The steak. Multiple steaks were tough in the middle. One steak being medium and the other medium well. Disappointing as this is not the norm.

Service was fantastic. Food was delicious. Price was a little high. Even had some special treats from the chef that made the evening more interesting. Overall it was a great evening.

My aunt took me here for my birthday and the best lobster tail in town. I didn't tell her but it wasn't my favorite. All the other food we ordered, the steak, scallops, salad, Scallop potatoes and Mac and cheese, were fantastic and our server was wonderful. I would never order the Lobster again, nor would I recommend it. The last time I had Lobster was at Scoma's in Sausalito, CA. This was not even close. I did let my aunt think it was the best birthday dinner I had ever had. I would come back but not for the lobster.

Asked for booth seating if possible. Seated at a regular table with no one commenting on my table preference that I requested on OpenTable. I also listed this was a special occasion and no one mentioned that either. Obviously, they didn't even read anything on the reservation.

Amazing food. As fine or finer than any fine dining restaurant in all of Sacramento. Hard to believe it is inside a casino. Nice that one can enter the restaurant from the outside and not have to enter the smokey casino. Restaurant is not smokey. The service is excellent and the food the best !!!!

We are regular customers and I’ve never had a negative experience before. This doesn’t really classify as negative but it wasn’t the delightful experience that we usually have. We had reservations but had to wait for a bit. Then we were seated in a table directly by the entrance. Cramped and noisy. Our waiter was very nice but others that served us were grumpy. Our tablecloth had stains and my wineglass was very dirty. I guess I’ve come to enjoy their high standards so much that I was disappointed when they weren’t achieved on this visit.

Our first dining experience here won't be our last. From the first moment that we sat down until we left, our experience couldn't have been better. The food was exceptional (rib eye steak and pork chop entrees). The lobster soup was delicious and chopped salad also. The fresh baked breads offered were varied and tasty. The coffee was robust and fresh. Our waiter Stefano was the best, very gracious, knowledgeable and accommodating (as were all the restaurant serving staff). It was overall a very enjoyable evening - just what we were hoping for, even though it was an early Monday evening reservation.
The only negative was the receptionist. When we approached her, we gave her our name and reservation time, she asked us if we would agree to be seated at the bar. We told her no, that we didn't drink alcohol and were looking forward to a quiet dining experience. She said "well I just asked because we have tables to fill for our quota at the bar". That put a damper on our enthusiasm and was offputting to say the least. We didn't make a reservation to eat in a high end steak house, to be banished to the bar!I
As a POI, I used to work at Thunder Valley as the PBX Manager (of what is now the Call Center), who followed Vivian Howard, before the hotel was completed, and had eaten at Austin Steakhouse. I didn't think Austin's could be beat, but I was wrong. We will make another trip to dine at High Steaks again.

Food was just OK. The Onion Soup was good. The fried chicken was a bit too well done. Salmon was good. The food was a little cold. Service was OK. The place needs to refocus on the customer. The pricing is premium, but the service and food are a bit lacking.

Our anniversary, asked for a quiet booth away from the bar. Apparently part of the restaurant seating area was closed. We ended up being seated in a booth very close to the bar. And it was during happy hour so the noise level was high. Service was acceptable but not consistent with the service we received previously in the closed section.

It is great for special occasions.
We both went for the steaks Which we had before but at the last minute I switch to the prime rib. Should’ve stuck to my original plan my wife steak was great but my prime rib was so so.
As usual the service was fantastic

We tried High Steaks for my husband’s birthday. The meal was decent but for the same expensive pricing, Ruth’s Chris or Morton’s are FAR better in high level service, quality of food, and presentation. Another downside is that you have to walk through the huge, cigarette smoke filled casino to get to the restaurant. I would not go back.

It was my wife’s belated birthday and she loved the Salted Carmel, so asked for them to bring a little extra out with a scoop of ice cream. Great Job

Could be great for special occasion meal. The filet mignon was perfect. The bison was tougher than I hoped for, but that is the nature of bison, I assume. The garlic mash potatoes were spectacular.

Our food was luke warm at best and came to the table too quickly. Biting into a $48 tepid steak was not ideal. Despite the food temperature, taste was good and the service was excellent but we did feel a bit rushed. The restaurant is also very loud, we were hoping for a reprieve from the loud casino environment but the restaurant did not offer that .

Food and service were very good. Greatly overpriced for what you get though. Seating was not comfortable and there are just far too many people crammed into the restaurant to really enjoy a nice relaxing dinner. For the price they charge, you should receive a stellar dining experience.

Hi! My gf and I came in for a nice dinner before the concert. The french onion soup was to die for but the seafood platter was disgusting. The crab was old and the lobster was chewy. I dont plan on going back anytime soon.

Great food! The service was not top notch, but very good. The server was very busy due to the concert goers, who dined there before the concert. I don’t know why she was not aware that we were there to celebrate a birthday. The note was included in my reservation with Open Table. We decided not to mention the birthday. However, she was pleasant and did a good job overall.

High Steaks is a great place to dine for special occasions, or any other event, although it is pricey, it is worth the experience.

Unfortunately, due to a concert and the terrible traffic it caused, we arrived 15 minutes late, and we live only 3miles from the casino. Improvements need to be made to improve the traffic problems!

We have been going for several years on special occasions and it has always been great. They are going through a shift in chefs so this time was a little off. It’s temporary and as soon as they get a permanent chef we will be back.

21 Day Dry Aged Bone In Ribeye had excellent aged flavor, nutty/cheesy. Lobster Bisque was a favorite for a number in our party. Service was very good as well!
