Restaurant is inside Mohegan Sun casino. The decor is a bit dark and it was noisy. Food was very good. I had the saffron shrimp pasta and the chocolate bottle creme brûlée. They were both delicious!

The food was very good. Two of us had steaks which were done perfectly. The scallops with risotto was also very nice. The wine selection was good. Our server was decent but not very engaging. Overall it was a good meal but a little pricey.

Service was great and food was good. It's on the spendy side so it is good for special occasions.

I thought the prices were higher than the last time I visited. However, the strawberry spinach salad with chicken was excellent. I would return just for that. The complimentary appetizer was great. One friend thought the calamari was too spicy and another thought her grilled burger was just okay. The wine prices were slightly higher than I pay at my local country club.

First, I wish there had been some indication on Open Table that this restaurant was in a casino. I would not have chosen it had I known that. The food is very expensive and was not very good.

We have always had great dining experiences at Rustic Kitchen. This past visit was less than stellar. It wasn’t busy. It was actually the least busy I have ever seen it. Our food took 2 hours. We ordered an app and it came out pretty quick but waited for our main entrees. When we got our food, mine was not great. The risotto was crunchy and undercooked. The scallops were fishy. My husbands pasta was fine, but nothing more. We usually love to go there but it was a total miss this past time.

The food and service was great. The waitress Sara was outstanding. Your hostess was not friendly. I had reservations, I asked for a booth or corner table. She responded with I was going to put you here (in front of the door). “Well wait here”. She put us at a table, she didn’t want to be there, and after our encounter with her, he didn’t either.

I loved coming here but this last experience was not good at all .. The calamari was so greasy and got mostly fried crumbs and peppers then calamari .. My wine pour was so small and not worth the money at all .. Our server was super nice but all over the place .. Very high stung and not consistent. My husband ordered the soup of the day and it was 4 pieces of dry chicken and 5 little pieces of carrots the size of peas thrown in water .. no flavor .. it was the worst ..I finally got my meal and it was completely wrong .. Not what I ordered .. Don’t think we will be back

Everything was great - the food was awesome and the service was exceptional. The only complaint we had was that they crammed 5 of us in a very small table. There was not enough room for 5 drinks/place settings let alone apps and entrées. We were very squished but very happy with everything else. :)

I always get the clams and pasta in the white! They never have enough sauce on it so I always ask for extra, they told me next time I ask for extra sauce I’m getting charged.

We went to the Rustic Kitchen for Mother's Day. The staff was very welcoming to us and everyone who stopped by our table wished me a happy Mother's day. The food was very good, we were not rushed so I was able to enjoy my time there with my family. I ordered Scallops with Risotto, it was done just right. The Lemon Raspberry layer cake, the special for dessert was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. This is a very nice restuarant, we will go there again for a special occasion. The prices are a little high for everyday dining.

Our waiter was FANTASTIC! The food was also excellent, as was the special caramel chocolate cake. But the thing that made the difference between this and any other great restaurant meal was our waiter. Hard working, friendly, professional....he really made the difference!

Group of six of us celebrating my daughters college graduation. I called ahead and they had two bottles of white wine chilling. Started off with the crab stuffed mushrooms and fried calamari. Between us had the rustic clam chowder (awesome..creamy and chunks of clams and potatoes) Caesar salad and strawberry spinach salad (fresh and dressing to perfection). Our entrees sea scallops, filet, ny strip and linguine and meatballs. Everything was cooked to perfection. I’m a hard one to please when it comes to dining out and this place was great!!!
We have even talked about going back to experience the cooking show. Great celebration night😁

Food is always great. Service is good. However, we asked our waitress to hold our appetizers until another couple came, they didn't. The appetizers came less than 5 minutes after we ordered. Another couple came almost half an hour after the appetizers were on table. Appetizers were still delicious even though they weren't cold.

I have been to this place before, and it seems to have lost a little something. The food this time was either under cooked or over done. It may of been a off night, but it was the second time we had issues like this going there.

Wonderful service and friendly staff. They make you feel welcome right from the entrance. The food and cocktails are always fresh and there is a wide variety of choices to choose from. The strawberry salad is new to the menu and we both loved it. We also had the tuna and the veal. I was sceptical about the tuna(was spoiled with fresh caught when living in NJ) but it was amazing, as was the veal. We had a wonderful experience.
