The buffet was really nice with plenty of choices and a good choice of desserts. Had lunch and dinner there and think the lunch was a better deal so I would have my big meal at lunch. Didn't have breakfast there so can't say what it was like.

Food and beers were good. It took an hour to get our food and it was obvious that some plates had been sitting for a while. Frustration of the wait was compounded by an inattentive waiter who also got our bill wrong.

I honestly didn't expect much from the Eldorado but when I stepped inside it, I was very impressed. We sent out to breakfast and their buffet is huge! They had so many varieties of breakfast items. The wait staff was very nice and on top of things. I believe the breakfast buffet was only $9.99. Great price and great food!

I prefer not to go to a buffet, yet in spite of my general dislike of this kind of restaurant the Eldorado buffet is an excellent choice. The variety is excellent, decent service, better choices and layout than other buffets. The only minor complaint is how slow it is to pay/get seated. Minor glitch in an otherwise excellent operation.

We ate breakfast and dinner at The Buffet in the Eldorado. The breakfast was overall pretty good. A nice selection of items and some excellent pastries. The cold smoked salmon was good and I liked the fruit selection. Sausage patties were too salty to even eat, gravy was plain and the eggs benedict was below average. I probably should have... More

The name of this restaurant is simple - The Buffet. Given its simple name, we are delighted with this buffet, one of the best in Reno. Excellent salads, salmon, pizza, ravioli (the best), hot dishes, carving stations. There is an excellent dessert bar and lots of choices in gelato ice cream. So good. Service is good here - i.e. its... More

Nobody leaves this buffet hungry! I wanted to try everything there and left thoroughly stuffed almost to the point of being uncomfortable. Be careful not to over-do it, your eyes will be bigger than your tummy!

Ate here once for breakfast, once for lunch, and twice for dinner. The breakfast needed work: potato dishes were greasy and eggs benedict looked and tasted like it sat for awhile. That is why the rating did not achieve a 5. However, lunch and dinners were great with many choices and great deserts. A bit crowed on a Friday. I... More

Overpriced dinner. They had 4 different pastas all with white sauce. I thought each one would have a distinct flavor, but they all tasted the same. The variety is scarce, as they have a little bit of Mexican food, a bit of Chinese, Italian, and a bit of American cuisine. A bit being about about 3 -4 platters of each... More
