Very nice dinner on an extremely windy night. Our vegans enjoyed the vegan meatloaf. Mussels were great as was the filet & the fish with saffron risotto. Portebello delicious but a bit over cooked.
Such a beautiful place & view but the wind took away some of the ambiance.

This restaurant has a beautiful view of the desert and mountains. We were here for lunch and the food is very good, but not spectacular. Sitting on the patio, the view makes it worth the trip.

Although the green golf course and tropical plants are a bit out of place in this California desert, it is undeniably beautiful and sets the stage for a relaxing evening. The food was quite good, if simply prepared; the service friendly, if a bit slow. The only fine dining choice in the area.

Although we were warned that they were “incredibly busy”, the inside dining room was empty and it still took us 20 min to put in a drink order, and over one hour to get our food. The server was very nice but not well trained. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine, which took another 15 min to get after the order. It was served warm. They didn’t have more than 6 champagne flutes, although our party was 8. Our food, when it finally came, was cold, every single dish. The temperature did not improve the taste. I would never recommend this restaurant because rather than recognizing these problems, they seemed to think that it was acceptable to premptively tell us they were busy, then never addressed the delays in beverage or food service. It was mildly pathetic, the whole experience. However it was very disappointing to pay for a cold, slow meal.

Good food alternatives are a bit of a challenge in Borrego Springs, so the al fresco lunch we had at Rams Hill was a real pleasure. The outdoor deck looks out over the entire valley, including their handsome gardens and waterfalls. The food was good, the service attentive, and the location superb. Note: Rams Hill is a good course 5-6 miles out of town - but worth the trip.!

We sat for 25 minutes with not one person coming to our table to serve. Meanwhile all other tables around us were being waited on. Not even water was brought to us. We had to ask for service. Then we waited more time. Once we did receive service we only received 2 menus for 5 people. We asked for additional menus but never received them. Had to ask for water, wine list, etc.... This is our go to restaurant in Borrego Springs. This is the first time we have had this experience.

We Had reservations for 4 pm. They do not have tables for 4 by the windows so we had to sit in a middle section. It was not busy, but the table had not been wiped down, so we had to wait for our server to do it. My sister and I ordered a hamburger medium and it came very raw on the inside. My sister sent hers back. It didn’t come again until the rest of us were done. The extra pickle had been taken off the plate, the plate was greasy, and the hamburger was still barely eatible. My Dad’s sea bass was mushy and had black meat on the bottom. We ordered the French fries extra crispy and they were very good (hence the 2 stars). I wanted a beer and had a hard time getting our server. I had to ask the hostess to get her. We had a hard time getting water refills as well. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

Clearly this was an off night for everyone. The shortribs were salty and stringy. The polenta and vegetables were smothered in the sauce for the shortribs so you couldn’t even taste them. The burger was mediocre. The fries were the only success. The staff needed lots more training... didn’t ask where we wanted to sit even though the place was practically empty and a window seat was available; brought the wrong order; brought the wrong bill, etc. It was hard to understand why this place gets good reviews.

Beautiful setting on the patio at sunset. As it gets a little cold, the server turned on the heater and offered blankets. The service was top notch, the food was wonderful, and the recommended house wine was a great value. We greatly enjoyed our meal at Rams Hill with friends, and will return every time we are in town.

Overall service was slow. Our server was good but we sat too long after ordering our wine. Then the food took a long time to be served. We asked why and the answer was the people around us were here before us. Well, we had made reservations back in November 2018 for our Valentines dinner.

Recommended by our hotel receptionist. FABULOUS view of the desert & golf course. Made reservations at 4 so we wouldn’t miss the beautiful sunset. Wished we had gone at 3 to sit on the patio for a cocktail & to have longer to enjoy the view. The food was great too. We all had the lightly grilled salmon over a bed of saffron risotto mixed with shrimp & salad. Each couple actually split a dinner & salad and was perfect. We’ll be back. Wish there was a hotel here.

Food and service were great. But was disappointed as I booked the reservation expecting to have a festive Christmas Eve dinner decorated for the holidays, but it looked like any other night. Also, the parking lot and entry of the restaurant was poorly lit (expected some sparkly lights).

This is one of our favorite restaurants & clearly the best in Borrego. However, on this occasion they missed the mark somewhat. My roasted chicken was undercooked & was returned to the kitchen to be finished. Once it was served it was acceptable. Although the manager kindly offered to compensate us for the inconvenience (which was unncecessary) it was not reflected on the final bill. As always the setting is superb. The weather was a little chilly so we dined inside--it was quiet probably because it is almost Christmas.
