A welcome surprise at Barona Casino for dinner. The service was excellent, very nice staff. Food was satisfyingly tasty. I enjoyed the fried shrimp, an occasional treat for me. The breads were better than average and my husband enjoyed a great bowl of butternut squash soup. It was an epicurian delight! The decor was wonderfully serene with nature pictures all... More

If the friendly and personable staff doesn't spoil you, the food and views of the lake and golf course certainly will.

We were actually at the casino for the spa but decided to grab something to eat while we were there. Out of all the choices we had at 11:30am this one had the most choices and sounded the best. (Not all restaurants are open that early) We had a really hard time deciding what we wanted because everything sounded so... More

Breakfast good. Nice view if you can get a table on the veranda. Prime rib not that good, chicken fried steak was very dry. Not impressed!

We went here for dinner and we sat next to the window with a great view of the pond. No wait to get seated. Caroline was our server. She's got good attitude and good recommendations. Food was great. We enjoyed it so much, we came back the next day for breakfast.

Everything we've tried at Sage Cafe has been outstanding. P.S. don't forget to try the Indian Fry Bread!!!!!! Bet you can't have just one!

Food was really good. Many choices from prime rib to Asian food. Good chicken and waffles. Nice view of the golf course. Service left a little to be desired. Ours was not organized and disappeared quite often. Still worth the trip.

Ate here two days in a row because the food was so good. Large burgers and great salads. you will not go hungry. definitely go for the deserts especially the desert special. This month it was a blueberry cream filled crepe for $2.99. Out of this world.
