Went to check out the new SLS today and I was pretty disappointed in the property overall. I had gone today with the intention of trying the buffet, but luckily I asked to take a look inside before actually eating there.
There is a center island for desserts which looked decent, but the actual food service area was quite limited. It's essentially three sections and that's it. So imagine Rio Carnival World Buffet with just the Mexican section, Asian section, and that weird American hodgepodge section. That's the length of the food area. The food was not appealing at all and turnover was slow, so items were just sitting there.
I took a look around 3:20pm, as brunch was ending (4pm is switch to dinner) and nothing looked good. I went back at 4:30pm and the exact same dishes were still out. Even though they stayed charging dinner price 30 min ago, the staff had not yet changed to dinner dishes and showed no real hurry to make the change. There were no more than 15-20 people eating either time I checked.
Did anyone actually eat at the SLS Buffet today? Was it better than it looked?
