Cin City - Miami Valley Gaming Ratings and Reviews
We arrived a half hour earlier than our reservation. We were seated nearly immediately and ordered food shortly thereafter. Then we were on our own. We had to flag down a waitress just to get some bread . Nearly 45 minutes and we got our waitress and asked if our food would be ready soon. Shortly thereafter, she brought our food out, stating it had been up for quite some time and didn't know why. YES, IT WAS VERY COLD. We informed her immediately it was cold. About 3 minutes later, she returned to get the cold food and send it back. Another 5 or so minutes, and new plates arrived. We sat nearly one hour before we finally got to eat. You be the judge if this is worth risking your night out.
Highly recommend. We went for the seafood ordering the pistachio crusted salmon and grouper with dijonasse. Both dishes were prepared perfectly. Our server Sharon took our dining experience to the next level. She was very knowledgeable pairing wine and was attentive throughout our meal. Overall an excellent experience!
We chose to try their Thursday Night burger special - the service was slow to begin with and only got worse. Their special 'hand made' shakes, while tasty took over 15 minutes to arrive to our table and then were a mess, overflowing the sides of the glass. The burgers were tasty but it should not take an hour and 15 minutes to eat burgers and fries at a casino. We've tried their fine dining, we have done their burgers (twice) and eaten at their buffet for 2 Sunday brunch and one dinner. Each time we have left really unhappy and wonder why we bothered. Catch a burger a Culvers or a dog at one of the local chili places instead.
We very much enjoyed our waiter (I believe he was the bartender) Great waiter!
We asked for a booth but was seated at a table for two----which was very small considering we ordered crab legs and of course our entre-----we had to place the condiments on the floor under our table to make room and had to stack the bread plates and other plates to make room---very unacceptable!
I have an ELITE card and have had one from the beginning of your opening------We eat at Cin City regularly and usually the accommodations are perfect---we always prefer and request a booth but since I did an Open Table I am told I have t put it down with the comments-----will do! Still find it unacceptable!
It's listed as a fine dining restaurant yet it doesn't feel like a fine dining experience. There were condiments on the table! Took a while to get our server - just asked for our order. Really no other talk. People were coming in in jeans and t-shirts - we were way overdressed. My husband won a gift card through a golf outing, that's what prompted us to go there. We have no reason to go back again.
We were very impressed with Cin City. Three people had different seafood choices and one had a seasonal menu choice. All of the food was delicious. The service was good without being overbearing. Beer recommendations from the waiter were great. We also tried two dessert selections -crème burlee and lemon cake-and both were out of this world. The décor was very nice also.
This restaurant is inside Miami Valley casino. My wife and I went there for the first time and it was very nice and elegant. The food was outstanding and the ambience was very nice as well. The service was top notch as well. High recommend for special occasions or get together with friends.
Best steaks we have had in a long time. Steaks were big enough for two meals. Took plenty home for Sunday brunch!
Our server, Teresa was outstanding! Made reservations on line, and walked right in at 6:45 P.M. on a Saturday night!!! The casino was packed!
We will be back for sure!
Love the look of this restaurant would love to be able to purchase the chairs but beside that the food is very good I had a summer special Halibut in a broth with peas two ways and it was amazing Mushroom Risotto is also very good. Was nor a fan of my Malbec wine not a brand I like.
Cin City is neat, clean and nice place! Foods are good! One problem is that hearing person as Dave can't hear the speaker from outside of Cin City. We love Cin City and our best waitress SHARON!!! NEXT RESTAURANT BUFFET IS THE WORST EVERYDAY! Their foods are cold, salty, sometimes they made us sick.
The food was quite good. The decor is understated, modern, elegant. BE AWARE that on weekends, you may not be seated if you did not reserve ahead. Our first time in, we were turned away. Our second try, we had a coupon on our phone and it took nearly 45 minutes for the casino to figure out what to do .... bring a PRINTED copy or your coupon may not be honored. The restaurant manager was not helpful. The customer service/club desk was very accommodating , helpful and apologetic....problem solved.
Many thanks to Sharon, our experienced, friendly and attentive server. She covered-over the earlier problems with excellent service and menu advice. We will be sure to ask for her the next time!!!
Soup was good, bread outstanding, we have eaten there a few times
Upon entering with a reservation, we were promptly told that the booths were only for VIP customers only.. There were several open that no one ever sat in..
We ordered the Filet but it was over cooked
And tough..told waitress see acted like she did not hear us..
We decided that the place
Was just going down hill ... Soup was good, shrimp was good
Appearance seems upscale. They are trying to give this restaurant an ambiance but it misses the mark. Hostess had issues with our OpenTable reservations, server was good but service itself was not to the caliber that warrants a Tonys of Cincinnati, Morton's nor Rubys. Missing or non replaced utensils between courses, empty glasses kept on table but kept bringing soda refills. Just not the level I expected. Not an apparent dress code. Had on a casual suit, my date a casual late night dress, folks two tables down in a near empty place were wearing camouflage and John Deere hats. Nothing wrong with that but not appropriate in this atmosphere . Food was actually very good. Timing of courses were good. The establishment needs to tweak a lot or it will not be in biz long. Hire a good chef, possibly a sous chef from another steak house, and let them run with a menu. STaff training from front of house to servers need to be updated on service procedures. I will give it 3 months and try again
I was really looking forward to dining at Cin City but was disappointed in the experience. The most disturbing thing was that they left the doors open so that you could hear the blaring music from the casino while you were trying to enjoy a higher class meal. The decore is beautiful. The Fish was overly seasoned. Service was good.
We went to Cin city on vday. We waited 20 minutes for a server to come to our table (we had reservations). Then, there were only 4 items to choose from on their special menu with no substitutions. We were made very clear that no substitutions was allowed. Plus, we went there for the prime rib and couldn't get it. My husband doesn't eat green vegetables so we were sol. We had to ask for bread and refills. We spent over $200 and was very disappointed in the service and options.
