This is not worth a 2 hr wait and $50 entrance fee.
The food was very gross. I heard it used to be much better but not anymore.
Be prepared to wait in line for 2 hours before being seated.
Other than that, the food is pretty good.

As a Marriott bonvoy member there are some perks- like jumping ahead in line to the buffet which was a good 40min wait... we were quick to sit as a result... our server, Maria, was fabulous and helpful with expediting coffee refreshers drinks not included in the buffet price. The selection of quality food and desserts were awesome and definitely had something for everyone. If you have a broad palate like I do, it is incredibly enjoyable, particularly if you take your time and eat items that are freshly served. As far as a buffet goes, this was a great value with premium meats, charcuterie, seafood, brunch, and gourmet ethnic options.

Being in Vegas for a week, Rozena and I wanted to have the Vegas buffet at one of the top spots! And Wicked Spoon was the option that jumped out at us (it wasn't super expensive, seemed to have decent reviews, and has the coolest name of them all).The buffet spot is located inside the Cosmopolitan, and the walk to the buffet is kinda nice, the highlight of it being this sculpture of a human sized bunny and a dog seated on a donkey. You'll know what I mean when you see it. And you will love it for its weirdness. Now onto the buffet itself. The wait wasn't long, but we do wish we'd been there a little earlier to snag the breakfast prices. You pay upfront. The service was good -- the hostess was kind, and the helpful waiters will be walking around, taking your order for drinks. Some of the drinks, like Diet Pepsi, Ice Tea (we got the raspberry one), coffee, are complimentary. And others, fancier ones, come with an extra cost. The waiters also cleared our table quickly whenever we'd be done with our plates. There is a lot of food to select from. Eating at a buffet or at any AYCE spot is a matter of pacing and selection. We went to the Asian section first. Which is exactly where you should go first, as well. The reason? (Also the reason this review almost had 5 stars): CRAB LEGS. Crab legs galore. They're tasty, they're filling, and they will leave you with a I-am-totally-getting-my-value-for-money feeling. Start with the crab legs, and you will be off to a great start. Plus, breaking them is a super fun exercise. Do not get the sushi. It's like 85% rice, and didn't feel fresh. Skip them, get prawns maybe. But crab legs should be your focus. CRAB LEGSThe shrimp and grits is a really good choice as well that I would probably pair up with fried chicken. Just cause it's hard to resist fried chicken. Don't get more than 1-2 pieces. Get the steak, and the lamb chop may be a good choice too. The salmon is fine, but it doesn't immediately jump out as being out of the ordinary. Not like, you know, err...crab legs. We probably ate for a total of 2 hrs, which is crazily the time limit itself. Don't be shy to hit the 2 hr-mark. Eating should be the main activity of the day for you when you go to a Vegas buffet! Along the way we encountered some decent and mediocre dishes. The tuna tartar is all right. But the veggie samossa (one of the few Indian dishes) along with the chickpea curry are worthy side dishes. The gyro was meat tucked in an unfluffy (is that a word?) pita bread. Wouldn't recommend. There are salads, but I can't say we explored the salad bar. Instead, we went for dessert. The top dessert, for me, is the Choco lava cake. The warm inside of the cake will ooze and melt in your mouth, and you will feel like there is a tiny dancer in your mouth ticking all the right taste buds. It's amazing. They have gelato. It's wild. The canoli is good. The matcha cake was a bit tart, and not our favorite. But considering the sheer selection of desserts, one is bound to not like an item or two. This came close to being a 5 star rating (the crab legs, shrimp and grits and Choco lava cake were all fantastic). Especially because the whole buffet experience elevated our Vegas Trip.
Great selection and quality of food for the buffets in Las
Great selection and quality of food for the buffets in Las Vegas. The buffet is located at the back of the hotel and is quite a walk from the casino. After the pandemic they changed hours and close at 3pm now which is a disappointment. The lines are very very long so expect to be waiting for 1-2 hours at least. With other places like the Wynn your party can take turns waiting while other go gamble or have a drink. Since Wicked spoon is so far away from the casinos and main area it's not convenient to access. Expect lines for popular foods like the peking duck or seafood. They can be faster or provide better set up so that guest are not waiting in lines for certain foods. Overall the food is tasty but the lines have often made us reconsider going
Wait in fastish moving line. Took 15 minutes to get to register. This line is out of view of the second line, the line for a table. Been in line now for an hour. Still waiting. Go elsewhere. Anywhere. Walk into the desert and grow your own food. It will be faster.
