Seared ahi tuna

Redwood Steakhouse Carries Class to The California

The latest debut in California Hotel and Casino’s multi-million-dollar redesign is the all-new Redwood Steakhouse, featuring a wide selection of steaks, fresh seafood and chops, served in a contemporary, island-inspired atmosphere.

Redwood Steakhouse’s reinvigoration spans from the menu to the room, with distinctive dishes, such as the seared ahi tuna with a lemon-pepper crust, accompanied by a refreshing green apple and jicama slaw; or the classic French onion soup, featuring a dash of aged sherry and topped with creamy Gruyère cheese and a brioche crouton. Steak selections include traditional steakhouse cuts such as filet mignon, bone-in rib eye and the Redwood’s signature Prime flat iron steak. Steaks are enjoyed with a selection of savory sauces, served “Classic Oscar” style with crab, asparagus and béarnaise, or paired with an 8 ounce-butter-broiled lobster tail. Specialties include the pan-roasted Chilean sea bass in white miso broth with bok choy; and seafood Fra Diavolo, featuring shrimp, crab, clams and mussels served atop spicy marinara and linguini pasta.

The Redwood’s new environment features touches of Hawaiian flair throughout, with a design influenced by the famous beachfront resorts of Waikiki. The restaurant façade offers glimpses into the bar and main dining room between a series of handsomely detailed, carved-walnut pilasters. The all-new bar features a custom butcher-block countertop, over-scale chandeliers and a gorgeous herringbone-patterned wood floor. Visually anchoring the bar, a large vintage burlesque vaudeville print adds an unexpected touch of whimsy to the space. In the main dining room, bespoke, fan-inspired chandeliers hang from high, vaulted ceilings. Timber beams span the ceiling coffers between exquisitely detailed columns, which are accented with drapery panels that further reinforce the casually elegant Polynesian design sensibility.

The small bites pair with a selection of signature cocktails, including the Blood Orange Whiskey Sour and Spiced Mai Tai. In addition, Redwood Steakhouse offers a robust and attractively priced wine list.
