Very romantic meal in the fireplace room. Luis, our server, was here last time we were here an is excellent. We had every need taken care of without pretentious, high brow attitude. We will be back and we are bringing our small group next time.

Filet was not cooked as ordered. Overdone and very chewy. Green beans plain needed seasoning. Bread very good and mashed potatoes good. Service very good

The food at Cambria Pines Lodge is always great, but Sunday's meal was really special. And our server Miguel, was outstanding. If we could always have him as our server, we would request him for sure. An amazing evening!

My husband and I have been coming to Cambria for years. We never thought about Cambria Pines Lodge of having a restaurant but I am so glad I looked into it. We had the best experience. Martin our sever was very attentive and very nice. My husband had the scallops and I had the top sirloin with avocado chimmichuri. Both dishes were very delicious. The accommodations with the Covid-19 going on was done very well. Overall, this was a great experience and we will be back!

We used the escape package for our dinner and stay. The filet was excellent and the scallops were cooked perfect. The wine was ok, it got a little better after we let it breathe. We did notice that mashed potatoes were the only starch on the menu (on the fish items also). My husband asked for rice instead and they were able to accommodate his request. Our waiter was great.

Dinner was amazing. Had the filet and wife had surf and turf. She thought she got my filet by mistake because it was so tender. Her prawn scampi was delicious. Server was excellent. Our only complaint was that it was too quiet. Need a little music, maybe some slow jazz instrumental? 🙂

Great ambiance sitting outside in the fireplace nook. We took our dogs and they loved it! Food is really delicious, very fresh, and good variety of choices. Veggies and herbs are grown right on the property. Lovely garden with beautiful plants and flowers everywhere. Highly recommended!!

Obviously not prepared to open... Poor accommodations (ref not working , toilet seat broken, electrical outlet next to bed not operational.
Meal was over cooked - steak tough and overcooked / seafood overcooked and tough.
Our 20th wedding anniversary was disappointing. Not a clue what has happened to what was once a great destination - NEVER AGAIN

Even though we had reservations and had requested an outdoor table, when we arrived we were told none of that mattered. We were very disappointed with the dining room area. The service was mediocre.

Pretty slow evening. Wait Staff was nowhere to be found when needing something. You could here them laughing & talking in the kitchen. I had to hunt my waiter down to get my bill after waiting for 15 min at my table. I did make it known to him that I had to hunt him down to pay & wondered if they had left. He apologized but overall service was horrible & food was cold and overpriced.

The food was amazing. The portions were very generous. The variety of choices was outstanding including both vegan and gluten free options. Our server, Jose was very personable and attentive to our needs. The atmosphere is rustic. There are several smaller dining rooms with several tables in each. The noise level at times made quiet conversation quite difficult. That aside, the rooms are decorated individually and provide a charming ambiance. Overall, we give Cambria Pines Loge restaurant an Outstanding rating.

My husband ordered the Surf n' Turf. Delicious prawns, tasty top sirloin, a bit tough.
I had the Filet Mignon--very tast and tender. Had with yummy parmesan mashed potatoes. The house Cabernet Sauvignon was good too.

The restaurant is fine, if you get a table outside in one of their cool little enclaves. I did not eat inside, but it appeared not to be a nice. The food and service were good, but a little slow coming. We didn't get our check back for a long time and ended up hunting down our server, but only after asking multiple other servers for help.

Uncharacteristically poor service. Our party of 4 waited 15+ minutes for a waiter to come to our table, and THAT was only after one of us got up and asked an employee in the dining room if anyone was assigned to our table. After that, service was more normal. Food is reliably good, not great. Presentation is attractive. FYI, corkage was $15.

We had the dinner package at Cambria pines Lodge. The menu was limited. I had the fish, which was overcooked and dry. My husband had a steak which he enjoyed. The ambiance in the outdoor seating was lovely, and the service was good.

The staff were great, sat outside in a Kiva with a fire: nice.
The food was very ‘meat and two veggies’ ; just like gone food. Hearty and certainly not bad.
But no finesse and no sign of celebration of fresh organic ingredients : mash and gravy, a well cooked prime ribs, mushrooms in a heavy sauce. Meh

We stay at the Pines Lodge every year for our Anniversary. We like to go to their restaurant for dinner as well, it has wonderful food, and the staff attentive. We had a bottle of their Moonstone Cabernet, and it was a great choice to pair with our steak and shrimp.

The food and service are excellent. We always get the 'included' dinner so I can't really address value for the money spent. Only one time, years ago, did we have dicey service.
