Chandler's - Cape Rey Carlsbad, a Hilton Resort Ratings and Reviews
T'was the night of winter formals and bar mitzvahs. We arrived just in time for the teens to depart. Garrett took care of us at the bar with a peach bourbon mule and a blood orange old fashion, both delicious. Then the accommodating hostesses sat us near the fire pit on the patio. Zach took care of our food services. We had 2 glasses of Albarino, always nice to find on a menu, 2 ciopinnos and the salted caramel vanilla profiteroles. The ciopinno was a bit creamier than we are used to, but you know what, it was still light and lovely. We are from Fallbrook but were camping across the way, about a 20min walk to our site so perfect to work up and off an appetite. Would definately recommend for locals or lucky travelers.
Service was great, food was delicious and good portions! I had the salmon and Parmesan risotto with bacon asparagus and it was delicious, I’d definitely go back for it! My husband had the short ribs which he liked but wanted a bit more flavor. We sat in the patio and they were very accommodating with getting the heaters set up by us so we were comfortable. Sunset view was beautiful from the patio. Great experience all in all!
Mahi Fish Tacos were great! Our server, Justin, was super helpful and friendly. Very few vegetarian options for my girlfriend to choose from and a pretty loud table of kids next to us. Overall the service and food were great though. Price was moderate. Would go again but it's not something that is a destination restaurant unless you're there for sunset to see the beautiful views.
We chose Chandler’s to celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary. The hostess was friendly and sat us immediately. The waiter was busy with many tables to attend to. However, the couple at the table behind us was given a lot of attention, due to the fact that they got married earlier that day. Our appetizer came promptly after ordering. Our entree’s and check took more time. My husband and I made our night special but would not return to this restaurant. Every year we go out for our anniversary , this is the first time it was not acknowledged by restaurant staff. Perhaps, it was an off night, but we shall never know.
We visited Chandlers for my husbands birthday. The service was great. Our waiter was very attentive, and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to accommodate. We ordered the calamari appetizer, but were a bit disappointed because it was soggy, and the breading was falling off, maybe due to the fact that the dish may have been waiting for a while before it was served. All the main dishes were fine, except the risotto that came with the salmon(which was delicious), the risotto was extremely oily and even though the taste was good, it was the oiliest risotto I've ever had. The ambiance was good as always, it's a very picturesque location, and I never get tired of the ocean view.
I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. We got to seat in the patio with very romantic atmosphere. I had no regret taking my wife here because the service was great as well as their food options. Definitely the best spot to take your date or spouse for a special occassion.
A few dishes were good, most were average or below average. The waiter was bad. The support staff was all good. I was disappointed with the overall food quality and very disappointed by the service. The salmon was tasteless as were the chicken sandwiches. Chicken and shrimp and lobster nachos were good, however the cilantro in them was bad. There was a beef medallions special, it was good.
Staff was friendly but overwhelmed with the thanksgiving dinner. The waiter got behind and never caught up. Missed opportunnies for additional drinks; never checked on the food; the poor bus person was caught getting waived down every time we needed something.
Food was the best and wine pairing had the BEST wines selected. Only improvement would be to have the pairings poured immediately after food is served. We got our pours way too late and there weren't that many people at the time we went which was 1:00. Our waitress was great but the one who assisted her with the pours. was way behind. The food was the Best. Chef was beyond. Presentation was on fleek and wow the tastes surpassed expectations. Everyone comment on how good the food was. Several times during the course. I had the beef and it was prepared just how I like it. Great Job. Looking forward to next year with happy hours in between.
After sitting outside with drinks and watching a wonderful sunset, we moved inside to a table with a view of the ocean. I did the prime ribeye steak and my wife had the short ribs. I have to say that I have never had a ribeye with more flavor. In fact, I can say it was the best ribeye I have ever enjoyed. We will definitely be coming back. My wife’s short ribs were tender and flavorful. It was all wrapped up with the best service we have experienced thanks especially to our waiter named Zach. He was attentive, nothing was an issue with him, and he made us feel that we were truly welcome!
Made the reservation weeks in advance since my adult children were visiting. First time dining at this restaurant. They did not reserve an outside table for us although I requested it weeks before. Food was average. Had the lobster Tacos. Nothing special for such an expensive entree. Food took too long to receive. Wine list is medicore. Service was average dispite the fact that the dining room was not full. Decor is dated. Best thing was we were able to watch TV from our table. The bar is in the dining room. They charge for parking even if you are dining with them. Will not return.
Would not recommend based upon our experience. When I made the reservation I mentioned we were celebrating an "anniversary". We were seated promptly on the patio but then never acknowledged, or helped, after that. We waited quite a long time before deciding that was not the experience we were looking for that night and left. The food prices, and selection, looked adequate but we did not have the chance to sample anything.
We were celebrating my son's birthday. The waitress hardly ever came by. We were starving - had to ask for bread once we finally saw her. They were having an event at the other side of the restaurant and the wait staff was stretched thin. There was hardly even an apology. I would expect more for having paid what I did. It's pretty pricey here. You're really paying for the view - which was pretty spectacular. It also helped that we were staying at the hotel. Doubt I'd come back though.
Always love to come here for business lunches (after the lunch time crush) for the view, the unique menu, and the service. Tried the albacore tuna today and it was excellent. Prices are not cheap, but the service and view make it a great spot for a casual get together or business casual lunch. I enjoy that they remember me, the table I prefer, and listen to my order so I don't get foods I can't eat due to allergic reactions. A plus!
