 (El Paso)·Dined 5 days ago

Very nice place, service, staff and food was excellent. Only negative is the wine list needs to be expanded. Great steak but I did not think my wife’s crab cakes were good, very marginal.

I was however impressed and would come back for sure.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the restaurant was; the service levels are high and the staff well trained and aware. Our dinner was really good. Our only complaint on the "surf and turf" style menu item we selected was that the lobster was dry - but the steaks and the rest of the meal were excellent. It's too bad you have to enter from a smoke-filled casino - we did smell of cigarettes upon returning home. We would definitely come back and look for a different route into the restaurant.

I dined here for my birthday on Saturday and enjoyed a delicious meal. The Steakhouse salad was the bomb and my filet Oscar was cooked to perfection.
My date had a delicious Malbec at the recommendation of our server and he was not disappointed.
The restaurant did have a faint cigarette odor which was more noticeable at first.
Beautiful restaurant with great food.

Entire experience was 5-star! Angel, our server, had perfect timing. Caesar salad was delicious, perfectly chilled, and large as was the wedge. Prime rib was awesome. Loved being able to bring a great wine from my cellar for a small corkage fee. All in all ... can’t wait to make my next reservation!!

Excellent food and service! We had the caesar salad it was very fresh and tasty. We love anchovies and they are happy to add brown or white if you like. The New York steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The sides are really good and very large. So one side serves two.
Our waiter Juan was very attentive without rushing us. Excellent service! Hector behind the bar is also first rate. We eat here often when we are in the Palm Springs area. The price is not cheap but you get what you pay for here. We look forward to our next visit.

The Steakhouse exceeded our expectations! We went for the early bird special and had such a great time, came back the next night as well. Stellar wine collection and truly stellar customer service. Gary did a great job as our server, and the new GM Otto brings a great presence and takes the time to connect with every guest. Salmon and Petit Filet - delicious!!!

The food is always amazing. The service is impeccable. I just wish they wouldn't take so long to seat you. This happens every time we go so it's not an isolated incident. I don't know if it's done for anticipation but it's rather annoying.

We have been to The Steakhouse many times and have always loved the Tomahawk steak. This time, however, the flavor of the steak tasted like it was not aged enough. Also, my husband ordered the sea bass and it was overcooked and dry. The service was friendly and good as usual. I hope the food will be up to par next time.

I'm sorry to say that the food, 4 different entrees were all very average. And in this day and age with smoking laws as they are, you would think that the ventilation for more of a smoke free environment would be attainable.

The service was excellent.


We only went there because of a show and would not eat there in the future.

We live here full-time and have eaten at the chain steakhouses and the one that is local to the desert. The Steakhouse may be located in a casino, but you would never know it based on the decor, seating options, service, menu options and great service. This time around, our waiter was Shane, who continued our experience of professional, personalized service. The wine selection is fantastic and there are delicious and unique cocktails to choose from. TIP: If attending a show/concert, book early as the 5:00 to 7:00 slots fill quickly.

We had just been to Lawry's restaurant in Las Vegas for prime rib the week before. The prime rib at The Steakhouse at Agua Caliente was superior in every way to the prime rib at Lawry's! We were impressed by the food, service and friendly staff. We will be back again!

Filet was excellent. We returned our Side dish of broccoli and cauliflower au gratin. No flavor. Just Steamed vegetables, not what we expected. Creamed spinach came in it’s place, not much flavor either. For $10 or more the side dishes could be a lot a better. Lovely dining room. Great service.

Disappointing. We had a high expectation. Started with a nice Meritage Red wine that was reasonablely priced. Our starters were Ahi Poke and Wedge salad. Both looked fabulous, but both had little flavor. We both had the Prime Rib. Wonderful flavor and cooked to perfection. The accompanying Yorkshire pudding was inedible, burnt, cold, and never should have left the kitchen!! We had two sides: Creamed Spinach and Twice Baked Potato which were tasty. The chef needs to be tasting the dishes being produced and keeping an eye on what leaves their kitchen. We won't return. Sad.

Food and service were great, however if you are going before the show, give yourself at least 2 1/2 hours and ask for the check at least 30 minutes before you want to leave. Seems to be the place to go for dinner before the show and everyone wants to leave at the same time.

My husband and I were seated at a table in the very middle of a room which was otherwise full of groups of 4-9 diners at each table. As a result, it was extremely noisy and unpleasant. Shortly after we were seated, I asked to be reseated but, apparently the restaurant was too full and there were no quieter tables available.
In general, the food was quite good. The large area of the restaurant was very nice, but the little room we were put into had very little ambiance.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and service at The Steakhouse. We were there for a pre-theater meal which would be the only reason for me to dine there and my only reason for a recommendation. Convenience. The biggest negative is the fact the Casino’s entire ventilation system is TERRIBLE. It doesn’t matter where you go (except the theatre) it stinks like stale smoke! Even inside the dining room. A patron was smoking inside he restaurants toilets. Unlike Vegas casinos/hotels that generally have good vetalation, this place falls short big time!

We love eating at the Aqua Caliente Steakhouse as much as we love eating at the Steakhouse at their sister casino, the Spa. We had Carlos as our server and started with a martini. We asked Carlos if we could have our food spaced out as we were in no rush and had to take an early time for dinner. He timed everything perfectly. We started with Lobster Bisque and the Ahi Poke Tuna. Both really delicious. The soup was really hot! For our dinners, we had the Sea Bass and my partner had the Calamari. Again, both so good. We also had wine with dinner. This restaurant never disappoints.
