Eating in Las Vegas

We're just back from Las Vegas...Overall I was disappointed with the food...but there were definitely some high points...
The first night we were there we went to the buffet at the Bellagio - at $30 a piece we were disappointed. The sushi bar and the desserts were great as were all of the soups...but the rest of the offerings were pretty standard and dried out. We did a breakfast buffet at Harrahs, which was just ok but the coffee was absolutely terrrrrrible...coffee was better at the Carnegie Deli but the service was awful.
We did a lunch at Emeril's in the MGM Grand, which was very good. My husband's andouille burger was way overdone, my oyster po boy was sensational.
Breakfast at the Paris Buffet however was sooo very good, I only wish I had two stomach so I could have eaten more. Also at Paris we had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi, the food was out of this world but it was very very noisy and the evening's special was sold out by 7pm. We had the Chicken Liver Mousse appetizer and it was heavenly...We had planned to do sushi at Benihana but had a big plate of nachos at Margaritaville as a late lunch and had no room for sushi!
We'll be going back year after next...any thoughts.
