Beautiful location outside by the Bay
Casual atmosphere. Our waiter David was very cheerful and helpful in describing the menu. Good was delicious however my pasta did was just lukewarm. I did not send it back as it would spoiled my dining experience with my husband and it was very busy.
I told the waiter about it he apologized and gave us free dessert
It’s very expensive great fir special occasions

The service was great and the food was very good. It was the antithesis of yesterday with regards to the food and falls into line with the ratings of others. Being a bit picky, the grilled chicken was overcooked but bearing in mind this was Thanksgiving and the attention was probably much more on the critical items. It was really good dinner supported by excellent service.

We always try to eat here when in the area. However, they have changed the menu and increased the prices. Although our servers were very pleasant they needed more training. Not sure that we would recommend this restaurant any more. The best thing about our experience was that the valet knew how to park our Tesla electric car and it was charged while we ate dinner.

It was saved by the service quality. The tables were sticky dye to the varnish being broken down by the cleaning fluid; a table cloth would have solved the problem. The salmon was first overcooked and the second cooked properly but was wrecked by the oily content. My wife had a severely upset stomach that was possibly the crême brûlée. It is a very nice restaurant that encourages the hopes of a great dinner but that was not the case. All that being said, these are difficult times and there may well have been a 'lack of staff' issues. We'll give it another go.

the staff was amazing, very accommodating and friendly. the food was awesome. We will definitely be back, all 5 star except the ambiance. the dining areas were nice but we didn’t feel they made good use of the space and the tables were small and chairs uncomfortable. If they had a more intimate setting not so close to others, it would have been 5 stars all around.

Nice restaurant located inside the Hotel Zamora. Valet parking only, but the server will validate your ticket. Braised ribs in pasta was on point. The salmon had a nice crust but once you got past that, the fish was a bit bland. Mixed drinks are outrageously priced for what you get. They had a live jazz band that provided good background music. Overall, it was good, but wouldn't come here again.

The food was wonderful. My only negative is nothing came with the entree. Beautiful and delicious piece of sea bass on rice, that was it. It was a
not inexpensive, so in lieu of the price it would seem that perhaps bread and an additional vegetable.
Would love to see this happen.

Atmosphere was not the best. Too bright and very noisy. Food was just ok. Bacon wrapped scallops on a bed of polenta, bacon was undercooked, polenta was good. Filet was cooked properly but rubbery, needed a hard sear on outside. Asparagus was old and discolored . I don't mind paying for great quality but this meal missed the mark. We were so excited to eat here because the reviews were so great but were ultimately disappointed.

Front of hotel totally inaccessible due to construction with little to no signs to indicate access so had to call. Put us in uncomfortable booth so we changed to outside terrace where music was too loud so had to ask to lower volume. Both our appetizers served cold so they took those off bill. Main dish ok. Left before dessert. At these prices would have wanted much better experience so this ruined date night.
