We loved the ambiance of BluEmber. The service and friendliness of the staff was excellent. Each meal or snack was plated well and so delicious that I couldn't stop thinking about it. Definitely a place I would recommend!

We ate at the Blu Ember on numerous times during our stay and each time the quality of the food was high. For breakfast I had steel cut oatmeal (it was like a creme brûlée with the sugar crystallized on top) one day and on another I had ham and cheese omelette. For lunch I had turkey club that was...

My wife and I had breakfast at the bluEmber and the food was so good that I would go back and eat there even if I was not staying at the Omni Resort. If you happen to prefer Gluten Free food - you are at the right place. They even have Gluten Free bread.

A disappointment to have such a poor restaurant as the only fine dining option at such a nice resort. 3 out of 7 nights we ate dinner here and not once was it a good experience. Service was poor, attitude of management poor, and food was medicore at best. The third dinner was probably the worst, with our table being... More

The updated lunch menu is A+. Great appetizers, especially the bacon stuffed deviled eggs! My albacore tuna wrap was delicious! Greatest panoramic view of the resort, bird sanctuary and and lots of native plants! Theresa is the best waitress! Kudos to the management for a five star resort and lunch menu! Old or young, the place to chill out is... More

Nice hotel bar/restaurant. On par with what you would expect at an upscale resort. We only dined here for breakfast and cocktails with appetizers and weren't disappointed. Wait staff was very friendly and gladly handled special requests without hesitation.

Excellent location and space, but it was a mediocre meal at best. Service was inconsistent, and slow. Overall, we were not impressed.

I was underwhelmed at what was on offer for dinner, so I ordered two appetizers -- meatballs and crisp brussel sprouts. The restaurant wasn't very busy and I was dining solo. I decided to dine indoors and was the only person dining inside. The waiter brought out the dishes and promptly left for the remainder of the meal. I would've... More

Two good breakfasts. Great mimosas. French toast incredible. Our first server was wonderful. The second day, our waiter was lacklustre.
