    We used to come here for breakfast when you were able to order their amazing blueberry pancakes and the place was rustic and had character. Food is fine, just more complicated, but it’s become too commercial for our taste.

    Great view, good service and we all enjoyed the food. The bench in the booth where we sat was sinking on one side and the table was cracked/peeling. We were crammed in close to the table next to us so hard for some of our party to get in and out.

    Nice old home with seating outdoors. Veggie omelet had asparagus, potatoes, mushrooms and minimal cheese. As potatoes are also on the side didn’t need potatoes in omelet. Could have added tomatoes. Rosemary potatoes were good.

    The food here comes quickly, which is great. It may be a little too quickly, perhaps. I ordered a fish taco, and one wasn't fully cooked-even on the smaller, thinner end. A mistake that should have been caught in the kitchen. The rest of the meal was very good though!

    My salmon was prepared nicely, however, the vegetables were not cooked. The cioppino broth was average in flavor, needed more spice as it should be. Our server, Steve, was outstanding!

    Parking is a mess, so plan ahead for that. Gorgeous, iconic location with ok food and mediocre service. If it wasn’t for the location and views I would say definitely don’t bother. Unfortunate they couldn’t do better

    Food was good. Service was slow as they only had one waiter assigned to all the outdoor tables. Not his fault…inadequate staffing. Ambience was nice, great ocean view, can be difficult to find parking.

    Great location! Portions were fair, not overly done, drinks were good but the food did not have much flavor - pasta, fish and risotto. View is spectacular and it did not smell as some people expect given proximity to Children's pool.

    We ate for a birthday lunch. We ordered the surf and turf wrap and being from San Diego the carne Asada was on point and comparable to tacos shops. The size of the burrito was ok for the price. We also ordered the French toast and by far one of the best I’ve eaten. Service was ok, food was good.

    It was fine. Expensive for what we got and if I am going to spend that much for brunch.. i would just go to one of the other million restaurants on the street with better views. We were given a “nice” table.. behind the glass door on the veranda when there was another table that would have worked better. I put it was for a special occasion. I doubt i will go back.
