I made my first trip to this expensive brunch for the first time last Sunday.
I wish I could report more happily, but this was a major disappointment. Situated in Bally's relatively intimate and clubby steakhouse, the setting is one of the more pleasant buffet experiences in LV. Drinks? Evian is the house water, decent champagne flows at an alarming rate, and the orange juice is fresh-squeezed and my favorite single item sampled.
The problem: the Sterling offers upscale offerings badly prepared. Lobster tails were mushy. Sushi had refrigerator burn. Even the lox was way too cold. None of the meat entrees that we sampled were better than decent. The desserts were a little better, but nothing was outstanding.
The Sterling brunch costs about triple the cost of the Bellagio, but the quality of the food prep., if not the selection, was a cut or two below.
Service was friendly and efficient, and our group stayed there for 2-1/2 hours without the slightest touch of bum-rushing.
