Rustic Kitchen Bistro & Bar Ratings and Reviews
I haven't had this bad of a meal in a very long time. I has been ordered linguine with clam sauce, it came with six very small clams as a garnish according to the manager, there were no clams otherwise in the dish in the past it was not drain properly that means they linguine was swimming in tasteless water. I ordered feel calibrate is, I prefer to stay low-carb, but even though the menu did not state that the dish included potatoes, it was mostly potatoes. I was very disappointed. I will never go back here again, ever. EVER.
Was very disappointed. I ordered the chef special Parmesan crusted sea bass . When it finally arrives it was just a piece of fish with some herbs sprinkled on top , some gummy risotto and my hubbys veal Parmesan was thin as cardboard and dry and tough .
We waited almost an hour before we were served . The excuses from the manager and waiter was that the kitchen was very busy . Unacceptable excuse as we are long time bar and restaurant owners .
My entree was taken off .
Our good friends recommended Rustic Kitchen to us and have eaten many times and raved about it. Very disappointing.
Have been a regular customer for many years now and we have yet to be disappointed. The food is excellent, hot, and fresh, and served by the most attentive, friendly, and efficient waitstaff we have ever encountered. The hidden gem of this fine establishment in our opinion is the pastry chef. This lady does with cheesecake what the most brilliant artist does with paint and a canvas. We have had the pleasure of experiencing Strawberry Chocolate Fudge, Strawberry with Pretzel Crust, Butterfinger, Apple Crumb, and many more flavors we could have never imagined, but our all time favorite remains Orange Creamsicle. It has a whipped consistency and texture that has enslaved our palates since the day we met. If you want a great meal in a great atmosphere visit Kay and her staff at Rustic Kitchen. And please take our advice and save room for dessert.
As Always the Food & Service was Great
Wife had the Scallops & I the Ribeye.
Did Easter Early(12:00).Was seated right off.Rustic started filling up fast.
The Ham for a Special sounded good.
Only Negative, Wine still alittle Pricey for the serving.
Will be back!!!
I ordered the lobster and shrimp diablo and while it was very tasty, I found only one piece of lobster and four shrimp. There were little tidbits of what I thought came from the claw interspersed, but I found that it was rather pricey at $30 for so little seafood.
We have dinner at the Rustic Kitchen every time we visit Wilkes Barre, about six times a year. The food is always excellent, as is the service. The servers are very attentive and the manager always makes a point to speak with the customers to be sure everything is satisfactory. This visit our server was Frank. He was great, and even though it was busy, he repeatedly stopped at our table to be sure we had everything we needed.
Looking forward to our next visit in two weeks.
The menu has a ton of seafood options in addition to handmade pastas, pizzas, and steaks. We had dinner there on a Tuesday night so it wasn't too crowded, but the service was a bit slow and the waitstaff seemed to disappear. There were often times throughout our meal that I would look around the dining room with not a single employee to be found! The food, however, was delicious and flavorful - enough to make up for the lack of service. They also had seasonal specials in addition to their regular menu which satisfied exactly what I was craving. Next time I need to save room for dessert!
Overall dining at Rustic Kitchen was an excellent experience. I had the stuffed shrimp with crabmeat served with potatoes and green beans. Although the green beans were a bit sparse, the stuffed shrimp was some of the best I have ever enjoyed. Ambiance was also nice as the restaurant was fairly busy yet the noise level was not intrusive to normal conversation.
Although the waitress was nice and friendly. Our meal took almost an hour to be served and just to get a beer refill was 15 minutes.
When asked if you would like cheese or pepper on meal, the waitress doesn't have it with her. Had to go back and the was an additional 5 mins.
For the price, not worth the meal
The Rustic Kitchen located in the Mohegan Sun Casino is an awesome stop for your dining pleasure. A super friendly staff, efficient wait staff and superb atmosphere make this a great stop for any occasion. Whether your enjoying a flatbread, pizza or a full course meal - you will not be disappointed. A great wine bar, opportunity to participate in the live cooking show offered on select nights or cocktail after a hard day at the office make this an attractive stop. For those with a sweet tooth the homemade cheesecake (selection changes every day) is the perfect end to the day.
