We decided to share two main entrees and then get a side of vegetables to share as well. The Pappardelle was very tasty -- the homemade basil noodles were a unique taste and the sauce (containing the homemade sausage) tasted as if it had been braised for hours. Very worth it. The bone-in rib eye was prepared to our required wellness and our waiter even had us cut into it right away (while he was standing there) to check to make sure it was as we wanted, which was appreciated. The side vegetable (broccolini) was a bit too tough for me whereas my husband thought it was perfect. Sharing both the steak and the pasta dish was quite enjoyable and likely what we'll do next time we visit Tula Bene.

I do think the steak is a bit overpriced, especially some of the other cuts that we didn't get, and I would have preferred that a vegetable be provided with the steak instead of having it be a separate side/price. There also could have been a second vegetable choice provided other than the broccolini, as I'm afraid the next time I come that the one vegetable choice may be something I don't like.

There was service by various people so that our table was cleared quickly and our drinking water was kept filled. The waiter was attentive to our needs and we didn't have to flag him down for anything.

I would give this restaurant a 5 star but they took Tulalip Bay restaurant out for this and that restaurant had so many unique things about it that I do miss. The extra mile isnt there anymore

Outstanding! My wife and I love this restaurant for its outstanding chef creations. Joseph is an excellent waiter and Lorraine is a very knowledgeable sommelier. Just be sure you are prepared for sticker shock when the bill comes. Try to get some type of discount or deal to bring the price down to comparable restaurants.

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.
