Favorites at Belterra Park Gaming & Entertainment Center Ratings and Reviews
I wasn't very happy that there was a young child on the outside deck and her parents was letting her climb the fence she about got to the top. If she would have fell over she would have been seriously injured. I was nervous the whole time. They wasn't even watching her Didn't even enjoy my Birthday dinner. I even said something to a worker and nothing was done. I love this place always a great date night. I always thought children where not allowed. That is was 21 and older guess I was wrong. And to top it off no Birthday cake for me.
I love going to Favorites, they are always glad to see you and treat you like you are the only one there. The salads are fresh and the steaks will melt in your mouth. I love the Steak Diana it is so good. The size of the side orders are huge. I would recommend this to anyone.
2nd Time dining here and it was a little less impressive this time. I was with my wife and two adult daughters, who ordered a bottle of wine, and I was the DD. The waiter was clearly having difficulty opening the bottle, and the wine ended up on me. No offer of a towel? He never really redeemed himself.
The food was good again this time, I had the Sausage Alfredo, which was tasty, and the wedge salad was huge. The salad and an appetizer would have been enough.
Seems every time I come here they have a little jazz band playing right next to me. I would suggest a table away from the window or at least a few tables away from the music.
We have a few "destination" restaurants in the Cincinnati/No. KY area that we trust for special occasions and Favorites will be our #1 choice from here on. Prior to this The Precinct was our main choice. The view was great, service was attentive and it was quiet. We did not need the jazz combo. We will use this restaurant for regular dining, not just special night s out. We have had several people ask us what it was like, so I assume they will try it also. WE also have eaten before in the Stadium Club and liked it also.
Celebrating Fathers day was our occasion. Wedge salads a little heavy on dressing. Would recommend serving on side. Steak and seasoning good. Prepared correctly. Mushrooms need some help on flavor. Chicken Parmesan was very good. The real problem was the Meatballs and spaghetti. The pasta was stuck together in a large sticky ball. Should have returned it but did not. Just not an overall great experience for us and probable not return except for drinks and live horse racing.
It was okay. Midweek, Thurs. . Place started filling up around 5:30 and service suffered noticeably at that point. Prime rib was good. Good wine choices. It is in a casino, so you don't have to worry about a dress code. If I was paying these prices(4 Star prices) in downtown Cinti., I would expect more...
This restaurant has improved menu and service over the years. The server prepared my husband' s steak Diane tableside....very impressive. My salmon was just a tad dry but very good. You have to get the kale and spinach au gratin!!!! It is tied for 1st place along with a Mac and Cheese from Brand Steakhouse at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. Favorites is one our favorite restaurants. Value is great here.
Had an occasion to take some friends out to favorites for dinner our waitress was great they were prompt. It is difficult to get ahold of the restaurant to ask questions before 4 o'clock .The Seabass was delicious and the steak was really good wish they had thin stem asparagus. Overall it was enjoyable!
You never know what to expect when you go to a restaurant in a "racino". Yes they have their very large buffet but Favorites is a very pleasant surprise. Beautiful view through floor to ceiling windows onto the race track. Menu is simple with the focus on steaks and classic Italian dishes and the quality of the food is quite good. We have eaten here several times now usually with the Italian entrees (although the steaks look very good also). Serving sizes are large...we each had the tasting size of the entree and that was almost too much. Wine list has a lot of variety from fairly inexpensive table wines to some premium (and high-priced) California wines with a few French and Italian in the mix. Service was excellent. She was attentive but not over-bearing, knowledgeable and friendly.
Went to Favorites on a Friday about 6pm with reservations. This was our 2nd visit. The first time we had steaks, this time we tried the pasta and wine. The lasagna, cavatelli, and 2 glasses of wine were excellent. The food was also a good value at $56 w/o the tip. The atmosphere is nice, not real loud. You could have a conversation without raising your voice. There was little noise from the casino. You have a view of the race track. Dress was casual to sport coat, to suits. We would go back to Favorites in the future.
We made last minute reservations for Valentines Day. Our server was super sweet. She was very knowledgeable about the wine list, informed us that portion sizes for the items we ordered were large when we were thinking about getting some sides, and was a great server. My water glass was always full. Everyone was very busy but I didn't feel like it affected their service or timeliness at all, they even apologized for things taking so long when I didn't think they needed to apologize. The Italian food was AMAZING. It is definitely one of my new favorite Cincinnati Italian restaurants now. The portions were giant. My boyfriend and I split the chicken parm and lasagna and we had a TON of leftovers... we each got another meal out of them. I thought the pricing was decent too. Great for a date night or special occasion. I thought the ambiance was the perfect level of dress, not too casual but not too fancy. I would totally recommend it!
I had the pork, very dry and bland, Martini salad was average. My partner got the chicken breast; it was OK, nothing special. Service was not good, slow and barely saw our waiter, had to flag him down when we needed something. WAY over priced for the food quality and service!!!!
Will not be back!
