In addition, David Burke Prime will offer thousands of bottles of premium wine from around the world.

“Excellent Food in a beautiful restaurant, but pricey”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Down at Foxwoods for a birthday get together. Reservation was scheduled perfectly. Everyone loved their drinks, martinis, wine and beers. Dinner is a la carte, and sides are $10 and up. From pork to Filets, everyone loved the food and the preparation. We were not hurried and were seated well beyond the door which was great since we were there for 2 hours eating, kibitzing and laughing it up with the birthday guy. Main dishes of the beef was $38-48 plus the sides.

I know, what do you expect when at a casino/hotel setting? But, for the price paid, they could include the side dishes....

“Manager James is awful, rude, pompous”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

It's really too bad, the food and service was top notch here. We have been here before to celebrate a birthday and we returned for another birthday that was the weekend of Christmas. My sister had an issue with her steak being over done. She never sends anything back whenever we go out. The server happily brought the steak back and the Manager JAMES returned with a new one. Initially it was ordered medium and was received at almost well done. The new steak arrived quickly and was pretty much rare. She requested that it be cooked more and James responded by saying that it was a perfect medium rare. He did bring it back to fix it to her liking but you could tell that he was annoyed. He did not seem at all sincere in his apology and had a smug look on his face that really turned us off. The server was extremely apologetic and she was very nice and she seemed to care much more about our experience than he did. Needless to say we won't be returning as long as he's running that restaurant and for that reason and that reason only.

“It was great”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Came here with another couple on December 30th. We knew the prices were high but were pleasantly surprised to see that they had $49 prix fix menu and it was lobster night which offered another $35 lobster menu. I thought they had a good selection of choices for the fixed menus. The popovers were excellent...we all loved them. My husband and friend got the bacon appetizer and it was excellent but very rich, I had the lobster dumplings (wonderful) and the last member had the onion soup...she said it was very good. For entrees we had the double cut pork chop, prime rib, roasted lobster and short ribs. It was decided that the pork chop was the best, excellent flavor. Desserts were great and the cotton candy with the check was a nice surprise. Atmosphere was good and service was attentive but not smothering.
