Food was ok, not really worth the price they are charging. Was very dark, hard to see my food. Waiter was nice and fairly attentive. I would not eat there again, mainly because it is 30-40% overpriced.

Yuri was an amazing server! It was my husband and my wedding anniversary and from the moment we walked in we were met with excellent service! They set up a table in our own little room, and everyone who helped was kind and attentive! We had the best meal and will be back!

Food had this nasty after taste to it. My waiter ignored me and my family to the point that another waiter had to check on our desserts and bring us coffee and the check. The food was cold. The coffee was served in a cup with some one else’s food stuck on the inside of the mug. I left feeling very sick to my stomach. I will never dine at this establishment again.

We had reservations for 5 pm-one of the first there. I don’t understand why we were seated in front patio area with stools. When I asked to sit in side patio I was told it was booked. I insisted & was seated in side area. When We left our area was half full. Rest of experience was great.

Food was terrific. Although we had a reservation it took us a half hour to get seated even though the tables around us were totally empty. Very snotty and rude hostess stand.

Took Grandchildren (2.5 & 4) to Pumpkin @Fairmont. Beautiful and very enjoyable. Ride area a little too crowded and crazy but 4 year old was able to go on her first ride.
Ending the night at La Hacienda at one of the outside tables was perfect! They accommodated us a little earlier than our actual reservation so we were served at a little bit of a slow pace but Will explained and made us feel welcomed and relaxed.

Was a little upsetting. It was my friends bday and I let them know. When we got there they said happy birthday but no candle no anything to make it special. The desserts were so awful that none of us took more than a bite. Service was absolutely terrible. 3-4 times we thought our waiter forgot that we were there. The food was very good. Ambiance very nice. Unfortunately I don’t think it will be on the top of our list to go back.

We were on our honeymoon and we definitely enjoyed ourselves for dinner here. The tequila goddess was very knowledgeable and helped us pick out the perfect tequila fight for us to share. The food was delicious and we are so glad we were there for the lamb shank special! Wow! What a dish!

We had a lovely dinner. Nice ambiance with romantic lighting and atmosphere. Food was top notch, the Smoked Port cocktail and Tequila flight were great. Staff was knowledgeable of the tequila and food options and our service was excellent. We came back for dinner a couple days later as well.

May have been one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The Fairmont was hosting some sort of Halloween event and the entire area was chaotic. I was expecting a romantic dinner and instead I felt like I was at a cross between a Chucky Cheese and Hooters having been seated by two large tables with screaming toddlers and a table with a bachelorette party. In addition, food was very marginal. Not what I expected from a supposedly high end and definitely expensive restaurant. The only saving grace was our waiter. He was very nice and responsive.

The food was wonderful! Our server was very nice. We waited a really long time for appetizers though, we got them and a moment later got our food. The food itself was delicious but a little expensive. Unfortunately, everything at the Fairmount is just overpriced but the restaurant itself was beautiful and the food was great!

$18 is way too much for a children’s taco (1) and about 15 French fries .. then $5 on top of that for a Coke. Just too inflated right now.

The appetizers we had were outstanding as were the cocktails. The smoke peach was the best cocktail I’ve ever had. My husbands fajitas weren’t as impressive as everything else but overall we really enjoyed our experience.

The service from the moment we came into the restaurant until we left was excellent. The front desk hosts were friendly, and our server was knowledgeable and professional.
We took advantage of a 3 course meal. We started with fresh made guacamole, squash blossom quesadilla and mixed green salad. Our entrees were mixed grill and the braised pork shoulder. Every dish was plentiful and delicious. We emjoyed a 2nd meal of it the next day with all of the leftovers.

Went early, right after they ope, so it was quiet and not crowded. First time there. Not easy to get to the self parking lot of the hotel, as everything is blocked. Fortunately, there was a guy that showed us the way and let us in. Food was good, BIG portions, but one order was wrong, maybe due to bad communication because of muffled mask protocol. Not good. Birthday celebration came with a huge slice of bad and moist cake. Yuk. Would probably go again if easier to get to. Don't like valet parking.

This is by far my favorite place to have a nice relaxing dinner. They make my favorite filet in the valley that I've had so far. The service is stupendous and the experience is exceptional.
