    We ate on the patio to see the sunset view. The food was excellent and nicely presented, altho I think you need to bump up the cost symbols a notch or two. I splurged on a glass of the San Emilion wine which was disappointing. It may have been from a newly opened bottle, needing to breathe for a while before drinking. The house wine would probably have been a better choice. We did have two minor nits regarding the service. The bus boy was busy, but never asked to refill our water glasses. The other is that we ordered a salad to share and two entrees, and the salad and entrees were served at the same time. Normally, we would expect a little time to finish our salads before the main course was served. As I said, they were busy. On another note, the patio is adjacent to the bar, and the noise from the bar needs to be toned down somehow. This was our second or third time there, and had the same problem before. All in all, it was a nice evening and we will likely return in the future.

    Very disappointed with the service. We were staying at the resort and made reservations. The restaurant wasn’t busy. We were seated and then completely ignored for 30 minutes. We had to ask for a waiter. It was the worst service I’ve ever experienced.

    Great food served in a well ventilated and spread out open air dining area.Service was unnecessarily slow. The gas heating is too close to the the peripheral tables; we were slightly too warm and despite the breeze we got noticeable fumes. Just don't sit by it. We had notified them of double birthday celebration but they offered no greeting or complimentary desert to alleviate the very expensive menu.

    What a bad experience. Our friends in town all the way from Japan who we haven’t seen in years because of having babies and the pandemic. We made an Open Table reservation for 7 people at 11 am. We arrive a few minutes early and the waitress tells us the kitchen is closing in 2 minutes until 11:30. Uh ok, weird. We quickly order which isn’t easy with kids but we got it done. Super hot weather and they didn’t even give us water. Which we asked for. Waitress asks us to cash out while we are still eating which we did and she told us to stay as long as we would like. 11:30 rolls around and no one checks in on us. We were still hungry and ready for more coffee and water. I go ask someone. She tells me the kitchen is open but to go buy coffee at the coffee shop. What?! I ask again why can’t someone bring us coffee and she finally does, in to-go cups. We would have had a much better time and spent way more money at this restaurant if they were able to just check in a little bit.

    The food was Delicious and the service was amazing. We had the cheese plate and we also took the lobster risotto and for desert the upside down pineapple cake. Everything was perfect and the drinks were so good. I highly recommend the margaritas. If I wasn’t driving I would have had more then two. We ate outside and it was quite. Our server was so good on point.

    Some restaurants reopened after shutting down from Covid. This one re-opened but didn’t survive. It is a shadow of its former self sadly. Service was incredibly slow. Food was tasty, however portions and presentation were all over the place. The cost was not proportional to the quality or quantity.

    We sat indoors which had a nice ambiance but they have a lovely closed-in patio as well. Small menu but the food was excellently prepared and presented. Full bar- and has a cocktail menu and wine list. We got cocktails- highly recommend the Spanish Margarita. They also have lots of choices for high end Tequila or Single Malt Scotch if that’s your preference The lobster ravioli on the appetizer list is excellent and huge- I had this essentially as my meal along with the beet and burrata salad. Both were excellent. My husband had the Bass over risotto which he enjoyed and we had a side of broccolini which was also excellent with Romesco sauce. The desserts were also delicious- pineapple upside down cake with coconut gelato (it tasted homemade) and chocolate cremeaux with sea salt caramel gelato. Great meal- a little pricey but worth it for good food, good portions, excellent service, and a nice ambience and convenience (stayed at Marbrisa).

    I took my bf there for his birthday. I was expecting a great view and amazing food. The service was very good, the food was good but not as I expected. We didn’t enjoy the view because it was cloudy and there was no fire like the pictures suggested. I don’t think it was worth spending that much money for such an experience.

    Summer was outstanding and accommodating. I would rate our server as a 10 salad was good but the steak was undercooked and the other meat was overcooked and dry the dessert was good and Summer went out of her way to find me fresh fruit with whip cream on top. Maybe it was an off night. It can happen. I would try it again just to be fair

    This is a nice looking restaurant in the hotel lobby of the Sheraton. The menu was tiny.. 3 appetizers, 2 sandwiches to choose from and desserts. It took about 40 minutes to get our food and they got our order wrong. The Cesar Chicken salad I ordered was overdressed and very small with very little chicken. It was garnished with anchovies and quite fishy, not the normal hint of anchovie in a Cesar. Also, way too much cheese. My husband’s burger was fine but the fries were soggy. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    We were there for Mother’s Day brunch. The price was absolutely absurd for the food provided and the food was subpar. There was no view to enjoy and the service was extremely slow. A 24% tip was tacked onto the bill when we had 7 people. I am extremely disappointed and recommend not eating here unless there is no option.

    I visited the restaurant for the Mother's Day brunch and the food was decent, but not worth $120 a person. Nonetheless, I was having a fair time until I got my bill and saw that I was charged a service fee of 24% for a "large group of 20". It was just me and my 11 year old daughter there. I asked the waitress about the fee and she said it was a gratuity pool for the staff for setting up the buffet. By that time, I had already written down an additional 25% gratuity on the receipt before I realized that service fee was added. So basically they got a 50% gratuity out of me. If that is customary for this type of establishment that fine, but it was enough for me to write this review and never patronize them again.

    They couldn’t find my reservation through Open Table so we were sat at a high top in the bar area. We came for Mother’s Day Brunch at $120 a head. The food was good but not at that level. They they add a 24% gratuity on the total bill. I would have tipped well but 24% automatically on a buffet seems excessive to me. Anyway, left disappointed with the experience.

    I took my mother here for the Mother’s Day brunch. I knew in advance the cost was pretty high for this buffet. I was ok paying as the menu looked like it has some great food. We were sat outside which we requested but had I known the door from the outside area to the food was so loud I would have requested to be inside. Every 30 seconds or so the door would slam as people walked through. We ordered bottomless mimosa’s for $18 each which I thought was a pretty good price actually. The server continued to fill the glasses with champagne but never orange juice. She realized about half way through she never brought us any orange juice for the table. She was not very attentive which is pretty understandable for a buffet brunch as customers typically don’t need a whole lot. The food was good, not $120 a person good but I knew it was Mother’s Day and the price would be inflated. The fruit was fresh, there were crab legs, prime rib, and other seafood. The real kicker was when the check was delivered. There was a 24% service charge!!!! 24%!? The server was no where to be found for some time so I went to the host stand and they said it was due to the buffet and extra work that went into that. I was paying as if I hosted an event there. I was shocked. Unfortunately that was never disclosed to me that I would be paying the extra service charge on top of the high price of the meal. After the bill was paid I was pretty disappointed with the meal and overall experience. Due to the inattentiveness of the server I didn’t even get my money’s worth of bottomless mimosas.

    We've gone to the mothers day brunch for a few years now. I don't recall it being this expensive in the past but still decided to take my family this year. The staff is great and the food is good but the price has driven us to think twice about attending in the future. It's safe to say that other families thought the price was too high this time around and didn't go because it didn't look as busy as other times in the past.

    The restaurant is part of the Westin Hotel, which was within walking distance of my Sheraton Hotel. I was last here in 2019, so I was hoping the quality was still as good as it was back then. I was able to take a seat at a high table with a nice view. My server Katie was wonderful, kind, and attentive. Both dishes I ordered were delicious. The Lobster Risotto was perfectly flavored, and the Rib Eye was juicy and very tender. Too bad they didn't add a little more ambiance to the restaurant. But I will definitely come back when I stay in 1 of the two hotels again.
