Favorites at Belterra Park Gaming & Entertainment Center Ratings and Reviews

Overall, one of the worst meals I've had in Cincinnati; especially for the price 1. The waitstaff was inexperienced and conducted our encounter as if their only goal was to get us to the gambling floor. We asked the waitstaff 4 times for bread. After we finished our dinners, there was no offer of dessert, coffee or an after dinner drink. 2. The food was poorly prepared and appeared to have set under a heat lamp waiting for the waitstaff to serve the meals. Seafood Alfredo with a marinara sauce...are you joking? The seating was at a table near an exit to a smoking area. Casino customers were in and out of this door all night. They left the door open and our table was like being in a smoking area...ugh! I do not see how this restaurant stays open considering it is the worst restaurant service I've seen in this town. This was my 3rd and last trip to this place...it was an over able terrible experience.
Will be back
Overall the food was really good. The reason I only gave it 3 stars was I was really looking forward to the Italian Wedding Soup, but when I got it the broth was just luke warm which was a little disappointing, but it didn't ruin my meal and I've had it before so I'm sure there was just some kind of mix up in the kitchen so I'll definitely get it again. If you can go there for a late lunch or early dinner and the weather is nice the patio is a cool place to sit when the races are going on. It had been a while since I've been there and they've added some new items to their menu that I will be back to try.
Always good,been there several times,our server(Jill) outstanding,everyone friendly and courteous.
Favorites is our Favorite!
We've been eating at this restaurant since it opened and we love it. Our dinner the other day was very good! We always order the same thing since it's so good! Start off with the shrimp cocktail and then caesar salad. Enough to split. Then we order they NY Strip and baked potato. Also enough to split. Delicious Meal, look forward to our next visit. Our server Jill is the Best!
The filet mignon and lasagna was excellent. Service superb. I love the atmosphere.
Always a winner!
I can count on Favorites for an excellent steak and great sides. Shrimp cocktail is beyond excellent! Love this place!
Great food and atmosphere but..
This is the first time I could really say I was not happy with the service at this restaurant. Usually everyone is very attentive but on this particular occasion the service was awful! We had to ask someone for our waiter, the manager had to get us refills, and they gave us boxes that we had to fill ourselves. I was less then pleased.

Took almost an hour to get our meal reason being I ask for well done
Great dinner, every time
We thoroughly enjoyed our special dinner. We had the seafood pasta and the lobster specials. Don't miss the mac and cheese with the lobster!
Incredible food, staff, and environment!
The wait staff was incredible and made the event truly memorable. They went the extra mile to make the night special for my family. The food was delicious with everyone leaving overstuffed from eating beyond being full due to the extraordinary taste of the food.
The meal was excellent.
The meal was excellent. We stuck with pasta rather than steak. My only complaint is that the lasagna was too spicy hot. I little heat is good. Too much is not. However, everything else--appetizers, service, the other entre--was great.
Favorites no more.
Poor, poor, service. The waiter was very inattentive, unaccomadating, forgetful, & allusive. The drinks were not served, or served improperly. The food was the only thing done right. A co-waitress saved the day with her great skills. But to little, too late.
service was great, food was as well
First time there and the experience exceeded our expectations. it was great spot.
It took over 45 min to get our food. Also I've ordered the 16oz.Ribeye for the 3rd or 4th time and it is a far cry from 16oz. Not that it's bad just not a 16oz.Ribeye. I think they need some work done in the kitchen. I will give them another chance but can't say I was happy.

Service and food were good. My ribeye was ordered medium-well but arrived rare and charred on one side. They did replace the steak and it was fine on the second attempt. Other than that the food was excellent.
We were having a great time until a Christmas party arrived and were loud and obnoxious.
the steak was very tasty, however it took a while to be served. by the time it arrived, it was luke warm and became cold by the time that i was half way done. those with me enjoyed their meals very much.
One out of three was good
I have eaten here three times in last few months and I must say the first time was great. The second time we ordered filet and was given ribeye, might I add after 58 minute wait for food. The macaroni and cheese I had the first visit was amazing , the second was very soupy and nowhere near the flavor. The third and final visit was correct food given, but We waited 30 minute to give order and another 40 minutes to get food. I would order a refill on drink only to wait 10 plus minutes. And finally the last visit we were placed at a table outside the kitchen, we were able to enjoy the normal kitchen noise along with a female yelling out orders all throughout our visit. It may be a casino, but for the cost and quality they claim it has been downhill since that first great dinner.
Steak it out
Steaks were excellant. Sides were good. Views of race track very nice. Service was very good.
This was our first visit to Favorites but it will not be our last. We had filet steaks, baked potatoe, asparagus, chopped salads and a bread basket. We were very impressed with the quality of food, the service was excellent and noise level low. Christina M was our server and she was very attentive. We ordered medium rare steaks and would have preferred a little less done but we will know next time. The manager did offer to replace our steaks but we were ok with not taking her up on her offer. All in all it was a very good experience.

