Had an early dinner last night before going to a show. Our server Cristina was amazing, sweet, attentive, and very professional . Had a great mojito and fried calamari appetizer which was spot on and a generous portion. The Chilean sea bass was perfectly cooked and so delicious! The braised lamb shank was huge and also perfect. Overall a wonderful dining experience, no room for dessert! This is an upscale restaurant and priced accordingly. As they say, you get what you paid for!

My sisters and I dined at Bistro Napa in honor of my sister's birthday. Unfortunately we couldn't find our younger sister anywhere and we decided to wait at the restaurant where we had a reservation. She was not answering texts or her phone and we were getting worried. The wonderful maitre'd and waiter notified casino security who took a report. They let us sip wine and water while we waited to see if there was a report. I again decided to take a look around the casino and found her safe and sound! (She had lost her phone). Kudos to the restaurant staff for giving us the time and space, and for working with casino security. Everything went well after that! The veal piccata and the dessert doughnuts were excellent.

The maître d’ was very friendly. We were first introduced to the waiter, Joseph and his assistant Damien. It’s always fun to be in a classy restaurant. But we were a little disappointed because another table that sat down about 15 minutes after us was served first. Joseph did apologize for the wait. Damon was super attentive. I had the Seabass which didn’t have much flavor but was a large portion. My husband had the Crab lump soup which he said was absolutely amazing. We did get a pre-appetizer salad from the chefs creation, I could’ve had a bowl of that that was super good. I highly recommend this restaurant but would add to request some lemon for your fish.

The restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday evening! Pretty noisy. Service was good but slow, probably because the kitchen was overloaded. People obviously want to get out after Covid!

Food was delicious. The short rib melted in your mouth. The filet was so tender and juicy. We enjoyed the atmosphere. It’s a little pricey but we rarely get out, so it was worth it to us.

We especially ordered prime rib, one of the most expensive entrees on the menu. It was tough, and definite not up to defining prime beef. The rest of the meal was very nice.

From the moment we walked to the host stand until we left the restaurant, we had an incredible experience. The wait staff was prompt & continually checked on us. The food was absolutely amazing. My filet was cooked perfectly and my husband's prime rib was one of the best he's had. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and were treated to a lovely strawberry cake. The icing on the "cake" was as we were leaving the restaurant, the chef thank US from coming in for dinner. Top notch!!!

We have been to Bistro Napa several times and have always been quite pleased with both the service and the food. This time, not so much. While the ambiance and service remained excellent, I was disappointed with my dinner. I ordered the 14 oz. Prime Rib. While it was definitely big enough and was properly cooked (medium rare), it had absolutely NO TASTE. Really. It was almost completely flavorless. I like prime rib and have enjoyed it here and at the Atlantis Steak House. This time it was very disappointing. In fact, I have had better prime rib at neighborhood casinos for $12.95!

The service was excellent. The staff was very friendly and our waiter was excellent with recommendations and knowing the menu very well. My only complaint about the experience would have to be the short ribs that my family ordered. The ribs was cooked well but the seasoning and sauce was very salty. The meat was overly salty and the mashed potatoes underneath did not help balance out the flavor. Those that ordered the dish were only able to eat about half. Other than that, wonderful experience.

A beautiful restaurant. Service impeccable. Unfortunately my meal was mediocre. Started with prawn cocktail and crab cakes. Prawns were good except one was not cleaned very well. Crab cakes very good. I had filet and crab legs for $120. For that price it should have been much better! The crab was literally tasteless. even dipped in butter. I had to send back the filet because it was raw inside, no exaggeration. Same filet was cooked more and was returned and it was tasty. My partner had the sea bass and that was scrumptious! The bread served with meal was also excellent. Guess I just ordered the wrong thing. I was comped two glasses of wine in reparation Would I go again? Maybe, and order fish. But only if the Atlantis steakhouse was sold out like this particular evening.

The Bistro was quite crowded for a Tuesday night. Most likely because everybody has been cooped up for a year. I started with an artichoke wedge salad which was crisp with a refreshing dressing. I had the braised lamb shank and it was done to perfection, tender meat and a crisp exterior. The dessert ( I can't remember the name) sautéed bananas with gelato, whipped cream and fruits was quite a presentation. Enough for two. I was tempted to order the pink cotton candy that I saw being carried by waiters. It reminded me of the country fairs I attended years ago. Single glass wine was very good with an ample pour. Prices for food and wine were certainly not the loss leaders that once were used to attract people to the casino but were at levels one would expect in a fine dining restaurant.
