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.

BluEmber was perfection..
BluEmber was perfection.. Exquisite wine list/ menu/service/MUSIC!!!
The only down side was too many pre schoolers/families w/ crying babies.
The ambience then was like a day care center vs an elegant dining experience.
Perhaps put all the families/ kids at the back of the outdoor dining, away from the music. Thank you!!!!!

the Blue Ember is our favourite
the 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 desert

We really loved this place. They had music on the patio while we had a cocktail and the dinner setting was lovely. Will definitely return.

A true gem
bluEmber provides a varied local grown menu with interesting cocktails and wine list. The service was attentive and considerate, willing to provide for leisurely dining or a quick meal. The chilled carrot soup was delicious as well as the whole leaf caesar salad. Portions were ample and we had no room for dessert. We enjoyed the shrimp & crab pasta, pasta prima vera, and the filet mignon. I recommend a later reservation since many parents staying at hotel allow their children to run in and out of dining area.

Chef had a off night where
Chef had a off night where our meal for 4 took over 1.5 hours to be served and my Filet was over cooked and fries were cold.
The manager came through and replaced Filet with requested Salmon for free.
I would recommend coming back due to management handling of service and food since all restaurants / cooks have off nights.

The food was good and maybe a little better but not something that really sticks out in your mind. The service was great and space is beautiful. Too warm for outside but the space is great for different time of year. Very good overall. Worth a trip.

great for our door but only
great for our door but only between October and May otherwise the heat of the desert will kill you
Also be aware that during the summer they have family specials which is great but the dining room was over run with loud children running back and forth to the kids eat free buffet and the parents didn't seem to care or provide any supervision which spoiled what was suppose to be a special occasion evening. That said the food was very good, the desert menu is totally uninspiring

Beautiful atmosphere with excellent food and service. Visiting from out of town and the restaurant alone would make us want to choose this resort for our next visit.

Music and food under the stars
Party of 8, all family and friends, had a wonderful time dining outside while listening to some light music that was eclectic, memorable and non-intrusive. At times it was a concert as we enjoyed the style and warmth of the group, at other times we simply enjoyed our conversations and a well-prepared meal.

Beautiful outdoor setting overlooking the golf course & hotel. Numerous fire pits add a wonderful ambience and great cocktail setting for groups. We were there on a weekend night and since it is a hotel restaurant there are lots of children around for evening dining however, live music helps diffuse the noise. Food must come a long way to the outdoor patio and keeping it hot is a problem. Very nice menu with some interesting selections. Service was very good and ambience is hard to beat.

We'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.
