Wicked Spoon Buffet Yea or Nea?

Hi there,

Visiting Vegas just for the day in a few weeks. Plan on meeting a few friends for a Friday Brunch at the Wicked Spoon. At $22 I hear great things about this Buffet. What are your thoughts? Thanks and Happy Eating..

  1. The ambiance at the Wicked Spoon is more conducive to hanging out with old friends and chatting than most of the buffets in town, including the upscale ones. I don't think the food quality at WS is quite as high as the Wynn or Bellagio and possibly even Planet Hollywood, but the food is beautifully presented and the price is slightly lower. I've only been to the WS once, but it's my impression it is quieter, too.

      While Wynn's buffet is better then most, it is not as good as it use to be. As of now, I'd put the Wicked Spoon ahead of the Wynn.

        Very well could be true. I haven't been to Wynn's buffet for a few years, but this is the first "downhill" report I've heard about it.

          I've been to the Wynn buffet four times over the last eighteen months. The buffet no longer serves Alaskan King Crab legs but snow crab legs. They've cut back on the number of dishes served. They've also cheapened a lot of other dishes. It's still a good buffet but not nearly as good as it once was. I can't comment in the Spice Market buffet since it has been over ten years since I've been there. As of now I'd go to Bellagio, Aria or the Wicked Spoon before the Wynn.

            Below is my Wynn buffet "experience". MMmm looks runny, uh, I mean yummy. Eat up. Which looks better, that mess or this de bœuf au poivre de Malabar which I probably could of gotten away with not chewing at all but it tasted so freakin good. I'm done with buffets, done.

              I agree definitely not as good as it used to be. Alaskan King Crab is gone. Last time I was there the amazing lamb chops were also gone, replaced with a lamb loin chop or something like that. I still enjoy eating there, it's just not as exciting as it used to be. In my opinion, Bellagio's quality has stayed much more constant.

      2. Thanks for the replies. Seem that the Wicked Spoon gets some good marks. I plan to try it out next week. Are their any special dishes that stand out? I will be doing Brunch on a Friday..

          Going tomorrow, any one else like to chime in.. Thanks in advance..

        2. Hi there, went at 11:00 on a Friday. It was good, not great.. I think the time to go is when there is a line to get in. I say this as many of the dishes in the small servings did not get taken right away and they looked kind of tired.. Good value, but Im not going to return. Next??
