We were here for the second time to celebrate my mom's birthday. We stayed overnight at the casino and had dinner at the Rustic Kitchen. The spring rolls and rice balls were excellent as were the stuffed chicken and the short ribs just to name a few. This is a great restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. We were given a round table like I had requested for our group of seven. Great for a special occasion. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Everything was perfect from start to finish. Absolutely loved the Caesar salad. Both my fiancé and I had the 12 oz NY strip as our entree and both were cooked to our specifications. Can't wait to dine here again.

Have been here many times and we are never disappointed. The food was excellent as always and our server was very pleasant and did not rush us at all. This remains our go-to restaurant when we are in Wilkes Barre.

Hit or miss, lately MISS. Our meals were served 1 hour and 10 minutes after we ordered. Two tables near us ordered well after we did and were finished eating before we got served. Two of the four meals were just warm, not hot. Worst part of it was we were at Rustic Kitchen the day before for lunch and the exact same thing happened. Kitchen management(chef) needs to reevaluate how they are prioritizing. The manager and waiter could not provide an explanation, just an apology.

We really like this restaurant. We frequent it almost every time we are in town or at the casino. Many good things to say about the food, waitstaff, kitchen, etc. My girlfriend and myself have just one suggestion which I hope someone will consider and change. We always order a bottle or two of red wine. The temperature is out of the cooler at 52 degrees and served. Terrible way to drink a good red wine. No aroma, no body, no flavor when it's cold. We actually toast our glass of wine over the candle in the middle of the table to warm it up. Please contemplate a way of making it warmer before serving. Other than that one thing the place is wonderful especially the décor. Striking.

Good food, served hot. Service was a little slow.; our reservation was at 8 pm and restaurant cleared out during times we were there.
There are choices to suit my vegetarian 20 year old son as well as for those who enjoy seafood and meat. I had baked shrimp w stuffed crab, hubby had short rib Raghu pasta, son had rigatoni. The Caesar salad was in baked Parmesan bowl and had anchovies on the side as my hubby had requested and was fresh and tasty.
There was a nice focaccia with sauce brought warm to the table.
Didn't know it was part of Mohegan Sun casino until we got to the address. This would be good to know for those of us with kids. We re not gamblers.
Also when I approached hostess stand, there were 3 ladies there and the greeting could have been a little more warmer/friendly.
The ambiance and decor or restaurant was very nice.
I would recommend this restaurant to others.

We came to this restaurant for my daughter's birthday. I made sure to mention the special occasion on my reservation however, I had to remind the waitress about it at the end of our meal. She brought a plate of dessert for her which was nice butI was shocked to see that I was charged $9.00 for the dessert! Wow that is the first time I had to pay or a birthday treat from a restaurant! Very dissapointed about that. If I was going to be charged I would have asked for a dessert menu so that my daughter could have selected her own special treat.
