Steak was ordered medium rare at best it was medium very close to medium well. Waitress was friendly but overall very poor. She didn't keep drinks full or check on us at all. We actually had to get up to find her to receive our check. Very poor experience at what was supposed to be a nice restaurant. The manager did cook another steak and comp two fresh sides as would clearly be expected.

We dined in Favorites for a birthday and had a view of track, lovely late summer evening, food delicious, able to converse without distracting noise. Memorable! Yes, we had some early fun in the casino.
Thank you!

At this time I cannot recommend the restaurant, the service was terrible (DAWN), we waited over 35 minutes from when we were sat down till our server (DAWN) even made contact, she walked bye 8 or 9 times, but not one word from her, finally got a tea and a water 44 minutes in to the ordeal, the people next to us said they had been waiting on their food for over 50 minutes, and then when it came the woman's chicken and noodles were cold, and the man had ordered a steak medium and when he cut into it the steak was extra well done, he sent it back and received his new steak about 10 minutes after his wife had finished her meal. My wife ordered a 8oz filet medium, and it came well done, I ordered the Spaghetti and meatballs and when I cut the first meatball open the entire thing fell apart, and the noodles were dry and had been microwaved, the noodles were all one piece of food, and then after having to ask to please get me another iced tea, I waited over 10 minutes on a refill after my glass had already been empty for at least 10 minutes before that, after we were just about done Dawn brought us some bread and oil ad butter, I was pretty sure we should of got that during our hour and 5 minute wait for service and food, we got the bill and asked for a piece of chocolate cake to go and was informed by Dawn they were out of chocolate cake. "What a Surprise" one of the worst meals and poor service my wife and i have ever experienced.

This was our first time coming to your restaurant And also for my friends. As soon as we walked into this restaurant the ambience was wonderful it’s a beautiful restaurant. The young lady status immediately at our table of six we did have to sit there for five or more minutes for somebody to come over and take our drink order,But as soon as he did that our food order was ordered everything went accordingly. The waiter was very dry not very engaging during our time at your facility. The food was very delicious and would recommend your establishment to all my friends

I have eaten there several times and love their prime rib. It is nice they will let you split that with another person. I always as for Dawn to serve us—she is courteous and very helpful. I look forward to my next meal there.

This is a hidden food gem. Recommend coming here for a great dining experience even if you don’t gamble. Everything we have tried has been fabulous - the caprese salad is beyond compare, great steaks, and some of the best Italian around.

It took 40 minutes from the time we sat down until our order was taken. We didn't even receive menus to look through before the server came to ask us for our order.

Otherwise, everything was average and we'd still return.

Once again Chef Josh produced an awesome meal. I had the lasagne and gnocchi and both were awesome. My wife had the boneless Ribeye and it was done to perfection. She added the mac & cheese along with the crab oscar both delighted her taste buds. We each had a caesar salad and we split the crab cake blt appetizer. Needless to say we had leftovers to take home. Our server Robert was great and very attentive as always. Overall it was a great dining experience. I would recommend Favorites at Belterra Place for anyone wanting an exceptional dining experience.

The server was told it was our first time eating at this location. She offered us wine but nothing after that just served us water. The spaghetti was awfully. Had no flavor and was dry. Desert we got two different kind. We ordered the ice cream she didn’t ask what flavor just brought us out a kind she thought we wanted. She was very rude to another employee several times in front of guest. We both ordered pasta maybe steak is your specialty.

Sat outside Sunday evening. The service was excellent and the food was the best we've ever had there.. both filets were cooked to a perfect mid-rare and the scallops were incredible. Best steakhouse on the Eastside by far.

Food was fine, Waitress not so much, she did not check on us, had to ask to have our drinks refilled, her appearance was not conducive to the environment she was working in.

Food definitely was not worth the value. Over cooked and not up to quality. Was told they had a lot of turnover in the kitchen. Very obvious! Won’t be visiting anytime soon.

First visit and we will absolutely go back. We were pleasantly surprised - it was delicious and better than we expected. Also, not too loud so we could talk at the table and hear everyone!

Our server was wonderful. The appetizers were great as well as the sides. Three of us ordered steaks and the fourth had salmon.
We ordered steaks medium rare. All three were cooked well done. Only one of us complained. They offered to cook another one but we didn’t have time to wait. They took it off the bill.
The flavor of the steaks were great but unfortunately they were all very dry due to being overlooked.

We might try it again but will make sure they understand we don’t want overcooked steaks.

Excellent value. We ordered small portions for both of our dinners and we were surprised by the size of the meals. The Manhattan was sent back because of too much Vermouth but second drink was good. Both meals were pasta dishes and were top quality. Try the shrimp cocktail for a wonderful appetizer. I recommend this restaurant for a good value.

The food was not good for what would be expected from a restaurant with entrees that are $18 and up.
We had Eggplant Parmesan which was okay at best. The Spaghetti and Meatballs, was a nice size serving, however the meatballs were salty.
The service was good.

Service was good. Wine was good (recommended by server). Bread was amazing! Ambiance was lovely.
I love eggplant parmesan and was looking forward to trying it based on a review I read. Nope. Way overcooked and dry. Huge disappointment!
Said nothing to the server. I regret that. Doubt I'll be back.

I've eaten at Favorites several times and the food is generally very good. Unfortunately this visit (and my last visit a couple weeks earlier) the service was extremely slow/inattentive. On this visit, from the time I placed my order it was 25 minutes before bread or the salad was brought to my table. The server kept saying bread was baking but I continued to see other servers bringing out baskets of bread one after the other. Also the salad was very warm. It had clearly been sitting out for quite a while before it was brought to me. The server while very nice was also very scattered. I don't know the first thing about how restaurants assign servers to tables but it appeared the servers main section was in the middle of the dining room but she was also assigned to my table and another next to me which was at the back of the restaurant so our tables were a bit neglected. The entree took close to 50 minutes to arrive at my table. The food overall was good but the wait time was a bit long. Perhaps the kitchen was short staffed, I don't know, but this is the second visit in a row where the service time has been slow.

Overall this is a nice place with good food. I would suggest the management get to the bottom of the service issue though before you start to lose customers.

What I had was very simple as I was not very hungry, just cheddar-broccoli soup and a caprese salad but with that and that extra yummy bread it was plenty and so good. My hubby had a steak, don't remember which, but he was very satisfied and ate it all! Service and ambiance was great and we will eat there again sometime.

Filet was over cooked but we ate it, we sent mushrooms back because they were hard and came halfway through the meal.
Crab cakes were the best! Paying $48 for a 12oz filet that was split and way over cooked is not worth the price.

Overall great place. This visit waitress was very slow like she was very disorganized and we were her only table for 20 minutes. People in other areas of restaurant arrived after us and got food way before us. Steak was cooked over medium but I ate anyway as waitress never returned. Flavor was great even if overcooked and a bit dry.
