    My wife and I very much enjoyed this restaurant. An excellent selection of food, and very comfortable, and attractive setting. Great wine selection, but moderate beer selection that could use some improvement.

    Having dined here once before, I expected much better. The service was mediocre, the food less so. My wife didn't understand why i did not send my dry, tough steak back or why i paid for it. Eat before you come to this casino. There is a KFC in Lockeford.

    Once you walk through the casino and get upstairs the atmosphere improves dramatically. The cigarette smoke and machine bells and whistles disappear. The restaurant is airy and noise level is low to moderate, the outside deck features scenic wooded hillsides. The food ranges from divine to mundane. MY PIZZA WAS FANTASTIC, but my Shrimp Louie featured small broken thawed shrimp. Service is attentive.

    Server made it a point to tell us she had the whole patio and back wall before even welcoming us or taking an order. Can't fault her hustle, but table side manner was poor for this price point. Made it through a very bad shimp cocktail and a very average soup and salad before waiting over an hour for entrees and asking for the check. Told manager we were extremely disappointed; he said he was sorry, he had "staffing" issues that night. Bad excuse and bad experience. Went downstairs and had fish taco's from the fast food joint. Too bad....nice facilities and a great bar with a nice little wine list full of local Amador goodies. Bar and host service are the only thing that bumped this rating to 2 stars.

    This isn't the first time we have eaten at Lone Wolf, which is lucky for them. Our previous dinner was delicious and unfortunately this one was not. However, they demonstrated EXCELLENT customer service by caring about our opinion and going overboard to make us happy/satisfied with our experience. It seems the restaurant was having a bad night, but they are definitely worth giving second chances to.

    First time there, had 5:15 reservation and was quickly seated. The restaurant was lightly crowded at that time, we were seated at the closest table to a west facing glass door which was very hot and had to have the shades be closed. The wait person came and greeted us and asked if we were going to the concert at 7 and we replied "yes". She said she would get us out in time. The restaurant seemed lightly staffed for the fact it was the first of the month and many patrons were attending the concert. This pushed our time to the limit as our wait person was VERY busy. 75 minutes to eat and then have to walk to the extreme far end of the casino for the concert. Need for correct staffing and would be nice to have both venues closer together.

    We went to Lone Wolf to have a special night out. We took advantage of their promotion of Local's Night. As a result, we received a nice discount on our meal as well as no corkage on the 18 year old bottle of wine we brought from our cellar. We ordered two Beef Filets and salads and everything was exactly as we ordered it, very nicely displayed and very flavorful. The dessert, a chocolate mousse, was also very good. We enjoyed how quiet the restaurant is and it's very tastefully decorated. We especially enjoy the booths that line the space. We were seated so that we could see the fire, the kitchen and the dining room. There is outside seating for those that want it but we preferred eating inside on this particular evening.

    Hi We had reservations for 2 couples celebrating their anniversary and I had mentioned it in a e-mail while booking the reservations. To my surprise we were presented with a platter of beautiful desert that had writing along the edge of the platter (in chocolate) saying Happy Anniversary. That was such a surprise and nice touch. It's not that we don't appreciate it but I think it would be nice to be able to pick your own desert. One lady has allergies and couldn't eat any of the deserts. Two other's just wanted Mud Pie. Only one slice was presented. If I might make a suggestion why don't you suggest the customer pick their desert and do complimentary that way.

    Lone Wolf had a very diverse menu from gourmet burgers to fine dining choices. Service was excellent and a great wine list. Even though the menu is very upscale dress code was casual which worked well with the casino. Highly recommend trying out this dining experience for culinary delight.

    We recently dined at the Lone Wolf for the 4th time and it was a wonderful dining experience as usual. The service provided by Shirley was top notch and the menu always seems to have something different each time. A bonus is that the appetizers are nicely portioned allowing a foursome to enjoy one without someone not getting much, (Bacon Wrapped Shrimp is a great choice). All in all, it's great for a couple or a party of 12...we will be back.

