    You might consider Bobby Flay's at Caesars Palace. Excellent sit down dinner, the bes charcoal grilled lamb chops I have ever eaten. NIce atmosphere, prices are above the norm, but then you get what you pay for. As far as buffets go, they are a complete turn off to me. Quanity rather than quality, regardless of which one you go to. I went to the went at Paris a few years ago and it was IMO about a grade C, I guess if you like to "pig out" gourge youself then you might enjoy it, but then how much food does one need?

    thanks for reply.  we would like somewhere cheap and cheerful for breakfast and restaurants not too expensive for dinner.  We quite like the buffet we had at the Gold Coast Hotel but not sure what they are like at other hotels. cgf wrote:

    I've had the buffet at the Wynn and it is beyond your imagination. Also had breakfast buffet when I was staying at the Excalibur and it was quite good--not too expensive either.

    imho the best buffet is Planet Hollywood, then Hilton.
    for breakfast I cannot help as I always look for fares with breakfast included I hate to go out for breakfast.
    very important, avoid week-ends going to las vegas, you'll find very good bargains and beware that quite a few hotel have an hide fee called resort fee
    here the list of who makes paying and who not

    There are SO many options for eating in Las Vegas. A personal favourite is Hash House A Go-Go in what was the Imperial Palace and is now called The Quad - centre strip. But go HUNGRY because the portions are huge!

    I also enjoy the Tropical Breeze Cafe in the Flamingo which has some good specials - I'm always up for their Eggs Benedict.

    If you want cheap - there's a good food court in the Casino Royale and Denny's is centre strip also.

    I'm not a huge breakfast person, but I would say most of the strip casinos have a decent coffee shop where you should be able to get a reasonable breakfast without breaking the bank. Of all of them, my favorite is Raffles Cafe in Mandalay Bay. If you're looking for an inexpensive breakfast, take a walk around the Miracle Mile shops inside Planet Hollywood - several of the restaurants there are open for breakfast with a decent breakfast special. For example, La Salsa Cantina has two eggs & sausage with a tortilla side for $3.95. Not going to leave you bloated and a good price. If you're looking to be stuffed - Hash House a Go Go in the former IP is something to consider - unique dishes - tons of food...

    For the buffets - Gold Coast is probably the best balance of quality and price you will find - it's not overly expensive, and the food is generally OK. Most of the strip buffets are much higher end on price and generally you get a better food selection. If you want to do a buffet, I would do it for lunch - prices are more reasonable then. Bellagio almost never disappoints. Cosmo is a unique experience. Mirage has a good one too. If you're more interested in something along the lines of Gold Coast, check out the one at Orleans. It's a small step up in price and quality.

    For dinner, I'm not a high-end type of visitor. Some more casual places I can recommend - Triple 7 Brewery in Main Street Station downtown and the steak special at the restaurant in Ellis Island are two standbys for me. I had a really solid burger at Kerry Simon's KGB in Harrah's last year. The Brew Pub at Monte Carlo is decent as well.

    If you are going to splurge a bit for one night I would second the recommendation of Bobby Flay's MESA Grill in Caesar's Palace. It's not inexpensive, but Flay's food has been top drawer every time we've gone there. What we do to save $$ is to not order drinks, split a salad and a dessert between us. Lunch is much cheaper.

    The other thing to consider when in Las Vegas is how far do you want to venture from your hotel to where you want to eat. Getting from place to place in a car is not as easy as it sounds. And the Strip is 4 miles long so if you are staying at one end you probably wouldn't want a place to go to at the other end.

    I will second the buffet at the Wynn Hotel. More expensive then most of the buffets, but really good food. Here is a link to my review and some pictures.

    Also if you have a car and want to go to a place outside the main strip area we enjoyed a place called Hash House A Go Go. They also have locations in San Diego and just opened one up where I'm at in Chicago.

    If you want to spead a little and get a great view go to top of the Stratosphere. You pay for the view, but the food was excellent. If nothing else go for a drink at the bar. I didn't find the prices at the bar to be much different than any place else. Location is at the far end of the strip so take a cab (won't cost much).

    The last time I was in Vegas, a couple of months ago, I spent almost the entire time off the Strip, even though that's where our hotel was. Personally, I can't stand the restaurants on the Strip because they're either absurdly expensive and crowded because of some famous chef who sold his name to it; or the food is of the "might as well have gone to Denny's" variety. There are some great restaurants in Las Vegas and, if you have a car, you do not need to spend a day's pay to eat at them. Just a couple of suggestions: Beijing Noodle Cafe (I spent two years in China, and I've never found a noodle place as good as this in the US) & Buldogi's Hot Dogs (they had a banh mi hot dog among other really interesting varieties). Also, if you like Filipino food (I don't, but to each his own), Las Vegas is one of the best places in the country to get it. The main area is just off the Strip too.

    Hope that helps.
