Sweetfire Kitchen - La Cantera Resort and Spa Ratings and Reviews
The resort was extremely accommodating to us. I needed a wheelchair for my broken foot, requested a room for our family of four close to all of the activities and restaurants due to being on crutches and a room with a view of the fireworks show -- all granted by the friendly and empathic staff. The Kids Club rocked! The kids roasted marshmallows and made s'mores while my hubby and I dined at the famous Signature restaurant. Shuttles ran frequently. Sweet fire restaurant online reservation system was user friendly; wait staff conscientious of my son's food allergies. The holiday decor was tasteful and gorgeous to look upon. New Year's eve bar staff provided my husband and I with complimentary champagne for our anniversary! We will return and recommend always!
The ambience is great. We dined there after the Christmas tree lighting.
However My major criticism stems with the family value Christmas dinner or lack there of. There was NOT enough food for a table of five! One medium plate of vegetables that allowed for a tablespoon per each diner !
Therefore The value of the dinner at 22 dollars per head was terrible.
The waitress should have explained the concept better which would have allowed us to forfeit on the idea. I was very disappointed with the dinner.
The food was great. It was the terrible service we had an issue with. We had our two children with us, so we were on the clock. After being seated for close to 15 min, I had to get out of my chair to grab our waiter and tell him we were ready to order. I guess he forgot he sat us earlier. We had to go to the bar to get out drinks, and after our food was served, our waiter was never to seen again. After our meal, we had told the kids we would go ahead and get them dessert. About 15 more min went by, and I assume it was the manager who swung by and just dropped off the bill. Didn't ask if we needed anything else, or how the meal went. I assumed they just wanted us out so we left without dessert. To top it off, I left a 10% tip on a $160 tab. Really should have been closer to 4% so they could at least cover the tip out.
Several very good items to choice from for main course. Side dishes were good to very good. Good presentation of deserts. However taste was just ok. This was their thanksgiving dinner. Turkey was moist. Sweet potato casserole and squash soup were excellent. Large scrimp were fresh. Mash potatoes were fair. Crepes were ok.
Went for Sunday lunch. The service was friendly but not exceptional. Had to wait just a bit too long between courses. The food was average. The dessert was very good.
There was litter all over the floor under the tables and crumbs on seats. For a restaurant at a high class resort this is not acceptable!
We wanted to dine at La Cantera resort rather than having to drive to an off site restaurant. We asked for a table with a view and were seated in a dining room near the pool but the blinds were down due to the sun exposure ( even at 7pm). The dining area had two TV's showing sports programs. The restaurant is pricy and we expected a little more atmosphere for a quiet dinner. We ordered wine ( they have a good selection) and filet mignon. It was cooked medium and very tasty. Service was a little slow considering the restaurant was not overly busy. Dinner for two with wine and steak cost $140.
Great experience! Chef came out to talk with me and cooked me a great Paleo friendly meal! He listened to my needs and was very kind! Our waiter was also very sweet! I was at the hotel for an MS educational conference with Clay Walker! Sweetfire Kitchen was apart of an awesome overall evening!
Food was fair and overpriced cold and service was horrible. I felt like I was on a work lunch break. the server right off the bat was "bored" cause he did not have customers..Well if you rush them out in 30 mins like some truck stop diner. Doh.Would not recommended this place at all.
This was our second Mother's Day Brunch. We came back for the food and ambiance. While the ambiance is still very nice, as is the food, it was not superb as it was last time. In 2015, every dish wowed me. This time, not so much. Several of the choices were simply uninspiring. For about $100 per person, for brunch, I expect to be wowed. As I was not, I'll not return.
This was our first visit to SweetFire Kitchen and we were beyond impressed. I had the short rib with crawfish mac & cheese and my husband had the ribeye (med rare) with fries. Every single bite was incredible. Karl was our server; he was very attentive but not overbearing. He also surprised my husband with a very sweet birthday dessert which was also to die for and very much appreciated. Overall, we loved our visit and will definitely be back.
The restaurant was understaffed and the food was mediocre. While staying at the resort, we ate there twice. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. On both occasions, we had to get up from the table after waiting 10-15 minutes and go find a staff member to take our order. When it was time to leave, we had to do the same thing to get a check. We love La Canterra resort, but really wish they would work on the quality of the food at their restaurants and ensure the restaurants are adequately staffed so that guests have an attentive and pleasant experience.
We very much enjoyed the food -- though the desserts were a bit of a disappointment. Still, I'd return to the restaurant. My entree, Shrimp and Grits, was terrific even though it came after everyone else's, apparently because it had been burned the first time. Our waiter could have been much more attentive. I had a very chipped water glass that took some time to get a replacement for. Our used dishes weren't cleared until we asked for them to be cleared. We weren't kept up to date on the progress of our food -- especially when I didn't get mine and had to ask what happened to it.
