Nice place. Quiet. Food is very good especially the veggie pot pie and the Thai flavored sea bass. Prices are a little high, but it’s Rancho Santa Fe...

This was all based on a quiet table in the bar area

Food was wonderful!! The Green Curry Chilean Seabass was amazing! Would love the recipe! The only downside where we were sitting outside was over near their pool they store their tables and things for parties and they were making so much racket! Not the norm but a problem for us.

My husband and I love it here!! We had dinner on the patio with our dog one night (super dog friendly) and breakfast here one morning.

For dinner - we both had the braised short ribs and our dishes were a 10! Tons of flavor and a beautiful presentation. Dutch was our server and could not have been nicer and charming! Both he and Connor took care of us all evening. Incredible food and service all around. A beautiful ambiance well as over-looking their lovely grounds.

For breakfast - we both ordered the Huevos rancheros. Yum!! Can’t go wrong with their breakfast (or brunch) menu. Our server Mitch was a delight and also added to our amazing experience here.

We will be back!

We loved our martini Basel Crisp and the scallops. The duck breast was rare and superb.

There was a really obnoxious, obviously drunk woman in the bar speaking very loudly and singing along the woman who was entertaining. We were sitting all the way on the other side of the dining room but could still hear her VERY clearly. We asked to move outside because it was ruining our date. The waiter was very kind and said we could. The food runner brought our entrees out at the same time as our salad, which was kind of a bummer. The waiter fixed it and brought out new entrees later on (at least he said they were new). The food was pretty good (short rib and chicken). The waiter was nice and attentive.

Disappointed by a basic breakfast that was overpriced and had potatoes that were not tasty. Service was excellent and the setting was beautiful. I did not get my money’s worth.

Morada never disappoints. We love coming here for relaxing weekend meals and special occasions in the beautiful terrace.

Not worth the expense, and the restaurant is dated and food, aside from the bread, rather bad.

I don’t understand why this restaurant can’t expand their menu. The site is beautiful, the food is good, but the options on the menu are very limited. We were there with a large group and the older couple couldn’t find anything they liked on the menu. Although we’re local we don’t go there much because their menu is very limited.

We went to Moradoa with our family members that recommended it. The restaurant is part of the inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the ambience of the hotel was very cozy. Unfortunately, our dining experience did not live up to expectations. Albeit we were a group of 9, we waited over an hour to get our meals - which were luke-warm burgers, and an under cooked pork chop. (I also overheard smaller tables complaining about the wait as well). Our waiter was fantastic and very apologetic about the situation - discounting a portion of our bill. Kudos to him for recognizing a poor customer experience, and trying to make it right.

The food was a buffet. All dried out. Meat was terrible. Vegetables were worse. Shrimp and salad bar were fine. The Desert bar was as well. It was a lot of money for extremely average food. We stayed st the Inn and hat experience was very good. Just bad food. Not up to the standards of a Starwood property

The food here is great. Unfortunately, the Christmas Eve service was slow as they got my reservation for an inside table wrong and wanted us to be outside. This caused us to wait for 30 minutes.

Disappointing. We were seated outside at first on a cold night we would have rather been inside. I love the patio for lunch but for dinner we would have liked to be seated indoors. Sorry the hostess said can't do a table indoors but there are heaters. Well both my husband and I were cold. We decided to stick it out. 15 minutes later and no greeting or water we decided it was going to be a looong night on a cold patio. Having driven from La Jolla for reservations we contemplated going somewhere in Del Mar. We decided to make it known that we had not been greeted or offered water yet. Ridiculous.
We told the hostess AGAIN we would wait in
the bar area for a table. Then what did they do? They seated us at a bar table. Ok.
Service was ok. Salad came out with our drinks. Forever later our entrees came.

What I ordered was not what came to the table. I ordered the vegetable green curry. What I got was a subpar soup that the guy said was the "setup" to the sea bass minus the sea bass. Seriously that's how he described it. My husband said his duck was just ok.
We ordered dessert. The best part of the night was the live entertainment. Otherwise this place was very disappointing. Good for lunch and happy hour awful for a nice dinner.
Next time we come to RSF we will stick to Veladora at Rancho Valencia where everything is A++++

The outdoor seating with a view of the beautiful, serene grounds deserves 5 stars. My daughter and I had enjoyed drinks and appetizers while watching the sun set a few weeks ago and we were eager to try their brunch. However, the menu had limited options and the food was just okay.
