Buffet items are extremely limited during breakfast during the week as compared to their weekend brunch. Breakfast during the week seems very slow and the waiting staff shows it.

Food horrible. Way over priced. Food cold. Waiter was nice, but food was just really bad. Was not happy at all. Me and kids really looking to eat some good food. And was not good. At all.

The buffet had a good variety of food. It looked spectacular but the food was just mediocre. The dim sum was the best out of the entire buffet. Worth trying once if you are in the area.

Overpriced for the type of food served, not much selection.

My first experience was in May when I had my daughter's wedding brunch. There were over 40 guests who stayed at the hotel and they had a great time eating and celebrating after the wedding. I have been there 3 times since then!

My wife, daughter, and I went for the dinner buffet on last Saturday night, 10/25. I made the reservation and the receptionist immediately acknowledged us and took us to a window table with some view. I am glad to have that reservation. The food is plenty and very nicely cooked. The lobster is great. The crabs, soup, desert. and some hot food are all good. I am not a desert person so I did not try much on it. The waiters and waitress' came to the table quite often to take away the plates and ask for anything we need. We asked for the hot tea and coffee many rounds, they not only no problem with it but also with great smiles. Overall it was a very good experience.

It was a little hard to leave. The check came quickly but then there was no one to take it. I waited about 15 minutes to pay and leave.
Otherwise very nice

Some of the foods were not fresh, especially for the Sushi. Also, the soup, that is not the kind of high quality soup we enjoy Saturday night offers.

The food quality and choice are no comparison to Saturday night's.

The food was good. The omelet guy screwed up my omelet by giving it to my buddy who put hot sauce all over it. I mean it was just me and my buddy and 2 omelet orders. Talk about short term memory issues. The waitress also never brought my wife the toast she had ordered. Overall it was nice and we had enjoyed our time but.... I will give them another chance, but just one

Food selection wasn't as robust as I thought for something that costs 55 per person. Sushi selection was a joke, only one soup selection, and very common entires. The pacific palms website was pretty much false advertising for the Cima restaurant. There was no whole pig, the shrimp cocktails were a sad handful of reject shrimp that no one wanted. I've been to other buffets that offered more for around 15-20 per person. Would not be coming here again.

Food and staff are great! Great location. You can a enjoy a good nice walk before or after dinner. My friend and I really enjoyed where we were seated. We could hear each other and there's enough space between tables, no need to walk sideways.

I spent over $300 with my family to enjoy a nice weekend dinner, food is great, but most seafood in the outside area, so we saw many fly on the top of the seafood and sushi, and no anyone to do something to keep the food clean, so we just eat the inside food only, but it will be too expensive with eating any seafood.

Definitely dressed up more than casual at this place. Everything was clean and freshly prepared. Great place for a celebratory brunch =)

Had a pair of granddads (young granddads) to treat for Father's Day Brunch and Cima is well regarded for its Saturday and Sunday buffets. We were impressed: great service, indoor and outdoor seating, an array of stations that has to be experienced - everything from the western standards (eggs, omelet station, bacon, sausage, carving station) to shucked fresh oysters and crab leg clusters, a crispy-skin roast pig, some Dim Sum and Cantonese Chinese standards - and on and on. A modest NV Domestic Bubbly, smoothies, coffee, tea, bubble tea - and then the desert stations. The view and weather were just fantastic.
Kids and extended families are welcome and common.

My family enjoy dining here. The food is good and the service is great too. My son highly recommend it to his friends!

The service was great. The menu not so great. Not much more on the menu than was served at the buffet. The food was prepared well and tasted good. No complaints there. I had been trying to make reservations for nearly two years. I really wanted Mother's Day but even though I check nearly three weeks in advance there were no tables available so I settled for Saturday. The menu must be much better on special days.

My experience with Cima's Sunday brunch was good. Only one thing, they didn't start on time.
We made appointment at 11:00am thru website and in their website said the brunch start at 10:30am
When we were there at 11:00am, the restaurant was not ready.
No one in the front for seat, no waiter or waitress, and food was not ready either.
I was very sure it has passed 11:00am already.

The limited food selection did not worth the $55 price tag. There was barely enough seafood. There was a limit of 1/2 lobster per serving. The fruit juice or smoothie are not boxed juices. The salad in the salad bar are stale. Not too much western food selection. Just a lot of Asian food. It really not worth the money.
