Breakfast buffet well prepared with choice of full @$24 or continental(without eggs) @$16. Seafood buffet Friday night but many items overcooked. King crab legs were frozen and had to send back. Prime rib buffet Saturday night but did not partake. Their Caesar salad is outstanding.

Our first evening at the hotel. My wife and I were attracted to the Greg Norman Kobe beef burger on the menu. We ordered them prepared medium. The burgers arrived at our table overdone to the point of becoming charcoal. My "Cajun fries" were plain old French fries but cooked in rancid-smelling old grease and soggy. I lost my appetite...

Not all of us dig fusion foods or dig a chocolate fondue fountain. This place has both. The Sunday Brunch was pretty good. It's no Mother's day at Castaways or the Crown Room at the Hotel Del...but it's OK.

This was our only hotel option for dinner that was open so we gave it a try. Unfortunately, the food and service were not worth the price. There are many great dining options in the area so I would only choose Cava for convenience.

A buffet was available and several in our party liked the choices offered. I had the crab cake, very good, and a salad with strawberries that was perfect for a hot evening!

One of us ate the all-inclusive $24 buffet (juice and coffee included) and the other opted out for the $16 huevos rancheros Benedict" from the menu. This is "a twist on a Coachella Valley favorite", (so says the menu description), as well as the $5 glass of orange juice and the $3 cup of coffee. All in all, the all-inclusive... More

The Cava was wonderful with a fix-price menu for years. That has been discontinued and now it is fine but not wonderful like years ago. They redecorated and we liked it better before. Still, a nice place to eat if you are in town.

We had breakfast there a couple of times during our stay the Esmeralda Resort. We chose the Buffet. I was surprised to see the juicing machines and different fruits and vegetables available for you to create your own specialty juice. The chef will prepare an omelet to order. good variety on the buffet. Very friendly staff.

Ordered a Grilled Rib Eye cooked medium for $36. Portion was big so split the order with the wife. Ordered to go and Ate it at the lobby for better ambiance, better bar and TV. Will probably order this again next time.

We went to the restaurant on a Friday Night when they had the Seafood Buffet so the dinner menu was limited with a small selection of entrees. My husband and I opted for the Cava Burger which I must admit was huge, perfectly cooked and delicious. The sweet potato fries tasty. We enjoyed sitting outdoors in the warm Palm Desert... More
