My wife and I pooh-poohed Atlantic City until a few years ago, when, on a lark, we decided to try a trip to the Borgata. We didn't expect much, but we found it fun and went back a number of times.
When Revel opened, we thought we'd give it a try.
I guess we are in their original idea of a target market.- upper middle class,non-smoking, slightly older folks from the New York or Philadelphia Metro Areas who would like a resort rather than just a casino environment. Maybe that model doesn't work...not enough of us, or not enough non-casino spending.
Our experiences here have been quite good.
It;s a beautiful property. Airy, bright. Clean and spacious. Open to the beach and sky. The rooms are wonderful. We have stayed there six times in the last year. Standard rooms are great. We have been upgraded to suites twice...they are simply spectacular.
For the most part, we like the premium restaurants. We tried Azure, the Mediterranean place on our first visit. It was good. It wasn't open on our second visit, so we tried American Cut, their steak house. It was great. The next try at American Cut was dreadful. How can a steakhouse get something so simple so bad? A steak ordered medium rare came out raw the first time, and when it was sent back, came out burned but still raw in the middle. Guys, you are a steak house. Get it right!
Since then, we've gone to the tapas restaurant, Amada. We've had great meals, and some just good. Much seems to depend on your server.
I hope this place makes it.
