    Very nice view, ambiance and service. Garlic croissant was best part of meal. Dates = underwhelming. Crab bucatini = almost no crab and flavorless. Ribeye = ordered medium rare and it came out medium well - was tough and sent back to kitchen. Burger = decent but extremely overpriced for what you got. Would not recommend this restaurant except for the view.

    Interesting steakhouse with great food, service, and views. There was a fairly loud and inappropriate music playing at all times - disco and R&B, which took away from the ambience - we had no idea why they were playing music like that!! And this restaurant is quite pricy, so don’t be shocked - dinner for 4 with only wine for two people came out to about $500 including tip.

    The food was great and the menu inspired. The outdoor setting is lovely. Our server, Jeremiah, was fun, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. My only ding, is that the cocktail we ordered had a lot of ice and not a lot of beverage. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to go there again soon.

    Fathers Day, we were hoping for the same experience we had on Mother’s Day with their buffet . I received an email about our reservation and what was to be on their menu I proceeded with a phone call to ask about the details of Father’s Day and they assured me it was going to be bigger and better than Mother’s Day with their amazing brunch buffet.! They were gracious with their apologies and claimed whoever we spoke to Provided us with misinformed information and we did not get to enjoy that experience with our guests

    Absolutely everything was amazing, from the squash blossoms, steak, drinks, dessert and our server. We questioned if our table was bugged because Jesse our server, was that good. He was on top of everything we could have wanted, had a great sense of humor and catered to our every need. Highly recommend the squash blossoms and the apple pie dessert, it was huge and not overly sweet. 11/10 recommend.

    Very disappointed with the food at this great location. The French dip had very little meat and most of it was fat. My friend was disappointed in her salad that was to include avocado but had none. (The server did bring her some to add) It was a birthday celebration and a nice dessert was served to the birthday girl. But $18 for a Tito’s and tonic and $19 for a “house” red wine made this an expensive “not good” lunch.

    Had a business dinner with some very important clients. We were seated outdoors near the golf course and had plenty of heaters to keep us warm. We arrived at 6 and left nearly 4 hours later. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere very much. On a personal note I had the ribeye steak and it was the best steak I have ever had in my life. I will be back with more clients and my family too.

    Gorgeous restaurant with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our party of four shared some appetizers which were both great, I especially loved the dates. I split the chimichurri tritip and it was SO good. We couldn’t fit in any desserts as we were all stuffed. Thank you for a great evening.

    Our 45th Wedding Anniversary and we would not spend it at any other restaurant. Every single member of the staff and management took the time to wish us a Happy Anniversary. The service was absolutely impeccable. Jessie, our waiter, could not have been more professional and accommodating! On this particular evening, the Chef offered prime rib as the special. I’ve had tons of prime rib in restaurants all over the world but nothing compared to the quality or taste of this particular piece of meat! The ambience is amazing, overlooking Batiquitos Lagoon and the 18th hole of Aviara Golf Club. If I could offer a 10 star review, I would. Ember & Rye is just that good!

    Good food, clean, friendly staff. Tuna tartar was delicious along with the mushrooms in truffle butter. The triple cooked fries were heavy and oily not so good. They had oysters with pearls on them which were frozen balls of whisterchier sauce. Overall good experience decent view i wish there were more lights out beyond the field once it got dark their was not much of a view.

    Been to Ember and Rye a few times recently and each time the food and the view have not disappointed. Really good food here — with all due respect to other chophouses or steakhouses in the area, Ember and Rye is the best in North County San Diego. The ahi tostada appetizer is always a sure win. Most recently the Chilean sea bass was superb, as was the duck breast: also notable is how the evolution of the Tomahawk Thor cut entree has progressed. Ember and Rye had really figured out how to cook the meat excellently and how to present the meat impressively.

    Great steaks cooked over an open fire. The chef Jesse was very gracious with his time - explaining the menu, his experience and cooking techniques. The "Thor's Hammer Cut" Jesse recommended was very good and the prime rib was amazing. Will definitely go back again, our entire group was very impressed with the food and setting.

    Our server was awesome. We ordered a French dip sandwich and chicken club. The Beef in the French dip was full of fat and chewy and dry. The chicken club had three layers of bread and not much chicken. Tomatoe was too thick. Our server was so nice and awesome. We have had the steak here before and it was full of white solid fat. For the price it was not acceptable.
