Everything on the buffet is clearly labeled with each food sign displaying as gluten free, vegetarian, or if it is blank you should avoid it. SO MANY OPTIONS! Came here twice it was so good and so easy to find things I can eat. It is a must-vist buffet. Well worth it!
My husband just asked one of the staff what was GF and she went in back to get one of the cooks - who walked him through the whole place and went over what was and was not safe. It was a surprising amount of items - I'd say 3/4 maybe. No issues. We both enjoyed the food - though I agree that it's overpriced. It's the Vegas strip, though - what *isn't* overpriced?
I had a staff member come out and talk to me about allergy containing items and we shared an allergy to another food group other than gluten. They were understanding and offered me gluten free soy sauce if I wanted to partake in the nigiri. Unfortunately, I am expecting so I was not able to enjoy that part of the buffet. Still, amazing offer! I had to avoid the entire Asian section and be careful as to some stations that were placed next to other gluten items. I had more options than I thought. Even though there is one thing labeled gluten free on the dessert cart there are a few options besides that. I would have given this buffet a higher rating but I did end up getting sick later that day/next day. I think I may have been fine if I check the tongs and avoided items sitting next to gluten items. If you love seafood, this buffet has a lot of options, practically all the seafood is GF and the Taco station is also friendly except the fried shrimp tacos. I would avoid the breakfast items like hash browns but they do have an omelette station by the salads. I’m still curious if there is a better buffet in Vegas for Celiac. If you are just gf... this buffet is great!
I love Cesar’s palace so I am disappointed that they don’t provide any gluten free bread options with their charcuterie or gluten free soy sauce for their Asian dishes. These are things I had no problem getting at other establishments. Cross contamination is high risk here and you need to dine at your own risk. I was able to ask enough questions and get answers from one the cooks who led me through the dessert bar but that also had only 3 options. Flan, lemon basil sorbet and creme brûlée. The seafood is really the attraction here so if you don’t like Seafood then I would consider another dining option with safer and more choices. I’m celiac and I didn’t get sick but I realize it was a risk.
This is probably the best gluten free buffet on the strip, lots of delicious options. The chef explained every item. 👍🏼
A lovely chef named Samuel took me around the buffet to point out gluten free items. About 70% of the buffet is gluten-free but about 10% has cross contamination issues (for instance the cheese and cold cuts were right beside baguettes as they were going for a charcuterie board set-up). Most of the line is set up so the gluten is away from the naturally gf items. Some of the line chefs were less knowledge, one offered me gluten free bread and then shoved it in the toaster used for regular bread. I pointed out her mistake and she took fresh bread and put it on the grill they usually reserve for their meat (so it’s gf). The Only gf desserts were fruit and gelato, but the buffet is huge so you won’t leave hungry. Plus, my bread loving husband said the pastries were just “ok” and ended up going back for more prime rib instead. If you watch for cross contamination you’ll be fine.
If you like seafood then you will be happy with this buffet. When I asked about GF options they brought a chef out to walk me through the buffet. According to him most of my options were the fresh seafood and some of the meats. It felt pretty limited, as I'm not a seafood fan. I ended up having some brisket and roasted veggies.
The redeeming part for me was the dessert station. Even though I could only have four or five things (out of the tons they had to offer) they tasted amazing and made up for the dinner portion to me.
We did not get offered any specially made food like other reviewers mentioned (although I also didn't ask), but otherwise the food and service were amazing, and plentiful. I was actually grateful to be gf, since it helped limit my decision making on what to eat (there are a ton of delicious choices-everything from snow crab legs to the most succulent prime rib). They have delicious exotic fresh juices and a dessert table that's easy to miss but impossible to forget. We had the tastiest sangria, jasmine rice pudding and flan, and felt great afterwards. If one of the chefs don't know if something is gf, they will find someone who does.
Very good buffet. Chef came out to give me a tour of what is gluten free and not. Awesome service! Great food! I didn't have any reaction afterwards. Tell them when paying your gluten issue, and they will make sure the chef comes to meet you.
We asked the wait staff about gluten free options and she brought us the chief! He not only walked us through the entire buffet talking to my sister and I but he made sure to ask if we had dairy issues or nut issues. He was clear about what was safe, stating that the Chinese food was not but if we wanted one of the Chinese dishes he would make it for us with gluten free tamari instead of soy sauce. We both found plenty of choices of great tasting food, both left stuffed to the gills, and best of all neither of us had issues later.
Many GF options and every chef knew for sure if an item was GF or not. I asked what foods were GF and they sent out a very knowledgable chef who took me on a tour of the buffet and explained precisely why or why not something had gluten. They go the extra mile to use xanthum gum when they can to offer more options! GF soups, tacos, dessert, sea food and meats. Stay away from Chinese food (soy sauce), pastas, creamy soups, and sausages. Fantastic experience, didn't feel limited by what I could eat.
