Echoing an earlier review, my wife has celiacs and we never go to buffets but this place really knows how to do it. The chef met with us and showed us everything that is and isn’t GF, and they can prepare it in the back by request. Thank you Aria!
Had brunch at Aria buffet. Options for GF diners include omelette station, fruits, salad, seafood, deli meats and some GF desserts such as gelato and GF tiramisu (clearly labeled as GF). Other reviews mention that the chef will walk you through the buffet and let you know what is GF.
I am Celiac and I own one of the few gluten free restaurants in the US. As a chef I am very aware of how hard finding safe gluten free food can be. This buffet was exceptional. The chef took me around the entire selection of food. They have a dedicated fryer, so many items such as chips and many fried items are available (usually off limits). The chef stated the restaurant is geared to provide as many gluten free items as they can. WELL DONE!!!!!
We went to the Buffett based on what we read here on FindMeGlutenFree- we took a tour with the chef and was NOT convinced they were serious about making sure items were GF. The chef pointed to items saying those over there are GF but those over on the end are not (very non-specific) - we not only were confused which were GF we didn't feel confident that he knew! Items should be well marked so not to make a mistake- after our tour my daughter just didn't feel confident she would get a safe meal but for the $35 price there were not enough choices to make it worth the risk. I'm giving 3 stars because we really didn't eat there so giving them the benefit of the doubt.
We asked the concierge desk about gluten free options and they made a call head to the chef who was willing to accommodate our allergies. We were met right away by Chef Ray who took the time to walk us through the entire buffet and let us know what we could and could not have and even made a pizza and fried rice upon request of my son that had no gluten and no dairy. The buffet had many items we could eat and they even offered GF bread and desserts
