Carnival World Buffet in Rio             
      
Month Visited: 01/09 - Good Meal - Brunch

The meal is always a good meal everytime I go. The line for the entrence can get long, but the wait is worth it. I would reccomend going to the oriental grill first because it does get to be a long wait.    20051

DID NOT LIKE THE COMPUTERIZED CASHIER AND BEING LED TO THE TABLE BY A WOMAN CARRYING A FLAG...AS IF I WERE A CHILD; FOOD GENERALLY GOOD...EXCEPT HUMUS - TASTED SPOILED AND SOME OF THE SUSHI WAS DRY IN TEXTURE AS IF IT WERE SITTING OUT TOO LONG; CRAB LEGS - WASTE OF TIME - NOT MUCH MEAT FOR THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO OPEN THEM; SERVER WAS FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT.    19969

We had dinner here on Thurs Sept 18.
The vast selection of food overwhelmed us. The food was very good. The food was presented well at all the stations. The stations were very clean too unlike Gold Coast. The service was excellent. Our server was friendly and she was always topping up our water and pop at least 6x. We saw her do that to other cutomers too. We were given extra napkins, wetnaps etc while we ate.
We would definetly come back again !!

Month Visited: 05/08 - Bad Meal - Dinner

was disappointed. Felt like a giant cafeteria- not exactly the "ambiance" we expected. Table was dirty when we arrived, waitress brought the wrong drinks to two of the 4 people in our party, only cleared plates once, never brought refills on drinks, brought a tea with no tea bag and then wasnt seen again.
The food is average at best. Generally it seems to be liked because there are a lot of food stations and different food items. I would rather go to someplace that makes 30 items really well than a place that makes 100 items that are crappy. Halibut was overcooked to the point of being inedible, everything was greasy, not a thing stood out as being decent. 9 bucks more and we went to Mandalay Bay's buffet- world of difference.

My husband and I were looking forward to eating here since it had been showcased on the Food Network. BIG MISTAKE!! This was the most expensive and worst meal that we had while in Las Vegas. The food quality was horrible! Although there was a large selection of items...a big selection of YUCK is not worth choosing from. Please...do not risk polluting your taste buds. Danger...go back...do not enter!    19684

upon visiting L.V for the first time I did some research on some hotels, and the buffets. A group of us visited the RIO to eat at Carnival and we all agreed that this was the best food at a buffet. I would definitely eat there again and again. best time to go for dinner is just after 4pm.    19685

Month Visited: 02/08 - Good Meal - Dinner

We had always hesitated to eat here due to the mixed reviews for this buffet, but we found it to be wonderful. We tried it because my husband really wanted a steak and I don't eat beef, so a buffet is a compromise. We found a coupon for a "cook to order steak" to be included with your meal, so we took the shuttle from our hotel, which was very convenient and free, over to the Rio. We went on a Tuesday night, Fat Tuesday to be specific and thought for sure the line would be long. 15 minutes, if that much. The server was very efficient and was there right when we needed her. The selection of food was enormous, probably the largest of any of the buffets we have tried, and I have tried most of them. My husband said his steak was wonderful and to be honest - it smelled really good. The crab and shrimp were excellent and the desserts were lovely. I don't really know what else you could want? They basically had everything and it was all well prepared and hot when it was supposed to be and very cold when it needed to be. We definitely reccommend it.    19620

This is my favorite, more choices than any where on earth! Everything is good. The down side is it's off the strip, still easier to get to than the Strosphere. A little pricy, but everything in Vegas is now. Better than Mandalay Bay.    19192

I eat here every time I go to Vegas, which is once a year. I dont consider my trip complete without eating at the Rio. The food was great, along with the service, and the waitresses/waiters. I eat so much when I get there sometimes I feel like I dont need to eat for another day or two. LOL. Definitely worth the money, drive, and wait. AWESOME!!!! I cant wait to go again!    20374

This buffet is huge. Each world region had a large selection to choose from. I loved the Mexican and Asian stations. The sushi was good but not a lot of variety. You can build your own stir fry that is cooked right in front of you and the cook adds whatever kind of meat you want. I liked this buffet because it wasn't just fried chicken and mashed potatoes. There were foods for people of all ages. We used $5 off coupons, even with that it is still a little expensive. I would recommend eating here.    19124

Month Visited: 05/07 - Bad Meal - Breakfast

I hit this buffet for a very early breakfast on a Friday morning. I was second on line, so waiting was not a factor. The drink service was exceptional and the staff was ultra friendly. Besides the fresh omelet station, the food was an utter disappointment for the price ($15 plus tax...there are coupons available for the buffet, but I was dining alone so they would not take the POV 2/1 and I forgot my CP $5 off coupon). The waffles were dry, the eggs benedict were a disgrace (cold, mushy muffin, gross sauce), the scrambled eggs were undercooked and the croissants were stale. I was not overly impressed with the selection, although they did have some Mexican style breakfasts available. I will not be returning to this buffet for breakfast...you can find me at the Paris or Orleans buffets ;)    19114

