Great view

Enjoy fresh food with a gorgeous view. Service is hit and miss but usually good. Food is good but menu is limited. If you don't appreciate trolling kids screaming and running about with their indulgent parents too drunk to notice or too indulgent to care, don't eat here. If that doesn't bother you... read more

Loved the sea bass but the steak looked great too. The staff was great. The outdoor area seemed to be a good spot for kids since they couldn't be too loud.

Unmemorable but I know the food was good. The service staff seemed in the weeds with large tables but it did not adversely affect us.

The BlueFire Grill is really the only fine dining option at La Costa. We weren't going to try it, but were glad we did. The food was excellent and the service friendly and attentive. It was pretty expensive, but then again this is a resort in Southern California, what would you expect?

We had dinner at this restaurant during our stay and the food was OK. The restaurant is dark and the service is slow.

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.

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.

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
