Payard Patisserie & Bistro - Caesars Palace Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews

After a great 3 day stay in Vegas, I could truly say one of the highlights was eating at Payards. I ate there for breakfast two mornings in a row. The wait staff was lovely, the food was excellent, and although moderately priced, the quality exceeded my expectations. To tell you the truth, I enjoyed every meal I had in Vegas for the aforementioned reasons, but Payard's breakfasts were primo!! Payard's should be congratulated for service and quality (that includes the chef)!

After waiting longer than we should have, first encounter with our server was strange. He didn't greet us, just said "what do you want to order?" Quiche was above average, eggs benny served over croissant was good.

We made the mistake of going to Payard the day after we had breakfast at Bouchon in the Venetian. Payard failed massively in comparison. The most disappointing part is that Payard was the same price as Bouchon, for reasons unbeknownst to me.
If you're in the market to spend $60 on breakfast for two, go to Bouchon.
Payard is not a bad restaurant. The food was good, but the space is cramped, the service is rushed and the ambience is dark and not a place you want to linger long in.

This comment is uncharacteristically negative for me but this last visit, after many other superb meals over the years was a disappointment. First of all the quality of the food at Payard is always superb. All menu items are cooked as they are ordered and breads and pastries always fresh, never frozen, so I was surprised that the croissant on which the eggs Benedict were served was not even room temperature. And as I reached the ham slice it was actually cold. Only the eggs were hot, but as time went on they also became cold. The reason for this was obvious when I felt the plate and discovered it was itself ice cold. When the busser removed it he felt it and agreed that it was still very cold and would tell the chef. "They never warm the plates," the server later said when I mentioned it to her. She apologized, graciously offering another menu item.
I'm not one of those people who ask that his plates be warmed so I'll probably just go elsewhere. A shame, really, because we really love the food and service at Payard at Caesar's Palace.

We chose this restaurant for location and hours - we needed a location for business lunch in Caesars near conference center. This is perfectly situated at entrance to the meeting rooms and takes reservations so that was a plus. We were seated promptly and served immediately. The menu is fairly tight but well executed for classics such as quiche and pressed sandwiches. The server was attentive as our meeting went on for a bit after the dishes were cleared. While a bit pricey for what it was, the quality was good and service good so i'd recommend for this kind of meeting. The adjacent counter provides coffee drinks, sandwiches, crepes and pastries for a quicker service and is quite good as well.

We had the lobster eggs benedict which everyone raves about. We were not disappointed. It was indeed "divine". Service was good but since it was Father's Day, they were quite busy so our order was a bit of a "wait". I asked for a side of fruit salad but our server said that they were out of it,. However, the lady (another wait staff) suggested that she can manage to whip up some fresh berries for us which I truly appreciated. The mixture of black berries, blue berries and strawberries were all very fresh and very sweet. Overall, it was great!

About 2 years ago, (last time I visited Las Vegas) I went here for brunch with a large group and the food was excellent. I kind of made it my mission to eat here again if I ever found myself in Las Vegas. Although the food was still really good, I found the service sparse and very rushed. Our server was polite but succinct and hovering a lot to check on our meal status. Pretty much just to clear our plates right away and gave us our bill right after. I figured it would be busy also, so I made reservations here and even then, we waited at least 20+ minutes for a table while some walk-ins were seated (they literally walked in right in front of us) first. Was there any point in making a reservation then?

Perfectly prepared salmon eggs Benedict on an open croissant - everything soft, crisp, rich and lush in all the right places.
Really nice Louvre and George V desserts - pretty to look at, and delicate layers and flavors made for happy eating.
Service was warm, hospitable, professional and efficient.
The decor is appealing, pretty, interesting, and approachable. Fun to watch the cook at work, too.
Make reservations and be patient, and you'll be rewarded with a lovely casual experience.
Good brunch spot
While Payard is by no means inexpensive, it provides a very satisfying breakfast/brunch experience. I love their lobster eggs benedict on a fresh and flaky croissant. I don't even like croissants since they eusually taste like overbuttered cardboard to me, but theirs truly melt in your mouth. I recall the last time I went, they offered a variety of bellinis that I enjoyed. This time, it seemed those were off the menu in favor of the ubiquitous mimosa. Would like to see the passionfruit/blood orange bellinis return. Brunch was about $70 with tip (and we didn't drink alcohol), so, like I said, you gotta pay to play, but that's the way it goes in Vegas!
Seating Hostess Nightmare
I have been to this location at least 10 times. Since it was a special occasion, I made a reservation. My party arrived 5 minutes early and I let the girl know. She told us without a smile on her face, that it was not 9:30 yet. I was so embarrassed. We were seated 15 minutes later. The rest of the meal was spot on. Our waiter was excellent. The seating hostess brought our bill at the end of the meal. She was rude once again. She practically threw the bill holder on the table and walked away. I spoke to the manager and let her know.

Lovely breakfast. Breakfast hot plates are freshly prepared in the indoor dining area. Tasty omelettes are custom filled, large and accompanied by a side green salad. There's a choice of three pastries for the breakfast pastry basket. The croissants are huge and delicious, although lacking a flaky crust. Coffee is very good and service is speedy and responsive. It's all very nice and carries a price tag to match.
A Real Gem!
A rare find, well worth spending a little extra for a very classy breakfast/lunch! The Steak and Eggs was absolutely fabulous, the best ever. The steak was huge and beautifully prepared over a bed of delicious potatoes. It rivals some of the best steaks you'll get at dinner, at most places. A bit expensive, however: $87. for breakfast for two--but it was Steak and Eggs, after all. We'd definitely return on our next visit to Caesars.
Hit and miss
We ate there 3 weeks ago and everything was perfect .the quiche I had was outstanding, however upon returning last Sunday we both got the 2 quiches and they both were dry. The pastries we took home were excellent and reasonably priced by vegas standards .
Teriffic find for Breakfast
Great spot for a breakfast meeting. Try finding a quite spot for breakfast in just about any Hotel, coffee shop at best.
This place was had some great food, I ended up here twice during my stay.
You cant go wrong with anything on the menu.
Fun - But Needs a Little Focus on Service
A very beautiful setting - intimate but you will not feel crowded. Two of us came for breakfast. Server was pleasant but didn't really seem engaged therefore - missed we wanted 2 coffees instead he served 1. When asked if we wanted water we said, "yes" - and he brought 1 not 2 glasses. French bread served with breakfast was warm and accompanying butter was divine. Egg dishes were good. Fruit cup was layered with beautiful fresh berries. Croissants are fresh and delicious as one would expect. A nice location to change your pace from the wild life at Caesars Palace!
Best Breakfast dining at Caesars.
The Lobster Benedict is a must have !! It is delicious and prepared perfect. Everything is very good on the menu. We have eaten here many times and every item on the menu is worth trying.
Coffee is very good here. This restaurant is small so you definitely need to make a reservation on Open Table, it is busy during the breakfast hours and without a reservation you will have a 45 minute wait.
Thanksgiving at Payard
We though we'd have brunch at Payard and then dinner later in the day. Who knew that Payard would be offering a complete Thanksgiving meal. The selection of turkey meat, the stuffing, mashed potatoes and to begin with the caesar salad with a poached egg - and the pecan tart for desert - delicious, every bite.
My companion had the salmon with cider au jus and braised turnip and butternut squash - her plate was empty before mine.
Going to use the vegetable technique next time we have squash.
Almost forgot - making a reservation gets you seated quickly and the service on a busy day was spot on - efficient and professional.
