    Dined on 10/23/2013
    The food was very good. Salads were delicious (the steakhouse salad and the Caesar). Steaks were cooked perfectly...not the best ever, but adequate. Side dishes were a little lackluster. The potatoes au gratin were done in chunks; the gratins I love are better done with thin slices of potatoes and the cheese topping was negligible. The creamed corn tasted sugared. Also, both sides were miniscule (even though the waiter said adequate for sharing) for the price. For service, other tables were told of specials and presented with a desert tray, rather than a menu. We were not. I don't understand the discrepancy, as I am a good tipper and we were dressed as well as, or better than, others in the restaurant.

    The food, and the service here are excellent. From the moment you are seated, until the time you leave you are treated as a VIP. This is a fine dining experience in a casino environment that is quite a gem. The Queen cut Prime and the New York steak are both melt in your mouth delicious. A great "go to" place to take someone for a few steps you want to make feel special.

    We had an enchanted evening at Steakhouse at the Spa. The creamed spinach was amazing, aged New York strip & ribeye served to perfection, but they were out of our #1 & #2 choices for wine.. Settling on a bottle of Ravens Wood, our late night steak dinner was complete. The service was also great, with incredibly friendly servers & bussers.

  • Dining With Royalty
    BatmanAZ
    Dined on 6/23/2013
    Our reservation time was 30 minutes too late for the nightly special on prime rib. Despite that, we selected the prime rib (Queen Cut rather than the King Cut). It was delicious! We were very surprised when our meals came and the Queen Cut was so large it should have been called the "Queen and Her Court Cut". The wait staff was very attentive. The ambiance was rich despite the "dress code" of "smart casual". BTW, flip flops and t-shirts quality as some of the the nearby tables established. Don't worry, neither the food, wine, service nor the restaurant's atmosphere are compromised as a result. We will dine here again.

    Beautifully done, low light dining room. Especially loved the backlit menu pages and credit card placards. Was a bit dissapointed in the NY Strip (not quite as lean or thick as it could be) and the demi glace sauce was sort of concentrated in flavor and a bit pasty. Salads, sides, wine and cocktails were all superb.

    My daughter and I spent Mother's Day Weekend at the Spa Casino, for our annual girls getaway. We always have our special dinner on Saturday night to avoid the usual problems on Sunday. We both had the Filet which is always exceptional. Also, my daughter fell in love with the Truffle Mash Potatoes. She ordered the Langoustine which is always a great addition to the Filet.

    Had been here before and the service was a little better the first time. Took quite a while to get attention and then everything was fine. For me, give me a cocktail and some bread and I am incredibly patient. Those two things took about 10 minutes. However, the food is so good I ended up not caring that much! If this was a less expensive restaurant, it wouldn't have mattered at all.

    Surprisingly good food -- the sour cherry reduction on my yellowtail was delicious, although the fish was a bit overdone. My brother's prime rib was wonderful, and the bread and salads were great, too. Nice wine list as well! We didn't expect a place so nice, right off of the casino, but there you go. And the price was quite reasonable.

    The food here has been consistently good but the service has, more often than not, been disappointing. In the past we've had a waiter who couldn't hear well but at least behaved like a waiter. This time the waiter could hear perfectly well but didn't seem to know what to do after taking our order. He didn't even have to bring the food to the table...someone else did. We got a perfunctory "everything ok?" after he saw us eating our food but other than that he was absent until we flagged him for the check. I won't go back. Prices have risen to exceed even those of Ruth's Chris. Good food here...but fine dining? Go to Ruth's for true fine dining at better prices....

    While the food was delicious as always, our server was not apt to handle our large group and put us 2hrs behind schedule. This amounted to increased limo fees and caused us much stress. It acutally ruined our well planned and very special evening. It was unfortunate this happened to us and it was very unfair and costly. It is unfortunate as we had the same server before and she was lovely, but this will definately make me and the 20 other diners think twice before visiting again. Sometimes catering to the customers needs must be put first.

    The noise from the casino is very annoying. Poor planning in design. This is a very expensive steak house and the ambience is destroyed by the constant noise of slot machines.

    Food was good and service were excellent as always. I have been here aboyut 8 times over the past three years. This restaurant has excellent service. They know when to come by and ask if you need something and they know when to stay away. This was the first time I got the filet. The rub was a bit salty. If you are not into salt, ask them to go light or skip the rub. But the filet melted in my mouth. Delicious. Ken was a fantastic server. We started with oyters on the half shell- perfectly cold and fresh. Delicious. You will not be disappointed.

    The restaurant has no ambience. The "artwork" on the ceiling looks like re-bar used in construction. The initial drink service was poor, but service did improve as the meal went on. The steak was under-done, and lacked flavor. The onion side dish was not noteworthy. Nothing about the meal, except for the desert, made me want to take another bite.

    Generally, the food was great - their Yorkshire pudding might have been better "not-served"......it was not good. The rest of the meal: food, service, value was spot-on! Because The Steakhouse is within a Casino, you could hear the slot machines "ringing" throughout dinner - even though we were in the back of the restaurant. If you are looking for an intimate dining experience - this might not be the right place. "The Steakhouse" has a sister restaurant, at a sister casino (in Aqua Caliente), that has a nearly (if not precisely) identical menu.....and it is situated in that casino where it is very quiet - and the food and service is comparable. If you want quiet and intimate - go to their sister place. We'll go back.
