    My husband and I dine at the Charcoal Room frequently. We usually request to be seated in Diane's section. The food is always exceptional and the service is always great. We have introduced the Charcoal Room to friends that have recently moved to town and no one has ever been disappointed. We will definitely be back!

    Although the menu at Charcoal is similar or the same as many of the Station restaurants, for some reason Charcoal cooks it better and the service exceeds the other station restaurants. I love dropping in for their Steakhouse Chopped Salad and always ask that my steak be done Oscar style. The wine list is excellent and it's just a great place to relax and enjoy the food.

    Ralph has been a fantastic host/server on many occasions. He knows the menu and offers some great suggestions even if I interrupt him and say, "You lost me at sweet potatoes." I love the prime rib at Charcoal Room and their oysters are fresh, plump and of good quality with plenty of horseradish for my liking. I suggest the Malbec as it is fantastic with the rare prime rib which has a nice crust and flavor.

    The food is above average, our server (Patsy) has been our steady server since we started dining there and she has been very predictable, very attentive, friendly and efficient. Janni, the manager for about one year, has done good things with the Charcoal Room. She is friendly, greets her diners and pays attention to their needs and their opinions. Overall, the Charcoal Room at Santa Fe Hotel & Casino is the place to go when you wants an above average dinner.

    Our server was not very good. Had to call him over to take our order because he wouldn't come back to the table. The ambiance was not what I expected. It was very loud not quiet and romantic like I thought it would be. The TV on the wall with the football game on was very tacky. If I wanted that I would go to a bar. I bit into my bread and bit down on a hard piece of plastic. The chef came out and apologized. The food otherwise was delicious. I won't be returning. It was a little over priced for the experience.

    Great middle-upscale restaurant without strip prices. Great for NW residents wanting to dine close to home and be off strip. If you are looking for a great steak, The Charcoal Room will prepare one for you! Everything we ordered was outstanding - from the salads, to the calamari to the main entree's. The pretzel bread was especially good!

    I took my wife here for her birthday. They had a new item (Calimari) on their appitizer menu this week. It was fabulous. It was moist and tender with outstanding flavor. If you like Calimari, be sure you try it. My wife ordered the sea scallops and I had the salmon. Both dishes were great.

    The Charcoal Room at the Santa Fe has been our "go to" place for about 11 years. We usually go for birthdays and special occasions. We also take out-of-town guests there. This was the fourth time my guest has exclaimed, "The best steak I have ever had!" That should be recommendation enough.

    I was impressed by the ribeye in that it was cooked to perfection. It was also served with a sauce however that was served on the side rather than on the steak. A ribeye is a cut that usually needs nothing but it's own flavor which in this case was fantastic.

    Our waiter ignored us for long periods of time, probably thinking 2 women would not tip well. We had to flag him down several times. He apparently left and another server presented us with the bill. However, we did tip well.

    I made a reservation for a dinner to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday, which I indicated on the reservation. He was wished a happy birthday when we checked in with the hostess, but no mention was made after that. The server was pleasant and a manager (I assume) even stopped by the table to ask, "everything okay?" as we dined on an appetizer, champagne, steak, etc. Thinking that a surprise dessert would be presented as we have experienced at other restaurants, we declined to order dessert. Our check was presented, we paid and left. I was very disappointed that this nicely appointed restaurant couldn't even give us a scoop of ice cream with a candle on top.

    Lived in this area for over 2 years and try to avoid heading down to strip as much as possible. Charcoal Room brings great food to the locals of the northern part of town. We had great salads steaks and dessert. Only complaint would be service. If you are used to the quality of servers at finer restaurants you will be let down. We will return!

    It's always fun to visit the Charcole Room. It's great because we love to use the casino, then go into eat. Same location. We had the best lamp chops and blackened salmon, which we split. Love their wedge salad. They make their own blue cheese dressing. Delicious. The vegetable servings are large enough to split. The baked potatoes are very large !! !! The service is excellent, and everyone is professional. We use it when we want to treat ourselves, and also on special occasions. We'll go next week when our son is visiting from Denver.

    We have eaten at the charcoal room many times and this was a very disappointing visit. Our server, Kevin, was not told we were seated for over 25 minutes. Normally the steaks are excellent however they were very dry and not very flavorful. My daughter refused to eat hers because it was to crunchy! Overall this experience was not a great one. We have always had excellent service and food in the past, even on other Holidays. This was a disappointment.
