A word from The Pines Steakhouse - San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino
Located on the second floor of the San Manuel Casino, the critically acclaimed Pines Steakhouse has established itself as a hideaway for foodies seeking a dining adventure in the Inland Empire. Tucked away from the excitement of the casino gaming floor, behind giant frosted glass doors, the Pines has all the glitz and glamour of a Las Vegas style dining room. From the oversized scarlet red booths, to the gold lit bar top, the experience is pure decadence. The menu is modern American and features richly marbled center-cut U.S.D.A PRIME steaks including a 20 oz Bone in Rib eye and a 14 oz. boneless New York Strip Steak. Other menu highlights include tender 10 oz. Filet Mignon, slow roasted Prime Rib, and world class seafood such as Giant Alaskan Red King Crab Legs slathered in garlic butter, Scottish Salmon with Vera Cruz Butter, and Miso Chilean Sea bass. All entrees at the Pines (excluding pasta dishes) include the Chef's daily selection of fresh vegetables.

    The food was tasty. However, the service was ridiculously slow. After being seated, we were offered water while we waited on our waitress. Once our waitress came, she never bothered asking if she could get us anything to drink. During our meal, we were trying to spot our waitress to ask for more bread; however, she was nowhere to be found. When she finally came to our table to ask how our meal was going, we had already finished enough of it so that we didn't bother asking for the bread we wanted. As a result, we sat through our entire meal drinking water. Once we had finished our meal, we asked for the check and boxes. Our food was boxed for us and brought to our table. Our check did not come until about 10 minutes later.

    Have eaten at the pines before and the menu hasn't changed except for the addition of some small plates. Was misquoted on market price of seafood appetizer but only by $4. Wait staff was busy but spent a lot of time visiting with each other in side room which should have a door on it. Food remains good and as this casino has had a decline in other dinning areas it is the best selection for any business dinning. Unrushed environment for something romantic as well.

  • Not our best experience
    FrequentDiner
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Usually we love The Pines, but not this time. Waitress' assistant was not friendly at all. She wouldn't respond when we smiled or thanked her. Dirty salad & bread plates stayed on the table at least 15 minutes, drinks were not refilled until we asked, water glasses were picked up by the rim-where lips go. These might have been overlooked, but only 2 of 5 steaks came out as ordered. We all ordered medium or medium rare, but 2 were so rare they were basically inedible. We didn't send them back because I don't let food out of my sight once it's been served-too many horror stories of chefs messing with complained about food. We notified the manager, who reduced our bill in an effort to make things right.

    I have already recommended this restaurant to my co-workers. They were having computer difficulty with the tickets getting to the kitchen, so we had a long wait from when we ordered to actually receiving our food. The manager and server and bus boy were very kind in explaining about the problem and actually treated us. I would most definitely go back to this restaurant.

    We were greeted with smiles and taken to our table with no wait. The menus were electrically backlit and I appreciated that having bad eyes. The service was awsome and our food was promptly delivered to us. My wife had the sea bass and I had the rib eye.....(I should have gotten the sea bass as well, guys,always listen to your wife's). The casino have us 10% off with our players cards and I received an additional $10.00 off for my birthday. We had cheesecake for dessert and I don't like cheese cake but this was so good I ate half. We highly recommend this restraunt.

    This has ben one of my favorite restaurants and a welcome respite from the casino floor and noise. I have ordered the lamb chops many times and they have been one of my favorite dishes. However, they changed the method of preparation and the lamb chops now come with a sour taste that permeates throughout the plate. Even the rice was sour which my companion confirmed and the usually wonderful asparagus was over salted or also changed in some way. I suggest a warning to customers that they will not receive what they expect and to make their choice accordingly.

    New to the area. Found a great place to just relax & enjoy. Pines is elegant yet comfortable. Always greeted by bright friendly staff, seated away but not isolated from others. Server Amanda is on her game nightly! Super friendly yet highly professional. Support is very attentive, accurate and will still have a chat/laugh with you. Every dish we've tried has met or exceeded expectations. Wine is what it should be, but artisan bartenders deliver absolutly perfect cocktails. What they should be, not just rocket fuel. Can't beat the Prix Fixe offerings for value. Desserts to die for! Our favorite place to dine.

    The food was great in every way: taste, presentation, quality. Kudos to the chef and kitchen. The service was very good. The servers worked in a team and were very attentive and friendly. However, the decor of the restaurant was extremely plain/boring; it didn't feel like a steakhouse and did not match the quality of the food.

    Party of 4. 1. Rib Eye Steak ordered Medium, served Rare. 2 Sirloin Steak ordered Medium-Well, Served Rare. Both Steaks sent back returned to table in same condition (not acceptable as re-served). Waited in excess of 1 hour for our Meals, requested additional bread which took 25 minutes. 3. 3rd Diner's Rib Eye Steak was prepared as ordered. 4. 4th Diner's Salmon was prepared as ordered. Served Skimpy amount of Condiments to top Baked Potatoes. 2 out of 4 Meals were not acceptable as served so rating reflects that . We have dined at the Pines Numerous times in the past with a rating of very good to excellent. This was our worst experience ever. It is questionable if we will return.

    When we were just considering a visit to San Manuel to celebrate fathers day, I went on Open Table and booked dinner at The Pines. We did head to the casino with the family making it the most expensive fathers day ever!!!! Although my daughter was hungry prior to the 5pm opening of the restaurant and the buffet was calling her, I knew holding out for the delicious, quality food at The Pines would be worth it. It was all perfect fulfilling my hopes and promises to my family. Although there are many choices, I find the fixed menu to have everything I desire and the price is only three pulls on a max bet playing a nickel slot machine. Crystal was exceptional serving party.

    Despite the food and service being very good as always on arrival the hostess tells us before she seats us we must pay cash for our dinner because the casino credit card system had been down for two days. She could have told me in advance because I called an hour earlier to confirm my booth request & let them know we were running 15 minutes late! Of course we had cash on us because we'd planned to gamble but I honestly would have stopped at an ATM to get more money and avoid the high fees to use their ATM. The whole thing sounds fishy that a casino of that size could have no credit card access for two days!

    Great food, offering prix fixe menu for the best deal possible at this restaurant. They need to play more upscale music. We dine here at least twice a year, usually for special occasions. If we could bring people under 21 we might eat here more often. I really love the food and wish that all places could make it taste this good.

    Went there for a late B-day dinner 40 minutes before the Kitchen was closing. The ambiance is nice and eating in a circular booth gives it the romatic touch. Service was good not exceptional cause our waitress forgot 2 requests that were made during the dinner. The food was delicious! ordered the 20oz rib-eye med well with steamed veggies and mash potatoes. Cant stop the raving about the food. Have t say one of the best places I have eaten where the food taste did not dissapoint. Definitely a place to eat at if you are at the casino.
