    Servicer did not approach our table for 35 mins. After which, we had to finally get up to remind them that no server has approached our table yet. Despite that, food was great and outdoor seating had a nice ambience. Just don’t expect stellar service.

    Did the Valentine’s Day experience here. The food was great, the view was amazing, the romantic setting was perfect. The service however was fair… it was a 3 course meal and I felt like they were rushing us through each course. We got our salads and before we even finished our salads the main meal came, so we had to put the salads aside to put the main meal on the plate, leaned over and finished the salad then immediately into the main meal…. I did not like that, it felt like we were rushed and wasn’t able to enjoy the Romance of the evening with my wife. The table next to us sat there for 40 mins before being recognized, it wasn’t until the husband stood up to say something. Overall, everything but the service was great.

    I had made reservations and requested bar seating as we went out for a large lunch. When we got there we were advised that the bar was closed. They said they would seat us outdoors, I said no, too cold, so they took us to a table for 10 in a separate room, I did not want to sit at a large table, being that there were only 2 of us. The menu was very limited--web site did not state regular menu not available. There were 3 fish entrees offered, and 2 raviloi dishses--lobster and mushroom. And the prices were expensive-- $30.00 somthing for mushroom raviloi We left and went elsewhere. I have eaten there before on a non holiday and it was great.

    It was our 2nd annual Valentine's Day dinner at the Canyons at the Crossings. We went again because we enjoyed it last year. I did think it lacked some of the ambiance and service from the past year and was more expensive too. However, the food was good, and we still enjoyed the evening.

    Made 5pm reservation to watch the sunset. When we arrived the dining room was closed. Apparently they don't serve dinner there anymore. Makes the description on OpenTable a joke. Also the "stunning ocean views" is pretty exaggerated. The food at the bar was ok and the service was pretty good but this place is way over-rated!

    A late post for those that live in the community. A very lack luster event in comparison to years past. Past years your team had made a great event. This year was flat. Golf course had low attendance for this day. This would be a draw after a full round of golf. TV's all had glare. No large high pixel TV. Just a heads up. I am very glad I did not reach out to many in my community who live in Aviara. We do attend events and I do post on my social page.

    The view was absolutely gorgeous (snow capped mountains on one side and the beautiful ocean view on the other). The golfing staff was wonderful. However, the food/bar service and the food left much to be desired. It took roughly 15 minutes and 3-4 times of flagging someone down and asking for the heater to be turned on outside. We were seated for at least 20 minutes before our drink order was taken and again we had to flag someone down. I'm glad that we were not in a hurry. The food wasn't that great. I got the chilaquiles, which were really dry and ridiculously spicy.. (yes, I can handle a decent amount of heat). It was still hot after asking for some crema to help cool it down. After golfing we visited the bar area and it took roughly 10 minutes for someone to take our order. We came for the deal we got during the holidays for the food, driving range and golf discount. After our experience here, we probably wouldn't return despite the deal. The golf course looks beautiful driving by, and had it not been water logged it may have been great, but the soggy, tore up course combined with our less than stellar experience at the restaurant and bar just didn't match our expectations.

    We were seated promptly upon arrival and taken to a nice view table, for Saturday brunch.. A server arrived soon and took our drink and food order. When our food arrived, we still did not have our drink order. We told the person who brought our food, and he went to the bar and came back with the drinks. The restaurant was not busy, so it's a mystery why our server wasn't able to deliver them. We both had the Chilaquiles, one with Machaca and one with Charizo. Both were excellent and more than we could eat there. Excellent food will bring us back again!

    It is a great place to have breakfast or lunch during weekend. I prefer to be seated outside since I can enjoy the view and the sun. All staff members are friendly and welcoming. Food tastes great. I would be back for another weekend brunch with my friends.

    Indoor seating for Sunday brunch was way too loud with live music. Couldn't carry on conversation so moved outside. Was hoping for buffet but a la carte only with limited menu and no Eggs Benedict!? $22 bottomless mimosas eased the pain. Great views

    Disappointed in our Sunday brunch. The prices on their online menu were not the same when we received our bill. Drinks were 2-3 dollars more. Someone needs to update their menu prices. The server was attentive at the beginning and then disappeared for a long period of time. I don't recommend.

    The Crossings is trying very hard to make the brunch experience a great experience. The food was outstanding, but the selection was not as good as it was in past years. The Christmas decorations were above average. It is a shame the economy dictated the number of people at the Crossings were not at full capacity. Overall, I enjoyed the visit even though it was a it pricy at $75.00 per person.

    WASTE OF MONEY!!! Steak was not properly done, sent back and still not good, heavy on salt (WASTE OF MONEY)!!!! Left waitress a good tip even though there was 3 other people helping us(thanks Carter) because our waitress only checked on us on 2 times. She was too concern on pleasing the loud drunk golfers who was whistling at the bridal party. I usually love the food but I was embarrassed bringing my friends after I told them how good the food was. I was here last week and the steak was perfect as always but this was just a waste. Management is alway very friendly but I think because the wedding very busy. I just could not believe the service was so horrible!

    It took quite a while to get seated for our reservation. Servers were very nice!! The food took a very long time to come out. Skip the fish and chips. Very little fish and lots of batter and the coating was soft instead of crispy. They only had one dessert to offer, cheesecake. I won’t be back.

    Beautiful location, large banquet room but stops there! Service was total lacking! One waiter for the indoor and outdoor tables. Our reservation was at 10:15 am on Sunday. When we arrived very few diners yet, even then service was poor. Eventually we were able to get beverages and we decide to order right away. Took forever for the food to arrive and when it did it was lukewarm. We were able to get a beverage refill prior to finishing our breakfast. We would only recommend it for golf & beautiful location but not for the food venues. Totally mismanaged!!!
