I ordered the Christmas dinner special. Included a salad, but after returning home and checking the bill, I notice I was charged $12.00 for Xmas Iceberg Sal. I asked on how the prime rib was cooked. Rare, med. rare, med., med. well, or well done. I mentioned that restaurants define these choices different. Our server said if I liked mine med. rear, to order medium. I did. What I received was what looked like close to an end cut that was close to med. well to well done. I did not mention this to the server at that time, as it took some time to get out diners, and also didn't want to embarrass my date. Our server and other staff were top of the line, just had a less that desirable meal for the money. I will give a yes to the recommendation below, assuming that this was just an isolated incident.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we opted to have Christmas dinner here. The dining room was beautiful, the staff was very attentive and the meal delivery timed perfectly. The food was very good. Special kudos to our waiter, Bradley. He was personable without being overly chatty, made great food and wine recommendations and made us feel especially welcome.

You never felt like you were in a casino. (We don't gamble.) We will definitely make this one of our special occasion restaurants and place to bring friends and family.

We ordered the Christmas Special that was 5 course. Main course was prime rib and it was the best that I have had in many years, if ever. Service was great, dining room was very nice. We are definitely going back and bringing friends.

A total dining experience! The food was fabulous and our waiter superb. Expensive, but well worth the money. I've eaten at places that are pricey but the food just so-so. Not true here. Everything was perfectly balanced and delicious. My mouth is watering now just thinking about it!

Very good food for the most part. The macaroni & cheese was not for us! They did however not charge us for it so no complaints. Our service was awesome, had table side Caesar which was very good learned it was first made in Tijuana, which they didn’t even tell us when we had it made in Tijuana. The flavors on everything were good, however the Brussels sprouts were a little dry. The only disappointing thing was my ribeye was overcooked, that is a tough one for a steakhouse, order medium came out well done! That is why I had to give 4 stars, steakhouse should never have a problem getting temp right. Once the second steak came out was much better. We tried just about everything, and we were very happy overall. We will go back.

The food was ridiculously delicious and the service was amazing! There was a little bit of a wait once we got to our table, the waiter immediately recognized that and offered us a free dessert as a thank you for waiting. I was very impressed by that!

The Thanksgiving dinner was one of the best I have ever had.
There was more than enough high quality food for the $55.00 per meal charge.
The service from the hostess, the wait staff, the bus staff, and the chef was very above par.
Overall my wife and in-laws had a memorable dining experiencce.
We will be back.

It was our first time there. It was my wife’s birthday. Everything was perfect from time we walked to the time we left. The wife had the pork chop and I had the dry aged rib eye steak. Both were prepared excellently. Definitely one of the best places in the west valley. Will be back.

We visited on a Sunday to try the prime rib special, unfortunately that was very disappointing. Very thin slice of beef, lacked flavor and poor plate presentation. But, the lobster bisque was AMAZING! And our dessert (Pumpkin Pie) was not only beautiful to the eye but extremely delicious.
Pass on the Chicken Piccata. A very small tablespoon of a thick lemon caper sauce placed on top of the chicken which was on a bed of dry, lukewarm pasta.

The service was top notch and will revisit sticking to the steaks which they specialize in.

Perfect spot for a special occasion. Food was excellent, service perfect and atmosphere very classy! On the pricey side, but expected.

Ordered a filet medium rare and it was medium when served. The offer was made to redo it to my liking, but actually it was tasty just as is. This demonstrates customer satisfaction is important to this restaurant.

Thank you for a very nice evening, look forward to dining here again soon!

Best dinner I've had in a very long time, if not ever. From the little appetizer, to the flawless steak, everything was perfect. Damonte (not sure if that's spelled right) was excellent with service.

Go here, give them money, get amazing food

This was one of the best dinner experiences I've had from start to finish. From the complimentary appetizer, the side table caesar salad, to the anniversary cake at the end, the food & service were phenomenal. Even though this is located inside the casino, you don't notice it while you're in the restaurant. We will be returning to this restaurant, even if it's not a special occasion. Thank you for making our anniversary so special.

Great service. Great menu choices. We loved the oysters and the presentation that comes with them. We did the table side caesar and it was good. Quite a bit of dressing so I would ask for light dressing next time. The waiter waits for you to cut the steaks before leaving the table to ensure they are cooked to proper temp. sides may not be needed as each entree came with some potatoes and carrots. Didn't have room for deserts on this trip as we were stuffed with the portions that were delivered
