We were staying nearby (in from out of town). The patio views are beautiful and the food fantastic. We were a little concerned about service at first. We arrived a few min before our reservation, with a 5-year old in tow, were seated and then forgotten about for a good 15 min. No waters, silverware, nothing. We were then told by another server that our server had gone on break and they didn't know when he would be back. Luckily, another server took over our table and she was wonderful. She made us feel very comfortable. Overall we had a very nice evening.

The food and service were outstanding! We had mother's day brunch here! The restaurant is located inside/outside at the Sheraton hotel very close to Legoland. Thus there were a lot of kids. My husband and I have nothing against kids (we have 4 grown between us) but good to know if you are looking for a quiet surroundings. Restaurant is also located a bit "in the middle of nowhere" so know that. Otherwise there were plenty of heaters and surroundings were nice. Again, food was great and our waiter was super nice and friendly! Would definitely go back.

We have had dinner and brunch here before so we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day a day early here. It took over an hour to get our drinks and finished our meals in 2.5 hours by the time we signed for our checks. Come to find out our waiter was on his second day. We all felt bad for him as this was not his fault, it lies with management for putting him in such a a horrible position on a holiday weekend. Love this place before but not sure we would come back now.

I will start this by saying I don’t usually post negative reviews.. They initially sat us down outside and the table had not been wiped down. We asked to be move inside because it was cold and windy. There were lots of table available inside. They said they weren’t sure if they could do that because of reservations. I said but we had a reservation and had asked for inside in the reservation. They finally sat us inside. Again the table had not been wiped down. In fact if you looked around all the table tons had not been wiped down. My mom and I ordered a Bloody Mary. The waiter walks away before taking my husbands order.... it took a long time 25 minutes to get 2 drink and the place was almost empty. He asked if we know what we wanted and my husband says I would like to order a drink. He asked about one the menu and the waiter stated he did not like that one but made no suggestion of something else. This guy clearly had no training at all. He ended ordering an IPA. But the waiter again took off before we could ask any questions about the menu. Again 25 minutes for a beer. We ordered and the food was expensive and so mediocre. $5 for 2 piece of small undercooked bacon. It’s really hard to mess up breakfast food but they managed. All three meals were bad and it took 45 minutes to get the food. No one checked on us. No one came to pick up dirty plates, see it we wanted another drink. I guess they feel they have a captive audience of tourists. We are locals. We don’t mind paying hotel prices for a nice ambiance and good food but Shame on Hilton/Sheraton. We have been rewards members for many years but if this it the new standard we may have seek other options and certainly won’t recommend this place to family and friends. Training staff is so important on all level.

The food was not good and was priced quite high. I ordered the fresh catch tacos and it was two fish stick looking things on homemade corn tortillas that were thick and barely edible. My friend ordered the shrimp linguine and even though the pasta was okay, there was definitely something wrong with the shrimp and she wasn’t able to eat it.
This resort area needs some better moderate priced restaurants.

Loved this place for a girls brunch. We were seated outside and our server was very attentive and flexible to our needs. Great ambiance. The only somewhat downside is that the outdoor area is near the hotel pool so it can be noisy with kids splashing about but it wasn’t too bad on Sunday at 10:30 am. Great place!

When you participate in restaurant week, make sure you have the ingredients.
It was kind of a joke to not have mixed greens, sausage, tangerines, bolognese, etc.

Again, service was great but they need to learn how to order food.

Overall good experience, especially coming off COVID lockdown. A couple of issues w food and wine: two takes to get food right (as stated on menu, not some special order) and glass of Riesling was spoiled bottle had been opened to long and expired...). They corrected and wait staff could not have been more pleasant/helpful, but it really detracted from experience. We will try again.

Meh. Food was not great. View and location was nice though.
Ordered a Patty Melt, they said it came with cheddar. When it arrived it had swiss (ok) and no grilled onions. Bread looked like it was toasted on a grill and had no butter on it - just dry.
Service was ok. The hostess was very concerned about timing, me waiting 4 mins for my friend to park even though there were plenty of open tables. It was not busy at all. Maybe 4 tables had people sitting at them. Waiter was nice but never saw him again after food was delivered. Mimosa was very small - like getting half a glass of wine.
We won't be back. Too many other great brunch places in the area.
