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.

This was our 1st visit to Aveo. While it was nice, it did not blow us away. Overall, disappointed. We might visit again to give it another try, but it will likely be a while.

Dinner tonight was amazing! Perfect weather and the food and wine were great. The waitstaff was very friendly and always checking in on us as we were waiting for the food to arrive and during our meal. The views from the elevated balcony were amazing! We will definitely be back to enjoy a happy hour and enjoy the fire pit!!

We have eaten at Aveo many times. Honestly, it has always been hit or miss. We really go for the atmosphere. This time we went to unwind and have a drink and a dinner. The Veuve was wonderful! The waitress put in the wrong flatbread, so we waited for the correction to be made. The lobster roll was less than satisfying.

Even though this restaurant is part of a hotel (and the hotel appears to be gorgeous! and we were not staying at the resort), the restaurant overlooks the golf course out to the ocean. The view is beautiful, the food is fantastic (best salmon that I have had in a while), the service was delightful etc. It is really a special place to go. I know that sometimes people don't like restaurants in hotels, this is an exception and we would all highly recommend and will return! So nice to be out and talking to a great waitstaff!

Waldorf isn't what it used to be. This restaurant is mediocre at best after a few visits since we're staying here. The food sounds appealing but the execution is just average.

Great casual fare. We sat outdoors and it was freezing cold (rainy and windy), but our waiter was excellent and very accommodating, dragging every heater in the near vicinity to warm us up. Would go back.

Although, the views are beyond beautiful, the service was not. Our server was fine in the beginning and they she was MIA. She messed up the order and forgot an entree. When asked if we wanted regular fries or truffle fries, she didn't mention the $6 up charge for truffle. We were quite surprised when the bill came. We asked for it to be adjusted and told her it seemed expensive for truffle fries and her response was, "$6 is expensive?" which made us very uncomfortable. When she went to adjust the bill, she took and additional 20 minutes which I can't imagine it would ever take that long. Not what we were expecting.

It took over one hour to get our food after ordering and that was after asking the server 3 times when it would be coming. Waters were never filled and food was mediocre. Gratuity was charged despite the horrible service.

Seemed understaffed. Staff was friendly and attentive but hit and miss on getting drinks refilled, water refilled or even getting place settings for our second seating later that day.

Great place to go if you want to enjoy the view. Prices are to be expected at a 5 star resort. I believe the drinks were $18 each. Service was super slow but we enjoyed the atmosphere. Only the patio outside was open for dining.

Well I have missed Monarch Beach being open and now it is classified as a Waldorf Astoria, it seems they are trying to offset some of the losses from being closed by increasing prices!

So, whilst I love going here I think we will be giving it a miss for the foreseeable future, plenty of other options, equally as good, but without the increased, and in my opinion, overly inflated prices.

Shame really.

Their first day back open the service was very slow which I expected as they are getting back into the hang of things. We ordered our food and it didn’t come out till 50 minutes later. Also found the portions to be enormous for lunch so we had plenty left over. The ambiance is nice. They only have our door seating available for now.

Great location with beautiful ocean views overlooking the golf course. They serve hot focaccia bread with both butter & a tomato coulis to begin the meal which was delicious. I started with the burrata vegetable soup which was fair, lacking in flavor & heartiness. And then had the roasted vegetables, which was some carrots & a beet with goat cheese. They lack for plant based options but location is great.
