“Great environment”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Love the food and the patio. We ate every meal here during our stay. Also, the perfect spot to view the "pink moment" during sunset.

“great ambiance, overpriced, good service”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Love the setting and the excellent service from the wait staff. Skipped the brunch but tried dinner one evening. Lovely setting but way overpriced compared to other wonderful dining options such as Suzanne's Cuisine in town. You pay for the atmosphere and the convenience of staying on site. Enjoyed the live music and outdoor setting though. Reservations are likely advisable on the weekend.

“Friendly service, OK food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The staff (like throughout the property) were gracious and friendly. The food is solid and good but the value proposition seems a little out of whack. For $60 (even at a spa retreat) I expected more from lunch than "That was nice, I'm not hungry any more". They also seem to be overly conservative about reserving tables. Each time we dined at the Oak Grill, there were vast swaths of empty tables, even though we were told they could not accommodate us at the time we wanted.

“Tortilla Soup!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Had dinner and watched a beautiful sunset while witnessing the famous 'pink moment'. Service was great and I had the best Tortilla Soup of my life. A generous portion. It was like a liquid enchilada. Creamy texture with dollops of cheese and crunchy tortilla strips add to the mix. A meal in itself! Yum
