Chandler's - Cape Rey Carlsbad, a Hilton Resort Ratings and Reviews
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!
We were visitors from out of state and decided on this restaurant since it was located near the ocean and had live music. When we arrived, they seated us on the patio and later we found out that the live band was going to be played on the other patio. We had a terrible experience with our service as we had to ask for bread, plates, refill on drinks and our food order came out wrong and was sent back. We both ordered the surf and turf and for the price we paid, we deserved much better service and food quality. We asked to speak to a manager when we left and they said that Manager Paren was in a meeting and couldn't speak with us. Then, we spoke to the GM of the Hotel who then stated that the Manager Matt of restaurant was in a meeting. We stated we thought the manager was Paren? He then said, well Matt is probably in a meeting with Paren. Good cover up! Anyways, the GM stated he would see what he could do about our experience, but never asked for our name or number. They obviously are not open to feedback, nor do they care about their customers experience. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone! I never write reviews, but was so disappointed that I am taking the time to make sure no on else has this experience.
Been enjoying Chandler meals here for years until now
Surprised to hear that it's the same chef??? The food is disappointing and flavorless . We had the lobster tacos and Ahi One of our parties meals was served after everyone else was finished! Not enjoyable
The food was excellent but the restaurant has a "diner/sports bat feel inside. They do have seating outside but very little shade coverage in the blazing sun. The meal took well over an hour after ordering and the soup and entrée were delivered at the same time.
I rarely pick on wait staff in a review. They are usually battling to keep their tables happy and when things go awry it's usually a food issue. But not today. Let me start by saying they had few patrons and a surplus of staff at brunch. Our drinks took 20 minutes and obviously had been sitting waiting to be picked up because they were both watery. (a particular sin if you're a martini drinker!) 15 or 20 minutes after we put in our food order our waitress came to apologetically say she saw they were plating our entrees. I thought this was a good sign they at least recognized the delay. In fact, I saw a pair of entrees put up on the counter and hoped they were ours. That is, until 20 minutes later a waitress walked over and plopped a cold side of fries on one and delivered them to us. Wouldn't have minded if they were busy, but no fewer than three of the staff stood there gabbing while our food went cold. An hour and a half after arriving our food came, room temp. Very disappointing experience.
