Mediterranean
AVEO Table + Bar masterfully blends seaside elegance with a coastal casual vibe. With sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, the restaurant’s cuisine highlights the best of the Mediterranean from Spain to Italy and from Greece to Morocco, with dishes inspired by local influences and an emphasis on organic and sustainable ingredients drawn from new and longstanding partnerships with local fishermen, ranchers, farmers and food artisans. The restaurant also offers an impressive wine list, craft beers from local breweries, and a craft cocktail program that takes a “farm-to-bar” approach by using herbs grown on-site and honey harvested from the property’s bee hives.

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.

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!

Shame- Beautiful restaurant with great food with terrible, slow service. Third time dining here and same every time. Understand wanting to present a "relaxed" dining experienced but waiting 20 minutes after sitting down to get a cup of coffee is not cool...server never coming back to see if everything is OK.....chasing down an employee to find check.. all when being told at sit-down that we needed a accelerated experienced due to another commitment.

The service was excellent. Since we had a reservation, there was no wait time. We did not go for the breakfast buffet but went with the a la carte menu. Tasted great! A bit on the pricey side, but that is to be expected. Outdoor seating was very beautiful.

Also worth coming here for breakfast if you are not staying at resort. Breakfast buffet had a great variety of choices and a good price for the sheer amt of food you can eat!

Despite the view, the place needs a little "refinement" with its operational staff. The host came across a little amateur and kept us waiting while trying to figure out if we could sit on a completely empty table one table away from ours for at least 10 minutes. Order came in wrong later with the wrong sides. Overall, the dishes were not as tasty as the pricing would have you believe. Nothing to wow about. I would have expected more "cuisine". Was just average really. What you pay for is the view which is spectacular. Just my two cents personal experience.

The food was good but service left a lot to be desired. Very nice server but seemed overwhelmed. Sent out our entrees before bread and appetizers. We ordered bottled water and tap water was sent instead. Restaurant was not busy at the time so not sure why so many basic mistakes were made. Service does not seem to be a priority on the entire resort. Better training of staff would be in order. Also had breakfast here on 2 other occasions and service issues remained prevalent.

With Bourbon Steak under the same roof, Aveo has a lot to live up to. Prices are high - as expected- but somehow all the dishes were unmemorable, except for lobster gnocchi. Wine list really lower grade and expensive for cheap wine. Great views and service.

The service was fantastic. I was with a symposium and unfortunately, people kept adding on to my table rez and changing the time. The hostess was amazing about helping to keep changing the rez and accommodating what ended up being a large party at short notice. they were very gracious and super helpful, despite an overpacked restaurant. The food was superb - slightly pricey but to be expected for a high end resort. A great experience and restaurant - not just the only choice if you don't want to leave the resort.

During our recent stay at the Monarch Beach Resort, we dined twice at AVEO (one dinner and one brunch). Both meals were excellent. From the hostesses to the servers, everyone was courteous and professional. Solene was especially helpful, going out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. Thanks!
