    Ojo Caliente is an excellent spa and resort. I feel grateful that there is a friendly and hospitable restaurant here too. Service is slow, but considering the struggle to employ these days, I can understand that. I also am not staying here for a rushed time so I am grateful to have the luxury to wait for my meal. The food is good! Not 5 star, but definitely tasty and I LOVE that some of the ingredients are fresh from their own farm and everything seems seasonally appropriate!

    Delicious early dinner after an afternoon of soaking! Scottish Salmon was moist & seasoned just right. Pork tenderloin was not quite as tender as I’d imagined, but nestled atop a bed of whipped sweet potatoes. Both entrees came with sautéed bokchoy. We shared a kale salad, properly blended with lemon oregano vinaigrette and dried cherries. Complimentary blue corn mini muffins are served at start of meal. Service by Sue was top notch! Dinner on-site is quite good, but the menu feels limited; I wish some of the lunch items were available at dinnertime. Breakfast the next morning was first rate! My companion had a relleno with eggs & hash browns; the poblano was stuffed — not breaded & not fried — yielding delicious pepper flavor. I had a single egg, hash browns & toast. Other breakfast options were enticing! The restaurant prices are a little high, but it’s resort dining. This restaurant takes advantage of its on-site garden and serves its clientele well. Be sure to make reservations to avoid waiting unnecessarily.

    Service was poor. Had to ask for appetizers plates, dishes to be cleared, and more water. Never asked if we would like more beer which we purchased one round. When asked the waiter what the frozen herbed butter was he asked if we wanted it microwaved so soften it.

    It was hard to decide what to order, every thing looked wonderful! We were so pleased to start with fabulous gluten free blue corn muffins. The tortilla soup was wonderful and may need to be a full bowl next time. With no way to take leftovers home, I finally separated the pasta from the sauce and spooned up all the delicious tomato sauce. I was stuffed and too full for dessert but every morsel was heavenly. The kale salad with chicken also got raves. And breakfast was equally enjoyable.

    We had the vegetarian chili rellinos. Very creative dish served with a quinoa tamale which was very good. The tamale offset the spicy green chili with red sauce. The service was excellent. Overall a very nice eating experience.

    The food was great. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked with a gentle seasoned sauce. My husband had ceviche- he said, “not as good as in Peru”. 🤷🏻‍♀️ We shared the tiramisu - large portion and delish. The waiter was friendly and fast but didn’t hover. The atmosphere was congruent with the overall Ojo C vibe.

    Being held captive at the resort my meal was roughly as expected. Overcooked pork with minimal flavor. The "bar" menu has beer and wine, but no alcohol (e g. No tequila, whiskey, vodka, etc).

    The tortilla soup was delicious, probably the best I've ever had. The scallops were pretty good as well, not at the same level as that tortilla soup though. Sadly the restaurant still seemed pretty understaffed due to the pandemic, but with that said, our service was still pretty good and we were happy with what we ate, not the best but not bad either. The water tasted like sulfur though, so that was a little unpleasant. We also enjoyed being able to walk to breakfast in the morning in our casual wear, they encourage guests to come in their robes, ready for the pools, which created a nice and relaxed vibe.

    Given that your restaurant is the ONLY option unless people bring in their own food, I was disappointed overall in the experience. First of all, there is not enough staff to support more than a few diners. Second, the hotel rooms have no fridges for leftovers and the servings vary widely in quantity. Third, wait staff need more training, from how to pronounce "chamomile" to not telling (other diners, didn't happen to us) someone who's waited 30 minutes for a beverage, "I'll see if the bar has time." Uh, no, those ladies were forgotten several times by wait staff and were angry. What you say is, "I'll get that for you immediately. And take it off your bill." Out of three servers, our first one (a young man whose name I don't remember but he was a waiter on Friday night and the bartender on Saturday Sept 17.) was fabulous, if overworked (too many tables to have time to come check with us). The morning of the 17th, the waitress forgot spoons (we had coffee and tea) and had to be reminded several times to BRING the tea. And the restaurant was out of tea bags. I had brought my own, but she forgot the hot water. On and on. The second morning, Sunday, our waitress was far more experienced and professional - but she forgot sugar (for our coffee and tea) twice, so I kept swiping it from other tables. I just expect more from a place that charges what yours does than to train the wait staff meal by meal on basic service skills, and we observed far worse at other tables. Shameful.

    I love Ojo Caliente! My husband and I have been twice now. I picked this the first time and my husband agreed but wasn't too sure about it. After the first trip, he wanted to go back! He chose this as our anniversary trip this time! He wanted the peace and quiet that Ojo offers. He loves the Posi Suites with the private hot tube. The massage's we chose were unbelievably good! We absolutely loved them! We will visit again!

    Do not eat here. Barely passable service, low value for dollar dinner plates. I ordered an enchilada casserole that wasn’t as good as an Amy’s frozen enchilada from the grocery store. My wife’s fajitas were a little better but we’re still lacking. The hot springs are a delight and will bring me back but I won’t be eating in the restaurant again.

    Our waitress felt like she had no training in "fine" service, like the service one would get in a diner. When paying higher prices for a Good Meal, service is very much a part of the experience. I was less than happy, not impressed, and dissatisfied with the service. The food was Good but not Wowing. I would say after a very nice soak in the Hot Springs, if your very hungry, it is a nice and convenient choice, but if able to go elsewhere for a very nice dinning experience you would probably have a better time. The springs are always great, especially in the middle of the week when less crowded and lower rates to get in.

    Solo dining experience - was given a great seat by the window. Attentive and thoughtful service throughout. Dinner special was halibut and was perfectly prepared - a real treat for dining in the desert! I have stayed at Ojo several times and have frequented this restaurant- they really have scaled up the menu. Two giant thumbs up!

    This review is ONLY for the Artesian Restaurant, as it’s the reservation made through Open Table. We chose the night’s specials. The truffle cream linguine was fantastic, filled with wild mushrooms and greens. The chicken I requested on it was tasteless and dry. My husband’s medium rare ribeye special came out medium and tougher than typical for the cut. Disappointing considering the plates came at a premium higher than most of the on-menu choices. Service was slow and we had to flag him down to take our second drink orders, water refills, and the check. Breakfast the next morning was phenomenal. The blue corn pancakes were soft and packed with pine nuts. The avocado toast was divinely fresh and worth raving over. Service again left much to be desired. You would have thought paying cash was the biggest inconvenience on the planet (and everything took forever). Prices weren’t horrific considering it’s the only place to eat in the area, and the food was overall good enough to ease the sting. The lunch menu looked amazing. The wine bar has additional options, but the drinks are overpriced for the serving size and the sangria was meh. Overall, I’d go back if staying at the resort again (which we plan to), but now we know to charge the room for meals and expect long wait for okay service.

    The three of us traveling together voted this the best meal of our 10-day trip and one of the best meals of 2022. The mussels were fantastic -- we asked for more bread to soak up the wonderful sauce. The red and green sauces with my scallops were amazing. My daughter voted her pasta as the best dish of pasta she'd ever had. Overall this was one fantastic meal. The blue corn pancakes the next morning were killer, too!
