"Celebrated my husband's birthday here, after a spa at the adjoining hotel, and the dinner was delicious. Lovely evening setting outside, if weather permits and it usually does. Excellent food, moderately expensive, but not overly so."

"Came here for an afternoon outdoor lunch. Patio dinning was great with view of the course. Service was taxing and rather slow considering the number of servers present. Ordered the Mahi Mahi Taco's and a Ahi salad dish. Both were very good."

"The food was nicely prepared: I had the Osso Buco and my husband had the Turkey dinner. The meats were excellent as were the mashed potatoes and yams. The only caveat would be the vegetables: They were hard and not tasty. I would suggest substituting cooked green beans or zuchinni but with nice seasonings (not crunchy, please)."

"We were hoping that since the Omni bought the hotel out that that the food would have changed too. But, unfortunately that was not the case. I wanted to stay on site instead of having to drive to dinner so we thought we would try again. The food lacked taste. There was nothing good to say about any of our meal at all. I would not eat there again for any reason. The service was OK also and we were the only ones in the restaurant when we ate since it was a 5 pm reservation."

"Have been there many times before but this time was bad. The food was slow to cime out and when it did it was not hot. Had to be aent back. The bread basket used to be great and they completely changed it and not good. Service was mediocre even though it was almost empty. For a nice location and high prices not worth it."

"Monty our server was very friendly and offered great service.
We just had their breakfast buffet twice.
The first time we went there despite our reservation we did have to wait longer than expected. I thought that we would be seated immediately, which was not the case.
The strawberry yoghurt was very fresh. The granola was very good.
There were the following dishes: bacon, potatoes, sausages, french toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, granola, yoghurt(very fresh!), some fruit(peeled grapefruit, watermelon were the best), toast, bagels and omelettes.

"Blue Ember is known for its brunches; we booked for Father's Day for brunch and were extremely disappointed to find out when we got there, they were not having they're typical extravagant bruch. Instead it was minimal.
Poor communication, poor brunch, poor execution."

"We enjoyed the restaurant week menu, although the regular menu also looked good. The best salad was excellent. Great pork chop. Tasty fresh halibut. Fabulous panna cotta. Wines were very well priced with a large selection. Highly recommend this restaurant but definitely ask for outdoor seating."

"Jeremy was a delight to have as our server; he was friendly, cheerful, and knew the menu well. The watermelon, tomato, and kumquat salad was a real treat."

""Blu Ember" is my usual choice to meet folks for lunch, either for business or pleasure. The Rancho Las Palmas Resort is beautiful any time of the year and the beautiful vistas from Blue Ember across the planted flower beds and golf course are an ideal place for a relaxing meal. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. You can't go wrong with planning a meal at Blu Ember!"

"Steak was rare not medium rare. Butter on steak had jalapeños which was not indicated on menu. Potato leek soup was good as was the dessert"

"bluEmber is located at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas resort, so if you local to the area, remember your stepping into a "on vacation" mindset from the other guests that you will be sat near. Food was spot on, the Prix Fixe menu offered a very good variety. Service was timely and polite. Both the halibut and Kubota pork chop entrees were prepared very well. I felt the cocktail prices were about $3.00 overpriced but prepared correctly. Not sure if they offer happy hour prices, but something to ask about. Based on the food, I would definitely return. Only con, they sat us near a party of 20 people - half were children under 7. A little too much chaos for a dinner meal."

"We live just a few mes from this beautiful spot. Having been there many times last year with great food and terrible service, we took a break from Blu Ember. But it was my wife's birthday and she wanted to go there.
Unfortunately $250. Plus later, we both agreed. The service waste ally improved, all parts of our meal was terribly over cooked and the lovely small bands have been replaced by a solo canned musician.
Sorry!! We were so looking forward to it .

"We were celbrating a special birthday and while we found the food to be excellent we found the ambience distracting by all the little kids running to and fro with food plates etc. Parents who didn't and the noise level extreme so we couldn't hear the music. It was very disappointing. Iv'e been there before and had a great time so it was my recommedation for this dinner."
