One of the most hyped buffets in town, Bacchanal, offers all the traditional crowd pleasers (crab, oysters and prime rib) plus a couple of unexpected, but delightful, extras, such as fried chicken and waffles and Japanese mochi.
Food at Bacchanal is served in appetizing, well-executed individual portions that some Vegas buffet-aficionados might recognize from Wicked Spoon, which runs a similar concept. The settings and the price tag is also a step above most other buffets in the city, placing Bacchanal in the ambitious category of new, upscale buffets targeting a slightly more sophisticated crowd.
I visited Bacchanal for the first time back in 2014 for lunch, and I wasn’t impressed. The selection of dishes just didn’t do it for me and I found the place overpriced and over-hyped. In 2015 I decided to give Bacchanal a second try. This time I went for dinner, and it was a completely different experience. I’m not sure if they changed anything or if the dinner buffet is just much better than the lunch buffet, but I really liked it a lot.
Bacchanal is one of the most popular buffets in Las Vegas and especially on weekends, the queue to get a table can get very long. I hate waiting in line, especially when I’m hungry, so I would go right after they open.
• The buffet price includes unlimited soft drinks (and bubbly for the champagne brunch).
