Rustic Kitchen Bistro & Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was our second visit to Mohegan Sun in PA. The first time we went to Ruth Chris, so we wanted to try something different. Very conveniently located, atmosphere was fun although very wobbly table. Service was excellent. Food-eh. Wouldn’t necessarily go back. The Italian spring rolls were maybe the best bite I’ve had in awhile. The potato crab soup was also delicious, however a special. Now, main dishes. I had the special chicken ravioli and my husband had the Bolognese dish. For an Italian inspired restaurant, the pasta was poorly cooked. I love al dente but this was down right crunchy. The ravioli also lacked a little flavor and was very heavy. The arugla was needed to cut through the sauce. For the other dish, the ratio of meat sauce to pasta was also off. So much sauce on top of pasta and the sauce was mushy. The flavor of the meat sauce was delicious . I just wish that the pasta was cooked more and the meat in the sauce wasn’t so pasty. The service was great however I did feel rushed as the dishes came out without any time really in between courses. Our server was very attentive and wonderful however the manager came over 6 too many times to check in on us. A plus was it’s priced Very well. Overall eh. I kind of had a better meal at the buffet brunch the next morning in the hotel and will try probably that next time for dinner.
The ambiance was nice. I liked the way the place was decorated. The pasta said “homemade” the main reason I decided to book the place and I’m told it’s not. So I was disappointed. The Caesar salad came out in a bowl made of crouton. It was tasty and the pizza was good.
Wasn’t thrilled with my pasta dish of macaroni and cheese and my bf got the rigatoni which looked tasty but I could make it at home with jar sauce.
The drink choices were fun and tasty.
They offer cooking classes which was going on at the time. Looked fun.
I don’t think I would go back. I would try somewhere else.
Great fun concept... the food was amazing and well prepared, the filet was amazing. We were there for dinner for a birthday, and yes, they have very taste cake made in house you can order. The only downside, it is extremely loud. We had to basically scream over everyone, including our party of (7), just to hold a conversation.
This past Friday was my third time dining there and it was great as always! I have had large sized business events and birthday dinners at Rustic Kitchen and my guests love it every time. I had the same waiter and he is great. I can't remember his name (shame on me!). I will always recommend this place! I love the menu!
the food has no taste. Steak was hard to chew and sinewy. Potatoes had no taste.
This was my first time at your restaurant and I unfortunately don't have a good review.
Each of us that had steak had the same opinion, also i had was told the other meals were not very good either.
Service wasn't so great, we waited a long time for drinks.
Great dinner and vibe within The Mohegan Sun Casino. Was in the area for the wknd and made reservations for this place ahead of time. Glad we did because I noticed a few people waiting for tables for at least 20 minutes. The food was quite delicious w/ freshly prepared ingredients. The boo had the clam chowder and the Tuscan salmon and was thoroughly enjoying it by the way her eyes rolled back in her head with each bite. I had the meatballs (beef) al forno and a special for the evening, Chilean Sea Bass w/a ponzu corn glaze. One word...Damn!!! All in all a great time and a great meal.
We have dined here numerous times (like 50+). This time was not great, it was bearly good. Very disappointed.
I ordered a salad and eggplant rolitini. The eggplant has decreased from three rolls to two ( this has been for awhile now) with no change in price. Ordinarily they are worth it however, that was not the case. Lacked cheese and taste .
Yes, I would give it another try.
We have dined here quite a number of times. Rustic Kitchen always provides wonderful food and great service. It's the best restaurant in Mohegan Sun Pocono as far as our group is concerned. The scallops were amazing and plentiful, as are the Home made pastas and signature drinks!
The menu was great. They had a Wednesday "all you can eat pasta" special. That is what I had (Creamy Pesto with Penne) and it was delicious. No need for seconds. The appetizer of risotto balls was especially tasty. The waitress was very cordial and professional.
