Dinned here as a weekend getaway for Lego land, overall the food was good, as they offer a la cart and options friendly for kids. The chef didn't get our order right 3 times so that was a bummer...we asked for no goat cheese and he kept on putting goat cheese on our omlet...not sure why =( But we sat outside, and there are plenty of seating. You can see the ocean and feel the breeze in the morning which is nice. I would recommend to eat here because you can get it done and get started with day and pool!

Enjoyable but expensive. The food was delicious, portions about right. Ambience was great being quietly uncrowded outside, comfortably well warmed. Service was fine. Awarding 4stars instead of 5 was due to the stingy SDRW discount from standard menu.

My husband and I went to dinner at 20/Twenty Bar and Grill during Restaurant Week. The wait staff was very friendly. We both ordered the New York steak and it was delicious! Cooked perfectly! We also had the lobster bisque and the burrata beet salad- so good!

Had to send meat back twice to get it right. Small portions on plate. Sever did not remove menus or salad plates after finishing. Had tp ask to have dinners plates removed when dessert was served. Had to ask to have water refilled. Could not find server to have meal sent back. Overall, not a good experience. I would not recommend it.

Excellent food and wine, however the pricey menu and majority of a la carte dishes was not worth the dining experience. We have dined at this restaurant over the last several years due to its out door dining experience, food and wine selection. This time it was too pricey even for us. Perhaps because it was closed for a considerable amount of time due to COVID, they needed to raise the prices? Not enough reason for us to return.

This has always been a favorite spot of our. As locals we love to go there and love to bring guests. It”s a beautiful spot, good food and good service is the norm. However, it has just become toooo expensive! All our guests thought the same unfortunately. Food special now topping 60$ and other things on the menu having really gone up unrealistically…Covid or not…it’s just unrealistic! ☹️.

The food was truly delicious, which saved the day, but the service was not in line with the expense of the restaurant. We had to ask a busboy to clear dirty dishes off the table and the service was consistently slow and inattentive during the entire meal. Not recommended.

Excellent dinner! When choosing to eat in a hotel adjacent to an amusement park like Legoland we knew we would be surrounded by young children. When the hotel is a Westin, you expect good quality. We ate a little later to arrive at the end of the prime time for children in the restaurant. It was noisy for the first 45 minutes but after that the noise volume was more normal. We enjoyed the restaurant. It was our anniversary, and the setting reminded us of vacations and dinners with our family at Disney World.

Don’t eat here unless you are stuck at the resort.
Service sucked! Food portions are horrible and overpriced for what you get. Did I say service sucks? Look, if you don’t have appropriate number of servers, don’t seat the tables.
We are locals and thought giving this a try would be nice, never again. Same horrible service as the sister hotel Sheraton next door called 7 mile kitchen

I do want to say Nestor the bus boy/runner was great!

We sat for 25 minutes without a single server coming over and even saying I’ll be right with you. It wasn’t busy either….we literally got up and left without a single employee noticing or saying anything. Will not come back. Menu was also tiny and nothing too exciting steak and sides mainly. Service is everything.

We walked out after viewing menu and realizing when paying $48 for a steak, we would also be charged $4 for a-1 sauce. Not that we don't have $4 but it was just the idea of it when other restaurants provide condiments.
