La vista has an attractive setting on the Marriott grounds, so we decided to give them a try. We reviewed the menu but were not enthralled. The server seemed to assume we would want the buffet. I looked at the buffet offerings, saw grouper and decided it was okay for me. My wife settled on the pasta bolognese because she could not justify paying the price for a buffet. We were both disappointed. My wife’s bolognese, was priced at over $30, and was terrible. We have never paid that much for bolognese anywhere, especially for bolognese with little to no beef in the sauce. My grouper from the buffet was swimming or drowning in some kind of sauce. Grouper is one of our favorite meals, but this one was awful. We were puzzled by the number of positive reviews. We can only surmise there are a lot of guests who are happy with large volumes of food rather than well prepared meals. For those, I say go at it. For others who want quality, I say go elsewhere.

We had the buffet and there was a very good selection of various types of food - make your own pasta, sushi, salad options, main cousrse meals, good desserts, soup, fruit, etc. The service was excellent and the restaurant was nicely decorated. Would definitely return and would recommend this restaurant.

The buffet is probably the best value on the menu. Very nice selection of food. The Filet was excellent as was the Pork Loin with a mushroom gravy. The Grouper was over cooked but I suppose that happens with fish sitting in a hot plate.

Great spot for a dinner with the family. The buffet provides everyone with the choice they would like the most. The service is very good and the food has always been very good as well. Its not inexpensive, but I think worth the price with all the variety you have to choose from.

We went for the Saturday evening lobster tail buffet. One in our party had a seafood allergy and not ordering the buffet was not an option. The prime rib was his option on the buffet and it may have been good if hot bit it was somewhat cold. The overall feeling from our diners was that the food was mediocre and not worth the $69 per person price tag. We would not rush back nor recommend.

The food was very good, but with some limited options. My Boyfriend and I enjoyed our meal, but would have liked to have more of a seafood option and maybe prime rib versus ham at the carving station. the build your own tacos was okay.
The salad table was very good with a lot of wonderful options, however; they seemed to run out quickly. The dinner show was very entertaining!

The server we had was not very good. We wanted to order off the menu rather than eat the buffet, and she pushed the buffet too much rather then providing us a menu.

When we were done, she brought us the check, but never asked us if we wanted to order desert. When we finally got a menu to order a desert, she said, I will have to charge you extra for desert since you didn't get the buffet, which was to be expected.

Food quality was average at best. The salad was small for the price that was paid.
