Tulalip Bay at Tulalip Resort Casino Ratings and Reviews

This restaurant has great food, but landed on my list of my top 5 bad service experiences. It was a Saturday night and we had reservations & had tickets to a show. It took them 12 minutes to seat us. It was as if it was opening night they were so disorganized. It took me asking 3 different staff members to get a glass of wine. It took my friend 2 different service staff to get a diet coke. Our waitress couldn't locate a wine menu for a good 10 minutes. AFTER we ordered she asked why we didn't order from the show menu (we were there for a show). She never even told us they had a show menu. They served us celery sorbet which is hands down the most disgusting dessert I have ever had. I had to repeatedly ask for new cutlery. Anyone good at their job knows to bring new cutlery after every course. I was embarrassed for this restaurant. I've been to dive bars that had better service. The food was actually good. The pairings were amateur, like someone cooked as a hobby not a profession. We left a generous tip in what I can only hope goes towards a uniform that actually fits and isn't 3 sizes too big. I really wanted this to be good. We are so used to Seattle and NYC restaurants, I had hope that somewhere not in a big city could be good. Do not eat here. Honestly, I wish I had gone to Olive Garden across the street first.

The service here was exemplary. We had a lot of attention from floor managers that was appreciated. Knowledge of wine list was excellent. Food was great too. I would go here again on a date. I do think there needs to be some improvements needed in the ventilation as the casino smoke does waffle in.

Ordered a 12 oz filet mignon medium rare. Waitress apologized that it was taking so long, explained it was a very thick cut. When it arrived the middle medium while the rest was well done. She took $20 off the bill to compensate as i didn't want to wait for a new one.

The food is OK, the service was great. It took too long to get our food. The Lobster ravioli was Luke warm, the asparagus was stringy and the prices are too high. There was nobody in the restaurant when we arrived at 5:30 and I do mean we were the only table, and it still took an hour to get our dinner. I think that is too long. There were only two other tables at 7:00 when we left on a Friday night, that says a lot about a restaurant. They need to rethink their business plan.

Very over priced for the quality. The lobster was pre-frozen as we're the prawns. The filet was just adequate. The first time I've been to a steakhouse that didn't offer baked potato, only mashed. My wife's rack of lamb was again just adequate. Our server was way too stuffy. I simply couldn't connect with her. Certainly the least impressive supposed high end steakhouse we've ever been to. Not even close to Ruth s Crists.
Arrived a few minutes before opening and ...
Arrived a few minutes before opening and was allowed to come in and be seated. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals and also the touches added to the experience. For example, small tastings and a small desert tasting at the end. We both had martinis which were outstanding with the meal. We are the types that like to take our time eating and was not rushed at all by the server. Overall outstanding visit.

Everything was perfect! From the greeting, appetizer, wine, pallet refresher :) to the food itself. They made our bday celebration extra special with prepared greetings in chocolate on a dessert plate. So thoughtful! I highly recommend!

The food was great. We chose the concert menu with the wine pairings. Our waitress on the other hand was not with it. She was all over the place. It took over 40 minutes after ordering to receive our salads. The restaurant isn't that big. So the rest of our meal was rushed, and that was unfortunate. The table next to us was disappointed with her service as well. We could over hear them commenting about her never coming back to take care of the bill.

