About
Us

Contemporary California Cuisine with focus on seasonal and regionally sourced ingredients, Chef Antonio Votta’s menus are both serious and imaginative, with familiar dishes re-imagined. The modern restaurant design features 3 distinct areas: an open kitchen concept that overlooks the main dining room, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area, as well as an enclosed patio area that provides a bit more privacy and mountain views. Guests can watch the action of the casino, have an intimate dinner, and everything in between. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites, to feasts prepared for the whole table.
