  •   We came... we saw... we ate! Clean plate club members.  My friend had fish (cod I think) I had the enormous and very juicy burger.  

    I was hungry and it looked amazing. Bacon, cheese, burger, tomato, onion, pickle.  

    I won't lie. I picked off the tomato and onion. I always do.   It's just not my thing.   I cut into the burger and it was juicy and medium rare and I could smell the bacon as I took my first bite. Then the cheese.  And my mouth was happy.  Skinny cut fries on the side.  And yes I had a few.  And they were good! But I saw saving myself for the burger.  Fig jam in there somewhere too.  That put me over the edge. Soooo good.

    I drove from North Park to Vista (1hour) and Vista to Escondido (27 minutes) just to try this burger and it did not disappoint.  

    Pink lemonade was lightly sweetened. My friends ice tea. Unsweetened as she asked for.  

    My friend loved the risotto  and fish.  Clean plates, full bellies.  No room for dessert.  But the churros looked amazing.  So next time. Maybe I'll get something lighter. And not skip dessert.  

    Great service. Some other semi loud and happy people at a table across the place.  Nice friendly casual environment. We are inside.  Next time outside. ‍

      Went last night table of 7 all separate checks and Kaylee was our waitress.  Let's just say she did a fabulous job and went above and beyond for us!  She was very customer service oriented and very friendly. The food was soooo good!  We got crab cakes, flatbread pizza, surf and turf tacos, fish tacos, truffle fries, onion rings etc!!  Will definitely be back!

      So unfortunately we have not been impressed since our first visit to Flawless Bistro. We visited two more times in recent weeks but were only happy with the Shepherds Pie, it was really good, just needed more veggies but otherwise a great dish. The shrimp and sausage gumbo left a lot to be desired as there were no shrimp, only a few slivers of sausage and no okra. However, the actual flavor, he said, was delicious. When the chef found out about the gumbo mishap she invited my BF back to the restaurant stating she was only there Tues-Thurs (odd) so we went a third time on a Tuesday for lunch. I ordered my crispy chicken sandwich again and he ordered the French dip. This time the chicken was cooked longer and probably too long as it became dry and the breading quite dark. The cheese was completely melted which took away from the flavor in my opinion. And I didn't realize it at the time but there was no prosciutto either. Then there was the French dip. It was literally made with the same pot roast type meat that was in my shepherds pie. We found that quite bazaar and have never encountered something like that. It's usually a sliced deli roast beef, right?? Or maybe an actually thin sliced cut of steak if you're going to kick it up a notch... I mean, are we crazy?! Pot roast does not belong on a French dip. The homemade chips are always good but we're not eating out for sides alone. Another funny thing we wondered is why the meal for him wasn't on the house. Kinda like, why else did we come you know..Now I'd like to talk about the service. It's pretty slow, which we can forgive when a place is busy. However, out of the two lunches and one dinner we attended, we were the only two patrons in the dining room. There was also a fair amount of ranting and cursing coming from the kitchen on the day the owner/chef was there (again odd). Finally, something I did not mention during my first review out of respect for the server, when it was time to pay they told us that they would like our tip to be in cash because they do not receive tips that are put on charge. Now because my BF is hard of hearing and they were literally trying to whisper this out of earshot of their coworker (who was hovering), my BF had to ask them several times to repeat that which made them extremely uncomfortable. So we tipped in cash. I'm not sure what all that was about or what the 3.5% convenience fee is about either. Unfortunately, for these reasons, it's not worth it for us to return.

      Great food! Casual dining in hidden meadows. The tacos were amazing and the bacon wrapped meatloaf was great! Dog friendly! We will be back!

      Had a fantastic dinner last night at the Flawless Bistro! Even got to meet the owner! Single mom with great recipes!

    I had the chicken lasagna which is made with pesto instead of a tomato sauce.  Delicious!  Hubby had the Greek plate which consisted of Greek salad, chicken, pita and hummus and he really enjoyed it!

    Highly recommend you give them a try!

      It was ok. I expected it to be better from the pics I saw posted on facebook. Portion sizes kind of small for the price. I'd be willing to give it another shot, maybe it was just an off day. The water brought to our table had Floaties in it... like the glasses weren't clean

      Giving 4 stars because I thought the food was very good! Our waiter wasn't very good and the outside seating wasn't very nice , the inside looked more inviting but we had a few kids with us and thought we should eat outside... I think the staff could use improvement but good food

  •   Shady business!  They are attached to the golf concession stand.  I asked for the deal advertised by the gold course.  The guy taking my order clearly knew I wanted the the $10.95 beer + hit dog.  I asked him 3X for the deal and he told me not available and tried to bill me for his restaurant.  He could have been honest, but clearly deceptive.  Shady.  Stay away unless you want shady biz.

      I was disappointed, pics were much better then what was received. Couldn't order drinks in resturant, had to walk to bar and pay seperate. Service wasn't great at all. Chipa were good but didn't care for anything else and the prices were outrageous for what I received.

      After seeing a couple of posts online about this new restaurant, my husband and I went to give it a try tonight and are so happy that we did! The food was absolutely fabulous. I had the special which was Gnocchi with braised beef in a truffle sauce and my husband had the seared cod with risotto.  We also shared a supreme flatbread & some crab cakes as appetizers.  Every plate was amazing and needless to say, we both ate way too much because everything was so good. Definitely give this restaurant a try, the chef was so friendly and it was fun to talk with her about each dish.

      I'm so excited to announce how good this place is...I love to golf and to eat great food. I'm so thankful for this restaurant for there is no restaurant around like this one. Chef Lauren came to our table and treated us very well. Highly recommend the steak frites, Chicken parm ciabatta, pot pie, seafood spaghetti and so much more!!!! Golf course is a good course as well.

      I went last Friday for Lunch.  The chef herself Lauren suggested that I try her Chicken Ciabatta. And it was amazing.  You have a beautiful view of parts of Escondido that you dont always get to see.  Prices were resonable as well.  I am going to try many items in the near future!  Looking forward to trying dessert there as well next time!
