    We had a wonderful relaxing evening. The server was pleasant and came around and kept our glasses full of wine. He was very discrete so that our conversation was not in anyway interrupted. Ambiance was great....nice dim lighting. Noise level was kept to a minimum. I am not a fan of loud restaurants (music and kitchen noises). A little on the pricey side, but I guess that was the price range we chose. A great night was had by all.

    Firstly it doesn't hurt that we saw Wanda Sykes walking out of the restaurant as we were walking in. The energy was great and the mood vibrant. The staff all the way from the hostess onwards were friendly, helpful and great! We have been there before but I don't recall it being as energetic or memorable [that's not to say it wasn't good as it obviously was - we came back!] but this time just seemed more "fun"!

    The restaurant was very tastefully decorated and had a nice atmosphere- we did the Dine Out menu and those who ate the arctic char found it extremely salty. The elk would have been the better choice - very tender and flavored well. The cannele was very chewy and very difficult cut in bite sized pieces...the appetizer salad/soup were the best -very tasty! The service was very good - they were always filling up our water glasses and were attentive. I was disappointed with the food but the service was impressive-perhaps I may return and give it a second chance.

    Decided to take my wife here for a quiet dinner. Dinner was terrible, very dry meat, pasta was over cooked. On top of it, I realized after I had left the restaurant that I had been charged for a crab cake which I did not order. I do not recommend dinning here.

    I have been dining at Tramontos for many years. It is a great dining experience with the added benefit of being surrounded by add-on entertainment. Shows, Casino, etc... Food is always very good. Service is at a unrushed pace. Allow 2+ hours for a full 3-4 course evening. Don't rush it!

    Time and time again this place continues to knock it right out of the ball park . The presentation is awesome and food is to die for, you just can't go wrong choosing this establishment for great dining. From the hostess that greets you, right to the server's this place is top drawer. The wine list is over the top with very reasonable pricing. It is a 10 out of 10 for Tramonto ! The River Rock should be proud to have these guys on board ! They make the place look good !

    The restaurant is relatively modest in size so when you have a table of 12-14 with a number of small children on personal entertainment systems at high volume it is not pleasant. Maybe it was our 6:30 pm reservation time that was the mistake.

    Tramonto Restaurant - this was a very nice surprise ... a quiet, intimate experience in a very loud and crowded place The food was very good - we had crab cakes and pork and both were very well prepared and presented. The servers were excellent - attentive enough but not hovering ... and not once did I get the tepid "how is your food tasting" comment that is ubiquitous with servers A nice place to go

    One of our book club ladies was having a special birthday, so we went out to Tramonto to celebrate before the BeatleShow at the River Rock. The waiter was very attentive, and worked around my allergies and had good suggestions for the other fussy eaters (no gluten, low cal, etc) The views were impressive and the atmosphere perfect. They even came out with a special birthday dessert for our friend, nicely done. Everyone raved about the dinner and we finished well in time to get to the show on time.

The food portions were quite large, very nicely presented and it was all delicious. Our server was lovely and heplful. She acknowledged the occasion with a beautifully decorated dessert for us to share. We appreciated the attention to detail. This was our first visit to Tramonto and we will look forward to our return.

    We visited Tramonto for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful experience. The food was DELICIOUS! The scallop appetizer was to die for. I particularly liked that the actually split it onto two plates after I indicated that my husband and I would be sharing. I had the risotto for dinner and my husband the beef tenderloin, and both were excellent. Also, great wine list and great service. All in all, a perfect dinner and good value for the money in my opinion. I would go back again.

    It was our anniversary and I was looking for a romantic place to stay all together with great service and great tasting food. We actually ate at this restaurant the first time we share our feelings together, and instantly, I was loving the food great overlooking table, candle light dinner; most of all, the service!!! The guy was a little bit loud (don't get me wrong. I love it!) and he talks with his hands. Explains the menu very well. Suggested some food. Surprised my girlfriend with a very beautifully made tiramisu cake... Their service and food goes well together. I will for sure come back to have another dinner with my girlfriend. No doubt.

    Had my birthday dinner here and it was amazing. When I entered the restaurant, the very friendly hostess greeted us and welcomed us to Tramonto. She then seated us at a lovely corner table where it was quite and with a great view. We ordered the crab cake which was good. My bf ordered the beef tenderloin and it was so soft and tender, it just melted in my mouth ! I ordered the seafood platter and delightful !!! The yummy clams, lobster tail, crab claw and scallop !! (It came with mussels but I'm not a big fan of it, so I asked for more clams) Anyways it's always a pleasure to come here because the food and service is always consistent :) I can't wait until I come back again! P.S. You must try there pear sorbet !!!!!

    It's the worst food that we have ever had. The crab cake ($15) was so stinky. Actually, all of the meat and seafood that we ordered were to old. For paying $35 for some pasta, we could expect they should be cooked to a normal standard on the package, but it was like something being re-heated for a few times. This restaurant gives a bad name to Italian cuisine. Don't go there!

    We watched the sunset as we had dinner, its was lovely. Food was delicious; service over the top; ambiance very comfortable, we could talk quietly, no yelling over loud music or other diners. We were there early in the evening because we wanted a window table for the view/sunset. Only downside was that we had to go through the casino to get from the parking to the restaurant, a bit like running the gauntlet. On the way back to the parking lot we skipped the casino and took the longer way via the street.

    My wife and I went and had the antipasti for 2 and wow was it a lot of food! We were almost full just on that appetizer. We also ordered the Linguini and the Duck breast. The Linguini has giant size scallops and was definitely worth the price. My wife had the duck (something she never orders) and is loved how moist and tender it was. The first waiter that spoke to us talked very passionately about the food and where it was locally sourced. The only thing that was slightly confusing was the waiters changed on us in the middle of dinner service and it wasn't like the first waiter was on a break or anything, he was just at another table. We are definitely coming back!

    A wonderful place to dine on special occassions or "just because". I have dined at Tramonto many times over the years and am consistently pleased. The appetizers, entrees and deserts are full of flavor and well paired with sides. The service is fantastic. Although Fouad is my favorite, everyone works hard to make your experience special. Try it out but give yourself time to enjoy the full experience. Don't rush dinner for a show at Riverrock. Allow 2-3 hours and you will leave happy! Show-goers, get there for a 5:00 seating, don't rush a 6:00 one, you will feel rushed.

    Though the service was absolutely impeccable and the atmosphere relaxing with lovely views, the very promising menu did not deliver a quality meal. Being so handy to enjoy dinner before a show we returned a second time hoping for a better dining experience , but no. Bland, greasy and stale again. Too bad, with a new chef Tramonto's could justify the $35 a plate prices and truly be a five-star experience.

    Very generous portions. Very over dressed caesar salad. Lamb cooked perfectly. Would go back just for the lamb and ask for the salad to be very lightly dressed. Husband had the crab cake, very flat, which made it dry, tasty but dry. He also had the lasagna, which was excellent. The food is very very good. The service was poor. The wine is kept on a separate table. Our server was extremely slow at refilling. The glasses remained empty for a long time. Our dishes took way too long to be cleared. The food at Tramonto is first class, too bad the service isn't. At this price point we expected better and we aren't that picky, so that's how poor the service actually was. It started off fine, and went down hill fast once we were served.
