Memorable - Gazpacho, Selección de embutidos, Gambas al ajillo (yum), Mini pepito de Ibérico, Carne asada con piquillos ‘Julián de Lodosa’, sangria
Not so memorable - Espárragos blancos con limón y tomillo, any desert we tried, service
Menu is overwhelming for some, I ordered for the whole table which was fun for me. I think people were surprised at how reasonable the final bill was considering how much food we had. I'd go back.

The good - Veal chop, Carne Cruda Alla Piemontese (my favorite plate of the night?) the music...lots of Hendrix and Zeppelin excellent, Lobster Ravioli, Sommelier was friendly and knowledgable
The underwhelming - Bone in Filet (wrah wrahhhh), Tuscan fries (GARLIC, to be fair we were warned) + any side we had, service is way too slow, Beef Cheek ravioli (signature ravioli, really?)
I realize that Friday night can be amateur hour, but c'mon. Probably had like 100 employees in the restaurant that night, no excuse for slow service. Too many good places to feed my innner caveman in this town, I won't be back.

Wicked Spoon:
YES! - bone marrow...on a buffet line? Some unique desserts and ice cream bar and a bowl full of Bit-O-Honey's, found the salsa / guac to be excellent, fried chicken, bacon slab
NO!!! - what's up with service in this town? soooo slowwww (in this case to get coffee refill), fruit selection but maybe i missed something
This is the only buffet in LV I'll ever go back to. Don't second guess this one.

I complained about slow service above...I am a patient midwest person and not some uptight east coaster (no offense east coasters, but I think deep down you agree that as a whole you are impatient). I was the last to get uptight out of our dinner parties, so that is a testament to how long things were taking (getting the bill, coffee, dessert menus, plate cleanup, etc.).

Next time...Bouchon Bistro, Javiers, Twist, Sage.
