Absolutely brilliant. Went after I saw all the reviews here, and was even better than I was expecting. I asked the waitress about the gluten free options and she had one of the chefs come out and walk me through the entire selection and pointed out which were gluten free and which could be amended on request to be gluten free. Everything was also clearly marked. Unfortunately none of the cocktails are gluten free (shame), but the waitress knew that without even needing to check, so they definitely knew their stuff. Everything I tried was amazing quality, no pity-GF-food here
I was taken around the entire buffet by the head chef and shown everything that was gluten free and safe for me to eat. We went at 9:30am and even then there was an impressive selection, meat station was filled, separate GF dessert bar, breakfast food station had the bacon laying over gluten free bread, which I appreciated. Everything was exquisite in taste. He even made me my own incredibly satisfying cauliflower crust margarita pizza! My husband raved over the scrambled eggs, said they were the best he’s ever eaten in a restaurant. I didn’t get sick so we will definitely be going back to this gem every time we visit Las Vegas, highly recommend!
I am coming here every time I come to Vegas from now on! Soooo many options and so accommodating. They could make most anything gf by request! The pizza, pasta, poke bowls, French toast, breakfast sandwich, they’ll special make the Asian food, they only use gf soy sauce, and the previous reviews about the chocolate chop cookies..... omg they’re not lying! The German chocolate cupcake was amazing too. They were accommodating getting me fresh honey butter from the back that wasn’t contaminated with bread crumbs too.
If I could give this place 100000 stars, I would. I was dx'd with celiac two years ago. In that time I have not been able to eat at a buffet and have had to reduce where/what I eat. Chef Alex came out and walked me through the buffet. He clearly understood cross contamination/cross contact as he was walking me through the entire buffet. After walking me through the buffet, Chef Alex came out and checked on me to check how everything was going. At no point did I feel rushed or as if I was wasting his time. When you go to the buffet, simply tell your server that you have a GF allergy. They will take care of you from there.
Without a doubt best dining experience I had during my 4 day visit! I was given a tour by the chef outlining all the items that are gluten free and the ones that can be made to order. It appeared that most all items can be modified to accommodate GF. I ordered the GF french toast and eggs Benedict (made upon request) which were great. The chocolate chip cookies were my favorite desert as well as an assortment of fresh gelato. The assortment of food was amazing! I feel that the risk of cross contamination from utensils is very low based on the positioning of the food and individual portioned bowls/plates. The chefs/cooks seemed well educated on allergens. Most GF items are labeled.
If I could give this 10 stars I would. I cant remember the last time I went to a buffet. I am highly sensitive to x-contamination and i had ZERO issue after eating here. Upon check in I shared that I had celiac, I was asked if I’d like to meet with a chef to take me around. Yes please! He greeted us at our table & took me around to EVERY SINGLE STATION and pointed out what I could have as well as what he could make for me (gf french toast, gf pizza, pastas etc)- all I had to do was let him know! It was personalized and I felt catered to safely. There was gelato, a small GF only dessert area, all chinese food was cooked with tamari, breakfast, salads & fruit, meats (steak, chicken, sausages), potatoes, pizza & pasta - it was incredible. All food items have a tag showing the name of the item & in small print next to it you will see GF for all safe items (helps b/c otherwise I wouldnt have remembered everything). This is a must go & I left feeling well with a stuffed tummy :) Thank you Wicked Spoon!
I was hesitant given risk of cross contamination but a lot of things are in individual servings and some things given by servers. There are a few areas of possible cross contamination if someone uses a wrong tong but risk low. They will make you a fresh salad and gf pizza as well. You can get gf penne pasta but I did not. The chocolate chip cookies were to die for. I really wanted some gelato or sherbet but there was cross contamination in the containers so could not. I did not get sick and it was super yummy. A chef will come and take you around and show you what you can eat and it is marked as well.
The server asks the chef to come out and walk you through. Very aware and accommodating. Willing to make special requests. Lots of options! My only concern would be that people are serving themselves. And could the serving spoon touch gluten foods on their plate? But my son didn’t have a reaction and he’s fairly sensitive. Such a wonderful experience.
I told them about my allergy and the chef came out and walked me through the entire buffet to show me what was gluten free. For those that were not, he said to let them know and they could make a gluten free alternative. Even without the accommodation, the GF options were plentiful. Make sure you try the GF chocolate chip cookie.