The food was awful! The portions were small, the server noticed I did not eat any of my food, but yet didn't ask me if I wanted anything else. The server was great in the beginning but as soon as we ordered she was barely at our table. The manager could have cared less about our dissatisfaction. $100 wasted! Next time we will get a burger from the other restaurant in the casino. We should have known but the other reviews not to go here.
My wife and I dined at Cin City on a Saturday evening. Service was good. My dinner (prime rib) was cooked well.It wasnt the best cut of meat but it satisfied. My wife had the pasta chicken special and it was nearly inedible. It was extremely sweet and not worth any price let alone what we paid. Bread was cold. Overall we were underwhelmed.
The filet was very good, side dishes were good, size of the dish was mediocre. It is very expensive for the amount of food the only way I go back is if I had a large gift certificate or a lot of comps. If I want to spend $60 or more a piece I'd likego to a different steakhouse in the city with better ambience.
We have dined here on several occasions and the food has always been great however my one major complaint is that the last 2 times we have requested a booth when making our reservations- at least a week in advance and we have yet to get to sit in one. Tonight- the rude guy at the door (the manager) barely made eye contact with us and when he went to seat us took us to a small table right behind the check in desk. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and we're looking for a semi romantic dining experience instead we ended up in a very high traffic noisy location. I politely asked if we could have a booth like I requested in my reservation and he abruptly said no they didn't have any servers available. I explained why I wanted one and had requested one and he said sorry nothing I can do about it. On the positive side- we did have Kevin who was a good server. The food was good it was just not the ambiance we were hoping for. I don't think I will be going there again when I am looking for a nice, semi private setting. I could maybe understand if they were completely full but they weren't in fact half the tables were empty and they turned away at least 2 couples while we were there- this was easy to see and hear since we sat right behind the check in counter- very romantic!
We have been there several times. We also request Kevin as our server. Great service and goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. Crab legs are excellent and sides are great. My husband loves the lobster macaroni and cheese. great place to have a group of friends gather. Food is better than any casino restaurant around and the steaks are just as good as Ruby's.
Suggest Cater to special events when restaurant in "off-time". Great private dining for bachelor/bachelorette party, "Girls Nite Only", small company functions. Offer special items, not regular menu (such was at beer pairing-perfect foods and thanks to the chef's). Switch up the menu and notify people ahead of a"new item coming".
Took my in-laws to Cin City at Miami Valley Gaming for a nice dinner. We were looking for steaks and there aren't many high end steak houses in the Lebanon/Monroe area. This was only 15 minutes from my ho0use and had great atmosphere and very good steaks! My MIL had the maple glazed salmon and it was perfectly done and the asparagus was crispy and delicious! My steak was very flavorful as was my FIL. Altogether a great meal at a decent price - it is not cheap, but I've paid more for food that wasn't nearly as good.
Third time I've eaten there. First time service was great, but it seemed like the crab cakes are frozen. For $16 for 2 little crab cakes you would think they would be fresh & the rolls were stale. Second time we ate there service & food was great. This last time the food was good but we had the absolute worst service. Our waitress kept complaining they were busy yet they did not look that busy. I did notice several servers really doing nothing but our waitress seemed like she was taking care of most of the tables. That being said they weren't that crowded though I'm sure there was a steady flow of people all night because it was a night when the casino gave away a car. it took a while for our order to be taken. We were never offered refills on our drinks I managed to catch her walking bye and asked for one. You would've thought she would've brought the person I was with a drink also but did not. When we were finished eating it took over 15 minutes for the waitress to come ask if we were finished if we wanted the check. Then it took an additional 25 minutes or so to get the check. While we waited for the check we seen the waitress cleaning tables, taking drink orders, chatting with people and disappear to the back a couple times. Finally when she brought it she finished the night by complaint more about being busy and being scatter brained. We also seen another waitress refuse to wait on a table that was being seated. If Cin City is going to charge those prices they need better help or more help or something because that totally turned us off of their restaurant. I also talked to other people who have complained about the service there as well.
They offer a great value on their filet mignon, the only downside is that it is nearly tasteless..... It does have some taste, but only because it is overly burnt/charged on the outside and taste horrible. My fiance and I both pretty much had to filet the filet and only eat the center, to avoid the horrid burntNess.
But the restaurant and some of the staff were nice. The prices would've been amazing, because $35 for a filet with a side is a deal...... But a tasteless burnt filet really isn't worth anything.
I brought my parents in with me on this Friday and had even pre selected my waitress who has given me good service before..... But this day was HORRIBLE our appetizer came out 2 minutes before our food which took 25+ minutes for 3 burgers (which were very dry and mine came out with the onion straws that werent supposed to be on there), then it took FOREVER to cash out I never saw the Manager or even received a formal apology ...... I'm not positive if I will go back in here again.
Wife had Sea Bass that was very good and I ordered filet that was equally as good. Sides are definitely big enough for two so don't over spend there. Before dinner cocktail was very stingy. Wine with dinner, Erath Pinot Noir was delicious and a more generous portion. After dinner had fun playing the horses and hit the slots, won enough to pay for one of the dinners! A great evening.
normally great food and service, not this time !!! didn't get water or bread for 25 minutes. waited 35 minutes for wine after ordering it, that didn't happen until i flagged the manager down. our food was really late and wasn't right! , no offer from management to compensate us in anyway.not impressed this time at all.
My wife and I really enjoyed our evening here. We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Food was excellent our waitress was awesome and on top of things. Pricy? Yes but well worth it. Very nice dining room and the overall scene is very relaxing. I definitely recommend going here.