WOW! What an amazing selection of food. We stopped in on our last day in town and were blown away by the selection and quality. I just don't understand where all the negative comments are coming from. There was literally something for every taste, and all that we sampled was fresh and appetizing. we had numerous "dining" experiences in Vegas that were alot more expensive, and alot less appealing than this Buffet. In fact ,we tend to avoid buffets in Vegas, but the Rio is an exception.    18995

We had just moved into town 2 weeks before Easter and our daughter had flown in from Ohio so we decided to try the Buffet at the Rio for Easter Dinner. There was so much food and everything was delicious. We will be eating there again on Father's Day. My husband is looking forward to it.

We first went here on 6/03 and was fantastic, but the old gray mare ain't what she used to be... now it's being served as prime rib. Our last visit 3/07 we thought we'd check it out again. Mistake! They also change the crab legs from steamed to THAWED! Yuck, complete with unrinsed fecal matter attached! I would look elsewhere, possibly the Wynn, because the newer the place the better the food, usually    18926

Four of us went for the lunch buffet forgetting that it was Sunday Brunch..The food was amazing and we had $5.00 off coupons so that helped with the price. I had lots of champagne and the server was excellent. We actually left him a 10.00 tip because he was great. I highly recommend it!!!    18874

Went to the buffet years ago when the Rio was it's own entity (and much cheaper), not under the control of Harrahs. Went back again in December 2006, food was awesome, selection was incredible. I never saw roasted duck in a buffet-until this one and it tastes like you were in a chinese store that roasts them daily. Will go back again. Also found a $5 off coupon in one of the freebie magazines to make it even more worthwhile. Service was outstanding too.    18678

Yeech....this is the only word I can come up with to explain how lousy this buffet is. It's huge----if you want big, then go for it. But, if you want food that is good AND different than frozen food you can get at home, then stay away. I had fish & chips. It was the same fish filet that I buy at Costco. It was nearly $20 for each of us, too. Stay away.    19118

Loved it! Use the $5.00 coupon and by-pass automated machine. We went for lunch and didn't eat until breakfast the next day! Lots of choices, dessert looked freshly made not manufactured and reasonbly sized after eating a big meal! Would like to see the shrimp devined and peeled. Other than that no complaints and would eat here again.    17706

We ate at three buffets and this was the best. Everything about the Rio was exciting and entertaining. Next time i'm in Vegas, this is the place for me. I can even bring my kids and they will be entertained. The food was great and had soooo much to choose from. I know I gained 10 pounds at one meal.    17446

Month Visited: 04/06 - Bad Meal - Dinner

We decided to eat at the Rio while in Vegas this month. It was a bad decision. To start, when you get to the buffet, you have to deal with a machine to pay for your meal. That's not so bad until you get behind a 70 year old guy who doesn't understand the system and holds the line for 10 minutes figuring it out. That in its self is o.k. but the hostess stood there the entire time watching the man struggle and did not offer to help. Once you get past the payment, you have to stand in another line and wait to be seated by time of arrival. Once seated, the Rio, in its infinate wisdom has taken down all the signs pointing the way to each station. Once you find what you want, I found the quality of the food to well, suck! The roast beef was tough as shoe leather, the prime rib was cooked extra well done and had no taste. The desserts were awful to put it nicely. Don't waste your time or money on this buffet. If you do, you'll be writing the next review like mine.    17526

Great buffet – wonderful selection. My favorite is the teppanyaki station where they grill your choice of meat and veggies for you. It is fresh and non greasy. They had a wide array of desserts including gelato (which seems to be the trendy choice these days). Seafood selection was good. Great experience. Look for $5 off coupons in the Las Vegas Magazine and What’s On magazine.    17350

This is by far the BEST buffet in Vegas. The food is always fantastic, and the variety is incredible. A wonderful, comfortable atmosphere. Every time we visit we are never disappointed. Even the fruit (watermelon in particular) is better than other buffets we've visited. I love this place and would HIGHLY recommend it. There's just no way you could be disappointed. This is always one of the highlights of our trips to Vegas, I can't wait to go again. A+++.    17075

We tried 2 times to get into this buffet. Heard alot about it and wanted to try it. The lines were 1 1/2 hours the first time and 2 hours the second time. Never got into the place. Maybe they need to expand the dinding area or give you some type of pager so you wouldn't have to wate time standing in line.    16810

