  1. There was one post asking if anyone had been but it never got a reply so I guess not. If you do go you may be the first to give a review...

    1. Bet bets for a Vegas-style buffet is Cafe Sierra in the Hilton Hotel Universal City or CIMA in Pacific Palms Resort in City of Industry.

      1. not exactly what you asked for, but might suit your needs:
        Fogo de Chao.

        unlimited food.
        hunks-o-dead animals until you are stuffed (carved at your table).
        terrific salad bar that includes good quality smoked salmon.

          I am also a big fan of Fogo de Chao in Beverly Hills. Most buffets are just a lot of so-so food. This is not only the best salad bar in Los Angeles but a steak and meat lovers all you can eat dream. Over 10 different carving items all carved table side. Great food in a classy setting, Great service too. Your plate will never be empty.

            should be noted that in addition to all sorts of hunks-o-beef, they also serve lamb and poultry

        2. Not been but I believe that one of the restaurants at Trump National has a lavish Sunday buffet which includes a carving station and champagne--presumably pricey though. You might also want to check what sort of buffet the restaurants at Terranea (there are 8 of them) might offer. RPV would be considered close to Torrance.

          1. You might want to check out Castaway in Burbank. I've never been, but it sounds like something that might suit your needs.
