It wasn’t as good as previous experiences, due to the construction going on

Limited menu, no veggie burger for wife !
Reno pains I guess, not much compensation for customers

Noise level was too much only because there was a Celebration of Life going on and those attendees were standing around talking.
The menu was limited as well (kitchen under renovation) so I couldn’t order what I really wanted to try.

Have been to this lounge a few time and each time it is a fun filled evening with good food and music. Service can sometimes be a bit slow but understandable when it's standing room only.

New setup is awkward - comfortable bench seating faces out instead of towards stage. Food was just ok - kind of bland.

Waitress was professional and attentive. She make sure our drinks are always top up. There three to four people working in the open kitchen. However the food arrive very slowly. The buns were day old dry and not toasted. Hamburger not juicy or appealing. Both yam and potatoes fries been refried and looks dark and kinda room temperature. Food is way very priced for what you get.

It was a nice place to go. The band was great and the ambience was really neat with the casino right outside, etc. I found the drinks (bloody caesars) were a bit watered down and the person checking ID wouldn't let my friend in her 40s in as she only had one ID which was her driver's license which I found ridiculous as she was clearly of age. He had to get the manager to approve her entering the casino which took a good 20 minutes. Other than that, it was a good experience. I really like the smoking balconies.

we really enjoyed being able to hear each talk without and trouble, the location of our table was really private and nice. Service was really good not too intrusive, but efficient and there when we needed something. Prices are great spent less than expected and walked out very satisfied.

I was very disappointed with the South Beach salad...usually it is very good...but the lettuce was not cut in bit size pieces and it was dry...not enough dressing!

Although I made a reservation, the staff there walked back and forth towards the end of the bar, occasionally looking up to see if I left or not but still neglected me... until one brave young lady walked up and asked if she could help.. told her that we had reservations and she was seemingly apologetic..the pregnant waitress was very attentive and patient walst waiting for our order .. we have the coupon from the casino and thought why not take full advantage of the $20 limit and we would pay the excess only to be told that they had different conditions 🤨. Any case the food was good and hot and the service by all the ladies who stepped in to lend a hand to our waitress was nice to see..

Was very quiet as it was Christmas Eve.
Food was excellent and our server was lovely. Very accommodating and peppy.
The only complaint was that they were out of the Ravenswood Zinfandel i had ordered.
All in all a pleasant experience considering it was the first time not being with family for Christmas Eve. Then a bit of gambling. And a small win!

We ended up at Personas as we had originally wanted to go to Atlas for a quiet date night but it was booked up.. understanding that this was a holiday season, we said fine but having eaten at Personas before we were a little bit let down with the “ bar food menu”. I asked why I couldn’t ask for items at the Atlas to be served here and the waitress said something about non-competition which was kind of strange. For the most part Personas was empty so if I were the F & B manager, I would extend the Atlas concept over to Personas .. we wanted streaks but to only have a flank steak, the quality wasn’t there

Terrible. Was really looking forward to having a nice Christmas Eve dinner at the casino and it turned into a horrible meal. Steak was like a old boot. My chicken waffle sandwich fell all apart waffle was probably frozen. And the hamburger was boring as can be an tasted like the night before left over. Ruined Christmas Eve dinner. Prices are expensive for what u get. Would not recommend. Waitress seemed like she didn’t even want to be there. Rude.

I was appalled by the service at this restaurant. The server was fine during dinner service but disappeared for quite some time while we were waiting for our bills. She walked by and never asked if we needed anything or if we needed the bills. I consistently tried to find our server and she was no where to be found. One of the people at my table went to find her and the manager informed us she was on her smoke break. She finally came to give us our bills, my mom was paying with her MasterCard and after she had ripped the receipt from the machine and threw my mothers card back at her which was very rude and entirely uncalled for. I am left with a terrible taste in my mouth at this service, I will not be coming here again.
