    Usually I love this place. However last night it was very busy. The waited took 30 min to first attend to the table. The manager was no where in sight. But I snuck a peek with him socializing with the employees. He was having a good time. At least someone was. I’m sure the manager is the only one who reads these reviews. So yeah dude you did a bad job last night. You could have been helping. Not just standing around and chatting. Maybe he’s new? Maybe he had a rough day. Maybe he needs a new job. Who knows.

    It was very dark made it hard for me to read the menu. Our waiter left our cups empty several times, he didn't tell us about the specials. The food actually hurt my stomach. I would not recommend. The best food was at the food court. The food quality was good I expected more. The bread was not good the potatoes were instant.

    Would love if there was a dress code. I am always disappointed with the patrons that come in wearing shorts t-shirt's and flip flops. I come for a special meal and dress up and the majority are wearing t-shirts.

    The dress code 'standard' were misleading. While the advertisement indicated business casual, my sport coat and dress slacks seem the exception rather than the rule. T-shirts, tennis shoes were prevalent amongst the guests and it brought down the what could have been a classy dining experience. The service was attentive as there must have been one person for each table function. Other than the stale rolls dotted with truffle butter, the food was excellent and exactingly prepared. While recognized by the Wine Spectator for Excellence, the wine list seemed limited in its variety and 'depth'. I was glad I brought my own vintaged complements. The 2009 Martinelli Pinot mellowed nicely with the ribeye/filet combo & the desserts of butter cake and creme brûlée were superb with my Beerenauslese.

    Chopped salad was wilted and had unripened veggies in it. The blue cheese dressing tasted like ranch. Without a doubt the worse $3 salad I have ever had to pay 14 dollars for. Asked for butter 3 times, got it on the 4th time. Mashed potatoes were cold. French Onion was way too salty. This place has gone way down hill and now FAR TOO EXPENSIVE. RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE for what you get. Never again for me.

    1. Gayle is the best. Kind, polite, knowledgeable. When we return, we want to be in Gayle’s section. 2. Food is excellent. We ordered light, knowing we could not take food home and wanted to not feel stuffed at the concert we were attending. Salmon, 8oz filet, asparagus and baked potato. Perfect amount, cooked to perfection. Every bite was perfect. 3. Watermelon mojito. I’m stealing the idea and making it at home. So good! 4. We didn’t order dessert. We wanted to, but refrained. Dessert menu looked excellent and can’t wait to try on our next trip. Is there a down side? The restaurant? No. It’s excellent. We arrived via rideshare. The drop off is in the outdoor smoking section. Hated it. I wish the rideshare and smoking section were not in the same spot.

    Stayed overnight so I could have Chateaubriand for two and a couple martini's without having to drive home (40 min drive). They did not disappoint. Service was friendly, and the food was excellent. Pechanga Junior Suite was also awesome, except for the view, which was my fault for not selecting a better one (next time...and there will be a next time!) Highly recommend!

    I have eaten here 3 times, each time the food is excellent, service is professional, kind, just excellent. White tablecloths add to the quality of food and service. With alot of good quality, fine dining giving way to fast food, the drive is worth it to be able to dine here. Only wish the entree excluded the sides, $10. for a baked potatoe or vegetable always seems so unreasonable, bump the entree up by $3 and include the sides. BUT again, my steak and potato were fabulous.

    Overall, this is a good special occasion place for people who like steak. The food is great, but my husband had to send back his first steak because it was very overcooked for the way her ordered it. They made another one pretty quickly, and the second one was done correctly.

    The service was excellent, the food very good. We felt it is very pricey because everything is individually priced. All of us chose the smallest cut of meat because we can no longer eat a 20oz piece of meat. Wish there had been more options in that regard.

    This is clearly not an inexpensive restaurant, but the food is outstanding and worth the cost. The steaks are very good and do not leave without having the Butter Cake, it is perhaps the best desert I have ever had. I would return just for that!

    I had high hopes & was disappointed. It was my birthday & after trying to contact them for over 2 weeks with no one ever answering the phone I called the casino. I wanted them to know my food allergies & that it was my birthday. 1st thing delivered to my table! What I have a food allergy for! Not a good look. Things just got worse… My Caesar salad was so loaded with cheese I could not eat it 😅. My friends onion soup had little to no cheese 😅 All the sauces for steaks have gluten which I’m allergic & they have been told this several times now & yet my steak is delivered with two sauces. 🤪 The asparagus was mushy & the mashed potatoes tasted fake 🤪 Left without looking at the desert menu because why even bother? Not what you want on your birthday to have happen. The service was not equal to the high cost of the food making it a night I’d rather forget which is the opposite of what it should have been. Sad but honest review.

    Our busser, Jonathan, was very sweet and accommodating. Joe, our server was very attentive without hovering. And of course the food was top notch. The seafood platter was plenty for our appetite that day so we ordered sides and left room for my FAVORITE dessert.. butter cake.

    Not like the past where I had a filet mignon that I could cut with a fork. Quality has gone down. Was looking for an experience that we had a few years ago and we were sorely disappointed. There were kids that were noisy, etc. Service okay but not outstanding. The quality of the steak was poor, not worth the $50.00 we paid for it. Won't come back again.