What a success! Mentioned my daughter was celiac at check in. Chef met us at the table and walked my daughter through the entire buffet to point out items that are gluten free. He then offered to make gluten free items in the kitchen per request - toast, pizza and French toast. She chose to eat buffet items only. There was a separate gf dessert area. The chocolate chip cookies were amazing! Items on the buffet are spread out nicely so we were not as concerned about cc - my daughter is very sensitive to cc and she had no reaction. Will definitely come back!
This buffet has many options available. GF items are labeled on the buffet. Our server was very knowledgeable and Chef Andrew walked me through the entire buffet, shared what was safe and what could be adjusted. Cauliflower pizza crust and GF pasta available. I had GF French toast with chantilly cream that was delicious. I will definitely come here the next time I'm in Vegas.
The chef walked me around showing me the gf options that were prepared in a dedicated space. He was also aware cross contamination with people grabbing the wrong thongs. He said if I wanted to try some of the gf things that could get cross contaminated he would just make some in the back for me fresh. I asked what he recommended and he brought out a vegetable noodle dish and a fish soup and mussels he made fresh! I did not get sick and I'm really sensitive.
Like everyone else said, the chef came out and personally walked me around and pointed all the foods that were safe. There were a lot of options, including dessert. They also will make you special made items like pizza, pasta. Delicious food!
The chef personally walked me to each station and explained what was gluten free and which dishes could easily be modified to be gluten, dairy and egg free. Unlike other restaurants, here I did not feel like an inconvenience at all. I would definitely eat here again and highly recommend it for a safe celiac buffet.
This place does a great job but you should walk around with the chef and my suggestion is to ask questions and be vigilant. Years ago, I would walk around with the chef here and he would also offer to make things for me in the back. Recently, I’ve noticed they have things marked as “GF” on the label describing the food item. One thing was marked GF but I noticed some crumbs on top that didn’t look right. That’s when I asked for the chef and I asked him and he asked the guys behind that counter. They had added toasted breadcrumbs to the top of the dish! They took the label down immediately. I have eaten at other buffets where the ingredients are different than the recipe the chef gives his cooks. I am very wary of buffets for these reasons.
We came here during New Year's weekend, and for a buffet, boy did this place not disappoint! My wife is gluten free, and there was a large selection of gluten free items. The hostess got us in touch with the head chef who went out of her way to explain and walk us through all of the gluten free items on the menu, and even offered to cook a special gluten free pasta and pizza for us! She was very knowledgeable about potential cross contamination, and all in all it was a fantastic experience. Highly recommend this place for folks with Celiac. We came around 2 pm and surprisingly there was no line. The buffet is a tad pricey but completely worth it for the awesome food selection.
This place is a must if wanting gluten free in Vegas. The chef came out and gave me a walk through of the entire buffet showing me everything I could have! They even made me gluten free French toast and eggs Benedict which were amazing. I literally almost cried I was so happy!!!
My experience was exactly like the other reviews here. I mentioned at the front desk that I have Celiac, and the head chef Katelyn came out and helped my tour the buffet, it is a very big extensive buffet! So many options to choose from, you could never get to them all, which add you all know is not the norm for us. She made me a yummy gluten free pizza and brought it out to me herself. I was so grateful for her time and attention! The Choco chip cookies are the best! Chewy and so yummy. Gelato, chocolate cupcake bites, etc. Lots of meats and veggies, seafood, anything you could want. The best service though, bar none.
Amazing experience!!! The chef not only came out to walk me around the buffet, she also made me my own pizza, delicious pasta dish, GF French toast and GF eggs Benedict! Staff was all very helpful and kind! My husband and I have a hard time going out to eat with me having Celiac, this experience was wonderful!
My husband let them know at check-in that he had Celiac and they sent both the manager and head chef to walk him around and tell him everything he could eat- and also what they could make separately for him. He had a great Gf pizza in addition to tons of seafood dishes and a wide variety to choose from.
