  • This Restaurant is a WINNER!!

    From the moment we entered the establishment, we were welcomed with warm and genuine greetings. The menu has something for everyone's taste and the prices are very good for the amount of food received. The early bird menu makes for an even better experience since it is three courses for $15! And the choices are varied with a chef's special also being featured on the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a warm, friendly feel to their dining experience!

    The food is top notch - much improved from prior years in my opinion. I find it one of the City's best restaurants now, with very reasonable pricing. It probably would have been easier to hear one another if our group of 6 had been seated at a booth, but everyone still enjoyed themselves. The bread, flatbread pizza, meat and pasta were all excellent and servings weren't skimpy. There didn't seem to be quite enough servers that evening so service was a bit slow, making the meal take longer than we anticipated. I think that was unusual, however, and will not deter me from the easy decision to return.

  • Needs a Good Cleaning
    potcasinodiner
    Dined on 11/11/2014
    Would recommend this restaurant to someone who is already in the casino and is hungry, provided this space gets a good cleaning. After numerous visits, flatbreads seem to be consistently hot and fresh, service seems to be improving at each subsequent visit, but there was enough dust surrounding our booth to write our names in and a variety of crumbs scattered across the seats. Cleaning needs to become a priority, or we would not want to continue dining there.

    The waitress assigned to our table of four was wholly dispassionate about her job. She did not greet us. Did not introduce herself. Did not suggest an appetizer or beverage (we did have drinks with us already that we had purchased at the bar). When asked about a menu item her response was "I don't know. I never had anyone order that." On top of this the food was average. Because of this experience none of us will be returning.

    We stayed at the new Potowatomi Hotel and had dinner at Wild Earth before going to a concert. Our server was informative and explained early dinner choices. The soup of the day was delicious, flavorful, the chicken Parmesan was moist and tasty, and the chocolate gelato was amazing. We will visit again.

    We both enjoyed the atmosphere, comfortable seating, quiet & yet we saw several people having a "fun time" without disturbing the others. Got the impression they were "regulars" who obviously enjoy the place. Service was excellent & our waitress was very helpful with suggestions & explanations. Good selections of both food & wine. Chicken Parmesan was tasty & well prepared without over cooking. Shrimp Scampi was just ok for me...little too much wine & not enough garlic & butter. Desserts were OUT OF THIS WORLD! Too full to eat right after dinner so we took a few up to the room for a late night snack! Best Chocolate cheesecake ever...lite, not too sweet, PERFECT! We'll be back for the Lasagna!!! Thank you all!!!

    My girlfriend and I went to dinner Saturday night, and it was great! We had a 7 pm reservation and we got in right away. The wait staff was very nice and quick. We ordered our meal and not even a few minutes later we got our salads and bread, and shortly after got our meal, we didn't have to wait long for anything really. The food was great, and services was beyond expectation, I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good Italian cuisine experience.

    Great food experience,six at our table with four different entrees. Food came out hot. The six members all said the food was full of flavor, hot, and just the right portion size for their appetite. The restaurant had quite a few large parties this evening and was quite loud. Aside from that our dining experience was very good. Thank you, bob

    Typically, the food and the service at Wild Earth is quite good, but on this night - the service was extremely slow - especially since it was a slow night. We had to wait for a drink menu and after the drinks were ordered it took about 15 minutes to get drinks! When the food arrived, it was only luke warm. The quality of the food was very good, it just was not hot. If this would have been my first trip to Wild Earth... it probably would have been my last. But I know that service has been better in the past. I only regret that I did not catch the waitress's name. I can only tell you that it was 7:00 on Thursday, and we were in a corner booth.

    Was actually shocked at how poor the service was. Our waitress must have been hiding as the patrons at her other two tables also looked disturbed by her absence. The food was okay.....nothing special. We expected better. Restaurant needs a sound barrier system as it is very loud. We won't be back, but will continue returning to Dream Dance. You pay a bit more there but you get what You pay for unlike at wild Earth. Hopefully changes will be made or otherwise we cannot see this restaurant being a success.

    Just had my second dinner at Wild Earth this last Friday evening. The food was terrific. My son and I shared the shrimp flatbread as an appetizer. Just terrific! I chose the seafood cannoli and my son had the lasagna. Both were just great! We ordered a bottle of chianti, and I usually don't care for reds. I loved it. Service was good, and we had a very enjoyable evening.

    We were the first table seated. The spice mix served with olive oil with the fresh rustic bread was OUTSTANDING. The salad was good, very fresh. The seafood cannelloni was very good - had leftovers. The flank steak was also good, but not sure we'd have that again. Thought the Sicilian strong beans served with it were hard. Willing to go back again and try something different. Very nice atmosphere.

    Would not go back again! Waited SEVERAL minutes for our waitress to come over. When she did her first comment was "oh, let me get you some bread" and she disappeared again for a while. Came back with the bread and Finally took our order. We got our appetizer BEFORE our drinks. We had to ask the helper to get them. Food was nothing special. Dessert was the best part of the meal. Would not spend my hard earned money there again!!! Totally disappointed.

    Our waitress had way to many tables to take care of and they were training new employees all on a Friday night. I would've thought training would be done earlier in the week. My food was not as described by the waitress and had to be sent back to the kitchen. My husband's food had hair on it and had to be sent back as well. I was a bit flustered with the fresh bread that they serve you as you wait on your entrée because they put way too much flour on the bottom of the pan when they baked it so that when you pick it up flour is just falling all over the place. Chunks of flour went in my mouth on my first bite which had me quite upset.
