This was one of the best restaurants I have been to in the last 5 years. All food is locally sourced and it is uncomplicated, delicately balanced wholesome food. The menu will delight you, not confuse you. It is not often that I could easily have ordered any item on the menu and loved it. Dinner for the 2 of... More

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.

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 short ribs and Mac and cheese are excellent and mo than enough to share between two people. The bread they give is amazing especially... More

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
