Do NOT believe any of the positive reviews of The Palms Bistro Buffet. Do believe all the awful reviews. I agree with every negative review as they were all truthful. I cannot describe fully how disgusting, gross, and stomach-turning this buffet looked, smelled & probably tasted like. I was so appalled that by the time I put my plate on our table and received the "free wine," I pushed it all to the side and said to my husband, "let's get out of here." The meat at the carving stations looked like dead carcass. Not sure what animal they were serving. The worst part was it was Thanksgiving and I thought we'd have an enjoyable, traditional dinner despite being far from home. There was so many Oriental/Mongolian trays that stunk in addition to being laden with sauces. That is always a scary feature not knowing what's buried beneath! People were cutting on line to pile up their plates and I witnessed children not being monitored by parents shoveling food on their plates then deciding they didn't want their choices and spooning food back into the trays. I also witnessed a customer "choking" and no one from The Bistro assisted him. Another customer came to his rescue by performing the Heimlich maneuver. Just a horrible experience. We summoned the waitress for our check and after seeing my full plate and glass of wine untouched, she never asked if everything was ok. When my husband asked what kinds of beers they served, she retorted, "just Busch beers, it's free!". Yes, but free equals gross. This is our 3rd trip to Las Vegas. We learned never to have dinners at the over-priced famous chef restaurants; although I love you Food Network - now we have learned to not fall prey to a voucher for a cheap buffet on the off-the-beaten path of the boulevard. I am a huge hotel and food critic. We stay at The Bellagio and have raved over their breakfast buffet. We've enjoyed dinners at The Cheesecake Factory at Caesar's Palace, Jimmy Buffet's, Magianno's down at Fashion Mall and The Outback across from The Monte Carlo Hotel. I wish I had taken photos of just how horrible this was but I wouldn't want barf-like photos included in my IPhone. Don't eat here. Nothing is worth a cheap pig's trough!
