    ARIA has one of the most diverse and outstanding restaurant options in Las Vegas. As one of the newer hotels on the strip, ARIA consciously decided to keep most of the restaurants off the casino floor and together on the second floor. They also leaned in on the foodie and fine dining crowds in Vegas, as the majority of their 20 restaurants cater to a more upscale crowd.

    That said, ARIA is one of our favorite hotels to stay, with the proximity to amazing dining one of its strongest selling points. Whether you are looking for high-end Mexican, Thai, French, Pizza, American, Steak, Seafood, or Asian, ARIA has an option that is top of the class.

    If you are looking for celebrity chefs, it features some of the most accoladed, if not as well-known. Jean George, Michael Mina, Shawn McClain, Mario Carbone, & Julian Serrano lend their famous names and culinary excellence to the Aria food scene.

    Yet, if you’re looking for dining deals, Aria isn’t the first place we think of, but with the addition of the Proper Eats Food Hall, Aria now offers more fast-casual dining than ever.

    Las Vegas Dining, Elevated

    ARIA excels at providing amazing, high-end restaurants that fit nicely into the expected cost of a high-end meal. They have something for every taste and a seemingly complete array of our favorite cuisines.

    Starting with the steakhouse, they have the pedigree. Jean-Georges opened Prime in Bellagio and became the king of the Vegas steakhouse. His namesake steakhouse at ARIA puts a spin on the classic steakhouse and offers up the finest meat (including Genuine Kobe A5) and many other outstanding cuts. In addition, most come with delectable sauces and sides. This is one of the best steakhouses in Vegas and possibly in the world.

    CATCH offers fresh seafood and delectable Sushi to the Vegas Strip. And while the food stands up on its own, this is one of the most Instagramable restaurants in the world. The garden arches that lead you into the restaurant transform you into a magical garden, with flowers and fairy lights greeting you. Every item is plated to perfection and the drinks all scream for you to take a picture before tasting. This is a celebrity hot-spot, so you never know who you will catch photobombing your next picture.

    Carbone brings this favorite New York Italian concept to the Vegas Strip. Carbone brings an old-school 1920’s vibe with modern, tasty courses. This will bring your back to a time when showmanship and tableside service was expected. These classic dishes are elevated to create masterful dishes like the Lobster Fra Diavolo, Chicken Scarpariello, Veal Parmesan and Octopus Pizzaiolo.

    Bardot Brasserie showcases Michael Mina’s considerable talent with an ambitious French cuisine that will bring you back for more. Whether you’re in the mood for French classics like escargot or a spin on Surf ‘n’ Turf with foie gras, this menu will not leave you disappointed. This is also one of my top brunch spots on the strip but only opens early on the weekend. If you do brunch, don’t miss the hearth-baked quiche, Maine Lobster Scramble, or the out of this world French Toast.

    Blossom redefines the Chinese restaurant in Vegas and brings unique flavors to the strip. Javier’s elevates the traditional Mexican fare. Julian Serranos brings tapas & sangria to another level. Lemongrass offers authentic Thai flavors in reimagined ways. And Salt & Ivy offers classic American brunch and breakfast fares with patio views.

    Types of Restaurants

    I love having options and ARIA has plenty. I like to try multiple concepts and don’t want to feel like I’m just eating the same meal re-packaged. ARIA has nearly every type of cuisine covered and each concept has something unique that makes each meal feel special.

    Even better, every restaurant can stand on it’s own as a top option on the strip. They have done a really nice job in ensuring that you really get a world-class experience throughout the resort and the restaurants live up to that lofty expectation.

    NEW IN 2023: Proper Eats Food Hall 

    Proper Eats Food Hall in Aria now offers some of the best fast-casual eats on the strip

    If we had one complaint with ARIA’s selection of restaurants, it was they had too few moderately priced or quick options. While the ARIA Patisserie has great pastries and quick bites and Burger Lounge offers another affordable option, it didn’t have the depth of possibilities of The Cosmopolitan or the number of budget options like Caesars.

    That just changed! Proper Eats Food Hall has replaced the Aria Buffet & offers a wide variety of fast, casual options. The food hall concept is insanely popular & the options at Aria now make it one of the premier food destinations in all of Vegas.

    Most Instagram-able Restaurants

    CATCH may be the most Instagram-able restaurant on the strip. As you walk through a tunnel of flowers, fairy lights, and beautiful areas to stop and take a picture, you’ll quickly realize this isn’t your run-of-the-mill restaurant.

    The beauty extends to the dishes and drinks, each screaming to be photographed. And that’s a theme at ARIA restaurants… They are beautiful, from the plates to the cocktails, to the unique settings.

    Celebrity Chefs

    Everything has more glitz in Vegas and that goes for the restaurants. Celebrity chefs are all the rage and ARIA has a tremendous stable of America’s favorite culinary experts. Jean George, Michael Mina, Shawn McClain, Mario Carbone, & Julian Serrano all lend their considerable talent to their restaurants in ARIA.

    The rising star of the ARIA stable is James Beard Winner Shawn McClain who brings his Chicago style to the strip. Sage is one of our favorite restaurants in the world and Five50 Pizza Bar brings a unique spin on the pizza pie.

    Mario Carbone imports his classic New York Italian style in his namesake Carbone. This is one of the most popular concepts in NYC and keeps with a trend of bringing world-class, successful concepts to the strip from all over the world.

    Jean-Georges Vongerichten is one of the pioneers of the Vegas Strip steakhouse, building PRIME at Bellagio into the steakhouse that everyone tried to beat when Bellagio opened. With his namesake steakhouse in ARIA, he takes more chances from his classic concept while offering the finest beef on the planet to those willing to doll out the dollars.

    Michael Mina and Julian Serrano are some of the most famous of the celebrity chefs and each continues to up their game. Bardot is my favorite restaurant in the ARIA family and a classic example of the brilliance of Michael Mina.

    Our Recommendation: We Love ARIA Restaurants

    ARIA has one of the best stables of restaurants in Vegas or in the world. We believe every concept is high-quality and recommended. We have personally visited almost every restaurant on the list, which is one of the reasons ARIA is one of our go-to-hotels in Vegas.

    With the new Proper Eats Food Hall, Aria closed its biggest gap in becoming the culinary king of Vegas. The breadth of options & budgets puts Aria on par with The Cosmopolitan.

    Sage is our top pick in a very competitive contest for Best of ARIA, but the combination of the unique takes on classic dishes and the outstanding and hard-to-find cocktail list puts this at the top of the list for us at ARIA.

    ARIA has one of the top restaurant line-ups and is our favorite resort for dining in our Vegas Strip rankings for 2023. In addition, it is our most likely resort to book for any trip in 2023.
