Like most, the only reason we came to this restaurant is because of the $70 off coupon we actually got from expedia.
Last night we got to the dark restaurant, and it was nicely decorated with nice music playing. The place looks nice, thats about it. We were greeted by a hostess on the phone which is fine, but then the manager comes by and says he`ll find us a table right away.(We were patiently waiting, I`ve worked in restaurants so I totally understand). The the hostess got off the phone and we followed her to a table, only to pass the manager who gave us a look like "oh no I forgot about them"
We got to our table and handed our waiter our voucher. He had nooooo idea what it was or what he had to do with it. He started asking us then the hostess then I guess someone who actually knew about it (reading these reviews after I see most people sued the voucher so shouldn't all staff know about it by now)
The prices are ridiculous. My boyfriend is a butcher so he loves a good steak. Usually we go to the keg(my fave), canyon creek, or wildfire, a local niagara steak house. After ordering my $15 cocktail, and waiting 20mins for it to be delivered, we both decided to just order the stuffed chicken as prices were so high and Im not a red meat eater anyways.
We got our "stuffed" chicken about 35+mins later. The piping hot plates sizzled and that was cool but thats about it. Chicken had nothing in it, it looked like it had come from swiss chalet and was an okay sized portion. Now onto the shared $10 mashed potatoes. What a rip off! Any other steak house you go to, you get the same portion for one person included in their price. Seriously, this one shared portion was smaller than a single portion at the keg.
I let my boyfriend eat almost half of my chicken and most of the potatoes cause hes a big muscle guy and I knew he was not going to be full after this meal. He even ate the second tiny loaf of bread to himself and still wasn't full. And for the amount we paid, thats ridiculous.
As for paying, we asked for our bill and got it quickly actually, however there was a mistake on it. Our $70 voucher had only been used to take $60 and change off. I was so fed up with this place I didn't want to argue about $10 and just wanted to get the heck out of there asap. We paid and left and only the hostess said goodbye to us on our way out.
Our whole walk back to the room, we talked about how this restaurant isn't going to last long. We're locals and we've seen some restaurants come and go in this area and this is one that sure wont last. Go any where else but here. One reviewer said if you can afford it go here? Well even if you have money to pay these absurd prices, venture off into the casino and eat in the steakhouses there, sooo much better.