Great gluten free options
When travelling with a person who has Celiac, you have to do your research to make sure you find places you can eat and eat safely or your trip could be ruined. This place got great reviews from several sites regarding gf options. Upon arrival, if you are Marriott Gold/Titanium status, there is a separate line you can enter. The hostess also informed us that our status would get us 15% off our bill!! We were there on Spring Break so we were charged $49 which was the holiday rate for buffet otherwise it is $42. TOTALLY WORTH IT! 7 stations all with a chef on hand to request any specific gluten free dishes. There were so many options we didn't need to ask for anything. The only station that didn't have a ton of offereings was the Asian station. Not to worry - plenty of other options to be had! My daughter was in heaven!! Pix include gf and non gf items. :)
What can I say everything was delicious, I wish I had more
What can I say everything was delicious, I wish I had more time to partake! I didn't take any pictures because I ate everything and it wasn't pretty, but it was fresh and good. And staff was nice!
Buffets seem to be leaving Las Vegas, but this one is
Buffets seem to be leaving Las Vegas, but this one is incredible and I hope does not go away.There also seems to be strong demand. We made the mistake of going there around 1pm and the lines were long and deceiving--first there was a line that took about 45 minutes, then another line that took the same amount of time. We noticed it was less busy at other times.Fortunately, the food is worth it. It has a wide range of food for all tastes--from great breakfast items like an omelet bar, Indian food, seafood, Mexican food, and more.Everything was cooked perfected. In particular, they had a meat station that had three kinds of beef and pork and every slide was fantastic. Then some of the little touches they had like the mini pitas were just really nice.Then I was blown away by the desserts. I usually do not like to have too much sugar, but there were so many good bites (not to mention really good ice cream).The wait may be long, but definitely worth it.
THEY HAVE VEGAN OPTIONS!! That's what brought me here! My
THEY HAVE VEGAN OPTIONS!! That's what brought me here! My mom and I were really impressed with the variety and booming flavors! Karen and Stacy really made us feel special the moment we walked up. They really seemed to care about us and what we had going on this weekend! The hospitality from these two lovely ladies was top tier. Stacy was so fun and came to check on us and everyone else in our seating area. It felt like she was an auntie. Love that. Love her. Stephen was also a great server. The decor was so cool as well! I can not recommend this place enough! DONT SKIP OUT ON THIS WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!
Years later, post-pandemic, and still 5 stars all the way.
My top two things that I'm so glad they will always have are:1. crab legs--so fresh and sweet, served with hot butter and lemon if you wish2. apple cobbler with vanilla bean gelato--so crispy with tarte apples inside--this is the most perfect dessert.If I could have one last meal anywhere before I die, it would most definitely be Wicked Spoon. Thank you for making the food and service consistently incredible!
Not worth the wait or the price.
If you're planning on waiting this long, head to Caesars Palace
This is my #1 buffet in Vegas.
It's improved tremendously over the years and for the last 3 years, it's the only one I go to. I'm a local and I eat here every single weekend. The highlights of the buffet are:Bread station: hear me out--tyeir croissants are pretty good and my go-to to eat with bone marrowBreakfast tostada's: delicious, topped with an avocado crema and scrambled eggs. I get them just to top with the bone marrow and short rib meat that's on top of the marrow. Add some crab on there and it's one sexy tostada. Bone marrow: topped with short ribs and pickled onion, it's a rich and buttery option to eat on top of their tostadas, or like butter spread on a croissant. Fried chicken: their chicken wings are fried to perfection and definitely brined. I eat about a dozen of them every meal. Crab legs: 9am and crab legs are on the breakfast menu. I drop bone marrow and squeeze lemon into my cup of butter to dunk the legs in. Yum. Desserts: the whole dessert section is yummy. I love the guava cake, mango cake, ganache tartlets, thai tea ice ice cream, and I top their bread pudding with their strawberry cheesecake gelato. Tip - grab pistachio or caramel gelato and ask the server for coffee. Make an afogatto. Service is a 10/10 with any section. You can request a certain area to sit at, so don't be shy. I highly suggest DeAndre. He's incredible and such a joy to talk to every visit. I suggest calling or booking a reservation online. Lines get long by 10am daily.
