My wife and I enjoyed a lovely evening at the Tulalip bay for a fun getaway night. It was not only romantic and beautiful, but was also elegant and abundantly appetizing! The service was amazing and the food was delicious.

We highly recommend dripping by for a dinner date here.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated as if we were very special guests. There was a sensitive balance between over-welcoming and ignoring. Both of us commented on how the service was amazingly gracious but neither of us remember anyone coming to our table and being engaged in our evening; we loved the unobtrusiveness. Just how excellence should be...everything was perfect but we don't remember how it was perfect. Simply amazing. Our waitress was amazing...outstanding temperament and graciousness, again, without being intrusive. We plan to come back very soon.

Everything was delicious. We ordered steak and it was perfect. I only wish I wouldn't have ordered crispy Brussel sprouts as a side. They were raw. The oysters were delicious as a starter. Love that we weren't rushed. A true dining experience.

Came for a birthday dinner for my husband. He opted for the always spectacular lobster raviolis and I had the grilled skirt steak with blueberries & served on arugula with a tiny sip of housemade limoncello. Beautiful! Lovely, unpretentious service. Love this place!

This was a fabulous choice for dining before our concert. Although the menu is small, everything was wonderfully prepared and delicious. They have an excellent selection of wine and cocktails to accompany your meal choices. All of the wait staff were friendly and professional. I would definitely go back again.

This was probably the 5th time we have been to Tulalip Bay and likely our last. While the atmosphere and service were excellent, the food just doesn't cut it. The menu was very limited. I had the lobster bisque and found it to be very bland. My wife had a filet which she enjoyed. It was properly cooked and had good flavor. I had a NY that was also properly cooked. Although it was tended it was totally lacking any flavor whatsoever.

While I don't mind paying a premium for good food and good service I expect just that.

Considering that there were only a couple of other covers at the time we were there (7:00 to 8:00 on a Friday night) maybe it is time to reconsider your menu.

We are really disappointed that this is no longer one of our "go to" places.

* Updated: the restaurant has been closed and being completely changed- definitely not excited about the new concept of family style dining... too bad because it was: Such a hidden gem inside the Tulalip Casino! Once you are inside, you totally forget you are at the casino... The food and service are above and beyond anything else in Snohomish County! No kids, no casino noise- unexpected perfection! I cannot say enough good things about the steaks!

I was concerned about the change in chefs and theme, having had great experiences in the past at this restaurant, but there was no need. The same excellent service, delicious food, unique wine list, unique menu choices. Food was excellent. The only shortcoming was they are leaving the doors open now, which allows the smoke from the casino to come into the restaurant.

Service was outstanding. Very attentive but not hovering. Food was good but not great. Brussel sprouts were list as crispy so assumed they'd be nicely roasted. No, they weren't but were good anyway - just not great. Rack of lamb was good but not outstanding. Ambiance was relaxing and nice. Nice noise level so you could have a nice conversation! Still overall we would return if we're going to a concert or in the area (we don't gamble because of the smoke so we would be there for shopping or on our way back from somewhere).

We loved this place in the past, but they either changed chefs or recipes and the food outside of regular beef / lamb menu was not as good. Used to lure us away from Seattle dinning, not sure it will next time.

We chose this restaurant after reading the write up in the Everett Herald. For the price point we were expecting more. The crab cake appetizer was not much crab. One person in our party had pork and it was very fatty and the fat portion was not completely cooked. Another ordered a lobster tail and was puzzled to receive it with a white sauce over it, which is not mentioned on the menu. Their beets did not come in for the roasted beet salad and the "Italian" replacement salad was over dressed. I am not a fan of truffle oil, which they use in their mash. The steaks ordered were cooked and tasted fine. Another person had the side shrimp with their steak and they were a bit rubbery and/or overcooked.

Used to go to Tulalip bay a lot. We recommend Tulalip Bay good back to their old menu, better than the new menu. Had the 24oz bone-in-ribeye. The bone was bigger than the steak and probably weighted more, disappointing. And the steak was not very tender. Also had chicken fettuccine, fettuccine pasta was good, chicken was dry and kind of tough. They need to improve, they are going backward!

I'm always pleased with the food at Tulalip Bay....and this was no exception. The service wasn't as sharp as past visits, but still good. When I made reservations I had mentioned this was for a birthday celebration, and when they called to confirm the reservations I let them know it was actually for two people. They asked for the names....which I gave to them. This created a little expectation that at some point someone would say "happy birthday" or something...but nothing special took place. Not sure why they asked?

We did make the reservation ahead and noted that we would like a quiet corner and were celebrating a birthday, but neither was addressed.

Incredibly overpriced... $45 for three small raviolis is getting ridiculous. Then, the waiter tells us we can't use our membership card to get the discount when charging to the room. Since when? This place used to be excellent when Chef Dean Shanigawa was there but has gone downhill at a neck breaking speed.

We wont be back.
