“Perfect food in a relaxing setting”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

While this restaurant is located inside the casino at Mohegan Sun it is like eating in a stand alone restaurant. We started the meal with the clams/mussels appetizer which was perfectly seasoned. Next up was the bistro salad with the balsamic vinaigrette dressing - it arrived promptly with just the right amount of dressing. It was AYCE spaghetti night for 11.95. You get to choose the type of pasta, type of sauce and if you want extras like meatballs or sausage for a nominal fee. The pasta was delivered piping hot - cooked prefectly with an excellent red sauce . After a second helping of pasta there was no room to try the desserts.

The staff was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. The decor is well done.

If there is a down side the restaurant is very loud (lots of hard surfaces) and can be difficult to hold a conversation - of course a busy place usually represents a good place to eat!

We will return and would recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

“Good food.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We've been to the Rustic Kitchen several times and have always enjoyed our meals. We like to refer to this restaurant as "comfort food with a twist". Good food, very nice wait staff, easy to make reservation.

“Everything Was Just Right”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Amy was our server, and she was pleasant, efficient and attentive. We enjoyed the focaccia bread with white bean dip sent to the table. We ordered the soup du jour which was crab, potato and smoked gouda - wow! I had a turkey, lettuce, tomato & avocado sandwich which was supposed to come on a wheat roll but they substituted a pretzel roll on my request. With sandwiches you have a choice of fries, house-made chips or a pasta salad. I had the pasta salad, which I liked and also there are mesclun greens dressed properly on the plate. My partner had the french dip sandwich on a pretzel roll. Excellent all around.
