What a disappointment. Booked this for a birthday dinner with friends for my wife and it was a terrible experience. Super slow service and food was not good, one meal was completely burned and brought out that way. Cannot recommend this place

Our dining experience was 2 hours of nothing but, AWESOMENESS! We both started off with the Wedge Salad that was excellent! We then had the boneless Ribeye, that was to die for! For our sides we had the Brussels sprouts, (YUM) and a baked potato. The service was exceptional! Tara did a wonderful job! The staff treated us like royalty! The ambiance was so romantic and the track scenery was nice! It was the best 2 hour dining experience I have ever had! Relaxing and not rushed! I highly recommend to everyone!

Food and service was great. Disappointed that the management allowed a group of regulars to be loud and very obnoxious. It was obvious that the management knew them all where in first name basis. Very sad they kept serving a table of loud drunk people and allowed them to disturb others.

We had filet and prime rib which were good but slightly over done. We also ordered mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts and this not so much. I love Favorites and was very disappointed this time. The mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts had very heavy garlic in them which left me with that taste masking everything Also the Brussels sprouts were extremely greasy, it was puddled in bottle of bowl. Service was very slow but don’t believe it was the servers fault. Favorites is my favorite place to go for a steak but this time just disappointed.

The service was poor. We were seated a few minutes prior to 7:30 pm. It was suppose to be a birthday celebration for my wife instead it turned out an hour later still waiting for the meal which was ordered. On two separate occasions I inquired about the meal which was ordered but could not get a reasonable response. One server said “ I will find your server.” I felt like I was not important enough to spend 30 seconds to check on dinner. However, others that were seated after me were being served. I cannot comment on the food because it never made its way to the table. The severs were rude and it appears that they were not focused on the customers needs. Would I ever go back to Favorites or recommend this restaurant to anyone, absolutely not. Poor management of service and it appears that the chef do not have a clue of what’s happening in his restaurant.

There was a large party and management was not prepared for it with staff. Unfortunately we were not part of the party. After 25 minutes of no server acknowledging us, our busser was fantastic and took our drink order. The bar was out of the elder flower liquor, which is a specialty drink. 35 minutes later we we served our food. We’ve had inattentive staff before, but nothing like this. The Manager never came to our table. Her/his staff was left to apologize and offered to make up the difference between our voucher and the check. We will return because our food was delicious.

After a bad experience the previous week, we were convinced to come back with a comp. We were surprised that the service was worse than before. There were 4 in our party. The server seemed stressed and completely forgot to put one of our entrees. She brought out the crab Oscar, but the filet came nearly 20 minutes later. By then, the crab Oscar was cold and we had to ask for a new one. We ordered 2 desserts, both the same. They were incomplete. The response from the server, “the kitchen must have plated it wrong”. I’m not sure how that happened considering she prepared it table side. I guess I shouldn’t complain about a free meal, but it was to make up for a previous bad experience. The irony is that this experience was worse.

Something has happened. We used to enjoy eating at Favorites, but our last two visits have been very disappointing. On this visit the service was the worse that we ever had. The waitress was "training" someone new, but I think someone with experience should be training her. We had jumbo shrimp appetizers, they were eaten right away, but we had to look at the empty shells the entire meal. They were never cleared off the table. One of our party ordered the nights "special", seared sea bass on a bed of mashed potatoes and crab meat. The sea bass was luke warm, and the potatoes were ice cold. The meal must of have been sitting a long time before being served. We never seen the waitress, or her helper again, not even walking the floor, until she finally showed up to ask if we wanted dessert! The other three meals were fine, as they were standard items on the menu. Felt bad for our fourth dinner person.

The waitress was nice one minute then acted annoyed with us another minute. We never could understand why. The other wait staff was very nice at all times.
We ordered martinis and they did not seem as full as they usually are. I ordered another drink this time from their specialty menu. The waitress acted like she had no idea what I was talking about. When I got the bill, the specialty drink I ordered was listed as a White Russian for $8. My specialty drink was supposed to be $6. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to deal with her.

Unfortunately, the past two times dining at Favorites has been disappointing. The steaks have been tough even though they were cooked medium. The potatoes were hard, not cooked all the way The seasoning on the steak and mushrooms was so excessive that the salt flavor burned your mouth. Not sure what has happened. There was two of us and it has taken 3 hours to eat. Usually 1 hr 15 minutes or longer to get waited on and served. Very disappointed.

Having been there several times in the past, we were very disappointed to see that Calamari was dropped from the appetizer menu. It was one of our favorites. Our server this visit, Emily, was great. One of us ordered the "special", which was a rolled up stuffed flank steak. When served the meat was cooked to order, but after the first, and then the second bite, it tasted like someone had dumped a salt shaker on it. So another separate entree was ordered to replace it.

The waiter was very slow. The food arrived about 30 to 40 minutes after ordered. Prime rib was over cooked and cold. Waiter never returned to table to check or refill drinks. Another server filled drinks. Another server gave us dessert menus after we requested it. No one came for order, so we skipped dessert and then had hard time getting our bill so we could leave.

Service was terrible. Our waitress took our order and we didn’t see her again. We had to flag her down to get our bill which she could only tell us the total but couldn’t produce a hard copy to bring to our table. The food was ok but I’ve had much better there.

I have eaten at Favorites many, many times. It's always been delicious with excellent service. So, I took my friend to dinner there for her 70th birthday. The service was extremely slow. Our server was nice but he was literally brand new and very inexperienced. I mentioned something to the hostess as my friend waited on her martini for over 15 minutes. I could see it sitting on the bar but no one was able to deliver it. The hostess informed me they were "having staffing issues." Someone else delivered our food that admitted he didn't even work in the restaurant, but another part of the casino. He also shared that they were having staffing issues. Our food tasted fine but it was cold. Our waiter struggled to open a bottle of wine at our table. I felt sorry for him. He was extremely nervous. This was not a good experience. It was terribly disappointing!

We were sat at our table immediately upon arriving. We weren’t given any menus or water. The dining room wasn’t packed and had plenty of open tables. None of the waiters acknowledged us and after 15 minutes of not being waited on, we left. As we left, the hostess, that just sat us told us to have a nice night. I told here, it would have been nice if we could have been waited on during the 15 minutes we sat at our table being ignored. She had nothing to say. We actually left the casino and went to The Precinct and received the best service ever! Favorites could learn a thing or two about fine dining from Ruby’s restaurants. I’m just glad my wife and I didn’t let this ruin our date night, we just laughed about it as we walked to the car. Definitely won’t be back to the restaurant and probably not the casino either, we’ll just go to Jacks and eat at one of the establishments downtown.

Steak was very good when it finally arrived, my wife’s chicken was just so-so. Service was extremely slow and we were never asked to refill drinks. I even set my glass on the edge of the table hoping someone would notice an empty glass.
