Fantastic food and service. Went for anniv dinner and shared chateaubriand. Perfect. Great wine list. Lovely service.
Ambiance... unfortunate very strong odor of cigarettes from the casino. Really detracted from our experience. They need much better ventilation in the restaurant.
Lastly- who the heck designed the architecture so that the beautiful view is 50% obstructed by beams running criss cross in front of every window, at eye level? Seriously WTF? Would never hire which ever architecture firm did that. Insanity.
We will go back only to sit outside on the deck with full view and no smoke!
Lovely piano music during dinner. Excellent quality steaks!
Had a fabulous date night dinner before a concert at the venue! Food, wine, service and view was great!!
Our party of four adults enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The only thing off was I ordered my very expensive steak medium and it was rare. Everyone had their food and the manager offered to send mine back but I didn’t want to be the only one not eating. He gave me a free dessert
I don’t understand how at 75.00 minimum a head, you can’t get the steak right the first time
First off, the food was excellent, but over-priced.
Our visit got off to a poor start when the host at the front desk could not find our reservation (for four people). They had a full restaurant, and the best they could offer us was a two-hour wait. They did not make much of an effort to fix the problem, which, it turned out, had a simple solution. What happened was our friends arrived about ten minutes ahead of us and were seated. The hostess who seated them then must have erased the reservation, despite the fact that only half the party had arrived. Before we arrived, a new host took over the front desk, and that is when the problem started. He (Troy) didn’t know half our party was already seated, and he couldn’t find the deleted reservation, so we were denied entry. I specifically asked Troy if it was possible that our friends had arrived, but he didn’t even check.
We fixed the problem ourselves by texting our friends, and they told us they were waiting for us inside. We told Troy, and we were seated.
I will say that our waiter, Henry, did a good job to make the rest of our dinner an enjoyable occasion. The manager eventually comped us our appetizer and dessert. Troy did apologize as we were leaving.
If we do return to Vista, then i will be sure to bring a hard copy of my reservation with me as proof.
Best steak on the mountain. I was very impressed with the Tomahawk steak. Perfectly prepared and cooked.
Vista features excellent steaks, a great wine list and wonderful table-side service.
Their piano and featured singing performers are very talented and will perform your requests.
The view is looking east towards Mt Si and is spectacular
Table-side preparation of scampi and caesar salad are highly recommended and truly enjoyable. Save room for the cherry jubilee dessert prepared by an real expert!
Steaks are the featured fare.
Other menu items including Northwest seafood selections are not the focus here.
We came here in our Wedding night & the staff were phenomenal. We were running a little late & it was no trouble at all. They sat us at a beautiful table & had pre- prepared the table with rose petals. It’s was so romantic. The food was to die for & we were both in heaven!
We enjoyed ourselves so much & it definitely something me will look back on & remember as being an amazing end to our wedding night!
If you don't have the points to pay for your meal, I'd pass. Prices have gone up over the years and quality/portions have gone down. There are better values in town if you are paying cash.
Super amazing food, best steak I have ever had! All around wonderful experience and Vista is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants.
We have been at Vista a few times and we have enjoyed it every time. Great staff and great food. The meats are excellent. Really good view if the weather is clear enough. It is not a cheap eats place but the service, view and food are worth the price. Vista is at par (or better) with all of the other top steak places in greater Seattle and much easier for parking.
We visited this restaurant two weeks ago and through their self admission ended up comping our whole dinner. We were so impressed that we came back again and the service was absolutely spectacular, the food was great, and Autumn was our server again and she was fabulous.
I went with my mom and my brother we had a wonderful dinner it was family time together and our waiter made it even more special
All the employees were amazing and made our Anniversary wonderful 2nd year.
Excellent meal and prompt service. Cost about qhat you would spend at other high end eateries around Seattle but they certainly have an edge on the others with table side prep of some items and quality of the food.
The view is nice. Waiters and waitresses are attentive. Food is good, will go again, soon.
Was not will we expected at all. When we do not realize the casino allowed smoking and that there is not a separate entrance to the restaurant. So, unfortunately, you have to walk through the smoke-filled casino to get to the restaurant. The food was average we had a filet mignon that was you were that stuff lacking in overall flavor.
Birthday dinner. GREAT!
