We were visiting gramma and were looking for a quiet place with an ocean view. Gramma wasn't enthusiastic about her lobster Louie salad but loved the place and said she was certain to return with friends & guests in the future.

Fabulous birthday experience
My wife and I celebrated her birthday at The Dining Room a couple of nights ago. It was our first visit to the Dining Room, and we were completely taken by the location, service and food. The staff was attentive and the food was great - we loved everything we ate, but special note should be made of the triple cream brie and the corn truffle ravioli, both of which were brilliant creations. We have already recommended this restaurant to our friends and family and cannot wait to return ourselves. I should note that while we found the room very quiet and inviting, we were there on a Monday evening. Our reservation began at 7 and there was not another diner in the room until 8:30, so our experience may not be yours.

Sauces! The food was well prepared, but the major highlight were the paired sauces albeit the spicy ketchup or steak sauce. They really added a flavorful kick. Best to go around sunset for the best view around!

Had Mother's day dinner there,
Had Mother's day dinner there, with the view of the ocean. The food was very tasty and we passed our compliments to the chief.
Mushroom flatbread is delicious and rather filling as a course, for the dessert - sticky toffi cake, - one portion is enough to chare for 4, and it's so good!!!
Service a bit erratic ( they charged the champaine bottle at the next table to our bill, but quickly fixed the mistake, of course), but firendly. It is a Shangri La hotel diner / bar. The place is small, more fit for a bar than a dining restaurant. Overall impression is positive. Will most likely come there again.

Winning me back!
I had a bad experience at the Shangri La about a year ago and was hesitant to go back. It was the view and those lovely swivel chairs that finally convinced me to try again. Plus, I had been a regular for a while before the "bad" dinner...great flatbreads and sliders...so, back I went, for lunch on my birthday. I told the manager about my dining history at Shangri La and he said they intended to win me back. And, they did! They started right out by bringing a complimentary fruit plate to the table. Then, my smoked chicken salad was lovely, and my friend's Club sandwich wrap made her very happy - so, I am back on board. Next, I'll go back for cocktail hour. I hope they still have the sliders....

While the waiter was great there was a lot of confusion from other staff i.e. the host took a long time to come and seat us, the server brought very spicy ketchup for a kids meal, there was confusion about the bill at the end, and they did not inform OpenTable.com that I had fulfilled my obligation by turning up for the reservation.
Apart from the above the food was very good so I would still recommend the restaurant.
