We loved the food and the atmosphere just a bit pricey for our taste. We will return it is good to what we call living the life LOL.

We waited from 645-7pm before we were told that we needed reservations. At that time we were told that there was no availability until 730pm. We returned promptly just to be told that there wasn't a table cleaned and ready which took another 20 min. Server was kind, but we didn't get asked nor received any bread for our meals.

Had reservations but didn't need them. Had to wait to be seated in a near empty restaurant. Started with a very nice wait or Phil. We ordered cocktails that were enjoyable. Appetizer of fried zuchinni was awful. Very greasy yet not even crispy. Phil took away and removed from our bill. My steak was over cooked as were the brussel... More

Our wAiter came and took our drink order along with an appetizer. When the appetizer came it was under cooked and... More

La Bonna Vie Steakhouse has a wonderful menu and is located in a very fun place, Presque Isle Downs Casino and Racetrack. The food was excellent as was the service and there is plenty to do before and after dinner.

This restaurant is part of the Presque Island Casino. Like many out of the way gambling dens, it has a convenient location with, shall we say, a varied clientele. It is quite "smoky". To get to the restaurant, you must use the side entrance to casino, which is good because your second hand smoke intake is minimal and you do... More

The is the first time I've ever felt compelled to write a negative review of a restaurant. We called ahead to see what the dress code was since I was under the impression that it was a high end place. They told us that suit and tie is preferred but wear at least a suit coat since it's "business casual".... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and have always had a great meal. There were four of us in our group and we each ordered beef - two strip steaks, one surf and turf, and one filet mignon. My filet was delicious! The restaurant used to have everything on the menu a la carte, but now one side... More

We used to love the restaurant as Sensory 3 so we thought we would try out the LBV and were very disappointed. We did enjoy the new atmosphere. The tables were very private and the background music was exactly that...background. The food was a disappointment. I had the LBV Surf n Turf. My steak was good, but not exceptional. I... More
