The service was good, and the environment was nice, but make reservations ahead of time as it is very busy early evening. The hosts seemed a bit overwhelmed, but it was completely understandable. We put our names down and gambled during our 2 hour wait. Luckily there isn't a shortage of things to do here, so the time went by... More

We went to The Bistro on Valentine's without a reservation. They were busy like everywhere else, but when I asked the Manager, Terry, about recommending another restaurant within the Fantasy Springs Casino she reviewed the seating chart and offered us a table after a reasonable wait. The food was prepared perfectly and both my husband's entree' (short ribs) and my... More

The restaurant was packed when we dined. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. My steak was cooked perfectly and the portions were generous.

We went from having plenty of time before the show to be time pressured. We ordered a Hot sake to come with our... More

Yes, it will cost you and your partner or pal a chunk to eat here, but it's totally worth every dime you spend. We started with nice specialty drinks, accompanied by crusty bread with oil and vinegar; split a lovely wedge salad at no extra charge for splitting; friend got braised short ribs that were superb; I got fabulous scallop...

My wife and I joined 3 other couples for dinner @ Bistro last night. Two of the couples had been there before and had raved about the Kobe beef cheeseburger, but we were looking for something more upscale. We all ordered drinks and starters and after some delay the drinks were served. Some time later, our friends were given their... More
