    We decided to go to Bellatrix for our wedding anniversary and were very glad we did. The staff at all levels is very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. My filet was cooked to perfection. The manager, herself, decorated the desert plate with Happy Anniversary in chocolate and caramel. Mmmmmm! We can't wait to go back.

    Have been back multipole times and continue to enjoy this restaurant. My one concern is that when one orders the prime rib special which is suppose to be "all you can eat" the waitress should come back and ask if you would like another piece and not just assume you are not interested. I waited so long for them to return to ask that i was not interested at that point although I was 10 minutes earleir... the rest of the part had already finsihed eating!

    It was our first visit... we were celebrating our anniversary. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne which was very special. The service was outstanding and the entire staff couldn't of been more friendly. The setting is elegant yet it makes for a relaxed feel. The wine list is outstanding. We will definitely be back…

    This was by far the best meal we experienced during the annual Restaurant Week this year. The ambiance of the room was wonderful. Our server, Natalie, was attentive. The plate was so beautiful, I couldn't resist taking a picture of it before I demolished it! Very creative and pleasing to the eye, as well as deliciously tasty! And, then the dessert...I keep thinking about it...cinnamon donut cake with a dollop of cinnamon ice cream! Oh my gosh...to die for...and, I'm usually a chocolate lover! Beautiful, scrumptious choice for your dining pleasure!!

    We had dinner on the outdoor terrace. The view of the greens and mountains was wonderful , particularly at sunset. The outdoor area was peaceful and quiet. The noise level in the interior area was quite high and I am glad that we chose to eat on the terrace. The service was great and the dinner, bar service and wine list were all great. It was my first visit to this nearby restaurant which surprised me with its beautiful interior area and surroundings.

    WOW! What great food and fantastic service. This club in a not for profit club and they have a great selection for dinner, happy-hour, and lunch. Plus, if you like wine, they serve many wine choices by the glass in different oz. pours. Plus, they are great prices! We ate here last night and greatly enjoyed the prime NY strip steak, the Bellatrix salad, and the scallops appetizer! All were fantastic! This is a hidden gem in the desert. Great service as always too! Thanks! Will definitely come back again and again! :)

    "Mother's Day Brunch" Cute hostess - 2 checks. Cute servers - check. All staff was very friendly. Watching the bananas foster chef was entertaining. There is a great selection of food and everything tasted fresh. I was told and have now tasted the excellent prime rib. I attended Wally's Desert Turtle for Mother's Day last year, and Bellatrix was better and less expensive. The views are nice since this is off of the Classic Club golf course.

    We had a great evening enjoying their fantastic 3-course special for $37. Appetizer, Entree and Dessert. I had the Scallop raviol for the appetizer...fantatic...this wasn't Raviolo but Scallops with mushroom and tomatoes...Yummy. Also had the Veal Porterhouse and it was great. Dessert..the donut, freshly made with Carmel Sorbet. I was full for sure. Not sure that the Shrimp cocktail was fresh shrimp but frozen...lacked taste my husband said. The brussel sprouts were over grilled . The service was wonderful and we probably will return.

Was my first visit to Bellatrix and thanks to Ms. Tabitha & the staff of The Classic Club / Bellatrix look forward to a return visit sooner rather than later. The Italian panini I ordered was flavorful and the classic Caesar salad with anchovy a classy Ol' school touch

    Totally recommended by Open Table, this restaurant and it's story, crew and food were a find! We had a group of 6 business folks staying nearby and I found this restaurant on Open Table. We were late, our group was smaller than planned and after the staff had resized the table, we asked to sit outside. They handled it all with a smile. We were surprised and delighted at the menu and the 3 for 37.00 but mostly how good all the food was. Each course was delicious! I personally loved the non pretentious menu descriptions- really great food, simply described and delicious to eat. The wine knowledge from the manager was above all and some of the best recommendations ever to date! And the prices were outstanding on the wine. We will be back.

    We are a Dining Card Group and couldn't havbeen more pleased. As you can see with all I checked everything was excellent. The fish dishes are very creative. Everything is beautifully presented. The steak was tender and cooked to perfection. I had a Pinot Noir and it was also excellent. The service was attentive and we appreciated the chef coming by as well. They graciously accepted our dining cards. It was the first time some members of my group had been there and they are looking forward to their next visit. One more thing that really impressed me is their willingness to substitute about anything on the menu with other choices. It is now among my favorite restaurants.

    My husband, a friend, and I dined at Bellatrix based on Open Table reviews. It did not disappoint. We all ordered the fixed prix three course meal and were delighted over each of the courses. My husband had the ahi appetizer and my friend and I had salads for the first course. I had the chicken pappardelle, my husband had a steak, and my friend had the salmon. All were very we'll prepared. We all thoroughly enjoyed our desserts. It was a good price and great meal. We went on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was almost empty.
