Terrible experience. This beautiful hotel with high priced buffet and dinner menu gave me such high hopes that I would be accommodated for as a Coeliac who is very very sensitive to Gluten. I told the server when we arrived that I am Coeliac she said she would call the chef. I have to wait for about 20 minutes for the chef to appear, he seemed irritated at having to take me around the buffet. He was extremely unfriendly and very flippant. He rushed me through the whole process and pointed to a few things that did not look gluten free to me and he told me they were. He seemed completely unknowledgeable and unsympathetic to my medical condition. I asked him, wouldn't it be easier to just label everything and he said " No, because we like the labels to be small and look nice and we would have to add vegetarian to them", 😳My thought then was are you serious???? The labels have to look nice???? And by the way, vegetarianism is a lifestyle choice not a medical condition that makes you very ill???? I decided to put my shock aside and take a few of the options he had pointed out, oh dear, I should have went with my instinct, I was glutenend and suffered for the rest of the day in horrendous pain and many bathroom trips. This ruined the trip as it was my husbands birthday and our wedding anniversary but I was too ill to enjoy the day. The next day I felt drained and wiped out . I am astounded by such a large hotel that seems to pride itself on providing a great experience for customers are completely devoid of knowledge on this matter and the staff don't care anyway. They are missing a very important step in their catering process here and I would NEVER eat in the Buffett again. I guess Steve Wynn doesn't have any Coeliacs in his family and is either completely ignorant of this medical condition or Like his general staff, doesn't care. The worst thing about being Coeliac is that you generally feel like an inconvenience at a restaurant but some restaurant staff will be sympathetic and accommodating so you don't feel that way, however, the Wynn catering staff definitely made me feel like I was an irritating inconvenience, especially the chef who couldn't care less.
Be careful and ask lots of questions if you are celiac. My daughter ended up having a great time and a great meal here with lots of options, but I had to knock of a couple of stars because she would have gotten glutened if I had listened to the chef who took us around showing us the gluten free items on the buffet. As my daughter was loading up her plate something made me ask the guy serving the mash potatoes what was in them and explained we needed gluten free. His first answer was just potatoes. And I said and milk and butter and cheese, right? He said oh yeah, and the fried onion strings. Yikes. He was very nice and got her some from the back without the onion strings. The guy making the potato latkes also told me when I started asking that the latkes are made on same griddle as the morning pancakes. They made us some of those in the back too. So totally willing to be helpful. Just ask lots of questions and don't assume the chef who takes you around knows everything.
Great food. Chef took me around the buffet and showed me what I could have. They made me French toast and a personal size pizza. I am also allergic to shellfish and strawberries but still had many options. Will be back for sure!
I came for lunch. (They don't switch out the food for dinner, just add more things, so they are very similar. Save your money and eat here for lunch.) I arrived and immediately told our waitress that I have gluten and dairy allergies. She said they would send a chef out. It took a good 20 minutes for someone to come out. Because of my dual allergies, I was able to eat about 7 things. They made me a pizza, some penne with red sauce, I could have the pork because they didn't smear it with butter before cooking, I could have the raw tuna although the last one I had tasted like it had soy sauce on it so I stopped eating it, I could have the vegan tomato soup, fruit, and the two sorbets or a vegan mango tapioca pudding for dessert. Don't get me wrong, there were other things I could eat like rice and salads, but who wants that at a buffet. I am glad I didn't waste money by coming here for dinner. Overall, it was satisfactory. Don't come here if you have both dairy and gluten allergies. Very limiting.
Good food. Chef gave personal tour. Very knowledgeable. Overall great meal. Felt safe from gluten, even for buffet. Lots of allergy options available on request.
superb service and tons of options. chef's are very thorough and happy to accommodate. they will make you special salads, pizza, pasta, waffles (the best GF waffles I've ever had), GF soy sauce and they will special make fried rice. are here for breakfast and dinner and didn't get sick and I'm very sensitive, I'd highly recommend this buffet to any GF folks.
I am not only gf but df, sf, nf, & nsf so eating out is a challenge to say the least. After reading great reviews about the Wynn we decided to check it out. We went to The Buffet restaurant and there is not enough praise out there to describe how amazing our experience was. Not only was the food options so much more than I anticipated but Chef Russell was amazing. He came out to greet us at the beginning of the buffet and walked us through each & every dish with ingredients listed. Cause of my restrictions with nightshades he even said he would cook up a fresh batch of the rice dish they had without tomatoes fir me. I really wanted pizza so he made a fresh gf pizza dairy & nightshade free for me. And he even let me know he had an amazing gf brownie if I wanted it he would bring out. The overall experience was outstanding. The cost is so well worth the experience because the selection is so great & the flavors, quality & freshness is top rated. We were told by Chef Russell that the other restaurants in the Wynn are also allergy friendly. Oh and they use separate cookware & stoves for gf foods.
chef knew everything in the buffet and how I could stay safe eating there.
I just want to say how incredible this place is. I'm very picky in where I eat because of all the allergies I have. The Chef personally walked me through every row, and was very thorough. He had a positive approach and was happy to explain in detail some of the ingredients that I asked about. Very good and recommend if you're picky about foods.
My favorite dinner while visiting Las Vegas with my family was at The Wynn at Andreas Restaurant. Going to The Wynn is already an experience in itself, but I was even more impressed with the care and consideration the hotel's restaurants take to accommodate people with food allergies, intolerances, and other health conditions.The Executive Chef at Andreas is Joseph Elevado, he came out to our table and made sure everything was perfect for me and my family. I was so excited to eat something gluten free for dinner that wasn't just a salad! My dinner plate was delicious and my dessert was just as appetizing. Andreas dishes use a variety of fresh ingredients, the restaurant has a great atmosphere, and most importantly, it's Celiac safe. Can't wait to go back!
This review is for the buffet. This place only gets better every year! Many gluten free options. And the staff is very accommodating. The head chef walks you through the whole line telling you what is safe or not. They use a dedicated oven to heat and make GF pizza, waffles, toast, brownies, etc. on request. Meats are GF; they will make you a serving plate of waffles, ravioli, etc on request. They are very conscious about cross contamination. Come here every year and love it.
I was surprised at how accommodating the room service at the Wynn was. I ordered breakfast of tofu egg scramble which comes with toast and although their menu does not list it, they were able to provide tasty GF toast! The next day I had GF pancakes upon request. While I could still tell that they were GF they tasted as close to the real thing as I think possible. Overall a great experience!
