    First, the hotel, casino and interior of the restaurant was great. Our waiter Gary was outstanding. Now the food, salad was good as was the bread. My wife ordered the pork chop, it was very tough and almost impossible to chew. I order the lamb chops, they were terrible, very tough and one chop I couldn't cut with a steak knife. Both of the sides with the meal were great. We told the waiter and he took both meals to the kitchen to show the chef. Waiter returned with a female who was the manager and she said both meal were comped. My wife was given a desert of her choice for free. Don't think it was the chef's fault, just poor quality meat. I order lamb very often and this was not good. We will try the restaurant again and ask for waiter Gary.

    Christine was our waitress and she was excellent. It was only her second day and I'm sure she will get even better as time goes on. The staff at the entrance desk to the Storyteller were unfriendly, never smiled and never welcomed us. We almost changed our minds about eating there. The food was superb and the main reason we came to the hotel.

    Originally, I'm from Las Vegas, I've had many occasions to dine at some of the finest restaurants in the country. Storytellers matches the quality and ambiance of a top tier venue available in Las Vegas. As a side note, the prices are significantly less than Las Vegas.

    They are so friendly and cater to their guests. Food is amazing. I think Eric is a excellent chef. I would also say that you are not rushed so you actually can enjoy all that is. They have a desert tray as well and talk about each selection. I would of taken a picture but so good went right into our selections.

    The food was amazing and the service was outstanding! We will definitely be going back again. Highly recommend the clam chowder, the best I ever had! Scallops and sea bass were cooked to perfection. We also had mussels and they were scrumptious. Our waiter was very nice and informative. Loved the ambiance too.

    Excellant venue for romantic dinner. No exterior views because your inside a casino but once inside its magical. Pork chop is large and good, but I would suggest a stronger spice, better choice of vegetables. Deserts are the frozen packaged boxed shipped froma manufacturer. Not done in house. Lamb was very good too. Chef needs to explore more.

    Not busy at all and service was so slow....about 45mins wait from ordering to service and my NY strip was only warm to the touch. Ridiculous they added automatic 15% gratuity for 5 people, especially when service was so poor.

    Food was absolutely phenomenal. We got the 10oz filet, with mashed potatoes, loaded baked potato, Caesar salad, and wrapped asparagus. The desserts were also amazing. We got the cheesecake and a chocolate dessert which was like a cookies and crème inside. Bomb. Price was extremely reasonable, and we are debating going again tonight lol. Service was also great!

    We enjoyed the chef's special grilled mussels, the pork shank, and the seafood Mac and cheese. The mussels were outstanding! The pork was not as tender as I expected but had good flavor. I would have enjoyed my experience so much more if we weren't seated in full view of the casino but back further into the restaurant since there were other booths available.

    Outstanding! The food was excellent, the service was stellar, and the ambiance was lovely. They were short on selections from the wine list, which was unfortunate, but that could be because of the pandemic causing transportation and supply availability. Other than that, we were very pleased with our experience at Storytellers.

    The service was excellent, my choice for dinner was not. The short rib tasted like a pot roast, no flavor. The soup and salad were mediocre at best. I had 1 glass of wine with my meal which came to $100 with tip, like I said, the service was excellent. A McDonald’s happy meal would have been more gratifying and much cheaper.
