bluEmber at Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa
It can get chile in the eve outside so bring a sweater or jacket. Food and wine selection is a good mix.
Love the ambiance, perfect desert evening. Food was great. An experience!
We liked the menu. Interesting options. Tuna Bowl and tacos were great as well as the kid friendly food.
cant wait to come back
Great ambiance, family friendly, delicious food and priced fairly
Great resort restaurant, however I didn't appreciate being seated indoors. The space indoors really lacks atmosphere. They could use better lighting and decor to make the indoor seating more elegant and enticing. The service was good overall. The steak was excellent!
Very pleasant location. Food was very good, pleasznt atmosphere, good music
overcooked and service was bleak/not present. They at least did the proper thing and removed the plates that were not up to standards from the bill. I think everyone that works at this resort is finished with Summer. They are all non-attentive to guest needs.
Surprisingly delicious dinner. Best sea bass we ever had
Our meal was amazing! From start to finish. Our waiter, Oscar, was great and the whole experience was great. From the food to the service, all around great experience!
Great quality and great service. We were seated immediately and the servers were very accommodating for my family. Really appreciated the kids eat free section with every entree.
Our server was great and provided a free dessert for our anniversary!
Delicious food. Superb service. I love that they have a kids buffet that is included with an adult meal. They also gave us a special anniversary dessert to celebrate.
This was a great choice for convenience and for quality of food. Staying at the resort made it an easy decision for us, plus they went above and beyond when they found out it was my stepdaughter’s birthday. We’d dined here before and the only let down was that the menu was different (I found a dish before that I loved and it wasn’t available anymore). However, my husband LOVED the turkey sandwich - he can’t get enough of it! Kudos to our waiter, Oscar, who was the right balance of service and timeliness.
Our server Shelby was great. Always a great dinner
Beautiful ambience. Service excellent particularly Shelby our server. Attentive yet sensitive to the needs of the table. Easy to make reservations. All service personnel were superb. I would highly recommend it.
Great food and service!!
The hostess was kind of abrasive .... but our server Oscar was OUTSTANDING!!! Thank you for making our experience memorable. We will be back thanks to him !
From the way the restaurant promotes itself, I thought it was a quiet , sophisticated, adult environment. There were screaming kids and babies at multiple tables and no attempt to create a quiet environment for dining. Families with kids and babies should probably be seated in a separate area. Thanks
The food was so good! We were so surprised!!!!!!! It was GREAT!!!! Literally the only complaint I have is this.... They brought bread and apps with no side plates. We're so low key. Who cares! We messaged and called the place beforehand to ask if we could get pancakes for dinner for my birthday boy. They made it happen. They delivered the pancakes with no syrup. Honestly, who cares! They made my birthday boy's wish come true. Food was exceptional. No complaints! So very appreciative! Great service and friendly staff. No complaints.
Fantastic meal thank you for the great experience at dinner
Food was ok, service was ok, it was ok.
Restaurant is inside, outside area is beautiful. The place was filled with children under ten. We had to ask to be seated elsewhere. Food took approx 45 mins to an hour to receive. My meal was very good, as was another’s. The third party with dietary restrictions ordered a la carte and received the tiniest pc of chicken, range free which was the size of a cornish game hen. They only provided a tiny leg and thigh combo. Bedsides being lost on the huge plate, my guest had dietary request and they said they couldn’t comply with another vegetable option. They did eventually supply a boring salad. I wouldn’t go back.
Food was pretty good a bit limited for lunch on the menu, service was slow especially considering there was nobody there appetizers came with the main meal that ialways sucks
It was my sons birthday and we had the worst service and worst table!!
I ate at an outside table with a view of flowering trees, pond, pool and golf green. Service by our waiter Monty was friendly and attentive. The food (Thai tacos) and drinks were very good.
Friends were here from Long Beach. Always fun
Service needs to be improved. We couldn't find our server, neither could the host and hostess. Poor
We had 4 adults in our party looking for a nice evening out. We wanted to sit outside near the entertainment but when we got there they said they shut down the outside dining and there was no outside entertainment. The hostess seated us in the very back area near 3 tables of small kids, not quiet!! The food was good, service was ok. When we left we notice there were people dining outside, that was frustrating. The only entertainment we found was in the bar and it was too loud for such a small bar. Needless to say it was not the nice evening we were looking for.
It's a fine place to get a bite if you are staying at the hotel but nothing special. They are great at accommodating children though and pricing for kids is great.
Great food and fabulous service. Friendly staff.
Great food and great service. The surroundings were beautiful and the music was nice. We had a wonderful experience.
Menu bad changed. Less elegant. Patrons with hats, flip flops, and tank tops.
Amazing patio. We arrived for a 5:30pm reservation and it was still fairly hot. For some reason, they refuse to put an umbrella by our table. That being said, the hostess was very kind in giving us a table that within 30 minutes was in the shade. Service and food were very good.
What a great outdoor dining space! We have enjoyed this spot for many years.
The outside deck where we sat has a lovely ambiance. Upon our severs recommendation we ordered the meatless chicken and it was absolutely delicious! We will return to the bluEmber.
It is all the same food you can find at splash grill and room service with added entrees & special dishes. The food was good, but cold once I got to eat my filet mignon which was delivered without a steak knife and was cold by the time I request one and was given one. Also, server did not check on us to refill cocktails from the first round until we were finished eating. My husband and I ordered the same drink- kettle one and soda and the second round came and was not consistent. My drink tasted like cheap vodka and my husband tasted like there was no alcohol. All in all disappointing for the price. We should have gone across the street to Flemings or PF Changs.
The setting is gorgeous. Our service was slow, but what was really bad was that I was charged $2.50 for “rocks” when I ordered a Baileys on the rocks. I’ve never had that happen before. I think they should tell you as you are ordering.
Enjoyed the overall experience, from the food to the entertainment.
This is a pleasant outdoor luncheon spot, on the patio overlooking the pool area. Even better was the cheeseburger ... large, juicy, left rare just as ordered, and on a very tasty bun. Best of all was our very responsive, continually attentive server.
We have been going to the Blue Ember for many years , the service and the food was the best ever !
