    The waitstaff was on top of things and very attentive but they are clearly understaffed in the kitchen so the service was slow. I ordered a steak salad medium rare and it came well done. I’ve had much better meals here before. I assume they missed the mark because of lack of staff

    We made a reservation and were seated on time. Very good service and nice staff that managed all of our requests. We eat here often when we are in the desert and the food quality and service has remained very good even during pandemic times. Shrimp cocktail is different from others, burger is excellent as are all appetizers. Would eat the appetizers as a meal. Staff willing to explain items on menu and what to expect. So happy this place is in business.

    Great place with great atmosphere. I had the roasted barramundi and the other person had the BluEmber signature burger. The barramundi was excellent with the romesco sauce adding just the right amount of spice. The burger was also the best that we have had in the area so far. Highly recommend it.

    Let’s start off with great ambiance and friendly atmosphere - we were made to feel welcome. I guess I was confused by the menu or lack thereof because reading the menu online it sounded very inviting but in real life it appeared as a lunch menu - I even asked about the difference - what happened to all the great sounding food I read about?! Had a large ahi appetizer which was good but ended up with a salad because again - a lunch menu. I can see this as a good place for lunch not dinner

    Ambiance was great, food was great but the service was very very poor. Jose and his helper couldnt have been worse. While in the middle of our salad they brought the main course! Rarely ever have that happen. And getting either one of them's attention was impossible. The food was very good but cold by the time we finished our salads.

    Lovely setting. However, the food was just okay. Lobster roll was good but limited lobster. Truffle fries were okay. Caesar salad was skimpy at best. Little tiny store bought croutons. Chicken add on was dry. Service was good.

    Wonderful from beginning to end. I asked for outdoor seating and the hostess gave us the best table. It was closest to the lake and at a good distance from the live band. We could hear the band, but it wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t talk. The wait staff was nice and efficient. The drinks were very tasty. I had the tuna bowl which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband had the braised short ribs. He said they lean and well-prepared. The portion sizes were good. We had the take home for lunch today. We definitely would return.

    Everything thing was perfect except the difficulty of finding the restaurant using ANY of three different navigation systems AND it was impossible to contact the restaurant by phone. We persevered and we’re glad we did….the burgers and salmon special were delicious and the service superb. A noteworthy experience once we found it.

    Such a beautiful setting on the patio of BluEmber! When it gets dark, the ambiance is amazing. The music across the patio is a wonderful background sound. The food is always fantastic. I can't believe Brussel Sprouts is something so high on my list! :)
