Love the soup and salad bar, I know they have three other restaurants their but I always go to my aatlos, I say this is my new York City place. Wonderful workers and the cooks are very good. Shawn is my best, he doesn't mind to name the salads for me. I had cocucus, but Gordon Ramsey loves it.

We went here as a family for breakfast. We did not have the Buffet, as we figured it was a bit pricey for a Breakfast Buffet. We each ordered a plate off of their menu, and they had a really good selection to choose from! We each liked what we had ordered. Overall, it was good!

Delicious breakfast, coffee was perfect but the service was very slow. They won't refill your coffee unless you chase them down.

Turkey Tuesday- very slack unfriendly service, we had to ask for a high chair for our baby and then had to ask for a kids menu for miss 4. Meal was average and buffet was very limited and had to carve the turkey yourself. Over all unimpressed

My family and I visited aaltos on Thursday, we first began with asking if we could use some coupons. She said yes and we were seated. After going to the buffet the waitress comes back and says we were only able to use one. I didn't think that was right considering she already said yes but we tried to enjoy... More

We went to the buffet this morning with our two children (2 and 4.5) went with the buffet option as we didn't think they would eat to much and their buffet was suppose to be free. We were unaware that their drinks would be $3 each which they hardly touched. We ended up spending $27 for hash browns, bacon and... More

We had breakfast at Aaltos. The buffet here is a deal. The food was good and the service was very good. If you are in Grand Forks, add this to your list. This may be the best deal in town. While the food was very good and the price was unbelievalble, The only negative was that there was very little... More
