1904 Steak House at River City Casino & Hotel Ratings and Reviews
It was a horrible experience. We were rushed it showed on Sunday that the restaurant closed at 10 on the website but it actually closed at 9. So we got there at 8:40 and we're told we had to order right away and then rushed to eat our food. The food was cold and we had to pay 135 for our food even when we asked to speak to a manger they said they were busy and that we would have to pay still and just call on Wednesday because they are closed Monday and Tuesday. I'm very disappointed and I will share my review. Horrible food and customer service
Seated in a booth. I had to squeeze in and the table was anchored to the floor and could not be moved. Never had this problem at another restaurant (a little over weight but not that bad). Requested a table and was moved. The service was ok. The onion soup was very salty along with the bread, steak and salad. The broccoli was over cooked. I had a chicken dish and it was somewhat dry and tough for chicken. My wife's medium steak was very rare. Overall the food was not very good for the price they were charging.
We were celebrating a birthday so were wanting a nice evening. The place is very nice and was a nice quiet place for a nice dinner. However we ordered oysters on the half shell for an appetizer and couldn't believe it when they were served as they were very tiny. They were $22 for a dozen. We had the scallops for our entrees and they were very good.
Also we had made reservations requesting a booth and that we were celebrating a birthday. When we get there the hostess asks if we have a reservation and we told her yes. She finds it on the computer and asks us if we have a seating preference (as there we not many people in the restaurant) and we said yes we wanted a booth so either that wasn't on their system or they didn't look and there was no mention of what we were celebrating.
Overall I would rate the facility fine, The appetizer very disappointing, the main course fine. All in all not nearly as good as expected for the price.
We both started with the lobster bisque, and it literally looked and smelled like fish guts. It had one piece of lobster in it that was flat; that's right...flat! I couldn't eat it. We went on to order the grouper, which came with butternut squash risotto and kale. The grouper was okay, but they put it on top of the risotto, which was mushy and greasy. We will never be returning to this restaurant. It was very overpriced for the value.
The food was excellent. The steak is aged and some of the best I've had. We ordered roasted asparagus and brussel sprouts as sides and they were very good. The restaurant is attached to the casino so the clientele was largely comped I think. Only a couple of tables had people dressed up. Four tables away from us was a guy talking so loud to the next table we could hear every word he said. The service was good but not necessarily fine dining service. The steaks made this trip worth our while.
This was our first time to visit the restaurant. We were impressed with the interior design.
A little disappointed that a salad was not included with our main course.
With a restaurant of this price range, a salad is a minimal expense.
We will return, but for us it is a place we will only visit occasionally
Took my wife for an early Valentines dinner. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. She had the Valentines dinner special. It was started off with huge shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque, followed by the entree of filet and lobster tail then dessert. Not quite sure what you cal it, but was 3 different small desserts. She said it was the best chocolate she has ever had.
I had lobster bisque followed by a grouper entree and a side of creamed spinach. Grouper was great. The creamed spinach is made fresh and is fabulous. I would definitely recommend 1904 to anyone that wants a fabulous meal. As I said, a little pricey, but well worth it.
1904 was way overpriced and extremely mediocre. The menu had a dismal selection. I lover flavorful food, but my ribeye has a charred like bark on the outside that overpowered what I considered a tough steak for $40. That price didn't include salad or potato. I've had better steaks at Applebee's. We had one drink a piece, and no appetizer. The bill for two was $148 before tip. No problem had the food been good. If you are mad at your money, and have a yearning for average food, this is your place.
When we were seated we told our server, Troy, of our upcoming show plans at 7 p.m. Great experience until near the end. we asked our server for a leftover box and the change from the bill as we were attending the 7 p.m. show of Rodney Carrington. It was nearing 7 p.m. to get change and the box! I decided to head to restroom and who did I encounter on way to restroom? Our server was showing another party to their table! Why couldn't he get our change and leftover box in a more timely fashion?
This is difficult for me to review. The food and staff were excellent and as a restaurant it is a wonderful place. However, as part of a casino complex getting to it required a trip through a smoke (cigarette) filled area. My wife has asthma and it took three hits of her emergency inhaler to calm her breathing. We won't (can't) go back, but not because of the restaurant itself.
In order to get to the dining room, one must pass through the lounge. The carry over noise from the lounge is disturbing for a quiet dinner. The lounge then has its patrons opening the door to go outside to smoke. The door opening makes it extremely cold in the dining room.
The filet mignon is always tender and flavorful.