Great dinner...lots of table presentations...worth the money
Unfortunately, our dining experience was not very good this time (we have had very good meals before). The Caesar Salad had way TOO much dressing. My wife's filet mignon was cooked perfectly, but unfortunately I went for the Pork Chop and it was undercooked not edible. Since we have a rule of never sending anything back to the kitchen, I had to settle for eating a baked potato and rolls. Not a very good 38 year anniversary dining experience to say the least.
Overall very good. Seated in a timely manner, although our booth was next to the service entrance and so wasn't particularly romantic (we visited on Valentines Day). My wife's warm spinach salad was neither warm nor included any dressing, and my lobster chowder (one of the evening specials) was sadly quite bland. Things improved with the main course. My NY steak and my wife's ribeye were perfectly cooked, and the accompanying side sauces were quite good. We also had an order of the roasted Brussels spouts that were excellent. The dessert menu was tempting, but we were quite full from dinner and so were able to resist. The wine list was varied and inclusive, and the by-the-glass selection adequate. Again, overall an enjoyable meal. We'll visit again.
Love the quality of food at Vista. Steaks equal high end steak houses, and menu has good variety of seafood too. Must order the fancy legs Dungeness crab app! It is a great value—you get approx 12 crab leg meat pieces, out of the shell, ready to eat—delicious! I sometimes order this as my meal, but it is a nice amouse bouche for up to 6 ppl. My husband always has the filet mignon, which is cooked to med rare perfection, but many of our friends prefer flavor of the tomahawk or ribeye. The wedge salad w/bay shrimp is a perfect starter. Sweet bread comes w/meal. Good selection of wines.
FIXED MENU was AWESOME!! Please keep it till your season picks up cuz we'll be back! Compliments to the chef-do frequent other great rests-El G. SStar JJHowie but Vista prepared best Salmon per my request!! Filet melted in Bday husbands mouth!! Service was gracious! Dessert was also very beautifully presented & also so scrumptious! Evening was perfect-no rushing!!
Service was good, food was great. Friendly, upscale atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
My girlfriend and I each ordered the gold grade filet and they were incredible, in fact everything we ordered was excellent except the salad my girlfriend ordered. The salad lack imagination and had barely any dressing on it. Had the salad lived up to the standards of the steaks, potatoes, asparagus, shrimp cocktail and bananas roster would have given a five star review.
Excellent service, great atmosphere, and outstanding food.
Celebrated a special birthday. Great atmosphere, food and wait staff.
We had a great time. The food was amazing! Tender steaks, excellent crab cake and delicious salads. We will return for another special occasion.
We enjoyed everything about Vista. This was our first visit. The Bartender and staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The restaurant was fabulous! we had the best Birthday due to how the restaurant waitress and staff presented their self. Thank you for such a wonderful memorable visit.
Food is Deeeelicious and the service is Excellent!!
My belief this is the best steak house in Washington state.
Took 40 minutes after finishing entree to get dessert
My husband and I went there twice...so far. Every time we went, the restaurant Employees were super friendly and to my service dog, BoBo. The food have been awesome. Price- a bit high.
Great Service. Great Food. We will return. And recommend to anyone looking for a special occasion place.
From start to finish everything was first class EXCEPT the coffee was NOT decaf. We were awake in the early hours and obliged to watch TV while our caffeine levels subsided to the point where we could fall asleep again. We do not blame the waiter, Bryce for this error. His performance was superb as was Andy's who created the wonderful scampi dish. And we will return to Vista again for the outstanding food, service and ambiance.
Excellent once again! The meal, the service and the ambience make it my go-to place for special occasions.
I have enjoyed this restaurant on a number of occasions and it never fails to delight me and my guests for its ambiance, impeccable service and DElicious food.
For steak heads and beyond and butter beyond belief but you can modify and be healthy
Overall we were very pleased. Any areas that I feel could’ve been approved upon were overlooked due to our excellent service from Henry. When we go out to spend that much on dinner it’s important that not only the food is good, but the experience is guided by a true professional. We completely enjoyed every moment thanks to Henry’s remarkable service.
Great food, wonderful wait staff. Relaxing and warm atmosphere. Good for special occasions and everyday dining. Best steak I have had in a while. Highly recommended.
