Although the food was very good, it was very much overpriced. The ambience for inside seating was extremely disappointing. Outdoor seating would be much better, weather permitting.
Service was very very slow two days in a row.
Our food took more than 45 minutes to arrive .nobody checked out on us except ones didnt expect this service from this resort .
Too many toddlers who were not seated, and often screaming was a huge detriment to our meal.
Considering the cost of our meal, this was very unpleasant . Also the strong florescent lighting is not good for ambiance. This is all unfortunate since the food is very good, drinks as well.
I think it may have just been a weird night for them, but the service was painfully slow. I hate to blame our server because she was sweet, but we sat for 15 mins before anyone came up to our table to even take a drink order. That being said, the food was great and staff was very friendly. Overall a good experience and I would recommend it.
Bad service, mediocre food. Other customers also complained
We arrived just before sunset and sat inside. Just prior to the sunset the sun shades are drawn to appreciate the sunset view. The service was excellent and the food was great, a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
Wonderful experience dining here at sunset! Excellent food and perfect service.
It was a little slow night, so I don’t think we got the ambiance that we expected. Good service !
Tower is excellent and Hospitality of Employees is High End service!!
We watched the sunset from the upstairs patio at the MBR. The hotel is elegant and yet laid back with a friendly California vibe. They had an amazing musician playing the violin while friends gathered to listen and watch the sunset. AVEO was billed as a lively and bustling restaurant but it was not that. While the food was quite good it wasn’t exactly the kind of experience we were hoping for. It may have the season or that it was early evening. They have outdoor seating with a beautiful ocean view and they were very kind to bring a heater over to our table. We would definitely give it another try and I’d live to stay at MBR the next time we are in Laguna/Dana Point
Great views, limited lunch menu but good selections.
Very poor all around. Outside and no heat lamp was brought. Managers all avoiding fixing any problems or even apologizing for poor service. Drinks took 50 mins to show up and first course took almost an hour and a half. New Years with a. Fixed menu.
Patio was nice quiet and warm! Food was incredible as well as service ‼️
The service is always extra great. Special nods should go to staff members Jose and Nick for their knowledge of the menu as well as their excellent care for us patrons.
good food. good service. pricey but you get what you pay for. will definitely go back to this place.
Great Christmas Eve dining for our family. Nice and quiet, food was excellent and our waitress was OUTSTANDING!
We had a wonderful night celebrating my son's girlfriends birthday!! The food was very very good and they made a special delicious dessert for her that they brought out with a candle. The service was wonderful as well. Very nice evening.
Had the salmon and it was awesome. Service was beyond great and it definitely was one of the best lunch experiences I’ve had in a long time.
omlet not prepared correctly no juice, coffee wrong not a good experience usually they are great.
We were celebrating a milestone birthday and the chef prepared a very special dessert for our table
We came for the Thanksgiving Day brunch as we are out of our home during renovations, and the four of us all enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service immensely. We were greeted and seated immediately, and were fortunate enough to have Omar serving our table. Omar was personable and attentive. He did a great job seeing that we had everything we wanted to drink, and he was available to answer questions. Everyone we came across was pleasant and professional. Particularly enjoyed an exchange with Tanny, the chef at the omelet bar. He was entertaining and funny, as well as a good chef! The sushi and sashimi were fresh and fantastic, and the omelet was delicious. Also highly recommend the bread pudding from the dessert bar.
The restaurant was beautiful; unfortunately due to weather our view wasn’t as good as it might have been. Overall I can say my husband and two of our adult children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon at Aveo, and we will be back for a more typical meal.
Fabulous food and spectacular service stunning view
When we showed up, all seeking on patio was empty except for 1 table. We asked to move over 1 table for a better view, but we're told this was only table they could offer us. No one else sat at the other tables all night. I ordered a sangria; it was watered down with 3 small chunks of apple and no berries. My friend ordered a mixed drink with only a hint of alcohol. The guys received their beer in a tall.skinny flute that tasted like a lesser known beer. At 19$ a drink, even a small buzx would have been welcomed...nope. Then, out $42 a plate scallops came with literally 3 scallops balancing on finely chopped handful of potatoes with argula between the 3 scallops. Now. If they had been tasty, still might have been worth it... they weren't :( The lamb dinner was average...get better at Outback for half the cost. Then, the chocken pasta? Well, if you like dry chicken that makes you hang out in the bathroom all night then go. Ahead and try it...blah. :( The service was very ordinary and scarce despite only 2 small parties on the patio. For a $260 dinner for 4 people we were expecting a little bit more. We normally would have desert and coffee, but since dinner was so blah...we went simewhere else. Not a problem, but note that you have to have your car valet parked too. Sadly, disaapointed and won't be back.
Food and service were excellent. Omar was so very attentive! We will be back 😊
They staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate our anniversary. Everything from the food to the service was perfect.
Service and desserts excellent. Food not so much. I would return for dessert and coffee.
Very nice experience
I HAVE MY SON IN FROM AUSTRALIA AND WANTED TO GO HERE AS I HAVE IN THE PAST. AT NOON NOTHING WAS READY, TABLES WERE NOT CLEARED, SEEMED SHORTHANDED, AND IN GENERAL NOT HAPPY.
This was a trip for a local senior community and from arrival to departure the experience was excellent. Thank you Monarch Beach and Aveo for a wonderful dining experience!
We had a lovely lunch on the outdoor patio. The service was excellent . . . very friendly and attentive. Our meal was superb in every way. We look forward to returning!
Excellent view with exceptional service by the staff there. Could not ask for a better venue to have lunch. Thanks for a great experience.
It started out so promising as a date night but quickly went downhill from there. We love this hotel and have had drinks in the bar frequently. But this time it was clear that diners on the terrace were not a priority. After our first drinks and appetizers we were basically abandoned. We finally cancelled our mains, paid the check and left. The floor manager apologized and was embarrassed as we left and made the excuse that the hotel was busy with parties etc. We all know, including him, that that is never an excuse for poor service. I do want commend one of the busboys (sorry I didn't get his name) who made effort to keep us warm by hauling a heater (unsolicited) to our table and tried to get it to work. It was out of gas, and so were we. We left and found a brand new restaurant (Project Social) 2 blocks away to have a delicious burger. It's our new go to for a casual, fun, quick meal.
A splendid place to take vacationing friends to. I met my friend from New York here and we had a blast dining in the patio and enjoyed multiple appetizers, tapas style.
Two of us ordered Caesar salads which comes with a soft boiled egg. Neither of us got the egg so we had to wait for it to be added. The salads were good however. The value wasn't that good as it wasn't much food. View was outstanding and the reason we came.
Four of us enjoyed a most delightful luncheon inside the restaurant this past week. The weather was beautiful, but it was a bit windy, we chose to sit inside, The four of us had the soup, salad and 1/2 sandwich special of the day, which was wonderful! The vegetable soup with the dollop of burrata was excellent, the tangerine, arugula, fennel salad was flavorful and the 1/2 Rubin sandwich was delicious. It was a lovely afternoon and highly enjoyed by the four of us. The staff was very attentive without being intrusive. It was a perfect afternoon. Thank you!
Perfect! Everything about our dinner was fabulous!!!
Calamari ordered was overly breaded and cook too much. Very limited menu.
