Carlos was an excellent server. We enjoyed our fabulous dinner. We really liked the special sauce served with the calamari steak appetizer. The bread was fantastic; vegetables and steaks cooked perfectly....all very wonderful.
We liked being seated in one of the smaller rooms which made for a cozy atmosphere.
Thank you for being an outstanding restaurant.

The food and service were fantastic. We expected a much longer wait, but the food came out promptly. The apple pie a la mode with the rum sauce we had for dessert was to die for! Raul was expedient and friendly, and provided exceptional service!

Very enjoyable and helpful
Very enjoyable and helpful staff. Food quality was very good. A countryside experience giving a taste of local culture and life. Wedding on and a band playing added to the experience.

This was the first time my
This was the first time my husband and I went to the restaurant at the Cambria Pines Lodge and chose it for a special occastion, my birthday. The waiter was very cordial but could have been a bit more attentive. I loved the blackened lamb and my husband was happy with the prime rib. He thought the food could have been a bit hotter when it was served. I received a sweet piece of chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream on the house! We loved looking out at the beautiful gardent area. It will not be our last visit.

Charming Lodge, Great Music
Both daytime and night managers were very friendly and helpful. The outside garden is very charming and peaceful. The management staff did everything to accommodate our requests. However, our server had to be reminded to review the requests we noted on our reservation with Open Table. The food was so-so. Our steak was tough and the scallops were bland and tasteless. On a good note, the Louie Ortega band was exceptionally kind and their music was phenomenal, a true Grammy winner! We would not hesitate to recommend the Cambria Pines Lodge to our friends.

I would highly recommend this
I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food was WONDERFUL! I had the filet and my husband had the New York steak. Both were excellent and practically melted in your mouth. Mashed potatoes nicely seasoned and the veggies were steamed and crisp.

My husband and I came here for my birthday because of a travelzoo coupon and we could not have been happier! He got the filet mignon and I got the mustard pork skewers. Both dishes exceeded our expectations in flavor and the amount of food we received. The hotel was nice, but it is the food and great outdoor atmosphere of the restaurant that will bring us back here.

We came for a family birthday
We came for a family birthday dinner at 5:00 then walked over to the Presbyterian Church for a lovely concert. Greeters were not particularly gracious or welcoming. The birthday treat was fun and tasty.

The grtounds are beautiful and the organic garden resulted in excellent, fresh salads. Our steaks were flavorful, tender and cooked as ordered. The decor is dated and a bit funky but it didn't distract from the excellent dinner.

Cambria Pines Lodge was a wonderful place to celebrate Mother's Day. The food was excellent. The outdoor seating was beautiful. The music was just right for the occasion. The service was very good. Everyone in our party had a very memorable experience. Thanks

Great service, lovely gardens, wonderful food. You really feel like you are away from it all here. We had a special dinner deal through Travel Zoo and they treated us like we were full paying customers. Of course we left a full tip as you should. Everyone is very friendly. Try it! The chicken piccata is a real great. Prime rib is great too

Great experience! My wife and I used their package room/meal deal and basically got a $100 dinner for $27. Excellent value. Service & food was super. Mood was excellent for our aniversery celebration. Lounge after dinner provided a great entertainment experience as well. This place was recommended to us by my sister and she hit a home run. Will recommend to our friends and will be back. The gardens around the property are a must see!

Will recommend it to our friends.

Cambria Pines Lodge Dining
Had a very nice dinner and breakfast here. Would recommend this restaurant instead of going into Cambria.

Wonderful Lodge and Locale!
The Cambria Pines Lodge Restaurant is comfortable with excellent food! Watch the service (was a bit slow to start off) but picked up nicely! The grounds, grotto and Araceli the Bus person made the experience for us! Araceli was excellent and very attentive! Thank you! The bar was definitely the place to meet up as the band seemed to set the tone!

We took the family to the restaurant as we spent an evening at the Lodge, and included in the rate were two free entrees and a bottle of the house wine, which was very nice. My filet was excellent, the kids had caesar salads or burgers, both fine. My wife had the vegetable lasagna with mixed review... Would be nice to have a few more vegetarian options, particularly with the fresh local availability. Not a lot of less expensive options for the kids.

The food, service and ambiance were great. The outdoor area is pretty to look at and window seat is nice, although a window table was not available and our location was fine. Cute and comfortable dining room.

Great dining in a beautiful setting
We had a great dinner in the patio...we were seated outside in an alcove with a fireplace and our dog was treated like royalty!!
I had the halibut which was very good and my husband had the sea scallops and said they were delicious..
The service was excellent and we will definitely be back the next time we visit the Cambria area!!

best kept secret
My husband and I spent two nights at the Cambria Pines and we had not only two wonderful breakfast buffets, we also had a great dinner which was part of a package deal. We both ordered the Steak with the mushroom sauce, which was excellent and we also enjoyed a great bottle of their house wine. The service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant as well as the lodge to others. Can't wait to return again!!!! Getawaygirl

Good food, good bar area too
We had a good dinner in the restaurant - service was good, attentive but not too much - food was good too. On another night we had appetizers and an amazing dessert in their bar - if you get a chance to try their puff pastry with ice cream and fudge sauce you definitely need to try it! Good wines by the glass, nice atmosphere, and an overall nice experience. We would definitely go there again when we're in the area.

The food was great, the décor
The food was great, the décor was awesome. I think this was one of he nicest places I have eaten. I loved the food. The service needs a little more attention. The first night the waiter was doing okay but didn't even bring water until our diner was half way done. The second night the waiter needed a lot of help. He didn't do a very good job making us feel welcome. He didn't tell us that we could take our wine with us as well. The whole experience makes it warmer when you feel welcome.

We were pleasantly surprised to find restaurants on Open Table in Cambria. It is located off the 1 and can't be seen from the highway. We enjoyed our late lunch. We will stop in again. The location appeared very quiet and "woodsy" . The bar/lounge had football games on and we might have eaten in there had we seen it first. It was lively and inviting too.

Thanksgiving buffet was good,
Thanksgiving buffet was good, service was adequate, great atmosphere. I ate Christmas dinner there and it was excellent. A great place to go on these holidays when most restaurants are closed. Scenic lights in the courtyard, and a very nice bar.

Can't wait to go back
My family and I have made Thanksgiving at Cambria Pines Lodge our tradition going on our 3rd year. We love it. The scenic forest views, heated pool & jacuzzi, nature walks...and the food! The food was spectacular. We will definitely be back before next years Thanksgiving feast. Thank you, Cambria Pines Lodge for our families great memories!!

Turkey day feast
When we heard the thanksgiving meal would be "buffet" style- we were expecting cafeteria, rehydrated food that could be easily prepared for the masses. Wow! were we ever so surprised. The food was amazing- they prepared smaller platters at a time to ensure excellent quality. The vegetables were fresh from the restaurants garden and were crisp(prepared perfectly). All of the traditional Thanksgiving fare was provided with each dish tastier than the last. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my closest friends and family. We hope to return next year with a larger group.

Good basic menu, with something to please everyone. Especially busy the night we went, and we were sitting next to a party table, so was a bit noisy. Food was delicious .
