For a restaurant in a Ritz Carlton I found the food just OK and the service to be honest was not good at all. The waiter had no clue how items were prepared and could not articulate ingredients. Typically an eatery at a high end hotel has a better quality of food and servers.
Sorry to say I would not eat here again. One redeeming thing, the location was beautiful.

The food was ok. Nothing very special. The street was very noisy during dinner. The service was excellent. There is a loud club next to the restaurant. This was not memorable.

Service was excellent when waiter was at your table, however overall service was OK - perhaps too many tables assigned to waiter.
We ordered a $89 seafood tower (our favorite item to order with memorable results in DC, NYC, Boston, Portland l, etc.). This was not good at all; little necks and oysters were salty - and all seafood lovers know what it means to have salty seafood).

Great location, but would hesitate to return.

Went for brunch. Food was good and so was the rum punch. Only complaint is we had to call our waiter every time. He didn't pay much attention to us. Would definitely go back.

I actually made this reservation for a friend who’s celebrating an early Valentines. They loved it! She said the service was on point. They shared a filet and lobster pasta (which I ordered this a few weeks ago.) I convinced her to get the croissant pudding for dessert and nothing but praised. Our friends said they rate the experience 15/5 stars. Burlock never disappoints!

The server, Fernando was excellent. Entrees were good and generous portions- scallops were delicious. The only disappointment was the desserts- they look better than they tasted. The apple crisp was large but the apples were bland. Do not order the key lime pie- it’s not pie, it’s a small thin, tart with hardly any filling ad way too much thick graham cracker crust all around it. Prices are high for the type of restaurant it is.

We have been here many times and this time the food was different and better than the excellent experience we remember, albeit at significantly higher prices than any of us recalled. There are no more mid-priced meals - it is either a “shareable” (aka appetizer) or an expensive meal that lived up to the price in presentation, portion, and taste. So a great review but they need to add one more $, as Burlock Coast is no longer the incredible value that kept us coming back without hesitation.

I made a reservation for 7:30, when I showed up with my date the hostess verbally stated that I requested a view by the window, kind of wish she just brought us there without stating aloud that I made the request, kind of corny.

Unfortunately the table with the ocean view I requested wasn’t available, that kind of sucked because I was hoping for a romantic setting, which is why I made the reservation in the first place, we settled for a booth.

Since it’s attached to the Ritz there’s a decent amount of traffic, good for people watching.

The food was outstanding. We had ordered off the Thursday night tapas menu. Had the octopus, which was my favorite, among other things like the Brussel sprouts, the ahi poke, pretzels with cheese, etc. I had the roasted golden tilefish for dinner, it was fire flames, the food was easily the best part of the night. Also, dollar oysters? Dope.

Our server was extraordinary and offered some great suggestions, I forget his name, matter of fact my date and I forgot his name almost immediately, it was difficult to pronounce. Whoever he is, he was great.

Our server got a little busy towards the end of our meal and wish he checked back a little more frequently, we probably would’ve ordered more drinks. My date had the sangria, which she loves, and I had an old fashioned. My drink was good, not outstanding but good. The drinks arrived a little late and we got one of our apps before the drinks arrived, that’s my only compliant but I’ve bartended for years so I get it. I can’t fault the server for that.

After our meal we were going to bar hop to a few places but it started to pour. We went outside and sat on the couches with the fireplace, had a few nightcaps and dropped another $50 on drinks.

Overall it was good experience, would recommend.

First, we go to at least 2 new restaurants a week and this by far hit our top 5 list. The food on all levels was phenomenal and the service was top notch. Very professional yet personable. This is a trendy and comfortable spot - good for date night or night out with friends! Not one complaint. We will be back. Shout out to Todd our server; you were awesome!!

Food was cold and meat was dry, pork tasted like it had artificial smokey flavoring and tasted horrible. The service as well was horrible our server ignored us until we asked for the bill, never asked why so little of the food was eaten and made us fell as she was doing a favor by her serving us. My recommendation is to not go there.

This was the 2nd time I've been here. The service and attention to detail is outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive without being annoying. Great selection of beer, wine, rums and they have a build your own old fashioned menu that is really cool. Outstanding view of the beach and ocean and they have outdoor seating.

The food was fabulous. The service was even more fabulous. We sat outside and it was a little breezy chilly and their heaters worked great. Prices were high but we thought it was all worth it. Must try the smoked fish dip, the lobster pasta had tons of lobster in it and was delicious, tried the pulled pork burger but without the burger which they kindly changed and it was delicious too. We enjoyed the atmosphere overall.
