Cima at Pacific Palms Resort Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We love this restaurant. The ambiance is one of the main reasons why we come here. It's a beautiful place, spacious and not tight with tables right beside you. The food variety is very good. I can never get to try everything because I always go for my comfort foods. When there is some kind of an event to celebrate, this is the first place I suggest to go to. My kids love it there too. We like that we can eat and sit at the table for a couple hours and chat without feeling rushed to get out. We've gone there so often that we've come to know the staff now. They are so pleasant and helpful.
Some people claim that Vegas has great Buffets.... I would say that if you enjoy Asian foods, the Saturday night buffet at this place beats any Vegas buffet. I must had about 10 lobster tails, 12 fresh blended juice (I mean mango, strawberry, guava, watermelon, pineapple-spinach, etc...), shrimp, dim-sum, sashimi, raw oysters, snow crab legs, and ... yes... deserts. I don't think any of the dishes are unique to this place but I feel that everything was well above par in quality, freshness, and taste. My only problem was that I ate so much lobster tail that I only had room for one Macaroon!
We went for All you can eat buffet at 8PM, Lobster was not out even not that many people there (50) . we wait for them to make more. They made so little, not enough for second round. By 8:45 they stop cooking lobsters. I just be able to get 2 lobster only even though I want to get more. No server or name tags at smoother booth, we get drink by fruit colorst. Paid $120 for 2!!!! way overprice
I have been to this restaurant before and this time to dine with my guest overseas.
The foods have been more improved especially Sashimi.
Other beef and pork(whole baby pork BBQ) were average and some smell...but acceptable.
Guest numbers were not so many...maybe the cost per person is rather expensive.
Four of us ordered 4 bottle of beers and the buffet we paid $250 including tip..
We have been to Cima many times. This was our third time for the East-West Buffet ahnd this was not up to the standards of the previous times we have been.
We have also been to the Sunday Brunch several times and will try that again, because it has always been great. We will see what happens.
Let's start with the positive. The food was delicious and fresh. The service was prompt and friendly. The variety was there for what a brunch requires, from breakfast to lunch (American style). Then there were a few items of seafood, sushi, and dim sum. All were good because they tasted recently made. The negative is the false advertisement in the menu for Sunday Brunch. There was a smoothie bar but there wasn't any whole coconut or cut fruit. Did not see the section for South of the Border and the Bread Station was lacking (only danish and muffin). In conclusion, all that was served was good but the assortment was lacking.
I miss the old Cima. The food is decent but not that great. Korean ribs were not even Grilled Fresh but was brought out to be heated on a warmer. they had only 1 roast pig that is gone by 7:30 and if you missed it, that's It! the peking duck was delicious. other than that, I don't think there is anything memorable. there are oysters and crab legs and lobster -so just eat that to get your money's worth. I like the smoothie section and the chocolate fountain station . They advertised paella on the menu but didn't find that in the buffet. I just like the place for the ambiance. If you have guests to impress, it's a classy place with a variety of food.
I love the brunch at Cima. I always go there for all my special occasions and always recommend it when in a crunch. The selection of food is great and the ambiance is spectacular. My family and I usually spend at least 3-hours for brunch because the atmosphere is so relaxing and it's nice to sit and chat and head up to the buffet at our leisure. My kids love it too. The place offers free wifi which allows the kids to play on their tablets while my husband and I are deep in conversation.
The variety of offerings have reduced over the years. So has the price. Years ago, we had to wait for a table on Sundays. This time, most of the tables were empty. Perhaps it's the economy. Compared to about 3 years ago, they've eliminated the fresh juice bar, the outdoor grill station and the kid's station. We were hoping to find items that we can't get in any typical breakfast place, but saw bacon, eggs & sausage, which we completely ignored.
Their steamed crab legs, prime rib and sushi were all fresh and tasty. We enjoyed the low noise level and took advantage of the slow pace to enjoy our brunch. Overall, disappointed with the variety for $30. per person, but did enjoy the view, the smoothies and a leisurely brunch. Might go back.
We could not have been happier with Reuben, the manager and the servers. The food was excellent and the service was even better! We stayed the weekend and ate at the East meets West buffet Saturday night and had brunch Sunday morning! The snow crab and peking duck were amazing!
