Our waitress was very nice, one of the nicest parts of our meal. We were so hungry when we arrived, and started with caesar salads. The dressing was out of a jar, and nowhere near what a real caesar dressing should be. Super stale croutons. I ordered chicken picatta that came with a side of penne and vegetables. The vegetables...

Yes it is pricey. But the food is great, the steaks were just amazing, cooked to your palate. I had the filet and it was medium rare the way I ordered it. They have good wine selections and a full bar. The atmosphere is great. A nice low light feeling and romantic. Definitely a great "special occasion" dinning. Service is... More

First the food was excellent - no question. Their alfredo sauce was some of the best I've tasted with the fettucini noodles, chicken and green chiles. What surprised and disappointed me was paying $5.00 extra for a salad on a meal that was already costing over $15.00. Don't be mislead and get a salad because it does not come with... More

The service was great and fast. Very accommodating for our baby boy. The food was excellent. When we go to Italian restaurants we always order calamari. Usually if the calamari is good the rest is good. And of course the calamari was very good and the marinara was amazing! I ordered the filet mignon medium which came out perfect!! It's... More

Ate here two nights in a row. Very good Italian food with other foods, such as steak, if you desire. Interesting New Mexico wines. Hotel has a free wine testing most nights from 3-7. Check to see which nights.

We had a great hamburger for lunch. It was cooked as ordered and the bun was a good flavor complementing the burger. Service was good and personal. Great place to eat.

A bit of a bizarre place being that it is Carlsbad in the middle of the desert. Try the goat cheese appetizer. Everything I've tried is good. Orange Roughy was excellent.

Stayed in the hotel and decided to have dinner. Menu is basic American Italian. Nothing too exciting if you're a foodie. But the calamari appetizer was well prepared and accompanied by a wonderfully spiced red sauce. For an entree I couldn't resist their surf and turf. Steak was prepared perfectly with great flavor. Unfortunately the lobster tail was over poached... More
