Diner Reviews
  • "Expensive but each dish was very well prepared and quite delicious. Scallops dish was very good. Kids meals were tasty also! Service was very tolerant, and fast and efficient."

  • "We love going to Sanderlings for special occasions. It is close to home and always a great experience"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We enjoyed the view ever through the construction. Fish and chips with slaw was good, but only 4-5 small pieces. Service was good until I wanted the check. I had to go up to the front twice to ask for the check. After the first time with no check, I went back and just waited for the server to bring it to me."

  • "MY FAMILY ENJOYED THE VIEW; WE WATCHED DEER GRAZING ON THE LAWNS OF THE RESORT WHILE WE ATE DINNER. EVERYTHING WAS GREAT UNTIL A VERY LARGE GROUP OF EAGER TO BE "THE CENTER OF ATTENTION" FELLOW DINERS CAME IN, OUR AREA BECAME QUITE NOISY. WE COULDNT EVEN HEAR EACHOTHER SPEAK AND WE WERE AT A VERY SMALL TABLE, IT WAS EXTREMELY ANNOYING.... AND PARENTS, YOU MIGHT WANT TO RETHINK BRINGING KIDS OR ASK FOR A CHILDRENS MENU. MY KIDS WERE BRAVE AND TRIED NEW ENTREES JUST TO PLEASE ME AND DADDY BUT I KNOW THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPIER WITH CHICKEN NUGGETS OR A BURGER- THEYRE NOT INTO "FANCY RESTAURANTS." WOULD WE GO BACK? ABSOLUTELY; MINUS THE MINORS. LOL FANTASTIC FOOD AND SERVICE."

  • "They seem to be running on minimum for the off season. Food was ok, but not up to their norm. Short ribs were dry and stringy. Steak was thin, but cooked ok. Just not the quality we looked forward to at Sanderlings. The construction materials block the ocean view."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "The service could not have been better. My reservation for 6 was at 1:30 and the rest of my party was over an hour late. They sat me at the table, served me an appetizer and continued to check on me, asking about my friends in a concerned, not pushy way. Wish the food had lived up to the cocktails. The steak sandwiches were fatty and tough, the ribs smothered in sauce. Burger and chicken sandwich okay, and coleslaw was very good. After them being so gracious, did not want to make an issue about it, especially after they took the birthday cake we brought, sliced and served it. So, warm memories of the experience, just not the food."

  • "Two of us dined here on a Saturday night. We thought it was strange that we were able to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday night but the patio area was closed for remodeling so that was probably the reason why. Even so, we could still see the ocean sunset even through the scaffolding that was outside. We requested a window table through Open Table but they started to seat us in a booth away from the window. We told them we had requested a window table so they placed us there. The food was good, nice variety and very tasty. Good selection of wines too. Server could have been more attentive, he never returned to ask us how our food was. The bar area is nice and also has a view, good place for before or after dinner drinks."

  • "Food exceeded expectations. BUT we were offered a "first time visitor" amuse bouche, and then charged for it."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food was very good, flavorful, and good portion sizes. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The ambiance was peaceful and pleasant for a romantic dinner. It is well worth what you pay for. Based on our evening experience, we are definitely interested in trying the brunch menu."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Sanderlings gave ample servings and it is obvious they have a skilled chef who knows what he/she is doing. My ribeye steak was the best I've ever had...even better than some of the local steak houses. My wife and I felt a little cramped with the tables being so close together but the amazing sunset made up for it. We are definitely going back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "When we arrived the couple in front of us talked with the hostess for what seemed forever till they were finally seated. We were seated next and my wife wasn't given a rose like all other women diners that night. After being seated we waited a long time before anyone came to the table. When the waitress arrived I asked if they were out of roses and she said no she'd get one for my wife. When the waitress returned she asked if we wanted drinks. I asked if they had a wine list, which she brought back and also had to ask for water. The main course we had the Filet and Lobster tail. If I had known the construction was going on I would have went somewhere else. Great Meal, fair service, not so great atmosphere."

  • "My husband and I had a most wonderful Valentine's Day dinner here. The food was exceptional, the wine the server recommended was wonderful and we were very happy with the whole experience, as we are every time we eat here. One of our favorite places to go out to eat."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Only negative was that I ordered my steak medium rare and it came out well done."

  • "My daughter and I chose the Sanderling for brunch to celebrate her 35 birthday. I have eaten there with friends from La Selva Beach before and have always had a beautiful experience and excellent food. Unfortunately, half of the beautiful views from the restaurant were obscured because of construction just outside the windows. The sweet woman who sat me (my daughter was a bit late) was very concerned because she knew I had chosen the restaurant for both the food and the fantastic views. She kept an eye out for a table near a window to open and by the time my daughter arrived, we were seated at a window with a beautiful view."