We don't usually eat at buffets in Vegas because we can eat at Country Buffet anytime we want to (never)and we don't like to stand in line. The buffets were worth it back when they were 5.99. Now that they're 25.99, they don't hold the same appeal. Because of this I can't compare this buffet to any others but I can compare quality/price versus other meal options. If you're hungry, the food and price are good enough to warrant a visit. Lots of selection, a bar, and the best food I've ever had at a buffet. Looked a little like a cafeteria and the automated pay system is a joke. Service was typical Las Vegas. Had we had to wait in a long line I don't think it would have been worth the visit, but since we got lucky with no line we considered it a good meal.    16665

POOR SERVICE WITH LITTLE ENTHUSIASM - FOOD MEDIOCRE BUT THE WORST OFFENSE WAS THE PRICE -
THEY PROMOTE A $8:95 RATE FOR LUNCH BUT CHARGED $13.95 WHEN WE SHOWED UP - THE HOSTESS
SAID I HAD TO "PROVE" THE AD RATE BY BRINGING IN A COPY AND ONLY THEN WOULD THEY HONOR IT
- I DO NOT BELIEVE THE VEGAS PAPER GETS THEIR PRICES WRONG - THEY CALL AND GET THE PRICE
FELT TRICKED...

Month Visited: 12/05 - Undecided - Brunch

Dont know if it was good or bad. went there on Dec 23. instead of $15 some bucks they charged $24 per person with unlimited champagne. well..it was by far not the best meal we had. buffet was full of screaming children, some regular white trash folks who decided to bring thei infant kids to Vegas at once and let them crawl free around the buffet. e.t.c.
i still dont understand why people bring children to vegas. it is not the place for children. especially kids that cannot walk on their own.
but that aside- champage was crappy, food was really nothing special. had 3 diff kind of sushi. had lots of fried chicken and something else that was deep fried...pasta with little or no chicken at all..
not so great selection blah blah. not worth for $24 for sure,
still love the Paris buffet. guess it spoiled me with their great selection ;)

This had to be one of the best buffets i have had in Vegas. !st off this place was HUGE. in order to try everything they had you would have to eat here 3 times. I especially enjoyed the stirfry station, you pick what vegetables and meat you want anf they grill it up for you it was awesome.The Mrs enjoyed the dessert bar, they had plenty of sufar free desserts for people who have diabetes. I enjoyed the huge selection of gellatto. The service was standard buffet service, he kept our glasses filled but wasnt very personable. The valu was great we had 5.00 off coupons that we got from Vegas4locals.com, which we were able to use for lunch so it cost only 10.99 per person, great deal.    16551

The food was great, However the pay system was the worse. Its like an ATM you put your money in this machine to pay, and it takes a little time and holds up the line.    15312

This is the largest buffet I have ever seen. Walk it before you get any food.
Salad bar is okay; everything is fresh. Rest of food is good. Many stations have cooks to prepare what you want. Desserts are delish. Italian station is very good and there is good old American food as well. Lots of Asian food. Mexican food is good but not great, but then I am from Texas and we get good old TexMex all the time. Always eat here when in Vegas, but we have a Harrahs Diamond Card and get priority seating and good comps. If I didn't get the comps, I probably would not pay to eat here very often.

I had checked the reviews about thie buffet before going, and of course had to see for myself. So being that this was the first time I have been to this buffet, my sister and I were glad that we had the $10 off coupon last week when we went. I do think this buffet is a bit pricey for what it is, but we did enjoy the meal very much! It was very clean, the servers we had were very very nice and accomodating, always checking to make sure we were ok, and emptying the dirty plates. Yes the lobster tails were very small, but the flavor was Awesome!! The crablegs were the sweetest I have had in a long time. Then dessert left us so full you could have rolled us out of there.. ha ha! When we go to Vegas again next year, we will definately going back!    15059

Way overpriced. $23.99 for dinner. Food was good but not any better than the buffets at the others like the Luxor or MGM which are considerably less expensive.    15062

I had the Rio Breakfast buffet in April, 2005. Not too bad, but certainly not as good as the Aladdin's. They make you pay for your buffet at a computerized checkout. Old people who could not figure out how to use the thing held up the line for a while. Why can't they just have somebody there to take your money? Anyway, decent variety of food, but wasn't that great for the price. Omlets were very good, as well as the fruit and bacon. I would have no problem eating there again but would also try other hotels breakfast buffets.

I love this Buffet. I have been too many buffets in my life, but this is the best ever. I love the whole International theme. From pizz, to burritos, to chinese food, you get to have it all. The only bad thing about this buffet is that it is in Vegas, and I am in Los Angeles. I can't wait to go back. Watch out Rio here comes Jeca.

P.S. I love all the little sweets they have.
Yummy for my tummy
