    We have always enjoyed Morada, but the recent transition of ownership has resulted in a lot of changes, not all good. The Hunstman bar is closed, the menu has condensed, and the staff numbers are reduced. I will reserve judgement but am concerned with the direction.

    Property old, worn, new owner will remodel. Now a mediocre experience. Servers very nice and accommodating, but not trained so several errors occurred. Royce salad was excellent. Beef Bourguignon, meat very tender, sauce and vegetables well marinaded, could have been delicious..... but it was so over salted (and I like salt), I could not eat it. Saturday night and the restaurant was empty, outdoor patio had a few diners - a warning we ignored since we were already valet parked and inside. Service was timely in spite of a fairly large wedding event in process. Manager was quite nice and apologetic. Very sad, we had not been there for several years. I recommend diners wait until the newly renovated property is complete and watch reviews for the gourmet experience one expects at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem in Rancho Santa Fe. Great Food and Excellent Service. The steak frites was amazing and we took home for 2 more meals! The Branzino was cooked perfect. Highly recommend.

    We had a great experience at Morada . Good food and great drinks. Our server was very attentive to our needs . Always a great vibe. We had a small incident about a mix up in our bill that our server Vivianne was great at assisting us with. My only comment on that was her manager was yelling at her as we were with her . Everyone makes makes mistakes . It was extremely unprofessional for the manager to belittle her on something that was a simple mistake . I do not know the managers name , but just a little bit of kindness , goes a long way.

    The food was wonderful, and our server was attentive and friendly! We love eating on the patio and enjoying the beautiful scenery, and our dog appreciates being welcome! Our only complaint is the fly problem that seems to persist, no matter the season or year. My husband suggested some vessels that attract the flies. We know they are unsightly and would have to be hidden from diners, but it's a thought.

    Personally, I was shocked at the recent $40.00 corkage fee! I have been frequenting the Inn for years, and until now it had been my first choice for lunch on the lovely patio in the warmer months and of course the dining room during cooler weather. My late spouse, friends and I are all wine enthusiasts and always share wines to enjoy that are not available on your wine list. You made your point - drink your overinflated wines or dine somewhere else.

    Went for lunch. Had reservation and seated right away. Sat on beautiful outdoor patio. Waitstaff was good and attentive. Food was just o.k. Not worth high prices. Too many bees/flies on table and in food to really enjoy experience. Would recommend to management to get that under control. Pretty disgusting:(

    It was a surprise to arrive and have the host speaking on his cell phone which he stayed on while he walked to our table. Talk about feeling ignored and unwelcome... The food was good but 2 smallish salads and 2 glasses of wine had a price of $120, I was underwhelmed. Service was friendly but slow. I spotted a piece of broken glass under our table and pointed it out to the waiter. This indicated to me that the cleanliness concern of the staff and management is very poor.

    Entrees we’re very mediocre. The beef bourguignon was very subpar. Runny broth, not a rich flavorful sauce, beef that was chuck roast at best with grizzle. Far from being fork tender. Their Royce salad was the best part of the meal. It was our 50th Anniversary and despite stating that on Open Table reservation, nothing was said. We have been going to the Inn for decades, and now the best thing about it is the ambience.

    We were a party of 8 and a couple of the guests liked the food, the rest were not happy. The waffle was cold, the salad lacked dressing etc. We couldn't blame the waiter for the service, he looked overworked and did try. We have eaten at the Inn for years and it is becoming a little disappointing.

    If your group is 6 or more, look at the check before adding a tip. A 20% service charge is automatically added. I would have added a supplemental tip, but not as much as I did if I had been aware of the service charge. I was inattentive; you shouldn't be.

    I’ll be passing on Morads after 3 visits in last 3 months. First visit: inattentive, slow service. Second visit: slow service Last night mediocre food. Two orders of Cacio y Pepe were served barely warm. Same with salmon. We didn’t send back because I was leery of slow service. Patio setting is wonderful and we were entertaining Midwest visitors. Setting doesn’t outweigh spotty service and mediocre food.

    Excellent food. Great service. Very pretty setting, with the only drawback being a wedding was taking place while we were there, so we had to listen to their event. It seemed to be a bunch of nice people, and wasn't obnoxiously loud or anything, but it just makes it less cozy when the DJ is announcing the wedding party over a PA system.

    Food was limited and basically like an inexpensive highway restaurant. the Turkey club clearly had pre-packaged, deli sliced turkey. there were 3 choices of Pizza, 3 choices of mac & cheese, a hamburger, BBQ ribs, one salmon dish, and maybe a couple of other items on the menu. the fries were excellent, the rest of the food disappointing. the price? all items were between $19-38. corkage fee was $40 which I didn't realize until I got the bill. I brought a $200 bottle of wine though, so I guess I shouldn't be too upset.

    The patio area has a great ambiance, perfect for Sunday afternoon brunch and our server Taren, was absolutely delightful! Food options were pretty limited and not very flavorful, however the desserts were amazing. Maybe better just for drinks & desserts rather than a meal
