I got married in Las Vegas in April and thought it appropriate to post some restaurant-related reviews given we had our rehearsal dinner at Wynn Buffet and wedding reception dinner at Sage.
WYNN BUFFET (WYNN) – REHEARSAL DINNER
Overall I was happy with the Wynn Buffet as a rehearsal dinner venue. The fact that it was a buffet meant that it was simple to cater for everyone’s tastes and we were given sufficient wait staff to ensure service wasn’t a problem. I would happily recommend the Wynn Buffet for simple group events in the future.
HOW MANY PEOPLE?
27 people including two children.
ORGANISING THE EVENT
The booking process was relatively painless with a quick phone call to Wynn’s events department resulting in them immediately sending me an email confirming that the Buffet’s semi-private room was available for the required date and time and attaching a booking form that set out all the relevant information. Once the booking form was sent, a confirmation email was quickly received and my credit card charged for the full amount for the event for the guests initially confirmed. One week out from the event, I updated the guest numbers (adding more guests), and this was painless with a further charge added to my credit card for the additional guests.
The semi-private room is just off to the side of the seating area as you walk just past the entrance to the Buffet. It is quite spacious and had a nice, simple décor for what it was. The room was set up in two long tables to accommodate our guests, although our servers indicated they could change the seating arrangements if we wanted (we didn’t). There is no door for the room, hence its semi-private nature, but there were curtains over the doorways that meant you felt as if you had your own private area anyway.
Standard buffet-fare although the Wynn Buffet appears to continue to be one of the best buffets on the Strip featuring good seafood, dumpling and dessert stations.
Our group was provided with two dedicated servers, one for each table, who ensured our dishes were taken away and drink orders taken promptly. We and our guests were happy with the service.
It worked out to be about $45 per person including tax and an automatic 20% service charge. This was a bit more than what the Buffet normally costs but given we were provided with a semi-private room and dedicated wait staff, noting that service has been an issue on my previous visits, the premium was worth it.
