Went with friends for dinner. Was able to watch the huskies game and have great conversation with friends while dining. Josh, the bartender, is very personable, accommodating to food allergies and knoweldgeable of the menu and ingredients.

The views from this restaurant are panoramic and breathtakingly beautiful! Their Sunday Brunch is hugely popular with good reason and reservations are a must. The food is good and they try hard on the service. It's a place to enjoy the great company of others, bask in the views, sip beverages and enjoy a perfectly good meal.

LOVED Escena Grill the first time I ate there and just had to try it again after another round of golf. It was still Breakfast and had the Mexican Omelette, with fresh fruit, and sourdough toast. All the food was GREAT!!! You can tell they use really fresh ingredients, large fluffy omelette (with Chorizo, fresh Jalapeno, cheese), the fruit was... More

Wonderful clubhouse grill with walls of glass overlooking the grounds with sweeping views of the majestic mountains in the background. The menu has something for everyone. I enjoyed the blue cheese/ bacon burger and the house-made chips they served upon our arrival. The Spicy Ranch dipping sauce was some of the best I had. Used more for my fries that... More

You just can't beat the fantastic views of the San Jacinto mountains seen from the clubhouse or patio. The food and service are good however expect this to be more of a golf course club house experience than fine dining. Also, there are no good gluten free options. Even the hash browns got me ill from gluten. Expect bunless burgers... More

I walked in and asked to sit at the bar around 4:15 on a Wednesday. As you might imagine, there were only 2 other people at the bar. I waited about 10 or more minutes while I watched servers stand around talking with one another. Finally, one came over and started making me a dink but then the bartender came... More

OK, I'm not often thrilled or even one that travels out of my way to eat 'Clubhouse' food, at these many desert communities with onsite offerings. I may now change that philosophy as Escena was outstanding and does everything well. Escena offers a great and eclectic menu and they even serve their robust breakfast menu until 3pm. That always makes... More

Finished playing 18 holes just after 9 am and decided checkout the Lounge and Grill which had just opened for the day. Ice cold water available right on the full service bar and ordered the Cuban Sandwich and coleslaw for brunch. Staff was great, service was fast and brunch was amazing. I will be back to play this course again... More
