We love the filet. It's cooked to perfection. The side items are large enough for 2 to share. We especially love the macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes and the iceberg wedge salad. The service is awesome. Very attentive!

The service and ambiance was excellent. The steak was very tasty but I had to send it back because it was 90% fat and was cooked medium rare. I had ordered medium well. They sent out a new steak which was perfectly cooked.

Typically Favorites has been very good. This particular night the food wasn't as good. Guessing it was because they were busy. Although that shouldn't change the quality of food. Out of 4 meals, two were good and two was fair. I've always ordered their seafood fettucini as it's been excellent in the past. This time it wasn't. Although will go back and try something different. Husband had steak diane, and said it was fabulous.

I had called earlier to find out if I could wear dress shorts because we were attending a concert at Riverbend later but was told "no". It turns out, there was practically nothing you couldn't wear. Unfortunately, the restaurant was packed with people who don't know how to behave at a fine dining restaurant (I assume also concert goers). They were screaming so loud we could not hear each other speak and were throwing food at each other!
Although our food was good, the service was abysmal. We ordered white wine which when they brought it to the table told us it needed to chill. The waiter never came back to open or fill the wine. We had to fill our own wine glasses throughout the evening and dirty plates were left on the table for far too long. I have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but would not recommend it when a large concert is happening at Riverbend the same night.

We ate here before a Riverbend concert. The location is nice, overlooking the track. The antipasti appetizer is ideal for splitting. The food is good, although my lasagna was overcooked. Our server was attentive and friendly, but he didn't know the answers to basic questions about some of the dishes. Overall, a nice place. We will be back.

I will start off with our server and the service was excellent and the food was also very good though the sides were just ok the mac-n- cheese wasn't a family size dish and the baked potato was one potato hard to share but the prime rib was excellent ,we were a table of 5 and it was so loud we were almost having to yell to hear each other talk not a very pleasant way to enjoy an anniversary/birthday dinner with family and friends,and dont expect to order a beer with your dinner they are a wine establishment I had to walk to the stadium to buy a beer but I was aloud to bring it back but again our server I believe her name was Jill was awesome she made what few negatives there were not important

Best service!!!! My steak was overlooked (it was thick so I understood) but my server insisted on sending out another filet which the chef brought out himself. This is a hidden gem in the casino and I was quite impressed.

Very enjoyable dinner. This was our first visit to Belterra Park Casino. The Favorites Restaurant was very nice with great menu choices. Our server Megan was very pleasant & made our dining experience very memorable. We really enjoyed the view from our table & would have liked to seen live racing to add to the evening. The next time I visit Belterra Park Casino I will make sure to reserve a table at Favorites when live racing is taking place.

We went celebrating a friend's birthday and we were not dissapointed! Great atmosphere, and the food was great!.. My steak was cooked perfectly.. The appetizers were awesome, especially the shrimp cocktail! I will definitely be back.

We arrived at 730 pm not served untill 10 pm, service horrible had to ask for everything down to the water and lemon...steak burnt to a crisp don't know why...saw our server trying to serve 2 salads to one table I suppose they were not their salads they refused them....those same salad were amazingly delivered to another table after the other quest breathed all over them...watched the whole Senerio..you don't reserve food that has been handle by other guest she thought she was being slick but I have a keen eye for that kinda service..while other table was being served their food their waiter continually bumping into my chair..Emma the water girl kept telling us excuses of how busy she was that's why she was late getting our water..didn't receive our bread and butter for and hour....then you heard loud laughing coming from kitchen area..unexceptable food, service, this is my 2 worst visit at this restaurant ...they need new workers and management at this facility.....

The most pleasant surprise in a dining discovery. The JUMBO shrimp cocktail was the best ever. I had the prime rib and it was 5 star, Wife had the chicken diner and it was spot on. Price is $50 to $100 for two. They have a great plate of spaghetti and meatballs for $15.
You are overlooking the horse track-thoroughbreds and the River bend music center. This night was Keith Urban for free. All you had to do was move onto the patio and you were at the concert.

As always, the food was incredible. New menu with the old favorites plus some new goodies- most notably pasta dishes. My only disappointment was the cheesecake. My friend and I both agreed that it tasted different than before- mainly lemony not the creamy, rich, ricotta flavor before. It came with a coolwhip type topping with whole blueberries instead of a fresh hommade whipped cream with mango and raspberry puree. In my opinion, Favorites had one of the best cheesecakes ever, but the current cheesecake is something I would expect to be served at a Waffle House. We always get cheesecake, but i would NOT order this again with the change they made. CHANGE IT BACK PLEASE!

Overall, one of the worst meals I've had in Cincinnati; especially for the price
- 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.
- 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.
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!
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.
