Service was outstanding by Susie. We had sushi and it was very good. Dessert was off the charts good. We ordered the Banana dessert which is their signature dessert.
Nice wine list and cocktails. Good attention to detail.

I always enjoy eating at The Bistro, however, although our server was nice and friendly, any time we needed something he was hanging out talking to another server. Each time I’ve had the opportunity of eating at The Bistro I have had EXCELLENT service. This was the first time it was just ok. The Lobster soup was wonderful but I didn’t care for the Crab Cakes. Next time I’ll order something else. I will be back since I only live about 3 miles away

We have had dinner here many times & never been disappointed. The food is ALWAYS excellent; steaks are cooked to your request, drinks are also excellent & of course you can’t go wrong with any of the delicious desserts. The staff has always been very nice & helpful; always smiling & wanting to please. This is my favorite restaurant.

Lobster is not usually served black, but this restaurant managed to do it while still leaving it undercooked. Slow service, bad food, high prices.

Took my daughter and Son-in law for his Birthday. The food was excellent. We had the lobster pasta dish. Lobster tail, filet, tomatoes mozzarella salad, California rolls. It was all perfect. I normally get the rack of lamb and escargot which I love, but wanted to try something different. Glad I did. Best dinner. Great food and service.

We have spent the last 5 anniversaries having dinner at The Bistro. After the first meal we were hooked. The service was wonderful. Everyone, the hostess, the waitress, and other servers were excellent. Of course, the food was great. I think we've had the fillet steak every anniversary. It can't be beat. I was done to perfection and melted in your mouth. This was our 52nd anniversary and we hope to spend many more at The Bistro.

Went to treat my wife on Mother’s Day. We both had the special and were greatly disappointed. We were told there would be lots of food so we decided not to get a starter. When the plates came they each consisted of one crab leg cut in half, one scallop, one shrimp, and one small very tough lobster tail, asparagus and a small helping of potato. This 5 minute meal was $60 per plate so ridiculously overpriced. Will not eat there again at these prices for sub par food.

My wife and I went to dinner for our “date night” and she chose The Bistro. I ordered the pork chop medium, which was the chef‘s recommendation stated by our server. When it was served it was at best medium rare more like rare, raw and cold in the center. I asked the server to send it back and have it cooked medium, which was how I ordered it originally. The pork chop was brought back to me and it was still medium rare at best, raw and still cold to the touch in the center. I did not finish the pork chop obviously, and was never offered it to be discounted or taken off my bill. I did not ask for a discount, but thought it was odd that no discount was offered, nor did the manager come to our table to check and see if everything was ok after sending back the pork chop, and the manager was the one who brought the pork chop back to me. My wife had the filet mignon, ordered it medium and it was cooked perfect. The best thing about our dinner was the filet mignon and us leaving. We will not be back and will not recommend The Bistro to anyone.

Inside the Fantasy Springs Casino.
Great atmosphere and wonderful food.
Bit expensive but worth it, especially if you can use Casino comp credits.
Only draw back for the evening was the hard wooden chairs. Had seat cushion, but still hard.
