    Sutra (Asian) for the menu rather than hibachi, Italian gets good reports but haven't been there myself.

    Sea Flirt for breakfast is something not a lot of people know about and has a great alternative breakfast menu to the buffet.

    Is it she that has breakfast now or the other one, names is escaping me, the seafood in the spot of the old Asian restaurant? Waves or something like that.

    I believe Steve meant to say Sea Flirt for breakfast unless something has changed recently. Also, I believe the intention was to make this a premier only restaraunt for breakfast. I do not know if this has been implemented yet.

    I would strongly urge at least one visit to check it out. It has a very nice menu and it was really relaxing to be serverd instead of the self service buffet.

    I left it out of my trip report. Not sure how, since it seemed like I covered everything. We didn’t realize there was different food on the two buffet sides. So we had no bacon, sausage, or scrambled eggs until the last day.

    I am really looking forward to reading an "update report". It will be interesting to hear your perspective on the changes that have been made since opening week.

    Yeah I will definitely do that. Not going to do a live from this time of course. But maybe I will finish our original August trip report (I actually wrote it out but never posted) and combine it will this trip and show changes.

    Just got back yesterday and made it to all the restaurants this visit. Correction; didn't do "Flame", the steakhouse, which is actually just 1/2 of the buffet with a divider in the evening. We did "She" twice; the second time without making a reservation. She is the only place requiring a reservation and we had no trouble getting one or getting a table at any of the restaurants. Resort was full.

    I thought all had lots of menu options and the what we ordered was great. I've been experimenting with "vegan"; eating more vegetables, avoiding dairy, and less meat in general. Sea Flirt and the Italian have full blown Vegetarian menus; Sutra also has some dishes too.

    We did have breakfast one morning at Sea Flirt. They told us that it was a Premier only spot but invited us in. We had the tower Blue bands. We may have been the only table when we arrived. It did not seem busy most mornings. They have a patio with several tables for both breakfast and dinner. We skipped the Flame as I read a post on here where someone thought the food overall was rather bad. Something about not knowing how to cook a steak. The first night we ate at the buffet because we arrived mid-afternoon and had a rather late lunch at the Mexican, "Amore". Amore has both a buffet and menu during the day and a separate more extensive menu at dinner. Sea Flirt, the Italian and maybe Sutra have two or three Premier choices on the menus.

    Recommendations: Sea Flirt & the Italian were my favs. Skip the buffet at dinner - too many better options. I would do She only once - it is a set 7 course tasting menu (a Lamb chop is the main) - no choices. The pole dancer is more classy than sexy I thought.

    The A/C in the restaurants works too well. Ladies, bring something to cover those bare shoulders. Gustavo, our waiter at She, did turn the A/C off for us on the last night.

    To the poster who did not like the food at the new TTR, I respectfully disagree with your rating.

    We ate at the Italian place 4 out of 8 nights, loved it.

    We were pleasantly surprised at Amore for dinner 1 night, the owner was eating there at the same time.

    We had lamb and Salmon and it was great. Sutra was very nice, met the manager the night before and he set us up at the hibachi, real nice.

    Went to Sea Flirt, wife no to impressed but I liked it, she's not a big seafood fan.

    We did try Flame but the steaks were not very good, everything was great there, weird.

    We will do SHE next March as we didn't get there this time.

    I would recommend doing a different one every night. We did not care for "She" and there was no atmosphere in "Flame," but all of the others were excellent in their own way.

    We were told pants required by our butler but that wasn’t being enforced. So yes you can it appears on most nights. Not sure if they will enforce the rule at some point.

    Thanks for the info. Better bring one pair of dress pants, a shirt and tie just in case.

    The girls on the poles just had on panties, so I guess it's a choice between dress clothes or just panties! Sam didn't want to wear the panties so he elected to wear dress pants. ;)

    We actually when they're in September and the steakhouse was very good depends on which steak you choose. Seafood was delicious was one of our favorites along with the Asian we did the Mexican buffet once my husband said the salsa was delicious the breakfast at the sea food was delicious and a change of pace from the breakfast buffet we also went to the Italian it was decent but not my favorite I would say try everything in order of what type of food you like and then you'll know on your next go around which ones you'll do we also did the she restaurant it was nice to do once but it does take approximately 2 hours it is somewhat romantic but you have to be willing to give up the time. We are actually going back tomorrow and we decided to do steak once Seafood twice Asian twice and wants to the Mexican restaurant but remember to check some restaurants are closed one day a week at night check ahead of time and definitely try the seafood in the morning for breakfast was one of my favorites
