Great outdoor setting

Lovely huge outdoor patio overlooks the pool and has live music on the weekends. The beet salad was a great presentation and savory taste. Loved the pork chop and the halibut. The tuna tartare was excellent. Panna cotta dessert hard to pass up. We will be back. There is also a lovely outdoor bar... read more

Lovely huge outdoor patio overlooks the pool and has live music on the weekends. The beet salad was a great presentation and savory taste. Loved the pork chop and the halibut. The tuna tartare was excellent. Panna cotta dessert hard to pass up. We will be back. There is also a lovely outdoor bar that looked like fun.

Great dinner with a very large group. The staff went far out of their way to be helpful. Food was so good! Had scallops with pork belly. Both cooked perfectly. Worth the visit!

This is a great restaurant within the resort. They were very accommodating to special requests and while the full meals were expensive the small plates were quite satisfying. Excellent service.

bluEmber has a great atmosphere, especially the patio. There are fire pits, tiki torches, plenty of room, and usually live music. The bar is also a great place to eat. The food is always good, and they have some vegetarian options, which is a plus.

This is not a family restaurant as it is formal and expensive. The present Chef is excellent, and the food is very good. Wine selections are fine. Deserts are very artistic and excellent.

We did small plates for dinner. Breakfast was fab also. Fantastic service, too. Hate to mention it, but the window tables are bothered by flies. A true bummer in a 5-star restaurant.

I recommend bringing a family to this restaurant. The kids ate a buffet that was reasonably priced and had a few different options which makes a great concept for children who are picky eaters. The live music in the lounge and the great service topped off a good meal. Live music is from Thursday to Saturday and starts at 530pm.
