Jimmy was our waiter--he was very knowledgeable and attentive5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service, Excellent FoodWent here for an early Mother's Day on Saturday. Service was outstanding. Food order was taken quickly, each course was brought promptly, and water cups were always full. Our party had Sea Bass, Salmon, Ciopinno, Risty's Flank Steak, and two kids' meals. All of the fish is fresh, and delicious. They give you 8 choices on how they will prepare the fish (Cajun, Poached, CharBroiled, Piccata, etc). The Flank Steak was marinated in Honey, Ginger, and Garlic, and was the best I've ever tasted.
The restaurant has a good view of the ocean, but unfortunately our table was back a ways from the windows, and it was a bit foggy that day, so there was not much to see.
We might come here several times a year, if it wasn't such a long drive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodGreat service, great food a little to crowded to be called romantic but defiantly a wonderful meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Service!We had dinner at Admiral Risty. My Cesar Salad was perfect. I also ordered the Rack of Lamb which was the biggest order I have ever had, so much food! The service was amazingly fast and efficient without being intrusive. Everyone in our part ordered a different item and they all thought theirs was great. I sometimes forget about this restaurant as there are so many great ones in the area but you just can never go wrong with this place!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBob from NevadaOutstanding service, outstanding food, outstanding view!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMView of the Pacific & Catalina IslaAwesome view with great food and exceptional service (Jill).

My only problem with this restaurant is that at this price, I expect the chef to know how not to overcook asparagus.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'd been wanting to dineWe'd been wanting to dine at Admiral Risty's for years and finally took the opportunity on Easter Sunday to do so. While it was overcast outside - the view was still amazing! Jimmy, our server was excellent!!! And he certainly made the entire experience exponentially better. The food was delicious! We made friends with the patrons sitting next to us - so very friend atmosphere overall and the service was wonderful! Highly recommend. They didn't serve their normal brunch for Easter so we're planning to go back for sure. There are so many other dishes we wish we could have tried. The portions are large though so we ended up taking most of it home.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, ambiance and serviceFood, ambiance and service is fabulous. Our server Jimmy made our dining experience memorable.

It was such a treat to eat there.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit. Pricy but theFirst visit. Pricy but the portions are generous. You're paying for the view (and the service which was warm, hospitable, and overall wonderful). The clam chowder was tasty. The filet was under seasoned and overcooked, but not to the point of inedibililty (I am just picky when it comes to steaks). I ordered med rare as it came med well. Wife ordered the trout and it came out perfect. The desserts were good. Mousse was hice and creamy. The creme brûlée had a great consistency, and the brulee was perfect but I wanted more vanilla flavor (would recommend they put flecks of am vanilla bean to punch up the flavor. I'd consider going back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food combined withVery good food combined with an outstanding server who handled all our needs and requests made for an excellent experience.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy filet was cooked perfectMy filet was cooked perfect and the tenderness was awesome.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant with its beautifulThis restaurant with its beautiful ocean view has been around for many years.