We were there for the Diana Ross concert. So made reservations at Tulalip Bay for pre concert dinner. It started out pretty well. We were about 10 minutes early but we were seated right away. It went downhill from there. We ordered wine and let our server know it would be a few minutes before we would be ready to order. His good natured attitude quickly turned surly. I'm pretty sure he wanted to turn his table as fast as humanly possible. Our server seemed disappointed (re: angry) when we opted to split a salad before our main courses.
Main courses were delivered without a word from our server. Rack of lamb for me and Halibut for my GF.
Halibut was so dry, it was more like jerky.
Lamb was cooked perfectly but absolutely no seasoning, meaning no flavor. Fontina potatoes were tasty but a minimal portion.
All in all a pretty dismal experience for the amount of money spent. It was basically a fail in every way.
A fantastic experience
I took my husband here for his birthday dinner during our overnight trip to the Tulalip Casino resort. It was a pretty quiet evening in the restaurant as no events were taking place at the casino that weekend. We had such a great experience. We felt very taken care of by the staff and the food was exceptional. My husband ordered the sous vide steak. It was by far the best steak he's had in years. Much better than even the high end steakhouses in Seattle where we dine often, and at a much better value. At the end of our meal, the chefs graciously answered our questions and allowed us watch them firing some impressive steaks at the grill, and our server took us on a tour of their beautiful private dining room and wine cellar. We had an amazing night. Will definitely be coming back!
Always a relaxing delight at Tulalip Bay!
We had reservations for a party of 8, and they were very accommodating. Sadly, the butcher hadn't shown up that day (Easter) so they didn't have some of the menu items. Our main server, Alex, was knowledgable, charming and attentive. He recommended a wonderful wine to go with my lobster. The food was delicious overall, however there were a few bumps in the road. The brussels sprouts were tasty, but much too undercooked. It was difficult to chew them. My salad was missing the shaved parmesan cheese, which was promptly brought out when I mentioned it. We had an addition of prawns added to our order the last time we were there, and they were huge and succulent. I ordered them this time and they were medium size and not much different than most middle of the road seafood restaurants. I won't be getting those again. Also, and this is my fault, I didn't realize the gratuity was already included - I should have paid attention. I left an additional 100.00 as a tip. Live and learn - and a lucky day for Alex! We will definitely be patronizing Tulalip Bay again, as it's such a nice, relaxing little oasis amid the noise and smoke of the casino. Proud to have such treasure in our neighborhood!
Place has changed
The Tulalip Bay has really gone down hill we have dined there many times in the past for all types of occasions,Birthdays ,Anniversaries ,or a romantic night out.We have never had a problem,the service, food was always perfect we loved the place.We can not say that now.WE won't be returning
Great for a very special occasion
We were celebrating my husband's 80th birthday and also our son-inlaw's somewhat belated birthday. The food was expensive, but because they were out of the 6 oz. filet mignon, they allowed us to split a 12oz. one. That worked out to be a lot less expensive. The service was excellent. It is one of those places where all the glasses are removed and new ones brought when you order. Silverware is also removed and replaced between courses. I was glad I didn't have to do the dishes. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly. The side dishes were generous, enough to share. The birthday boys got complimentary desserts that were very attractive as well as delicious.
do not dine here
very poor service as restaurant filled. steak was delivered to table without come side sauce. I was 3/4 done with meal before server check in on us. I use the side sauce for the last four bites of my meal. purchased a $100. bottle wine and wine steward never returned to check back. were given desert menus and it was over 25 minutes before the waiter came back to ask if we wanted anything. not impressed with the food and especially the service! The wine was great! We posted our evening photos on Facebook and all our friends ask about it. we told them the truth.
Top Notch Service
We are frequent visitors to Tulalip Bay and have always found that the level of service is first rate, the quality of the food is exceptional, if not a little bit on the pricey side. It would be nice to see more menu changes and regular features specials.
Disappointed -serving a vegetarian meat
I'm upset they never brought the Margarita salad that we ordered. Also i told server we were vegetarians and she brought out bRussell sprouts out with bacon in them. I left hungry and angry. Server did have a great personality though which is why I had a hard time complaining.
First class service & spectacula food
We went here for the first time on a Sunday night, while staying over night at the Tulalip resort. The ambience & décor are beautiful and serene - you would never know you are just off a busy, noisy casino floor. We sat in a booth--very comfortable, white table cloths, etc. Our server was pleasant and helpful--always there when needed but not intrusive. We were served a lovely amuse with our cocktails--delicious stuffed olives. We shared an appetizer of Carpaccio, which was wrapped around a delicate, crispy potato croquette. Next, we shared a "salad" of thin asparagus spears over a bed of capicola and a poached quail egg yoke, which we broke to create a rich, delicious sauce. This might have been my favorite dish of the evening! My husband enjoyed the hazelnut crusted lamb chops--perfectly cooked & seasoned over tasty sweet potato hash. I loved my New York strip steak, perfectly cooked & seasoned. I tried the Scotch sauce on the side as a novelty--a bit too smoky for my taste, but it was fun to try. My steak came with a side of veggies that were a little soggy--maybe the one "off" note of the meal. Wine list offers extensive choices (local, California, and old world at a variety of price points) and they have a full after-dinner libation trolley that is fun, too. We didn't save room for dessert this time, but of course they brought us freshly baked chocolate sponge cake treats anyway.
We felt this stacked up well against our experience at other high-end restaurants, from John Howie to Herb Farm to the celebrity joints in Vegas. A great find, right in our own back yard!
The only negative of the evening was that, it being Sunday (they are only open Thursday- Sunday), they were out of several entrée choices (notably the fresh pasta) by the time our 8pm reservation rolled around. Still, we will definitely be back!