Hands down the best buffet ever! During my 4 day stay in
Hands down the best buffet ever! During my 4 day stay in Vegas.. my husband and I came in to eat twice! Quality of food matched the price! Service was stellar!! When you receive great service and great quality of food, the word spread fast! I was referred by a few people and now I'm telling everyone to stop by if they're in Vegas! Keep up the good work
My favorite place for breakfast in Las Vegas Bone marrow is
My favorite place for breakfast in Las Vegas Bone marrow is always in point The desert section is to die for The only problem is a long lines on Sat/Sun but if you are Marriott Bonvoy Gold Member - you can take a shortcut
Fantastic buffet experience.
All of the food is good and presented well. The service was even better. Definitely get the drinks package and try each drink (except the sangria).
just dessertsAfter a recent visit to Wicked Spoon, I
just dessertsAfter a recent visit to Wicked Spoon, I thought I'd update my review a wee bit:1. Yes, the price has increased since my last visit. Brunch pricing for adults is now $45.2. Yes, pay the cashier first and then go ahead and stand in the line to be seated. I would recommend asking how long is the wait; our cashier did not share this information with us, but the female next to him DID with customers she was assisting. The wait was 1 hour....which was ok with us, but it would have been nice to know before paying.3. Yes, the line and wait can be misleading. Although there was no line and wait to pay, the line to be seated is not directly visible as you approach the buffet. We thought we didn't have to wait very long, and we were greatly mistaken.4. Yes, the variety of food is quite satisfactory. The food stations/areas included Asian, Italian, American, seafood, and lighter fare such as fruit and salad. The mac and cheese as well as the fried chicken were both very good. Recommended.5. Yes, make sure to save room for dessert. If I ever visit this buffet in the near future, I think I will start with dessert first. The standouts included the cheesecake and raspberry rice crispy treat.6. Yes, our server was very attentive, friendly, and patient. He checked on us periodically throughout the meal.7. No, the Wicked Spoon is not open for dinner (asof my visit in 3/6/23).BOTTOM LINE:A very FILLING visit to Wicked Spoon buffet. Make sure to save room for dessert!!
I don't know why people even like this place.
Food quality is so poor. Wait line is insane 40 min minimum for breakfast .Took 30 minutes to wait for omelet that was half done only. By time you reach your table everything is cold and stale. The lamb slice the guy cut for us at the station was raw my husband didn't like it. Gyro was dry, sauces are poor. Desserts are very poor quality. Fruits were better than rest of the food maybe because they didn't had to cook it so they couldn't destroy it. Sushi not even tasty. Service pretty bad too our plates were never taken. We had to eat with plenty of plates, no drink refills.
Good Food But Definitely Not The Wicked Spoon From The Past!!
We had gone to the Wicked Spoon some nine or ten years ago and I guess we expected the same level of food quality. Although the food that was there this time was good, as I remember it seemed to be much better before. There also didn't seem to be generous amount of food selection available this time. The service was great and we did not have to spend a long time waiting in line before entering the restaurant. There are certain days/times where this buffet is cheaper and I highly suggest that if you want to eat here, take advantage of that.
This was a big buffet and was definitely an experience.
Abraham was attentive to our table. Lots of food! If you want omelets, meats, fish,Asian, salads, and desserts, it is there for you. I just thought because it was in the Cosmopolitan, The food would be well prepared and outstanding but it wasn't. Most everything was overcooked. I would not go again.
Great food, great service
Wanted to leave a review for Flora at the wicked spoon buffet front reception. She helped my husband and I a lot and was just a lovely and kind person. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious. Thank you Flora!
Went for lunch, line was not too bad, a fabulous selection of food. Constant supply of crab legs, wonderful desserts, great roast beef, good service. Expensive but u will leave very full.
Good food but very overpriced
The food was very god but I found this buffet to be very over-priced. We went for brunch and I expected to have more selection. The scrambled eggs with creme fraiche may have been the best eggs I've ever had but everything else was just okay. If they lowered their prices, maybe I'd go back.
All you can eat quality
This was a great buffet, the quality of the food was excellent. The coffee not so good but that appears to be standard across the USA. Didn’t like the fact the server had to get your sodas, self serve would’ve been more efficient and quicker. Don’t eat all day; save yourself for the feast.
Variety, quality, atmosphere, and staff are all TOP!
