- Wicked Spoon Buffet -- The CosmopolitanMember ofLocal CultureBudget TravelersFoodies+ 4Nov 21, 2013
One of the best buffets in Las Vegas!!! There are so many owns to choose from and the dessert bar is the best ever. Make sure to eat the chocolate covered strawberries, as they are the highlights of the buffet. I also like the salad bar because of the unique options that are available. They make them in small portions so you can try different mini salads without waiting them. If you're adventurous, try the bone marrow.

Best buffet in Vegas. Better than Bellagio, Wynn and Paris. Food alone, I would even prefer Wicked Spoon over the more expensive Sterling Brunch. Of course, the unlimited Perrier Jouët champagne might still have be going back to Sterling.
I truly adores you for the reasons below.
- Good selection of food from a wild range of cuisine and origins. You can find anything from fried chicken, pizza, curry to Korean bbq, dim sum, sushi and many more.
- Excellent quality control and presentation. Most dishes are served in lovely individual containers. They looks neat and you don't have to worry about anyone leaving a mess at the buffet tables.
- Tasty food! While I can't say I love every single dishes I have tried, there are quite a few things that stood out. The kalbi was great. Salmon was seared quite nicely. The fried chicken was very crispy and the egg Benedict wasn't half bad. I really enjoyed the salad bar too. They have good quality heirloom tomatoes and olives.
- The Dessert. That is THE reason why you need to come here. I used to like Bellagio's desserts but Wicked Spoon beats them in all aspects. These goodies look (and taste) better than those from pastry shops. I think it is a bargain even if you just come here for the desserts. Must try their caramel walnut tart, flourless chocolate cake and apple pastry. The gelato station is skippable.
What makes it even better? Brunch buffet comes with a glass of champagne/mimosa/bloody mary.
I will return for their dinner buffet. I heard they have bone marrow. Sorry Bellagio. I don't think I will be returning to you anytime soon.

Most of the lists of best buffets that I've found list Wicked Spoon as Vegas' second best buffet, just behind Bacchanal at Caesar's Palace. It's a bit more affordable - weekday brunch came to $30 a person including tax and tip. The small plates buffet concept is charming, especially when you see the tiny fry baskets and skillets. The food was really good. The desserts are especially magnificent. Service was pretty good too. This has definitely been the best buffet I've ever been to!

If you've tried all of the other big buffets on the Strip, like at Wynn - or even if you haven't, this is the buffet you still want to pick when it comes to an all-you-can-eat feed in Vegas. Small plates, gorgeous desserts, global flavors and cool decor make it a winner.

I was very VERY VERY underwhelmed by this place. Really folks... the deal is not what it used to be and they are living on lost reputation... kinda like a chicken that is running around after its head is cut off.
Yes they have some intriguing and great items here. However when I was just here, not 1 person was impressed. When I see the prices that people used to pay of $22 for brunch/breakfast, I can agree my whole outlook would likely be different. However the price is not $39+tax & tip. So realistically you are looking at a $50 meal. Is this place worth that? To be BLUNTLY BRUTALLY HONEST, OHHH HELL NO! It's a standard Vegas buffet.
Bangers n mash - Hands down the best tasting item on the menu. The sausage snapped when taking a bite. Even on a precut portion. The gravy was perfect. However the mash was one of the best, if not the best, that I may have ever had.
Stir Fry Beef - My second favorite item on the menu. But you can get the same results from just about any good Chinese restaurant for $10-15.
Watermelon Juice - Super Tasty, but I cant remember what exactly that they called it
Kalbie Ribs - If you like strong flavors (perhaps over the top) this was an awesome thing to eat as well. There was no subtlety here it was in your face taste and I loved it.
Gelatto - Hit and miss, but the mint chip was outstanding and the best of the 5 flavors that I tried.
Cheesecake - very rich moist and extremely filling in small portions
BACON! Just the right level of crispy and soft. Very flavorful, and tasted more how I make my bacon than I almost ever find at a restaurant.
Prime Rib au jus
Cream corn with red n green peppers
Most of the deserts
Angry mac n cheese - bad day? The cheese wasn't creamy and seemed to be separating, very oily
Linked sausage from the carving station - no snapping, no taste, no interest
Fried Chicken - no taste hardly at all. The Colonel 's chicken is ten billion times better than this. (several of the yelpers I was eating with agreed that this is the worst that they have tasted chicken from wicked spoon)
Gnocchi - very very bland with an unanticipated consistency, almost grainy if that makes sense. Definitely different from when I have had this in the past
The asian riblets - very weird tasting and I only took a small niblet to figure that one out
The five billion little dishes for food to come in. This is an utter nightmare. I do like that all the dishes can be tasted separately, but it's still a royal pain in the derrière! This is easily solved by plates with dividers on them as an option... it is a buffet err cafeteria after all. Ohhh wait, does it matter? They ran out of all of these lil pint size dishes and started putting out large bowls for things previously in mini dishes.
The service sucked. I had to ask for more juice several times and they didn't want to take the dirty dishes even though we had piles of mini bowls, baskets, plates, etc... Then when they did take plates from us, they just grabbed everything from you including what you may still have been working on.
In summation, for the money spent, this place is not worth it to go to again for me. Perhaps it was a bad day. At least I didn't wait in line for this crap like so many others were doing. Drop the price, kills the stupid excess dishes, improve service, make sure you don't have an off day in the kitchen, and I bet I may like it. I would have been satisfied in the $20 range. But at a base price of double that, it simply does not even remotely contemplate being a good deal...
One last thing, being it was brunch, if you wanted champagne, mimosa's, or alcohol period, that was an additional fee. Bottomless mimosa's was an additional $10 per person!

