    Hi all, I am going to Vegas in November and staying at ARIA. Wondering what their buffet is like? I see it says they have crab legs, but not sure what those would be like in a buffet setting. Thoughts? Or what have your experiences been like if you have been there?

    Been there 3 times. First time ok, second and third time it was great. Great selection of fresh dishes. A little pricey but I felt like it was worth it.

    Have had The Buffet at the Aria seven times. All have been very good. We did have a stay at the Aria for five nights that included a buffet for two for each of the days...by the end of the stay we were swearing we'd never eat at another buffet...until our next trip. Very happy with the selections at the carving station and a very nice dessert selection. Well worth a try!

    Been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner (not all in the same day).....IMO, lunch is the best bang for the buck.....you can try getting in prior to the change over for lunch as save a few $ and still get breakfast items and lunch items....my experience was foods that are supposed to be cold or chilled are that and hot items are indeed hot when served....and the d├ęcor is very bright with a view to the outside....

    We ate there last February using comps from MyVegas. I guess it was all the hype we read before, but I was a little disappointed. The wife was excited about the crab legs but they turned out to be small and a lot of work.

    DW and I ate there the first week of September, she loved it! I thought it was good, but the bar had been set by Bellagio a couple of days before. The food is fresh, temperature appropriate, and tasty. They had a wonderful truffle penne pasta. The one thing I noticed was that there was no fish to speak of, and quite the selection of Asian food. You must try the orange sorbet!!!! You will never look at typical sherbet the same way again.

    While I've only been to PH and Paris buffets on the strip in the past, Aria's was far better than both of them in terms of quality, freshness and variety. I was there for lunch and they had decent snow crab legs both steamed and chilled. I agree it's bright, which is also way better than the Spice Market basement at PH.

    We ate there at the end of September for breakfast and it was just ok. To be honest, I enjoyed breakfast at Spice Market at Planet Hollywood better

    Ate there for dinner a year ago. Food was good but service was lousy. Both husband and I had Ice tea to drink. Server never came around for refills or take away plates. It was not that busy. Our server was standing around bsing with another server. I left no tip. I always leave a tip unless the service is abysmal. Needless to say, it was abysmal.

    Buffet was very disappointing in September.
