    The food was great but and theres a big But! App came right out but too 40 mins after to get the main coarse! Yhe baked potato was extremely dry and it seemed like the "regulars" were more important than other guests! We seem at least 4 tables enter after us and get there meal before us! And for the prices they charge the wait just wasnt worth it!

    Went to Bistecca for the first AND last time. We arrived at 6:45 and ordered our meals by 7:10. At 7:50, the waitress told us it would be about 5-7 minutes longer. At 8:20, the food still did not arrive. I asked a manager to find out why the order was taking so long. She came out later carrying food for another table and never came back. At 8:30 we asked for a manager to bring us the bill for the drinks as we were leaving after waiting over 1 hour and 20 minutes. The man that came out was as arrogant as could be. When I told him that after waiting an hour a manager should have approached our table, his response was “Thank you for telling me how to run my restaurant.” At that point, we left and I can guarantee I will never return!

    The necessity of walking through the casino where cigarette smoking is prevalent was enough to make us hesitate and consider leaving to find another restaurant. The smell of the casino greatly took away from the positive expectations of the restaurant. The steaks, seafood, appetizers, side dishes, wine list, and desserts were excellent. We would love to return to the restaurant during a race, but do not wish to endure the odor of cigarette smoke while crossing the casino floor. We would visit more often if the restaurant had a convenient entrance that did not require walking through the odor of cigarettes. Separate restrooms are also needed to avoid the stench of cigarettes.

    My husband and I ate here for my birthday. Our server was Kim, who was great and answered any question I had. I ate the filet oscar and it was delicious! Like cutting into soft butter. It just melted in my mouth. We had a cheesecake trio sampler for dessert and it was also delicious. A great evening all around! No complaints. We highly recommend dining here.

    My girlfriend and I had a great meal here. It is a bit expensive with entrees and sides ordered separately, but the food was well worth it. Neither of us got steak, but for those who don't like steak the menu is fairly accommodating. Not sure I would suggest this to vegetarian friends, but it is a steak house after all. The service was great and the environment was nice. I would say check this place out if you are looking to spend some money on great food, wine, and service.

    Dinner was EXCELLENT, service was impeccable, husband loved his steak so much he compared it to his favorite steak he had when we were on vacation in Oklahoma in 2009.... Maybe a tad pricey but once dinner was over I was highly impressed and did not mind spending the loot.

    The food was very good, expensive, but that was expected and we'll worth the money taste wise. Waitress started out fine, then for no explained reason became very short any "annoyed" by us. She began to take very long for the few requests We had at the end & the place was empty at the time. Not the service I would expect for $160 meal for two.

  • Good but not great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/6/2014
    Appetizers were excellent, steak was good but not great. I had the Rib-eye Cowboy cut (22 oz.) aged. Steak did not taste aged, it did not melt in my mouth. With aged meat, fat or marble is not very chewy & meat taste is more exaggerated..... Not the case with this $50 piece of meat... taste was OK (but not great) and fat was chewy. It tasted like it was not aged. If Peter Lugers is a 10 and the Capital grill is an 8, Bistecca is a 5. Also had shrimp cocktail - excellent. Large cheese platter - excellent. Bread - excellent. Service - excellent. Ambiance - get a table over looking track (trotters)

    Wait staff gave us great service. Great dinner!" I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Filet was amazing and the Caesar salad was refreshing. We also enjoyed crab appetizer which was amazing. Wine was very good the wife had the Riesling 14 hands and I had the Merlot 14 hands which was very good.

    Food was good, not the best steak I ever had, but in my top 5- but the toppings were absolutely delicious. Waitress was a bit odd...not very friendly, took till almost the end of our meal for her to even crack a smile. Waited quite some time for our entrees even though the restaurant wasn't abnormally busy, which was surprising since we were unable to get a reservation for our original party of 9, we could only get a table for 6.

    At the Meadows for a girls weekend, not knowing what to expect when making reservations here. Not any other choices at the casino for a nice dinner. We had a SUPERB dinner. 2 appetizers to share (mozz wrapped in prosciutto a must), friends had filets while I had the rib eye. We were all perfectly pleased. 2 sides to share, au gratin pot and mushrooms. Potatoes were recommended, now I know why. We had 2 bottles of wine, a reasonably priced valpolicella, and 1 dessert to share. Ended meal with fancy coffee drinks and total with tip was $100 a piece. I've spent more for much less satisfaction. Will come back if I return to the Meadows!
