Sterling Brunch Buffet - Bally's Las Vegas
Last reservation at 1:30pm.
Food was great, and the service was incredible. I will be having Sterling Brunch again!
We had reservation at 12:00. Checked in with hostess at 11:45. Did not get seated until 1:00. It appears that they forgot about us, but no apology. Waitress said that she had empty tables for a while.
Then there was a nat or some kind of bug in the orange juice. Again no apology or anything. Excuse was they were squeezing the orange juice fresh.
Food was flavorful and good, but experience was ruined by the service.
I was very disappointed. The filet mignon was very tough. Afew of the lobsters were very mealy. I did love the shrimp cocktail and the desserts.
The buffet costs quite a bit but was all well worth the cost. Food was fantastic and our server Jim did a great job. We would do it again for any special occasion.
Lobster tails were mushy and didn't taste fresh at all. King crab legs also didn't taste fresh. Filet mignon was mediocre. On a positive note, the waitress was excellent. The bread pudding was fantastic as were the desserts in general. The rack of lamb was also very good.
Top tier selections of seafood such as caviar, lobster tail, Alaskan king crab, stone crab claws, and oysters; breakfast items such as sausage, bacon, biscuits n’ gravy, waffles, and omelette cooked to order; cuts of meats like lamb, prime rib and steaks; plethora of desserts; a Bloody Mary Bar; and of course the bottomless Perrier Jouet champagne! Delicious!
The service was also very attentive, courteous and met all our needs. Diane was superb.
We always try to sit at the bar where bartenders Laurel and Rob are simply amazing - they give unparalleled sevice, and are so friendly and accommodating. We look forward to it as one of the best things about a trip to Vegas. Thanks gentlemen for always making it so special!
Never fells to be excellent place to eat! See you in March for birthday 🎁
Expensive but worth the money. Excellent choice if you have 2 hours to spare.
I was blown away by how delicious the food was. The lobster was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the champagne wads never-ending. What a treat!!
Excellent choice of food but temperature was a little cold. Should put oysters with sushi. Need better sushi selection.
The front desk team, our server, Javier, and the busser were wonderful - an absolute delight. The food was horrible - mushy lobster, tobiko camouflaged as caviar, Jonah crab was useless (may I suggest Dungeness that offers the diner a lush bite of crab meat rather than shards of meat that is super frustrating to get at?), prime rib was overcooked, the poached egg on the eggs benedict was PERFECT, but set atop a fluffy biscuit, which resulted in a mouthfeel of mush atop mush, and the waffles were dry and overcooked. There really was not one redeeming item to be had. We were enticed to dine at Sterling because the bottomless Champagne on offer is one of our favorites, and we are known to enjoy our Champagne. Alas, it would have been a better choice to dine at a restaurant known for their food, and probably less expensive. If it weren't for my dining partner (my husband), and our lovely server, Sterling would top our "worst restaurant experience" list.
The tasting menu has only a fruit plate on it, according to our server. We were looking forward to that because of the reviews. He said they put those items mostly on the buffet line. We didn't see anything more than we read about. The value, in our opinion, definitely isn't worth the $105 per person. Going to the Sterling Brunch was on our bucket list, as we have been to Vegas many times and have read the reviews. That being said, we will not return. It was a disappointment. Also, there is no discount for being a total rewards member.
A great place to dine. Good food and drink. The service was excellent. Great place for a special occasion.
I'd heard about the Sterling Brunch and since we were going to Vegas, I thought we'd book in. Glad we did, but I probably wouldn't rush to go back. Service was excellent from Lupita, but the food was a bit sub-par for the $105 per person price tag. I was a bit disappointed the lobster wasn't cold-water (my preference), and the texture of some of the lobster was mushy instead of springy. I expect the lobster tails were previously frozen because of the texture. I thought there'd be a bit more variety of vegetables too (there was only grilled asparagus as a stand alone veggie). This is a meat-heavy brunch so will satisfy carnivores.
This place was amazing. From the moment we walked in they were welcoming. We were seated and we got up before the waiter and waitress could introduce themselves when we got back to the table every drink they offer was on our table an it was amazing. I would Higly recommend this place to everyone
Very good service and the food was phenomenal...!!!
Knowing ahead of time that we won’t get my money worths, we were still expecting more of a upscale type of restaurant environment and food. The place was dark and stale; the service was mediocre, and the food was okay. For $125 per person, it was not worth it.
Was super excited to go to this buffet after seeing all the reviews. However was completely disappointed. I have been to many Vegas buffets and while this buffet did boast a few high end options they did not live up to expectations. The filet mignon was both raw and undercooked and severely suffered from being under the heat lamp. The lobster tail was good but other than that there were only about 10 other food options making there not much variety. Truth be told the only things I enjoyed we’re the lobster tails and crab legs. The desserts were awful and consisted only of a variety of mousses everything was a goopy texture no cake no cookies, pastries or anything like that. Even what I thought was a cake pop was filled with chocolate goo instead of cake. Overall for the lack of options was sorely lacking on this buffet and only a few things were worth eating because high end food just doesn’t do well on a buffet or at least at this buffet it’s not well done or changed out so for the $99 a pop and ridiculous wait for reservations there’s tons of cheaper buffets which offer just as good of food and tons of more options for less that I would go to before coming here. Definitely did not live up to the hype and I was disappointed I came here instead of bellagio or wicked spoon where I’ve had much more enjoyable meals.
