(Updated December 3rd, 2021)
The popular and amazing Wynn Buffet is open!
It’s still not seven days a week (yet), but there are now 16 live action cooking stations, new menu items, and a convenient online reservation option.
Wynn Buffet Decor
The Wynn’s buffet, (officially called “The Buffet at Wynn”) is beautiful. And that’s BEFORE you see the food.
It’s high ceilings, elaborate flower displays, crown molding, soft red awnings, and open atrium with marble flooring gives it a décor and atmosphere unlike that of any other buffet in Las Vegas.
When dinning under the Wynn Buffet arched atrium ceiling, you can almost imagine you’re seated in another Steve Wynn creation: the Bellagio Conservatory.
As for price? It doesn’t come cheap, but you get what you pay for, say people who use over-used sayings.
Wynn Buffet Prices & Hours
These are standard, non-holiday prices for the Wynn Buffet are as follows:
|Breakfast||Thursday, Friday & Monday: 8 AM – 10 AM||$38.99|
|Brunch||Thursday, Friday & Monday: 10 AM – 3 PM||$45.99|
|Dinner||Sunday, Monday & Thursday: 3 PM – 9 PM||$64.99|
|Gourmet Brunch||Saturday/Sunday: 8 AM – 3 PM||$49.99|
|Gourmet Dinner||Friday & Saturday: 3 PM – 9 PM||$69.99|
These prices do not include the 8.38% Las Vegas sales tax, nor does it include the tip. So, for example, the weekend dinner buffet would cost 2 people a combined total of $151.71 after tax and before tip.
Wynn Buffet Reservations
While they do not offer reservations, you can pre-pay and receive priority seating by clicking on the green tab on the Wynn website here: Wynn Buffet. The Wynn says they try to seat every person with priority seating within 30 minutes of the designated buffet time. Please note that you must cancel your reservation at least 24 hours prior, or you’ll be charged the full amount.
Based on the online seating system, it appears you can only have a maximum of six in your party.
Wynn Buffet Holiday Pricing
During holidays, prices are subject to rise. These holidays can range from normal ones (like Christmas) to artificial holidays like Super Bowl weekend. On Labor Day last year, the weekend dinner price rose $3 per person more, while the brunch price shot up $9 more per person.
Last Christmas, holiday pricing begins on December 15th when prices went up $3 more for each buffet for a few days until Christmas Eve.
On New Year’s Eve last year, the dinner buffet jumped to $72.99.
Wynn Buffet Children’s Prices
Children aged 10 and up pay the same price as adults.
For children 3 to 19 years of age, the prices are exactly half of the adult prices. For example, the weekend brunch price for a child is $24.50.
Kids under 3 eat free.
Wynn Buffet All-You-Can Drink Option
A popular add-on to the Wynn Buffet is their “Endless Pour.” Now at $27.99, the package entitles you to unlimited mimosas, wine, beer and select cocktails.
On a recent visit, wine selections included a chardonnay, rose, and cabernet sauvignon. There was also three different wine spritzers. The bountiful selection of beers available included Budweiser, Bud Light, Coors Light, Corona, Heineken, Kona Longboard, Stella Artois, Shock Top, and Wynn’s signature house beer, Singing Frog. I thought it was a nice touch for the Wynn to offer a non-alcoholic beer from Partake Brewing.
On the cocktail front, there was a regular margarita, a cucumber margarita, a pineapple mule, and a Bloody Mary made with Absolut Pepper Vodka.
Again, these cocktail, wine and beer varieties are subject to change on the season.
The Buffet at the Wynn Menu
The spacious, elegantly-appointed buffet’s menu has been revamped upon the re-opening, with several new dishes offered.
For those non-carnivores out there, the Wynn Buffet may be the city’s most vegan-friendly buffet, with plenty of dishes available for you. (Wynn founder Steve Wynn himself is vegan).
Below is a sampling of menu items from a typical weeknight dinner Buffet at the Wynn, with the caveat that they are all subject to the executive chef’s discretion. Las Vegas buffets are always trying to improve their menu so they are always subject to change.
Wynn Dinner Buffet Menu
Soups & Salads
Pre-made salads and mixes included the following: Fresh mixed melon, fregola & citrus salad, Greek salad, Italian Butterbean Salad, Radicchio & mixed green salad, a Pea & Pancetta Tortellini pasta salad, and Caesar salad.
The selection of pre-made salads served on small plates were an Italian Wedge Salad, a Tomato & Cucumber salad with Hibiscus Vinaigrette dressing, Golden Beet & Burrata salad, small individual bowls of ceviche, Melon & Prosciutto Brochette,
In addition, there is a smallish (by buffet standards), make-your-own salad bar.
Soups include: Lentil Soup, New England Clam Chowder, Spring Vegetable Soup (vegan), and Chicken Noodle.
The cute Charcuterie area was filled with Genoa Salami, Pepperoni, Prosciutto, Sopressata, grapes, Apple butter, Apricot jam, a roasted garlic & artichoke dip spread, an Olive Tapenade (dip), Manchego cheese, Cheddar and Parmesan cheese.
Next to this area is a selection of assorted breads and breadsticks – all of which I find to be carb-fillers unworthy of valuable stomach space, but to each his own.
Unique to the Wynn Buffet is teh Freshly-made latkes station, with latkes given to you right off the grill. Your four options are: Smoked salmon, Pomegranate & dill, Caramel apples, and Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese with lemon zest.
Dishes here included a Potato gnocchi with clams, a Rock Shrimp Penne Pasta, Grandma’s Baked Meatballs, Crispy Polenta with broccolini and sun-dried tomatoes,

