    Debating on if to do wicked spoon for lunch or dinner. Much different for the price increase?

    It depends on what you like to eat. At the dinner time, the majority of brunch things are gone, but there's a wider option of dinner stuff available.

    For lunch, they offer similar dinner items and a better price. If you don't mind eating early, I'd say save the money and go for that! I do love some of their dinner dishes though.... A few years back I had some amazing Shepard's Pie there.

    What additional items do they put out for dinner I guess is the question.

    Last time I went for dinner, they had crab legs. That was one of the most discernable dinner items that I've seen compared to lunch.

    We were disappointed with Wicked Spoon last trip.
    It was our 7th visit and we thought it had gone downhill.

    I've only been once and it's vastly over-rated.

    I didn't think it was that much better than Cravings buffet @ Mirage.
    Yes, they pre-portion. Some people really like that.
    Good gelato selection, but I don't really care about gelato that much.
    I think it's a decent option with a coupon.
    Full price? No....I'd rather go to an actual restaurant.

    We went there around 11am on a Sunday in late February and ended up leaving before we even got in.

    There was an extremely long line (we have no status at Cosmo - so no line cutting for us) and after waiting for 45 minutes zig-zagging through the ropes, we arrived at the cashier only to see ANOTHER line that we were going to have to wait in to be seated after we paid and they told us that was about a 45 minute - 1 hour wait as well.

    VERY disappointing to wait for such a long period of time with a group of hungover people, only to be told that you are still only halfway through it.

    We ended up at the Burger place (Holstein's) and it was quite nice.

    We were there in December and were underwhelmed to say the least. With that said our server was outstanding, and I made sure he knew it.

    This seems to be a Vegas standard: come up with a buffet concept original enough to get people talking, then back off the effort and coast on reputation for ten years.

    I've gone to Wicked Spoon at Cosmo many times. I don't think I've ever been for lunch, only dinner, from what I remember. The food has always been spectacular and IMO the best buffet in Vegas. I don't know if it's worth the price or not since that's a case-by-case situation and I've only eaten there on a comp. I don't think I remember a single time when the service there was even on par, it has always been awful. Takes forever to order your drink and get it, plates are always stacked up. As of a few months ago, they also stopped giving you a spoon, you'd only get a knife and fork. Don't know if they've changed it since, but that was pretty annoying.

    Still, the food is top notch.

    If you really can’t decide, go the last 30 minutes of lunch and get the best of both worlds.

    I stayed at Cosmo in December and ate at Wicked Spoon thrice, one brunch and two dinners. I would say that if you're going to do it do the dinner. It'll be about $10 more but IMHO its worth it. From what I observed there just seemed to be more dishes at the buffet for dinner that otherwise would have been occupied by breakfast fare at the brunch buffet. I'm not a big dinner buffet person by any means but I thought Wicked Spoon was outstanding. Its not inexpensive but I've certainly had worse sit-down dinners in Vegas for more than what Wicked Spoon costs. When I go back to Wicked Spoon in July I'll go for dinner, the extra cost is totally worth it to me.

    :peace: :beer:

    We went as we'd heard good things. Found it highly overated and expensive. It didn't help the woman serving us was extremely rude. First time in Vegas I felt ripped off. Massive disappointment.

    Weekday brunch is 8-5, dinner is 5-9 pm. We always go at 445 and it is perfect!

    We went a couple times last week, early dinner because of the time difference, so around 4 I would guess? It was ok but not as good as it as a year or so ago. The food was pretty good for the most part, but it seemed like it had been out too long. Loved the cherry meringues and the chicken wings were still great. I think they need to catch the slide on the quality before it gets too bad.
    The only times I have had bad service there is when I have tipped when I paid. It's like they have the money and nobody comes back. I don't do that anymore.
