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.

    Sadly was one of the most unappetizing meals I’ve ate in a very long time. Extremely dry and overcooked mahi mahi and the brocollini wasn’t edible period as it was completely raw. The sashimi appetizer prior lacked any flavor as well sadly. However our server was the sweetest and most attentive so we enjoyed ourselves thanks to him. But an overhaul of the menu would raise the bar.

    Service was abysmal. Servers are not well trained and the place was empty. Food is a complete rip off and the hotel feels like a Hilton garden inn. You could pick any other spot within 30 miles and have a better experience.

    Andrea (server) was punctual and professional. Final bill was weird. We modified items during our order to fit our vegan lifestyle by removing animal protein, but we were still charged for the protein!!!! This is a rip and not vegan friendly. Come Waldorf Astoria, you can do better.

    We ate indoors since it was a cold evening. But the inside had too much AC, and the server did not seem to want to convey our message about turning it off. Acoustically the room is too noisy. Otherwise, the food was great.

    Service was truly outstanding and the hotel is as beautiful as ever. But the food… WA took the kitchen down four notches. Remember their awesome seafood tower and fresh fish? All gone. We had a questionably prepared caesar and a lobster roll that was hard to distinguish from tuna salad. Please consider and fix? We love the Monarch and hate to see it degrade. Thank you! And thanks again to our wonderful server and service.

    We expect to pay a premium at Waldorf. That’s fine. But service was awful. Kind staff but ridiculously short staffed so you wait and wait for attention. Seemed all diners got up from their tables to seek help. C’mon Waldorf you must do better than this and not put your limited staff in a horrible position.

    View and setting is great but the food is a little overpriced. You just have to understand that you’re paying for the exceptional view and a nice time out - all the food selections we’ve tried so far have been good but still not worth the pricing.

    We had high hopes for Aveo Table but were disappointed in our dinner. The crab appetizer and cocktails were excellent. The service was pleasant but impersonal and our server rarely checked on us. We had to ask for silverware between courses, water and butter for the bread. The Caesar salad was ok but severed with uncut bunches of leaves and they forgot to leave off the dead anchovies. The hamburger was ok, but they did not cook it correctly - we asked for medium-well and got rare. The salmon was fine but not much flavor. Their wines by the glass are limited and most are foreign and not familiar to us. The Heitz cab we ordered was served a bit warm and it did not taste fresh. For $250, we expected a lot more than just a view of the ocean. We will not likely return but did enjoy the view and hope this restaurant can get it together in the future.

    The food was delicious but the service was terrible. After we got seated it took the waitress 15 min to greet us. Even after our order she never came back to check upon us. We definitely expected a higher level of service from a place like this.
