    The food was over priced but tasted good for a sandwich. I got a bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato sandwich which was ok but the bacon could have been cooked way more. Service was ok. However, we watched our drinks sit on the bar for 20 minutes before being brought to us.

    Nice place, adequate menu and good service. We've eaten here before on previous travels and have always enjoyed the food and the experience. This time, however, my wife and I both ordered a hamburger (I don't remember which). We both ordered medium rare, but they came well done, which reduced the flavor and made the burgers drier and not as tender. That doesn't mean we won't return on a future trip, but we may avoid the hamburgers next time.

    The food and service was great, but a group next to us didn't stop their son from being very loud throughout our dinner. It clearly wasn't the fault of the restaurant, but tainted our experience.

    Our food arrived almost an hour after we were seated. The server got our drinks wrong the first time and he repeatedly asked what we ordered. We were seated immediately and the receptionist was kind enough to grant our request to sit by the pool.

    The service was terrible, we waited forever to get our first drinks and when our burgers came out we ordered beers to go with them, the waitress didn’t come back until we were almost done to tell us the beers we chose on draft were out. The burgers were good but awful service especially when it wasn’t that busy and there were plenty of servers working.

    First night staying on site at one of the resorts and we tried this spot for dinner with our 4 year old. Our server was nice but unfortunately for her the kitchen massively let her down. Iced tea came in a dirty glass, then tasted bad. Salad came with rotting leaves that I had to pick out, which the server said she would show her manager. Then my husband’s pizza came 20 mins before mine and my daughter’s meals. When they did arrive (after asking 3x) the kids meal cheeseburger was burned and so was the bun, the broccoli on the side also charred. Server immediately brought out a replacement burger which was suitable. Our poor kid (exhausted and starving) then inhaled her meal and got a belly ache for it. We complained and the manager came over, and comped our entire bill. Which is good because I was about to nitpick the check and not pay for anything that went wrong. Comping the meal is fine but doesn’t change the fact the experience was not good and on a slow Monday to top it off. Not a great start to our vacation.

    Food was just ok for the price. We tried to go for dinner but even though the place was empty we were told there were upcoming reservations that filled the whole place. So we reserved for breakfast. Service was ok, food was not worth the price. I know being outdoors they can’t control everything, but there were a lot of bees. I’m allergic so it wasn’t a relaxing experience.

    Excellent food. The view was great. The staff was extremely helpful. A family member found this restaurant just scrolling through restaurants in Carlsbad. He liked the reviews and that they had gelato. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. It’s 5 minutes from Legoland which was a plus. A great way to spend a 45th birthday dinner. I never write reviews but in this case this is an exception.

    We were staying next door at the Westin and decided a low key dinner would be fun! We checked out the menu before and all of us decided that fish tacos sounded great! We even called ahead to see what kind of fish. Once seated we viewed the menu, the fish tacos weren’t on it. Asked the waitress who said she was new so she got the manager, Ariel. Manager is a loose term for her. Basically she said that she’s had a ton of complaints which she was relayed to upper management with no action. Oh yeah, she said that was the memo pre COVID! No sorry, no let’s see if we can make something for you, nope that was it. Bye! Too many awesome restaurants in Carlsbad. Take the opportunity to find something yummy in the village.

    We were disappointed that the online menu showed a variety of items that were vegan for breakfast. Come to find out when we get there in person you must have made the menu wrong because only one item turned out to be vegan and my sister, who the special occasion was for was not too happy. It must be a misprint and should be updated.

    Service was really suboptimal. We were seated after checking in for our reservation and waited 15 minutes and no server came by. Actually no one came by at all so we finally flagged someone down and asked if we had a server. After that, someone finally came by for the first time. In that time, another table who came after us had been seated, had their order taken, and food starting to come out. After we were finally able to order, the food then took another 30-45 minutes to come out. The food was also just so-so and not worth the wait. Good ambience of restaurant though, overlooking the pool area.

    We have gone here three times now. Each time they end seating for breakfast at 10 AM. Which is absolutely ridiculous! The food is amazing! The service is none existent. Apparently, the kitchen staff takes their break as soon as we order every time. We waited an hour and 35 minutes for breakfast.. That is totally unacceptable we will never be back again.

    We had the fish & chips and a pizza. Both were excellent. I chose the carbonara pizza with spinach, a very tasty ham, a béchamel sauce, an egg in the middle, and cheese. We were told it was a pizza for one person, but it really was plenty big enough for two people. We ended up bringing the other half of it home for breakfast the next day (it was great cold too). The gelato looked amazing but we were too full to try it.

    This is a hotel/resort restaurant. Unfortunately, it was not listed as such when I googled top restaurants in the area. Nowhere listed did it say it was in a resort. Had I known I would never have gone. There were children/families everywhere-not the adult, Friday night dining experience I was expecting. The food was bland, and tasteless. The Caesar salad was soggy with what tasted like a bottled Caesar dressing tossed on romaine lettuce. The humus had zero flavor. The hamburger was just molded meat with chopped lettuce and a tomatoe. The food was merely “resort”, feed the masses, with lack of flair and flavor. And it was expensive as a resort always is overpriced. Of all the restaurants in San Diego, choose better. This was a waste of time and money. Only redeeming quality, the service as nice.

    This is a spot with so much potential. Beautifully decorated with an outdoor/indoor set up. Fireplace, heaters for cooler days in the outdoor area - someone had a great idea in mind. But the food is just okay. Not bad, but not great either. More importantly, the service was some of the worst I've ever experienced. Our waitress was sweet, but seemed overwhelmed even though the restaurant was not full. 30-40 minutes after we placed our order, 1/2 of the orders were served. 30 minutes after that, we were still waiting for the rest our party to be served food. We had to remind the staff 3 times that we were still waiting for our meals & exactly what meals were missing. Those of us who had been served politely waited for everyone to be served their food, so those dishes were no longer warm. The staff did casually apologize but never recognized just how off the experience was. Maybe it was a bad day, but it didn't seem server-related - specific to our server. The entire staff seemed to be scrambling.
