    Food was surprisingly tasty and the price was very fair. Service was fine but could have been better - as we (all 11) were kept waiting until our reservation time, even though there were empty tables all over. Clearly they did not have our table readily set up. Orders were not up all at the same time. Our server came by to ask if it would be alright if there would be a 15 minutes lapse time for half the orders. What were we suppose to say? No?

    Slow service. Longest wait I've ever had for a meal- over an hour from the time ordered to the time it arrived at our table. There were only 4 of us, mind you, not a big party. Lobster bisque was brown instead of pink. Tasted like they used a beef base for the broth. Not at all lobster bisque. Crab cakes destroyed by sitting in a puddle if vinegar. Waitress never came back for refills- had to ask other waitresses passing to refill drinks. Even for a casino diner, it was terrible. I've been to other casinos with much better food and service. I do not recommend.

    Food was good, when we got it, service was a bit confused and slow! Maybe writing down the order would be better!

    Great dinner with a very attentive waiter. The Diamond Cafe impresses us more and more with each visit. The good was perfectly cooked and seemed like we were eating a home cooked meal.

    The Diamond Cafe is a cafe in a casino and hotel complex. If you are gambling in the casino or staying at the hotel and just need a quick bite to eat, the Diamond Cafe is up to the task. I had the French Dip and a cocktail, and they were both acceptable. But it is not, nor does it purport itself to be, a fine dining venue.

    Enjoyed the restaurant and the service. Will not return because there is not a serarate entrance and a person hs to go through the smoky casino to get there. Very unpleasant for someone with compromised lungs.
