Love this steak house. Though it's a bit pricey, the food is excellent and presented with class! Service is top notch. Highly recommend the rack of lamb and lobster bisque soup.

salad good, dessert good, steak not go good -- overdone, juiceless, management very nice and made up for a not so good meal.

What a great surprise. 1986 is a far better experience than Arrowhead Grill, Shula's and Flemings and at a better cost.

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 place is always the best. The waiter’s and waitresses are always so pleasant and kind and willing to help. The chief even comes out to talk with you to see how the food was when he is not to busy. That I think is wonderful

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

Phoenix area has no shortage of great steak places and fine dining. Add this to the list of good places to eat. It is inside a casino so that may deter some, but if you are looking to combine your entertainment, this place is great.
They do need to add some "fine dining servers" to the staff, as a few of them seem more aligned with a food court staffing level. If you have a $100+ steak on the menu, your staff needs to know the food and serve it well.
Also, if you know any players at this location you can likely get a great value due to discounts and comps.
