No FUSS getting reservation, arriving to expecting reception straight to table! Greeted with super friendly and thoughtful service crew andDeepti Maître De. Prompt serving of table warm breads, and drink.
Unfortunately, menu special of Bison Ribeye not delivered that day so had to “ settle” for lamb chops order with pre course of Wedge Salad, served ice cold but with topping of fresh fried onion strings/ scrumptious and tangy blue cheese dressing and bacon crumbles. Multiple large lamb chops cooked to perfection and encrusted well.
Michael P brought his excellent service along with caring conversation to introduce consequential courses! Creme Brûlée dessert served in coconut half shell on supporting ring of fresh pineapple including crisp caramelized flambé costing. No rush, no disappoints, and returning very soon!

Was there a year ago for the first time and had best ribeye steak of my life. Expensive but it was a $60.00 steak that tasted like a $60.00 steak. Finally took my wife for a special date and my medium rare steak was barely seared and blood red. Tried a couple bites and it was like like a cheap London broil at best. Super tough and no marbling of fat at all. Sent it back to get cooked a little more and it was now cooked to rare and even tougher. Ate about a 1/4 of it...left the rest. Wife had salad and crab cakes. Crab cakes smelled and tasted like canned tuna fish. She didn’t eat them either. Salads we both had were very good. They didn’t charge me for steak but we still spent $70.00 for 2 salads, a soda and a baked potato. I won’t be back.

We raved about the steaks to family and the 14oz steak was not. It appeared as a small steak and not a steak we previously had. Although it had been 6 years since we enjoyed the steak from the past, the steak was sent back, agreed by the server that it was not 14oz so she arranged to have another prepared. That too was not good.
The price of the steaks are too expensive and not worth it any longer. If you want a great steak, Ruth Chris! Ambiance is nice.

It's a very romantic type of atmosphere to dine in. The food is absolutely divine and delicious. I have dined there for many occasions such as Birthday and Anniversary. Both occasions the chef made a most beautiful display of dessert presented to us.
Their customer service is superb.
High Steaks is my first choice in high class dining.

This was a Valentine’s date with my wife, I made these reservations about 3 weeks prior to valentines. We have always had a good time there. However, we were seated in the bar area near the window that looks out into the casino. With it being valentines and a Friday night and seated in the bar, my wife and I couldn’t even hear each other, while we ate. This isn’t high steaks fault, but being seated by the window looking out into the casino. People stop to look at your food, while you were eating. Just a bit of a turn off.

My sweetheart and I had a delicious meal at High Steaks February 9th which was our second time eating at this excellent restaurant. We each had the Filet Mignon, High Steaks chopped salad and the Green Beans Almondine. And the bread basket with a fresh baked variety of breads was an added amenity that we appreciated.

Our Server was outstanding, paying attention to every detail of our meal. The chef cooked everything to perfection.

Thanks, High Steaks and staff, for a memorable dining experience. We will return.

The margarita, bloody Mary, and Malibu pineapple drinks we had at the bar was just ok. It was really loud and we almost had to yell at our other guests at the table. One of the steaks was cold and had to be sent back. The green beans had no flavor. The mashed potatoes were delicious but were lukewarm. Maybe it was an off day...I don't know. I would be willing to try them again but the smoke from the casino was too much.

Due to a birthday we had requested seats at a booth, and we were happy that we were actually seatedt there!
Workers continued to tell my boyfriend happy birthday throughout our dinner, and we even got a free beautiful dessert!
Starter (lobster chowder) and bread were good. Our prime rib was unfortunately pretty tough, we haven't witnessed that before. The sides however, were delicious!
Waiter who filled our glasses of water was very attentive, we never had a moment with less than half a glass of water!

Overall pleased with the food, little upset about the prime rib though. But very happy with the service!

We had a wonderful dinner at High Steaks. I had prime rib and my date had filet mignon. The food was excellent. The absolute best part of the evening was our waiter, Anthony F. Absolutely the best service I have ever had. Anthony was attentive, but not over-bearing. He was funny, and responsive, and fun. He made our evening so much more enjoyable. He even brought us some amazing gluten free bread, and gluten free dessert items. I usually hate dining in the casino setting, but this restaurant is closed off from the casino (and the attendant smoke and noise), and had a wonderful ambience and was quiet. Overall a wonderful dining experience and we will be back

Pros
Food is excellent - Compliments to the Chefs
Service on both my visits was very good. "Mike" was helpful, not overly solicitous, and very knowledgeable about food and wine.
Dessert...fantastic!

Cons
Large party in main dining room doing tequila shots was a tad out of control...should put parties like that in it's own area....thankfully they were on the Managers' radar!

Appetizer (meatballs) was great, onion soup fantastic, wedge salad was very good. Lamb was ok at best, 11 oz filet mignon was horrible, no flavor, took it home and fed it to our dogs. They only charge us 20.00 for it, but seriously should have been taken off the bill. There was a group of 4 seated 2 tables away that we had to listen to an old man(70) talking about his feet and pedicures and all the crap that came off his feet. That conversation went on for about a half hour very loudly. We will never go back

This is the 4th time I have dined here. All of the 3 previous times the food, service and ambiance was excellent! This time it was a different story. The steaks were super thin 1/2" (Bone in Ribeye), and well done when asked for medium rare. The brussel sprouts were bitter as well, salad was uninspiring and lacked dressing too. The breads though were very good as always. I have had all of these items before and they were excellent, but not anymore! Two things that were fantastic though, the baked potato, and the service! Our waitress was superb! I just wished the food was as good as our waitress!

They did comp us the desert and the salad, but this was a special birthday celebration and having a mean like this ruined the celebratory part.

Service was outstanding and exceeded all expectations, dinner was good with the exception of the unusually thick onion soup, bland green beans and Mac and cheese. Our server gave us a bountiful plate of complimentary chocolate covered caramel which was a delightful end to our night.

We were sat right by the entrance from the casino as well as into bar area, not a great location at all and our reservations were made weeks ago . We are returnees to this establishment and felt we should have gotten a better table location .
