We had the Cobb salads. Turkey instead of the usual was fine but putting a French dressing on a Cobb salad is not a novelty, it's a culinary mistake. The bar room they used for lunch was relatively dark with no real views of the beautiful Classic Club course. In short, it was an uninspired dining experience in a drab setting.

Bellatrix was very upscale in feel and appearance, yet warm service helped to be relaxed. The restaurant overlooks a spectacular golf course. I am sure the daytime view is great with the mountains very near. The meal was excellent and service was great. Highly recommend for special occasions.

Our lunch at Bellatrix was outstanding. In a party of 8, there was not one unhappy diner. Not only great sandwich and salad entrees, but the service was outstanding.our server, Dez, was attentive but very unobtrusive. We hope to return many times.

I haven't been to Bellatrix in awhile and I was happy to go back because everything about Bellatrix is sensational! It is a beautiful setting, clean, extremely well-trained staff and the food is delicious!

We had the Cobb salad that was beautiful and well prepared and the blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich that was excellent.

I can't wait to go back and I won't wait so long for the next time!

Food at Bellatrix is some of the best in the desert...if you haven't been there, it's a must go!
Some of our favorites: shortribs, spinach salad and half-baked cookie dessert...yummy!
Very attentive service and a beautiful setting.

We love this place and have been coming here since it was Rattlesnake just for their W.A.M. Dessert. The views are amazing the food is good and the prices are a great value. We started with two glasses of prosecco to compliment the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp cocktail was delicious! It was 4 large prawns and they were so juicy the only suggestion would be to kick up the horseradish in the cocktail sauce it was a little bland. Then the spinach salad, ok this is the one area they need to really focus on making better. The salad was pretty small and the spinach was wilted, the flavor was good but the mushrooms were overpowering and unnecessary IMO. We ordered a bottle of the Rombauer Zin great wine for a great price and it was perfect with the stuffed pork loin we shared. The pork was delicious and tender, the Demi-glaze was so savory and good. The mashed potatoes were great but the grilled vegetables need updating the presentation seemed almost like a banquet dish and did not do the food justice. Finally, we ended with the buttermilk donut with salted caramel gelato. This was really good but again, the only thing I would change is to lighten up on the cinnamon. The sugar on the donut was enough with a touch of cinnamon but this donut tasted like a churro because of the overkill of cinnamon. The salted caramel gelato was delicious and compliments the donut well but the cinnamon took away from the sweet/salty taste chef was going for. Highly recommend this place and we cannot wait to go back.

Outstanding service from an establishment's staff always does the trick for me! This place is ran marvelously. The wait staff was very accommodating for my reservation. They made my surprise birthday celebration for my wife even more special. The facilities are elegantly decorated, and the food is delish. The desserts are to die for! (Especially the donut or the cookie desserts... #yummy) They have an excellent bar staff with a wide selection of spirits to choose from. Oh, and the outdoor views during sunset... #Simplyamazing!

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband's birthday. It was especially thoughtful of the staff to bring my husband a special dessert. We'll be back soon.

Lucky for us, Weds are special 3 course prime rib dinner for under $30/person. This may have been the most tender and flavorful we have ever had. Even without the prime rib, the menu is fantastic as is the food and service. Views of golf course magnificent. Don't miss this gem!

we had a nice meal with friends and they didn't rush us which was appreciated. the view is really nice from the patio and probably the best part of our experience. the food was good but not outstanding. we had the prime rib which could have been a bit more tender and rare, scallops which were good size. the half baked cookie and ice cream which was a great way to end things. have heard that the happy hour is really good so might go back for that but probably not dinner.

We had been to Beatrix long ago when it was Rattlesnake at the Classic Club and were impressed with the setting, but not the food from a Rock Star Chef. The view is still there, and the food was sensational. My Grouper over Gorganzlo and a tuna tartar was superb. The prices are surprisingly reasonable, given the high end ambience and spectacular mountain views. Our servor was gracious and informative. Only quibble, we waited over 10 minutes for bill. Otherwise flawless. We will be back!
