Their Dueling Piano Show is absolutely Fantastic, We have been to almost every single one with family, friends and Clients.

Don't waste your time! Quite possibly the worst dining experience of my life! After being seated we waited another 20 minutes before going back to hostess stand to see if we could get a server. Both heaters by our table were broken. We had 2 meals come out and then about another 10 minutes later the other two came out. Final straw was the single most disgusting cheeseburger I have ever tasted, so bad I actually spit it out. To be clear, this has never happened to me before.. I didn't know it was possible to not like a burger!

It was okay. Service was pleasant, but slow at the end of our meal. Cocktails are over-priced and not generous for the price, but it is a hotel and that is a given in San Diego. Food was good, but again, over-priced. I probably will not eat here again in order to spend $ on cocktails in out dancing for the evening.

My friends and I enjoyed a beautiful Sunday brunch here, prior to playing a round a golf. We sat outdoors and were presented with a more than gorgeous view of the course while sipping perfectly made mimosas. Our server was very attentive and explained the menu options in a surprisingly artistic way. I also recall the female bartender welcoming us with a warm hello, with her hands cusped behind her back, as he walked us out to our table. She had even sent our table a free mojito to enjoy as she had been 'practicing' a new concoction. This gesture sealed the deal! As for our meals, each of us ordered the eggs benedict - outstanding! The hollandaise sauce was enriched with chili spices and was absolutely delicious. There is no doubt we will be returning! This is a special spot to say the least.

I had a reservation for Mother's Day I booked ahead of time but when I got there they had no table ready we had to wait and wait for someone to get us a table when we did it was the worst table you could have. I asked if we could switch tables 21 people had departed from but they said they were saving it for a party of four as we were a party of three. The gentleman went and asked the manager if that would be OK and he came back finally but we were standing in the middle of the restaurant and said OK. The sheets were wet so obviously someone with a baby fit on headset on the cushion so my beautiful clothes got wet there was food all under my chair and on my chair when I sat down and then we had to wait another 10 to 15 minutes just to get a waitress to come over and ask us for drinks and then she had to leave to go get an order and came back finally and took our order. The food took a long time to get but it was very good it was my Mother's Day after all we had to put up with you would've thought they would've given me a glass of champagne but honestly I wouldn't go back there for a special occasion or maybe even ever go back there I thought the service was not what it should be for a five-star hotel and I honestly was very disappointed that on Mother's Day they did not have the tables preset and ready to go For those who had made reservations way in advance.

We came here for an Easter brunch. I will say this right off the bat, the food was absolutely delicious. I was disappointed because of the service. At a "5 star" resort, I would expect it to be better. We ordered an appetizer and the waiter never put that in, brought out our food, and we asked where it is. He was like "oh yeah...." I just said nevermind. No apology, nothing. Then my husband and I ordered the same thing. I took one item off my food but my husband said leave his as is described on the menu. Well, when he got his sandwich, they didn't put everything on the way that he asked. So for a place that describes itself as "5 star resort" they ought to have their waiters do a better job.

My overall experience was really good. I had two issue; 1: We were asked to move to another table once we sat down and ordered our drinks (we chose to stay where we had been seated); 2: The kids that the adults allowed to run around the tables without their shoes, screaming, and taking items from the buffet with their hands.

The mac and cheese was crazy dry. The iced tea wasn't good, maybe order from a new vendor. We were glad that you had a gluten free bread option for the burger but the burger was pretty bland. The fries had a perfect amount of salt. The bacon wrapped dates were the best thing we had, on point. The cauliflower appetizer was pretty scarce, very small portion and not impressive. A very forgettable meal

Nice venue, part of the Fairmont Grand Del Mar property, and they even offer complimentary return golf cart shuttle service to the restaurant which is a short distance away from the main hotel. Great views of the lush property. Casual upscale fare, great for lunch and for families.

Our party of four enjoyed our meals. The food was perfectly prepared, inventive and tasty. It was a little on the high side price wise (BLT for $28!) and had too thick bread, but it tasted great (I only ate one side of bread with it) and the server was excellent.

The fish & chips, chips and french fries were very good as was their cappuccino!

Club M used to be a good place to dine outside with a good, but less expensive menu. We went there for Valentine's Day and for $75 each we had scant and mediocre meals and had to share one small, unremarkable dessert. The music outside was way too loud, which the manager had lowered for us. This place is trying to be a five-star "happening hot spot" but it falls short. Nice ambiance but no substance or value.

I can't speak for the food, but we got up and left after sitting there for 15 minutes without as much as a glance from any of the staff. It can be forgiven if they were super busy and you get some type of contact letting them know they'll be with you in a minute, but the place was not that busy.

I've been to Addison numerous times and have always received superb service, so maybe we caught them on a bad day..

We've been going to Club M for over 2 years now and usually have a good time, good service and good food. Last night we had none of these things. Despite the heat, the AC in the main room was non-existent and was extremely uncomfortable. Service was terrible -- for the last 2 hours our waitress (and any other waitstaff) was MIA and we were left high and dry, and unable to order food or drink. When I went to the bar to get water, they gave me a glass of room temperature water, with no ice. When we were finally able to track down our bill, we discovered that I was charged for doubles, when in fact I only had 2 single pour drinks...and weak ones at that. We'll give it one more try (the band was great), but if this is how Fairmont is going to treat their guests after taking over the resort, then we'll take our business elsewhere.

Don't order the chicken and waffles unless you are a big fan of hot, on fire peppers! I ordered this dish a couple of months ago and it was fine. Apparently a new cook decided to set it on fire. It was inedible and I had to send it back. That's never pleasant. Atmosphere is very nice, but be careful to ask about peppers- not something I would expect at breakfast.

The tables next to the dance floor is arranged too closely with the tables behind them. I am assuming that they want to open up space as an alley for people to walk around or even stand around. But, that is why the reservation is required for. I think for people with reserved table should not feel suffocated or hostile by other people in the rear row of tables who are demanding to move my seat for them to pass through to walk to the dancing floor. The manager should be aware of how inconvenient this close table arrangements between the first row and second row of tables next to the dancing area cause people from think twice about making the reservation again in the club.
