    I wasn't expecting a buffet, but that's OK. I'll continue my diet tomorrow. The made-to-order omelet was excellent. There was also a great variety of shellfish, salmon, and other goodies. The prime rib was excellent. Last, but not least, the desserts were superb. The wait staff was prompt and attentive. Of course, the ocean view from my table was spectacular. Outside, there were paths above the cliffs for me to walk it all off.

    This is the second time I made a reservation for a birthday celebration and the second time is not addressed by the server. The resteraunt went from packing my leftovers to giving me a container to do it myself. The only reason I continue to dine is because of my husband, he likes it for his birthday.

    The food selection and quality of the brunch was excellent. One of the best brunch I have been to. The ocean views, interior décor, seating, champagne, and service were also excellent. The only issue was the front reception, told us to wait a few minutes and then totally forgot about us. I noticed they starting seating new arrivals ahead of us so I checked back in and they asked me for my name again. We were seated soon after this. Putting this one issue aside, this is the best brunch I have been to and would definitely return!

    This was my first time here as well as my sister's. We were seated at a window over looking people going in and out of the bathroom and a bunch of tree. We didn't have a view of the ocean or the landscape but this time I was already disappointed and didn't even want to order any food. The decore of the celing was beautiful though, the waitress was good as well. Now to the food, the calamari was very delicious as well as the ahi tuna, the beer marinated skirt steak was not that great even the fish and fries were better than it. I would not come here again, I have a future reservation here which I will be canceling due to the view of our seating.

    Folks, if you haven't tried this place as of yet, do yourself a favor and try it now! This place is outstanding for view and ambiance. There are virtually few other restaurants in the South Bay, anywhere, that compare to the Trump for a great view and general good vibes. The food is great and the service is outstanding (as indicated!). In addition, the wine list is extensive and showcases a great variance in wines from around the world. Further, the wines are reasonably priced as compared to other restaurants that often mark wines up to the 500% realm...out of control!

    This is such a great place to go for a quiet, beautiful dinner - complete with very quiet classical guitar music! Dinner was really delicious - I had the chicken, and it was not boring, and the caprese salad was fabulous. Great Service, beautiful view, ambiance over the top! I love coming here. One suggesition, however - they should put at least ONE table for two by a window for a better view point. Just an idea.

    My husband and I and another couple went to Trump's for dinner on Cinco De Mayo just before sunset. We were in a rush because our friends had a plane to catch. Normally, we would like to dine there with no time constraint. The waiter was very quick and efficient. We ordered the special for the evening with a delicious assortment of mexican foods. The dessert was the perfect ending! The view of the ocean and golf course are spectacular! Even though the dining experience was 5 star, I prefer to go before sunset to enjoy the views as well!

    Food was fine... A little meh but descent enough. Really, you go there for the nice view or a stroll along the bluffs by the sea. (Or you play a round of golf). We had a late lunch before heading to an afternoon event nearby. I saw a table near ours that was having afternoon tea. The English style afternoon tea set looked pretty good and it seemed like a nice way to have High Tea, looking out onto the golf course and ocean.

    My uncle and cousin flew in that day from NYC to visit my dad, it was great to see the brothers enjoying visiting with eachother. They are both elderly and hard of hearing so being in a quiet restaurant with comfy chairs was a plus. They could hear eachother. Our waiter was terrific! He was great explaining the menu to the brothers, as well as making my 8 year old son feel special.

    We went here for a Valentine's Day Brunch on 2/16/14 and it was truly memorable. It is pricey-with tip for 2 people the cost was $195, an expensive brunch. That being said, the assortment of food is pretty amazing. They have 3 different kinds of lox and one is better than the next. The bouillabaisse with lobster tails was outstanding. I'm not a meat eater but several in our party were and they raved about the short ribs and other choice selections of beef. My boyfriend said the sushi was some of the best he's ever had. The dessert assortment is enough to send a diabetic into a comma.. The service was terrific and the view simply cannot be beat. We took a long walk on the beautiful grounds after brunch to walk if all off-nice bonus!

    If you like a nice setting and if you are ok with just a pretty good brunch, than this might be the place for you. However, we feel if you are going to pay $75 for the brunch, we expect something exceptional and this was not. Granted, you may be paying for the ambience but we expect the food to be outstanding also. The food for the most part is pretty good but we have been other places that were much better for less money. We have also been to some places that were much better for more money. If you haven't been to many Sunday brunches to compare it to, you might be a reviewer that thinks that this is 5 star altogether but it really isn't. Will not go back for brunch. Might be ok for lunch or dinner but haven't tried it for those meals.
