Absolutely love Trader Joe's! The prices are affordable and the return policy is awesome (if you don't like the product, bring it back and they'll refund you). Favorites: Frozen Indian meals, frozen chocolate croissants, pre-packaged salad packs, and quinoa.

Not bad for a buffet in Vegas. Lunch price comes with free beverages (coffee, tea, juice, & soda).

Burgers aren't life changing, expected more from Gordon Ramsay. Steak fries with garlic aioli were yummy.

Love coming here for the lunch specials and weekly specials. Less than $10 for spaghetti and meatballs, Italian salad and fresh bread!

Come for the view, the overpriced food isn't worth it. Service is great though. Pictures taken by the photographers are pricey ($40+)

Enjoyed our 4 day stay at ARIA! When you first enter the room, the blinds pull open and the TV turns out and plays music. Everything is electronically controlled. The bed (especially pillows) is comfy and the view is spectacular. ARIA Resort is cleaner than all the other hotels in Vegas and the spa ($30/day) is worth the upgrade. We enjoyed Sage Restaurant and Cirque du Soleil Zarkana.

Quiet restaurant that's perfect for a intimate dinner. The service was impeccable, shoutout to our server Dicky who was very attentive and offered great suggestions. They even split up our meal onto two plates so we could share. Improvements could be made on the tenderness of the lamb and hanger steak.