Asked for medium steak, got well down. Steak was about 1/4 to one half inch thick, however very tasty. Too pricy for what I got. Not comparable to other fine steak houses. Potatoes and salad were fine.
Great view with a very wonderful wine list. Food was top notch and service was excellent. A very perfect experience. We will be back.
Food was excellent, view of the track, was great, too! Our server, Jill, was just perfect!
We have eaten there several times and have failed to get a bad steak. We have gotten the barrel cut filet with asparagus. It compares to Jeff Rubys and others.

Wife and I had a great time, sevice/food were very good. Was a delay in getting the flowers I pre-ordered to our table, not certain where the ball was dropped there. I called Favorites before hand to let them know they were coming. Want keep us from coming back though!
As always our food and service were very good
I always enjoy the dining and service in Favorites
Ridiculous amount of time to get served. ...
Ridiculous amount of time to get served. My friends steak was overdone. Must be some problem in the kitchen.
Lack of service after being seated
Our server had 3 tables in various locations seated at the same time. It was over 15 minutes before we were greeted and another 5 minutes before we could order a cocktail. We had reservations so we were expected. Management needs to step up and correct this problem.
The food was very good, but was pricey for the size of the serving. Two bites and the salad was almost gone,
Second time there and both time had to s ...
Second time there and both time had to sent steak back for being over cooked. Manager handled it poorly telling us we cut into it wrong. Watuer was good and friendly.
What a wonderful find
My husband and I had a great experience. The view is great with all the windows overlooking the track. My husband had the ribeye and I had the seabass special both were to die for. Our server Tyler was knowledgable and friendly. The manager, a young lady, came by and chatted for a minute. How she new it was our first time I'm not sure but it was a nice touch and we will definitely be back!
Wouldnt recommend going here. The amuse bouche was spinach and Parmesan, tasted like it was under the heat lamp for an hour. Caesar Salad was overdressed and the Bruschetta was stale. My 16 oz Boneless Ribeye was was cooked close (over) to order while my fiances was way overcooked(HAMMERED). The Spinach Gratin was watery and bland. Even the Mac and Cheese was dry and tasteless. Totally disappointed. PS, invest in some table clothes.
The prime steak was tender and cooked to perfection. I would recommend the mushrooms. My wife had the spaghetti and meatballs and the meatballs were to spicy for her to eat. The menu or waitress should warn you.
Becoming a Great Spot
Favorites has been growing into an excellent dining spot. The salads are just a little spicy but great flavor. The 8 oz filet minion was nicely caramelized, cooked just right at medium, no added flavors to take away from the steak. Breads at the table are delightful. Asparagus was delightful. Baked potato was large and cooked just right. Servers are always very eager to satisfy and loaded with attention to detail. Favorites may become a great place!
Reservation confirmed, but could not dine
Revieved a text from BP for a 2 for 50 dinner. Made the reservation online for 5:30. Got to the restraint and was told the special pricing was for the day before; even though the reservation was confirmed, we did not get the offer. I get hundreds of emails a day and thought by replying to the email on line, the offer was good. Boy... Was I mistaken. Was told that we should try the Marketplace, as it was more affordable..........
not yet a favorite
We eat out every night and travel all over the world so we are not new to fine dining. Favorites was slammed the night we were there and tables needed to be cleaned and the server was way too busy plus some patrons were being loud and demanding. Management needs to be more active and assist the patrons and workers more. Food was good but needs to have a better presentation to be an high end establishment. Tablecloths would be a nice touch as a bare table and cheap placemats do not match the menu prices. The view of the track is a nice scene.
I ordered the special bass. The first bite was ok. I had to use a knife to cut the second piece- it was not easy to cut- the fish was very cold on the inside. Waited 30/35 minutes for a new piece to arrive at the table.
Favorites is a winner!
In the world of gaming, food is often thought of as a good buffet. Favorites is an absolute pleasure from the staff to the last bite. High quality food, with the same attention to sides and accents as to the entrees, makes Favorites a place that we will return to as soon as possible.
It was not comfortable there were many open tables but we were put where there was to much foot traffic from staff no privacy.... steak was undercooked .... asparagus was lacking in qty and cold. just many variables
Nice Sunday Special
We went for dinner before a concert at Riverbend. You have to walk through the casino, a bit far for one of our diners, but we were not disappointed in the atmosphere or food. On Sunday night they have a dinner for two special for $50 which makes it very affordable then, but otherwise, the prices are up there. Service was spotty - they put all the wrong appetizers, entrees and desserts in front of the wrong diner. First beer for one diner was not beer at all, some kind of cider I suppose and the person who corrected the mistake seemed to not believe us. For the prices, I believe people expect a higher service standard. Pretty long between courses, especially dessert.
