Red Lantern – Thunder Valley Casino Resort Ratings and Reviews
The food was good for the most part. The hostess never smiled. So many different waiteresses came to the table. I couldn’t tell who our actual server was because I had to ask for everything. And it was a good thing I had it charged to the room because they never asked for my players card. Great service is hard to find nowadays.
Everything was great except the salt & pepper sea bass. The fried asparagus had 5-6 bottom shoots that should not have been cooked. They were woody, hard and stringy. Every cook or person that cut them into pieces should know not to cook the bottom portion of the asparagus shoot.
If I didn't bring half of them home I would of definitely brought it to the server's attention but I only spit out a couple while we were dining and the rest came home.
The service and the food was very good. The place was elegant and beautiful. This is my second visit. The price was a bit stretchy though. Because of the traffic and the concert, we were 10 minutes late and the front desk person was a little arrogant or annoyed with us but the back was perfect. Will dine again there.
I am vegan and I ordered the lunch special which was vegetable rolls ,rice ,soup and vegetables. I asked head of time what was in the soup the waitress told me that it was tofu and broth and green onion and I thought perfect ,when the soup came there was egg in it and I told her I am vegan and I do not eat egg the restaurant refused to give me something else in place of the soup they said under no conditions are there substitutions. To me that was bad service I asked for something else in its place and they still refused and said there are no substitutions. I explained to the waitress that I asked ahead of time what was in the soup and she did not tell me there was egg in the soup. They could have given me one extra veggie roll or say they were going to increase my serving of my vegetables anything would have been nice but they refused. Terrible customer service I will not be back
We had a great time dining here. The menu is extensive, but you can find your favorite and traditional chinese specialty items here. The food was piping hot, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. I wish we lived a little closer, so we could enjoy it more often. The waitstaff was helpful and friendly, and VERY patient as we made our selections. Our leftovers tasted just as good the next day. We will definitely visit again!
Very disappointing. We felt very rushed the entire time and the food was subpar. My partner asked the waitress to come back for his order because he hadn't decided what he wanted yet and she said 'I'll just wait' and stood there with her pencil ready to write until he decided. We got the Lettuce Wraps as an appetizer. Someone delivered them, shoving them in front of my partner. He was a bit confused about it. Plates for the appetizer came after it was delivered. The wraps were fair but the 'filling' was finely chopped up something with a bit of chicken.
Only a couple of minutes after we got the appetizer, our meals were delivered. We both ordered the Roast Duck and it was rubbery and barely warm, all of it was from the backbone. The Potstickers were also lukewarm and very dried out on one end, overall very leathery. The Crab Claw Shrimp Ball was almost all fried dough with a tiny bit of shrimp and a small Crab claw stuck in the end of it.
The dining room is nice decor but very noisy. We couldn't figure it out since it wasn't that crowded. Although we had a reservation and they were not full, they sat us at a small table, on a busy path, where one of us was staring into the waitress station. Not too enjoyable or appetizing.
I've had much better food at take-out Chinese places. For one cocktail, tea, one appetizer, and 2 specials ($18), it was $60. We don't recommend this restaurant at all and will not go back.
The noise level was ridiculous. We had 6 people at a round table and had to speak very loudly to hold a conversation. The food was served at the same time as the appetizer which was not expected nor desired. The food was below average in taste for the price. I would not recommend this restaurant nor will I revisit.
Greasy food. Waitress rushed us to order and then took our order with the table next to us. My husband ordered a Diet Coke which I had to ask for as we were already eating. When it finally came it wasn't Diet Coke. She said Pepsi no Coke after he started drinking it. Then she promptly turned and left. I was asked if I wanted a box when I was still eating. Terrible service and food. Tables too close. The tables pad Thai smelled off. Never will return! Horrible experience.
They were accommodating. We got there much earlier than the booked time but they allowed us to dine.
Our server was great. She recommended great dishes and even reminded me of the 5% discount with my thunder valley card.
The food was delicious.
Noise level very high - we were seated in the back with very large groups of people.
The original waiter was confused about ordering our drinks and requested we "write them down"
That was a first - then another waitress came by did assist but took 15+minutes to get (at that time) 2 drinks -
vodka cranberry and a white russian.!!!! Pretty standard drinks -
When I received the bill it was clear I was to pay 18% tip and to be quite honest I usually pay 20% but I felt his work was just fair - and not really worth 18% however, it was Easter and I had my immediate family with me and did not want to get into the weeds over this matter.
I found myself extremely disappointed in the service at Red Lantern, Not only was it a very special occasion for the three of us girls to get together for my birthday. After spending $120 the hostess came to our table after we paid for a bill still glasses of martinis and champagne and asked us to leave because there was a table waiting. I have never in my life ever been asked to leave because someone is waiting. In total and complete shock, all three of us stood
up with our full glasses of champagne and left the restaurant. Unbelievable. I am in the service of customer service and I'm so disappointed that my birthday was cut short.
