Travelzoo hotel package including dinner entree + a wine bottle for each room, a very good value and the hotel restaurant food is excellent. We order 4 different entree & they were all good or very good except the shrimp is on the salty side (filet mignon, scallop, halibut, ribeye + shrimp). The lodge garden is beautiful. Highly recommend this lodge & dining there.

What a fantastic experience! We came to the Central Coast to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday, and we were delighted with our night out at Cambria Pines Lodge. All courses were delicious, the waiter did a fine job, and the complimentary birthday dessert was excellent! Be sure to ask for it if you're celebrating a birthday.

The food, while pricey, is tasty, and the servers are very nice and attentive. Ours was part of the hotel package, so it was a nice opportunity to try the food without paying full price.

It’s our 3rd time coming here. The ambiance is wonderful and the crowd is nice. Pedro is super cool and he’s the best server. We always enjoy our dinner here. If you like top-sirloin, you’re in the right place - at least it’s pretty good for me. Happy New Year 🎊🎆🎈 everyone!!!

I am mixed about our experience at the Lodge's dining room. We ate Christmas dinner and, without question, they are already renowned for their holiday ambiance. The four of us ordered prime rib dinners, the meat perfectly prepared. The green beans were simple and al dente. The mashed potatoes were average but not offensive. And speaking about offensive...there was no excuse for the poorly prepared Caesar Salad. The kitchen should consider first impressions. There is zero excuse for the shoddy effort in composing the Salad. Though the croutons were decent (using their leftover bread) the romaine was wilted and black on the edges. I am a Caesar expert. This is a pet peeve. If my family wasn't present, I'd have loudly complained. There was no effort to trip the top, limp and outside leaves. To make matters worse, the dressing wasn't balanced and the first Tate was acetic. I would expect this from a diner. However, the meat was excellent so I would return but with caution.

Service and food was excellent. Felt sorry for the waiter having to work on Christmas Eve but it was good for us. We have eaten here before and always had a great experience. We are from Bakersfield but have a home in Cambria and it's nice to have a place when people come to visit us when we are here.

The food is always good. But our waiter seem to be preoccupied. Although it was a moo and they were not busy by any means. The salad I wanted it wasn't offered because they didn't have candied walnuts available, so I requested Brussels sprouts, they didn't have them either, at the waiter didn't advise me until he serve my entrée.

The food was the star for me at the Cambria Pines. I had the crab cakes appetizer, served as 3 balls of crab cakes on a tasty aioli drizzle. The were tasty but more on the "cake" side than the crab side - almost like crab hush puppies. I then enjoyed their NY strip was cooked as I ordered it - medium rare.. The side of green beans was freshly prepared and al dente. The choice of central coast wines was good. The atmosphere was pretty basic and quite loud in the main dining room. The fireplace bar area looked like a fun place for the young at heart.

The food was very good, and our waiter was attentive. We were, however, very disappointed in the fact that the fireplace was not "turned on." I had made the reservations a month ago, on Open Table, requesting to be seated, by the fireplace. Your reservation stated that request, and I reminded them, both on the phone and as we were being seated. We got there an hour early, to make sure that the room wasn't filled up. They tried to seat us in a different room, after all of my reminders. I, again, had to go to the desk, and tell them that a month ago, I had made the reservations, through Open Table, requesting the room with the fireplace. They, then, moved us, but the fireplace was never turned on! The room with cold. It was a major disappointment for us. We drove 350 miles to get there, for a special experience. Next time, we will go elsewhere. J. Andre'

We went there for Thanksgiving Dinner. The Buffett was delightful and everything was so delicious. I usually don’t like buffets as the food isn’t hot enough. I was very happy that everything was warm and not dried out. The perfect ambiance for a Thanksgiving dinner.

This was a thanksgiving buffet that was a cut above any other venue like it. Although the service was not great and the ambiance was less than we would have liked, there were eleven in our group and they had to put us in the banquet room with other bigger groups. THE FOOD MADE UP FOR THAT PLUS SOME! It was terrific

Food great, service terrible. When we got there there was a line out the door and the hostess was answering the phone rather than addressing in-person guests. They ran out of menus and turned away a party of four on the basis of space when there were 10+ fourtops open that did not fill up over the hour we were dining. Children kept running around the restaurant screaming which doesn’t uphold the “charming” or “romantic” vibe I read about before making reservations. The prices are astronomic for this level of service, but they get away with it because it’s a tourist town and there aren’t many other options. Do not recommend.

When we first walked in, we were seated promptly. The noise level was fine, and the decor and lighting were nice. However, we ordered a caesar salad, but the waitor forgot and he never brought it. He also only stopped by to take our orders, bring our food, and give us the bill. He never offered to bring a drink refill or ask how the food was. We ordered the salmon, a fish special, a side of brussel sprouts, and the chocolate cake dessert. Everything was great besides the brussel sprouts, which were hard and had a very unpleasant taste. Overall the food here was pretty good, however the service was poor.

I brought my wife here for her birthday while on vacation. Everything was perfect. The calamari appetizer was great. We had the surf and turf, the steak had an amazing char and the prawns were amazing, the prime rib was perfectly medium rare and extremely tender. The Bailey's ice cream pie was a perfect end to the meal. Our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing, had great conversation, and was very welcoming. Overall a fantastic experience.

It was a last minute choice because all other places suggested were not taking anymore rsvps. We decided to give this establishment a try and the result absolutely terrible food. All I can tell you lol ok elsewhere to eat the meals here are expensive and the execution is extremely bad. I order the Prime rib and that was nothing like a prime rib. It was gross hospital looking food. The calamari was imitation not real calamari cut into strips and The portobello steak was as insipid and sad looking. The server was friendly and very nice. Kitchen people need better training if they want to keep charging clients prime prices but less than mediocre execution.
