Blossoms Chinese - El Conquistador Resort Ratings and Reviews
My daughter and I vacationed at El Conquistador. We ate at Blossoms on our first night. The staff was very friendly. The decor was dated. The dishes were plastic. The food was not good. There were no gluten free options. I am sensitive to msg and although I was assured there was none used I had an immediate migraine...immediate...it came on at the table. We ordered vegetarian delight and cashew chicken as well as vegetarian fried rice. They forget the rice. The chicken was slimey. It was a big disappointment that came with a 90.00 price tag. Skip it.
Open table needs to change their reservation option for this restaurant. They have hibachi tables and regular chinese food tables, but there is no space on the website to indicate which one you want when you get a table via open table. It drives the manager nuts!
Blossoms was okay. I read many less than favorable reviews and I hesitated to give it a try. It was our last night of vacation and we were looking for something fun and out of the ordinary. I thought Blossoms would be a nice choice because of the hibachi show. The hibachi show was okay. I got a combination of scallops and filet mignon. The scallops were delicious. The fried rice was okay, but the steak was not great. In my opinion the food was overpriced. I think I'd go there again, but only because there aren't many nearby restaurants that I'm aware of. The mixed drinks weren't great either. I do think its kind of a waste of money. The place was not very busy either. They would probably get way more customers if the food was a better value or if the hibachi shows were more exciting.
For a restaurant in a hotel of the caliber like el Conquistador, we found the overall experience disappointing. The service was the probably the best aspect of the experience. But the food was subpar - for example, the eggroll appetizer was overcokked, and the dumplings were undercooked. The ambiance and decor need a facelift, as the restaurant did not feel like a top establishment in a top hotel. The other restaurants next door (i.e., Chops) are many notches above in all aspects.
My 14-year-old daughter liked Blossoms because it was the only place within El Conquistdor resort where she could get sushi. But let's be honest: it's basically an overpriced imitation of a Chinese restaurant within a resort catering to middle American tastes. The restaurant is long on carved dragons but short on dishes that would pass muster in Hong Kong--or even New York. Also, the porcelain teacups turned out to be plastic. On the plus side, the waiters were very nice, if somewhat clueless about the menu offerings, and service was prompt.
Food was horrible and service was worse. The wait staff were pushy, rushed and taking plates away before we were finished. In fact they kept reaching over my wife while she was eating to get a plate from my son.
Out of the three restaraunts we visited at El Conquistador this was a very disappointing experience. Stingray Cafe and Chops are first rate. Blossoms is far from it.
We had the pleasure of be friending one of the bartenders at one of the bars at the resort. We should have listened to the bartender who warned us against eating at Blossoms.
From the time the hostess stepped in front of the picture that was being taken at the front of the restaurant by the hostess station I should've known that was an indication of the people working there. The waiter was always frazzled we felt rushed never relaxed we had to constantly repeat with our order or something we needed, he didn't pay much attention to us and he brought everyone's food except mine so I canceled it. He ran around as a cxhicken with s head cut off. It seemed like everyone was tensed. There was a Asian man walking around asking if people were doing well at there tables he never came to ours. When the waiter told him I canceled my meal he was upset at him. Employees were talking to each other about problems in the restaurant. On top of it all the food did not taste well ... Wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. The should take lessons from the cafe caribe downstairs they are great people.
We had a significant problem with our Open Table reservation at this restaurant. Upon arrival we had to wait for a woman who was trying to resolve reservation complications with the hostess only to then find out we had the same issue. There are two "sides" to this restaurant - the Chinese side and the Japanese side. Apparently Open Table automatically assigned us to the Chinese side. We requested hibachi, which is on the Japanese side. If you want hibachi but your Open Table reservation has you assigned to the Chinese side, you are out of luck. Best to call and make sure you are on the right "side."
We made 9pm reservations while we were on vacation in Puerto Rico. We were rushed out and the food was so incredibly overpriced. We got the Blossom Platter which was supposed to be an assortment of seafood. The platter was nothing more then a coupe shrimp, imitation crab meat, and a few scallops. Oh and did I mention the dish was $49. We were beyond disappointed with this restaurant!
We passed by this restaurant on the way to Chops steakhouse. The menu offered a good selection. We ate there Friday night, Feb 6th., 2015.
Ambiance was quiet so you could converse, service was quick and friendly, the food was delicious. I highly recommend taking the time to dine here. We had tuna roll, eel roll, and we both ordered the Hong Kong duck. Everything was very well made a extremely tasty. Probably the best meal at the resort... Although the steak at Chops was good too.
We had a great dinner at Blossoms. We ordered off the Chinese menu and sat at a table. They also have a hibachi grille which appeared more casual. The servers were extremely attentive throughout our entire dinner. We especially appreciated the vegetarian options and the way they allowed us to customize our meals. We liked it so much we plan to go back again during our stay at the resort.
Was disappointed by this restaurant. I made the reservation on open table 1 month in advance And when I arrived I was told that I was seated in the Chinese side of the restaurant
. No where on open table does it say to select the hibachi side or the Chinese side, which I explained to the hostess. She said she was unfamiliar with the online booking system and pointed to her list and said there was nothing she could do. There were others with a similar story so the hostess stand got very heated. Eventually they did their best to seat us at a hibachi table, but that was 30 mins past our reservation time and they clearly were not happy about it. The hibachi food was lack luster- no showmanship, which is half the fun, especially for my kids. I tried not to look when the chef got eggshells in the fired rice or when he swatted one of my shrimp on the edge of the grill where the 'garbage' shoot is. The clincher was that we also ordered a side of lo mein and were charged $22!!! The hotel calls this fine dining. This restaurant wouldn't last 6 months in ny. Skip it.
Whether you choose the teppanyaki option or the Chinese meal, this is a good family restaurant. The portions are generous and the food is pretty good. The service is very attentive and they aim to please. They also have a nice kids menu that has a nice variety.
