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!!

This is a nice restaurant within a beautiful resort. The only thing is they have a fly problem. We ate here on our first visit to the resort in May of 2013, complained and management said they would take care of it, but when we tried it again in September of 2014 the fly problem still existed. The do, however,... More

I was visting Palm Springs this past Labor Day weekend and a friend suggested we try the restaurant at the Las Palmas Resort, so we ventured there on Sunday evening for Happy Hour. When we arrived there were several female hostesses. We asked if we could enjoy happy hour outside where the live entertainment was playing. They politely told us... More

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.
