The only reason we took one star off for "Ambience " was because my partner told me "its hot as hell in here" like 3 times... lol. It was, indeed, warm. Maybe because they didnt want anyone ordering the soup? He wanted the bisque, but it was out and it didn't sound like the front end was getting great communication from back of the house. The hostess, our main server and the other server who came to our table through the meal were all great and I wish I could have tipped more than 50%. Maybe next time. We will be back. The food was great, leftovers were even eaten. Thanks for being open during such a difficult time for the service industry!

Lobster bisque was lukewarm and not very good. Wouldn’t order again. Our two entrees (lobster and filet) were delicious, as well as the au gratin potatoes. Service was a bit slow. Server never cleared our entree dinnerware, even though she was back to our table a few times when we were finished eating. Would like to see sides (salad and potato) included in entree price. We ate at the Redwood Inn at the California Hotel in Vegas a couple of times and had a steak special that was delicious. It was reasonably priced and included steak, salad, potato, and dessert. Our service was impeccable. We will definitely dine there again.

Went here for a special BIRTHDAY dinner. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The crab cake appetizer was very good. We ordered the short rib entree which came with mashed potatoes and carrots and the prime rib which camelone.

Great service from waitress and bartender. Very good, tangy dressing on the Caesar. The steak, shrimp side, mushrooms, and asparagus were all too salty to eat. Someone needs to get in charge of this usually excellent restaurant.

Would like to sub a baked potato instead of fries. No subbing was told so you have pay extra for every side

We both enjoyed the BBQ ribs, very good and service was outstanding. The only drawback was I ordered a dirty martini and the bartender was an amateur. You don't serve a martini 3/4 full and no shaker. Also the dirty was way too dirty. If i had ordered a beer or wine it would have probably been fine.

We have eaten at the Woodfire Grille many times. The food is always top quality.
The waitress was very attentive and was able to accommodate our request for potato croquettes which are available on some entrees but not as a stand alone item. They were very tasty! Lobster was cooked just right and NY Strip was very juicy and flavorful.

Highly recommend for a special occasion, or if you are just hungry for an excellent meal.

OurServer was not very experienced.. she was very nice, but must not have had the proper training..
We ordered cocktails and she thought you only served wine and Beer.. but we did receive our mixed drinks.
Food was delicious, as always..

The service and food were both excellent. They were quite busy the night I was there. The waitress was very prompt, friendly and professional.
The food came in very reasonable amount of time. I only wish that these type of establishment would offer at least one side with their main food items. Nice to see that they have added less expensive options like sandwiches to the menu.

Maybe a recommend. The food was good, but the service lacked. Poor attention to our table and service was slow. Biggest concern, my wife was served a filet, then told the sides would be delayed. Once came out five minutes later, and the second once she had completed her meal. A few tables, and one party in the restaurant, but not overaly busy. $200 for a meal for two, I expect a lot more.

We were disappointed. We have been there before and have enjoyed our food, but this time we were not that impressed. My husband ordered ribs - they didn't have any. Then he ordered shrimp with broccoli - had no broccoli. He got three shrimp. I ordered the special - the chicken was tough. Highly overpriced for what i got. Plus we were seated in a booth with no light above it - twilight zone!

We must have had a waitress that was very new. She made mistakes on our bills...twice. The prices are too high for this little community although I realize they hope to attract casino patrons from other areas. Most casinos, however, are known for their reasonable prices to bring people in who will then (hopefully) gamble a bit too. The monthly "special" was two medium-sized stuffed and deep-fried shrimp on about 1 cup of risotto...for $27. Nothing else except bread and butter. For that price they could have added a veggie. We are locals; we won't go back anytime soon.
