Shavuot is recognized as a festival by all branches of Judaism, Orthodox, Reform, Conserviative. However, of the three pilgrimage festivals, it is the most frequently ignored. (Despite the good food, since cheesecake is a traditioinal food for Shavuot.) I have been to Orthodox synagogues where hardly anyone showed up for Shavuot, and I have been to Reform synagogues that were crowded on Shavuot. Even so it is probable that more Orthodox Jews take Shavuot seriously.
The tradition is to eat dairy foods during Shavuot. In North America, cheesecakes are popular.
The custom is not to pray all night, but to study all night. Shavuot is considered to be the anniversary of the Giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.
