Started off with a waitress then moved to the bar, bartender was rude but waitress continued to serve us and was fabulous. Drinks and apps were great.

WOW, the staff is amazing and the food excellent. Typically we don't eat all three meals at one restaurant but we were at the Omni Resort for a conference and ended up eating, breakfast, lunch & dinner on different days, and the food was always exceptional and the staff delightful. It's a must even if you aren't staying at the... More

Really great restaurant with awesome menu. Perfect for a romantic night out. A bit pricey if you are taking the kids.

My steak was under cooked in part even though I asked for "well done." The drinks were good. Breakfast is not good. The decor is nice and the service was excellent

Everytime we come to the desert, we spend an evening or two at the BluEmbe, a part of Rancho Las Palmas Resort. They offer free valet parking for dinner guests.

Happy hour was poor - very few apps to choose from and drinks were the cheap stuff. In the regular (not happy hour) version they were making the same drink with fresh juice, while my happy hour version came from a bottle.

When my wife and I are vacationing, we love to find happy hours with live music. BluEmber at the Las Palmas Resort has that six nights a week. With a happy hour that goes to 7pm every night, we don't have to hurry to get there. The hotel valets our car at no charge. This trip we had their fish... More

I am a vegan. I was very excited when the waiter told me that one of the specials that night was a stuffed portobello mushroom. When my dinner arrived, it was one grain stuffed mushroom alone in a bowl completely dripping in oil or butter. And that one mushroom cost $21.00. What a disappointment!

Delicious brunch/breakfast. Good menu for dinner and at night they have music by the fire pit where we did some dancing.

Scallops were out of this world, but steak was flavorless, sides were mediocre. Service was good, wine list was good. Forced to eat expensive breakfast buffet instead of allowing us to order off the menu.
