LBV Steak and Pasta at Preque Isle Downs Ratings and Reviews
Overall good experience. Expected to be a little pricey. Felt worth it. Service was fast. It was a little loud since we were sitting near the entrance. I looked at the menu online before reserving a table so understood the salads would be extra. I ordered the house salad and wife got the Ceasar. Presentation was well done. Bread was good. Came to the table warm with lots of butter. Request it plain if you don't already want it applied. My ribeye was cooked properly, however came with too much melted butter on it. It was very flavorful, but the extra butter overwhelmed the steak. I would ask for about half next time. This is only a minor complaint. As my side I ordered the loaded mashed potatoes. Very large serving, enough to split between two. Wife ordered a shrimp cocktail as appetizer. This was not a good deal in my opinion. Only came with 4 shrimp. Probably better choices on the menu. We each ordered one glass of house wine at $5 each. Most places we go that is $6 a glass. With a generous tip for the service we still came away with <$100 bill. Not bad for a special occasion.
I was there with my 3 aunts, we had the lobster tail (2), steak, and salmon. There was a problem with the lobster and loaded potatoes, baked potato being cold. The problem was resolved immediately. Also the crab meat entrée was small, not what we expected. Other than that all 4 of us enjoyed our dinner.
The busboy drenched the table in water and did not replace the tablecloth and the evening went downhill from there. Baked potato had to be sent back as it was ice cold and my brussels sprouts were hard in the center. The steaks were good, but the service was choppy, yet cheerful. A light was out in the fixture near my table and so it was comically dark. The restaurant was quite busy and I do not think they were prepared for it. One table visit from the Floor Manager would have set the whole night back on course, but he was nowhere to be seen. The service needs tuning and there's no excuse for the cold potato and under-cooked vegetables. I didn't have a bad evening, but it wasn't what I'd expect when spending almost $100.
Restaurant contained friendly and courteous staff. Very dark atmosphere. Server was excellent, however did not keep up on drinks aside from water, which I do not believe to be his fault, as he had to get them from bar. Only bottled beers served, no on tap or local beers. Mixed drink ordered (captain and coke) excellent. Appetizer, main course, and dessert were served in a timely fashion. Bread was honestly my favorite part of meal (it was that good!)Appetizer was pretty tasty, ordered fried raviolis. House salads good. The 59$ ribeye steak and 12 oz NY steak were excellent, side dishes were mediocre (brussel sprouts and asparagus, however I do not think the asparagus was properly prepped before cooking-ends were extremely chewy, impossible to eat). Chocolate covered cannoli was very good. Overall, not a bad place to eat if you are in Erie at the Casino. The friendly staff, especially the waiter, really made the restaurant a great experience.
The atmosphere is wonderful as the staff works together as 1 to provide you and your date the most relaxing ,the most intimate dining experience you would have at any Big City Steak House in the USA, I have had only a new steak houses in the USA that grill to perfection so every bite of food just melt in our mouth and everything thing you order from the appititetizer to the salad to the main course to dessert and still can't finish every bite until you get home and out know you are full and can't eat another bite, You are still craving the every last bite of food,
Yes it's that addictive.
The staff makes sure your dining experience is the best you have ever had, There is not one second of inexperience in this place to enjoy the full Ambiance and decor of one of Erie, Pennsylvania's finest Steakhouses.
Truley a Great Dining experience.
WE LOVE THE STEAKHOUSE AND THE FOOD IS GREAT BUT I CAN NOT SAY THE SAME FOR THE COCKTAILS. IN THE PAST I HAVE ORDERED A VODKA MARTINI,DON'T KNOW HOW YOU CAN MISS THAT ONE,BUT IT WAS SO BAD I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS AND I SENT IT BACK. SAD TO SAY, IT WAS MADE THE SAME WAY AGAIN.
LAST SAT NIGHT I ORDERED A ROB ROY WHICH WAS ON THE DRINK MENU. I DRINK THEM ALL THE TIME. THIS WAS WAY OFF. DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN HAVE SUCH WONDERFUL FOOD AND SUCH A BAD BAR. THE BAR UPSTAIRS IS GREAT. ALL OF THE EMPLOYEES MAKE WONDERFUL COCKTAILS. PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT THANK YOU.
I wish that the service was even half as good as the food. LBV has amazing steak, seafood and pasta. The bread and dipping oil was great too. Unfortunately, our waitress decided to disappear from the moment our entrees were served until we were tapping our toes and getting impatient. Dinner ended at 6:40 (that's when we all were finished eating) but the waitress didn't stop over until 7:00. That's when we asked for a box for our unfinished food, and our checks. It took another ten minutes to bring the checks, and she forgot the box. Then it took another 10 minutes to get my credit card back, and again she forgot the box. We were done eating at 6:40 and yet didn't get to leave the restaurant until 7:25. It felt like we were being held hostage. Worst service I've ever got in Erie and it was bad enough that we won't be back although the food was great.
We have been there before and as usual the food was excellent ! However the service was awful...I blame it on the waitress that we happened to have....same one as last time and her service was even worse. Not a smile or greeting...waited soooooo long for everything including bill.. we had to keep asking other people to find her...my husband has medical problems and the start to finish was over 2 hours....way too long for him...it ruined the evening as we were there to celebrate his birthday and the birthday of our friend.
We always come to this restaurant for steak. However it did not seem to be very for when we dined there last week. We felt service was a C and the steaks were a B- this time. We've been here several times and it has been better in both service and food. We will come back again to see if it improves. It's always fun to come here after a night of watching the horses.
We had the surf and turf and it was amazing! Great service. The only drawback is that you have to walk through the smoking section of the casino to get to the restaurant, and they have no restrooms in the restaurant. You have to walk through the smoke again to go to the restroom.
Enjoyed the food steak was perfect at one time you had a diffetent kind of surf and turf I expected that this time and it was the traditional I do think you should alert people to changes both times I was surprised by my plate both were good no complaints and Phil is a top server not sure why your resting system days fair 5 stars. Is usually good so Phil was good
I loved the romantic setting! Everyone there were very friendly and seemed as they actually enjoy the job. The FOOD WAS AWESOME! My taste buds were dancing from the flavor of the food! The whole experience was awesome. Definitely going back when I go back to Erie.
