  • "Perfect comfortable and quiet atmosphere for a nice evening of celebration with friends. Easy to talk, great atmosphere, food, and service. We will be back!"

  • "My risotto was undercooked. The lamb was very tender but had NO FLAVOR. Dessert was lousy concoction of ladyfingers with 2 orange segments placed on top of a pool of white chocolate. We were there for 2 hours for 3 courses--ridiculously slow but very polite server."

  • "My wife loved her choices. I was somewhat disappointed with my pasta dish and the lamb shank I ordered, both dishes were just slightly lacking."

  • "Beautiful place...felt like I was in Hawaii! Lovely food, great atmosphere. Only downer - our service wasn't very good at all."

  • "My dau. ordered Clam Linguini. I ordered Fazzoletti Al Bolognese at the waiter's suggestion (House Made Spinach Pasta, Korobuta Pork Ragu). The linguini was inedible as the sauce contained red pepper flakes which is not noted on the menu. My Spinach Pasta, was a wad of pasta sheets with nothing between the layers, smothered with Ragu. My dau. & I switched plates as I can tolerate pepper flakes, but this dish was just too spicy. My dau. ate a bit of Spinach Pasta but got bored with just a mound of plain pasta. I suggest ALL ingredients of the dish be included on the menu for those who may be allergic/intolerant. The Spinach Pasta was true to the menu but what an awful way to serve the dish. High prices, Little value."

  • "Meatball appetizer had raw center. Seafood Rissoto lacked flavor and the Rissoto was undercooked. They source ingredients from great places and maybe we caught them on an off day."

  • "We are locals who have forgotten that fine dining and ambiance is right in our back yard. Our Valentine's Day evening was such a delight. From the moment we were met and ushered in to the romantic dining room, we were met with the ultimate service. Every morsel we ordered was fabulous. We would go again and highly recommend this beautiful restaurant."

  • "We were so looking forward to celebrating New Year's Eve at Sirocco, here having had an excellent meal here a few years ago. We were disappointed not to be offered the a la carte menu, and the New Years Eve menu was limited eg only one desert option.. The food was also disappointing, bland and uninspired. We also found the service rushed. Overall, the evening was expensive and extremely disappointing."

  • "From the moment you step into the dining room, you know you have entered a fine dining establishment. Our waitress, Sally, was attentive and informative. They offer a variety of dishes, from appetizers to pasta to meat or fish dishes. The only negative we experienced, was the noise level. The restaurant is very open, with no walls to absorb the conversations around you."

  • "My husband and I were staying at the Renaissance Esmeralda for our one year anniversary and decided to have dinner at Sirocco since it was in the lobby and seemed convenient. We got so much more than we expected! From the very beginning, the staff welcomed us and they all said "Happy Anniversary" to us. The waiter was very professional and extremely knowledgeable and the other wait staff were also very helpful. When we were almost finished with our meal (which was AMAZING!), the manager came to our table to greet us and see how everything was going. He was also extremely professional and arranged for a special dessert to be delivered to our table. It was more special than we ever could have imagined. This is a MUST try!"

  • "A gourmet Italian restaurant in the desert in an elegant hotel setting overlooking a lake with waterfalls. That's " Sirocco " at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa. Starting with a chef's tasting,continuing with a wonderful salad , and a choice of Pasta or Rissoto, Surprised with the serving of an intermezzo [ cool sorbet ] and then on to an entree that was just outstanding . My wife had a bone in Filet which didn't need a knife to cut. I had Mediteranean Branzino, my favorite fish [ can't find it everywhere ]. On the way out, the host presented us with a gift of Italian Biscotti to take home to continue to savor the memories of a dinner to remember. Accolades to our server " Brian " who helped make it happen."
