Amazing as always...food was fantastic...service spot on. I ordered a special birthday cake for my husband, and it was absolutely marvelous. Kudos to the chef and his staff. What a wonderful evening.

The food was good once it arrived... warm, not hot. The service was what I would expect at a local diner, not at the Omni La Costa. Go for the Spa, not the dining.

This was our second trip to the Blue Fire Grill and, the first test is just to find it. It's hidden within the La Costa Resort and the best way to find it is to just search for the valet.
