Have you been looking for that great seafood/steakhouse restaurant. Well vegas24seven.com has found the answer. We had the pleasure of experiencing ultra fine dining at the R Steak and Seafood restaurant in the Riviera Hotel and Casino. Restaurant manager Odette greeted us and was very friendly and helpful. We were seated at a nice table with perhaps the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat in to eat. We were introduced to our waiter Bobby and our journey began. Bobby was super helpful, funny and charismatic. We enjoyed his service and the help that Michelle provided as well. Chef Jason Bradley has put together an outstanding menu of sensational foods. I wanted them all.
We ordered drinks, appetizers and salad and knew from the get go that this was going to be a great evening. First they brought us loaves of their famous bread with butter, seasoned butter and seasoned sour cream. It was warm, very tasty and a pleasant start for the evening. When our calamari and habanero wings arrived we got much more than just an appetizer. They were cooked and prepared to perfection. The wings were blazing hot just the way we like them and the sauce for them was a great compliment to that. The calamari just melted in your mouth with an equally great sauce. Our party ordered Caesar salads and I chose the R Salad. I like salad and this one had Asian pears, walnuts, tomatoes, greens and and sweet mustard dressing that was fantastic. But it just kept getting better. Then they brought our main dishes. The girls had the filet mignon with steak fries and the rib eye with garlic mashed potatoes. Us macho boys had the 24 oz porterhouse steaks,. I had the traditional giant baked potato with bacon and cheese. My son had the macaroni and cheese. The portions were nice sized and shareable and we did just that.
The food was cooked exactly to our liking and right on time. The beef had a unique and unusual combination of seasonings and it worked. I’ve had plenty of steaks but I can say that I have never had a steak like this. In was great. Each bite was absolutely scrumptious and I didn’t want it to end. Everyone in our party was raving about how good the steak and their food was. I can’t wait to go back and try out more of the seafood. I’m sure that it’s just as great.
Were we done… nope. Already stuffed but not ready to end the experience we ordered “The Swan” to share for desert and I had to get an espresso as well. What a wonderful dessert. A light pastry cream puff shaped into a swan surrounding mounds of vanilla bean ice cream, sweet whipped cream and chocolate and raspberries. Even though we were full we finished every morsel of this exotic dessert. Now the evening was complete. An absolutely fine dining experience. Great facility, great staff, great selection and the greatest food. We didn’t partake of any spirits but the wine list and drinks are supposed to be top notch as well.