    Yep. No other flavor in the chicken except too sweet. Also 2 thighs for $17.00. Not a good deal. I like thighs and these were tender but the meat had no other flavor or spices. The did let me substitute the noodles for a side of Bacon green beans which were perfectly crispy and full of bacon.

    Six locals had dinner there and we were disappointed. 3 ordered hamburgers which they said were dry and tasteless. I ordered fish tacos and crab and shrimp salad which I loved. Another lady has many allergies and it's difficult for her to go out. She ordered the spinach salad which she said looked good. It was such a small amount I'm sure she went home and had something else to eat. Another ordered the special pizza which he said was very good. 4 ordered mud pie, I ordered crème brulee which I loved.

    This was to be a special occasion, our 37th wedding anniversary. My sea Bass came out RAW, still frozen in the middle! My wife's Duck was raw in the middle also. Waiter was very nice about switching Bass for Duck and quickly served meal. We took remaining Duck home and cooked it properly. We were given local discount which helped a little but meal was over-priced. We are left with a very bad impression as to food. Having dined at many four star restaurants over the years we were greatly disappointed in Lone Wolf.

    We LOVE the new Lone Wolf Restaurant. Food is excellent, service has always been attentive and good. The lounge really needs to upgrade their beers. Bud, seriously. Need to stock a Hef on tap and some Honey Jack please. This is a great neighborhood gem for us. We are from Manteca and finding a really good place to eat not surrounded by kids and has really good food for a really GOOD price makes this our favorite restaurant. Consistent all the way around. Relaxing and not loud or filled with kids.

    The service was top-notch. All the staff was friendly and prompt. The atmosphere was so comfortable! And the food! Wow! Portions were plentiful, beautifully presented and so delicious. Since there were 4 in our party and we all ordered a different meal, we shared some so I got to taste all 4 menu items, and each was superb. We also had 4 different desserts - and tasted all 4. Wonderful! We found the prices very reasonable, too. Overall, a most pleasant dining experience.

    The restaurant's ambience is great. The wait staff are attentive and friendly. Unfortunately, the kitchen mixed up my order and I was served the potato and vegetables while my steak was being cooked. By the time it was ready I was full and my husband had finished his dinner. We just took the steak home. It is still a nice place but make sure your server repeats your order back to you. They did give us a dessert to make up for it.

    Our group of 5 had a good cross section of meat and seafood. Each commented on the excellent preparation, presentation and taste. I had the filet, which was excellent, though rather small for $38.00. In general, the menu has gotten more expensive recently. But you can always expect very good food from an ever changing and improving menu.

    i was not expecting the outstanding experience, from start to finish, that we had at Lone Wolf. Our server helped my vegan companion select adaptable items from the menu, and I ordered scallops along with a garden salad and broccolini. "Heavenly" was the consensus as we dined in the lovely setting with a view of the foothills.

    We went to Lone Wolf for our 37th wedding anniversary. Our waitress was friendly, but, not very attentive. We ate at 5:30 PM so the restaurant was not busy. My wife ordered the butternut squash ravioli and I had the pot roast. Neither was very good. The ravioli had very little flavor and the pot roast was over cooked and dry. I ordered a Margarita for my wife and a glass of wine for me. The Margarita had very little alcohol and my glass of wine was served in a very small glass, and it was only half full. The wine was $7 and the Margarita was $9. It took and hour for us to be served and eat our dinner. For a very slow restaurant, we felt that was too long to eat.

    Online menu & actual restaurant menu totally different. Very disappointed that rack of lamb has been replaced. While the chef has the option of changing and/or replacing the food items, sometimes changes are not good. The atmosphere of the new location is too modern - the old location provided a better ambiance & intimacy. In our opinion, the music was way to loud and not really appropriate for dining.

    When you can go to dinner, be so pleased with EVERYTHING that your ONLY comment is that you thought having the bread wrapped in a paper product instead of a cloth, and that the music didn't seem appropriate for a fine dining restaurant...they did GOOD! Food was great, want to go back and try their steaks...service was great, etc etc! Please, you didn't like the paper on the bread...pretty "small potatoes" when compared with everything that was VERY GOOD!!! lol
