Very accommodating and great staff. I wanted salmon without any fat and it was cooked to perfection.

The New Year’s Eve buffet was great- enjoyed the carving station and chilled seafood options as well as the sushi. Of course, the dessert options were plentiful and everyone I tried was perfect.

Took my family for Christmas Day dinner buffet at first seating 4:00 pm. Most of the food was not set out yet. What was out did not have serving utensils. Food was cold. On a more positive note servers were very attentive. We will not come again. We will return to the Hyatt buffet instead

Great place to have lunch poolside. The soup salad and sandwich combos were great.

Not much of a buffet selection on Saturday night, unless all you like is prime rib and pasta. Friday nights are great with seafood buffet.

Service was attentive and fast
Food was dreadful
Burgers arrived minutes after ordering and clearly precooked and kept under a warmer
Seafood buffet looked unattractive and neglected
Bar unable to make a dry martini!
Don't eat here unless you arrive late and ate too tired to go out (our reason)

Cava is very convenient after the Desert Town Hall speaker series. The service is very good and the wine list is respectable.
I do not like the shrunken menu and liked it much better when there were more choices such as on the luncheon menu.
