We celebrated our anniversary at Bellatrix and had a wonderful meal. It's a lovely setting. The wait staff was wonderful and the food was fabulous. The sea bass was prepared by request without the cajun spice and it melted in my mouth. The price fixe menu was so reasonably priced which includes a glass of wine and dessert (don't forget the half baked cookie, to die for!) It was lovely evening!

We have enjoyed Bellatrix in the past, but Saturday seemed to be an off night. Perhaps it was because of a wedding going on.

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived until we left. The food was extraordinary. The service excellent. I'd give them 10 stars if I could.

Once again we left Bellatrix totally pleased with all aspects. The food is amazing, but the atmosphere, views, and staff are even better than the food. Highly recommend.

There were so many interesting items on the menu that we didn't know what to choose first. We began by ordering the lobster cerviche and the ahi. Each one was was delicious and marinated to perfection. For the main entree we ordered salmon and 1/2 rack of lamb. The salmon was delicious but my lamb was indescribably wonderful, served with the best tasting couscous I have ever eaten. I probably could order that meal everyday! The meals were also a visual feast for the eyes. As if we didn't stuff ourselves enough, we could not pass up the chocolate decadence with ice cream/cherries for desert. Need I tell you that if you are a choclaholic, this is the desert for you! We waddled out of the restaurant, and as soon as we exerciseoff that amazing meal, we'll be back!

The atmosphere is wonderfully serene, service is top-notch, and the food is as beautifully plated as it is delicious. Do not miss the beef filet! We have decided that THIS will be our family restaurant to important occasions and celebrations. It is spot-on every time.

Another fantastic meal at Bellatrix. Have been here before and has fast become my favorite. Our server, Julian was very friendly and accomodating. His service was great and was always there when we needed him. Food to die for, Sea Bass with blueberry compote, fantastic !!!. Salmon is wonderful, try ordering it with blackened seasoning was delicious. We ordered a variety of desserts for our table of 6 and all were a perfect ending. This is a very relaxing restaurant, we will be back.

Food was excellent and the presentation amazing. Sadly we were the only diners at 6:00.
Soup and salad were plentiful and delicious.
Rack of lamb and Chilean sea bass were our entrees and we were still
talking about them days later.
It was my birthday dinner and it could not possibly have been improved upon.

The filet I ordered was one of the best I have had anywhere. It was cooked as I requested and was very tasty. The others in my party thoroughly enjoyed the pork chop. The service was good and the people there were friendly. The surroundings, and view of the golf course and mountains, especially at sunset were fantastic. We ate outdoors on the patio with just a few other tables and were comfortable even in the hot June weather.

I was disappointed that there was no gluten free bread available when the other diners were being served. That is really getting to be out of the norm - failing to accommodate gluten free. But my sea bass was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was our first time going to Bellatrix and were taking an out-of-town friend, hoping for a special evening. We were not disappointed. The food was exceptional in every way! Our waitress was fine - not overly friendly or attentive, but she got the job done and we had no complaints. Views were pretty. Definitely going back.

Have been here many times and decided to do a double birthday celebration. Went for the Wed. prime rib... sorry to say the meat was not very tasty. The second disappointment was that the Chocolate Cake for dessert -- they ran out. Honestly, there were maybe 2 other tables occupied and they ran out. Will not return. Service was excellent.

Such a disappointing experience on Easter Sunday. In fairness I did not check the menu ahead of time but assumed it would be some type of nice Easter brunch. I was wrong. They had an extremely limited menu, almost no appetizers to choose from and maybe 10 entrees. There were no drink specials, Mimosas, or otherwise featured.

The room is sunny and airy but our table for 2 was at the only dark wall in the entire place. After contemplating leaving, the manager did come over and slide the table over so we were in front of glass doors and could see out to the golf course. However, there was nothing festive in room - no flowers, no small Easter flourishes to make it feel celebratory.

My husband ordered the lobster roll which came with about 1/2 cup of lobster filling on a small 4" roll with about 1/2 cup of coleslaw for $19.

One of the worst case scenarios for a restaurant is that your guests leave hungry. We both left feeling wholly unsatisfied.

And the waitress over-poured both of my Mimosas which went all over the table. She said the "third one is on us." What??? I don't want a third one. Just comp me the second one which she did.

Overall a super disappointing brunch.

We were very disappointed in our experience here.
Food was good.
People were nice enough.
Server was fine.
Beautiful setting.
What went wrong then?
The place was pretty empty, but they chose to put the two of us next to a table with four children who were loud, instead of a quiet table, with an even better view outside.
And, it was right in front of the service to outside door.
There were four open tables!
We got the one overlooking the cement drive, and not one of the several with a direct waterfall view.
We would have asked to be moved, but too much of a hassle as the table was striped and would have needed a tablecloth and everything.
We wanted a nice romantic dinner, and did not get that.
Also, the bus boy was could use some training.
He dropped silverware twice and was nice, but not very professional.
The evening should have been lovely, but felt stressful.
We won't be back and we visit the area regularly.

The surrounding are gorgeous. We sat out on the patio and it was wonderful. However the waitress was unbelievably curt, abrupt, and disappeared for long periods of time and never came back. This is the fourth time I have eaten there and have found that overall, at the Classic club and the Bellatrix, the staff are not attentive and really couldn’t care less. It is obviously this place is not a for profit organization and it shows.

Service was great, food good. When doors to outdoor area were kept open unnecessarily long open, it was a wind tunnel.
