If you want a Vegas experience close to home, this casino has it. Took my wife for her Birthday and she love it. The Smell, the ambiance is like going to a High end Vegas casino. Keep up the good work!!

La seul chose c’est que j’avais prise une réservation en ligne pour être certaine et quand on est arrivé la fille à l’accueil a dit qu’elle avait pas la réservation et n’était pas très chaleureuse. Disons que ça mal commencé.

J'ai été malade pendant 2 jours - le mélange de légumes baignait dans l'huile et les légumes étaient mous et les saveurs étaient moins qu'adéquat. Le meilleur du souper était sans aucun doute le chaudrée de palourde. La purée de pommes de terre était trop liquide - du Pablum de bébé - le saumon était sec, le toast beef trop cuit. Valur qualité prix ne fait pas bon ménage.

Food is great. They have the soup bar where you can choose your broth, meat and noodles. Or you can just have some of their awesome cream of broccoli. My steak was cooked like I asked and everything was delicious. Service was also great.

Pour le prix ca aurait du etre beaucoup mieux. Il y as des buffets chinois a moitier prix qui sont aussi bon si pas meilleur avec plus de choix. Les moules etait pas fraiches, ne sentais pas bon et seches, tres beau bar a dessert, excellent vin a prix raisonnable $30-$60 la bouteille, excellent service mais pas bon pour le buffet.

Le serveur n’était pas tres attentif. Pas une seule fois il est venu demander si tout était à notre satisfaction. Quand est venu le temps de payer je lui ai remis deux coupons pour appliquer sur la facture et cela n’a pas été fait. Il s’est excusé et m’a dit de les utiliser à une autre occasion. Très décevant. L’an passé à la même date pour un anniversaire, on avait servi un petit dessert cette année rien, encore plus décevant.

We were seated very quickly once we arrived. The food was very good and not badly priced. The batter on the calamari did fall off easily but that's very minor. The salad bar is well worth the $5 charge as there's lots to choose from. We both ordered the pepper steak meals and both steaks were cooked to what we asked and the tempura shrimp was excellent! We had the creme brulee for desert and it was very creamy and light. The actual service was a little slow and the 3 different waiters that served us weren't the most friendly.

Pleasantly surprised with the BBQ ribs!! Enjoyed them a lot. Not a lot of choices for a buffet but the food was good. The red velvet chocolate cake was nice as well as the macaroons. Service with water and plates was very good.

Ils n'ont pas voulu nous asseoir à une table avant que tous les invités soient présents. On ne pouvait pas non plus attendre au bar. Le service est trop expéditif. La poutine que nous avons commandée était bonne, mais énorme. Je ne retournerais pas à ce restaurant.

When I reserved for my group, I requested if it was similar to le Montreal buffet and the hostess told me yes
To our surprise the buffet hot tables were 1/3 the size of Montreal casino and the selection was poor. Not at all the same.
I requested seafood in the buffet and the hostess told me there was, which was false.
I will not return to Banco buffet.
Also the layout we seemed to be in the service way from plate removals to the tables.
It was all a mishmash of mixtures in the hotplates.
No personal service like In Montreal for carving the meats.
I did not seee any mussels which was advertised online menu buffet.
It was just disappointing.
No pizzas
No coque saint jaques
No breaded shrimp etc
It needs a lifting to compare to Montreal

Soup & salad Mon-Thurs . The food is left out for too long. Much is old or dried out. The shrimp are served raw. Some soups not hot. Shrimp do not cook as needed in soup . I believe this is counter to the Health Code. No one is checking or cleaning.

We really enjoyed the buffet, very good. This was our first time dining at the casino restaurants.
There were many selections on the buffet table and we couldn't try them all. The service was excellent. Our server made sure to check on us often if we needed anything.
We had received a dining gift card at Christmas, and this is what we used to pay. Our server recommended the buffet, and we agreed with her, since it
was a Friday, and there was a buffet that night. The menu choices to pick from, were not many, therefore the buffet was a good option.
Thank you, thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there at Banco Bistro.

We are there for the brunch. Unfortunately there is no brunch for Monday. But there is an unlimited soup and salad bar for $11, which is just as wonderful. There are 4 kinds of soup, lots of things you can add to the soup, e.g. noodle, meat ball, chicken, etc. The Salad bar is good, too. Good value.

To whom it may concern
I have been to the Banco Bistro many many times. It is a relaxing atmosphere to have dinner. I had reservations and I was seated almost immediatley. Our server was excellent and was courteous and polite. I speak english and this has never been a problem with any of your servers. The buffet food was good and hot and was full at all times. Your desert selection is good but it would be nice if you could
add cheesecake to your menu. Your establishment is very clean and inviting.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

Usually a good experience, albeit a little expensive. Unfortunately the restaurant was overwhelmed, so the service was pleasant but extremely slow. We had to ask several times for basic things (coffee, drinks, menus to order eggs Benedict).

Notre réservation était pour 13h00 nous avons attendu en ligne jusqu'à 13h30 avant qu'on nous amène à notre table, alors que la salle à diner était presque vide.
Pour la nourriture, la qualité est de moins en moins là et les prix sont de plus en plus élevés. Manque de raffinement, aucune sauce pour l'agneau, œuf Bénédict froid, pas de càpre pour le saumon. Tout le monde a été assis en même temps donc longue file d'attente pour le buffet. Nous avons attendu que la file diminue avant d'aller au buffet avec nos mères de 92 et 96 , ans, mais rendu là plusieurs assiettes du buffet était vide, miette de saumon fumé, pas de citron, pas d'huile et vinaigre pour la salade que des sauces épaisses pas très appétissante. Ce qui distinguait les restos du Casino Lac Lemay était la qualité de la nourriture. Mais maintenant c'est comme partout et c'est très décevant. Si vous ne voulez pas perdre la clientèle pour le Casino d'Ottawa, SVP continuer à vous distinguer avec la qualité.

Je le recommande durant l’année car le prix est bon, mais pas pour la fête des mères car le prix est trop élevé pour le mème buffet à peu de chose prêt. Je m’attendais à un WoW vu le prix plus élevé mais j’étais devant presque le même buffet lorsque j’y suis aller 3 semaines avant.

Food was bland and cold. Choice was limited. Roast beef was very tough and fatty. Hubby was not impressed with sea food choices. Nothing exciting to make me recommend to friends. I wasted so much money on what was supposed to be an amazing date night.
