    We had excellent food and a lovely presentation. Our server was great with helpful recommendations. We ate inside because the weather was a bit chilly. However, there is a large outdoor seating area with outdoor fire pits for the cooler weather. We stayed at the Marbrisa resort so this was an easy place to dine after a long day of travel. We were not disappointed.

    Ordered fish tacos with NO SPICE - food allergy to peppers (got peppers). Mouth blistered, tongue blistered - waitress put in a new order for me - chicken noodle soup;( I've had it here before). This time, bowl of mostly carrots and PEPPER! More pain & 'oh sorry'. Manager came to the table - ''what can we do for you?' They promised not to put those items on my bill! Ended up with a green salad (which was excellent) and coffee (gave me without charge to comp). This place runs hot and cold and I keep coming back hoping the meal as well as the service will be excellent. Hasn't happened yet. No wonder the attendance is sparse (except for the guests staying at the hotel). Doing Open Table reviews hoping management will see & improve!

    My out-of-town guests and I really liked the restaurant. The indoor dining option was lovely - spacious and well-appointed. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The luncheon menu was adequate - I would have liked more choices but overall we were able to select entrees that not only seemed appealing, but turned out to be as good as advertised. The food was well-prepared and the portion sizes were large. This was my first time here and I feel it was a good choice -- I will return.

    Great restaurant, casual atmosphere, fine dining. Have eaten at Twenty/20 several times, both for lunch and for dinner. Always, the food is very good, well prepared, very tasty, and nice portion size. Service matches the food, server's know menu well, explain menu items well. Servers there when needed, not hovering. Nice wine list to complement menu. Overall, a great place to dine, lunch or dinner, and enjoy a great dining experience.

    Twenty/30 was perfect in every way-- really enjoyed the food, wine and service. One issue is the need to put doors on the larger meeting room- the noise from a large party was irritating- a bit boisterous/ put glass doors to provide privacy for the separate groups and other diners....

    Situated on a hilltop looking out over the Pacific, this is a perfect place for lunch, sunset dinners, or a big party of friends! The Cobb Salad was PERFECT, not drowned in dressing and very fresh. We were a party of 6; each selected a different menu item and everyone was completely satisfied with their lunch. The restaurant is hard to find; the Sheraton Hotel signs are obvious, but the Twenty/20 signs are less so. But once there, you'll find a wonderful menu and gorgeous views. Service is slow and inattentive, but I'm guessing this is a training issue and can be easily corrected. Try it if you're in the area!

    This is a nice location however it is a hotel restaurant so for locals, likely not an unforgettable dining experience. I was there on a Friday night, a little loud and outside dining included some cigar smoke outside of the restaurant which elected to waft in which was a little unpleasant. Overall a pretty good place though pricey for the type and amount of food.

    I wanted to try this restaurant out for Restaurant week since the menu for the event looked pretty good. The restaurant itself is pretty nice--the ambiance is that of a typical restaurant within a hotel. I ended up getting the polenta for appetizer, pork loin chop for main, and chocolate creme de pot for dessert. I really liked the polenta, which had a poached egg and mushrooms on top. The pork loin chop was pretty tender and flavorful. The dessert was really rich. There was a man playing a classical guitar outside that was really good. Overall I enjoyed my meal.