Oh em gee! Wicked Spoon was phenomenal! Worth every cent. Told host I was Celiac. The manager came to our table, introduced herself and let me know the chef would be coming to speak with me about my options. Meanwhile, all GF dishes in the buffet are labeled so I was welcome to go and peruse my choices ahead of time. The Chef gave me a tour, showed me all the options safe for me as well as letting me know what could be made for me special. I had so many choices, I had trouble deciding. Plus, they made me my very own GF pizza! Soups, salads, risotto, sushi, pizza, meats, cheeses, veggies, curries, pho, and desserts including cookies, gelato & creme brulee. I ate so much the thought of eating again sounds disgusting! Go here! You will be so happy you did.
Chef Katelyn (I believe that is how you spell her name) hands down made this the BEST dining experience of our trip to Vegas. We asked about allergy issues at the podium, and the cashier contacted Katelyn, who met us at the entrance and proceeded to guide me (the Celiac of the party) through the entire buffet. Was told was I could and couldn’t not eat based off the options, which is standard. What blew my mind and made this the best dining experience ever, was that Katelyn then asked if I wanted anything made gluten free, such as pizza or pasta; basically, all the gluten versions of stuff available, she tried to offer to me in GF versions. I could have cried, I was so happy. Took her up on some pizza with ricotta, broccoli, and mushrooms with seasonings, and proceeded to indulge in the rest of the buffet. You DO run into the risk for potential CC, because it’s a buffet. However, they had separate tongs for everything, and was told that if I wanted, I could have some items from the back to create less change of CC, should I be nervous. I wasn’t nervous; items that were right next to gluten items I either avoided or kind of took in the appearance before deciding to eat any of them. And I ate a TON of food; tapioca pudding with mango jelly, GF cookies and cupcakes, pizza, broccoli, mushrooms, risotto, prime rib, kale salad, crab legs with butter, I could go on... it was pure heaven. I can’t thank Katelyn enough. With her on the team at Wicked Spoon, I feel like any Celiac visiting Vegas will find themselves in a safe place to eat.
Wow! Being GF here makes you feel like a a straight up guest of honor. Personal tour with the head chef. Not only were items marked but he steered me clear of some choices that may be technically GF but he felt could be a gamble because of gluten containing foods being nearby. There were some options not marked GF that they specially made to be so. Eggs Benedict anyone? Don’t pass this place up! Well worth it.
This place is awesome! I read the other reviews on here, because normally I would never feel safe at a buffet, and am so happy that we ended up trying this place out. Just like others described, they had a chef walk around with me and go over everything that was gluten-free. Additionally, they mark all of the stations that are GF. The Chef had Eggs Benedict made for me GF. Just as a warning, because someone else incorrectly stated this, but the Asian station is pretty off-limits. There is not much there that is safe, but you know that in advance and there’s still plenty of options to choose from. Including several desserts. Their gluten-free chocolate chip cookies were some of the best I have had! I did not have any reactions from here.
Maria hostess was great.... Chef tour was an accidental find due to research on her gluten allergy, but OMG, I enjoyed it as much as she did! Identify any allergy you have, and just ask for a chef tour guidance. It wasn't busy, so they were very easy to accommodate even though specifically for gluten it is not their normal procedure since foods are marked GF. HINT: for those very sensitive... some were mismarked or signs switched. He fixed as we went and if not marked GF but it was, he could explain why it was. Also on the tour, he was constantly offering to fix a special preparation of most of the dishes without gluten. Bonus!!! No GF sign is going to tell you that! Sorry, no GF Fried Chicken! Chef tour all the way! Just ask, and show how much it means... ie, Don't forget to tip your Server... Extra!
I am so glad I found this place! When I told the waiter I have Celiacs he got a chef to show me what was safe. Chef Joseph was amazing - he offered to make me gf eggs Benedict and gf French toast. They cook all of their Chinese food with Tamari so most of it is safe. I will definitely be returning next time I’m in Vegas!
The staff was incredibly helpful. When I asked about options, a chef gave me a tour of the buffet and explained all of the safe options. She also offered to make me GF versions of the pasta, pizza, and other items. The truffle Mac and cheese and shrimp and grits were amazing!
A lot of meat, but also a lot of things that are not celiac friendly. I picked what I knew would be okay and away from cross contamination—fruit, salad not next to pasta salad etc...one side is Asian cuisine and desserts. I didn’t attempt to go there, but hubs found a GF cupcake for me and it was good.
