    Bacchanal does have a slightly wider selection but wicked spoon is definitely worth trying. I always get their oxtail pho and bone marrow every time I go.

    I can only speak for their breakfast buffet, but Wicked Spoon is definitely worth trying. Food was great and my wife and I always enjoy it there. Before you go, try and get a 2-1 deal (or full comped) at the Identity comp desk. I don't know the price but think it's about $30/person for the breakfast session. PS. I'll be going there again in about 5 days! :feedme:

    Wicked Spoon is the only one I've ever been to, not a big buffet person cause I just don't eat enough to justify full price.

    But I can get 2-for-1 at Wicked Spoon, so decided to try it for dinner last trip and thought the presentation, variety, and quality were all excellent. Definitely at 1/2 price I plan to do it once every trip.

    In addition to the 2-for-1 you can get an additional discount if you happen to be a Marriott Platinum member!

    Definitely worth trying if you can get the 2 for 1.

    It is - my favorite part is that many of the offerings are individually portioned in single serving containers which makes it easy to sample more things without feeling guilty about overfilling my plate with larger portions I may end up not liking or eating. Excellent salad/fruit and dessert stations - the red beets with a creamy topping is delish...also love those fried chicken legs/drumsticks. I wasn't real impressed my first visit, but must have been an odd time because our last 2 trips were very good - the made to order eggs were done just right! Lots of variety and good quality IMO.

    As others have noted, try to get a two for one coupon!! (If you have a player's card and are 'sterling' level or above at Cosmolpolitan, you can get a 2 for 1 coupon at the Identity desk).

    Daily Brunch: Mon – Thurs, 8AM - 2PM
    Weekend Brunch: Fri – Sun, 8AM - 3PM
    Weekday Dinner: Mon – Thurs, 5 - 9PM
    Friday & Saturday Dinner: 3 - 10PM
    Sunday Dinner: 3 - 9PM

    BRUNCH
    • Mon-Fri: $27 adults | $16 kids 5 - 10 (* note, I think Friday brunch is also $35; not $27)
    • Sat-Sun: $35 adults | $16 kids 5 - 10
    DINNER
    • Mon-Thurs: $38 adults | $20 kids 5 - 10
    • Fri-Sun: $43 adults | $20 kids 5 - 10

    It's my absolutely favorite on the Strip (out of Aria and Bellagio-have not tried Bacchanal).

    Ditto on the bone marrow. It is my must have every trip. Think "meat butter".

    If you like to cook/like to try new things, you have lots of really good stuff you won't find elsewhere.

    I also love the shrimp and grits with creme fraiche (or whatever it is) in mini serving dishes.

    While it's a buffet, it's much more high-end, artful, and cooked with love...and again, you can sample many delicious things that are a little more adventurous yet still yummy. It is the only buffet we have to hit every trip!
     
    Sooooo far away still...
    Cosmo, always our favorite part of our trip!

    Price is a little high to me for a buffet but I suppose you can say that about all the buffets in Vegas. As mentioned, the individual portions are pretty nice and they have some pretty darn good dishes there. Gellato bar is fun. Bachannal edges it out but the price at Bachannal gets absolutely stupid on weekends and holidays.

    Eaten there for both brunch and dinner, most recently this past february. Food has always been good, service excellent, and the atmosphere awesome (imho).

    Have thought the food is a bit reptitive each visit, but if youve never been then definately add it to your plans.

    You definitely need to try Bacchanal. Although the wait is not worth it sometimes if you are not plat/diamond, it is definitely worth a try.

    Does anyone know if the Marriott Platinum 15% discount still applies when you use a 2 for 1 deal?

    I think the last time I ate there was in December, but I got both at that time.
