The Buffet - Luxury AYCE


The Buffet (Wynn)

3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, NV

Buffet (Wynn) on Urbanspoon

Food: 4
Service: 4
Price: Fair for the quality and if you eat a lot

If there is one place in the world that knows their buffet, it has to be Vegas. There must be at least 50 different ones to chose from. There are several top notched ones that I am aware of, and The Buffet (Wynn) is among them. Since we were conveniently staying at the Wynn hotel, so eating there first was an easy choice.

I got to say, The Buffet at Wynn is one of the nicest one I've seen so far. Everything was beautiful and whimsical. I love the front foyer with the floral/fruity displays and the natural lighting.
Since buffets have no actual menu, thus the available items constantly changes. Therefore this post will be mostly just pictures and a few comments here and there.
Of course, the AYCE king crab legs (only available at dinner) is a must. Maybe because I am Chinese, I prefer hot crab legs instead of cold ones, thus could only eat a few. It was good, but not great, I still prefer my garlic steamed king crab :).
They had quite a few made to order stations, and it changes all the time. This time they had the Panang Curry, but sometime it's a noodle bar. Also there pasta, gazpacho and carving stations too.
Since taste is subjective, there are a few items I didn't like, such as the individual pear salad. On the other hand, there are things I absolutely love, like that piece of prime rib. It is serious the best I've ever tried.
Despite how full I might have felt, there is always room for dessert. I must say, Wynn have a really huge selection and they all look so good. I loved their strawberry shortcake and tiramisu.
There is even a made to order waffle/crepe station in the dessert section. Only if I wasn't so full from everything else, I would have loved to try it. They has so many topping to choose from too.
They even had gelato and look at all that topping. I tried their strawberry and lemon, both were very fruity and good. There were no artificial color of flavor here.

Despite the fact that everything was not perfect, nor do I expected it to be, I would rate this a 5 star buffet. The quality was definitely there, and the selection was excellent. However the price here is slightly higher ($34.95-38.95 for dinner), but comparable with other goof buffets on the Strip (such as the one in Bellagio). Overall, I would recommend The Buffet at the Wynn.

wow the buffet looks amazing..can't wait to try it. I just booked rooms at the Encore, would you recommend staying at the Wynn? How was the hotel?

Wynn hotel was beautiful and clean, service was very good. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Also the pool at Wynn is also a must visit.I have never stayed at Encore, so I can't comment, but I would image it to be around the same or even better :)

Hi Jenny! Nice photos and the buffet looks good.

Any other buffets you can recommend? My wife and I are heading to Las Vegas for the first time early next year with with 2 or 3 other people. Any other non-buffet restaurants you can recommend? Also, just by any chance, is there any place there that serves roast suckling pig(or even a buffet that may serve it)?
