Top shelf ingredients, home made dressings. (Mr husband had the beet, and I had the spinach). We also had the grilled shrimp appetizer, which was amazing. Wine was 50% off! We enjoyed the salmon, and we're from Seattle :)

We rent a condo unit in the RLP Resort in November each year and have found that the happy hour experience at the Bluember delivers great value on both the wines and appetizers. Staff are always friendly, and quite happy to chat when they have the time. We love the ambience. Usually there is live entertainment playing outside, and while... More

I live in the Rancho Las Palmas Country Club. We just love the hotel, but the Blu Ember restaurant needs to improve. Residents get 50% off on dinners Sunday nights. We took four friends there this past weekend. The food was terrible and the portions were tiny for what they are charging. This is the second time this has happened.... More

Good food, great outdoor desert atmosphere. The music and flames make for a great and romantic evening.

We are spending a week at this hotel, on the first day we had lunch @ Blue Ember. Food was okay, I had a burger which was fine, my husband had the fish tacos which lacked flavour and tasted greasy. This restaurant did not meet my expectations.

We stayed in the resort and ended up frequenting the restaurant. Usually I leave property, but didn't see a reason. The ground of the hotel are gorgeous and the restaurants deck overlooks them and is surrounded by beautiful fire pots and decor. Live music in the evening. The food was always well cooked a seasoned and very unique and inventive.... More

This restaurant bar is outside for the most part, with huge gas fire pits. And a band on weekend nights. The view is of one of the ninth holes on the adjacent golf course, and it is fun to watch the balls go into the water :)

We stayed at the Omni hotel so we frequented this restaurant for breakfast and lunch. They have a nice menu-- prices are a bit high, but what you would expect for a resort restaurant. The service was excellent each time we ate there. For breakfast, don't miss the ruby red grapefruit brulee! YUM!!
