Went for lunch on Easter and thoroughly enjoyed it! The service was amazing and the atmosphere on the patio overlooking the Capitola Beach was perfect! Our waitress did a fantastic job and it was a overall great experience!

Food is pretty good. They need to bring back the mussels plate they used to have. Service is good. Pretty crowded, not a lot of elbow space.

We loved being able to sit on the patio, with a heater nearby. Service was attentive. In general the food was delicious, except our guest who ordered the Flat Iron Steak medium-rare received it medium-well; and even the second try by the kitchen came out the same way. We figure it was because the...

Went in with a group of 8. Easily set reservation online and made changes without messing it up. Service was great. The timing of service was great. The food was delicious! Our entire group was satisfied. We were there on March 8 before all the restrictions on social gatherings.

Ww had such a wonderful stay at the dream inn and dinner. We decide to forgo our breakfast reservation at crows nest and had eggs Benedict here. It was the best eggs Benedict I have ever had. AMAZING thank you. I just booked 2 nights in May. Looking forward to Jack O’Neill’s an eggs Benedict.

La Posta has done a remarkable job, creating a pleasant outdoor dining room in its usual parking lot. I hope they keep the outdoor space indefinitely.

I ordered 3 lemon drop cocktails and the 1st 2 were about 2 two thirds full and nowhere near the top of the glass. On the 3rd I mentioned that they were not full so our lovely waitress told the bartender. The 3rd appeared to be full but then I noticed it was just in a smaller glass.

Lunch with friend, had the wedge salad and a dose of scalloped potatoes. Delicious. Only complaint is the chairs are wood and hard so wish they had pads.

During the novel corona virus pandemic, we could only order take out for our 33rd anniversary. We ordered all starters: the asparagus speared with dipping sauce, a roasted pear salad, and a shrimp in aioli. The asparagus spears are cornmeal and sesame crusted with just a hint of sweetness, always...

We went for Burger Week and the menu was hard to understand plus the waiter didn't ask how we wanted our meat cooked. Their website says "We serve grass-fed burgers, but only one of the burgers offered was grass-fed. That's the one we ordered and it was very good. The service was slow, but we...

Great food and service. My Cobb salad was very good; my husband's skirt steak was divine and my aunt's hamburger was huge. The bartender made a killer Lemon Drop martini.