Of course, there’s your basic chilled shrimp, along with oysters, Beer Braised Mussels, and Marinated Mussels. Jonah Crab claws round out the seafood section.
A station becoming more and more popular among Las Vegas buffets are a Made to order Crepe station, and the Wynn has one here as well. Choices include: Strawberry, Blueberry, Mixed Berry, Nutella & Banana, and Peach.

No Sugar Added desserts include a strawberry cake and chocolate cake.
Wynn Brunch Buffet Menu Items
You should note that crab legs are not served during brunch. You will however find plenty of the traditional breakfast items, including pancakes, mini Belgian waffles, Cinnamon & Sugar French Toast, and the requisite made-to-order omelet station. Other breakfast fare includes Corn beef hash, egg whites, scrambled eggs, and crispy hash browns.
This being brunch, many of the items we’ve listed above in the dinner buffet section (Sushi, the Congee station for example), are served at Brunch. The selections of pizza include breakfast pizza.
As always, these are subject to change and the executive chef’s whims, however straight from their menu board out front, here’s a list of the more special “breakfasty” stations and menu items you’ll find during the weekend gourmet brunch:
Sea Salted Crusted Strip Loin, Beef Tri Tip, Herb roasted turkey, Honey Glazed Ham, Cured and Smoked Pepper Bacon Slab, Pineapple Rope Sausage, Polish Rope Sausage.

Wynn Buffet Dress Code
Wynn Las Vegas official site describes the buffet’s dress code as “resort casual.”
While we’re not entirely sure what this means, we have seen signs near the entrance that read: “Gentlemen must wear shirts with sleeves” and that “ladies must wear opaque cover-ups.” Also, “Proper footwear required.”
Skip the Line Pass
Prior to the Covid shutdown, during very busy times, the Wynn Buffet customers could always expect an hour plus wait. To avoid this, they offered a skip-the-line that allows you expedited entry.
Prices to skip the line started at $10 per person, Monday through Friday, to $16 per person to skip the line during brunch and weekend dinners. On holidays, the skip-the-line pass jumped up to $20 per person.
With the new reservation system, it appears the upgrade is not needed and therefore appears to have been eliminated.