SO MUCH TASTY FOOD!!! Legit the best buffet in Vegas - been there a couple times now and each time was different and delicious. We're a plant-based couple so finding induglent vegetarian/vegan options at a buffet usually just leaves us with the salad bar or some mashed potatos. Not here! So much variety and the quality of food and service is SPECTACULAR. I LOVE tiny desserts - this buffet has the best in Vegas!!

We wanted to try a different buffet before our flight and happy that we were able to easily get a table without a reservation. It was quite a trek to find, coming from the Strip, so the walk will make you hungry. Breakfast: $39 Lunch: $45 (begins at 11:00a) We tried just about everything in the buffet. It was mostly all very good. The snow crab legs were plentiful, hot and sweet. The meats were juicy and tender. The sushi, ramen station and egg rolls were not good. the small plates of pork carnitas, wicked mac and cheese, fried chicken, sashimi, and dim sum were all very good. The desserts were very, very good. Our server Maria was attentive and pleasant. She provided timely refills and cleared plates quickly. Overall, this suited us perfectly. We walked right up, ate right away, took our time and then got on our flight back home. It didn’t have the large variety as another nearby buffet, but its 1/2 the price and you won’t leave hungry. TIP: bring a sandwich baggie so you can secretly fill it up with egg tarts!! So good!!!
We went on January 18, 2023 at 12:26 PM. With tax and tip for two people. The total was $111.04. The food was very good! The only suggestions/comments was we wish there was more crab meat within the crab legs. They were very thin. I also wish there’s a little bit more sushi choices but that’s just me. This buffet is less expensive than even the buffets by my house in South Florida and you get a lot more choices here. I would definitely recommend Wicked Spoon! Most buffets around me for cost over $100 for the same style buffet for just one person.
Not even a decent salad. Poor and few choices. Bad bad bad. Much better choices in food court. Waste of money. Nothing looked appetizing.
Not great value for money
We booked which was lucky as the line was quite long. After being seated our waiter took a drinks order, unfortunately that was the last we saw of him. We requested a refill from another waiter. The selection was huge, and most dishes weren't to bad . Our slot was 9:30am to 11:00 am, the crab legs came out at 10:30am, the line quickly grew, and with some other guests taking multiple plates piled with crab legs, they couldnt keep up. We left full, but I couldnt help thinking it was poor value for money, for $250 we could have gone out for a really nice meal.
We loaded up on crab legs! These were tasty and worth the price.
.! Story book ending with the taste buds blessed! I cant even post my pictures it was so good
What a great way to start your day and cure a hangover LOL.
My sisters and I enjoyed this buffet after a long night of fun. The wait wasn't too bad; it was probably 20-30 minutes but I think we lucked out because the line after us grew significantly. Price was about $50 a person but we would pay it again to enjoy their selection! We enjoyed a combination of breakfast and brunch items. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING was good! From their hash browns to their crab legs, all the food selection was fresh and in perfect serving sizes. Service was great also. We have absolutely no complaints and this will definitely be on our list of places to enjoy once we're back in Vegas.
Unhappy with their system and their staff.
Food is ok. We came on a weekend which they don't do reservations so we understand and we did fall in line. We waited an hour in line and get paid. After paying, we still got in line for about 45 minutes to be seated. Our time has come to seat, but the staff was so stressed with a big group!? The person in the cashier verified with them how big our group was and i assume its ok because they collected my money. We even told them we can split up tables to make it easy. Then we were left with an hour and 15 minutes to enjoy the buffet because they close all the buffet at 4pm. Food is ok, personally not worth the wait and the line. Sushi poor quality. Ramen broth is tasty but the meat they used is just a piece of beef taken from some other dish which ruined the dish. I can't remember other dishes literally because all is typical. Creme brulee is good though! Our server, Abraham, seems unhappy with his job, he even commented "not a nice word" after we left the table and we overheard it after we have given a gratuity to these people. Not a good experience. Not worth the line and the wait. Will not come back.
Some menus are just downright horrible (Asian one was just plain bad). This is a Mid-range buffet that is overhyped in every level. Not sure how the other buffets that got worse review do but beware of those youtube reviewers, they might be easier sell than I thought.
This place had my stomach all messed up! Food wasn't as
This place had my stomach all messed up! Food wasn't as great as it seemed and looked! Went for breakfast which is the first meal of the day you'd expect fresh and made perfectly but no I was highly disappointed! Just a high price buffet with basic buffet food. Please SKIP!
Summary: A lot of options, and most don't disappoint.
