Staying at the Aria and would love to get people's thoughts on restaurants other than Julian Serrano and Sage (both of which we ate at and enjoyed last visit).

  1. Michael Mina's American Fish is very good. I know there are several posts on the board for the restaurant.

    American Fish
    3730 N Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89115

    1. Although not inside Aria proper, I recommend the PUB in Crystals -- good, interesting beer and a large bar menu -- and Mozen and Mandarin Bar in the Mandarin Oriental. Can't recommend Sage highly enough. And wasn't a fan of the Aria buffet -- I thought it was totally fine but nothing out of the ordinary.

      1. Rather than starting a new thread, I thought perhaps people could suggest casual affordable lunch at or near Aria spa on a Monday. The Aria spa doesn't have a restaurant or food service, so where could we eat nearby (within a 5 minute walk from the spa entrance) that's quick and cheap (under $15-20 all in) but still really tasty? A view would be a bonus, but not necessary.

          If you don't mind leaving Aria, the pizza joint in the Cosmopolitan is pretty darn good. A slice and a drink is under $10. We took our pizza and drinks back into the lobby area across from Comme Ca and people watched while we ate. There were four of us and all enjoyed their little slice of pizza heaven. The place is counter service, no frills, but good pizza!

          1. re: Philber

            Thanks. We were planning to eat that pizza on our arrival date if we can't check in early to our rooms at Cosmo. Just in case, how far is the walk from Aria spa to the Cosmo hotel restaurants?

            1. re: Food Tourist

              It's about a 10 minute walk from the entry of the Aria to the 3rd floor of the Cosmopolitan, at least the way we went - out to the strip, up the stairs, across the walkway and up the escalator.

              1. re: Philber

                Thanks! It's so hard to figure out distances in Vegas even if two hotels seem side by side or across the street!

          2. re: Food Tourist

            the greek place is the cosmo had a $20.11 lunch special for a 3 course meal - just be aware it takes a long time (they try to make up their money by getting you to buy lots of drinks) but if you stick with n/a drinks you should be happy overall

            1. re: Dapuma

              Thanks! They have a location in Montreal so might pass in favour of a U.S. "chain". (We're from Toronto).

            2. re: Food Tourist

              For instance, could we eat lunch on a Monday at China Poblano or Julian Serrano for under $30 all in? Or is there a lovely hotel tea room serving Afternoon Tea on Mondays with scones and finger sandwiches and petits fours for under $35? Is the $30 tea at Four Seasons amazing and worth a visit even though far from Aria spa?

                1. re: drkaufman528

                  I know it's close to the Aria, but MO tea is very expensive. I think I read $40.

                2. re: Food Tourist

                  I think either of those would work quite nicely; I did Julian Serrano for lunch the last time I was up there thanks to some F&B credit at Aria and had a lovely time. You may also wish to consider the $20.11 lunch special at Estiatorio Milos inside Cosmopolitan.

                  1. re: JK Grence the Cosmic Jester

                    Thanks! We may actually schlep up to Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace for lunch.

              1. Related to Aria. Any views or opinions on Union?
