    We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was the first and best resturant we have been to since its our second time visiting Atlantic city. We had fun, our server was the best her name was Maribel she took great care of us and also gave great recommendation on the menu. We do look forward to the next time.

    I am a regular at Safari when I go to Taj at least three times a year. My last visit was a disaster. Disappointed and sadden in waitress and meal!! What a disaster. For what it cost, it should of been a feast like it normally is but not this time!! So the next night went to Showboat to eat with friends and had the seafood buffet which was out of this world and and put Taj food to shame this time. Never thought I would say anything bad about Taj because I loved everything about it! Rooms, food, entertainment, employees! Well I guess the saying goes: All good things dont last forever!!! Good bye Safari!

    I enjoyed the food during my first visit to Safari Steakhouse. Our steaks were prepared to exactly the right temperature and tasted great. The "safari" theme in the dining room is nice. Unfortunately, the service was surprisingly poor. Our server disappeared for long periods of time, never offered refills, and didn't bother to bring us some of the things we ordered. Even though the food was good, I will probably not return because of the service.

    I've been a member at the Taj for over 20 years and have frequently dined at the Safari, always enjoyed the wonderful ambiance, great service and fine food. I've rated my last visit with a four star, although I realize that the reason for that could not in any way have been avoided by the very pleasant and efficient staff. It was most disturbing for me to try to enjoy the wonderful meal with an extremely loud and disruptive group of people that could be heard throughout the entire restaurant and made my visit a very unpleasant experience.

    While the service and ambiance were fine, I was a little disappointed in our steaks. My husband and I both ordered the bone in filet mignon, medium rare. While the steak was very tender, the doneness was more akin to medium. Also, the "bone-in" part of the steak technically was just 2 more ounces of bone, no additional meat.

    My sister and I visited Safari Steakhouse during our trip to Atlantic city. Everything we ordered from appetizers to desserts was delicious, perfectly cooked and served by our wonderful waiter, Peter, in a timely manner. During our meal Peter did tell us that Safari would be closing, but Robert's Steakhouse (more centrally located) will be opening in the fall.

    Dined on 7/20/2012
    As has happened on at least two occasions lately, the date that I requested while filling out your form was changed somehow when I clicked onward. I made this reservation for July 21 and double checked when I filled out the time and date, but did not do that when I received the confirmation. As a result, I showed up at the Safari Steakhouse with no reservation on a Saturday night, and of course they had no reservation. They said that there would be a wait but almost immediately they had a booth for us---conceding probably that my date's mother looked like she was about to faint (long haul through the casino to get to the restaurant), the staff got us a booth and we were seated. What happens with the 1,000 points??

    The service was impeccable. The menu was varied and offered a great steak house selection. They offered a price fixed menu that was just perfect combination of quality and quantity. Portions we hug. The dessert menu was fabulous – we had Grand Marnier Soufflé and Crème Brule that was out of this world!

He did not even ask a second time for the others to order a drink. They did not hear him the first time because of the noise and they were looking at the menus. When he came back with two drinks. I had to tell him to take the others drink order before we ordered our dinner. He acted like we were bothering him.

    We have eaten here quite a few times and have always been very pleased with both the service and the food. Although the food was still top shelf, the service was terrible. Our waiter did not bring all of our food and when asked for it brought the wrong thing. Our friend wanted horseradish sauce with his meal and it did not come until he was finished. Two had ordered baked potatoes and they did not come with the meal and when requested again, they brought mashed and gave it to a person who had not even ordered the potatoes, the baked finally arrived as we were finishing. We would dine here again but would make sure we did not have the same waiter.
