The Admiral Risty has been our "go to" restaurant for year .. we go there for all family birthday celebrations and every Christmas eve as well. The food has NEVER been anything less than perfect and the ambience is wonderful, especially at sunset and the wait staff is second to none.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day dinner with another couple,
Our reservations were for 7:00 pm and we were seated on time. The ambiance was romantic. They handed us a red carnation each and there were red balloons everywhere!
The food was delicious, I love Seabass and I always order it whenever it’s on the menu! Mine was amandine crusted with a lemon caper sauce! It was yum Yummy! My husband had the flank steak and it was perfectly cooked!
We love this place! The food, the atmosphere and service is outstanding!
Enjoyed the prompt seating, the excellent food ( both had Salmon-great), the sunset vista.
We went for a sunset dinner, and it was wonderful.
Very very busy on Valentines night and the service and the food quality was excellent. Def recommend and will def be back. Nice touch presenting all us ladies with a flower upon arrival. 🌹🥂 😊
Needs a better wine list, otherwise, excellent place to eat.
Everyone is always so nice we feel very welcome.
The crab ceaser salad was delicious!
We were there for Sunday brunch and we all had just a delightful time!
out to dinnerfood was delicious as always - ambiance as well. The Risty is a perfect place for a " date night" .Feels more special than just going out to dinner. music in the bar is an added plus!
-Cocktail server inexperienced. Didn't know what a domestic beer was.
-Dinner server didn't listen carefully enough. Several small mistakes... nothing big. Gave adequate service
-Clam chowder was bland and needed salt and pepper, steamed artichoke undercooked, sourdough bread used to be much better when you received the large portion you cut yourself. .. average now
-Oysters on half-shell were very good, salad was fresh
-Untouched, remodeled feel is still fun... cheesy in a very good way
Had special occasion and no one did anything to recognize it.....Prices Too High
This was our second time visiting Admiral Risty's and it was fabulous! Everything was delicious! I LOVE the flank steak with shrimp. My husband had Cajun style swordfish that was yummy. The atmosphere is romantic and the views are beautiful. Our server was very nice. Overall a great restaurant and we will be back!!
Great food, great service always consistent!
Risty is our favorite restaurant. This time the Caesar dressing was different and not as good. The sea bass was a gruper and also not as good. The string bean had no flavor. Not our normal meal at Risty.
A favorite Occasion spot. We try to time our reservations for sunset with views of the Pacific & the Channel Islands. Waiters have been there for ages & are gems (thanks for being game about the sparkler candle Kevin). Food is tasty & generous; hubby loves the Oysters Rockefeller.
Great food, great service and great ambiance!! Loved everything about my first visit here! Hubby had lobster and filet and I had flank steak and shrimp. I LOVED my meal! So yummy and great service! We will be back soon!
I love the Risty, live 5 min away and get a better table when I don’t reserve with open table. Tonight was the worst table. Waitress was awesome. Other staff not so much. Timing of food service was off. This restaurant isn’t cheap, so good service from all should be a given. Staff should be friendly.
Not sure I would recommend Admiral Risty. The food was good and plentiful. The service was okay but nothing special. The location is very nice.
If you like an old fashioned, crame them in, decent seafood place that is noisy and bustling where there are ten celebrations going at all times, this is the place for you.
Great food and wine menu
Great ocean view with the lighthouse in the distance
We love Admiral Risty! The first time I had flank steak salad, I thought, warm steak on a salad? Really? Now I'm a true believer. The flank steak is a unique dish created by Risty Wood that you won't find anywhere else! I highly recommend it!
