bluEmber at Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa
Fantastic Food but,Fantastic Food but, overpriced for what it was. The chairs were the most uncomfortable we have ever sat in. This would be great if your a guest of the resort and didn't want to go anywhere off property.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had heard good things aboutWe had heard good things about the food, so we expected better. Although the quality was very good, the taste wasn't very interesting and seemed to be lacking in flavor. The ambiance is great outside with live music and fire pits all over and our server was great. We were there in April, so the weather was perfect. The only reason that I'm not recommending the restaurant is because the food does not live up to the prices they charge.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMthe Blue Ember is our favouritethe Blue Ember is our favourite place in the desert, particularly from Thursday to Sunday when we can also dance under the stars to fabulous music. It is a MUST when in the desert4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding everything; foodOutstanding everything; food music, outdoor scenery, etc. Delicious mussels, grilled artichoke, cold carrot soup, and wonderful tuna.
Had our eleven year old granddaughter with us and we all loved the music and dancing. great evening.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe wanted to eat outside,We wanted to eat outside, but it was too noisy, as a band was playing. So, we went inside and had our own room with our own waiter who was very attentive. Carrot/ginger cold soup outstanding, as were the scallops. Tuna was highest of quality, but not seared on the outside enough. Flavor delicious. We had a wonderful time visiting with friends we don't often see.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love bluEmber for outdoorWe love bluEmber for outdoor dining! Live music is a nice touch and the food is fun and different. Well worth a stop, even if you aren't into resort dining.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional SettingWe've always loved blu ember for its incredible ambiance. After many meals there we felt the food has (finally) improved to the level of the atmosphere and the prices. So if you'd given up on it because of mediocre food, give it another shot. The grilled artichoke was perfect. The wedge salad the best looking wedge ever. Our party enjoyed scallops, lamb loin, and ahi, all to rave reviews. One problem still is that of the 6 appetizers, 4 are shellfish, not to great for someone with a shellfish allergy. Our server was professional and attentive.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
