Outstanding dinner with exceptional service. We sat close to the kitchen and food prep area so there was a little more traffic. There were other quieter and more romantic areas. The bar is intimate. Food was fresh, delicious and well prepared.

Service was great. My husband ordered the meatloaf and he said is was very good. I ordered a dish with lobster and the lobster was way over cooked, chewy, dry and absolutely not good. I talked with the server about it and they took it off my bill. That was very generous but I would have preferred good lobster.

As always, outstanding food and service. Quite noisy and busy for a Wednesday night. Excellent Asian options and out of this world steaks. Almost too much food for one person. Bring an ice chest and take the uneaten food home for the next day.

They really missed the mark this time. I had to send the food back twice to be cooked properly when they brought the food back they let the mashed potatoes get cold. When the filet was brought back to me the second time the manager had the nerve to tell me the lighting of the restaurant was causing the rare color of the steak - REALLY! I couldn't believe she would even dare to say that. There were fish bones in the fish - more than just a few. The dessert was burned and they still served it. The service was very good and the waiter was very embarrassed by the multiple food issues. I will have to think twice before going back. I am on the fence because normally they are pretty good and they have great prices for finer dining. Give them a try, maybe it was just my turn to have a bad meal experience.

We were treated very well. Amandas' Service was impeccable, hence very handsome tip for her. The food was excellent for varied palates. Manager came over to inquire on our table. That was much appreciated.
The finale was a delicious desert picked for our anniversary. Thanks Bistro!!

The Bistro is a lovely fine dining spot inside the Casino, where it is quiet enough for a romantic dinner but close to lots of fun activity for afterward. We have been here several times for special occasions and decided to try them for Thanksgiving dinner this year. It did not disappoint. The turkey was the most moist I have ever had, along with some great traditional side dishes. I couldn’t resist getting one of my usual favorites, in spite of the holiday, so I had the Miso glazed sea bass, and it was a beautiful thick cut, perfectly prepared. Be sure to check out their drink menu...In spite of not being much of a drinker, I absolutely love their Blue on Blue martini-like cocktail. It has a mixture of Stoli blueberry vodka and something called Hawaiin Crush. Whatever it is, it smells and tastes like a florist shop—Exquisite. Also be sure to look at the dessert menu—we typically order the Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie.

I also highly recommend the Kobe Beef Meatloaf, filled with white cheddar and served with an incredible gravy. We have tried several great starters, including the baby artichokes, the crab cakes, and the lobster bisque—all delicious. We look forward to trying some of their selections of sushi the next time we come...

Excellent service! It's always a great spot for celebrating. Normally every dish is prefect however we did have one issue with the duck pasta, however the dish was promptly taken away and replaced with a new dish. The manager visted the table and comped that dish. As always the banana blitz is my favorite and is the best desert EVER! Thank you for making my birthday feel special 😊

the experience special even though you are at a casino, you'd never know it! We love to come here for special occasions or simply an escape from the kitchen for me! Try the meatloaf, delicious. The Kobe hamburger is something extra special . My favorite is the sea bass, which is consistently a winner. Looking forward to our next visit!
