The food and wine along with our servers were the best. We had to eat outside due to the COVID 19 issues but it was very nice. There were heaters to keep the area warm and on Sunday night there was music too.

During the pandemic, they are serving dinner outside. You sit on picnic tables that are hard and uncomfortable. They do provide blankets which we sat on to soften the bench. They recently purchased 6 heating lamps. Unfortunately, they were not placed so that the picnic tables received any heat. Their menu is limited unlike what they normally serve in the dining room. It was my husband's birthday and I was disappointed. If you go, please be prepared with coats and more blankets.

Dinner was outside on picnic tables, it was rustic but nice. There was live music that made a terrific background. The service was great. We had Prime Rib and surf and turf. The meal was tasty and well prepared. I was not impressed by the quality of the Prime Rib meat itself.

During Covid regulations, they did an awesome job ensuring there was a safe distance between tables and nearly everyone wore a mask. The food as always was wonderful.

Miguel was a great server. Everyone followed COVID-19 guidelines and we were seated outside away from other people.
Wife had chicken piccata and I had scallops. Food was excellent although the sauce for the scallops was a little different than I am used to. Scallops cooked perfectly. Would definitely go back.

Ordered Prime Rib. Asked how I wanted it done. I said Medium Rare or if they had an End Cut I’d have that. It wasted an end cut and was well done. Food was quite good but no as requested.

Super limited menu, especially for a vegan. I had the choice of a plain salad, and the asparagus from my husband's prime rib plate. Understandably, this is a difficult time to run a business, but if folks are willing to travel during Coronavirus epidemic, try to make the experience enjoyable. The service was very good, courteous, quick and responsive. Other than the lack of options on the menu, it was a good option.

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.

We have eaten here several times and always enjoyed. We ordered Scampi and Crab Cakes appetizers and Pork Chop and Scallops for entrees. The shrimp was good, the crab cake were mostly filler w/very little to no crab. The pork chop was good, tender and juicy. The scallops were perfectly cooked. The sides were a clump of mashed potatoes and undercooked green beans. The scallops were covered in a mushroom sauce and sprinkled with shredded Parmesan which was not needed or tasty. I scraped it all off and ate the scallops. We ordered drinks from the bar and my gin & tonic had very little tonic with no bubble, no ice or lime. I tried a sip and left the rest.
We would go back to try again as we felt maybe they were still trying to get back up and running. Hopefully, they can get it together soon. We love Cambria.

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? 🙂

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

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.
