Are you deciding if you should visit Wicked Spoon while you’re in Las Vegas? You’re in luck. I have an answer for you. Take that luck and bottle it for your visit. While you’re at it, pull up a chair, because we are going to discuss all things Wicked Spoon Buffet.

Where is Wicked Spoon Buffet located?

Wicked Spoon Buffet is located in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Smack dab in the middle of the strip in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan tends to attract (or is marketed towards? It’s a chicken or egg discussion here, not sure which came first) the young, hip and spendy crowd.

Most of the popular Las Vegas Buffets are located relatively close to the entrance and casino floor. However, Wicked Spoon is on the second floor of the shopping mall in the Cosmopolitan. Take the escalator or elevators upstairs and keep walking, because it’s deep into the hotel once you’re near popular breakfast spot, Egg Slut.

The Atmosphere

The decor and ambiance at Wicked Spoon buffet is modern, clean, lively with youthful sophistication. The layout is more of an open floorpan, and seating is mostly tables and chairs with a few booths available throughout.

After you pay for your meal at the reception desk, you’ll be corralled to the side to be seated. Also, if you’d like or need a booth, make sure you tell your host or hostess when they come to greet you and walk you to your table.

The tables and booths are well spaced from one another.

The Food and Menu

The quality of the food at Wicked Spoon buffet is incredible. In fact, the caliber of ingredients, seasoning and flavor is high by any restaurants standards, but particularly a buffet.

Tip: Wicked Spoon buffet is the buffet to go for breakfast or brunch

What sets Wicked Spoon apart is its exceptional and unique breakfast and brunch assortment. It goes beyond your run of the mill, omelette station and tray of sausage or bacon. Although, they have those things too!

There’s a curated selection of scrumptious brunch favorites served in little individual dishes. Undeniably, perfect portions for tasting different offerings without filling up too much on one thing.

Don’t Miss These Delicious Dishes

The hash brown bites are an absolute symphony – crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and the Chipotle ketchup has a slight kick of spice to it.

If you like sweets with your breakfast or brunch, the cinnamon walnut French toast with strawberry compote might be one of the best French Toast renditions I’ve ever had.

The roasted potatoes are delectable – with just a slight crisp to the corners and are perfectly seasoned and paired with roasted garlic.

Do you love biscuits and gravy? Don’t miss Wicked Spoon’s interpretation of it. The gravy is rich, creamy and flavorful.

Let’s talk Meat and Seafood

If you’re a meat lover or seafood enthusiast or are just generally carnivorous, I don’t want you to get too excited. Will you be disappointed with the meat assortment? Perhaps? However, that will depend on how much meat you typically eat for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

The main sliced options from the grill station are roasted beef tri-tip along with slow roasted striploin. There’s also BBQ’d chicken, Italian sausage, chicken sausage, applewood bacon and fried chicken. Basically, there’s a plentiful amount of meat available for a brunch assortment. Although, if you’re a diehard meat lover, make sure you check out the Bacchanal before you leave Las Vegas.

Service and Cost

Service

From the cashier at the reception desk, to our server to the attendants at the live action and buffet stations – the staff is of Wicked Spoon buffet is wonderful. Warm, sincere, friendly and attentive. , Basically, what more could you want?

Like similar buffets to Wicked Spoon, a server promptly greets you when you’re seated and takes your drink order. One thing I loved, is I was able to order hot coffee and orange juice at the same time right when we sat down. Afterwards, our server came around regularly offering to top off my coffee cup or refresh any of our drinks.

Know Before You Go

Reservations

Wicked Spoon buffet does not currently take reservations for parties under eight people. If you intend on dining with a group of eight or larger, you can reserve your table in advance: here. Having a party? If you’ll be gathering together twenty or more Guests, you can reserve your table via an event request: here.

Best time to go

If you’re pressed for time or simply want to avoid crowds when possible, I highly recommend arriving at 8:00am when they open or by 9:00am at the latest. By 9:30am on a weekday, there’s already a long line to enter. At 10:00am, there’s going to be a significant wait to be seated. When 10:15am rolls around, there will already be a l-o-n-g line to get an omelette at the omelette station.

Wicked Spoon buffet’s operating hours:

Monday – Friday 10:00am – 3:00pm

Saturday & Sunday 10:00am – 4:00pm

Gratuities

Gratuities are not included in your bill. If you are visiting internationally, it’s standard to leave a 15% – 20% tip if you are happy with the service and experience. You can add a gratuity onto your card when you pay or you can give your server cash.

Don’t forget your Rewards Card

As always, make sure you sign up for a players card at the Guest services desk upon arrival. Do this before dining at Wicked Spoon buffet. Cosmopolitan was acquired by MGM recently, so any spending you do at the restaurant can earn you tier credits and reward points. At the present time, you’ll need to hang on to your receipt and then go to Guest services at any MGM property and they can manually give you credit. By February 2024, Cosmopolitan should be able to accept MGM players cards.

Executive Chef Mark Crane and the entire Wicked Spoon Buffet team is doing a superb job. It was nice to see that Wicked Spoon lived up to the hype. Questions about Wicked Spoon? Drop them in the comments below!
