On our first visit with a reservation we were warmly greeted and seated right away. The service was attentive, but we would have preferred a little less hovering.
My lobster ravioli was good. My partner said his pork was over cooked. The salad he had was just okay. I tasted it and didn’t care for the squash slices in it. The bread they served, an olive stuffed croissant was also just okay.
The waitress told us this restaurant used to be the more formal Tulalip Bay, but it was reimagined to be more casual. The decor and ambiance were excellent and reflected this, but the service wa still too formal and the food was not worth going back for. However, this place would be good for joining friends for a drink at the bar.

The service was fast and attentive. We went for special occasion "anniversary" It is definitely not a special occasion location. They gave us the best table they had for the occasion but we were way over dressed. The food was good but not what I would consider great. I think the best way to describe it is Casino casual sweat pants, plaid shirts, and jeans. Hamburgers to Steak. Better than a tavern steak but not a steakhouse steak.

Great service and food choices. The only thing to consider is that it is in Tulalip casino, therefore you will hear background noise of the slot machines, as have to deal with cigarette smoke while walking through the casino to get to the restaurant... My wife and I eat here about 2 times a month and it has always been great. We usually sit at the bar and are served by Jay, who is very knowledgeable and friendly. Go try it out!

Food was good, however, for some of the menu items, the portions were questionable for the price. For example, our friends ordered the Lobster Ravioli for $25.00. The dish came with 6 -8 ravioli shells only. Hardly a filling meal. I, on the other hand, ordered the Pappardelle which was quiet good and plentiful. I would rate the restaurant as "nice", but certainly not special.

I really wanted to like this restaurant but was disappointed. The crab and heirloom tomato salad was bland, no acidity in the crab mixture or salt to balance the flavour of the crab or add to the dish. I’m not certain the tomatoes were heirloom either. The server was great, but the cacio e pepe was really disappointing. Nice table side service but It was overall bland and tasteless. In their defence, I had the real thing in Rome. This lacked any cheesiness, salt or pepper.

I was already extremely excited waiting for this place to open up. Finally Tulalip Casino will have a good pasta place! The pastas are amazing and the Wagyu New York steak is to die for. It's not super quiet and secluded like the restaurant before it there but I think that just makes it better! It has an open entrance to the casino so you can hear all the slots and excitement while enjoying your meal. I see people saying it's too loud, but I've dined here over 5 times now and I am always able to have a quiet conversation with my friends and the casino sounds are only background music that is easily ignored. Best thing Tulalip has done for itself is open this place up!

This was a date night for my husband and me. What a great atmosphere and the food was absolutely amazing. The Sous Vide New York steak was definitely a close first, to the best steak we’ve ever had. It was cooked to perfection. We will be back to try more of the steak options. Roger, our server was very friendly and knowledgeable and all other staff were very friendly as well. Thank you Tula Bene. We will return soon.

Table has no tablecloths therefore every time a plate was taken away, knife and fork is not replaced and must be put on top of table. No place else to place it. If plate is taken away forks and knifes need to be replaced. Not sanitary since table is only wiped and not sanitized.

We primary went here to try out the Cacio E Pepe and it did not disappoint. It was prepared tableside by our server who explained the process of how it was being done and why it was being done. In addition to the Cacio E Pepe, we also ordered the lobster ravioli, it came as a trio of ravioli along with sous vide lobster medallions. This dish was quite tasty and I would definitely order it again. However, I did find it a tad small for my liking. We also ordered parmesan fries. This was good but nothing special as I can get this at many other places too.

Overall, great food, great service. We were fortunate enough to have Nona as our server. She was super friendly and attentive, as were all the staff that we encountered. My only complaints is that the portions were a little smaller than I had expected and the food got cold really quickly - although that may be as a result of the restaurant being quite cold that night. Aside from this, I’d definitely return.
