The food is great, the setting is beautiful, they had great guitar and percussion player... the service was a bit challenged, but the manager went above and beyond. Coming out of Covid, we appreciate the challenges and the manager was top notch . We will surely come back.

We go here often and always enjoy it. The outside deck is lovely and the food always good. Bar drinks could use some improvement, so I usually stick to wine. Food is excellent.

We've been going to Aquaterra for many years. Unfortunately, their menu has changed (not as good), the service was not good. Once our server arrived, she was great. But we waited for a long time in the lobby to be seated (the hostess disappeared), then after being seated we continued to wait longer. I finally went and asked someone to please bring us some water.

I felt there should have been a covering for the table. At least paper placemats due to Covid.

Food was delicious, service was awesome, tables were all at least 6’ apart, and there were plenty of heaters available. I love this place! The view is fantastic if you’re lucky enough to get there during the daylight hours!

We drove from San Clemente to Pala Mesa which is about an hour, to meet my sister for lunch. She drove from Hemet, also about an hour. Even though we had reservations, it was closed. You need to do better than this!

Great food, drinks with outdoor patio and nice seating area. Also a plus is the small pond overlooking golf course

We were in the area and looking for a place to lunch. I remembered I had been there 30 years ago. Was not disappointed. Sat outside and it was a gorgeous day in November on the golf course and a beautiful landscape from the large patio.

Really friendly staff, outdoor dining with an outstanding view of the sunset. Definitely recommend the Berry Collins cocktail, pb stuffed jalapeño app, prime beef sandwich and crabcakes.

Went to Valentines Day for dinner here. Waited 10 minutes for anyone to come to our table. Had to ask repeatedly for refills of our water and tea. After 45 minutes waiting on food, they brought rolls out for us. Another 10 minutes and we had our food. Salmon was great, but service left a bad taste for us. Manager/Waitress did offer us free desserts to make up for the wait. We won't be going back.
