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.

We enjoyed two breakfasts and one dinner there. Food quality was high, well-presented and healthy options were available. Service was good although noticeably slower on the one Labor Day weekend breakfast we had. The table next to us repeatedly, aggressively complained "about everything" and the squeaky wheel got the grease. Later heard they were not charged as well as distracting... More

This is a pretty cool place, but a little hoity-toity for my liking. I ordered the Elk Chop, which was about the size of a melallion and very thin. It was floating in honey. It came with honey-glazed carrots which were WAY undercooked, and bacon infused sweet potatoes with a few roasted potatoes mixed in. Sweet on top of sweet... More
