Private dining area at The Great Oak Steakhouse

Prime steaks. Caviar. Wagyu beef. Lobster. These fine dining dishes speak for themselves. Though when combined with the brand new, inviting, and modern ambiance and more than 200 wine selections inside the completely remodeled Great Oak Steakhouse, guests get a dining experience to remember and return.

Pechanga Resort Casino proudly reintroduces its signature restaurant, the Great Oak Steakhouse, following an intensive seven-month remodel. From the front façade to the back kitchen, the entire 8,000 square-foot space underwent a refresh. Inside the dining room, warm and rich gold, brass, and earth tones woven with complementary soft colors draw the eye up to accent lighting and bold chandeliers. A 30-foot long by five-foot-tall stained glass, textured façade looking out to the casino designed and executed entirely by hand by a local, San Diego glass artist, serves as the restaurant’s first nod to the Tribe’s sacred Great Oak Tree.

Once inside the restaurant, guests can start their evening at the new bar and lounge located off the main dining area. The lounge offers menu choices such as Wagyu beef tartare or oak grilled oysters beginning at 3 p.m. each day. Guests may choose among 16 seats at the bar and 36 seats in the lounge. The menu features 15 cocktails, many created with locally and responsibly sourced ingredients.

The remodeled restaurant ushers in an exciting menu featuring eight steak cuts, as well as Wagyu selections, cooked to order by Chef Emmanuel Inocencio, an 11-year culinary veteran of Pechanga and his highly trained team. Steak, poultry, fresh seafood, incredible vegetables, and side dishes are prepared to perfection by Inocencio’s acclaimed team. Pechanga procures much of its ingredients from local farms.

For guests looking for an unmatched dining experience in Southern California, parties of six to 10 can reserve the Chef’s Table. A semi-private dining experience situated between two glass-enclosed walls, encasing 288 bottles of red wine, the Chef’s Table offers an eight-course culinary journey with wine or cocktail pairings.

Two additional dining destinations within Pechanga recently received updates. Umi Sushi & Oyster Bar, renowned for its 2nd place finish in USA Today’s Best Casino Restaurant readers’ poll, expanded its bar area and lounge area. Guests may order up a cool drink or delicious appetizer in the new bar area Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Paisano’s, serving authentic Italian cuisine, underwent a refresh of its front entrance, restaurant lighting, and many interior finishes. Chef Amanda Colello who appeared on “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Chopped” heads the culinary offerings at Paisano’s, taking recipes and cooking specialties from her New York upbringing and pairing them with the freshness and unique ingredients only found on the West Coast.

The Great Oak Steakhouse is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The bar lounge opens at 3 p.m. and closes with the restaurant.
