Happy hour on Saturdays with a live three piece band! This was perfect to the end of a relaxing day. Sit on the patio, so you can also experience the fire water fountain.

Better than expected at a great price. I had the ceviche - not your typical tomato based but a scallop ceviche mixed with an avocado puree. Spicy and delicious.

Ww had a great meal at blue fire. The prices are reasonable for the level of service and the quality of food. If your staying at La Costa then you should defiantly try this place.

The wait staff was very attentive. I had the spot prawn and clam special. Very fresh and good, but missing a fresh veggie that should have been a logical side. I'd say it's expensive as entrees were between $40-$50. That and a glass of wine plus CA taxes...

Went here for dinner for 4 on valentines day while staying at la costa resort. Great drinks but very average food and we waited forever for our entrees with no apologies or explanation.

Great service, knowledgable staff, and one of the best lamb dishes of the year. Suggested wine was a big success also. Very top marks

Lots of fun menu items like a daily fish on top of a chinese 5 spice pork... so good... and a night time outside dinner next to a glass fire pit could not get more romantic. The service, food and ambiance were everything I could want from a lovely night in San Diego

Although dinner is pricy, the scallop dinner I had was good. However the scallopini that my husband had was bland. They also have dinner for kids that they like.
