My husband and I met with our good friend to spend some much missed time together due to the COVID. We enjoyed the beautiful restaurant and view surrounding it. The wine was great and our meals were perfect.

It’s a shame that Covid has put so many restrictions on all of us. I returned to Cayton’s for the awesome memory of the sunset, bison burger and lavender lemonade as well as the posh service. Service wasn’t quite posh and I’m very regretful that the new chef removed lavendar lemonade and bison burger from the menu.

It was a disappointing night.
The restaurant was understaffed.
Issues: 1 - We waiting too long for our water to be refilled (it was 90+ outside), 2 - When we got our food, we didn't have utensils, 3 - We didn't get our side dish with our entrees, we had to ask for it.
The food was good, but the whole experience just wasn't up to par.

This isn't their norm, but you have to call it like you see it.

Service was very good, brisket sandwich was tasteless with almost no meat on it. White bread for sandwich and cheese had no flavor. Fries were mediocre. View gorgeous.

The food was pretty basic and the hamburger was on the raw side of medium, which made it difficult to eat for both myself and my son. It was overpriced for the meal served. Next time, Five Guys!

Poor service, undercooked food, wrong food delivered. Meanwhile, the manager gabbed with an adjacent table for at least 45 minutes and was completely oblivious.

The food was not as good as anticipated at such a nice resort. Had heard great things about Cayton’s - food wise - and was quite disappointed. I’d say the food was mediocre at best. The sunset, however, was spectacular!

Awesome views. Was disappointed in food, but great beverages. They were hosting a special event that evening so that might have accounted for "good" service rather than their usual "great" service. It's still a venue I would return to AND recommend.

Cayton's did not meet our expectations this time. The brisket flatbread was hard and cold and we had to ask various servers to bring ranch dip which was supposed to come with the buffalo cauliflower. The server was also curt and rushed. We've been dining at Cayton's for 5 years without disappointment and hope the food and service return to prior level of quality.

Under staffed. Out of daily special and it was only 6:00. Doors were left open to patio which made dining room freezing.

Food was great and server was very apologetic for being understaffed.

Beautiful outdoor patio area with excellent food. We were there at sunset, and it was exceptionally gorgeous. Joe was a very good server. Drinks took way too long to be brought to the table, but the food came out quickly. Food was tasty and prepared to perfection. We will be back. Certainly give strong recommendation for Cayton’s.

Great place for a nice evening of Wine & Dine. Great Menu slections that are not confusing as some place that have a small booklet requiring lengthy browsing time. If you want a very good dining Bistro with a gorgeous View then jump in your Car and head here. Best Foodie destination on Dove Mountain. You will not regret it. The entire staff is A+

We go to Caytons regularly. Unfortunately, this is the first time we’ve been disappointed. Service was slow. We frequently had to summon staff multiple times with our requests for more drinks, etc. our waiter said he had been assigned many tables and apologized for the slow service. Management needs to address having adequate staff, or they will begin losing customers ... regular ones like us.

We eat here several times per month. Normally we give high ratings for everything. However the service was well below par last Saturday. After we ordered, It took over 20 minutes to get our first drinks. Everything seemed out of sync. This has never happened to us here before. Not sure if it was a lack of staffing issue or what. We will try it again, but may have to reconsider if this level of service becomes the new norm.

Three of us having lunch on the patio enjoying the fish and chips special...... it was perfect. We are locals and dine here often and today was one of those winter days full of sunshine and you could sit outside mesmerized by the views good conversation and great food. From the time we were met at the door by Anthony and serviced perfectly by Vido.... we just had a spectacular day.

Fish and chips, their Friday special are not a value for what you get. Quality is fine, but portions leave you feeling hungry still.