Our sever was not attentive and food was not as great as ive heard it to be. We had to try and get our server’s attention two three times before she noticed. Although, its a seafood buffet, the price was not worth the quality of most of the food. Lobster tasted old and the lobster meat was mushy and brittle. The lobster ravioli was sitting out to the point it was dry. Sushi looked like it was from convenient store. The best thing I had was the King Crab leggs, oyster and lamp. Not much of a spread either.
Not worth it. Some other buffets are much better and worth the price
An extravagant brunch buffet fit for Vegas! An amazing experience that must be experienced first hand.
Buffet had a nice set up, but I think it’s a bit overrated. There was not a whole lot to choose from considering it’s a buffet and for the cost. I do like the idea of it being by reservations only. I don’t know if I would come back or recommend it. Also, our waiter was terribly rude. He ignored us throughout most of the meal and we had to constantly flag him down for service!
For a high end buffet the dessert selection was horrible. No cakes. No ice cream. No cookies. No creme brûlée. No pies. No pudding. No gelato. Extremely disappointing finish to a nice brunch. Lobster tails, king crab legs, filet mignon and Yorkshire pudding were all tasty and cooked to perfection.
Lobster was tasteless, filet was chewy. Best thing on the buffet was the King crab.
Disappointing. We tried to get in here so many times and for the price I wouldn’t do it agin or recommend to someone else.
Not worth, over hyped, and extremely underwhelming. Bacchanal at Caesars is better.
Tony is the best!
We celebrated an anniversary - we had amazing staff that took care of us and the food was delicious and prepared uniquely.
Made the reservation 4 months in advance. Everything we tried was very good. The crab legs and filet mignon were excellent. Lobster tails were a little chewy, but we had 5 between my party of 2. I went to wicked spoon and bacchanal earlier in the week, and would reccomend to anyone to spend a few extra bucks here. I left actually feeling like I got a bargain. Tony was also extremely charismatic and funny. He was actually disappointed that he let my champagne glass go empty. I will definitely be back
Service was inadequate, I told server no more champagne, he kept pouring, disregarding what I said. I am a diabetic, can not have champagne, or any alcohol, he should have been more considerate.
Doubt I will return
Sterling brunch never disappoints. Always so good. My favorite are king crab legs, lobster tail and filet mignon. Price is worth the food and service.
Had high expectations. Though first located in a dark remote corner next to the bussing door, we were relocated to a fair location and is not reflected in the star rating. We normally dine at Bacchanal in Caesars, which is a comparable venue, and referenced for comparison.
These are the discoveries that determined our rating.
Lobster is a high-end addition, though doesn’t have much flavor.
Servers are professional and engaged.
Actual champagne, a bonus.
Disorganized reception. Proper training may be an issue with this. Also, their reservation guests are processed in what appears to be a lottery type of selection.
Minimal selection for the price.
Ruin an omelet, pretty tough. It happened here.
Prefer not to say this, but unless you consume mass quantities of champagne, the value just isn’t there.
Great food, great service. Second me time here and it did NOT disappoint. Lobster, steak, eggs, lamb, crab... all perfectly prepared. Highly recommend.
We have been going to the Sterling Brunch since the price was $5 (now $105). It is definitely a must try at least once during a trip to Vegas. They pour Perrier Jouet champagne freely. All of the food is high end, but if you are looking for an extensive selection, this is not the place to go. Jumbo chilled shrimp, Joh=nah crab claws, king crab legs (which USED to be pre-split), lobster tail, filet, prime rib, lamb chops, and more. Three different eggs Benedict are available from the kitchen via your server. They also have caviar. Desserts are wonderful, and their homemade vanilla ice cream (ask your server) is outstanding! Advanced reservations are a must, as they are extrememly busy.
Food was good. Went for the Filet, Lobster, and Champaign. James was our server, service was excellent. Champaign was always flowing.
Fantastic sunday brunch. Lots of great food, champange and service from Hugo is always a pleasure.
The Desserts were sparce. Regarding the drinks, the waiter told me there were no large glasses to prepare my Bloody Mary, therefore I had to get it made in a small glass. For such a big establishment you would think there would be enough large glasses to prepare the drinks. I could not have a photo taken because I wanted to compliment my "brunch" with a large glass of my favourite drink, considering the price I was paying for the food at this place.
Our waiter was amazing and so funny. He's been working the Sterling Brunch for 40 years and I felt like a lot of the employees had also been there a long time. We wanted to come during our trip ever since we saw it on BuzzFeed's Worth It. My husband and I without a doubt agree it is SO worth it and we will need to plan around being in Vegas on a Sunday just to go again.
The overall ambiance of the restaurant is lovely. Then you are seated. The chairs are too low and really uncomfortable. My daughter said the banquette seating was very uncomfortable also. It's difficult to have a great dining experience when you start this way and know it is not going to get better, but we tried. The prime rib was very good as was the lobster, if you were lucky enough to get the ones that were properly cooked. I happened to get one of the mushy ones, experience ruined. The spiny crab too difficult to eat without injuring your hands. Our waiter was the best part of the experience and your entire staff was pleasant and helpful.
An expensive splurge of a brunch but the content of the buffet is worth the price of admission. You can never go wrong with all you can eat lobster and filet mignon, although it’s the luck of the draw with the steak as the three that i picked were past its prime while my friend’s inly selection was a perfect medium rare. The dessert here was and after thought but never ending perrier more than makes up for it. They also have lamb if you are into the gamey meats and the omelet with lobster, bourbon and Boursin cheese was delicious.
