We had a discussion, and all four of us were unimpressed with the food. My wife says never again...my son is so so, and my daughter is a maybe, one more time...had such good family events there over the years and was her birthday place. Management did try but the second string kitchen staff needs to be better that that! maybe maybe NOT

We enjoyed ourselves so much, we dined here two times during our 4 day weekend. The ribeye was amazing, as was the calamari and wedge salad. The Baked Alaska dessert was out of this world too! Both nights our servers were amazing and nice. Kudos to 333, we'll be back again when we are in town again!

Well. Went 0 for 2 with ordering the 50% off wine on Wednesday wine night . Both red and white we ordered they didn't have. . Wait or said first come first serve. Come on it was 7pm. The 333 filet trio was good but forgot to tell them not to put the butter and salt on at end . Big mistake it was too salty . Chowder was good . The sea bass was salty .

We had a marvelous evening. Arrived early to watch the sunset from the bar. The pilsner and calamari were great. We had a street side table to finish the sunset. The Charred Valoroso Tomato Bisque and Coastal Clam Chowder were some of the best we have had. My wife loved her Mac n' Cheese and and my fresh catch entre, striped bass, was marvelous. The seasonings and flavors of each of our selections were complex and outstanding. The bass was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. This was a great place to celebrate our 40th anniversary.

First time at this spot. Mussels were very spicy and didn't care for those. They graciously took them back. The other items were well presented and delicious. The salad shaped with cucumber slices was beautiful and delicious!
They didn't honor my Passport card when we offered an entre and sushi roll, which left a bad taste. Seemed petty!

We live in Oceanside and have passed this restaurant many times. Since it seems to be attached to the Wyndham, we thought of it as a hotel restaurant and didn’t expect it to be anything special. After receiving a gift card we decided to try it. We were beyond impressed. The menu had so many interesting options, the food was fresh and delicious, the service was excellent. Our server was named Kaan, I believe, and he was great! We can’t rave enough about this place and we will be back. Try the sunset tuna roll, you won’t be disappointed.

I've eaten at several other of the Cohn group restaurants. Was in Oceanside and realized it was just across the street from where we were staying. The location is fantastic (waterfront-pier view) and the restaurant itself very tastefully decorated and a nice patio seating area. Staff was very attentive (Kuan). I had the flat iron steak and it was cooked perfectly and delicious. My guest is GF and vegetarian. There were not a lot of options that fit both, however she had the Falafel entre and said it was best she's had. Looking forward to going back sometime soon.

Won't be back. During previous meals, we have enjoyed the food and gathering. However, last week, my fish was tasteless except for the occasional fishy taste; we needed to ask for bread and steak knifes. The New York steak was no longer on the menu. The Ribeye was more like a Top Sirloin. My lemon drop was certainly not ice cold and was lacking the sugar rim until I asked for it to be remedied. Too many other quality restaurants to choose from.

It was okay. Service was good considering the server seemed busy. Table was horrible. There shouldn’t be a table in that location. It is a 2-top wedged in corner of patio and doesn’t fit properly to pull chairs in and out. Plus, sadly very loud very uneducated/obnoxious person at table next to us made the end of the meal disappointing! Martini I requested extra extra cold came out barely cold. I had to add ice from my water.
