It was our 21 Anniversary they new that we got a view of the building it sucked. The best part of the night was our salad Maker. We will never go back nor recommend them to anyone.

The food was excellent. The dining was pretty noisy even though it wasn't full. Our server was very attentive, friendly, and engaging.

We went for valentines night out, service was not the best, wanted to sit in Henry’s section. Felt like we were left alone. The seafood is very good, we love the scallops and the sides, Brussel Sprouts & truffle mashed awesome! It has been a while since I had been here. I had the porterhouse steak and it was very disappointing for the price I paid, honestly could have gotten better steak at Safeway. Value at this restaurant has gone way down. Don’t know when we will go back.

Came in for wife’s birthday with another couple. The group and waiter beside us were very noisy. The appetizer was excellent and the steaks amazing. One was over cooked so they took it back and brought a new one perfectly cooked. The seafood tower was the downfall for us. Shrimp, oysters and octopus were very good the crab was dry and the clams were gritty to the point we left a dozen on the plate. Advise stick with the steaks they do them right.

We go almost every month and it just seems to get better. Be sure to do the table side scampi and bananas foster!

The only compliant I have is that the smoke filtration doesn't seem to work farther back in the restaurant.

The ambience and live jazzy music and view starts off the experience as very romantic and relaxing. This is followed by excellent and very accommodating service with outstanding food. What a great dining experience. We have been there before and highly recommend it.

Our server Kirsten was so pleasant. We were there for our wedding anniversary and she was very helpful telling us about the different types of steaks and the sauces for them. She knew what all of them were and could explain quickly and efficiently. The piano playing in the background and watching the tableside prep of our salad and desserts for others was entertaining. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or for entertaining someone from out of town. Great experience!😉

Dinner was good, but a bit overpriced. $100 for one entre, salad, dessert and 2 drinks. It was good, but not amazing. I've had better there before, maybe it was the new server? Desert was strange, called a sundae but very hard crunchy base that was difficult to eat with spoon/fork--actually needed a knife!

Been here a number of times. Great ambiance. Love the table side service, especially the Cesar. The menu has changed and the steaks have really diminished. I ordered a sirloin and my wife had a filet. Not up to par. Stuart Anderson style. Not a high end promoted steak house.

The food and service are great. The only negative I had is you can smell cigarette smoke in the restaurant coming from the casino. It is mild, but for someone who isn't around it much, it is definitely noticeable.

Lots of fun and excellent food and service. Our waiter, Henry, was professional and funny too. Caesar salad was the best, and the trio of steaks was a good choice. We will return.

The service was outstanding. However if there are 4 people at the table, it’s awkward to only bring 3 rolls. The truffle fries were cold and soggy. The steak flight was disappointing as the wagu was thin & over cooked. The porterhouse was burnt instead of seared on a rare cooking request. The beet salad, Mac & cheese & shrimp scampi were very good. We loved having the scampi cooked at the table as it made for a wonderful learning experience.
It was a good meal, but a steak house should know how to cook their meats.

Everything was wonderful! Our service was the best we have received anywhere in a very long time. They were attentive and drinks and food were all to perfection. Our server , had to be their best , and he added so much to the experience! We celebrated our anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it special. We will definitely be back!!

Vista used to be our favorite place to dine. The menu changed and the food quality and preparation has really gone downhill. Used to be a 5 star experience but I struggled to give it a 3. If it was based on food and preparation alone I would call it a 2 at best. Not long ago it was stellar. I have had better steaks for less than $12 at a local tavern. I don't know how they could screw up crab so badly.

Ate at the bar. Service was not great........our meatball appetizer came very late and was taken off our bill. Main dishes were bland and not great. Filet seemed more like a top sirloin. Overall, overpriced, not great service and not good good.

The ambience with the view and the pianist was amazing, as always. The food was delicious. However, the menu and plating recently changed. The food was a little disappointing - overcooked garnish and beef (should not have been served in that shape). Also, the restaurant now uses cast iron skillets instead of china to serve the food. This diminishes the quality of the restaurant and food. We would suggest they go back to the china in order to match the fine dining atmosphere.

Steaks were smoked which wasn't mentioned on the menu and too strong for some diners. Crab legs came out cool. Mods to salads were missed. No concessions were offered.

I enjoy Vistas new menu. However, I am disappointed that the 1 pound lobster was not brought back.

As always Henry and Rambo make any time at Vista super enjoyable. They both are just plain super in their service and caring abut every customer.

Love the place but quality is not the same as we remember. Caesars salad too strong but beautifully prepared and fresh. Crab cakes good size but no crab, mealy and greens with it terrible. Bread good. Service excellent. Nice touch for anniversary. Music perfect. Mac and cheese greasy and really awful😕. Drink excellent.

On Saturday the food was a miss - it's usually is so much better. We had the beet salad, trout and halibut. The beet salad was a little weird with puree walnuts - that tasted rancid to us - but we are told that is what the walnuts taste like. The one vegetable side on the trout plate was extremely weird - a mixture of random vegetables. The trout and halibut were just okay. It was disappointing.

The steaks are excellent, as is the shrimp scampi (made at your table). Some of the best desserts that I have ever had. Great service from everyone. It is a higher priced restaurant, but worth it.
