Only 65??

Hard to believe this restaurant is only number 65 out of 110 but as it is more upscale perhaps it doesn't get the number of visitors that others do. We did think the decor was a bit much but the food was very good and our waiter Jesse was very attentive. Not a lot of diners but it was a... read more

If you are charging $40 for an entree, could you at least get the spelling right? On today's lunch menu, this was "fillet minion." Misspelling "filet mignon" does not complement the upscale atmosphere that you are cultivating. That said, the macaroni and cheese was delicious.

After trying this restaurant three times for dinner, I must say it is a disappointment for a high-end hostelry. This food selections are unimaginative and not interestingly prepared. Breakfast is another story. I would stop by for breakfast even if I were not staying there as the selections are broad, well turned out and delicious. Great pancakes and omelets. Yummy... More

I don't spend a lot of time at expensive, unique style restaurants, but I was absolutely impressed by this food and was amazed by the service. It was definitely worth the price

I stayed at the hotel and enjoyed breakfast and dinner meals at De La Tierra. There was a special Valentine's Day menu for dinner, which was a little disappointing only because the regular menu looked so delicious, and the kitchen was not making items off the regular menu. Notwithstanding, I would definitely recommend this restaurant - it's beautiful, the food... More

The restaurant offered beautiful surroundings and delicious food. Our waiter was very professional. Our dinners were outstanding. I had salmon with risotto and my husband had elk chops with wild rice pilaf. I highly recommend dining in this restaurant. There was nothing we didn't like.

The quality, presentation, environment, and service was outstanding. Jenny was a gem; she was present, handled our special requests, and provided excellent service.

We stayed at the hotel where this restaurant is located. I had expected something alot better, considering the quality of the hotel. However, our meal was just average. I had a southwest style Caesar salad and Stir Fried Veggies with Chicken and Thai Peanut sauce-rather bland and my husband had a caprese salad and crab cakes. Nothing to rave about.... More

Atmosphere was beautiful, steaks were great but the service needs more training, wasn't knowledgeable about wines or food.

The service - the waiter handled the check before being asked - despite several remarks that we were not finished yet
