    I can get BOGO for either one on myVegas; which one do you think is better and why?

    Does either one have sushi as an offering at lunch?

    Both are good and pretty comparable. We usually get both on MyVegas and enjoy both of them. Both have sushi options, however I think Bellagio has a better selection. If you want crab legs, Aria would be the choice. They have both chilled and heated crab legs for lunch. Both have sliders that are good. I might have to give the dessert selection to Bellagio. If you want Curry or Hummus, Aria would be the choice. They also have a good Mexican station with tamales, and a good Chinese selection. All in all, I don't think you could go wrong with either. As far as food quality, I might give a slight nudge to Bellagio, it just depends on what kind of food you want.

    I have had dinner at both and they were pretty equal. Not sure if they have sushi at lunch. The buffet sushi is never that great anyway.

    Aria hands down. Bellagio's quality has been going down faster than a thai hooker.

    Aria used to suck and Bellagio was a lot better. They have reversed roles as of late. Bellagio has gone way downhill and Aria has greatly improved.

    Aria definitely has sushi at lunch and dinner. (I walked past it a few times.) I don't remember about Bellagio, since I don't eat it.

    Just got back from a 3 night Bellagio vacation and have to say that the Bellagio Buffet has slid down once again. Dinner was quite lackluster. The food didn't scream "eat me" it was just there. The selections are tired. Time for some new things and spiffier presentation. Aria just has the edge now. Brighter and fresher. And some more innovative food selections.

    Thanks for the info!! We've eaten at Bellagio before (a LONG time ago, though!) so I think we'll try Aria. Then we can walk over to Bellagio to tour the conservatory. :)

    I just ate at both of them yesterday and this answer is not even close. Its Aria by a mile. Bellagio is getting old and the food is just meeehhh. For its flagship property in MLife, its not every good. Aria is new, fresher, modern.

    I am biased as our mlife property of choice is Aria. But to be honest, tried both and found Aria nicer and the open air environment is relaxing.

    I would go for Aria. I like that better than Bellagio. And last time I was there, they had sushi (I didn't get any so can't vouch for the flavor).
