The food is not described very well. We got many dishes thinking they where one thing and came out very different and very spicy to point they could not be eaten. How ever the dry aged stake was the one meal that came out amazing.

Phenomenal food and service. However heard they are changing over to a new type of restaurant they have in other MGM establishments across the country, called Costa. Anyway if you can get there before they make the change, do it. Best Caesar Salad ever. Excellent entrees. Fabulous desserts.

The service was excellent. Our waitress was patient, thoughtful and pointed out items on the menu that would be prepared well gluten-free. The dinner was excellent, The Brussels were to die for. Delicious meal and outstanding service.

We always choose Cal Mare for our dine out choice. The service is extremely attentive, even on a busy day like Christmas, we were attended to with care. WE LOVE CAL MARE'S menu. The food is always superb!

We’ve enjoyed Cal Mare a couple times. It’s a treat, for sure. The food is consistently tasty and yet, slightly innovative to some degree. We just love it.
You will too.

I love Cal Mare. The food is always outstanding and the ambiance lively. Service was a little subpar this visit, but this was far from normal. We dine here every time we go to MGM Springfield, and will continue doing so.

I want to start by saying that our waitress was excellent and a true professional. However, the host staff and (what I can only presume was) the manager were beyond rude and incompetent. Long story short, we were sat around 7pm for a 6:30 reservation. While we waited we watched the staff run around like they didn’t have a clue as to what was going on. When the manager came over to “apologize” for the wait, we explained that we had tickets for an 8pm show and he could have not been ruder. He snapped that he was having four tables set and stormed away. We waited another ten minutes and only remained because we could not get a table at any of the other restaurants in the casino or the surrounding area (yes, we had time to call all of them).

Like I mentioned at the beginning, our waitress was great and was really the only highlight of our experience. The food wasn’t all that good and watching the host staff scrambling all over the restaurant just stressed me out. I doubt I’ll be back.

Food was OK. Highlights were the Linguini with Clam Sauce (really liked the homemade pasta) and the Grilled Whole Branzino. BUT the potatoes under the Branzino are horrible. Greasy and tasteless, they would benefit from seasoning (maybe some Rosemary, Salt & Pepper) and less oil. Be warned they also appear on the Sunday Brunch menu as a side dish.

Carpaccio MUCH to salty.
If you are ready to spend 18$ spaghetti with butter you’re good to go.
Chocolate Ice Cream was with little outdated chocolate pickles and probably also outdated Hazelnuts.
Of course some course were ok, but these points above were enough to make us regret the stay.

Dinner at Cal Mare was delicious!! Appetizers were enough for two people to share and entrees were sufficient to finish off my appetite. Service was very attentive and friendly. A very nice place to eat.

CM needs to keep introducing more new items or, at least, have different daily specials. The menu is too short and static to eat there often.

Waitress really pushed alcohol/drinks, not enough menu choices, mediocre entrees although butternut squash polenta was very good. Wont go back again, too many better alternatives in the area.

Service was fantastic... food was very good but spicing was a little mild for me. I would have preferred a break from the noise and music from the casino. Would go again but ask for a table farther from the walkway and slots.

At MGM SPRINGFIELD for a business conference. Met associates for dinner before it begins. Only restaurant in hotel open was Cal Mare (the steakhouse was closed). Excellent food, wine list and service but the noise level in the half full restaurant was beyond loud making conversation very difficult. Not inexpensive but would return fit the food - not to have meaningful conversation.

The garlic flavor in the chickpea pancake appetizer was overwhelming. All the other food we ordered was very good. Also the takeout bag is over the top; in other words, it is a waste of paper, too big and environmentally irresponsible.

The place was good and the people were very friendly. The menu is very limited, but what we got to eat was pretty good.

We got the clams casino as an appetizer and they were good.

I got the pork chop for my main dish and it was really good.

My wife got the steak and it had to get sent back. It want well done.

The deserts are also very limited and just “ok”.

The food, service, and staff is impeccable. The music is quite loud, though necessary to drown out the sounds of the casino a few yards away.
We had to walk a LONG way through the casino (I get it, it’s done on purpose) to get to the restaurant. The casino is loud. The announcers’ voice is EVERYWHERE, even in the restrooms. It’s very loud.
IF I go back, I will put earplugs in before I walk into the building.
