All you can eat buffets are fabulous, but you haven’t really had one until you’ve had one in Las Vegas! If you’re in the U.K. the nearest we get to a multicultural buffet is probably a Cosmo or Red Hot Buffet. Being honest the latter I last frequented whilst on a hen do (Batchelor party) and the quality of the food was poor. The former tried to open a classier version in Leeds and it closed down very quickly. It was after a ‘flood’ and has yet to reopen years on. It was also based on that kind of 5 star American hotel buffet feel and to be honest I can see how it just doesn’t compare. It’s well worth doing if you aren’t ever going to get to Las Vegas but if you do then make sure you plan time in to go and eat alll the things!
We chose The Buffet at Wynn which is towards one of the ends of the main strip. We’d heard good things about it and of course, it was so Instagrammable! I knew I wanted to go and see their floral displays! I’d seen the inside of The Wynn and I knew it was the place I was going to love. (There’s also a Chloe shop inside The Wynn which is another bonus lol!) We spent our time wandering around the hotel to find the floral carousel and hot air balloon which didn’t disappoint.
It took us an age to find where The Buffet at Wynn was held though. More than any other part in any of the hotels! So like most of the hotels there, my advice is to leave yourself time to get there!
You can’t book a table though so it’s advisable to go outside of peak times for a more enjoyable experience. We went about 3pm for a late lunch/early tea. Buying a ticket was amazing as the cashier was so blooming lovely and told us her life history it felt! It set us up though for an amazing time there.
We got a table in the best part amongst all the floral displays. There are rooms that come off from this space where you can eat too. So we asked for one in the centre and they were happy to accommodate us in Instagram heaven. As with all kind of good tables/ upgrades etc my tips are to dress well and be polite! It goes a long way! It was still pretty warm in October so I was in my River Island leopard print maxi dress and Luke had tailored shorts and a nice polo shirt on. Nothing too major but nice enough!
We decided to upgrade to include drinks too. I mean, why not right? It’s classed as Endless pours, which is one drink at a time and only a new one once you’ve finished the last. similar to a Bottomless Brunch here in the UK really. They had a fab selection from beer, sparkling and still wines and some cocktails too so were well worth the extra. It cost us about £40 each, which if you compare to a buffet or brunch with unlimited drinks over here is about comparable.
I can’t even begin to list all the food on the Buffet at Wynn, but it came from all continents, with a strong offering of typically American, Italian and Asian food. There was also a string tapas selection too which I went for!
The desserts were also immense with a massive chocolate fountain dominating that area. I was in my element. You can see a bit more over on my Las Vegas Highlight on Instagram as I did some shoddy filming of the buffet on there!
Time-wise, we spent about 2 hours there. taking it all in (literally lol) eating and drinking. The endless pours of drinks end after 2 hours which is why haha! Afterwards, we tried to walk it off before relenting and getting an Uber back to our hotel!
I would recommend the Buffet at Wynn if you are heading to Las Vegas. Just remember to go outside of peak, dress nicely and fingers crossed you’ll get a seat worthy of Instagram there! if not you’ll certainly end up full with lovely food so it would still be a winner!
