Great food

wonderful dinner with great food and layout that's conducive to a business meeting. Nice outdoor area and lounge with a fire pit that was packed when we left.

Went there with several friends on a Saturday night. The food is at best average. tapas good. Risotto main dish was terrible. You go for the ambiance and drinks. Service was good and attentive.

The atmosphere in the area to the right of the entrance in booths in back was nice and cozy. Enjoyed our service and the food. We went for dinner and it was solid. Drinks were mixed well...better than the hotel lobby bar.

We had read the reviews about the expense of dining here, but we were still surprised at the bill for what I would consider an ordinary dining experience at fine dining prices. The wait staff were friendly and attentive, the presentation was a bit boring and the food was nothing out of the ordinary. The price of wine by the... More

Nothing exceptional for the price of the food! The food is good, but is expensive. Try the scallops, they were very good!

My wife and I are lovers of fine food and quality experiences. We've eaten at numerous places, including Joel Robuchon in Vegas. With that said, we were not expecting that level of service on Valentine's Evening. Rather we were expecting a general Flemings / nice steak house type of meal. We base our expectations off of the price level of... More

I was impressed with the customer service here. The breads were wonderful -- the malt bread was superb, especially. I had a scallop special and my husband had short ribs which were melt-in-your-mouth awesome. There are healthy options on the menu, as well. I didn't dislike anything. The wine list was a bit odd, I will say.

We had a pleasant experience at Bluefire. We were surprised how quiet it was for a Friday evening...there might have been three other tables with diners. The service was good but not great as the server didn't know all the answers to the questions we asked her about different dishes. But was kind enough to get the Chef to help... More

This restaurant is one eatery in the La Costa Resort. I would chose this one every time. The food is well prepared and the service is excellent. It is a special place for a special occasion. We live in the area and would recommend dining here even if you aren't staying at the resort.
