    I was suprised to have dinner at a casino that was as exceptional as it was. I thought fine dinning in a casino would be good but not great. The food was outstanding and our server Sam was excellent. We had The fillet mignon and it was done, perfect, and the garlic mashed potatoes were wonderful. The server was very attentive. We will definitely go back again.

    The overall appeal of the restaurant was amazing. I truly felt like I was in a high class restaurant. However, after receiving my filet mignon, it was overcooked and appeared grey in color. The steak was sent back and another was returned. The second steak was also grey in color and was almost raw. I have never sent a steak back to the kitchen after Receiving it but this was unacceptable. When speaking with the staff, they could only offer macaroons for their apologies. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good steakhouse. A $300 bill for less than acceptable steak is not okay.

    Steak was expensive and overcooked. Sam the server did not know the difference between Gluten and Lactose restrictions. I was served food containing dairy products. Manager asked for my name to make up for it on next visit, there will be no next visit.

    My husband and I enjoy starting our date nights here. The food is good and reasonably priced, great atmosphere with a view since it is on the 11th floor of the new hotel. We park in the hotel parking, go to dinner, and finish the night at the casino. Always a good time!

    The cocktails were excellent (the old fashioned was made very well), our server was very attentive and personable and the ambience was nice with the view from the 11th floor and far enough away from the casino that there was no smoke smell like there is in the casino floor restaurants. The food was disappointing for the price paid. Just proteins on a plate with a garnish. I had a medium rare rib eye that was seasoned well but the cut was poor and it took a lot of chewing effort to get through it. Most pieces I had to swallow whole because I was getting tired of chewing without getting anywhere. My wife ordered the cedar plank king salmon and it was overcooked and dry. The brussels sprouts side was the best part of the meal and I would order them again. The restaurant is the best dining option for a pre-show meal at the casino if you want something away from the smoke and noise of the casino but next time I’m there for a show at the event center we will likely eat somewhere else first.

    This was our 2nd visit. Our 1st was visit was great . Our 2nd visit wasn't good at all due to the hostess had a bad attitude. If it wasn't for the the guy( heavy set guy thought could have been a manager based on his interactions with the tables .) And our wait person was wonderful, we would have given 1 star. Not sure if we'll return.

    Everything was amazing. Loved the lobster bites in butter and the scallop appetizer were melt in your mouth tender. Soup of the day (beef and barley) was so flavorful. We were so full we decided to split an entree and enjoyed our shrimp scampi. We will definitely return

    The service, with Sam, was outstanding. There when we needed him and not when we didn’t. He gave wonderful advice on our food selections and they were perfect for us. The food and his wine recommendation were great! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and it could not have been better. We will be back.

    Went there for our anniversary. The staff was very attentive definitely top level.  the view was beautiful, the food was wonderful and they gave us a free dessert for our anniversary that is not to be missed - a dry ice show coming out of the middle of the platter. The live music in the bar around the corner from the restaurant was very relaxing. They made our special night wonderful and exciting. Our new favorite steakhouse in Pierce County.

    Our server, Tristan, was really graceful with service. He went above and beyond (even though it was a late celebration) to make my mother feel special as we went in for her birthday dinner, as the night was to be about her. The food was excellent, though I must say it was my first time spending more than $200 on food alone. I used to work there, so the people working there were friendly and I greeted them throughout the night as such. It was fun like it was when I was still with the casino.

    When we arrived for our reservation they said we did not have one. I showed them my reservation on Open Table. they were very confused. They were completely booked and flustered but found a table that was nothing like I requested for our wedding anniversary- middle table in the hallway between the 2 areas. We stayed because we didn't have any real choices. The waiter was really nice.

    This was the first time visiting this restaurant and it was amazing service and food. The only drawback to the experience, and this was based solely on where we were seated, was the lighting on the wine wall and entrance wall put a reflection on the windows which made it difficult to enjoy the views of the bay. This would be on the north side of the restaurant, definitely choose the south side for a better view with less light noise from the background. Food was amazing, service was amazing, I had the bone-in ribeye and my girlfriend had the Chilean Sea Bass. The baked Brie appetizer was awesome, wonderful endless bread, perfectly grilled asparagus and the mushroom side was also amazing. Definitely going back but for special occasions. Finding parking in a Saturday night was challenging, but eventually we found a spot.
