Chandler's - Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa
Perfect birthday nightI took my wife and kids to celebrate her birthday, and it was perfect. Chandler's is our favorite spot, we have been there as a couple for a romantic dinner on the ocean view patio, other times for happy hours in the outdoor lounge with a live band, and with our kids. They always deliver. Food is delicious, service excellent, wine choices abundant. Definitively try it.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSunset DiningThe hotel has ample free parking and a beautiful upscale lobby with contemporary decor. The patio offers beautiful ocean views. It is a great spot to watch the sun go down with friends.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinner.My son took me here for a belated Mother's Day dinner. We were impressed by the calmness of the lobby. The table we had was at the window as it was too cool to sit outside, although many tables were filled. The food was excellent, starting with the beet salad. My son had the rib-eye steak which was cooked perfectly. My husband had the filet, which also was cooked to his taste. I had the sea bass. It was exactly the right size, and the spinace was delicious. The desserts were also excellent.
My son works at a local resort and said he would certainly recommend this restaurant. We were very pleased with the experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!We had four friends in town from Dallas, TX who come to Carlsbad every year so they are very familiar with the restaurants and bars in town. Took them to Chandler's on Monday night and they were blown away. Fabulous food, atmosphere, and location. Doesn't get much better than this!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food ! Must go to :)The food was GREAT !!! Everything was unbeliveable ! Service at the bar was real good but the Service for dineing could of been better. Had to ask for water. Butter and they didn't give me a steak knive for my steak. Had to ask for that. But the food made up for the lack of good service. We just chalked it up to our waiter was new, you could tell he was really trying . We will be back and will tell anyone it is worth it. Complements to the Chef :) GREAT menu :)4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ChoiceMy g/f and I had dinner here on a saturday around 7:30. The place is very clean, noise wasn't too bad even with live music in the back ground which actually added to the experience. Food was great, drinks were a little expensive, however they were very good. Highly recommended for 2 people or groups up to 6. Can't go wrong with any of the desserts.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGorgeous Sunset DiningExcellent service, delicious food and gorgeous views. We had 6pm dinner reservations and were able to enjoy the sunset over the Pacific. Doesn't get much better than that!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location in the newGreat location in the new Hilton. Wonderful meal
And terrific service, but so very loud. Could not
Hear ourselves!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice addition to Carlsbad.We have been here twice once for dinner and once for lunch. Dinner was great, food is fantastic. Can get noisey at dinner. Lunch is more low key and quiet. Great view of the ocean. We will be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restautant!!Awesome food, service and view- made for a great birthday celebration!!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good. We didThe food was good. We did have to ask gwo different times for beverages and refills...my husband waited a long time for a margarita...tjeserver was stretched pretty thin.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is a newcomer toThis place is a newcomer to Carlsbad and I've actually been here once before when they first opened. Both occasions were lunch engagements, and the place is relatively quiet at lunchtime. It's got beautiful views of the Ocean, and the hotel and restaurant are very sleek modern. The menue offers a nice selection, and the food is quite acceptable. I didn't find the French onion soup all that authentic, but it was still good. My one negative is the service: it's very slow. We had to ask for a food server from other staff passing by, after waiting quite a while for someone to show. The server was friendly and competent once he got there, but, again, the food was very slow in coming. I liked the place, but service needs to be more attentive.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentLunch on the 22nd of March for four of us was delicious. We will return and try Happy Hour sometime during the summer months.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe absolutely loved the foodWe absolutely loved the food and the service was very good. However we found the noise level to be extremely loud which
made it difficult to have any conversation at our table. Our table was between the bar and the kitchen so we got the noise from both.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTOO NOISY FOR ROMANCEWe enjoyed our dinner very much at Chandler's. What we did not like at all was the noise level. We wanted to have a romantic dinner and the place was so loud that we had to yell at each other to be heard. (our waitress said the same thing). I had been there once when Chandler's first opened and spoke about the noise levels then. They need to get sound buffers or separate the restaurant from the bar somehow. We may go back for happy hour but not for a nice quite, romantic dinner....as it is not worth it!3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Good ExperienceWe live close by so we hit Chandlers up a couple times a month, if not more. The food wasn't stellar this time around, but the service was great and the drinks were fantastic. Irwin was our waiter, he's served us on a couple occasions and he always does a good job.1/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
