Blue corn pancakes were excellent. Omelets were also very tasty, but we did not eat dinner there so I cannot comment on entree choices

If you don't try the green chili, you might have to have your traveler's badge revoked! Absolutely terrific, and good with everything except dessert!!

The prime rib was prepared very well, and the meat was in a plate with au jus in the plate rather than a separate container adding to the flavor of the prime rib. I ordered it medium well, and it was spot on. The waiter made a few mistakes on our order. Since we had a group of 7, a... More

I like this spot for the atmosphere but the food is good but better other places. The service is very good.

The restaurant is in the atrium of La Fonda Hotel. That kind of setting always puts diners on display as if it's a seated circular promenade. It's a lovely setting and the sound spirals up to the peak of the atrium. I sat outside the atrium along a row of tables set up just outside the room and in the... More

We even had a table by the fountain, and were delighted by the environs. Service was slow, and we had to ask for some things twice. I would describe the food as mediocre at best, my wife thought it was a little better than that.

Reviews were mixed for this place, thought some of them might just be picky people. Nope. Service was very slooooooooow. Food was mediocre, overcooked and chili sauce thrown on top to make up for a lack of flavor. My husband never did get his margarita. Had to flag servers down for refills and such more than once, no ever checked... More

Very disappointing. The service was average and the food was average too. We had dinner there and the prime rib was tough and fatty. Maybe breakfast or lunch would be better.

Decore and atsmophere was ok for a hotel dining room. Large and open with nice painted windows in the doors surrounding the room. Not too loud despite being open. But, that's where the compliments end. The food was not good. The rissotti was gummy like oatmeal. The mashed potatoes were inedible. The filet was good. The blood orange sorbet was... More
