    I have been following the chefs career for years now. The restaurant definitely lived up to the hype! I'd say it was one of the more memorable dinners I've had. Service was stellar as well!

    Everyone in the party was very surprised and happy. The ambiance, menu, meat above outstanding. Our server helped made the event. He was fabulous. Many in the group have experience in world class restaurants. I was embarrassed one woman in our group got a bit loud. I will sing your praises. Can’t wait to return with a smaller group. Thank you.

    We had to wait for more than an hour for the main dish to be served, am not sure if there was a mixed up in the kitchen, but it was irritating to see 2 other tables that got way after us had their food served 1st. The managers were both polite and gracious enough to apologize and partially comp our meal but then again it just really ruined the high expectations we had had for this place. Our server Erica was very attentive and nice,

    Food was excellent! Wait staff did not ask if we wanted wine with our dinner. I asked another waiter to bring the wine list. When I was ready to order wine our waiter was no where to be found. Had to request our wine selection from another waiter. For the money spent, service was poor! We dined outside and two of the guests complained of mosquito bites the next day.

    Were treated to complementary champagne to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance was great. Our server, Jeremiah was attentive and fun. Loved the little extra touch to our dessert as well! Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Carlsbad and a foodie fan of Richard Blais!

    From start to finish, it was a dream. Everyone we're so nice. Old school decor taken from old resort of yore! Great service. The drink selection was really cool, a vibe of end of summer. Great Bourbon selection. All food items we're fresh and tasty. The corn and jalapeno salad was such a great idea, sweet and spicy. The Wagyu burger was out of this world. Awesome carrot cake, delicate! On topof all that, we we're able to buy Chef Blais BBQ sauce.

    We had a fabulous birthday dinner! Some of the favorite dishes included the tuna tartar, sopes, dates, and beet salad. The meat was excellent as well. You must order the apple pie. Everyone at the table loved it. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The only thing I would point out is that the portions are very small. You will need to order several items to feel full. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to go back!

    we were seated right behind a party of 20 in a narrow room. We asked to be moved and the hostess said the party would not be seated for quite some time. 5 minutes later they arrived.. 1/2 of the party was under 7 years old. No one came to check on our food, which was over salted and some items luke warm. this is an expensive restaurant and service would have been better in a diner. they didn't have their "famous " garlic croissants. No salt and pepper on table and no one to ask. The manager said she was sorry but offered us. nothing for our problems. A free drink, entree or dessert was definitely called for. We will never go back.

    This restaurant price for value is terrible. It was better with the past concept. Sometimes great chefs - “miss the boat “ so to speak. He has.- after getting a free buildout by the hotel - golf course. Too bad.

    We ate outside overlooking the lagoon. It was lovely. Our waitress Carrie was very attentive. I thought the food was a little pricey. Everything was a La carte. My salmon was delicious. I I had an ahi tostada that didn’t think the tuna tasted very fresh. I probably should have said something but did not want to spoil the atmosphere at the table. I don’t like complain

    We’re fairly regular customers. We usually go for lunch with our group of 4 couples and have a great experience. This time our table wasn’t ready and it took the staff multiple attempts before they were able to provide shade. Our server was excellent and we enjoyed our lunch once we were settled.

    Had higher expectations for this place. Overall, it was good but we weren’t wowed. The ribeye was not hot when it got to our table and we just didn’t have the heart to send it back. The bone marrow appetizer had more sweetbread than marrow. More for one person than to be sHared. Love the ambiance tho, felt very private. Service was great as well. Would love to give this 5-stars but fell a little short. There’s definitely much more on the menu worth trying so it’s definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Celebration for friend’s B day on patio. Hedge trimming and blower noise during the entire lunch. The setting was beautiful though. Server was just right. I had Thai salad with chicken. While the salad was very good, the chicken could not have been drier. My friend enjoyed her Ahi tuna and avacado.
