Servers adequate not friendly. Menu the same each day,apparent chefs specials never revealed. Most menu selections more suitable for lunch. No bread offered. Servers undercharged or forgot wine or drinks on the bill, not good for business. Pool beverage service very poor. No room service menu available.

The German cheese appetizer was fabulous! The menu offers a wide variety of entrees and salad choices. We will be back!

Expensive for poor quality food and service. The staff may need some more training in customer service. Horriable experience. Would not recommend this place. I hear the brunch is good, but we will never find out as we will never go back to this restaurant.

IWe had dinner Sunday night, two of us.Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We started with the ceaser salad which was delicious.I ordered the scallops, the presentation was good and the food excellent. My husband had the tri-tip. The flavor of the tri-tip was fantastic but a little on the salty side . The side of ranch beans with his dinner were undercooked.

Lovely dining room. Acceptable service but no one is friendly. Food is well prepared but overpriced. Guess that's what you get when you're the only show in town.

This was my first time back to the Butterfield Room since it reopened. We were seated by Dee a very competent and welcoming hostess. We ate out on the patio which was lovely. The service was a little slow but I would rather have that as opposed to being rushed. We enjoyed a bottle of the house wine and it was very reasonably priced. The food was very good. The chef had no problem accommodating my request for something not listed on the menu. The server was pleasant and very competent. This is by far the best restaurant in Borrego Springs. We enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back.

The new Zorro is back and performing well===Great food[Kit fox salad with avocado and dates was a smash==1/2 portion was more than enough--Scallops were fresh and tasty] ==Excellent service == the Terrace is very nice, if weather permits ----I would have awarded * , except for the wine selection. VERY ordinary supermarket selections, with exorbitant pricing !!!!!! == Best to bring a bottle from the cellar, and pay the fair corkage of $15.00.===J.

This has been a favorite restaurant for many years…And the re-opening has made us very happy. We were delighted with everything and hope the restaurant and resort continues in the same wonderful way.

We love La Casa - but this night they were severely understaffed. After 20 minutes of waiting to place a beverage order, I went to the bar and got our drinks myself. Don't most restaurants have people on call for those nights when they are unexpectedly busy?

Food mostly great except rice so undercooked it was actually crunchy.

My girlfriend and I had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night. Your results may vary..
We're by no means restaurant or food snobs, and we rarely dine at such a nice establishment...
When we approached the hostess stand, all she said was, "reservation?". I was expecting a greeting at the least. There was no other talk, as she just grabbed menus and we followed her to the table. The place was busy, but all the tables weren't full. One of the waiters was almost running around. Our salads came out at different times, which we found odd. Then there was a really long gap until our food came. No one asked how the food was or how we were doing. The staff was very quiet. We enjoyed our food, however.

Very glad that La Casa Del Zorro is open once again. Ambiance was missed!

Food was excellent, had a corner secluded table so atmosphere was super. Went for a early seating, thus less noise and more intimate. The price per couple was over the top, but since a special day and celebration, didn't mind. Service was excellent and wine list complete. Personal attention by the chef was a bonus.

The Butterfield Room is not to miss if you are in or passing through Borrego Springs. We went for an early Valentine's Day dinner and were blown away by the food (macadamia crusted halibut was delicious!). It's nice to have a fine dining option available in Borrego Springs. Will definitely dine there again sometime soon!

My husband and I have eaten here twice since they reopened. Good selection of appetizers and salads with small but good variety. The diver scallop main course were expertly prepared and the staff was able to give me extra vegetables and removing the mashed potatoes. Changes did not appear to be a problem for them, very willing to alter the selection. The Cambozola (Camembert and gorgonzola) cheese appetizer is delicious but VERY rich, good to be shared for 2 or more. We were very satisfied with dinner but since it was my husband's birthday, we ordered the salted caramel cheesecake to take...they graciously gave it to us for free...even added a candle for him!

The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back soon.

Impressive effort for a Borrego Springs location. Food was definitely above average. You pay a premium but you are in the middle of the desert. Filet was excellent, small proportions but worth the price. Wine list was a bit limited. We had a party of 10 and each couple brought a bottle. The $15 corkage fee seemed reasonable all things considered. They did not balk at 5 bottles! This is the best restaurant in Borrego hands down.

Good food; nice ambience sitting at a table by the fireplace; the timing of our food service was off a bit, but it could have just been a busy night.
