Wynn Buffet Walk Through

Wynn Buffet has been one of the top buffets in Las Vegas for years. We have been there in the past and went back for dinner. In the middle of 2014 we tried their lunch buffet.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas interior decor

Decor, Vibe – Massive dining room and buffet area. Whimsical decor with tall floral displays. 16 live action cooking stations. People from all over the US and world were eating. We had to wait about 30 minutes to get in. Wait times can exceed an hour during peak times.

Wynn Buffet Picks:

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas salads

They had four different soups, and approximately ten different salads on our last visit. For some reason there was no fruit during our 2014 lunch buffet.

An excellent Guacamole and apple salad was part of this section.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas sausages

During our last visit, they had Kalbi flank steak, pork loin and three sausages for lunch. All were of good quality.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas turkey ham carving station

Other entrees included a top notch fried chicken.

Side dishes were plentiful. Standouts include tomato polenta, cauliflower, sweet potatoes.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas cheese and breads

The cheese selection above average as was the bread selection. The pretzel bread was especially good.

Their Italian station had a solid pasta carbonara along with decent pizza.

Four different pastas were present at their Italian station, good but not up to the quality of Caesars Buffet.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas Chinese Dumplings

A custom chili dumpling station. Three types of average dim sum including a mediocre pork bun.

Several different types of roes, but no raw fish except for the plank salmon.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas yogurts

A nice selection of house made yogurts, vegetable medley, and other individual servings.

Wynn Buffet Las Vegas desserts

Extensive dessert selection with lots of pastries, cakes, gelato, cookies, candied apples, tiramisu, and more.

The Buffet at The Wynn had fair service. On other occasions, the service was slightly better especially when the server saw we prepaid a tip. Prices are higher than at most other buffets, but you do get a lot more quality items. We would rank this one of the top Vegas Buffets ahead of Bellagio’s Buffet, but behind Caesars Buffet and the Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan. At $36.95 – $39.95 for dinner, The Wynn Buffet has higher quality items and a wider selection. No $9.95 buffet can rival the Wynn Buffet. No lobster or sashimi here though. The strengths of this buffet include salads, deli meats, cooked meats, and desserts.

The best buffets remain:

TIP: Maximize the food selection by arriving shortly before they change dishes from lunch to dinner, or brunch to dinner (3:30pm). You will also save money. Kid’s half priced discounts available for those 3 – 8 years old.
