Food is over salted. Steaks always come out cooked incorrectly.

“ Classic creme brûlée” is not prepared
In a classic manner.
This is a poor imitation of a good steakhouse.
Very noisy; the piano player in the adjacent bar area was playing straight up jazz which was annoying during dinner.

Go to Morton’s in Saratoga.

I rate a restaurant first by the lighting level and the music level followed by the comfort of the chairs. All three get high praise at Duke's. Service was superb, the food [salmon, parmesan risotto] was perfectly cooked. I must compliment the consistency.....each visit has been equally fine.

Stuffed sea bass distinguished, filet mignon Oscar - filet melt in you mouth, crab too shredded, hard to find, roasted garlic overcooked, dry, entirely forgettable. Service first rate.

To be honest the food was not very good. The scallops were so oversalted they were unedible. The filet was pretty good but came out cold. It took a while to get the bread and the drinks and the appetizers. The servers were wonderful

Service was helpful and unobtrusive. The temperature of the red meats was spot-on, and the side dishes were prepared as requested. A nice experience!

Exceptional! From the wine selection to the dinner entrees, Duke's was plain exceptional! The prime rib was outstanding, as was the salmon and sea bass! Service was terrific as well! Highly recommend!

Fantastic! Very surprised by the piano player/ singer. Prices good. We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress brought out a 10 layer chocolate cake!!!! Awesomeness. I had Filet Mignon and nasged potatoes. One suggestion raise the price just a pinch and serve a small portion of potatoes with the meal, other than that just wonderful!

Took my family to the casino and then Dukes for dinner. Fantastic experience. Service was excellent, food was fantastic and the setting was nice. No complaints and recommended for top notch steaks, wine and dessert

Our server ‘Rana’ was wonderful - pleasant, friendly and professional. Unfortunately, they were short staffed and our food was cold when we were served (by the manager ‘Ryan’) who was great. As we advised him of our meal being cold - he adjusted our bill accordingly and even gave us a dessert. We understand many restaurants are having staffing issues and we were treated very well and will return with no hesitation. Great service from the staff who waited on us. Thank you.

Excellent restaurant conveniently located off casino floor. Upscale ambience. The menu is a la carte but varied. My prime rib was delicious and cooked to perfection. My only dislike was quite a few items with horseradish to which I'm allergic. Pricing was consistent with the type of food and environment. Our server was very polite and helpful. I would recommend Duke's for anyone visiting the Casino or for a special occasion!

John was our server and was great. Very attentive, but not overly so. Prime Rib was 10/10. Most everything was; asparagus, cream corn, sole, wine, etc. Crab cakes fell short though.

I highly suggest this spot!

My birthday dinner. It was our first time there and we were very disappointed in the food. My wife had the scallops and they tasted and smelled very fishy and old. I had the chicken with Gruyere cheese. And it was edible .
The best part of the dinner was the bread and the waiter Bill, he was fantastic . Way overpriced and blah food.

We had a six friends gathering for a delicious dinner. Three of us had the fillets which were cooked perfectly and the other three had the stuffed fish or salmon and everything was delicious. Our waiter Terry was excellent. He was very attentive and very courteous.

It was obvious the server was having a bad shift. She roiled her eyes when I was ordering, she was slightly condescending & short. I tried being overly nice, which seemed to annoy her more.
After all this she put our order in wrong, totally forgot my husband’s steak order & also totally forgot the string bean side order. Although his steak was good, I was finished /my meal by the time it arrived.
The good news is they didn’t charge us for the steak. We were surprised & grateful.
I understand if someone is having a bad day, but you can’t be in a customer service oriented business, if you can’t hide your negatively.

It must be a season where they do not have experience staff
No knowledge of what tequila they had carpaccio was pretty good but I asked no cables came with capers my wife’s caulk chop came out here to see it on one side not even cooked on the other and the Apple chutney sauce that they had on it might as well been Motts applesauce

This was a first time visit for a birthday dinner. Our server, Terry, was fantastic couldn’t have asked for better. The food was delicious from the bread, apps, dinner, straight through to the cheesecake that they bought for me for my birthday. We will definitely be back when in the area again.

Good food but be prepared to spend a lot per meal as everything is a la carte.
It was noisy. Be sure to request a quiet seating arrangement unless you're okay with the noise.
Wait staff was good. Nothing over the top which one might expect in a higher end steakhouse.

Having eaten there many times for lunch wanted to go there for dinner. It was our wedding anniversary and we had made a reservation weeks before knowing it is track season . Our waitress took our drink order and then disappeared for 15 minutes only to come back with bread and butter , we then received our drinks and ordered . Our appetizers came out about 15 minutes later and my husbands lobster appetizer was Luke warm but we just let it go as we did not want to ruin the experience 1 hour later we finally asked where our entrees were as people seated after us were eating, she apologized and said she would send the manage over as she had been trying to get our order , the manager came over with an attitude and told us that they had lost the dupe but it had only been 57 minutes, I asked how this was my problem and asked what he was going to do about ie and his exact words were he was going to give us carrot cake . Finally he came out with our entrees and sides which were ice cold , l then asked to see his boss but eventually he came back over and I told him to take the dinners off our check and give us a bill for our drinks and appetizers. He left and then cam back and told us there was no bill. I understand that mistakes happen but own up to it and apologize don’t give customers an attitude when you are clearly in the wrong

Everything was great except antipasto chopped salad was almost entirely lettuce. One tiny piece of cheese, one tiny piece of salami and half of a cherry tomato and two rings of yellow pepper, the rest was lettuce for 16 dollars. Won't be getting that again. Filet, potatoes and spinach were excellent. You need to work on salad.

The calamari was overcooked to the point of hard/chewy, but we ate it all still. My steak was cooked medium well instead of medium but still had good flavor
