloody Mary bar. You could tell the quality of the food was not sub-par. Absolutely the best brunch ever.

A tentative yes. It was a bucket list adventure. All meat was very rare. It was extremely cold in the dining room. The price increase drives the overall value down but for unlimited lobster and other high end entrees, it should be experienced at least one time.

The stand-out dish for me was their signature lobster and cognac omelette. About 1/3 of the lobster tails I had were not properly cooked, and mushy. But some were perfect. King crab leg shells were soft, and wouldn’t even crack open— they would just bend over. So it wasn’t the best quality crab and lobster. The shrimp were big and perfect. Service was great. Place mats were frayed on the corners and should be replaced for being a higher end steak house. I’m glad I went. I thought I got my money’s worth, but wish the quality of the lobster and crab was better.

Please save your money. The lobster tails were so bad - mushy, not fresh - I wouldn’t want my enemy to eat it. Crab barely had any meat. Every other dish were not memorable. Either very bland or salty. No server came to our table until 10 minutes after we sat down. Didn’t clear dishes either so we had to stack it up ourselves. For $125/person, you’d expect this to be a decent buffet.
