Nugget Casino Resort - The Steakhouse Grill Ratings and Reviews
Made Reservations for Valentines Day, Feb. 14, 2017. Overall pretty disappointed with the food and service, the only thing I can say in their defense was that it was Valentines Day and they were very busy, but clearly not prepared to handle the volume that is predictable and customary on Valentines Day. The wait staff was polite and courteous, they tried to resolve issues, but failed. Examples, Ordered three different steaks, all medium. Two were bloody, not medium pink, one diner consumed the steak, the other was sent back. It took 10 minutes for someone to check on us and try to re-cook the steak and 20 minutes to get the steak back, No exaggeration, everyone was done with dinner by the time this was fixed. We were charged for 2 bottles of wine but only ordered/consumed one, this was fixed. The couple sitting next to us ordered a bottle of wine and completely finished it prior to their dinner salads even arriving 30-40 minutes, they got up and left.
Went for daughters 21st birthday (which is on Valentine's Day). We were a party of ten with six being children (ages ranging from 3-14). The staff was very accommodating. Didn't act like they were above having children in their restaurant. They made sure we had what we needed during the night. The food was good. Nice choices for appetizers.
Due to the fact that John Ascuaga has an "in" with the Basque and Rancher communities the quality of the steaks and lamb chops is incredibly good. Also, the lobster is the best in town. I wouldn't call this place the "trendy" place to go but I would call this restaurant the best value for the superb quality that we have in Reno/Sparks. It is located in Sparks so your Yelp searches may not bring it up even though it is just 5 minutes from Reno. I recommend this place if you want to talk quietly with family or your romantic partner.
Ask for Sandy, she will give you superb service.
Caveat: We went early on a weekday and the restaurant was nearly empty, however as our meal progressed it started to fill up.
Our waiter was very entertaining and attentive. He had difficulty reaching the whole table so we participated in the placement of dishes on the table, lol.
The sommelier was outstanding and a great pleasure to talk to... so much in fact that we made a reservation for a special wine pairing dinner a month out!
The chef was also great to interact with and we learned that the restaurant was undergoing some menu alterations in the very near future.
Atmosphere normal for casino restaurant, not secluded but we had a table near the front... the noise was a touch high for intimate dining.
My wife is temporarily disabled and they accommodated the wheelchair with aplomb.
Food. Delicious, interesting and well presented. Made allowances for gluten-free diners that were not bland and they provided gluten free bread for the table.
Not up to par.Sat us in cramped aisle table until we asked to move to a booth. Food was average . Wedge salad had one cherry tomate and a teaspoon of avocado. Lamb shank very dry. Husbands bison steak was delicious. I would order steak next time. Too packed for early New Years Eve dinner.
Went there for New Year's Eve dinner. I had my doubts as the last 2 times we went there (once in 2014 and once in 2015) the food and service were subpar from what it used to be prior to those years. Anyway, the ladies had lobster and we guys had the porterhouse steak. Everyone thought the food was great as was the service provided by Matthew.
We will definitely try the Nugget Steakhouse again.
My fish was over cooked I send it back 2 and still was overcooked. Our waitress was awesome and the atmosphere was great I would recommend this to all my friends but just don't eat the seafood. I did spend a lot for our meal and expected more from our meal
Nugget Steakhouse is usually quite excellent. We went there on Thanksgiving and my soup and main course were tepid temperature though the bowl and plate were hot. The turkey and dressing were roll style which I did not expect, covered with gravy. The dessert was quite good. I expected an excellent special turkey dinner but did not get it. My husband doesn't like a fuss so I said nothing. We were there at 3 pm and were the second party seated for the day. Our drinks were initially forgotten. Not impressive for a Holiday. Won't go there again for such an occasion.
Food was good. My lobster was a bit undercooked. Filet was wonderful. Escargot was wonderful. Service adequate but not personal. When we arrived, the greeter did not seem to have our reservation. After giving him my name, he said he would be right back. When he returned, he was polite, but not welcoming. Our server was kind, but telling him my friend and I were celebrating her retirement he just smiled and hurried off. He didn't seem to care it was a special occasion for her. I couldn't help notice the table next to us got a visit from the head waiter or Maitre D and the chef, but our server didn't even offer anything - even a congratulations to my friend. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone but romantic couples.
Food was Great, Filet melted in the mouth and Caprese salad was delightful. Wine choices were great, Service on the other hand was a little lack luster. Our server didn't look us in the eye, didn't follow up with how our drink were, didn't offer additional bread or butter when we asked for more bread.
We used to dine here regularly until the new owners changed the restaurant menu. It has been tweaked but some stuff has been kept. Overall quality is down from where it used to be and none of the old wait staff is around anymore (unless they were working other nights than Saturday). We will probably not return.
I noticed that when we got our rolls we only got one kind and than I noticed that when I got my onion soup it wasn't in the onion. The waiter told they had a party of 50 they were catering to and where saving the onions and types of rolls for them. Our time was 6:00 so it wasn't like eating at eleven.
We went to a wine pairing dinner at the Nugget Steakhouse Grille. The food was amazing, the service like none other, always exceptional! The Matre'D, Art, is the hardest working person, warmly welcoming all who come to the restaurant, working with the Chefs, and Wineries to make sure all guests have the finest dining experience possible. I could not recommend any restaurant higher than The Nugget Steakhouse Grille. I have beautiful pictures of the food served, OpenTable App not allowing download. Believe me, the presentation was beautiful.
Food was fine. Waiter was nice but the service was terribly slow. We were having dinner before the show. We were seated at 6:00, took about 25 mins to get our wine, salads didn't come until after 7:00. Entrees about 7:30. Rushed thru entree, no time for coffee or dessert. For a restaurant in an established a hotel/casino they should be better organized and prepared for crowds on show nights.
The Steakhouse at the Nugget has always been a family favorite. Even under new ownership it still seems like Mr. Ascuaga is running things. This is truly a compliment. Food is excellent and served beautifully. Staff makes you feel like you are their most important guests of the evening. Well done!
I booked a reservation for eight and was seated. However, service was not as attentive as other restaurants. The food was decent but I expected a steakhouse to know a lot about cooking steaks. I ordered a fillet mingnon to be cooked medium rare turned out to be medium. In addition, the asparagus was over cooked and brown. Overall, the experience was not great due to slow service and the quality of the food and attention to detail.
The server was awesome. She was very attentive and kind. She did her job well. BUT.....The food not so good. I had a filet mignon. It was tough - cooked just right yes - but the meat was not worth the money. And my vegetable were a small portion. Compared to other restaurants it is over priced. Very over priced. My father in his mid 80's had to send his filet back because his was tough also. Then it would have taken 20 mins they said to cook a new one. We would have been done eating when he would have gotten it. So he ended getting a bowl of chowder from the seafood restaurant. He did like it. WHY IS THE FOOD PRICED SO HIGH. ? I will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone. I ate my steak but only because I was very hungry. VERY DISSAPOINTED. My friend and I have eaten there last year and were happy....what happened????? Please lower your prices to match the going price around town and get some better quality meat. Thank You
Every year during Hot August Nights we plan a dinner out at the Steak House. We always have between 6 - 10 people with us and we are accomodated.The wait staff is wonderful. You do not get rushed while you are there. The waiters do not "hover". The setting is elegant. The food is beautifully presented. The flaming dessert at the end is fabulous!!
Food value was good! Ordered 4 steak dinners, 2 New York's and Filet's and 1 Salmon.
Salmon was tender but lacked flavor. All 4 steak dinners were flavorless. They need to either add seasoning of some kind, even if it's just salt and pepper. Bread was very good.
