Bar Masa
Restaurant @ Aria Resort & Casino
"Vegas Vivant"
I found this restaurant to be superb. Finally, a restaurant on the strip that gives you an experience! I am so sick of all show and no go! Don't be deterred if it's not packed because it's not for everyone. I'm indecisive and my wonderful waitress made it easy on me - just tell her how much I want to spend! Genius! When you go to a restaurant of high caliber, I'd rather the chef chose something for me and that's exactly what they did. You can set a price you want to spend per person, they ask you what you don't like and they bring out dishes until you hit that price. Ours was $150 per person and I was stuffed before the final few courses came out. Loved all the chef selections. The sashimi with the truffle on it was divine. Melts in the mouth. The dishes were clean, fresh, made of quality ingredients and inventive. I enjoyed the ambience, the somm, my waitress and the constant attention from the manager. Nothing to complain about. If you like sushi/sashimi and you want an elevated experience, this is the place. Romantic, catching up with friends or business - it caters all. As a Las Vegas local, this is one of the better restaurants on the strip.
