We visited on our last night at the resort to celebrate our 20th anniversary. From start to finish our meal was fabulous-the bureaus was delicious and my husband loved the porchetta. Our entrees (seafood diablo, pork saltimboca) were both excellent. Our son had two appetizers for his entree-seafood Liston and cannelloni bean soup. All were delicious. The desserts were amazing- the rocky road is a must. We were also surprised with a cheesecake for our anniversary. Our waiter Eli went above and beyond throughout our entire meal. He even brought out the pastry chef Miguel who was so sweet and took incredible pride in his work and was so very humble. A must visit!

Food was great. Device was terrible. A large group came into the restaurant and our table became invisible and received no service. We left the restaurant without getting a check.

Birthday event for my daughter. Service was amazing the ambience was unchanged from the 10 years we've been going there. I must repeat that the team was great and service was outstanding but the food was overpriced and menu was limited. Overall we had a great night with friends and family.

The ravioli plate was so small, but yet the chicken parm was huge. dinner for 4 with dessert, but no drinks was $200. It was only worth about $120-140. The food was tasty, but just not worth the price compared to other restaurants.

They need more wait staff and more experienced managers. We literally saw a family get up and leave due to poor service. Another family was livid. We were not happy either. This was our second attempt at this restaurant- the first time they wanted to seat us a a table with a sopping wet seat cushion!! When we said no they said "well just all sit on one side of the table"... horribly inexperienced door person made that call.
Food wasn't bad, not great- not up to the level of the others at this resort. It's a shame, it's a pretty place in a premo location on the property.

Service was ridiculously slow. Did not have enough wait staff working. Ambience was terrible.

I wish I had read the other recent reviews before booking this restaurant because I agree with the low ratings given by other diners. We visited the El Conquistador resort for 6 days, and of all of our dinners at the various different restaurants, this was by far the worst and I would not recommend it. The staff clearly does not have their act together. As an example, for my appetizer I ordered the frisee salad with raspberries. While my family all got their appetizers, I waited approximately 15 minutes for my salad to arrive and had to ask 2 staff members before it was brought to me. When it arrived, I was given a salad composed of rotting, slimy spinach with old looking strawberries and a weird white dressing drizzled on top. It was disgusting. I sent it back and asked for it to be taken off of the bill (which it was) but there were no explanations or apologies given by the staff. I've never in my life had an experience like that at a fine dining restaurant! It was completely unacceptable. The entrees were not terrible -- my son really liked the chicken parmesan. But overall, I would say go anywhere else for dinner at the El Conquistador except for this restaurant.
