                                                                Biggest disappointment was that the menu on this site bore no resemblance to the mediocre menu when we arrived. There was little choice at all. The food was not bad - butternut pumpkin soup was very nice, steaks were nicely caramelised and cooked to order. But the bread with soup was rubbery and who wants soy lecithin with milk solids when you can have butter? Vegetables were ordinary. But they did have cream with coffee which was a plus.

The meal was delivered and the fries were undercooked, asked for them to be returned and cooked longer - when they returned they were still under cooked! It was a dark setting, staff were only friendly to certain patrons. One staff member was quite disruptive as she was over socializing with certain patrons and at times it was distracting. Not much on the menu.

We like the generally quiet atmosphere and space between tables. Service was good but they appeared, owing to this current crisis to be a little short staffed. It was secluded to be placed in the corner of the room but as it winter time I could feel the cold of the very near exterior glass wall. The main course steak was a sufficient size and quality. We particularly enjoyed the warm chocolate brownie. We will return for meals at this restaurant and will invite friends along next time.

                                                                Our experience was a positive one from parking through the very colourfully suited COncierge, to our water and waitress. The food was very good as expected and the wine service was also very refined as expected and a bit more. One point with wine selection, red wines in particular for myself, is the lack of choices for a type eg. Merlot only one available, Shiraz only one available. Be good to see at least two choices, noting the shiraz was one off selection and the most expensive of the reds (which by the way we selected). One local and one interstate selections at least in the same grape type. Being a week night, the restaurant was not busy which allowed us to enjoy our 4 way discussions and chat, which was very pleasant, noting however, the here tables with people were in same close vicinity. Ambience was excellent, noting however, hovering over us near the end of the evening subtly asking nus to leave which we eventually did. As guests at the hotel our friends found there was no other bar to enjoy a night cap. Overall, a very enjoyable meal.

There were only 2 other tables, one with 2 people, the other with 4, not exactly busy. We waited almost 45 mins for our meals, burgers, wraps and soup. When they finally came out, half of the tables meals were cold, (hot chips are very unpleasant when cold)! My wrap was very nice and my chips were hot, but I won't be returning or recommending to others. Also, $25 for a wrap and chips is very expensive. However, the staff were very friendly and pleasant, couldn't fault them at all.

Trust me we were not disappointed. Thankyou for such a wonderful evening, we not hesitate in returning

Dinner receive our meals, waiting staff and floor manager could not have cared there were 11 people from different tables who didn't receive their meals. drinks were forgotten and the meals we saw when we left were mostly left. Never ever will I go back.

                                                                Redsalt had a potential to be an excellent venue, with a spacious layout, views and part of a four star hotel. Unfortunately while the food was great and service was attentive, if a little vague at times, the ambiance was non-existent. The tables were set with a bare minimal utensils, no table cloth and our shared entre was consumed using the bread plates. In other words the room set up was more befitting a staff cafeteria rather than intimate dining. The pity is the food actual was really good. The Lamb loin was uber-tender and the steak while a little dry at the ends, was tasty as was the accompanying vegetables. With some attention to details rather than cost cutting, Redsalt's top end restaurant prices for the food may seem a little easier to bare if the surroundings were given the same love as the kitchen oviously gave that food.

The service was great, and the food was good. Maybe a little too pricey but it was tasty, and well presented. Great for groups, as you can split the bills - always appreciated. The only con was the room temperature, the air-con perhaps was a little too high for dining. Other than that, the Red Salt Restaurant at the Casino is a nice choice for a mid-week get together with friends and family. Thank you

                                                                Red Salt presents very well. The staff were helpful and friendly. The menu is not extensive, but there are some good choices on it. We were prepared to enjoy the evening, BUT there was music playing from a speaker above our heads at intrusive levels. - loud enough to prevent easy conversation across a two person table. Jarring rather than calming music, and given the age profile of the other guests I suspect that it was not appropriate for the majority. Twice I asked if it could be turned down, but I did not notice any appreciable improvement. Finally (after half an hour) I asked the manager why it was necessary to play music at an intrusive level, and of a bouncy kind. He explained that it was hotel music and he had no choice in the music style. But he did agree to turn it down, which he did, and from then on the evening was perfect. Good food, good atmosphere. I am constantly amazed at restaurants that add to the aggregate noise level by playing loud music. This one was nowhere near as bad as many, but it was still intrusive. In my view meals should be enjoyed with conversation. If you want music go to a bar. Managers could do well to ask their guests if the music is too loud as a matter of course. Or better still turn it down once the conversation levels rise - which they have to to compete with music.

The food we ordered were good for the price. But overall, i wouldnt come back even the food was good. Oh, but the second waiter who substitute the first one was nice.

There was a wide variety to choose from. We ordered the pork belly, the salmon and lamb rump. The dishes were very good especially their presentation although the lamb rump was a bit too salty.
