We have eaten at Bistecca several times. The food is always mouthwatering wonderful! The hand-crafted cocktails were outstanding. The wine list is sure to meet everyone's liking. Our server Michelle was excellent. She was very attentive and delayed service between courses which is always one of our pet peeves. We requested window seating when we made the reservation as we brought my in laws who had never dined there before. Our request was fullfilled; having a nice view of the racetrack. We will be back and we encourage anyone to try it! Well worth the money!

Food was poor. Steak was half inedible fat. That's not an exaggeration. The lobster was overcooked. Most everything was bland. The loaded mashed potatoes were the opposite and were overly salty. The server missed items and didn't bring things we ordered like salads and drinks. The cocktails we did get were made incorrectly and were very, very light on alcohol. We will not be returning.

Must qualify by saying dining was on the late evening of New Year's Eve. As would be expected, service was slow and not attentative. Failed to bring a second glass of wine. One of the guests ordered surf and turf and knowingly served a lobster tail with something wrong and admitted when taking off tail thought something was wrong. Had to then wait for a replacement lobster tail causing the other part of the meal to be somewhat cold. Ordered a dry aged rib eye bone in and was poorly cooked, more fatty than should have been. Not a good overall experience. Very disappointed given the total cost of the meal.

Ride the elevator from the Meadow casino or take the circular stairs to this steakhouse offering five star service with tempting steaks with a la cart shareable portions of sides such as sauteed mushrooms or spinach, various potato or other choices , well made drinks and desserts, everything designed for a great time.

If you have a slot host, you might get some help with the cost of your meal, which easily matches other high quality, high priced restaurants. Enjoy.

Well it would have been great had my husband got his food that was cooked and didn’t have to go back for chef to prepare another one. Also, I had to eat alone and by the time his order came back from kitchen I was through with my meal. Not a very good experience. I feel for the price you pay there should of been no error and if there was then I should of been offered a new meal as well so we could of dined together.
Thank you for listening

I’ve been to several steak houses or fine dining restaurants. The prices are up there with the rest of them. The food was just okay, nothing special. Got to have that top notch quality if you’re going to charge for it! (The oysters were an exception. Great size! Again, they just offer cocktail sauce with them. Pretty basic. ) The service was outstanding! The whole staff was noticeably polite, friendly, and professional. Ambience is great for dates!

Food was awesome, view of the track was nice. Sever went missing and hardly was around. Wasn't busy so not sure why she was lost. Watched other servers interact with their tables and was somewhat jealous to why I was not receiving the same experience

I loved our meals, but my boyfriends martini glass was served with a lipstick mark around the rim---had to be sent back----my brother in laws baked potato had to be sent back because it was cold---
When you fill out your reservations, they ask what the occasion is----when I put birthday, I assumed that they would bring out a little cake---even a cupcake----in the future, I'll have to call and ask if we can bring a cake---I saw one being brought to a table, so I think it's allowed, but I don't quite understand why you ask what the occasion is if nothing is done for that person---???
My sister brought birthday candles and asked that they be put on our desert---they forgot, so they put some whipped cream on a plate and put the candles on that---no big deal, but wasn't what my sister asked for---
All in all, it was a wonderful meal, but you asked-----

Have had better!
The cowboy rib eye was tough and although I had some good bites (they were delicious), my overall impression was that I have had many better steaks!

I always order medium rare so I rule out that factor.
Seriously there were some tough exterior and interior portions. Never before have I wrestled my knife to eat a rib eye

We went for a birthday dinner. The food and service were both very good. It was quiet compared to most other restaurants. It was wonderful to have a conversation without shouting. There's a nice amount of space between tables so it seemed more private and comfortable than most places. The manager also visited our table to ask how things were. We had a very enjoyable experience and I'd recommend it.

The table wasn't steady, it was like a playground see saw. The soda was flat, both mine and my friends steak were under cooked. My friend had hers cooked more, only to have it way over cooked when it returned. Waitress asked if she'd like another one, but she had already been waiting a good bit for the re fire, didn't have time for them to try again. Didn't want to be difficult, thought maybe they'd comp us somehow. But nobody, no manager or waitress offered. I mean it was a $43 steak, the rest of her dinner was done and was cold by the time her steak came back over done. (She likes eating her whole meal at the same time, not just one item while waiting for the rest of it to be cooked to her liking) but the bread and apatizer was good, go figure.

It is unfortunate that you have long walk through a Smokey atmosphere to get to the restaurant. Food and service was good, a little more attention from the wait staff would have been nice.
There was a constant booming noise from another part of the surroundings that was disruptive.
It is too bad clientele do not respect the atmosphere of the restaurant as some are wearing sweat pants, t-shirts and hats at the dinner table. This is disappointing for a restaurant with linens and professing to offer fine dining.
I will not be back soon.
