Always good.....the Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding, as was the wild mushroom soup....excellent staff. Maria, our waitress is always pleasant and professional. Kudos to Terry, the manager, who remembers everyones name and warmly welcomes them.

We'll be back next month!

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...

I ordered the bone in rib eye and I asked the waitress if they had any type of spices Cajun souse to go with it and she said she will ask the chef , and he personally made me a Cajun butter sauce that I haven’t had at any other restaurant and I have tried a lot of place it was the best steak smothered in that sauce 12 stars for that chef

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!

I had the chicken Jidori and it was so overcooked that I could barely cut it with a knife. My husband had the Veal Parm and out came one large (tomahawk) style chop. Again tough. The service was good. I will give it another try at some point as I did hear people complementing the fish dishes.

Food was outstanding...service was good in the beginning, but towards the end of the meal she spent a little too much time talking to other tables (not dinner related topics) and left us sitting too long.

We'll go back for sure, especially since we're local.

Excellent service from the wait staff. Kept our drinks filled without interrupting our conversation. Wish I lived closer so I could dine here more often.

We love this place. Monica was our server and was so attentive, as were the food and drink runners. The manager came to our table twice to ask how everything was and if we needed anything. The food is wonderful and we have never had a bad experience. I had the New York steak and it was cooked to perfection. My son and daughter-in-law had sushi as an appetizer and they loved it. One ordered salmon for dinner, which she said was really good. The other ordered steak and said it was very tender and cooked just right. We were too stuffed at the end for dessert, but I know from prior visits that the Banana Bliss is awesome. You will not be disappointed.

We arrived an hour ahead of our reservation and asked if we could be seated early. We were provided with a nice table. The food was fantastic and the noise level was not disruptive. The service was below average as our server did not take out order for almost 15 minutes. She was also forgetful when asked for drink refills.
