The service good, our waiter was friendly. View of the ocean.
We attended Easter brunch and was very underwhelmed by the selection and quality of the food. Way overpriced based on the ambiance and food. Service was pleasant and attentive.
Melt-in-your-mouth rib eye steak and fresh Carlsbad strawberries in the salad! Unexpectedly delicious food for a nondescript little restaurant tucked into a hotel lobby. We'll be back for sure.
While the food selection & quality were fine, our waiter had a smart aleck attitude from the word go. Went on slow night, but staff didn't even notice we had an OpenTable reservation. Listing picture also misleading, as the ocean is a parking lot and 4 lane road away. Probably fine for patrons of the hotel, but wouldn't bother if it's a night out from home.
We were in town for the Carlsbad Marathon and didn't feel like fighting crowds at the local restaurants. For what we would have considered a limited service hotel, the restaurant offered a full service atmosphere, menu and great food. It is right off the lobby so the ambience is not a wow but it was a very nice meal and a quick elevator ride home.
I wont say much. Couple of things-
-i ordered a veggie pasta, whch came out in decent time. But was shocked to see the pasta to be rather soupy :-(. Thankfully there was soup spoon provided.
-i asked for wine list, and as if they did not have any wine on the menu, i never got my hand on the menu..
Nice restaurant, casual atmosphere, both indoor & outdoor dining. Here for lunch, nice menu choices. Food well prepared, fresh ingredients, tasty, nice portion size. Server attentive, knew menu well, personable. Close to the ocean, but not ocean view. If you are looking for a casual, quiet atmosphere and good food, this restaurant worth the trip.
Great value, food, service and atmosphere, with outstanding live music. We loved it
Typical low end hotel food and service. Thought it would be better, but not as expected. Acceptable, but could do better.
