    Had brunch with my mom & best friend. Everything was fabulous. Only reason I gave 4 ⭐️ for food is the crab legs were a little over cooked. I’ll definitely be back!

    We decided to sit outside which was a bad choice because we were pretty much ignored out there. When our waiter came out after we were there for about 15 minutes and simply asked if we were ready to order, we told him we would like a cocktail first and an appetizer which we ordered the meatball with ricotta but alas there was no ricotta. It was quite bland and the sauce was just okay. We both finished our cocktails and water but no one would check on us. Finally our waiter came out and we ordered another cocktail but no one cleared any of our dishes or empty cocktail glasses. We the din receive our entrees and they were fair, not once did our waiter ask how our meals were. Quite disappointed and it was our anniversary to boot, which the waiter was aware of.

    The ambience was both casual and romantic. It was our 45th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been more pleased with our dining choice. We felt warmly welcomed from the Hostess to the server who brought rolls and water on to our dining Server. Professional yet friendly. We loved every minute and will definitely be back. My husband had the chicken marsala and I had the shrimp scampi and they were both delicious. Mine was accompanied by a peach bellini! So refreshing! In honor of our anniversary, our server brought us the cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Don't miss out on this experience!

    I fully understand a change to the pre-pandemic glorious buffet at Chukchansi and cost-savings since but what is in place is terrible, overpriced and not worth the offerings. There is an attempt to overcharge to justify doing it ($59 per person and $5 mimosas!) but it's not really a buffet. The buffet is in this tight space and we had reservations for two then had to sit at those uncomfortable highchair tables near the bar and everyone else is seated at a table if more than two--again the space is not suitable for a large buffet crowd and it's obvious that it is discouraged. The food selection is underwhelming and there not too friendly servers at every item asking how many do you want--how many shrimp, crab legs, bacon, sausage?! I was furious by the time I got to the omelette station. The only selection where you were not monitored were the desserts and there was too much of that and a tiny selection of fruit. The only upshot were the wait staff--very friendly and attentive. They really went out of their way to make the meal enjoyable. I think they know that we are being ripped off a bit and that's a shame. Get rid of this buffet or go back to what you had before.

    It was a amazing dinner. One of the best if not the best Italian food I have had. We had the meatball for a appetizer it was amazing and the chicken pesto and chicken Alfredo both the best and large portions. Service was the best. We can't wait to go back.

    I’m sorry to say that I was quite disappointed, the other 2 in my party thought it was ok. When we were seated, the host didn’t give us any info.. ie.. server will be right with you, you may go ahead and start etc. waiter was great once he finally made it to our table. Salt n pepper shakers were dirty with Italian sauce, I suppose…. Looked nasty. Flowers on table weren’t watered. Might seem minor but at $60. a person, I would expect a little cleaner ( maybe I’ve been in the restaurant/food industry too long. Some of the bacon was 2 inches long and burnt to a crisp (black). It was in a chaffing dish so it had been cooked elsewhere and those pieces should have been removed from serving. I wish I had taken a picture. Didn’t seem to be enough to wait staff on serving stations so some items we had to skip. Normally I would not complain or write a review but it’s a pricey buffet and I had hoped for better. Thank goodness it was my birthday month so I had a food voucher. The dessert options were the best of the meal, my guests agreed also. I hope this review helps to better the buffet for success. Thank you 😊

    My second visit I started with Calamari Misto. This was rings and tentacles deep fried with a few artichoke hearts and pepperoncinis mixed in, served with tartar and marinara for dipping. An interesting combo, the batter was fairly light in texture but was quite salty. I then had the Seafood Ravioli. A great presentation on a rectangular plate, half-moon shaped raviolis lined up in a row. Although a delicious dish, unfortunately there was not much seafood, and its flavor was greatly overpowered by the sauce and cheese. I enjoyed both dishes, but they didn't quite meet my expectations; I'm not likely to order either again. The service from William once again was impeccable.

    Hosts were nice. Our server was terrible. Couldn't get service or attention. After 1 hour of waiting for food and speaking up our food order was lost. Couldn't even get bread at our table. The only saving grace was the Manager Gabby. She made js feel like someone cared about our experience there. Took the food home to eat and it wasn't impressive at all. Especially for the price. Bland. Yall never heard of garlic? And the fact an Italian Restaurant doesn't have Italian salad dressing is beyond me. Server said they only had ceaser everything else was not allowed.

    Dinner on a Friday night. We chose inside seating due to the hot weather, but they do have an outdoor patio which would be great on cooler nights. Chicken Marsala was good, Jumbo Prawns with fettucine--excellent! Wait staff very attentive. Our only issue was a pesky fly that kept buzzing our table. Will definitely eat there again.

    We enjoyed our brunch it was delicious! Thanks to the chef named Sam. The crab legs, smoked salmon, oysters, prime rib, flank steak, mashed potatoes and more were all tasty. Our waitress,Melonie, was attentive and with her spirited personality made us feel comfortable. It’s a little pricey but worth it. Would recommend to our friends and family.

    It was very empty which I always take as a bad sign, but the service was good and the food was good as well. Portions are huge so share if you can. They were out of the cannolis which was disappointing. We probably won’t come back, it wasn’t anything special, but if you want some decent Italian in this area check it out.

    Food is fantastic, staff is friendly and always checking to make sure you don’t need anything. My wife and I went for our anniversary and we returned just a few weeks later for Date Night, and we will be returning again! Bartender makes great cocktails, the Lasagna, Chicken Parm and Seafood ravioli are all great values and more than enough flavor and food. We will be back again and again!

    I treated myself to dinner at the bar. Beautiful view of the foothills, I wish I came at sunset time, but I was too early. William the bartender was very attentive without being intrusive, and his timing for anticipating my wants was perfect; excellent service. Started with an Aperol spritz, very light and refreshing. I was impressed with the Caesar salad, a strong dressing, as it should be, liberally covering the romaine, plenty of cheese but not too much, and a beautiful presentation as well. For the main course, I had a glass of pinot noir and the pappardelle bolognese. This was cooked to perfection, the noodles were just right, there was a lot of meat in the sauce, and it was a big portion. This really was a treat! A fantastic dining experience! If you are seeking a quiet, pleasant, delicious meal, try Nativos!

    Dining at Nativos - Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino was a good experience. The servers did a great job! My friend and I sampled calamari, minestrone soup, chicken marsala, and a chocolate trifle. The food was amazing with the exception of the chicken marsala. The marsala sauce overpowered the chicken as it was very greasy and there was too much sauce on the plate. The abundance of marsala sauce interfered with the taste of the marinara sauce on the capellini too.

    If you enjoy a refreshing summer cocktail, try the Aperol Spritz or Strawberry Basil Smash. The Nativo's signature meatball appetizer, with ricotta on the side, is delicious, as well as the shrimp cocktail and Patatine AI Fungi. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. The service is top-notch.

    First time at Nativos and it will not be our last. Michelle was our server and she was great, friendly, knowledgeable of the food and wine choices and deftly an asset to the restaurant staff. The Caesar Salad was one of the best we've had. lovely presentation and fresh ingredients and a lovely dressing. Good selection of pasta dishes. One thing that could be changed is perhaps to use larger dishes on some of the dishes like the penne pasta with the vodka sauce. It was delicious, however, the dish it was served on was a bit too small so the food was overflowing on the table. This could be improved bu using a larger dish. Great ambience, good service, good food. We will be back. Definitely recommended.