Value:This buffet is currently $50, $70 if you want alcohol. There are a lot of food options, I'm not sure the exact number but it is beyond 100 dishes. Most of it very interesting and very good. But there are also those options for people who want comfort food with a familiar flavor. As far as desserts go, there are less options, about 20ish. But they are decent enough.Food:There is something enjoyable about a buffet, the sheer volume of food available and the surprise of what you may see next. This one tends toward the gourmet side. Which is great. well not everything was perfect I was very happy with the options overall. And I felt my money was well spent.Summary: Try this buffet. I don't think you'll be very disappointed. The only real disappointment is the fact that it ends at 4 PM every day.
Came here for brunch on a weekday and it was SO worth it.
The price for what you get ratio was really good. I went to another buffet that served crab (will not mention names) paid double and it was not good. This crab was delicious! Wasn't shriveled up and salty. So good! But the line can get pretty long. They had so much variety, and good quality food. Almost everything I tried was delicious. Absolutely loved the dessert bar and will be another must when I'm in Vegas again.
The breakfast buffet is awesome.
5/5 by 👻 @A J.
There is a huge variety items to choose from, from various areas of the world. This is not a place to sleep on.
One of the most mentioned buffets in town next to Bacchanal
One of the most mentioned buffets in town next to Bacchanal at Caesar, Wicked Spoon is often the selection for most looking for the most bang out of their buck. It seems like ever since Covid started, their operations hours has switched to just serving Breakfast and Lunch, and after reading the reviews, the food selection sounds like has narrowed quite a bit as well. Overall atmosphere is clean and upscale, but after the restaurant start getting full, the noise level can get pretty high and the restaurant starting to feel cramped and messy. Food selection is still not bad, starting with Greek and Mexican on the left side of the restaurant to meats, seafood, Asian, and desserts as you make your way to the right. Food quality is not bad, but expect nothing more than your traditional "buffet food." There is also always a long line to the crab legs, as expected, but during our visit we also saw a number of guests picking through the crab legs, making a huge mess at the station; which we found rather disappointing. One thing that particularly stood out during our visit was the service. Our server Hong was extremely friendly and attentive. Our beverages never ran dry and Hong offered different beverage options during our different stages of the meal. Thank you Hong for your great service!
Not the best buffet I have been to; however very good value and choice. It gives you the opportunity to try things you haven't before without wasting money.
Great Value for a Top Buffet
5/5 by 👻 @Lu Y
After reading reviews, we followed directions and arrived at 10:30. There was no line and allowed us to sample both Brunch and Lunch. The selection and quality was just as good as the other top buffets and the price was slightly lower.
My husband and I stayed at Cosmopolitan for 4 nights. We went to Wicked Spoon buffer for breakfast. It is $38 per person and I really enjoyed it.
$45 for such amazing lunch buffet
Buffet started from 11-3pm, unable to Pre-book on line , but it only tools us 30 min to line up at 12:30. The best part definitely is the king crab leg and the chilli fried prawn at the chinese section. Other than these two , the beef and the beef marrow also taste good. I love the raw tuna & beef in the salad section. They do mixed few special salad in a jar. They offer a ice cream section , but I like the 2 warm dessert : the apple crumbles & chocolate w melted chocolate heart.
Not for the Texas Family
We were so disappointed! We waited in line for almost 2 hours. You stand in line to pay and then you pay $50 each and then go to another line to be seated. We were thinking this must be AWESOME look at everyone waiting!!! And everyone seemed to be enjoying their food. While we were in line several people had been there before and loved it. I tried everything, it was either cold, had NO taste, or just plain yuck. The crab legs were plentiful but the were cold and the butter looked delish but didn't it taste like butter :(. I kept trying (trying to get my moneys worth) but with no avail. Even the desserts weren't tasty, they look amazing but they were not good either :(. I don't know if its a Texas thing or not because the reviews are good but NO NO NO. P.S. Do buy a cake out of Carlos Bakery Vending machine when you see one!!!!! Soooooooo good!
Disappointed with Wicked Spoon
We had really high hopes for the Wicked Spoon buffet as had read so many glowing reviews of the options available. We queued for around 25 mins which wasn't too bad and got seated at just after 11am. The problem was that there seemed to be really limited food options and not the range of buffet goods we were expecting to see. At first I thought this might be because we'd arrived at the time between breakfast and lunch so maybe more options would arrive but that wasn't the case. It was just the same food that had been sat there all morning.