  • "Wonderful restaurant inside a nice resort. Food is good as is service."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "The food is great and the service too, but the site is the best thing about this place. Unfortunately they had scaffolding up, partially blocking the view, but there's a great walk outside."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Our view was obstructed by metal fencing enclosing construction work. Otherwise the ambience is usually great!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Food and service were great. Unfortunately they are renovating so the view was obstructed somewhat."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "We've eaten lunch at this restaurant one or twice a year for several years while visiting relatives in the area, and the food quality has been ok. This time the food was poor (my fish & chips was almost inedible, with cod dried out and tasteless, and the turkey in my wife's sandwich was the worst quality of pressed meat). And the "fresh" iced tea tasted awful. We will not return, despite the beautiful views, unless my relatives in the area talk us into it and we learn that the food quality has improved."

  • "Celebrated a Birthday and our table was promptly ready. Service was excellent. They offer a lunch special which is a great value for the food."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The first time I came to Sanderlings was years ago, and it left a bad impression on me. Now that I live in the neighborhood, I've been back there a few more times and I think they have stepped it up a notch. The food is better and the service is much improved. This is a great place for a quick and/or quiet lunch. I always rate places like this according to their salads, and they are good. The bleu cheese dressing is outstanding."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "My husband and I stayed at Seascape resort and wanted to stay close for dinner. It was very nice, beautiful but cold because of the large windows that gave a great view. Food and service was very good and we would go there again."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Hostess was very flexible with reservation time and wanted to accommodate."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "The food was good, not amazing, but definitely above average. Some odd moments, such as 'broccoli' in one of the dishes seemed to only be cut up parts of broccoli stem, no actual florets. The portions were large. Wait staff had some off moments, adding several extra steaks onto the bill (luckily we caught this error before we paid/left). Seemed to be a bit of a young-ish crew for the price tags on the menu. Would prefer to have a more experienced staff for this level of dining. Also, specifically requested a seat near the window for a birthday when booked, we were essentially as far away from the ocean view windows as possible, and those tables near the windows were 2/3 empty. That felt very strange."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "My wife ordered a cup of the special vegetable cream soup and the arugula salad with citrus dressing. She thought the soup was very good and the salad was one of the best she's ever had! I ordered the rib eye steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was a good steak, but not a great steak. I liked the ambience and thought the service was excellent. The only problems were: 1) A group of about six diners sitting at one table was especially noisy, showing no concern for others. 2) Poor service in the cocktail lounge prior to dinner, as the waitress didn't return to give us our check."

  • "I had lunch at Sanderlings this past week. We were celebrating a couple of birthdays. We all enjoyed ourselves . . . very good food, service and views! Thank you for the birthday desserts. We'll be back! Jane"

  • "Perfection! October provided a heavenly day with breathtaking scenery. Menu offerings diverse and beautifully prepared and presented. Friendly, respectful wait staff, including restaurant manager stopping by to make sure everything was just right. Lunch was leisurely followed by a quiet, easy walk down to a pristine California beach. The path was lighted, so it would be intriguing to see what it would be like at night! The Seascape resort has vestiges of the '70 's which lend a cool vibe. Wonderful, felt very private, glorious food!"
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "Sorry to report this, but the poor service really ruined what would have been a nice meal. Our waitress took our meal order, salads were served, and we waited...and waited...and....waited. When she next appeared, she wanted to take our dessert orders. We were a bit confused, but gave them to her. Next up, our dessert! NO entree's. When we told her we had not been served our mail course, she blamed the kitchen. So, we waited, and waited. You get the picture. The next day, we had lunch before leaving the resort. Again, a mix up, not enough menu's! So we waited & waited until the menu's arrived. The quality of the food is quite good, but I would think twice before coming here again!"

  • "Met 3 dear girlfriends for lunch on the weekend; it was bustling but the service, ambiance and food were as always, excellent. The backdrop of the sparkling ocean combined with fresh and delicious breakfast fare was perfect. Our waitress was attentive yet made sure she delivered food & refilled beverages quietly enough that we barely noticed she was there. All in all, this restaurant is terrific if/when you want to share a couple of hours with good friends while dining. G.M."

  • "We were there for brunch - they offer both buffet and off the menu. The food was exceptional, but not outstanding. If you have a family, a good place to go to cover everyone's tastes. The view is awesome - and the staff were very friendly and professional."
