The food was fantastic as usual but our service was not. Last time we had the same server and he was wonderful. Maybe it was an off-night. We will try The Calcutta Grill again in hopes that the service is better. Great ambiance and delicious desserts!

The Calcutta Grill was elegant and comfortable for a laid back Sunday brunch. Food was outstanding, and so was the courteous, attentive service. Views were exceptional of course, given the location.

This was our choice for a birthday lunch for my brother, and it was all we hoped for: good food and personable service. Best was their leaving us to visit longer after eating. A Sunday brunch 3 weeks earlier was just as welcoming and tasty even though it was for 7, 3 of us under 12 years. The view changes with weather but is always splendid.

I will continue to go to Calcutta Grill because the view is second to none. It's worth it. But the food... Really needs some work. We usually go here for brunch and on the last 2 occasions my waffles came out stone cold. First time there was a wait (service can be very iffy at this restaurant) so I figured it was because of that. Last time, though, they came out almost immediately and were also stone cold. The butter on top didn't even come close to being melty. I sent them back and it took longer this time, but they were still not very warm. I can't figure out if they cook and hold in a way that doesn't keep them warm or if they're microwaved from frozen. They're okay waffles, but nothing to write home about even when they are hot. The sausage is usually pretty good as is the bacon and my husband seems pleased with his eggs, though the potatoes are frequently under-cooked. The coffee is good if you can get someone to give you a refill. So, overall, the food is so-so at best, the service is inconsistent, but the view is outstanding. So lower your expectations and enjoy the view!

Food and drinks made up for the terrible terrible service they have. I complained to the hostess about our server's absence but there was not much difference. She in fact did even a better job not showing up. We were there for my wife's birthday and they did not do their job very will. This restaurant is great for a sunny day and the views. Nothing else.

I had specific request in my open table reservation and nothing was followed through.

If you are coming here for a special occasion, hopefully it's not that special.

I can actually see beautiful Newcastle Golf Club from my house and dine there often, always enjoying the ambiance, food and view. We went there last week with another couple that we celebrate birthdays with every year, always at Calcutta Grill. We were a little surprised and disappointed that they no longer do a special dessert for such occasions, so probably will find some where else to dine next year. We will continue to patronize your restaurant and enjoy the food and the view, just not for any special events. Thank you.

Our Pi Ladies Group met here for lunch. Table was great - beautiful view from Tacoma to Bothell, Olympics to Cascades. Quiet atmosphere, prompt service and we all enjoyed our lunch. Then sat and talked for an hour in a beautiful, quiet, comfortable atmosphere. Will come again and play mini golf on the beautiful Rusty Putter greens.

Thank you! Valerie

Very disappointing! This was a special occasion celebration for my husband and I and Our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration. Our very First Date was a Sunday Brunch at Calcutta Grill-Golf Club at Newcastle over 10 years ago.

Reservations were made well in advance with comment stating our Anniversary. We weren’t expecting anything extra, however we were expecting a server that was professional. Instead we were greeted with a sarcastic tone that proceeded throughout our dining experience. He seemed very immature making our dining experience uncomfortable. Our request for sugar was forgotten, drink order late after my husband received his. There was no mention of a Happy Anniversary like other local restaurants, hotel that we visited over weekend.

In the past, we have reserved group dining, thanksgiving and many other occasions with a pleasurable outcome. Unfortunately, this occasion was not a pleasurable one.

Perfect evening to sit on the patio. Bagpiper was terrific. Service was excellent, although a little slow (had more to do with the kitchen than the servers, I believe). Our out-of-town guest was awed by the view, the food, and the extraordinary golf course - wants to come back and play it some day. Thanks for a great experience.

Shame on us for always going back for the view to always be disappointed with the consistently BAD service. We were there to celebrate a 91st birthday on a Monday night. They had one server covering the entire restaurant and the manager was nowhere to be found. We waited for everything and I had to go find someone to take our dessert order. When I spoke to the manager, instead of owning it, he started making excuses. This place needs to seriously revamp their staff training as it is always lousy service. Food runners, remove the dirty dishes and someone please fill our water glasses which did not occur in the 2.5 hours we sat there for dinner. Amazing view, mainly good food, unfortunately always horrible service.

Came here for brunch on a Sunday and it was pretty quiet. Food is average and not worth it for the price or portion size. My friend lived nearby so we wanted to try it out. Since it's located at a very nice golf course, you're pretty much paying for the nice scenery and nothing more.

We arrived, and were seated promptly at a nice table by the window. We really enjoyed the bagpiper at sunset. 30 minutes after we ordered we asked for a basket of bread. Ten minutes later our salads arrived. 40 minutes after we ordered. I took my first bite of our salad and our entrées came. They offered to take them back to the kitchen but we didn't want them to sit under heat lamps while we ate our salads so they crowded all of the food onto the table. The bread, Caesar salads, fish and chips and the short ribs were good. The prime rib wasn't very good and our friend sent back the seafood pasta. He ordered something else but it was awkward because then the second plate of food came when the rest of us were almost done eating. There was no effort to compensate for the shortcomings. Maybe a comped dessert or something. It was loud in the restaurant but you can't beat the view. We've been there many times and the food has always been good and timing of the food has always been good. Not sure what happened this time.

Food quality & service is above average; can get bogged down if large groups or other event is happening during your visit due to limited kitchen capacity. Location is great for scenic views and sunsets, or a walk through the golf course after your meal, which is probably more the reason people go here vs. the food. Been here a few times and would return again.