Best buffet on The Strip! Not to mention it's also in the best hotel in Vegas. The brunch buffet on Tuesday was only $22, which included unlimited champagne. What a deal!
Their international selection is absolutely mouthwatering. Your eyes will definitely be bigger than your stomach, so make sure you pace yourself. Hightlights included pastas served in mini skillets, fried chicken wings in mini fry baskets, awesome carving station, giant made-to-order omelettes and a beautiful array of desserts.
Save the buffet for your last day. Perfect cure for those hangovers!Recommended for

We had brunch here with our children because the line at the Bellagio buffet was much too long. As with many things in Vegas, the presentation was amazing, but the quality of the food was only average. The deserts looked amazing (we didn't indulge during the morning), so that might make it a tastier option for lunch/dinner.Recommended for

The epitome of blind gluttony. There is something about being in Vegas that makes it justifiable to over indulge and shamelessly stuff your face. I arrived at Wicked Spoon at 11am and by the time 11pm rolls around I was still full. So maybe I over did it a little but I felt obligated to eat my money's worth since I already paid $42 and I also had practically starved myself for the previous 3 days in preparation.
There was barely any wait when we arrived at 11am but by the time we left at almost 1pm, the line was quite significant. The service was good and they were fairly attentive. There were a lot of people working so you can easily find something to ask for things from. They also have optional bottomless champagne/mimosa for just $10 but we were sufficiently libated the night before and opted out of it.
This is going to sound a little crazy but I was disappointed in the lack of selections. So they did have 5 stations of food but each station only contained 5-6 selections. I did enjoy the small plates they presented everything on because it's pretty but it's not all that practical. If it was in one large pile, I would have taken 1 piece of fried chicken and not the 3 that the basket contains. The same goes for the pasta dishes that came in a miniature pot. I ended up wasting a lot of food.
The taste was just okay for most items. I really wasn't impressed in the dishes that the reviews and my friends hyped up like angry mac n cheese, fried chicken, and bone marrow. The salad bar was also salads in individual cups. I enjoyed the wedge salad but the caesar salad was quite disgusting.
The best part has to be the dessert section. There is a large variety of desserts to pick from and a full gelato selection. I really enjoyed the dulce de leche cheesecake and the chocolate raspberry tart. The gelato was also amazing. I had the salted caramel and it was creamy and delicious with the right amount of saltiness. My friends had the Thai tea and that was great too. I'm a little sad they didn't have a hazelnut flavor.
You can ask for coffee, juice, or gelato in a to go cup to walk out with. I asked for an orange juice with ice and the girl was extremely nice in saying that it's of course something that they do. Love the awesome service.
