Sterling Brunch Las Vegas Full Review & History
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas is a tradition that goes back a long time. A few years ago it took up shop in Bally’s BLT Steakhouse. By night this restaurant serves fine cuts of meat like any other steakhouse on the Vegas Strip, but on Sunday it is something completely different, Sterling Brunch.
Think of Sterling Brunch like a high-end Las Vegas buffet on steroids. From unlimited Champagne and Caviar to Prime Rib, Lobster Tails, King Crab Legs and Oysters, Sterling Brunch has some of the highest quality food you will find on a buffet anywhere. And it ain’t cheap.
Last year my wife and I decided to each use our $100 Diamond Celebration vouchers (earned from Founderscard) to enjoy Sterling Brunch. At the time the cost was $95 per person, but it has since increased to $105 per person. Now let’s take a tour and I’ll share my thoughts on whether it is worth it or not.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Review
To start, BLT Steakhouse is an attractive restaurant with dark but pleasant decor. The restaurant is famous for their bread poppers and we were served a healthy portion of them (I wonder why) along with champagne to start. The restaurant is dark, so I apologize if some of these pictures aren’t the best.
While the bread was delicious, I tried not to eat too much since I had a feast ahead of me. The champagne served is Perriet Jouet which I thought was tasty. It was a great way to start, but I was ready for some food.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Caviar, Sushi & Seafood
If you are a seafood lover, then this buffet is for you. In addition to the heavily advertised American Caviar (which I wasn’t a fan of) you can also fill yourself up with plenty of Sushi, Shrimp, Nigiri and Oysters to start.
All of the fish was very very fresh and high quality. I love Nigiri, but I tend to just eat the fish off of the top so I won’t fill up so much with rice. Everything was absolutely delicious. It was a great way to start, but the highlight for most will be the unlimited King Crab Legs and Lobster Tails. Yes, you can eat as much lobster as you want.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Lobster & Crab
My only small complaint about the King Crab Legs is that they weren’t cracked like you find at some buffets. I am not a huge fan of using crackers, so I mainly focused on the delicious broiled Lobster Tails. They were very very good and despite it being a buffet, they were in such high demand that they were coming out fresh every five minutes or so.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Meats
Now, if you don’t like seafood, then there is still plenty to eat at the Sterling Brunch Las Vegas. You want Filet Mignon? They got it. They also have fresh and delicious Prime Rib, Leg of Lamb and even Roasted Pork Belly. I’m getting full just thinking about it.
In addition to everything mentioned before, there are some traditional buffet dishes like vegetables and potatoes. I found the grilled asparagus to be a nice treat while the restaurant’s famous Truffle Mashed potatoes were fantastic as well. Sterling Brunch Las Vegas is also known for its Lobster Ravioli and while it wasn’t my favorite, it was still good. Some of these items are on the buffet while other “small bite” portioned items have to be ordered from your waiter.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Dessert
I am not the biggest dessert person and to be honest by the time we made it past all of the above, I wasn’t very hungry. With that said, as to be expected they had a nice variety of high-end desserts. I pretty much only ate the chocolate lollipops which were great. The desserts at Sterling Brunch Las Vegas are in line with what you would find from a high-end restaurant.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Is It Worth It?
Like I mentioned before, when we went the price was $95 per person but that has since increased $10 to $105 per person. Thankfully we were able to use our comp certificates, but using them still had a cost since we could have probably eaten two meals at more moderate restaurants for the same price.
If you look at TripAdvisor for reviews, you will find mostly positive feelings about this buffet. With that said, some people leave disappointed and I think that mostly has to do with the price. If you like the kind of food they serve and enjoy the champagne, then you should be able to get a decent value out of this buffet. Plus, going to Sterling Brunch is sort of an experience itself.
My wife and I made reservations (which are required) for around 12:30pm (they close at 2pm). This allowed us to skip breakfast so we were as hungry as we could be going in. During the course of our meal we each had a few glasses of champagne and were able to taste most of what was offered. This is the highest quality buffet food I have had, rivaled only by some five star boutique hotel breakfasts.
Sterling Brunch Las Vegas – Bottom Line
If you are coming to Las Vegas, love champagne and seafood, are looking for a unique experience and don’t mind spending over $100 per person then the Sterling Brunch is for you. My wife and I truly enjoyed the experience and felt we got a decent value out of eating there.
