My wife and I ate dinner and breakfast here: -I ordered a steak for dinner; it was truly one of the best I have ever had. I like well done meat - they cooked it crispy (no pink) but still had great flavor and not "shoe leather". My wife enjoyed her dinner as well (though not as much as I).... More

Eaten here several times while guests of he resort, most recently in May 2016. Service is great, food is very good. This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a meal at the resort.

A local favourite for seafood, good fish and chips. Great lettuce wraps. Fresh fish is also available for purchase.

Patio dining was quite beautiful. Service was good. Cocktails tasty. Food was ok. Not what was expected for the price. A little disappointed.

The food at Blu Ember was outstanding. We particularly loved the sprouts (so soft + loved the accompanying vinaigrette), the artichokes, the sun-dried tomato hummus, the roasted beet salad, the date poppers, the oysters (loved the citrus mignonette that topped the oysters), and the sea bass. All menu items were really solid in addition to those that really stood out.... More

We really enjoyed the Trio that plays there on Sunday evenings. We had great service from a very busy Tyisha. The wine list is good but overpriced as you would expect for this venue. We opted for the Kendall Jackson Reserve that they charge $45 for when we had a bottle earlier at a different restaurant for $27. So you... More

We went to BluEmber for a family Sunday brunch. We were seated at a table and then waited for quite some time without anyone stopping by with coffee let alone to take our order. In fact, we had to leave the table to attract attention. When the waiter arrived I asked if they had sugar free syrup and the answer... More

Very expensive for the quality of food served. Service was great; would only go back if no other options were available.
