Wonderful environment

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.

This restaurant is great for the kids with the kid buffet and while service is great as with most of the resort the food is only ok and would be more palatable at lower prices.

The food was excellent and the service better. Julio was outstanding and turned another wise mediocre into a great one. We ate at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
